Moisturizers -Biologique Recherche -creme dermopurifiante


This stinks but gave me glowing, baby looking, matte skin. Kid you not. Started getting compliments on how natural my "makeup" looks like the third week I was using this Creme (after P50 of course), also when I stopped wearing BB cream.

Also note- this does NOT have mineral oil as some reviewers say- the second ingredient is glycerin.

Blush -BeneFit Cosmetics -Cha Cha Tint

Love this! It looks very natural. I put it on when I'm not wearing any foundation or over my foundation. I bought the travel size since you really don't need much product.

Tip! Never apply directly to face with the applicator. It will dry very fast and when you try to blend it, it will leave a stain on the spot where you first applied it. What you want to do is apply it to your fingers and then apply it to your face cheecks using your fingers. You have to be pretty quick at blending it out to get it even, but the result is absolutely beautiful.

Eye Makeup Remover -Joe Fresh Style -Eye makeup remover

The worst feature of this product is that it doesn’t remove eye makeup at all. It doesn’t matter how long you let it sit and soak into your lashes, hardly anything comes off. It took me about 4 eye cotton pans doused in the stuff to take off just mascara (not even waterproof!). It’s like using plain water.

Loose Powders -By Terry -Hyaluronic Hydra Powder

on 3/21/2018 6:00:00 AM


I really love this powder for setting my face and especially the concealer under my eyes. It is very fine and not drying, and it won't look cakey or unnatural. However, I tried using it for baking the area under my eyes once and then I went out for a drink. The morning after when I looked at some flash photos from the night before, I was horrified to see that it looked like I had applied a thick layer of baking powder under my eyes. I would definitely recommend using a small amount of this with a puffy brush to set the face or illuminate certain areas, and then use another powder on top if you want to bake.

Bottom line:
Yes! This is an amazing powder to set makeup if you apply a small amount. You don't need much and it doesn't look cakey even in daylight.

No! Do not use a large amount to set the area under your eyes if you are going out at night and there is a risk of someone taking a photo of you.

PS: I checked the box that said I would repurchase this if I ran out simply because considering the small amount that is needed to set your face, I'm pretty sure I will never ever run out of product. I've had it for over a year, used it on and off, and it still looks full.

Primer/ Corrector -Deciem -Hylamide HA Blur Face Serum

on 3/21/2018 5:44:00 AM


I just tried this today so I can't say if it will break me out or if it's long lasting. What I will say is that this definitely blurs my pores! I normally use the porefessional which works under all my foundations. Today I used this instead and my first impressions are that it blurs my pores like nothing else. I applied it after sunscreen (just on nose, forehead and cheeks) and it did a really good job at mattefying the skin. The foundation I applied over it I've never worn before, so I can't really say much about what difference it made as a primer. I will however say that if it wears good throughout the day I will use this on my no-makeup days to blur pores and create an illusion of absolutely flawless skin. (I don't have any pimples or dry patches at the moment so by flawless I mean that it blurs my pores, and kills the shine from my sunscreen).

I forget to put it over the fine lines around my mouth and under my eyes so I will be back with a review on that too. I also want to try mixing it in with my foundation, although I don't have any high expectations for that because no blurring product I've tried has looked good mixed in with foundation.

Eye Shadow -Revlon -ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

on 3/21/2018 4:56:00 AM


These seem very nice, I purchased #730 yesterday and have played about with it a bit. It's a sheer, shimmery nude rose pink. The perfect natural polished eye look! The pigment intensity isn't very strong - I think the Maybelline Tattoo ones were better in that case. I have "Bad to the Bronze" which is by comparison much thicker and more metallic. This Revlon one seems thinner, sheer but creates a beautiful shimmery wash of colour that sparkles in the sun. I just used my fingers but the brush that comes with it also looks handy. I didn't notice any scent. Guessing they could also be used as a base for other shadows too. I always use eye primer but these seem to dry quickly and set well - it's been over 6 hours so far & no creasing or flaking so far. I would recommend these for people looking for quick, neutral eye shadows that are easy to apply and last all day.

