Foundations - COVERGIRL - Trublend Matte Made Foundation

Jun/06/2018

Well, here in Canada I got a bad bottle with the white flecks/particles in the foundation. Purchased L30 from Walmart for my NC20 skin t looked great going and felt smooth. Upon closer inspected (I’ve got aging eyes) I noticed white chunky bits on my skin. It looked like I had tiny white paint splatter. I waited until the foundation dried before trying to wipe off the speckles with my fingers …Read more

Powder - Physicians Formula - Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder

Mar/14/2013

So I've been on the hunt for a powder that doesn't settle in my pores and makes my liquid foundation look too matte. This is it. After testing 6 powders over a 2 month period this has trumped those both department store and lower priced drugstore. Pros are that it is readily available, provides a smooth, healthy and natural finish, does not settle in pores and does not oxidize. Also …Read more

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

Feb/09/2013

I have never been able to try out a CG foundation until now; none of their previous formulas provided me with a good color match. I'm generally NC20-25 in Winter and 25-30 summer, and purchased both Classic Ivory and Buff Beige (shade numbers are different in Canada than US). Classic Ivory is a great match for my winter skin; is neutral with a slight cool yellow undertone. Buff Beige will …Read more

Lip Treatments - Dior - Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/26/2013

My HG lip treatment used to be La Roche Posay Ceralip. It hydrated well and prepped my lips sufficiently for other lip products but over the past 8 years it seems as though my lips just got used to it. This past winter my lips were a flakey, dry mess and nothing could soothe them. I purchased this on a whim and am so glad. This saved my dry, shrivly lips and turned them into plump, full …Read more

Jan/09/2013

I am IN LOVE with this formula! They glide on better than the Loreal Caresse but like others have said, not as thick as the Revlon Lipbutters. I purchased this in 6 shades:
20 - Mocah Muse - (nude peach)
25 - Lust of Blush (nude pink)
30 - Pin Up Peach (peach/pale coral)
55 - One Size Fits Pearl (pearly pink)
60 - Petal Rebal (cool light pink)
80 - Made it Mauve …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Skinfinish-Stereo Rose

Dec/30/2012

I've had a chance to purchase twice during its re-release and I have to say, I'm not a fan. The original is far superior in terms of colour and finish. While I know MSFs can vary depending on veining, I have found the new releases to be much more frosted and on the peachy side compared to the original. The original was much softer, with a golden pink shade and had a slight sheen---which …Read more

Dec/29/2012

I had been eagerly waiting for this foundation to hit Canadian soil and it is finally here!! I did not have much luck in terms of shade selection with UD's Naked Skin as they were far too yellow and jaundice looking on my light neutral/yellow undertone skin. I'm generally NC20 in winter and 25/30 in summer. For my winter skin, I wear this in shade "Shell" which was the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Buxom - Full On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss- Dolly

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2012

Texture is good, colour is a nice mauvey shade and the minty tingling feeling is nice but not at all painful. This definitely leaves a slight plumping effect, not big balloon lips but a subtle fullness around the lips edges. My main complaint is within the packaging. There appears to be no stopper within the neck of the bottle so when I pull out the wand it is full of gloss from the tip (which …Read more

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Red Carpet Manicure System

Oct/15/2012

So I am relatively new to the whole gel manicure/shellac manicure at-home systems. I have been doing these at home for about 6 months and feel that I can finally give a proper review of this particular gel polish (polish only---not the LED light).

I purchased the RCM Prep (primer), Structure (base), Brilliance (top coat), Revitalize (cuticle oil), Purify (alcohol cleanser), and Erase …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Vice Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/11/2012

I am a neutral lover at heart. I typically shy away from anything with bright colours, lots of shimmer, glitter or something I can't wear to the office; however, once I saw this palette in person and swatched a few shades there was no turning back.

This has a variety of finishes and colours that are out of the box for me, but the quality of each and every one is so incredible …
