Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection - 3 Piece Brush Set includes:103 ANGLED POWDER,200 OVAL SHADOW,300 TAPERED BLUSH

I LOVE these brushes. Usually I use a multitude of brushes (including the RT Sam's picks, the NARS Ita, and some Sigma brushes) and I don't think I've ever used such good brushes.

103 is the PERFECT powder brush for me. It's amazing for …

Lipstick - Kylie Cosmetics - Matte LipKit

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2016

I was lucky not to jump the gun and and get one of the $100 kits off ebay. WAIT UNTIL THEY BECOME IN STOCK! I got mine in Dolce K.

I love the packaging.

A downside? Mine was a bit emptier than I expected. Not quite "OMG my King Kylie is half empty" that I've seen on YouTube, but empty enough for me to notice.

It's a nice colour and I feel it …

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Meet Matt(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2016

Let me start off by saying I LOVE The Balm and their packaging! It's so creative.

The packaging, although paperish, seems pretty heavy-duty. I would feel comfortable with putting this palette in my handbag. The magnet is sturdy and the mirror is nice and big.

You get plenty of product for the price. 25.5g in the palette, which means 2.83g per pan. Of course since …

Lips - Lime Crime - Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick

Jul/01/2016

I hate admitting that I LOVE Lime Crime's Velvetine lipsticks. They're the only Lime Crime products I'll buy, and I still won't buy them from the Lime Crime website (I buy mine from Dolls Kill because I actually trust that boutique). I bought mine in Salem. It smells like cake frosting, and that earns it bonus points.

The packaging is beautiful. The only downside is …

Palettes - W7 - In the nude

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/30/2016

I'd like to preface this by saying that I also have the Naked 3, which this is an obvious dupe of, both in packaging and in color. I WILL be comparing this to the Naked 3 throughout the review, but I bought both with my own money.

The packaging will stand up to a fair bit of wear and tear. Unfortunately the lid came off mine the first day I had it, but was easily reattached and …

Fragrances - Coty - Midnight Heat EDP by Beyonce

Jun/30/2016

Pleasantly found this at my local PriceLine Pharmacy for $15. I needed some perfume and figured it's cheap, and I love Beyonce's scents, so I bought it.

I'm no scent-master, so this review would be better for an average person as opposed to somebody who can smell the slightest hint of fig from a mile away.

It definitely smells like a fall/winter or even …

Loose Powders - Maybelline New York - Shine Free Oil-Control Loose Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2016

I was originally going to pick up a different powder, but when I saw that this was 40% off (only $10 at the reduced price) I had to try it. I've never used a loose powder before, so I'm glad that this one ended up being decent.

I picked up the powder in Light 01, which is still a bit too orange and dark for my skin unless I just very lightly dust it on, but dusting it on …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss - 103

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/05/2016

First thing first, it did NOT match the colour on the package. But that ended up being a rather pleasant surprise.

This, for me, was almost a candified version of my natural lip colour, a very subtle hint. It's quite matte, almost a velvet finish.

This product for me was about $15. Definitely worth it, but a bit pricey for a drugstore lipstick. Seems to be a lot more …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/26/2016

The lightest shade any store had (even online) was horribly orange on me, but I wanted to take this to the test.

The actual bottle has no pump. Big thumbs down because of that, as I feel like I'm letting product oxidise in the bottle whenever I open it.

It showed my creases pretty obviously, was really shiny (even with any matte powders I tried, even when using the …

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/26/2016

I bought this on sale a while ago for around $7-$9 Australian. Little to no smell, the powder didn't come off too thick or thin, and it was truly matte. Unfortunately, the packaging isn't sturdy. Dropped this on my vanity (a fall of about one foot) and the lid cracked, and the powder was no longer "pressed". The lid still works, it just comes off very easily.

My …
