Concealers - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer

I so wanted this to be my new HG because I love the foundation therefore I'd found the perfect shade. Unfortunately, this creased within a couple of hours of application no matter how I applied. I tried with a brush and sponge, tried different quantities and tried prepping the eyes more than usual. Nothing worked and this concealer just aged me no matter what so I returned it. :( …Read more

Mascara - Isehan - Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl and Super Waterproof Mascara

I bought this mascara after reading the positive reviews on here but  I must say that for me, this is just an okay product. I like the curved brush and how it fits around my lashes and the formula definitely gives my lashes the illusion of length and lift. I guess I just prefer a thicker, more voluminous look. 

For lengthening purposes, this is a good product. I can totally see people …

I had gone off lip glosses for the longest because matte lips were in and also because I didn’t enjoy the feel of gloss nor the look I would achieve with glossy lips.
I realize now that I was actually applying them wrong, especially for the shape of my lips. Once I discovered focusing the applicator on the center of the lip, I was astounded by the difference it made.
That …

I got a mini size as an extra from my last Sephora order. Although the packaging advertises it as a day cream that can be worn alone or with makeup, I find the texture and consistency perfect as a pore blurring primer. I only use it on and around my nose where my pores are most visible and then I layer my Fenty foundation on top of it.
While it does help, I prefer my Benefit …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24H - Blackest Black

While I enjoy using this to draw a dramatic cat-eye flick, I can’t seem to make it work when I want to create a smooth line across my lashline that isn’t half an inch thick.
I’ve tried with several different liner brushes but I always end up with an uneven mess. Part of it is because I’m not a natural artist, but I also think that the formula is just a bit too thick.
However …

Lip Treatments - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Lip Primer

This does exactly as advertised: it smooths out the vertical lines of the lips so that my liquid lipstick has a smoother canvas to lie on. It does not extend wear time but I wasn’t expecting that anyway. I first purchased this because I adore the look of a matte lip, but I was straying away from liquid lipsticks during the cold winter months because of how dry my lips would end up looking and …Read more

This is a seriously underrated lipstick. Possibly because LW is not as well-known outside of Canada, but it really should be just for this product. The colors are gorgeous but the Red Velvet is infinitely special. It has a slightly pinky-orange tone to it and is very unique. Many bright reds tend to look garish on my NC40 skin but this shade seems to make my skin glow and gets me complements all …Read more

I resisted the urge to buy what I thought was an overpriced powder that was at risk of overexposure by Youtubers. But when I saw that Sephora was selling a smaller size of along with the glow version in a set, I finally relented and made the splurge.

I gotta say… this stuff must have fairy dust in it or something because it makes a huge different with undereye concealer. Everything just …

I was looking for an inexpensive primer after I ran out of my Milani and discovered that they weren't selling it on Amazon Canada anymore. I came across this one and was encouraged by the reviews so I decided to take a chance. I got it in the mail just in time for New Year's Eve and I used this for my NYE party and even after several hours of eating, drinking and general partying, my …Read more

This is an okay product that did nothing for my undereye circles but has enough cling that the delicate skin remained hydrated throughout the night. As far as eye creams go to keep those fine, dry lines at bay, this is a good product. But I I don’t really feel like it’s worth the 50 CAD$. You’re paying more for the gorgeous packaging and the name. La Neige is one of Sephora’s top …
