    Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

    High quality, smooth, long-lasting, pigmented

    I bought this lipstick in Wine With Everything Creme and I have to say, it can easily compare with my higher-end lipsticks! It is super-pigmented and rich and smooth feeling. One swipe and you'll get luxurious color that will last for hours. It does come off when I eat but even then, the lipstick leaves a subtly rosy stain. It is the perfect red that goes with my fair yellow-undertoned skin. It is very comfortable to wear, and is very affordable. I even blend it onto my cheeks as a cream blush sometimes to give my face a little bit of matte color. Two things that really stood out to me: it is unscented and a lot of product comes in the sleek black packaging.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    Good mascara, but had transfer issues

    This mascara was effective at giving my puny lashes decent length and volume and I enjoyed using the flexible wand, although it was a tad too big to use on my lower lashes (I used a separate mascara for my lower lashes). I liked that the formula was not too wet but not too dry: this mascara never clumped on me once! It would be the perfect mascara formula if it didnt smudge onto my lower eyelid halfway through the day. I'm not sure if it's my eye shape (I'm asian) or my very oily skin, but I have a huge issue with this product flaking off and transferring. I think I want to try this mascara again later but in a waterproof formula!

  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
    7.0

    Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

    Not lasting shine control

    I bought this powder because I heard rave reviews about it, however I found that the color selection was extremely limited to more pinky-toned caucasian skin tones (I'm asian). After picking out the shade in Sandstorm, I found that the powder applied too ashy and whiteish and it did not the least bit healthy. How I ended up using it was to use a very little amount everytime over a too-dark foundation. This product did not do much for my oily skin and it was a hassle to reapply throughout the day. The cover is very flimsy and does not stay on the pan well and in addition there is no mirror or sponge provided to do touch-ups. Consquently, I had to be in front of a washroom mirror and take out my travel blush brush in the middle of the day. Overall, it is not a terrible powder: it set my foundation which was one of the main purposes that I bought it for and it was very affordable.

  • CoverGirl Professional All-in-One Mascara
    10.0

    CoverGirl Professional All-in-One Mascara

    High quality mascara for a very reasonable price

    If there one makeup product I love experimenting with, it is mascara. But after trying countless brands and formulas, I believe this is the only mascara I have ever repurchased. It can give you a natural or a dramatic look depending on how many coats you put on as it is extremely buildable in regards to length and volume. Also, unlike a lot of cheap mascaras I have tried, this one will never flake off or transfer during the day but will easily come off with regular cleanser and a warm towel at the end of the day. The wand is perfectly sized so as to easily coat and seperate all off your lashes --even the bottom one!. The consistency is the perfect combination of a wet and dry formula: it is never clumpy but it can give full, lush volume and hold the curl that my stick-straight asian eyelashes lack. One tube runs about $5 and will easily last 3-4 months. This is an amazing mascara and I will continue to purchase this indefintely.

  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner 2 in 1

    This shampoo cleanses hair thoroughly of any oil and product without stripping hair of its natural oils. I would recommend using this product in conjunction with conditioner though for extra moisturization and strengthening though. I can always count on this product to leave my hair manageable, smooth, frizz-free, and shiny. And I always get compliments on my wonderfully coconut-scented hair!

    Nivea A Kiss of Shimmer Pearly Shimmer Lip Care

    Terrible Lip Balm and Lip Color

    Pros: The packaging is cute... :/ Cons: The frosty pink color is not flattering on any skin tone and settles into lines and rough patches; not moisturizing at all (in fact, it seemed to dry out my lips even more); has unnatural shimmer

  • L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss
    7.0

    L'Oreal Paris Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss

    Great staying power and pigmentation

    What stood out to me was the amazing staying power of this lipgloss. However, with that, comes the very thick and somewhat sticky texture of this lipgloss which I, personally do not mind. I was very satisfied with the pigmentation and scent/taste of the gloss although it is not boyfriend/hubby friendly (they'll probably be turned off by the stickiness and when seen on the lips very closely, large specks of glitter are evident)

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

    This foundation is sooooo high coverage that I use this as a concealer for blemishes. Like all Rimmel face products there is terrible color selection for anyone of color, which, although I am light-skinned, annoys me nonetheless. I would never use this all over my oily face as foundation because it only aggravates my oil glands more and I look like a greaseball by mid-day. It is also too thick-feeling to use all over the face. However, for spot concealing, it is AMAZING and will cover up the reddest and fattest pimple. To use as a concealer, this product is amazing value for its price.
