Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

5.0

Mary Lou was the first higher end highlighter I ever used. I was skeptical about it at first but after a few uses, I was sold. It’s a light gold that can really beam if packed on or with less, can make you look heathily shiny. In my experience, it has to be packed up to the intensity I love. I typically love a blinding highlight. If I don’t know what to use, I tend to reach for this one. The …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

After hearing Maybelline mascaras get raved about, I decided to try this one. I think the nude packaging is super pretty and it doesn’t feel too cheap. The way it makes my lashes look is nice, especially on the top lashes, but it does work on the bottom ones too, you’ve just got to be careful not to overdo it. It gives them length and makes me look like they’re naturally long (and mine aren’t) …Read more

Highlighters - Maybelline New York - Face Studio Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter - Light Iridescent

I don’t feel like this product does much for me. I’m on the fair side and I majorly regret buying this. It looks like a pink streak and exaggerates texture though that is a given with a lot of different highlighters, not just cream or this one. I’m more of a powder highlight addict and prefer a highlight with an intense shine/sparkle or sometimes a softer glow. This product just wasn’t it for me …Read more

I think the bottle of this perfume is cute and if you smell it from the bottle it doesn’t smell half bad but the actual scent on me is so musky and too strong and this was gifted but unfortunately, I don’t like it and now I’m trying to use it up.

I’ve only used this pencil twice but I already like it! Especially if you’ve got naturally broad eyebrows that need filling in of sparse areas, you’ll love this pencil. That being said, if your eyebrows are smaller and finer, you may also like this. I myself have thinner eyebrows (they really are tiny) and I still find it easy to work with, though I’m careful not to go too far outside of my brow …Read more

Lip Gloss - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - Fenty Glow

A dark peachy lip gloss with tiny shimmers within it, in the sun, the shimmers look almost gold. It makes the lips look juicy, wet and plump. This product is probably the best gloss I’ve tried so far. It pairs well with other lip products on top, gives them a complimentary sheen and feels comfy layered. On its own, it has a nice slip to it and makes you look ethereal and healthy. The huge doe …Read more

Aug/04/2018

Feels like I’ve had this forever. I think I absentmindedly picked this up when I needed a mosituriser after my Nivea mosituriser got old. It’s too greasy for my naturally oily skin (even though I have used it on my face before makeup to use it up in small amounts) and it was okay, prepped it and did the job. So I tried it on my elbows, where it’s more dry. It does bring relief from dryness as …Read more

Mine is in 02, a red shade for reference.

This product was given to me as a birthday gift. Instantly, I thought the heart shaped cap was cute (I may have the old packaging!) I liked the smell of artificial cherries that now isn’t as strong as it’s on the older side. However, the smell is still there, less prevalent. I’ve used this more than I thought I would and it’s worth mentioning …

Scrubs - LUSH - Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

Jul/25/2018

Good scrub that I use sparingly as I don’t want to overdo it. Quite gritty and rough feeling, helps refresh my skin and keep it feeling clean and exflotiated after every use. It also does tone down my redness a bit so that’s a plus. I usually use it on my face. The only con is that I can usually end up tasting this product so in that sense, you’ve got to be careful when rinsing it off. Will …Read more

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

Jul/21/2018

Such an incredible eyeshadow primer, the first I’ve tried and it’s already a favourite and possibly HG. In my experience, does a lot more than when I’ve tried to use concealer as a base. Helps to make shadows more vibrant and pop, last longer and apply better/smoother. I intend on either repurchasing this or trying the Anti-Ageing Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay or testing Too Faced’s …Read more
