Eye Shadow -MAC -Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection

on 3/18/2018 2:05:00 PM


I'm clearly the minority here but I'm disappointed with Vintage Selection.
It looked wonderful in the store and thought that this pale glistening creamy eyeshadow would be my go-to look for springtime for soft everyday glam paired with bright lipstick and blush. The consistency is indeed great but the shimmer is much chunkier than I expected and unevenly distributed. I enjoy shimmery eyeshadows - the most recent I bought, Caviar Stick in Moonlight by Laura Mercier is incredibly sparkly but applies like an even veil of high shine while Vintage Selection looks like chunks of glitter thrown here and there. Maybe my teenage niece will have fun with it...

Eye Shadow -MAC -Camel Coat

on 3/18/2018 1:56:00 PM

The quality of this paintpot is great (beautifully creamy, nice coverage, easy to apply, covers discolorations and stays put without creasing) but with my fair warm-ish skin and green eyes it's hugely unflattering; makes me look dull and tired in a split second. I loved the color when swatched and the consistency but definitely doesn't work for me. Even as a base it makes eyeshadows added on top look ugly. Call me bitterly disappointed.

Seriously so beautiful both on the skin and in the pan. Not the best if you go for a more natural highlighter, but other wise this is so beautiful, reflective and golden.

Highlighters -Wet 'n' Wild -MegaGlo Highlighting Powder - Blossom Glow

Would be super pretty on very fair cool skin tones, but with my warmer tan right now, it looks like a silver metallic stripe! Formula is a 10/10 though, and for $6 Canadian and in the drugstore, I recommend checking them out. Golden flower crown I use constantly!

Treatments (Eye) -Derma E -Firming DMAE Eye Lift

on 3/18/2018 1:18:00 PM

This little tube lasted several months with daily use. I couldn't believe how long it took to go through it all. Considering it was $24, that's a great value! It's a smooth creamy consistency and I applied it using my ring finger after squeezing a small circle size and dabbing it on. It worked fairly well on my fine lines. It's not my holy grail but I'd say it's a perfect starter eye cream if you've never used one and if you want an eye cream for mild concerns mostly. I think it firms with consistent use because if I slacked off of a bit, I could see the difference and things improved after resuming use again.

Highlighters -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills -Glow Kit

This review is for SUNDIPPED only! Gleam I absolutely hated and returned which made me super hesitant to buy sundipped. But holy moly sundipped is beautiful! It transitions with my skin tone as I get more tanned and then more fair. It’s a lit from within Glow, and stays so well that it lasts through 12 hr nursing shifts in the summer! It’s not going to punch you in the face *like ofra* but if you like a more natural less metallic glow, I highly recommend!

Moisturizers -La Mer -Moisturizing Cream

on 3/18/2018 1:13:00 PM

This white cream is not sufficiently moisturizing for my dry skin. It has a thick, dry texture. Ir's packaged in a heavy, glass jar.

Polishes -China Glaze -Athlete Chic

on 3/18/2018 1:01:00 PM

Beautiful! From their Chic Physique Collection for Spring 2018, China Glaze's Athlete Chic is a bright and cheerful medium orange creme that leans just slightly pinky-coral. It dries to a gorgeous candy-like finish and looks awesome on the nail. I just love it!

Great formula too. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear.

If you're looking for a fun and flattering orange polish, I recommend this one very highly. I'd definitely buy it again!

Primer/ Corrector -Algenist -REVEAL Color Correcting Radiant Primer

on 3/18/2018 12:39:00 PM


I love this product!! It is amazing for my combo-oily skin. Just to be clear, I don't actually use it as a foundation primer. And I don't use moisturizer with it either. This is my one-and-done, skin-perfecting, no-makeup-look product. And it is so perfect for that!!

Algenist's Reveal Color Correcting Primer is water-based and has the texture of a lightweight lotion. And there are all these tiny color-spheres that feel grainy at first but they dissolve as you apply the product to your skin. This primer comes in only one universal shade, but the color is so subtle and sheer that I think it would work for just about every skin tone. It just looks natural and beautiful.

This product makes my skin look more even-toned, and it adds a radiant glow as well. And it doesn't make my skin all greasy by the end of the day either.

I think this is great, and I'd definitely buy it again!

Tinted Moisturizer -Neostrata -Wrinkle Repair Moisturizing CC Cream SPF 30

on 3/18/2018 12:38:00 PM


I love this product, smooth, moisturising and natural looking. It's really light coverage so I could see that it could be disappointing if you are looking for full coverage. Big bonus that is has 30SPF. My only complaint is that it's VERY expensive. It's about $80. regular price. I've only bought is on sale & have even found it at Winner's as a gift pack for about $40.
