I bought this cream after doing a lot of searching online for a good cream that isn't full of chemicals and wouldn't irritate my already red and very dry skin. Canadian winters aren't the most gentle on your skin, and my efforts of only using coconut oil left me with alligator skin. I wanted to get something that wasn't from a drugstore (you can't read half the …Read more

I recently purchased this blush because my girlfriend who is a makeup artist said it would look great on my skin as it's very fair.

It's expensive but gives a great subtle flush to my fair skin. The packaging is cool, but bulky, and takes up a lot of space in my makeup bag.

It doesn't irritate my sensitive and reactive skin at all and looks great when paired …

I had never been good with cream blushes, but because I have skin that tends to be on the drier side I usually look better in cream blush.

I got this in Cheeky and absolutely love the colour it gives me. It looks really bright in the tube but actually gives a nice, naturally pink flush to my fair skin. It's super easy to blend and not sticky or heavy at all! Even my girlfriend …

I needed a replacement mascara for my beloved Maybelline Full N Soft as I couldn't find the brown/black anymore. I had tried everything and had settled on Mark Make it Big mascara in Brown, but found it dried really quickly in the tube and went on pretty dry.

I came across this gem reading mascara reviews and picked this up at my local drug store for just over $5 CDN (I got the …

I got this in Solar as I already blush super easily and it creates a wonderful glow to my face. It gives me the cheekbones I've never had and works great as a highlighter on your brow bone or collarbone.

It's not a huge sized product but it lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. I like that it's not too sparkly so you don't look like you fell in a pile of …

All I have to say is I LOVE this product!!!! It's not sticky, it smells and tastes great and looks fantastic! The colour looks really bright but actually goes on quite sheer and gives you just a hint of pink colour and shimmer to your lips.

It doesn't last very long because it's not sticky like MAC Lipglass, but I'd rather not have my hair sticking to my lips all …

I picked up this lip balm after reading it in the newest Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me by Paula Begoun and saw it was one of her picks in the Best Lip Balm with SPF category. I had been trying to find a decent lip balm with SPF that didn't taste like wax, wasn't thick, didn't taste awful and provided decent SPF protection.

This product is targeted to …

Apr/27/2008

I bought this after seeing a review for it in a magazine. I absolutely love the colour and the way it looked on my lips. It's more of a bright colour, but I don't wear a lot of makeup, just tinted moisturizer, mascara and blush, so the colour was perfect.

However, it had a horrible taste and smell. I don't know if it was because I had had it for so long or what, but when …

I have to be honest here, I never thought I would have shelled out $7.99 CAN for some cuticle treatment...but I did. Thanks to other reviews on here about this amazing product my cuticles now look beautiful!!!

I'm a softball player and have dry hands and skin and no moisturizer could ever help the state of my hands and cuticles. Since I was a child my cuticles were dry, then …
