Sunscreen - Drunk Elephant - Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30

I'm trying a sample and so far I like this. I was specifically looking for an everyday mineral based sunscreen without silicone for my sensitive, acne-prone skin and this was recommended to me. Yes the texture feels thick and suncreen-y when applying, but it sinks in fast and I totally forget about it after a minute. My skin felt nice all day, didn't get oily, and my makeup looked good …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Loved the idea of this product and brand but like another couple reviewers this gave me weird painful cystic breakouts like I've never had before that took forever to heal. Once I stopped using this my skin went back to normal. I'll take the odd zit over this. Pretty disappointed. Try cautiously!
EDIT - it was actually the Ordinary cleanser that broke me out. This is fine. Other …

Concealers - COVER FX - Power Play Concealer

I bought this to compare with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I love but is so expensive. This one is pretty nice too. I apply it as a spot treatment for acne/scars and don't want to apply it all over my face so I appreciate that this has a big shade selection, is very blendable and easy to apply, and has a very natural finish. Only complaint is that it could wear a little longer - Nars …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

I always stayed away from MAC foundations because I heard they are not great for your skin, and I am terribly acne-prone, but Studio Fix does not make me break out. It is wonderful at oil control and lasts all day. It has good, buildable coverage. The only negative is it can look a little dry and cakey if you apply too much. As always, don't use the sponge it comes with - I like a big fluffy …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection

Lip Perfection is an awesome line of lipstick, and really impressive for a drug store brand. I got Flame and Hot Passion - great bright red shades with a matte finish. Very retro. What I like about these lipsticks is that they have such great pigment and stain so the colour lasts (really lasts... you need makeup remover to take it off). I like to gently tap it on my lips or blot for a stained …Read more

Cleansers - Aveeno - Smart Essentials Pore Purifying Facial Wash

Hurray, a cleanser that does what it claims! I have acne prone skin but this does not break me out. It doesn't dry my skin out but doesn't leave any residue either. It removes makeup pretty well, but not all water-proof stuff. I've been using for about a week and my skin looks fantastic. Better than cetaphil and spectrojel in my opinion.

Eye Shadow - benefit Cosmetics - Velvet Eyeshadow- Bikini Line

This is a lovely eyeshadow - sure it's a pretty basic highlighting shade, but I like it better than any other eyeshadows I have. The colour is a light, butter yellow-gold that works as a highlighter but still reads as golden. The texture and finish are beautiful - soft and shimmery without being glittery. I have similar eyeshadows but this one seems to have more dimension, so I would buy it …Read more

This blush is great. When swept together, the four colours make a lovely peachy pink colour with a subtle shimmer effect - a perfect blush and highlighter in one. And unlike Dandelion, this actually shows up as colour on my skin!
