These lipsticks are fantastic! I have these in "in the nude" and "all about cupcake". These are better than my nude rouge dior and clinique chubby stick! The packaging is very cheap but the contents are fantastic! They contain no shimmer/glitter whatsoever, the texture is very buttery and sort of sheer, but buildable to a more intense color. Super hydrating, masks dry flakes on the lips and has a glossy finish. Smells like bubblegum.
This is perfect for eyebrows! a 1000 times better than my identical product from Bobbi Brown. This product combs eyebrows perfectly into place, makes them look very neat and groomed, holds all day and eyebrows are still soft to the touch! I've stopped using my $55 product for a $3 one. Yeah, i still cant believe it either
i fell in love with the colour in the bottle, and stupidly bought it wothout trying it on. The packaging is stunning, fantastic quality (feels unbreakable and unscratchable), closes with a click, big amount of product inside. However, it goes on very sheer, the texture is quite liquid and not "goopy" enough to provide enough coverage to show all the beauty of its color and to have decent staying power. the fine pink, gold and silver shimmer run into the lines on the lips, as, again, the lipgloss isnt thick enough to hold them in place. it is super moisturizing, is very cpmfortable to wear and lips feels protected both during and after wear. Stays on for barely 2 hours without eating/drinking. Not sticky whatsoever! The fragrance is very subtle, smells like sugar out of a packet (i know, weird). Will keep using it for its lip care properties until it runs out, but will not purchase again. Persons who like to wear their lipgloss in a super thin layer just for some wet shine might find this product wonderful
Lipstick -Christian Dior - Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor

i found this product quite average. i have this in beige indescise, which is a nude with pink undertones. it is a colour of natural lips, not a concealer corpse-like sort of a colour which wont make you look washed out or like your lips have disappeared from your face. that is the only definite plus. i understand that different shades have different textures, but this one tends to run into fine lines on the lips, its buttery but doesnt moisturize (it sits on top without moisture sinking in) and lips are dry after the lipstick is gone. it isn't long lasting at all, won't survive lunchtime and will fade condiderably after 1.5 hours without eating or drinking. its opaque, without any shimmer, which i like. the smell could be better for a high-end lipstick - it smells like old lpstick with some sour perfume in it. i also think that the packaging is average and weak (thin plastic), could be prettier. its alright, but for $50 i expected much more. won't buy again
girls with oily skin AND large pores save your money! when i first put it on it looked lovely, matte, didnt hide my pores but didnt accentuate them, looked glowing from within. But in 20 mins- oh horror! it fell into all my pores and made them look like MASSIVE holes which were visible from a mile away (mine are not actually that big and noticeable without makeup) AND it made me look like i have wrinkles!!! and im 19!!! it made me look like i have wrinkles around my mouth where i smile and around my nose. wth. i tried using it over foundation and by itself, the outcome is the same. but i found a use for it - over under eye concealer and it makes that area much lighter, brighter and glowy, also stops the concealer from creasing throughout the day.
a super-expensive synthetic plastic brush which bristles look tangled. doesnt pick up much product. i bought it to go with meteorites perles as i thought it would be best suited for the use of the powder but no. pointless.

disappointed. it definately should be prohibited to use by gals with oily skin. all it does is basically cover your face in tiny pieces of glitter which are noticeable close-up but are not clearly visible from 0.5 metre away onwards. yes, it looked nice on but nothing special, i couldnt see the amazing healthy glow that others swear by. this is not mattifying at all, and having an oily face - adding shimmer/ glitter to it doesnt help at all! it looks 3 times more oily/shiny than getting an oily face without meteorites on. also, this glitters like a disco ball in the sun, "christmas-sirit styles". The smell is nice, to me it doesnt smell like flowers/violets but rather like something clean as in washing powder. the pretty can of meteorites is now just a decoration for my dressing table.
i dont know how i lived without this powder before. this keeps me shine-free for HOURS if i set my makeup with it, it is VERY matte and conceals my enlarged pores. it gives a lovely velvety finish and is not cakey if you use it for touch-ups throughout the day. the packaging is quite cheap but the mirror is quite comfortable and its a good a good size and lightweight to carry in rhe handbag. its forever a must-have for my very oily skin, heaps better than jurlique citrus silk finishing powder!
Lip Gloss -Yves Saint Laurent - Golden Gloss #7 - Golden Amber

