great deep brown, comes out very dark. has a nice sublte shimmer, good staple colour to use in crease, along lash line, to deepen other browns. blends well.
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

great setting powder, is perfectly translucent (just as long as you dont apply too much) great if you dont want to add colour to your foundation. *be careful of 'translucent' powders that arent white, this means they have pigmentation in them and therefore are NOT translucent. seems simple, but somehome brands still do it.
great value product! very cheap & good quality. i dont get the volume that i would expect from a volumizing mascara (i just do a few more coats) but i love the short bristled brush, makes it easy to apply for short lashes as well as long.
Good quality product, texture is fantastic. colour is odd, its not a skin colour more lavender/grey.. it smooths the lid nicely and eyeshadow applies like a dream. longevity isnt what id expect from a quality eyeshadow primer when there are such good ones on offer.
very average quality product. its intended for an eyeshadow base but is wayyy too thick, the eye area is delicate and should not have heavy products placed on it, let alone designed for it.. not impressed. i wouldnt recommend anyone buy this, but i have found a way of using it,, mixing it with my NP Set Eye Primer to thin it out and now it works a treat :)
Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

HG EYESHADOW PRIMER!!! comparable to Urban Decay Primer Potion, but MUCH cheaper. great light cream colour, intensifies eyeshadow colour and increases longevity all day and more, and its amazingly cheap - best value, love it! will definitely re-purchase.
great product, simple application, great longetivity, can be a bit drying, make sure you apply a hydrating balm prior to application. good deep blue-based red.
subtle gold shimmer gloss, great alone or layered :)
beautiful subtle, light pink/nude/natural gloss. very pigmented. can be a but drying, make sure you apply a hydrating balm beforehand. good longevity.
Lip Gloss -Napoleon Perdis - Lip Lacquer in Baby Lips

great natural lip gloss with some shimmer, unfortunately discontinued :( but its a great colour! like all lip laquers, THICK and STICKY which is great for longevity for special occasions.
i LOVE this gloss! perfect milky pink colour & i love that it has no shimmer. especially good to be paired with a smokey eye, goes on best over a lip treatment to stop it sinking into lines in your lips.. and worn by Kim Kardashian,, whats not to love :P *NOTE: i live in Australia, when i buy this direct from America, its quite cheap for me because our cosmetics are much more expensive! :(
natural colour with some shimmer, universally flattering, pigmented.. like all NYX glosses, SO CHEAP & such good quality <3 i love a bargain (ive noticed the mega shine glosses have one of three different smells; grape hubba bubba, cherry coke, or a sweet mintyness) and i love them all :D
as the name suggests, great natural colour! opaque, very similar to sponge cake, but sponge cake has some shimmer. smells delicious - like grape hubba bubba! i know some people may find that sickly, but i love it! like all NYX glosses, SO CHEAP & such good quality <3 i love a bargain (ive noticed the mega shine glosses have one of three different smells; grape hubba bubba, cherry coke, or a sweet mintyness)
I cannot believe how BLACK this is!! absolutely amazing! it claims to be waterproof, which it is,, as much as an eyeliner can be. goes on nicely. Compared to MAC's Fluid line I like this one better as it stays on my water line better, it is a thicker consistency, which is a bit more tricky to work with, but its so much BLACKER!! lol which i think is fantastic, great for photography.
Foundations -Napoleon Perdis - China Doll Foundation
missashleexoxo 5/2/2011 6:30:00 AM
Best full coverage foundation!!! says it sets to matte finish, just about, but i still set with powder. good to use MAC fix+ spray if you have dry skin. Makes skin look amazingly, lots of 'play time' will look average when applying then sets to flawless finish. lasts all day, completely lightweight! my only con; not the best colour range. *NOTE: I live in Australia where this retails for $65 (by comparison MAC foundations retail $52) As this is an Aussie Brand im aware that the price it sells for in USA makes it VERY expensive compared to most other brands which i think is really unfortunate, but there you go.. if you feel like splurging... lol
