Liquid - Dior - DIORSKIN STAR

This is a really beautiful foundation. Firstly, the packaging is classic Dior, and it looks lovely. The pump it comes with is a really good one and provides solid control so you can get just the right amount. However, after the outward appearance of this foundation, I have a few issues.

While the formula and finish of this foundation are really nice, it's not really for all skin …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2015

For a drugstore foundation, the Fit Me Matte is pretty good. The price especially is really great, ranging around $6-8 USD. The application is really smooth and almost feels like a soft powder finish without being drying, so I feel like those with drier skin types would be comfortable wearing this. However, the finish isn't truly matte--it definitely leans more semi-matte, although I …Read more

Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyeshadow Base in White

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2015

This is a good eyeshadow base, but it's nothing too exceptional. I purchased it hoping it would also serve as a primer, but it definitely doesn't--if anything, it makes shadows crease faster. However, I do still appreciate it, as I have rather veiny eyelids, and this does a good job of covering and brightening at the same time. I have very pale skin, so I like that this highlights my …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Mascara - Carbon Black

5.0

May/23/2015

This is one of the best mascaras I've ever used. First off, I've used a lot of mascaras with too dry of formulas, or with unnecessarily large brushes, or that flake all over my face, but this mascara doesn't have any of these problems: the formula is neither too dry nor too wet; the brush is thin with smartly placed bristles that achieve a nice separated look while building length; …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Natural Matte Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2015

This palette is gorgeous! I'm big on matte shadows and huge on neutrals, and this palette is a dream come true. Each shadow is buttery-soft and perfectly pigmented, and unlike other palettes, I know I'll use every single one. I love how the three lightest shades are larger, as they'll definitely be used the most. I just can't gush enough about this palette, and I can't …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Palette - Petal Pusher 736

4.0

Mar/18/2015

This is a good eyeshadow palette, especially for the price. The colors all compliment each other nicely, and the payoff is surprisingly good for each shade (but some more so than others). The little dual brush it comes with is just awful, though, and I threw it away as soon as I opened the palette. Basically, the payoff is decent, lasting power is good with primer, the packaging is a little iffy …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - Colorstay 24hrs Makeup SPF 15 - Combination/Oily Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2015

I love this foundation. It has decent oil control, which is pretty important to me, as, after mid-day, my skin always starts to get a bit shiny from oil production, and Colorstay keeps it from getting obnoxious for a good 8 hours. Its full staying power goes to 12 or so before it begins dissipating. I also love the color selection--I'm incredibly pale, particularly around my neck and chest …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Mega Shine - Beige

Mar/18/2015

Just for the record, I did not personally purchase this, but rather my friend gave it to me.

This is a nice, simple gloss. The scent is pleasant (it reminds me of some kind of candy I can't quite put my finger on), the packaging is sturdy, and the color is a beautiful, sheer pink that I think would suit most skin tones. Without anything beneath it, it's just a nice wash of …

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm-Laguna Blush-Bronzer Duo

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/14/2015

Just for the record, I didn't purchase this, but a friend gave it to me.
I like both Orgasm and Laguna, the colors are beautiful and the shimmer isn't too obnoxious in either. However, I'm not sure if mine is defective or if this is just how it's supposed to be, but both powders are extremely sheer and difficult to pick up; so difficult, in fact, that I can't even …

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche in Saucy Mauve

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/31/2015

Lately I've really been craving some good nude lipsticks, and when I happened upon Saucy Mauve at the store, I fell in love, but I was also wary that it might clash with my cool skintone; but I really didn't have anything to worry about, it looks fantastic on and really finds a nice medium between YLBB and a deeper nude in my NC15 skin. The color payoff is wonderful, the packaging is …Read more
