Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Calypso Coral

I usually use Fresh Melon but I finally got this because I liked the colour on my lips.
I'm really lazy in the morning I dip my concealer brush and draw a light line alone my cheek/apple of cheek then go over with a blending brush. It really does work as a blush! it's layerable so the more vivid you want your colour, the more you can use or go over the previous …

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Suvana- Paw Paw and Honey Certified Organic Lip Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/12/2015

It smells like honey. I know it's honey and pawpaw but my pawpaw balms never smelled like honey before.

The texture consistency isn't as smooth as other pawpaw. I had sugar granules in mine that dissolved/melted when I applied the balm to my lips. It's a fantastic product even if it smells a bit odd, not pure honey, but honeyish, and I don't like the texture against …

Primer/ Corrector - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

3.0

Aug/11/2015

I'm subtracting two lipsticks because of the price to product quality/outcome effect ratio, and the SPF15 factor claim.

As someone who the sun hates, whenever I see a makeup product advertised as SPF I put some on the back of one hand, and SPF15 sunscreen that has been validated by an organization (i.e. cancer society that tests sunscreens to look at burn prevention) …

Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Lip

Ok, I was really skeptical of this thing. It looked like some weird hot glue gun stick in a lipstick case and I was like, "That's way too much to pay for some weird looking vaseline glue."

But this thing works.

I was given one as a sample when i purchased a ridiculous amount of Mac lipsticks, and let me tell you when I was done I went back and purchased three …

Lip Gloss - Lancôme - Lancome Juicy Tubes

2.0

Aug/11/2015

These are ridiculously sticky. They're like a glorified version of a Thin Lizzy lip-gloss.

The formula is thick and as I already said, sticky. It doesn't spread easily, and your lips look unnaturally 'wet' after you finish application.

Unless your desired look is that, you need to blot, but once you do it takes away the shine factor but leaves a sheen …

Primer/ Corrector - Australis - Primer

3.0

Aug/11/2015

This was my first ever primer, pretty cheap ($20) in a time when there weren't many selections available, and I JUST discovered primers were a must-have and not simply just another one of the billion things people have in their makeup kit.

Firstly, primers are not a waste of money. A bad one is still thousands of times better than just caking foundation on no matter how much you …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.19 Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2015

People always fuss about No. 5.

They really need to know that No. 19 exists.

Firstly, No. 19 doesn't look like the urine of a dehydrated workaholic in desperate need of water.

Secondly, the scent of this perfume smells like spring in winter, a new budding bloom snap frozen in a droplet of ice. It's both refreshing, fresh, and crisp. The most discernible …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Relentlessly Red

I was actually looking to purchase Ruby Woo but the salesperson gave me this instead and I didn't discover the mistake until I got home and used this.

I instantly fell in love. Ruby Woo may be a cult classic but this is MY colour.

As someone who is called a ghost or zombie by everyone because she's not attractively pale but more the kind of girl who is given free …

Eye Makeup Remover - Estée Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2015

The gentleness of the formula is good for sensitive eyes (i.e. contact lens wearers, but make sure you REMOVE your contacts before using any type of makeup remover!). Perhaps the gentle formula is the reason why this solution is so ineffective at removing eye makeup, even non-waterproof ones.

You need a good three to four repeat cycles with cotton pads and scrubbing before you get …

Palettes - Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2015

THIS REALLY SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE.

The colours aren't anything special, neutrals (a bit on the warm side) as they are all the rage right now. Pigmentation is medium (better if you use an eyelid primer) but the shades complement each other, and as mattes go, these are really buildable.

I can't fault this palette, the price is a bit high (excellent marketing and …
