Bareminerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolour

If I (only) had one weakness as a makeup lover, it would be my obsession with liquid lipsticks. There’s something about a longwearing product that calls my name. The Bareminerals Gen Nude Lipcolour (C$23) claims to be a longwearing, moisturizing, full-coverage, cream-to-matte lip colour. Did Baremineral’s take on a longwearing lip colour meet my expectations? Keep reading to find out. Product The Gen Nude Matte Lipcolour applies like a mousse – feeling thin and lightweight for the entire duration of…

Pixi Skintreats Peel & Polish

Canada recently started carrying Pixi Beauty and Skintreats line in Shoppers Drug Mart.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème

 Apparently I’m on a liquid lipstick kick because it seems to be the only type of product I want to review nowadays. I’ve heard such great things about the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crèmes (C$38) by everyone on Youtube, so I thought I should try it to let you guys know if it’s worth the hype, and whether or not there are any dupes. Product The Marc Jacobs Lip Crème is basically a long wearing lipstick melted into a tube.…

Laneige Two Tone Lip Bars No Comments

Laneige Two Tone Lip Bars

Product The Laneige Two Tone Lip bar (C$35) is a very soft lipstick with a malleable texture. Despite the lip balm consistency, you will see full pigmentation in only 1-2 swipes, like in the swatch above. Similarly to most stains, it will dry down with a slight drying effect (except for The Face Shop Tint-in-oil, reviewed here!), so make sure you exfoliate properly or apply a lip balm prior to this product. Since the colour is only separated by a…

Essence Shape Your Face Contouring Palette

Product The Shape Your Face Contouring Palette (C$6.99) powders are a nice consistency and don’t kick up a lot of powder when you dip your brush in them. The powders in the Shape Your Face palette are not soft when you dip your fingers in them, but all of the shades except for the highlight have a fairly good colour pay-off. Now so far, nothing about the Shape Your Face palette sounds extraordinary until we look at the longevity. THAT…

The Face Shop Tint-in-oil

Product The Face Shop Tint-in-oil (C$15) is a lightweight oil with no stick and gives your lips a nice, juicy shine. It contains a surprising amount of good-for-you ingredients such as sweet almond oil, rosemary leaf oil, matricaria flower oil, lavender oil, and rose flower oil. These oils cause the product to be very slippery, so the lip oil will transfer to anything and everything your lips touch, but your lips will feel moisturized and comfortable. It is so light…

Bite Beauty Lip Pencil

 Product These lip pencils (C$20) are soft and glide on easily on the lips. Since Bite Beauty’s lip products are food grade and do not contain parabens, sulfates or phthalates, this is a great alternative for those who like to know that their lip products are safe to consume. However despite the great texture, if you are like me and you like fill in your whole lip with lip liner, it will take a while because the lip pencil is…
