Liquid - Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/22/2018

How do I love thee, let me count the ways:
- The best thing I find about Luminous Silk is the silky (duh), slippery texture that glides over the skin effortlessly. I have to blend most other foundations very carefully over small areas of my face to avoid cakey spots. With this one, I got completely lazy - I can slap a pump's worth into the middle of my face, slather it around, and it …

Fragrances - Nina Ricci - L'Air du Temps

2.0

Where did the scent go?!
I am something of a lazy classic perfume lover: I'm far from a connoisseur who seeks out vintage bottles, and I'm more than happy to use modern reformulations. They may have lost their former glory (I don't even want to find out and be disappointed), but the style, whether it's a "pure perfume" aldehyde or a bold oriental floral …

Concealers - Yves Saint Laurent - Anti-Cernes Multi Action Concealer #1

5.0

Dec/14/2017

If you love this concealer as much as I do, be warned - this is being discontinued!
All the stores near me have already run out of my shade, and I was told by a lady at a YSL counter that it's being phased out after they released the new "All Hours" concealer. Here's a eulogy for my dark circles' best friend and the holy grail concealer of several …

Blush - Burberry - Lip & Cheek Bloom

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2017

I had this in "Hydrangea", a bright cool pink.
The texture of this is unique and interesting enough - like a whipped mousse, somewhat spingy/spongy and very silky, silicony and a bit powdery to the touch. Unfortunately, when it comes to the performance, the only good thing I found about this formula is that it has a natural semi-matte finish on the face (kind of like …

Bronzers - Giorgio Armani - Sun Fabric Bronzer - 100

5.0

Dec/08/2017

At least out of what I've tried so far, this is the perfect bronzer for those who struggle to pull off any bronzer!
I'd describe the colour as a true brown/beige that doesn't pull orange, gold (like so many bronzers meant for lighter skin) or pink. It's very neutral - definitely not the warmest, but also not the coolest on the market. For me, this is as cool as a bronzer …

Blush - Burberry - Light Glow (blush) in n. 2 (Cameo)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2017

Out of the three Burberry blushes I have (Cameo, Earthy and Blossom), this is my personal favourite, and the only one I might repurchase:

I find that all Light Glow blushes have very...interesting colours with complex undertones, and they seem to change on the face or in different lighting more than other blushes I've tried. "Cameo" is not at all the plain old subtle …

Highlighters - LUSH - Feeling Younger Skin Tint

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2017

This was my first and only makeup buy from Lush. I don't see Lush as much of a makeup brand, and my expectations weren't terribly high (sorry, Lush!), but, even though I won't repurchase this highlighter for the reason below, I was pleasantly surprised by it:
The highlighter is one of the most beautiful I've seen, with a holographic-like shine that changes from rosy to …

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2017

This is a review for the powder version:
I was hoping that the colour "pearl" would give me a neutral, natural sheen without adding a yellowish tone which other Becca highlighters have. Unfortunately, the problem I find with the powder version is that it's just too pigmented! - instead of a sheen which completely blends into the skin and appears and disappears when I move my …
