Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow in bitter

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/08/2009

My Overgrown shadow finally ran out so I bought Bitter as it looked to be a very similar shade but to my disappointment it wasn't. I found that it was far more matte a shade than Overgrown so it was very hard to work with. I had to really layer it on to get the colour to pop which I hate to have to do- too time consuming in the morning. I didn't have any problem with staying power as I …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara

1.0

Mar/14/2009

I essentially got this for free when I cashed in my Shoppers Optimum points. I thought that this might be an inexpensive lengthening mascara to replace my more expensive ones. Truth be told, I was totally not impressed. The lengthening aspect was okay but the formula made my lashes look clumpy and flaky. So I guess it's back to the more expensive mascara...at least I know they work!

Misc Beauty Tools - Sephora Collection - Blotting Papers

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2009

I had run out of the Sephora brand Matte Blotting Film and needed to get more. I accidently grabbed these ones thinking they were the same ones that I used. Um no, these were the blotting papers and I hated them. They always tear when I rub these on my face and I need 2-3 to absorb the oil on my face as opposed to only needing 1 of the film sheets.

I have been on the hunt for a nice plum coloured mascara since I ran out of my Clinique Black Honey mascara (and was reluctant to spend $37 on Guerlain's Le 2 Mascara). I tried to make do with Almay's Intense I-Colour mascara in Raisin Quartz but no matter how I applied it, it would look like a clumpy mess- plus it did nothing to lengthen or volumize my lashes. When I went to the …Read more

Powder - L'Oreal Paris - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/14/2008

I used this when it first came out and really liked it but jumped on the Bare Minerals bandwagon when it came to Canada. After using Bare Minerals for 2 years, I found that it was really clogging my pores and since I was forgoing the sun and was quite pale, the lightest BE shade was too dark for me. I decided to try the L'oreal Bare Naturale foundation again as it now came in lighter shades …Read more

Mascara - GUERLAIN - Le 2 de Guerlain

Sep/14/2008

Being the cosmetics junkie that I am, I am always on the lookout for the perfect mascara, lipstick, blush, etc, etc. One of the Cosmetic Consultants at Shoppers Drug Mart, gave me a sample of the black Le 2 mascara and I really liked it. So I tried the brown which was a really nice chestnut brown. It made my lashes really REALLY long and wondefully defined- it didn't clump and best of all it …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Couleur Experte -hair dye / highlight

Jun/19/2008

I have used this before in red tones but I thought that I would give it a try in the 5.3 Chocolate Macaroon (medium golden brown with blonde highlights.) I used the first part of the kit and got a nice brown shade (darker than medium but it was not bad) I then put in the highlights (no easy feat). The highlighting product was messy, hard to apply with a flimsy mascara-like wand, and really hard …Read more

Hair Color - REVLON - Professional Nutricolor

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2008

Revlon Professional Nutricolor is a colour depositing conditioner that is absolutely the best conditioner that you can buy if you want to rev up your colour (natural or not). It comes in a ball shaped bottle with a pump top which makes it easy to dispense with one hand. The colour is UNBELIEVABLY concentrated so I would strongly advise that you wear gloves so the product doesn't stain your …Read more

Lash Treatments - MAVALA - Double-Lash

This is great stuff...I wanted to add some ooomph to my lashes as they are okay- not great. I have been using it for about 6 weeks now and I have defintely noticed a difference in my lashes....not as much in my top lashes but my bottom lashes are waaay longer. I apply it on both my top and bottom lashes by wriggling the brush from root to tip. That's it! Works like a charm.

Jun/01/2008

I have terribly damaged nails from my ongoing use of fake nails... my natural nails have always been soft and have peeled very easily so I thought that I would give this a try. So far so good....I have definitely noticed my nails getting harder as well they are splitting and peeling far less. Will update once I have used this for a full month. Oh ya, for all the people in Canada looking to buy …Read more
