I spend the majority of my time looking at makeup, learning about makeup or browsing makeup. Neutrals are my go-to makeup style, and I love baking.

It's a good powder. I don't have any other HD powder to compare it with since I have not tried any, but I feel its a pretty decent powder. It feels very fine, smooth and lightweight. It did keep my face oil-free for quite a bit, and the price is very affordable.
If you're looking for a nude gloss at the drugstore, this is it. It's got that perfectly creamy-nude tone, which will be perfect to glide over your lips over another colour, or on its own. Texture-wise, it can feel a bit goopy; especially if you're someone like me who is not too fond of glosses to begin with. But using just a tiny amount will add a nice glossy finish to your lips and won't make it feel sticky.
Another love of mine by ELF! Bought this for the contouring/bronze shade initially and it did not disappoint! Again, it looks like its going too be too shimmery, but that is not the case at all. The bronze/contour shade looks lovely without being frosty. You can definitely use it for both bronzing and contouring. The blush is also a great colour and product.
The texture of this eyeshadows are nothing short of amazing. They are very smooth and buttery! The Honey Pot shade is a vibrant neutral gold while Cocoa Puff is a deep dark chocolate brown with flecks of gold shimmer in it. The shimmer/glitter doesn't show up though when it's on your lids, so it just looks like a straight up brown. Another thing to note is that Cocoa Puff looks a lot more milky-golden-brown in the pan, but when swatched it definitely goes on darker like a straight up espresso shade.
This is a great peachy-nude shade. I love wearing this shade for that Kylie Jenner-esque lip colour. As for the product itself, it does go on really nicely and feels/smells good. But it does not last too long, and you'll need to reapply after a few hours.
One of my favourite mascaras. Ever. It gives me great length and volume, and it holds the curl really well. Definitely budge-proof and waterproof - you'll need a good eye-makeup remover to take off this bad boy.1
Use a light hand with these! They look super intimidating and scary in the pan, but with the lightest of application, these looks so good on your cheeks! Surprisingly, the bright red shade is very 'normal' looking once on your cheeks. This palette comes with two matte shades and one shimmery shade. It is super pigmented and easy to blend to boot.
i like these NYX lip creams. They glide on very easily on the lips and the colours are nice. Plus, they smell good to me. It dries to a matte finish, but they do not feel drying at all. It feels like you've got a light layer of lipstick on. The downside is that they are not long-wearing. After a few hours, the product will settle into the lines and crevices of your lips. If you do not mind re-applying, then this shouldn't be a problem.
This is a stunning shade! Even on its own, you'll get an amazing eye makeup. Pigmentation is amazing and you get a lot of product in the pot. The shade is a brown with green duo chrome to it. Depending on the light, it can even show up with a bit of red and blue in it. This is also a great dupe for MAC Club eyeshadow and MAC Blue Brown pigment.
I love the contouring shade - its a good colour to create a nice contoured look. It definitely is a cool-toned shade which is great for that purpose and it is matte. The highlight shade I can't say too much about, as I haven't used it, but it is a nice golden colour. Might be a tad too gold for me to use as a highlight, but it can definitely work and would look great an a deeper skin tone.
I love my ELF blushers! This is a nice plummy-mauve shade - great for any skin-tone, I think. It looks very shimmery in the pan, but it does not go on super frosty on the cheeks; it gives just the right amount of sheen and glow to your face.
I like this eyeliner a lot! It's very creamy and pigmented, glides on very easily too! Even the brush it comes with works great to create the feline flick. No complaints here!
It's a peach-toned bronzer with a slight sheen to it. Unfortunately it's not dark enough for me to use it as a bronzer to give me that all-over glow, but it works. Since it is more on the peach-tone, I can use this as a blush too. The sheen in the finish doesn't show up too glittery, so that's good.
Another favourite of mine! It's safe to say that Revlon is one of my favourite brands. This nude shade is more on the warm-peach side, and it is perfectly matte and stays put for a good amount of time. It goes on great on my lips and does not leave the dry and chapped after. This shade is perfect to be worn on its own for that red-brown-ish Kylie Jenner-ish lip colour.
Ginger Rose is my absolute favourite lipstick for day-to-day. It's the perfect pink-mauve shades that is not too purple for my skin tone. I love the creamy formula as it glides on easily and doesn't leave my lips chapped after using it through out the day.
One of the best drugstore concealer! Provides full-coverage with a matte finish, it is perfect for camouflaging unsightly blemishes and scars. A little dab of this will do wonders to your complexion!
I have the shade Radiant Rose, and I love it for adding extra brightness and highlighting my face. Just like the Pro Longwear Concealer, the twist-up mechanism can be a bit annoying with how it would push out too much product; so be careful when you twist it! The brush tip is only for applying and depositing the product, you cannot use it to blend it out. But as for the highlight shade itself, i think it is amazing. Definitely adds a lot of brightness to your face!
One of the best concealers I've used! It gives a beautiful full-coverage without being cakey, and another plus is it feels very light on the skin. One gripe I have about this concealer is the pump - it dispenses too much product! So, what I do with that is take the excess and dab it on my chin, cupid's bow, bridge of my nose and forehead to highlight. Aside from that, it's all good for this concealer.
This is a plummy-mauve shade that I go to when I want a purplish eyes. Again, like any other MUG shadows, this is also easy to blend. The pigmentation is great, and price is affordable.
A great warm chocolate-brown; I can use this one shade as an all over lid shade for a quick and easy smoky eyes, or to darken up any other colours. Matte finish with great buttery texture. Super easy to blend.
I use this shade as a transition colour, especially when I want something that's more on the orange-y and warm side. Great for blending out colours!
I love this shade! Use it on its own, or pair with other colours, and voila! Instant sultry eyes! I especially love how the warmth really brings out the brown in my eyes.
