Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Format

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2014

i picked this up from my mum's collection of MAC makeup hoping that i would be able to make-do by using this blush as a bronzer. format is a reddish-brown colour that may look quite shimmery/glittery in the container, but translates into a nice sheen once applied to the skin. i've found that using a light hand with this product works best, as well as applying it liberally to where the …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2014

HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION. This stuff is amazing! It covers all my imperfections and leaves my skin looking fresh and glowy. I get a ton of compliments when I use this! I don't even use concealer anymore. I prefer to apply this with a sponge to get the most natural, airbrushed looking finish, then finish it with a translucent powder. This stuff stays put all day, just make sure to clean your …Read more

BB Cream - Pond's - Luminous Finish BB+ [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2014

I picked up a small tube of this at the grocer's in the hopes that I one day would find a solid BB cream that's cheap, but most importantly- good! This BB cream is just that!
I needed a BB cream in a shade that would temporarily substitute for my foundation (Covergirl 3-in-1 Outlast Stay Fab in 857 Golden Tan) because my skin tone got a little lighter through the months. I am in …

Jan/17/2014

this bb cream comes only in one shade in indonesia and claimed to be a shade that would be suitable to most-all indonesian skin shades; i don't know about that, but it sure does work for my skin tone. i wear this on a daily basis when i am trying to omit the use of my foundation. being someone who has skin that reacts rather quickly and sensitively to most products, despite it's quite …Read more

Masks - CHANEL - Masque Déstressant Pureté Purifying Cream Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/14/2013

I love it! I had this mask sitting around for a while and not too long ago decided I should try it out. My skin was quite oily, and definitely needed a boost before I jumped back into everyday brain work; so I picked it up and took it for a drive. The fact that it's called a 'cream' mask made me have my doubts, I've tried plenty of cream masks before, and I usually find them …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Every Month Is Oktoberfest [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2013

Every Month is Oktoberfest is a great colour for those who want to dabble in the dark side of nail polish colours, but don't want to rush into a flat and pure black! In the many years I've been painting my nails, I never owned black nail polish until I turned 16. The last colour I used before getting my lacquered hands on a black polish was this one! From afar, it may seem to be too …Read more

Blush - REVLON - Powder Blush in Soft Spoken Pink

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2013

Soft Spoken Pink is a 'standard' blush; it's nothing too special; the colour and finish kind of makes it generic to other 'less than great' make up brands out there. I don't know whether it's the colour itself that makes it mediocre, but I should mention that unlike other powders, this blush has a scent that is rather pleasing to the schnoz. Once this finishes …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Creme - Certainly Red 740

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2013

Certainly Red is an easy, cheap, and good product to have on hand. The shade, I would say, is quite universally flattering. I have tan-olive skin that tends to look too flashy or just plain wrong with the incorrect shade of red, but me, as well as my fair, pale, cool-toned friend both can wear this lipstick without looking too try-hard. Most of the time, I try to sport just a nice stain with it: …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - Brit

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2013

As much as I was looking forward to absolutely loving this fragrance, the first time I spritzed it on (and wore it out for a day), I was disappointed. (BOOHOO) The smell was the first thing that lured me into it, and I mean, how could you refuse to smell like Burberry BRIT? It didn't last for too long, in fact, the scent wore away very quickly, but it is quite pungent the first hour or two …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Sketch

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2013

I recently found Sketch in my mum's make up collection, she doesn't use things like eyeshadow and bronzers anymore (just sticks to eyeliner, blush, foundation and of course, lipstick) so I picked it up to use. I like how it has a slight glimmer to it, and that it's a dark enough colour to deepen up and add dimension to the crease without having it be black. I wore it to prom …Read more
