I just repurchased this, so I knew I had to write a review. I've been using cleanse off oils for years now. I have used shisedo, boscia's makeup breakup oil, Mac cleanse off and DHC cleanse off oil. I'd go back and forth repruchasing Mac and DHC. Though they are really pricey at $30-40 CAD a bottle. I wear sunscreen and foundation and waterproof mascara so a cleanse off oil as a …Read more

I discovered this lip balm from using the MUA 'Top Picks' sorter. I decided to pick one up. I have tried so many lip balms. I have chronic dry lips that are prone to peeling. Although I love using Aquaphor, I needed a day time lipbalm that doesn't look and feel so greasy. This lip balm delivers! I don't have to use this often because it does a good job of keep the lips …Read more

I bought this when my dry, eczema, acne prone skin was going through a terrible phase during winter. It is expensive for what it is( ~$50/30ml CAD from the Hudson's Bay). It did help calm down my dry irritated skin. However it didn't last long. It was odd that it felt and looked really greasy on my skin but I didn't feel my skin being moisturized if that makes sense. It's also …Read more

I love Illamasqua blushes! Love is peach coloured matte finish blush. The texture is soft and buttery and no shimmer at all. It brings life to your face. It's a really great spring and summer blush for my Nc40-42 skin tone. Illmasqua blushes are so pigmented that you need a light hand with most of their blushes. However it's great for us medium to dark skin toned gals as we can build up …Read more

First off, my skin is dry, sensitive and very acne prone. I have acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone. I normally wear full coverage foundation and I have use a lot of them to cover up and none of them ever looks natural. I decided to try an Asian BB cream finally and after using it for a month I will stop buying foundation. This stuff has been seriously almost life-changing for …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Lash

I bought the mini-size of this, $12 CAD. It's not a great impulse buy. I found it didn't wow me. I felt it didn't last on my lashes and easily smudged, probably because it isn't waterproof and I do wear contacts with a tendency to go teary-eyed. I found drugstore mascaras can do a better job of thickening my lashes without making them look clumpy like this did. I also …Read more

First off the packaging of this is gorgeous with so much detail on the lid! It's perhaps one of the prettiest compacts I have owned. However the compact itself is quite heavy. This is a late review as I used this in the summer of this year 2013 and have finished it. It is my go-to setting powder for the summer. I normally have dry skin but I have oily skin in the humid summer months. This …Read more

Initially I loved this foundation. It is travel friendly and easy to use. I would take a foundation brush, swipe from the stick and apply to my face. It is a cream foundation and great for dry skins like me. I found that the shade honey was my exact match nc40/42. It had the right amount of yellow tones to it. It is creamy and very easy to blend. Best to blend out with a sponge or beauty blender …Read more

Nov/23/2013

This has got to be one of the best brush cleansers out there. Before this I have used MAC, Sephora brand, and Beauty Blender cleanser for my brushes. I wear long-wearing, full coverage foundation and concealer because of my skin. These are the types of foundation that are hard to remove from your brushes. I also use sigma brushes (face kabuki), and sephora brand brushes that are dense and hard to …Read more

Great brush! I have 2 other brushes that are similar to this brush at different price points. I can compare this brush to Sephora's #56 (~ $30) and Sigma F82 (~$16). The price of this is UD GK brush is ~$25. I have to say this is very soft and great for liquid and cream foundation. The bristles are firm and not flimsy and very dense, yet easy to clean! I've used it with a variety of …Read more
