Blush - theBalm Cosmetics - Blush - Hot Mama

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

Every makeup lover out there has a holy grail-status, go-to peachy pink blush with gold shimmer in their repertoire, and well, this is mine. Trust me when I say this, but as a blush hoarder that has owned it all from NARS, MAC, Tom Ford, Hourglass, Becca, etc., theBalm's Hot Mama is hands down one of the only blushes I will ever repurchase, replace, and travel with if I had to narrow down my …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Hourglass Cosmetics - Illusion® Hyaluronic Skin Tint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/08/2017

Skin: dry, sensitive, NC20. I have this in two colours, Ivory and Warm Ivory, which I find to be very close. The difference is that Ivory is slightly lighter and less yellow-toned than Warm Ivory, so Warm Ivory makes a better match for me in the summertime. This foundation also tends to oxidize warmer and darker, so keep that in mind whilst colour matching.

The name is a bit of a …

Loose Powders - NARS Cosmetics - Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2017

This is such a beautiful loose powder for setting my makeup, I can't believe I haven't written a review on it yet. I have dry skin, so I tend to be really picky with powders and while I do want to take down shine and make my foundation last longer, I want to avoid powdery chalkiness. My main gripe with powders is that they emphasize dryness and make my face look cakey.

Profile: NC15-20 skin, dry, sensitive. I have this in Ivory which works for the warmer weather as it's around NC 20 in depth, but it would not work for me in the winter. The undertone is perfect for me as it's more of a cool yellow.

This is a beautiful foundation and indeed, photographs so flawlessly. This foundation would be perfect for important events, prom, clubs, etc …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Patisserie

Jun/17/2017

I've had this lipstick for years and have been repurchasing it like crazy. I have multiple tubes of this in all of my backpacks and purses, that's how much I love the colour and finish of this. I have MAC NC15-20 skin depending on the time of year, and this works as the perfect MLBB shade that goes with every look. It doesn't matter what eyeshadow or blush you'll have on …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Too Faced - Mr. Right The Perfect Powder Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/12/2017

Too Faced's Mr. Right is a large, egg-shaped brush with a defined taper that could be used for all types of powder applications. Since the taper of this bush is more defined, it is a super multitasker that can both apply product precisely and give a diffused blend. It's relatively dense with very soft, synthetic bristles, so it's easy to use it for more specific pinpoint …Read more

Bronzers - Too Faced - Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

Jun/12/2017

This is the best matte bronzer for pale princesses, hands down! On my NC15-20 skin, I love using this to give my face a very subtle dimension and warmth. When I wear this, it adds an extra little 'something' that people wouldn't really know what to put their finger on and would be hard for them to explain, but expect random compliments galore on how lovely your face looks. This …Read more

Skin: MAC NC20, MUFE Y245, NARS Deauville; dry and sensitive

This was one of the first makeup products I've ever purchased at the age of 14 and 6 years later, I recently went to repurchase it. I used this on and off for several years, and I used it as an everyday blush for quite some intervals. Needless to say, you really get your money's worth buying this high-end blush …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

5.0

Jun/05/2017

This product is a godsend if you have rosacea or skin redness! I have mild rosacea and this product healed my redness and inflammation almost instantly; as another reviewer noted, you get same day results. I can't speak for the anti-acne claims since I've already been using the Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid for years to take care of that, but my lumps and bumps also look nicely …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Luster

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2017

Now that summer is upon us, it's time for all the warm, bronze-y eyeshadow palettes and face products to come out and shine! NARS Luster is undoubtedly my go-to blush when the weather starts to get warmer. It's a very gorgeous bronze apricot blush with a golden sheen. Although the shimmer is strong in this one, it glows without being chunky or glittery. I love to use this blush as a …Read more
