Eye Makeup Remover - Unlisted Brand - 3INA - The Micellar Gel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

The concept of a micellar gel really appealed to me but this product is garbage. It's incredibly sticky so you need a lot to remove makeup from your whole face. And its actual makeup removing abilities barely exist. Literally every other makeup remover I've used has functioned better than this as this hardly does the bare minimum.

Primer/ Corrector - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination

3.0

I like the hygienic packaging, and the formula is great for the most part. I enjoy that you truly need only a tiny amount to actually properly conceal your under eye area as it is sooo pigmented. It can be tough to spread but that is overcome by letting it warm up on your finger first. Downside would be the rather limited colour range. With regards to colour range, other concealers I've …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I have no idea how this product has such a cult following. It is GARBAGE. It was nice for maybe the first few applications but (and maybe I simply have a bad product) now it’s a watery mess. I can’t even describe what this eyeliner does that’s so terrible because I’ve never encountered it in an eyeliner before. You know when you use a permanent marker on a whiteboard by mistake and you can trace …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30 in Silicone

I am on the fence about whether I'll buy this again in the future. I love that the sillicone formula and packaging keeps the precious vitamin C stable, and yes, it stings like a motherf****** right after applying but that subsides quickly enough where it's not unbearable. I went through a period of not using ascorbic acid based products, only other Deciem vitamin C derivatives like the …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Hydrating Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2018

This is a great, affordable cleansing oil option that's easily available in Australia for those unable or unwilling to order in Asian cleansing oils. It uses plain, innocuous grapeseed oil and includes retinyl palmitate and vitamin E. Not that the latter 2 vitamins will really be of benefit in a makeup remover, but I won't complain about their existence. It has a thicker consistency …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster

Dec/17/2017

Perhaps dedicated hyaluronic acid serums simply aren't my thing but I felt underwhelmed by this. Compared to The Ordinary's HA 2% + B5, this is the superior product. Glides easier than The Ordinary's, less sticky. The packaging is also pretty pleasing to the eye. But still, I found this product overpriced and not as cosmetically elegant as it could be. While more pleasant to use …Read more

Mascara - Australis - Bae Watch Mascara

A really underwhelming mascara. All it really did for me was darken my lashes and did very little in the way of curling or lengthening, even after multiple coats. The search for a good affordable and cruelty free mascara continues.

Concealers - Kat Von D - Lock-It Concealer Creme

Oct/28/2017

I'm attempting to phase out beauty products that are tested on animals from my arsenal and unfortunately, my long time holy grail Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard no longer fits the bill since Nars started selling in China. This is a more than worthy replacement. I use the shade Light 15 Neutral and this covers my dark circles beautifully, arguably better than the Nars did. Overall …Read more

Wish I could give half ratings because this is a 2.5 to me.
I'm really not sure what to think of this product, or even what this product really is. I purchased it due to the positive reviews on various blogs and forums and thought this would be a great 'lazy' item due to its claims of being a "Lotion, Milk, Cream, Serum and Mask in one product", according to the …

Tinted Moisturizer - NARS Cosmetics - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I have really mixed feelings about this product.
I don't use MAC foundations but I'm guessing I'm a NC20-NC25, so basically I have a yellowy-medium Asian skin tone. I use the Nars tinted moisturiser in Alaska/Light 2 because it's a surprisingly better match for my skin than the darker shades. While the Nars tinted moisturisers don't come in as wide a range of shades …
