I like the Revlon LB's better than these...These are moisturizing but I do find the one I have to be a bit oily.
This was $18 + tax CDN which is very expensive for a lipstick imo. As much as I love the colour, I find the formula of Ablaze to be very drying. It is matte, which I expected but I did think it would be sightly less drying than it is, based on the reviews I read before purchasing. I purchased a Rimmel Kate lipstick in 110 which is similar but more red-toned and darker than Ablaze and it was only $5.
Love this highlighter! Tons of product and gives me a very sheer, glowy look! Paid $20 (incl. shipping) for it on Hautelook which was a pretty good deal. My only issue is that I find the packaging hard to open! I have to use tweezers to open it every time.
Love this scent! I find it smells more berry like than vanilla though. It doesn't last as long as I would like. It is pretty expensive (to me) too - $75 for the large bottle. I would definitely repurchase though.

These sell at Walmart Canada for about $11 regular price. I picked up Coral Tattoo a few weeks ago and I like it but I don't love it. I have to apply a few layers to get the colour to show up well. I find it's pretty drying too but after 2 layers it gets to be more gloss like and less dry. The colour tends to last me only 2 hours since most of it ends up on my coffee cup! It is a very pretty, bright colour though - great for spring!
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Rosemary Mint Shampoo

This is the best shampoo I have ever tried. We can't buy it in Canada, so I have to pick it up whenever I'm in the US. I'm very picky with shampoo scents. I hate the majority of them TBH but I love this one. It feels very fresh and clean. It leaves my hair feeling silky and soft, but unfortunately the smell doesn't stick around. The only con is that it does leave some build-up, but I just use Suave Daily shampoo to get rid of that every few days. The only thing is that I wish it had a pump. I bought the biggest bottle possible at WM and while some of the other kinds had pumps, this scent didn't.
Palettes -NYX - Dark Shadows Crimson Amulets Palette

** I got this palette in the September 2012 Glossy box Canada** :) This palette has 24 shadows in it, a mix of neutrals and brights. I found that some of the shadows were pigmented, but most were not. The blushes, however, are all very nicely pigmented (Especially the red). I find that they are a little hard to blend though. The palette also comes with a mini HD eyeshadow primer and a black eye liner. The liner is very liquidy and tends to smear on me. It is relatively pigmented. The primer worked quite well for me. There is also 4 lip glosses. none of which are pigmented (imo) unless you apply them in multiple layers. There is also a really nice highlighting powder that would work best for NC10 - NC 20 skintones. if you apply too much though it may turn you into a disco ball. The packaging itself is pretty bulky. But I like that they added a mirror to it. They also have pictures of three faces of looks from the movie which is a pretty neat idea. They have included 4 eyeshadow applicators with the palette, but I have not tried them. Overall, I do like the palette (Especially the blushes) but because the eyeshadows really lack in pigmentation (for the most part) and the fact that this is an LE product, I would not repurchase it.
I have these in the 2hour, 7 day type. I'm on day 6 of using these. I haven;t really noticed a huge difference with these - especially on my bottom teeth. They stick really well to my top teeth but not to my bottom teeth for some reason. My top teeth are definitely whiter but my bottom teeth aren't. I received these to test for free so the cost is not an issue for me.

Love these. Bought this at the suggestion of MUA and as usual, MUA didn't let me down. Leaves my skin super soft after I shower and helps my ingrown hairs. Will definitely purchase again in the future:)
Purchased for $10 CAD at Walmart. PROS: - really helps to brighten up my undereye area, around my nose - isn't as drying as other concealers I have used CONS: - does not last long (on me it lasts probably 2 -3 hours) - does crease (I have tried putting UDPP under it which seems to help)
Love this colour! Looks really nice on both my pale, white skin and my skin when it has a bit of a tan. Really brightens up my collection. Requires about 2 - 3 coats to make it opaque but I don't mind since it's such a pretty colour.
I have this in taupe and it works really well for me. The only drawback is that it's a little greasy and smudges a bit but I set it with clear brow gel and that seems to do the trick. I paid $3 for it which is a pretty good deal. Would most likely repurchase
I bought this to line my waterline but it just doesn't work. It's way too hard - it does not show up. I thought since it's a little bit of an off white colour that it would look better than a bright white but the formula is just way too hard and doesn't work well on either my actual skin or my waterline.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Romantic

Really love the colour of this. Brightens up my face nicely and you can apply as little or as much colour as you need. It lasts a decent amount of time (Anywhere from 2 - 4 hours). Will definitely repurchase this colour and other colours in the future.
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

Very much a MLBB colour on me. Gives me just a bit of extra colour to my lips but still looks natural. I paid $8 for this at WM (Canada). The only problem I have is that it doesn't last that long on me. However, I do tend to lick and bite my lips a lot so that probably doesn't help. ETA: I have not noticed any strange coloured stains on my lips.
