This review is for the colour Spice.

I bought this colour with the purpose to dupe Taupe by MAC. I like the colour of Taupe, but it's not cruelty free. After searching high and low for an alternative I came to this, and so far, I have been *really* pleased with it!

Let's start with formula. I was kind of blown away, you guys. It's surprisingly lightweight …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - Alabama

Absolutely adore this lipstick.

The colour is incredibly flattering on me. With my yellow/olive undertones, most neutral reds pull slightly pink on me (like MAC Russian Red), so despite this being a brick, warm red, it looks neutral on me. The colour is not too bright, not too dark: it's the perfect medium red for me. (Fun fact, this is a dead-on dupe for MAC Viva Glam I, but …

I LOVED the colour. It is the perfect every day neutral for me that is incredibly flattering. And yes, it is a really good dupe for Taupe by MAC! They look identical on me.

But, I gave it to my mother (who looks great it in too btw). I just did not like the formula. It was pigmented and matte, but still... slippery? Not greasy, but still slippery. Like there are silicones in there …

On paper, this is so not my thing. I don't do anything remotely to incense, it's just not something I gravitate towards and it doesn't suit me. But this!! Holy cow!! The nag champa goes really well hand in hand with the musk and isn't overpowering. The vanilla takes the front seat, too, and makes everything nice and sweet. I don't *really* get clean linen from this, but …Read more

Deodorants - Crystal - Crystal Body Deodorant Stick

Jul/21/2017

Wow. I did not actually expect this to work.

Background: Like a lot of people that read the review on this product, I was hesitant to use aluminum deodorants, so wanted to try something else. (After some research, turns out the ingredient is actually not that bad. My national cancer organization actually approves of it so a lot is just scare mongering, but I digress.) I tried a lot of …

Eye Primer - wet n wild - PhotoFocus Eyeshadow Primer

So, so, so impressed.

The only primer that did never ever fail me was the NARS Smudge-proof yada yada long name primer. Everything else I've tried always creased on me - MAC paint point, TF Shadow Insurance, and some drugstore ones (I never tried the UD PP). I was happy with Nars, though it left clear/whitish residue on me if I didn't blend it out properly and yikes, that …

Makeup Brushes - essence - Gel Eyeliner Brush

Apr/27/2016

This is my favourite eyeliner brush. It is more precise than my MAC brush that I now use for my eyebrows. It is absolutely amazing! It is quite stiff but not tóó stiff. It is incredibly precise. I prefer slanted eyeliner brushes over brushes that are small yet round (if you understand what I mean) because it is so much easier to make a winged eyeliner. The bristles don't flare out either …Read more

My review is for the Vanilla Bean scent, as it is the only one I have so far (but I'm sure more will follow!)

My HG lip balm for years has been Burt's Bees. I have used many jars of it. But I was in the market for something different. While I still love Burt's Bees, I've grown tired of it. I stumbled upon Hurraw! and I'm very glad I did.

At first, I …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

Jan/13/2016

I was surprised by how much I liked this!

Let's start off by introducing my skin. I have pretty dry cheeks and oily nose and t-zone that tend to get oily throughout the day. I picked this up, taking the 'makes your skin matte!'-claim with a grain of sailt because honestly, I was just looking for a setting spray.

Tried it out the first time with no makeup …

*Warning, lenghty review! In my love for this foundation I felt like I had to write a novel about it, I guess*

Oh. My. God!!! Where has this foundation been all my life?

I read a review about this foundation, not thinking too much of it. I've tried mineral foundations in the past but have given up on them pretty fast. They were powdery, obvious looking, dried out my …
