Lipstick - RIMMEL - Provocalips 16HR Kiss Proof Lip Colour

This is the BEST BEST BEST. I bought "heartbreaker" & "make your move". Both are perfect. Make your move is a natural pinkish nude and heartbreaker is a deeper red that is natural but still bold. Both colors last ALL DAY. I can easily go all day without reapplying...even after that 1st, 2nd and 3rd coffee or water. It's amazing. No more lipstick smudges!! The one …Read more

Liquid - CLARINS - Ever matte [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/16/2013

I was not expecting to fall in love with this Clarins foundation. I had never used many Clarins products before, but had received samples from time to time and really liked everything I tried . I picked up the ever matte foundation in honey beige, in a pinch when I ran out of my Laura Mercier Tinted Foundation. That being said, I really really love this Clarins foundation. It has wonderful …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Original Dry Shampoo

It's been awhile since I've written my last product review...and I must say, this Batisse Dry Shampoo is SOO great, I had to write a review. It is one of the very very few things that I've stayed brand loyal to. I purchase my Batisse at Winners/ Marshalls and pretty much anywhere I can get it on sale. The bottle is relatively small, but lasts at least 2-3 months...and I use it …Read more

WOW WOW WOW.

i am so mad at myself for not purchasing this YEARS ago. It is the best best best eye product i have ever used. I have always suffered from smudged eyeliner, and had since given up hope for long lasting eye makeup! that was until i discovered this primer potion. i don't know how it works- but man is it amazing. i am now able to wear eyeshadow without creasing! and …

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Laguna

Apr/25/2009

Not bad! I love the bronze color, comes off very natural. and I like that it has tiny 'nars' esque shine in it (i.e. golden shimmer, but very tasteful and glam)

I think it is a tad on the expensive side...and I am still a little bit too pale to use this all over my face and I can only use a tiny tiny bit with a blush brush to apply. my skin color is a C3 in Mac (if that is a …

Cleansers - Spectro - Jel Cleanser for Blemish-Prone Skin

Apr/25/2009

I ALWAYS seem to be going back to this cleanser...i've been using it on and off and on and off and on and off for about... 10 years. I can't say enough about it.

It is a weird jelly texture...and it smells kinda medicinal but it works like a charm. It doesn't make your skin feel like it's overly 'clean' like tingly or anything, but it is SO gentle it works …

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Mascara

Mar/07/2009

I think that it is really difficult to find a nice mascara, that doesn't clump, adds volume, adds length, and doesn't SMUDGE!!
this one does all of the above. It also helps to hold a curl which is kinda nice. I am a big fan. I really like it.

It's a tad pricey- but it is worth it...I don't know if I would make this my HG mascara, but it is definitely a …

Cleansers - Neostrata - Foaming Glycolic Wash (AHA 20)

4.0

Mar/04/2009

In general- I LOVE Neostrata products. They are wonderful.

Anyway, this wash is so great. I never repeat purchase, but I will definitely repurchase this wash. It foams up wonderfully, it does not dry out my skin, removes makeup, and exfoliates the skin! I've been using this facewash with the glycolic toner (see reviews) and my skin has been much softer!

This is a great …

Lotions/ Creams - Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream

5.0

Mar/03/2009

I live in Canada...and in the winter time my hands are so dry, itchy, and painful! But this hand cream is fantastic!

My mom recently bought me this "Neutrogena Norwegian Formula" set- it comes with hand cream, foot cream, and this body lotion. It is all the same texture...the weird clearish gluey looking formula. But it works so well!!

I love it. I have really dry …