The thing that attracted me to this product the most was the smell. i am absolutely in love with it. it smells sort of like something in between pine forest air and sundried apples. i find it really fresh and earthy, not lollie and vanilla smell like most lip products have which im so sick of. in fact, i think this is the best smell a cosmetic product can possibly have <3 the packaging is pretty but nothing special - a lot of even drugstore brands all have the same square tubes with a shiny lid. the beush is perfectly sized and perfect softness/firmness to apply the gloss easily and comfortably. it lasts about 2-3 hours without eating or drinking, comes off easily. moisturizes the lips very well :) as for looks it looks heaps better in the tube than on. it is a 100 times sheerer on the lips than what i expected it to be and diesnt look like anything special.. just an almosh clear shimmering lip gloss with no real colour.. i will use it until i finish it because if the smell and moisturizing properties but wont be repurchasing.
this is quite meh. because there were testers available at the store i i picked the one i thought smelled best - the "smoothing cherry" and i really do love the smell. it doesnt smell like cherry at all it smells purely like lychees. it does a poor job at moisturising. lips do feel smooth while its on but it does no long term repair whatsoever. it stays on for barely an hour and my lips are dry again. wont be repurchasing
i do like this product but unfortunately i cant wear it out of the house. i think this would be more than a perfect foundation for girls with drier skin as this is super hydrating and moisturising. as you probably already guessed, those features dont go well together with my oily skin. i find the coverage quite light and the smell is real nice. i wear it on days when i have people over at my place so it looks like im wearing no foundation :) it does make my face way more rested which i absolutely love, but if i wear it out of the house, the sun and heat make my skin oil up much faster so i wear other long staying foundations and set with powder to last long hours. great little gem, but not for me :)
After a long search i found my HG lip colour product! I am head over heels in love! i cant believe how much money i've spent on drugstore products and chucked them out, well 10 times more than what i've spent on this miracle! i got this in the color "garnet desire" no.15, at first i was looking for a liquid lipstick but no other high-end company seemed to have the colour i wanted- a red which is not too bright, super pigmented and with gold undertones, not too glossy... this was exactly it. i find this gloss huge (a LOT of it in the tube which would last absolutely ages). the packaging is so chic and classy i would be delighted to take it out of my handbag in the ladies' to apply and make the girls jealous! i have light to medium toned skin with yellow undertones and hazel eyes, and this lipcolour makes ny whole face light up! it makes my eyes pop and the greenness in my eyes really stand out (odd, isnt it? didnt know a LIP GLOSS could do that! it is so pigmented you only need one layer as it is quite opaque, it is super moisturizing and stays on for hours and hours (thats without eating) and keeps moisturizing for the whole time. i often get flaky lips no matter how much balm i put on, but this hides any possible dryness on your lips and makes them look perfect. it smells like cherry pips and amaretto, which is heavy and fresh at the same time but happy, smells like absolute luxury (well, it is).
This is a big waste of money and hopes for me, as it costs $25 in Australia and does not increase the size of my lips at all! it just stings and burns, and together with the smell it makes me feel a little sick. a have medium size lips to start with, and all it does is makes them more red and has a clear glossy shine to it like any clear lip gloss. plus burns. also the packaging looks much better in poctures than in real life, the tube is tiny and plastic, the walls of it are thin and im sure if someone steps on it it would get squashed straight away.
Very average mascara. not good and not bad. first coat doesnt do much, but the second one seems to pack a lot of mascara on the lashes. it clumps them together a bit, and i find it really hard to reach the lashes at the outer corners on the eyes as the brush is so big and bulky, but after a lot of effort i get it somehow. it will not make the lashes any longer, this mascara is volumizing ONLY, which is a minus for me. i won't throw it away, i'll finish tge tube but wont buy it again. nothing special.
this was SHIT and such a rip off. i used it as directed and it did nothing apart from irritating my skin and making it very sensitive! it was supposed to be "gentle", but my skin isnt even a bit sensitive to start with! i found that benzoic acid creams found at drugstores work wat better than this, dont waste your money! also i personally found the smell quite off-putting and ridiculous - of course it smells like chemicals BUT the fragrance that they've put in is that of baby powder and nappy rash creams so every time after I put it on it felt like theres a baby's ass next to my face.
