Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Foreo - Luna

I think it's important to use this product with the correct expectations. Many people are comparing Luna with Clarisonic and giving Luna bad reviews because it doesn't do for them what Clarisonic does. I bought the Luna Mini so this is what the review will be on.

Firstly, Clarisonic exfoliates. Luna does not. Clarisonic may provide a deeper clean for some but that was not my …

This is a beautiful peachy pink but it's very milky and hard to build up opacity. However, I've owned this colour for at least 2 years now and it's thickened up, which makes it AMAZINGGGG !! I've always complained about the milky formula and had to use at least 3 coats to achieve my desired opacity so now my prayers have been answered, I only need 2 coats now :)

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - orange tempera

Orange Tempera is a really nice and opaque nude peach colour with a slight pink undertone. I hate the texture and formula of MAC lipglasses but this one is worth putting up with just because of the colour. It's incredibly pigmented so you need to be careful! I dab a few spots over my lips and spread it out. It creates the perfect nude lip for many skintones (maybe not on VERY dark skin). I …Read more

This is a really creamy and pigmented warm pink colour. I can imagine it looking great on all skintones. However it is already melting at the base and so it's probably going to break off anytime now (I've used it 3 times total). This is my biggest complaint. Other than that it's a really great product and a great price.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Pure Zen

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2013

This is my holy-grail nude lipstick! It's been a 5+ years journey to find the perfect nude lipstick for my medium olive-toned complexion. It is a perfect combination of peach and pink, making it a healthy type of "nude". It is a cremesheen finish which is awesome because I find that most nude lippies are matte/semi-matte. On my medium-pigmented lips, Pure Zen looks exactly like the …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Exposed

Kind of disappointed. It's a nice colour but not pigmented enough for me. If you like sheer blushes then you might like this. Not me. I have to layer it on before I get enough colour on my cheeks. I don't know if I got a bad one but the texture is kinda dry and a bit chalky which makes it not pigmented.

Blush - Illamasqua - Powder Blusher - Tremble

Ok seriously now I understand what all the hype is surrounding Illamasqua blushes! The color Tremble is a warm baby pink with hints of coral. It is a FANTASTIC colour, something I don't have in my ginormous blush collection, surprisingly. I've waited sooooo long for Illasqua to hit Sephora stores in Canada and now it finally has! Us Canadians couldn't even get Sephora to ship to us …Read more

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

Yes this product is VERY expensive for what it is, but I use it everyday! Basically it's a highlighter but it has a gorgeous golden sheen and makes your face glow like it's being illuminated by candlelight! It's multidimensional and complex, unlike anything else I've tried before. A little goes a long way so it'll last you forever.

One of my favourite polish colours from any brand! A beautiful cool-toned light pink. It's like Essie Fiji but with a slight lilac undertone. For me it looks like the nail polish version of MAC lipstick in St Germain. The formula is great, creamy and opaque in 2 coats max. No complaints !
