This is the WORST mascara I have EVER used! I got a sample of this in my February 2013 Ipsy bag. I was super excited to try a new mascara. It went on beautifully and looked great! I go out for a few hours, get home, and to my horror, I had raccoon eyes, at least an inch and a half down my face. I was SO humiliated! I didn't even wear liner on my bottom lids, so I know this was the mascara. I've never had this happen to me before with any mascara. I wiped all the black off my under eyes, and not even an hour later, I had awful raccoon eyes again. I'm throwing this crap in the garbage. Don't buy this unless you feel like being publicly humiliated with the worst raccoon eyes known to man.
I only own this color in the color tattoos line, and I absolutely love it. It's a bit on the expensive side for drug store makeup, but you get quite a lot in that little glass jar. The color payoff is really good. It goes on really smoothly and blends so nicely!
Oh man, I LOVE this stuff. As someone who's hair gets a bit greasy annoyingly quickly, this stuff is a life saver. It's also a HUGE must-have on road trips :) My only problem is that for a small can, its usually around 10 dollars at Shoppers Drug Mart. I try to get mine from Winners.. its usually around half price.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

I got a sample sized tube of this in a swap, and I was pleasantly surprised! I have somewhat uneven skin, and my pores are pretty visible. This primer is really nice to use before you put on your foundation. It really smooths out the skin and leaves a nice surface to put your foundation on. I also found that it helped control oiliness as well. I will definitely be buying a full sized tube. At 30 bucks a pop, its pretty pricey.. but a little bit goes a LONG way. This tiny little tube will probably last me months!
I bought this mask in a pack of about 20 at T&T supermarket (Asian supermarket in Canada). This specific mask came with 2 packets. One with the mask, and one with the moisturizer for afterwards. The moisturizer was called "Snail repair cream", so I'm assuming it had some of that snail slime stuff in it haha. Anyways, the mask felt nice at first. Very cooling, although it didn't fit my face all that well. I left it on for about an hour, then removed it and massaged the remaining serum into my face. Once that was absorbed, I put on the Snail repair cream. It was VERY thick, and I knew right away this would make my skin very greasy. And I was definitely right. For the next few days, my face was an oil slick. I ended up using my Queen Helene Mint Julep masque in hopes it would absorb all this extra oil. If you have very dry skin, this may be the mask for you.. but those who have oily skin, steer clear!
I bought these masks in a pack of I think 20 at T&T Supermarket (Asian supermarket in Canada). They were around 1 dollar each I believe. This was the very first mask I've used.. I'm onto my third now. I'd say it would be my favourite. The mask itself is very cooling when you put it on. Unfortunately it didn't fit my face all that well, but I made it work! I left it on for about 45mins to an hour. Once I took it off, I massaged the serum into my skin, and it felt very soft and refreshed. Even the next following day, my skin was silky smooth. I didn't really see any of the 'whitening' qualities, which doesn't bother me, because I didn't want my skin to be whitened anyways. All in all, for the price, it's a good mask. I would buy it again.
Eye Makeup Remover -MAC - Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

Totally overpriced, BUT it was the only thing that could wipe off my waterproof liquid eyeliner. It takes some time to take mascara off.. but it does remove it eventually. The packaging is very sleek, and pink is pretty :)
As with posie tint, you must layer this like crazy on your lips in order to get any color. I tried it on the back of my hand before my cheeks.. and it doesnt matter how quickly you go to blend the dots in.. it just stays in little dots on my hand. Garbage product.
I received a sample of this in a swap. It's a cool concept.. but in order to get any color on my lips, I have to layer and layer and layer. And forget about cheeks. It blends away into nothing!
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I expected this to be super moisturizing.. as its a lip butter. But I found it to be quite drying actually. And the glitter makes for very gritty lips.. which I also don't like. This is definitely a MLBB shade. It LOOKS nice.. just doesn't feel nice. I paid 7 dollars for this at Walmart. I would probably buy more if they were a bit cheaper or on sale. Not worth 7 dollars though.
Such a gorgeous color! its kind of a coppery/brownish/pinkish color. It doesn't pick up too well on my brush.. but other than that, it's really nice!
Super pigmented color. Probably too dark for me to use on my entire lid. I love using this as my crease color. It blends really nicely!
I haven't really found that this product has done much for me or my boyfriend. Probably wouldn't buy it again..
This is a great moisturizer. I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about with the bad smell. It smells like a generic lotion.. and is a bit sticky and white at first. You really have to massage it in, then let it soak in. Once it has soaked in.. your skin is SO soft. I had some bumps on the back of my arms that are now gone. I use it on my legs after shaving as well, and they are no longer irritated. I'm hoping it will fade some old scars on my legs from folliculitis.. that has also cleared thanks to this lotion. I bought it at shoppers drug mart for 14 dollars. Apparently it is comparable to Am-Lactin.
I bought this at winners for 24 dollars, only because I absolutely fell in love with the bottle. My inner mermaid-loving child got the best of me. I wasn't even expecting to like the perfume.. I just loved the little mermaid on top. But turns out, the perfume is really nice! It's kind of citrusy mixed with some sort of floral scent. I really love it though! Super girly.
