Blush - The Body Shop - Lip & Cheek Stain

5.0

Mar/09/2018

I have this in the colour Dark Cherry. I've tried other pinks and reds in this line, but Dark Cherry is the only colour that looks really natural against my fair-medium skin. (All of the reds look the same as each other on the cheeks, and same for the pinks, but the real difference between shades can be seen on the lips.)

I love it. I use it as a base under sheerer lipsticks. When …

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

5.0

Mar/09/2018

I have been using this product since I first got into makeup in my teens. I'm 21 now and love it just the same, albeit for different reasons.

I used to apply this all over my face with the puff and it would look powdery and flat. It was definitely noticeable. The lasting powder was good, but perhaps those with oily or combination skins would suit this more as a full-on foundation …

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2018

I have normal, unproblematic skin - the only problem it poses is the occasional dry patch if I'm not feeling too good or haven't exfoliated well enough. I also get shinier throughout the day in my T-zone, which is why I bought this product. I use just a little less than a pea-sized amount for the entire face, which I warm up between my fingers and apply all over, making sure to …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Pure Zen

5.0

Mar/09/2018

Pure Zen is a fabulous everyday peachy nude. I don't usually like glossy lipsticks, but this formula seems to be the exception: it leaves your lips looking moist and plump rather than exceedingly shiny and sticky. I've tried other Cremesheens in the past and did not like them - so much so that I would actively avoid this finish - but Pure Zen performs really well. I only need one or two …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Kinda Sexy

This lipstick is amazing! On my NC25-30 complexion, Kinda Sexy borders on a nude but not quite. It's the perfect soft vintage peach that I imagine would suit a lot of skin tones. The colour really brightens up my face, especially when I'm feeling dull and sallow - it's the perfect pick-me-up. Sometimes I want Kinda Sexy to be a true peachy nude, so to make it lighter I add on a bit …Read more

Lip Treatments - Carmex - Moisturizing Lip Balm

3.0

Mar/08/2018

I have this in the tube variant. Tube packaging is my favourite as opposed to pots which are unhygienic and sticks which tend to be drier.

Product feels good and performs well upon first application - I love that tingling sensation. I'm not so much a fan of the shiny look, which is mainly caused by over-application; however, even though I've learned to control how much …

Mascara - Topshop - False Lash Intense Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2018

I have repurchased this mascara about three or four times now. I've tried various others in between, but I keep coming back to this!

One of the mascaras I tried in-between purchases was Maybelline's Lash Sensational (and all its variants), and while that product looked good upon initial application, the curl of my lashes fell throughout the day. You won't find this …

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Finish Concealer

My HG concealer. I have been using this for years and will continue to repurchase. I use the shade NC30 which is pretty close to my natural skin colour on my dark circles and on any other more pigmented areas of my face such as around my mouth and on my forehead. Afterwards, I set my face with powder and that's my base done.

The finish is ultra natural - demi-matte, so even though …
