Moisturizers - TATCHA - The Water Cream

I got a deluxe point sample of this. I have oily asian skin and this DOES help with oiliness but...uh, it's filled with silicones... I tried it at night at first (it's luxury skincare that i typically associate with ingredients that are highly effective in long term, not just the immediate), and immediately while it was nice and smooth...it was way *too* smooth. It felt like it had …Read more

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Pure Pops Single Eyeshadow - Strada

This thing is so bizarre. In the pan it looks like a medium lavendar/purple with a ton of gold shimmer and looks gorgeous. Swatched, looks amazing too. On the eyes, it looks like a darker muddy greyple. looks absolutely awful. for some reason the gold shimmer does not translate AT ALL on the eyelid. i tried it wet and it still did not translate - only deepended it to a darker …Read more

Years and years and years (we're talking probably around 5 years or even older), apparently i got one of these from a gift with purchase in Intense Ivy shade. I put it in a drawer somewhere and promptly forgot about it.

Queue 2019, i've stopped buying more stuff when i know i have so much in my drawers, so as part of that process of downsizing and figuring out what i can …

Mascara - IT Cosmetics - Superhero Mascara

I bought this during the holiday Ulta sale, and i'm pretty glad I got it for cheap.

Brand new, it's so wet it gets absolutely everywhere. i kept getting it on my eyelid, and it was just...bleh. i really didn't like it.

after a while it dried out a bit and was much better, was making my lashes really full/volumized, slightly longer, and holds a curl. But …

Lipstick - TOM FORD - Lip Color - Indian Rose

I got this in a mini from Sephora's 100pt perk, and it is absolutely lovely. I finished it today, and while I'm sad to see it go and it really is a great formula, it's not THAT great to be worth the pricetag.

but for people who can afford it, this lipstick will not disappoint you. It's a lovely rose with both warm and cool tones - on my lips it reads more warm …

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

1.0

This stuff singlehandedly made me dislike all dry shampoos - and it took a long time of finally giving other brands a try that i realized not all dry shampoos are this bad.

Batiste is definitely very affordable, but the problem is that it's literally a white powder that covers your scalp. I do have black hair, but even that aside, when you spray it in and then try to rub your …

Dry Shampoo - Dove - Refresh + Care Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo

8 months ago

I got a half size sample of this from a target sample box, i think, but I left it alone for several years. I am a daily hair washer, and I have personal reason for that, and so i never had any reason to use dry shampoo. Plus, the one dry shampoo i bought due to massive online raves (the Psst), I find it really gunky, made my hair almost sticky, and just overall made my hair feel grosser instead …Read more

I bought this in Dulce du Leche, i'm NC20ish Asian (neutral warm undertone), and the contour shade is absolutely awesome. I like this more than the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer.

The powder on both sides are extremely fine and smooth, it does kick up a bit of powder but it depends on what kind of brush/application you're using. I use a slanted brush so I just …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Oct/13/2017

So...this mascara is being raved by every youtuber including the youtubers I really trust, but this mascara is actually kinda disappointing?

Or rather, perhaps it's a case of me not wanting the same thing as everyone else?

I bought this mascara based on all the hype, I got it in the Blackest Black non wp formula, and I find it way too clumpy. It does provide a lot of …

Eye Primer - MILANI - Eyeshadow Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2017

Edit: I'm about 1/3rd of the way through my tube now and it's starting to become dryer compared to before. The good news is that it's not separating - so note that it does start to dry out and may become harder to blend out later.

I have used a variety of eye primers in the past 8 years or so, and I have to say, I think the Milani eye primer is very likely to be my …
