Review: Essence Stay 8h Lipliner Waterproof - 03 so default

Essence constantly changes their assortment and I sometimes wonder, if it's even worth writing a full review, since it might get discontinued soon. Essence Stay 8h Lipliners Waterproof have been added in the range at the end of this year, so they are fairly new.

Asian Skin Care

I was first introduced to Asian skin care by watching some YouTubers that used Asian products in their skin care routine. At first I was skeptical, but as I researched a bit, I realized it's a cutting edge technology driven industry that actually sets up a lot of grounds for Western brands.

Review: Holika Holika Eye Metal Glitter 01 Stella Dust

Holika Holika Eye Metal Glitters are often described as dupes for Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Eyeshadows and since the ones by Holika Holika are much cheaper, I really wanted to try one out. I actually bought it around this time last year and I use it only for special occasions, because I don't tend to wear glittery lids on the daily. 

Review: Manhattan Brow Pro Micro 24h Precision-Stroke Pen - 002 Soft Brown

If you've ever been into natural, yet bushy looking eyebrows, you must have seen brow pens gaining on popularity. I think one by Glossier is especially popular. I've wanted one of these super precise brow pens, because I thought it would make my brows look thicker, yet still natural. Sometimes regular brow pencils can look unnatural and too harsh.  However, it seems hard to one that is well saturated and has fine enough tip to look like realistic brow hairs.

Review: L'Oreal Infaillible Longwear Shaping Stick Foundation - 100 Ivory

I get these urges every now and then and I try a new foundation. It usually ends up badly, because most of them don't turn out well for me. This one didn't either. It just didn't mash with my combinations skin and I so wanted it too. It would be lovely to have a good stick foundation, because it applies so easy and quickly. 

October 2019 Favorites

This might be my first monthly favorites that I don't include any new products. It's been that kind of month that I just used a lot of my staples that I know work for me. Plus my makeup is reduced to a much simpler routine, since I don't have as much time in the morning for it. But these are truly one of my all time favorite products that I constantly go back to.
