Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

I hated this. It is so drying, and dried down on my undereyes weirdly to some uncomfortable texture that kept crumbling off and separating. The coverage is poor and I would have to do several layers for any sufficient covering of my dark eye circles which I have never had to do with any other concealer (and I own about over 15). The only good thing about it is it’s sponge applicator which is very …Read more

Jul/28/2018

For the life of me I cannot understand the great reviews this eyeliner has. I actually bought this product because of the reviews on here. It bleeds too much, smudges, is too runny etc. I kept giving it numerous chances since I did not want to believe that this so called magical product did not live up to it's praise. It is one of the worst eyeliners I have used. A shame because I wanted to …Read more

For the price I paid I expected better from this primer. Whenever I used it it made my makeup look bad. It makes my foundation look too powdery and did not leave a nice finish like other primers. It’s too mattifying, I’m oily skinned but never had a primer leave me looking so cake faced or doused in flour. It’s a no from me.

I am a dark skinned black girl so finding a foundation match is not the easiest of feats. I have tried numerous foundations (I am an obsessive makeup junkie - it is actually a sickness) and this is the BEST colour match I have ever found for my skin. This foundation goes on my skin like silk, it covers everything but looks so natural and like second skin but better. The coverage is fantastic and …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Buffing Brush

I previously only used the Sigma F80 brush and Zoeva 104 brush which are touted as amongst the best of foundation brushes. My friend bought me this real techniques buffing brush as part of a set and I ignored it for months. Finally, I was in a rush one day and couldn’t find either my F80 or Zoeva brush (great luck eh) so picked up this one. When I tell you I was in shock!! It gave my foundation …Read more

To counteract juno777’s review on this concealer, I’m not sure if she got a fake because the coverage of this concealer is not sheer at all. It is the most full coverage concealer I have ever used and I own about 15 different types and brands of concealer. The coverage of this concealer for a drugstore is amazing and covers more than enough, but it is not waterproof at all no matter what setting …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

Mar/10/2018

I have no idea why the ratings and reviews for this product are quite bad. I am an obsessive makeup collector and own way too many primers, but Smashbox Photo Finish primer is the best one I own. It makes my foundation look the best and has a very noticeable difference. Without this primer my makeup just doesn’t look as good.

I have attempted to try other new primers such as the …

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

Jan/26/2018

I cannot for the life of me understand why this eyeliner is so popular and why no one else seems to face problems with it. I have given this eyeliner more chances than necessary and every single time it has failed me. It bleeds, crumbles and flakes within 1- 2 hours - without fail. It also greatly fades within a few hours during the day. The only positive that I can think of is that the felt tip …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

Jan/21/2018

This used to be my favourite foundation, but I’ve realised that it’s not sweat proof at all. This foundation is awful if it’s raining, no matter if I use high end primers and setting sprays, this foundation will run off my face in thick chunks when water touches it - I live in the UK, where it rains a lot, so this is not ideal. I have a problem with my forehead sweating quite a bit also, and this …Read more

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation

This powder really is not for oily skin. It comes off after just an hour or two and my face gets all shiny and oily pretty quickly with this compared to other powders that I've tried. It looks blotchy after a couple of hours and settles into my pores, thus accentuating them. This is the worst setting powder that I have used on my skin type.
