Great eyebrow pencil. On my second one because it is the only blondish pencil that isn't warm in colour that I have found. Great stuff.
This has become my signiture scent. I know it sounds cliche but I am in love and so is everyone that smells it on me. STRONG smell so go easy on it. Warm and delish.
Stung my eyes and left me with breakouts. Not sure what this is really good for. I use to clean my brushes and to clean up makeup mistakes
I am going to keep the brush but the formula sucks the big one.
i have two shades that I mix for when I tan and when I am lighter in the winter. This stuff dries out my skin so that I have to mix a bit of moisturizer in with it. Oh, and you can see this foundation on the skin-sort of cakey. Not when you mix it tho. Colours are nice and yellow based for my slightly olive skin. Nice bottle with a tiny squeezy that gives just the right amount. I have given up on finding a perfect foundation as I do not believe there is one out there. It is your skin that makes all the difference in how your skin looks.
Does exactly what it claims. Even smoothed my boyfriends skin and razer burn bumps.
Great moisturizer for night AND under makeup. In my case I mix a little cream with my foundation for a sheer and glowy look. I am very impressed with "cold cream" as of late and have been using "Ponds" to remove my makeup instead of buying expensive oils from the health food store. Ponds is about $10 canadian. And the jar looks like it will last a good year or so. Avene is twice as expensive but I dont cleanse with it. Little goes a very long way. Very VERY impressed!
Fell in love..everyone gives me compliment too. it makes me feel cozy and feminine
Wow...better than the Joico. You need less and it smells way better. It is also thicker and feels like it is doing a better job when you slap it onto your head. I just have better results ( smoother, straighter, stronger). Wont be going back to Joico and will spend the extra few dollars on this. I feel like it will last longer anyhow.
Styling Products -Moroccanoil - Hydrating Styling Creme

HG! Using this stuff before and after my blowdry has taken my hair to a whole new level. I am still using protein on my hair which has saved my fine thin hair from a disastrous summer last year where I used sun-in and went boating in the sun for 2 weeks. Dumb I know:( So the hydrating styling cream has been a godsend for keeping my protein infused hair moisturizer, volumized and non greasy for up to 3 days after a wash. Not to mention my hair feels like satin and has a nice shiny strong look especially at the ends. I know this has to be working because I just received blonde highlights and I have not noticed any difference in the state of my hair. Usually my hair would look like poo about a week after the bleach. gO Get this!!!!
Concealers -Cover FX - Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer

I have bought two of these now so that I may always have a backup! This is the holy grail of concealers IMO. It is creamy and covers everything. The colors are funny however. Keep in mind that they look dark in the package but they blend out quite a bit lighter than you would expect. Basically they just look extra opaque when condensed into the tube. Love this stuff and will never be without it. I have it in shade medium and I am nc3 in MAC. UPDATE: oily MESS. The tube seperates constantly and I hate it. Good stuff but terrible packaging.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash mascara in brown/black

Great everyday mascara! I think I know why a lot of people are griping about it though. This has a tiny wand and applicator which is great for people with smaller features. I know it sounds strange but the big wands that I find in ALL the new mascara are WAY to big for my eyes. I end up with makeup all over my lids and forget about trying to use them on your lower lashes! All you have to do is layer this mascara. It wont flake or smudge throughout the day either. This is truly a great mascara for the price and availability. Be sure it isn't out of date and I'm certain the stinging and irritation that some women claim to have will not occur. Overall I think this is a wonderful mascara and it makes my lashes full and long without breaking the bank.
I have been using this for 2 years now and I am only on my second bottle. I like the light coverage but you must powder over it to make it last. You get a huge amount for your money. Best foundation for people that just want their skin to be even and dewy looking. Not suggested for acne as it doesn't cover near enough. The bottle tends to leak out of the top no matter how it is stored and use half of what you think you will need, as a little goes a long way. EDIT** I have stopped loving this. Since I have removed it from my regimen I have seen fewer breakouts (none to be exact), healthier skin and more evenness. I think my problem is that I have great skin to begin with and only need concealer here and there.
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor
ThinMinti 4/11/2012 7:18:00 PM
Not many items actually live up to their claim to work miracles. NOT the case with this little gem. I love my "vegetarian miracle" by Davines but it is so expensive and since I was running out, I picked up the Joico Re-constructor. This stuff is pretty infamous so I couldn't pass up the chance to try it out. I got an extra large tube from a place on Granville Street in Vancouver for only $21. The package said "100% more FREE" and man was I impressed at that score. This is very inexpensive for a salon brand. Joico is always the most reasonably priced thing in the salon. Headed home and tried it out after I had an obnoxious round of highlights slapped onto my head. Worked wonderfully. UPDATE* It has been a solid month of using this product once or twice a week and I must say that I am beyond impressed. To be as concise as possible about its effects: Stopped huge amounts of shedding. Enhanced shine Gave texture and manageability. Stopped hair from becoming greasy the next day. Tamed frizz. Mends split ends (albeit temporarily) Maintained my colour Best of all: Encouraged growth.
I really thought I was going to love this. I like warm colors but I have the same complaint many other women do. It is too shimmery. The colours are pretty but what use do some of them have? They are all so similar to each other to boot. I understand they are supposed to be neutral but there is nothing standout about any of the colours. I picked this out as part of my christmas gift and really thought I was going to get good use out of it. Nope. Oh and fall-out was absolutely unconscious.
