This is actually a review of the L'oreal Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer, which I think is the Asian name/packaging of the Studio Secrets one.

I really wanted to like this. It looked amazing on most people who reviewed it. But, unfortunately it made me break out. :/

At first I didn't think it was this, but I just used it last week and was left with a …

I love how Maybelline's mascaras are always packaged with such bright colors!

I think this is a pretty decent mascara too. Once in a while, it smudges on me, but it looks amazing the rest of the time. One thing to mention is that it refuses to hold a curl, which really disappointed me since I have stick straight Asian lashes.

I do wish it had a pump, but …Read more

I received a sample of this in my October Birchbox. I'm almost out of it, sadly. I really, really like this primer. I received it in Bronze, but it looks fine on light/medium skin. If I had to guess, I'd say I'm around NC25 in Mac. I absolutely love the consistency of it. I've tried a couple other primers (Benefit, L'Oreal, VS, etc.) and they all had the silicone-y feel …Read more

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care SPF 15

Not the best, but not the worst.

I like how it feels on my lips, but I hate how it wears off so quickly. It feels really smooth-- hence the name, "A Kiss of Smoothness"--but like a couple other reviewers said, it feels like it just sits on top of your lips. If it was on sale, then I'd buy it again, but other than that.. no. I think I'll try other chapsticks/lip …
