Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

2.0

Mar/10/2018

I couldn't get this to work, at all. Thought it would go on smoothly like a serum, and remain that way. Unfortunately, just an hour after applying, my jag skin felt prickly as if covered in sand. Not at all comfortable, and certainly not a good look.

I've tried applying with a blender, a brush, a cheap spongey thing and fingers. I guesse using my hands was what worked best, but …

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

Bought a pack with three small sizes of the lighter shades. One made me orange, one brown and one was the right shade but the undertone made me grey. I looked dead for a few days until I figured it out.

Also gave me two spots. I've had under ten spots in my entire life (am now 35),so that's quite the accomplishment. Went back to my regular brand, this is in the bin.

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Daniel Sandler watercolour brush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2017

I see other reviewers love this brush, so it could be down to technique - but I much prefer using fingertips for the watercolour blushers. I could have given it a miss as I don't actually use it.

Might youtube it to see if I can figure out how to use it and not get a streaky look. For me it was too firm to smush the watercolour into my skin and only where I want it to be …

Blush - Unlisted Brand - Daniel Sandler Watercolour fluid blusher in Spicy

Feb/12/2017

I go back and forth with blushers, as I do with foundation. I'm currently using a liquid foundation/bb-cream (bourjois+beauty flash), and have found that cream or liquid blushers work best with that. I ordered this colour and "passion" from cult beauty, as I have never seen them here.

It has become an everyday must for me, either on its own or with the other tone. I do …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2016

I ordered this just to see what everyone was going on about. Nars is not available in my country, so I bought mine from asos. Nars was available at supermarkets here around 10 or so years ago. Compared to most blushers available here, the price point is average, not much more than current super market brands.

I'm more of a cream blusher person, but I got the powder because …

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Lip Primer & Plumper

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/16/2016

As most people on this site are aware, this is a budget brand to say the least. The products are hit and miss, and I personally have had more luck with the loose powders and mineral shadows than anything else. Because it is so cheap, it's easy to justify impulse purchasing at their display.

This was one of those. I tried using the primer with lipstick, but it only makes the colour …

Lip Gloss - CLARINS - Instant Light Lip Perfector

4.0

Dec/16/2016

I used to be more than a little in love with these, especially the darker ones. I definitely don't like nude type colours on lips, and I also don't like the colour of my natural lips, but the redder shades have been brilliant. Kind of like a mlbb thing. On holiday I used it to bed as well, and it definitely works as well.

The plum one was the best one they ever put out, if I …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Hurraw Balm

I like the shape of the tube, and try to keep the top surface of the actual balm perfectly flat. I don't know why, but it makes me like using it more.

On to the product, I do think it is too highly scented, which is saying quite a lot coming from me. I typically LOVE anything scented, and the names of the balms are what made me buy it.
The balm doesn't do much for me, but …

Fragrances - Stella McCartney - Stella Rose Absolute

Was commenting on the standard stella, and saw this in the search results (was really looking for reviews of the newest one by McCartney, bought it blind). I have to immediately order another bottle of this and bathe in it. Absolutely perfect scent, only wish more people used it, so I can smell it more often :-)

Fragrances - Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum

My go to, has been a beloved piece of my life since it came out 10-ish years ago. Will keep using it until it is discontinued (let's hope that never happens). Nowadays I work in a school and can't wear perfume during the day, but I wear a scent to bed every night. I alternate between this and the edp narcisso.
