Ok... this was a f*cking disappointment lmao.

I needed a new mascara and decided not to buy the same old Maybelline The Falsies I had been using for years and was getting sick of. The Lash Sensational mascara came to my mind, as it seems to be pretty raved about, and Maybelline is a very easy brand for me to have access to in my country. Even though I was a little iffy about the …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara

Jun/23/2018

Bare in my mind this is the first brow gel I've ever bought.

I decided to buy this product because I tipically fill in my blonde, sparse eyebrows every day, and was tired of seeing them all over the place and messy after 5 minutes. You can imagine how terrible they look at the end of a long day. This seem to be the cheapest and most easily available brow mascara I could get (I …

Skincare - Face - Avene - Thermal Spring Water

I have oily skin but, ever since I got out of the pill, I started using some chemical exfoliants on my skin to prevent acne from showing up. As a result, I've been getting some dryness on my lower cheeks, even though the rest of face is still oily. I bought this on the hopes of it replacing my moisturizer, because I can't use any underneath the exfoliants and I also don't like to …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Diva

Diva is a very dark red with a bit of burgundy to it. It's a beautiful, classic, classy shade that suits basically every single person in the world. It's the perfect shade to throw on with just some mascara and loads of highlighter: it makes a statement and takes very little effort.
Although Diva is gorgeous, the shade is not very unique, which means you can find dupes in …

Eye Primer - Etude House - Proof 10 Eye Primer

Feb/09/2016

Ohhh, what a GREAT primer. So, so good. No wonder it has such high ratings.

The Pros:
- I have very, very oily eyelids. This keeps my eyeshadow in place perfectly well.
- The consistency is very thin, which means it doesn't add thickness and doesn't compete with your eyeshadows, which could weigh down your eyes and feel uncomfortable. This basically feels like …

This is the only gel liner I've ever tried, and I really, really love it.
I was looking for the best gel liner in a lower price range and came across this as a recommendation from many people. This was said to be one of the best gel liners out there, comparable to much more expensive alternatives and better than every western drugstore gel liner.

The Pros:
- Mine is in …

I quite like this (coming from a girl with not much experience with face primers).
It's colourless and has a very thick texture. It comes out of the bottle in little balls. I actually don't like the packaging, it has so much air inside. Sometimes you have to shake it to really get the product close to the nozzle, even when it's brand new.
Aside from that, it fills in my …

Moisturizers - Avene - Cleanance Antishine Regulating Lotion

1.0

Jan/27/2016

I don't know what the hell went wrong, but this didn't work for me...
First of all, I wouldn't really call it a 'lotion', which generally gives the impression of a thin, runny consistency. This feels like silicone and it's rather thick. When you apply it to the face it almost feels oily, but as you rub it into the skin, it sinks in and feels weightless. It does …

I received a 5 ml sample of this product during Black Friday. I'm not sure how long it lasts, since I didn't use it frequently and still have product left on the packaging.

It's a white thick cream that spreads easily and moisturizes ok (I don't think it would be enough for dry skins, though). I like that it doesn't contain parabens, which is a plus we …

I bought this aproximatelly 4 years ago in the shade NC35, which is nice and yellow, and it didn't oxidize. I used it until the very end, so I definitely put it to test throughout a few years. I only wore foundation on weekends, and you don't need much, so it lasted forever.
At the time, my skin type was oily/very oily. There were also no such things as primers and I didn't …
