Lip Gloss - ColourPop - Ultra Glossy Lip (All Colors)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2017

I have a few non-negotiable qualities for lipgloss, and these tick every box. They're smooth, non-sticky and hydrating without feeling like they're going to slip all over the place. Plus, they're very affordable and the packaging is sleek and pretty. They have a few different formulations, including some that are sheer and others that are higher in pigment. They all have a lovely …Read more

Lipstick - ColourPop - Lippie Stix - All Colors

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2017

I'm a huge Colourpop fan when it comes to their eyeshadow, Ultra Satin Lips and Ultra Glossy lips. But no matter how hard I try, I just can't fall in love with the Lippie Stix.

I have two main issues with these lipsticks:
1. I often get that line of demarcation on the inside of my lower lip where I can see where the lipstick finishes and my natural lip colour shows …

Lipstick - ColourPop - Ultra Satin Lip Liquid Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2017

After trying several liquid lipstick formulas, I had to admit to myself that I don't love liquid lipsticks. I've got dry lips and I find most of them to be uncomfortable and aging. The Ultra Satin Lips, however, are the best ones I've tried. I don't love all the colours I've purchased, but I've found two that I really love and wear often.

* These liquid …

Eye Shadow - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eye Shadow Palette

5.0

May/29/2017

After being put off by the very mixed reviews of the this product online, I purchased the Pro To Go palette first. I'd never used Tarte eyeshadows before, but I ended up loving the Pro To Go palette so much that I picked the full size Pro Palette up as well and I don't regret it at all.

Formulation: These shadows are really soft and pigmented. They kick up a bit of powder …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

5.0

Feb/26/2017

It's rare that I repurchase a foundation/base item, because I don't go through them that quickly and I'm always curious to try something else by the time I've used a whole bottle up. However, this is one item I have (and will continue to) repurchase.

I really love how easy this is to apply. I don't even both with a brush or sponge, I just warm between my …

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2017

I so wanted to love this product. I'd heard really great things and it seemed like the perfect everyday option for my very dry skin.

Unfortunately, I didn't like this at all. It seemed to soak into my skin, leaving an uneven minimal coverage. The finish was nice and dewy, but it gave even less coverage than my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. However, when I tried to build …

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2017

This was totally one of those 'YouTube made me buy it' purchases. I had tried cushion foundations in the past - back when they were something more common in Korean beauty brands, and liked the concept, especially for travel. So, when I saw L'Oreal had come out with one that was supposed to be great for dry skin, I was all over it.

Straight up, I LOVE this product …

Concealers - BECCA - Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer

Feb/08/2017

I've been on the hunt for my HG concealer for the last few years, and still haven't found "the one." I was hoping this concealer would be it, but sadly it's not.

I had seen reviews saying the coverage wasn't great on this concealer but I was okay with that, initially, because I prefer a lighter concealer for under my eyes and around my nose. I want …

Stick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2017

I've been using this foundation on and off for almost a year and I still don't quite know how to rate it. I'd probably say it's closer to a 3.75 out of 5.

The weird thing about this foundation is that I always dislike it when it's first applied (which sometimes prevents me from picking it out of my stash) because it looks a little heavy. But then, after an hour …

Palettes - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2016

I resisted buying this when it first came out because of the $95CAD price tag. That is a crazy amount of money for the amount of product that you get. However, once I played with it in Sephora I couldn't help myself. This palette is GORGEOUS. The packaging is sturdy and beautiful, and the selection of products is great.

The Hourglass powders are unlike any other powers I've …
