Ugh I love this but it was limited edition with the Basquiat Collection. This is such a fun orangey nude. It pairs so well with both neutral or colourful eye looks. It's slightly shiny, very comfortable (a slightly more shiny version of UD Lipstick in Carnal), and easy to apply and blend. It takes some re-applying through the night if you're eating, but it's so pigmented you don't need much for reapplications

I love this. It's pigmented, natural, but unlike other liquid lipsticks it stays moisturizing (despite being a comfortable matte). It's not as long-lasting as Kat Von D, but it feels so much better on the lips. The Hot Cocoa colour is gorgeous on brown skin, and it pairs perfectly with the Oh Cocoa Pout Liner. It transfers a bit on glasses and if you're eating heavy meals, but not much otherwise. Also the packaging feels very secure, so I don't worry when I throw it in my bags.

The super high rating is for not provoking my acne-prone, eczema-ridden, sensitive skin to react to this product at all! It's moisturizing, smoothening, and just subtly tacky enough to hold my foundation a little longer than it otherwise would stay. Also, it's nothing like the silicone primers out there! It's not greasy either. It's just like a watery cream. Does not add any shine or mattify the face; it keeps you looking the same with or without it; just holds foundation longer. Also I love that the lid clicks in; it never randomly opens in my bags. The product leftover (when the pump stops working) is super easy to access if you cut off the top of the packaging. Makes sure no product is wasted (unlike the products that come in vials)

Love the options here! I don't need any other blush with this palette in stow. I mix the shades according to the season/outfit/occasion. They're super pigmented, so it will literally last you for years. They have a very slight, subtle shimmer to them that helps blend them into the skin for a glowy, healthy look. It also blends into my highlight really well. I'd even suggest this as eyeshadow on the days you want a monochromatic look. It's the only set of pink shades I like putting on my lid.

Not long-lasting, but it's a gorgeous shade. I pair this with Laura Mercier's lip pencil in Chestnut. Natural, perfect for a heavy eye look or even for day-glam.

This product stayed on my hands for 24 hours even though I was washing my hands all day. It only removed when I used alcohol based products. So long-wearing FOR SURE. It also blends extremely well. You can use your finger or a dense brush (as it is a stubborn product). However, this product dries in about 10 seconds, and once it's on, it's on! Super pigmented, very creamy/soft application, blends like a dream if done right, and it dries so evenly on your skin that the product won't lend itself to build-up or creasing. This will last you ages. It takes so little for a single application, I can't see you running out of this in a year unless you're doing a smokey eye every day. Only issue is how easily the lid pops off in my makeup/travel bags. The shade sheers out really well, and is a shimmery olive green almost identical to Sephora's Snakeskin eyeshadow. Complements my NC35 skin well.

This is a super comfortable bright red, but it was a tad more orange than I was hoping for. If you like an orange-y red, this is great for you. It looks good on my NC35 skin, but really wasn't my favourite. I think I'll still need to search for that perfect classic red lip.

Fabulous lip liner. I use this to line and fill my lips. Doesn't at all smell like the nauseating NYX Jumbo Lip Liner. It's incredibly long-wearing. I applied this at 9pm and didn't reapply all night, yet it lasted me until 3 am despite humidity, heat, eating/drinking, and sweat. Also this colour is GORGEOUS on NC37 skin tones.

SHADES: 29, 42, 69 These lipsticks smell like either chocolate or cucumber, depending on the lipstick shade. They are extremely good quality; they feel nourishing and are pigmented. The cost is so low and affordable, yet the colour spectrum is so beautiful and natural for a wide range of skin tones. I have NC37 skin and these colours above work so well as nudes for me. It will wear off sooner than the super high end brands, but this doesn't take much product to reapply and the price point keeps that drawback from becoming too costly in the long run. Verdict: Love, love, love these.

Lip Exfoliator

Review posted 6 years ago

Great alternative to the Fresh Lip Exfoliator. It's literally 10% of the price, and lasts you pretty much as long. The thing is this product likes to dry up, so the next time you go to open it, you kind of have to scrape off the top film so that the grainy texture can make itself useful to you again. Also it's not edible (unlike Fresh), so be careful not to let the deceptively delicious taste fool you into swallowing or eating these...

