Foundations - Giorgio Armani - My Armani To Go Cushion Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I have such an exhaustive collection of cult classic foundations that I’ve never felt intense FOMO for any particular one that I don’t own. Except for this. Been hearing about it from Asian and Aussie beauty bloggers rave about it for a year but it hasn’t been stocked in the US. When Armani’s USA site FINALLY released this foundation (Nordstrom has it now too but it’s sold out) a couple weeks …Read more

Lipstick - TOM FORD - Lip Color - Spanish Pink

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Kind of confused at how Spanish Pink has been hailed as such a universally attractive color. I purchased it because I'm essentially the same skin tone as several Youtubers who have named this as one of their favorite pinks year over year. Something about the white based pink with the blue undertone made me look like I stepped straight out of an early 2000's Britney Spears video as a …Read more

Brows - Hourglass Cosmetics - Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I’ve read the other reviews and can attest that perhaps this gel isn’t quite ideal for sparse brows. I have thicker brows and have fallen head over heels for this product! The price is appalling especially for how little product you get, but damn does this coat my brows perfectly and give great hold.

Think about why you like or dislike a mascara - I personally go for the ones that …

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

My intent was to use this exclusively for my lower lashes because the brush is teeny tiny. As an Asian gal with sparse lashes who has a hard time landing mascara directly on the lashes versus all over my eyelids, I needed all the help I could get.

As I gently tugged at lower lashes with my new tube (which was fantastically not goopy wet as many new mascara tubes can be), I realized I’d …

Brows - Charlotte Tilbury - Legendary Brows Brow Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 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.

5 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.

5 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

4.0
Created with Sketch.

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
