I have this in Ultra Black, received it as a gift, though I would repurchase it when I run out. I have been using it for five months, and it is still going strong (note: I have not been using it daily - maybe four days during the week, max).

This is a fantastic liquid eyeliner. Very pigmented, with a solid pen tip that has no surprise 'give' to it. It behaves more like a …

Edit: Purchased 'Make Your Move' - this colour is one that behaves great! Lasts and lasts and lasts. WUaB seems to be a dud, though (in terms of longevity, anyway). /end of edit

I am going to take one lippie off due to inconsistency between the two shades I have, which are Wish Upon a Berry and Heartbreaker. These can be found at any drugstore in Canada, and Walmart (though …

This was on sale recently - 3.99/tube CAD - so I thought I'd pick one up since I'd heard good things.

It's a decent product with a non-drying formula. Very much like a tinted lip balm, but more pigmented. It does not last very long at all, which is a big disappointment. The saving grace is that it fades evenly. No weird chunks.

I looked for one without …

This review is for the Marcelle BB Cream Matte Skin Enhancer in Light to Medium. In short: blends easily; quick to apply; needs a primer to stay matte for longer; get a few hours of complete matte wear; no separation on face.

I purchased this product because I wanted an easy to apply, lightweight foundation that looked like my skin but better. My core issue is that I dislike feeling …

Bottom line: I would probably attempt to find another product before I repurchased this, but this (mostly) does the job of keeping my eyebrows in place,

I used to use a bit of vaseline to set my eyebrows, but I wanted something more convenient to use. I'd heard decent things about this, and found it on sale, so I decided to pick it up.

Well, it is more convenient …

Overview: decent foundation, one of the best drugstore foundations. Packaging sucks, coverage malleable, does settle in fine lines.

I have been wearing this for years and years. I do switch out every once in a while, but I always come crawling back (I miss the SPF one, though).

This product is consistent. Every time I wear it, it does the same thing. It offers the same …

I live in Canada, and I found this at Rexall - it was the last one left! I really love the Eyelid colour on the left side. Day to day, this is typically what I reach for. EDIT: Some Walmarts still have big WnW displays - I visited 3 different ones within a week and they all had varying levels of displays. The Great Canadian Superstore has a display as well.

The colours in this palette …

This is the best foundation I've ever used: although I wouldn't say it's my HG... It lasts forever, offers great coverage, and has an spf to boot. It doesn't mattify, and my face looks just a shiny at the end of a day as the other stuff, but it's great @ the price it's at, and I don't have to replace it as often.

This product is very messy - I get it under my nails, sure, but also all over my fingertips! Definitely not a substitute for a manicure. It is, however, a miracle worker when it comes to fortifying nails. I have the unfortunate problem of translucent, weak nails. I put this on (at bedtime), and the next day my nails are strong and ready to last another day!

The only reason I …

This product does the job for a inexpensive price. And by 'does the job', I mean it darkens the lashes. Nothing else. It 'enhances' your natural beauty, if you will. I find that it doesn't clump very often, it's the blackest mascara I've used, and it stays put after it's dried.

It does stay wet for a while, which can result in residue, and it …
