Essence Pure Nude Highlight Review No Comments

Essence Pure Nude Highlight Review

I visited three different drugstores near me just to find the Essence Pure Nude highlight. It was worth it. I LOVE this highlight. The effect it gives is comparable to liquid highlighters. It makes you look like you just ran around the block a few times, and there is a nice, natural shine that accentuates the flattering points of the face. Since that would never happen in real life, we need this Essence Pure Nude Highlighter to do it for…

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer Review No Comments

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer Review

Product The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is a very smooth powder that is bordering a cream. It takes some time to build up because it is not very opaque, but blending this is incredibly easy, and it will definitely not look cakey. This bronzer gives a natural sheen that imitates natural skin, and the shimmer that is lending this product its glow is nearly undetectable. (For more bronzer reviews, click here.

Essence Soft-Touch Mousse Foundation Review

Product The Essence Soft-Touch Mousse Foundation (0.56oz for C$8) has a mousse-y jelly consistency. The formula dries down to a powder finish with a light coverage, and feels extremely lightweight on the skin. I love the finish it gives my skin, as it looks very natural. However, because of the mousse to powder formula, it emphasizes dry spots on the skin, making it not suitable for those with dry skin. The first time I applied this, the Essence foundation brought out…

NYX Haul + Mini Reviews

When a friend told me a makeup store called NYX opened up in a mall near me, I didn’t believe him (also didn’t help that we were camping, in the middle of nowhere, with no hopes of visiting the mall before the weekend was over). Nevertheless, when I got back home, I made it my mission to go to the NYX store. I picked up fewer products than I expected, but I’m happy I didn’t need to buy these items…

Maybelline Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paint Review

I regrammed a photo of the Maybelline Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paints (C$9.96) months before they were released because I was so excited for them. After reading Maybelline’s description of them, I expected them to be lip pigments that offered opaque, long-lasting coverage – the Cover Fx Custom cover drops of all lip products. Basically, I was expecting an intense pigment that can mix with your favourite lipsticks to create the perfect colour for you. Maybe I was expecting too…

August 2016 Makeup Empties

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light At first I wasn’t overly impressed with this concealer. When I purchased it, everyone I was following on Youtube were singing praises on this little guy. However, soon enough I followed suit. Even though this concealer feels extremely lightweight on the skin, it packs quite a punch with a solid medium coverage. I wouldn’t recommend this over severe blemishes, but it does tackle the undereyes quite well. I’ve heard great things about the neutralizer…

Dynamic Duo: Nyx Liquid Suede Lipsticks

Duped? Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette vs. E.L.F Contour Palette

Contour and highlighting seem to be all the rave right now in the makeup community, and I’d be lying if I said that it hasn’t affected me at all. I purchased the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette a few months ago and I have been using it non-stop every day ever since. If you saw my E.L.F Haul, you’ll know that I was so excited to see the expanded E.L.F collection in my local grocery store. I…
