Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Laguna

The packaging of this bronzer is super sleek and I love the colour of this bronzer BUT IT ALWAYS IRRITATES MY SKIN. I have no idea why. It always breaks me out and gives me pimples on my cheeks every time I use it. It's gotten to the point where I just gave it away to a friend because it's really pretty but it just doesn't work for me.

Eye Shadow - Morphe - Kathleenlights Palette

I love Kathleenlights and I trust her opinion but these were a little iffy for me. I never really end up reaching for this. There's a few really nice shades in these but the only shade that really stands out to me is those two green shades on the bottom left corner. There's only a handful of transition shades but all the colours were nice and blended out find. The shimmers are literally …Read more

THIS IS SO GOOD. I suck at eyeshadow and these make my life so much easier. There's a good amount of matte shades and theres 2 shimmer shades that are really nice for the inner corner or just on the lid. Realgar is a really special shade in my opinion too because I don't think I've ever seen that type of orangey tan type of colour. You can really make so many looks out of this and …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

The tin on these are crazy cute and the eyeshadows smell amazing. Not going to lie, I really only bought these for the packaging. The shadows on the other hand, are meh in my opinion. The only transition colours I see are like Peaches N Cream and the two darker tannish brown colours. A lot of these shades aren't fully matte and I don't really get inspiration from any of these shades …Read more

Eye Shadow - ColourPop - Pressed Eyeshadows

I can definitely see how these eyeshadows can get a bad review but I personally really like them. I prefer then over the Too Faced eyeshadows and these shadows are really easy to work with. Too Faced shadows are kind of hit or miss for me... I have the Sweet Peach Palette and I felt sort of underwhelmed by the colour selection and the formula of some of them. I don't find the CP shadows to …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

Mar/15/2017

This mascara was okay. I can probably find better ones to be honest. I only use it because I got a travel sized mascara and I'm not too fussy on how my lashes look. For the price though, I'd say that I'm annoyed by the fact that it kind of melts on my lower lash line... and I don't even put mascara on my lower lashes. Like come on: I can probably buy another mascara for a …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Mar/15/2017

Hated this. First time I bought it, the bristles on the wand were literally CRUSHED. Couldn't even use it. It was clumpy and I had to exchange it for a new one. The new one had a much better wand but the formula dried down really slow. It'd smudge on my eyes and this wasn't even completely waterproof. Did I mention it was SUPER clumpy? I will say however, that this mascara made my …Read more

I LOVE THIS. On those weeks where i've had my brows done, this is the only product I put on my brows. It makes my eyebrows just slightly darker and it doesn't chip off ugly on my eyebrows. I like using the black version the most because I'm asian with dark hair but I've also used the brown ver and it looks pretty much the same. I will say that it runs out pretty easily and …Read more

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2017

I actually really like this pencil. It lasts a really long time for me, both on my eyebrows and just in the packaging in general. My brow wiz runs out really fast and this one doesn't for me. I also really like the colour and the packaging is sturdy on mine. I've dropped the pencil so many times and it hasn't broke on me yet. It's a little expensive but one pencil can last me …Read more

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Mar/15/2017

I've repurchased this countless of times but I gotta say, it's pretty expensive. The full sized is borderline 50$CAD and I can't believe I justify repurchasing so often. I can say, however, this is my favourite powder just because it never makes me look TOO powdery. Then again, I have acne-prone combo skin and sometimes when my skin is flaky in some areas this can emphasize all …Read more