If you want an affordable, natural, matte lip colour -- this is a holy grail product. Shade 660 "Touch of Spice" is perfect for me. My skin tone is MAC NC37/Matchmaster4.0/FitMe310 -- this is absolutely perfect. It's super creamy, very comfortable to wear, doesn't taste or smell like anything really. The only drawback is it does wear/rub off quite quickly. But with low price + the pigmentation, that doesn't make this run out too quick. This is my favourite drugstore lipstick.

This smells awful, like really cheap cosmetic products usually do. The pigmentation is mediocre, but it wipes off almost immediately. Also this colour (iced coffee) does not suit my skin tone (NC37). I don't know if it's just this shade but my experience was not great. You can sharpen this easily if you get a double-barrel sharpener from Sephora.

I like this better than their original formula. I have dry skin with occasional flakes (more in winter, but still get them in summer too) and both this and the original formula dry me out. It probably has to do with the high-silicone content lacking any moisture. This makes your makeup last longer than the original Smashbox photofinish primer. It really does make your pores look smaller, that's for sure. So I think this would be great for people with pore issues and oily skin. But if you're dry skin like me, moisturize the heck out of your face before wearing this! It will make you matte. I touch my face a lot btw, so it wears away quickly IMO but might last longer on others. Objectively, I think its wear time is just average. You end up needing a lot of other products to keep makeup on all night when using this. Also I never know if I've spread it evenly across my face because the product likes to clump and by the time I start spreading it, it's disappeared.

This is beautiful but it made me break out. I have very sensitive skin (face is dry and acne-prone, yes, but I also have eczema on other parts of my body so that maybe contributes to the flareups of rashes/bumps on my face with certain products). This and the illuminating wand both made me break out, and I wanted so badly to love them. Alas, my skin said no. This is an undeniably good product though; super natural highlight (not unlike Becca's Champagne Pop) and it can be mixed into our foundation for an ethereal glow. Mmmmm maybe the skin irritation is worth it...

I like this mascara a lot. My South Asian lashes are great as they are, but this just lifts them to create a totally effortless look. Really minimal effect, so idk if the advertising is reflective of the product, but its great for me when I really want to look like I'm not trying.

(For reference, I am South Asian, so I've been blessed with thick, long eyelashes but I have very sensitive eyes/skin). This was my first ever mascara. And I stuck with it for 8 years until discovering LashSensation (which gives me the drama I want for weddings and in the same price point). This mascara is fabulous for everyday wear; it doesn't appear over the top (even though it's advertised as falsies). It can be layered without clumping your lashes, and it really doesn't budge (unless you forget you're wearing makeup and start rubbing your eyes like I do hehe....). It's a really great formula that IMO puts high-end mascaras to shame. The handle is super comfortable and never slips out of my hands! The tube can stand on its own easily (so great for keeping on your counter without rolling around), and the shape of the brush head really gets every hair coated evenly. Works awesome on bottom lashes too. Waterproof really means waterproof btw. This mascara is stubborn AF. But I love it for that.

This is a decent product for the price. The issue I have with it is that its powderiness makes it cling to my brush in a kind of uneven way so when you apply it to your cheeks, its placement is inconsistent on your cheek -- that forces me to keep applying more product to even out the tone (luckily this product is buildable!). It doesn't blend too well on the face unless you're mixing it with other creamier powders on your brush. The colour pay-off is okay (for a drug store blush), so if you're on a budget this would work. The colours themselves are really nice though and they're numbered according to the corresponding FitMe foundation shades, thus giving you the most natural colour for your skin tone. So for example, my FitMe foundation colour was 310 when I bought this, and the 310 deep wine blush looks perfect on me. It probably blends best with the FitMe foundation, but I don't like that their foundation swipes off if you touch your face with anything (even after setting with powder). The blush, however, stays put and lasts as long as my MAC Matchmaster foundation. Final verdict: if you're on a budget, this is good (especially if you have oily skin). If you have dry skin, this will still work, but you may not like it as much as a creamier formula.
