I really liked this shade in the Jumbo Eye Pencil collection. It's no miracle pencil, but it did exactly what I thought it would at the price I paid for it. Coverage was good, it blended really nicely and didn't tug or pull on my eyelids when I applied. For the 4 hours I wore it for, it didn't crease on me, but since I didn't wear it for a full…

Gorgeous! This lives up to my high expectations of Bite Beauty Lipsticks. Beautiful colour, non drying and stays put for hours even without a primer. The colour pay-off is fantastic, and it glides onto the lips like butter. I can apply one coat in the morning and it lasts through meals, coffees and life. Can I also say the little box it comes in…

Reviewed on April 23, 2014

For me, this brush has it's ups and downs, but overall I've been very pleased with its performance. It buffs foundation beautifully leaving a soft streak-free finish, which is something I'm very appreciative of. This brush is fantastic when you're in a hurry in the morning, since the head is so large, although, that is also a negative quality as…

After the amazing success I had with Milk, I thought I would brach out in the Jumbo Eye Pencil category and reach for a new shade, and this one was very disappointing. It did not in any way match the quality and consistency of Milk and is difficult to use. I'm hoping that this one was just a fluke, and the rest of the colours in the collection are…

Where do I begin? Before I purchased this I had previously been using the whole "white base" concept, but with another more expensive pencil that didn't quite cut it. When I discovered this pencil, I swore I would never go back. There are so many amazing uses for this pencil that really do take your makeup to the next level. I use this over my…

This product took some time to love, and even still I find myself reaching for a brush over this sponge. It applies product beautifully, providing an airbrushed finish, but I find this specific tool is suited to products with fuller coverage, since you are able to "bounce" the BB to provide a streak free coverage. When I have time to apply my…

Despite so many negative reviews I've seen, I've never had many issues with this product. It's a very nice tinted moisturizer with a beautifully soft texture. It's also a fantastic base for the PurePressed Mineral Powder that Jane Iredale offers. Since I usually do layer a powder over top of this product, I'm not too concerned about how sheer it…

This product was recommended to me by my aesthetician almost 2 years ago, and I have been nothing but satisfied. It's natural, doesn't bug my acne prone skin, and even calms redness that I have lurking around when I apply. You can build this powder from a sheer light dusting to keep shine at bay, to a full coverage powder foundation without adding…

Really happy with this loose powder. Makes my skin feel velvety soft. This powder does exactly what it says. It blurs imperfections, made my skin look poreless, and produced a beautiful demi-matte finish- something exclusive to Urban Decay. I will say this, though: if you have any dry patches, by careful because if you apply too much of this…

At first, I was skeptical of this product, since I have had issues with cream blush in the past. After playing with this, I have become quite fond of it!

This pressed powder is absolutely beautiful. I use it constantly, and in many different looks. Just to preface, powder and I don't always get along. More often than not, it accentuates my dry spots and makes me look cakey. With this powder, it did none of those! It didn't accentuate any dry spots on my face, left my skin glowing, and didn't make…

Okay, this brush and I have had a bit of a love hate relationship, but overall it is a very sturdy and effective tool for applying makeup.

As someone who is relatively new to contour, this brush made the leap a breeze. Again, as someone with a petite face, it's not too huge that it cannot fit into the hollows of my cheeks. What I enjoy the most about this brush though is that it can do so much more than contour. I use it to apply highlighter, and even sometimes blush if I'm looking…

This brush is my absolute without a doubt go to for most of my liquid and cream foundations.

This is one of my favourite UD Eyeshadow shades. Applies beautifully.

I always make sure to gently tap off any excess to prevent this, and layer this colour over a base or primer. The base/primer also helps…

MAC Pigment is AMAZING! I have nothing bad to say about it, but took off a half a star because I found this pigment faded slightly. JUST SLIGHTLY. Other than that, I am hopelessly in love with this pigment, as it is the most amazing bright magenta you will ever find. NOTE: I purchased this in a PRO store.

This product is the most amazing metallic pink! Although, let me note that without a balm underneath (or the OCC Clear Tar, which I use) it can be drying, so prep the lip accordingly.
