Mascara - essence - Stays No Matter What 24 Hour Volume Mascara

4.0

May/02/2014

I found out about this brand in a magazine ad and they were saying how cheap yet effective their makeup products are, so I figured "why not try it out?" (almost) Everything was under $5 when I reached the shelf containing Essence products, including this mascara, which was $3.99. It claimed to be waterproof and wears all day without smudging, so I purchased this and gave it a …Read more

Cleansers - shu uemura - High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2014

I wasn't sure about using oil cleansers because, like many other people, I wasn't thrilled about smearing oil all over my face as part of my skin routine. However, when I compared this with another oil cleanser (from The Body Shop), this one did a better job at breaking the makeup down. I'm always wearing waterproof mascara and liquid eyeliner, so I need something oil-based to …Read more

Palettes - shu uemura - 6HP Enchanted Black Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2014

This palette was my first shu uemura product, and it was quite a leap of faith because I've only heard good reviews about their skincare products and not so much on their makeup. It was also quite a splurge, because I paid $100 CAD for this dainty thing.

When I first received the palette, I was blown away by the super cute packaging (designed by Japanese animator Takashi …

This brush has the softest bristles I've ever experienced! I remember saving up to get myself this at Sephora because it looked so cute and compact; up until I actually bought one for myself I remember walking past the display one every time just so I can feel how soft it is, haha!

I use this brush to apply powdered foundation or translucent (finishing) powder all over my face …

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

Aug/25/2013

I got the sample sized version of this in the "How to look the best in everything" package at sephora, and I really liked it! The primer has a semi-thick consistency, smells nice, and really does a good job covering the look of my pores. It does a better job at oil-absorbing than anything else I've tried (MUFE and Smashbox), so it's a big plus for anyone with oily skin. I wish …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer in 1 Green

5.0

Aug/25/2013

I use this to cover up my the redness in my T zone, and it's a really good and effective primer. It blends into my skin really well and cancels out the redness without giving me a sickly complexion. Does a good job keeping the foundation from slipping off my oily face, too.

What I find problematic was the packaging: the pump sometimes gets stuck and I would have to turn the …

Eyeliner - Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - Black

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/25/2013

After hearing a couple of youtubers rave about how good this eyeliner was, I decided to buy one myself at Sephora and try it out. For its price ($18 CAD), I wasn't very impressed at all. Says it was smudgeproof on the packaging, but it smudged onto my monolid eyelids after a couple of hours, and the pen seems to run out of product really quickly. The pigmentation is good, but the felt tip …Read more

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation

Aug/25/2013

I've been using drugstore brand setting powders before buying this, but due to my oily skin my face ends up getting all shiny after ~4 hours of wear anyway, so I thought maybe if I bought a high-end powder foundation I might get more lasting power.

After using this for two months to set my liquid foundation, I found that it did help keep my face matte for a little longer (maybe 6 …

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

5.0

Aug/25/2013

I swear by this eyeshadow primer. It solves any problems of creasing or smudging of eye makeup once you have this on and a little goes a looong way. I bought my first tube (the squeeze tube packaging, not the one with the wand) two years ago and I'm still trying to finish it--I wear makeup almost on a daily basis so that's a long time and a lot of product! It does sound pricey for first …Read more

Lip Liners - Sephora Collection - Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner Red

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/25/2013

The shade I bought was in Scarlet, and I thought it was pretty good for a solid, matte red lip liner, but I don't have much experience of these with other brands so I can't really compare it with anything. It stays on for most of the day, but I saw some feathering at the corners of my mouth after a meal or two..then again, I don't know what to expect in terms of staying power! Okay …Read more
