Primer/ Corrector - Etude House - Beauty Shot Face Blur

4.0

3 months ago

This is best for fair skin (I am very pale, cool toned) because it has a whitening effect and would probably not blend well with darker skin tones. I find it very similar to Mac's strobe cream. I have and use both and find strobe is slightly sheerer and has a lot less pink which I prefer. I find face blur blends easily into my skin and gives me a sheen/glow. I would say MAC strobe is more …Read more

Blush - Etude House - Lovely Cookie Blusher (All Colors)

4.0

I bought and will review three colors in their 2019 collection:

strawberry choux
peach choux
lavender chiffon cake

I have cool toned skin (prefers colors in the blue, pink, purple, candy shades), green eyes and dark brown hair. The application puff that comes with the blusher is useless. It doesn't allow much control of the product on application. I tried it with a …

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex No. 3

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2018

This review is for Olaplex 3- the one meant to be used at home, not the salon versions. Just some things to keep in mind, after use, Olaplex is meant to be SHAMPOO'ED out. If this isn't done, this may explain some of the poor results people mentioned. It is not a conditioning treatment or a leave-in (although I know some curly haired people do use it that way, it's not the intended …Read more

Styling Products - DevaCurl - Set It Free

2.0

This is not a CG (curly girl) approved product. It contains the dying alcohol denat. It's disappointing that the company started by the Curly Girl creator has chosen to include ingredients that aren't good for curly hair.

Brows - Unlisted Brand - RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2017

Mine is a familiar story: I grew up in the 90s when having thin eyebrows was a must. I plucked my bushy brows into submission for two decades. I've also had my brows repeatedly attacked by very ordinary shopping centre threading franchises. After one very traumatic visit where the woman over plucked my brows back to their skinny 1990s glory, I left my eyebrows alone for three months. Sadly …Read more

I use 262 Blackest Black. I love automatic eyeliners that don't need sharpening. This is a fantastic product for the price. It stays on all day, doesn't smudge and delivers a solid colour. I'm very happy with it and buy multiples of it when I see it on sale.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Washable Mascara

Oct/04/2017

I don't understand the positive reviews for this mascara. Makeup is VERY expensive in Australia, so I always research a product before I buy it. Paula's Choice's reviews and Makeupalley are my go to's for that and both gave this mascara positive reviews. I expected good things! What I got was average coverage. My lashes looked mildly more noticeable. Okay for a casual work …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/04/2017

Big NOPE to this one. I consider this my arch nemesis in the skin care world. I used the prescribed amount of product in the way it was meant to be applied. After using it once, my right eye lid went puffy. I used it again thinking it needed time to adjust and it got worse. I used it twice, learned my lesson and stopped. Too late though, the puffiness developed into dry, red eczema. It took 6 …Read more

Masks - Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/04/2017

I LOVE this stuff! I use a bit of it with the weekly resurfacing treatment (see my review) for dewy, fresh, renewed skin. I'll use it before bedtime when my skin feels dry and looks dull. I'll use it instead of other PC products when I feel it needs something gentle but still hydrating. I use a tiny pea sized amount to my morning makeup routine. I have repurchased it and will continue …Read more

Oct/04/2017

I love this stuff! I use it once a week before bed, applying the directed amount and smoothing lightly over my face and jawline. I wait for it to dry a bit then add PC's Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask. Man oh man does my skin look fresh and hydrated afterwards! It's glowing and bright. It's hard to ruin your skin with this- just follow the directions & I wouldn't …Read more
