Concealers - wet n wild - Photo Focus Concealer

Jul/09/2017

This is a good concealer for the price - it has decent coverage, lasts pretty well all day once set with a powder, doesn't oxidize on my pale skin, and doesn't crease under the eyes too much throughout the day. It does wear down and crease a little bit, but since it's so cheap I'm not too bothered about it. The downside of this product is that the shade range is very limited - …Read more

Highlighters - ColourPop - Super Shock Highlighter (All Colors)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2017

I bought the ColourPop highlighter in Lunch Money because it had been so raved about online. Though it's a pretty champagne color, I was a little underwhelmed with the product after all the hype. The texture is kind of strange and bouncy, and I was confused at first at how I should apply it. The best way I've found is using a small stipple brush, but I'm just not over the moon …Read more

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

5.0

Jul/09/2017

Cloud Paint has made me a cream blush convert! It blends into the skin seamlessly and stays on all day, giving a beautiful flush to the cheeks. The color I purchased was Puff, and I definitely want to try out some of the others. Though it's a bit pricey for the small tube, a little bit goes a long way and I anticipate my tube lasting me a long time. The consistency is more of a gel or serum …Read more

Cleansers - Glossier - Milky Jelly Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2017

I had been dying to try out Glossier for a while, and this cleanser is a good place to start with the brand. It has a wonderful jelly consistency and is extremely gentle on the skin and eyes (the cleansing agents are the same as in contact solution!). It has a light rose scent, not too obtrusive, and it didn't break out my hypersensitive, acne-prone skin. I wouldn't use it as a makeup …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

Jul/09/2017

My holy grail liquid liner! I've never been able to do winged liner as quickly as I can with the Kat Von D Tattoo liner (I'm down to 1 minute flat). Even using it on a daily basis, it takes me ages to go through a liner, which makes the high price point worth it. I can't speak for any of the other colors, but the black shade is excellent and the brush is the best I've used so …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2017

I got a sample of this mascara in a Birchbox and at first I was absolutely smitten with the way it made my lashes look. It adds great length and volume, and I actually like using the spiky tip of the brush to lengthen the outer corners of my lashes (usually I find those types of brushes annoying). This mascara really does give an amazing look to the lashes.
That being said, I won't be …

Tinted Moisturizer - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

5.0

Jul/09/2017

Best BB cream I've tried so far - this is the only one that hasn't broken out my hyper-sensitive skin (including the previous Smooth Operator formula, which my skin hated). Whatever they did when they reformulated and repackaged it worked, because this is my daily BB cream, especially in the summer! It has light coverage and the shade Ivory matches me (I also wear Ivory in the Tarte …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Tarte Cosmetics - Clean Slate Poreless 12 hr Perfecting Primer

Jul/09/2017

LOVE this primer! It's the only one I've used for years, and I've repurchased it countless times. I truly find that it makes a difference to the appearance and wear time of my foundation. It smooths out pores and leaves a nice canvas for foundation (I use Tarte's Amazonian Clay foundation, but I also use this with just BB cream and it really extends the wear time) …Read more

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2017

This is the only foundation I've used for the past couple years, and I've repurchased it time and time again. It's the only foundation I've found that doesn't break out my sensitive, acne-prone skin. The shade range is excellent (I wear Ivory) and it has SPF, which is great.
I would say the coverage is more medium than full, but since I apply it with my fingers that …

Liquid - COVERGIRL - TruBlend Liquid Makeup

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2014

CoverGirl recently repackaged and re-promoted this foundation, so I decided to give it a go because I remembered liking it back in the day (way, way back in the day) when I first started out with makeup. However, a lot has changed in drugstore makeup since then, but this product seems to be the same subpar foundation it used to be. It didn't cause me to break out, it matched my skin well …Read more
