THIS IS SO AMAZING. I've seen so many Youtube beauty gurus rave on and on, but I was worried that it wouldn't suit me since I am a darker skintone than them. Boy was I wrong! Absolutely amazing pigments, definetely a must-have product for me now for the rest of my life.
I got a little one from a Stila 'Kitten' gift pack from Mecca and this smells so delicious! It smells along the lines of warm, caramel popcorn. Lovely colour, but it is a sticky lipgloss where your hair will get stuck. Overall an alright lipgloss!
On my list of 'to buys' is a frosty pale pink lipstick (which is probably gonna be Saint Germain) and an orange one to last me through Summer. The colour really suited my tan skin and I got so many compliments on how my lips were so 'vibrant' and that they 'popped'! The only thing is that the colour does go eventually and it stains your lips a little bit. But it brightened up my New Years and I'll definetely be wearing this to parties!
I'm kind of on the halfway mark on this product. This is my 2nd primer I've bought, the first was a drugstore and the third was a high end primer. Those two really dissappointed me but this one is alright. I've stuck with this primer because it seems to hold my make up together longer than the others. What I really don't like about this is the packaging of the product. Sure, the glue stick form is cute, but not cute when you can't see how much product is left in the tube until one day it just runs out! This will probably be a primer that I'll go back to if everything else fails me.
I randomly came across Big W selling a little satchet of this for $1. So I bought it, thought nothing of it. But it works wonders! After washing off the mask, my blemishes have noticeably reduced - definitely buying the full item the next time I'm shopping.
Got my first pedicure about a month ago overseas, and got this on my toes. I took a risk and chose a pale pink, and it turned out pretty well! The colour is perfect for Spring and Summer and it's lasted weeks on without chipping or anything! Definetely purchasing it.

This was one of the first eyeshadows I've ever bought, and it's amazing! Great for everyday wear, lovely pigmentation and you can dress this up or down with different colour combinations. It's lasted me for over a year and its perfect to wear everyday to school!

I bought the color correcting base - my first purchase from Estee Lauder. I stuck with this primer for about 4 weeks, but I just absolutely hate it. It's a musturd-y colour that is just so slimy and slippery that my make up completely slides off, my face gets extremely oily and my fingers are left all slimy from applying the makeup. Really, really disappointed and for such a high price for this.

BEST MAKEUP WIPES EVER! Swipe all over your face and it just removes everything - waterproof mascara, not-going-anywhere eyeliner, lipstick, everything! I've tried the cheap drugstore ones, liquid removers, and this is by far the best. The only thing I probably don't like is that I buy the little plastic packs with the re-sealable tab and it starts to curl and unstick, leaving me with some towelettes dry and unusable. I haven't been able to find a box one in Sydney yet like the picture above, but I'll keep searching!
Bought this the first time I visited the Benefit counter. The lady was lovely, and gave me a whole makeover with all their products. I'm not one for rosy pink blush because of my blemishes and uneven skin, so I prefer wearing no blush. In the store, it looked a subtle hint of blush on my skin that looked very natural, but when I got home it had all gone! I've been trying to use this, but on my skin (NC40) it never shows up! Probably not for those who are pretty tanned then. The smell is very floral-y, and it kinda makes me feel a bit nauseous smelling it up close (probably because I don't like floral perfume/smells). But as the lady told me in the store, you can use it as eyeshadows, so I guess I'll be doing that then!
The last time I wore fake eyelashes was two years ago! So when I decided to jump back on the bandwagon, I got these lashes to wear for my friend's birthday party. I got so many compliments! They may look way too dramatic in the packaging, but they're very natural with a subtle hint of "look-at-me!". The pricing is also great, for AUS$18, they're almost the same price as drugstore eyelashes, with better quality for an extra $3. Definetely going back to MAC to start my fake eyelash collection now!
