Luuurve this foundation. It melts like butter and is a dream to blend. I love it even more now that I finally found the correct colour match for my face (I20). Initially I bought O20 and while it was OK, it was a tad too yellow on my fair skin. Love the packaging too, very stylish and convenient. The only con: coverage is only light to medium so it barely conceals my freckles..
I haven't used this mask for a while and have just rediscovered it. So I put it on my face.. OUCH!! Now I remembered why I stopped using it in the first place. It really HURTS to take this thing off. It's more like an all-over facial wax than a whitening mask. What whitening?! Didn't do anything for my freckles. The only thing it does is remove ALL my facial hair. If that's what I was after, I'd buy wax strips instead.. So disappointed. And hurt. Ouch~
Twinkle is peachy gold in the tube, it's like a more golden version of Ginger - although I never saw it that way until Ginger was released several months ago.:) Surprisingly, it doesn't wash me out like other glosses with a lot of gold in them. And glossimers are my favourite l/g due to their wonderful texture. If only they have more colours available here in Aussie!
My very first multiple, and I think I won't be buying more. Great quality, but I don't like other colours.:) Portofino is peachy pink with a hint of shimmer. You get a LOT of product for the price you pay (around 10g, which is even more than the standard 7g for stick foundations!) but like with most products (foundation & powders excepted), I would prefer it to come with less product but a cheaper price. I mean, who would be able to finish the stick before you either get bored of it or it goes off. We all have so many m/u, but only one face.*sigh* What a waste. That aside, Portofino is very pretty and if I ever lose it, I would probably repurchase.
Very pretty peachy pink with golden shimmer.. Others have described the colour better than me.:) Like most, I found this to be a peachier version of Orgasm. DT was my latest NARS purchase, but it could not surpass my very first love, Orgasm!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

This was my very first moisturiser - I used it about 10 years ago. My skin is combo, leaning towards dry. I chose Clinique because it was marketed as a product line that's suitable for sensitive skin, being fragance-free and hypoallergenic. BIG MISTAKE! It dehydrated my skin even more, but at that time I had no idea that it was due to the moisturiser - I thought I simply had super-dry skin and had to live with it. Then I changed skincare.. And my skin has been great since then. So to give this product 1 lippie is already too generous, I would've given it a negative -100 if possible. LOL
Very good quality lipliner and I love the fact that it comes with a lipbrush on the other end of the pencil. Unfortunately, the colour is waaaay too dark for this LLL/FFF. I really don't think Chanel should call this 'Nude', the name is very misleading!
The perfect peach colour! It's intense enough that I don't have to wear a lippie underneath. It also doesn't streak, unlike its sister Volage.
This is probably the only bronzey l/g I own. The colour in the tube is really what you get on lips, at least for me. Quality-wise, it's very good - just like most glossimers. Colour-wise, it's not really for me (LLL/FFF, yellow undertones), I find it a tad too brown.
This is the best YLBB colour on me. It's a rosey-nude colour with no shimmer, perfect to daytime or at night with smokey eyes. Very sexy!
The colour is very intense pink with a hint of orange-gold. A very strong colour that has to be worn with neutral eyes. It's perfect for spring / summer!
Ooh.. This is soo pretty both in the tube and on lips!! Of course it's basically clear with blue shimmers, so I have to wear this on top of a lippie. It makes my lips look so luscious, in a nice way - not OTT! Too bad it's LE so I hope I never lose this.
Can't believe I haven't reviewed this. This is my fave MAC lipglass ever. It's mauvish pink with tons of gold shimmer. It actually shows up quite pink on me, but more brownish gold on my friend. So it really depends on your colouring. And it doesn't streak! Most l/g streaks on my pigmented lips, so this is a very important factor for me.
Prrr looks pretty in the tube.. But on my pigmented lips, it's just way too frosty and streaky. I have since passed it on to my sister, hoping that she has better luck with it.
Samoa Silk has amazing texture, just like other Veluxe e/s. It's quite pigmented as well. But I really don't think matte shadows work for me since they always look so flat. I always need to wear a shimmery base underneath to counteract its flatness..
