I bought this product from the cherryculture website feeling a little skeptical, partly because I live in Australia and the shipping cost is magnanamous, and also the fact that I've never tried it before. I received this in the mail a little over a week ago on special ($3.00 AUD?) and I have to say I LOVE IT. I expected it to go on as a somewhat dryish, lip-stick type of texture but I was absolutely wrong. It glides on my lips and seems to feel more like a lip balm, yet the colour (I got hot red) is vibrant and very pigmented, even without a base. Brownie points to NYX for not testing on animals. Definitely recommend this product to everyone!

Loved this product, it was a bargain at $2.50 AU. It truly is waterproof unless you rub it .. yep don't rub your eyes and this eyeliner stays on all night long :)

I bought the #5 Black steel palette for something like $3 AU. For a $3 palette, I'd say it's quite worth it - especially being a makeup cheapo like me. The texture is a bit powdery, and the colour payoff slightly on the sheer side but unless you're sweating buckets it doesn't fade too fast. I managed a few parties with this palette and it has lasted a few hours at a time. Not bad, in my opinion.
I love this product. I used to have extremely dry skin on the backs of my hands to the point of rashes and bleeding. Most other moisturisers don't work for me, it softens my skin for a short period of time but then kind of 'fades'. When I used this moisturiser I found that my hands stayed soft for ages, and gradually healed over time thanks to this moisturiser. Love it. :)
I bought this foundation about a month ago and after using it for a while, tried and tested, I can pretty much conclude that it has been the source of many breakouts I have had in the past few weeks. It's extremely oily, at first I was quite positive about this foundation, but as soon as I applied it I realised I was quite wrong. The oilyness may be due to the fact that it's SPF15, as most sunscreen foundations are.. But this still doesn't explain why I'm breaking out like crazy. For some reason it dries a slightly darker orangey shade which wasn't appealing at all. The shade I bought matched my skintone, but unfortunately the product did not live up to my expectations. Never again.
