I think I will forever be purchasing this product. It's just really good. It's thick and creamy in consistency and smells delicious. Only gripe is I have to squeeze like buggery to get any of it out, even if my bottle is full. Would much prefer a pump. But all in all, fave cheap moisturiser for sure.

This foundation tends to look caked up on me. However thinning it out with moisturiser helps a little. At first, application is smooth and easy, however after a few seconds it seems to 'set' and becomes harder to blend, kinda like a sunscreen consistency. Bleh, do not want. In saying that, the coverage is really good, and it does stay on all day but it kind of just sits on your face. I would really recomend a good moisturiser or primer with this foundation. The thing I really lovvvvvve about this foundation is that is has a pump. LOOOVE the pump. I probably won't be repurchasing as I think I can find/buy a better foundation for the price. Also, I don't tend to stick to the one foundation, I like to test out the competition.
I just bought this from Myer during their christmas sale, mega cheap at AU$9 or similar. It gives a really nice glowy warmth to the face, whilst looking very natural. The packaging is simple and does the job, I don't see the need for more extravagant packaging, especially for the price. I wouldn't really compare this to NARS orgasm as in my opinion its more peachy and not as shimmery. Still a very pretty blush though. Quite underrated. Two thumbs up from me.

Such a great and inexpensive little tool to have. Very soft and easy to control, while giving a great base with foundation. $10 at Priceline, so simple and worthwhile. 10/10 for me.
I become in a sort of predicament with this fragance. I'm the type of girl who gets sick of perfumes a lot quicker than I can use them. That is my only fear and doubt for this fragance. I really don't want to get sick of it because it is just so beautiful and fresh. I always get complimented on it, from people of all ages. It's a little bit pricey (in Aus anyway) but perfumes last myself a long time, so in my opinion it's worth it. I suggest you test it out for yourself, as not everyone will like it. But if you're after a little pick me up, this is great.
