Love this stuff. I use liquid eyeliner every day, which tends to crack. These don't: I have the black, purple and brown. They are easy to apply to the brush, apply to your eyes, don't smudge all day and don't crack. They are a dream come true- and that price! Made in Europe! What's not to love? Get onto the Essence bandwagon- for those in Aus, Target carries a sporadic supply so check your local.
Loose Powders -Australis - Ready Set Go Finishing Powder

Love this stuff! Have used for about 2 years now. Mattifies skin beautifully and is basically invisible- perfect for a more natural finish. Lasts forever too. Only drawback is it often clouds into fine particles if stirred up directly before opening, so I have to be careful with storage. Have stocked up on lots in case it gets discontinued
Totally obsessed with MOR as a native Aus brand. Love Marshmallow, although everyone always asks what smells like pink musk sticks when I wear it. Yum
I actually got this as a hand me down, but its the best black pencil I've ever used!! Goes on beautifully smooth, smudges easily but conversely lasts a long long time! The colour is consistent and the pencil a joy to use. Will buy again.
Yes, I tend to agree its more suited to tanned skin, my mum is darker than me and I ended up giving this lovely blush to her. Love most of chi chi products, I've found that 'love you long time' blush suits my pale skin. Nice packaging, shame it's a tad dark for me
I got this as part of the 'just in case' kit and I actually think it works, with visible effects! Shame about the price (particularly in Australia) but i will probably repurchase off Ebay. Brightens and firms, I like it so far.
I was expecting great things from this ( i got it as part of the 'just in case' kit) but it stained my fingers more than my cheeks, and didn't appear to absorb onto my face when i was wearing even the tiniest hint of primer. I had to use heaps to get any colour at all. Bourjois lip tints give a better effect and better choice of colour for a fraction of the price.

Wow- i absolutely love this! I was pretty skeptical about it, but it really does make your skin glow, like with a slight iridescence but nothing too OTT. I use the brightener on the tip of my nose and under the eyes, and the bronzer to contour the cheeks. Makes my skin look amazing, my current HG powder set
Love this stuff. Had been sneaking some of my mum's, love the matte texture and staying power during the day. Hasn't broken me out. I have no problem with the scent, and got it cheap off Ebay.
Absolutely love this. I agree the Bourjois is underrated. Goes on very smooth, matte and long lasting. The colour is even and intense, and the smell is divine
Love the smell of this blush! Really pretty colour, a little on the pricey side if you can't get it on sale. Packaging is very cute

like it, and the packaging. Pigment is ok, I find the sponge tips difficult to work with. I like using all four at once.
Im an absolute disciple of dry shampoo and rave to everyone who will listen. I use it every second day on my very oily hair and it's a big lifesaver. However Batiste is cheaper and for some reason Klorane gives me either little white specks of residue or dandruff for the day??? Not sure if anyone else has that problem. I like both brands, but yes they are pricey due to my constant use. I can't stand greasy hair and this stuff is miraculous

People seem polarized on this one, but I have to say I love the definition provided by this mascara. It gives me volume, curl, separation and it doesn't flake. I think the little bristles work well.

It's ok, feels kind of light though... I really cannot get over that smell... it reminds me of old lady perfume... very strong.
