Review for: Dr. Jart+ Blackhead Master Patch 1 x Single Use 2-Step Patches more...
I bought this on a whim while browsing Sephora one day. I use the Biore brand pore strips a lot and thought the idea of that PLUS a serum to tighten pores was a great concept. Step 1 using the dry strip on wet skin worked pretty much the same as any other pore strip.. it gets the gunk out. Step 2 of the wet serum filled strip was very wet. So much so that I used the remaining serum in the package on my forehead, and chin where I also have bigger pores. So that was nice. But overall I didn’t notice too much of anything. My skin was soft and smooth, but that’s pretty much it. I didn’t see any visible difference in the size of my pores, or removing any more blackheads than usual. I probably won’t buy again but it was nice to try!
After seeing this all over Instagram I fell in love with it! I’m a highlighter junkie and this one was just too beautiful not to get! Not going to lie, the packaging alone was enough to make me buy it. Everything about it is just gorgeous! It’s not a blinding glow, but it’s a pretty glow for sure. The colour once applied is white-ish with some blue, pink and purple tones. If it were based on the colour itself I’d say it’s not a stand out at all because I have similar ones already, BUT I’m a sucker for the packaging! Glad to have this in my collection!

I swatched this beauty and it was love at first sight. The colours were stunning! But I noticed that the swatches had crumbled after a few minutes.. I figured it was because I swatched them on my bare arm and not with a shadow primer, so I bought it anyway. The first time I tried it out (I used NARS pro prime shadow primer) I was bummed at how powdery the shadows were, and they weren’t very pigmented. It swatches way better than it applied. You could barely see the colour! And I couldn’t get over how much fallout there was! It was all under my eyes, all over my cheeks, and even some on my nose and chin... crazy. The second time I used it, I applied it with a glitter primer hoping it would make the eyeshadow stick more. Nope. It worked exactly the same. I was so bummed. I wanted to love this but it’s just not up to par. For $62CAD these shadows should be AMAZING, but they’re not. Sadly, I returned it.
Okay, this is my new favourite ice cream. It’s super yummy! Chocolate alone is good, but add chocolate truffles.. OMG ITS SO GOOD! These truffles are super rich and delicious. They’re perfect in this ice cream.
I haven’t tried a Kate Somerville product I didn’t love! This is the best exfoliator I’ve ever used. It feels sooo nice on your face, you can feel it tingling while you’re waiting to wash it off. It smells great, feels great, and works great. It makes my skin feel soft, smooth, and super clean. It helps with blackheads, acne, and removing dead skin and all the gunk from your pores. I love it!
Review for: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick OG Lolita 0.12 oz/ 3.4 g more...
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I’m going to start off by saying that I LOVE Kat Von D Beauty! It’s one of my favourite brands, but this lipstick wasn’t my favourite. It’s creamy, pigmented, easy to apply and comes in sooo many gorgeous colours BUT it just doesn’t stay on. The wear on this is kind of awful. I had it on for not even 30 minutes and it was all worn off around my top lip. I had not eaten anything, or drank anything. I looked in the mirror and was shocked. I reapplied, same thing, about 20 minutes later when I checked again. The next time I wore it I applied lip liner with it, and still it did this. So disappointing. I wanted to love these, but they just don’t work well for me. I’ll stick to her amazing liquid lipsticks instead!!
I’ve been using this for about a month and a half, and haven’t seen any improvement in the redness in my cheeks. It’s super cheap so it’s not like I wasted much money on it, but disappointed it hasn’t helped.
I got this in a 500 point set from Sephora and it’s really nice. I like how it’s swirled white and black, so when you apply you can make it grey, or more prominently white, or more black. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and clean. I’ve also noticed it helps with blackheads.
