Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

Simply put, the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser is one of the best basic facial washes on the market and beats a lot of the fancy high end stuff they sell at Sephora. I have repurchased this cleanser 4x and will probably continue to do so. I am a bit of a product junkie but when it comes to my skincare I like to keep things relatively simple yet effective. Once I started …Read more

Conditioner - Giovanni - 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Conditioner

Jul/08/2018

WOW.

I am here to echo the previous reviewer's sentiments which are that this line is indeed a miracle. Why is this product line not more widely recommended for those who are struggling with severely dry & damaged hair?!
I forgot exactly how I came across this line but I think it was due to me surfing Amazon looking for hair products that contained avocado oil or olive …

Liquid - Dior - Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/20/2018

Dior has recently reformulated this and pushed out a new ad campaign similarly to what they did with the Diorskin Forever. Makes me laugh how all the beauty gurus and influencers just started discovering Dior foundations like they are revolutionary new products or something. Both the Diorskin Airflash and Forever foundations have been around for like a decade it's just that they're …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

May/05/2018

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I write this long overdue conclusion that truly grieves me. My relationship with this foundation has endured for 3 years and although I was deeply in denial for the majority of that time I can now face reality and say definitively that Estee Lauder Double Wear breaks me out. Basically, I am both a makeup junkie and someone that takes very good care of her …Read more

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

2.0

Apr/13/2018

Me and my mum both got shade matched to Fenty foundation during our latest sneaky shenanigans at Sephora. I was matched to 120 and she was matched to 220. Both our shade matches are impeccable and blend into our skins flawlessly. However, that is sadly where the positive points end. The "boundary breaking" shade selection is the biggest selling point with this line but unfortunately it …Read more

Liquid - Kat Von D - Lock-It Foundation

Amazing, gorgeous ultra full coverage foundation with a velvet matte finish.

I use the shade Light 43 Warm or Light 44 Cool as my foundation and L1 Neutral as my concealer. The Lock It foundation offers more coverage than the Lock It Concealer Creme and actually sets in place better. Lock It Foundation is something of a paradox because whilst it boasts an ultra full coverage, matte …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2018

Okay so honestly... I love this. I realize that MAC was the "It Girl" brand on YouTube back in the 2007-2012 days and a lot of people have moved onto other trendy makeup companies chasing the latest fads. But recently I decided to revisit good 'ol MAC and pick up a few of the cult classics. The artist at the MAC store matched me to the new shade NC10 which blended seamlessly into …Read more

Stick - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Stick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2018

As a self-professed makeup connoisseur I felt slightly ashamed that I had never tried this before. Apparently its been around for a long time and was Bobbi Brown's first foray into foundations thus acquiring something of a cult status in the beauty community. Stick foundations aren't really my "thing" but I was attracted to the convenience factor for a quick makeup …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Gabrielle

1.0

Nov/20/2017

To be honest all I have to say about this is that the grand Mademoiselle herself, Gabrielle Coco Chanel, would NOT approve of this shrinking violet of a perfume. It's totally unworthy of having the Chanel logo on it as far as I'm concerned...

Bland, boring, generic, vapid, girly etc all the things that Chanel utterly detested and never stood for. This is maybe alright for a …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Noir

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/10/2017

Wow this is utterly gorgeous.

At first spritz it's basically Coco Mademoiselle but then it gets darker, smokier and more woodsy. This is balmy and decadent. I was so enraptured by it that I bought a 100ml bottle. This is seductive and I guess that's what makes it "noir". This is one of those perfumes that will appeal to bold women however it is surprisingly …
