Eye Shadow - ColourPop - Pressed Powder Shadow - Fault Line

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This has a pretty poor rating on the Colourpop site. I don't think it's actually bad - it's just a different texture from most of the Colourpop shadows. It'a satin shadow. While most Colurpop shadows are quite loosely packed, which makes them very easy to blend with pretty much any type of brush, this is more tightly pressed (similar to MAC), which also makes it more difficult …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios XL 50+ Anti-Shine Tinted Dry Touch Gel Creme

The color of this is pretty bad. I have light warm yellow-olive skin, NC20 in MAC. I somehow didn't notice that this was tinted before I came home and went to apply it. This is not "tinted" - this is colored! It has a heavier coverage than many of my foundations. Maybe that would be OK if the color suited me, but this has one single shade, and it is orange and about 2-3 shades too …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%

5.0

I have sensitive skin prone to hyperpigmentation and breakouts. I wanted something to use in-between my retin-A applications to exfoliate my skin. Since retin-A thins out the skin it needed to be gentle though.

I probably apply this in a way people would find strange... First some Matrixyl+HA from The Ordinary, then some marula oil all over, from the same company. Then 3-4 drops of this …

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

This is a thin, clear gel. I apply it as a first step, under other products from TO. It does give a little bit of hydration and doesn't at all bother my sensitive skin. No smell, no color, good ingredients.

I give this 3 lippies because while it gives a small amount of hydration, it doesn't add much to what I already use. One bottle lasts me a month, and I HAVE repurchased …

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss - Tiramisu

4.0

2 months ago

I'm NC20, and on me, this is a nude-brown color. It's slightly darker than my lips, with almost no rosy tone. I like it because it's quite pigmented, so I don't need to apply much to change the color of my lips. However, this also means that I can easily apply too much and end up with brown lips... Not my personal favorite, but I do like this gloss - it's moisturizing …Read more

I'm NC20, and this is close to my natural lip color, but leans pink. It's a moisturizing gloss that with a strawberry-vanilla smell and no taste. No shimmer. I like it for a natural look. For a gloss, this isn't sticky. I like that it performs well for a very low price.

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Thw texture of this is thin and not at all sticky. This dries very fast, and I agree that this is very matte and dry. If you like the crinkled paper-look for your lips, this will give you that after half an hour of wear. It's pretty nice that transfer with this is minimal, but for me, it's not worth how much this dries my lips out. Maybe this is something that can be a good choice on …Read more

Moisturizers - BIODERMA - Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30

1.0

2 months ago

This is a light pink, thick, silicony cream. It's not a slippery silicony texture, but a dry one. It doesn't really offer much hydration at all. The pale color of it is a bit difficult to blend out because of the texture: I ended up tugging on my skin quite a lot. Generally, the texture was quite horrible on my skin: the product balled up and flaked ff my skin. I'm not a fan of …Read more

Palettes - ColourPop - You Had Me at Hello Pressed Powder Shadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I'm NC20, warm-olive. This is a pretty basic palette, but it's also very well coordinated IMO: I can do A LOT of different looks with it. It has a good selection of matte, satin and shimmer shades, one of which is duochrome. The shades of this are slightly more tightly packed than later Colourpop palettes, but they are still easy to blend and wear all day on me without …Read more

Brows - ULTA - Ultra Slim Brow Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I have 3 of these. I definitely have brows, but they are a little sparse and not as wide as I like them to be. Usually I do them with some kind of firmly pressed taupe eyeshadow - I have normal skin, so I'd say about anything will work for it though. However: every time I use this eye pencil (I have it in the color Taupe), my brows look so natural!

It's a really thin, pretty …
