I use the duo in the 'tan' complexion... I think that's what it's called, usually I use both colours together! It's great coverage for a small freckle on my cheek I don't like , and a small pink scar on my cheek, also covers a few small sun damaged lines on my nose but for coverage under my eyes...... HORRIBLE! It kind of sinks in and makes under my eyes look scaly... Really strange considering it's great for everything else.... So sometimes when I decide to use it under my eyes I mix both colours and lightly pat a tiny bit under my eyes with my finger, then apply my sheer cover mineral powder over it. Works well :)
This perfume is lovely ;-) I actually smelt it from a tester in the shop and didn't like it... Then one of my friends smelt really really nice I couldn't get the smell out of my head I actually went home and had a bit of the scent on me lol! Well anyway once it's on you and I guess 'settles' to your skin it smells sooo beautiful, the smell is classy, strong, long lasting! I actually went and bought one for myself then my mom smelt it on me and what do I find she has bought the following day? The same perfume :) But yes really great perfume, my reccomendation is if your interested in buying/smelling it, spray it on yourself not on the little tester papers. It's quite pricey but it's so worth it! 2 sprays (one of my neck, one on my wrist) and its lasts ALL day! Money well spent!
Shampoo -John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Moisturizing Shampoo

I had light brown hair with a few highlights which you barely even noticed. I also had very oily hair! Tried this shampoo + conditioner and it's amazing, I looked as if I just had blonde highlights put through my hair! Every single time I would get the same result, it's amazing! Oh and it leaves your hair soooooo silky, bouncy and soft :-) since using this my hair can go 3-4 days without being washed.

Hey everyone, was reading through a couple reviews and noticed sayings that it's "cakey" thick ect~ ok well for starters I love natural looking makeup, and it's so great when you find a make up that looks like your wearing nothing BUT gives you an airbrush look.... I am sure it's all about how you apply it. When I first started using it my skin did started getting quite oily maybe 20mins after I applied it so I wasn't too happy... Just recently I did a little experiment and put the tiniest(and I mean really tiny like hardly anything) on my brush and applied it to my whole face just using a circular motion... That small amount I applied covered my whole face, gave me a natural looking finish, and my skin did not go oily! On very hot days when it does go oily I don't wipe the makeup, or re-apply some more makeup, I just take the brush and go over my face in the circular motion(no makeup on the brush) and its looks great all over again :-) please give it a go, and do write another review if my tip helped :)

This is the only perfume I will wear! I'm in love with this smell... Very simillar to Viva La juicy which I used before this, but I find this one so gorgeous... It's last all day too!
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle
BiancaGabriella 6/20/2012 9:07:00 AM
Smooth and moisturizing, easy to apply :-) It's a browny pinkish colour.... Not my favourite, it's a bit too dark and for my liking, doesn't suit my complexion, I actually think this colour would look nicer if my natural lips were a light pink... But yes, not one of my favourite at all.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
BiancaGabriella 6/20/2012 8:58:00 AM
This is the best Revlon Colourburst lip butter! This colour was 100% perfect for me because it's basically the same colour as my natural lips, and when applied, it adds more of a brightness and a wow look to my lips! Very smooth to apply. I have dry lips, and this moisturizers them ALOT! This is definitely one of my all time favorites... And I'm usually a MAC lover ;-) (just a tip)~ when ever trying a new lipstick,gloss,lip butter ect, always make sure the colour isnt too far away in shade of your natural lips...
Lip Gloss -Napoleon Perdis - NP Set - Lip Gloss in Mauritius Peach
BiancaGabriella 6/20/2012 8:47:00 AM
This lipgloss is beautiful! It's a shimmery pinkish peachy colour, has a goldy kind of shimmer in the sunlight. Absolutely gorgeous colour, am sure it would suit ALL skin tones! It kind of gives the lips an illusion of a lot more roundness/plumpness which is great! Nice smell to :) looks gorgeous with natural makeup/no makeup, and for evening wear looks nice with gold & brown eyeshadows :)
This lipstick is amazing! My absolute favourite! Has a beautiful frost finish, it adds a nice shine to the beautiful pink colour! I wear this everyday! Great coverage! Easy to apply, i only apply one coat to the top and one to the bottom, and it's lasts about 4 hours, then I re-apply. Ive also noticed that this is the lipstick Kim kardashian likes to use as well, so of your complexion is like hers, even a bit darker, or a bit lighter I know it will look great! Does not wash you out, kind of gives your face a softer look if you have the same complexion as me(olive/tan skin,brown eyes,med brown hair). This is the best Mac lipstick, quite natural, the price is worth it! Oh and I highly recommend you use a lip balm on you lips before you apply Angel, gives it a smoother look and feels great! If you arnt a fan of the frost finish, 'CremeCup' is pretty much the same, just a bit smoother on the lips and doesn't have the frost finish
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creamsicle
BiancaGabriella 6/20/2012 8:24:00 AM
Lucky I got this on eBay for $15! Because I was very unhappy and disappointed in this colour! I'm a huge fan of the Revlon Colourburst lip butter range, but this one, was horrible. Worst coverage, applied it about 5 times, all the colour sinks right into the lines in the lips, small cracks ect... Not impressed at all... Would not recommend this to anyone, unless their lips are really pale.
Lipstick -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Bare Again
BiancaGabriella 6/20/2012 8:15:00 AM
Love this lipstick! So creamy and easy to apply. Smell is great! :) It's moisturizing and stays on my lips for about 4 hours then I have to re-apply just one wipe across the top and bottom lip :) It's a pink peachy nude, colour goes with everything. It's great for my complexion all year round. If you have olive/tan skin and light brown-black hair it's looks great and doesn't make you looked washed out at all! If you buy it and it is a bit too dark for you liking you can always lighten it up with a light pink or peach gloss. Great lipstick I'll be buying it forever!
