This is one of my most used lipsticks. I absolutely LOVE it. Beautiful colour and all proceeds go to a good cause? Every lipstick wearing woman should have this one! Its a gorgeous shimmery mauvey/rosey brown that goes well with my pigmented lips. Its a lustre formula which I admit isn't the best formula. It's quite sheer but it does have colour so don't worry, something will show up! Its quite a versatile lipstick and because its so close to my lip colour, I can basically wear it with whatever e/s I want however, since it has shimmer, I'd wear it with matte e/s looks. I definitely recommend this lipstick to all women, of all colours and ages:)
I LOVE this cheek stain! Okay, I know that in the product, there is a lot of flecks of glitter but honestly, It doesn't really show up. I use my ELF powder brush and just swipe it a few times on the top and then I blend it onto my cheeks. The glitter transfer is minimal and the effect is gorgeous. I now can get beautiful rosy flushed cheeks without much effort. Its absolutely gorgeous, smells like lemonade and it lasts for at least 6-8 hours on me. I definitely you run, not walk, to get this product because it is limited edition and use a brush so the glitter transfer is minimal. I tried using my fingers and using the product straight on as well and thats how the glitter ended up on me but the brush was minimal. Its absolutely beautiful and will last me ages.
I LOVE this lipstick! Staying power is good, about 3-4 hours until it fades. I love the colour, shows up beautifully on my pigmented mauve lips. It looks sweet and innocent. it isn't too drying. I absolutely recommend this as a must-have lipstick for everyone! Especially lighter asians:)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in #249 Vanity [DISCONTINUED]

The shadows are buttery and smooth and quite pigmented. However, it doesn't show up as much as I would like on my darker lids. I would definitely buy this again, I really love WnW stuff. I wish they sold it here in AUS! [except the price would be raised 200-400% :(]
Its a beautiful palette, I agree with that. However, I like it, I don't love it like every other girl out there. It has many colours but I don't think it has everything for a nude look. Maybe I'm not applying the right colours, but more often than not, I will use one or two of the colours in this palette and grab 2 or 3 from another palette. The quality is good except sidecar has so much glitter fallout! I would put a tiny amount on on the centre of my lid and by the time I finished my foundation, the glitter would be all over my eyes. I'm glad I bought it but it really wasn't worth the hype. The case is super gorgeous though, aside from the sticker at the back. I liked the mini original primer potion and the brush that was given was okay, however, a 24/7 liner and maybe two small tiny eyeshadow brushes that is normally found in other palettes would've been a better option, especially since this is hailed as an all in one. The brush is fine, except its pretty much useless. It raised the price and value of the palette but I don't really know what to do with it. it's too thin and doesn't pick up enough eyeshadow to use on the lid, its too long for the crease and too big for under the brow. I use it for swatching mostly, however, i have to do 2-3 swipes to get the same amount of colour as an ELF eyeshadow brush that cost me $3. I would purchase this again, but not for a long time. Hopefully, UD might reconsider and put the 24/7 liner in this palette again. But most likely, I'll just pick up the Naked palette 2 instead of repurchasing this because it will last me ages as it isn't my most reached for.
I LOVE this blush. It's beautiful, glowy and natural looking! It's my favourite blush. it works with anything at all. I just wish the case was different and it wasn't so expensive! I also wish it lasted longer, it lasts around 6 hours for me. The sheen I get from it is just really pretty and it doesn't irritate my skin or enlarge my pores. I will keep buying this shade as long as I'm young enough to wear it=D

I LOVE this primer. It brightens up my eye area and shadows last all day long when I apply the primer correctly! I have occasionally have oily lids and I'm glad this is matte because it works well all the time! This should be used in small amounts, a dot as thick as the tip of a pen works best I would say. I have the new tube and I think it'll last me until next year!

This was so easy to use. Its smooth and creamy and it lasts a long time.
This is in my top 3 nail polishes [i own more 60 now]. Its such a beautiful bright blue... it reminds me of a really clear blue sky, a bit darker but its a beautiful colour nevertheless. My bf picked this out for me and I absolutely love it. it makes me skin look so much lighter! I wasn't too impressed with Zoya when I got it [i'm still not] but this colour is so damn beautiful, I don't mind getting bad wear out of it when I'm not using a 4 free top or base coat. This formula is one of the better ones of the Zoyas I have, took 2 coats for me to be satisfied with the finish. It was worth the high price I paid for it [in aus]
I received the full size from my mum for my 14th birthday and I've since gone onto the smaller 30ml bottle. It was my signature scent until I was given Gucci Envy me. its a sweet smell, I really love it. My bf liked it too and i always got compliments when I went out. its a sweet, fruity floral scent that works for under 25s. Too bad its very hard to find in Aus now.

My mum bought me this plus the mini. The shadows are silky smooth and apply like a dream. There is minimal fallout. The small shadow brushes work really well for me and I use the small end for my crease etc. It's full size and the case is beautiful. One of the most beautiful cases I've seen yet. I don't really like the pink but I love the other four colours. I use the ivory as a highlight for under my brows, the peachy/nude colour for a nice base beneath the other colours and I find it brightens up my eye area so sometimes, when i want a really natural bright look, I use it just by itself. I love the brown and the silver/taupe colour. I use the brown for my crease and sometimes on the lid but I love the silver taupe colour even more. I love using it on my crease because it looks really good and theres a slight shimmer that goes well when I do a neutral smokey eye or just with other neutral colours along the crease. Since I have asian eyes, I don't have that much lid area and doing the whole crease area looks funny to me, I do a slight wing kinda shape and looks really good with my eyes. I also use a glittery black shadow wet as a liner and that makes this look go from natural to night-time natural [can't describe it any better] I wouldn't buy this again because after nearly 2 years, my quint has still not even touched the pan [not even halfway!] and I still have the mini. Also, this was pretty expensive for me since I'm a student and don't work. But I definitely recommend this quint. It might seem a bit boring but sometimes, the most natural looks are the sexiest.
Awesome company. I can't sue the normal brands like clearasil, neutrogena etc because it makes my skin dry up and break out. But these masks work fantasically. I can buy them for a box of 10 for $12 au and I use them every 3 days or so. I use them before bed for around 30mins and use the leftover essence to rub onto my chest area. The moistursing lasts for at least 2 days and my skin is clearer after use (pimples go away or start disappaearing). Also whitens a bit and brightens up my complexion. I defintely recommend these wonderful masks but make sure they aren't black market fakes. Sasa.com has most of them:)
Too thick to apply evenly. the colour was gorgeous but its too thick. If it was thin enough, its too streaky, if its thick enough, it comes on in clumps. Takes a while to dry.
This is my first essie. I haven't worn it yet but I've swatched it. Its a magenta red that is nothing impressive. It is close to OPI's I'm not really a waitress but its more pink. No obvious shimmer, it can only be seen when looking very closely. I like the bottle design but the polish was kind of thin compared to OPI. The brush is also not that big of a hit with me. Its too thin and small. I mostly bought it for the name though. Although, i wouldn't really associate this colour with sex.
This is absolutely gorgeous vintage pink. Its not as holo as the other DS ones but still, in sunlight it sparkles like no tomorrow. I'm constantly checking my nails out when I'm outside. I have received so many compliments for this shade. Its a more mature pink, but its still very awesome and lovely. Recommended for any girls who want a pretty DS but don't mind lack of crazy holo^^
