Contour - Kiko Cosmetics - Sculpting Touch Creamy Stick Contour

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2017

This contouring stick comes in 2 shades. I got the darker one (201 chocolate) because the lighter shade seemed a little bit too warm for me and looked more like a bronzing colour than a contouring shade.

I use the stick to apply the colour to my face and then use my fingers to blend. Blends like a dream!! I personally think it is easier to get a more natural looking result with a …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Kokuryudo Hipitch Deep Cleansing Oil W

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2017

I bought this cleansing oil because a friend recommended this to me and it's pretty cheap - I got it for about 700 Yen incl. tax at Donki Hote in Tokyo.

I double cleanse, so I used this in the evening to take my makeup off, followed by my Body Shop Tea Tree Face Wash. This product is mostly mineral oil, infused with eucalyptus and orange oil, which gives it a really pleasant smell …

Brows - essence - Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara

5.0

This stuff is so good, the wand is so small and perfect for the eyebrows. Most of the other brow mascaras have bigger wands which makes it hard not to get any products on the skin - not this one. Will repurchase!

Liquid - TOM FORD - Traceless Foundation SPF 15

Oh my gosh, this is such an amazing foundation for dry skin! It gives a beautiful natural, dewy, healthy-looking finish. However, do not use this if your skin is anything other than dry! I have mixed/dry skin and I had to use blotting paper pretty much immediately after applying the foundation. That said, I still did love this foundation and used it every day.

The packaging is …

Masks - Garnier - Synergie Pure Self heating sauna mask

I've used this mask several times, and I do think it does help clearing your skin! Obviously, you can't expect any miracles - this won't make every pimple disappear after using it one time, but if you use it regularly (say, 1-2 times a week) this will help getting rid of some imperfections. I haven't noticed any effects on the size of my pores.

Conditioner - Garnier - Whole Blends Repairing Conditioner Honey Treasures

2.0

I don't think this conditioner does much for my hair. Sure, my hair feels more nourished than without any conditioner at all, but other than that - meh. I even think it weighs my hair down a little. I'm not too impressed with the smell either, I agree that it has more of a honey/vanilla smell when using it in the shower. Wouldn't recommend buying this.

Treatments (Face) - Balea - Aqua Hydrating Serum

4.0

I'm on my second bottle of this serum. It hydrates my skin without making it too oily. In the summer, it's hydrating enough to be worn alone without a moisturizer. Can be worn underneath makeup without any problems! I also like the fresh smell which is not too overpowering. And it's less than 3€!

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2016

These are actually good lipsticks! High-coverage, pretty long-lasting, very bright and strong colors - all that you're looking for in a (matte) lipstick. I do think that the NYX Matte Lipsticks can compete with the MAC lipsticks, while being a lot more affordable.

The one big downside to these lipsticks is the packaging. I'm sorry, but it's just ugly! The clear plastic …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2016

Honestly, this just isn't a good foundation. Sure, it is high coverage - but high coverage in way that makes your skin look quite flat and not flat-tering at all. Its' quite drying, so definitely not recommended for people with dry/sensitive skin. Plus, I'm pretty sure this one makes my skin break out. I only used this a few times, which irks me since MAC foundations aren't …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Tres Jolie Gel Pencil Liner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2016

This is probably the best pencil liner I've tried so far. The retractable packaging is quite convenient (not a fan of pencil liners I have to sharpen) and most of all: it doesn't smudge AT ALL - not even when applied close to the waterline, not even after a long day without retouching. This is something I've experienced with a pencil liner for the first time.

The only …
