TINTED LIP | 3CE Glow Jam Stick in #Supa Dupa




Typical orange for me. I have too many colors like this but I really wanted to try the 3CE formula. Te Glow Jam stick is more of a sheer lipstick that you can build up

LIPSTICKS | MAC Minis

Macy's had a buy 2 minis get 1 free lipstick a few weeks ago, so I purchased some. As you can tell they all look kind of neutral... But the swatches show what they actually look like
Velvet Teddy | Twig | Capricious

Velvet Teddy
Definitely my favorite, it's the most natural looking

Twig
This is very pink, not my type of color
Capricious
Top: 1 swipe | Bottom: Applied until opaque
Sheer ish pink mauve.

If you're familiar with MAC lipsticks, you know they generally smell like vanilla. They don't go on as smoothly as I thought they would, but you can tell the lipsticks are good quality

SPF SPRAY | Supergoop Setting Mist SPF 50


Full size
Mini

I bought the travel size from Sephora a while back and the spray seems to skip on me. The full size seems ok in that aspect, thankfully. I did notice that the first ingredient in this is alcohol... So if you have dry skin, maybe test it out in Sephora first. This smells strongly of rosemary, which is not a bad scent. It is definitely refreshing to spray this on a hot day. For the summer, I think this is a necessity, esp if your skin is oily and it's a bit of a hassle to reapply sunscreen in cream form. I know there are powder sunscreens out there as well, but I think sprays are a bit more convenient. I will say that this doesn't necessarily magnify your face, but that's probably why it's water resistant for 40 minutes.

MASCARA | L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise








I've seen some people say the wand is similar to Too Faced Better Than Sex, which I recently tried. I think the Too Faced is bigger but the two mascaras are quite similar.

Unfortunately neither of them wow me, they are good mascaras though.


$9+ for 0.28 oz / 8.5 ml
Natural looking lashes, could get a little clumpy (esp if your lashes aren't nicely separated)

Smudgety smudge

LIQUID LIP | Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Loyalist (Nude)





Left: Milani liquid lipstick in 10 Adorable
Right: Maybelline in Loyalist

Lip swatch
Idk if you can tell but I think it makes my lips very textured, almost too much so.
With a Jouer pink lip gloss

The wear of this product is no joke. Unfortunately, all the color are too unnatural for my taste. This nude is too light, and the other colors are too bright or too dark. The packaging is actually pretty cute, if they expanded the range I would try a different color

SPF | Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Mineral Defense SPF50+



As you can see it's one of those liquidy sunscreens
The tinted version in particular has a bit of a grey ish color on my skin. If I'm too pale during the year and I use this, it often comes out as bit of a darker pink-beige on me.
Since it is sheerly tinted it doesn't matter as much, but if you're very dark or very pale, it could be a problem.

I used this all the time for a while until I moved on to the Paula's Choice SPF moisturizer, which I can use without a moisturizer beforehand. I like that the Kiehl's is a mineral sunscreen, but I wish they would make a non-tinted version (although, it may be hard to not get a white cash, so that I understand). There's also a slight mineral odor, which isn't unpleasant but it's noticeable.

I stopped using this bc I noticed my t-zone gets extra oily when I use this product, compared to other sunscreens I own. I used to wear this without a moisturizer, but it dries in a way that shows your flaky skin or the dryness on your skin's texture, plus in the winter a moisturizer is ideal no matter what kind of skin you have.


Price 
$38 for 1.7 oz / 50 ml
This is quite an expensive sunscreen in my opinion. I mostly got this because Kiehl's was having a sale/deal. I generally don't buy beauty products unless it's on sale, considering I really don't need more beauty products than I already have.

Repurchase?
No.

Would I recommend it?
I feel like for the price you could do better.

MICELLAR WATER | Garner SkinActive Pink Micellar Cleansing Water




Fragrance free

 I recently noticed I have a bad case of forgetting to review stuff when you use it everyday
I've had this for maybe a year, possibly longer, and I mostly use it to remove eye or lip makeup, which is probably why it's lasted me so long.
I am not a micellar water for face makeup girl, I feel like it doesn't remove face makeup as well compared to makeup removing cleansers or cleansing oils. But the Garnier is decent for lip and eye makeup. Admittedly, I don't think this is AMAZING for makeup removal, because sometimes I have to go over my lips twice to get rid of all the lipstick. But for eye makeup it seems ok, definitely good for sensitive skin.
I've used this on occasion for my face as a refresher or get rid of oil, it makes my skin feel pretty refreshed.

I got a small sample of the Bioderma so we'll see if Bioderma is worth the price.
I think if you're into micellar water, this is definitely worth a try as I think it is better than the Simple Micellar Water.
