I work at SDM and took a class from a Cover FX rep. This product is amazing but needs to be used properly. You need a half a grain of rice to cover BOTH eyes. If you use too much it won't look good. And given that the amount product you get it will last forever, the price point is wonderful.

While I like the cleanliness of the pump, and the fact that this isn't a chemical sunscreen... It balls up horribly under my make-up. This will be saved for a non foundation day. I will stick with Clarins Day Screen.
Foundations -Cover FX - Mineral FX Pure Mineral Foundation SPF 15

So disappointed in this. I really like the Cover FX powder foundation (when my skin isn't dry) but this just irritated my skin. I was left red, itchy, patchy and irritated. A common trend for me with loose powder mineral foundations. The culprit I believe is the bismuth oxychloride. Also, the colours are supposed to be the same along the board with these products but that is not the case. The M40 in this was significantly darker and more orange than the M4 in the Powder FX.
This is such a hard one to review. I love the product. It blends so nicely and covers amazingly! That said, if your skin is the slightest bit dry, the motion used to buff this in and make it flawless just irritates the skin and causes it to look flakey and cakey. This is definitely one for people with combo or oily skin. I will revisit this in the summer when my face isn't so dry.
I have this in black. It is the best eye liner I have ever used. I have used it everyday for over 6 months and it's still going strong. I bought a back up and it's still in the box. The applicator tip is perfect! It doesn't splay and can make both thick or thin lines. Great for winged eyeliner too! A must have in my books!
This is one of my go to fragrances. The other being Dior Hypnotic Poison. The trend with both being a rich, sexy, slightly vanilla based fragrance. Its the kind of fragrance that warms you up. A comfort scent. I have even been known to spray it on before bed.
This is one of my go to scents. A toss up between Viva La Juicy. The trend is that they are both rich, sexy and vanilla based. I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea, but they dry down on me guaranteed a comment on how good I smell. A personal favourite for a long time to come!
There is definitely a trick to application. One fairly thick coat on freshly painted nail, no top coat. Waiting patiently will reveal such a treat. It reminds me of tiger/leopard print. I have worn this over Teenage Dream, Zoya Charla, and Essie Mint Candy Apple and have loved all variations!
I love this foundation! It's light and sheer and doesn't make you feel "made up". I do go for a heavier foundation if I want medium coverage, but this is buildable. As usual Mac offers a great array of shades with a yellow base. No pink or peach tones here. I am light to medium skin tone and I chose C3. A great match and I will purchase again.
Liquid -Clarins - True Radiance (Light Reflecting Oil-Free) [DISCONTINUED]

This is my go to foundation if I want a medium coverage. I use the colour Shell which works for times when I use a self tanner or go without. It goes on smooth and dries to a nice dewy finish. The colours that Clarins has are perfect for every skin tone. Yellow based, which most companies don't offer.
I love anything from the Moroccan oil line and this is the BEST deep conditioner I have ever tried. I use everything from the line from the curl cream to the serum and I swear by it all. The price point is high but considering I only use this once a week, it lasts a long time. If you have thick, dry, coloured hair this just might work for you. It does for me and it smells great too!

I love anything from the Moroccan oil line. I use everything from the line from the curl cream to the serum and I swear by it all. The price point is high but considering I only wash my hair twice a week (and only leave it curly every so often) it lasts a long time. If you have thick, dry, coloured hair this just might work for you. It does for me and it smells great too!

Purchase again? Yes. Yes. And yes. This stuff is a miracle with a doe foot applicator! You only need a little amount otherwise blending can be difficult. It helps all glittery loose shadows adhere to the eye. Everything from Lise Watier loose eye shadows to Mac pigments. Good work Fyrinnae!
This is one of Mac's underrated lipsticks in my opinion. Its the perfect nude for me. My lips but better. My other favourite is Creme D'Nude for a more washed out look.
