Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - Metal Eye Lash Comb

I seriously cannot find an affordable dupe for this let alone an expensive dupe. I don't like the brush that normally comes with typical plastic lash combs so just the metal comb was great. I like the practical design but I hate cleaning it. I don't find it one of those HG "I'LL-DIE-WITHOUT-IT' products but it's very handy to have on use.
This stuff is not supposed to be the number one quick fix, but it really does work over 2 or 3 nights. It works very well on erupted pimples although it doesn't dry as fast as I want it too, it doesn't dry out the applied area.
A great jelly polish! It needs at least 3 coats for maximum opacity and you must apply evenly because it can get streaky. It wears very well .. I'm impressed! I love this colour so much! I don't like the brush or the packaging and the formula is a little too thin for my liking, I hope OPI comes out with an exact dupe because I've fallen in love.

I don't think this is great at packing on colour. However it is a very versatile brush none the less because of its unique cut. It's great for sweeping on a neutral colour as a base/highlighter, putting on a sheer wash of colour or use to blend out harsh lines. Be careful, while it may look pretty on your vanity it might not fit your eye shape so test it out in the store if it's right for you. The quality of this brush .. WOO! The tightly packed bristles do not shed a bit! This retails at $55 at David Jones in Australia. On another note though, I think Burberry Beauty does not get enough love as it should but on the other hand, I kind of appreciate the fact that it isn't as accessible as other designer beauty brands because it's my little beauty secret ;)
Wow .. I used the sample only and I bought the full sized and I am contemplating if I should pawn this off as a Christmas gift or what not. It does not suit my complexion at all and I think it is NOT universally flattering. I think it only suits fair complexions as it is to 'mauvey pink' for tan complexions. I wish it was more sheer and less sparkly. I don't like the finish of this and I am sooo over Coco Shines.
I just wanted a sheer comfortable gloss and Burberry delivers, sure it has minimum to almost no pigment but the lasting power was certainly a surprise.
This is the motherload of all floral perfumes. It is waaaay too girly, not feminine or womanly. It's not tacky but it just almost crosses the line into smelly like cheap candy. It's too sweet for my liking because personally I'm not girly.
This is an edgy perfume, it's neither FULL floral or too oriental. On my skin it smells slightly exotic with a tad bit of spice. Not for me!
I think this is very understated and doesn't recieve a lot of attention. It's not for the old and it's more sophisticated for the YG's (young girls). This is of course initally floral but it's a sexy floral, a tad musky and most importantly does not scream sweet sugar cane cheap mist. It does not wear well in the summer, it's more of an A/W evening scent. I wouldn't wear this in my 40's though.
This prevents staining, it lasts a hell of a long time and I love the pink tinge. It dries incredibly fast and the colour adheres lovely. my god hg for sure
It's a very pink nude. Not sheer enough for a frenchie but great with only 1 coat. It's a very petite and girly colour and would great on ALL skin tones. It isn't streaky like most sheer pink polishes so it's great with the one coat. The drying time is a little pathetic, dries slower than usual.
Looks great in the bottle but be careful what you put it on top of. Only apply one coat, not too thin, not too 'opaque'. If you apply it too thick it won't shatter. I used it with the now discontinued 'Do You Think I'm Tex-y?' and it created a very 80's pop neon look.
When applied the shimmer shines through and is very visible when it dried with the top coat .. I was disappointed .. Certainly a very frosty dirty dark navy petrol colour with micro shimmer. Very campy especially with long nails and a great shade for winter. The formula is a little thicker than usual and is not streaky.
I'm contemplating whether I should repurchase this or not when I run out or try Clinique's brush cleanser instead which is more expensive but it has better packaging. I don't like the opening because it doesn't disperse the amount I want. It doesn't remove all of the product out of my foundation brushes regardless of what I use to soak and rub the brushes on (e.g. tea towel, chux wipes, kitchen paper towels, tissues, cotton pad).
The rubbery packaging gets dirty, kind of reminds me of NARS matte packaging. It's more orangey than bronze, especially on my skin tone (medium with a tan/yellow undertone - #50 Naturel in Chanel). It's very shimmery and I prefer more of a matte bronzer. The finish is very chalky and does not look natural unless you use it sparingly.
