Lip Treatments -Bite Beauty -Agave Lip Balm

I’m addicted to this balm. The flavor, agave, is light and wonderful. When you first get it, it’s got little sugar crystals surrounding the balm which is just delightful. My lips have never been so soft and supple. The packaging is to die for... very classy looking black tube. Just don’t roll it up all the way and apply it because it will break off. I wish there was more product, I go through it so fast. And it is quite expensive-$18. But it’s worth it to me. This is my holy grail. Try it. The mask is amazing as well. This brand 🙌🏻


Foundations -Wet 'n' Wild -Photo Focus Foundation

I had to write a review on this because I pulled it out of my drawer and used it today for the first time in weeks. This is a solid product. It makes my skin look beautiful! Lasts all day too! I put this above many of my high-end foundations. I have the color buff-beige and it's a perfect match for my winter complexion. Not a fan of any other wet n wild products, but this one blows me away! I prefer high coverage foundations but they are usually matte, this one is very dewy, really it makes my skin glow. Contouring with the benefit cheek parade palette looks really beautiful on top of this foundation. Packaging is slightly odd but I take no points off for that because of how happy I was every time I looked in the mirror today 😏


Masks -LUSH -Cosmetic Warrior Mask

I have only used this mask twice but love the results already. My skin is brighter and any redness from blemishes is completely gone. I have really sensitive skin but this mask was fine on it. The only bad thing I have to say about it is the smell. I mean there are literally pieces of garlic in the mask so what do you expect. All in all, I’d buy it again


Liquid -Urban Decay -Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

This is a great foundation. In my opinion, great shade options and medium coverage, very buildable.
I have combo-dry skin and I use this with powder and it lasts all day long. I have used Giorgio Armani and Dior and this is my favourite.


Liquid -Bourjois -Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

This isn't a bad foundation but there aren't a lot of shades. I found it to be a little too oily. I have combo skin leaning to the dry side so it would definitely not fit oily skin if it is too oily for me. Great price point and worth a try if you can test the shade before purchase or return if the shade isn't a good match.


Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

Went to the estee lauder counter and was colour matched by the very helpful and knowledgeable BA to 2W2, which is a warm yellow based shade. The colour was the best match for any foundation I have ever had, including my beloved Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, absolutely spot on. I have a very difficult skin tone to match and most other cosmetic houses don't offer a wide enough selection. I also have extremely dry, sensitive skin and was very excited to try this. The BA gave me an extremely generous weeks supply to trial. This was great, as based on the first hour I would have purchased it. But as the day went on, my face got drier and tighter and the skin around my eyes was so dry it was flaking. What a shame I really wanted to love this just for the colour alone, but I think this is a foundation best suited to a combination oily skin or a younger skin with more natural moisture. It certainly lives up to the longevity and does not transfer at all, a great bonus. Just not for me.


Lipstick -Cover Girl -Continuous Color Lipstick Iced Mauve

on 11/22/2017 7:37:00 PM

From high-end to low-end, this is one of the prettiest lipsticks I’ve ever used. It’s very pearlescent (hence the “iced” part) but the base is a coral-mauve color that actually leans a bit warm, so if you’ve got yellow undertones like me, don’t let the silvery shimmer scare you off. The overall effect is brightening and flattering. I love to use this one as a cream blush, too! It lasts all day and fades to a lovely coral flush.


Lipstick -Kat Von D -Studded Kiss Lipstick - Lolita

I have several lippies from this line, and most are very drying except Lolita.. I'm able to make the rest work with balm underneath, but this is the only one I would possibly repurchase, as its the best of the few I have... MAC and UD make much better bullet type lipsticks. I do love the color of Lolita, and it's very flattering on my nw25ish skin tone, and lasts a pretty good amount of time. Unless you find it on sale or have points etc I'd probably pass it up, and spend your money on MAC , Urban Decay, or Rimmel for the drugstore side. I gave it 4 lippies because it's a fabulous color that can "work" with a balm underneath, I'd just rather spend my money on a product I don't have to trick into working.


Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand -Bondi Sands - Summer Bronze Instant Tan

This product is AMAZING. Simple to use, I simply sprayed it close to my skin, there was no mess at all, and easy to blend out either on its own or with a little body lotion. I used the dark shade for some color as my skin is pale, this spray will make you look airbrushed like a supermodel!!!!!! You have to try it. And it smells pretty!


Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane -Almond - AMANDE Concentre De Lait Milk Concentrate Body Cream - Almond Line

I should have listened to the reviews here. Hopefully other reviewers with sensitive skin will see the repetition in some of these reviews like mine and avoid this product.

Like others, I LOVE the Almond Shower Oil. As someone with sensitive skin and KP this was a life changer that I have continued to use for years. When I popped in-store to purchase a refill, I was successfully talked into buying a gift pack in the Almond range that included this moisturiser. I figured that if the Shower Oil was such a success for me, surely the body moisturiser in the same range would be too! I've used it after my shower for 4 days in a row and I've got these bumps all over my arms and legs - some of which are a bit itchy. It took 2 days to figure out and now it's just clicked - the only thing that's changed is using this moisturiser!!!

I also think the glass jar is problematic. It feels so dangerous to have in a room where if it fell, not only do I think it would shatter but it would definitely crack my bathroom tiles given it's weight.

I will take it back to the shop and see if they'll help me out by swapping this - it's an expensive product that seems to be causing a lot of reactions like this.


Cleansers -Neutrogena -Naturals Acne Cream Cleanser

I have used this cleanser for almost 3 weeks and noticed I’m getting small zits on the side of my forehead and upper lip and chin. I haven’t broken out like this since I was in high school. I was thinking of waiting it out to see if this cleanser is the type that makes your skin worse before it gets better, but after seeing my breakouts I can’t risk using this neutrogena product anymore. Stopping this immediately and switching over to their liquid/gel cleanser. I think the cream based cleanser does not work well on my skin and is clogging my pores; also my skin probably doesn’t handle the natural ingredients well. You’ve been warned use this product with caution.
