I have one particular blush from J.I. that is one of my favourite blushes of all time from any brand! It is in the shade "Tawny". 9 times out of 10 this is the blush I reach for. I have a medium skin tone with (in between) neutral/pink undertones. It adds the most beautiful hue to my cheeks, lasts all day and blends beautifully. J.I. has the bonus of having "clean" and …Read more

I have used at least 4 tubes of this mascara and have gifted it to friends as well. They have changed the packaging and brush from the original which has made the application a bit lighter and more precise. The new narrower slightly curved brush allows you to easily get to the roots of the lashes and corners of the eyes. It holds less product than the original brush so more sweeps are …Read more

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Precision & Care Mascara (all natural)

Jan/05/2018

This mascara easily competes and in fact often out performs any of the BEST mascaras out there, and trust me I've tried them all!!! I have medium long, blonde tipped, but not too thick lashes. This mascara adds some volume and beautiful length. It's a good black shade and stays put all day through a long shift at work! The brush separates nicely and holds just the right amount of …Read more

Went to check out this foundation because of Angie's (Hot & Flashy) love for it! I have mature dry/combo skin. Light to medium, with Neutral undertones. I have some freckles and the occasional blemish (thank you hormones).
I did end up buying it... and so far it's my second favourite foundation (my current love being the Lancome Teint Idole Longwear Foundation Stick - …

This brown gel beats out 99% of the competition when it comes to price, formula, ability to hold brows in place, convenience of brush size, and colour choices, I've tried them all! This is my go to brow gel and I pretty much use it almost every day. Occasionally I will use the Essence brow gel (also an excellent product). I'm on, I think, my 3rd tube so far - and that says a lot! …Read more

Nov/05/2016

Years ago I loved the convenience and application speed of stick foundations but for a while they went out of fashion. Let me just say that with this newer launch by Lancome, stick foundations may be on the way to making a strong come-back! I picked this up because the MUFE HD foundation just wasn't really doing much for me anymore (yes our skin changes!), and I was looking for a new …Read more

Was going to buy a Bobbi Brown or Mac Gel eyeliner, but saw this at Shoppers Drug Mart (Canada) for $3.99 and thought.... hey - made in Italy - why not give it a go first! WELLLLLLL ..... I am seriously impressed! Beautiful creamy, soft, easy to apply texture and dries quick enough and then stays put ALL day long even under not ideal conditions! Easy to remove with a remover (I use the thick …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Finger Paints If It Ain't Baroque Don't Fix It!

Feb/23/2011

Have been using Finger Paints nail polish in the colour "Blank Canvas Creme" which I bought as Sally Beauty Supply. Goes on nicely... dries in reasonable amount of time...has a lovely shiny finish, but best of all - this is the BEST flattering NEUTRAL colour I've found... I go for funkier fun colours on my toes... but because of work etc. tend to keep finger nail colours neutral …Read more
