The price is attractive. The quality is good for its price. I bought colour 22, blends with my skin perfectly. Light Coverage. Fair oil-control. But it does even out my complextion.
This mascara is great! It's long-lasting and doesn't smudge at all, even on a rainy day and I had no umbrella whatsoever. It lengthens and thickens my lashes, and hold curls. This mascara gives a natural look.
Liquid -Bourjois - Repulpant Reboosting Collagen Foundation

The foundation is pretty good, the colour I bought (Rose peau 62) blends into my skin perfectly. It's not dry and smells good (The smell isn't strong, don't worry). Fair coverage. However, oil control is so-so. But I do have very oily skin. In gerenal, it's a pretty good foundation. I wish it's in a better-looking bottle.
Fragrances -The Body Shop - Cassis Rose ] [DISCONTINUED]

Wow! This Cassis Rose scent is really good. The smell is romantic and nice. Even though it's a floral scent, it's not too strong for the summer. I will definitely buy it again.
It is easy to apply and the two colours are beautiful, as mentioned in the pervious post. I bought it with 20% off. It's a shame that the company discontinues it!
I have been looking for a rose fragrance. I had tried Crabtree & Evelyn's Rosewater Eau Fraiche, Durance's Rose EDT, The Body Shop's Tea Rose perfume oil, but they are just not ok. I just fell in love with it when I first smell it. It's different from other rose fragances. It's fresh, subtle and elegant. And the bottle is really beautiful.
It's my every day fragrance. It's so natural that people think that you simply "smell good" but don't notice it's a artifical fragrance.
The scent is sweet and romantic. I like it so much that I even bought a box set along with a bottle of body lotion. It smells sort of weird on those paper testers. It's the sort of fragrance smells better when it's sprayed on skin.
The sales gave me this Euphoria miniture when I bought the Eternity Moment box set. I tested it on a little piece of paper and... it's way too strong. But the base note is suductive though... I think they better make an Eau de Toilette version or improve the scent by making it lighter so it would be easier to accept. There is no way I can wear it because it just does not suit me. The bottle is elegant though, so it is now put on my desk as a display.
I really love this loose powder! It's smooth and I don't feel my pores are blocked by the powder at all. The powder evens my face colour and it does not make my face looks like a mask. But the teenage packing really puts me down...
Palettes -The Body Shop - Eye and Cheek palette 01Brown

Oh, this palette is fab! The shimmery brown colour is really intense, and the golden gray and golden colours are so sexy. Though I will not use the golden pink as blush (if only you want your face to be sparkling), I use it as eyeshadow too. This pink doesn't make my eyes look puffy. Now I really want to buy the green palette too!
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I've got the samples of C2 and W5. I think the cold colours are more like... natural (comparatively), but the warm colours are horrible! They are so orangy as though some sort of scary fake tans. No normal human skin has such colour. The texture is too sticky and cakey. I would never buy it.
It actually think it is pretty good. I bought colour #42, a very natural colour but brights up my face. Though it's a bit dry, it's ok with a bit of lip balm before applying the lipstick.
Lipstick -Revlon - Moisturous Lipcolor in Naked Splash
Vittoriak 2/2/2006 6:47:00 AM
It's one of the worst lipsticks I've ever used! The colour is good but not really natural on me. It's not "moisturious" at all! I was thinking to buy either this Moisturous Lipcolor or Glam Shine by L'oreal at the drugstore. Now I really regret I did not pick Glam Shine...
I just love their blush! This colour is natural and beautiful with very tiny tiny touch of shimmer. And I really like this dome-shape blush, which makes the application easier. And the price is super reasonable! I would definitely buy it again.
