I have this in "screen siren" and I absolutely love it. This shade is a deep red colour that goes on almost like a lipstick. I got it from ebeauty.ca for $30, and I love it for special occasions. I feel like lipstick looks too old-fashioned on me, so this gloss is perfect for when I want a bold, red lip. I can't say much for the plumping effects...I didn't really notice anything dramatic, but the colour and coverage is great and it lasts a long time for a gloss.
I bought it from ebeauty.ca for about $17. This is a really good product to simplify your everyday makeup. I have the "minor crisis" shade, which is a girly, rosy pink, and it looks lovely as a lip colour or cheek colour. It's great if you want something that looks natural, but better!
I LOVE this gloss. The formula is great..long-lasting and not too sticky, but what makes this stand out is the colour. It's sheer but still bright red so it's perfect for when you want a dramatic, polished lip that's not too overdone. I got it from ebeauty.ca for $16, so the price is right too. The built-in brush applicator is alright...not my favourite way to apply lip gloss but it's not a big deal.
This is one of the best lipsticks I've ever tried. The colour goes on so smooth and it doesn't dry out my lips, plus it lasts a long time without flaking or looking sloppy. I rarely wear lipstick because it never lasts longer than 10 minutes on me but this the exception. It's good value too...I got it from ebeauty.ca for $16, which is a great deal for such a stellar product.
Moisturizers -Stila - STILA SHEER COLOR TINTED MOISTURIZER

This tinted moisturizer is perfect for my skin. I don't have a ton of imperfections, and this just evens out my skin without looking fake or pasty, and it stays moisturized without being greasy. I got it from ebeauty.ca for $45, which I think is worth it for the results (especially since I would mix foundation and moisturizer, which was way more expensive). Overall this is a great product for someone who doesn't want a lot of coverage but to still look polished.
Stila eyeshadow (specifically the espresso shade) is my new favourite! I got it from ebeauty.ca for around $25, which is a fair amount more than my usual brand but I love the colour and it had lasted quite awhile. A little bit really does go a long way, and it blends really easily. The espresso shade is perfect for a neutral look that's just a tad dramatic. Love!
Hair Styling Tools -Ted Gibson - Professional Flat Iron Model 1089

This iron works great, the high heat setting straightens my hair very fast and it stays straight until I wash it again. I also use it to add waves to my hair and they last a really long time even if I don't use hairspray. It got this iron for $192.50 from ebeauty.ca and I see myself using it for a long time so it's definitely worth it.
Conditioner -Ted Gibson - Individual Color Captivating Copper
MaddieEvans 1/4/2012 2:18:00 PM
I've tried both the shampoo and conditioner and they are both fantastic. It's pricey (I got the 10oz bottle for $27.50 from ebeauty.ca) but the results are definitely worth it, I don't think I've ever felt that way about a shampoo before. But it makes my hair so shiny and vibrant and soft. It's great for hair that's dyed red because that colour can fade so quickly, like in just a couple washes, and these products really help maintain that bright shade for longer.
Lotions/ Creams -Lavanila - The Healthy Baby Butter
MaddieEvans 1/3/2012 3:43:00 PM
I wanted to try this product because I have very sensitive skin, and this stuff worked like a charm. It leaves my skin really smooth and soft, and I love that is has natural ingredients. I got it for $15 from ebeauty.ca, so it's a good price and it moisturizes my skin as well as the stuff I was using from lush which is like twice the price.
Fragrances -Lavanila - Vanilla Grapefruit ROLLER BALL
MaddieEvans 1/3/2012 2:45:00 PM
I tried this fragrance because I love citrus and vanilla, and this scent does not disappoint. It's very fresh and girly but not too sugary sweet. I bought it from ebeauty.ca for $20 so it's super affordable, and I like the simplicity a lot more than more big-name designer perfumes.
Lip Gloss -Lavanila - HEALTHY LIP SHINE - Pure Vanilla
MaddieEvans 1/3/2012 2:28:00 PM
I absolutely love this gloss. I don't usually wear a lot of stuff on my lips so I stick to sheer gloss or lip balm, and this stuff is perfect. The most unique thing about it is the smell and taste--it really smells amazing and tastes great too (not that you should eat it). The ingredients are also pretty natural and chemical free, and it doesn't dry out my lips.
This face scrub smells amazing! It has a lot of natural, plant-based ingredients so it smells very fresh, fruity and citrusy and it doesn't irritate sensitive areas on my skin. I use it every day and I've noticed my complexion is a lot smoother and brighter. It is expensive (I bought it from eBeauty.ca for about $50) but it's one of the only face scrubs I've tried that gets rid of dead and dry skin while still being gentle.
This palette is absolutely gorgeous and it's really easy to mix and match. It's great for dramatic, "going out" makeup, which is what it's supposed to be for. I hate it when palettes advertise themselves as dramatic or colourful and don't deliver, but this one makes it easy to add a lot of colour to your look. I bought it for $45 from ebeauty.ca, which is a great deal considering how many different colours you get!
This blush is incredibly flattering. I tried it because of the reviews, since the colour in the tin didn't look like something I would wear, but now I'm hooked! I bought it from ebeauty.ca for $26, and it was so worth it because you get a lot of product.
This blush is really warm and flattering and it totally wakes up my skin. It's not too harsh either, I just swirl my powder brush in it a few times, shake it off, and generously brush over my cheeks and it's the perfect amount if colour. I bought it from ebeauty.ca for $32, which is a tad pricy but the tin contains a fairly large amount.
