Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Love Joy

Apr/22/2012

Beautiful shade of blush and exactly what I was looking for. I love the fact that it does not show up clownishly pink on my NW35 skintone. Looks very natural, almost like a bronzy pink. I also love the faint gold shimmer and darker pink veins which run throughout it, giving it a bit more dimension. I was surprised at the $28CDN pricetag since I haven't bought a MAC blush in about 7 years …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Fierce & Tangy

Jan/15/2012

I can't say that I have been very impressed lately by any drugstore products, so when I came across these new eyeshadows by Maybelline, I was so happy! I have been looking at similar products at Sephora (especially the Make Up Forever eyeshadows) but I haven't gotten around to buying one because of the steep prices. So when I discovered the new colour tattoo eyeshadows at Shoppers for …Read more

Eye Shadow - Victoria's Secret - Lose Control

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2010

Not much to say, other than I love this eyeshadow! I am an NW35 with dark brown eyes, and this colour looks stunning on me. I never realized it until I read the MUA reviews, but Lose Control does indeed resemble NARS Galapagos! (except, Galapagos has more gold sparkle in my opinion) Lose Control is a beautiful deep smoky bronze, that can be patted on for daytime, or extra layered for evening. I …Read more

mmmm, love at first sniff! I was walking through Victoria's Secret tonight, looking for a new lotion to use up my gift card. I swear I sniffed every single one and none especially stood out to me, escept the Appletini lotion, which was okay. Finally, after almost giving up hope, I came across Pure Seduction and I loved it!!! It is so similar to Love Spell (which I already own) but somehow …Read more

Eyeliner - Avon - Glimmersticks eye liner

5.0

Nov/12/2010

I love this eyeliner! I have it in Twilight Sparkle, which is a lovely shade of glittering navy blue that brightens up my brown eyes. I often get complements when I wear it. It doesn't flake, which is important because I wear contacts and there is no glitter fallout either. It basically stays put until I remove it. Glimmersticks are a great value for the price. Many brands (ie: Lise Watier …Read more

Eye Shadow - Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Eyeshadow "Plum Crazy"

5.0

Nov/03/2010

I was on the lookout for a dark purple eyeshadow after my beloved Revlon perle eyeshadow in "Violet Starlet" fell and shattered. Plum Crazy is a great dupe for it. I love that used dry, the eyeshadow is pretty pigmented and can be built up for more drama. But used wet, it turns into an intense blackened purple. So gorgeous!! for 6 bucks or 7 bucks Canadian, it is my HG purple eyeshadow!!

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Fusion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2010

Not wonderful, but not horrible either. I've definitely tried worse. I am not a fan of the Lash Blast formula, as I find it too sticky, which consequently makes my eyelashes clump together. I got the Last Blast Fusion in Blue (only because it was on sale and I figured that it would look natural on my black lashes). It gives a nice, natural daytime look, but I cannot build a lot of volume and …Read more

Eye Shadow - Hard Candy - Meteor Eyes Baked Glitter Eyeshadow Lunar Eclipse

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2010

Let me just start off by saying that when asked whether I would buy this product again, I would say yes, but I don't think that I would puchase the same colour (Lunar Eclipse) again. The shade just isn't the most flattering on me. In the pot, Lunar Eclipse looks like a beautiful golden-green with tons of gold glitter. But a swipe on the back of my hand or eyelid yields a muddy-looking …Read more

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - Soft Kohl - Denim Blue

3.0

Sep/25/2010

This eye pencil was a disappointment. Now I realize why it was on sale at Shopper's DM! Although, the regular price of $7.99 is way too high for a product of such low quality. It is more comparable to a low end brand like Wet and Wild or Bonne Bell than Rimmel. The pencil is quite hard (so much for its claims of "soft kohl." I have used real Indian soft kohl and Rimmel's …Read more
