Thought I'd switch to some more expensive brands of foundation there for a while, but dug this out of my cupboard the other day and realised just how much I miss it! The coverage is not as thick as some other stuff I've been using, but it doesnt matter because wearing this foundation makes me look more "natural" as the name of it suggests! Never had any issues with breakouts with this either, unlike my super expensive Bobbie Brown.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

Pretty happy with this actually, I'd previously been using the NYC translucent powder but it leaves a white sheen across my face and doesn’t actually seem to keep the shine at bay. This stuff however, I've got no white sheen and no oily face! I'm happy that I can now use up the rest of my incredibly expensive foundation which I had been thinking was a dud because it left me too shiny faced, but now, I can just dust some of the Dream Matte Powder over to correct the problem.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Yummy Plummy

Oh, what a lovely colour! Smells nice too, a bit like strawberrs n cream lollies. Don't be fooled by what the actual lipstick looks like as the colour it is totaly different once applied to your lips. To get a few examples, get on Google image search and type in "maybelline yummy plummy" this should give you a good idea of what it looks like on your lips. Cost me $14.39 from a discount chemist in Brisbane.

Not a bad brush, although I dont see the outstanding results as everyone else has gotten. Even though its got the rubbery pad, you still get static fly away hair if you run the brush through it too much.
Pressed Powders -New York Color - Pressed Translucent Powder

Gives me quite a white sheen, even after giving myself a light dusting of the stuff. Its ok I guess, however I'd probably go for a slightly tinted finishing powder next time to avoid the chalky face look.
Well, I'm not sure why this has been rated so highly, it doesnt really make that much of a difference. The quality of the pencil is really good though, the tip is really creamy and soft, therefore goes on really smoothly. Something else I dont like about it is that it irritates the heck out of my eyes, makes them feel a hot and itchy. Even after cleaning the product off before bed at night, my eyes wept all night and I had some major eye crusties in the corners when I woke up in the morning.
If your not a real fan of the super girly perfumes, this stuff is excellent. Totaly my fave fragrance out there! Goes good with the jeans & T-shirt look, however for a glam night out, I'd pick something a little more girly.
I bought this after seeing all the rave reviews it had on here, but I've got to say, it doesnt smell as nice as what people make it out to be. It smells like just another cheap body spray. I've smelt tins of Impulse which are much better! If you like the sweet lollie like smell, try out "Baby Doll" by YSL.

Stays on well, however there is a very limited colour range. Make sure you have some good makeup remover to get this stuff off!

Even after dusting translucent powder on my face after using this foundation, my face ramins stickey all day and it feels like it never really "sets" it comes off very easily and after wearing it during a hot day recently, I got the pleasure of expreriencing it melt off my face. Love the pump bottle and the colour range, but thats about where it stops.
