Brows - Charlotte Tilbury - Legendary Brows Brow Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have quite full brows, but I like to give them more color and a lot more length. Usually my routine is to draw on the ends with ABH Brow Wiz, then brush Glossier Boy Brow on top. Still adore those products, but CT Legendary Brows eliminates the need for me to pre-fill! This gel has a lot of pigment that is easy to control with the lovely tiny brush (that brush is a perfectionist’s dream), so …Read more

Eye Shadow - Natasha Denona - Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I’m guiltily admitting that I own a lot of other ND shadows. While I’ve objectively adored the formula, there’s not much occasion in my daily work life that calls for funky colors... so they’ve sat on the shelf. Yall can groan “ugh, another brown palette” at the sight of Biba, but let’s just be real that these are the most usable shades for your average office person.

I enjoy the …

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I wouldn’t call myself a chemical exfoliant connoisseur, but I do have about a dozen (mostly cult classic) AHAs and BHAs in my rotation that I never go a day without using one. This is my favorite acid, hands down, that gives me the most discernible immediate results. My biggest problem is closed comedones on the sides of my cheeks and around my jaw, and while they are not extremely bad or …Read more

Mascara - Sisley-Paris - So Intense Fortifying Volumizing Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2018

Wow, this is the best mascara I've ever used for bottom lashes (pretty amazing for top too, though!) - it lengthens, volumizes, and separates without creating clumps or spider legs. I have sparse East Asian lashes that do not look too visible on their own, and I tend to have a difficult time applying bottom lash mascara because it's hard to maneuver the wand around without getting …Read more

Pressed Powders - Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder

Mar/23/2018

First, I need to say that I am not liberal with powder application (I thinly dust powder on selective areas to set, but never all over), but I hit pan on this Airbrush Flawless Powder within a month. I had to pick my jaw off the floor when it happened - crazy low cost efficacy of this powder and I will not be repurchasing.
But at the end of the day, this really is a beautiful powder. What it …

Tinted Moisturizer - Charlotte Tilbury - Unisex Healthy Glow Hydrating Tint

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2018

I'm in the camp that just could not get a single attractive application out of Unisex Healthy Glow. The white cream quickly heats up upon application into an orange, gritty, shimmer infested layer that sits on top of my skin and refuses to play nice with primer or foundation. Perhaps this has to do with skin type - I'm dry and this not only emphasized pores but also any sort of blemish …Read more

Blush - Sisley-Paris - PHYTO-BLUSH ECLAT

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2018

Fresh flushed gorgeousness in the tackiest packaging. Ah, Sisley, I shouldn't need to tell you that most people do not want to pay this much money for zebra print. But the Phyto Blush Eclat has made its way into my heart within the week that I've owned it, and is officially reigning supreme in my lineup of blushes. I have light olive skin and the shade 1 Peach is so natural and lovely …Read more

Concealers - By Terry - Terrybly Densiliss Concealer

Mar/17/2018

I love this concealer for its corrective properties. I use the shade 1 in Fresh Fair, and it is a light-medium peachy pink that is amazing in canceling out under eye dullness.
The shade range does not follow a logical sequence, as in, don't blind buy it based on how light your skin tone is. From what I've tested, shades 1 and 4 are neutralizers, 1 is lighter than 2. Shades 2 and 3 …

Eye Shadow - Charlotte Tilbury - Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2018

I was super hesitant about trying these cream shadows because a few of my favorite trusted beauty reviewers were disappointed by the longevity of these. I have hooded Asian eyelids, so I care a lot about my shadow adhering properly to the lids and staying immobile throughout the day. I finally purchased Bette because the copper is quite unique (golden shimmers on a bronze base) and have not …Read more

Lip Liners - Marc Jacobs - (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/11/2018

I ADORE this liner in the shade ‘Nudeist’! I have NC20ish olive skin, and have muted lips that definitely lean more brown than mauve. A lot of gorgeous nude lipsticks and liners just have too much pink (or the wrong pink undertone) and makes my skin look sallow. This is the one liner that matches my natural lip color to a T and is my go-to for daily use and thoroughly imperceptible overlining …Read more
