Ok, this review is just for the black, which is the only one I have. Perfect formula, just runny enough to apply itself, not to runny to be sheer. Completely opaque in one coat. Shiney, patent leather perfect nails. The glitters look good too, might get them next time.
I love this. I get about 4 uses from a bar, so its not stupidly expensive, but not dirt cheap either. I just chop it into quarters (I do the same for all my bubble bars) The scent is as they describe; like being in a green forest. Makes me feel so relaxed and clean and refreshed. Absolutely my favourite bubble bar. Unfortunately, last time I went to get some they only had 3 bars left and the SA said they were being discontinued. NOOO whyyyyyyy??? I bought all 3 :)
I have these in Punch and Coral Pink and they are amongst my faves. Punch is a bright pin up girl/barbie pink and coral pink is a soft slightly orange pink. They seem very pigmented and give the appearance of "my lips are naturally this colour" + some shiny lip balm. The tube is bright red metal. Cute. Looks more expensive than it is. Soooooo cheap :) Very moisturising. And apparently they have spf. Colour range is a bit limited. The red is the only other one slightly tempting me....
This is my second bottle. I originally started with dermalogica last year for my wedding, before that it was just d/s stuff. This stuff is expensive, but it lasts forever! As I said, this is my second bottle in almost a year now. And the bottle is still about 3/4 full (I did take about a month off to try my ds stuff again, but hated it and went crawling back) It helps keep my sensitive skin from going red, removes all traces of eye make-up and is super easy to rinse off.

This is the only thing that stops my super dry skin feeling tight and itchy. And I've tried a lot of things. It feels a little bit greasy though, which I don't like on hot days, so I prefer to wear it at night. The packaging I find can be a bit annoying to get the stuff out of, especially when it gets under half way full, as you can't store it upside down (although I believe they've made a new package which you can.....perhaps will edit this one day...)
Very cheap, very pigmented, finely milled, soft....whats not to love? The colour is the perfect natural looking flush on my cheeks. It lasts all day. My only complaint is that the packaging is a bit too small. It'll probably run out pretty fast. But since pretty well everywhere sells rimmel and its very cheap, I won't have a problem repurchasing.

This is great! I got it for $5AUD for the green brown and black packet. I use them on my upper lashline and they last all day without smudging. I don't use them in the waterline, because of the glitter, I imagine it would not be good. The black is not a very dark black w/ silver glitter, which is good for everyday, the brown in a slightly warm dark-medium brown w/ gold glitter and the green is a light jade green w/silver glitter. The glitter is perfect for everyday, just makes your eyes appear a bit brighter without being OTT. Love :)

Pretty colour, very very sheer. Seems to be little micro speckles of purple in clear polish. I use it to add dimension to other colours.
I'm on my third bar of this, so I think I am qualified to review it :D I love it. It smells gorgeous. Doesn't strip my dry skin of its natural oils. My DH loves it also. When I buy it I get them to pull off that dark honeycomb part. I dont like it because it doesn't dissolve like soap should, and it feels hard and waxy against my skin. If I get them to remove it before weighing I don't have to pay for bits I don't use. yey :)
Eye Shadow -NYX - 10 Color Palette - Champagne & Caviar

This got me into doing neutral eyes. I love it. It blends so easy with the Nyx B12 brush I got at the same time. Its nicely pigmented, and not overly shimmery.
I really like this. It is easy to remove, yet doesn't smudge. It makes my lashes majorly long as well. My DH said something like "wow, your lashes are like the super lashes" which is always a plus. The only down is that if you use too much it looks bad. You can only use a certain amount and no more, so you can't keep building length.
This stays on like nothing I have ever tried before. And it is so creamy and easy to apply. Its sort of glides on creamy, so it doesn't tug and you can smudge it out for a smokey look, but then it seems to set and does not budge. Proof? I lined my entire eye, waterline and tightlining, all the way in to the inner corner. The I cried for half an hour, forgot I was wearing it and had a shower, then looked in the mirror and realised I still had perfect eyeliner. Impressive huh?
Before I discovered this product my shadow used to crease or disappear by the end of the day. Since using this my shadow remains perfect all day. It also evens out the colour on my lid and up to my brow which is nice. I apply it using the ecotools shadow brush which is nice and firm and it blends out perfectly.
Love this! Sexy, yet suitable for everyday. It makes my lips look poutier. My lips are naturally fairly pigmented and it really works well with the colour. I find it creamy and easy to apply. I put lipbalm on while doing my make-up and just wipe off the excess before applying this lippy and my lips don't dry out at all from it, which is nice.
Firstly I will go with the pros. It smells nice. Wierd...but nice. As someone described, its like plastic dolls heads. Also, it made my hair really soft once dry. The cons though; it is useless for detangling my hair. For some reason it is hard to get out of the bottle (I got the small size one) I don't know if its too thick or what. Lastly, it irritated my scalp BAD. It made me really itchy and I got little sores. Getting better now I have stopped using it though. I didn't take a lippie off for that as since I don't see other people mentioning it, its probably my bodies reaction not the products fault. So not really for me.
