Moisturizers - Marcelle - Oil-Free Multi-Defense Lotion SPF 15

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2010

I wanted to try this lotion because I usually like Marcelle products and I prefer fragrance free skincare. Unfortunately, this lotion makes your face very shiny, which is fine if you plan to wear makeup over top, but not if you plan to skip foundation. The consistency is very thin. Personally I prefer a thicker cream, but it might be good for people with very oily skin. The pump bottle is nice …Read more

This is a bright, true red. My search for the perfect red nail polish is over! It is very opaque and goes on so smoothly. I only use one coat! I love Zoya in general because they are free of all the harmful chemicals that you find in regular nail polishes. Highly recommend!

Conditioner - Giovanni - Smooth As Silk Conditioner

Smells nice, pretty bottle and healthy ingredients. However, it is very, very drying. I assumed a conditioner called "Smooth as Silk" would be moisturizing, but I was wrong. My hair is normal to dry, and it was left so dry after using this that I could barely get a brush through my hair. If your hair is very oily, it might be ok, but otherwise, don't bother.

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin

Jun/09/2010

At first glance, this seems like a gimmick-y product, but it really works well! I'm glad I bought it. The scrublet is gentle, not rough. It is NOT meant for exfoliating. It helps to get all your makeup off and leaves your skin tingling (in a good way). I tried using the scrublet with other cleansers and it works great with anything. So once you run out of the cleanser, you can keep the …Read more

Lipstick - Alima Pure - Nourishing Lipbalm

Jun/04/2010

I have this in pomegranate which is a reddish-brown shade and I love it. It's like a lipbalm, lipstick and lipgloss all in one. It is very moisturizing but it also gives my lips colour and shine. It's inexpensive and the ingredients are amazing. All of the shades seem very natural and flattering - I can't wait to try more. My only complaint is that the packaging is sort of ugly and …Read more

Pressed Powders - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Pressed Powder

May/18/2010

I bought this powder because I wanted a setting powder that was all-natural. This one was a huge disappointment. My main complaint is the smell. It just smells... off. The best way I can describe the smell is like wet, rotting leaves, which makes me nauseous when I try to apply it. The brush it came with is completely useless. Also, I don't like how it is two different shades in one. The …Read more

Bronzers - 100% Pure - Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer

May/18/2010

I don't normally wear bronzer but this was on sale at Hautelook for just $5 so I decided to try it (it's normally CAN $32!). I have it in Honey, which is the perfect shade for very pale skintones. The first ingredient is cocoa powder - so it's literally made of chocolate! It's all natural and healthy for your skin. It doesn't have a scent. It didn't break me out. It …Read more

This mascara was okay for the first few wears, but after a couple of days, it started flaking so badly that it became completely unusable. It dried up so quickly! Avoid this one.

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

This powder has heavier coverage and a creamier texture than your average powder. It's great if you're like me and you like to wear powder alone as your only foundation. It lasts all day. It comes with a sturdy sponge that is easily washed. The compact has a separate compartment for the sponge so it doesn't have to touch the makeup, which I like. No complaints.
