Eyeliner - Glossier - Colorslide Technogel Eye Pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This review is for the eyeliner in the colour Brack.

I've been looking for a good pencil eyeliner that I can use to tight line my lashes without it smearing on my under eyes by the end of the day. As a person with extremely oily eyelids, I have to always powder my under eyes and can only use a few select tubing or waterproof mascaras. Everything ends up smudging at the end of the …

Blush - Stila - Gladiola Convertible Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I was hoping this would be a true orange blush (like the colour of the packaging) but it’s a bit pink on my neutral NC20 skin. When compared to Glossier’s Beam (which I bought before this), Gladiola is only slightly more orange. So now I have two cream blushes that are very similar in colour to each other, great.

Consistency wise, this is thicker and dewier compared to Glossier’s …

Lips - Glossier - Generation G

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

My rating is actually 3.5 lippies.

I purchased Cake and Zip after the recent reformulation and repackaging. I do not have any of the older Generation G’s to compare. For your reference I have had dry lips practically my whole life and they’re only presentable with a dedicated exfoliation and moisturization routine.

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting from these, but I’m not …

Highlighters - NYX Professional Makeup - Dose of Dew Face Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

This highlighter really lives up to its name. It is truly a face gloss in stick form. Dose of Dew never looks unnatural no matter how many times I layer it on, it just looks like a dewy, sweaty sheen (not metallic or ashy). The product is a translucent pinky champagne, it has a bit more pigmentation compared to Ciaté Dewy Stix (which is straight up clear and quite sticky) but the pigmentation is …Read more

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

5.0

I’ve been using this for over 2 months now, and it works quite well for me. It only helps to reduce sebum a little bit but it really does help with fading left over hyperpigmentation (which is my main concern).

After a face picking session triggered by stress (which is bad, I know), I wash my face and put this on. Usually, the places I picked will be red and inflamed the next morning …

Blush - CANMAKE - Cream Cheek

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I’ve never used a cream blush before so when I was in Tokyo I decided to buy one of these Cream Cheeks. They’re cheap and have good reviews, so why not?

I picked #16 Almond Terracotta because the other colours seemed too pastel or too bright to look flattering on my muted, neutral-olive NC20 skin. I was a bit hesitant at first because #16 looked so dark in the pan, but I bought it …

Lip Gloss - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - Fu$$y

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

My actual rating is 4.5 stars.

I have both Fenty Glow and Fu$$y, and I prefer Fu$$y a lot more. Fenty Glow is a bit too peachy-bronze for my liking, while Fu$$y is a cute “my lips but better” pink. For your reference, I have neutral-olive undertones and am NC20 in depth.

This colour is by no means special, but the formula is very impressive. Thick, cushiony, moisturizing …

Lip Gloss - Glossier - Clear Lip Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

This is a solid lip gloss. The formula is thick, moisturizing and fairly long lasting. I don’t need to dip into the tube twice to get a nice shine on my lips. It makes my lips look plump and full without being too sticky. I like the vanilla scent, although it is a bit too sweet. I personally don’t like the shape of the applicator, I’d like it better if it was a big doe foot like Fenty’s glosses …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipglass - Prrr

1.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

This colour looks really pretty in the tube but on my lips it’s an icy, milky pink that washes me out. The formula is thick, sticky, and hard to spread. The only positive would be the vanilla scent. I can only get this to look decent on me if I apply this very sparingly so the shimmer is more spread out and less icy looking. If I don’t exfoliate my lips before hand, this formula drags on my lips …Read more

Sunscreen - CANMAKE - Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50 / PA

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

After using this for over six months, I can confidently say this is my holy grail sunscreen (I've already bought two backup bottles). For your reference, I have combination, acne-prone skin. I've tried the highly recommended Biore Aqua Rich Watery Gel, which made me breakout and become so greasy after a few hours. Thinking that I might have a sensitivity towards chemical sunscreen, I …Read more
