Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

4.0

Nov/13/2012

I'm so annoyed that Maybelline doesn't sell this product in Canada anymore! I've been using this in between trying different mascaras for the past 3 years and I always come back to this. I've always had issue with waterproof mascaras making my lashes too hard and brittle so I fell in love when I first started using this mascara because it really does leave your lashes very …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2012

Much like other commenters who have the waterproof version - DON'T buy this mascara if you need a waterproof mascara. Even if the packaging SAYS waterproof. I have Asian lashes and I have to use waterproof mascaras to hold the curl. So obviously, this did nothing for me. I blame the formula for being too wet, because it just weighs down the lashes and doesn't dry quick enough to set a …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Tickle My France-y

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2011

One of my favourite nude polishes. I had Samoan Sand as well but that was too sheer for my taste (meaning Tickle My France-y is much more opaque but to get to a solid opaqueness I needed 3 coats), I hate it when you can see the whites of my nails under polish. Anyway, the colour is great for any skin tone in my opinion. It looked good when I was paler in the winter, and right now with a little …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #217 Blending

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

1) This is a blending brush so obviously it's great for crease work. It's practically my magic brush when I'm feeling lazy. It helps me create a lovely seamless crease colour blended very nicely into my main lid colour. It's also great as a quick/on-the-go/in-a-rush brush because you can sweep it over the lids for a wash of colour. I don't usually use this brush to blend …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #219 Pencil Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

I'll keep this simple :)
1) A nicely pointed tip on a round brush provides create precision when you want to blend... but blend precisely. Like for a smokey eye or applying colour to the crease. I personally love to use this as a brush to blend out eyeliner or black e/s (as a liner) to create a softer look. Pointed tip also let's you apply lighter colours accurately on your inner …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - # 239 Eye Shader Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

I'll keep this simple:
1) Thick, soft bristles get a good amount of product onto brush. I often find that I don't have to 're-dip' my brush into an e/s as often as when I use a smaller brush.
2) As it's got quite a lot of bristles it creates a thick enough tip that's great for blending out colours in the crease and for placing colours on the 'outer …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Top Coat

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

I don't really like this top coat. It's definitely not quick drying, and it gets goopy on me really easily. I haven't even used up half of the bottle and I've owned it for less than a year, but the consistency has already started getting goopy on me. This creates a really thick layer which takes forever to dry. I'm definitely trying out the Seche Vite that everyone's …Read more

Treatments - OPI - Natural Nail Strengthener

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

My aunt is a make up artist and last year she recommended that I use this nail strengthener as a base coat instead of an actual 'base coat'. I've never been too bothered with my nails - never had anything like acrylics done - and I only get a manicure from time to time. Putting colour on my nails is just a way to pass the time and express myself. So this was a good money saver …Read more

Eye Shadow - Sugarpill Cosmetics - Burning Heart 4-Color Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

I see that other members have very kindly provided background on Sugarpill so I won't dwell on it. My story is that I first heard of Sugarpill from Petrilude (Josh), then later saw more from xSparkage (Leesha), JulieG713 (Julie) and Jazziebabycakes (Jasmine) - all beauty gurus on YouTube. All of them have reviews on youtube so please feel free to look them up for more …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2010

I love this colour. Frankly, it's the very first green nail varnish that I saw and loved immediately. Greens just never popped out as a good colour to have on my nails, but CG totally changed that idea for me!
Four Leaf Clover is a gorgeous bright green on the bluer side. In some lights it looks bluer and in others it looks greener. I think bright colours like these are a hit or miss …
