For $2.99 (Canadian) this is a true drugstore gem find for me and I have repurchased. The powder is finely milled, silky, and doesn't look chalky or feel heavy. I use the shade translucent and it works excellent for my complexion, for reference I wear MAC NC15 or Matchmaster shade 1. This powder works beautifully for setting my make-up and sets to a semi-satin/semi-matte finish. Holds up …Read more

Finished my first bottle and now on my second as I seriously love this primer. Very smooth and silky gel like consistency that blends easily into my skin and is fragrance free. Definitely smooths out the texture of my complexion and provides a wonderful base that extends the wear of my face make-up. In addition contains ingredients that are beneficial to my skin such as antioxidants and peptides …Read more

The skin under my eyes is dry with dark circles and I'm always looking for the next best thing in concealers. I was very enticed try this concealer as the promises of it being hydrating and have crease control properties seemed like a dream come true. I purchased the shade Light in the three shades available and sadly this was a little to dark for me, for reference I wear MAC NC15 or …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible The Super Slim 12H Liquid Eyeliner

Love the fine tip which allows for precision and ease along with the super saturated dark black colour that sets to a matte finish. Sadly this doesn't live up to it's claims of 12 hours on my lids as it's prone to smudging and smearing around the 5 hour mark. Personally not a product I'll repurchase.

I'm sorry to bring down the rating of this product, but it just didn't work for me. I found this took forever to dry, like 3 to 4 hours. Plus once it's dry I noticed chips within 2 to 3 days. I'm glad others can enjoy this, but it's not for me.

I bought this recently and have become obsessed with this paint pot. It reminds me of MAC's Bronze, Arena, and Woodwinked if they got together and formed a cream eyeshadow. It's a gorgeous shade of bronze with golden shimmer. The pigmentation is opaque and the formula is so creamy and silky. Applies beautifully and works awesome as an eyeshadow, a base, and an eyeliner. It stays all day …Read more

Jun/19/2013

I purchased 001 Fair and it's a good match for my complexion and has a slight peachy-pink undertone, for reference I wear MAC NC15 or Matchmaster shade 1 and Revlon Photoready in Vanilla. I do like that this product contains SPF and the formula is creamy and blendable, but the pigmentation and wear do not meet my needs. The coverage is around sheer to light and not buildable without looking …Read more

I received a sample size from Sephora's Benefit Birthday Gift and I instantly fell in love with it and will be repurchasing the full size asap. Like other reviewers have mentioned this is a beautiful shade of shimmery champagne that departs a gorgeous luminescent glow. Great pigmentation, feels creamy, applies easily and blends beautifully without disrupting my previous applied concealer and …Read more

Love the fine tip that allows precision for application, but like other reviewers have mentioned this dries out way to fast. I wore it daily for a week and a half and it's completely dry!! Thank goodness I can at least Back 2 MAC it. Definitely won't be wasting my money on repurchasing this liner again.
