Eye Shadow - Almay - Intense i-Color Eye Shadows

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

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Peony & Blush Suede Cologne

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.

Skincare - Face - SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton

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

3.0

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

Eye Shadow - Neutrogena - Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Primer

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

3.0

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

Fragrances - Salvatore Ferragamo - Emozione Eau de Parfum

I found this at TJ Maxx for a very good price and have been using if for over one year. It is a sophisticated, yet light scent that stays close to skin. No overly floral or fruity notes here and I receive many compliments. I have repurchased this twice and hope to find it again in the future as it appears to be no longer available in shops.

A really mediocre shampoo at a ridiculous price. This left my hair full of static and flat at the roots. Every Pureology product I've ever purchased has been a disappointment.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

3.0

I purchased this solely because it is one of the few remaining cosmetics brands offering black-brown mascara. For that reason it is great; a nice black-brown that doesn't look too severe as most black mascaras do. The brush is also nice and the formula has stayed fresh even after several weeks, but I am disappointed in the lack of length and volume. I don't get a "high …Read more
