I got this product from my local dollarama (I'll give anything a try for a dollar) and it's not bad. It's definitely not the best mascara out there but I'm finding I like it for days where I don't want to wear a lot of eye makeup (or no other eye makeup at all) It gives a natural definition, volume and it does lengthen, just not anything too dramatic.
I love this stuff, I've been using it for a few days and it's so easy to work with and amazing quality for the price. Granted I've never tried a "high end" eyeliner of any kind, the only other eyeliner of this assortment I've tried is by wet n' wild, other than that I've just used drugstore liquid and pencil liners, but this is quickly becoming my favorite!
I love this bronzer. It's probably the only bronzer I've ever used up as quickly as this one. Granted, it was a smaller size than the original product as it was in a too faced palette with pink leopard and candy leopard. I used it every day since I got it, all over my face where the sun would hit and I loved it. It has a perfect amount of shimmer (mostly matte) and the peach colour really brightened up my fair complexion. I'm really sad that it's all gone though because I'm not sure if I can shell out $30 just for a bronzer.
I got this product in a monthly sample subscription box. I do like the way that it makes my eyelashes look, and my boyfriend thought that I was actually wearing false lashes. However, I can get similar results with covergirl lash blast, or loreal voluminous false fiber lashes for a fraction of the price. This stuff is also horribly difficult to remove which I am not at all a fan of.

I am in love with this perfume. When first sprayed, it smells a little too strong for my liking but the dry down is delicious, like everyone else has stated: vanilla, caramel dessert heaven. On me it leans a little more on the caramel brown sugar side than vanilla but I love it. Definitely the best 19.99 (shoppers drug mart) perfume purchase ever made, and the bottle is huge!
I hate this lip gloss. For something called "hypershine" it hardly gives any shine to your lips at all (I have tried 4 of them). They are a thick, sticky mess, with a useless brush applicator that makes it hard to use on the go. I was excited to find these because no where around me that I live really sells elf products, but they are a huge let down.

I love this colour when I first put it on. It's so easy to apply in just one coat. The colour is true to the bottle (at first) and wears great. The only problem that I have with it is if you wear it for more than a week or so (I do this on my toes often) the colour gets darker over time.

I wanted to love this, but it is definitely not for oily, or even combination skin. Every time I tried to use it, my skin broke out.. If I took a break from it, it cleared up a little bit and so goes the cycle so I had to give it away. I did like the finish this gave when I first put it on, especially when set with a powder. It's too bad that this didn't work out for me, but I think it would suit those with dry , non-acne prone skin a lot better.

I wanted this so incredibly badly after reading all the reviews and couldn't find it where I live, so I got a friend to get it for me and ship it and sadly, even though I've had it for almost 6 months I have barely used it at all. The colours just don't seem to work as well for me as I thought they would- maybe I need to play around with it a little bit more. The quality though, is fantastic as always with wet n' wild shadows, and like people said below they are very comparable to the consistency of urban decay shadows for sure.
I love this colour, it has to be my absolute favourite lip stick because the colour is really flattering, goes with everything, brightens my face and the formula is really nice too. It's not drying or anything and lasts a long enough time.
Like reviewers below, I also got this on sale at shoppers drug mart for $20. The reason this perfume caught my attention when it first came out was that the bottle was the cutest perfume design I've ever seen... I have an imitation katy perry perfume (very cheap) but it doesn't even come close to this. Shoppers didn't have a tester bottle out, but I bought it anyway and I love this scent! It reminds me a little bit of taylor swift wonderstruck which I also have and love (not exactly, but along the same lines of the notes in it-- fruity, sweet, underlying musky scent) It's great!
I got this in a deluxe (very deluxe) size free promotion from sephora with an online order, and I LOVE it! I've never owned anything from bare escentuals, or a buxom lip gloss and I'm pretty impressed. The colour is neutral and good for every day use and the finish is nice and glossy, but not glittery which I love. It has a very cooling sensation which is not my favourite, but I can deal with it because I love the colour and how it makes my lips look. The packaging is really cute too :)
I am absolutely in love with this palette. My boyfriend got it for me for my birthday, and I am so happy he did. I have the original naked palette, which for me is great for more dramatic neutral looks (I have very pale skin, blue eyes, and brown hair) but this palette is PERFECT for me for everyday use. I love taupes, and greys and everything that this palette has to offer. I can already tell that it is going to be my absolute favourite palette of all time.
I love this for shaving my legs. It's better than any shaving cream I've tried and my skin is always soft and smooth with no irritation. If I ever ran out of handmade soaps and such I would use this as a body wash also- and sometimes I do when I feel like it. I love this soap and always have since I was little. It smells fresh and clean, leaves you feeling nice and soft, and works well.
I used this in the 5% strength, and while it worked pretty well to dry up/eliminate existing acne and stopped new acne from coming through (did nothing for acne scars-not sure if it's supposed to)... I think I'm actually allergic to benzyl peroxide... because whenever I used it, my entire neck got extremely, extremely itchy (when I did NOT put the product on my neck). For those of you who don't experience this reaction, this is a great product... but for me, the benefits don't outweigh the horrible itching that occurred for me.
