Eye Shadow -Kiko Cosmetics - Highly Pigmented Eye Shadow

I got to pick up some of Kiko's eyeshadows when I was in Italy. I was so excited to try them out. I got number 233 and 234, both cool brown tones for autumn. They're fairly decent pigmented and apply nicely. The packaging is a bit of a miss though. The lid is made out of a "milky" plastic, which makes it quite hard to figure out the colour when just looking at it (when closed). Definitely going to get some more next time though. EDIT: Worst eye shadows ever made! The colour does NOT stay on what so ever, fades very very easily. And it's quite a pain in the butt to apply as it's not easy to blend well. Thankfully I only own 2 shades. Such a no-no.
It's an alright lipgloss. It's not way too sticky, however if you apply it with the wand it comes with you end up having a ton of stickyness on your lips. I prefer the normal applicators. I only have the shade "my favourite milkshake", it's barely pigmented. The smell is quite fruity/cherry-ish, which I don't mind.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Lucas' Papaw Ointment

I only just got my hands on this product and I absolutely adore it already. It's very moisturising and stays on my lips for quite a long time. The product also smells heavenly in my opinion (kinda like vanilla pudding). I would prefer if the product came in a "normal" lip balm tube though, not a squeezy one. That way I wouldn't have to use hand sanitizer before I put it on my lips.
This foundation is waay too thick to apply nicely on your face. It's quite hard to blend and leaves my face looking bloutchy. It also has such a powdery finish, didn't really like this product and its finish.
First I really enjoyed this product. But after a while I noticed that it left my skin looking very uneven/blouchty and flakey at some parts. I found it quite hard to blend in nicely with my stippling brush. The coulor selection wasn't too good either, unfortunately. Overall not very impressed with this foundation.
I only just recently bought this product on ebay, because I can't get it in the country I live in. I read that it smells very chemical, but mine has an extrem perfumy scent. And it's not thick at all, if I apply it to my face it runs down my cheeks. Did they change the formula or did I get a knock-off`?
Pro's Stays put all day long Really black Great, not too wet formula Seperates and lengthens lashes quite a bit Wand is tapered, so you can use it on your bottom lashes too Con's Doesn't give too much volume, unfortunately Brush is quite big
First off, can I just point out how amaaazing the honey scented one smells? It's simply divine. The product itself is alright, I'd say. Didn't do way too much for my lips, but I still enjoyed using it. It has a very waxy texture, unlike most lip balms, which makes it last long (had mine for almost a year). What I really liked about it was that it didn't leave this extremely glossy film on my lips.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creamsicle

This has so many bad reviews, so I was quite prejudiced when this product arrived in the mail. Honestly, it's not amazing, but it's an alright product. The shade is somewhat of light, but to me that's no big deal, because the colour is buildable. If you have very cracked lips, you might want to use a lip scrub before or cover your lips in ointment for a few minutes. However it's very moisturising and smells quite nice. Has no shimmer, but a nice glossy finish. What really gets me though, is that you get sooo little product for the price you pay, it's insane, really. But that goes for all the lip butters.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

At first when I tried this product it didn't work out well, it creased quite a bit. But after using it a few times I noticed that it works fine if you use only a teeny tiny little bit. Depending on the eye shadow it still creases a little bit. But it's fine, it's an overall okay product.
All time favourite, and I've tried quite a few scents. This is somewhat of classy, yet not a heavy (grandma) scent at all. It's fresh, but not deodorant-fresh-like. It's elegant and timeless. Smells a bit woody and floraly. Such a classic, I love it so much!
I absolutely adore this smell. I normally don't go for really sweet scents. This is the exception. It has a... sugary, warm, sweet scent and reminds me of a warm summer evening (how cheesy). On me personally it stays on for quite a while, especially when I put it on my wrists. And on a side note: It smells nothing like oranges.

This product broke me out like nothing. The smell it lovely, really refreshing. After using it a few times, I noticed two weird bumps on my cheek and the skin around my eye area got a bit irritated. I stopped using it for maybe a month and a half. Then I picked it up again, because I really wanted to like it. And the exact same thing happened again, same cheek, same weird bumps. Such a shame, I was fairly excited about this product.
I love this mask for especially one reason: The smell! It smells so insanely delicious. I have combination/oily skin, this is supposed to be for normal/dry skin. Not sure if it did heaps for my skin, personally. But just putting it on my face is glorious. I'd still recommend it!
I use eyeliner every single day, and I tried quite a few. This one is by far my favourite. It stays on all day, really all day long. It doesn't smudge or crack or change colour. Thanks to the feltip it's really easy to use and lets you create thin or thicker lines. I'm really impressed with this product and recommend it to just everyone.
