Price: $56.00 CAD Finish: natural sheen Coverage: solid medium Oil-control: 6-8h Texture: thick This feels really thick and moisturising going on. Never feels 'dry' after setting. The sheen it gives off doesn't look greasy on my T-zone. I barely need a concealer for my under eye area on a good day. You'll still need concealer for acne and hyperpigmentation.
LOVE this! This is perfection. Price: $67 Colours Foxy: matte yellow-cream Half-Baked: metallic gold Bootycall: shimmery pale champagne Chopper: metallic rose-gold Tease: matte medium rosy taupe Snakebite: glittery bronze Suspect: shimmery pale gold Pistol: shimmery medium grey Verve: light sparkly greige YDK: glittery plummy brown Busted: satin mahogany brown Blackout: matte black Texture: buttery These are all wonderfully pigmented and last at least 10h even without primer on my oily lids. All shades are super pigmented and very easy to work with. Definitely worth the money and hype!! <3
This is another one of MAC's famous ones and guess what: The hype is worth it. Price: $16 CAD Colour: true golden brown Finish: metallic Pigmentation: full Texture: buttery This is such a lovely colour. This looks totally gorgeous with Melon pigment in the centre and Antiqued in the crease! It's a dupe for UD Half Baked, if that's any incentive
A lovely plummy colour! Price: $16 CAD Colour: midtone plummy brown Finish: soft shimmer with coppery sheen Pigmentation: medium Texture: buttery This is a lovely colour for brown and green eyes for it has both purple and coppery undertones I love pairing this with champagne or light-ish gold colours for a subtle day time smokey looks.
Got it in Snowglobe Eyeshadow Palette- Warm Colour: medium browned taupe Finish: slightly metallic frost Texture: buttery Pigmentation: medium This is basically a little sister of the infamous Satin Taupe (which I adore to bits) but browner and less dramatic. Doesn't show up much on my skin tone unless I've got a strong base.
I LOVE IT<3 x gazillion!! Price: $27 CAD Colour:(dry) maroony brown with aqua&mint green reflects | (wet) dark maroon-brown/aqua and teal reflects Finish: frosty Texture: creamy When blended out, it turns a purple-maroon with teal sheen. I love using this on my crease&outer V or (sometimes) all over for a dramatic look. Since it's a duochrome different colours show on diff base colours: • Charcoal- electric teal with hints of maroon •Silver- smokey brown/turquoise •Brown- maroon with hints of aqua •Maybelline Color Tattoo 'Tenacious Teal'- teal/chocolate brown Dramatic yet versatile enough for daytime Try it! I dare u ;)
I just love duochromes! Price: $16 CAD Colour: olive green/khaki dirty brown Finish: pearlescent Texture: buttery Pigmentation: full I effing love this shade! it's a super easy way to add a hit of colour to your everyday eye makeup. A must have for everyone, esp for hazel eyes or brown :D Seriously, go buy it, you won't regret it
A fantastic primer/base Price: $23 CAD Colour: light gold Finish: iridescent shimmer Texture: buttery smooth This dries to a powdery finish in a flash! Crease-free for the entire day and is waterproof and smudge proof. I use this pretty much every day all over the lid with a crease colour black gel liner. Since it's a gold (peachy on fairer skin) anyone can wear this! Melon pigment is a touch darker and Tweet Me (which I own) from the Peacock Collection is a powder version of this. Get it, love at first wear guaranteed! <3
Perfect neutral base fir all!! Price: $24 CAD Colour: light peachy beige Finish: crème Pigmentation: medium Texture: buttery The peachy colour of Painterly cancels out discolouration on my lids. Keeps eyeshadows crease-free all day and makes them look more vibrant. A must have for medium skin toned ladies
Definitely worth the hype! Price: $15 CAD Colour: silvery taupe with lavender overtone Finish: metallic frost Texture: smooth I really love this. I totally get the hype about this fantastic colour! You can dress it down with neutrals or glam up with smoky shades <3 it looks even prettier when paired with purples and silvers. A must have for any MACkies and taupe lovers!
Seriously underrated shade!! Price: $15 CAD Colour: pure dark copper Finish: pearlescent with golden sheen; slightly metallic Pigmentation: medium to full Texture: buttery In a very short time, it's become my all time fave colour! It's so versatile and wearable! I lice wearing this in the crease with any warm colours on the lid. <3
Hands down one of the most beautiful eyeshadows I've ever tried! Also my first NARS purchase. Price: $45 CAD Colours: dark bronzy brown and blackened chocolate brown; both with golden shimmer Texture: super buttery smooth Pigmentation: very concentrated It's packaged in a rubberized compact with a decently sized mirror. While the $40 price tag looks intimidating, it costs less per ounce when compared to MAC or UD (amarixe.com has a great comparison). Also, you only need a dab since it's beautifully pigmented! Lovely with the lighter shade all over the lid (for the medium to darker skinned ladies) with darker shade in outer V and along the lash line. Brilliant investment

Great everyday mascara! Price: $9 CAD Brush: curved rubber; think Maybelline Cat Eyes or Falsies Formula: dry-ish Length: medium Volume: buildable Overall, I don't find this as amazing as everyone on YT says. Just an average mascara that won't be replacing my beloved Maybelline Colossal :)

Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm
SimpleNSexy 3/8/2013 7:14:00 PM
I like how the drugstores are catching onto jumbo lip pencils :) Price: $8 CAD Texture: glossy balm Pigmentation: sheer; buildable I have Mauve and Plum, both of which are very pigmented and applies beautifully. Mauve one is only a shade or two darker than my lips so I like plum better. It's initially sheer but buildable. Not as opaque as Revlon staining balms though. I prefer Revlon for lip prosucts any day
