LOVELY ME: EX PASTEL CUSHION BLUSHER 02 CORAL CUSHION
FACE IT ARTIST TOUCH SHADOW 02 EMERALD CITY
ARTIST TOUCH LIPSTICK OR201
I was familiar with THEFACESHOP brand through online shops and beauty reviews but I don’t recall ever using any of their products until now. I stumbled upon a THEFACESHOP while in Ottawa and bought up a ton of things! Actually, so much that I’m not going to list everything individually.
I’m currently avoiding oils and collagen in any long term skincare products so I skipped many of their skin care sets. Almost everything has collagen in it right now.
I picked up their Blemish Zero products and a ton of face masks. The Blemish Zero looked a lot like the Clinique Acne line I’ve used for years but when comparing the ingredients THEFACESHOP has aloe and less ingredients including peppermint extract which can be irritating to skin.
The Volume My Lips glosses are my favorites. They last and last and don’t feel tacky at all. I was so impressed with the fuchsia one that I went back to buy the rest of them!
The Aqua Tint Jelly is gorgeous but the taste is a bit off-putting. It’s very artificial like the taste of plastic. The Milky Moisture Tint and the Marker Aqua Tint both had artificial tastes as well. The color is excellent though.
Artist Touch Lipstick OR201 – Love it! Lasts, moisturizing, creamy, color payoff!
Artist Touch Shadow 02 Emerald City – Pretty, subtle, soft, a bit powdery and low pigments.
Milky Moisture Tint 03 Apple Red – Pretty! Tastes terrible until 100% dry.
My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint – Pretty, deep red tiny that lasts. Tastes artificial u til dry.
You Make Me Glam Volume My Lips – Like these a lot especially fuchsia and glitter clear. Really makes lips look fuller.
Aqua Proof Marker Tint 02 Pink – Love this for natural tint when outdoors and minimal makeup.
Real Nature Masks – Liked these a lot! All the ones I tried.
Mango Seed Lip Balm – Nice! Like to apply this before lipsticks.
Clean Face Sebum Control Soothing Mask Sheet – Yeah, like it!
Milk Plus Lotion – Good lotion but smells like baby powder (ugh.)
Coral Cushion Blusher 02 Coral – Meh. A bit too shimmery and can highlight pores.
Lovely Moisturizer Mango Body Lotion – Eh, mango toothpaste-like scent. Loved at first but got tired of scent. Absorbs nice and clean though.
Clean Face Anti-Imperfections Patches – Nah, didn’t do much.
Hydro Gel Mask Sheet Vita E – Difficult to use and sliding everywhere, no skin difference.
Cream Shimmer Eyeshadow – Pointless best describes this product.
90’s Rehash with Calvin Klein
Is it because Friends was released on Netflix? Or maybe The X-Files revival? Or maybe it’s just been enough time that the 90’s are being welcome back for inspiration. I’m not complaning. There were a lot of styles in the 90’s that I thoroughly enjoyed. One of which was the utter softness of a Calvin Klein sweatshirt. I had mine for years. No really. I dragged it to college long after the CK hype had died down. And with the 90’s in full revival right now I saw the sweater had been re-released and grabbed one for old time’s sake. Sure I’m not going to be wearing yellow eye liner or face glitter ever again, but cozying up at home while the weather turns chilly with some Portishead in the background sounds like something I could get behind.
And also Ulta exclusively sells the ck one makeup line. Which I didn’t even know existed until a few months ago. The packaging is so sleek and… 90’s. I read the lip products were pretty good and picked up 2 for fall. I really want to wear bold colors this winter.
I really like the color shine lipstick. It lasts a surprisingly long amount of time. I had it on for an entire afternoon at work before it started to finally fade. These two shades look similar in color but the formulas are very different. Little Liar applies more red-orange where Alarm applies more like a bright coral shade.
