Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation
2010 8/17/2012 2:17:00 PM
This is a pretty great foundation. The only problem I have with it is that the colours are (for once) too yellow for my skin so it looks a bit off. However, it covers well, lasts for a decent amount of time and was relatively inexpensive for such a great foundation (I paid ( I think) 10-12 pounds and it sells for $30 in Canada)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
2010 8/12/2012 10:14:00 PM
The colours in this palette are very pigmented. The only problem I have with it is that the colour on the very bottom (on the right) broke and I didn't drop the palette:( I wouldn't repurchase only because the shades don't suit me that well (the left side does, but the right side does not).
I'm not sure if I would repurchase this product - it doesn't remove all of my make up (and I don't wear waterproof eye mu). However, it does remove most of and it doesn't bother my eyes. Out of every DS eye mu remover I've tried, it's the best one so far though.
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Oatmeal N' Honey Natural Facial Scrub
2010 8/8/2012 8:09:00 PM
I loved the smell of this scrub, but I don't feel like it did much for my skin. Left a bit of a residue on my skin so would not repurchase.
When I bought this blush, it was already broken - but it was the last one on the shelf and Sleek isn't sold in Canada. The pigmentation of this blush is AMAZING! I only need to apply a bit since I'm afraid of it giving me a "sunburned" look. I want to order more in the near future since they have awesome pigmentation and I love the bright colours.
Not sure that I'm loving the colour of this.... it's a weird grayish-taupe colour to me, I don't think it flatters my blue eyes that well. The pigmentation, however, is awesome. I use the Essence eyeliner brush to apply and it stays put all day.
Cleansers -Simple - Kind to Skin Refreshing Wash Gel
2010 8/5/2012 10:09:00 PM
Really liking this product. I used up the travel sized sample I had of it and went out and bought the full size since I liked it so much. It leaves my skin feeling very clean, has a very minimal fragrance (I find this helps my sensitive skin) and doesn't seem to be making me breakout.
I didn't think this mascara was too bad. It separates my lashes really well and gives me some volume - but no length. However, this effect does not last the entire day (still searching for a mascara that does) and did irritate my eyes because of the flaking.
Lip Treatments -Aveeno - Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF 15
2010 8/5/2012 7:19:00 PM
I got this product for free through a livingwell promo, plus I've gotten a few tubes from friends etc. I love the smell, first off - the typical "Aveeno" scent that I love. This chapstick doesn't moisturize me lips as well as I would hope so for that reason I wouldn't repurchase.
I received this from Glossybox which costs me $15 / month so the price was good. But, if I were to repurchase this it would cost me $16 which is pretty expensive for a shampoo (by my standards)... First off, I love the smell! I'm really picky with how my shampoos smell and this one smells delicious to me (it's kinda flowery I guess but not in a cheap Herbal Essences kind of way.) It leaves my hair super soft and does give me volume. My hair never has volume unless I use this. The only downside is that it's a bit drying and gives me dandruff if I use it everyday. (I have oily roots and dry ends) Overall I would still repurchase because it leaves my hair feeling clean and leaves it smelling fresh.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray
2010 8/2/2012 10:48:00 AM
I'm surprised at how well this product works for me! I have pretty oily skin (tzone area) and my makeup tends to be completely gone by the time I go to wash it off. However, I've noticed now that I've started using this when I apply my makeup, I seem to have a lot more makeup left on my skin at the end of the day...
Cleansers -Biore - Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser
2010 6/29/2012 4:38:00 PM
This product is too thick for my skin and it did burn my skin. I don't feel like it did anything positive for my skin and instead felt like it left residue on my skin. I have acne prone skin that is sensitive and the exfoliating part was a bit to abrasive on my skin.Would not repurchase.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
2010 6/29/2012 2:49:00 PM
I picked this up in the light shade in England for about 7 pounds. I don't think this product is available in Canada yet. The colour is too dark/ orangey for my skin IMO. It is also too greasy and gives my skin far too much shine. It does have a decent amount of coverage though. I will not repurchase. Update: It's not as bad as it was when I first tried it. I still wouldn't repurchase but I would recommend this to those who want light coverage and have dry skin.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotion
2010 6/4/2012 3:42:00 PM
I bought this in 2010 and loved the scent. So, in December 2011 I went and bought the lotion, cream and body wash thinking that it would smell just as good as it did in 2010. Needless to say, the scent is absolutely disgusting. It smells nothing like the VBN I purchased in 2010. The scent is just plasticky and gross. Will not repurchase.
When I bought this, the lighting in the store was so poor that I couldn't tell that it was this fuschia. I have pale, yellow undertoned skin and I find this really doesn't work well with my skintone. Whenever I wear it, I really have to put on the smallest amount and sheer it out or its too overpowering for me.
