Concealers - Unlisted Brand - the SAEM - Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

This concealer is an amazing dupe of the NARS radiant creamy concealer. Unfortunately, they only have 3 shades (#1, #1.5, #2) so you're out of luck if you happen to fall outside of this range (which is normal for Asian brands).

The lid came loose on my wand, but nothing super glue couldn't fix. For $6, I was fine with this product. #1.5 was a little too light for my skin …

This is a great medium coverage, creamy concealor especially if you have dry skin or live in a dry climate. It blends easily and isn't extremely expensive! The colour range is limited though, so you're out of luck if you don't happen to match their 3 shades.

This has been my HG concealer for the last 7 or so years. I have purchased 3 of these - it's high coverage, amazing consistency, and blends great. However, the packaging leaves unreachable concealer left at the bottom and it's quite expensive.

A Korean brand (The SAEM) makes an amazing dupe of this product (but only in 3 shades) for $6, so I will not be repurchasing this.

I live in a condo where the air is dry and have dry skin in the winter. I purchased this hoping that it would moisturize my skin better. I didn't notice significant changes after using this. To be sure, I tested this mask on exactly HALF my face at night, on top of my regular moisturizer. There were ZERO differences in the morning for both sides of my skin. So I guess it doesn't do …Read more

This is my new HG winter cleanser!

Many people have left this amazing cleanser low reviews because it doesn't wash off makeup. I double cleanse, which is super effective at removing makeup, so this is not an issue for me.

My skin is super dry in the winter and I was searching for a mild cleanser that wouldn't strip my skin of moisture. My regular/summer cleanser …

I've purchased 2 of these: Nude to Me (pale pink/nude shimmer) and Night Glow (taupe shimmer, medium opacity). They have a decent range of nice colours and I would definitely repurchase!

PROS: These shadows are a great value for money ($9 CAD) and with daily use last 3-4 months. It stays on all day, is easily blend-able, and isn't hard to wash off. The wand is convenient for …

Lip Gloss - CLARINS - Instant Light Lip Perfector

This product is supposed to be moisturizing. I’ve given it a few chances to prove itself, but I’m disappointed.

When you first apply it, you get a tint of colour with a lip gloss sticky feel. After a full day of wearing this and taking it off, I am expecting my regular lip moisture level, or even a bit more since this is supposed to be moisturizing. However, my lips are unveiled to be …

I bought a travel sized version of this at pharmacy as I forgot to bring facewash and there happened to be a discount on this.

This is a decent face wash. I do find it slightly drying and my face feels a little tight afterwards, but this is pretty much the “well cleaned” feeling. It doesn’t break me out and has a nice foam effect. It’s $15 for 200ml in Canada, so it’s a decent price …

Jan/23/2018

I mainly bought this after reading good reviews and due to its cool branding/packaging. This product has super nice packaging as it comes in a heavy glass jar, and it has a strong rose/floral scent.

It works fine as a moisturizer but gives me small closed comedones so I would not repurchase. The ingredient list is extremely long, I assume it’s something in there although I can’t …

This is a nice, refreshing mask to use in the summer. This doesn’t really have an anti acne effect on my skin, but does seem to briefly control oil. I would not repurchase as I realized it contains parabens.
