Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - Perfect Foundation Brush

4.0

Feb/07/2016

This brush was smaller than I expected, and although it would be nice if it was slightly bigger, I still really like it for liquid and cream foundations. It blends my foundation so nicely and seamlessly with abosolutely no streaks. I find the patting motion technique really helps bring out the most coverage. I don't think its difficult to wash this brush provided that you use a good brush …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2016

I wanted to love this so bad, but unfortunately this foundation isn't for me. F&B foundation provides sheer to light coverage and provides a nice dewy finish initially. But after a couple of hours, my skin looked more greasy rather than dewy, even on my normal skin areas. And because of this, I could kind of feel the foundation on my skin. Even though the foundation made my skin greasy …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF30

I love this foundation! It is definitely an improved version of the Face and Body foundation. I actually went into the mac store to get F&B but the girl that helped me suggested this one instead, so I decided to try both. I am so glad she did because this one worked so much better for me. This one provides more coverage (light-medium), a better finish, and better wear time. The satin finish …Read more

Brows - Maybelline New York - Brow Precise Shaping Pencil

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2015

This pencil is SO overly waxy it smudges very easily. There is no point in brushing through the brows because the product just completely smudges off. I also don't think its precise at all. The wax is really soft so the point is gone after a small stroke. Perhaps this is better as a brow finisher using a very light hand.

Concealers - L.A. Girl - PRO Conceal HD Concealer

Jun/21/2015

I never believed this was a dupe for my loved MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer, but I wanted to try it out because of the raves and not to mention its only $4! I have to say, this is similar to the MAC concealer, and for the price, it is a decent dupe (I don't think it is a dupe for the NARS concealer though). The MAC concealer is thicker, provides more coverage and better lasting power, but it …Read more

BB Cream - Smashbox - Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35

May/27/2015

At first I really liked this bb cream. It makes my skin look really smooth, and minimized my pores a lot. Coverage is light of course, but it wears very well throughout the day. It also helps with controlling oil. Unfortunately, something in this bb cream irritates my skin sometimes. I get irritated patches on my cheeks and nose that clear up after a few days. If this didn't irritate my …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - Super Curler Eyelash Curler

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2015

I tried this about 5 years ago and I hated it. It didn't curl my lashes at all, and I felt like I couldn't see what I was doing because it is so bulky. I decided to pick it up again because metal lash curlers always left a dark mark on my skin from the metal wearing overtime, and sometimes pinched my skin. I think the main reason why this curler does nothing for a lot of people is …Read more

Concealers - Smashbox - Photo Op Under Eye Brightener

4.0

May/10/2015

Sightly over priced but this product makes the perfect under eye base! It gives a bit of moisture, and dries down very quickly. I find that eye creams take too long to dry and make my under eye concealer blotchy because it gives too much moisture. This gives just the right amount of moisture for me, and dries down within a minute, which is perfect for cutting down on makeup time in the morning …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam II

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2015

I wanted a mauve ish MLBB colour, and the artist that helped me suggested this one. I have to agree with the other NC 30 girls. In the store lighting it looked like VG II added that mauve with a hint of pink colour to my lips. When I got home, it looked way too gray against my skin tone. It looks better in the sunlight because the slight pink shows, but it still looks rather gray.
Staying …

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

5.0

Jan/03/2015

One of the best dry shampoos out there. I've gone through at least 5 of these. It is really effective at soaking up grease. I find that it is easy to brush out the excess so I don't have a problem with a white cast against my black hair. This dry shampoo is not hair spray like at all (unlike the ones at the DS). My only complaint is that the smell can be a bit strong, but it …Read more
