I love Benefit's high beam! It's the only liquid highlighter I would ever use that gives me the perfect glow. I'm really bad at contouring my chubby cheeks, but when I apply this highlighter, the contouring comes alive and really makes my face more shapely!!

I think the packaging is fair--I am currently going through the mini version, and it's getting harder to get …

Gorgeous champagne, shimmery pink shade that reminds me of Urban Decay's Sin eyeshadow. This is a staple for my everyday neutral look (paired with Wedge or Sketch). I absolutely love this shade--perfect on different skin tones. Very pigmented too!

My all time favourite terracotta, coral blush. It looks scary orange in the pan, but gives a nice flush for my NC25-30 skintone. This is one that I've repurchased over and over again. It's a fantastic summer shade!

It's a foolproof color--it works amazingly well as a blush or a light bronzer.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

Feb/03/2012

This is one of those nice to have products. I'm not a big fan of eye makeup base, and when I first purchased this, I had a lot of expectations. I was a little disappointed as it made no difference compared to without it. The pot lasts a long time, but I've found it to start separating after a couple of months even though I've always closed the lid tightly. If you have this problem …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Harmony

I'm surprised that this was marketed as a blush because it certainly is more of a contour color rather than a blush. It's a dark brown, matte, almost muddy shade, but looks great on my NC25-30 skin tone. It's a true brown whereas NARS Casino has a little tinge of orange in it.

Great product--has lasted me for a long time (Almost 3 years now). Covers up quite well if your blemishes are minor, but if you have "valley" scarring, it will set. I have this in NC30, however will not be repurchasing simply because it's so expensive. I can get a good usage out of a Maybelline one at a fraction of the price.

This is actually the only one of Britney's perfume I have repurchased. Originally purchased it for $20 at Shoppers, a year ago, this has a clean, spring scent, perfect for everyday wear. I just repurchased this large size bottle at Shoppers Drug Mart (Canadian) for $10/each (100ml) <-- MASSIVE steal!

Love this scent and it lasts a long time. Smells wonderful during the summer …

I debated for the longest time that I needed a red lipstick, so off I went to a MAC counter. While I was there, a MAC associate was kind enough to pull out several different shades for me to try. I asked to try Ruby Woo and Russian Red since I’ve heard so many good things about them, but he recommended something else. He handed me MAC Lady Danger, and I almost did not want to try it because it’s …Read more

When I first saw reviews on these online, I was immediately intrigued: not only are they shaped very similarly to my much beloved collection of MAC Mineralized Skinfinish blushes, but they are so much more affordable at $7.99 a piece! Everywhere I read reviews on these blushes, they are always saying something along the line “You need this!” or “Dupe for MAC MSFs” …Read more
