Looooved this, I have oily skin but in the dry Canadian winters I need to use something a lot more forgiving than my normal matte foundations, and this has been perfect so far. It sinks into the skin sooo well, I feel like it never comes off on my hands or my phone. It doesn't do too much to mattify, but a light dusting of powder will do the trick. This doesn't cling on to any dryness and it doesn't separate when your oils come through. You can apply this with your fingers but my favourite way is to use a sponge because it's faster and looks more natural. I use the second shade, 21 light beige for my NC15 complexion, which is light enough but is a touch too pink for my taste, although I'm so pale you can barely notice. That being shade, I'm usually too dark for the lightest shade in a collection so the fact that the second lightest shade is perfect for my winter skin tone suggests that porcelain peeps would absolutely love the lighest shade, 13 Milky beige.

The formula itself is amazing. Super pigmented, non-drying, and blends beautifully. One dip into the tube is enough to cover your entire highlighting areas, which is great if you're in a rush. My one irk with this is the shade range. I originally used the fair neutral but that was a little too brightening for my undereye, so I purchased one shade darker, light neutral. It is literally darker than my skin tone?? When wet it looks just right to match me, no highlight, but it dries way peachier and looks more like a NW20. So yeah that's super annoying because there is no perfect shade for me, but if they expand the range then it would take this product to a 5 star rating.

I like this palette, but it didn't wow me the way I wanted it to. I find the lighter shimmer shades to be rather chunky, and three of the brown shades, mugshot, factory, and liar, look different in the pan but look virtually the same on my eyes. The only shades I really like in this palette are the mattes, which have a really nice formula, but all of them are quite light so there is essentially no crease shades for darker skin-tones. Altogether, this palette is way overhyped and overpriced, I would much rather purchase the Lorac unzipped palette instead of this.

My holy grail mascara. Very similar to the Benefit Roller Lash with how it curls and volumises, but obviously much cheaper. This mascara doesn't flake or smudge on me, and it adds a nice curl to my lashes that lasts all day. Half-star taken off because Maybelline isn't a cruelty free company :/

This is a good primer, but I don't really understand the hype when the ELF primer is just as good. I've heard the primer potion in the shade Eden is better because it cancels out veins on the eyelid, but I purchased the classic transparent one and wasn't super wowed.

MAC's satin formula is basically my ideal matte formula. It looks very matte on the lips, is long-lasting, and doesn't make my lips feel dry. Twig is also a beautiful nude for light-medium skintones, and has that classic MAC vanilla scent. Also is fairly cheap for a high-end lipstick, half-star was taken off because MAC isn't cruelty free.

Got this in the Kathleenlights quad and I liked it the least out of all of the others. I think this colour is a gorgeous crease shade for lighter skin tones, but I found the formula to be much stiffer than the other shadows. It's too stiff to apply and blend with my fingers, I find that I need to use a dense synthetic brush in order to make it work. But once I do use a brush, the effect is very nice and long-lasting.

My favourite colour from the Kathleenlights quad, a gorgeous golden bronze. This one is definitely the softest out of all of them, and the pigment truly looks metallic on your lids, even though there is no chunky glitter in this.

Beautiful colour, a lovely warm-toned nude for light-medium skin tones. Reminds me more of a satin finish, which I prefer considering that mattes can be quite drying. Lasts quite long for a lipstick, maybe 4-6 hours. Only thing I don't like is that it can be a little hard to apply, the tube itself is great but the formula drags a little and is moderately thick on the lips. These are why it's so long-lasting, but if a heavier lipstick bothers you I wouldn't recommend this.

My holy grail transition shade. I've hit pan on it, which is crazy considering how much product you get. I use it mostly for warm looks but you can use it for neutral looks as well. This shade is slightly powdery because it is so pigmented, but I love it so much anyway. Picture on the MUG website makes it looks really pink, but in reality it is a very beautiful soft brown with slightly warm undertones

Packaging kinda sucks but the actual product is a fairly good powder. Sets makeup well and isn't too cakey, best for normal-oily skin. Will leave a white cast on darker skin tones

I really classic champagne highlighter shade, great for fair skintones. Can be a little intense and sparkly at times, but if you use a light hand it looks really nice. Perfect highlighter for beginners, and there's a lot of product in the pan. I usually don't use the mirrors in compacts, but for highlight I do so that I can do it by a window in natural light, making the large mirror in this highlight very useful.

This colour is famous for contouring, but I think the new formula is a little too cool-toned and dark. A little chalky and hard to blend as well.

VERY siliconey so it does fill in pores well, but I wish it had more properties other than just that. Doesn't help with the longevity of my foundation, and foundation will still cling to dry patches if you use this.

Smells amazing and I love how it exfoliate super gently, but I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin because of the natural fragrances. Also it goes off really quickly, so I keep mine in the freezer and take out a little chunk to use each week. I love using it in the shower, but it rinses of fairly easily in the sink too.

Way too strong to use on the face (in my opinion), but a great body exfoliate. Wouldn't use it after shaving though, can burn a little. Very strong and refreshing scent, which can be a pro or con.

LoOOooove the cupcake one! Feels amazing and minty, the cocoa nibs really exfoliate my skin. Would NOT use on sensitive skin because mint and all of those smelly-ingredients can be irritating, but for my oily and acne-prone skin this mask is amazing for a pampering session.
