I got a 15ml sample of this product. While being a big Tarte makeup fan, I'm not sold on this moisturizer. It has a gel consistency, opaque in colour, and smells a bit like lavender to me but fades quickly. It's a bit sticky after it is applied so you have to wait to let it dry before applying makeup. I'm more hit than miss with primer so I'm usually applying makeup right over …Read more

I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart for about $34. One of the consultants pointed it out to me. I've been using it for a couple weeks and I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it. It has a weird texture (like little lumps) which I'm presuming comes from whatever is inside it that sucks up all the oil on your face. Once it's on, you don't see the lumps, it just kind of melts …Read more

I love this brush! I bought it to use with my Dermablend intense camo powder foundation. I swirl the brush into the powder just a little bit and then swirl on my face. The coverage is lovely, no streaking. I find that if I have some areas that need extra coverage, I just go back over it with the powder and brush and it builds the coverage nicley. Bought it on sale at London Drugs for about $10.

I agree with the previous poster, the light neutral turned me orange! I had bought it for myself as a gift for xmas but was trying to finish up some other makeup before trying this one. Unfortunately once I tried it and realized how orange I looked, it was too late to return or exchange. The airbuki brush was lovely though and made the makeup apply nicely. Waste of money though. Oddly enough the …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Quo - Blending Sponge

Feb/22/2016

I bought this at Shoppers for $6 after reading the reviews on here. I have not purchased nor tried the $30 Beauty Blender sponge so cannot compare. I have never used a sponge before but was wanting to have a more natural look with my foundation and blur out my fine lines and pores. After opening I noticed some weird dents in the sponge but it did not effect its usage. I applied my foundation to …Read more

I like it. I've been using it for about 3 weeks - I'm taking the 4 week guarantee challenge from Nivea - but I'm not sure if it has done anything to my skin. I put it on in the morning under my usual day cream. It feels great going on and disappears completely. I enjoy the light pleasant scent. I then put my Nivea day cream overtop. Does not feel greasy. All in all, I like but I …Read more

I really like this foundation. It has a medium to full coverage that I like but can also be sheered out when used with a beauty sponge. I use the Quo one from Shoppers. It lasts all day long without touch-ups. It does need a powder over top. The only place I notice where it gets sketchy during the day is under the nosepads of my glasses. The bottle is genius - as you pump more out the bottom …Read more

I had high hopes for this hair colour. Who doesn't want to have younger looking hair?I have quite a few greys and left this product on for about 35 minutes which is 10 minutes longer than recommended in the instructions. I'm used to leaving it on for 45 minutes as per the Loreal Excellence instructions. As soon as I looked at my roots after rinsing, I knew I'd be having to recolour …Read more

I was skeptical of this serum when I got a free sample from Lancome. I started to use it in the mornings (I think you are supposed to use it at night but I had read it makes a great primer) and started noticing a difference in my skin texture and tone within a couple of weeks. Since then I bought the full size version and use it every morning. It has evened, cleared and I *think* reduced my pore …Read more

I got a same of this today from Lancome. I wish I knew that it contained patchouli. I hate patchouli! Needless to say, I hate this fragrance. I got a small dab of it on my hands and I have washed them at least 10 times with 4 different soaps and the scent is still lingering. I have a headache from it now.
