Jun/10/2017

Me: Olive NC20ish with normal to dry and very sensitive skin.

What I love: Beautiful dewy skin like finish. It looks so natural on the skin and blends in perfectly. I love using just a little of this on its own on any redness around my nose/ cheeks and then under my eyes. It makes me look like I have naturally fabulous skin and not like I'm wearing makeup. A bit of this + …

Lips - Glossier - Generation G

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/10/2017

Hmmm I had such high hopes. I usually like a bold lip but was drawn to the Glossier popsicle stained lip look given by these.

What do I like? They definitely give that stained look to the lips - I have Zip and Jam. Both are very sheer but can be layered to something more like a light level of colour. Zip is my preferred shade of the two being a lovely neutral red. If it was possible …

Cleansers - Glossier - Milky Jelly Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/10/2017

Me: Normal-dry and very sensitive skin prone to redness and rashes.

What I love: Pretty much everything about this product. It has a beautiful thick texture that feels lovely to massage into your skin - it starts out like a rich gel and turns to an oil when water is added. I generally love milk or cream cleansers and usually find any other cleanser type leaves my skin feeling tight …

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/25/2017

Me: Sensitive and dry skin prone to redness.

What I like: Gives an instant dewy finish to the skin - removes the powdery or cake-y look that can appear when layering foundation, concealer and powders. It's a readily accessible product and well packaged for travel with a lock on the spray top.

What I don't like: This just doesn't work for my sensitive skin …

Blush - Burberry - Light Glow blush #7 Earthy Blush

5.0

Feb/18/2017

Me: Olive NC20ish with dry and sensitive skin.

What I like: I absolutely adore this blush! This shade and Peony are my two HGs. I tend to wear this more as a blush than a contour powder. I like natural but polished - me but better - makeup looks and this is the perfect nude shade for that type of look. It counters the surface redness that I sometimes get and adds a radiant …

Feb/18/2017

Me: Olive NC20ish with dry and sensitive skin prone to redness.

What I like: I picked this up while on holidays in Japan and it's a lovely finely milled setting powder. It has a very natural silky finish with a little bit of glow to it, although there is no visible shimmer. It has very sheer coverage - just a touch more than a translucent powder and comes in one light beige …

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2017

Me: Dry and sensitive skin prone to redness.

What I like: This was the first concealer that I'd ever used that didn't highlight dryness or flakiness (excluding my undereye area). It's great for covering up general redness or the occasional pimple - leaving a very natural skinlike finish. Its ability to look natural while being a fuller coverage product is quite …

Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Soothing Protective Facial Cream

4.0

Feb/15/2017

Me: Dry and sensitive skin prone to redness.

What I like: I can always rely on this as a simple hydrating moisturizer that won't irritate my skin, cause redness or make it itchy. It won't do anything other than moisturize but thats ok, I like to rely on serums for antioxidant or other benefits. It doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky or shiny so I can use both …

Powder - Giorgio Armani - Luminous Silk Powder

4.0

Feb/13/2017

Me: Olive NC20ish with dry and sensitive skin.

What I like: I purchased this after a MUA used it on me for my wedding. It's a lovely silky pressed powder that doesn't look too dewy or too matte - it's that perfect in between. It has sheer to light coverage - and never seems to get cakey looking on the skin. I used this to lightly set makeup on my t-zone and around my …

Liquid - Charlotte Tilbury - Light Wonder Foundation

4.0

Feb/13/2017

Me: Olive NC20ish with dry and sensitive skin prone to redness.

What I like: This is a beautifully glowy finish - probably one of the dewiest foundations that I've ever tried. It's very radiant and perfect when my skin is feeling particularly dry and dull. I've been wearing this in the Australian summer weather (80% humidity and very hot) and have usually needed to …
