So just what exactly is Oleo Complex? In my opinion it's L'Oreal (mother company of Kerastase) trying to ride the coat tails of Olaplex. I really think this oil is a hyped up version of regular oils that will of course soften and calm crazy hair. What i don't like about it is there is no lasting effect. It doesn't repair, it just masks. Thats fine if thats what you want but …Read more

There are great products, mediocre products and crappy products out there and what works for one may not work for another. When the whole BB/CC cream hit I just rolled my eyes at more bs money grabs as thats always a part of this billion dollar industry BUT when I find something awesome then Im pretty happy about it. This CC cream by Smashbox is perfect for me. The coverage is wonderful and I …Read more

I love this palette. The pigment in the shadows is outrageously intense. Love that you can use the shadows wet or dry and after using them wet, they dont crust over. The metallics are so pretty and they look gorgeous and deep. Love love love this palette!!

Coconut oil is fantastic for hair and skin. I don't buy the most expensive but I do make sure its virgin (only pressed once) and pure. The great thing about coconut oil is that it actually penetrates the hair shaft as opposed to just sitting on top of the strand. Because it does penetrate, it conditions, restores etc. I could never get my hair to grow because of breakage from dying it and …Read more

I love how some people love it and others simply hate it. I really do like this primer though, you can't beat the price...eight bux at Walmart in Toronto. I used the illuminating primer and last time and it lasted forever. This time I'm trying the skin perfecting one. Tried a bit on back of hand, I love the silicone smoothness. I really think it's comparable to higher end …Read more

I read an article where several different make up artists were asked what were some of their "must haves" in their make up bags. Most of them said Nars Orgasm blush. I finally decided after that to give it a shot and I have to say I really do find it incredible. I've never been able to wear blush without it looking so fake and unnatural. This blush actually looks so fantastic and …Read more

I have blue eyes and bought the Bronze Brilliance #15. This eye shadow is absolutely amazing. The pigment is so intense. For day wear all I have to do is go over my lid lightly with my finger and the shimmer is lessened while the pigment stays true and gorgeous. It brings out the blue in my eyes beautifully. I spritz my shadow brush with a bit of water and pass it over the shadow lightly, the …Read more

I love this foundation. I am a make up junkie tried and true and I hold no loyalties unless a product has proven to be superior. I admit for drugstore cosmetics I am partial to Revlon anyways but ya, this stuff has amazing coverage, looks so dewy and is awesome. I recently tried Rimmel 25 hour and loved it too, but this new Airbrush Mousse has taken the first place position now. xoxoxo

I read some reviews on here and decided to give this foundation a try. I have about five different kinds I'm using right now and not completely happy with any. I just ran out of Revlon photo ready which I quite like but I think I prefer this Rimmel now. It happened to be on sale ($8.50)at my Shoppers so I grabbed it. I had a bit of an issue with the shades as they are quite limited and you …Read more

I love this mascara.They no longer make this color....craaappp. they have come out with this horrible plum color that makes my eyes look tired.
