Bought “Out Loud” as a longer wearing dupe of one of my favourite creme lipsticks, Iman “Paprika”. Was AMAZING when I first bought it, wore beautifully, removed easily with oil, convenient applicator. I tested every comparable liquid lipstick at Sephora, and this one had the best texture and perfect shade! Every time I wore it I felt like a million bucks.

I wish I could give this shade …

Love this palette!

As a neutral-warm toned person with grey eyes who loooooves orange, there are a lot of great shades for me. I can do daytime, evening, and party looks with this. The only shades I don’t touch often are “Vermeer” and “Buon Fresco”, they make me look a bit dead. I kind of wish that “Love Letter” and “Venetian Red” were one shade, because they look almost identical on …

Cleansers - Avene - Mattifying Foam Cleanser

I have combination sensitive skin with rosacea. My skin felt dry and tight and I broke out immediately after switching to this cleanser in my regular routine.

This cleanser was too drying for me, especially as it’s winter right now. I think it’s targeted more at oily skin. I find the fragrance strong and unpleasant. Too bad, the packaging was nice! And the texture of the foam was …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

I have combo skin. I patch tested this product on my arm and was not allergic to it. Within two weeks of using it as an addition to my regular evening skincare routine I broke out in whiteheads and deep painful zits on and around my nose. This was very unusual for me, as my typical breakouts are on my forehead and chin.

If you want to try it, proceed with caution. At the very least …

Cleansers - COSRX - Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Feb/24/2018

There were so many good reviews that I bought two of these! Unfortunately it dried out my combo skin, didn’t even get through the first bottle. My skin felt tight and my flaky areas were visibly worse. The tea tree oil smell was much stronger than I expected, but I got used to it, and even started to like it.

Update: I eventually used this as body wash, which was fine. Going to sell …

I bought this after using Banila Clean It Zero Purity cleansing balm, which I loooove but is expensive.

I hate the smell of this product, it reminds me of cough syrup. I also find that my skin feels tight after I use it. It could also be cheaper, considering that it’s mostly mineral oil. Overall, don’t like the smell, don’t like the feel, don’t like the way my skin feels afterwards …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy

This lip balm does not seem worth the price. I did not notice it performing any better overnight than Vaseline. It comes in jar packaging, so you have to keep dipping your finger in it. The mint made my lips burn. The texture is sticky and waxy. There are many other options for less money.

Tried the shade Honey Sheen, which came in a bundle of toiletries I bought.

Smells like toothpaste.
Burns my lips.
“Honey” is apparently cool/white/silver toned...

Fail.

EDIT:
Ok, so I must humbly take back my original one star review. I have grown to like this lipgloss, and it may have ushered me back into wearing lip gloss on the reg.

Lipstick - Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II

5.0

Oct/01/2017

I bought this on a quest to dupe one of my favourite Revlon lipsticks, "blushing nude", in a more longwearing formula.

What I've found is that this formula doesn't necessarily wear longer than a bullet BUT it does not fade and barely transfers. So if I drink water my cup might get a teensy flake of colour, but that's it. If I touch my lips or give someone a …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - The Buffs Collection - Truffle Tease (930)

I found this lipstick moisturizing and comforting. It transfers and rubs off very easily and is somewhat sheer. The smell is alright. I love the packaging design.

I would not rebuy because I prefer more pigmented and long-wearing lipsticks. I find that Revlon and Rimmel do a better job at the same price point.


I don't factor color into my rating, but I will note …
