Concealers - Catrice - Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

For this price, I'm not complaining about this concealer for my undereye. It does not crease, lasts, and leaves a non-cakey finish under my eyes. Comparing with the Tarte Shape Tape and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, this is less pigmented than those options, but it's awesome because it's still cheaper than your typical Maybelline and L'Oreal concealer (especially if you …Read more

Spot conceal is something that takes the most time during my makeup routine. I have tried so many blending brushes for concealers, including eye blending brushes, concealer specific blending brushes, face brushes, etc. The problem that I have had with other brushes is that it sweeps away too much product and takes the pigment off the spots. With that said, sometimes pressing your finger into the …Read more

This was the very first cleansing oil that I have used, and I used this for about 6 months before switching to something else. I kept resisting from writing a review a week into using it since I loved it at the time, and was concerned that I was in the product honeymoon phase.

Pros:
Takes any waterproof mascara off
Takes sunscreen off
Unscented (smells like olive …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

Jun/27/2018

Being someone who is very lazy about reapplying lipstick, I love a good long lasting lipstick. With that said, I'm usually not a fan of matte liquid lipsticks because most of them that I have tried are dry and emphasizes the lines on my lips. Before I found this, I used Rimmel Provocalips (this one has a two part with a gloss that you apply after the color dries down). That one is long …Read more

Honestly, I couldn't figure how to use this as a foundation, but as a concealer, this is amazing. I have acne scars that I need to cover up and I use the spot concealing method to cover them up. Using a fine point brush, this works perfect. I only need a grain sized amount on my hand to achieve this: a tiny bit of product on the brush will cover 2-3 spots. Then I take a blending brush to …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Rohto - Hadalabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Lotion (Moist)

On my second bottle of this. My skin is on the dryer side and this has helped so much to keep the flakes away on my hormonal acne prone skin. In the morning, I usually just pat this on my face after I get out of the shower (so that there is enough moisture in the air for the lotion to absorb), then I follow-up with facial oil and makeup. This does not leave my skin greasy.

What was a …

Lipstick - essence - Kiss The Mermaid Lipstick

This product is very similar the the color changing lipstick from Lipstick Queen. They even have the play on words: Essence Kiss the Mermaid / Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor. I have always wanted to try Lipstick Queen color changing lipsticks since I like It Cosmetic's Je Ne Sais Quoi color changing lipgloss, but I don't want to splurge on another novelty lipstick. I was stoked to see …Read more

Currently I have the shades Light Bronzer and Bronzer. I'm NC20ish and honestly, I can barely see the color when I swatch it on my hand. Therefore, I was quite skeptical that it was not going to work out for me.

This bronzer is so smooth and blends beautifully. The Light Bronzer is a little more warm than the Bronzer shade, but not muddy and orangy at all. Unlike the Benefit Hoola …

I like to use the spot conceal method that Lisa Eldridge suggests in her video. I saw this product and decided to give it a try, I have tried so many concealers to cover up acne and acne spots. I love that there are two shades so you can mix it into a shade that's close to your skin. Maybe one day your foundation is lighter than the other, this will make up for it. Other concealers just …Read more

Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara

Saw raves about this mascara on YouTube and decided to give it a try. Ulta always has BOGO 50% on Essence, so why not. This retails for $5 USD. My needs for a mascara is that it holds a curl, and doesn't smudge. It does not smudge, and sort of holds a curl (I need to make sure that I have a sold "C" curl on my lashes or else the mascara will decurl). However, the packaging is …Read more
