Moisturizers -Lancome - Pure Focus Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion

This is discontinued now (at least in Canada). You need to have really oily skin to use it. I thought I was oily, but this dried out my skin way too much and was irritating.
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Lotion

This is a really great product! I'm not out in the sun a lot, so a SPF 15 is perfect for me. If I need more, I'll wear a SPF 60 from La Roche Posay on top. This has the best cucumber scent and makes your skin feel fresh and moisturized. I like the lotion because my skin can be oilier and I prefer products with a pump as it is more hygenic. This is a great product for a great price too!
This has a nice semi matte foundation with good lasting coverage. I like the color selection, I'm 3N1. It has decent coverage but doesn't look heavy on my skin.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I really like this foundation! My skin can be oily and this is a nice foundation to control oil. It has a nice matte finish and blends well, looks natural. I'm Intensity 3.0. It comes in a tube which is nice so you can use up all the product easily.
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum

I really like this fragrance. If you like roses, you will love this fragrance. It's very floral but it's interesting. It's strong but not overpowering. It exudes sexiness and it's very sensual. A nice feminine fragrance that is interesting.
There's no arguing that this is a very expensive product. It's kind of like a skin booster. After continued use I noticed my skin was more radiant and even toned. It just looked better. When I stopped using it though, my skin stopped being radiant etc. I use different products but this one was pretty good. I don't like the applicator ampoule. It doesn't distribute much product and as someone pointed out, it doesn't help to push air into the formula as I'm sure that compromises it. I've tried better serums to be honest.
This is a good night cream from Lancome. Reasonably priced too for a night cream at $65 CDN. It deeply moisturizes and optimizes the effects of nighttime repair on my skin. I still like Hydra Zen Night better but this would be one I would definitely use if I couldn't get the Hydra Zen.
Very similar to NARS Orgasm...very nice. It's a newer shade which is good, because Lancome blush needed a new shade. It's kind of a coral-type pink that gives a nice flush of color to the cheeks!
This is a really great everyday blush! It is a nice nude brownish pink blush with a slight shimmer. It is just beautiful for a nice natural blush, or paired with a strong lip or eye look. Or just good to wear everyday with a minimal look!
This is a really nourishing lip balm that also works as a primer. My lips have never been so satisfied as they are when I use this product. They feel so moist and conditioned. I love this product, even just to use on it's own as a lip balm.
I like this eyeliner a lot. It is creamy and soft and smooth, so it glides easily. You can build up the color nicely. There's a good range of shades too. The smudger on the end is great and it comes with a pencil sharpener!
This is a nice fragrance. There's nothing to it though, that makes it unique. But it's a nice basic floral scent, unoffensive. It's fresh with apple notes and has a nice sandalwood base.
Misc Beauty Tools -Lise Watier - Makeup Brush Cleaner

This is a great brush cleaner! It dries so quickly and cleans and disinfects my brushes really well. I like the Cover FX brush cleaner for a deeper clean, but this does the trick if I want my brushes to dry quicker!
This is my HG brush cleaner. It sanitizes my brushes for a deep clean! Smells good too! Does the trick and it's a good value too!
PROS: Great scent, effective, not harsh on skin. The granules are fine and exfoliate the skin well without being harsh. Natural ingredients. CONS: Size and price. $26 CDN for a 40mL tube is a lot considering you can get other exfoliating scrubs for about the same or a bit more and get much more. However, due to its consistency, I don't need to use a lot, so I am sure it will last me a while.
