I have moved away from all powder products like blush and bronzer and have been obsessing over gel products like this. this Clinique item is nothing new in the market, and in fact it is quite similar in color and texture to their men's Face Bronzer gel.

One big tip when using these is that they work better UNDER moisturizer. Apply it as well as u can, leave it set for a minute or …

Moisturizers - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

Nov/30/2016

I did not think I would like this SPF moisturiser as much as I do.

Low UVB, high UVA, SPF15 moisturisers are becoming harder and harder to find. They are recommending higher than SPF25 now but I am pretty sure I apply the previously recommended amount, if not more. I do not want to load skin with unnecessary UVB protecting chemicals when I do not stay in direct sunlight a lot. Mineral …

Just getting my 3rd tube of this at 50% off from TBS website and thought it was time for a review. I have learned to love it so much that it deserves a review. Especially being so often misunderstood.

This is not a proper primer, so if you are looking for something to hold your makeup in place this will not do. What it does very well is mattify OVER.

I use gel tint …

Blush - Hard Candy - Cheeky Tints

These are wonderful, but only if u apply your mousturiser on top of it.

I have four shades, the bronzer and three of the lighter shades that I mix as blush. They have a cream-gel consistency with some slip.

First, I was scared GODDESS would be orange, but it isn't. It's much better than the Sally Hanson Body in Deep for example. The stain left behind is even more …

Highlighters - Hard Candy - JUST GLOW! ILLUMINATING DUO Candle Lit

This one is Oh so nice!
Much better than the darker duo Twinkle Star. There is one pink and one golden champagne shade. The colour is not the only difference. They have different finishes and even pick up differently on a brush.

The first shade is so pretty. Subtle sheen with pink purple undertones, quite similar to Doll Face in colour but obviously much more subtle. Love how fine …

Contour - Kat Von D - Shade & Light Contour Palette

Mar/01/2016

I have to give it 5 stars even if I will not repurchase. It is hard to create a 6 shade palette that will cater to dark skin and warm and cool undertones. They have done a pretty good job. But I will not repurchase.

my favorite shade of the whole palette is the first contour shade which has NYX's old formula Taupe blush's pink purple undertones! I would love to find a dupe …

Contour - wet n wild - Coloricon Contouring Palette

The contour shade is very different in the new formula. I almost put it back on the shelf, but then decided not.

None of new contour palettes are neutral enough to be proper contour shades but they make great bronzers. Not even the Kat Von D Shade Light has a proper dupe for Kevin Aucoin Medium.

Coming back to the contour shade in the WnW palette, it contains no red and no …

Got this in convenient Sized to Go 30 ml tube for $12 CAD and have been loving using it as my daytime under eye cream, under sunscreen.

Love the ingredient list and the hydration level is perfect for an eye cream. The luminosity is perfect as well, which is a must for me since I still need it to look undetectable.

Previously I was using Paula's Choice Pure Radiance …

This little powder is such a MISUNDERSTOOD beauty.
I have repurchased and will continue to for a very long time. If they make it.

This is a very sheer powder with light mattifying power with fine shimmer that give it luminosity. It is not as shimmery as wnw Reserve Your Cabana, but it is not too far from it.

Do NOT use this on an oily T zone! You will hate it and come …

Pressed Powders - Bourjois - Healthy Balance Unifying Powder

Dec/08/2015

Not sure what rating to give to this, maybe a 4.5. I just wish it had a touch more coverage.

I use no liquids or creams, only powder over a generous application of sunscreen. So I have tried several inexpensive or midrange powders and use a few of them daily, on different parts of my face depending where I need more oil control or coverage.

I had been curious about Healthy …
