Mar/10/2015

This is a wonderful moisturizer choice for those on a budget. It comes in a generous portion size and is in a squeeze tube and I paid less than $4CAN when it was on sale. I like that it is in a tube and not a jar because it is more sanitary.

This is definitely not THE BEST moisturizer out there, however, it does its job and it a good drugstore choice for a simple moisturizer. It does …

Cleansers - Equate - Facial Cleansing Towlettes With Chamomile, Vitamin E & Triple Tea Complex

This product was awful. I returned it.

The wipes, while yes, cheap at about $8 for 120 of them, were not effective. It did not adequately remove my makeup, especially not my eye makeup (and all I wear is mascara!). I also think the size of the wipes were on the smaller size (though to be fair, not TOO small to do their job). I think the worst part was the fragrance, which I found to …

Cleansers - Olay - Shine, Shine Go Away! Shine Minimizing Cleanser

Feb/17/2015

I have combo skin. I bought this cleanser when I was experiencing a breakout on a holiday and wanted to purchase something easy on my budget. I was not looking for any miracles, just an average cleanser that gets my makeup and dirt from the day off. This cleanser works fine for that purpose. I don't think it helped my breakout, nor did it cause any further breakouts for me.

I …

Feb/12/2015

I was looking for a good quality moisturizer for my face, that was decently priced. I purchased it after reading all the great reviews on here. It was $15CAN at sephora for a small squeeze tube, so very wallet friendly for a good moisturizer.

I find this cream is extremely moisturizing, though it absorbs well and does not feel greasy. It does not affect my makeup application, either …

I have been using this off and on for years. I love the stuff. It does a superb job at hydrating.

I use this once a week after a bath for extra hydration. It smells amazing, like nutty brown sugar. It absorbs relatively quickly, though I prefer to slather it on generously and put on my housecoat or PJs so I don't have to worry about it getting on my clothes. I do have to take care …

Feb/12/2015

I picked this up while on a search for a drug-store priced moisturizing mask. I hadn't even heard of this before so I bought it on a whim. This is one of my favourite chance finds for under $5!

I first tried this as a mask. The texture was not too thick. I put on a decent layer and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I did not find it particularly moisturizing as a mask, but I also …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

Feb/06/2015

This mascara was nothing special to me. I got this with my beauty insider points from Sephora. I will not repurchase it, but I will use up the sample that I have.

I found the brush to be very large and the bristles coarse. I mean yes, it did coat my lashes and mascara was visible. However, it did not lengthen or make my lashes look larger or more plump.

I couple probably …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Ethereal

Oh wow I love the colour of this blush. It almost reminds me of Nars orgasm, which to me is slightly pinker and has more sparkle to it - but not quite a dupe. Ethereal is more corall-y to me.

The blush looked like it had some shimmer to it on the top when I bought it, but it is pretty subtle when I am wearing it. Definitely not glittery. I could wear this to the office no problem …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Powder Blush - Angel

Feb/06/2015

This is a nice blush. It is a subtle colour and goes well with most of my makeup. Definitely one of the blushes I will use when I don't want to focus on my cheeks. Very suitable for office wear as the finish of the blush is rather matte. The quality of the blush is awesome for the price too!

The only downside is the compact that this blush came in is very hard to open. I …

Feb/03/2015

I really dislike this mascara.

It coated my lashes but that was about it. It did not thicken, or lengthen or anything. It worked like a drugstore brand only for a very high price tag, and unfortunately I could not return it.

Oh, and the kicker was the glue holding the silver part of the wand came apart from the actual brush, after a little over a week of using. It was …
