I adore NARS blushes, I own many and will buy them again and again. Quality is certainly not my issue. However, this colour did not work for me. I am very very pink based pale, with freckles. It looked muddy on me. It was quite disappointing, but I was able to gift to my friend who is Chinese, and it looks glowy and beautiful on her. I am reluctant to be critical of my beloved NARS blushes, but pale pinky types beware.
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

This smells amaaaaazing. It is the same scent as the pink lush bubbleroon. I resent moisturising all the time, so this is a wonderful way to smell beautiful and moisturise all at once. Once wet in the shower, I slather it on, stand out of the way of the water for a few minutes then rinse off. If you can, I would say not to get dressed immediately after this (I walk around in a dressing gown for awhile) as it can feel a bit like you still have product on the skin, but it sinks in and smells amazing afterwards. It is a beautiful rosey smell that isn't too sweet or overpowering. I will buy again for sure.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear - Mint Sorbet

This colour is gorgeous. It's the perfect mint that isn't too bright and not sheer. I cannot believe how opaque this is with even one coat. BUT the formula is horrible. The brush is also difficult to use and it's quite goopy and just annoying to work with. I tried to paint my nails with this twice and gave up. Hopefully one day when I have more patience I can try again, for now, it just annoys me that such a gorgeous colour needs such hard work to look any good.
I use this once a week as I use a heap of products in my hair. I absolutely love it. My hair and scalp feel so so clean afterwards. I bought this on sale, and I can't believe how cheap it is considering the amount. Still wish it came with a pump. I follow up with a silicone free conditioner, also from Tresemme. My hair still feels very soft and manageable after using it, but as others say, once a week is plenty for me.
I bought this in "tutu much" which appears to be an opaque light pink. The reason I bought it because I get tired of trying to create a light pink nail without doing 4 different layers. When I actually got them out of the packet, it was clear that the colour, once taken off the backing paper, was sheer. Disappointing! Nonetheless, these are mess free, my nails haven't chipped in the three days I've had them on, they're pretty easy to apply, and I think tutu much could be quite cute as a french manicure (if only I knew that you could apply it over the top of polish - which I don't believe you can. So I'm disappointed that the colour isn't what I expected. That said, if there were a pattern I liked, I think these are great. I don't really like patterned nails, but hopefully the plain colours can be improved. Also disappointed to pay $15 for the one manicure. Though this isn't expensive, I tried to make it last for 2 by cutting them, but the sizes of the nails were not very good for me, and I had only enough to do one. Given I was disappointed with the colour, this is $15 I would have put towards a real mani! Might buy again if I see a cute pattern and if it's on special. Don't buy Tutu Much without expecting it to be sheer! might be the same for the other plain colours.
I loved this product because it made my skin feel incredibly clean and smelt great. But I had a reaction to it, with little raised bumps coming up shortly after on either side of my mouth that took a week to clear. I love Lush products, but this one is too harsh for me. I have pretty sensitive skin, so I have since used Catastrophe Cosmetic and Cosmetic Warrior at the recommendation of Lush girls. These have both been great, and Love Lettuce was also recommended. This is just not for very sensitive skin, I believe because of the peppermint oils - it's a strong product. I did use it again on just my forehead and nose where I didn't have a reaction, but won't be buying this again, even though it's lovely. I love the packaging, mainly because of the 5 pots, get a free mask deal!
This product is great. I live in a very hot climate, and I find makeup just slips off, but this really does manage to keep it on just that little bit longer. I have noticed it works really well at keeping my blush on all day. I would say it can feel a bit greasy through my t-zone halfway through a day so I find you need to dab, but I found much less of a need to reapply! The smell is nice and clean, it goes on so lightly that you don't look like you just sprayed yourself, I will possibly buy again, though it's not an essential.
Tinted Moisturizer -Bobbi Brown - Tinted Moisturizer [REFORMULATED]

Wow. This is fantastic. I've tried so many tinted mouisturisers for my super pale skin and this is the only one that hasn't left me with an orangey tone (I use alabaster). It is very light, but has fantastic protection from the sun. I have sensitive skin and it hasn't made me break out. The packaging is non-fussy and simple. I will definitely be going back to this, it's my new favourite tinted mouisturiser for sure!
I really like everything about this product except for two little things. (1) I am so pale that this is a bit orange on me (but i really am very, very pale) and (2) the packaging is such that if the pump stops working it's very hard to get out. Once the pump on mine broke for about a week, it was very annoying! The good things are that it's a great texture, goes on at nice coverage and doesn't make me break out, and lasts quite a while. Am trying a few others before going back to this, but at the moment it is the best option I've found.
The best blush ever! Perfect for my skin, most beautiful colour, don't need much to get the right glow. 2 of my friends bought this the day after seeing it on me and continue to use it - it really is the most beautiful colour!

My favourite night time mouisturiser. This smells beautiful, feels beautiful and despite having really sensitive skin has never ever made me break out or clog pores. It actually really improves my skin tone overnight. The first time I used it I almost laughed in the mirror, the difference was noticable, even my mum noticed! I go back to it again and again. I don't think you need to use this with the overnight success skin renewal serum - it seemed to do the trick on it's own!

I love the idea of the illuminating tinted mouisturizer but this makes me break out, feels a bit chemically on and doesn't feel like it stays on longer. I prefer MD tinted mousturiser, though it doesn't have the pretty shimmer it's treated me very well!
