Mascara - Urban Decay - Perversion Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

I’ve repurchased this a few times because it’s just a good go-to mascara. The results aren’t dramatic, life changing epic lashes, but it is a mascara that’s fuss-free, reliable, and looks good.

If you’re looking for heavy dramatic lashes, this is not the mascara for you. I personally opt for length and definition over volume, so I like mascaras that look natural, and this fits all my …

Mascara - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

15 days ago

This has to be the worst mascara I have ever tried. I normally opt for length and definition over clumpy volume, so I actually prefer it when mascaras look natural instead of heavy and dramatic. But what this mascara does can’t even be defined as natural looking, it’s more like non-existent.

I have to do AT LEAST 3-4 coats (with adequate drying time in between) in order to get any …

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Gradient Glow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

It’s been a slow journey to loving this Becca highlighter, but I’m finally in love! I was used to more subtle cream and liquid highlighters, so for a while, this highlighter felt clumsy and garish in comparison. However, this is now one of my favourite highlighters to reach for because it’s so easy to use and so incredibly versatile. You can apply with an incredibly light hand for subtlety or …Read more

Sunscreen - Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth and Poreless Matte Sunscreen SPF 40

3.0

First off, this sunscreen achieves its matte texture through the use of silicones. I myself have no problems with silicone in my products, but I know some people avoid it, and that it's not compatible with certain skin types. Also, alcohol doesn't seem to be in this product, which is an even bigger bonus!

The silicone in this creates a very primer-like texture, and it's …

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - EFFACLAR Duo

HG product for me. I’ve been using this for my acne and as a day moisturizer since about 2014.

For me, it’s the perfect combination of just enough hydration for my oily skin without feeling heavy or clogging the skin, as well as absolutely fantastic for my form of acne. I have adult acne thats mostly mild but appears all over my face, all the time. I get the occasional cystic acne, but …

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Shape Tape Contour Concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I was looking for a concealer that could be used for under eye and blemishes, and decided to try this since it’s been so raves about. Sad to say, I’m completely disappointed.

I couldn’t get this to blend right, it looked patchy and clung to areas of skin, emphasised my pores, looked especially horrible around my nose, so I kept trying it out with different primers, foundations and …

Highlighters - LUSH - Feeling Younger Skin Tint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This product looks like a scary white colour in the jar and that initially put me off because I have quite a tanned and warm skin tone. I swatched it and was so shocked at how lovely it was! It blends out quite sheer so no scary whiteness, and it has a really nice iridescent gold shimmer running through it that is very wearable.

As nice as the colour of this highlighter is, it …

Eyeliner - Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner - Spice

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have repurchased this so many times over the years, I have lost count. I swatched it on the back of my hand years ago and was so impressed at how it barely budged when I rubbed away at it after it dried, and I haven't looked back since. I have also bought this in several other colours, and all are fantastic.

I have oily eye lids, so a lot of liners and eyeshadows tend to crease …

Highlighters - COVER FX - Enhance Click in Celestial

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have this in Bubbly, not Celestial, but just had to write this review because I love this product.

This one of my most favourite subtle highlighters. It doesn’t pack a punch, nor does it contain a ton of glitters, but it looks so soft and natural on the skin. It makes my face look more glowy and brighter, and still looking like skin. It also blends like a dream with minimal …

Foundations - NYX Professional Makeup - Mineral Stick Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

To start with, I don’t use this as a foundation, I bought this in a shade darker to use for contouring and it’s amazing.

It looks natural, blends like a dream (with a brush and/or fingers easily) and it stays on all day. I actually prefer this to some of my high end bronzers/contour products. I like to travel with this too since I can save space by not bringing a brush and just using …
