Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

i try to buy my makeup from brands that don't sell in china or test on animals, so the range of accessible mascaras available to me can feel quite limited. i've tried mascaras from elf, jordana, too faced, nyx, and essence, and the only ones to impress me were the jordana and the TF (BTS). the jordana was too wet and smeary, although the immediate post-application effect was nice, and i …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

28 days ago

I have used this primer a handful of times since getting it in the mail, and I'm pretty sure it breaks me out. I don't know if it's a particular ingredient or simply the fact that my skin doesn't like to have too many products on it at one time (powdering too heavily can cause me to break out as well), but I break out when I use this and my skin calms down when I …Read more

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Golden Rose - Velvet Matte Lipstick

i bought a mini set of these + have fallen in love, just ordered 2 full-sized shades online yesterday and eagerly await their arrival. the formula reminds me a lot of the milani matte lipsticks in the gold packaging - they have a matte finish, but they maintain a slip-y feeling on the lips and are very comfortable to wear throughout the day. i notice they still settle into lip lines which is …Read more

i love this color so much! on my skin it pulls a warm reddish/pinkish brown. i find it very similar to my favorite lipstick, NYX's butter lipstick in "root beer float/pops," chai is just a bit deeper and has a little more brown to it. i would desperately like to find a ds dupe for this color, but if i can't find one i might spring for the full size once i run out of the mini …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%

3.0

6 months ago

i've been using this product consistently for about 2 months now, and my thoughts have changed somewhat since my last review. i no longer find it to be oil-controlling really at all, but i will say - my skin looks great. i am not sure whether this is responsible for the current quality of my skin, or if it's due moreso to my consistent use of Pixi's Glow Tonic, but either way, i …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

2.0

6 months ago

the shade range is just about the only thing this foundation has going for it, and it's the only reason i gave this foundation 2 lippies instead of 1. it's not buildable, so it's hard to spot conceal as new product just picks up what's already been put down. the coverage is a solid medium but if you have any spots or scarring whatsoever you really won't be able to build …Read more

i absolutely LOVE this sunscreen. i apply 1/4 teaspoon of it to my face each time i do my makeup, and do not find it to have a greasy residue, nor does it have any sort of white cast on my skin. it is also a bit shimmery and looks absolutely beautiful under my foundation; my skin truly looks a million times nicer with this on. additionally, i am somewhat acne-prone and occlusive products (even …Read more

this is a really great mascara, i actually bought it kind of on a whim during a trip overseas. remembered hearing good things about it but never looked into this mascara specifically myself. and i was really impressed! the tube i bought 5 months ago is still working very well and it almost looks like i'm wearing very natural falsies when i use this product. doesn't flake, doesn't …Read more

Palettes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Face Palette

3.0

i LOVE the packaging for this, and wish elf sold makeup pans individually to fit into these palettes, as the ranges of most face palettes they release i feel are suited to multiple different skin depths, making them a risky buy for any one person. i have more info on my undertones in my profile, but to start i am about NC10~13, and don't really love this palette.

the highlighter …

Foundations - Catrice - HD Liquid Coverage Foundation

4.0

12 months ago

this is one of my favorite foundations that i've tried in terms of finish and coverage - it can look a bit dry just after applying, but i'm pretty oily so it fortunately becomes more skinlike within a relatively short period of time for me. it mixes really well with all the other foundations i've tried it with (all silicone-based) + i've also mixed it with various serums and …Read more
