Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Shine Killer

I’m genuinely surprised to see such negative reviews of this! I personally really like it.
It’s a standard clear silicone primer that makes your skin feel really smooth. I find foundation applies really nicely over it.
As far as extending make up wear time, I do notice a difference when I use this versus no primer. It allows my make up to wear evenly, as opposed to no primer where my …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

This is a really lovely foundation.
I was hesitant to try at first as i had never had luck with Maybelline foundations.
This however has really nice coverage (I use a damp beauty blender) that wears evenly and well through the day (survived a busy 35 degree celsius work day today). I pair it with the NYX Shine Killer primer.
It offers medium coverage and is buildable if you …

Powder - RIMMEL - London Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder

5.0

Oct/05/2017

I was a fan of the Rimmel stay Matte powder for a long time, this is the new and improved version. It’s a white translucent powder that doesn’t give a flashback when photographed. It sets make up for a full work day. I would only recommend if you’re oily skinned- I think anyone with normal or dry skin will have dryers accentuated with this product.
The packaging is better than the old stay …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

I’m a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras, I feel they’re a reliable product no matter which one you pick up.
This is my new favourite, it adds length and volume without clumping, smudging or feeling crusty. It’s easy to apply and remove. It’s a dryer formula which is my preference, and the brush is a fluffier brush.
Do check it out, it’s an affordable option if you’re in the market for a …

Polishes - Essie - Gel Couture Color (All Colors)

Oh my god. Holiest of grails.
These retail for $16.95 I’m Australia, and have only just launched within the past month (despite a summer 2016 release for America).
I picked up 2 colours, Make The Cut (nude grey beige) and Couture Curator (soft peachy pink) with the matching top coat, honestly not expecting a lot having tried many other “UV-less Gel polishes” like:

Revlon Gel …

I have quite oily skin, and I do really like this powder. You don't need a lot of it to set your face. Wouldn't recommend if you have normal or dry skin. The flashback though... do not use if you plan to take flash photographs. I use this for long work days when I can forget to touch up, and if gets me through. The packaging could be improved, be careful using it, as it can get messy …Read more

Foundations - Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2017

I fell for the YouTube hype. I think a lot of the bloggers who think this is the holy grail of cheap foundations were paid to do so. Like other reviewers on here, the damn stuff never sets, even with powder and setting spray. You can see it sitting on the skin, and as someone with combo skin, it looked awful on both the oily and dry parts of my face, making each area look worse than it is. I …Read more

May/07/2017

Full disclosure, I bought this on a whim because Kristen Bell was the spokesman for it. I'm glad I did though- this stuff is amazing. Instead of using wipes and excessive make up pads, then cleansing, this product does the lot. Pump 2 pumps and rub the product over your face (it's fine on my eyes, but be careful if you're sensitive ) then wet your hands to lather it up, get a wet …Read more
