An "instant conditioner" as it says, it felt like the most basic formulations of a conditioner (the kind that you'll get in a free travel pack). Ive got fine hair and this actually left my hair feeling a little dry and 'hard' after using it. The only plus point is its lingering jasmine scent. Don't waste your money on this one.
This really enhances your lashes (by about 30%?) using it before your mascara application. The consistency of the product is a bit thick but isn't too much of a problem :) I hope its not psychological *lol*, but I find that my mascara wears better with Underwear for Lashes!

This is such a pleasant concealer to use :> The cream to powder formula allows it to set on your skin *nicely*. I don't have a problem with it cresaing and prefer it to my previous MAC & Chanel concealers.
I really liked this colour in the pan, but it somehow doesn't give me the same effect when applied (eg. it appeared rather dull). I've got warm undertones, and I think this would suit ladies with cool skin tones better.

This was a horrible experience for me. Initially, I used this only to remove my waterproof mascara. However, because I didn't bring back my toiletries when I went back for a holiday, I decided to use my Mum's Shu cleanser. I smoothered it all over my face and rinsed it off and when I woke the next morning, there were these little bumps ALL OVER my face. It was inflammed or anything but it did look really scary. I didn't think anything of it and thought it would go away after a while. By evening, the bumps started to go red and itched a bit. I also noticed that I had some of it on my ears as well! I went to a dermatologist the next day and was told that I've developed Acute Dermatitise (an allergy reaction due to contact with oil or cosmetics). OOOooohh boy was I in for it! The doctor precribed me with 4 different pills (1 of which was steriods) + a medicated clenser and a cream. Was adviced to stay out of the sun and avoid alcohol cos although non-transmittable, the dermatitise would actually spread to other areas of the skin. Mine was actually starting to travel down my neck..and *jesus* the bumps/rash really spread to cover ever bit on my face! It has since cleared but it was really a frightful experience. Not to mention the hefty doctor's bill! So for any ladies with sensitive skin, test a bit of this product at the back of your ear before buying it?
I love this pencil! I've never used any lip liners I purchased more than once - thats because no matter how I try, I always get that 'Pam Anderson' lined-lips-look *lol*. Funny how despite trying them in different shades, it still gave me that look. But Im
Ricepaper gave me the effect which I was expecting from Retrospeck. Weird how both shaodows appeared in comparison just by looking at them from the pot. Ricepaper didn't appear very appealing, but once u have this on, its just oh-so-glam! I love this heapz
This is an *awesome* brow pencil. Was using shadows from Bobbi Brown to fill my brows before I tried this..Was skeptical at first cos the last thing I wanted was a pencil line in place of natural looking brows. I used a brow brush to swipe over the line and it blended to look perfectly natural. Go get it, you won't regret =>

This is a very nice foundation. Extremely light/thin consistency yet providing coverage. Does its job at evening out the skin tone yet not masking your natural skin colour. Only problem...it really lacks lasting power.
This moisturizer is like a dream. It is a cream formula but it glides on like a gel-based moisturizer! Also quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving any sticky residue.

This is such a fabulous 'powder'. I don't even know it that is the write term to use. Didn't think much of it in the beginning as I was dusting this on top of my loose powder. But when I tried it without the loose powder it gave the most natural, sheerest and glowy effect!
Gawd I am such a dag. I actually didn't realise that there was eyeshadow in this product. I thought it was just the liner, and the sponge applicator on the other end was suppose to create the 'eyeshadow' (as in use it to blend and there you go->eyeshadow). I had this for a week before I realised. OK with that said, the eyecolor is really lovely. The violet liner isn't as harsh as black liners and not as boring as the usual browns. I wish the liner was a real pencil in itself. I don't really like the 'automatic' liner cos the tip isn't fine enough to create a neat line.
I consider this an expensive purchase cos it retails for A$75 (*shhhessshh*)in Australia. The colours look pretty boring in the quad, but gives such a polished and demure look on application! Because the colours are so subtle, I reckon its better for day use.
Skincare - Face -Olay - Total Effects Vitamin Enriched Moisturizer

*Jeese* I'm so amazed by all the raves of this product I read from magazines - which is also the only reason I bought it. It is such an ordinary moisturiser. I think there is a bit of pinkish 'tint' to this as it I seem to appear a bit fairer upon application. The consistency feels just right to smoother over your face(not too thick)and appears to 'plump' up your skin - temporarily. I wouldn't recomend using it before makeup application because of the tint. Overall, this isn't worth even trying.
This is a pleasant stain to use..more of something for daily wear(i.e.school?work?). Don't expect anything fancy or glitzy. Its more of a warm rosy stain than 'pink'. Its quite pigmented yet subtle on application. Wish they had a wider choice of shades though.
