Styling Products - PANTENE - Pro V Air Spray Alcohol Free Hairspray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have the #4 extra strong hold 'airspray'.
Was on the market for an alcohol free hairspray after I noticed L'oreal Elnett was drying out my hair + the strong lingering alcohol scent started giving me headaches. This guy claims to be alcohol free* and the * makes note that it is ethanol free in specific (also note that it does have dimethicone in case you are silicone …

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Urban Cover Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I picked this foundation up mainly because of the SPF50 in it- I am lazy with my sunscreen application (aka I never apply it... I know, I'm sorry) so if I can kill two birds with one stone, I'm all in. Plus I've had previous luck with Maybelline foundations, the matte+poreless fit me is a HG of mine.
The finish of this foundation is slightly more glowy and dewy than that of …

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Bite Beauty recently reformulated this lip balm and I'm really bummed. Previously, the balm applied super thick and waxy (in a good way though) which made it long lasting, keeping my lips hydrated for hours. Also had no distinct taste, which I appreciated.
This was a pleasant surprise for me as I'm a lip balm addict- any other lippie I would be reapplying at least 3x an hour but …

Top/Base Coats - essence - Express Dry Drops

You need this. In fact, you needed it yesterday.
Coming from a history of gel polish, I'm spoiled with instantly dry nails that I never need to worry about.
The most tedious part of regular nail polish is the drying part for me, I have !no! patience alongside !!no!! tolerance for smudges or any sort of imperfection on my nails; the two makes for a bad combination lol.
Before I …

Lip Gloss - DuWop - Lip Venom

3.0

5 months ago

So.. This stuff gave me a mild burn on my lips. HOWEVER- it works.
It filled in all the lines on my lips and turned them into a very flattering shade of pinky red (as if I'd spent the last while in an intense makeout session with a hottie). You know that slightly swollen, plumped up lips type of look plus the shine of the gloss. I personally love when plumping glosses turn my lips into …

Lip Gloss - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - GLOSS BOMB Universal Lip Luminizer - Diamond Milk

4.0

6 months ago

If you want your lips to shine like how a diamond does when it catches light, this is the gloss for you.

I realized just how much I love this gloss when I pulled out a compact and checked out my face in direct sunlight- omg. My lips looked super plump, juicy and exactly like what diamond milk would look like if that was an actual thing (though I suppose it is now.. thanks Rihanna) The …

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

These little guys are a dream come true!
I've never been into blush, I usually just bronze all over and call it a day. I figured I'd give liquid/cream blush a try to see if I'd like it better- I tried NARS liquid blush and was not a fan. Dried up on my skin way too fast, hard to blend out, colour selection was meh and it was $$$.

On the other hand, Glossier's …

I am a loyal user to Crest 3D whitening strips (Crest 3D Whitestrips Supreme FlexFit, the one with 21 treatments) and this mouthwash. I use a full pack of whitening strips 2x a year and I use the mouthwash on a daily basis to maintain the results.
*I cannot stress how important it is to refrain from rinsing your mouth out with water afterwards!*
I noticed that my results from the …

Styling Products - Kinky Curly - Curling Custard Styling Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Game-changer for my transitioning curly hair. I went to a "curly-friendly" salon after deciding to embrace my natural curls which I've fought for so long with heat tools and a round of chemical straightening a year and a half ago. I walked into the salon with poofy + frizzy, undefined curls with a few strand exceptions of new growth that resemble 3b curls (just want to throw in …Read more

Scrubs - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

5.0

7 months ago

Multi-use product for me. Switched from St. Ives apricot scrub to this and have never looked back.
I've been through countless tubes. I gently exfoliate my face with this sugar scrub 3x a week in the shower to help rejuvenate my oily skin and slough away the dead skin. I end up with a very soft + smooth face, never dried out even when I was on accutane. The charcoal slightly heats up …
