Palettes - Too Faced - Sugar Peach Wet & Dry Face & Eye Palette

This was my first Too Faced product other than their Milk Chocolate bronzer. I was jonesing for a peach highlight to add to my collection and was intrigued by these shades. Depending on skin tone, they can serve different functions eg, Peach pop is a blush to some, but on my NC40 skin, the pink base isn't as strong. It is gorgeous as a blush topper. It's like a more intense Nars Orgasm …Read more

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Foundation pros - excellent colour match, looks good when first applied. Decent coverage

Cons- no lasting power! For a foundation that claims it is long wearing, the wear is abysmal. It breaks up all over my face and gets patchy by the 2nd hour of wear. Setting spray or primers don't help much. So disappointed. Despite the colour match being good, later in the day I look orange …

This is one of those perfumes where you only need one spritz or you will be suffocating yourself and everyone else around you. It dries down to pure woodsy notes on me which I don't mind but I get an element of something powdery which actually turns me off of the scent. Not one of my favourites, though lasting power and sillage is immensely good.

I am in love with this palette. Of all the warm/sunset like palettes, this appeals to me the most. First off, I love the quality of UD shadows - perfect, buttery soft, highly pigmented. The colours have a deep undertone to them that make them exquisite on darker skin, that some of the other warm palettes are lacking and make some colours look ashy. Yes, some of the shades are similar but my …Read more

I got a deluxe sample size of this and I quite like it. It makes my lashes look huge and separated. I have fairly long lashes already so that may help. I can see it potentially being clumpy for others but I don't really have this problem. Not every mascara gives me the fanned out look, but somehow this one does in a very impressive way. I'd be hesitant to repurchase because of the stiff …Read more

The colour of this is right up my alley - mix of pink, nude & mauve on NC40. It's the perfect everyday lip colour. I bought it hoping the formula wasn't a dud because I really love the colour. It is not one of those budge proof, flat matte liquid lippies - its true to its name in being a creamy matte. I found it very comfortable to wear. The lasting power is good and I get little …Read more

This thing is pure sorcery and magic. I'm not one to splurge on expensive moisturizers as I thought they're pretty much equal. I was using whatever was on sale at the drugstore before but during my accutane course, my doctor recommended this. I wasn't going to buy it because I thought I could manage with my regular lotions. I started getting chapped SHOULDERS - like dry, cracked …Read more

with all of the new blinding highlighters on the market, i find myself reaching for subtler ones. i have a few msfs and i am rediscovered my love for them. refined gives such a soft glow. it's a light peachy gold that is very smooth on. definitely one of the more "refined" textured msfs. it doesn't scream - "i'm wearing highlighter", but rather "i'm …Read more

I currently just finished my first month of my course and will update as time goes.
Me - moderate, persistent acne, very oily skin. I had really bad breakouts earlier this year that left my cheeks purple and was taking forever to heal. This is what put me over the edge. I tried doxy which worked but after I stopped, everything came back and I didn't want to be on antibiotics …

this was a blind buy at shopper's drug mart for me. on first spray i didn't love it but after another use, i'm addicted to this scent. it smells like pear and caramel to me which is especially sublime in winter. it is a very yummy scent and you can definitely detect it for hours. i am a fan of very sweet gourmand fragrances so i'm happy to discover this one. i see comparisons …Read more
