Fantastic straightening lotion! What I love about it is it is a heat protectant and seems to speed up the blow-drying process while leaving my hair straight, soft and polished. I took one lippie off because it doesn't combat frizz completely (I dab on something like a light styling oil or product like Redken Extreme on the ends where my hair tends to frizz in addition to the lotion), but it …Read more

This is a great drugstore powder that evenly matches the performance of MAC's Blot Powder (though I use a MAC powder puff to apply it). It's a great pick for shine control, though you will have to reapply every few hours. The one advantage with this is that it minimizes the look of pores better than most powders out there - without making your skin look too dry or cakey (though …Read more

Amazing product! This was recommended to me by a friend who uses it and the reviews on MUA convinced me even more that I had to try it out. I am also a fan of Lanolin for my lips, but it's not exactly something that fits into your purse nor is it a conventional lip balm! haha Other than that, drugstore lip balms only aggravate dryness and I've tried everything (all the Blistex products …Read more

In my experience, the print ad with Kate Moss is false advertising. I understand that celebrities are airbrushed to the max, but altering the lipstick shade to drive sales for 578 Diorkiss (the shade Moss is wearing) is just wrong. I bought the color without trying it first, so I'll admit it's my fault I didn't discover this sooner, but according to even product swatches for the …Read more

This is my absolute favourite lip gloss! I've been using this for a few years now (I wear Super Bon Bon)! It's a wonderful pinky fuchsia colour that complements my skin tone quite well. I agree the staying power isn't great but then again, what lip gloss is? (For the record, if you're careful while drinking or eating it won't come off completely so that's worth a …Read more

Can a spray dry shampoo actually add volume to my fine-haired, limp second-day locks? I am happy to say it surpassed my expectations. Not only did it spray on dry as per the product claims, but it zapped the oil out of my roots AND added some volume. Just enough volume and shine added back so I could go another day or two without washing. I really prefer this dry shampoo to the Oscar Blandi one …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

Feb/28/2011

This was a disappointment for me. The shade I bought (W1) blends into my skin tone leaving no demarcation line, but created a pasty effect that required some serious blush to fix. It settled into my dry areas even after exfoliation, making my skin look a tad flaky after a few hours (mainly on the cheeks). I should note I have combination skin and most foundations won't accentuate dryness on …Read more

After not seeing results with this a few years ago while trying out the pot version, I was hesitant to try it again, but after seeing it consistently had won FASHION Magazine's Readers' Choice Award for lip balms, I decided to give Lip Medex another run - this time in the stick version. My chapped lips were becoming unresponsive to my fall/early winter standbys: Smith's Rosebud …Read more

Infinite glowy goodness! This was a welcome change to my usual EL Bronze Goddess (which is my HG day to day bronzer) but this Lancaster compact boasts shades of pink and peach, which add some flattering tones in addition to the bronze hues. Once I applied this, my fair skin took on a radiant, bronzed look (not orange or ruddy) - the shimmer is also quite minimal. Definitely recommend this for a …Read more

This is a fantastic deep conditioner! Every time I use this my hair feels soft and manageable. It also doesn't leave build-up and helps prime the hair for a smooth blow-out. I use this once a week and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, definitely one of the best nourishing conditioners out there!
