Mascara -Maybelline - Pulse Perfection Waterproof [DISCONTINUED]
samsungasong 10/10/2012 8:23:00 AM
I wasn't happy with this mascara, no building power & really didn't do much. The pulse vibrator does nothing. A very average product which I won't be repurchasing. I'll be sticking to Jordana best lash extreme.
I purchased this palette today & within hours of application 2 people commented on my eyeshadow. The colours are beautiful - I have The original Palette. It comes with 12 colours which are beautiful, (makes me want to eat them). They are very pigmented & creamy & don't set in my crease line even though I didn't use primer. The only negative is how hard the palette is to open, I'm not sure if it's just my palette or whether they're all like this. I will definitely repurchase & can't wait to try the other palettes in other colours. I definitely recommend purchasing this palette, $12.50 AU for 12 glorious colours, you can't go wrong
This product is terrible. Not only does It peel off within hours, the shine is just average. The only positive is how fast drying it is. For the price, I'm extremely disappointed. If it sold for a much cheaper price I still wouldn't purchase it. Don't waste your money, other cheaper brands do a much better job.
I purchased 20 Beige. Although the packaging is ok, the range of colours is just too limiting. When applying to my skin, it appears an unusual colour yet once application is complete using a foundation brush, it blends in well & the colour looks more natural. It's a tad shiny for me yet better than a lot of other foundations I've tried. It's average in quality yet for the cost I can't complain. I would only purchase again if I had run out of foundation & couldn't afford a better one or if I had limited access to others.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

This is the best mascara I've ever purchased & especially in relation to the price. I used to swear by Lancome mascara yet this has taken its place. I will use from now on. It doesn't become clumpy or make my lashes stick together upon application & has excellent build up power. Will definitely purchase over & over, in fact I'm purchasing all of my girlfriends one as a present. Very pleased.
I have voluptulash in this brand. I've always been a Lancome fan with regard to eye makeup & due to expense I began trying other cheaper brands such as Maybelline, L'Oreal etc... I was given this mascara as a present and was nicely surprised. It builds my lashes up well as it adds fibres to my lashes. I have on occasions noticed the fibers drop to my cheeks & when removing, I thought my lashes were coming off. I now realize it's not my lashes, its the fibers. When applying, my lashes become clumpy yet this is easily fixed by using a lash & brow groomer to comb my lashes immediately after application. This eliminates the clumpiness, thins the fibers down & prevents the fibers from falling on my cheeks. I find it has great staying power & lasts for many hours. From my experience with mascaras, this would be on par with Lancome. For a cheap mascara, I would definitely repurchase. Edit: After trialling Jordana & comparing it to this product, I will not repurchase.
This blush has a powdery dusty pink appearance. The texture is creamy & easy to apply. Unfortunately this colour is not ideal for me yet would be perfect for someone with a fairer, smoother & cooler complexion. It doesn't have the staying power & is gone within a couple of hours. I have only recently purchased this product & am not familiar with cream blushes so in all fairness I'll experiment & update a little later. I see no logic in purchasing another blush to go on top yet I'll attempt applying with a brush. The packaging is nice yet doesn't equate to it's quality. At this stage, I wouldn't repurchase or recommend.
I've never really found an eyeliner I've loved yet this is the closest yet. Either the colour isn't right, it doesn't stay on, it smudges or is just plain hard to apply. As I've become older I find the colours I used wear are too dark for me. I purchased the brownish/black in this brand which gives me a softer more natural look. It has eyeliner one end & a sponge applicator the other which helps with blending making the look even more natural. The cost is reasonable & until I find something better, I will continue to purchase this one. Edit - After purchasing the Urban Decay Grind House sharpener, this eyeliner is even better. After applying my liner to the lower lashes & blending it with the sponge applicator, I then use the applicator to add a little colour to my eyebrows. I'm happy with this product & want to try other colours.
This feels absolutely fabulous on my skin. It's as if I have a layer of velvet on top of my face. Although I love the product & how it feels, I'm not sure I can warrant the cost. Very nice product though.
I first purchased this mask because I developed a pretty bad sensitivity particularly around my eyes. My skin was awfully itchy & I tried many types of products for sensitive skin yet none were suitable except this one. I love this product, it is very gentle yet very hydrating. I would definitely purchase this again especially when my skin is sensitive.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Oil-Free Cream Cleanser

Very happy with this purchase. I determine whether I like a cleanser by how I feel immediately after use, if my skin feels tight then the cleanser is too dry. This cleanser feels great on my skin & isn't drying. It will be interesting to see how this product feels during summer yet it's perfect for the winter months. During application I experienced what I thought was a stinging sensation & couldn't work out whether it was stinging or tingling as at times my skin can be a little sensitive. It ended up being a tingling refreshing menthol feel which I have grown to love. For the price & size it certainly is good value. I will definitely purchase this product again.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15
samsungasong 8/17/2012 7:02:00 AM
I tried The Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser & was nicely surprised so I was keen to try one of their moisturizers. I have used this product twice & I like the pump action container, the way it feels when I first apply it & the small amount needed yet it became very greasy on my skin throughout the whole day. It confuses me as it's oil free. I'm disappointed & won't purchase this product again.
