BB Cream -It Cosmetics -Your Skin But Better SPF 50 CC Cream

I love the coverage of this makeup. I have a lot of sun damage to my skin. And since moving to the beach, a lot more. But as i said ,I love the coverage. However, I noticed it was not staying on , so I went whole hog and bought the extras - the It brush ( purchased at
Ebay for alot less) and the no more pores powder. I am not a powder lover, but I must say it made a difference! I would follow the powder with setting spray. And now my makeup stay on much longer. I also buy the makeup it's self on Ebay, great value.


Foundations -NYX -HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

I like this product, I've purchased it in two shades, kind of hard to match my neck as my face is way whiter so bronzer of some kind is usually required.
I'm not the best at doing make up, so some days it looks great, other days it just looks ok. I find if you take your time with the application it looks better (probably true of everything).
In my opinion it offers full coverage, it is pretty lightweight and compared to other foundations the price is really reasonable. I think for every day wear this drugstore product is a gem.


Shampoo -LUSH -Daddyo shampoo

I love this! Really nice product, I'm pretty blonde (dyed), I use this once a week, it gets rid of the brassiness and makes me look even blonder!!
The trick with this is wash in and wash out pretty much immediately, as it contains pretty natural dyes it could colour your highlighted or natural hair if left on for too long!
I really like the smell of this too, only thing is that it is pretty pricey the smallest bottle is $11 Canadian but considering I only use it once a week I can get over it!


Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Preferred Fragrance Amazing (Incredible by Victoria's Secret)

While Incredible has prominent sparkling pear notes, Amazing has a sweet, powdery scent. Though it lacks the complexity of the original, it is a good alternative, since Incredible is a rare find these days. It has a reasonable wear time, with light sillage. I have layered this with other floral scents to round out the notes.


Lipstick -Bare Escentuals -Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Love, love, love this!! Matte lip color has always been a challenge for me. I find it so drying (and I've tried lots of high-end brands). But this is so creamy and moisturizing, yet it's truly matte. The shades are gorgeous, too. I'm somewhat fair skinned, and I found several of the "darker" colors in this collection look great on me. These are a huge win in my book!!


Liquid -Cargo -Oil-Free Liquid Foundation

This foundation is blowing my mind. I had to remake an account just to talk about it. It is the most skin like foundation I've ever tried. It is virtually undetectable once it's on. It doesn't settle into lines or make me look dry. It just looks like my skin but nicer! I agree it's like face and body but not as greasy and better coverage. Face and body just slides around on my face and rubs right off even with powder. This stays on like foundation and I don't need to powered bc it doesn't crease. I try to avoid powder when possible bc I just makes my already dry skin look worse. I purchased it from kohls on sale for 30$. I'm shade f10 and I'm a mac nc20. It's a tad light for me but not noticeable once it's on. F20 looked way too pink for me. If you come across this I would definitely pick it up. I have tried COUNTLESS foundations trying to find a holy grail and this one is a top contender FOR SURE!


Liquid -Smashbox -Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

This is my HG foundation. I have used it for years, and anytime I try something new, I come running right back to it. It blends easily, has an excellent range of colors, and stays on like mad (with primer, of course). The finish is a perfect marriage between natural and matte. I get lots of compliments on my skin when I wear this, which is amazing because I don't have naturally great skin. In fact, I use two prescription creams to keep me clear. That said, it does cling to my dry spots in the winter time. But, I haven't found any foundation that doesn't do that (because prescription creams dry me out in some spots soooo badly).


Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

Ugh. I had high hopes, having heard all the raves about Lancome mascara for years. This did NOT deliver. Wet, clumpy, messy, smudgy, YUCK. These are all words I think of when I think of this mascara. It smudges under my eyes like crazy, and the super wet formula gets everywhere. I have tried better drugstore mascaras. What a waste on this one! I ordered Hypnose, though. Here's to hoping it's better--but the bar is pretty low!


Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal -Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

on 11/17/2017 10:43:00 AM

As a makeup junkie, I must tell you that this is a hidden gem in the world of drugstore makeup.

For one, I am someone who suffers from old acne scars (i.e. pit scars, box and rolling scars) and used to buy the Clarins Instant Smooth Primer and would pay $ 38.00 per jar. Mind you, it lasted me for so long but having to spend that money on a primer was just too much for me considering I have dupe from the drugstore.

The secret of this primer is the way it makes all of my textures a little less textured. Yes, it can get oily. However you will need to do the following steps to apply this:

Application: Don't apply this primer like your lotion type primers by massaging it to your skin - this is a BIG NO!!!!!!!

You have to pat this primer on to your skin. I repeat "pat" on to your skin. Wait for at least 2 minutes before you apply your foundation and you'll thank me for it.

Also, a little goes a long way. Start with a tiny amount and add as needed.

I hope that L'Oreal will never stop making this. It is truly an amazing primer!


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

I am a late bloomer when it comes to this foundation. I have purposely ignored it for so long because in a way I am a foundation snob and I have quite a bit in my collection. However, I am impressed with the way this foundation held up on my oily combination skin.

A bit of background, I suffer from old acne scars (pit scars, box scars etch) and I try my best to minimize their appearance by using primers. In this case, I used a combo of Hourglass Mineral Veil and L'Oreal Magic Base (dupe for timeless primer from Tarte) on the center of my face.

Application: The blendability of this foundation is amazing. It blended right away with my beauty sponge.

Shade: I wear shade 120 Classic Ivory. For reference, I am MAC NC 25 (Light Medium with Golden/Olive Undertones).

Coverage: Light to Medium Coverage. If you have any active acne or intense redness on your skin, you will need a concealer.

Longevity: I am using this during the winter time so the weather will help to sustain the longevity of it.

Price: So darn cheap!

Packaging: No pump ugh!

Overall, a decent foundation and could rival my HG Revlon Colorstay. If you are looking for a decent, affordable foundation this is a must try.

I hope this helps!
