Pressed Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Pressed Powder

28 days ago

Nars pressed powder is really underrated. I know powders don't get a good rap these days, but if you find a really good powder like Nars, it can make all the difference to your makeup. Most people use any el cheapo powder to set makeup (ie Rimmel Stay matte etc) but the problem is that the poor shade range makes me look really ashy and settles in my lines n pores. This pressed powder is …Read more

I'm reviewing the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti Moisturizing Cream without SPF. There's 5 versions of the Hydra Zen line which can be really confusing. Not all versions are sold in every country, but I'm lucky in Australia we get all 5 flavours to buy.

There's the Hydra Zen Gel cream, Hydra Zen SPF 15, Hydra Zen Night cream, Hydra Zen Rich cream and the Hydra Zen Anti …

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Iconic Extreme (Waterproof)

I hated this mascara, the Diorshow Iconic OVERCURL WATERPROOF is heaps better than this mascara. The formula of this mascara is really wet and does not hold a curl at all. If you try building it up it will clump together. It also took forever to dry because it was so wet. You curled your lashed really well and applied the first coat and it already has flopped down. Even after 5 minutes when the …Read more

This is not a dupe for MAC Studio Fix Powder. It's a sheer setting powder that mattifies and sets your foundation. It does add a bit of coverage but nothing as full coverage like MAC. I would say this powder is really similar to MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder (which has now been discontinued). Nevertheless this is a great setting powder for your foundation. Both oily or dry skin can use …Read more

This is my favorite bb cream. It actually gives a decent light coverage, it won't cover up like a foundation but will even out your skin tone. This formula is similar to studio sculpt foundation but not as thick and is easier to blend. I use either my hands or as buffing brush to apply it. If you lightly set with powder it will last all day. I haven't tried many Korean BB creams but …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Grandiose EXTREME mascara

Jun/26/2018

Did nothing for my Asian lashes. It's a thick, wet and creamy formula. Very very inky black. Couldn't hold a curl at all because of the wet thick formula. As soon as you try to apply a second coat it clumps very bad and turns your lashes into literally spider lashes. I put off buying the grandiose extreme version for a long time because it wasn't a waterproof formula and I knew …Read more

I'm reviewing the waterproof version. I never bothered with the regular version because I knew it wouldn't work on my Asian lashes. Anyway the waterproof formula is really thick and creamy and dry. Strange because the testers for the waterproof mascara in store was really wet and when I opened mine it was really dry. It does add good volume if you build it up and holds up my curl. What …Read more

This is one of Lisa Eldridge's favourite mascaras. She has used it a lot in her videos and I totally understand why. It really does everything- length, volume, curl, separation, waterproof. The tapered brush really allows you to coat every lash. I've learned how to use it properly because sometimes it does get clumpy if you aren't careful. One side of the brush contains more …Read more

For my sparse Asia lashes, this mascara didn't do much. The formula is really wet. My curl drooped immediately despite curling it beforehand. It also gets really clumpy when you try to build it up because the wet formula trmds to stick all the lashes together. I would say this would work if you have long fluffy lashes but for sparse Asian lashes, a no. The plus side though is that it's …Read more

I have this in dark brown 404 which is a nice ashy dark brown, no red which is good. I like the formula and color but I don't like the applicator. It has an attached brow mascara head with a twist on the bottom, kinda similar to the Lancôme Grandiose wand. Problem is it just doesn't work on the brows, gets messy too quickly. I have to twist the product out then use a separate spoolie to …Read more
