Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - C is for Clean Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

I've been through about 6 tubes of this - really love it! I use it in the shower every second day. Really nice and full of exfoliating particles. Helps remove dead skin cells and prevent acne. Smells nice too. Leaves skin feeling so smooth and a bit moisturised. Highly recommend!
Treatments (Eye) -Yes To Carrots - Eye Can C Clearly Now Eye Contour Cream

Huge tub of product. Not really that great for me - seems a little oily and doesn't really soak in. Ok for night time I guess? Wouldn't repurchase.
Moisturizers -Yes To Carrots - C Through the Night Night Moisturizing Cream

This is a good average quality night cream. Smells nice, moisturises ok. The main thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't fully soak into my skin, and doesn't make my skin feel really moisturised. I much prefer Natio (Australian brand) Ageless night cream. Which I was suprised to see no one has rated on here (must be a well kept secret because it's always sold out at my local Priceline). Just ok for me.
Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Cleansing Gel

This is a nice gentle cleanser. Smells really beautiful, and not much impresses me scent wise. It doesn't remove all eye make up (I use Lush Ultra Bland for that) but it's fine for foundation etc. A good general cleanser for sensitive skin.
I use this as an eye make up remover. It is so fabulous!!! The tiniest bit removes any eye make up I wear and it's so gentle. Smells and feels great. Highly recommend!!
This is my favourite everyday neutral crease colour. I wear this over Edie. It gives a really gorgeous light, natural looking contour to the eye. It does have glitter in it, but it's not tacky looking. It's also nice as a lid colour to blend with lola lola or a darker crease colour. Super pretty!!
Amazing eyeliner... I didn't have any trouble with the little brush that comes with it. I actually really like it. Creates a nice fine line, or a thicker one if you prefer by going over the line again. Honestly this one bottle will last me the rest of my life!! Doesn't budge once dried. Highly recommend for black liquid liner.

This is just a beautiful, beautiful color!!! Super pretty. Fantastic if you are wearing a dramatic or dark eye as this is fairly neutral. My fav gloss for a night out.
Primer/ Corrector -Natio - GLOW Skin Brightening Face Balm
epaton 1/8/2011 9:03:00 PM
I thought I'd try this out because I generally love Natio and read all the good reviews about this... It really didn't work for me. I've got combo skin with and oily T zone and the whole glow thing just made my entire face look oily (or sweaty). Not a good look for me...
Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia Stick Foundation

I bought this after reading some reviews on the aussie vogue forum and I'm impressed. I'm so glad I didn't go out and spend more on something expensive! I was looking for something to give me more coverage after using mineral make up for years and this is great stuff. Quite incredible for the price (about $10). There were about 3-4 colour choices but luckily one was perfect for me. Gives nice medium coverage using fingers to blend. Good staying power. I got mine from Kmart.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - 6 Piece Eye Brush Set (5 brushes + case)

I bought this set to use with my UD Naked pallet and it's really great. Super soft bristles, no bristle loss (yet), nice light bamboo handles. They are a bit pricey in Australia - that's my only complaint! Highly recommend.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush
epaton 1/8/2011 8:51:00 PM
A great great brush. I broke off the end of the handle because I'm blind without my glasses and I needed to be closer to the mirror to see what I'm doing. I use this everyday to put shadow over my eyeliner and smudge it out. Fabulous!!! Every brush I've bought from Ecotools has been great quality.
Yep...read about all the hype, saw the pallet and then had to have it. Totally lived up to my expectations even though I paid way too much for it on ebay :) The most beautiful colors I've seen in a nude pallet, excellent pigmentation, staying power and no creasing. Super in love with this!!!!! I'm really loving the 24/7 eyeliner also - but definitely not for the waterline on me. The only thing I could possible want with this is a lighter highlighter colour (I'd say I'm fair/med and it's summer here in Australia) and the lightest shade just doesn't cut it for me. But I'll forgive them. If you are immediately in love with the colors you won't regret this purchase.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleaner
epaton 1/8/2011 8:40:00 PM
I've had major acne issues for years. Been through all the drug store and prescription treatments, and then was put on Roaccutane. I've used this for years. Has been the one cleanser that has helped my skin to some degree. Proactive was a complete failure for me but this does help (even though they both have the same active ingredient). I now use this every now and then as a face & body wash when I have a break out, and I also use it as a spot treatment. It really does help to stop infection and dry up zits when used like this. I have sensitive skin so it can be irritating if I leave it on too long when used as a wash, or around my nose area. I just make sure to use it quickly and rinse it off well.
My absolute favorite base eyeshadow colour!!! I have darkness around my eyes and Edie is fantastic to even out and cover some of the darkness without being too shimmery. Great staying power. I wear it everyday and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great base shade. It's just slightly lighter than my skin tone. Highly recommend. Wish it was more available in Australia.
