Moisturizers - Marcelle - Golden Glow Moisturizing Cream

May/18/2012

This comes in a metallic silver/gold 50ml plastic jar. Not the greatest packaging (we all hate jars!) but aside from that, this is an interesting and versatile product.
I bought it to try it out, with no real need for it. I have a weak spot for highlighters and highlighting products, and this is marketed as a highlighting cream. It was around $18 CAD.

Okay, so UNEXPECTEDLY enough …

Highlighters - Marcelle - Light Effects in Sea Shell

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/06/2012

I have this in "Equinox" which is a lighter shade than Seashell I believe. First of all, this is super pretty! It glimmers in the compact as it catches the light, but thankfully it is devoid of chunky glitter-type texture that many pressed powder highlighters have. It's very finely milled and goes on almost invisibly - awesome for brightening up the complexion without being over …Read more

Liquid - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil Fluid Makeup SPF 15

1.0

Apr/23/2012

Colour Selection: There is barely any. Those of us with pale/light skin lost out on this one, because even the lightest shade has a noticeable tint of orange.
Texture: This initially goes on pretty nice, like a normal liquid foundation would. Not too difficult to blend. A few hours later, it turns into a simultaneously oily and flakey, cakey mess. Settles into every line and pore and makes …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Colour Pot - Solid Gold

I have this in "White Gold" and I LOVE IT. I use the cream shadow and loose shadow separately and together when I want to make it more dramatic. It also doubles as an awesome highlighter - even for cheekbones! The packaging is a bit bulky, but sturdy, and the colour is super pretty. I like the formula too :)

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Hydraphase UV SPF 30

Mar/19/2012

I love, love, love this moisturizer/sunscreen. First of all…it's a moisturizer and sunscreen in one, which already makes it awesome. Unlike a lot of SS+moisturizer combos, this is not one bit greasy or oily on the face. It's a thin lotion texture which sinks into the skin almost instantly after application. Does not leave any residue at all. I haven't experienced any breakouts or …Read more

Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum

This is a great liquid liner. I didn't see any lash growth or increased fullness, but this is an excellent liquid liner. Goes on very smooth, doesn't budge all day and creates a very straight, thin line. As far as liquid liners go, this one is very easy to use. You don't even need that much of a steady hand to use it - it's pretty foolproof! I will repurchase.

Feb/22/2012

I've used this bb cream daily for two weeks prior to writing this review. This means that: 1. No breakouts!
2. I liked it enough to use it for two weeks. Which is awesome.

The pros:
- Really convenient packaging! Plastic tube with pump & clear lid. Easy to travel with and squeeze out the needed amount of product.
- Nice finish. Satin-matte finish but not dry or …

Lotions/ Creams - Fresh - Rice Dry Oil

5.0

Jan/23/2012

The only reason I would NOT repurchase this product is because of the price. It is ridiculously expensive, especially for the amount of oil that you get.
However, it totally deserves the 5-star rating. The smell alone is AMAZING. It's like peaches and warmness and light! It lingers for a good 2 hours.
This oil is moisturizing, but nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to …
