Concealers - Laura Mercier - Secret Camouflage

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/14/2017

Laura Mercier is a brand that I continue to trust when it comes to base products that I know will perform well. Since I have used the Secret Camouflage (SC) it has become a holy grail product and staple in my makeup bag. I use this for spot concealing my pigmentation on the sides of my face and also in the small part that is darkest closest to the corner of my eye and my nose. My shade is NC25-30 …Read more

Moisturizers - Drunk Elephant - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2017

Drunk Elephant is a brand recently available in Australia with a pretty high price tag. I originally tried the B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel in the mini set that also came with the Vitamin C. I bought this originally to try the Vitamin C because I heard great reviews, and did not want to drop $118 AUD on a Vitamin C without trying. I wasn't really bothered by the Hydra Gel but tried it …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2017

Glossier has majorly polarised the population of beauty lovers with their line, and particularly with this Skin Tint. To start of with, because people whinge that "you need to have good skin to wear Glossier products" : No you don't. Firstly, it doesn't matter how many pimples you have, how much redness, or how much pigmentation: YOU DON'T HAVE TO COVER IT UP, you are not …Read more

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

5.0

Oct/13/2017

Glossier Cloud Paints are unlike any other cream blush I have tried. I am very into the non powder blushes and have been for a really long time, so have tried lots of different formulas which I will compare to the Cloud Paints. I have the colours Haze and Dusk (Haze is my favourite). I am an NC25 colouring (wow that reminds me how much I despise MAC foundations haha) so will be comparing the …Read more

The Glossier Haloscope is a pearlescent and balmy textured highlighter that comes in three colours: Quartz, Topaz and Moonstone. I will be reviewing Quartz,which is a light pinky/champagne sheen. The highlighter is a circle that has an outer sheen with the highlight pigment, and a middle that is a balm made of sweet almond, coconut oil, castor oil, and sodium hylaronate. .

In February I introduced Vitamin C into my routine in the morning to help brighten my complexion and fade my pigmentation from acne in the past. The first one I used was the Clique Fresh Pressed Vitamin C serum, then the Hylamide Vitamin C oil, followed by The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23 % and now I am trying Drunk Elephant C Firma. I used Vitamin C as the first step after cleansing in my …Read more

Toners - Mario Badescu - Glycolic Acid Toner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2017

Mario Badescu Glycolic Toner is a nice product, however it's not my exfoliation product of choice for my own needs/wants.

VThis is best used as a daily toner swiped across clean skin. I had previously used this toner for about 3 years and was my acid of choice after I used the Clarins acid toner and wanted a cheaper option. This has a low percentage of glycolic, which would be …

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Sumo Tech

4.0

May/27/2017

I haven't really done any reviews of hair products as I'm not that excited by hair things. I mainly just use a volume mousse, salt spray and then this pomade by Bumble and Bumble.
Formula: thick and matte pomade. It is not a wax. It's a very stiff and tacky product. You only need a little bit (like I rub my fingers into it and that's enough. If you see the product on …

May/20/2017

I have recently re-visited using hyaluronic acid in my morning skin care routine. I have previously used Indeed Labs Hydraluron for a very long time but for the past year I haven't used any hyaluronic acid. I started using this as I wanted a product to help me keep moisture in my skin during the winter months.

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant. Humectants have the ability to hold …
