I am writing this review after using this product for 2 months, once a week.

I have oily skin my pores get clogged very easily. I went into Sephora and asked for a mask that wouldn't completely dry out my skin and leave it peeling and something that made my skin feel cleaner. I was recommended this. this also happens to be the first mask I tried from Origins and i am looking …

I wanted to like this so bad. I have an oily T-Zone. This was so disappointing. I use the MUFE setting spray and I love it but since its $40+CD, I was looking for a cheaper alternative.

Pros:
- It is very cheap and is definitely affordable
- The packaging is amazing. The bottle is light weight and great for carrying it around too
- The spray comes out evenly and the …

Jan/11/2016

I am NC 35 for most MAC foundations. I ended up getting Shell while looking for a highlighter that wasn't as expensive as Becca. It was an impulse buying because they only had three CCBs in display and even though the lady told me there were other colors that would look more "natural" for brown skin, I ended up buying Shell.

Pros:
-It does not look like it is just …

(This review is for the Instant Matte BB cream) While at Walmart, I saw a tester for this BB cream and after applying a little in my hand, I gave in decided to buy in the shade 02 Medium. It smells like chemicals and the texture is similar to a thick cream.

Pros:
1) It is easily blendable. I used a Real Technique buffing brush to blend it and it went on smoothly
2) It is …

I wanted to use a CC cream because I was getting tired of using the Maybelline poreless matte For Me foundation. So, I went to Shoppers and this one caught my eye. Even though it wasn't a CC cream, I got it nonetheless bc I wanted to. I believe it was $10.99 before tax
It is marketed as a BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer (supposed to be 9 in 1) and I got it in the shade Light to …

This was my first dewy foundation. I walked into a Shopper Drug Mart and just asked the lady behind the counter to help me find a dewy foundation and this is what she recommended to me. I got it with $14 something after sale but the original price in Shoppers is around $20CD. Though Walmart does tend to have drugstore makeups at a little cheaper price.

I have mixed feelings about this …

This product was weird for me. I was at Target (in Toronto, that's the only place where you can find E.L.F. products) and it caught my eye because of it packaging.

Pros:
1) Its pigmentation is really good.
2) It won't budge from your cheeks at all
3) Its packaging with a cute black pump is really nice and hygienic to use. I've heard some people say …

Apr/09/2015

I am currently using this foundation in Pure Beige (235).
My friend loved this foundation and told me to try it out since I wanted to get a new foundation. I was reluctant to get it because I have a lot of horror stories about its sister foundation, the Maybelline Fit Me foundation for dry skin.
I am honestly impressed by this. I have been using it for two weeks now and it does what …

Apr/09/2015

Why i got it: I was on a hunt for a concealer that would hide my dark circles. I wanted a drug store product since I wanted to test the waters first.
I decided to buy since I had used the Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation before (in 220 I believe).
What I got: The woman who worked there adviced me to get a shade lighter since my dark circles are really dark. So I ended up getting the …
