Oct/21/2013

I purchases this product based on research I have done for my complicated skin: oily, sensitive, dis-colored, red splotches, dark circles, and large pores....also prone to break outs. So, I wanted to use a powder that had full-coverage, yet light. Also, healthy and controls shine. And this is it! I have tried the most expensive products on the market and professional and spa lines. Pur minerals …Read more

Loose Powders - Unlisted Brand - Bella Pierre Mineral Foundation Powder

Dec/15/2012

I gave this a 5 star rating because it is a very good product. The overall worth and price is on the high end, however I found the face starter kit on Clearance for $23 in Canada. I saved around $80-$100. The kit (medium) contains foundation in Ivory & Cinnamon, blush in Suede, and bronzer in Starshine. Also included is a concealer brush, angled blush brush, and loose foundation brush. The …Read more

I bought this in a trial kit. It came with 2 foundation powders, 1 rice mineral setting powder, blush, and a bonus hi-def setting powder. And a kabuki came with it. I will try to focus on the foundation for this review. At first glance, I thought that everything looked quite small and it wouldn't last past a week. But I opened everything up and dumped out a small amount of foundation in the …Read more

Moisturizers - Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford - Day Moisture

Feb/29/2012

I used this moisturizer followed by Meaningful Beauty's softening cleanser. This is a great product for sensitive skin or young skin. It doesn't have any anti-ageing magical ingredients or anything like that. It is a very mild lotion. The lotion itself is medium consistency, white and spreads okay. It sits on skin white for awhile until rubbed it. I found that it took a while (10+ …Read more

Cleansers - Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford - Skin Softening Cleanser ( aka Nettoyant Adoucissant)

Feb/29/2012

This is a great cleanser for a person with sensitive or dry skin. It leaves skin feeling soft and clean. It also rinses very well. The texture is a thin, lotion-type cleanser. It doesn't lather up. Skin does not feel tight or dry afterwards. I have oily skin, and it did not control oil very much...but it didn't promise to control oil anyhow. This is very gentle cleanser and I would …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Lancôme - Absolue Premium BX Eye Cream

Feb/29/2012

I used this product after recieving it as a free gift. I am impressed that it did not leave me feeling greasy. It looked like it would be a heavy product, but it absorbs well. My eye area seems plumper and smoother. Definetly worth considering for anyone who is willing to splurge on an eye cream. Only use a small amount. Lancome products are quite rich.

Feb/29/2012

I will start this off by letting you know I have sensitive skin. I don't have a big issue with acne, however I do have hormonal breakouts. About one week a month, my chin looks like it got the chicken pox. I cannot use any cleaners that promise clear skin because I always break out, dry out, and my skin becomes red and irritated. My cosmetician belives that it is the salicylic acid and it is …Read more

Feb/28/2012

Recieved this product in the mail as a free gift. It is a very thick white cream. It slides on smooth and easily. It left my face feeling soft and rehyrdrated. I tend to get oily on my T-Zone areas, and this did not make me oily. Also, the best part about this product was that it seems to have acted as a good barrier: I work outside in cold weather and tend to get chapped and wind burned skin …Read more

Eyeliner - Lancôme - Artliner Precision Point Liquid Eyeliner

Feb/28/2012

Hands down, this is the best liquid eyeliner I have come across. I have bought this twice and will buy again. The felt tip applicator does not fray or snag in any way. That is a problem I have run into with almost every other brand of liquid liner. The tip picks up the liquid evenly without having to dip over and over (another common problemin the past. It dries on nicely, no need to go over the …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Lise Watier - Foundation Brush

Feb/28/2012

By far the best brush I have used thus far for foundation. I used to use Quo (which is great, but hard to clean). I had asked the cosmetician at Shoppers what she recommended for a brush and without hesitation she pointed to the Lise Watier brush. The price was $25, but if your someone like me who will use it daily, I highly recommend a good brush no matter what the cost. It is very soft, right …Read more
