Lips - COVERGIRL - Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Balm

I was really excited that CG is now cruelty free so I went out and bought this. Got this in Caramel which is a nice medium reddish brown, like a deep nude. Really like the color. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of the scent which is a bit strong/artificial for me, and I don't understand why any makeup is scented, just adds more chemicals. Also I paid $10 Canadian which I think is a bit …Read more

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Photogenic Concealer

Highlights texture and fine lines under my eye, making them look 10x worse. Tried it with and without under-eye primer and setting powder. Nothing helps. Threw it out since Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada doesn't take returns.

Bought this in Atlantic Bisque, which is described as very fair neutral. They also have ultra fair if your skin is extremely pale. Probably the ultra fair would match me as well, but I prefer a tiny bit of color and I must say the Atlantic Bisque is GORGEOUS. Somehow it gives me the perfect amount of gold/peach so that my skin looks just slightly sun-kissed without looking orange or making my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Coastal Scents - 22 brush peice brush set

Jan/21/2018

Purchased this set in "Orchid" (purple) and I'm really happy with them so far. At $19.98 on sale, the entire set was the cost of 1 brush in many lines. Have washed them with no problem. Will update if they start to shed or fall apart. A few of the brushes aren't quite as dense as they could be, but since I prefer a lighter application of product, they are great for me. …Read more

I'm on the fence with this one. It's a really cute squeeze tube so I like the packaging, and it does help stop creasing but I find my eye shadow looks patchy after 8+ hours of wear. I do find it fairly comparable to UDPP for a much lower price. So far the best primer I've found is the Too Faced one, but it's so pricey. I'm going to try the Wet n Wild one next to see …Read more

Fantastic and inexpensive natural, vegan mascara. I have the brown which is a cool dark brown. I don't think it looks much different from black on the lashes, but is softer. Applies smoothly and can be built up with several coats. Minimal clumping. Nice natural-looking lengthening. No smudging and minimal flaking after 10+ hours on me. Does not irritate my sensitive eyes. My eyes are a …Read more

This is a matte medium-dark grey brown. Perfect for my protuberant eyelids and a great neutral for my hazel-green eyes. Applies smoothly, especially if I use a lighter shadow underneath. And hey, it was $1.

The Internet is full of glowing reviews for this device including people who say they've seen results with a single use. The company's literature is more cautious, saying you should start to see results after several treatments. I have done about fifteen treatments. I don't have many wrinkles (I'm 49), but I have seen little to no improvement. My tiny incipient wrinkles …Read more

Contour - NYX Professional Makeup - Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

I'm surprised this palette isn't getting more love. I have both this and the Kat Von D Shade+Light, and find them almost identical. This one actually has more colors, including a shimmery highlighter and an orangey bronzer-type color. The NYX palette cost me $18 Cdn (on sale) and the Kat Von D was $61 Cdn. I find them equally pigmented, and both have quite a bit of powdery fallout. …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Paint the Town Nude Lip Pencil Set

3.0

Dec/04/2017

These are a good value for the price, but what I learned from this set is mostly that I don't look good in nude lip colors. I am very pale (NC10 or very fair) but I have quite pigmented lips. Half of these give me the "concealer lips" look, which isn't great for someone of 49. Oh well. Got them along with a primer and the $15 off, so I can convince myself I paid $20 which …Read more
