Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2017

This has got to be the worst high end eye shadow palette I've bought to date!
Even my low end, drugstore eye shadows from WnW rival this crappy palette.
Some of you may remember the awful negativity surrounding the Subculture palette and how much kick up was made by barely tapping your brush into that palette and how there was a quality control issue and how some stores were …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Rosehip Seed Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2017

I feel bummed that I'm in the minority that this oil doesn't work for me. I tried 2 different brands in order to give Rosehip Seed oil a fair chance on my skin, with the second brand called Life-Flo which I got from a local health food store, being the worst offender of the two.
The first bottle was a gift sent to me by my sister and it came straight from Israel and had a …

Highlighters - ColourPop - Super Shock Highlighter (All Colors)

5.0

Oct/31/2016

I have several of these highlighters and I love them. Are they BAM! In your face? Nope but I'm not into that kind of look, I'm seeking a natural look with highlighting, which is what highlighting is suppose to be about, naturally mimicking where light would naturally hit the high points of your face. Not some disco ball looking highlight on your face.
My favourite one so far is …

Liquid - Hard Candy - Glamoflauge Mix-in Pigment Makeup Drops

3.0

Oct/31/2016

These are ok. At first I liked them but then I realised that imo they don't really add very much coverage to a foundation at all, maybe a smidgen more but really not much to the point that I'd go out of my way search for these again.
Nor do they lighten foundation either, especially if you're a very pale person like me
If you're looking for a colour match for very …

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2016

I can't believe I used this product for nearly 3 years before realising this was most likely the culprit for my closed comedones, occasional breakouts, excessively oily skin and a 24/7 red face (this did not burn nor was my skin irritated, it was just very bright red all the time).
I only realised this after I started using a sheet mask lotion as my daily moisturiser because of how …

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - Pro Beauty Blender (Black)

I can't believe I gave into the hype of this sponge not once but twice. And it's totally worth it.
I scoffed at the price. $20 for a sponge? No, I won't pay that, I told myself. But paid that I did just to see what the hype was about and I fell in love with it.
Unfortunately my cat also fell in love with it too and mauled my first one before I even got to use it, but I …

Hair Treatments - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Hydrating Mask

Dec/01/2015

I wanted to love this stuff but it was so drying to my hair and seems useless. I got this at Sally Beauty on sale, a buy 2 get 1 free deal. I loved the smell but then after the smell started to dissipate, it took on a plastic smell which is odd because the other 2 products in this same line do not fade away to a plastic smell (I got the curl cream and the conditioner in this same line and these …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2015

This stuff is horrible. It's as if I blended chalk powder and water together and put it on my face. I'm giving it 2 lippies for the great shade selection that is offered in the Fit Me line but that is where the pros stop with this foundation.
Within 2 hours my face had melted into a pool of oily mess with this foundation, the foundation itself is a super watery formula so a pump …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2015

I normally really love Maybelline mascaras but this stuff sucks so imagine my confusion reading all these positive reviews on here. I bought the waterproof version in Blackest Black and I bought it against my better judgement cause I absolutely loathe rubber brushes; I'm a traditional brush type of masacara snob and turn up my nose up at any mascara that has a rubber brush but still, I …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Cake Powder - Auburn/Red

Aug/21/2015

If you are a natural redhead (or dyed) then you need this product to add to your makeup routine.
I picked this up after watching a You Tube video that a natural redheaded girl had posted strictly on her brow routine cause she had many viewers ask her about how she did her brows, etc. And she had stated she used this on her brows and actually showed how she used this and swatches of the 2 …