I went to the club went in the ladies room and still no oilyness lol,my face was still fresh looking I went home and look at my face again it was still fresh. I even hesitated to wipe it off it looked awesome I loved how it controlled my oily skin I'd recommended this to anyone with really oily skin It works😄

Eye Primer -NYX -Glitter Primer

on 3/21/2018 4:31:00 AM


Let's cut it short, I'd already repurchased this and then another one is on it's way. I freaking love this thing. This product made me able to wear eyeshadows without fall out or fading, finally. I have very oily, heavily hooded monolids, the skin on my lid folds over and rub against itself, plus the oil, and my eyes water easily. All that just mean no eyeshadows can stay long on my lids without fading or drop off my lids altogether. I'd found a great eye primer (the WnW PhotoFocus), but I still struggle with the more creamy shimmer or metallic eyeshadows. The center of my lids is the oiliest mess and that's the first thing to go. Some days I have two empty patches of skin where my shadows had been. I use this a bit of this glue on the center of my lids, after I've applied the matte shades for transition and outer V etc.; wait a few seconds for it to dry, then I put the shimmer shadow on with my finger - they stay there, all day, no matter the heat or humidity. I usually apply my lid shade with a finger anyway, so I don't mind the extra step of putting the glue on. I got this in the Glitter Goals set that NYX put out last Christmas, so it's only a mini 5ml - half the amount in the fullsize, the whole tube is about the size of my thumb, just easier to travel with if you ask me - but a little bit goes a long way. I've been using it consistently for nearly 2 months and I've barely made a dent. I got the set intending to experiment with glitter, and after the glue worked out so well doing what it's intended for, I went ahead and tried it with eyeshadows to great results. I ended up getting the other 2 Glitter Goal sets as well, it's great value and convenience, I get two more extra tubes of a product that I LOVE, plus a compact stack of 3 awesome glitters with each set.
The product comes in a tube with a very small applicator, so it's really easy to get out exact amount of glue I need each time. The glue comes out looking a bit pearly, but once spread out it dries completely clear. I use this to "cut" my non-existent crease, it intensifies the colour payoff of the shadow just as good if not better than using a concealer or a white base. The only problem is you gotta work fast, once the glue dries, the shadow or glitter won't stick to it as well. I find that using glitter glue is better for the duochrome shadows or "topper" shades that are a bit sheer, they look much better when the colour beneath them is visible. The sticker wrapped around the tube of glue is really cool too, it's lenticular/holographic and it flashes rainbows when I roll it between my fingers. The price is totally affordable, and the product lasts. Everything about this product makes me happy. I hope NYX never stop offering this product.

Sunscreen -Biore -UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF50+ PA++++

on 3/21/2018 3:54:00 AM


I really liked the feel of the Biore UV Aqua Rich sunscreen, it's gelish lotion and dries to a moist matte finish that I can't feel on my skin at all. I wear it on my neck only as I hate any products on my neck so sadly it's a bit darker than my face. I try to wear a light scarf until it gets too hot to protect my neck. It does have alcohol and a citrus scent that is refreshing though normally I don't like any scent in my products.

It didn't dry my skin but sadly even though I slapped lots of it on and let it sink for 20 minutes and I have 10 minutes of exposure on my way to the train station and the rest is through window glass (not sure how much that protects) I still got dark and I was trying to hide in corners where no sunlight would come through.

I imagine it works well with makeup but I only wore it on my neck so can't say to that possibility. It's too bad, it would have been a HG if it actually protected my skin.

Palettes -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills -Subculture

on 3/21/2018 2:51:00 AM


I was intrigued by the color scheme of the palette, so I bought it but ended up returning it. I hated the shade cube because it was so dry and had no pigment along with the electric green shade. The metallic gold was ok but didn’t pick up well on a brush and I had to pack it on with my fingers, which may be fine for some people but a palette this expensive should have shadows that apply well both ways. The mattes were very pigmented, but quite difficult for me to blend.

Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent -Touche Eclat Blur Primer


This primer is... just okay. If you have dry, textured skin with large pores you will probably like this. If you're oily, I imagine you'd hate it.

- decent blurring effect
- smooths textured skin
- feels slightly moisturizing (in more of a locking-in-existing-moisture way; definitely moisturize before applying if you are dry)
- scented but in a nice way, not too overpowering
- feels fancy and bougie! Makeup is all about the experience, right?!

