Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/24/2015

Good mascara for the price. The curved (sorry, "claw") brush curls and coats each lash and it seems to wear well without flaking. I would probably go for a volume-boosting mascara formula next time as this gives my lashes length, curl and definition but not much volume. I love the packaging as I'm a sucker for anything cat-themed, but I don't care for the fat, round cap. It …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Goody - Heritage Collection Classic Cushion Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/24/2015

This is obviously meant to be a dupe of the Mason Pearson mixed boar and nylon bristle brush. However, the Mason Pearson is many times the price.
Goody = $11.99 CAD on sale at the drugstore (reg. $14.99)
Mason Pearson = around $200 CAD, hard to find in Canada

I admit that I have never tried the Mason Pearson brush for comparison purposes. I have tried both boar-only and …

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

5.0

Dec/22/2015

This is my go-to cleanser. It is reasonably priced and doesn't dry out or irritate my sensitive skin. My skin needs an unscented and non-foaming cleanser and this one does the same job as more expensive brands.

Eyeliner - Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2015

This works well, but the tube took a while to "warm up". I knew that this was a good product because of the positive reviews and the fact that I had chosen this product after testing nearly every black liquid liner at Sephora. (The Stila liner seemed to be the best as it was very pigmented, opaque and black. Kat Von D was a close second.)

I initially thought that there was …

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

3.0

Dec/09/2015

Likes: This makeup remover is gentle and has a light, refreshing feeling that is not greasy and does not leave any noticeable residue. I particularly like the pump top bottle that comes in the 500 mL size. This product claims to be a no-rinse formula, but there is no way I would remove makeup without rinsing my face afterwards!

Dislikes: Unfortunately, this is not the most effective …

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2015

I am reviewing Clinique's "Take the day off makeup remover for lids, lashes & lips", which is worded differently on the bottle than on this listing. I had swatched a bunch of eyeshadows over different bases on my arm and I decided to compare this remover with the popular and well-reviewed Bioderma Sensibio H2O by putting the same amount on identical cotton pads. The Clinique …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - matte revolution lipstick-blackmail

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2015

This is the best colour ever. I swatched several dark purple/berry/wine shades and chose this as the best one. I would describe it as 'blackberry'. People stop me on the street to ask what shade I'm wearing.

I gave it 4/5 because the formula is a bit smudgy. I suspect that's because it's a near-black shade and those are notoriously difficult. I would highly …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2015

I received a large sample of this product from Sephora. I do believe that it makes my lips feel softer, smoother and plumper (at least temporarily). I do not like the slightly sticky texture, and the price is too high to actually consider purchasing it.

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Polish

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2015

I tried three different Fresh sugar lip products and this is my favourite of the three. I have no complaints about how it works. It exfoliates well and leaves my lips feeling lightly moisturized afterwards. However, I do have a complaint about the price. This product is a mix of brown sugar and oils, and as others have said, you can easily make it yourself for a fraction of the price. I prefer …Read more

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment

Dec/05/2015

I did not purchase this product but received a large sample from Sephora. My main feeling about this product (and the Fresh lip range in general) is that it is vastly overpriced. You could go out and buy about 7 different flavours of eos lip balm for the same price.
