This is so unbelievably good, I cannot sing its praises enough. Hands down the best cold brew coffee you can buy from the store.
It has such a good flavor to it. Plus, it really has a serious kick in it that just puts me in a good mood. Coffee lovers, you must try this! If you love the coffee beans used in various Trader Joe brand coffees, you will adore their cold brew just as much.
Ahh, I am going to go in hiding immediately after I write this, but, none of the Maybelline Fit Me foundations works for me. None! From settling on my face weirdly, to looking a bit... off, and feeling too heavy, I am never happy with its appearance on my skin.
It consistently looks bad. Even during the time of the year where my skin goes from suddenly dry to oily. I need a hashtag: extreme combination skin problems.
There’s this quality to it that looks cakey on me amd leaves me feeling like I applied too much makeup in the dark. Or that suddenly, I am a makeup newbie who can’t make something work.
I am starting to think (1) Foundation is public enemy #1 or (2) I am somehow ending up with old, lesser bottles of product.
Ultimately, this is not the product for me. But it is definitely more of a personal experience.
Fantastic scent, affordable price point and a very friendly travel size and shape. I carry one of these with me pretty much everywhere and it fits perfectly in just about every purse.
Due to its scent, I can’t say for certain that it is gentle and wearable for sensitive skin. It hasn’t bothered me but it’s all very subjective to the person. I love all of the scents but this one is by far my favourite!
As for the lotion and application: it applies very smoothy and feels so nice on my hands. Especially during the winter, when I get extra dry from changing temps. Eos Hand Lotion leaves your hands soft and hydrated, without any greasiness.
This really gets the job done and you just can’t beat the price point! It tames your hairs frizzy texture and really does give off a sleek, high quality shine. Upon styling your hair, you’ll notice a real difference!
As with all oils, this oil treatment for your hair is best used in small portions. Unless you want to look greasy.
I received the Brow Down to Me brow pencil via Joah and Influenster for free in exchange for my honest review, this does not change my opinion in any way.
Ah, no! I am so bummed that I am rating this pencil a 2.5 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), but hear me out: taste is subjective and, when it comes to all beauty products, it boils down to personal preference.
Let’s tackle positives first: GREAT packaging, a spoolie, the pencil is the right shape to mimic hairs, the price point is incredible. I think a lot of eyebrow pencil users will love it for those reasons.
For me, it just didn’t work out. None of the colours are great for my look—natural dark blonde with hints of auburn, presently fully light auburn—and I nabbed the colour nearest to my natural hair colour. In a pinch, it wasn’t bad.
I had to really work to get any colour payoff. I found the pencil to be a bit too dry, and it took a lot of time to warm it up and get it to show up in my brows. This, again, may just me being picky—I seem to have grown to prefer gels in the place of pencils.
Overall, it wasn’t for me but is far from a bad product.
3.5 stars, not 3! I was really surprised with this concealer. It offers a pretty great amount of coverage, I’d say maybe the lower end of high coverage. I will say that when it was good, it was good, but when it was bad it was, well, bad.
On good skin days, for me: No Filter Concealer gets the job done and stays put for a busy day. I have very pale, dry and dark circle prone skin—it takes a lot for a concealer to work on my skin. The No Filter formula applies smoothly, and so long as your skin is moisturized it does not put the spotlight on any dry textures.
But on my bad days, it was prone to creasing and just looking wonky. And if my dark circles were on high alert (which happens more than I care for) it took a lot of building.
It is a really nice formula, like most Colourpop products it is incredibly high quality for its price. I had to buy two colours to mix and get a good match for my skin but at the price, I wasn’t all that bothered!
This was one of those palettes I had wanted for so long before caving. I am a sucker for a good green eyeshadow and the Emerald City palette has quite a few mixed into its colour story.
Cargo’s shadows have this buttery texture to them that makes application incredibly simple. They blend wonderfully and it’s quite simple to create minimal and intense looks.
I will say that they have a consistency issue in quality and in the three palettes I have, each of them have at least two highly similar shades that are underwhelming in pigmentation. In the case of Emerald City, “Space Needle” and “Seaport” are equally underwhelming and are way too similar in appearance.
And sadly, two of the three greens fall into a bad habit of showing up like more of a gray shade on my eyes. Which is weird and highly disappointing. No matter how much I build them up, they just aren’t great.
So, 4 out of 12 colours in this palette do very little. The rest of Emerald City is admittedly beautiful, my favourite shades being, “Pier 52”, “Lake Union” and “The Hill”.
I ended up going on a Cargo binge-buy a few months back and The Essentials was one of my first buy-and-tries, and probably my favourite product from the brand.
This palette comes with a free brush and an eyeliner pencil. However, I actually hated both, so I tossed them and knocked off a star from my rating.
As far as neutral eyeshadow palettes go, The Essentials isn’t the most unique product. It isn’t meant to be. The colour story is simple and pretty, easy to combine multiple classic day to night looks.
The only two colours I had issues with were “Urban” and “Plaza”—they are pretty in the pan, but way too similar. Upon application, unfortunately, it becomes apparent there is virtually no pigmentation and neither show up on me.
As for the other colours, the apply beautifully and are easy to build up. Application is lovely too—Cargo’s formula is buttery and super easy to blend, with very little fall out.
Overall, it’s a really nice palette and perfect for beginners.
