Mascara - REVLON - Volumazing Waterproof Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

4 days ago

I love the packaging on this, especially the cap that looks like water droplets on it. However, that's the extent of the love. I couldn't get this on without getting it all over my lid (my incompetence?) and it clumped my lashes together and made them look spidery. No volume at all. I put the mascara aside for a couple of weeks, thinking it needed to dry out a bit, but it only got …Read more

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess Waterproof False Lash Effect Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

24 days ago

I'd read and watched some great reviews on this mascara so had high hopes. I really like the packaging, and the mascara had some weight to it, making it feel more expensive than it is. When I first applied it, I found it didn't add much volume, which I'd hoped, but it did add length. It was also relatively clumpy and I had to bring out my lash comb, which I don't need for my …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

4.0

1 month ago

I stumbled upon some reviews for this and wondered why they were so high. I can only think it hadn't crossed my path before because I have oily skin and the idea of anything with shine on my face was weird. However, I'm getting older (45 next week) and my skin seems to be a little less oily than it has been. I've also found my Coty Airspun was looking a little dry on my face and I …Read more

Liquid - Too Faced - Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

I have used EDDW for about 10 years and have had trouble finding something new. I really love this foundation and keep oscillating between it and the Double Wear. I'm an NC13 and in the winter have used Snow and in the summer, Porcelain (I think Snow may be a tad too light). I wear Ecru in DW. The Too Faced goes on nicely and covers most of my problems without looking cakey. I like the less …Read more

Cleansers - Pond's - Makeup Remover Cleansing Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I started using this about a week ago after seeing some reviews, and so far, I love it! I've tried a couple of other balms, including the Ordinary and No7 Radiant Results Nourishing Balm. I really like the Ordinary for travel since it comes in a tube, but didn't love the No7; I didn't like that I had to use a washcloth to wipe away the excess and it never seemed to completely wash …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I tried the regular Lash Paradise about a year ago and didn't like it. I have straight lashes, so curl them, and the original just took any curl out of them. I'd heard the waterproof version was better for curled lashes, so picked up a tube since the reviews were so good. I've been using it for about 3 weeks, and I'm not that impressed. It's definitely a black black …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Morphe - Highlight & Contour Beauty Sponge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I bought this after hearing people rave about it on YT. I'd heard it was a bit denser than the Real Techniques sponge, but was quite surprised at how much more when I first tried it. At first I was sure I'd hate it, but I actually really like it! I've never tried a BB although I have two, so can't compare, but I would repurchase this sponge. My foundation goes on smoothly and …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Blending Sponge

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I bought this after reading rave reviews and seeing some YouTubers talk about it. I found it kind of meh. The texture isn't bad and it's pretty spongy, but I felt it held a lot of water, regardless of how much I tried to wring it out. Because it was so damp, it would sheer out my foundation and often ended up wiping off a lot of it. The price is so-so for this, and I like the Real …Read more

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

3.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I received two samples of this as I tried to decide if I should keep the Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation I bought. I wore the Fenty for a couple of days and at first was impressed, but I did notice that it started to break up around my chin and nose close to the end of my workday. I gave it another shot today, and at first thought I would return the Too Faced foundation, but after blotting and …Read more

Blush - theBalm Cosmetics - Blush - Hot Mama

I was pleasantly surprised by this! I'd been wanting to try Nars Orgasm, but didn't really want to pay the price, and I was nervous the glitter would be too much. After some research, TheBalm Hot Mama came up as a dupe. I ordered it, and I actually really like it!

I'm half Asian, half caucasian, and an NC20 in Mac and wear Ecru in Double Wear and Snow in Too Faced Peach …
