i love this mascara omg, its the only one which i can use, that wont get on my eyelids! I love how the formula is quite dry, people with already thick and long eyelashes should not use this and it wont do anything for you. This is probably my favourite, it dries quick, makes me look like i have eyelashes, its great! I dont really care for packaging haha
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup

Mmmh as it says in the name, "Mousse" Its really quite thick, the consistency...The packaging is pretty good as it is a squeeze tube, but i find it separates and i dont know how you are meant to combine the separates together? (that didnt make sense at all). Anyways, you do have to use some effort to squeeze it out, because very little comes out. But i guess that's a positive as you cant squeeze too much out.The coverage is in between light and medium, it doesnt feel like you are wearing anything, I think it is very good for evening out skin tones and fading pigmentation. As my jawline area is quite red and so are my cheeks, this foundation is quite good for that. Update: Alright, i dont know but THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS FOUNDATION IS THAT ITS MAKES YOUR FACE MATT, I dont understand how this foundation works, i put a second layer on and the foundation turned into like, little chunks? Bits got into my pores (as they are more big near the nose )and it looked like i had pigments of dots everywhere? The first layer was alright, but still omg my pores...they turned into skin coloured dots..... However it looks okay in places with small pores like my jawlines -_- ugh wasted 15 bucks on this (cheap for aus, however i go to this shop that probably gets their stuff from america, then resells, cheaper as this would have been atleast 25), I had high hopes for this because i didnt see mineral oil or alot of paraben ingredients.... -_- im gonna go to covergirl or something cheaper... maybe mousse foundation just isnt good for my skin type. ANOTHER edit: If you, are like me and do no like the consistency because it does not blend well and it bunches up on the skin, I've found that mixing it with a tinted moisturiser, or just a good moisteriser really helps! However the foundation by itself is not something i would repurchse as i am currently mixing 2 other foundations with this.
It has a weird texture that looks quite like granulated chalk mixed with some weird oily paste.... alright, i dont really know but i probably got the wrong shade, anyways, if you apply it where you have bigger pores, places where you can see the tiny hairs on your face. Completely accentuates, also if you have it at the wrong shade it completely shows in photos. The ingredients did not seem very nice to me so...you can really find a better foundation at the price of this.
The consistency of the concealer is quite hard, but when you put your brush or finger onto it, it turns into thin cream like consistency onto your brush/finger. It does not give that much coverage, which means you must layer quite alot of thin layers for more coverage. I like this concealer as it is quite thin and creamy feeling on the skin. However i don't think can cover breakouts with this concealer, as it is too thin. I recommend it for under eyes (However if your circles are quite dark you will have to layer on top a light reflective concealer after applying the pink and beige shades). I reccomend it for fading out pigmentation, fading out small scars. It will not be able to cover break outs, you will have to go to Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier or Dermablend. This product is good for neutralising pigmentation but if you put it on area where you have big pores/have oily skin and don't powder, it completely accentuate the lines in the skin, it also falls into pores, and you can see the product looking like dots. Only masks the darkness for a while when just applied freshly, it sinks into the lines in the skin and the patches after a few hours if you do not powder. You must powder with this if you have oily skin.
i purchased 02 MY FAVOURITE MILKSHAKE. It is a very pretty colour, basically, a strawberry milkshake color, hence the name. It does not have glitters, and i am VERY thankful for that, as there are not many brands that come out with glosses with no glitter. They give more of a mature feeling and especially since i really like Dolly Wink glosses. Alright, anyways, pigmentation, i think it is pretty good for a lipgloss, especially at this price! But lipglosses dont really have pigmentation in it one u smooth it out? Especially if you have pigmented lips, but u can apply concealer onto the lips before applying this lipgloss for the colour to show a bit more. It has a pretty peculiar applicator, but i really do like it, the curvy part is great for applying the gloss to your lower lip. Not convienient for the upper lip though ( i think it would be convenient to people with small lips though). However that is not a big deal as it is a sponge type. I wished they used spatula applicators though *-* Jesus and its so cheap, well for make up in Australia, the price is amazing. It was $4 AUD. Anyways, i layer it with the 09 Nude Coral lip liner. Help the gloss stay and gives it more colour The outcome is a very pretty, girly, corally, pink color. However, it is quite sticky, but that means it lasts longer. It is quite sheer so you can just use it as a moisturising lipgloss. You really cant loose anything for buying this, seriously! Alright, since i dont like wearing lipgloss out, i put it on before i went to bed and left it there. I woke up and it looked like i just put it on. I slept for 10 hrs. Proof. Obviously it will come off when you eat though.
THIS IS AMAZING, Its so smooth and soft. Very rich in pigment aswell. You dont even need to press down to draw, the softest touch, oh jesus. Only for $2 AUD Go for it! You can use this just by itself as lipstick, it is very opaque and creamy. Definitely gonna go back and purchase some more! However this lip liner will not help lipstick stay on, it is only for helping lipstick show more of its pigmentation, it is too creamy for helping lipsticks stay on.
Jesus its amazing, i bought the sparkly brown one its called "02 London Baby" only $5.95 AUD which is AMAZING for a gel liner in oz, much cheaper that the Maybelline one and the pigment is MUCH stronger, also this brand does no test on animals! Jesus need more of this, they had a whole stand at Broadway shopping centre, but they dont have the whole line of Essence in all shopping centres where i live :( ! Im definitely gonna purchase some more from this brand. Go for it! You cant lose anything from buying this! I cannot describe the colour at all! It looks like a gun metal grey with purple undertones, however purple brown grey in some lightings, oh its amazing! Buy it! It is so much creamier and more pigmented than the Maybelline gel liner.

honestly its not that bad. i got kinda scared to open it after seeing some bad reviews on it. So i took the risk and opened it. the green is only too neon looking if u use too much. It does cover but if u have a dried up pimple and try ciover it it will not work. Same with flakey skin. When using green dab small tiny dots and then blend with fingers to warm it up and to make it blend easier It really is not worth your money though, it was 20 Aud. Quite expensive for me.
