Tinted Moisturizer - Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Tinted Moisturizer - Light to Natural

Apr/29/2014

I like to wear this tinted moisturizer as a base under my Physicians Formula Mineral Powder foundation. The combo of the two gives me a very nice, as close to flawless as I’m ever going to get, result.

I have also worn it alone, but I find that the coverage isn’t quite enough for my liking. It’s ok for a casual weekend day of running errands or something, but I’d certainly never …

BB Cream - La Roche-Posay - Rosaliac CC Cream

Apr/29/2014

I use a few other products from the LRP Rosaliac line, so I was very eager to try this one… and it didn’t disappoint!

The coverage of this CC cream is exactly what my red complexion (mild rosacea) needs to look evened out, but still natural and dewy. A bit of red still pokes through on my cheeks, but it just looks like natural rosy cheeks, rather than the startling flush of rosacea. …

Top/Base Coats - Unlisted Brand - Witchcraft Nail Whitener

I’m not sure this product actually “whitens” your nails, but it definitely makes them appear whiter.

It goes on clear, but somehow it has a brightness, almost a fluorescence, to it. In fact, under a black light, it makes your nails glow.

I don’t often wear dark polish, so my nails are quite white to begin with. When I add this whitener on top, my nails look amazing. I get …

Eye Shadow - Avon - True Color Eyeshadow Single Warm Black

This is the perfect shade for a smoky eye on my green eyes. It’s a blackened plum colour with a hint of shimmer. I use it as a liner, or all over my lid for a more smoky nighttime look. As long as I use a primer, the staying power is good. It’s blendable, smooth and, in my opinion, feels better than some much more expensive brands. The sponge applicator that comes in the compact is exactly …Read more

I’m glad I waited a few days before reviewing this, because if I’d reviewed it after one use, I’d have told you that I hate it! Now that I’ve used it for a few days, and adjusted how I was using it based on reading some of the reviews here (thanks ladies!!), I really like it. I’ve been applying it with a MAC 187 brush. The key for me is to build it up slowly and to wait a few minutes after …Read more

If being in love with a lipstick is wrong, I don’t wanna be right ;)

This is so much more than a YLBB colour to me. It’s YLBB, the prettiest peachy/pink ya ever did see and oh so versatile. It looks gorgeous with dark smoky eyes, but it’s also a pretty addition to a lighter look. The formula is sheer but buildable, which I also really like. Also, it’s not nearly as drying as I have …

Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Apr/02/2014

I too got this as a birthday goodie from Sephora. I used it for the first time this morning and have to admit that I was taken aback at the sight of the wand. I hadn’t read the reviews before using it, so I didn’t know to expect such an oddly shaped brush. It ended up being a breeze to use (you just need to use a bit more care to ensure it doesn’t touch your skin) The narrow end of the brush …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

It gets one lippie from me, only because I can't give it zero!

It's just a hot mess from the get-go. The brush is too curved and ends up touching my skin every time I apply this stuff. But that's not the worst part.... The worst part is the clumping. Big clumps, little clumps, clumps stuck to my lashes, clumps falling on my cheeks.

There's just no way …

After reading online reviews & descriptions of this scent, I thought I had to have it. However, after smelling it on the tester card in the store, I was less than impressed. I put the card in my coat pocket and walked away disappointed. About 20 minutes later I took my phone out of my pocket and it smelled heavenly. What was this sophisticated, yet light and cheery, familiar and cozy, yet …Read more

Highlighters - Quo - Shimmer Brick

Feb/14/2014

I didn’t need a shimmer block… I thought I was too old for “shimmer”… but it was on sale for $10.00 (regular $20.00), so I decided to give it a whirl. If I didn’t like it, I could always swap it, right? Well, as it turns out, I really like it! It comes in 2 colour palettes. A pinky bronzey mix (I didn’t check the name of this one) and a golden bronzey mix (Vegas Pyramid). Because I have …Read more
