Lipstick - Lise Watier - Hydra Shine Lip Stain

Nov/17/2012

As i'm just about to throw this away, I thought i'd write review about it. I love Lise Watier and I love the packaging. The child in my loves the idea of colouring my lips with a marker. The by-line says "long lasting. satin finish. comfort". Cool. I'm a natural lip gloss kind of person, so i picked it up in the shade Naturel.

Application was nice and watery …

Eye Makeup Remover - Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

HG eye make up remover. I've been using this make-up remover for 10 years, and I've never had any irritation or an adverse reaction to this product. It's not too heavy, and not too light, which is to say that it removes all of my waterproof eye make up without the oily residue. I always have a botle on hand, but to be honest, I switch it up with Boujois because I'm not a …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Bourjois - Express eye makeup remover

I'm on my second bottle and it's not HG material, but it works for me and the price point is good. This product's dual phase doesn't mix as well as it should, but if I shake it vigorously, put it on a cotton pad right away, and give it a couple of gentle wipes, I'm satisfied with the removal result. The slightest greasy feeling left on my eyes doesn't bother me that …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Amika - Curling Wand

I'm pretty bad at doing my own hair, and I have never been able to master the clipped curler...but this curling wand is SO EASY. It heats up quickly and makes for consistently pretty curls. I used the glove at first, but then after the second or or third time using this, this self admitted klutz was confident enough that I could maneuver this without burning my skin. I cast the glove …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - COVER FX - Brush Cleanser

Best brush cleanser I've used. Smells nice and clean, and super easy to use. I pour some into a shallow container, mix it about 50/50 with water, swish some brushes around in it until they're clean, and rinse. (I change the solution when it gets a bit murky). Result: clean brushes that feel brand new.

I heard that people like to use olive oil / dish detergent mix, or …

Just used up the last of this product, and in one word, this was: Okay. It smelled nice, it did the job, but it certainly wasn't worth $30. (Now it's gone down by $10, but it's still not worth $20).
The texture was creamy and uninteresting, and it was hard to squeeze the last 30% out of the packaging. It didn't improve the condition of my skin, in fact, I found it …

Palettes - Too Faced - Natural Eye Kit [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Feb/08/2012

My go-to eye pallette. Extremely wearable, velvety, well pigmented colours that all work and blend well together. Everyday matte colours and extra glittery night out colours in neutral/warm tones with a tiny pull out drawer with a (useless) dual ended brush make this is the perfect eyeshadow kit to travel with. The best neutral palette I've ever come across in a cute and sturdy …Read more

Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio

Feb/08/2012

Purchased this a few days ago and have been trying to like it, but they've all broken during application. Application is smooth but pigment is light, and when you make the slightest press to get some proper colour, the kohl breaks. That's pretty much a guarantee. I can't be bothered to mold it back together like the previous reviewer because there are no redeeming qualities to …Read more

Moisturizers - Biotherm - Skin.ergetic Day cream-gel

1.0

Jan/24/2012

I've been using this product for the past 4 weeks with no results to speak of. It's a standard moisturizer that does impart more softness to the skin when compared to using nothing. It smells a little un-natural to me, and it doesn't absorb well either. It definitely is not on par with Biotherm's other products---very un-impressive. Definitely not purchasing again.
