Self Tanners -St.Tropez - Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse
gandolfwizard25 2/23/2013 2:38:00 AM
I like this tan, it's a bit on the sticky side for a mousse, but it gives a nice natural looking tan. The thing I don't like about the dark formula is the first day it has quite a greeny tinge to it, however this seems to disappear after the first shower. Must just be part of the colour guide. The original formula is a bit light for the sort of tan I want but has a nicer overall colour.
I really love this lipstick. It is a medium pink with a subtle hint of mauve/fuchsia to it, with a lovely matte finish. I sort of discovered this by accident and just adore it. Makes my lips look plumper.

This brush is perfect! I wet the brush and apply a matte black colour (usually blackout from naked2) along my lower lash line. It creates a perfect, no mess, defined line. I also love this for my eye brows. It's just everything I want in a small angled eyeliner brush .This is my second one and will keep repurchasing I imagine it would be good for gel liner too - but I just dont wear it.

The perfect attention grabbing coral red lipstick. This would look exceptionally amazing on someone with plumper lips than me. Absolutely love it.
This blush is one of my favourites. It is such a pretty light bright pink and I love the way it looks on me when I am tanned. It isn't the most pigmented of Mac blushes but is certainly buildable. Love it!
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

I was disappointed when I first received this brush. It is of impeccable quality like Mac brushes are known for; very soft bristles, no shedding whatsoever & fine quality handle. I just find this brush to be too small and not dense enough to really be used for anything. Not really fluffy enough in my opinion for blush application, and I already own the 109 for contouring which works better. The sigma version of this brush looks slightly bigger and more dense, but I havent purchased that one yet. EDIT: After using this brush a bit more, the bristles have spread out and the brush has become more fluffy. I think it was just so compacted from being in the sleeve! Now that the brush is a little bigger and more fluffy I can make use of it for my blush and contour and it works quite well :)
I just bought this perfume and love it, this is my new signature scent!!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

First of all, everyone has different skin types and compositions and its impossible for one product to work wonders for all. Go to the Clinique counter and get a sample, That's what they're there for. I wouldn't recommend this for oily skin. I personally love this moisturizer. It's light weight and absorbs into my skin quickly. My skin is so smooth when using this on a daily basis. It's a great base for makeup too. I also like cliniques moisture surge
I really love this perfume, it smells classy, romantic and "good quality" if that makes sense - it doesn't smell like a cheap body spray like some perfumes do. I just adore the bottle too I can't stop touching it!
This is my favourite MAC brush that I've bought so far. It looks scary in the pan but comes out such a beautiful colour on my face and it gives me a really nice glow (without looking glittery) that the matte blushes can't do for me. In my opinion a highlighter is not really needed when using this blush, nor is a contour - it's just the perfect all round colour to put along the cheekbones for the perfect look. It's much more pigmented than my other MAC blushes too, another reason why I love it.
I LOVE THIS BRUSH! I will never use any other brush again for my foundation. So soft, dense and gives a flawless application. And such a bargain too.
Self Tanners -Fake Bake - flawless self tan liquid

This self tanner is amazing! I think the best tan applications are achieved with a mitt and the one that comes with this product is very high quality and doesn't shed. It provides a very even beautiful coloured tan. My favorite thing about this product is that it is instant and dries quickly, no waiting around with a sticky tan for hours. You can put it on, get dressed and go with a fabulous looking tan. The only bad thing about this product is that so much of it washes off after the first shower, no matter how long you leave between application and shower. If you don't mind applying a lot and applying every few days (which isn't too bad considering it's such an easy quick process) then it's really not too bad. Overall love this product; pleasant smell, beautiful colour. So easy to apply and streak free. Very good value for money too. Most self tanning companies make you buy the mitt separately but this one is included, along with gloves. Perfect little kit.
Shampoo -Joico - Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo

I LOVE the shampoo and conditioner. I can't find it for less than $26 per bottle in Australia which sucks, but I pay it anyway because it's worth it. It turns your hair into that beautiful ashy blonde colour that most of us spend so much time trying to get. It makes it fairly soft and healthy looking too. I only leave it on for 5 minutes each (shampoo then conditioner) and it does an amazing job for me. Love love love it.
