Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED [DISCONTINUED]

A fine investment if you're looking for a palette of quality pigmented, buttery smooth neutrals. If you prefer matte shadows, this may not be for you, as it only contains two (Naked and Buck). The two matte shades are perfect crease colours for me. There are so many possibilities with this palette, in terms of combinations. I like to play around with the colours. I haven't really …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - ColorBurst Lip Butter - Tutti Frutti [DISCONTINUED]

I debated back and forth whether I should purchase this product or not, then I read a review comparing it to the Revlon gloss in "Coral Reef" and knew right away that this lip butter NEEDS to be in my collection. I found it for about $6 (CAD). I really do love this colour ~ it's not a whambam orange on my lips, but more of a coral but on the orange side. It is much like Coral …Read more

Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot in Rubenesque

Perfect for on the go. Many days I wake up and don't feel like doing the eyeshadow thing. One layer of Rubenesque provides my lids with a subtle wash of peachy gold shimmer. I can swipe on one or two more layers to make the colour stand out more. I see many reviewers saying this is rosy or pink on their skin, but on my tan/olive skintone this appears more peachy/gold/almost a slight …Read more

Aug/15/2012

I bought this little gloss at my local dollar store for literally $1 (CAD). As soon as I put it on, my first thought was 'wow, this is pretty!' and then 'mmm, it smells good too.' then it was 'oh gosh, I can't believe I spent $24 on NARS Turkish Delight just a few months ago!' And to make matters worse, this gloss is even better than Turkish Delight: it …Read more

I love this palette. It never fails me. In fact, I notice I get a lot of compliments when I wear these three colours together. The pink colour on the lid seems to wear really well with my brown eyes, and then the brown in the crease is actually one of my favourite crease colours, it must set everything off. And the off-white cream colour as a browbone highlight and in the inner corners lights …Read more

People are constantly complaining that the pigmentation of this blush isn't great, but do you ever think that maybe it isn't supposed to be super pigmented? I personally enjoy how it's so light and provides a lovely flush of peach/coral on my olive/tan skin. I'm about NC 25-35 (depends how tan I am) and no matter what, this blush looks good; it shows up as a slight …Read more

Lip Liners - Prestige - Rosewood

Wonderful rose-coloured lip liner. It applies so smoothly and evenly without any tugging whatsoever. Can be worn alone, or paired with a balm, or accompanied with a lipstick. No matter what I do, it flatters and defines my lips. Also, it's waterproof and long-wearing so the lasting power is above average. I appreciate that the cap actually clicks on and stays on without it popping off …Read more

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

My best friend bought me this for Christmas. I don't have a PhD in describing scents, so all I am going to say is this perfume has such a pretty fruity/floral scent with a suprising soft sandalwood/musk which I just wouldn't expect from a Taylor Swift perfume. I really like it though; suitable for day time or night time wear. The bottle looks nice on my vanity, and has cute little …Read more

Concealers - essence - Cover Stick

4.0

Aug/15/2012

I like this more than I like my MAC concealer, and at a quarter of the price. I use it on any dark spots that acne scars have left behind. It does a great job of covering them up. It's not uber long lasting, but I still find the lasting power is better than MAC's. The colour match is perfect and blends right into my skin. If I were to use it for the under eye area, I'd …Read more

It's not quite black, brown, taupe, grey, nor aubergine. But oddly enough, a combination of all of them. Thank you Essence for giving us this awesomely unique colour! I urge you to try it ~ you will not be underwhelmed! For $3.99 (CAD), this little gem provides you with a perfect creamy formula, easy to work with, long-lasting and super pigmented product! I like Essence better than my …Read more
