I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It was my first time dyeing my hair with this and everything turned out great :) I originally had virgin black hair and used the 'light brown' shade so it will turn my hair into a dark brown. I had to use two boxes since my hair is fairly long. I also brought it on sale for $8 rather than $15 (non-sale) The colour distribution depends on how evenly you apply it, I like to start with the roots then all of the hair. The hair treatment conditioner with the dye did wonders for my hair! Made my hair silky, soft and less damaged than what it was originally >< Definitely reccommend!
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - Infallible Never Fail Powder

I LOVE THIS POWDER. I always use it after applying my bb cream and it gives me a soft, pressed and matte look. I'm not sure how much it costs, as it was given to me as a gift. The powder provides fairly good coverage. If you want a natural look, don't even apply bb cream/foundation, using 1-2 layers of this powder is all that you need! (If you have fairly clear skin) The packaging has a mirror and sponge however I personally don't like using the sponge as bacteria can build up there, so instead I use my own separate powder brush :)
This is one of my favourite mascaras if I want to achieve a an dramatic/formal look eg. parties, dinners etc. I love how the product makes my lashes appear more longer and volumized. However it won't allow you to achieve the exact look of actual false lashes. The only problem I find with this is the clumping of the product, sometimes when I take the wand out of the tube, there are mini clumps of mascara on the wand, I solve this by pressing it on some tissues to get rid of the clumps. I would still reccommend this mascara though!
I was looking forward to try this product, but I was disappointed with it. I was hoping to get a more flawless finish with the use of applying bb cream afterwards but I couldn't tell any difference made to my face besides the VERY subtle touch of glimmer/sparkling on my face. It looks very natural though, which is what I like. I felt that my bb cream on itself would last the same time as with the primer on. I will not re-purchase this again.
This is one of my favourite BB creams on the market. Fairly cheap, brought it on eBay for $12.50 with free shipping. I generally use this instead of foundation since it is less heavier on my face. The coverage is medium, being able to cover the red areas of my face. The consistency is fairly thick but when applied, a little goes a long way and I prefer using my fingers over my foundation brush. Since this bb cream contains spf and whitening properties, it will make your face appear very light when taking flash photos at night! The shade of this colour will suit people with medium to fair skin. I reccommend this bb cream for people wanting to try out their first bb cream!
