Highlighters -Sleek -MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette

on 1/15/2018 1:25:00 PM

I really love this pallet I find that every colour is wearable on my skin(even the darker one with a light hand) Also at first I didnt use the cream hilighter although i discoverd put underneath one of the powder highlighit really makes it pop and actually makes it wear even longer. The pigmentation is absolutely amazing and depending on how light or heavy you apply it you can achieve different levels of highlight.The only reason I gave it 4 on the packageing is due to it getting quite dirty and sctrahed however it’s not that bad. Overall a really good quality product and will definitely purchase again due to the amazing quality and price.

Cleansers -Vichy -Purete Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3in1

on 1/15/2018 1:20:00 PM

This used to be my favorite cleanser for a while: even though I have acne-prone skin, during the winter months I feel the need for a creamy cleanser sometimes.

I love the texture and the fact that it leaves the skin silky and soft. However, once I upped my skincare game I started not to like it and use it that much: I do not feel it properly cleans the skin or at least it takes A LOT of product to take make-up off, it is heavily perfumed and despite it being creamy it still dries up the skin a bit, feeling tight after using it and not completely comfortable.

Would probably repurchase again if I had no better option, but would also drop it without regrets if I did.

You should buy this if you want a multitasking product.
You can contour, you can bronze and you can use this to warm up your all over. I often use 2-3 pumps to my foundation to add warmth or darken my foundation if its too light for my skin.

Overall AMAZING and I will definitely repurchase!

Liquid -Dior -Diorskin Nude Hydrating Makeup SPF 10

on 1/15/2018 1:08:00 PM

I personally do not think this is worth the price. Yes, it's a good foundation, but not an exceptional one.
It's got nice texture, nice color blending, it's got SPF, it's a comfortable wear, but the coverage is average and does not last that much. After 3-4 hours the shine starts to peak through it and it starts to lose color uniformity.

In short, would not buy again.


Lipstick -Maybelline -24 Hour super stay

Full disclosure here and probably an unusual reason to provide a review ... I’m a lip gloss junkie and almost never wear lipstick as I find almost all of them too drying. Once or twice per year for three or four consecutive days I find I need a full coverage lipstick that absolutely will not budge in order to conceal bruises from lip injections. This stuff definitely does the trick! I find even the lighter end of the color spectrum in this brand will provide full coverage. The key is to start with clean dry lips and apply two or three coats and let it dry completely between coats. Sometimes I need to put an extra coat just on the bruise itself. I reapply the balm frequently as I like my lips to feel moist. I use Lancôme Bifacil to remove. I’ve read great reviews on the Revlon version and may try that as well.

I'm reviewing the updated version of this (according to the Benefit website it's the same formula, different name and packaging) Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer. This was a splurge for me at about $30 CDN, but I was intrigued by the idea of a concealer and hydrating treatment in one, since it's winter and my skin has been dry AF. This goes on like a Chapstick, it stays moist and tacky, the coverage is minimal, I don't find it to layer well with other concealers, powder clings to it and cakes up...and worst of all...it causes even my waterproof mascara to smudge under the eyes. The packaging is cute-it looks like a pink pencil eraser-and the hydration is nice...but this product is a bit silly

Eyeliner -Cover Girl -Get In Line Liquid Eyeliner

foto

This is THE best liquid eyeliner I have ever used.
It dries down to a completely matte finish and is very waterproof (I wear contact lenses and am prone to getting watery eyes). It lasts long, long days without smudging or flaking off. I own it in "Bold Brown" and "Major Matte Black", they are so intensely pigmented with just one swipe.
The tip is marketed to be a 0.1mm feather-fine tip, true to its claim as I find that I can get a very sharp wing and thin lines very easily. It's just as easy to build up a thicker line because of the pigmentation of the product, you don't have to constantly go over your liner to get it super dark.
This has replaced my previous HG Kat von D tattoo liner. It's cheaper (!!!), more matte (my preference) and more pigmented.
I'm so impressed and will continue to purchase.

Concealers -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

I've been using this concealer since I first discovered it this past summer, and it's quickly become my favourite every day concealer. The coverage is a bit sheer so sometimes I have to layer it with another concealer or a color corrector underneath if my dark circles are particularly bad that day. It's lightweight, blends beautifully, and holds up really well. Never cakes or accentuates fine lines, just really flattering light coverage that brightens up under the eyes. Love it. It may be worth mentioning, however, that around the time this concealer launched, I watched tons of reviews on this concealer, and there were a few beauty gurus who claimed this burned under their eyes. I did not experience anything of the sort....apparently there is alcohol in the formula which is probably what causes the irritation for some people...so if you have sensitive skin or eyes that's something you should be aware of. Another thing worth mentioning is the color range is really lame. I use the fair shade and it's pretty dark. I strongly suggest you use one shade lighter than you normally would....and if you're super fair-sorry there's nothing here for you...😢

Treatments (Face) -Ren -Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

on 1/15/2018 12:34:00 PM

Pros:
- lasts you quite a while, I use around 3 full pumps of this and that is more than enough to drench my entire face and it still lasted me around a couple months (with 1 use/week)
- smells nice
- fancy ingredients on bottle makes it sound pretty convincing

Cons:
-if you get it in your hair it's over
-don't really see significant change in my skin -- didn't make it softer necessarily or glow, even though I was told by an employee @ Sephora that Beyonce uses this mask (to be verified)
-I find that 8/10 times after I use this mask a new pimple will magically appear on my face the next day

I've repurchased this twice on wishful thinking that it will change my skin (I am an avid believer in glowy skin) but I've decided to let this go. Will look into other REN products though!

This product is AMAZING! Looks so natural and fresh on face with a nice glow. What else can I say?

The color range is very poor... I use the color 02 Clair for my NC25 skin and it is a little too light. I use 2-3 pumps of Nars Laguna Liquid bronzer to get a better color match and it works great!


Misc Beauty Tools -Chanel -Compact Mirror

This lives in my purse for touch ups. My MAC mirror lives on my vanity if that’s saying anything. They are both chic but I like the chanel mirror much better. It’s slim & feels luxe. It was $42 (eep!) but a mirror is something ev woman should have I agree unless you don’t wear MU. I lost the velvet case but pulling this out makes me feel super bourgeois like I’m a real lady. Nothing tacky about this mirror. Lights are kind of tacky.

I don't have dry skin, I have very oily skin that can get easily dehydrated in the cold Canadian winter wind and post-exfoliation. It goes on light and gel-like. It doesn't really feel as moisturising or refreshing as I had expected, I don't know if it's really working that well. My skin didn't feel 'refreshed' or anything. If I used it every night I get break outs, but to be fair the instructions say to only use once per week. Overall, I am underwhelmed. I've had better results with much cheaper products.

I wouldn't buy it again.

This serum is quite rich. I only need 1 pump for my whole face it really hydrate my skin after use. It give a little sticky feel and shine but I top with moisturizer and loose powder.
