Treatments (Face) - Fresh - Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask

Aug/03/2016

This is a great brightening treatment. I'm surprised there are so few reviews. This leaves my skin smoother and clearer after each use. I have been battling adult acne which has left me with dark spots all over my cheeks and chin. Switching to Glamglow masks and face wash have halted my acne and in less than a month of use, this has significantly lightened the dark spots.

I had …

Treatments (Eye) - Algenist - Complete Eye Renewal Balm

I got a generous sample of this in one of the Sephora VIB bags and since I am always on the look-out for a good eye cream I was happy to try this out. It failed miserably in my book, though. Zero effect on dark circles, fine lines and crows feet. It is definitely not hydrating enough for night time. The reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because it may be useful as a daytime eye cream …Read more

Move over, Black Orchid. There's a new boss in town!

I went into Sephora to try out Black Orchid after reading all the great reviews here. I spritzed it on my pulse points and even got the lovely associate to make me a sample. While waiting, I decided to try Velvet Orchid. One spritz of this fragrance on a sample sheet and I was in heaven.

This fragrance is perfection! …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - All That Glitters

On my dark skin, this shows up as the perfect shimmery champagne color. Awesome as an all-over the lid color or tearduct highlight. It is in the veluxe pearl formula which means it goes on very smoothly. It is not chunky or gritty and is very pigmented. I never use a primer with this and it lasts all day without creasing.
I bought this three years ago when i was putting together my MAC 15 …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Mocha

Mar/28/2013

I have finally found a way to make Mocha work for me (MAC C8). Because it is a thick satin finish, i find a very thin layer, properly blended, works best for me. I line my lips with my staple MAC Cork liner, very lightly fill in with Mocha and blend. A dab of clear gloss polishes up the look and i'm good to go with very natural skin tone based nude lips. No pink in here. Matches my yellow …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Taupe

Even though i have tons of nude lipsticks, i just could not resist purchasing Taupe after i saw a youtube video with a lady about my skin tone rocking taupe. It looked gorgeous on her and is absolutely amazing on me as well (MAC C8).
This is a matte finish which I love. It has a good amount of slip to it though and is nowhere near as drying as the fabulous ruby woo. The color on my lips is …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Mink

Mink is a great nude lipstick for WOC. Very natural warm pinky brown. This is great because it does not annihilate your lips like some other nudes. With a touch of clear gloss, it is even prettier and you just end up looking very polished and put together. It is also pigmented enough to cover up my natural lipcolor.

You can also change the color by changing your lipliner …

Eyeliner - Prestige - Total Intensity Eyeliner - Deepest Black

Sep/24/2012

This pencil started out well. First use gave me intense black pigmentation and long lasting use. However, by the time i sharpened this a couple of times, the pencil turned very hard, scratchy and rough and lost its pigment. Maybe i got a bad batch but it also gave me red eyes the whole day everytime i used this. Initially, i couldn't figure out what was causing my eyes to turn red but the …Read more
