Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia - Bronzer Tinted Tanning Gel

I tried the gel, and I guess I should have tried the spray instead, since everyone is saying good things about the spray. The gel did not sink into my skin and left a really patchy application. I had to wash it off it was so bad. Luckily I got this on sale for $5 so it wasn't too much of a waste. But I think its going straight into the bin sadly.
Treatments (Eye) -Korres - Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Eye Cream

I got this in a pack with a serum so luckily I didn't pay the full price. I didn't find that this eye cream had any positive effects, and if anything I think I noticed more dark eye circles than I have previously had (probably because my previous eye cream worked a lot better than this one). The packaging and the scent is fine, but the worst thing about this product is that it stings your eyes. I don't have sensitive eyes at all, but I found that if you placed this anywhere close to your eyes it will sting your eyes for a few seconds. To avoid any stinging you almost need to place this only on the tops of your cheeks... which is really annoying since it will barely have any effect. I am still using this product because I want to use it up, but I would never repurchase this again.. luckily the face serum isnt as bad! I did a review of the eye cream and serum here http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/korres-quercetin-oak-antiaging-daily.html
I adore this, it has replaced my Bourjois healthy mix and has become my every day foundation. It is super cheap, you get 40g of product compared to most foundations that give you 30g, and it is awesome! The best thing about this is the finish, it gives you a natural semi-matte finish that lasts all day without getting greasy. Normally I need to powder my face during the day with any foundation I used, but with this BB cream I don't need to. It gives a light to medium coverage and it stays all day. I can't say enough good things about this product. It also is oil free and SPF 15. The only cons are that it comes in only two shades, and that it doesn't smell the best - it smells a little like sun screen. See swatches of it on my blog: http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/garnier-bb-cream-miracle-skin-perfector.html
Really easy to use and it doesn't drip at all. It is a bit more expensive than other hair dyes though. See my review of this product on my blog: http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/john-frieda-precision-foam-colour.html
I love these eyeshadows. I got them in gift packs, so they were much cheaper than buying them individually. They are soft, pigmented and you get more product in them that in a MAC eyeshadow. Go to my blog to see the swatches of the colours I have http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/korres-collections.html
I don't know if this blush adjusts or not... and I don't really care to be honest! It's a lovely cool toned pink, and it is super pigmented so you can make it look subtle or intense. I was wearing this blush yesterday when I went out with a friend, and she emailed me today asking me what blush it was because "it was awesome" I normally go for peach blushes, but now that its getting cold, this cool toned blush will be my go to product this winter
Eyeliner -Smashbox - Cream Eye Liner - Midnight Brown
Kathryn9 5/14/2012 11:16:00 PM
ok firstly i was given this as a gift so I'm not sure how much it costs. Cons: this is a horrible eyeliner! it is hard to put on because its very dry, you need to build it up to get a nice pigmented line, and by the time you get that it usually has smudged everywhere because this doesn't set very well. However I did say that I would buy this product again... why? Pros: I gave up on using this as an eyeliner because it just doesn't work, however I have started using it as an eyebrow gel and its amazing! the dry gel consistency holds better than a shadow, and its easier to use than a pencil and it doesnt leave any harsh lines. Because it is quite sheer but buildable, you can use the same product to softly fill in your brows, or to heavily fill them in. I have used this almost every day on my brows since I was given it... but i think i only attempted to use this as an eye liner twice and then gave up.
I love the glitter in this... yes its chunky but it looks amazing with the purple and gold flecks. I don't wear this gloss on its own because I'm not a fan of glitter during the day, but I do love purple lipstick and dark lipsticks when I am going out, and this gloss over the top of something like violetta by mac, looks really impressive. Use this when you want your purple/dark lipstick to have more of a wow factor.
Blush -Too Faced - Brightening Blush - Mocha Mi Amore

Really liking this, its a great contour for my skin colour. I have worn this every day since buying it. My only problem with it was that at first I found it really hard to get much product on my brush, but after I scratched away at the top layer it worked really well. I bought it on special, and I am almost considering going back and getting another because I will definitely buy this product again.
Very pretty colour - it is a brown with a blue shimmer, almost like a more wearable version of MAC's blue brown pigment. Not super pigmented, but beautifully subtle. Highly recommend!
I like the colour, but this product is far too shimmery, I prefer gloss that looks more natural. I also found the smell a little fake, kinda smelt like chocolate mixed with plastic. Not the biggest fan, I got this two for one, and I am seriously thinking of selling my second one on ebay. See my blog post for swatches http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/too-faced-lip-bronzer-review.html
The colour is ok, it is too shimmery for me, but the gloss is ok, a little sticky, but it smells amazing. I would repurchase for the smell alone. I got this buy one get one free, so maybe I wouldn't be so positive if I had to pay full price. See my blog for swatches http://kitschsnitch.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/too-faced-lip-bronzer-review.html
Eye Shadow -Sugarpill - Loose Eyeshadow - Goldilux

Everyone raves about this product so I decided to get it. Out of the Sugarpill pigments that I have, it is the best, but I don't like it as much as something like old gold from MAC. It is a very sparkly gold true gold colour, but it isn't as pigmented as old gold. Goldilux takes a lot of product to make a solid colour, which can result in a lot of fall out. I know it probably isn't as pigmented because it is more of a glitter finish, and old gold is more metallic finish, but I just find that it makes it harder to use.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/ Liner in Marry Up
Kathryn9 4/16/2012 8:23:00 PM
I love this. The colour is a very pigmented coppery rose gold that looks great with brown eyes. Once it has dried, it stays put all day. This is my new go to product when I dont have time to do my makeup, I just throw this on with some mascara and i'm done. I also have the creaseless cream shadow in Gossip, and I probably wouldn't buy that one again. So I guess that some of these are a hit or a miss depending on which one you buy
I bought this colour as a contour, because it was raved about on the internet. I like it, but sadly won't buy it again. Pros: The tone of this colour is great. I hate pinky contour blushes and this one is a true nude. It's not too brown so it doesnt make me look dirty. I also love how there is no shimmer. Cons: The only con for me is that its slightly too light for my skin tone, and doesn't contour very well for me. I will keep persisting because it's not cheap, but I feel like I have to cake it on to get it an effect.
