Blush - FLOWER Beauty - Win Some, Rouge Some Creme Blush

May/11/2015

I bought this in primrose and proper. It's a great peachy natural colour for me, and blended well. A little goes a long way. However, I woke the next day with red itchy hot cheeks. I like this blush, but my skin does not. I found the price (nearly $9 Cdn) was a little high.

Treatments (Face) - Burt's Bees - Doctor Burt's Res-Q Ointment

I love this product. I use it for hang nails, chapped hands and split cuticles (Canadian winter -- what can I say?!). Recently I even used it when I had a head cold and had a red & raw nose from wiping and blowing my nose so often. My nose didn't get as red as usual and I didn't get the dry skin under my nose that usually follows a cold. A great item to carry with you. I like the …Read more

Toners - The Body Shop - Tea Tree freshener

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2009

I have used this for about a week and half and so far I like it. I was in the midst of a fairly substantial breakout (more than usual) and unsure of making a change, but I decided to take the plunge and bought the toner, cleanser and mask from TBS tea tree line. I see some definite improvement in my skin condition and have relatively few new zits since using these products. I'm going to plod …Read more

Lipstick - Dior - Ultra-Shine Sheer Lipcolor 680- Shiniest Mauve

5.0

Apr/02/2009

I got a Sephora beauty insider sample of Dior Addict High Shine 680 Catwalk Mauve. I'm not possitive, but I think it must be this same colour. I love it. It looks like a deeper colour in the tube, but on the lips it's sheer, but not too sheer -- a lovely berry-mauve shade with glitter. I agree with an earlier reviewer that you can feel the everso slight grit of the glitter if you rub …Read more

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

5.0

Apr/02/2009

I first tried this as a Sephora beauty insider sample. I never used a primer before and wow, what a difference in shadow staying power, colour vibrancy, smooth application, etc. When I finished the sample I didn't hesitate to buy the full size tube at approx. $24 CAD. I use a tiny 2-3 mm squirt for each lid, so I think the tube will last a very long time.

Lotions/ Creams - Cake Beauty - Desserted Island Supreme Body Mousse

Apr/02/2009

I tried this on my hands while browsing in Sephora and I loved the scent so much I had to go back and buy a bottle. I find it's fairly moisturizing, but probably not enough so for the height of winter. Nothing beats the body shop body butters for getting my knees and elbows softly through the winter. I agree with other reviewers that the bottle is a little too hard to squeeze. Another con is …Read more

Brows - Sephora Collection - Eye Brow Palette

Mar/23/2009

A good product for a great price. I had a N.Y.C. cheap, cheap brow palette (Browser) for a while, until the wax melted in my make-up bag (I left my bag in the car on a hot day); I have never found the N.Y.C. one again to buy a replacement. I bought this as a relatively inexpensive replacement -- more than double the price of N.Y.C., but worth it for a finer quality.

Mascara - Avon - Astonishing Lengths Mascara

5.0

Feb/23/2009

This mascara was great and I would definitely repurchase. It doesn't have the trendy rubber fine brush that many current mascaras have, so I was a little skeptical that it wouldn't give enough definition, but I was wrong to worry. I have lots of definition and length, no clumping so far and always seems to be a smooth application. I saw it for $2.99 in a recent Avon booklet so I will …Read more

Polishes - Avon - Nailwear Nail Enamel- Warm Black

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2008

I recently bought 'warm black' and 'midnight plum'. It was my first Avon nailpolish purchase. I love them both. The only downside was that I found them lacking in shine after about a day or two (more noticable with the 'warm black') -- however, I didn't use a top coat! If I had, I'm sure I would have had lasting shine.

Gels/ Soaps - Philosophy - Cinnamon Buns Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

5.0

Dec/03/2008

I bought this with a gift card, so otherwise I probably wouldn't have splurged. I love it enough now though that I will be splurging for the next bottle. The smell is authentic, and despite what other reviewers have said, I do still smell it a little on my skin afterward -- not all day though. The lather is great (I use a puff); moisturizing and creamy. I doubt I will use it on my hair …Read more
