Wow. My new concealer!

I use this for my eyes/undereyes only, not as a highlighter.

I've seen the reviews and was skeptical....mmmffff....really? ANOTHER hyped up product? How many people are getting paid to write all this? They don't understand, these young'uns...they don't have the eyebags I've had to fight all my life, now progressively …

Skincare - Face - Banila Co - dear Hydration boosting cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/14/2018

Most know Banila Co for their cleansing balm, a cult favourite. So naturally, while in Korea, I couldn’t help but poke around in the store and see what other products they had to offer.

The dear hydration boosting cream was displayed as a new product and piqued my interest. They had sample jars so I just had to give it a try. I mean, it was a beautiful petal pink, and the packaging …

Concealers - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Aug/07/2018

I use or have used the Urban Decay Naked foundation, and have repurchased 3 times, and have been overall very pleased.

So, of course, when I found that they had concealer, it must be the same, right?

WRONG. Sadly, wrong. I think UD has great products, so I have to admit I am greatly disappointed. When I first applied it in Sephora, it looked beautiful. It was light to …

Highlighters - Urban Decay - Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2018

The colour I purchased was Sin. In palette, it looked quite yellow to me but i would describe it as champagne. Upon application, it is much more subtle and the colour was quite "natural" (considering I dont produce sparkles) for a highlighter. I wanted something more natural that I can wear daily.

My thoughts:
PROS
- subtle enough for daily wear
- champagne …

Treatments (Eye) - Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronised Complex II

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2017

Hmm. Quite disappointed. The reason I purchased this was due to the long reputation of its predecessor, and its time to invest in a solid anti-wrinkle eye cream.

I’ve used it now for a month. I can say the only thing that it looks to have helped with is with fine lines. If this is your only battle, maybe it will work. However, I also need to combat dark circles and puffiness, and did …

Blush - Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll Kiss & Blush Lips & Cheeks (All Shades)

I love YSL lip cosmetics. Rouge de Vernis is my go-to, although I admit I find their colour range to be quite limited, and enjoyed their original range.

This new addition I think fills the gap in their offering of matte lip stuff. But at least they did it a good job with it. Here's my take:

PROs:
- Great matte colours. I think that the range covers many of what …

Waterproof One

Hmm. Surprised at the high rating. There are many things I like about it, but at the end of the day, it didn't do what I needed.

PROS
- price! Essence has great quality, affordable price
- brush and not felt tip offering - there are many felt pens out there and the accurate, beloved brush seems to be harder to find on the …

Skincare - Face - Pixi - Hydrating Milky Mist

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2017

I have repurchased this product for the second time so i do like it.

Here's what I like:
- truly hydrating. It's not one of those mists that feel like it dries up and its gone
- packaging - yes, it actually sprites properly, and doesn't have any small nozzle head that might come off. I appreciate that Pixi put thought into it
- lid easily twists off. So? …

Blush - MILANI - Rose Powder Blush - Romantic Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2017

I've had this for a few months now and still happy with my purchase. I like Milani products - great price point, wide variety of colours, generally, to accommodate different preferences and skin tones, lipsticks and blushes apply well.

This blush, like many have said, is a flattering Colour for me. But, be light handed or it can apply dark. But because it is a powder, it allows …

Moisturizers - Yes To - Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer

Aug/05/2016

Disappointed. This is the first time I have purchased this brand. I guess I should have read the reviews before purchasing.

I can see why some people like this - it does feel like it is moisturizing as I feel my skin and it doesn't feel dry.

I'm not sure how best to explain it, I guess it does not truly penetrate as when I triage my eyes rows and stretch my skin …
