REVIEW: First Aid Beauty


This winter has been intensely dry for my skin. I have dry patches all over my face, a crusty nose, and a flaky forehead. I have tried to double up on my moisturizers but my skin can’t seem to soak it up.

DUPE for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Dupe alert!

The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper has been a cult favorite since it came out. It is the blackest black waterproof eye liner with a brush tip that makes it easier to do a fleek wing that stays put for the whole day.

From hunting for a drugstore alternative, my sister and I have come across a very similar dupe for it which is the Physicians Formula Eye Booster™2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum.


This eyeliner claims to boost lash volume, length and thickness, but I don’t see any effect for that matter. I don’t really care because finding a good dupe is always a good thing.

Both eyeliners have an identical skinny brush tip. I personally prefer brush tipped liners instead of felt tip because it’s easier to do a sharp flick with it.

January Beauty Favorites + Mini Reviews


  1. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface
    – I didn’t think I would like a bright pink blush but this just gives my skin tone a natural winter flush.
  2. Tony Moly Auto Eye Brow Easy Touch in #3 Dark Brown
    – A definite dupe for the Anastasia Brow Whiz but this is so much better and for just about quarter of the price. Anastasia has also released a new Brow Definer that looks exactly the same. This has lasted me for like 4 months now and I still have a lot left. It stays put all day and is as pigmented as the Anastasia one.
  3. Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Champagne Pop
    – Great highlight for people who wants to shine like a disco ball like me.

  4. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Madeira and Honeyberry
    – My go to nude combo. Honeyberry on the outlines and Madeira to fill in all over the lip.
  5. Lash Sensational Mascara – waterproof
    – Another great drugstore waterproof mascara. Gives length and volume and holds a curl. Period.
