Mascara - NARS Cosmetics - Audacious Mascara

Mar/17/2016

I find that this mascara is pretty average. I didn't actually purchase it, but got it in a gift with purchase around the holiday time from sephora--along with other deluxe sized samples. I've used it for the past 1-2 months and its pretty meh. I normally use all my mascaras over a mascara primer (either dior maximizer or lancome cilz booster) so basically any mascara looks good over …Read more

i have really straight short asian lashes so mascara primer is a must for me. i really liked how this primer really held my curl well. i've used dior, urban decay and lancome lash primers and this shiseido one beats the others in terms of holding a curl. it also does a good job of lengthening, however its not as volumizing as some of the other primers. this is still however one of my top …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Cils Booster XL

Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2015

i have very straight asian lashes that are pretty much non-existant. so i've tried many of the top mascara primers out there (shiseido, dior and urban decay). and this is among my top favorites. pros: amazing volume, helps my mascara last longer on my lashes (vs my lower eyelids). cons: doesn't hold curl well, slightly lacking in the lengthening. and yes this is a pricey primer, but my …Read more

i bought this during the sephora vib sale and so far i really like it. i've tried it mixed in with my moisturizer and foundation. and both worked really well. its nice to have this product to make things into a tinted moisturizer or to make a foundation a better match for my skintone. its a pro that you can customize your coverage level.

i have the color g30 and its a pretty …

this is a great brush for contouring. the shape of the brush is really conducive to contouring. and like all real technique brushes its a great quality brush for the price. i currently have one of these brushes and i'd def would buy more in the future. however its such a dense brush that its very easy to be heavy handed.

BB Cream - FLOWER Beauty - BB Cream

Apr/22/2015

I think this a great product (tbh i don't consider this to be a bb cream due to the awesome full coverage). plus it lacks any spf and it provides a matte finish (these are not cons however in my book). sometimes when i want a lighter coverage i mix it in with a little moisturizer and it still provides good coverage. i love the full coverage, the staying power is pretty decent in comparison …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

Dec/06/2014

let me start this by saying i own a beauty blender--which i love but don't enjoy the price. this sponge is comparable in terms of the finish and application. however i don't consider it a complete dupe for a beauty blender. i feel like the beauty blender is denser and a higher quality product. the real techniques sponge will last maybe about a month of use (with me using it 4x/wk) and …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

Created with Sketch.

Jun/10/2014

i LOVE this product. i've only used it with my real techniques expert face brush. and it works really great. the coverage is a little less than the liquid version of the revlon colorstay, but can still be built to a medium or full coverage.imo this lasts longer and the finish is more natural, a kind of "my skin but better". the original colorstay foundation is fabulous too however …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - Nourishing Cleansing Oil

Jun/10/2014

the good: it removes all of my face makeup (and eye makeup, with more effort), price is very reasonable and being a drugstore item is really accessible.

the bad: the packaging is terrible. for whatever reason the pump dispenser leaks so that when i try to use the product from the dispenser oil leaks out from the top. however, i've gotten around it by pouring out the product into a …

Jun/07/2014

i absolutely love this product. i've tried using it as highlight powder, but for me personally its too subtle. i like to use it as an all over finishing powder on top of my more usually more matte foundations. it adds a little more "life" into my foundations. and i don't really notice a huge issue with oil when i use this powder as an all over powder (but i don't have …Read more
