Palettes - Too Faced - Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2017

Too Faced has been knocked down for being gimmicky, with this palette being no exception (peach-scented, hello). But, if you can stop listening to beauty gurus constantly bitching about Too Faced's marketing and aesthetic, you'll find that they do have good quality makeup. This palette's colour payoff is great (brown girl friendly, surprisingly!) and both buildable and blendable …Read more

Eye Shadow - Zoeva - Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette

No words will describe what a pleasant feeling it is when you buy a palette on a whim and it becomes a headliner in your collection. I absolutely love this palette - it's a good staple for glam and evening looks. Blendable, buildable, good pigmentation (brown girl friendly!) - nothing to say but the highest of praises for this palette. They do work best with Zoeva's own brushes, not to …Read more

Foundations - Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation

What a shame that not many are as into this foundation as I am! What's excellent about it for me is really the shade match. I'm tan with neutral undertones and it's quite hard to find a foundation in my shade that is not yellow to hell. The colour 'Golden' is perfect on me. I'm currently on my second bottle.

I've been told it feels a little oily but …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

3.0

This is what I call a classic backup foundation. A foundation that will do the job when you misplace and/or left your regular foundation at home when traveling. Almost every drugstore has this and the shade range must be commended in a world of too many light and medium shades. It does mattify but I find it has a tendency to melt in more humid conditions. A good old B minus.

Stick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Oct/26/2017

I was recommended by a friend who raved about this product and it did not disappoint. I'm always wary of stick foundations, fearing it would be too dry - but this is the right balance of moisture and sturdiness for its kind. It left my skin looking matte but with dimension, blemishes disappear easily and a concealer is barely needed. I'm not too crazy about the packaging as its …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Dallas

I use this a bronzer instead as I needed some colour into my foundation routine in this dreary winter (despite being tan already). My go-to bronzer is by Sweet Lei Lani but I needed an alternative as I can't find it easily here in the UK so I switched to Dallas out of the SA's recommendation. Loved it! Works well with my skin, gives me the flexibility to build up the shade onto my skin …Read more

Eyeliner - benefit Cosmetics - Eye Bright

I picked this up on an impulse, wanting a quick and easy shortcut to highlighting my eyes. Perhaps it's my fault for not using it properly... but how else am I supposed to use it? Did nothing for me - made me look like I have faint lines under my eyes, made me look rather tired. I'm glad if it works for you - definitely doesn't for me, though!

Skincare - Face - shu uemura - Depsea water

Yes, it looks suspiciously useless but it's the farthest thing from a gimmicky product. I have tried almost all of their scents, my favourite being mint and bergamot. I'm now on rose and I love it just as much. My skin have never been better, less prone to acne, more moisturised, and gives a dewy finish every time I use it. I have no idea what kind of drug they put in there as they …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - shu uemura - UV Underbase Mousse SPF 30+

I have so much of this product it's ridiculous! There's about 6 cans in my collection including their new BB mousse formula. Love it to bits and won't go anywhere without it as it's the perfect cover up before any powder. You can even use it on its own when you don't want to use anything else but mascara and lipstick.
