Pricey foundation but worth it in my opinion if it works out for you. The formula is fantastic, it applies and blends easily. Provides a nice medium coverage and also imparts a subtle glow on my skin. My skin looks great at the end of the day. Of course I do have to blot my skin a few times during the day but it held up really well on my combo skin. The foundation shade 041, Soft Ochre is a …Read more

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

Feb/09/2018

The shade range for this Fenty foundation is fantastic. I did have to sample a few shades before I settled on one shade. I found the shades do oxidize on my skin. I followed instructions from others to shake the bottle well before application and even tried applying primers on my skin before applying the Fenty foundation but it still oxidizes. Shade 320 is my perfect match. The formula is very …Read more

Unfortunately this foundation did not work out for me. I was happy with the foundation shade, Golden. Initially it was a great match for my skin. My problems with this foundation developed later on in the day. It oxidized a lot on my combo skin and also looked quite oily, and had to blot my face numerous times. The other downside was that it accentuated any dry patches and pores on my face. …Read more

Another fantastic concealer I really enjoy using! Kudos to Nars for developing a concealer that provides good coverage and does not settle into some of my fine lines under my eyes.

To apply this concealer I place some on the back of my hand to warm up the product and then apply it underneath my eyes with a Beauty Blender sponge, then set it by applying a light dusting of loose …

I really love this concealer! It seems to live up to the hype it has generated. Too bad it's not sold yet in any stores in Canada. I purchased it online on the Tarte website. I decided on getting the shade Medium after looking at online swatches and watching reviews of the Shape Tape concealer from youtubers with similar skintones. The shade Medium works well for me and is yellow based. …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - In The Flesh

I own a few of the Megalast lipsticks. I really like In the Flesh. On my pigmented lips it shows up as a peachy light nudey-brown shade. I have dry lips so matte lipsticks can make them feel even drier. I apply a lipgloss on top of my Megalast Matte lipsticks to keep my lips moisturized.
I like to pair In the Flesh lipstick with MAC's Cremesheen lipgloss in Delight. The lasting …

Concealers - Sephora Collection - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer

Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2016

For me, this concealer seems very similar to Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I decided to give the Sephora version a try when my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Biscuit was finishing. I was also not eager to pay the $36.00 CDN pricetag for the Nars concealer again. I purchased the Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer in the shade Pecan Pie. It's formulation is more on the …Read more

It's been a long time since I have bought a high end lip product. I became fascinated with this lipcrayon( Nude #6) after seeing it on a youtuber's lips. She had applied it to her lips after applying a lipliner and it looked so beautiful on her. The colour seemed like a flattering nudey-pink shade on her pigmented lips. This lip crayon is marketed as a satin full coverage formula …Read more

Feb/28/2016

Syrup is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks, a great pink-mauvey shade. I have received this lipstick many times thanks to MAC's Back to MAC program. I never get tired of this shade. Paired with Whirl lipliner and a gloss on top, it looks fantastic. The staying power is not the greatest as compared to some of MAC's other lipstick formulations. Still, it's a staple in my lipstick …Read more

Feb/24/2016

I don't have experience with other Cushion foundations, so I was eager to try this one when I spotted it at Walmart. A few things I noticed right away about this foundation, not many shades were available and it is very pricey for the amount you get! It retails for $19.97 CDN at Walmart and costs a lot more at the more pricey Canadian drugstores(Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall). I picked …Read more
