My FAVOURITE eyeshadow of all time! I'm going to be so sad when this runs out in my Naked Palette because I use it almost everyday. Love the metallic finish, love the way it applies nice and smoothly, love the colour (obviously) and it just makes my brown eyes pop! Would definitely recommend, it is truly beautiful.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub
jenny90 2/20/2013 5:20:00 AM
Repurchased over and over again. A great scrub. It has very fine exfoliating beads that aren't too abrasive on the skin. Even my partner who has very sensitive skin can use it with no problems. Does a good job of exfoliating my skin and doesn't leave it with that tight feeling afterwards which I appreciate. I do use this daily and have found no problems with irration or break outs. Will continue to repurchase.
This is a repurchased item for me as I love it that much. I have the colour natural and it's just as the name suggests - its a natural pinky colour. The perfect nude for me as its a 'my lip but better colour'. I wear it everyday. Has good lasting power, no need to sharpen and affordable. Definitely make sure you have exfoliated your lips before you use and even use a lip balm beforehand and it won't be so dry on your lips. It has a bit of a sweet taste to it which I don't mind, and it has a very very slight tackiness to your lips but I think that's why it lasts so long on the lips. Doesn't bother me whatsoever. I definitely recommend the shade 'natural' to those of you who like MLBB colours.
It's okay, it's not amazing or a must-have in my opinion. Yes, it's cheap and pigmented but I find that because it has quite a pink/red undertone it just doesn't flatter my skin tone. I find that because it is so pigmented that if you're not careful it can apply patchy to the skin which is a bit of a pain to blend out. If you're fair skinned it might be too dark for you. In my opinion I think it's best suited for medium skin tones. I don't reach for it often and I can't say I recommend it. For the price, if you're curious it's not much of a finiancial risk to try.
An amazing powder that provides coverage. I use it to set my foundation and it works really well. I use light/medium and it has those yellow undertones that I'm always searching for. Doesn't look overly powdery on the skin, and the longer you wear it the more 'natural' it looks as it melts into your skin. Keeps my skin matte for several hours. Great little compact that's sturdy enough to leave in your purse for touch ups. As I said before, it provides extra coverage to your foundation if you use it to set your makeup which is great. Will definitely repurchase and I highly recommend it.
What a great foundation. Applies smoothly and has a good amount of coverage. I never was a fan of the original Colorstay but this is so different. It's as 'natural' as a foundation can look on my skin. Never looks cakey on me as I only apply a thin layer, though it still covers what I want it to. You get less product that other foundations but its such a good foundation I will still repurchase nonetheless. My only gripe is that they don't have many yellow based shades. I wear sand beige which is a great match for my skin but I can tell it needs to have more yellow tones to be absolutely perfect - so strong yellow undertoned ladies beware. Probably my favourite foundation ever. Highly recommended!
First off, as everyone has already said, the packaging sucks. I put mine into an old loose powder container that had a sifter. It's quite a messy product to use as its a loose powder, so as you can imagine powder flies all over the place. That being said, it is a nice powder. Finely milled and smooth. Doesn't apply patchy to my face at all. Although it is a translucent powder, I do notice that it leaves a little bit of a yellow tint to my face which I appreciate as I can never find a foundation that's as yellow as my skin. You definitely can see that you have powder on your face - it's not a natural looking powder at first. The longer you wear it the better it looks as your natural oils on your face will help it melt into your skin a little better. It does keep my face looking matte for several hours, even in summer. FYI, I use this to set my entire face, not just the under eye area. It does brighten my complexion. I'm undecided as to whether I will repurchase, but I still have a ton of powder left so I won't need to make that decision anytime soon. It's definitely a powder worth trying.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle SPF 15

I've been using this for a little while now and I have seen an improvement in my skin. Nothing drastic as I'm only 21, so I use this as a preventative measure. I have noticed that my skin is smoother and has less redness. The texture of my skin has improved too. When I get a breakout it clears up much faster than it used to. It's not a thick moisturizer and is quite emollient so it soaks in quickly. Your skin feels hydrated without having to slather a thick layer of cream on your face. I will repurchase.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

AMAZING!! Best mascara ever! Love the brush, great formula - not too wet, not too dry, doesn't flake or smudge, lengthens and volumizes, holds my curl, inexpensive! Could you ask for a better mascara?? It makes my lashes look amazing! I will continue to purchase this!
I so wanted to give this 5 stars! I recently got this mascara and I saw reviews on here saying that it smudges but almost all mascara reviews will say that. I've never has a mascara smudge on me before so I thought it wouldn't happen to me.....but it does. Only after having this on less than a few hours I've got black smudges under my eyes. It looks terrible. On the other hand the formula is nice and dry which is perfect for my lashes and the brush is great. I have to build up this mascara but its so worth it because it makes me look like I have 10x more lashes! I just wish it wouldn't smudge! I'll use up my tube but I won't be repurchasing for obvious reasons.
Not a fan. The formulation is quite wet. Ive had it for months trying to dry it out but it's still really wet. My favourite mascara is Maybelline Falsies and this is no where near as good. Does nothing for my lashes. Doesn't hold a curl and clumps quite badly for me. Wouldn't repurchase or recommend.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Bought this from my local 2 dollar shop in New Zealand. So cheap. A little stiff and rough at first but only after a few times it gets much softer. A nice size to reach your back too. I no longer get scaly looking legs and my whole body is so much softer. I wouldn't recommend using this on your face, I think it's too abrasive. I've had this for a couple of months and it's still going strong. Would repurchase and recommend to people who don't have super sensitive skin.
This is my night cream as I feel like its too thick for me during the day. I have combination skin and it makes my t-zone oily throughout the day so it's strictly a night product for me. It makes my skin so smooth and hydrated. I've never had any issues with it breaking me out. One negative thing I would have to say is that it has such a strong scent - smells like roses to me and to be honest it's hard to handle sometimes. The smell lasts on my skin too. But it's such a lovely moisturizer I will repurchase it in the unscented version next time.
I bought this as some girls on YouTube were saying it was a good contouring shade. First off, it's a very grey toned brown. I have yellow undertones in my skin and this just makes my face look dirty. I think I'm better suited with warmer products. I've tried it as an eyeshadow and it's okay but honestly this gets no use by me at all. I feel like it doesn't have much pigmentation at all and it feels really chalky. A huge miss for me. Luckily it wasn't too expensive.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

A really nice gel liner. Super black and easy to work with. The brush it comes with is pretty good too. I have had it for about a year and haven't noticed it drying out at all. Goes on smoothly and stays put for the whole day. My only complaint is that it's difficult to take off and sometimes I notice a bit of darkness around my eyes from excess product that hasn't come off - though it's nice to know it'll stay put throughout the day! Wouldn't repurchase as I find that felt tip pen liquid liners are more convenient and easier to use.
