Anti-Haul #2 

1. Kylie Cosmetics Brush Set $360

I know its hair is natural, but it is way over priced. And the brand is not that high-end to price it products that high.

Also sigma, morphe and real techniques are great brushes at good prices.

2. Kylie Cosmetics Concealer 

For me I need to see the shades in person and it costs a lot with customs. 

3. Maybelline Super Stay Foundation 

The shade selection is odd and I can’t find a shade to match me. Also I’ve seen that it oxidizes after applying the foundation. 

4. Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes

Not a fan of the the shade selection, over priced. And I prefer my makeup geek and morphe eyeshadows.

What products would you never buy?

Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Detoxify + Brighten Face Mask- Review 

Description

A 4-in-1 face mask.

Cleansing and detoxifying, Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask refines pores and brightens the complexion. Drawing impurities and pollutants from the pores, leave for 10 minutes to regenerate skin cells, stimulate collagen and leave a healthy, radiant glow.

  • Sold with a small brush applicator for easy, mess-free application.

Review-

Before applying the mask I always cleanse my face and pat it dry with a towel.

I use the brush that it comes with and apply an even layer.

I leave on until the mask fully drys which is usually for 10-15 minutes.

I take the mask off with warm water with a muslin cloth.

Results- I notice that my skin looks cleaner, bright, a little dry. Also some of my blemishes look smaller.

Honestly, I would not re-purchase this product as the price is expensive, and I have other face masks that I prefer.

It is worth getting if have severe acne. Which I do not as I have mild acne.

My Full Coverage Foundation Routine 

I either use the ordinary full coverage foundation or the Maybelline fit me matte and Poreless Foundation.

1. Primer- used a few drops of farsali unicorn serum to moisturise my skin And I spray the too faced coconut primer setting spray on my face. And on my t-zone, I use the benefit Porefessional to fill in my pores.

2. To apply and blend out my foundation I use a beauty sponge.

3. Dot the foundation all over my face and blend it with a sponge.

4. Apply concealer to the high points of my face. I use the Tarte shape tape in the shade tan sand.

5. Set my face with powder, I use the Fenty beauty invisimatte powder.

6. To bronze my face I use the Nyx bronzer in the shade deep tan, and I contour my face with the Pixi beauty contour palette.

7. I highlight my face with the Iconic London illuminator.

8. To set my entire face I use the Urban decay all nighter setting spray and the too faced coconut spray.

Review- The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 

Product Description –

Anything but ordinary, this peeling solution unites AHAs and BHAs to offer deep exfoliation and help battle blemishes for improved skin radiance. Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) exfoliate the skin’s topmost layer for a brighter, more even appearance, while beta hydroxyl acids (BHAs) exfoliate the skin more deeply to clear pore congestion – together, they radically improve the appearance of the skin’s texture and reduce the look of fine lines. Don’t be perturbed by the irritation often associated with acid use – The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution also features Tasmanian pepperberry to reduce inflammation, as well as a crosspolymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, Vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant. 

How to use – 

Use ideally in the evening, no more frequently than twice per week. Clean face and wait for skin to dry. Do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face and neck using your fingertips. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. This low-viscosity solution is intended to be used as a masque. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.)

My experience –

  • Use the product twice a week 
  • Gives my skin a healthy glow
  • The product does tingle a bit but it is meant to
  • I have noticed that my texture is improving 
  • I always use SPF the morning after to protect my skin

    How I use it-

    • I cleanse my face beforehand to get rid of the dirt and oil
    • I apply the solution with my fingertips 
    • And leave it on for 10 minutes 
    • Then rinse my skin with lukewarm water 

    Results –

    I’ve used for a month, and it has improved my texture. It gives my skin a glow. 

      I would recommend doing a patch test to see how your skin would react especially if you have sensitive skin.

      Product Empties #2 

      1. Antipodes Manuka Honey Face Mask

      This face mask is the best for hydration and acne as the ingredients in this product fights against bacteria. I use this two times a week. I have re-purchased this.

      2. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

      The best setting spray on the market, this is my second big bottle that I have been through. And I have been through one travel size bottle. I always use this when I’m done with my makeup. I have re-purchased this.

      3. L’Óreal Blemish Rescue Face Mask

      I use this face mask twice a week when I feel like my skin feels congested and is breaking out. This mask is for unclogging pore and to help with blemishes. I have re-purchased this.

      4. Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation

      This is my favourite drugstore foundation and it suits my skin type and skin tone. It also lasts well on my skin. I have re-purchased this.

      5. L’Oreal Skin Expert Micellar Water Normal to Combination Skin

      I do see my self re-purchasing this whenever I see this in stock. It helps my skin by taking off my eye makeup and excess dirt on my face.

      6. Pixi Glow Tonic Toner

      I have re-purchased this and I like it for my skin. It also exfoliates my skin.

      7. L’Oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Care For Combination Skin

      I have re-purchased this once and it really suits my skin type. A gel moisturiser is better for my skin types as it is not heavy and does not clog my pores.
