Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2016

I didn't use Revlon that much (other than the Photoready line) so I didn't know what to expect from the Colorstay line. I read a lot of good reviews about Colorstay liquid foundation, and I thought the creme formula would be just as good.
The container is made of glass - it's heavy and perhaps would break if I mindlessly drop it. It has a white plastic lid that protects the …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2016

I love this mascara! I'm basically not the kind of person who goes for volumizing mascaras, since it's not gonna look so natural. Since my natural lashes are short but not too sparse, this mascara's lengthening effect is what I'm after.
The application is smooth, no flaking or clumping in sight. It takes some time to dry, but with the help of a fan, it'll be fine. I …

Pressed Powders - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Translucent Mattifying Powder- All Shades

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2016

A great replacement for my loose setting powder - the HD version, also from ELF.
I got this mattifying powder in Tinted, as I tend to get tanned easily, and it does make the safest bet. It helps my skin staying matte after 5hours outside, but it doesn't stand against sweat (my country is really humid and some days might make you so sweaty, so...). After 5 hours, I usually need to touch …

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Matte Lip Color

Aug/05/2016

I really wanted to love this one, I just couldn't. I have in shade Coral, the shade I like but the consistency is awful. I find this to be drying (needs a lot of lip balm underneath, regardless how I prep my lips) and it's quite patchy when applied. It comes off really easily, as well.
I know a lot of people enjoy this lipstick, but I don't. I think it could be a bad batch I …

Blush - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Blush - Mellow Mauve

I'm not a huge fan of blush with shimmers, but I can deal with this one. The shimmer looks daunting on the pan, but less so in real life. The color matches my medium skin nicely, though when I'm slightly tanned I gotta need to find something darker. It doesn't wreak havoc on my sensitive skin, as well, so it's a steal!
The texture is powdery enough, although it's not …

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Lip Exfoliator

4.0

Aug/05/2016

This is my go-to exfoliator, and recently they've released some other variants (I have one of the newer one in Mint & the original). I personally prefer the texture of the original one, but the scent of Mint is quite amazing.
Use this at night or 20-30 minutes before applying your lipstick, then finish it with light layer of lip balm, and you're good to go. If you have cracked …

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Clear Brow & Lash Mascara Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2016

I really love this brow/lash gel from E.L.F!
I prefer using them as brow gels because the consistency is too heavy when I put the lash side on myself. It helps my brows stay in place even when I'm swimming/sweating, and because it's clear, there's no need to worry if it's going to rub off into awkwardness. The only downside is that it's rather difficult to find in …

Aug/05/2016

I have this one in Medium. I don't normally need concealer on daily basis because there's not much to cover, but when I do need some, this palette gives a decent result. I have no problems with breakouts when using this palette. The color matches my skin really well, and you can mix the shades to get the best match for your skintone.
However, I don't recommend to put on this …

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - NYX Eyeliner in Sapphire

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2016

Great selection of shades, great feel when applied. It stays on well enough on lids, even without primer. It fades quicker if you have oilier lids or sweat more, so a primer would help in such cases. I own a couple shades other than Sapphire, but it's one of my favorite along with the Black Brown. It does a great job when applied on your brows. Yes, brows. Think the hunger games' Caesar …Read more

Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2016

The packaging reminds me a little of NYX's soft matte lip creams - only in the color black. It has a doe-foot applicator and the product it picks up is quite creamy. It feels light on the lids and does help bring out the color of your eyeshadows, in addition to helping them stay longer in your lids. The price is quite affordable as well, and I'm not planning on splurging my cash for any …Read more
