Highlighters - wet n wild - MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I got this in a CVS gift with purchase, otherwise I’d never have tried it.
Highlighters don’t play well with my maturing yet somehow still oily skin. It’s not a look I can pull off easily.

Enter Hello Halo in Glided Glow:
I adore the glass bottle and applicator, very chic for the cost.
The shade is beautiful. A pale bronze/gold, and there seems to be plenty of product …

Primer/ Corrector - Charlotte Tilbury - Wonderglow

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I received a sample size of this along with a sample of Charlotte's Magic Cream (which I loved), and was eager to try this out.
I tried this multiple times, in all 3 suggested uses (under foundation, over foundation, and on it's own).
Not once did I notice any difference in the look of my skin. It certainly did nothing as a primer, and there was no glow whatsoever.
I applied …

Brows - Maybelline New York - TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen

1.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I love the concept of a brow pen with a micro blade effect, and couldn't wait for this to hit stores.
My excitement died down when I saw the reviews here, but i picked it up anyway, wanting to give it a try.

This is the worst brow product I've tried. (I bought 360 Medium Brown).
The 3 points at the tip quickly dry up, so to get the ink to flow, you have to press down …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Control Freak Brow Gel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I tried using this many times, but it did absolutely nothing. My brows are thin so I have to build them up with NYX micro brow, but the hairs always fall downward in the opposite direction of the pencil.
I needed something to keep the hairs in place; an this was no better then running a wet spoolie thru my brows. The tube and the wand are also ridiculously big for brow use.

Toners - Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Hibiscus Facial Toner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I found this on amazon, and the amazon ingredient list shows only beneficial, skin loving ingredients (arnica, calendula, cucumber, allantoin, hibiscus flower, witch hazel, honeysuckle, etc).
When it arrived, the ingredient list on the bottle was a different story: Excluding water, the 3rd ingredient is lemon peel oil, then orange peel oil, & lavender oil, all skin sensitizers and …

Lips - L'Oreal Paris - Glossy Balm (all colours)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

Out of a collection of glosses and lipsticks, this is the lip product I reach for again and again. And again.
It's quick, it's easy, and very wearable with any makeup look.
I have this in 200 Lovely Mocha - a beautiful pinky mauve, MLBB.
The pencil shape allows for more precise application, even when you're in a hurry.
And it's exactly what it says it is: …

Lips - REVLON - Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

The plumping claim pulled me in (even though I should know better). While these don't plump any more than your average gloss or liquid lip, I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up Barely Blush (MLBB) & Almond Suede (a brownish pink).
The color is opaque, but with a high shine. They're very glossy, but not at all sticky or heavy.
It has a lot of slip, almost too much (more …

Brows - REVLON - Colorstay Mousse

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2018

This is awful. I can usually get some use out of just about any brow product, which is why I snapped this one up.
Not only is this gloppy and an absolute mess to apply (I tried using a separate spoolie based on the review below, but even that doesn't help).

Twisting the base of the stick pushes the product out into a built in spoolie with plastic bristles. The problem: it …

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2018

I have this in soft brown; a very natural color (pale, dark blonde hair with highlights).
I don't get the applicator, a small spoolie would allow you to see what you're doing much better.
But if you scrape off excess product, this applies well and defines and plumps the brows well.
It tends to clump, but a fresh spoolie will solve that.

But by afternoon, the …

Primer/ Corrector - wet n wild - Photofocus Natural Finish Setting Spray

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2018

I was so excited to try this after reading the reviews here.
I only have two setting sprays to compare to: e.l.f. and NYX (dewy finish). To be honest, I've never noticed either spray help my makeup stay on any longer than without it, but I like to think that it softens the look of my makeup and helps my skin look moisturized.
I wonder if they changed the formula for this spray …
