Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Megaslicks Balm Stain (all colors)

It's pretty much my favorite. I forget to re-apply so it's staying power is particularly important, it doesn't melt if I leave it in my purse for months, and it's inexpensive.

Foundations -It Cosmetics - Bye Bye Redness Anti-Aging Cream

on 10/22/2017 10:44:00 AM

foto

This is really a redness concealer and not a foundation, it has a light cast that wouldn't be flattering worn alone, imo. I use this over primer and under foundation. My skin is a mess, old acne scars, sun damage and lots of blotchy redness and this product is truly a game changer. You don't need much, I dot it on reddest areas and buff it in with a small flat head brush and it really does make redness disappear. I do wish it came in a tube. Definitely will repurchase.

Lotions/ Creams -Bliss Labs - Lemon & Sage Body Butter

on 10/22/2017 10:21:00 AM

Rich, absorbs after a while, nice lemon herbal fragrance. But it's expensive for what it is, and it's so heavy that it sits for a long time on top of your skin instead of sinking in. I didn't like it enough to repurchase.

Eye Shadow -GOSH - Forever Metallic Eyeshadow Stick - 04 Brown

on 10/22/2017 10:16:00 AM

I went into Shoppers Drug Mart to kill time while my car was having an oil change and noticed that all GOSH products were 50% off. I asked the clerk about this and learned that the line is being discontinued/replaced with something else. While I was glad for the savings, I was saddened that GOSH - a brand I like for many of its eye pencils/shadow sticks - would soon be nothing but a memory. I picked up backups for a few of my "HG" eyeliners and figured I would try one of these shadow sticks (I'd tried a similar product of theirs years ago as a dupe for MAC Shadesticks and found it very good). I think I paid $6 for this stick, which is nicely packaged and is a twist up. For a Metallic product, it is really nice - it's quite subtle so it isn't over the top for daytime. It's a lovely cool darker brown (looks darker on my eyes than when I swatched it on my hand) and lasts all day without creasing or fading. It's a very good base for shadows like MAC Tempting or Nars Kalahari....really enhances and gives them depth. The only thing keeping me from getting a backup for this is my concern that it might dry up over time, as these sorts of products often do. But I may go back to check out some other colours because at these prices, it's pretty hard to resist. Canadian makeup lovers, check out your local SDM to see if you can get this or any of your go-to GOSH products before they are gone.

Lips -Revlon - Colorburst Lacquer Balm (all shades)

on 10/22/2017 10:15:00 AM

I have the shade "Coquette", a bright, warm, Barbie type of pink, that actually goes on much more flattering than expected, when applied lightly. Not a color I would normally chose for myself, but glad I took a chance on, because I do reach for it often. This shade does have some silver shimmer in it, but it's not over the top at all. Love the peppermint flavor, and how hydrating this is! This along with Neutrogena's color balms, are my two faves at the drugstore, especially since I have chronically dry/chapped lips! Would repurchase!

Eyeliner -L.A. Colors - Thin Tip Liquid Eyeliner

on 10/22/2017 10:09:00 AM

Shockingly great liquid liner for only $1! The ultra thin, small brush makes it super easy to line close to the lashline, and create a perfect cat eye wing. The Black shade is a nice, deep, richly pigmented black and the formula does not smudge or flake off during the day. No irritation either, and I have sensitive eyes. I am on my 3rd tube, and will repurchase!

Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

on 10/22/2017 10:05:00 AM

foto

This is the only bronzer I have liked well enough to repurchase over and over. I honestly can't find anything I don't like about it! It's great for paler skintones, because it's dark enough to contour with, but not so dark that I end up blending till my arm goes numb. Also, it's matte, which is better for contouring and looks more natural than a bronzer loaded with shimmer. I also use this on my neck/chest, which are paler than my face for some reason. I would say the color is neutral, not orange, but not cool toned either. The compact is slim and cute, and the price is incredibly cheap ($2.99). Sadly, NYC is exiting the U.S. market, but if you live near a Meijer store, they still have a nice, well stocked display of NYC products. Will buy a backup (maybe 2!).

Palettes -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Aurora Glow Kit

on 10/22/2017 10:04:00 AM

This product is of incredibly good quality, like most of ABH’s glow kits. The colours may seem bold and bright, but there are several shades in the palette that are quite neutral, some of which are duochrome.The powder is very soft in texture so careful handling it. The highlight have more of a glittery finish and have visible glitters to give a BLINDING finish.

Treatments (Face) -Paula's Choice - RESIST Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA

on 10/22/2017 9:57:00 AM

Ditto here as the rest of the ladies experiencing allergic reaction. My face and neck broke out into a welt-like rash with extreme itch. Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream cleared it up in roughly 2 weeks. Awful. No problems with Resist liquid BHA or the BHA 9. This was awful though.

Foundations -Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

Holy grail foundation and I’ve tried 100s. Provides enough coverage to even put skin tone but doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup. I hope they never stop making this

Liquid -Too Faced - Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

on 10/22/2017 9:39:00 AM

This contains 1.6 oz which is much more than most foundation- so the value is quite good for a prestige brand. I find that this goes on looking more natural than matte. I hardly notice the fragrance,and I thought it would bother me. It wears well for 12+hours on my normal to dry skin. I like this a lot.

Mascara -Clinique - High Impact Mascara

My holy grail. First off, no gimmicks with the brush - it’s a regular normal sized brush. The product itself doesn’t emit the “fumes” that most others do which have always irritated my eyes. It’s lengthening, separates well, doesn’t flake and washes off easily. I’m perfectly content with this for life.

Lip Treatments -Tatcha - Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm

on 10/22/2017 9:30:00 AM

I highly recommend if you want to try the Tatcha Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm that you purchase the Tatcha Skincare for Makeup Lovers Obento Box since it includes a full size lip balm as well as The Water Cream, The Violet C Mask, and a full size Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. The inclusion of gold in this lip balm is problematic since gold can be a skin irritant. That said, I am on to my second jar of this lip balm. Not all people people have metal allergies, but if you do this is one product to avoid.







Skincare - Face -Olay - Sensitive Skin Lotion

on 10/22/2017 9:01:00 AM

I'm still on the search for a moisturizer that works for me! I do like how this is a lotion and feels light on the skin as you are applying it, making it easy to spread compared to some other lotions and creams I've tried- but even then, I feel like it doesn't sink in properly. Either that, or it is leaving a weird film on my face. I don't like the feeling that something is just sitting on my face! I can't figure out what it may have been- but this lotion doesn't make my skin soft! It didn't do anything good for me. I also got some little pimples after only 2 days of use.


BB Cream -Urban Decay - Naked Skin One and Done

Love this tinted moisturizer. Finished one and repurchased already. Do not expect it to cover blemishes or pigmentation issues, there is concealer for those. This stuff is there for you to even out the skin tone. The one and done has a natural, skin-like finish. It is not dewy, but also definitely not matt. I feel the skincare ingredients in it did make a difference over the time. I also find it performs best when applied with fingers in one, max two, thin layers. And well, that's the only foundation that I don't sweat off at high temperatures in summer.
