I think this is a relatively new brand from Korea. I got this from my mom (practically stole, but lol, she knows I love makeup). The website doesn't specify if this is a BB, CC or whatever but from the claims they make, I assume that this is a BB cushon type base product. It comes with 24g of the BB and two puff thingies.

The claims are as follows: moisturising, have good …

Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lip Liner

May/15/2015

These are the best lip liners for for only $1-2 each! I have the nude and red shades. Both apply super creamy and set to a matte finish that isn't drying. They definitely add to the longevity of whatever lip product you top them with.

11 In The Nude: matte peachy nude
08 Red Blush: medium neutral red

What a steal <3

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Lightscapade

I love that this is a permanent line because for my NW15 (winter)/NC30 (summer) skintone, it's a perfect highlighter year-round.

Unlike most other MSF that they put out, this one has a subtle sheen that looks lit from within that looks good for a daytime look. I've noticed that the new formulra is slightlest bit more frost but I don't think the difference is huge. The …

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream - Monte Carlo

One of the best reds I have ever tried!

For around CAD $10, this is a true gem to have. The finish is an absolute matte yet it's not that drying at all. I find that using ELF lip exfoliator before applying this helps. The coverage is full-on and once it dries, it transfers very little and feels like you've got nothing on.

Smells like super sweetened vanilla like …

I love that this brand is available in Canada (limited but better than nothing) now. I have two shades 31 Shine Orchid and 23 Toast but I plan on getting more of these babies.

31: concentrated lavender and pink glitter
23: matte medium warm brown

31 has a slightly gritty texture but the glitter is concentrated and not that chunky. It applies beautifully over a sticky …

Primer/ Corrector - The Face Shop - Oil Cut Pore Balm

Apr/02/2015

This is probably one of the best primers I have used in all of high end and drugstore, the other being Clinique Universal thingamajig.

First of all, the texture is pretty thin and not noticeable when you have this blended out. It has a faint lemony/citrus scent so if you're put off by that, don't get this. It definitely blurs out the pores around my nose and also helps …

The. Best. Highlighter/blusher combo ever! And it's only $7ish Canadian.

When I spotted theFACEshop in the West Edmonton Mall, I had to check out a few products. This little gem in particular caught my eye because it seemed to have a very subtle duochrome.

It has a super duper creamy texture and very pigmented as well. I use the Real Technique Contour brush on the …

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Lip Exfoliator

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2015

I heard many good things about this and when I spotted it in London Drugs (Canada, since they're phasing out Target) I had to try it. I love that it's in a lipstick tube form like everyone else here. It's not messy like other types of exfoliants and for $4, it's dang effective.

I have been using this every other day overnight, and before applying matte lip …

After trying many foundations (drugstore and high-end) I have decided and they don't quite match up to my skintone well. I'm Asian but my skin has a mostly neutral undertone with a slight tendency towards yellow. The only thing I've found that matches my skin the best is Dior Star in #10.

I've tried some CC cushion thing when I went to Korea and I liked how well …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Honey Lip Treatment SPF 15

Mar/16/2015

I have this in the mini version that came in the set they sell at Sephora. My experience with tinted lip balms is limited to mostly drugstore (aka Maybelline Baby Lips) and I can say that the extra bucks are worth it.

This doesn't stand out from the other nudes (mostly light mauves or pinky beige) that I already have. The sheen that it gives off helps make my lips look a bit …
