Eye Shadow - Coloured Raine - LOVELIES Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

The Coloured Raine mini palettes were supposed to be limited edition and discontinued long ago, but they have stuck around for a long time on sale. Lovelies seems to be one of the less popular options, with Beauty Rust and Berry Cute getting most of the attention. When I looked at the mini palettes range, I felt that I had more than enough warm-toned eyeshadows similar to Beauty Rust and Berry …Read more

Highlighters - Unlisted Brand - Milk Makeup Holographic Stick: Supernova

I'm so sad and disappointed with this purchase. Why, oh why, did I get sucked in to the hype? Why did I believe the Youtube videos, with the reviewers sitting under their ring lights, wearing shocked expressions as they gushed about the glow? All I can say is I'm glad I bought the mini version.

If you want a subtle, pearly highlight, you might like this. But a holographic …

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Absolute New York- Glossy Stain- Femme Fatale

This amazing, cheap, difficult-to-find product is a much-too-well-kept secret. Do you want that lip colour that lasts ALL DAY through EVERYTHING? Do you kind of want that Lipsense product, but don't like the burning alcohol sensation or the MLM business model? This lipstick is everything you want and need in your life!

First of all, I live in Canada and literally cannot get this …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick (All Shades)

This is an excellent matte bullet lipstick. I have three shades- Strawberry Daiquiri, Angel, and Indie Flick. I'll probably review the shades individually but Strawberry Daiquiri is my favourite; it's my perfect nude peach! As others have mentioned it is a non-drying matte formula that doesn't tug and pull at your lips. The right balance of moisture and matte. Coverage is even and …Read more

Brows - essence - Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara

5.0

Jun/30/2018

This is an excellent, inexpensive brow mascara to quickly darken, fill in, and tidy your brows. The look is very natural but pulls your look together. For me, it's perfect for most everyday looks. If you like a strong, dark, Instagram brow, you'll need to supplement with a pencil or pomade. Most days though, this all I use. I'm on my second or third tube. They last a while, but as …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

Apr/14/2018

Never seen results from a product so fast! Makes me appear glowing and smooth! Love that it's a 2-3 times per week treatment because the bottle will last a long time. More antioxidants are always good for anti-aging! This smelled very weird at first, I wasn't disgusted but it was definitely odd. But the smell mellowed out after a few uses, probably from the product getting hit by the …Read more

I've been using the Moisture Boost cream and it's worked well for me. I wanted to give this a go to see if it was a better fit, since it's also for dry skin. Some of the ingredients appealed to me and the Skin Recovery toner has been a good match for my skin. This cream seemed to work OK at first. Then my skin got hella dry. Day and night, it felt tight and scaly. I even got some …Read more

I like the finish and coverage of this product. You do not need a lot to get the job done- it is quite thick and good coverage. Start with a half pump and work your way up- a full pump is way too much. It doesn't last as well as some higher priced formulas, but it does pretty decent throughout the day.

When I bought this, Porcelain was the lightest shade. It was definitely too …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Peaceful

I'm happy I bought this blush, it is my go-to shimmery peach blush right now. I agree that this is a more peachy and less shimmery version of NARS Orgasm. To me, it seems much more pigmented as well. It lasts very well on my skin- I can still see it on my face near the end of the day. The Tarte blushes do require a bit of a heavier hand- because they have clay, it is a "stiffer" …Read more

Styling Products - Cake Beauty - The Locks Smith Hydrating Dry Conditioner Spray

This isn't for you if you only wear your hair straight. If you have naturally straight hair that you sometimes wear curly or wavy (like me), and you want to extend time between washes, then it's for you. I assume that it would be good for naturally curly or wavy hair as well.
I haven't tried a dry conditioner before. I was intrigued because I try to wait as long as possible …
