Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Domed Shadow Brush

I loved this as an eye shadow brush, then one day needed a concealer brush in a hurry and noticed its similarities to "airbrush" concealer brushes... Anyway, now I own two of them and my sister has an incomplete eye brush kit and no idea of what she's missing.

This actually makes me regret buying the Sephora concealer brush. It was really good for blending, but it was …

I recently started wearing powder foundation, and am legitimately sad that it means getting less use out of this brush. This is how much I love it.

You have not experienced buildable coverage until you tried this. A girl at Sephora did my foundation and I asked how she got it to look so natural while covering blemishes. She said I could buy the $45 Sephora brush she'd used... Or …

Lip Treatments - Avene - Cold Cream Lip Balm

I'm on Accutane and this is really saving my life in the harsh Canadian winter. It protects and nourishes my poor tender lips and just makes them feel 100% better. There is a slight scent, but it's not much and there's no gross taste. The packaging is really solid and nice.

The only problem is that it's very thick and you can't really put it under a lipstick or …

Pressed Powders - COVERGIRL - Clean Sensitive Pressed Powder

4.0

Feb/10/2014

Overall, this is a pretty good foundation. It stays even on my dry skin, I had no breakouts or weird reactions, it's totally scentless, and it blends pretty well on top of concealer.

My two main gripes are the junky packaging and the poor shade selection. The compact has a mirror and is attractive at first glance, but it's really flimsy and the latch isn't very …

In short, this isn't really anything special. It's an okay finishing powder but just wasn't enough for me. It might be better for someone less oily.

I didn't break out from it, which is always a plus. It also has a tiny bit of sparkle for those who don't like the absolutely matte look. It's also really translucent, unlike many others that leave a hint of …

Moisturizers - Cetaphil - Cetaphil Derma Control Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30

My dermatologist is crazy about Cetaphil so I said I'd give this moisturizer a try. I've got to say, I was pleasantly surprised.

It doesn't totally prevent shine, but it definitely cut down on my oil quite significantly. It doesn't make a finishing powder obsolete, of course, but it's reduced my oil more than any primer I've ever tried did. This leads to …

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Lip Primer & Plumper

Oct/16/2013

I really wanted to love this product. I often have a problem where my lips are bumpy and my lipstick just doesn't go on smoothly. Unfortunately, this product only has one half that's half good.

The primer is simply too thick. Applying it like a lipstick leaves it caked on, and even through a few layers of lipstick you can see the beige seep through. I tried using it as a …

Lip Gloss - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Glossy Gloss

I just couldn't get this product to spread right and the pigmentation was super uneven and patchy. The packaging is nice on the outside, but the applicator is this tiny little brush you can't do anything with. You need to add a lot of product to even it out but then it's super sticky and gluey. I just can't stand the texture, and the appearance definitely isn't worth it.

Palettes - Hard Candy - Top Ten Eyeshadow Palettes

Oct/03/2013

I got this product in Naturally Gorgeous. I'll probably get at least one more in the collection. For the price, the shadow is pretty good. It pigments fairly well, again for the price, but it does tend to "powder" easily. It blends very well, and durability is surprisingly good even without a primer. There's a good variety of colour for "just above a nude" look as …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Love In Paris 05 Parisian Chic Palette

Oct/03/2013

I bought this palette primarily to fill the Naked 2-shaped hole in my heart and to do nude looks with. For some reason it's dang hard to find true mattes in cheaper palettes. This one has four true mattes, three very shimmery, and two that are kind of in between, one metallic and one more matte but with a little sparkle. It's a pretty good variety. Two shades of each are also good …Read more
