Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Valjean Labs - Hydrate Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Facial Serum

foto

SC HG! I bought this stuff on a whim at Marshalls (Urban Outfitters sells it too) after researching Hyaluronic Acid like a nerd. I have combo skin with rather large pores and a greased lightning forehead. I’ve noticed a big difference with fine lines and I don’t get as oily. This stuff balances my skin’s moisture beautifully and I use it both in the morning and evening. About half a dropper full in the morning and then a full dropper before bed all over my face. This works extremely well in combo with Thayers Witch Hazel beforehand as a toner. This stuff is a must have during these dry-ass Canadian winters!


Styling Products -It's a 10 -Miracle Blowdry Volumizer

I have fine-but-not-thin hair and this stuff work really well for me. Of all the products I've tried that promised shine, this one actually delivers! Good volume and pretty good hold for my "You can't curl me" hair.

I only use this when I'm using heat to style my hair because I've found that products like it can feel stiff or sticky otherwise (looking at you, Biolage). I'm not crazy about the aerosole spray. Wish they'd make it a regular spritz-type.


Primer/ Corrector -Hourglass -Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

For the most part I guess it’s worth the 70 bucks…??? I’ve yet to find a primer that doesn’t break me out, shrinks my pores for the majority of the day and keeps my face in place. It DEFINITELY makes the foundation application a whole lot easier and feels lovely on the skin, however I don’t notice a major difference in pores. I use this one on my cheeks and chin, and then CoverFX blurring primer for my forehead and nose- too drying on cheeks and chin though so that’s where Hourglass kicks in. Silicone primers turn my face into a warzone so for now I’ll stick to this stuff.


Moisturizers -Philosophy -Miracle Worker Overnight

I must not have sensitive skin at all (unlike most of the reviewers, so far) because this does not sting and does not bother my eyes, nor does it smell bad to me. Actually, I usually use a separate eye cream, but even when I've put this around my eyes it hasn't bothered me. I guess my point is that if you don't have sensitive skin (and I am lucky in that way) you may not have any problems with this.

I like that it takes very little product to make my skin feel super-smooth. It can feel heavy if you use too much, but a little dab works. I really wish it weren't so expensive, although there are certainly pricier night creams out there. As far as packaging goes, it's thick enough to need a jar but it would be great if there was a nice way to avoid so much air getting to the cream every time you open it.


Shampoo -Redken -Color Extend Shampoo

This is not a terrible shampoo. It cleans my haIr nicely and my hair color has lasted longer than anticipated.

I never thought I'd rate a product down (way down) due to packaging, but here you go. (If I could give the packaging a zero I would.) This bottle cap cannot be removed without breaking it. Seriously. I tried to wrench it loose at one point and broke the lid-part, cutting my finger on the rough edge.

Now, maybe you're not one of those folks who wants to remove a shampoo bottle lid, but it can be very handy to be able to do so.

Why would Redken do this? Oh, yeah... if you can't get all the shampoo out, you'll buy another bottle sooner.

Or, in my case, never again.


Eye Makeup Remover -Mary Kay -Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover

This is the best - I mean the best eye makeup remover. Some mascaras are just like "tar" on my lashes and this product on a warm moistened cotton pad works wonders!


Liquid -Maybelline -FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

I bought this product looking for a good foundation, I tested the colour in the store and chose the lightest in stock shade at the time which was 105. I went home and it was to dark for me I also didn’t find that it was poreless or anything. I just went on holiday and tanned and it’s a good colour for me but I wouldn’t repurchase


Palettes -Kat Von D -Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette

This is a good palette for a beginner who is starting to get into eyeshadow. You can experiment with neutral, cool, and warm tones. You have everything you need to create a matte look, natural or dramatic. The shadows are very soft and blend easily. They basically blend themselves. They blend so well they tend to blend farther than you intend them too. I find that when I use more than 4 shades things get muddy real fast. Less is more. I think it is because they are so soft. The only reason I would not repurchase this is because I tend to use the same few shades over and over. I hardly touch the warm quad. It looks brand new on my palette. Instead of purchasing this again I would rather purchase single shades of the ones I use and abuse. I do not regret buying this and KVD is one of my favorite eyeshadow formulas.

Foundations -Fenty Beauty -Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

I really wanted to like this foundation after all the hype. However I was really disappointed as this made me oxidize like a oompa loompa. Maybe I will try a lighter shade in the future because the finish WAS really nice. I just did not like that I looked orange in about a hours tops. If they fixed this issue with this foundation then maybe I would buy again.

Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced -Hangover Rx Replenishing Face Primer

This product is hit or miss for me. Sometimes when I apply this I get a really nice finish and then other times I feel like it makes my foundation look grey. Do not ask me how. I feel like the texture is to sticky and sometimes making it hard to blend with my foundations. I rather use lorac pore minimizer primer.
