Eye Shadow - Melt Cosmetics - Gemini Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

5 days ago

The Gemini is a ten pan palette with two shimmers and eight mattes, and a color story of browns, greens and mustardy shades.

I'll start off with the negatives. The shimmer shades in here are incredibly messy to use, even with glitter glue. The formula is thinner and grainy, and the colors sheer out almost entirely once applied. Goalz is workable on its own if you heavily pack it on …

Powder - Too Faced - Peach Blur Translucent Smoothing Finishing Powder – Peaches and Cream Collection

4.0
Created with Sketch.

24 days ago

This was my first Too Faced product, and I enjoyed it so much that I panned the first one, and picked up a replacement at TJ Maxx. I use this product almost everyday, and it's definitely a step in my makeup routine that I never skip.

The Peach Blur Finishing powder is a pressed product that comes in a sturdy, square shaped compact and has a soft peach scent to it. It is a very …

Sunscreen - Etude House - Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk SPF50+ / PA+++

4.0
Created with Sketch.

24 days ago

After going through several sunscreens that claimed to be "matte" or "non-greasy" I finally found one that lived up to the hype.

I have very oily, sensitive skin and a lot of sunscreens either turn my face red or they make it impossible to wear foundation due to the greasy residue they leave behind. This sunscreen, however, dries VERY matte. I actually like to wear …

Bronzers - FLOWER Beauty - Heatwave Luminous Bronzer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Heatwave is a marbled shimmer bronzer that comes in a clear compact and has a luminous finish. I found it to be a versatile product, as I used it both as a bronzer and an eyeshadow.

I'll start off with the negatives. Based off the reviews on the FLOWER Beauty site, I bought the darkest shade, which is Sunswept, and it gives me a subtle, sunkissed look. I'm a NW10 in MAC, so I …

Blush - Cat Cosmetics - Whiskers Universial Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Despite having a large blush collection, this is one of the few blushes I have managed to pan and repurchase. If you can't tell, it's my all-time favorite blush, and it always survives my declutters.

Whiskers is a pressed blush that comes in a 36mm pan. It's a soft rosy pink with peach undertones and a luminous finish. I like that it has a very subtle gold shimmer to it …

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This is an okay perfume, but it wasn't a favorite for me. It wears subtly, with almost no projection or sillage, and has overall poor longevity. Depending on the perfume, I'm usually a 1-3 squirt wearer. Flowerbomb was so weak I actually had to do 5-6 squirts, which I'd never normally do with a perfume. And even with that amount it was barely noticeable.

When I first …

Polishes - Cirque Colors - Succulent Garden

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I was getting a little discouraged with Cirque Colors because I did a small haul to try them out and so far I didn't enjoy any of the polishes I used (Storm King and Midnight Cowboy). Succulent Garden, though? I'm loving this polish. Finally!

This goes on opaque in two coats, and matches the picture on the Cirque Colors website. It's a medium green base with a gorgeous …

Concealers - Kevyn Aucoin - The Etherealist Super Natural Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I picked this up in two shades, and while I enjoyed using them there are some issues that made me dock a couple of stars.

This is a lite coverage concealer with a nice subtle shimmer to its finish. I was surprised that it was a sheerer formula because Kevyn Aucoin base products are usually pretty full coverage, or at least buildable to medium coverage. This concealer does not build …

Polishes - Cirque Colors - Nail Polish - Midnight Cowboy

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is a gorgeous blackened Navy. I was able to achieve opaque coverage in two coats, but the application was difficult and the wear time poor.

This was a runny formula, which required the skin around my nail being cleaned up with a q-tip soaked in polish remover. It really stained my skin and the nail as well.

I'd recommend removing this very carefully. It smeared all …

Polishes - Cirque Colors - Nail Polish - Storm King

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Storm King is a lovely pale blue-grey color. While I think the shade is absolutely stunning, I was disappointed with its overall performance.

The formula for Storm King was difficult to apply. The first and second coats were extremely streaky, even over a clear base coat. It was a thinner formula and I had issues with it running all over. The initial application on my thumb nail looked …
