Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Lanolips Banana Balm 3-in-1

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2018

I love Lano products, but the white cast in this one is a deal breaker for me. Doesn't matter how thinly I apply it I get this weird, ashy look on my lips. And I don't like the fact that this lip balm has weird little sparse sparkles in it. I don't have a problem with glitter but it's such a small amount it gives me this look like I didn't clean my lips well enough after …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm

This is my review for the Strawberry multi-balm.

Likes:
-It smells so yummy! It's a soft, strawberry candy sort of smell.
-It's very rich and hydrating. It cocoons the lips in a hydrating layer of moisture.
-It hydrates deeply. When it wears off my lips are still hydrated, plumped with moisture and smooth

Dislikes:
-It takes a bit of warming up …

Lip Treatments - Glossier - Balm Dotcom

Jul/01/2017

Overview: I didn’t expect to like these as much as I do. I have flavours Birthday, Rose and Coconut.

Price: $12 which to me seems worth it. I only need the smallest amount massaged into my lips.

Formula: It’s a dense, thick product that’s thicker and less slick than Vaseline. It melts against the heat of my lips. In general, I like petroleum based lip balms because I feel …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

3.0

May/29/2017

Update on July 10th: This mascara started out so nicely for me that I gave it five stars in my original review but I'm taking away two stars for how horribly it aged. After about a month of use Lash Paradise dried up and got thick and clumpy. I've never had a mascara dry up on me so quickly. It sucks because Lash Paradise had all the makings to be my absolute favourite mascara, but …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Hydrating Primer Mist

3.0

Apr/27/2017

I feel like this is only good for a bit of temporary soothing and a little moisture. Otherwise I didn't feel like it delayed the breakdown of my foundation at all. It didn't further the breakdown or reduce it.

The nozzle on this is really great. It's so much finer than Hard Candy's setting spray mist. I get misted, not spritzed with this stuff.

The …

Feb/21/2017

In my experience was mediocre. I wouldn't recommend this mask to people who are prone to dryness. I've experienced so many nicer sheet masks than this one. I had high hopes for this mask, because the price point is nice ($3.97CDN) and it's one of the few drugstore brands that has a sheet mask out.

After washing my face I patted my face dry and put this mask on. The mask …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

Dec/30/2016

This mascara is just not for me. I think it should be called Low Impact. I like mascaras that give me a lot of drama and this mascara just doesn't do it for me.

I have a deluxe sample size of this mascara, not the full sized tube. I received it in a little boxed set with a mini take the day off cleansing balm.

The Brush: It's very big and fluffy. It looks like it …

I really like this stuff. I just finished a bottle today and I definitely know I'm going to return to it. I bought it for $9.97CDN at my local Wal-Mart which is the cheapest I've managed to find it.

It doesn't leave a white cast on my deep skin which I'm endlessly thankful for. It's got a nice texture for my combo oily skin. Like really nice. Super silky …

Dec/09/2016

As a busy college student who doesn't always have time to polish her nails, but still wants to look good; I love this stuff.

I have two of the more neutral shades; Pinned Up (a peachy pink in a cream finish) and Touch Up (a muted grey tinged mauve in a cream finish) along with the base coat. These are definitely more expensive at around $10CDN for each bottle, but it's worth …

This mascara primer delivers on it's volumizing promises. I've never tried a mascara primer before but I've always wanted to.

The cheapest I've seen this product is $6.96CDN but I got it on sale for $5.96. I was pleasantly surprised at the price because L'Oreal mascaras usually retail for $8-10.

This mascara primer is very very white! It definitely …
