Eye Shadow -Mirenesse - Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadows
courtneyk01 7/9/2012 4:59:00 AM
I have this trio in Akoya Pearls which contains a pink toned highlight colour, a medium peachy/pink colour and a coppery/bronze colour. This was in my Lust Have It! box which is an Australian version of Lust Have It ($14.95 AUD/month subscription) and this product retails for $29.95 AUD. I find the price to be extremely reasonable because you get three decent sized amazing quality eye shadows for $30. All three colours in my trio have excellent colour pay off, are buttery smooth and blend well together. As the name suggests, they are creaseless and I find them to last all day on me. I actually have a post on my blog with pictures, swatches and an eye of the day. Please check it out. http://beautydiscoveredbycourtney.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/mirenesse-review-swatches-and-eye-of.html
Really enjoy this product and find it super convenient. Only downside is switching out scents. I have a full review on my blog. http://beautydiscoveredbycourtney.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/travalo-review.html
I actually have two of Inglots flakie polishes and thats 202 (reds/orange flakes) and 203 (green/blue opalescent flakes). I absolutely love them and find them to be a great way to liven up and make your manicure look unique. My favourite is pairing 203 with turquoisey colours for an ocean/mermaid look. Please check out my blog for a nail of the day with this combination. http://beautydiscoveredbycourtney.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/notd-mermaid-nails.html
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

This is a really great gel liner, works fine for what I want and I can get the look I want with it. I haven't had any problems with it drying up or smudging. The reason I wouldn't repurchase this is because I have found a product that does the same thing for much cheaper (especially in Australia) and that is essence
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

To me, this is pretty much just a tinted moisturiser. I find that it gives very minimal coverage, I have pretty good skin so that's ok with me. I just wear this on days when I don't feel like wearing any makeup, it evens out my skin a bit and it gives me just a bit of protection too.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single in Brulee

As others have said, this is such a great matte highlight when you don't want any shimmer. I have pretty fair skin so this is also a good colour for me to clean up around other colours and blend out if I use it lightly. Something I do hate about it though is the packaging, once I close it, it's nearly impossible to re-open so I leave it a little bit open so I don't have that problem. Other than that, it does a great job for me.
I really love the smell of this but unfortunately the smell doesn't linger on the skin as much as other soaps. Other than that, it is really great as it can exfoliate as well as moisturise with the different textures. I love it. but like I said, I wish to scent stayed around a little longer.
I never used to use a toner because I had a bad reaction ages ago but that's because that one was really harsh. I guess I just never bothered after that experience. I purchased this a while ago and have been using it. It helps make sure your skin is completely clean after you've cleansed and even adds a bit of moisture. I believe it has improved my skin. Wouldn't use it as a facial mister once make up is on though.
Not too keen on the smell of this. It is really moisturising though but I wouldn't buy it again because I have other moisturisers that do the same but have a more appealing scent to me. I found that towards the end, little pieces that broke off I could use a bath melts
This is a really yummy fruity berry bubble bar. I love that it's so big I can easily get 6 uses out of one of these. The smell is so yummy and stays on the skin after you get out of the tub. Heaps of bubbles!!!
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Three Gold Rings bubble bar

I'm not really into this bubble bar. There is something about the smell that hasn't won me over. It's not a bad smell, it smells really clean. Definitely not a favourite. Apart from that, I am able to get 3-4 uses out of one of these and heaps of bubbles. It also gives a light gold shimmer to the water which is nice.
I never thought I'd like a solid shampoo but one day I was in Lush and thought... why not. I would be willing to say that this is one of the best shampoo's I've ever used. I even got my sister to use it who is a hairdresser and she even said it was really good. It makes my hair feel really clean without stripping any natural goodness and it seems to stay clean longer when I use it. I did try it on its own without conditioner as it says it's a 2 in 1 but I felt that my ends definitely needed extra moisture so I still use a conditioner on the ends with this.
LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is one of my favourite Lush soaps that I always must have in my stash! The smell is incredible and I haven't had any problems with it drying out my skin. I always feel so clean after using it and the smell lingers on my skin... yum!
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic
courtneyk01 1/5/2012 3:06:00 AM
I really liked the smell of this ballistic but when I used it, the smell wasn't strong enough and didn't linger at all. This might be good for some but I prefer my ballistics to have a nice smell that stays on my skin for a while. Other than that, it made the water foamy and was quite moisturising.
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Melting Marshmallow Moment

I really like the smell of this and think it's really cute but I found it wasn't really worth it. It did moisturise a bit but I find I get the same amount of moisture from some bubble bars and bath bombs and they're more fun. Out of the melts I've tried, this is definitely not a favourite
