Concealers - Catrice - Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer

I only use this under my eyes and while it's not the highest coverage it's definitely doing something.
Pros: Absolutely ZERO creasing even hours after application. Colour 007 Natural Rose works very well for me. Stays in place all day.
Cons: light fragrance that I actually like but would be healthier if it wasn't there. Not super high coverage, but good enough.

Mascara - Almay - One Coat Multi-Benefit Mascara

4.0

I've used maybe 7-8 tubes of this. It's a great basic mascara. Doesn't smudge or flake. It always transfers to my lids when applying but many other mascaras do that as well so I assume it is my eye shape. It's easy to clean off which is a big bonus for me. It's not my HG but I will repurchase for everyday use.

Mascara - essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

It works ok. No clumping, smudging or flaking through the day. It's not the best but it's certainly not bad. My main issue is that I can't get it off with my regular cleanser that removes all other kinds of mascaras. They don't say it on the package but this is DEFINITELY waterproof. When I wet my fingers and gently rub my lashes it doesn't budge. Keep that in mind when …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Drunk Elephant - A-Passioni Retinol Cream

Check out Dr. Dray's recommendation for how to apply this. Moisturize the skin first and then go in with the retinol. Since I've been doing it this way, I've had no stinging or dryness or peeling. I've only been using this for about a month so I can't comment on its efficacy yet.

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Definer

The Blonde colour is a perfect match for my ashy dark blonde hair. The pencil feels a bit stiff so I sometimes have to press a bit hard to get product on, and then end up with too thick a line. That might just be me being a newbie at filling in brows. I tried a creamier pencil from Annabelle and found it too easy to get carried away lol (plus the colour intended for blondes looked too red). You …Read more

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara

UPDATE on Oct. 2019: Like all good things, this is discontinued in Canada. I tried Essence brow gel and it's not a good colour for me. Anyone know of any dupes with the same beautiful golden-y colour?

My original review:
After using clear brow gels for decades, I bought this in the Light/Medium shade on a whim and I'm so impressed! I have ashy dark blond hair and this is a …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2017

I've used this twice. Yesterday I applied with a brush and got okay results. Today with an RT sponge and result is a satin finish with zero cling to dry spots. I'll be using a sponge from now on. It also lasted longer with sponge application. Coverage is medium; I haven't tested whether it can be built up. The fragrance isn't great and definitely a drawback but at least you …Read more

Jan/03/2017

I'm very happy with this! I have dry skin but I like a very matte look, so I just apply moisturizer and ELF hydrating primer first. I apply with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and it buffs out beautifully in seconds. A little definitely goes a long way, and gives you full coverage. I don't even need to set it with powder. The colour Ivory is very neutral and matches me very well. No …Read more

Bronzers - Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Bronzer

Dec/26/2016

UPDATE: October 2019 I tried and tried to make this work but I just couldn't find a use for it. Didn't show up as a bronzer, useless as a shadow. I finally threw it out. Oh, and the smell was still there and very strong years after I opened it. Sooo glad it's out of my collection and not stinking up my makeup drawer any more.

Original review:
VERY expensive for a …

BB Cream - Physicians Formula - Super BB All-In-One Beauty Balm Cream

Light to medium coverage, and best applied with a brush (I haven't tried sponge). Price is high for drugstore. You need to set it with a powder, especially in the summer. "Light" colour still a bit dark on my fair skin and I can only pull this off in the summer. Finally, packing is squeeze tube but the opening that the product comes out of is large so I always get a big goop …Read more
