Palettes - Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

Jan/07/2015

Was in a really bad mood yesterday, like hormonal, feeling like a troll, so the hubby gave me some extra dough for retail therapy and where did I go?! Oh yes, Sephora... I had been eyeing a high end highly rated palette for so long, but could never bring myself to splurge, that's a weeks worth of produce shopping for me!

I spoke with one sales assistant saying I was tossed …

Moisturizers - Burt's Bees - Sensitive Eye Cream

3.0

Dec/29/2014

It didn't do much for my fine lines or general appearance, 3 months into trying it, it also started to clog pores around my eyes and I was getting those weird white bumps (not zits) around my brows and the under eye where it is thinner skinned. I only use it after my facials now because it's just not suited for my daily use.

Moisturizers - Burt's Bees - Intense Hydration Night Cream with Clary Sage

Meh. Just meh. It's kind of a drying lotion... odd, I used the entire line from Burt's Bee's for some time trying to get away from a few ingredients in other products I had been using prior. I don't find myself reaching for it often, but will use it at night after deep cleansing/scrubs now rather than a nightly lotion. Doesn't seem to do me any favours for the price. …Read more

Don't get me wrong, it's good but not that good and I regret having paid the price for this. It's heavy, sits on top of the skin, doesn't really absorb, causing some pore blockages and now that I've gone to beauty oils I will never use another heavy face lotion again. It's okay if you have very dry skin I guess but if you have any type of oil production in your …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Calamine Lotion

Dec/29/2014

HG product, I use it on a weekly basis, on the side of baking soda masks, sugar/oil scrubs, this applied as a mask for a few hours while I bop around the house has made huge changes to my skin. I've gotten away from using almost all store bought chem based products in favour of natural home ingredients, just the very basics and Calamine is one of my favourites to deal with clearing up zits …Read more

I haveT-Zone skin with some fine lines, dry cheeks and some occasional breakouts and my skin hates most things. Thin/pale and of Irish/Scottish descent so I have to be careful not to mess with it too much.

This summer I made a terrible mistake having tried Pur mineral make up and have been battling issues ever since. Blocked pores on my cheeks, under my eyes beside my nose, weird …

A great smudger and eyeliner duo. I use this multiple times per week, love love love how quick and easy it is to get a lined and slightly smudged eye. I'm terrible at applying eyeliner and this stuff works like a charm for me with it's nice angled tip (it's twistable when it gets low, so no sharpening!)

I'm a mascara addict, so when I can splurge on high end ones it makes me happy... I was very pleased with this splurge, unlike other reviewers I actually enjoyed the brush tip for getting the inside and outer lashes, it gives me length with volume without looking spidery or that "too much" look. It's a wetter mascara, but not oily or weirdly wet like some can be, no goops, no …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Colour Surge Eye Shadow Soft Shimmer in Frosted Blossom

This is my go to shimmery pink/highlighting pan. I've had it for over a year now and it lasts a long time, you can use it to build up other looks, line the inner eye or do the brow, there is no creasing or fall out. My only issue is for the price, it could have better pigmentation as a standalone product.
