I fought myself over buying this blush because it's super expensive (think 30+ dollars...I'm in Canada), but all the reviews said it was good for olive skin tones, so I decided to use my Sephora gift card for it. I'm so happy I did! :) Plus blushes last forever which makes the initial cost easier to bear.

This blush is a beautiful dusty rose-brown and it makes my face …

Great blush! I bought it months ago cos it was cheap and the colour looked nice but I haven't worn it til now. I'm impressed! A very natural, pinky-brown colour that shows up nicely on my NC15 skin. It is very easy to use for a powder blush as well--super smooth application. Glad I picked this one up.

This thing is the devil. I have it in "Always Red" which is the most beautiful color, deep rich true blood red. I like the feel of this on my lips as it is pretty lightweight and nondrying.

However.

This stuff has NO staying power at all. I don't know how the rest of you are doing it but I absolutely can't eat or drink anything with this on or it smears …

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

Mar/09/2015

I bought this because I was suckered into the reviews of crazy long lashes. My lashes are short and fine, so I usually go for mascaras that do it all in terms of thickening and lengthening. However, I couldn't resist the siren call of long, fluttery lashes for "natural" makeup days, so I purchased this for 18.99 CAD (super pricey for me when my HG mascara is $5...). Packaging is …Read more

I wanted to love this foundation. I've been using Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combo skin and although that makes my skin look flawless, it's quite heavy and I didn't want to feel like I was wearing a mask. So I ordered samples from LM in light, pale olive, and cream. Cream was too orange for me, while pale olive and light both seemed to work fine. My sister said I looked like a ghost …Read more

I actually really like this mascara, which is surprising because most Maybelline stuff doesn't work for me (irritates my eyes, etc). This holds a curl well and adds some length/ volume to my lashes after 2-3 coats. The waterproof claim is accurate because I've taken showers in this, slept in it (!) and it remains on. However, I wouldn't repurchase because I feel like waterproof …Read more

This stuff is great. Kinda expensive, but the fine-milled silica does make a difference. I never thought to write a review because this is such a staple. I use it to set sunscreen and foundation so my face isn't oily, or to dust my t-zone when it's not cooperating and is an oil slick. Kinda blurs out imperfections but in a very soft-touch, forgiving way. No, your makeup won't look …Read more

This lipstick is wonderful! I've been wearing it every day this fall. Stays on for hours, plus you can drink/eat (non-oily food) and it will still be on your lips. It's a brownish rose colour, kinda similar to "Pops" by Nyx, but it's darker and the formula is much better. Could be a "my lips but better" colour for some. Give it a try! Super cheap, super awesome …Read more

I have this little beauty in the shade "Pops" and it is a perfect MLBB colour for me! I swipe this on a couple of times and it basically evens out my lips and makes them look great! Doesn't settle into fine lines or emphasize dryness but I do wear vaseline beforehand just in case.

Lasts for 2-3 hours with minimal eating/drinking, so definitely not long lasting, but so …

I bought this because it was no frills, no fuss. All the ingredients seem to be non-irritating, so it should've been perfect, right? Wrong. My face felt "tight" after washing which is a sign of a compromised moisture barrier! I also felt like this cleanser contributed to tiny little red spots on my face. I didn't want to have a full-on breakout so I stopped and returned to …Read more
