Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

5.0

12 months ago

This has been a very good find! Easy to blend, does not "break down" or gather into oily clumps by the end of the day like nearly other foundation I own. In other words: pretty decent staying power and my definite go-to for formal occasions. Buildable for heavier coverage. Moisturise adequately before use because it is one of those silicone-y types of foundations but unlike those …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Hydrating Macadamia Oil Shampoo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2018

Most OGX shampoos are very drying and their conditioners not moisturising enough. This particular one is one of the exceptions, the shampoo feels moisturising and doesn't strip my hair the way the other ones do. I feel like it's infused with more moisturising factors, and it feels like it's a milder + gentler formula on both the hair and the scalp. After finishing the bottles, I …Read more

Concealers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Teint

Jul/22/2018

I am reviewing the yellow under eye corrector shade.
The opacity of this concealer is weakened by the watery consistency which means you don't get a lot of pigment and coverage, even if you try to "layer" it. The shade of yellow in itself is a darker yellow and so it doesn't even really help at either brightening or neutralizing the dark bluish undertones of dark …

Concealers - essence - Stay All Day Long Lasting Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2018

I never would have thought I’d find such a great dark circle concealer to replace the iconic YSL touche eclat pen. Actually I feel this is better than the high end concealer because it doesn’t leave that Donald Trump style undereye white rim after a few hours. It literally stays fixed all day and doesn’t change colour. Maybe on hotter days it might fade a little but the coverage is still decent …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2018

A reliably easy-to-use matte foundation that blends beautifully and gives a smooth satin-like finish. I would consider this the drugstore dupe for the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. Did not highlight my dry patches like other cheap drugstore brand foundations and my shade was easy to find due to the extensive shade range. Wore through the day without oxidising or turning into an oil slick …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - 123 Looks

Mar/11/2018

Yeah the packaging is thick and the twisting mechanism to volumize the lashes is new to me but I ignore it all because the formula is great and gives my lashes a FANTASTIC false lash effect. I don't bother changing the dial, I just sit it on #3 and stick to it because I doubt the dials make a big difference to the volume. If I want a thinner look I just switch to another mascara to make life …Read more

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/11/2018

Bourjois has typically been a reliable foundation brand and Healthy Mix is no exception. It is easy to blend with a bristle brush, does not leave streaking with brushes so I don't have to use a sponge. Coverage is decent (medium), the finish is not cakey or "fake" so I don't have to feel worried that I look too "cake face" and the staying power is slightly better …Read more

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Foundation

Dec/30/2017

I can't believe this cost me $63 and the quality was worse than the $15 foundations I own. This foundation was almost impossible to blend, the finish was pasty/plaster-like and highlighted my dry patches even if they were tiny and few! I feel like you can only use this with a beauty blender to achieve ok results. I didn't feel my flash photos were that much better when wearing this …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - REVLON - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer - 001

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2015

Past bad experiences with past silicone/dimethicone primers: often too thick, gave little oil control or did not prep the skin properly for foundation. Revlon came up with this more fluid, easier-to-apply version and I am loving it.
It makes my foundation look more polished and satiny and allows for smoother foundation application. Definitely I notice a difference when I use it and …

Foundations - Maybelline New York - Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation

3.0

Aug/15/2013

I don't think this is that bad a foundation if I had nothing better to use, but it would not be something I'd run back to the store for.
I dislike the feel of heavy foundation, so this was a breath of fresh air; it was very light and foamy, easy to apply with a sponge. It provided light coverage which is good if you want your skin to show through and look more natural. It had a …
