Primer/ Corrector - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50

2.0

May/05/2015

I went ahead and took the jump in buying this primer, even after reading bad reviews about the new formula. I hoped it would work for me anyways, because I was in dire need of something with a high SPF to wear under my make-up. I used to wear a Shiseido SPF product but stopped because my mom kept on commenting that I look like a ghost every time she saw me- needless to say, the stuff left a white …Read more

Moisturizers - Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Creme

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2015

Picked this up a week ago and, so far, am very satisfied. It's a thick, emollient moisturizer with no strong fragrance at all. Eucerin is only available in pharmacies here, which for some reason makes me feel better about buying the brand. As if it's more scientifically supported stuff.

Anyways, I'm very much relieved to find a non-irritating moisturizer that …

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2015

Hoola really is the perfect bronzer; feel free to believe the hype.

No shimmer, no glitter, good formula, blendable, no annoying orange undertone that brings out the inner Snooki, and oh man is it PIGMENTED. So pigmented, in fact, that I have to ever so gently tap my brush in the pan to avoid picking up too much product. Is it because my skin is so fair? I'm NC15-20, which is …

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

5.0

Feb/17/2015

How lovely of TheBalm to have branched out to Belgium! Their products have been selling out QUICK at drugstores here, and for good reason.

Mary Lou-Manizer has really become my HG highlighter. No chunks of glitter, just a nice champagne hue that catches the light in just the right amount, as long as you don't go overboard with application. I've also taken to using it in the …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2015

Sometimes, usually despite my better judgment, I branch out from my HG Dream Lumi highlighting pen to try out some other concealers. Just to make sure I'm not missing out. 9 times out of 10 I will chuck my new product into my little drawer where products go to die, never to use it again, disheartened that I once more wasted my money.

With this little baby, however, this was most …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2015

I came across this sponge about a month or two ago (I think) and I am absolutely loving it. I can't compare it to the original BeautyBlender, but this sponge has made my makeup application so much smoother!

My skin has been acting up lately, drying out due to the products I'm using to treat some spots. This left me constantly frustrated when using my fingers or a brush to …

Eyeliner - essence - Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2015

I bought this eyeliner and its waterproof counterpart on a search for affordable liquid liners. The normal one is entirely forgettable; it smudges and crumbles and has no staying power.

The WATERPROOF version, however, I use daily!! It doesnt have a separate page on this site yet, so I'll just say it here: it is absolutely amazing, and dirt cheap. Once you've learned to …

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2015

I have mixed feelings about this serum.

On the one hand, my skin has magically cleared up since I've started using it. I've also noticed that if I become less diligent with it, my chin (my trouble area) breaks out again. So I guess it's really this product that has been keeping my acne at bay!

On the other hand, since I've been using it, my make-up seems …

Candles - Yankee Candles - Vanilla Cupcake

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2014

In my recent scented-candle-craze I did some research and decided that I absolutely must have a Yankee Candle. So I hunted down a shop that sells them, spent half an hour smelling candles, and went for Vanilla Cupcake. Halfway out the door I almost turned around to trade it for another one, but I am soooo glad I didn't. As I'm already eagerly awaiting Christmas and in a premature bout …Read more

Blush - theBalm Cosmetics - Instain Blush in Argyle

Nov/15/2014

Ooooh this is the cutest little blush! I bought it on a makeup-buying-rampage and do not regret it. The colour is this adorable slightly peachy girly pink, and it makes my cheeks give off a healthy rosy glow. You really don't need much of the stuff; I lightly pat my angled blush brush in it a couple times, tap off the excess, and then sweep it across my cheeks. It's so pigmented, you …Read more
