Lips - Caudalie - Lip Conditioner Stick for Dry Sensitive Lips

5.0

Feb/02/2016

I have been struggling with super chapped lips (EOS sucks). I mean like cracked and flaking along the edge of my lips, making me look super dehydrated, kind of chapped. Whenever my lips get dry, the first place to dry up is my cupid's bow.

No matter how much burts bees, chapstick, jack black or EOS lip balm I rubbed on my lips the dry patches would not go away. Even with …

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Night Oil

5.0

Oct/04/2015

Ah Sunday Riley, oh how I love your products but hate your prices. I can see how this can justify the price tag with the fresh ingredients and the overnight results, but $131 CAD every few months is just unsustainable. :(

That being said, yes I saw the overnight results that everyone was raving about on here. However, it took some work to see those overnight results. When I first used …

Masks - LUSH - Cupcake Fresh Face Mask

3.0

Feb/16/2015

The consistency of the mask is far too thick for it to be easily spread over the face. There were chunks of exfoliants that made this process even harder.

In terms of having any sort of lasting effect on the skin, I could see or feel none. This, coupled with the fact that the scent was obnoxious and the mask was uncomfortable to use, made me really unhappy with this mask. :(

Skincare - Face - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray

This is a comparison review against the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray.

Before I begin this review, I just wanted to point out that UD is actually owned by L'oreal, which would probably explain why the ingredients lists for both products are very similar. Both products perform very similarly. I almost don't even notice a difference between the abilities of both products on …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Round Lipstick in Pumpkin Pie #630

Dec/08/2014

I first heard about these lipsticks from cl2425 on youtube; she said they were very good especially for the price. I thought that I would like it just as much as her, so I went out and bought one. Good thing i didn't fall into temptation and buy more!

The formula is soooo buttery smooth. Unfortunately its so smooth that it settles immediately into lip lines/wrinkles and bleeds …

Cleansers - ORIGINS - Checks and Balances

I got a sample of this stuff from Sephora. A very generous associate came over to me and decided to shower me with many samples from Origins. /happy dance

Of those samples, I really enjoyed using this product the most. For reference, my skin type is truly combination. I have the oily T-zone, the dry parched cheeks, and random breakouts scattered on the lower half of my face and nose …

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Rosebud Salve

3.0

Oct/07/2014

I don't get the hype over this product. its basically Vaseline in a tin with a little bit of rose fragrance. The ingredient listed first is petroleum (=Vaseline). So this is essentially overpriced Vaseline.

The packaging sucks. the product is so goopy that when applied will remain on the finger. It feels awful on the lips, isn't very moisturizing and doesn't last very …

For reference, I am an nc25-nc30 and am in the shade B20. O20 and I20 were too yellow for me.

I love this product. Its skin perfection magic in a bottle. The consistency of he product is a thin runny liquid that sets quickly into a beautiful comfortable glowy matte finish. It conceals all redness and dark spots, while blurring pores and uneven skin textures.

The packaging …

I am probably one of the very few people who have very little good things to say about this foundation.

Just for reference, I have combination skin with both very oily areas and very dry flake areas. I have acne scars and a fee cystic bumps every month. My asian skin is nc25 to nc30 and I am in the shade 2N1 Desert Beige. For the record, this shade is a pretty good match; just a …

BB Cream - HANSKIN - Super Light Touch BB Cream

Nov/01/2013

This bb cream is the bomb. I've tried many bb creams before from brands like skin79, brtc, missha, etude house, thefaceshop and skinfood BUT none of them compare to this one. This Hanskin bb cream is, as its name indicates, is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. What I love about this bb cream is that it isn't one of those overly pale, grey, peach or pink bb creams. The colour is …Read more
