I got this from a free sample, and after a day of wearing it everyone said "Oh my goodness did you came from a spa??!!" I was showered with compliments on how much I look good with this foundation. Like what it promised, natural skin, blends well and matte. But unfortunately after a week of use, it broke me out. This was probably the only foundation that gives a natural finish.
I use this concealer on the bridge of my nose, my cheekbones, corner of my eye and my eyebrows. It is a very versatile product, which is a must have for every person out there. It instantly gives you a healthy glow. It could also be used as a concealer to conceal imperfections, but it only has light to medium coverage, which is good because it wouldn't look obvious.
I would definitely buy this again for my body. Sure, it dries my skin a bit but that's what moisturer comes in. The smell is wonderful and very springtime. I would definitely buy this product again.
I remember using this last year, desperately finding the right oil for my face and reversing the dammage tea tree did to me. It was PURE steaming pile of cow doo. After using it my skin felt very itchy and the next morning, bam worst skin in my entire life. It took me a year to cure the acne (thank god for Lacura skincare). Even to this day I still have many extremely dark blemishes that I am desperately trying to hide. Every morning it takes me approximately 1 hour to 1 and a half to fully cover the blemishes with concealer and foundation. A waste of money because I never wear makeup.

If the company starbucks reads these good reviews they are definitely gona sell the napkins. LOL. Funny how something this good is for free, I have used many blotting paper brands, Bench (yes they make bench oil blotters), Clean and Clear, etc. But this is the best thing that keeps oilies under control. I find that the more I blot the lesser acne I have.

I bought this at sobeys hoping that it would moisturize my skin after taking a shower, and well IT DID! I used to use Aveen daily moisturizer but it gave me ringworm, its a circular rash on the skin not really a worm. Best body moisturizer for me!
Warning if you apply too much of it you will look like a cupcake. The powder is not finely milled so if you use too much of it it will look obvious. I use it when I am in a hurry to school and it adds a slight glow to my skin. It has light refracting pigments that makes you look younger. For me I wouldnt use this for special ocassions because it is a bit cheap.
I had a sample of this and it ssmelled so nice, good for morning after waking up with your lover XD. It's sooo nice, but the smell is quite strong when you put too much. I always dab a drop of it on my wrist and apply it on my chest and neck.
I bought so many scrubs and nothing could compare to this. I find that scrubs have large size granules that really irritates the skin. With salt you could actually make the granules smaller, depending on what you like, by stirring it with water until some of it dissolves. The exfoliating effect is sooo natural, I use this one a week with honey and a bit of water.
I don't get why yhis is getting a lot of bad reviews, but it cured my chappy lips. After cleansing, putting eye cream, serum then moisturizer I use this at night as a way to end my night routine. It is fairly pigmented so it makes my lips look like I ate cherry ice pop.
This stuff destroys skin, I have used it and it gave me new breakouts, oily skin, dry parts. Probably the worst that it caused me was Very Oily skin, you could scrape some and put it on a frying pan. That's how oily it was. This serioly is bad for you, the ingredients bleaches skin and destroys elastin and collagen. In adittion, it leaves your skin sensitive to the sun! One time I was running in the morning and came back to my house, everyone was shocked to see me. I thought they were staring in awe, so I strutted my stuff looking ever so confident until i look at the mirror. My face was ANGRY RED!
I would definitely buy this again...... well... ofr lemonade but that's it. The first time I used lemon, it gave me a healthy ootherworldly glow, but it doesnt last very long. The juice instantly tightens your pores makes blemishes lighter.

Saw this on MUA's top picks and I just had to buy it from my nearest Shoppers Drugmart. After using it my skin felt soooo moisturized, soft and supple. After showering I always touch and feel how soft my skin is. But after a week it gace me pimples on my legs PIMPLES!!! I never get breakouts anywhere in my body except the face, Totally hated it, gave it to my bestfriend, he loved it.
I bought this with the 24/7 concealer. It was the ctest thing ever, but unfortunately I had to return it because the concealer sucked really bad and I have no use for this. But if I do hav a over sized eye liner or concealer I would definitely buy this again.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

Honestly i hate giving bad reviews because it really tarnishes the mood and the reputation of a product. Upon aplication, I admired the matte look it gave me............ for like 20 minutes. I know narcissistic right? But after one day it gave me tiny little bumps between my eyebrows, my chin and cheeks. Maybelline stick with concealers please.
