Primer/ Corrector -Cover FX - Cover Fx Skin Prep Fx

Great product! It goes on really creamy and after it sinks in skin feels like satin. It really makes blending concelear much easier though I would not reccommend this with a liquid foundation. When I wear it I see an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and pores though nnot dramatic. I read some other reviews that cited breaking out. For me this has not been a problem at all though I do have acne prone skin, however I don't wear it daily. I will certainly repurchase
This is a really nice foundation and though it is not my HG I still love it. It's good during the winter/fall months though I found it's rather heavy for hotter weather and can clog your pores or just leave you feeling really oily. The formula is really creamy and goes on nicely, and looks quite natural. I recommend this to anyone looking for a creamier, good coverage foundation for the winter months.
Talk about copying Givenchy. There's nothing great about this product. The regular version lengthens but does not add any volume creating a rather weird effect. You'd have to probably combine it with a volumizing mascara. This version clumps. That's it! It has no other purpose. Not worth the 10$
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

Ick!! This product is terrible. It does not blend, it just stays on top of skin like this gross layer of greasiness. Yes, you can certainly match your skin tone, however, that's beyond the point when you can't blend it in so it looks NATURAL. There is no way in hell Eva Longoria and Beyonce actually use this in real life. It also broke me out a lot. Maybe it would work differently for someone with normal or dry skin, however if you have combo, oily or acne prone skin stay far FAR away!
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

This product is amazing. The shade matches me perfectly and it blends in really well. It looks like you're not wearing makeup even though you are. Makes skin look perfect and the coverage is great. My only problem with it is the dispenser, because you can't control how much goes into one pump, so I end up with more than I want. It lasts a while as the bottle is not small, so for the price it's a great find. I have oily skin and I find that this stays put just fine, though for a night out you may want to seal it with a light dusting of powder. It's not greasy at all, nor does it dry too fast. 100% I'll repurchase!
This perfume is soooooo amazing. One of my top three! It's feminine, romantic and fruity but I guess it depends on the person as fragrances smell differently on different people. I think Burberry Brit is nothing compared to this one. And the hints of Jasmine are ever so refreshing. It really makes you feel feminine yet modern.
It's a nice mascara don't get me wrong. I have long lashes, however, so I find that the difference between this and any other, less expensive mascara is none. I don't know whether it would make more of a difference for someone with shorter lashes trying to achieve length, however for me I really saw nothing. It is a really nice mascara, I have no complaints about it but don't waste your money because you can find something by Maybelline which is just as good.
I actually use this in Pink Topaz but since there is not category for that shade I decided to review this one. This is my go to blush. It goes on beautifully and looks quite natural. I also really like the shade as it works as a blush and bronzer all in one. I have medium fair skin and this looks great all year round. It doesn't matter if I'm tanned or not. I recommend this line to everyone, its all about finding a shade that works well with your skin tone.
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Quadra Eye Shadow Sparkling Satins

I was really disappointed by this product. I had my makeup done by a Chanel makeup artist for an event and she used this quad, so I decided to purchase it because I really liked the effect. The actual pigmentation of the eye shadows is terrible! The pink and the beige are virtually invisible when on, except for too much glitter, and even to achieve that takes A LOT of layering. The silver is nothing special, and again needs a lot of layering to achieve a true color. I don't mind the black, as it works well along with a different product by Lancôme, however it too is not pigmented enough and it takes a good deal of work to get the right intensity. I find the glitter a bit annoying as well as it does not stick to your lid, rather falling on your cheeks instead. Lastly, all the colours are really difficult to blend. So overall, very disappointed. Definitely not worth the price as I feel like I was attempting to put on cheap Maybelline eye shadow not Chanel.
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
gem15 11/17/2009 9:28:00 PM
I really wanted to like this product but sadly that didn't happen. Coverage wise I found it more like a tinted moisturizer rather than foundation. Also I have oily skin and this came off really easily even when set with a powder. Overall I was really disappointed and I can't say it's worth the price, especially considering the size. I'm now using makeup forever's foundation which is AMAZING! I wouldn't repurchase this.
I really like this product. I have oily, acne prone skin so I really have to be careful with what I put on my face. This powder has yet to cause break outs and I have used it for a few months now. It's really great for coverage and can be used alone, as it is a foundation, or to set your foundation, though I would suggest you use it sapringly in the second instance. When I wear it alone I tend to use the sponge applicator as it layers it on better and provides that nice coverage, whereas if I wear it on top of something I use a powder brush. It lasts a fari ammount of time though you may have to reapply in the T-zone after a few hours depending on your skin. Overall it's a great product and I completely intend to purchase again. For the quality, the price is also perfect!
AMAZING!!! So far it's the only moisturizer that actually cleared my face noticeably!! I used it for about two weeks so far and by the end of the first week, my skin started getting way better. I only have mild acne, but it explodes all over during the time of the month. This time however, I got no blemishes at all! I definitely think that it's this product that has affected my skin because my diet is still exactly the same. After two weeks, my skin is now almost perfectly clear; it's healthier and more luminescent. Also the texture is much softer and i have a more equal skin tone. Overall i think that this product is an absolute miracle. Also, the price isn't to bad! I got it for $28 CDN. It isn't dirt chip but i think it's a reasonable pricing for such a good product! I’m definitely going to repurchase this unless it magically makes me break out any time soon...
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Ultra-Thick Mascara

OMG this is the most amazing mascara that i have ever used...and believe me i have had tones of practice! It makes my lashes look soo amazing and long! Totally compliments anyone's eyes. I find that it also works even better with they're sky high curves mascara....but maybe that's just me. I totally recomend it to anyone, it is a trully amazing mascara however it might take a while to master the mascara wand which is just a tad big, however after you perfect that, the mascar will be truly amazing, and can be purchesed at a really good price compared to departament store brands that do nothing!
