Eye Primer - Smashbox - 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer

Overall, this was a good primer. A lot better than the concealer\powder trick, which does not work for my hella oily eyelids! But there's no way I would spend 23 dollars on such a small size and an adequate product. I found this to start creasing after 7 hour mark and that's on my shortest day! This may work great for normal lids, but for oily lids, save your money!

My holy grail moisturizer!! My skin is very oily and last year, I wanted to start using oils for my moisturizer because it was supposed to help you skin to produce less oil. So I started using coconut oil and loved it.....then it broke me out with bad cystic acne across my cheeks. Later I found out that coconut oil isn't great for oily, acne-prone skin (highly comedogenic).

I was …

HONESTLY, I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK SO MUCH, I JUST WANT TO CRY!

*sigh* Ok. So, I had been looking for "The Perfect Red" for me. Matte. A warm red, but not too warm that it's burgundy and bright enough to be a pop, but not to bright where it's too cool toned against my light olive skin. Sadly it had to be this one.

I was Black Friday shopping at Sephora and it …

Surprisingly, this is my first foundation brush! Not because I was too lazy to buy one, but because makeup brushes are freakin' expensive and when they are cheap, you gotta pay for shipping...TO CANADA EVEN!

I finally got one off of iHerb when they were having a sale on Real Techniques for about 12 dollars, I think. I pulled it out of the packaging and just rubbed it on my face …

I got this in an Origins Black Friday set which I specifically bought for this mask.

I wrote a review for the Freemans Charcoal and Black Sugar clay mask which is similar to this and I had mentioned that someone said it was a dupe for this Origins mask, so I'm going to do a little bit of a comparison. Ok, here we go.

The Freemans mask is about 5 dollars and the Origins …

Masks - ORIGINS - Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

Jan/25/2016

I got this in an Origins Black Friday set that they have at Sephora, and to be honest, I wasn't planning on using this because I have very oily skin; I was much more interested by the charcoal mask and rose clay mask. Surprisingly, my skin got very dry this winter and my argan oil wasn't as moisturizing as I needed to be, so I pulled this out.

It smells amazing, like peaches …

Holy grail for my oily and acne-prone skin!! I was going to order the Aztec Healing Clay, but let's be real; that stuff may be dirt cheap, but it is NEVER in stock!
Then I saw this in the suggestions! They looked similar and the reviews on here were great so I bought two 'cuz if felt like they were a little small.

I am so in love with this stuff! Don't follow the …

I've noticed a lot of bad reviews on this lash glue and I get it, but this works for me!
I had bought my first good quality false lashes to wear to a Christmas party and after purchasing, I realized it didn't come with glue, so I had to quickly buy a cheap glue and I grabbed this one. I got home and tried it and it worked great. That's basically it. It held my lashes in place …

UGGGGHHHH!! I WANTED TO LOVE THIS!!

Sigh. Ok. So I had wanted to buy this for the longest time because I saw how good the colour selection was, what with the beige-yellow undertones, but I never bought it because it was 15 bucks. Fast-forward to camp this summer: the nosy friend I am, I was rummaging through my best friends makeup bag and discovered that she had THIS! I used it twice …

Scrubs - St. Ives - Oatmeal Scrub + Mask

Nov/30/2015

I picked this up on a whim because I wanted a moisturizing scrub for the winter and this just happened to double as a mask, and I have a weakness for 2 in 1 skin care.

First impression, I was a little underwhelmed with how gentle it was! I knew it wasn't gonna be like the apricot scrub (Lord, have mercy), but I was expecting a little more exfoliation.
I used it a little …
