Lip Liners - Kiko Cosmetics - Smart Lip Pencil

Decent lipliner that's only really worth it when it is on sale. The quality varies from pencil to pencil, I have one that is too creamy to use as anything but an all over lip colour, another one too dry, and one just perfect. Test them out in the store to get a good feel of them before purchasing.

Lipstick - Kiko Cosmetics - Pencil Lip Gloss 08

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2017

I don't typically like lipsticks in pencil form, but I'll have to make an exception for this one. 08 is my perfect "your lips but better" shade, it is very pigmented, not drying and light on the lips, doesn't bleed, and with a cream finish. It does settle the tiniest bit in dry lines, but I have yet to find a cream or glossy lipstick that doesn't do that. The one …Read more

The formula of these seem pretty touch and go, so do check out swatch videos before purchasing one since some tend to be slightly streaky. The one I am absolutely in love with is cherry skies, it stays on for a long time without being impossible to remove, and doesn't dry down completely but stays a satin to semi matte finish, which I prefer since I tend to have very dry lips. A minus is the …Read more

Brows - essence - Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara

For the positive bit, it really does leave your brows with a nice tint that is perfect for natural makeup days. The small wand makes it very easy to apply. On the negative side, the tint doesn't stay there very long, and you regularly have to touch up. It also doesn't help shape your brows in the least since it has no staying power. Considering how little product you get in it, you may …Read more

Lip Gloss - essence - XXXL Shine Lip Gloss

How these glosses manage to hydrate my lips better than my lip balm, I will never know. Super glossy, not sticky, perfect over for example a liquid lipstick you can't wear otherwise because it's too drying or crumbly. At night time I put my burts bees lip balm on with this over it and I kid you not, this has saved my lips.

Do note that I don't like the shimmery ones as …

Polishes - essence - The Gel Nail Polish (All Colors)

If you are looking for a colour you don't think you'll use every day, this one is the way to go. If you want to use it a lot, you might want to look in to more expensive brands (Essie, Ciate, Sally Hansen) since these tend to chip pretty quickly. But looking for that neon pink or greyish blue (whatever floats your boat man), hell yeah, go for it. I'm there right behind you.

Top/Base Coats - essence - The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat

As someone who hates saying "good for the price", I just don't like this top coat. It takes over an hour for it to dry properly on me, and I am not that patient. However if you are - go for it. It doesn't strip of the past coats like some topcoats do and helps the lasting power. But for me, the incredibly long wait for it to dry is way too much.

Misc Beauty Tools - essence - Pencil Sharpener

The smaller sharpener leaves your pencil products kinda wonky. For me, the wood always gets shaved off more than the product, never really letting it get a sharp tip. The cap also falls off pretty easily. Just kinda ok.

Lip Liners - essence - Longlasting lipliner

Mar/14/2017

I have a sort of love-hate relationship with this product. On one hand, it had one of my favourite shades I've found in a lip product. On the other, the product itself is kinda hard, waxy, and hard to work with, not to mention the absolute minimal amount of product you get in there. If you want to go for an Essence lipliner, go for the pens, so much cheaper and the reason why I will never …Read more
