Lipstick - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Liquid Lipstick

Nov/18/2018

I like this liquid lipstick a lot. I have the shade “Ashton” which is a beautiful burnt orange/sienna on my lips. I always use a lipliner underneath (typically in a deeper shade to add depth) and it lasts really well—usually for 3-4 hours if I’m not eating.

I’ve used the applicator wand to apply it and it’s not my preferred method as it takes a lot of precision and can leave too much …

Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2018

I needed a foundation and happened to go to Deceim the day that the store was opening. I had no idea they stocked foundations, but I was instantly interested in trying one out. I have the serum foundation in 2.0N (neutral) and it matches my skin tone really well. I'm around an NC20-25 right now with olive skin. It's hard for me to find a foundation that isn't too yellow or orange …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter - Opal

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2018

I've used MAC's Superb highlighter for years, but mine recently broke so I had to find a replacement. I did a lot of research because I'm picky with highlighters and only really use one at a time, so I decided on the Becca highlighter because it looked amazing on someone with a similar skin tone to mine.

First off, I'm an NC20-25 most of the year. I'm …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel

Mar/14/2018

I really like this brow product. I'm going to compare it with Maybelline's Great Lash clear brow gel, because I was using that one for years before switching over to ABH. Price wise, the ABH clear brow gel is expensive, so it's much easier to buy a drugstore version instead of investing in a more expensive version. Is this brow gel worth $30 (CAD)? I think so, because it's the …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick

5.0

Jan/23/2018

I really, really like this matte lipstick. I've tried a good amount of them, and this has become the only one I actually bring around with me during the day. It beats out my more expensive liquid lipsticks.

I have the shade Mocha, which is a nice light nude shade. It's a bit more beige than Be My Baby, which is similar but more pink in colour. I usually line my lips first …

Lipstick - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteist Lip Paint - Namaste

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2017

I got this product from a family member, and I have the small sample size. I have light-medium olive skin and this lip paint is definitely a very pink shade (sort of like a ballet pink). When applied alone, I definitely would not wear it because it looks too light for my skin tone, and not in a flattering way. The shade is very specific and I don't think it would work with a variety of skin …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear - Uninterrupted [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2017

This eyeshadow is beautiful. The shade is unique and so interesting, and I use it on my eyes mainly in the summer, when my skin is more golden and tan. It's almost like a neutral avant garde shade - interesting enough that it stands out, but not so strange that it throws the rest of my makeup off. At times I'll deepen it with Saddle (matte eyeshadow from MAC) and it'll turn into a …Read more

Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - Cream Colour Base

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2017

I have the cream colour base in Midtone Sepia, which has lasted me years. I have light-medium olive skin and it's great for both my eyeshadow and cheek/face contouring. For me it really is something I can use all over my face. It adds depth and warmth after I do my foundation and/or concealer and I think the colour is beautiful.

For some skin tones (especially those that are more …

Eyeliner - MILANI - Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eye Liner

Dec/10/2017

This eyeliner is pretty good for the price. I don't wear it often (just a personal makeup preference), but when I do, I'm satisfied with the results. It's definitely not waterproof, as I've cried it in before and it definitely smudged around my eyes. It's also not the smoothest liquid eyeliner I've had, but it's really easy to work through.

Dec/10/2017

I got a small, 10 mL sample from Sephora and I'm glad it was free because I wouldn't buy this product again. It's really underwhelming, and I've had much better moisturizers.

It has a light floral scent, which is very nice, and its texture is light and creamy. It's not oily, but a pea-sized amount can cover my whole face. Apart from that, I found that I went …
