Sunscreen - Peter Thomas Roth - Max Mineral Naked Broad Spectrum SPF 45

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

I didn’t think I’d like a sunscreen as much as my HG Australian Gold Botanical Mineral Tinted SPF50 but this is a wonderful sunscreen, probably even nicer but definitely more expensive. It is the one I have been reaching for as the weather turned cooler and AG can be quite matte/drying on my already dry skin. Conversely, PTR Max Mineral SPF is creamy and sinks into the skin like a whipped …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Poreless Putty Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

This is a wonderful pore filling primer and while not an exact dupe for Tatcha’s Silk Canvas primer, this is worth so much more than it’s economical price tag. Did you know they make a small size of this in a squeezy tube, perfect for travel? Or in my case as someone that doesn’t use primer very often it is great to have a small size option to use when required. Depending on the foundation I’m …Read more

Brows - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Beautifully Bare Sheer Tint Brow Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

If you are looking for an extremely skinny wand with very short bristles look no further. This comes in 4 shades: clear, light, medium, and dark, so there is something for everyone to choose from. I have purchased and used the clear and medium shades. There is decent hold to this gel, no fibers, and brow hairs do not feel stiff or crunchy while wearing it. The only potential issue is that …Read more

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - 360 Ultimate Blend kit

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 days ago

This kit contains 3 densely packed, soft bristled, flat top brushes in varying sizes. One for foundation, another for cream blush, bronzer, contour, and the smallest for concealer, but I’ve used this for cream highlighter and it works well for that too. I had been eyeing these up for well over a year and after reading on the MUB (thanks jenfab) how great these were I knew it was time to get …Read more

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - 360 Ultimate Sheer

5.0

Labelled as a brush for bronzer, this duo fiber stippling brush is the perfect blend of softness with some structure to really give a beautiful finish on the skin. But, the best use I’ve found for this brush is to blend the Kevyn Aucoin Foundation Balm into the skin. I’m sure any cream type of foundation would work but specifically used with the KA it goes something like this... Tap the brush …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

I thought I’d really like this but as it turns out, not so much. The texture is nice enough, a creamy lotion/oil, medium viscosity, not runny, nor thick. However, this does not foam up all that well and what’s worse is that I don’t especially care for the way my skin feels after using this cleanser. I routinely use cream or milky lotion type cleansers for my dry skin but this felt like it just …Read more

Brows - Ardell - Brow Building Fiber Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

Found this by accident at Winners, I actually didn’t even know this product existed from Ardell but I saw it had a tiny brush and since I like their brow pomade figured what the h*ll and picked one up in Dark Brown (a very neutral toned brown). The first thing I noticed is that the formula is much drier than other brow gels and honestly it is way better because of that (in my opinion) because it …Read more

Brows - theBalm Cosmetics - Furrowcious Eyebrow Pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

I used to use the more triangular/teardrop shaped brow pencils when not using a pomade however I wanted to give this ultra skinny pencil a try and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. Even the skinny but sturdy spoolie on the end is fantastic. The formula is somewhat waxy and smudge-proof which makes for a long-lasting wear time. This pencil is offered in 3 very accommodating shades: Blonde …Read more

Pressed Powders - essence - Brighten Up! Banana Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Not like I needed a banana powder, I mean, I rarely use a setting or finishing powder let alone a brightening one but I couldn’t pass this up. The packaging is sleek, very thin, and the powder is silky, much like the essence blush products. If and when I use any powder products I always use a hydrating or setting spray afterward else I look “powdery” and having dry skin makes this look worse …Read more

Blush - bareMinerals - Bounce & Blur Powder Blush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Blush is my Achilles heel when it comes to makeup. I love cream blush, stick blush, powder blush, cream to powder blush. If there is one product I would not do without (besides brows) it is blush.

Bounce & Blur comes in 4 shades: Mauve Sunrise, Pink Sky, Blurred Buff, and the one I purchased, Coral Cloud. Despite the name, this does not have a “bouncy” texture to it, but it does …
