Brows - RIMMEL - Brow This Way - Brow Styling Gel

I have long brows with thick Asian hair, and occasional Asian sparse spots. While this gel doesnt hold my hairs in place, it is adequate for the mid-brow combovers, thickening the finest above-brow hairs, and, best of all, it doesnt apply red and it doesnt turn gray over the course of the day.* I wear Dark Brown in the morning, and when I Facetime my aunt in the evening, she calls me “Brooke …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Powder Brush

5.0

This is the brush I have used for its price, and it is underpriced for its quality.

The softest synthetic powder brush I have ever used is by La Mer; the Sephora Pro #91 followed by the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe and Too Faced are nice, but for the price and marketing, are nowhere close to the La Mer. Ecotools is just scratchy, and the Sonia Kashuk was more firm and dense than I was …

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

4.0

If you are Kett o5, Tan will be straight orange on you. Tan works well for NC42-44, not so much for MAC C40/Fenty 290.

This is nicely glowy for dry skin, and mutes the appearance of hyperpigmented acne scars. If you use mixers, you will be mixing Temptu S/B for a long time! I do not get flashback in pictures, which lends me to question the SPF50 accuracy. When used as a medium-coverage …

Eyeliner - Isehan - KissMe heroine make smooth liquid eyeliner BK 01

This is my HG eyeliner!! This works great for my oily, astigmatized eyes, sensitive, olive skin, and wobbly fingers.

I require quick-dry, waterproof, transfer-proof products. My eyelids are oily and my eyes have an astigmatism, so waxy products are an absolute no-go, as waxy products smudge onto my contact lens; taking the time to re-wash my contact lenses is inconvenient. If I wear …

Bronzers - theBalm Cosmetics - Bahama Mama Bronzer, Shadow & Contour Powder

5.0

May/15/2018

HG bronzer and contour! I can't believe it's taken me THIS LONG to finally get to it! It's more fitting for my C40/C6 (I mix them together via Fix+) skin than Laguna or Casino. This costs more than I usually pay for a contour powder, but it's worth it! It's the few shades that actually look normal on my skin and not straight-up gray. Please don't ever stop making …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Total Control Drop Foundation

4.0

May/04/2018

This foundation is expensive for the drugstore!

I do, however, love how light this foundation feels and is easily buildable. Natural Beige hits my undertones well, and Beige is a tad light for my Fenty 290, Maybelline MP Fit Me 228, MAC C40 skin, and it reverse oxidizes on me! YES IT TURNS LIGHTER. It's so weird. I usually get oxidation with foundation but this gets lighter on …

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

May/04/2018

This foundation is my ID/passport photo foundation, as it is cheap and 228 Soft Tan matches my undertones. It is a bit *light*, but still tolerable with some "warmth" added on top.

This foundation is not too thick, not thin, and imparts a build-able, medium coverage. I find that I don't need to set this foundation, but it doesn't get too powdery on my dehydrated …

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Glow 24HR Foundation

May/04/2018

I wanted to like this product! The medium-full coverage finish is beautifully dewy for my dehydrated skin, but it simply does *not* wear well on my skin type and color.

I am a Fenty 290, MAC C40 (NC42 in intensity) or Maybelline Fit Me M&P 228 Soft Tan, with olive undertones so strong that pinks look gray on me (does that make me teal?). When this foundation first came out, I …

I first bought this 5 years ago, and did not like it back then. I could not figure out why, and, after trying it again, I still can not figure out why this shade can not work for me. When I wore NC42, this shade would barely show up, but its glitters had me looking like a disco ball. Now that I discovered that I am a C6, it still does not show up on me. I tried this shade again when I experienced …Read more

Concealers - L.A. Girl - PRO Conceal HD Concealer

5.0

Oct/25/2017

LA girl PRO HD concealer, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

1. Buildable medium coverage
2. Barely detectable
3. I don't set with powder, I just pat my finely-lined undereyes over the course of the day
4. Creamy, moisturizing/non-drying
5. Creamy Beige works well with my NC40 skin
6. DAT PRICE DOE! Too good to be true, but, if it, too, works for …
