Eyeliner - Kiko Cosmetics - Super Colour Eyeliner

5.0

24 days ago

I got this in 103 (brown) since I wanted a more muted eyeliner that would not look like I’m wearing eyeliner but elongate my eyes. Pencils all disappear on my oily eyelids so they were out of question.
This is very convenient to apply due to the very thin tip of the applicator. You can draw sharp lines with not much effort. The consistency is very watery and this is the only little cons for …

Pressed Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Finishing Powder Translucent

5.0

I'm on my third compact of this and so far have not found a powder that would work better for my oily/combo skin.
It is finely milled and translucent, though it does brighten the skin very slightly. It works for drier areas and you would get away with applying a bit too much. I do not have any flaky areas thanks to AHA so can't speak on this issue.
It is not going to eliminate …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Stone

3.0

If you apply this on dry lips, it becomes a crumbly mess instantly, right after application. I absolutely love the color and it looks stunning on me, but none of my other MAC matte lipsticks behave this way.
The only way to use this lipstick is to apply it over a generous layer of lip balm, but then it loses a bit of its matte. Wish I could just slap it on like Ruby Woo or Velvet …

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

I was expecting to totally hate this. The only reason I bought this for my combo/oily skin with large pores is that I hate layering sunblock under foundation, it becomes a greasy mess after 2-3 hours of wear. Got this in the darkest shade 31 to match my spray tan.
Well, this applies like a silicony moisturizer, I spread it with fingers since it feels like a brush or a sponge would thin out …

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Skin Butter

5.0

2 months ago

This is my all time favorite body product and the one I am actually not too lazy to apply daily since it’s enjoyable to use. Love the cocoa scent and yes it lingers for quite a while after application but I happen to like this too.
The consistency is silky and smooth. It absorbs quickly, does not leave a film and the skin is super soft and supple afterwards. It’s not oily at all like a lot …

Lip Liners - Catrice - Lip Foundation Pencil

5.0

3 months ago

It's actually true to its name - kind of a lip foundation.
If you get this in a right shade (a tad darker than your natural lip color, for me it is shade 040 I take you to the chocolate shop) and fill the contour + blend down a bit, it hides all of the lip imperfections, looks glam and it stays there, this stuff is more long-wearing than your regular lip liner, it's very similar to …

Lip Liners - Kiko Cosmetics - Smart Lip Pencil

This is a good lip liner for the price. It is not very long-wearing, but it's cheap and the shade selection is great. Own this in 533 and 534. 533 is similar to MAC Whirl but warmer, 534 is a tad darker and redder.
It sharpens well with a regular sharpener, no special device required. The packaging is nice and sleek.

UPDATE: No this doesn't sharpen well. It sharpens …

Concealers - Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I really like this stuff. I use it to highlight under my eyes (very dark circles + uneven skin tone) and a few other areas of the face and not to conceal pimples/spots, but guess this would work as well.
This is full coverage and a little really goes a long way. I just put two dots on each side with the big doe-foot applicator this concealer has (really like it): one right under my dark …

Foundations - BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 - Hour Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The foundation is really full coverage, but my problem with it is that it doesn't spread very well, it's almost like brushing clay on your skin. With fingers, it's a bit easier than with a brush, but I don't like the mess. Got this in a shade Olive which is a nice match for tanned neutral-y undertoned skin and also in a shade Buttercup to use as a highlighting concealer. …Read more

Foundations - Huda Beauty - Faux Filter Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

First of all, I found it hard to find my match. I am something like NC42 but on a neutral side and with Faux Filter the majority of my shades are G for golden. I purchased this in Brown Sugar 410G which was a tad too dark and orangey, then I bought Dulce de Leche 350G (they did not carry the shade in between) and it was too light. There are no neutral-y shades around those colors which I find …Read more
