Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Extase Flash Plumping Mascara
babyphat14 10/17/2012 1:39:00 AM
My favorite mascara. It looks 'va-va voom' and lasts all day, without flaking. Definitely makes eye lashes thicker and ensures they stand out. I like to use this as my special mascara, and not every day, as it's quite strong. Still searching for the perfect everyday version! My only grumble is the price - close to $60 here, where I know its close to $30 in the US! You US ladies have it very good for makeup :)
Bought this mascara as it was the highest-selling mascara at a drugstore here in Australia (Priceline). It stung a little when I applied it, and is a very 'strong smelling' mascara (compared to my Diorshow Extase). The brush is okay, but at the end of the day I have massive panda eyes, and I only put a tiny bit on my bottom lashes. Won't be re-buying, will need to find a new 'every day' mascara.
Liquid -Christian Dior - Diorskin Nude Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using this foundation for over a year now. It's great even coverage, although light. Its supposed to be dewy but over time I've noticed that its more matte. Colours are a great match and foundation looks really natural. I've had to return 2 bottles because the pump has broken though, a problem a few people have had apparantly! I'm trying to find a more dewy foundation at the moment but this was definitely one of my favorite products for some time.
I'm going to echo alot of reviews on here & say that this blush is a must have! truly lives up to its name in regards to colour - its pink with light flecks of gold. I swipe it a couple of times over my cheeks and it gives quite a lot of coverage. I've been using it for over a year now and it only just cracked in the middle, something alot of blushes do (especially MAC!) pretty quick. Definitely a re-purchase
Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel

Decided to try this after looking - like everyone - EVERYWHERE for a good mascara. Previously used Chanel 'Cils a Cils' but found it very natural-looking, as if I didn't wear mascara at all. I was a bit hestitant about using a comb instead of a normal mascara wand but the comb works well. This mascara isn't a 'high impact' mascara - not much volumising but it separates every lash and lengthens. I've worn it a few times and have had the feeling like a lash is caught or bent in the corner of my eye - hopefully that is just my lashes at the moment and not a product of the mascara, otherwise back it goes, and I'll go back to Shu Umereu!
Have used this for a couple of years and it's great! I put a small amount on an area where there is a pimple & it dries it out in no time - I apply before bedtime. It is strong so you don't need alot. Highly recommend!
Cleansers -Olay - Daily Facials Express - All Skin Types

GREAT cleansers! I must admit, I use them everyday...bad I know but I just hate cleansing & these are so easy. Nice, fresh (if not a little strong) scent and removes makeup like a dream. Cheap as well & the packaging is good - it seals right back up again. I usually break out from alot of products and this is one of the only ones where I don't. Highly recommend!
After getting a few mini bottles as a free sample, I tried this out to good results. Mainly, my skin didn't break out after using, which is unusual. I use it every 3rd day when it says to use every day so I don't notice any major difference - I'm actually a bit scared to exfoliate every day! My skin is clearer though so I highly recommend! Can't say much about the price as I actually haven't bought it yet, but seeing as you don't need to use alot it seems as if it would last.
Makeup Brushes -Napoleon Perdis - Napoleon Foundation Sable Brush - 19b

GREAT brush! Soft bristles (sable) and distributes foundation easily and smoothly. Bit on the expensive side 68$AUD, but I've found you have to pay money for good brushes. Previously used a synthetic brush so I definately noticed the difference.
I SUCK at drawing a nice line on my eyelids so this probably wasn't the best liquid eyeliner for me but oh well (my mum draws it on instead HAHA). Staying power is amazingg (which is why I bought it); applicator is not! Definately buying another brush. To remove I use baby oil - takes it off like a dream! Probably wouldn`t buy this product again as I can`t apply it properly but I`ll continue using it till I run out!
Moisturizers -Lancome - Pure Focus Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion

Today is my first day of using this (thank God I only got a trial size!) and already, 2 hours later, I'm EXTREMELY itchy! Feels like my face is on fire. It could be the new mineral powder I'm using so tomorrow I'm going to eliminate the moisterizer and if it's still itchy I'll know its not that. UPDATE: It was the mineral powder that I was allergic too! Just applied the moisterizer on its own and it was fine. Will have to give it a few weeks and then consider buying it if all is well. I don't mind that it "disappears" like other reviews have said, because it's supposed to sink in anyways?
JUST bought this powder yesterday and after having it on for 2 hours my skin is SOOOOO itchy!! I don't know if it's because of the mineral powder or the Lancome moisterising cream I've got underneath it so tomorrow I'll just use the powder by itself. Seriously though, it feels like my face is going PING all the time. As for coverage, its extremely light which is good for me because I like the natural look. UPDATE: I found out that I was allergic to 'bismuth oxychloride' which is found in several mineral powders. Apparantly 75% of women are allergic to it; its an ingredient that comes directly from the ground and causes face rashes and itchiness. Will be returning this tomorrow.
LOVEEEE this product! I have straight hair at my roots, then halfway down it becomes wavy. I wash my hair at night, rub about a 10c (sorry if you guys don't know how big that is! Australian money...) size amount into my wet hair and then go to sleep. When I wake up in the morning my hairs really curly! I rub a bit in in the morning and it makes the curls more defined and manageable. I was considering Frederic Fekkai's curl spray but then saw the bad reviews it got on here! Buy Be Curly instead!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

First time using a primer and its great!! Makes my eyeshadow stay on that much longer..great non-greasy formula. I've heard people complaining about the small amount in the tube. Well, when you think theres nothing left in it, cut it open in the middle. There's enough in the corners (because its an oddly shaped bottle) to fill two mini containers! Definately recommend.. (I bought mine off Ebay because we don't have Urban Decay in Australia and it was cheap!)
GREAT product! Pros - beautiful colour (looks different on than in the pan) a blue/purple/pink colour, builds up REALLY well (goes on light but after i covered my whole eyelid up to my brow line it was vibrant!), stays on, doesn't crease Cons - SMALL pan!
