This foundation is a solid medium coverage that can be built to full without looking cakey. I love the flawless finish and it does wear all day without breaking apart. The finish is satin-matte and keeps my oily t-zone under control. I have the colour 2N1 Cashew (light with neutral undertone). For the longest time Nars Sheer Glow was my go-to and favourite, but Flawless Fusion is quickly rising …Read more

Clinique DDML+ balances and hydrates my skin without leaving a greasy residue. This has been a staple for both my husband and I for years. I have tried a lot of moisturizers on the market - a lot of them boast made from natural ingredients and luxury ones too, but I always come back to this. CAD$36 for 4.2oz is a bargain, in my opinion. I have and will continue to repurchase this moisturizer.

As far as oil cleansers go, it doesn't get any better than this. The Softymo Speedy Oil Cleanser is the BEST oil cleanser I've tried so far. Some of my favourite features: 1. It has a thin consistency, which is different from most other thick-feeling oil cleansers and which helps it spread across my face much easier; 2. I like that it's fragrance free; 3. Non-irritating and …Read more

I like this product, but not for the 'treatment' aspect it was marketed to be. I like that it makes my lips appear plumper and smoother so I wear it purely for cosmetic reasons. I also enjoy the light strawberry fragrance. But it fails completely at doing any kind of repair to dry chapped lips.

I have used up a bottle and am on my second. This is one of the most effective acne fighting cleansers Which helped me realize that my skin likes glycolic aka AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). There is no doubt AHA smoothes the texture of my skin by exfoliating the dead cells that clogs pores. I have brighter younger looking skin for it. For $10.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart, this gem is fantastic value. My …Read more

This foundation feels weightless on my skin. It gives a light-medium coverage (leaning more on light), which is perfect for me as I only need evening out of my skin tone. It lasts quite a long time, especially if I set it with powder and wear primer underneath it. My only qualm is it doesn't appear to have that much foundation inside the spongey compact and I am afraid it would run out very …Read more

I would repurchase but there is so much product in this compact that I seriously believe I will not run out of it for the next 10 years, even with daily use, which is a good thing since this costs like a shit tonne. I have been eyeing this highlighter for about a year and have swatched it a few times in stores, but due to the pretty price tag, I never thought it was worth it. Now I regret not …Read more

Feb/11/2016

I'm surprised by the mixed reviews and am not sure why because I simply adore this foundation. I'm 27, have dry-combo skin, and luckily have clear skin now... there's a silver lining to aging after all... no more pimples! I needed a foundation that wouldn't cling to dry patches, even out my skin tone, looks like natural skin, and is long-wearing and this foundation ticks all …Read more

I purchased the pink one bc it smells delish, like their peach handcream! I think it is the one for dry skin, which is what I have so it works out well for me. I apply it in after foundation/powder to take away the cakey dry finish and it keeps me moisturizes/dewy for the rest of the day. The dewy finish may not be for everybody, so beware. I love how youthful it makes me look. This is very …Read more
