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…

Huda Beauty Contour Lip Set Review – Liquid Matte Lipstick and Contour Matte Pencil Review

These were all the rage when they first came out. Everyone was excited to try this makeup line created by the successful beauty blogger and celebrity makeup artist – Huda Kattan. Currently, the Huda Beauty line only carries false lashes, liquid lipsticks and lip liners, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they expanded their range in the near future after such a success with their recent launches. The Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set comes with three items: two travel sizes…

Best of Becca Youthful Glow Set

Backlight Priming Filter C$46 when sold individually At first, I didn’t want to pick this up because I only heard good things about this product from those who have dry, dehydrated skin (and it’s VERY expensive C$46). Well, I’m here to tell all you lovely oily-skinned girls out there that the Becca Backlight Priming Filter works beautifully on our skin as well! I like using it underneath my heavier, mattifying foundations to make the finish more natural while keeping the…

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. To find a bronzer for your skin tone, click…
