Lips - ColourPop - Lippie Balm

2.0

2 months ago

Not very moisturizing, if you have dry chapped lips might look elsewhere, lips still feel dry and like I need to keep reapplying. Not a balm texture, more a thick lip gloss. Doesn't have any taste to it or burns my sensitive lips, which is great. Got the shade "Peach Bellini" and it doesn't smell much like peaches. Pleasant but very faint. No discernible tint on my lips, which …Read more

Looks a little light but once one it's a lovely pink. Problem is the formula. It's awfully streaky and takes about five coats before it's a solid color. Takes forever to dry because of this, though I notice it's a bit slow even if you use a single layer. Wanted to make this one work because it's so popular but could not... if it's just the color you're looking …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Unremarkable tinted moisturizer. It has a very chemically scent to it that lingers and forms an almost tacky film on the skin rather than drying down. It's semi-matte on my skin and evened out very little. My skin isn't perfect but I don't have glaring breakouts, and I didn't expect coverage.

It was hard to blend, which is odd considering it's such a liquidy …

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

It's an okay concealer. Not radiant or creamy, it is on the drier side. The color range is so much more limited compared to the NARS foundations and I can't find a color close enough to my neutral leaning cool-olive tone. Works decently for under eyes. Will settle in lines if you don't set it, and if you do, then it just makes it drier. Horrible for blemishes, if you have any sort …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Lipstick (All Shades)

I have the color "Clay Crush". It's a beautiful warm toned color that still looks subdued on my fair (about nc15) skin, but not invisible. The formula is indeed creamy, it reminds me of NYX smlc formula, just in a stick. Lasts quite sometime without eating, with eating it fades too much in the middle of the lips so you have to reapply. At the four hour mark it gets a little drying …Read more

Waxy and patchy. With some working and practice I can make my brows even, and yes, it lasts all day. But not worth fussing with because the product is so patchy and dry, and I just got it. I mix with some face oil to make it smoother but I don't believe in getting additional products to make another usable. Colors all lean warm.

Smudges under my eyes, and can't hold a curl throughout the day. I wanted to like it but I don't believe in getting additional products to make a single product work. Also it can get flaky af, if you wear contacts try it out without them in or else you'll be suffering.

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara

Does what it says it does. I use the dark color and It's nice and neutral leaning cool toned, not organe-y brown. "plumping" is minimal, but there's some volumizing there. I just don't think plump is the right word for it. LASTS FOREVER.

Good colors, neither too warm or cool, and you can layer the product on for extra tint. Overall the tint is light, good for laid back looks. However it has no hold and you constantly have to wipe the spoolie because it holds too much product.
