The reformulated EU version is HORRIBLE. It leaves an extreme white cast which doesnt dissapear. Even when I made sure that I applied it to the WHOLE face,it ended up lookin blotchy and uneven After less then 2 hours,makes my skin look even more blotchy,like the ss has dissapeared in places. It has a strong smell. Im not usually the one to care about fragrance in ss's but this smelly yuck. I think the worst thing about this ss is that I keep getting sunburnt,even tho I apply liberaly(im very anal about not getting sunburnt). I wear a wide brimmed,close knitted sunhat at ALL times,and I still got sunburnt.Now Im getting sunsports which I havent had before. GRR! Basically,the reformulated EU version that I bought in London is crap. I dont understand why they reformulated it?? The Australian and US versions are fantastic tho.
I have been using Shiseido SPF 36 Extra Smooth Cream for a while now.Im on my 2nd bottle. Its good stuff but i wanted something a bit cheaper,so i decided to try out some of Clinique ss's. All i have to say is THANK GOD i got a sample of this stuff. 1.Can you imagine putting a mask on when its hot,and u can feel your face sweating,getting itchy and irritated underneath? Thats how this ss felt when i put it on my face. My face didnt get red which is weird,but i just could NOT handle how itchy,stingly and sweaty my face felt. It was really oily on me too. 2.The tinted colour looked like a mask on me. Yeah im fairly white,but im not THAT white.It looked like a i had a really bad tan on,a muddy looking colour. NOT the look im after. 3.While i was applying it this stuff was balling up(rolling up?). The more i spread the worst it got. Even if this ss worked by me patting it on i wouldnt buy it coz of the other reason why this stuff is horrible Again,im so glad i tried a sample instead of bought the damn thing. Its a shame coz i liked the packaging and the price.

I really like this stuff :) i dont wear foundation,just sunscreen(lots of it) and blemish concealer here and there when i need it. It was really excited when i tried this in the shop. The palest shade looked perfect on me. it gave very light coverage,and just made me look...luminous :) it doesnt look cakey AT ALL on me.even on TOP of ss,which u would think it would look horrible(powder over creamy ss does sound too good) but this looked amaizing. really really happy with it. but yeah when u click the end of the brush heaps of product comes out,so what i do is just lightly click it,almost a half click rather than full press. sometimes i even press enough so heaps comes out,i just put in in a container and use it from there,that way i dont waste t it.it ws a bit pricy,but i really like it so it wasnt a waste of $$. Its just exciting to be able to wear powder. I NEVER EVER though powder would be for me(ive always worn liquid foundation when needed) but this stuff is fantastic. love love love it :) It looks fantastic even after hours at work,it never cakes or melts. YAAY :D I will repurchase.yes indeedy
hey hey! this stuff is not that bad. its very light but moisturising and leaves the eye area very smooth. I use this on my lids as a primer coz the base is so silky smooth :) it does keep the area light moisturised which is all i need atm. would i re-purchase? hmm MAYBE.if i do, it would be ebay only. coz im a cheap-ass :D and in my opinion there are only a handful of products that i LOVE and would pay full price for. and this is not one of those products even tho its not that bad.
*throws up* yeah...thats how this made me feel. it made me feel sick.literally. this is THE WORST perfume thing whatever that i have EVER smelt in my life. this is one of those...grandma smells. its suffocating.horribe,horrible stuff.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

alrighty. personally i like this. Its light,absorbs fast.doesnt break me out.doesnt clog my pores. leaves skin feeling moisturised.it doesnt smell funny. I have a sample size of this from GWP. Im not 100% sure yet that i would re-purchase,but even if i do,definatelly will get it off ebay. I dont think its worth paying the full price. yaay ebay! :P
I like this mascara. it got a small sample of it with GWP. I love how it makes my lashes thick and glossy. very happy with it and i will most likely re-purchase. I also love the colour of the tube. If you are unsure if you are gonna love or hate this mascara,the best thing to do is just buy it on ebay. that way even if u hate it,its ok coz u havent paid the full pricy price for it :) yaay ebay!
i pretty much feel the same way as the poster below me. I have used it once and will never use it again.i dont have a problem with things smelling nice but this stuff is just too strong.
I will definatelly buy this again. Even tho i preffer really full thick lashes,this mascara doesnt make them full and thick and fake looking,but instead it makes them really nice and clean looking. it defines every lash evenly and just makes them look really natural but with a bit of oomph. I love that this mascara doesnt clump at all. the brush is just beautiful and clean. I love dong my lower lashes with this. But since i like really thick lashes i always follow up with Maybelline Volume Express-Turbo Boost mascara which is just kick ass :)
This is a really really great ss. Unfortunatelly i dont think its meant for people with dry skin as it drys it out even more. I will definatelly try it out in summer which i think will work perfect. Im using the Shiseido Ultimate ss Cream SPF 55 atm and that is really really nice on my dry skin. I also tried the Shiseido Extra smooth ss Cream and that looked really nice on too and it felt moisturising.
this is my absolute favorite. First time i tried it i just felt so sexy.I feel like this perfum was made just for me. Whenever i wear it i ALWAYS get compliments. Yeah it could be cheaper but the price isnt too bad for how it makes me feel :)
This was very irritating on my sensitive skin. I've tried this a couple of times over the course of couple of years and each and every time it irritated my skin leaving it red and blotchy.
this is my first time here at MUA and i stumbled across this page abt NYX.i was reading abt the review for BEANIE eyeshadow and thought WOW i gotta get me some of that! i immediately looked to find the nearest place to buy it from,but then i realised that one of the "cheapo" shops in the city have it. i had a funny feeling abt this brand,so i went to look through my makeup case which has tons of eyeshadows ive never used,funnily enought i found NYX Green Tea. I was so excited to try it on and here i am sitting here wanting to let you ladies know how fantastic this colour is. i have hazely green eyes and this looks fantastic on all over the lid with a black eyeshadow in the corners.it creates a nice smokey evening look.im definatelly gonna be using this more often.i love it. im off to buy some more tomorrow :D
