Review for Pantene Thermal Heat Protection Pre-Styling Spray - 1 hour, 18 minutes ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
I think the spray on the bottle sprays pretty evenly, so I like that. It doesn’t make my hair feel greasy either, as some sprays do. I did feel like it was a bit sticky if any of the product landed on the counter or anything else. I also really am not a fan of the smell; it’s quite perfume-like and is pretty strong. Even after you blow dry your hair, it’s still a bit strong. Not extremely bad, but I can still smell it. I don’t think it was necessary to make it smell as strong as it does.

I just wanna say that I already have hair masks that I love, so I really didn’t expect much from this. I was pleasantly surprised! I’m pretty sure each tube is single use and there’s 15 ml in it, so I thought it would be too greasy to use all of it on my fine hair. I read on the website that it is made so you cannot over apply it, so I applied it all to my hair and it was true; you can’t really over apply it. And I did not apply to the roots, as per instructions. It made my hair feel very soft, and it was very easy to detangle my hair. I also loved that you only need to leave it in for a minute. I don’t think it’s actually doing anything for split ends other than just coating the ends to make it feel nice. But my hair didn’t feel greasy or heavy, it just feels super soft and hydrated. Smells really nice too! I don’t think you NEED to use the whole tube in one go, but it isn’t greasy even if you do.

Review for MAKE UP FOR EVER Sens'Eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser - 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 5
Purchased at: Sephora
This is a old favorite of mine. It truly does remove waterproof makeup. If you’ve ever tried any of makeup forever’s waterproof products, you know how hard they are to remove. Which is why their waterproof makeup remover HAS to be good (and it is!!). It has a lotion-like consistency and no smell that I pick up on. It has never burnt my eyes either. I pump some out onto a cotton pad, then put it onto my eye and soak it there (no rubbing) for like 15-20 seconds because I’m lazy. But even after like 8 seconds, it’s removed a lot of my waterproof mascara. I still use my cleansing balms for the rest of my face, but prefer to not do my mascara with, as I find that it’s not as fast as this to remove my waterproof mascara. Also, since it’s not liquidy, it’s really great for travel!

I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation. I usually have low expeditions with drugstore foundations, as they tend to be too pink or too orange. I was able to find a shade that’s pretty neutral in this line thankfully! I also LOVE the packaging. I know it sounds unimportant, but it has a pump (yay!) and so many drugstore foundations don’t have that!! And it’s such a nice pump too. Onto formula now. It’s very liquidy. It looks like maybe it would be super light coverage, but it’s not. I’d say it’s a medium coverage, but buildable, and it’s able to sheet out to light coverage. You also don’t need much, in my opinion. I don’t personally use more than 1 pump, and even 1 pump is a bit much for me. It doesn’t last very long on my nose or cheeks unfortunately :( I’m pretty oily there. Application-wise, it does go on pretty well with a brush, sponge, or hands. I will say that I don’t really love how it looks with a brush. I feel like it looks like I’m wearing foundation when I apply this foundation. It doesn’t look cakey, but it looks like I’m wearing makeup if that makes sense. It does last longer if I apply with a brush, but it looks too “clingy” on my skin. With a sponge, it goes on nicely. It gives a more lighter coverage finish and it’s more dewy. I definitely prefer to apply it with fingers. It blends really nicely. I find that even if the foundation has dried down, I’m still able to blend it out, which I LOVE. I don’t find many foundations that you can still blend out after it’s dried. Another negative is that it smells strongly of perfume, much like a Chanel foundation. But it doesn’t linger after you’ve applied it.

Review for: 3 LIGHT/MEDIUM more...
This is one of my favorite products ever!!! I got a sample in the shade 1 or 2, and I loved it. It gave me glow, but also like the slightest bit of coverage; barely there. I loved it, but found it was slightly too light to look like a natural glow “filter”; it looked more like a light highlight. So I got the shade 3, which is a bit darker than my skin, but it’s perfect. It doesn’t give me that “tinman” look. It’s more peachy and warm than I am, but once it’s blended out, you can’t tell. Even though I’m more oily, I still basically put it everywhere lol. As long as I powder, I’m good. It looks beautiful under or over foundation. It literally gives your skin a glowy “filtered” appearance. I don’t even know how to explain it. I sometimes just use it as a light light coverage all over if I’m just going to the grocery store or something. Then I add concealer over spots. But honestly it’s so gorgeous.

Review for: PILLOW TALK more...
I love most of charlottes products, and her eyeshadows are some of my absolute favorite. Ok so one of my favorite lipsticks of all time is pillowtalk, so I was very excited to try the palette. I love it! It definitely has the same color tones as the lipstick. It’s unfortunate that it probably won’t show up if you’re darker than like Mac nc25-30. The shadows are nice and butter and blend out nicely, just like her other shadows. I do, however think that the shades aren’t THAT different to others I have. I actually own lots of colors like this, so I was slightly disappointed by that. Of course I don’t own colors that are EXACTLY the same, but they are super similar. I was also a little disappointed that I have to layer it a couple times to get the pigment I want, and I’m not even in the medium shade range of skin. I wish she would have given a bit more depth to these shadows so they could work on more people. I know it sounds like I didn’t like it lol, but I do actually enjoy the palette. I just feel like it’s not as good as her other palettes :( especially considering the price.

I’m so happy shoppers drug mart started carrying this!!! I’ve wanted to try it for so long. Everything I’ve heard about it is true. It’s amazing. It smooths over the skin like a dream and really hydrates it. Since I’m more oily/combo, I barely need to use any of this. I use about a pea size amount or less, and it moisturizes my face without being too greasy. It also acts like a primer, so I put it on before my makeup and it leaves a nice smooth finish for my foundation to go over :) if you have dry skin you’d probably need to use a bit more than I do, but not much. My only complaint is that sometimes the product starts to flow out of the tube a lot. But not too big of a deal, as I just put the extra that flows out, into a little pot :)

Review for The Ordinary. Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion - 1 month ago

I’ve been using this for slightly over 2 months now. My reasoning for wanting to try it was to possibly help with what I think is hormonal acne. I don’t get anything severe, but I’d say mild hormonal acne. I haven’t noticed a difference in that, as I’m pretty sure retinols cant really help with hormonal acne. Thought I’d try anyways. Even though it hasn’t helped with acne, it has made my skin smoother in general. I’ve been using it almost every night for the past 2 months. It doesn’t sting or cause any flaking on me, but it’s also not a strong retinol. It goes on very nicely as well. After I’ve finished the whole bottle I will edit my review if anything has changed.

Review for Quay Australia - 2 months ago
I honestly loved my sun glasses at first, but they broke within a few months. The plastic frame broke. I babied them SO much too. I got the desi x quay on the low glasses. They looked sooo good and did a pretty decent job at actually blocking the sun. Also, I know that some might say that you get what you pay for, which is true. However, it was not cheap at all to get them shipped to Canada, especially with the conversion rate. And to have them break sooo quickly with me babying them so much was a disappointment to say the least. I’ve had $10 sunglasses I’ve thrown around that have lasted way longer. I also was slightly upset that their return policy couldn’t do anything about this, although maybe it’s changed now. I REALLY, REALLY wanted to love these, but they’re truly not very good quality :( maybe if you’re buying new ones all the time or they’re sold locally, but if you’re looking for good sunglasses that last, then go invest in another higher quality brand.
