Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Concealer

This concealer did not look good on me. I have this in the shade R49, for Tan to Dark skintones. I tried to use this as an under eye concealer and to cover up my acne scarring, but both of my attempts ended disastrous. It provides exceptional coverage, but this stuff doesn't blend well. The consistency reminds me of MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer, another concealer I have issues with …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel - Eye

Oct/28/2016

I've noticed that when I rub this into my eye area, it leaves a sticky residue. I get the same feeling when I use the moisturizer that coincides with this Hydro Boost line. Not sure what that's about. Anyways, I've used this for about a month daily and I didn't see any improvement in my dark circles. My under eye area was hydrated, but that's not the only thing I look for …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel

This moisturizer is okay. It doesn't really do anything for my areas of difficulty (seasonal eczema flare ups). However, I can see myself reaching for this in the summer due to its formula being lightweight. I wanted to love this but it's not something I can see myself using
daily year round.

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED3 Eyeshadow Palette

Oct/28/2016

Urban Decay always has top notch eyeshadow quality, so that's not an issue here. I don't care for the shades Strange and Dust because they look ashy on my skintone, for reference I'm an NC45. I'm able to create several different looks with the other shadows, they blend extremely well and last for hours when used with an eyeshadow primer. The price I paid for this was $64 CDN …Read more

I love this setting powder. Some setting powders I have tried leave me looking either extremely ashy or like I have a serious cocaine addiction (MUFE, I'm looking at you!), but the yellow in this neutralizes with your skin and doesn't show on flash photography. I use this when I bake on my T-Zone area and it does an amazing job on highlighting and controlling oil. This retails for $20 - …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2016

Does a really good job at prolonging the wear of my makeup (8 - 10hrs with minimal to no touchups). My only issue with this is the colour of the bottle. It's so easy for foundation and concealer to stain the exterior because it's white as hell. Then again, I'm a little OCD when it comes to things looking clean. The price is a little out of my range ($34 - 40) but it lasts me for a …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - FaceStudio Master Fix Wear Boosting Setting Spray

Oct/28/2016

I'm surprised this doesn't have more reviews. Anyways, I wasn't in the mood to purchase the UD All-Nighter Setting Spray for $40, so I picked this up instead for $8 - 12. It's a decent setting spray. The smell kind of puts me off, but then again, it is a bunch of chemicals in a bottle. I haven't tried this out in the summer so I don't know how well this would hold up …Read more

Concealers - L.A. Girl - PRO Conceal HD Concealer

Oct/28/2016

I have the concealer shade in Fawn (which is a tad too dark) and the corrector shade in Orange. I believe I paid $4 - 6 for each at my local beauty supply. It's always hard for me to find a concealer that colour matches me correctly. It's always either too dark or too light, never an in between. The concealer has a nice consistency, and the brush makes application relatively easy …Read more

Oct/28/2016

This powder is super expensive! Holy crap! I received this as a gift from my best friend on my birthday, and when I searched up how much she paid for this I literally gagged (It retails for $58 CDN). I don't use this powder to set my foundation because it's too dark for me (I received this in Med/Dark and has medium coverage. I only use this powder in the summer time when I wear a light …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Maybelline New York - Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2016

I don't think this primer is bad, then again I understand why so many people would give this product low reviews. I mean, if the name of your product has the words "Instant Pore Eraser", people are going to expect the product to do just that. With that being said, this primer did not erase my pores. However, my skin was left soft like "baby skin". I've only used this …Read more
