Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette

Such cute packaging! What a shame the shadows are absolutely crap.

The shadows in this palette are very poor quality - powdery, fall out, fade away, blend away to nothing, not pigmented and doesn't show up in my medium brown skin.

I like the blush - pretty peachy coral and lasts much longer/performs much better than the shadows. The highlighter also performs well …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2018

Verdict: This product is overrated. It is a drugstore quality cleanser - not worth the price. Will never re-buy.

Cons:
I have oily, acne prone skin and this did not do anything for me. Over the period of using this I saw no reduction in oily-ness or acne. And, I have used this religiously.

Pros:
Cleans and removes makeup quite well.
Not overly drying - …

I am a C6 in Mac Face & Body, Barcelona in Nars Sheer Glow - so a medium brown skin with neutral undertones. And, coralista does not show up on me! What a bummer!

PROS:
-GORGEOUS PACKAGING! OMG that cute box with pink animal prints! It looks so pretty sitting in my vanity. Plus, I really love the brush that comes with it. I think its so good for contouring (flat shape) - I …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

Dec/07/2017

I took a while to come to an opinion regarding this foundation. But, after going through three bottles and many seasons, I have never ever been let down by this. While, this is not my HG, I will ALWAYS have Face&Body on hand regardless of what other foundation I am using.

The PROS:
1. Very forgiving foundation: dry, flakey skin? No matter, this foundation will give even …

Blush - La Femme - Blush On Rouge Powder Blush

5.0

Dec/07/2017

HG BLUSHES! The only reason I buy other brands if there is a color that La Femme doesn't do. They are so pigmented yet look so beautiful! Just remember to buff and blend the blush well, and build with tiny amounts of color at a time. And, the price! It's like the perfect BAE blush - makes you beautiful, gives you the high quality high-end like results you deserve and understands that …Read more

I wanted to love this mascara. Really I did. I went through TWO whole tubes before making sure I wasn't making a mistake or I did not get a bad batch.

CONS:
- CLUMPS! clumps!!! clumpy! The formula is really thick, so its really clumpy and hard to spread evenly in all the lashes. It catches and sticks lashes together and i have 4 super thick spider leg lashes. MEH …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Butterfly Intenza Mascara

Dec/03/2017

This is the WORST mascara I have ever tried. And I have tried a fair many - from drugstore to high end. I love love the volume million lashes by Loreal, so when I ran out I bought this instead on a whim. What a mistake!
The weird flat brush doesn't do anything, its just a gimmick. The mascara did nothing! I build my mascara a lot (i like huge oomphy lashes), and usually even crappy …

Dec/02/2017

PROS:
-works better than hairspray! I divide my hair into sections, apply the powder and backcomb to build volume - and voila! amazing huge beehive volume
-great packaging - so easy to travel with
-backcombing the hair after a few hours, restores the volume
-I like how it doesn't affect the texture of my hair like hairspray or mousse. Hair is smooth, soft - not crunchy! …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

Dec/02/2017

Very average foundation.
Initially when i bought it, it worked alright (and the hype around mac make me like it).
But, as I used it I realized it's drying, sticks to dry patches, dull and does nothing spectacular. (For reference, I have oily skin. I cannot imagine dry skinned women wearing this).

I have switched to other foundations now, but search for HG …

Lips - Lime Crime - Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick

5.0

Dec/02/2017

I LOVE THESE! These come in my top 3 favs (other two being OCC Liptars and Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lipcolors)

Pros:
-lasts all day
-does not collect near my mouth (like nyx and many other liquid lipsticks tend to do)
-goes on smoothly and DOES NOT ACCENTUATE fine lines/lip imperfections (most lipsticks do that on me, so velvetines are special for …
