Loose Powders - CHANEL - Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2017

The packaging for this looks lovely on my vanity and stores a heap of product. The powder is soft, finely milled and gives a soft matte finish. This is one of the only loose powders that doesn't drain all the moisture from my skin leaving me cakey looking. I love using this to set my undereye concealer with a real techniques sponge. Unfortunately, the mattifying effect only lasts me the …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

May/12/2017

I don't really use this to remove my makeup. Even though people rave about micellar water with respect to removing makeup, I don't find any of them very effective. However, I use this as a gentle cleanser in the morning as I need something to remove the oil etc on my face after sleeping. Anything else in the morning dries out my skin for the day. This product is good value for money, is …Read more

Styling Products - Kinky Curly - Curling Custard Styling Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2016

This is one of my favourite products for hold. Although keep in mind that this does not have the hold of your typical hard hold gel. I didn't like it in the beginning and felt that it made my hair look flat while killing the curl. As people say, there is a learning curve to this product and no way to really teach how to use it. You have to go through trial and error and figure out what and …Read more

Conditioner - TRESemmé - Expert Selection Conditioner PERFECTLY (UN)DONE

May/21/2016

This is a really good silicone free conditioner that contains a lot of slip thanks to ingredients like kelp extract. So I find it to be one of the better conditioners for detangling. I find this is a pretty nice conditioner for low porosity hair because of that slip and the lubrication it provides, making it a good leave in. However, if you want something that provides deep hydration or something …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Full Lash Bloom by lashblast

May/21/2016

Very average mascara. Pretty pink packaging lures you in, but product didn't add much to my lashes. I mean, it looked pretty and clean initially but then in half an hour it made my lashes droop. I didn't even curl my lashes to begin with so my lashes really weighed downwards. At this point it didn't look horrible but didn't have enough going for it for me to continue use of …Read more

May/21/2016

One of my curly hair staples. I live in Australia and unfortunately we have very few curly brands available and those that we do have, tend be loaded with alcohols and dimethicone. AG however, is one brand we do get here so thank you AG! I love this product because of the magnesium sulfate it contains, making it truly curl enhancing. Helps me to create nice clumpy curls, giving them an extra …Read more

May/21/2016

OH I love this. New favourite daily foundation. It has replaced vitalumiere aqua for me. I have combination skin and found that vita aqua was making me look both oily and dry at the same time. I find the velvet makes me look less dry, while controlling the oil really well. Not trying to hate on the aqua, but I don't understand why people claim the aqua is designed for dry skin as I …Read more

Foundations - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

Apr/25/2016

This is probably my least favourite Chanel foundation out of the ones I've tried so far.
For pros I love the packaging and the chanel logo in beige on the bottle cap. I also like the smell and the luminous demi-matte finish, which isn't dewy at all. Out of all the Chanel foundations I own, this offers the most coverage. It isn't full but provides solid medium coverage …

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/03/2015

This is an affordable serum from Korea that contains a high concentration of vitamin C. It has a dropper applicator and a dark amber glass bottle. This product is notorious for going off quickly so I was careful to always tighten the lid after use and store it in the refrigerator. To my surprise, it lasted me a little over 3 months before turning orange and developing an ‘off’ smell. It does not …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - benefit Cosmetics - It's Potent! Eye Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2015

I'm a bit surprised at all the negativity for this product. I guess it is due to its claim that it diminishes dark circles. I've always doubted that an eye cream can do that anyway. I don't always use an eye cream, but if I do my requirements are: to be hydrating enough to plump up some fine lines, not be too greasy and that it doesn't contribute to anything like milia. This …Read more
