Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2018

I always thought this did nothing to prime my face before makeup but today I realized that it made the HUGE pores on my nose disappear... nothing except applying certain foundation in circular motion does that. But that’s about it, it doesn’t do much in oil control, but did a better job in moisturizing some dry patches, although not to an extent that they “disappear”. Somehow 11.5mL was the full …Read more

Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/31/2018

Heavy, heavy, heavy... it’s just heavy it won’t hold my curl at all. I have straight lashes that point downwards (typical Asian lashes ugh!) and this does not look pretty at all. One coat is enough but the distribution is uneven (the root of my lashes aren’t coated at all in only one go), tried smudging some off the tube but it was super messy, the end of the tube then had all these dried …Read more

Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist 18HR Curl & Hold Mascara

Dec/16/2017

The worst mascara I’ve used but maybe that’s just me because I have straight and short Asian lashes. The texture is too creamy and you can dispose too much products in one go, which makes my lashes look like spider legs. I dislike that. It makes my lashes look thick and crumps together, with bits and bits of mascara, which can be gotten rid of later on using a brush or by using a tissue to wipe …Read more

Lipstick - KORRES Natural Products - Guava Lipstick (Any Shade)

4.0

Dec/15/2017

I’ve always been a big fan of Korres’s makeup and skincare but this did not quite meet my expectation. The smell and the texture remind me of Essence lipsticks. It’s creamy but not sticky, yes, but it is not very smooth when I apply on my dry lips, so I don’t see it to be as moisturizing as other reviews have said. This is a standard lipstick in small volume. I bought it as a trio kit where I got …Read more

Blush - KORRES Natural Products - Zea Mays Powder blush in 16 Pink

5.0

Dec/06/2017

This is a muted light pink that looks EXTREMELY natural on my nc15 skin. It is not the kind of blush on top of the cheekbones because that wouldn’t get the best out of this blush. I dab it lightly on apples of my cheeks right in the middle and it looks like my skin. Texture is just as buttery as always. No visible shimmer but luminous finish.

Dec/03/2017

What can I say, I got this for £10 on a sale but it’s no longer available in my town and I’m finding myself hating my new day cream. I used this (for oily/combination) in summer when I had oily skin and in winter when I had dry skin. Never had a problem with it, it keeps my face moisturized and it sinks in within a minute, allowing my sunscreen and makeup to be put on later. It has a strong smell …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2017

I initially thought this did nothing at all on my skin and had left it aside for months. The texture was like any other the Ordinary serums, fluid and colorless, a bit tacky after it’s absorbed, somehow it turned into some kind of gel after some time but there was no issue getting it out of the tube. When applying it sometimes leathers. I’ve worn it under makeup and it was fine. Did not …Read more

Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2017

This is so much better than the coverage one in terms of texture and staying power. This is much more watery than the coverage foundation but only a tad less coverage than the other. To be honest, it was easy for the other one to look cakey or “makeup-ish” so I only used little dots every time, maybe that’s why I think the coverage is the same. But the serum foundation feels better on spreading …Read more

Not sure about how I feel about this. Definitely premium quality - does NOT shed AT ALL, sturdy handle and soft, dense bristles... I have washed it 5 times and nothing changed, good as new. Bristles are just as soft, shape is still there, no shedding AT ALL. Incredible, so much better than the high ends one that I spent so much more on. but the handle is so short when I used this to apply mineral …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster

Nov/06/2017

Having used The Ordinary HA serum I've found this a more concentrated version. It is less watery than HA + B5 and it is more spreadable. When applied alone, it doesn't pull my face like HA + B5 and I really do feel like it does a better job in moisturizing my face. Definitely needs a cream to cover on top of it, do not use it alone.
I've also tried adding this into my …
