Pink with a cranberry hint. It's very pretty, summery and young. Standard quality for an OPI formula, chips at any other time a normal OPI would. Only downside is it's not hugely original but still as gorgeous as ever.
Top/Base Coats -Butter London - Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat

Good base coat, doesn't necessary make my nail polish last longer. Quick drying time, cute packaging, it has a nice beige tinge to it. I wish the brush was better, it's slightly too long and awkward to hold. Leaves the nail with the ability for the next color to stick to it. The favorite feature would be that after applying it is impossible to stain your nails with any other color.
Formula is great. Thin, easy to apply and not too streaky. Takes about 3 coats to get it opaque for me. Doesn't really suit my skin, looks like an odd dirt brown with a subtle shimmer for me. Found that this sticks extremely well with the right top and base coat. Lasts well compared to other brands on the market now. Full fan of butter London, this has been the only semi-disappointing color so far. Not bad, just not really popping on my skin tone.
I was really excited to use this product, it seemed like I was the last person on the Moroccanoil bandwagon. I have naturally wavy, heavy hair which can be a bit unruly and I found that this product didn't help much. Applying after towel drying hair, I had to use about 3 pumps to adequately dispense the product throughout my hair. The 125ml bottle with pump is great because otherwise the oil would spill everywhere. Upsides is that it does make my hair dry faster, although reading all this stuff about Sulphates or whatever freaks me out. The best part of this product is that it doesn't weigh your hair down like a lot of other serums or oils. It's probably most suited to those with fine hair because this just makes my hair look fluffy. There isn't really a downside to this product, it's average and is like every other drug store product. I don't particularly like the smell and it doesn't tame frizzy fly-aways. For now just to use up the product, I'm just going to use it as a finishing serum to tame the last pieces before going out. This product is average at best.
This has been my go to mascara for years, and just reading these reviews makes me feel a bit weird. I don't have that many lashes and they are mainly straight, after curling my lashes, about 3 strokes of this and they look long and it really picks up the small ones. The huge wand works for me, it means less swipes and you really do only need about 3 strokes to make it look like you have great natural lashes. I found that any more than that gives you a somewhat spidery-hooker look. It does dry out, but I think people are exaggerating. After about 6 months it flakes too much to be good, but you really should replace mascaras after 6 months anyway. This makes me want to look at new reviews :( I've been really happy with this mascara. It's beaten what I previously have used (Maybelline, L'Oreal, Napoleon Perdis, Clinique, Chanel)
GHD's don't often live up to the hype. I bought it from ASOS for $188AUD and whilst not being all my dreams come true it's pretty good straightener. Compared to my previous Remington, Chi's and VS straighteners it wins hands down. Positives: Heats in under 30 seconds, plates are super smooth and slightly curved so you can get curls, waves and straight hair. I ordered the 'glam set' which came with a heat protective bag and plate protector, both of which are very needed. Styles can hold without sprays or gels and leaves hair very smooth and polished feeling. Negatives: No ability for heat setting, takes a long time to cool down and after about 20 minutes, the outside of the plates is also burning hot so styling is hard. Something which I find a bit odd is when you straighten/curl a section of hair, you cannot go back immediately after to 'undo' it. You need to wait about 5 minutes before changing it.... Regardless, still a pretty awesome straightener.
