I love this highlighter. It comes in a tube and has a buttery consistency, so it applies very easily to the skin (NC35). It also does not have a tendency to fade, like other highlighters may. On me, it's lasted through an eight hour day.

I think the only reason why someone may not like this is because the sparkle may be too much. I know that others may prefer a more subtle sheen …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Flared Mascara

Aug/20/2013

I bought the waterproof version of this mascara.

I have medium to short asian lashes that are naturally uncurled so they require curl, volume and lengthening. Although the product did not live up to its claim to making my lashes appear like falsies, they were able to hold curl and provide beautiful lengthening and separation for at least 8 hours. Being oily, it was a near miracle that …

This colour is absolutely gorgeous on my NC30 skin. It requires at least two coats to achieve full opacity, and it dries to a glossy finish. This nail polish is long-wearing, and maintains its glossiness even after it chips, like many of the Essie nail products.

The consistency of the product is very good as well; it spreads evenly and is not difficult to apply. Unfortunately, after …

I was first recommended this product nine years ago by my doctor, when I was suffering from frequent bouts of eczema. This product definitely helped soothe and eliminate the large rashes on my body. I still keep coming back to this product today! As someone with both eczema and sensitive skin, I can confidently say that this is the best moisturizing body lotion that I have ever …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Elements Microdermabrasion

Aug/04/2012

The cleanser is of gel form and it contains particles that have a texture similar to that of sand. It leaves my skin feeling very soft, and although I am acne-prone, it does not irritate my skin.

It is definitely a mild exfoliant, as it does not remove large areas of my skin while I am peeling. However, this cleanser is extremely efficient at eliminating the tiny bumps that I …

I have been using this product for about six months in conjunction with Differin and Clindoxyl gel, and I can say that this product has made such a huge difference to my skin care regimen! I use it in the morning and at night, prior to applying my acne medicine. I have noticed that my topical creams absorb much faster after cleansing my face with this product, and it also leaves my skin feeling …Read more

I love mac blushes. The pigmentation and texture of this product are no exception. I returned it, however, after a friend asked if I were sick while I was wearing it. Probably not for those with fairer skin, even when applied with a light hand.
