Conditioner - Dove - Pure Care Dry Oil

I haven't been able to find an amazing, inexpensive drugstore conditioner since Suave discontinued its Pro Vitamin B Conditioner for Colored Hair, circa 2005–06.

Upon receiving a sample of Dove's Pure a Hair Care Dry Oil range last summer, I was impressed by the scent (powdery, musky, warm, floral) and effectiveness of the range—particularly the …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Micro Brow Pencil

Love the Taupe shade, as it's a perfect match for my colouring. I appreciate that I may feather and comb the product in, for a natural effect (no drag brows, here!). However, I'm not a fan of the design—NYX needs to differentiate which lid goes on what end, as they're both black, but the pencil end is slightly longer. If one isn't careful, and places the shorter cap over the …Read more

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Volume Plumping Mascara

$3.99 mascara: used twice, then returned, as the product was wet and gel like on the brush, and came out gloopy, requiring the brush be wiped with a tissue before using.

Subtle, natural lashes.

Not the mascara for me.

I've not seen this available in Canada, so ordered it from the States. I won't bother to do so again.

First of all, the BRUSH is not pleasant to use. It reminds me of original Great Lash mascara's short spoolie brush, but HARDER, and liable to scratch your cornea. Way too hard and course; didn't distribute product well!

The slim handle has a nice length …

Mascara - RIMMEL - 24hr Super Curler Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/19/2016

I wore this twice, and ... it went promptly back to London Drugs, for a full refund.

Does it curl or lift lashes? No. Does it hold any sort of curl? No. Did I have to use a lash curler before and after applying? Yes. (I know: don't curl after applying mascara.)

The brush gives little volume or ... anything. It took me 3–4 coats to see much of anything. A natural lash …

I received a tube of this in a Birchbox shipment last Fall, and while I certainly appreciate their Eco-friendliness, this is not a mascara I'd purchase for myself.

There's a soft, natural effect, nice definition, but the product flakes after a few hours of wear. I'd want more benefits, if I were to spend more than $10 on mascara, thanks, and donate some saved money to …

Apr/19/2016

Unless I've been gifted a product by a vendor, I don't buy expensive cleansers or makeup removers. For something that's going down the drain, is tossed away on a used cotton pad, I use something inexpensive, which gets the job done! I invest in treatments instead, and am quite satisfied by CerAVe Hydrating Cleanser, paired with an inexpensive eye makeup …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Clump Crusher Extensions LashBlast Mascara

4.0

Apr/19/2016

Volume, length, relatively good endurance! Not a clump in sight, and gives a beautiful, full, fan effect of lashes. Build it up for more impact!

If there's one thing I HATE about the newer generation Cover Girl mascaras (as well as other brands), it's the FAT handle. A slimmer design would be easier to hold. (at least this one is workable, unlike the original two LashBlast …

Why oh why can't L'Oréal (or Maybelline) release simply a reasonably priced LASH PRIMER????? That's all I want: a simple, affordable, GOOD quality, individual lash primer, which performs reasonably well! (sure, I like some higher end ones, but why would I pay more for a primer to go under my drugstore mascaras of choice?)

But, nooooo! Not in Canada! (or elsewhere …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara

1.0

Apr/19/2016

Put it this way: I bought a tube of the Blackest Black (non-waterproof), used it once, and promptly brought it back to London Drugs for a refund!

The consistency is too wet. I hated the brush, and with 2–3 coats applied, my lashes looked like little, black SPIKES (or spiders legs)!

Total FAIL, Maybelline! (Bring back Full n' Soft to the Canadian market!)
