I actually really love this. I found mine very creamy and easy to blend, it did not dry my skin up in the slightest bit. I found that it covered imperfections pretty well, although I was not so big on it for under eyes circles. Like the mineral foundation the concealers main problem is the lack of colour range. I am quite fair skinned and got the light/medium duo. Light is too light, Medium is too dark. I think that if the Sheer Cover team sat down and worked out a larger, more extensive range of colours for there products, I would be a lot more interested.

I hate proactive, so I was shocked when I really started to love Sheer Cover! It's a really, really nice mineral foundation. It covers skin well and doesn't make me break out. There are only a few cons to the Sheer Cover mineral foundations which is that they can look very cakey, and it is a very limited range of colours - most are either too yellow or too white for my skin. All around a nice foundation.
I bought this with Cover Girl Lashblast and when I saw them held together, the packaging was an exact dupe minus the colours. When I help up the brushes, again an exact dupe. I was quite disappointed in the Lashblast so I was not very excited to try this, but this mascara is definitely not the same. It lengthens a lot more and doesn't clump anywhere near as much. I think the major difference between this mascara was that this formula is a lot drier then that of the Lashblast, in a good way. It took me a while to really appreciate this mascara, but I love it!
I hate this. I so don't understand the hype. It clumps regardless of how well you apply, and it's volumising and lengthening properties aren't that good anyway. I think the main problem with this product is that its too wet. It needs to oxygenate and dry out a bit. I think I'd rather stick with my Maybelline colossal.
I love these nail polishes! I have a couple of different colours, my favourites are Plum Attraction and Cherry Crush. I just love them, they go on really easy, dry quickly all while looking amazing. I love them and think there great.
I love this! Perfect bright pink on my lips, without being too much. It look great and is very moisturizing on my lips. It doesn't dry and feels really good. I love it.
EDIT: So my review on this was pretty out of line. I actually love this. It's cleared my skin up so much! I don't have any side effects. Only problem is the price.
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte lipstick in Mauve It Over

One of my favourite lipsticks ever. It's the perfect nude for me, and I only like wearing matte lip products, so this is just brilliant. Would recommend this to anyone that listens.
YUCK! I think I got a bad batch, because mine was FOUL. I got heaps of different colours from a family member who actually works at Maybelline, so I find it hard to believe that all of the colours I was sent were bad, but who knows. The problem? The gloss is extremely sticky. I'm not even over exaggerating, it sticks my lips together and to separate them actually hurts. Then after I put the chap stick thing on, all of it groups up into gunk in the middle of my lips. Its horrible and I hate it. Waste of money.

I usually hate lip gloss, I hate having shiny lips. My lips are quite large and with any kind of gloss/shimmer on them normally makes them look really swollen. However, I love this product. I love the colour, its not clear but its not so coloured, its perfectly pigmented and its not too glossy and shiny. Its perfect and I love the taste! Haha, its an added bonus, but I hate it when I find a lip product that I love the colour/texture etc but it tastes horrible. This is a great lip gloss even for people who hate gloss, and worth giving a try.

I have to disagree with all the negative comments on this product. I really like it and started instantly seeing results. I had high hopes of this making me look more awake after a bad nights sleep and i feel it lived up to my expectations. For me, this woke up my eyes and made me look more refreshed.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - cocoa butter body gloss

I really like all the Palmer's products, so when I got a tube of this as a sample I was quite excited. I tried it and it felt really nice but i didn't see the shimmer. I must admit I was quite disappointed, but when I went outside into natural light, they were much more visible in a natural way. I think that this gives skin a very realistic and natural glow, it doesn't look like you accidentally spilt glitter all over yourself. I think its a nice formula, and quite a good product for your money.
I really love this makeup. It always looks good, and can be a very light coverage or built up for a more fuller coverage. I was sent heaps of these from my aunt who works at L'oreal and the colour range she sent me was so extensive. I really like the way it dries on the skin and is very easy and quick to apply. All round a very decent foundation for the price.
Good old Vaseline, what can this not be used for? Its great for chapped lips, dry skin and many other little jobs. It's great if you rub some on your skin, then apply your perfume. It gives the perfume excellent staying power. I love this, nothing else I can really say.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Signature Lipstick - Apricot Sun

I love this! It felt so rich and creamy on the lips, it has long staying power and is not drying for me at all. I love the colour and the pigmentation is perfect ---- not too sheer, not too heavy. Really, really pretty lipstick, with a beautiful formula. Love it!
