Lip Treatments -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter
anneh89 5/23/2007 7:01:00 AM
I was very tempted to buy this by the name, but after looking for this product for agees, i finally found it, and it was only AU$3.95!! ^_^. It's smells great, JUST like chocolate and peppermint, too bad i can't eat it, unfortunately it doesn't taste like what it smells like. Feels slightly cool in my lips, and it's keeps them moisturised :) Will re-purchase again...
I bought this to use as a face powder, to put over my foundation, but unfortunately it was a little too orange/peach for my skin (i have medium warm skin). I didn't want it to go to waste, so now i found another use for it. A blush! It actually looks great on my cheeks, the colour isn't to intense, but it does give my cheeks a nice soft wash of colour :) This stuff is going to last me ages...but i would buy it again when i run out.
1 lippy off because it's a face powder and not a blush (i swear they should make a blush this colour).
Highlighters -Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia Illuminator Stick - Highlight

I saw this advertised in a magazine, and i thought I'd give it a try. The stick actually looks a light brown, but once you put it on it's more white-y shimmer. It's a cream stick, but i usually use my fingers to spread it on, instead of applying the stick directly to my face, because it's quite thick, then i just blend it in. I love putting this stuff on my cheekbones, it actually makes it looks like a have some, ha. Also great to highlight my lip bow, chin, anywhere. I'm definitely going to buy this again, and again, i just hope they don't discontinue it!.
Heard alot about this product from magazines and such, and thought i'd give it a go. My hair was all greasy and oily, and was plastered to my head :(. When i sprayed it over my roots, and i got a little scared coz it was white...agghh...and i have very dark brown hair. But withing a couple of minutes i could tell that it has sbsorbed all my oil. It Brushed it out pretty well, and voila!!! My hair looked clean and had lots of volume. The only bad thing is that my hair can look a little dull after this, but nothing that a little shine serum/spray can't fix :D It took a whole 3 minutes, which is a great time saver, sine i usually take at least 1 hour the wash and dry my hair. Great for in between hair wash days :D Definitely will re-purchase :D
Eye Shadow -Chi Chi - Eye Shadow Dust in Caribbean Queen

When i first picked it up i tought it was a turquoise colour, but when i tried it, i found it looking more green. Very shimmery, i love using it as an eyeliner, makes my brown eyes pop :D . I think the packaging is cute, and none of it flies/comes out when i open or close it. Love it :D
Love this palette, all the colours go so well with each other. It's hard to explain the 6 colours, but there a olive, olive/yellow, reddy/brown, 2 light burgundy, and a black with silver sparkles (not huge glitter chunks though), all the colours are shimmery/pearlescent). Make my brown eyes pop :D
Comes with 6 colours. Beige/tan, terracotta, and brown colours, and two light/pale greens, and a normal green colour, all shimmery/pearlescent. All colours go very well with each other. Really pigmented. I love the darker green the best, it really brings out my brown eyes. I also love the tan colour, as a usually use it for a natural look. Not a fan of the brush, but i simply use my finger, or my other brushes.
Awesome candy coloured eye palette. Comes with white, pink, purple, light green, turquoise/green, and pale sandy yellow (all shimmery/pearlescent). Good selection of colours, i find them really pigmented, great for bright make-up, this is going to by my fave palette this Spring/Summer. Also love using them as an eyeliner, i just use a damp eyeliner brush. Definately will repurchase. But I'm not a big fan of the brush, which comes with it.
Great palette with 5 brown/taupe colours, and 1 grey colour, all shimmery/pearlescent. Really pigmented, smooth and easy to apply. Great for natural/bare make-up. Not a fan of the brush :( So i use my own. Also it's very easy to do a simple brown smokey eye with this pallete. Definately will repurchase ^_^
Palettes -Chi Chi - Eye Palette - Brazilian Goddess

This palette comes with 6 really, bright bold colours. Blue (w/shimmer/pearl), Hot Pink (w/Shimmer), Red (w/Shimmer), Orange (matte), Yellow (w/shimmer/pearl), Black (matte).
I find the colours really bold, and pigmented. They REALLY stand out. They go on pretty evenly, but i not a fan of the brush that comes with it, so i use my others. Great palette if you want to make a statement w/your eye make-up, great for party make-up e.t.c ^_^
I thought I'd give this ago, to see if a like it better than my normal pencil eyeliner. I usually use it dry when i want a smokey line, and damp/wet when i want a defined line. And so far it's worked pretty good. I WAS a little dissapointed in the colour. I was hoping it to be a little more black, because it can look a little bit gray if i don't put more than 2 layers on. I also don't use the applicator which came with it, instead i use a brush, i find it hard trying to use the applicator.
Besides that I'm pretty happy with it, but i don't think i'll repurchase, i might try find something more darker/pigmented next time.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Jet Black
anneh89 10/6/2006 9:17:00 PM
I love this, especially when i want a smokey effect. It's doesn't tug when i apply, and it goes on smooth. It's easy to smudge when i want it to. It's easy even easy to apply this to my waterline. I will buy this again and again.
Unfortunatly i have short, spikey lashes. This product DID leave my eyelasheds looking really soft and natural, and it also made my eyelashes a little darker/thicker. But it was so soft/natural that it didn't hold my curl, so i ended up with straight eyelashes again. So i wouldn't recommend this to people who have straight lashes. I was a little dissapointed, probably wouldn't purphase again.
Now the only time i use it is as a 2nd or 3rd coat, after i use a mascara that holds my curl.
I use this sunscreen on my face, because it doesn't irritate my skin, other sunscreens i tried would give my rashes e.t.c. :( It's pretty thick, and it protects really well...awesume for the Australian sun :) Will re-purchase :D
Self Tanners -Garnier - Ambre Solaire Bronz up Self-Tanning Moisturising Milk
anneh89 7/1/2006 6:28:00 AM
Since i don't liek getting sunburnt, or tanning in the sun, i wanted to try fake tan. I thought this product looked good, so i thoguht i'd give it a try. I moisturised first, and then put this product on. It's pretty easy to put on, it takes a coupla hours to develop, but i didn't even up with any streaks! :D I guess it's probably because i really rubbed it in to my skin, so it ended up even. :D Buuut, i did end up with darker ankles, so now i put some extra sorbolene creme on the really dry areas (ankles, knees e.t.c) before putting the tan stuf on... It contains apricot extracts, which explains the smell, but i think it's smells nice, not artificial at all :D Will repurchase time and time again :D
