I'll start by saying I'm not usually a MAC fan. Anything I've tried from them in the past, I've either ended up straight disliking or finding a dupe for a fraction of the price. This is actually an HG product for me now.

My face isn't super oily. I don't end up looking shiny or anything, but my makeup tends to slide anyway, and there's very few face …

Foundations - COVERGIRL - Covergirl and Olay Simply Ageless 3 in 1 Liquid Foundation

5.0

Sep/08/2017

I never thought I'd find an HG foundation at the drug store, but I think it may have happened. I wrote off drug store foundation over 10 years ago because nothing I used looked the way I wanted to. Either the coverage sucked, the colour sucked, it didn't stay on, it wore weird, it looked weird, or a combination of all of those things. I just started assuming that high end meant better …Read more

I own a ton of eyeshadow and because these colours are all pretty crazy, I don't reach for this a ton, but it's something fun to have around to add a little bit of colour accent or for when you just want to create a look that's super fun.

Most of the shades are pretty good fallout-wise with the exception of the silver. It must be something to do with whatever pigment …

I grabbed a peony and poppy scent because apparently it's being discontinued and it was on sale for half price.

I really enjoy the product. It delivers a ton of moisture and makes your hands feel great, dries down quickly and isn't greasy at all. The scent is strong (which I like, but others won't), and it smells floral, but not like "grandmother's …

I've been interested in trying this because I've heard some great things. After testing it for about a week, I think I've gotten a good feel for how it works on my skin.

The coverage, what it's known for, is insane. I tested it over my black tattoos and you actually can truly achieve complete coverage, which I've never had before, even from other foundations …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

This foundation is decent for being drug store. As always with cheaper foundations, the colour is too dark for me and oxidized a bit, so for a perfect match, I do need to mix it or colour-correct with powder.

Gives medium coverage in a single layer. I don't find it to be very buildable as on me, it cakes, creases and gets blotchy if I try to layer it up for more coverage. My …

I've been wanting to try this forever, but the price always put me off, especially including shipping to Canada. I ended up getting the 4 pen starter pack.

I like what it does for my nails. They do seem to be a little more resilient and don't break quite as often on days when I don't have polish on. But as I have polish on nearly every day, this wouldn't benefit me …

May/31/2017

I have combination skin with a few drier patches around my mouth. Though I dealt with the usual acne in my teens, I now only experience a stray pimple now and again, likely from stress and occasionally being bad about removing my makeup. I do have some redness and enlarged pores on my cheeks and this excessive redness, slightly exacerbated by some minor acne scarring, is largely what I wanted to …Read more

May/24/2017

I'm going to assume this is the Invigorating Night Transformation gel that now comes in a blue pump bottle after the re-branding (this one: http://imgur.com/YReXd9L).

As soon as I smelled this, I knew it was basically a glycolic acid diluted in gel form. Glycolic acid varies in strength depending on how you dilute it and basically helps to lift dry and dead skin cells better than …

I'll start off by saying that my face isn't super oily. I have combo skin with a little bit more oil in my T-zone, but on a normal day, I don't turn into an oil slick or anything. On my forehead between my eyebrows, it also does this weird thing where it somehow looks flaky and oily at the same time, so that's fun. My main mission with primer is to prolong foundation wear and …Read more
