Best mascara I've used in a LONG time. Actually, make that ever. And I've tried a lot of them. I like this better than my HG old mascara (Dior's Hypnose) To start off with, I can't complain about the packaging. Works for me. The brush isn't too big, and it catches my inside lashes quite nicely. It holds my curl all day long, I only need one coat and it doesn't clump. What else could a girl ask for? Makes my lashes nice and long - not spiderly looking, but nice and natural. My HG for sure.
I purchased this on a Sephora employee's advice on how it was her "hands down, favorite mascara." But boy, this mascara is awful in my opinion. The brush is a nice shape, and the bristles are awesome as they catch my eyelashes nicely. Only complaint is the formula. It's super wet and my lashes harden SO much. I'm not a fan of hard, spidery lashes. That, and it smeared to my browbone area as well as underneath my lashes. Not impressed with the end result, unfortunately. I think there are some much better and CHEAPER mascaras out there available.

This foundation was the WORST I've EVER used! I purchased the lightest shade for my combination skin (Around NC20) and the coverage was good! I was impressed at first. Then, halfway through the day it completely oxidized and I looked completely orange. It looked TERRIBLE on my skin and it melted onto my phone. 'Nuff said.
I love how it appears and applies sheer, but you can totally build up the colour as desired. You don't need to worry about applying too much at first at all. The hint of sparkle isn't bad, but I would prefer something a bit more matte. It nicely complimented my fair skin (NC20). The price wasn't bad as I purchased a Benefit kit from Sephora for 40 bucks that included Sugarbomb, a mini They're Real & Porefessional along with a full-sized High Beam. Score! The packaging could be improved upon, as the box is a bit thick. The brush is super cute though, and perfect for desired on the go touch ups. Would I repurchase? Probably, yes!
I like the colour of Dainty, however the lasting-power is terrible. Halfway through the day and you can't even tell I applied blush (Even after applying MUFE's HD powder!) Super disappointed. Also, I could do with a little less sparkle. I will continue to use it, just as I might as well. But my next blush will definitely be something less-sparkly with a similar colour. I'm very fair skinned - for the record. NC20.
This is one of my all time favorite perfumes. I first smelt it in Sephora and knew I HAD TO GET IT. I'm so glad I did, It's an everyday perfume that I'm in love with and would be happy to repurchase. Such a nice light, floral scent that lasts a decent amount of time (almost all day!) I always receive compliments on it and I can't complain of the price (70 dollars CAD). Love wearing this.

I receive a TON of compliments while I'm wearing this scent - both from women and men! It's definitely a floral scent, but it lasts a long time and settles nicely into my skin. I only purchased the 30ml bottle, and definitely wishing I invested in a bigger bottle. Nonetheless, I love it and am excited to try Enchanted Wonderstruck.
I LOVE this scent. It's very unique compared to other scents I've purchased. It smells fruity at first, but it dries down to a sweet, irresistible smell. I would absolutely purchase it again. One of my favorite perfumes, and it seems to last a long time on me. In love with this!!
At first when I smelt it in the store I thought it was pretty unique, and thought that I might like it. I later received it as a gift and I realized that you definitely do not need more than one spray and it is extremely strong. It also seems a tad musky, which I can't say I overly enjoy. But, as it sinks into your skin it fades. And when I say fades - I don't only mean the musky smell. I mean the scent in itself. It probably only lasts about 3-4 hours on me. I don't hate the smell, but it's definitely not one I reach to terribly often. It's not an everyday scent in my opinion. Definitely more of a night scent, and one to use sparingly. Would I repurchase? Probably not.
Personally, I find this perfume to be quite lovely. I couldn't get enough of it at the department store (I chose this over Dior's J'adore - but that'll be my next purchase.) I find that the floral scent reacts well with my body chemistry and it ends up lasting nearly all day. I bought the biggest bottle (100 ml for around 90 dollars CAD) which in my opinion is well worth it, as I know this will be my favorite in the spring and summer. Only complaint is the design of the bottle. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the rubber daisies. I have to agree with other users on that and say it's kind of childish. But, this will definitely be a repurchase when the time comes. Very pleased.
