Natasha Denona: Worth the hype?

The Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 in 2 (Rosewood, Lavender Gray, Shell, Light Coral, and Maroon) contains one matte and four metallic eyeshadows. The official description claims that they are “buttery” (not literally) and “soft” (this is true). The formula is supposed to be “revolutionary” (not really), “ultra pigmented” (only if you apply them a certain…… Continue reading Natasha Denona: Worth the hype?

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer | Review and Comparison

I’ve never been a huge fan of concealer. I love the idea of it, but I’ve never been able to find one that blended naturally into my skin. I have a rotation of concealers that I use regularly because they’re “good enough” to get the job done, but I have never been super happy with…… Continue reading NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer | Review and Comparison

Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 570 LA Pink | First Impressions Review and Swatches

I had trouble finding reviews and swatches for the new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks, especially in the shade 570 LA Pink.

I’ve always loved the idea of liquid lipsticks (long-lasting colour that doesn’t transfer? yes please!), and I purchased several Kat Von D and Stila liquid lipsticks a few years ago when they were the major players on the market. I wanted to love them, but I couldn’t. Sure, it’s nice not having to worry your lipstick wearing…… Continue reading Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème vs. Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet

Duochrome Highlighters

I’ve never been the biggest fan of highlighters (#oilyskinproblems), but they’re often too pretty to resist, especially when in duochrome form. They’re also devilishly tricky to photograph. Celestial by Makeup Geek is a gorgeous icy lavender with a luminous to metallic finish depending on application. I wouldn’t call it a true duochrome; iridescent would be a…… Continue reading Duochrome Highlighters

Charlotte Tilbury: Filmstar Bronze & Glow

When I began to hear about the Charlotte Tilbury makeup brand on Reddit and BeautyTalk, I initially thought that it was overhyped. After trying a few products over the past two years, I have found that certain products are indeed overrated (namely the Magic cream and eyeshadow palettes), but several products are surprisingly quite good!…… Continue reading Charlotte Tilbury: Filmstar Bronze & Glow
