Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - Whipped Caviar

2 months ago

This lipstick is my go to everyday lipstick and goes on a natural, slightly dusty/mauve pink on my light yellow toned, asian skin (NC20). It is quite a good dupe for MAC's Mehr on me, with NYX Whipped Caviar being slightly lighter and less matte I would say.

The staying power is decent and it goes on smooth, with any fade mainly on the inner part of the lips, which is usual for …

This was my first ELF item and i am impressed! I didn't think it would be that good as it was fairly cheap, but the eyeshadows are of good quality, are very blendable and the colours are very complementary. As the title suggests, they are very sparkly so i wouldn't recommend to glitter/sparkle haters, but i would have no problem with wearing some of these colours in the daytime as well …Read more

I have used this in a red shade (can't remember it's name) and also the Wild Lights version to put red/purple hightlights in my hair.

I really like it - it lasts longer than other dyes i have used, the colour stays fairly true for about 4 weeks which, for a red dye, isn't bad at all. The colour doesn't keep washing out either and it leaves little mess in my …

I love this dye - I usually use the highlights version to put streaks in my hair but sometimes use this as it does the same job really.

If you have black hair like myself, it is impossible to find a dye that goes on BRIGHT without having to bleach my hair first. So this is great - 50 mins or so later, i have bright red or purple streaks! There is still colour coming out during washes …

I love this! It is the perfect ruby red for me. I tried Ruby Pumps but it just went so pink... Although it doesn't have the glitter of Ruby Pumps, Red Pearl makes up for this by being a beautiful, rich and sophisticated shade. Lasting power is excellent too.

I can't fault the staying power or quality of this nail polish, however for some reason, it just turns pink on me.

Everyone seems to make it looks like a lovely rich red, but when i wear it, it is too pink, especially only after one coat. It is improved when i put the second coat on, but i much prefer Red Pearl, which is instantly ruby red without too much pinkness.

Eyeliner - Barry M - Intense Eyeliner Pen

This has became my favourite eyeliner, beating the few high end ones i have used. It is extremely long lasting, most of it is still on at the end of the day and it is definitely an intense black. It goes on easily and leaves a great line, mimicking liquid liner, so this is great for anyone who likes the luquid liner look but cannot use brushes.

I love both the normal Coca Cola one and the Cherry Cola one, but i think Cherry Cola is the best due to the nice red tint it gives your lips. Both are great at stopping lips getting dry and smell delicious to boot. I reccomend them!

I have this in Carbon Black and it goes on really black and stays on for at least 4-5 hours before you have to reapply a bit. Even then, most the colour is still there after this time, which is impressive as i have greasy eyelids and eyeliners that claim to be long-wearing never are on me.

I prefer this to the highly rated Velvet Touch eyeliners, which are supposed to be waterproof but …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - black russian

I love this eyeliner - it's not the most long wearing, but i don't think it claim to be and still holds up pretty well compared to other apparently 'waterproof' eyeliners i have used in the past. Considering most eyeliners never want to stay on my greasy eyelids, this doesn't do too badly at all in terms of lasting power.


It's a very smudgey black …
