Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I usually like MAC foundations. A Studio Fix compact has been in my purse since the 'eighties (not the same one, of course!). I was curious about the "waterproof" claim and purchased this when we were going through some super-hot, humid weather about a month ago. It comes in a sturdy black tube, although note that there is only 25 ml, or .84 fluid oz., in a tube, somewhat less than …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Primer

5.0

12 months ago

This is the only primer, out of at least a dozen that I've tried, that I've actually re-purchased. I've tried a lot of HE products but this does the job better than any of them. It's dirt cheap, comes in a tube (product stays fresh) and keeps my makeup looking fresh for 10-12 hours. I do blot at mid-day but that's fairly normal with my oily skin. I've never had a …Read more

Jul/31/2018

I've been using this product for about a week now and am very impressed by how well it keeps my skin matte without drying it out. A pea-sized amount covers most of my face after I've applied my daily SPF. I concentrate it in my oiliest areas, around the nose, front of the cheeks, centre of the forehead and chin. Then I apply my mineral makeup (either Bare Minerals matte or Meow …Read more

Blush - Meow Cosmetics - the kiss

Nov/10/2017

This blush is advertised as matte. It's not. It's a pale, white mauvey-pink with a hint of glow, very pretty, but not matte. Since I wanted a matte neutral pink blush, I was disappointed. However, there are a few situations where this blush would shine (no pun intended!). If you are looking for a first blush for your twelve or thirteen year old PPP daughter, you've definitely found …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Deciem - The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

Oct/19/2017

I have very puffy under eyes in the morning and by the end of the day. This product is aces at eliminating that under eye puffiness and smoothing out the under eye area. I definitely look more rested and younger after using this, which I do twice a day. The price is unbelievably reasonable, as are all the Ordinary products, and the amount needed is just a drop for each eye, so I imagine this will …Read more

Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

Aug/16/2017

I can't tell you about wear on this foundation as the colour oxidized to such a bright orange on me that I had to remove it less than an hour after it was applied. I can't imagine what made Wayne Goss think this was the best foundation in the world! It does have lots of good points: a lightweight texture, it's easy to apply, smooth, even coverage; it looks gorgeous when first …Read more

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2017

This is a quick and easy brush cleaner from Shopper's Drug Mart's house brand Quo Cosmetics. It's easy to use and does a fast and thorough job of cleaning all types of brushes. I love how quickly it works, much faster than my old shampoo, wash and rinse method, and how soft if leaves my brushes. I took off one lippy because there are no instructions on the cake and none on the …Read more
