Do people even read the product directions? You're not supposed to use this over eyeliner (I know from the name it sounds that way) you're supposed to swipe it in an eyeshadow and then use it as a liquid eyeliner. From the website and packaging: "The Liner side transforms your favorite eye shadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with this unique clear liquid and …Read more

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

Jun/17/2012

Finally got my hands on this! I've been lusting after it for ages. Best highlighter out there, that I've tried anyways. It's finely milled, so it is super smooth. Mary-Lou Manizer is a beautiful champagne colour, with subtle shimmer. No glittery chunks here! A little tiny bit is all you need cause it's so pigmented. It was $27 Canadian for 8.5 grams of product. Little pricey …Read more

Holy moly, I love this stuff! I'm not generally a MAC fan but I'm never going without this stuff again! I don't know if it makes my makeup last longer or not, but I have really dry skin so whenever I set my makeup with powder, it looks cakey. A few sprays of this and my makeup has a perfect, dewy look. And you can't even tell I'm wearing foundation! Awesome. It's $24 …Read more

I am in love with this scent. I'm not too big a fan of the Clean line. I own one other fragrance, Outdoor Shower Fresh. The pretty pink bottle called out to me one day while I was in Sephora, so I tried it on. It smells just like the beach to me. The beach grass note lasts a long time on me, which I really like. It makes me think of sunscreen, flowers, and salt water. It's an odd …Read more

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

3.0

Apr/06/2012

I'm on the fence about this product. The eyeshadow "Sin" is easily my most used, and favourite shade so I was excited to try it in primer. It's still a beautiful pink/champagne colour with a hint of shimmer, but I found that it doesn't blend out as well. And when I put eyeshadow over it, it doesn't look as smooth as the original. Plus, if I smear it into my crease …Read more

Really pretty colour! The sparkles aren't overly garish either, which is nice. I love the slight tingle. The smell reminds me of this weird lipgloss I had as a kid. Sort of an artficial fruit/playdough smell. It's slightly offputting to me, which is why I took one lippie off. It was part of a set I got at TJ Maxx for 10 dollars. Great buy! I probably won't repurchase though, as …Read more

My first Thebalm eyeshadow! I got it as part of a set so I didn't get to swatch the colour. It's a beautiful green (package says emerald, but it's really more forest green in my opinion) It feels quite smooth and goes on nicely. A little too dark for my skintone, so I'll use it strictly as a liner. I won't repurchase this particular shade, but I'm looking forward to …Read more

I saw these at Dollar Tree, and figured for a dollar, I can't really go wrong. I bought the gold and the teal. The gold feels really smooth. It's a bit sheer, but works well on my skin tone as a highlight. It's not overly shimmery. The teal doesn't feel as smooth, but it's highly pigmented. I probably won't use it often but for a dollar, I'm sure I'll get …Read more

Got this in a set at TJ Maxx for 10 bucks. Nice! I love the gel consistency. It's a flattering raspberry tint on my pale skin. I like the doe foot applicator, though I need to blend it out a bit with my finger. I'd like to try the other tints. If i see it cheap again, I'll rebuy.

Like many others I got this and the original minis as a birthday gift from Sephora. The packaging is awesome, I must say. They look so sleek. I like the texture of the balms, and the slight lemony scent. The rose lip treatment has a pretty pink tint to it. They keep my lips supple and moisturized. As far as repurchasing a full size, I'd have to go with no. I'm all for putting out extra …Read more
