  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers All-Day Hydrating Make-up

    I would definitely repurchase this foundation. It was hydrating but didn't make me oily, great coverage, great price and I loved the finish. It made me break out slightly if I wore it for a couple days straight, but most foundations will. Also I don't think it is as long lasting as it claims, with a primer maybe 8 hours but It's still worth it. I would definitely recommend this, the only reason I had to stop using it was because my skin colour had changed and was too light for it.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    Great product but made me break out

    I loved this product at first, it went on beautifully, wasn't cakey, perfect amount of coverage for me. I was in love with it, I started wearing it constantly and I ended up breaking out really badly. I can wear it maybe once or twice a week, but no more unless I want to be dealing with constant pimples. It made me a little greasy which may have had to do with the zits and it wasn't entirely long lasting. Although I would definitely repurchase this, IF I didn't break out. I recommend to dry skin, combo or oily may have trouble with oiliness or breakouts.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    Great product, unrealistic price.

    I tried this primer in a sample and oh my goodness, it made my skin super silky and smooth and absorbed into my skin quickly. My makeup went on perfectly, although it didn't last as long as I would have hoped, I would buy this product in a heartbeat if it weren't 50 dollars.

  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

    This cleanser is raved about so I figured I'd give it a try, it doesn't have a smell and is very gentle. But I don't think it cleaned my skin as well as some other products, I didn't notice any difference in my skin. It didn't improve my skin but it also didn't make it worse. I found it didn't get rid of my makeup very well either. I was able to use it up but I wouldn't repurchase it.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

    I loved this product in the summer, it truly left my skin refreshed and soft and moisturized. It was lightweight, never greasy, absorbed quickly into my skin and didn't break me out. In the summer I absolutely loved this, but in fall and winter when the weather became dry, it was too lightweight and wasn't enough to moisturize my skin. I would recommend in spring and summer or if you live in a warm, humid climate. But in Canada winters this wasn't enough to keep my skin moisturized.

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Corrector

    This was long lasting, easy to use and good coverage. It could look a little cakey under the eyes though, so I honestly used it for zits more than under eyes. You don't need much so you get a lot for your money. I would repurchase but not for under eyes, more for blemishes.

  • Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder
    3.0

    Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

    Too light of coverage

    This powder truly did look naked, but it also didn't do anything. Maybe tune down shine a bit. It didn't last very long to hit pan because I felt the need to use a lot to get even the slightest difference or use out of it. It didn't get cakey no matter how many layers I used but it seemed more like a translucent powder than a regular powder. Would not repurchase.

  • Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Waterproof Mascara by Grow Luscious

    This was a very voluminous mascara and it gave pretty good length. But only if you were careful, it can get very clumpy and messy. It has wet formula which can get everywhere, and I really didn't like the brush. It bent awkwardly making it difficult to get to the lashes without getting everywhere. the formula is decently long lasting and doesn't flake or smudge, but the brush was frustrating to work with.

  • Jordana Cosmetics INCOLOR Fabuliner Liquid Eyeliner

    I liked the color of this eyeliner. Although it wasn't very longlasting, it faded quckly. Also the tip was thick making it difficult to get a natural, thin line. It always looked messy and uneven. It was decent for the price but I wouldn't repurchase it.

  • Maybelline New York Color Pearls Marbleized Eyeshadows

    This is one of the best drugstore eyeshadows I've used. It blends amazingly, the colours are great and easy to use. It's not messy, as in it's not too powdery. I will definitely purchase other colours of these eyeshadows. My only complaint is these don't last super long, they last long enough but they do tend to fade and crease. Even then, the creasing is barely noticeable.
