I love nude colours and bought this as it looked quite nude on swatches I saw online. To me it's more of a blush pink/rose, with a slightly beige undertone. It's very pretty. I think I prefer more peachy toned nudes on my nails though. Formula is great however, not streaky at all and is opaque in 2 coats.
I love how NYX lippies are so inexpensive, but not at all cheap! Gorgeous colours and most I have tried are long lasting. My favourite colour from the range is Snow White.
I bought this polish a while ago and haven’t really worn it much, the formula seemed to be quite sheer and it needed a lot of coats to become opaque, but I was feeling girly and thought I would give this one another shot. Pink Voltage by China Glaze is a matte neon pink with a slight pearl shimmer. It took four coats to be completely opaque but the drying times for in between coats is super fast! I’m glad I have this polish another go as I am loving neon colours at the moment.
Beautiful shimmery metallic looking royal blue polish. It looks fabulous on nails, but takes FOREVER to dry! I ended up getting scratches on the surface of my nails even though I was careful. It has also chipped at the top of my nails after one day, but I change my colour every few days anyway so it's not so much of an issue for me.

I got this as a sample. The full sized product is NZ$300 and that is just way, WAY out of my price range, which is a real shame because this product is great! I didn't get a chance to use it over a long period of time, but like the 1st reviewer it made my skin feel so silky and smooth and I could actually tell the difference in my skins appearance over the time I did get to use it. If I had the money I would definitely repurchase.
This has actually become one of my favourite polishes in my collection! I wasn't too sure about it because yellows tend to wash me out, but this pastel banana milk colour was so flattering on my nails. The formula is great, only 2 coats to get it completely opaque. I used 3 coats and it lasted a long time without chipping. Love love LOVE this polish!
I am in love!! I got this as a sample to try before I bought a full size and I will definitely be purchasing one! The brush is great and not too thick and long, and it does what it is supposed to - lengthens, volumises and it even seems to curl my lashes. Best mascara I have ever tried.
Lovely pastel light lavender colour polish. Subtle grey tinge to it. Opaque in 2 coats. Typical great China Glaze polish! Love!
The most beautiful polish I own! Perfect ruby colour with very fine glitter particles. Definitely lives up to it's name, looks just like Dorothy's ruby slippers in Wizard of Oz. Opaque in 2 coats and not streaky. LOVE this nail polish.
Gorgeous gold glitter polish! The glitter particles are smaller and finer than some of the other CG glitter polishes I own, but it makes it look more refined and pretty. Flecks of blue & green make it shimmer and sparkle. Opaque in 3 coats. I like to layer this over a peach colour and it makes it look rose gold which I love!

Quite expensive which I think is the only thing that lets this night cream down. It feels quite luxurious putting this on my skin and it immediately makes my skin soft and supple looking and more even toned. It sinks in deeper to the skin overnight leaving it feeling fab! Very light pleasant scent.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

After reading the reviews on MUA for use as a toner I thought I'd give it a try. It works REALLY well! Of course the smell isn't all that great, but it fades and disappears after a while. I use it 1:1 and just filled up an empty toner bottle. My skin seems more even and softer after having used this for the past month. So much cheaper and natural! I also use the cider vinegar for a hair rinse and it leaves my hair soft and manageable. Vinegar is so great for so many things and this is no exception!
I wanted a glittery sparkly silver polish for my collection, and this one is fantastic! 3 coats and it's opaque. I love the tiny holographic glitters in it, makes it look more 'disco ball' and shiny. Total nightmare to remove but I find that with most glitter polishes.
My new favourite product for my eyebrows! I used to use a NYX pencil but it was a pain sharpening it ALL the time. Heard really good things about this kit, and my sister bought it in dark - I told her it would be TOO dark, but when she got it, it wasn't. We have the same colour eyebrows so I tried it out first before purchasing mine and it is the perfect shade for me now that I have dyed my hair dark brown. I usually just use the gel part, as I've found the powder - for me - is a bit too much on the golden side, and my hair & brows are more ashy. So cheap and it'll last so long.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - 6 Piece Eye Brush Set (5 brushes + case)

I really like these brushes. I use them everyday to do my eye makeup. So soft, and small handles so it's easy to apply eyeshadow precisely. Love the blending brush, and the small ones are great for when I want to do a smokey eye and don't want a line too thick under my eye. So cheap as well! But great quality.
