The only thing I like about this is the sun protection. It has a weird taste and smell, is tinted light brown, and is not particularly moisturizing. Definitely not for someone with dry peely lips, because this will accentuate the dryness and make you look like your lips are dirty/gunky.

Blush - CLINIQUE - Cola Pop Cheek Pop

Aug/18/2016

It's been a while since my last review, but my love for this blush inspired me to get back on here. This was literally love at first swipe and has been my favorite blush since. My previous love was Tarte Exposed, but after a while I noticed it just wasn't enough. I wanted something more pigmented, with longer wear time, and a natural (less powdery) finish. Cola Pop checked fulfilled …Read more

I like this, but I'm not sure if I love it. The texture goes on very creamy and pigmented, but it can blend out a bit patchy. The color is a warm brown with subtle shimmer that can be too red for some people. I use this the most for a natural day-time look by lightly lining my eyes with this along with a cool grey liner then blending/smoking it out for a very diffused liner look. With …Read more

I have very oily but dry&flaky acne-prone skin, and this did not work for me. I like the light texture and subtle fresh scent of this gel, but it just does not provide enough moisture for me and if the weather is dry, my face ends up getting super flaky. I also did not find that it soothed or helped any irritated areas. I hate and avoid tub packaging, but decided to try this anyway due to …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - America

Mar/07/2016

This is a gorgeous bright red with a lovely formula. It is super opaque w/o looking too creamy/flat (like Revlon Red if that makes sense), and I can get away with just one coat if I am careful. Lasting power is good and typical of Zoya polishes. The color can look a little pink-toned in certain lighting and then a little orange-toned in other lighting, so I can't quite decide if it is …Read more

Mar/07/2016

I was super excited to get this on sale a while back and finally got around to using it. I absolutely LOVE this palette (although I am partial to anything Quinton Tarantino related). The colors and almost matte textures work so well together for the perfect neutral smokey eye. The shadows are great UD quality: smooth, blendable, and long-wearing (even the matte ones on my greasy Asian hooded …Read more

I started using this for a trip to Hawaii last year and I'm about to start my second tube. I don't usually wear makeup, so when I want some light coverage for a natural daytime look this has been my go to. It has very very sheer coverage that does not cover imperfections, but just helps to even out my skin tone. Even my boyfriend has used it before and no one detected anything on his …Read more

Jun/03/2015

I absolutely LOVE and highly recommend this baby! I have very fine straight Asian hair that refuses to hold a curl and I am totally incompetent with regular curling irons. I bought the 1/2-1", and it has been a godsend. All I do is spray on some heat protectant, brush, and curl away. I am still a bit clumsy with It, and it takes me about 15 mins (hair is currently medium length) to do my …Read more

Jul/18/2014

OHMYGOODNESS! I have fairly conservative taste in np, so I am surprised w/ how much I love this. I was curious to try a Pixie Dust polish during a Zoya sale, and decided on Godiva as it looked like the safest choice. It is a nude crelly w/ fine silver glitter and it looks like diamond dust on the nails to me...so beautiful and unique while still being classy and understated. Due to the color …Read more

Blush - bareMinerals - Blush - Laughter

Feb/03/2014

I think this was the first blush I ever bought when I was getting into makeup. I bought it b/c my skin is extremely acne-prone and at the time I was convinced Bare Minerals was the only makeup okay for sensitive acne-prone skin. Also, at the time, the blush I always heard about was NARS Orgasm, so I went looking for a BM dupe. I forgot what the dupe was supposed to be, but it was sold out at …Read more
