Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2017

This product is my go-to facial acid.

Unlike most users, when I first put it on, I peeled like crazy. I left this stuff on and a few hours later, I washed my face with a konjac sponge. My skin looked and felt amazing.

My biggest skin problems are blackheads/sebaceous filaments on my nose and enlarged pores on my chin and forehead. The lactic acid does wonders for both of …

Eye Primer - essence - I Love Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2017

This stuff is gold. For Canadians, it's super-cheap (2.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart, if I remember right) and it really works. Just a dab, and it seriously brightens eyeshadow. Interestingly, it almost works better with cheaper brands. I have the Essence Nudes palette which is just...eh on its own, but with this base, it seriously looks good. This primer keeps high-end brands on for hours too …Read more

Feb/17/2014

I own this product in 01 Always Red and it's basically my holy grail red lipstick.


First, this stuff stays on my lips perfectly. I can eat, drink, kiss,or change clothes, and it doesn't smear all over the place. Second, the colour is this matte, gorgeous true red. It's versatile enough to go with almost every outfit. Third, it's incredibly easy to apply. The …

Lotions/ Creams - Soap & Glory - The Righteous Butter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2013

The big selling point of the whole Soap and Glory line is its fragrance. To go with the vintage feel of the brand, this lotion smells very sweet and feminine. The scent definitely has a lot of staying power, and I can still smell it on my skin at the end of the day. If you like the scent, that's a definite plus. Otherwise, you'll get a terrible headache.


The lotion is …

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Domed Bronzer Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

This brush is incredible. It's huge, dense, fluffy and soft, making it perfect for blending. I've used it for everything form blush to bronzer to powder to liquid foundation, and it's resulted in amazing application every time. Plus, it's environmentally friendly and very cheap. I've gotten it at Walmart for about $10.00, and you can occasionally find it for a fraction of …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2013

I bought my Clarisonic at my dermatologist's. It was slightly discounted, and he said that it was effective for superficial acne, like blackheads and whiteheads.


He was right. After using this for about three months, I no longer get whiteheads, and the blackheads on my nose are significantly smaller and less noticeable. I don't know whether my face feels six times …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2013

This is such a polarizing product. On one side, you have people who cannot believe anyone would spend $25 on a tube of lip balm, and on the other, there are those who swear by it. I got it for free as a birthday gift from Sephora, and I gotta say, I understand why this has a cult following.


Fresh Sugar feels amazing when you apply it. It smells divine, like lemons and sugar, and …

Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Lip Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2013

I've heard from a few reviewers that these lip balms are a decent dupe for the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment from Sephora (which costs $25). Eager to save money, I tried out Quenched, one of two clear lip balms.


The packaging is cute. It doesn't look expensive, but it's a convenient size, and stays shut in my pocket. The smell is faint, but fairly nice, like sugar and …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2013

I liked this product. It provides light coverage, perfect for a makeup-free look, it has a nice, sheer finish, it goes on without too much of a hassle, and it doesn't seem to break me out or make my skin dry up.


That said, it's expensive. And there are cheaper products on the market that do the job just as well. I bought my first tube of this when I was out of BB …
