Treatments (Eye) - SHISEIDO - Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate

1.0

2 days ago

This was sold to me as a preventative aging product, meant to repair the delicate skin around the eye area after vigorous rubbing (eye makeup application and removal). The Shiseido associate told me it was safe to use around the entire orbital area, and to apply it even on the lids. I was skeptical, but the texture is light and gel like so I decided to try it, much to my dismay. I now have a …Read more

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess Mascara

2.0

13 days ago

I tried this mascara after hearing good things, but I was ultimately disappointed. While the product adds a surprising amount of volume and holds a curl, I find it to be a bit wet and therefore messy to apply. The mascara also flakes terribly on me throughout the day, and if I remove the remnants it usually leaves smears as it goes. My face is oily, but I haven’t ran into the issue of mascara …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Sandalwood Beige

5.0

I absolutely love this terracotta colour on my vampire complexion. The colour leans warm, and is a nude rusty peach. There is no shimmer, a flattering sheen, and a moderate amount of pigmentation. The formula reminds me of Dior’s addict lipstick without feeling nearly as hydrating on the lips, the pigmentation is similar as well. I find the colour is noticeable on my lips, but still translucent …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

5.0

Oh my goodness, I have not been so excited about a new product in a long time! I bought the shade 730 (praline), which is a soft champagne/ platinum colour. It applies a pale taupe-y gold with a silver shimmer. It’s extremely flattering on my pale complexion on its own, or used as an eyeshadow primer. It builds on itself nicely for more pigmentation and even swiped over powder eyeshadow for more …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Epic Ink Liner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I really wanted to love this budget option as an alternative to KVD, because I prefer a brush tip to a felt tipped liner pen. I noticed the NYX pen was larger in circumference to the KVD pen, the brush tip was similar however. There isn’t much else to note with the packaging aside from noticing the lid was challenging. I had lots of issues with the lid not closing properly, which eventually led …Read more

Palettes - Morphe - The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I adore this palette, the formula and the shades are lovely. While I am extremely fair (I wear snow in too faced foundations, so vampire white), and I find a lot of this palette leans a bit too dark for day to day wear, I still reach for it frequently. The shades are buttery, consistent, and easy to blend. It works for neutral looks as well as pops of colour, and can easily transition from day to …Read more

Lip Gloss - Hard Candy - Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss

5.0

2 months ago

I have purchased four different colours of this gloss, one being a repurchase of the shade 1395 (Nude Beach). I love everything about this gloss! It has a comfortable feel, wears well, and has no gritty texture to the more sparkly shades. The smell and flavour is enjoyable, subtle and vanilla similar to Mac. I also love the pretty packaging and that the plumping ingredients don’t irritate my skin …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

3.0

2 months ago

I purchased this after having a severe allergic reaction on my eyelids which resulted in a chemical burn. I was worried about trying anything new, but knew I needed something gentle. This product worked for me after my eye area had healed and provided a nice amount of moisture. It is thick, creamy, and turns into a hydrating oil when rubbed in. It sits very nicely under makeup despite this and my …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is on par with the ordinary foundation for me. It is a lightweight, medium coverage, natural skin finish foundation which has never broken out my incredibly sensitive, very oily, acne prone skin. I love that this foundation is cruelty free, has no lingering scent after application, and comes in a glass bottle opposed to wasteful plastic.

The shade range is passable, but I find it …

Primer/ Corrector - Too Faced - Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have repurchased this primer multiple times and I enjoy it very much. I originally preferred the too faced peach matte foundation with a hydrating primer, but I realized this primer cements everything on and I’ve never looked back! I find it performs well under almost any foundation, and prevents me from looking excessively oily or my foundation from breaking up. I enjoy the peach scent because …Read more
