Primer/ Corrector - Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter

5.0

4 days ago

For dry skin girls and boys out there - this is fantastic! Healthy glow in a bottle.

Imagine having a hydrating primer, subtle tint and highlighter all in one? Well, you're looking at Hollywood Flawless Filter darling. At first I was not sure how it would actually look on the skin; particularly - whether it would give any sort of coverage, because many people say that they use this …

Cleansers - Caudalie - Vinopure Pore Purifying Gel Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

Vinopure is a wonderful range geared towards people with combo, oily skin types. Powered by salicylic acid, this is a wonderful line to use for when things go haywire! (clogged pores, breakouts - you name it).

Personally speaking, I was not sure just how well it would suit my Sahara dry skin. And I rarely use gel cleanser, mainly due to the fact that they can strip skin like no other …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating SPF 30

5.0

If you love that natural skin glow, you're going to adore this revamped version of the Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating.

Not only is it SPF 30 now, but it has a few more shades, which is a nice addition to the Laura's product portfolio. Although my skin is dry, I would not use this tinted moisturizer on its own. When not careful, it might turn you into a shiny ball, so make …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating SPF 30

4.0

11 days ago

Almost everyone loved the original version of this Tinted Moisturizer back in the day and thankfully the brand recently added more shades to the range and modernized the original formula to make it even better.

Between the two, I prefer the new SPF 30 version. It blends with ease, looks great on the skin and wears beautifully well throughout the day. Now, of course it will fade quicker …

Primer/ Corrector - Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Vanish Color Corrector

5.0
Created with Sketch.

24 days ago

As someone with hereditary dark circles, I have tried every corrector under the sun.

I have been only using Tarte CC for many years now, but here comes Charlotte. Unlike Tarte's formula, this new Magic Vanish Color Corrector has more of a satin finish and comes in four shades (designed for different skin tones). Shade "Medium" covers my dark circles really well, without …

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer

3.0

30 days ago

As much as I wanted to love this new concealer, sadly I do not think it is perfect for people with dry skin types.

Now, the shade range is a bit poor. There is very little to choose from, I am kind of surprised to see such a limited color selection especially from Benefit.

This formula though is quite long-lasting and uber pigmented. It is not as opaque in coverage as say Shape …

Primer/ Corrector - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Primer

3.0

2 months ago

Not that it is a bad product, it is actually quite nicely formulated (minus an occasional peeling here and there) - I just think it is not a total necessity.

I got this together with the brand's new hydrating foundation and after doing an infamous Youtube half/half face test, I've noticed that "no-primer" side of my face looked much more natural, less shiny (that is …

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation

5.0

Hello new favorite foundation!

If you have drier skin type and had no luck with Fenty Beauty's original "Soft Matte" foundation, this could be the one for you. There are a lot of similarities between the two (price, amount of product, adjustable coverage), yet this new formula performs even better on someone, who craves more hydration and enjoys that natural, semi-glowy …

Treatments (Eye) - Drunk Elephant - Shaba Complex™ Eye Serum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

While I love and generally have more luck with other Drunk Elephant products (Lala, Framboos, Marula to name a few), this Shaba Eye Serum turned out to be somewhat a disappointment.

While it has some wonderful claims and even considering that I do not have massive concerns being in my 20s, I still did not see any results. If anything, my under eye is even drier than it used to be before …

Mascara - CHANEL - Le Volume Revolution de Chanel Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Already bought two back-ups (just in case)

I bloody love this mascara. I still need to try the original version, but Revolution is absolutely brilliant for people who lack lash volume. I have naturally long, lifted lashes, but they can appear a touch sparse at times depending on what mascara I use. I do think that I need to go through my lashes with a lash separator (not a big deal for …
