Lips - Bite Beauty - Amuse Bouche Lipstick

I absolutely love these. Their only cons are the lemon fragrance (can we please just keep perfume out of makeup altogether?) and the fact that a dark color like Maple (my fav) tends to bleed a little so you may need a clear liner. But they are so smooth and long-lasting, have such a beautiful satin finish and leave such a gorgeous even stain when they do fade that I think they're more than …Read more

Eyeliner - Charlotte Tilbury - Rock 'N' Kohl Eyeliner Pencil - Eye Cheat

I, too, was lured by the promise of bigger looking eyes and like the sucker I am, paid $35 for this. So is it worth it? Maybe if you wear a full beat every day it would mesh well with that look... but with my everyday look, which is very light coverage with the focus on the lips and not the eyes, it has two modes: (1) imperceptible and gets blinked away immediately, or (2) wow, there is something …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Technakohl Liner - Photogravure

I really like the color which is a very natural looking yellow-gray kind of brown-black, but this smudges in the heat and that's a dealbreaker for me. The texture is also too soft for my liking; it's easy to apply too much product when tightlining and that also doesn't help with the smudging issue.

Moisturizers - COSRX - Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream

3.0

This is a nice rich cream that works well for nighttime, however it's not really special or exceptional in any way and it's a little expensive for what it is (the jar is so tiny!). I won't be repurchasing.

Highlighters - Glossier - Haloscope Highlighter (ALL COLORS)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Too subtle for me... and for the record I'm someone who has totally drunk the Kool-Aid when it comes to natural and less-is-more makeup. I'm a tightlining, brown-mascara-buying, MAC-Face-and-Body-wearing hoe who wants to make it look like the only makeup on my face is my red lipstick. And also apparently a smidge of highlighter, because it bothers me that I REALLY cannot see this stuff …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Timeless Skin Care - Squalane 100% Pure

5.0

5 months ago

This stuff is great. You know how some people's skin has that glow to it, where they're not oily exactly but they sure are buttery smooth, and they look like they just woke up and applied a fresh coat of moisturizer even though it's 3 in the afternoon? This finally gave me that glow. I just mix a drop in with my moisturizer at night and BAM, beautiful skin. It's not irritating …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Audacious Lipstick (All Shades)

5.0

6 months ago

I don't know how they did it, but somehow these last like mattes while having an insanely creamy texture. They're not cheap but in this case I think the exhorbitant price is worth it. Everything from the formula to the magnetic-click packaging is so well thought out and feels so luxe (or at least as luxe as plastic can feel). The shade I bought, Mona, lasts six hours and is opaque in …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

3.0

6 months ago

This is definitely Glossier's best product and the only one of those I've tried that I would recommend using. It's very easy to apply and gives you extremely natural looking, full, soft brows that last all day. As a brow gel, it doesn't have much hold, which doesn't bother me but might bother you. My main gripe is that the tube is tiny. It feels like I'm getting a …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Dark Side

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Dark Side is a vampy berry color in a shiny, moisturizing finish. I love the color but for some reason the texture really catches onto and accentuates dry spots on my lips in a way that only the driest of mattes have ever done. I definitely didn't expect that from such a hydrating lipstick! I think the Amplified texture just doesn't agree with me, which is a shame. The color is …Read more
