Liquid -Younique -Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation

Way too oily, separates (regardless of what I wear underneath - eg., primer, moisturizer, sunscreen), doesn't last long. I can't fathom why it has a ~$50 CAD price tag. Such a rip off.

Hair Treatments -Unlisted Brand -Ouai Hair Oil

on 12/13/2017 5:25:00 PM

I got this as a sample and want to like it because of how lightweight it is and how soft it makes my hair. But, I'm a little concerned about what all the ingredients are in this product considering the first three ingredients in their dry shampoo are butane, propane, and alcohol.

I'm no chemist, but 20+ ingredients for one oil seem like a lot. I'm by no means a "natural" only kind of person, and chemicals are in everything, but I do like to exercise some caution.

If none of that bothers you, this stuff smells great and isn't greasy at all. A little overpriced in my opinion so I wouldn't buy because of amount of product/the concerns I mentioned above.

Nice colours but very bad formula. They are very dry, I prefer spending more money and buy the ones from Kat Von D

Sadly this blush is discontinued. It was the perfect taupe neutral blush on my super fair skin. If anyone finds a dupe, please post it!


Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

i bought one of these for my mom. ive always really liked nyx’s products but this one was seriously disappointing. for starters, it never fully dried. she wore it for less than an hour and it had already started coming off the center of her lips. after she reapplied it, the formula became sticky and patchy. she said it transferred everywhere too. i tried it out, wondering if she hadn’t applied it quite right (she hasn’t tried many liquid lipsticks), but i had the same results. i wont be buying this again.


Hair Treatments -Pantene -3 Minute Miracle Moisture Renewal Deep Conditioner

I tested many generous samples of this Moisture treatment mask and I am quite happy with this product. It is not one I would have gravitated towards in the pharmacy, so I am happy that I have discovered a nice product. I applied this in shower after washing my fine and long hair, waited the three minutes, and rinsed well. Superb! I was careful to rinse well out of concern that it may weigh down my fine hair. It coated my strands quite well, feeling quite slippery on the hair in the shower, but, in effect it w as well rinsed. This gave my hair renewed shine and strength. My hair was moisturized on another level, absolutely no frizz, blow drying was entirely easy and any look of dryness was gone. My blow dry lasted longer than typical. Sleek, but not greasy, hydrated and light. Very nice, especially at the price.

Cleansers -Unlisted Brand -The Body Deli Almond Milk Cleanser

on 12/13/2017 4:19:00 PM

Very impressed with this cleanser, my skin looks better since using it..I have mature normal to sensitive skin, since using this, I haven't had a breakout, my skin is really looking healthier.li really recommend it if you have dry reactive skin..that product is like treating your skin as it cleanses it..I always finish with a micellar water, and I don't use waterproof makeup, so that works..I would say it does a good job of removing makeup ..it isn't really cheap but I am buying it again for sure..that brand really has good stuff.

Moisturizers -Farmacy -Honey Savior All-in-One Skin Repair Salve

This is my first time trying the Farmacy line. I'm generally not sensitive to smells so most things don't bother me but wow, this reeks of an awful plastic odor. It doesn't smell anything like honey. As for the product itself it does the job if you have dry skin like me but it isn't a crazy miracle worker. Unfortunately I don't want my face to stink so I'm going to pass on it.

This is one of the mascaras that I had to throw away. It gives me panda eyes, so no matter how nice my lashes look it’s not acceptable with mascara under eyes...

I used to buy the sephora brand wipes but I prefer these now as they are unscented. It does a great job of removing makeup including liquid foundation and mascara. It's very gentle. - no burning or itching.

Lips -NYX -Epic Ink Lip Dye

on 12/13/2017 3:44:00 PM

I think some people might have this product confused and think that it is a lipstick. I'm kind of surprised by the bad reviews but it's interesting that two people can have such a different experience! I'm glad there are a million products out there so we can all find something we like.

Onto my review...

When I heard NYX had lip stains, I couldn't resist picking up a few colors that I don't already own in another brand. I grabbed Victorian, Obsessed, Heartbreaker, Fresh, and Slay. Victorian is the first one that I tried and is the one that I'm wearing in the photo I uploaded above. This is watery and VERY pigmented. I got a little bit outside of my lipline, but that's an error in my application and not feathering from the product. This dried in about a minute and it hasn't budged since. I've put vaseline on top to give a little shine to my lips, and I've been drinking out of a straw all day and there's no transfer on the straw. I've eaten twice and it hasn't moved. Color me impressed! I can't wait to try the other colors. I don't know how this is going to come off if it didn't come off with Vaseline... that's my only concern lol.

Update: I've added pictures of Slay, Heartbreaker, Obsessed, and Fresh. Heartbreaker and Slay are my favorites. The best way to wash these off is with soap and water. Baby oil took off like 10% of it and then did nothing. Love these!

Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild -Megalast Nail Color - Bite the Bullet

on 12/13/2017 3:14:00 PM

foto

I remember that I got Bite The Bullet years ago in a sample kit.

I never really loved color like that, I'm more of a weird/ dark colors nail polishes type of person.
So I was really suprised when it quickly became my favorite of all the Wet n Wild polishes I currently own.

I would describe the color as a light purple mixed with grey, in other words, it's a beautiful dusty purple.
The formula is pretty good, it goes on a little bit shear, but a second coat fix it. It also dry quickly. In general the formula is smooth.
I also really like the brush, it's not too small and not too big. It's really easy to use on curved nails like mine.

In conclusion, I recomend this nail polish.
It's a soft color with a little bit of attitude! Really pretty :)
(Plus it's really affortable!)

Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic -Luxe Facial Brush Head - Cashmere

I stopped using my Clarisonic for probably almost a year now because all the brushes were way too aggressive and rough for my skin. Very happy I decided to try this one out as it feels super soft but still cleans my skin nicely and pain free.

Eyeliner -Kiko Cosmetics -Precision Eyeliner

on 12/13/2017 2:53:00 PM

I'm actually surprised this doesn't have many reviews on here!!

This is my HG eyeliner; because it's:
1) Affordable
2) Very easy to apply
3) Stays until I decide to take it off (no primer needed)
4) Jet black and matte

It is everything I look for in an eyeliner; the only issue I have is with it's availability where I live, so I tend stock up on those whenever I'm at a Kiko counter in Europe!

Hair Treatments -Kerastase -Disipline K Maskeratine

*dramatic sigh* I am disappointed.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a bad product. It does make my hair soft and more manageable and the smell is really pleasant, you can actually feel it about a day after you've washed your hair. However, since it's about three times the price of, say, L'oreal Professionnel (at least in my country), which is still pretty expensive, I naturally expected it to be three times as good. I'm afraid that's not the case. I don't see much of a difference in the results from this mask and a lot of other still high end but not as expensive masks (TIGI, L'oreal, Joico, Milk Shake).
It does have a certain "treat yo self" feeling to it. It comes in a box wrapped in cellophane, much like an expensive perfume, and it has this "rich girl hair" smell to it. But I expected much, much more for the price.
