Lipstick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - ROUGE ARTIST NATURAL Moisturizing Soft Shine Lipstick - Iridescent Copper Pink

This is such a pretty lipstick.
It's a medium pink with the slightest bit of shimmer, nothing noticable, just enough to make your lips look plump and moist.
I have fair skin and unpigmented lips, and this looks incredibly natural on me.
The texture is like a thin lip balm; very comfortable to wear. It doesn't dry until four or five hours in wearing it, although, by then I …

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Lift Concealer

I bought this after the SA at Sephora suggested it to me, claiming it to emphasize texture less than other concealers when used on the undereyes. She suggested shade #2 but it was too dark so I exchanged it for shade #3.
I have moderate dark eye circles; the main concern is just the line that begins below the inner corner of the eye. I don't mind having dark eye circles, if anything, I …

Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lip Liner

Nov/01/2014

Probably the cheapest lipliners you can get at $1.49 Canadian.
I have these in a couple of colours and I find they all run quite dull; they can sometimes make me look dead but that's okay, I wear lipstick over them anyways.
These are wooden lip pencils with a soft, smooth formula that doesn't dry out lips. They last all day on me and don't settle into lines. The …

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Matte Lip Color - Rich Red

A beautiful, bold red.
I bought this at Targget for $4 Canadian. It was the last one left, and I can see why.
This is a universally flattering neutral red. The texture of the lipstick is matte after it sets. It transfers, but the colour remains just as bold.
I find that after about three hours, it'll begin to settle into fine line sif you don't wear lipliner. With such a …

Primer/ Corrector - COVERGIRL - TruMagic Skin Perfector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/01/2014

I bought this at the dollar store for $3 Canadian.
I use this as a primer to fill in my pores before applying foundation, and it makes my skin very soft and smooth. I take the sponge and gently tap the product before dabbing it on my skin.
I find that it doesn't help control oil, but it does blur imperfections and smooth the skin. The formula also comes in a bronzer and …

Lipstick - Buxom - Full On Lip Stick (formerly named Big and Healthy Lip Stick) - Las Vegas

A nice everyday lipstick.
The colour is a neutral baby pink that I find particularly flatters warm skintones. It's very sweet. It can look a little Barbie pink on me sometimes.
The texture of this lipstick is very smooth and soft. I can rub my lips together comfortably with this on for the first hour; after it sets it doesn't budge. It never transfers when I eat or drink, and …

I heard a lot of good things about this foundation controlling oil so I thought I would give it a try. I've been using it for about four months now, so I think I'm ready to share my experience.
Colour wise, I find the colour selection to lean a little orange, but it's not too noticable. I wear the shade shell, although I think porcelain would work as well.
I apply this by …

Fragrances - Gucci - Guilty Eau de Toilette

Smells like a mature version of Johnson's lavender baby powder. It's floral and fresh. Doesn't last longer than an hour on me and doesn't have much sillage either; I have to hold my wrist up to my nose to smell it. There isn't much to say about it. It's pleasant, but for me, not worth it.

If you have oily eyelids, this is going to be your worst nightmare. (Okay, it can still be your worst nightmare even if your eyelids transform into a recreation of the BP oil spill in two hours)
Out of all the eyeliners I've ever tried, this smudges the most. It's something about Maybelline products... every eye product I've tried except for the Great Lash mascara smudges on …

So cute, but terrible for oily lids :(
I have super oily eyelids and this eyeliner flakes off terribly. I don't even need makeup remover to take it off, all I need to do is go over the line with the eyeliner again and tada, the line disappears.
In terms of pigmentation, it's not that pigmented. I have to go over the line to darken it, but usually that results in the liner just …
