Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

I really like this moisturizer! Does it necessarily clear up blemishes? not for me, but as far as oil free moisturizers go it's really nice on my combo/oily skin. it's not borderline too thick for me like simple hydrating light was, and it actually moisturizes, unlike the simple oil free one. Not a miracle acne-clearing product, but I'd recommend it to anyone with oily skin.

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

This mascara is good for my long but not-voluminous lashes. It works better than Covergirl lash blast for me, and i get decent length and thickness out of it. My only gripe is that like most mascaras, it has a tendency to get a bit clumpy looking. The color is definitely dark and black, which is another plus. Overall, it's one of the better mascaras I've tried.

I really like this- it works better than the healthy mix serum for me, and i really like that. Regular healthy mix gives a thicker coverage than the serum, and on me it's medium coverage, which is nice. The color 51 is nice for my pale-ish yellow toned skin, but if you're really pale bourjois foundations don't cater for you. I have an oily t zone, and if i set this with powder …Read more

My nose gets really oily during the day, and this doesn't do the best job at keeping it matte. It claims to last five hours, which it stands by for the rest of my face. 5 hours after applying this my nose looks like an oil slick. I wasn't expecting much out of this, but overall I think it does the job pretty well, as my t-zone does get really oily and I've never found a product to …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - False Lash Effect

This mascara works best if I apply a coat, let it dry, then apply another and repeat again. If I don't let it dry in between coats it clumps my lashes together...it's pretty unattractive. However, once I do the above process it works nicely for me: i get decent length and some thickness. My lashes are sort of medium/long length and pretty fine, so if you have similar lashes to me I …Read more

PROS:
1) Everybody has said this already but the smell is gorgeous, really fruity and not like paint at all, which is great considering that most DS foundations smell like crap.
2) Color match. I've got pale, yellow toned skin and this matches well. It may be the tiniest bit too dark/yellow for my NC15/20 skin but shade 51 is a really fantastic match. However the color range …

Moisturizers - Simple - Clear Skin Oil Balancing Moisturizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2012

it's ok i guess. I agree with others, it's just not moisturizing enough. I have combo/oily skin that gets dry after i use my cleanser, so i do like to use a moisturizer. To get the best effect out of this i use a TON of this! Even then I don't think my skin is moisturized enough. To put how much I use in perspective: I've had this for roughly a month and I'm halfway done …Read more

Lip Gloss - Topshop - Sorbet

Love this, such a staple. The formula is really nice- not sticky but it does't feel like oil on your lips either. Although the color looks bright in the tube, it sheers out on your lips and is such a perfect warm fuschia pink. I like the glitter too-- it's not too much, too gritty, and it doesn't appear to look "over the top." It's pigmented and it actually adds …Read more

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Beam Liquid Highlighter

Jan/07/2012

I got this as a sample size with a magazine, so luckily i didn't waste any money buying this full-size. I think this is such an overrated highlighter. Using too much of it makes me look really oily, which it shouldn't do, considering that I'm only oily on my nose and chin. This comes out as a pink color, but when blended out it just looks like shimmer on your face. It only works …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in True Love

Nov/29/2011

True Love is such a beautiful color. I love the way it looks on my skin, and the lasting power is pretty good as well, and I have oily skin. However, I really wish that this wasn't so sticky :( It leaves a tacky residue on my face, no matter how much I blend. Speaking of blending, it's difficult to do. You need to blend quickly, but the effect it gives after you put it on looks so nice …Read more
