Lip Gloss - Dior - Addict Lip Gloss (All Shades)

Originally, I bought this online on a whim - I have the shade 'Angelique', a creamy pale pink. Although it is pricey, this is the least sticky gloss I have ever tried (both drugstore and high end). The glossy look lasts a fairly long time, particularly for something that goes on so smoothly and feels so light on the lips. The packaging is beautiful and a tube lasts a reasonably long …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

Feb/04/2015

I've been a loyal fan of the Sephora eyelash curler for years now and recently switched to this one - though the different shape takes some getting used to, this curler creates gorgeous curl that lasts all day long. The curling section is long enough that it gets every lash, and you don't have to squeeze too hard (or too many times) to get a good curl. I have naturally straight lashes …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Iconic Overcurl

This has been my go-to mascara for a year - nothing else I've tried (drugstore or high end) compares. It gives length and volume without getting clumpy, it's super black and it keeps my lashes curled all day, which can be a chore. I don't get any flaking or fallout and it removes easily. Well worth the price for an excellent product!

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Eyestudio ColorTattoo Metal 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow - Barely Branded

I'm a big fan of cream shadows, especially for quick makeup days. This takes seconds to apply and looks effortlessly great. When I'm in a rush, I just sweep this all over the lid, curl my lashes and put on mascara. The champagne colour is gorgeous and has a nice shimmer. The consistency is creamy and buildable. I tend to put on eyeshadow primer beforehand, but I've gone without it …Read more

Concealers - RIMMEL - Match Perfection Concealer

I like this concealer for concealing redness around the nose as well as any scarring. It's thick enough to cover without being cakey, and it blends well. My main problem is with the packaging - the brush tip doesn't really work. It would be better if it were just a squeeze tube, but the product is worth the less than ideal packaging. The tube lasts a long time as well, and it's …Read more

New HG eyeshadow primer! This really lives up to the hype; it has a sheer application and covers up any veins on the eyelids. Even on the hottest of days, my eyeshadow never budges - cream or powder. Well worth the price and a small tube lasts a long time!

Jul/03/2014

After using only drugstore powders, I finally decided to splurge on a high-end one, and I'm glad I did. This powder is a very pale purple that applies translucent, and while it was expensive ($38 Canadian), it was well worth it. It really does keep shine at bay, and somehow it adds a bit of extra coverage, despite being translucent rather than coloured. I like to apply powder with a large …Read more

Jul/03/2014

I like my eyebrows to look very natural but polished, and this product is perfect for that. The little wand makes it easy to apply and it's buildable if you like a stronger brow look. Once you get past the slightly chemical-y smell, gimme brow is a great product! There are only two shades (a lighter ash brown and a darker brown), but they're pretty universal. My main problem with this …Read more

Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder - 001 Transparent

This powder keeps me matte for about 30 seconds, and by a few hours later I'm completely oily. It smells heavy and musty, a typical powder scent. If that isn't your thing and you have oily or combination skin, then this isn't for you. I imagine for people with dryer skin or who live in colder places, it would work better, but for me it didn't work.
