Blush - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microfinish Cream Blush - #7 One Too Many

I went to Sephora to get a sample of this and it looked absolutely gorgeous. The color is absolutely beautiful, so pigmented that a little goes a loooong way and you can build up as you wish. I applied with a foundation brush and found it easy to blend. It's really long lasting, unlike powder which I find somehow evaporates off my face, I still had a noticeable blush after several hours of …Read more

Powder - bareMinerals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light

Oct/22/2011

I've always had rather dry skin and break out easily so I've always been an avid user of liquid foundations. However, they always emphasized the flakes around my forehead and nose. The last I used (and still use) is Guerlain Lingerie de Peau for which I had to shell out 63 CAD. While it worked well, it seriously feels like a second skin, it still somewhat emphasized the dryness and did …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - bareMinerals - Prime Time Original Foundation Primer

Oh my god! Finally a primer that does something! I've tried a few and I never really saw the point. Smashbox's crap broke me out, MUFE really didn't do anything (and no, the pink did not make me 'glow'...) and Hour Glass seems to make my foundation sink into my pores. I got a sample of this when I last purchased something at Sephora along with mineral foundation and a …Read more

Lipstick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Rouge Artist Intense [all shades]

What a great collection!

I got this one in 37 - Satin Bright Pink. It's a beautiful bright pink that's probably more fitting to summer but will work for when I feel more bold during the fall or winter.

It's a little drying and can tend to settle into lines or cling to flakes. I wear with my Fresh Lip Balm and it does seem to help. I love how matte and how …

92$ for this (in Canada) is crazy. I went to Sephora and asked for a sample and I'm glad I have. I think I tried it about three times? I've stopped using it and will try again in a few days. I'll be back to update my review if I notice something different.

First of all, I love the texture. It feels light and powdery (it is NOT a moisturizer, it's a daily treatment …

Cleansers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Cleansing Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2011

I got this as part of a Josie Maran Kit that I got as a 500 points gift from Sephora. The kit contained a Mascara, Hair Serum, Argan Oil, Gloss and this. I was pretty excited as I loved the brand... Before I used the kit. Apart from the mascara this is probably the worst thing in it.

First of all it's way too greasy. I love oil as a cleanser and currently use Laura Mercier …

I bought this off Beyond the Rack for 30$ based on reviews I saw here. I don't know how much it costs in Canada but I doubt I would have purchased for full price if I didn't have a chance to try it out first.

I use it with dry hands (dip the bottle to pump into your hands otherwise I'm sure it gets quite all over the place) and apply all over my face, then massage. Then …

I got this two days ago and already have an opinion on it. If for some reason my opinion changes overtime I'll edit this review.

I usually wear lip gloss but I've been wearing lipstick for a while and my lips are even drier than usual. I considered buying La Mer or Chanel's Hydramax but finally decided to go for a cheaper lip balm and chose this one upon recommendations …

Sep/19/2011

This is the best lipstick I have ever tried. I went to the Chanel counter to get Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle 05 but the SA kind of pushed this new line on me. I tried it and went back for the lipstick. There are 8 shades in the line: 2 beige tones, two pinks, 3 reds and 1 brown tone. By all means DO NOT trust the colors they show you online, they do not match the actual shades at all! Go to the …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer in 7 Pink

I got this one in pink as it supposedly helps to brighten your complexion and covers yellow tones. It works fine. At first I didn't notice any change but I do find now that my foundation (Guerlain Lingerie) lasts longer... But I bought a looser powder to set my foundation so perhaps this is it!

I'm not THAT impressed with it but I have dry skin and so it kind of helps. It …
