Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

1.0

Jan/16/2016

It's a nice cheap oil cleanser with a pleasant scent. It dissolves easily in water so no need for an extra cloth to wipe off the oil. It keeps my skin moisturized and soft. Overall it's a nice cleanser!

EDIT: My skin isn't usually sensitive but every time I use this product, I start breaking out into terribly painful zits all over. Which then takes forever to recover …

Lotions/ Creams - L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I got this as a gift. I almost died when I checked the retail price ($32 CAN). Can I say overpriced much????!!!

Packaging is cute but not really practical. I'm always hyper aware of not to lose the tiny cap. Also, since it's a metal tube, I'm worried the edges are going to cut up the insides of my purses.

The cream itself is nice. Very thick and moisturizing …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I used this throughout highschool and it was my holy grail foundation. So I recently decided to revisit this holy grail foundation of mine and nothing has changed.

Medium buildable coverage with a satin finish (I say it's satin but I have very dry skin so it might be different for others). Never had any issues with it caking up on my skin. Blushes and bronzers blend easily on …

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

3.0

Jan/08/2016

The only reason I have this product is because I got it as a gift. It's a mediocre lip balm. Nothing special about it. The packaging is cute but I feel like it'll get harder to use as the dome shape of the balm wears down.

I love minty things so this balm was perfect in that aspect. Nice sweet taste with a mild minty tingly sensation.

I've recently purchased their Flexi Freedom Palette along with 3 eyeshadows: 313 - a light yellow tone matte shade, 07 - shimmery golden shade, 342 - cooler taupe shade perfect to fill in darker eyebrows)

These eyeshadows are buttery smooth and super easy to blend (even with a crappy walmart brand "blending" brush). Although the prices for each shadow is $10 in Canada …

My shade is Santa Fe. I have mostly dry skin with some slightly oily areas around my T-zone.

Pros:
- Nice light coverage, buildable to medium coverage
- Long wearing: I'm a sweaty person but this foundation easily lasts over 12hrs
- Easy to blend: whether it be an application with a stippling brush, buffing brush, finger application, it's super easy to blend …

Top/Base Coats - Essie - First Base Basecoat

Jul/04/2014

My nails have started becoming very brittle and I've been wondering why. Then I came across some reviews that this base coast has the same effect on others, too. Although it dries really fast, a base coat that causes nail to become super brittle is a no-no.

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I haven't come around another product that moisturizes and hydrates my lips without irritating my skin when my eczema flares up. Overall I love this product because it does what it's advertised for. However, the smell is a bit odd. I don't know if it's a pomegranate scent...to me it smells floral, which is unusual for a lip balm.

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Ballet Slippers

1.0

Feb/04/2014

I generally love Essie polishes and I'm in love with this colour but this particular polish is terrible. It takes way too long to dry even with a fast drying top coat. It's very sheer and streaky so it needs a minimum of 3 layers to make the polish look decent on the nails, which adds to the drying time.
