I am about NC35, combo-dry skin which leans dryer in the winter but in the summer i get shiny in the Tzone (mostly nose and sides of nose). I have tried this in the shade B50 and BD50 which probably is a touch too dark as it tends to darken a little as time goes on. The texture of this is very strange. It feels very thick and almost like paint or spackle. Very 'dense' almost like a …Read more

This is so thick and hard to spread for dryer skin under the eyes. It accentuates and settles in fine lines for me and just isn't a great look on my 37yo self. There are so many colors to choose from which is a plus and you only need a small amount so I can see this lasting a while if it works for you.

I have this in the deep brown and it's good for brunettes imo as it doesn't pull red. Most pencils for brows just look too red on my nc 35 skin, but this one is a good tone. I got it for $6 on sale and the spoolie is a thick bristle. The shape isn't great for precise work but for broad strokes, I like this pencil.

I wanted to love this. It really does last all day and does not feel heavy on your face. The color range is ok i am about NC 35 and had to go with Tawny. There is a scent to this product and it applies well with either BB or brush. But it is just not workable if you have any dryness. It is almost too matte and sets very quickly so you can't really blend it well. It also imho does not seem to …Read more

This is a great drugstore primer. You can find it for about $6-7 CDN on sale at sdm or superstore or Walmart. It applies well but my only issue is too much product comes out when you take the brush out of the tube. So you either have to wipe it off on the rim of the tube which sucks or wipe on a tissue which wastes product. It seperates my lashes well and defines them and makes any mascara look …Read more

This broke me out. I wore this about three days consistently and it was the only new thing I tried. I got rash bumpy type breakouts so it is most likely one of the ingredients. The foundation itself is a mousse texture and spreads easily with a beauty blender but does set very quick and applies pretty medium to full coverage right away. The shade 220 did oxidize darker for me by the end of the …Read more

This is a very wet mascara and the comb makes it easy for you to apply too much and for it to be clumpy. It does give a great full lash effect to the lashes but it does irritate my eyes, i think due to the 'tightlining' style claim they make which is basically they get mascara into the upper waterline area which is too irritating for me. It is $$ for a drugstore mascara (about $10 CDN) …Read more

Nov/01/2017

This is a decent mascara that is almost always on sale at the drugstore. It applies easily, but is very wet so i had to wipe the wand with a tissue before applying. Gives a nice defined and seperated look to the lashes. But it is a PITA to remove. I used the Garnier blue cap micellar and had to wipe at least 3-4 times and i am not a fan of rubbing my eyes/lashes that much. When a mascara is NOT …Read more

This is a very thin weightless oil. It is almost runny and seems to leave your face wet almost. I myself have asked deciem if this is derived from olives or sugarcane and they told me sugarcane. But others who have also asked deciem if it derived from olives or sugarcane have been told olives. So....yeah. The CS is sketchy.

The oil itself clogs me. The first day i used it i woke up …
