price : dirt cheap! i can't believe how cheap this was when i bought it! only NZ$16 and 20% off promotion so i got this for NZ$13. i decided to try because i was desperate for a new mascara and the packaging is just really eye-catching! im liking this more than my lancome, estee lauder, and shiseido ones. Because: it can be natural-looking and dramatic as you make it, i find this super lengthening, average volumizing. I have average fragile lashes and they hardly clump or flake from this mascara. I use the shorter bristles for my first coat for volume then the long bristles of the brush for length and seperation. the brush is kinda annoying when it comes to my bottom lashes so i use a different mascara for them. Highly recommended.
Powder -Elizabeth Arden - Pure Finish Mineral Makeup

I would buy this product again. Because: -no breakouts -good matching -non cakey/chalkey (if the right amount is applied) -sheer coverage i use this over my tinted moisturizer on a daily basis and it looks great! just the right coverage i need. this does say "pure FINISH" which means it shall set your foundation. so don't expect a full coverage by itself because it won't do the job.
first of all, i don't know what primers are suppose to do so i don't know how to rate it. but i gave it 4 lippies because: -it has a nice smell -the bottle is super cute -you can control the amount so well i have read many reviews on primers, and from what i read- primers shall give your foundation a long-lasting, and control oil. My foundation does last with this primer. But my face still gets oily during the day (i have normal/combination skin) Since i live in New Zealand, which Benefit makeup is no where to be found unless i order it online. so i won't be repurchasing. however, i would buy it again if there is a Benefit store here :)
Mascara -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

Nice packaging, nice mascara wand/brush, nice mascara formula which is not too runny and not too dry, nice colour, nice staying-power. Maybe this did lengthen the look of my lashes just a little but doesnt give much volume. Overall, good mascara :)
I had to choose between this photoready foundation and the colorstay. I chose this because the packaging is better and i don't really care about the lasting of it. I like this product because of sheer-medium coverage and the dewy finish. I dont find the glitter of the foundation a problem because it doesnt glow all over my face at all times, i actually found the shimmery stuff quite helpful for a (natural) non-cakey look. However, i did break out a little. My opinion, if you use this foundation, don't set it with powder otherwise it will turn a little cakey and dry, and don't set it with translucent powder, it might make the glitter worse, and don't use other "matte-looking" makeup with this because this foundation sets a natural-glow. I suggest, liquid bronzer, light blush and concealer if you like. I might buy this again if I don't find a better foundation.
i would recommend this product. no breakout problem so far. i also use this as a blush/bronzer on my cheekbones to make them stand out. this can be used by itself but i tend to use this over my liquid foundation.
i was using the hypnose precious cells and that was also good. but i had to by another mascara since the precious cells was running out. i had to decide between the hypnose and lancome dolly lashes. i tried doll lashes on my left eye and hypnose on my right. the results i saw was the doll lashes did not lift my curls or give me the volume i wanted. while my right eye had more effect and volume but not much length. so i went with the hypnose and im happy with its buildable volume.

i decided to buy this because of the vibrating brush which i found really catchy. i have got thin, medium-lengthed lashes, as soon as i applied this mascara my lashes were incredibly long and volumed. i also like this because it is runny which means i can go back and layer my lashes a couple of times before it dries. really cool mascara!!!
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup

i bought this from a make up clearance for NZ$10 (real cheap). didn't really expect much from this product as i bought it in shade 001 which is not my colour because im medium toned. but when i applied it one morning, it really blended into my medium skin which surprised me alot. the coverage is sheer-medium but i like it because i don't like heavy foundation.
i really like this foundation. personally i find this as a light weight foundation because when i apply this it feels like there is nothing on my face. the coverage is light-medium but im pretty sure it is buildable. the liquifying screen is quite styley so i rated the packaging 4/5. so far no break out problems. i bought this from a make up sale so will definitely go back and buy more before it is gone.
i have this in brown. good colour but a bit pricey for a little skinny stick. i bought this for $40NZ which is quite expensive. but loving this so far.
the bottle is sooooo cute! i love it. no glitter or diamonds sparkling on my face all the time anymore. i also have this in Posy Tint which is pink. the colours are really pretty too!
this is good. maybe not to much coverage but good for sheer coverage.
i just bought this foundation at a store after the lady at the counter recommended it. i don't need to cover anything much so this foundation is perfect because it has a light coverage. so far i have no breakout problem. it is a bit pricey but really happy with this at the moment.
this is really good! it is hydrating, light coverage, shiny and feels nice to put on. i have normal skin but it is a little bit dry in the morning so i gave this a try and it really did hydrate my skin, felt like i moisturized it when i didn't. but i won't recomend this to people who need lots of coverage, since i have nothing to hide, this is the one for me. the only reason im not buying this product again is because i would like to try a wide range of foundation otherwise i'll definitely come back to this one.
