Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara

3.0

Aug/05/2013

It's a decent mascara especially after about a week into use - the formula gets dried out just enough to make it more usable. However, it continues to dry out rather quickly after opening. I used this for about a month before I had to throw it out because it was getting dry and clumpy on my lashes. The wand is quite nice - it is a traditional bristle style with shorter bristles that …Read more

Jul/10/2012

This is the third version of the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer range - first was the squeeze tube simply called "Instant Age Rewind Undereye Concealer" (discontinued). Second version was the "Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector" with the doe-foot applicator on one end for the concealer, and a brush applicator for the highlighter (recently discontinued in favour …Read more

Fragrances - Kiehl's - Coriander Essence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/03/2012

I just found out today that this, along with all of Kiehls roll-on essence oils, are being discontinued! I own just 2: Coriander and Pear - but I had my heart set on getting cucumber and then getting another coriander as a back up. Unfortunately, none of the Kiehls stores in my city had either of the scents left. All they had were Chinese flower and Pear left.

Concealers - Hard Candy - Undercover Agent

I quite this product actually. The stick concealer is actually not great for the undereye area since it tends to be dry and can accentuate fine lines. It does however, make for a good spot concealer on the face, and is very handily encased in the cap. This product probably should have been marketed differently than it is. However, the real gem of this duo is the eye brightener. It has a …Read more

Foundations - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

3.0

Apr/08/2012

I've had this product for about a month now, wearing it on weekends only. It may be a bit premature to do a full review but I wanted to chime in my 2 cents while this product is still fairly new on the market and people are curious about it. I would not really call this product a true BB cream in comparison to the original Asian BB creams. The texture of this is much lighter and is more …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Building Primer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2012

I bought this primer to try out since it's readily available in the North American market. My previous experience with mascara primer / bases was Kanebo (Kate) which was excellent but not easily available - my wish was to find something relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. Unfortunately, the Clinique Lash Building Primer did not live up to the expectations.

Treatments (Eye) - Mary Kay - Targeted Action Eye Revitalizer

Feb/18/2012

When I first used this, I wanted to re-wash my face to get rid of the stink! It seriously smells like pickled cat pee. I've been wanting to use this quote, so here it is - the smell is equivalent to the review of 30 Rock's Jack Donaghy Estate wine; to quote: <i>Donaghy Estates tastes like the urine of Satan after a hefty portion of asparagus.</i> …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Mary Kay - Timewise Firming Eye Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2012

I bought this cream to help combat the dry Canadian winters which brings out fine lines under my eyes. This was for night time use only since it was more emollient and I preferred something lighter with SPF for the day time. The consistency of this cream is quite nice - not oily but not too light - it had an airy whipped quality that made application easy and it absorbed quickly. It's …Read more

Cleansers - Yves Rocher - Micellar Cleansing Water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2011

This is an excellent micellar cleanser. My skin is combo and sensitive, with some dry patches and this cleanser does not leave a tight feeling on my skin (I used BIoderma in the past) but removes every last trace of makeup. I primarily use this as a finishing step after I deep cleanse with cleansing oil, but I have also used this as the sole makeup cleanser when in a rush, with superb results. …Read more

Concealers - RIMMEL - Match Perfection Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2011

This is a pretty darn good undereye concealer at any price range, and to find it at the drugstore is just icing on the cake. I only use this for my undereye area since it has light reflective properties and a slicker texture (I prefer dryer, more pigmented concealers, or even mineral makeup for spots) and it really gives me a rested appearance even though I have fairly dark undereye circles. …Read more
