I recently finished my two bottles of the Olay sensitive foaming cleanser. It had been recommended to me about a year ago on the boards as a fuss-free cleanser that wouldn't bother my skin. When I finished it I realized I think I could find something better for around the same price. I already use the Cerave PM, so I decided to try the hydrating cleanser as it has pretty similar ingredients …Read more

Bottom line: Wonderful little compact and a great powder. Matte but not dull. My oils do break though towards the middle of the day but I just re-powder and its all good. This fits so nicely in my purse I'm absolutely in love with it. I used the rimmel stay matte powder for years before this and now I'm totally convinced.

I can't speak to the acne fighting medication, but to cover acne this concealer is great!
It works very well when used before foundation as it dries quite quickly and has very good coverage. It hides redness very well and lasts a long time. This is my HG concealer for spots. I'm sure the acne medication in it works decently as a bacteria fighter and a barrier to the rest of your …

I bought these after seeing some youtubers rave about the staying power. I have serious issues with my lipstick lasting, even with all the tips and tricks and great formulas, my lipstick just never lasts.

I bought the shades: make your move, heart breaker, kiss fatal. They are all very pigmented, matte/satin finishes.
I have only used make your move so far, and I love it. I put it …

Out of all the bronzers I've tried, I always go back to this one! I have this in "sunny" and it's such a great product. The price can't be beat and its a perfect matte warm brown. Not orangey and not muddy. You cannot go wrong with this bronzer.

I'd love for people to know how to use this product before they rate it badly.
You put it UNDER your moisturizer. It itself is not a moisturizer.
If you used it correctly then by all means, rate it however you like.

I like this product a lot, it helps my moisturizer work more effectively.
However I'm not sure if it breaks me out, it's been really hard for …

A new drugstore mascara(!!!), I was like a kid on Christmas morning. This is finally available at some Target's in Toronto. I had heard about it online and in blogs, and I was patiently awaiting its arrival in Canada.

I'm very impressed with this mascara. It is effective. It is buildable. It volumizes and lengthens and thickens lashes without clumping.

My only …

This is the kind of product that makes you seriously regret all those $50 foundations you bought.
Let me start by saying I was nervous to use this foundation with rumours of oxidation going around, but, I had no issues with that.
I'm in the shade 120 buff beige. I found 115 and 120 to be pretty similar, except for 120 being the tiniest bit darker and more yellow. 110 is way too …

The new Vanity Lash Mascara has one base formula with seven wands to choose from. This is a review for the Full and Fabulous wand, which is a 100 point perk at Sephora right now.

I am a big fan of the original Buxom Lash and so I was really excited to see this new mascara and all the wand options. The base tube of mascara is 22 dollars and the wands are 11 dollars each, but when you …

I've used this oil for about 2.5 months now. I have acne prone, clog prone and dry skin. I keep the bottle in the fridge and take only a few days to a weeks worth (max) out at a time in a small bottle. I mix this with the cerave PM lotion (1/4 cerave and 3/4 safflower). I think after 2.5 months I can confidently say it does not break me out. It has worked very well for me, my face has gotten …Read more
