Liquid - Sonia Kashuk - Perfecting Luminous

1.0

Dec/21/2016

I bought this in Bisque 01, thinking it would be a good match for my pale yellow skintone. However, firstly, the colour was not a good match--it came out way too pale and absolutely did not match either the colour chart in the store or the coloured bottle it comes in.
Secondly, it just would not blend in. With the consistency it is, it ended up just kind of sliding around on my skin, even …

Crème - NIVEA - Q10 Plus CC Cream Spf 15

Dec/21/2016

I bought this CC Cream rather than a BB cream, as I'd heard CCs were better for coverage than BBs. It's quite unfortunate as I've come across several blogs praising this for being quite a good product in its price range. I don't know if I bought a dud or not, but upon applying this product it ended up getting pilly, as in it ended up leaving little blobs of not just the …Read more

Blush - Boots - No 7 Powder Blusher Peony Mist

Dec/21/2016

I bought this whilst in a hurry, and so thought it would be beneficial just to ask a Boots cosmetics specialist (at a rather large Boots, too) what colour she recommended rather than trawl the case myself. Without really looking at my face, she suggested this one, which was a big mistake. I was in need of a new blush for not just my own makeup collection but to use in an amped-up way for on …Read more

Pressed Powders - Soap & Glory - Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder

Dec/21/2016

I bought this as a cheaper alternative to Benefit's Hello Flawless, though I will be going back to using that one, even if it is more expensive.

Firstly, while it says it camouflages, it did nothing to hide any actual flaws that my foundation hadn't managed to fully cover. And whereas I like a powder (again, like the Benefit one) to set my makeup, this powder as a final step …

Fragrances - TokyoMilk - La Vie la Mort #90

I so, so wanted to like this perfume. The name, the design, the ingredients just call out, but sadly I was rather disappointed with it. While it smells great in the bottle, it had no staying power, at least for me. Some people told me they could smell it on me, but even after spraying it, when I would try to smell it on my wrist there was just nothing. Maybe it's just me?
The bottle …

Fragrances - LUSH - Karma

This perfume is one I would definitely buy again. The scent is warm but not heavy, and is suitable for year-round wear. And another plus: it actually lasts on your skin for hours afterward rather than just disappearing like so many other fragrances are prone to do.

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Aquafina Flavor Splash Lip Balm

I really liked Aquafina's Lip Oil, so when I saw this I was immediately attracted it. I wasn't disappointed--it stays at a good level of "oily" so your lips don't feel sopping wet but they don't dry out quickly either. If you have to live with cold, dry weather, then this is a good buy.
