Glossier Lash Slick Mascara - Review and Photos

I Purchased This Referral Link

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Glossier Lash Slick Mascara, their first mascara launch. Like with all Glossier products, there was a ton of hype behind the product and I was so intrigued by the marketing.

On their instagram, they were saying that this mascara "has been tested and proven to last and hold curl for twelve hours". If you're East/South East Asian like me, you've probably been blessed with super straight lashes that point downwards. If I do wear mascara, it has to be waterproof because waterproof mascaras are usually the only ones that will keep the curl in my eyelashes.  Given how Lash slick was described as being water-resistant but still keeping the curl, I was down to try it.

The question is...did it live up to the marketing? Click through to read my review of the Lash Slick mascara on my straight Asian lashes, see before and after photos, and whether I'd repurchase it or not.

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to share a silvery makeup look I did using the Viseart Paris Nudes palette. Naming eye/face looks is a little difficult for me so I'm borrowing an idea from Viola at Killer Colours and titling each look after an eyeshadow I used.

Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money: Review and Swatches

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money. I've been on a real kick talking about Colourpop but it's an incredibly affordable brand that's been so trendy lately while still churning out some great releases so it's no surprise they're one I've been loving. 

Colourpop launched in ULTA stores a few months ago and I took the opportunity to try out more of their products in person. The Super Shock Highlighters are not new and have been part of the range for months but I think highlighters can be so finicky so I tried it in person first.

The Super Shock Highlighter has the same creamy wet-feeling formula as their Super Shock Shadows. It's almost like putty, it's movable and fun to play with. I was super curious to see how it applied and looked on the skin.

MAC x Patrickstarrr Floral Realness Full Face Kit in Me So Chic: Review, Photos, and Swatches

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone! Today I have a review, swatches, and three looks using the MAC x Patrickstarrr Floral Realness Full Face Kit in Me So Chic. This limited edition collection is the second collaboration between MAC and Patrickstarrr. I wasn't really feeling Patrickstarrr's first collection since it felt just too neutral but when I saw the Floral Realness collection and the purple tones, it was just so gorgeous.


MAC x Patrickstarrr Floral Realness Full Face Kit in Me So Chic

I loved that Patrickstarrr did two versions with color while also balancing brightness. The Me So Chic Kit has purples in the quad with pinks and peaches in the lip and face products to contrast. The Me So Fleek Kit has brighter pink, purple, and blue together and I think you would be able to find one collection to suit your style. 

Each limited edition kit comes with a full sized Eyeshadow Quad, Lipstick, Lipglass, and Powder Blush Duo.

Makeup Geek Lip Products Review and Swatches: Iconic Lipstick, Plush Creme, and Plush Matte

I Purchased This 

Hey everyone!

Today I have a review of three different Makeup Geek lip products, one of the Iconic Lipsticks in Shy, one of the Plush Mattes in Marriage Material, and one of the Plush Cremes in Old Soul. Makeup Geek came out with their lip products ages ago and there was a lot of hype for them because they were frequently previewed before their launch on social media.


Makeup Geek Lip Products: Iconic Lipstick, Plush Creme, and Plush Matte

I decided to get two of the more neutral mauves during a sale and got one of the brighter colors in a set. I've had these lip products for several months now but it's taken me a while to write this post. The long and short of it is, these are just so-so.
