Eyeliner - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Liner - Nude

4.0

At first, I found that the liner looked cakey on my waterline and inner corners. With my second trial, I used a light hand to swipe the liner instead, along the inner corners of my eyes. I found that the latter method provided a much more natural and smooth finish.

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Color Surge Duo in Strawberry Fudge

3.0

Dec/17/2014

I'm on the fence about this. The colours are soft, shimmery and easily blendable. The pink isn't too pale either. It's a nice pale pink that shines gold in the light. The qualm that I have with it is that there seems to be so little product in it for $30 CAD (after tax). I feel like I can find the same quality and shades in cheaper duos or larger palettes. :/

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

2.0

Got this on the recommendation of a sales associate for a lightweight, oil free base. I'm sure it looks great, but for almost $80 CAD you get:
-parabens
-strong chemical and metallic scent

If we're going to pay that price, they should at least make better efforts to use better quality ingredients.

Palettes - essence - All about Sunrise

4.0

Nov/05/2014

This palette applied smoothly and pigmented. It doesn't feel chalky and the shimmer is really nice. The only thing is that there is no matte shade in here even though they claim there is one. I find that when you apply it with your fingers, there is some fall out but when applying with a brush, it seems to be fine. Overall, this is a great palette for a night out or when you're looking …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Feria Wild Ombre

Sep/05/2014

I have short, dark black, and coarse hair strands. Personally, I found my experience with this product okay. Just a note though, that this was my first time dyeing my own hair. I would not advise anyone with short hair to ombre their hair themselves; it's really difficult! I bet dyeing a whole head of hair would be easier because you don't have to worry about gradation and length etc. …Read more

Liquid - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/10/2014

Got this foundation as an alternative for my Korean BB Cream, in which the latter became too heavy and pale for the summer. So I visited Sephora to get a skin match; at first, they matched me up with Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer... but that smelled really metallic, was hard to build, and was super-duper expensive!

So I went back and got this UD Naked Foundation instead …

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal - Silver

Jul/10/2014

Just a heads up that this is my first time using a silver eyeliner, so I don't have anything else to compare it to. Other than that, I love this eyeliner. It was smoother and more pigmented than the other ones at SDM. One thing I noticed though in store was that it was easy to wipe off. However on the eyes, it stayed for quite a while though.

3 stars for the price because it was …

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

This lipbalm made my lips peel until it's all red, and bleeding. I would not suggest this. They probably added some ingredient in it to promote peeling so that customers would continue to apply it thinking that their lips are too dry.

I guess it's back to Burt's Bees...but their lipbalms are so expensive. And their tube broke on me. :(

Powder - Annabelle - CC Colour Control Pressed Powder

Nov/05/2013

I like how the powder matches my skin tone well. It's also very fine. Don't bother with the brush though because it's super rough! They should've just not made the brush because it just creates so much garbage considering how it's all mass produced...

Overall, I would buy it again if they had slimmer/ less wasteful packaging. This product was on the pricier …

Shampoo - LUSH - Godiva Solid 2-in-1 Shampoo Bar

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2013

I love the smell of Godiva but I don't like how drying it is. On the first week of purchase, it made my hair feel so soft but now, my scalp and my hair have become so dry. Another conditioner definitely needs to be paired up with it and maybe even some of that Snake Oil at Lush. But no, I wouldn't be purchasing it again. I'm pretty sure there are other bar shampoos that aren't …Read more
