Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review:

In truth, I bought this product due to its hype online from well-known Youtubers to blog reviews. It seemed to be featured everywhere, and at the time, I didn’t exactly have a holy grail for my primer.

So, when I was in London, I made the decision to purchase the Too Faced Hangover Primer, a primer designed to make you look like you’ve been well-hydrated and have gotten sufficient sleep — two things that I’m always lacking!

[REVIEW] The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Review:

Admittedly, I always tend to stray away from most hyped up things in fear of being disappointed and/or underwhelmed. Hence, the main reason why I’m only now offering up a review for one of The Ordinary’s various skincare products; this in particular being a destashed item from my friend as she found it to not work for her (allergic reactions, irritation, etc). Thinking that it’d be worth a try considering my penchant for anything targeting pigmentation issues (arbutin is a well-known skin brightening agent!), I decided to put it to the test. Would the YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) rule ring true?

[REVIEW] Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review:

Metallic lips have been making a strong return recently — they’re an easy way to spice up any look in a flash (pun intended!). I have been on the hunt for an affordable, easy-to-wear, moisturizing, not-too-in-your-face metallic lipstick (which admittedly in retrospect seems to be quite the list of criteria).

At the beauty section of the duty-free store in the airport, this newly released series of Color Riche Metallic Addiction lipsticks by L’oréal Paris caught my eye. I had previously seen these on my feed on Facebook, but never really had the chance to swatch them in store. They looked very promising, so I purchased #631 Rose Champagne, which is a subtle glossy light pink shade with gold glitter. Let’s see how it holds up!

[REVIEW] Deciem Abnomaly Petrowhat? Lip Balm Bali aka Pineapple Flavour

Deciem Abnomaly Petrowhat? Lip Balm Bali aka Pineapple Flavour was purchased by Cosmeperks.

If you follow beauty trends, you must have heard about Deciem. They are known for their sub-brand called The Ordinary that specialized for skin care and make up which were very hyped last year. Their products are so budget-friendly and based on some reviews I read, the results on the skin are amazing. I always want to try their product but they always sold out here in my country so it’s really a war if you want to get something from them.

Recently Deciem launched another brand called Abnomaly and Petrowhat? is one of the first releases. Nigama gave me a chance to try their Petrowhat? (interesting name, I know) and I was so excited to try something different once in a while.

Petrowhat? is a lip and skin ointment in one product and they have 4 different flavors you can choose from. The flavor consists of Bali (pineapple), Milk (coconut milk), Rio (guava), and Baobab (I don’t know what flavor it is. The website even describes it as ‘what’s that?’ flavor). Among those 4 options, my local seller only has Bali and Baobab in stock so I choose the Bali one since I’m not sure what Baobab is.

The most exciting things from this ointment (especially if you are vegan) are that they are gluten-free, nut-free, alcohol-free, vegan, silicone-free, and even cruelty-free! I’m not vegan but I really appreciated that they didn’t test this on animals. They also replaced Petrolatum (thing you can find in most ointments that can cause clogged pores) with natural ingredients, that’s definitely a plus point for me.

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review:

I’ve been flirting with this essence since January 2014 when it was first released, however for this product to reach the shelves of EU it took a while, as essences are usually promoted and developed mostly for the Asian markets. I finally managed to get a bottle on March 2018 from Notino for 60.90 euro and I’ve been using it twice a day since.

[REVIEW + SWATCHES] Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver Review

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver Review:

I’ve been eyeing these new liquid lipstick from Maybelline for months. It’s not a new thing for Maybelline since they did release liquid lipsticks in the past before but in my opinion it’s not hyped on the beauty industry and the formulas aren’t the best either.

That’s why I’m curious with the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick because everyone is so hyped and I can see it everywhere. Finally I decided to join the bandwagon and purchased 2 shades from the collection.

I have to say Maybelline really did well with the shade range. They made 10 shades originally but added 10 more shades. You can find almost every shade start from n*des to really deep and bold shades. Everyone can find their favorite shade from the collection.

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation Shell Ivory Review

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation Shell Ivory Review:

As a long time fan of Wet n Wild, I’m really excited when I heard they will launching a new foundation. I never tried any of their foundations (if I’m not mistaken they only have 2 foundations before) so I can’t wait to try it. I got mine from an online reseller with an affordable price because at that time the foundation can’t be purchased in my country yet.

Before I bought it, some online reviews were saying good things and bad things about this foundation but it won’t prevent me from purchasing it. The main reason why I really want to try it because they claim this foundation is perfect under 7 light conditions which intrigues me so much. I never saw any foundation with that kind of claim so I want to get it myself to test it.

Beauty Creations Tease Me Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Recently I see a lot of brands, either a luxury brands or drugstore to indie brands are releasing their own version of eyeshadow palettes. As a collector, I really want to try them all but my sight goes to a brand new palette from Beauty Creations because the color scheme is really pretty.

Beauty Creations is a affordable brand from the US and I don’t know exactly if they are an indie brand or a drugstore brand because I can’t find full information about them but we can get their products directly from their website. They are quite well known because their products are really eye-catching and budget-friendly. I saw some of big Youtubers talking about them as well.

[REVIEW] Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil

Trader Joes Rose Facial Oil Review

Trader Joe’s Rose Facial Oil Review:

Luxury facial oils are having a big moment in Western skin care, and a lot of those oils come with premium price points. It’s easy to be tempted by the lovely textures, delicious fragrances and beautifully-designed packaging. I was teetering on the edge of forking over lots of cash for one of these oils, but before I did, I ran to Trader Joe’s for chocolate and as I rounded the aisle my eye landed on this little bottle; I didn’t hesitate a single second before grabbing it up.

At the price I paid, I knew I could use it up for the ends of my hair or my cuticles if my face didn’t like it, but I’m glad to say that my face really, really likes it, and I get to enjoy a little almost-luxury-oil moment every evening when I do my skin care.
