Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream

This is the first Antipodes product I bought. It's sold in Canada only at ebeauty.ca so I was so very excited as it comes all the way from New Zealand. The smell is amazing - my mom didn't like the smell as much but she doesn't like vanilla. It also has an earthy green/rainforest smell to it, too. This cream is very hydrating and my skin looked amazing the day after I used it too. I loved it so much I went ahead and ordered 2 more Antipodes products, lol.
I bought the NYX blush in Blush and Pinky - both colours I just love :) They're not available in stores in Canada, but they are available on the Canadian makeup site eBeauty.ca. I was worried at first that the colours would be way too pigmented on my skin, but they weren't. All you need is a swipe or too and you've got beautiful colour on cheeks!
I purchased this from eBeauty.ca (Canadian makeup site) in Deep Golden. This mineral powder is sheer but offers buildable coverage, which is great because I like more coverage for my redness, but less coverage so my youthful skin still shows. I like this powder a lot and I think I will try more mineral powders again in the future!
I think this is the best body scrub out of the all the Body Shop scrubs. It's refreshing because of its citrus scent, and it's not too oily on the body. I rub it on my legs in the shower when I don't have time to moisturize my body afterward, so it still feels smooth and not scale-like. The only qualm I have is the packaging - it sits in my shower and the labels come off very easily due to the moisture in there. The labels come completely off!
AMAZEBALLS!! This is my go-to body butter. I use it for my hands and body. I got it for only $10 (regulars 24$) because of the 3 for $30 weekend sale going on. Which is an amazing deal...I don't think this body butter is overpowering at all - it actually has a subtle scent compared to other Body Shop butters. I love it so much... can't say much more than that!
This is a really great concealer. Prior to this I used Make Up Forever Professional's concealer, which I thought also was good. The Amazing concealer I bought in medium beige. It offers very natural-looking colour. I used it mainly to cover redness and blemished, usually on my chin, nose, and just above my eyebrows for more even tone. I agree with the other poster, though, I think my pimples did take longer to heal when I applied this concealer on top of it. I bought it for $42 off eBeauty.ca, which is steep so I don't think I'll buy it again. If you can afford it though, I would definitely recommend it.
I bought this at eBeauty.ca. The price is super cheap so I tried it on a whim. While I like the colour, the consistency and taste is just okay for me. It does taste a little Jolly Ranchers-y, which can feel kind of cheap and tacky. I would definitely recommend it for a teenage girl as it has the look of high-end colour but for a fraction of the price. I would say the colour is the best part about it, and it really is great for pairing with smokey eyes!
I ordered this in caramel beige (I have asian light-medium skin tone). After watching lots of YouTube videos and demonstrations, I decided to get it. I got it off eBeauty.ca, which is Canadian. I'm assuming this product is the Canadian version, not the American one. It works well, and is great for those who need to cover pretty big marks like scars. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't need absolute full coverage. It's pretty good quality!
This gold colour is like the kind of colour you see on a bar of gold - not pure gold. I agree with the other reviewer who said it had a "greenish" tinge. But I love this colour, and it looks nice and opaque (I don't like nail polishes that look too glittery as I don't want to look like a five year old!). I ordered it off of eBeauty.ca (free shipping on all orders for all you Canadian girls). I would DEFINITELY recommend this. It's such a superb colour, and I've never seen this particular hue in any other nail polish brand. Bravo butter London!
I usually stick to Dermalogica, but I really like this toner - plus it's pretty cheap considering other higher-end luxury skin care lines. I got it off ebeauty.ca. (free shipping over $25 for all you Canadian gals). It really smoothes out my complexion and makes makeup application much easier - not as much flaking when I put on my MAC powder foundation. It's not too drying or harsh, which I like, too. Yay!
This has a similar consistency to Benefit's Erase paste - but it comes with two colours. Works wonders on dark circles and the shadows around my mouth and nose. Bought this off ebeauty.ca and am happy with my purchase. I bought the Shell/Almond shade. Having two shades is extremely convenient, especially going through the winter/summer seasons. I'd highly recommend it!
This is super cool - I don't think I've ever seen another product like this that turns powdered eyeshadow into liquid eyeliner form. At first I was afraid that it would ruin my eyeshadows. Basically all you have to do is put the brush tip into the corner of your eyeshadow until you see colour on the brush. Once you've lined your eyes with the colour, then just put the brush back in the tube - you don't even have to clean it, it cleans "magically" in the tube. I use this on my MAC eyeshadows and some Maybelline eyeshadows as well. It definitely works well with good quality eyeshadows too, since the eyeshadow is probably already very good to begin with. I'd say if you've always wished your fave eyeshadow colours could be used as a liner for your eyes, I'd definitely recommend it. If you're Canadian it's available at ebeauty.ca.
I always get these as Christmas stocking stuffers haha. One time I got sunburn on my lips, so I kept reapplying this balm over and over again - it really soothed my lips and I'm pretty sure it helped my lips heal from the sunburn more quickly. I would definitely recommend it as it's not too expensive and is portable!
Primer/ Corrector -Skindinavia - No More Shine Makeup Finish

This stuff is amazing. I use it before I put on my makeup and there's noticeably less shine than when I don't use it. It's also great for when photographs are being taken, because you know how shine can come through in photos even though your face isn't really that shiny in real life :P Anyway if you're looking for it in Canada, get it either at a boutique in your town or at ebeauty.ca. I'm not sure if Shoppers carries it.
I've been using this for a few months now. If you're going to buy the sponge, you might as well bite the bullet and purchase the cleanser as well - that'll save you from your woes when you can't get the foundation off it. As a professional makeup artist, this is a really great tool to have. I use it when I want a flawless look for my own face - so I guess you can say that it's worth the steep price! I bought mine here in Canada online at ebeauty.ca. You can buy the sponge and cleanser together to save money. I'd definitely recommend this sponge. It's not super popular in Canada yet but I have a feeling it will be soon!
