Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2012

Usually eyeliner is a complete mess for me because I'm monolid and I have combo/oily skin. This eyeliner doesn't smudge or transfer on me, and it actually does help lengthen my eyelashes! It's a bit expensive for a drugstore product but Physician's Formula is more expensive to begin with anyway. My only beef with this eyeliner is that it's not very dark and it does …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Something Special

Jan/22/2012

I bought this because I wanted a non-sparkly version of NARS's "O" and this was the closest match that I could discern from MAC's cream blushes. Okay it's not a match but it still stands on its own. The colour applies with a hint of brown on my skin which I did not expect but I like it all the same because it gives a subtle and natural-looking flush on my face. It's …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength Diamond Shine Top and Base Coat

1.0

Jan/15/2012

This stuff claims to be both a base coat and a top coat but what it really is is a complete fraud. It does not work as a base coat. My nails were left in the same deplorable condition as without a base coat. I'd have split and peeling nails up the wazoo. As a top coat, it bubbles like crazy. Granted, it does prolong the life of your manicure like any top coat should, but with the amount of …Read more

Treatments - Essie - grow stronger

This stuff has saved my nails! Previously I had used the Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Base & Top Coat. What that left me with was weak, peeling nails. It made me scared to wear nail polish in fear of exacerbating these conditions. I could see the tips of my nails split under the nail polish, and it was so depressing that I went months without applying nail polish.

This just …

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Powder Pink

4.0

Jan/15/2012

This is more of a 3.5 for me. I find this product kind of sticky feeling which makes it a little hard to blend, but this stuff is quite pigmented while not too harsh-looking, which I like. I've only used this as a blush so I cannot attest to its use as a lip colour. The screw-top is a little cumbersome to deal with after finger-stained applications, but overall I like this product and I …Read more

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Rouge Cream Blush - Boho Chic

2.0

Jan/15/2012

For some reason this item was $11 CDN regular price, which was much more than I was expecting, but whatever. Like some other people here, I purchased this based on the reviews of YouTubers. Pros: easy to apply, easy to use packaging. Cons: lack of pigmentation. I have quite fair skin and even after two applications the colour was barely there. Based just on pigmentation this product has …Read more

Fragrances - Aquolina - Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette

At first I really liked this: vanilla and caramel, yummy! But after wearing it for a few months, I've already grown tired of it. Now it smells reminiscent of burnt sugar (which I guess is what you get if you overcook caramel). I still kinda like it and still wear it, but I think I'll try to find a fresher, purer vanilla/sugary scent.

Hair Removal - Nair - moisturizing cream hair remover corse dark hair

Aug/31/2011

Let me say first, that I hate the smell. And when you add in combination of what I use this stuff for, really not a pleasant picture. But! I'm willing to overlook the smell because this stuff works well. This is the only product I've used that's efficiently removed coarse hair. It's not perfect; it does leave a bit of stubbling and sometimes you really gotta scrape to get the …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Bronze

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2011

This was more expensive than I was expecting, at almost $15. It smells good actually, for a self-tanner, kinda fruity. But I found it incredibly streaky. Also orange-y (and I'm not talking about the smell). I tried the regular self-tanning routine (exfoliate, body butter), then I tried applying body butter twice, but the results were the same. I'd get unever colour, with random blotches …Read more

Cleansers - MAC Cosmetics - Cleanse Off Oil

5.0

Aug/31/2011

This is my HG makeup remover (for now at least). I use this stuff for the eyes as well, because this stuff takes off waterproof mascara as well. Okay, it does sting if it gets into my eyes, but I don't blame the product because it's not meant to be used as an eye makeup remover. It removes Revlon Colorstay (the heaviest duty foundation I use) the best out of all the makeup removers …Read more
