Mascara - Maybelline New York - Total Temptation Mascara

Yesterday

I most consistently use L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, but occasionally try different brands/formulas, and this was a recent try. It is perfectly fine and does what one would want mascara to do: darkens lashes, adds volume and slight curl. It is also easy to remove with micellar water. What I dislike is the brush, which I find too fat to hold and makes for a less precise application. It also …Read more

Eye Shadow - Dior - 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow - Dream Matte

If I could give this product 3.5 lippies I would, but certainly don't think it's worth a 4 lippy rating given $62.00 USD price, and disappointing performance. The colours in this palette are very pretty; safe and neutral tones that compliment my fair skin. What I don't like is the chalky quality of the shadows and poor pigmentation. When I spend the money and invest in a Dior …Read more

I have this in shade 120 for green eyes. I have blue-green eyes, but think this trio would work well with most lighter coloured eyes. The trio consists of cool tones of light silver (the base), charcoal (crease), and a very gorgeous mauvey-purple (brow bone). At first glance, I didn't think these colours would look good on me, but all three shades together look beautiful and surprisingly …Read more

I received this initially as a sample and went on to purchase a 1 oz. bottle. While I liked it and found it easy to wear during the warm summer months, I didn't receive any compliments and it did not have good lasting power so I would not repurchase especially given the high price for such a small size.

I had been wanting to try these very pricey cotton pads for quite some time, so when I saw them on the clearance shelf at T.J. Maxx for $3.00, I grabbed them. What an overpriced and overhyped product! I've tried using these to remove eye makeup, apply toner and also for correcting makeup mistakes all to no avail. The cotton squares are simply too thin and flimsy to do anything. I am so …Read more

Conditioner - Virtue - Recovery Conditioner

I've been alternating this with another conditioner for the last 6 months or so, and my hair looks healthier and is easier to heat style. I find it to be very conditioning which is what my dry, fine, colour-treated hair needs. I don't like the heavily perfumed scent, and also don't care for the $40 USD price, so I'm not sure if I'd purchase again once my bottle is …Read more

I have this in 'Cocoa Mauve' and I think it is a lovely collection of colours. I really enjoy the formulation of these shadows which are very silky and easily blendable - last all day, too. I use three out of the four colours, including a pretty champagne shadow and soft browns. These are great neutral colours that don't look muddy or too earthy. I only wish there was one matte …Read more

Eye Shadow - Too Faced - Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

I purchased this at TJ Maxx for $29.99 and am not overly impressed with the quality given the price. Like most eye-shadow palettes, I only end up using 3-4 shades which is a bit wasteful. In this palette, I've been using the very neutral coloured 'almond truffle', 'cashew chew' and 'mocha' shades. I find the pigmentation is weak, and some of the shades look a …Read more
