I have found my new favourite Lush mask. This mask is excellent for sensitive skin! I was hesitant to try it, because others have been irritating- but I gave this one a shot anyway. And it's wonderful. It does tingle when you first put it on, but don't panic! It's supposed to because of the peppermint oil. This mask leaves your face refreshed, smooth, and with an increasingly even tone. The only cons are that it is messy (to apply and to remove). The best solution is to put it on and let it sit just before you take your shower.
I love this foundation- one of the best I've tried. It has a medium coverage (but very buildable). I use it with a beautyblender, and have received a number of compliments on how flawless my skin looks. I have very sensitive skin, and this didn't irritate me at all.
I bought this lipstick on a whim. I had been looking for a great, basic nude color...And this is it! I have very pale skin, and most nude lipsticks are far too dark (or they look like I slapped some concealer over my lips). This shade is wonderful. I love the packaging, and the shape of the lipstick itself. Very easy to use. It is moisturizing, but it does not last very long.
Get this foundation...now! This product works magic for evening out your skin tone, and making you look healthy and refreshed. I use it practically every day. You can use a small amount, for less coverage. It is a bit heavy, so definitely take it off at the end of your day.
This is, hands down, the best blush. It can be used for a subtle effect, or layered on for more dramatic color. It's wearable for night and day, and flattering to most (if not all) skin tones.

This primer is great for most looks. It helps your eyeshadow and eyeliner last for an incredible amount of time, especially if you have oily lids.
Eyeliner -MAC - Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Undercurrent

This is my favorite colored eyeliner. It is sparkly, and dramatic- perfect for a night out or when you want your eyes to be noticed. It's incredibly long-lasting, and does not budge. Even on someone like me, who has oily eyelids. I would not recommend using it on your waterline, however, because of the glitter (it can be irritating).

The best black eyeliner ever. This eyeliner, true to its name, will stay on all day. In fact, the only complaint I have is that it's often hard to remove at the end of the day. The formula is creamy, and appears almost liquid-like when it's on your lids. It's easily smudged, perfect for a smokey eye.
I really like this moisturizer. It has a great smell. Sort of like orange creamsicles. It is very heavy, so you do not need to use a lot unless your face is extremely dry. I have found that it has made my face look brighter and smoother. This is a great moisturizer to use at night.
I like the smell of this product. But I wish it was a tad more cocoa-y. It is so close to smelling like cocoa butter, but it's missing something. I don't like the texture. And it is not moisturizing at all. If anything, it made my hands dry when I used it. It's for a good cause, but I will not be buying this product again.
This is my favourite soap. Ever. It smells just like orange juice. It is so refreshing for early morning showers, especially in the summer. It's definitely cheery. It is a bit of an exfoliate, so be gentle. You do not need to use a lot of this soap to create a lather. I hate that it's so expensive (but most Lush stuff is), but it is worth every penny.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

This is the best shadow primer there is. It will help your eye makeup stay on until YOU want to take it off. Zero creasing. Zero smudging. I have oily eyelids, and before I started using this primer my eye makeup would last a few hours, at most. Now it generally holds up for an entire 9-5 workday. I will buy this product again and again and again.
Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Opening Night

Opening Night is one of the best Sephora by OPI colors. It is an opaque royal blue with a hint of shimmer. One coat will do, but two looks fantastic. I get compliments whenever I wear this color. With a good topcoat it will last for days without chipping. And it looks amazing with a glittery topcoat. Perfect for the Winter months!
I had heard such great things about this product, but I was disappointed with the results. The first thing I noticed was that it didn't brighten my skin at all. It felt nice on my skin, and it wasn't irritating which is great because I have sensitive skin. But with foundation on top, I found it emphasized my pores which is the exact opposite of what I wanted.
Top/Base Coats -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Flurry Up topcoat

This is my favourite glittery topcoat. It is perfect for all seasons. It looks magical paired with black or dark blue polish. And seasonal with red. There is variety with the sizes of the glitter, which adds depth. It is virtually chip-proof, and will last for quite a few days without showing signs of wear.
