Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Born to Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation

4.0

1 month ago

Let me preface this by saying I do have an oily t zone, so of course this very dewy foundation isn’t perfectly suited to my skin.

I do like it despite my oily forehead! The foundation looks very natural and glowy, gorgeous on my cheeks and even my nose which is also oily but gets some dry skin on the sides.

It’s a bit of a hassle to put a different foundation on my forehead …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

Good serum, feels good and applies nicely. No weird scent, no sticky residue left over.

I apply to damp skin and then top it with a moisturizer. I really like the combo, and it’s great that this option is so affordable.

Will repurchase! Would be nice if it was available in a larger size at sephora :)

*EDIT* had to come back and give this a 1 star rating as I’ve been having a HORRIFIC allergic reaction to this product for the last week after using it for over a month. At first my lips were just dry and cracked but then they starting swelling hugely and randomly and then a ton of tiny gross bumps formed along the entire outer perimeter of my lips. I would highly recommend people STAY AWAY FROM …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Sol de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Love this stuff, obsessed with the scent. I’ve started to buy everything from Sol de Janeiro that comes in this scent!!

I use this as a hand cream, it’s thick and smells great and moisturizes without feeling greasy or sticky. I actually like the Bum Bum better as a hand cream than the actual hand cream!

It’s pricey but I love it

Love this brush. Considering getting another lol

I use it for highlighting, it’s awesome for loose highlighters and would be great for setting powder especially under the eyes.

Super light, soft bristles that don’t shed. Washes clean easily and dries quickly. I keep it in its little plastic cover inside my makeup bag to protect it’s shape. Great value, would highly recommend! I …

Brows - MILANI - Easy Brow

3.0

I bought this on a whim in the shade taupe. I didn’t expect the pencil to be so thick in size, but I ended up not minding it as much as I thought I would. The main problem is the colour, which is very very yellow. I actually prefer it more yellow rather than the red tone all drugstore brow pencils seem to have, but it’s still not really taupe.

Would buy again if they came out with a …

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette

4.0

Definitely a gorgeous palette, the colour scheme and the packaging are stunning.

The mattes perform so well, pair nicely with each other and other palettes. The shimmers leave a bit to be desired, but I think I’m spoiled by Colourpop and their incredibly affordable, incredibly reflective shimmer single shadows.

I’m glad I bought this palette, happy to have it in my collection …

Love this oil! My only complaint is I wish it came in a larger bottle. Like twice the size? Lol :)

My oily t zone loves this stuff. I use it after using any product with retinol and the combo is just amazing. I can’t get enough. It’s such a good lazy-girl nighttime routine for me: micellar water, retinol, rose hip oil. Bing bang boom, off to bed in like 5 mins. (Note, if you have …

Moisturizers - Fourth Ray Beauty - Face Milk

I first bought their Turmeric Face Milk, prior to the release of the bigger bottles of face milk. I really like the turmeric one, it smells so so good and has a nice moisturizing feel. It does have shimmer though, which rubs me the wrong way. I don’t really want shimmer in a product that borders between skincare and makeup.

So having nearly finished the turmeric, I ordered the large …

Highlighters - wet n wild - MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder

5.0

2 months ago

I bought the WnW loose highlight in the shade “You Glow, Girl” and it is absolutely stunning.

The product is very fine, very reflective, and has a gorgeous cool pink base tone which is my absolute fav as a pale cool toned gal. There is very fine shimmer/small particle sparkle that you only see in direct light, but if that bothers you I’d avoid this highlight. The product adheres really …
