LOVE this cream shadow! It is so beautiful. I wear it on my lids when I am going for a natural/neutral look, sometimes i layer shadows over it.. but it is SO beautiful on its own.. I am in love!
Perfect barbie pink! A little drying, but nothing chapstick wont fix!
I love this lipstick for a nice nude lip. I had to deduct a lippie because I find it not to be opaque enough for my liking.
My absolute all time favorite M.A.C. red, ever! Nothing can beat it. The staying power is awesome, although I do hate the red "ring" it leaves around my lipline.. but i dont care, still a 5 out of 5 for me!
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Sore Pimple Gel

I love this product. It has an amazzzzing cooling sensation to it, and it soothes any pimple soreness. I notice my pimples are less red the next day, and don't hurt as bad. However, I had to deduct one lippie because of the smell.. it's terrible. I can't even explain it, but it's just terrible. It also "rolls" off my face and somehow makes its way into my mouth, which is very unpleasant. All in all, I would definitely buy it again.
I work at a spa, and I had one of the girls who works with me put this on my nails.. and i am in LOVE! I am going to buy it as soon as i get my hands on it next. amazing colour, subtle sparkles.. just love it!

At first, I LOVED this product. I did the 7 day challenge. It worked wonders for me and it cleared my skin up in about a week, maybe a bit less. So i decided to buy a travel-sized tube... rip off. It completely broke me out, dried up my skin and left my skin with flakey patches. I only applied it at night, and i was very very unhappy with the results the second time around. I loved the scent though, and the texture of the product is very nice. It made my skin a bit oily though, which is not what i want. I wouldnt repurchase.
I actually love this masque. I use it only in my tzone however, as it will dry out any other places i apply it. It has a nice tingle to it and the smell isnt TOO bad compared to other clay-based masques. It rids of all my oil and helps calm and soothe any break outs i may have. I love this product. However, it is so pricey. Thankfully i get a discount!
Oh Dermalogica.. you have failed me. :( I first bought this thinking it was amazing (only other time it was used on me before was during facials at school). But i soon realized it literally did.. nothing for my skin. Well ok, I lied, it DOES keep my oil at bay. Thats a very nice feeling. It also smells very appealing to me, and i like the texture of the product. I dont, however, feel like it moisturized my skin enough. Nor do i like the packaging. Hate having to twist off the cap every time i use it. And i HATE how expensive the small bottle is. Not worth it if you ask me. Wouldnt buy again.
Hate this product with a passion. I bought the Spectro Jel for blemish-prone skin.... TERRIBLE. "Deep cleans while protecting skin's natural moisture." What a joke. Not one word of that was true. It was like lathering foul-smelling... nothing on my face. It did NOT feel like it cleaned my skin AT ALL and it left a gross film on my face. Not to mention it stinks. So gross. Never everrrr will buy again.
I really like this product. I love the scent of it. Its so silky and smooth feeling when I use it. It is very gentle but it also helps keep everything under control. My only con is that it is sometimes difficult to rinse off. It is very thick, and i feel like it leaves a "slimy" film over my face once i am done with it.
Love love LOVE this toner. I have combination break-out prone skin, but for some reason my skin is very reactive to toners made for break-out prone skin or oily skin types. (Could be the alcohol? I dont know). But this toner is amazing. The scent is flawless, and it calms and soothes any redness or inflammation I may have. Its very gentle and light, and I mix it with witch hazel to take care of my breakouts. Perfection. Love the price, love the packaging, love the product.
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

I have been searching forever for a nice matte bronzer! Its hard to believe it was only $3 at walmart. It looks so natural and beautiful. Its not orange at all, it makes for a really nice contour, which is what i use it for. Only downside is the packaging, verrrryy cheap and opens easily in my purse. Love the product though. Will buy again.
This is an amazing product for being so cheap! I bought mine for around $2 canadian after running out of my $18 liquid eyeliner. What caught my eye was that the packaging of the NYC liner was exactly the same as my pricey liner. The brush is nice and small to make precise lines, and it doesnt burn my eyes. Only negative is I had to do a couple coats to get it opaque. Other than that, i love it! I will definitely repurchase.
I really liked this at first, however, the more I wore it, less I began to like it. It makes my lips look slightly "muddy" and I feel like the texture of the lipstick is way too heavy for me. It feels like I am literally slapping clay onto my lips, and that's kind of what it looks like. It is okay with a lipgloss over it, but I dislike it alone. I feel like the colour is a little off on me, and it doesnt look as good on me as it does on other people. I would NOT repurchase.
