Masks - Unlisted Brand - May Lindstrom- The Problem Solver

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2017

I stumbled upon May Lindstrom products and I am hooked. Yes, the price point is high, but you only have one face! I love the idea of getting facials but to be honest I never saw any lasting results. So I justify the price by saying to myself that it costs less than a facial for the jar and I can give myself many facials instead! I have very combination skin - sometimes oily, dry, acne prone …Read more

Styling Products - John Frieda - Forever Smooth Leave In Cream Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2017

I find I forget how great John Frieda products can be! I love love love this primer. After I shampoo and condition my hair I apply it right after while my hair is still sopping wet (I apply it right in the shower). Then I apply my styling products and either air dry or lightly diffuse my curly hair. It really controls the frizz and also gives me loose gorgeous curls. I find I can use less of …Read more

Liquid - Unlisted Brand - Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection Skin Perfector Foundation

Jul/30/2016

I am very picky about foundation and I have slightly sensitive skin. This foundation does not irritate my skin and the coverage is amazing. I use the shade Medium 3 and it is a perfect match - I used the Jay Manuel Beauty App to help me pick the colour. It's very buildable, so I'll go light for every day and I bit more intense for evenings and special occasions. It can be used right …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Audacious Lipstick - Charlotte

5.0

Feb/23/2015

Charlotte is a gorgeous deep red - leaning towards burgundy or oxblood. From the sleek case that closes with a satisfying magnetic click to the formulation, this is lipstick perfection. The key is to start with moisturized lips - I like to apply lip balm 15-20 minutes so it can soak in. This lipstick applies like a dream, great coverage and texture and doesn't dry out my lips. The …Read more

Conditioner - John Masters Organics - Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner

Dec/31/2013

I have medium textured curly hair and have the usual curly haired issues - frizz and dryness. I was expecting this conditioner to be intensive because of the name. For me it's not intensive at all, it's more like a regular conditioner. I like the smell of lavender and like the concept of the John Masters line. My favourite part of this product is the tube packaging - it's very …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Molton Brown - Coco and Sandalwood Body Wash

Dec/30/2013

Decided to try this scent to mix things up with Molton Brown's Black Pepper Body Wash. If you like sandalwood then you will love this body wash! I really like sandalwood and the aroma of this body wash is both rich and refreshing. The coco is from coconut but I can't really smell coconut. The formula is lovely - only a little bit is needed to get a lush lather and it leaves my …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Molton Brown - Recharge Black Pepper Body Wash

Dec/30/2013

I first experienced this body wash in my cousin's guest bathroom. My husband raved about it and he's not really into products so I bought him a bottle when we came home. It smells amazing! It's slightly masculine, spicy but still refreshing. I use it too and I have sensitive skin and this does not irritate at all. It rinses away clean but my skin feels moisturized. The scent …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Gloss - Stolen Kisses

Dec/30/2013

I am always searching for nude lip glosses and this one is perfect for me. For reference I wear Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #8 and I'm NC40 in MAC.
I quite like NARS cosmetics and find that this lip gloss is quite long lasting even after drinking my morning coffee. It has a subtle shimmer and for me is MLBB type of shade. Looks great on a no make up day or with a dark …

Masks - Sisley-Paris - Express Flower Gel

Sep/16/2012

This mask really plumps up and firms my skin. After using it my skin glows and feels soft and refreshed. I love using it before a big event or if I'm feeling a little tired. I find it works well when I leave on for 3-5 minutes and blot off the excess and also when I leave it on overnight. I feel like I have to ration my use because I want to make it last. This mask is also perfect …Read more

Sep/16/2012

I really love this mask but had to take off one lippie for the price point, but I would definitely repurchase. Its perfect to use when you don't have a lot of time, it only takes 3-5 minutes and its really effective. It has clay, but it does not get tight and dry like other clay masks, it stays creamy and moist. When I rinse off the mask it leaves my skin feeling clean, toned and …Read more
