Skincare - Body - Johnson & Johnson - Baby Oil

Like many people, I'd avoided this oil for years because of the high level of fragrance (which is lovely and has such strong memories, even though I try to avoid heavy scents) and the "poor quality" ingredients. I didn't use this on my children when they were babies, preferring more "natural" products for their skin. But I have started using this in winter-time …Read more

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow - 342 Lumiere et Opulence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 days ago

There is already a review section for this eyeshadow quad (I and one other reviewer posted our reviews there about 2 months ago), but I noticed this and the comments this reviewer (jmp24) made about the sponge tipped applicators. I wanted to tell her know (as someone told me) that the Chanel applicators are VERY different from those included with other eyeshadows (from drugstore up to Dior - …Read more

Eye Shadow - Natasha Denona - Mini Glam Eyeshadow Palette

16 days ago

I would happily have given this little 5 pan palette a 5-lippie rating - it deserves it - except for the fact that this is NOT the cool toned palette Natasha Denona's promotional photos led me and many others to believe it was. The first pictures I saw of this were of a really cool toned palette - sort of green-tinged grey shades. Then Temptalia's photos appeared at her site and they …Read more

Blush - Tata Harper - Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint

I have had a sample of this in the shade Very Popular, which is the only colour my local Sephora carries. While I find cream blushes and highlighters to be a bit more fiddly to use than their powder counterparts, I used this yesterday for the first time in months and months and I was delighted by how natural it looks on me. I used it over top of a powder foundation (Lise Watier's) and was …Read more

Lip Treatments - Kiehl's - Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25

My daughter has been using this lip balm and swears by it and so she put a tube, in the shade Simply Rose, in my Christmas stocking. I have very chapped lips, a situation exacerbated by my habit of picking them when they get dry. I've used this 3 times since yesterday and I am loving it. I find it very hydrating and effective and I also find it lasts really well. The colour is a nice …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Rouge Lacquer - Wicked Smart

5.0

I bought this lipstick to bring a purchase up to the $75 mark so I could use the recent Sephora coupon. I'd previously purchased another shade of this lipstick/gloss hybrid and was very pleased. These are great lip products - similar in texture and wear time to YSL's "Oil in Stick" or Hourglass's Girl Lip Stylo products but at a fraction of the price (they even share …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Greystone

I'm not quite sure why I purchased this shadow - probably because of the high rating here and reading that it had been discontinued (much to the disappointment of several previous reviewers) and now reformulated and brought back. This, coupled with MAC's recent 25% off, was enough to have me heading off to my local MAC and adding this to my purchase.

It's not a bad …

Primer/ Corrector - Farsali - Liquid Glass Radiance Serum

Liquid glass is right! This stuff gives the most gorgeous, glassy finish to my skin! I had a sample I'd been using because this is pricey stuff, and I'd been waiting for the $25 off coupon from Sephora before splashing out on the full sized bottle because I was so happy with the results after using the sample for about a week. I am in my 60's and am always on the lookout for …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Burt's Bees - Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the previous reviewers because without your reviews, I'd never have even noticed, let along purchased, this wonderful all purpose cream/ointment. A few years ago, I tried the Burt's Bees baby oil but was really put off by the scent and I was worried this would have the same off-putting honey smell but this has only the mildest of pleasant scents …Read more

I can only echo LeslieCZ's comments about this fantastic little quad. Chanel cosmetics are no longer available anywhere near where I live (the counter at the dept. store here was pulled out because of low sales) and I am not someone who enjoys ordering online but after seeing this beauty, I became obsessed with having it and went to a local Shoppers Drug Mart where the cosmetician helped me …Read more
