Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Revitalift Miracle Blur

I love this stuff!!! I usually use Hourglass Mineral Primer, Dermalogica Skinperfecting Primer, Rachel K CC Cream or Estée Lauder Mattifying Primer and this one blew them all out of the water. I have large pores on my nose and get oily in my T zone area and foundations tend to slide. This one keeps my oils at bay plus minimizes the look of my pores. I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation on top and it's perfection that last 12+ hours. The only things I have to complain about is that it is a bit expensive for a drug store product $24.00 + tax CAN and it is hard to squeez out of the tube. I will still repurchase as it is a must have product for me.
Love it! I read great reviews about this product and that Kim Kardashian's makeup artist uses it on her. Her makeup always looks flawless and under eye area super bright. I am around NC25-30 and use this powder strictly to set my under eye concealer (my routine is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Brightener, Mac Prolongwear concealer in NW20. After I pat it in with the Beuty Blender so concealer doesn't settle into fine line and creases after some time. The final step is Banana powder.) I was never so please with my under eye area and the longevity of the look, which to me is uber important. I tried so many setting powders: Bare Essentials Well Rested, ELF HD powder, MUFE HD translucent powder, Coty Airspun Powder... This is the best powder with an amazing price! I bought mine on e-bay for $15.00 (8 o.z.). The only complaint I have is the packaging as it is very messy and dispenses 2 much powder which you end up wasting. But that will not sto me. My holy grail product!
Mascara -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat

I was battling the constant problem of every low end or a high end mascara flaking or giving me raccoon under eye. I always put concealer under my eyes and set with setting powder which did not help. I tried putting a coat of waterproof mascara on top of regular mascara and nothing seemed to help my mascaras not to flake. I finally bit the bullet and bought this top coat (I hate spending $ on high end mascaras as the shell life is so short and there are drug store options that perform the same). I love it! It actually worked! I tried it with bunch of mascaras and they do not flake anymore. The price is high but it works!

I love this polish! It's a bit more baby pink than Essie Balley Slippers but application is much better. You only need 2 coats with this one and the formula is not streaky. The lasting power is great and for the price a great nail polish.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Eyestudio in Cosy Cashmere

Amazing! So pigmented, quality is the same as Chanel shadows. Great for blue or green eyes. Super blendable. Great price point!
I love this foundation. I have big pores on my nose and chin area and foundations have a hard time staying on those parts of my face and foundation tends to melt and slip. Not with this one, don't get me wrong, I do get glowy in the second part of the day but it looks nice and not greasy. I apply it over the Hanskin Super Plus BB cream which I use as my moisturizer and a primer (I notices that by itself Hanskin does not stay on my face for long, but under any foundation it prolongs the wear) and then use Smashbox 15 hour wear with a Sigma buffing brush. After which I dab the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder with the Elf Powder Brush and I'm good for the 17 hour day! Hope this helps.

Amazing! Quality is even better than MAC's shadows. Smooth like butter. After purchasing these I put away my MAC shadows. Can't beat the price as well. The only request I would have is a magnet in the back of shadows so u can put them in the pallatte. I bough sticker magnet sheets in Michael's and put them in the back myself. Would strongly recommend to try.
Love this foundation! I just tried samples of Urban Decay Skin, Kat Von D Lock It and Smashbox Studio Skin. I loved the Smashbox Studio Skin as it stayed on my face all day and didn't separate at any point on my nose as that's the issue I have with all foundations. So I purchased the Smashbox for $54 (taxes included, in Canada). The same day I went to Walmart and saw the new display of Revlon Cream foundation for $16.95 plus tax. I loved the Revlon Cream as much as Smashbox! The great thing about it as well is that it's half the price of Smashbox! I will return the Smashbox and will continue using the Revlon! If I feel like the foundation looks too matt I just put a bit of Laura Mercier Mineral Loose Foundation and it give my skin the luminositi. The packaging kind of sux, as it's bulky and kind of messy so you have to be careful when using the product, but oh well, how else would you package it as it is whipped cream consistency.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

Love this mascara! I used to use the YSL Effet Faux Cils mascara but had to put a CG Lashblast on top because YSL was flaking. Decided to try this mascara because of many positive reviews on here. The mascara is $2.99 on the Jordana website, but because I live in Canada I had to pay $16.00 for shipping, so that's the only drawback. I put it on and it's amazing! The mascara is very black and it gives my lashes length like no other! I would purchase this mascara again and again, just buy more next time or find out where it is sold in Canada. Try this mascara, for this price u definatly will not regret it.
I love this glitter polish. I work in a salon and this polish sold out in 2 days. I’m really glad I got one. I love how it looks on top of the other baby pink polishes. It’s one of those glitters that will look good on both, hands and feet. You also need just 1 coat of these sparkles. So girly!
Love!!! This concealer truly lasts all day even without setting powder. I started noticing small wrinkles around my eyes and my previous concealer (Benefit Erase Paste) used to set in to them making me look much older. After reading all the positive reviews I decided to try Pro Longwear and loved it. My best friend went and bought herself one after trying mine. The only thing I don’t like is that pump dispenses too much product. Will buy again for sure.
I love the way this perfume smells. It’s perfect for fall/winter seasons. The only thing is that it stays on my skin for about 30 minutes. Had to give this perfume to my friend and she loves it!

I had lash extension for 3 months and when I decided to take them off and give my lashes some rest, I literally had no lashes left. Whatever left of them were short stubby roots...I was freaking and the lady at the salon recommended me to buy LeLash for $160. I was sceptical of trying it because she did not give receipts and accepted only cash, so I was scared if product did not work I could not get my money back. So I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and bought Rapid Lash. I was in love with this product. After 3 weeks my lashes looked long and dark. Now everyone is asking me if my lashes are fake! Defiantly a great product!
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

Love this foundation! I have an oily to normal skin (oily in a T zone) and I used to use MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF15. I decided to try Rimmel because I saw the review of it on a youtube. It was on sale for $5.99 CAN and I thought I might try it. I sometimes work 12 hrs shifts and need my foundation to last. With this foundation I don't even need to do any touch ups throughought the day. It does have a very flowery smell but I don't might it at all. Blends very nice. Will definatly buy this again.
Nice bright polish. Even one coat could be enough. No streaking.
