Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

I bought this while it was on sale, 40% off at Chemist Warehouse for all you Aussies. I really wanted to like this product because of the hype, but honestly, it's not that great. It's no better than Maybelline's Great Lash, as just like the cheaper drug store mascara, Diorshow Blackout comes out clumpy and like other reviewers have said, it smudges after a while, leaving me with unflattering panda eyes. I've use both drug store and high end mascaras and to tell you the truth, most of the drug store mascaras do the same job, if not a better job, than the expensive department store mascaras
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Egyptian Magic Healing Cream

This is the product that I have been searching for all my life!!! Ok, maybe I'm over exaggerating a bit, but I'm truly in love with this product! I suffer from eczema, so my skin is very, very sensitive. From time to time I'll break out in rashes that usually leave scars once the rashes have disappeared. I've tried using bio oil, vitamin e, body butter & papaya soap to fade the scars, but so far nothing has really worked for me. If anything, some products have made my skin worse by irritating my eczema. I've been using EM for a week now and I've seen tremendous results thus far. For one thing, it hasn't irritated my eczema and most importantly my scars have faded with each day that I use EM. I'll definitely be re - purchasing this product again despite the fact that it's quite pricey ($AUD72), but I think its worth every cent!
Tinted Moisturizer -Dove - Essential nutrients protective tinted moisturizer SPF15

This is my HG tinted moisturizer! I've been using this product since I was in high school and whilst I've tried other tinted moisturizers, I always find myself coming back to this one! For days when I don't feel like wearing foundation, but still don't to leave the house with a bare face, this is the product I reach for when I get ready in the morning. Its easy to apply, i just use my hand, and it evens out my skin tone, leaving me with a beautiful dewy/ healthy glow. I also mix this with my foundation as well. During the summer, I often tan really easily so my foundation usually end up being way too light for me. So rather than going out and spending money on a new foundation, I just add some of this product and voila! Beautiful, flawless skin!
Cleansers -L'Oreal - De-maq expert Absolute Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover

I really hate that I have to write such a bad review about this product. When I first began using this, it worked like a dream. It removed my eye make up without me having to put much effort into it. It did however, sting my eyes and make them go red. But that's something that I could have lived with. The thing that I can't live with, is that I noticed that after using this product for a while, my usually thick eyelashes started to become sparse and the more I continued to use this, the sparser my eyelashes would become, so I stopped using this product for a while. Within a month of not using this product, my eyelashes are back to how they used to be. I'm not saying that this eye make - up remover thins eyelashes, this could just be an isolated case, but to be on the safe side, I'm definitely not going to use this ever again!
Treatments -Garnier - Synergie Pure - SOS Anti-Blemish Pen

THIS PRODUCT REALLY WORKS!!! Well, at least for me! I've used many treatments to get rid of pimples, and this one really delivers! Every now and then, I break out and get a huge cyst like pimple on my forehead and it usually takes more than a week for it to disappear if I don't use any treatments on it. Anyways, a few days ago someone gave me the SOS Anti - Blemish pen and it worked straight away. Within an hour of me applying this product, I noticed that my pimple had already began to shrink and it's been shrinking every since!!!
Primer/ Corrector -Natio - Ageless Illuminating Primer

Prior to using this product, I used the Smashbox photo finish foundation primer and I must say, the Natio primer is ten times better. I've noticed that once I've applied my foundation, my skin looks a lot more smoother/flawless than it would if I had used the smashbox primer. I love love love this product & at under $20, it's an absolute steal!
