Hair -Unlisted Brand - MACADAMIA NATURAL OIL Deep Repair Mask
kafee 3/31/2013 4:49:00 AM
I bought this on online as the ones sold in Australia are very over priced. When i tried it the first few times, I didn't see a difference in my hair. My hair is naturally straight, but since dying my hair, its been frizzy especially towards the ends. After 2 weeks using this product, my hair was noticeably shinier, softer and tangle-free. I loveee the smell too. My tip is to don't apply the product near the roots. My hair felt very heavy and oily when I did that. Other than that I would definitely buy again. I have the 250 ml one, and from how I've been using it, I think it's going to last me at least 3 more months.
Love the scent. I didn't know about this perfume until a friend recommended it to me. I also fill my travelo with this fragrance so I could use it on the go. It has an elegant smell to it, not too sweet which I really like.
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey
kafee 11/30/2012 7:15:00 AM
I've been wanting to try this product for some time and since it just recently landed in Australia, I thought I might give it a go. The price is around $17 each but there was a buy one get one free offer so it is a pretty good deal. After reading many blogs and reviews, I chose the Honey shade and it was PERFECT! Love the colour. I would say that it is a warm dusty rose colour, perfect for my complexion. As for being a lip stain, it does a pretty good job and lasts hours (though i do reapply, just out of habit, even though i don't need to). If I was to compare it to my revlon lip butters which I have been using daily, I would choose this product over the lip butters just because it still moisturises and lasts much longer. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
I bought mine on asos along with 2 other bourjois blushes. I've been wanted to try it for a long time and i've got to say, that I LOVE IT. My pink came out as a bright coral pink which is really nice. I would initially say that i would wear this at night however after you can wear it during the day. What I do is apply it, wait for it to change colour, then close your lips onto a piece of tissue to blot. This leaves behind a more subtle colour which is also very pretty, more suitable for day wear. I really like the brush applicator, and although it is a little sticky than other lip glosses I have, it lasts much longer. YES, i would purchase it again!
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
kafee 8/27/2012 5:30:00 AM
I have pretty bad dark circles and every concealer I've tried, I've never truly liked. UNTIL....I bought this concealer in shades NEUTRALIZER and LIGHT. The first shade I got was in Light and when I tried it, it was alright but it didn't cover up my dark circles as I thought it would. I then decided to purchase the Neutralizer shade from Ebay (because they don't sell this shade in Australia ). From the maybelline site, it said to apply the neutralizer shade under your concealer. I applied liquid foundation then neutralizer then the light shade over it. And it worked! :) So happy and yes will definitely buy again!
This is probably the worst hair dye ever. It smells so bad, I even have shivers remembering it now. The result was really disappointing, All of the colour ended up near my roots and gave me a very uneven hair colour. It stained my scalp and took me a week to get the colour off my scalp. Looks like I'm using my loreal hair dye for any future hair colouring. Will never buy again.
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Maybelline Coverstick Corrector Concealer

I tried to use this to cover up my dark circles, however after a while, it was worse, my dark circles were even more visible. After a few hours, it appeared very chalky patchy. So I tried it again, making sure I applied a good amount of moisturiser before the concealer. Did not make much difference. Would not buy again.
This product works fine for me, it shatters perfectly. For those who might be having problems, did you put a base coat (use your preferred colour) THEN apply the shatter nail polish on top of that? Great nail polish, however it was a bit pricey and didnt look as nice/ flattering as it did on other people.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
kafee 8/2/2012 10:24:00 AM
This is the best heat protecting spray I ever used! It made a noticeable difference to my hair. The hair feels a lot smoother and my ends are less dry than before. The smell is not bad compared to my previous hairspray, it actually smells pretty good, and is not overwhelming when I use it. I spray this before I blow dry and again before I style my hair. Love it! would buy again :D :D
I actually really like to use this as a top coat. Gives are really shiny finish. My first reaction was that it was much more runny and is not thick as my previous top coats. However application is easy and love the finish. My only complaint is that it takes forever to dry properly:( Would buy it again.
I love it!! I reach for this every time I go out. I really like the neutral shades available on this palette and is great whether I want an everyday look or a intense smoky eye look. The great thing about this palette is that it lasts ALL DAY LONG!! :D I don't even have to use primer (because I tend to forget). I get a lot of compliments whenever I use this palette and would recommend this to everyone :)
I found that this was far too light for my skin. This was my first bbcream and although I use it occasionally during winter, I tend to reach for my Missha Perfect Cover BB cream in no23, because I find that the shade suits me better. However the texture is really nice and soft against my skin, just wished it came in a variety of shade though. The pink packaging is really cute and unique and the product comes out nicely. Would not buy again though due to shade.
I got this in shade 23 (natural beige) which suited my skin but is a little bit too light for me. I have used this bbcream on a daily basis, everyday to uni, and it provides a nice natural finish to my complexion. It's been a year now since I've tried it and I still love it!! I would say that I would not use this for night events especially for taking photos because of the spf (made my skin look ghost white in photos). However I would recommend this to everyone as an everyday product!
Liquid -Max Factor - Xperience Weightless Foundation
kafee 7/14/2012 9:25:00 AM
I got the shade Fair sugar cane 55 and this was the first foundation I actually bought. I've had this for over a year now, and rarely touch it after a few tries. I find that the texture is not smoothe on my face, but rather dry and almost powdery against my skin. The shade was also the wrong choice for me, and found that it was way too light when I tried it at home. I would say that this foundation isn't for people with warm undertone.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
kafee 7/14/2012 9:16:00 AM
First lip butter i got was in this shade PEACH PARFAIT! I've seen so many beautiful swatches of this that I decided to get it on my trip to Hong Kong as it wasn't yet available in Australia. This shade is definitely more pink than peach, which I actually preferred. I have used it for months now, and its always my 'go to' lip product whenever I go out.
