Liquid - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Luminous Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

28 days ago

Profile: NC20, neutral-to-warm olive undertones, dry-combo skin.

It's too bad that this foundation's release was somewhat glossed over due to the huge influx of new ones on the market at the same time, because even among those exciting, new releases, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation truly takes the [foundation] cake for me and has become my true holy …

Bronzers - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer - Shady Biz

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Shady Biz is an incredibly beautiful bronzer for those who want to truly add warmth to their fair to light-medium skin. Although I do love a slightly ruddier/cooler bronzer when I want to look a little more sculpted (shoutout to Marc Jacobs Tantastic and Fenty Inda Sun), Shady Biz has the perfect amount of warmth in its undertone for that perfect sunkissed look.

In general, I find …

Loose Powders - Koh Gen Do - Maifanshi Lighting Powder

4.0

If you have anywhere between a light to medium skintone and wished that the Guerlain Meteorites was slightly more matte and came in a loose powder form, this is for you. My complexion is neutral olive, NC20ish year-round, and I feel like I'm just at the cusp of its translucency range in terms of depth. This adds no colour at all to my base which makes this a perfect powder for all-purpose …Read more

Sunscreen - Rohto - Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ (2019 Formula)

4.0

To be honest, I didn't expect to like this sunscreen as someone with dry and sensitive skin. With alcohol as its second ingredient, I was a bit wary, but after a few unsuccessful stints with other sunscreens that I found either too drying for me or not cosmetically elegant enough, this has become my go-to sunscreen for both my makeup and non-makeup days.

However, caution before you …

Blush - theBalm Cosmetics - Blush - Hot Mama

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months 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

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.

This …

Liquid - Laura Mercier - Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation

4.0

Jun/18/2017

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
