Primer/ Corrector - MILANI - Prime Shield Face Primer Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing

This primer really does live up to its name! My pores are large mainly due to my skin being oily. This works a whole lot better than Benefit’s porefessional primer which I received a sample of. It blurs them out when I cover them and it prevents that unflattering, appearance of cakey large pores. It mattifies the most oily areas of my face which are my forehead, t-zone and my nose. I’ll advise …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

5.0

Mar/06/2018

I live in a very hot, humid climate which tends to make my makeup very oily if I do not use some sort of a setting spray to set my face. I use it as a primer to prime my face before my foundation and I also set my face again once I’m done with my makeup. Ever since I tried this trick, my foundation doesn’t have a streaky or oily look to it. My face stays fresh all day with only a hint of oil on …Read more

Loose Powders - Black Opal - Deluxe Finishing Powder

I used to use the Black Radiance Mineral Foundation as a setting powder, but it would always become oily by the end of the day which I just couldn’t stand. I didn’t even bother spending my money on the Ben Nye Banana Powder because it’s expensive and I didn’t wanna rock that chalky, ashy highlighted look under my eyes. I bought this powder in the shades Dark and Deep just to test out. The Deep …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof

Oct/11/2017

I'm glad to have found a makeup remover that doesn't burn my skin and leave it itchy. I've tried so many makeup wipes from Koh Gen Do to Burt's Bees and other brands, but none of them have surpassed this micellar water. I love how it easily removes my makeup with no tugging or extra wipes. It does leave a slight oily residue but I wash off my face after the removal process so …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/12/2017

I have really been sleeping on this mascara for the longest. I thought this mascara had the same smelly formula as the original colossal mascara from Maybelline. Boy was I wrong. Just after one coat, my lashes did have a natural voluminous look. After curling my lashes and applying just 3 coats, my lashes looked very dramatic and luscious. It does NOT have a wet sticky formula like most of the …Read more

Liquid - Mary Kay - Time Wise Matte Wear Liquid Foundation

This foundation does provide a full coverage look to the skin. It blends wonderfully and its the perfect match for my skin tone. However, it is not a photo friendly product. I end up looking like Lord Voldemort from the insane amount of flashback I get while taking pictures. I wouldn't recommend photographing pictures with this product.

Palettes - BH Cosmetics - Carli Bybel Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette

Mar/07/2017

The packaging to this palette is stunning! I love the color scheme which makes it look minimal with a bit of elegance. The pink penguin was a pretty adorable symbol from Carli. The "aspire to inspire" quote gives me a daily positive reminder to inspire myself and those who are around me in my life. The neutral metallic eyeshadows and the highlighters are so beautiful and they're …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

Mar/04/2017

I received this mascara from my Ipsy bag. The name is pretty catchy and I love the luminosity of the matte, light pink packaging. I really wanted to like this mascara but it leaves a messy black residue and the brush scrapes my sensitive eyelids. It takes awhile to dry which I do not have the time to sit and wait for. I feel like this is an overhyped mascara like Maybelline's Great Lash …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Summer's Eve - Feminine Cleansing Cloths

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2017

I thought baby wipes got the job done but sometimes they leave too much of a wet drippy feeling. I purchased the Summer's Eve wipes in Sheer Floral and I adore the scent. It's a mild floral smell and doesn't smell way too strong. I wear tights and tight jeans a lot and the sweat can be unbearable at times during the hot humid months. I use these to freshen up during my period or …Read more