- VERY silicone-y, slippery primer. A little goes a very long way (which I guess is a pro!), but I would only recommend to dry gals
- has literal gold sparkles/flecks, which don't dissolve or melt away. You will legit have sparkles on your face. However, since you only need a tiny amount, they are thankfully minimal, but they're still there.
- not good for oily skin, I imagine. I have dry skin and this gives me an 'almost' oily feel
- expensive ($57 CAD)

Overall, it's alright. Not for everyone, and definitely on the pricey side. I'll use up what I have but I probably won't buy it again.

Cleansers -Clinique -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm


This product is my holy grail for removing waterproof or stubborn makeup. Seriously. I've never found another product that melts away waterproof mascara and eyeliner like this one.

I don't love the jar packaging, but given the almost-solid consistency at room temperature, I suppose there isn't really another way. I like someone else's suggestion of a stick format, but it's probably not solid enough for that.

I scoop a tiny bit of this with a clean finger and apply it directly to my eyelid or lashes and rub (very gently!). Then I soak a cotton pad with micellar water and gently wipe everything away. Magic! It doesn't burn or sting, even though I've definitely gotten some in my eye before.

It also lasts FOREVER. I got a deluxe sample from Sephora (15ml) 10 months ago and I'm only 3/4 through it. Granted, I only use it for the eye area, but I do use it every single day. I might start using this for the full face as part of a double cleanse since it's so good!

Cleansers -Garnier -Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing water


I bought this because I was running out of my Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm and wanted a simpler way to take off my waterproof eye makeup.

At first it seemed great! It does take off foundation and removed my eye makeup pretty well, not every last bit but it seemed to get most of it off on the first cotton pad. It has a bit of a scent, not sure if it's perfume or just the oil, but I didn't mind it.

Then I started noticing stinging when excess product got in my eyes. I got redness and dryness on my eyelids, and also started feeling an oily residue on my skin hours after use. I definitely do not agree with their claim of 'no rinsing required', I would use a face cleanser after this for sure. On top of all that, the skin on my forehead and cheeks became more rough and textured within a week of using this product.

TLDR: Two lippies because it does take off makeup reasonably well, but it feels oily afterwards, seemed to break me out, and isn't friendly to sensitive skin. I normally use the 'dry and sensitive skin' Garnier micellar water (pink cap) for my non-waterproof makeup and I'll probably stick to that.

Lotions/ Creams -Jergens -Wet Skin moisturizer - all types

on 3/21/2018 1:49:00 AM


Had a coupon. My first experience with this type of product ( in shower lotion).
Bought to use at gym so I don't have to moisturize outside of the shower.
I love Jergens products. Not this.
The slickness comes from the glycerin in the product. I did not feel my skin any better after using.
It reminds me of suntan lotion's feel and it smells like it too.
I'm using it up because I don't like throwing away money
I will be looking for another in shower product for the gym

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser


I found Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleaner at Wal-Mart a few days ago. They didn't carry my Say Yes to Carrots Cream Cleanser so I decided to give Nourish a try. I was nervous at first especially seeing that Coconut Oil is one of the first ingredients and that makes me break out. However, I thought that it should be alright because I'm using it to wash my face, not as a moisturizer.
First off, I think this cleanser should be in a pump. It's far too runny to be in a tube like this. So if you decide to try it, be careful getting it out of the tube because it comes out really fast. Second, this feels great when I'm washing my face. The texture is fantastic. However, when I wash it off, my skin is really dry. Even when I follow this product up with Acure Seriously glowing serum (my usual moisturizer). I find this surprising considering that I have oily skin. Maybe it will just take some getting used to but..I much, much prefer Say Yes to Carrots cream cleanser. Lastly, on the upside, this product hasn't broken me out. In fact, my jawline was hit with hormonal acne over the last week and I think this cleanser is actually helping. In short, I probably won't be buying this product again. I like the ingredient list but my skin gets uncomfortably dry from this. I even have to put lotion on my hands after washing my face because they get so dry! Wanted to love this. I'll keep using it for a few more weeks and see if my skin gets used to it. Will update :)
