Honest product reviews for the savvy consumer.

Monthly Archives: May 2018

Pick it up at: Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart

Price: $8.99 on sale at Shoppers

Pros: Natural ingredients. Natural look. Feels good on the lips with a nice slip to it.

Cons: Twist up dispenser with brush. Doesn’t wear very long.

Thoughts: It feels very nice on the lips when first applied. I’m not a fan of this applicator, I found I couldn’t get enough or I had put too much on and had to blot some off. This colour is very light on my lips and did not show up very well. It wore off quickly and I had to reapply multiple times during the day. My lips would feel extremely dry between applications.

Would I buy again? No

Pick it up at: Sephora

Price: $45 CAD

Pros: Its good for light to medium skin tones. It neutralizes pink or reddish skin. Feels lightweight on the skin and wears well all day long. It has a pump. Light to medium coverage.

Cons: It’s a moisturizer so oily skin people might find themselves shiny. It only comes in one colour. Might not deliver on the benefits as advertised.

Thoughts: I really like this B.B. cream! I have very oily skin and I do have to apply a powder after application as it feels a bit sticky on my skin. I use a brush for application to give me sheer coverage. I really use it as a foundation and not for the B.B. Cream benefits. This product is the perfect colour on my “winter” skin, but will be far too light for summer. It lasts all day on me and it looks great by the end of the day.

Would I buy again? Yes for sure!


My favourite time of the month is here! It’s lovely to try out new beauty items and this Month’s Topbox had products I had never tried before!

Clinique eye makeup remover. Hope it does the job!

I’m going to follow up with Blaq charcoal eye mask. I’m sure it will feel amazing!

The Delectable Body Butter Cream smells amazing.

Nude by Nature Natural Glow Loose Bronzer in Bondi Bronze. Smooth, silky and gives a lovely glow to my hand. I’ll try it on my face tomorrow!

I may have tried this Simple cleansing facial wipe before. I’m going to save it for when I travel. This bonus product came with some coupons that I might even use!

Great Topbox this month! I love trying new things!
