Deodorants -Biotherm - Deo Pure Fresh Antiperspirant Gel

Great deodorant! It really works, which is good because it's expensive. It's $21 CDN and works well, no white marks, dries pretty good. I have had stubborn "problems" lets say and this helped a lot.
Smashbox brushes are awesome, and this is one of my favorites to use in the crease. You can get a really defined look without looking heavy, or build up the intensity of the shadow with this brush, making it look very professional. Their hair is very good too. I think they farm their own animals and use their hair in a way that is not harmful to the animal, so that gives you peace of mind that an animal is not being hurt for the sake of a brush!

Great cleanser! Shiseido has some of the best cleansers. This is a good one for oily skin. It deep cleanses and the skin feels so squeaky clean after!
Moisturizers -Shiseido - Pureness Moisturizing Emulsion

Too fluid for my taste and did not control oil well. The scent was nice though. However, I found it not really moisturizing enough. Maybe in the summer months.
Skincare - Face -La Roche Posay - Thermal Spring Water

This is a good pick me up during the day. It has many uses, but for me it's a makeup setter, mist in the day for refreshment, and I use it as an after shave to calm my redness and skin bumps from shaving. I initially bought it when my skin reacted badly to a toner, and it calmed down my skin and was soothing, helped calm the redness.
Deodorants -Biotherm - Day Control Natural Protect

I have had a lot of issues with sweating and I've used many anti-perspirents and deodorants with limited success. This is an effective deodorant that stops perspiration for the most part. It has worked for me which is a god send! It has natural ingredients, so it seems to be gentle, yet effective.
I love this product! I use it alone or under foundation. I get oily throughout the day and this does the trick to stop oil when I blot it on.
Wow! This product surprised me! I'm not even a big fan of Bourjois to be honest, but a friend gave me this. I like the matte mousse foundations. I also got the brush which you have to buy in addition to this foundation for best results. The brush is a kabuki type brush that you can smooth this product on for a flawless airbrush effect! I love it. It helped control my somewhat oily skin and slight breakout (I wouldn't recommend this for someone with a lot of acne though as it might look drying). Definitely love this foundation! Price isn't too bad either!
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Ideal Light Brush-On Illuminator

I don't need a ton of coverage under my eyes, so this is a nice highlighter/brightener. It helps hide the dark circles I do have good enough so I don't need a full on coverage concealer. I like the light reflecting qualities, and the brush is nice, packing is nice too. Elegant.
This is a great bronzer! Very big at 21g! Good price ($40 CDN). It is a nice non orangy bronze. Will repurchase!
Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder - Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator

The ceramic tip is very cool (literally) and a good feature, but I didn't enjoy the eye cream as much. it did brighten, but too much comes out at once, wasting a lot of product. It's overpriced for what it is.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator

This promises more even toned skin in just two weeks. This includes redness, acne scars, discolorations, etc. The thing about this product is that it VISUALLY improves the look of skin but there is no repair. For that you'd need to use the other Idealist Pore Minimizing Serum, or another product. If you want a product to diminish the appearance then this would be okay, but I find the radiance it imparts does not last long.
I really love Alien and Angel has grown on me, so I was excited to hear about a new Thierry Mugler scent. I am so disappointed in Womanity though. It is just icky! It reminds me of bug spray. At first it smells nice then that strong sour note hits and it's over for me. I can't get past it.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer

I would almost say this is my HG concealer, but that honor belongs to Guerlain's Duo Correcteur (Which is disc... so this might take its place). This is a nice creamy concealer that sets pretty quick and gives good coverage. I use it on my redness, under eyes, and it works well. I think the lasting powder is pretty good and it has a nice matte slight satin finish.
Cleansers -Lancome - Pure Focus Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel

Not too happy with this cleanser. It was kind of drying and irritating. My skin can be oily but this was too much for it apparently!!
