Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Eyebrow Gel

1.0

I bought it directly from the NYX website when it was on sale - perhaps that's the reason why because from the very beginning it was unusable - very very dry, almost solid. I'm very disappointed as I like NYX generally. Perhaps the tube I got was just very old but I don't think I will risk buying another one...

Mascara - Stila - HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara

2.0

3 months ago

Nice packaging and a reasonable wand but terrible formula: doesn't add any length, clumps like crazy and then smudges badly throughout the day. I can't believe such "high end" mascara can be that bad, I'm glad I only got a sample - if I had paid the full price I'd be very disappointed...

Skincare - Face - Deciem - Hylamide Pore Delete

2.0

4 months ago

I've been using OC8 as my mattifier for years, it's my only HG really, but I'm having increasing issues buying it so I've started looking for an alternative. I've tried Hylamide's "Pore Control" (works well but is not enough for my oily skin) and "Matte 12" (also good but very thick - I find it quite difficult to apply) but was hoping "Pore …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Bioré - Biore UV Oil Control Base

I'm a big fan of Biore sunscreens, especially the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen which I've been now using consistently for over 2 years. However, on my recent trip to Japan I noticed this new product and since my skin is super-oily I thought it was worth trying. I'm so glad I did!!! It's basically something I've been looking for: sunscreen + primer + oil …Read more

Foundations - No7 - Airbrush Away Tinted Skin Perfector

4.0

7 months ago

No 7 makeup is a "hit or miss" for me - this one is definitely a HIT! I bought it on a sale, not expecting much but I'm on my 3rd tube now as I started using it instead of foundation for my "everyday look." Granted, it doesn't provide much coverage but skin looks really good after application - it smooths out fine lines and big pores, tones down the redness and evens …Read more

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - Color Mascara - Violet

1.0

I loved the colour of the tester a LOT - beautiful, slightly metallic purple. But turns out it only looks good in the tube - on my lashes you can barely see it, even with a primer and many many layers of this mascara. Perhaps if you have very light lashes it will show better but on darker ones it's almost invisible. Also, no extra length or volume so a total waste of money...

Mascara - CLARINS - Supra Volume Mascara

4.0

I wouldn't call it my HG but it's a fairly good mascara - builds up nicely, doesn't smudge and yet it's easy to remove. The brush is a "classic" which works both for upper and lower lashes. But it's expensive and dried out faster than expected so I won't be buying it again unless it's on special of some sort.

Mascara - Smashbox - Full Exposure Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

For the price (CAD 28), I was expecting something at least half-decent but I've ended up very disappointed - I don't like it at all! The oversize brush makes the application quite tricky, I end up with mascara on my eyelids a lot. Also the formula is pretty bad - it seems nice and very dark but it doesn't do much for my lashes, except making them stick together. I need 4-5 coats to …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Correct & Cover Pink Grapefruit Moisturizer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Like quite a few other reviewers, I must say that it's FAR too dark to be labelled "fair to light" - it's medium at least, with yellow undertones. Makes me look like I've over applied self-tan... The formula seems decent although the finish is very shiny so you need powder or something to matify it a bit, unless you like the shiny look. I bought it because of it …Read more

Moisturizers - Garnier - Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea

4.0

10 months ago

I bought it on a sale, attracted by the size (200ml) and the fact it's vegan. I'm fairly happy with it - it does moisturize my face/neck nicely but I wouldn't really call it mattifying so I only use it at night (I apply quite a thick layer and let it absorb before going to bed). I'm not very happy with the packaging - I usually tend to buy products in tubes to minimise air …Read more
