Liquid -Revlon - Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup
missgiggly 6/5/2012 11:36:00 PM
I really enjoy this makeup! I have closer to normal skin (with a dry forehead that is being made better with serums) but I find this applies gorgeously with a damp sponge, and I've been using it non-stop. I haven't had any problems with it turning a different colour and I find it stays quite well on a long day (in a standard office environment) I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase (though I have seven on the go!) :)
This is probably the most expensive exfoliant I’ve ever tried for my face, so I was quite intimidated and first, not knowing how it applied. Its in a gorgeous, frosted glass bottle with a pump, and isn’t your usual exfoliant where you feel the grains and you’re scrubbing it into your skin. It is a light gel consistency and the fruity, limey scent is *gorgeous* and fresh, not chemically at all. You apply it over a clean face, just applying a clean film and leave it for 5 minutes. The first time I used it, wow! It was magical and tingly – a little on the stinging side but I think it was because its the first Aha treatment I’ve ever done! I felt like touching my face, whilst I felt the effect working but on 2nd and 3rd applications its much better, and can I just say? WOW, my skin, and the smoothness level has never been this good. Who knows what long term effect this will have, but I am completely sold and I am already envisaging within a couple of weeks, my skin will be as clear, and smooth as an airbrushed model! :P
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation

I love that this smells like vanilla cake batter. Almost like a liqueur really! This blends so nicely, and has a slight shimmer to it (more radiance) and I have got compliments when I have it on! The downside is that the bottle has no pump and so you have to dip your brush into it in order to get product on but it just applies onto the skin so nicely, great foundation for the price
Wow! This was love at first brush! I've been trying a few mascaras lately in hopes for volume and length, and whilst volume is easy enough to come by, this I was doing a double take in the mirror not believing it had given me so much length.. whilst looking SO natural and not *super* dark and obvious that I was even wearing mascara! This is a wonder! A friend got this for me in Sydney and sent it to me - I'd never heard of it, but now it has to be my length HG!
I have short boring lashes, and this makes them feel amazing! Soft and natural, they don't clump or feel stiff or anything, and it gives decent volume as well as length. Love the packaging, and the brush is quite spiky so it does grab hold of my lashes quite well just where I need them to. Would buy again for sure!
Oh my, this is the crème blush that has made me now crave more colours, more brands. I love how this blends, I love the warm natural flush it gives me. And it doesn’t look overly shiny, or over the top at all. Absolutely LOVE. Hate the price here in Australia though and that’s why I don’t have anymore just yet. One day.. I will get a few more!
Lipstick -Rimmel - Rich Moisture - Dreamy [DISCONTINUED]

What a gorgeous lipstick, a beautiful sheer nude with a slight pink to it. I'm NC35 with olive skin, lightly pigmented lips and this is just a beautiful nude pinky light 'blush' type colour. Such a great creamy formula, glides on easily, and in such a cute pink tube, for the price, I'm definitely going to keep collecting.
Wow, this took me by surprise. It looks quite multi-tonal, but mostly like a dusky pink highlighter colour. Yet, it came out quite warm and soft on me, and made a great lid/contrast colour to Smoke & Diamonds in the crease. I really, really love this as a lid colour. I've always seemed to find great crease colours but.. this may have become my new lid colour of choice :)
Wow, I think this has become my HG. Granted I don't nearly have as many mascaras as lots of girls - but this has surpassed my love of Benefit's Bad Gal Lash. I love the rubbery wand on this - it does not clump, and the mascara seems to just apply so evenly, and without me having to get a lash brush to fix up my lashes. I love this and have it in Very Black.
I really love the formula of Rimmel lipsticks.. I don't own nearly enough! I love the bright pink tube, and Smooch was on special at Priceline here, I had to get it! Its a soft nude (but warm) pink, and applies sheerly but creamy. I'm not a fan of hugely pigmented lipsticks, and I'm only just getting into lipsticks.. and this has become a staple.
Whisper is a gorgeous dusty pink champagne type colour, a great lid colour for a work safe neutral day. It comes in the oh so cute flip top compact, with a mirror inside, and at $24AUD, its a great price. Very smooth formula, it blends like a dream - I have about 5 Bloom eyeshadows, and want to collect more, they're all very wearable colours.

I really love this, looks really bright in the tube - a 'bubble gum pink' but doesn't apply that harshly. Quite sheer, gives a nice sheen, and I really love the silky formula. Its not sticky at all, but it doesn't have a great lasting power to it, but I definitely love this. The smell is hard to describe, sweet and I can't pin point it but its nowhere near as nice as the scent of the L'Oreal Glam Shines - but giving this 4 lippies, taking away one for the short lasting power.
I gotta say, I really love this. It does NOT look like a shampoo - I mean, to tip over the pot, and it not come out.. what kind of shampoo is that? And the fact that its mostly dessicated coconut, and vanilla.. and natural products, it seems like such a novelty. But my fine (but lots of it) and dry hair is loving it. Emulsifying it between my fingers in the shower, then massaging it into my hair, you can immediately feel your hair soaking it in, and it just smooths in. You only need to massage a bit more vigorously to get the coconut bits out, but I've never had an issue with it. My hair is loving it, and is less dry, has less flyaways with this. On a night out recently, to go from a day look to night look - a friend at work was doing my hair, and she was literally curling my hair with nothing other than her hands, wondering just how the curls were holding. Curly Wurly is GREAT.
Oh my goodness.. I have found THE conditioner for me. Wearing this on its own, I could wear my hair down, with NO product, and my hair wasn't a frizzy crazy fluffy mess! The scent is subtle, but strawberries and cream (though less strawberry than you would think) but it applies SO nicely, and after only a few seconds, immediately makes my hair soft, and supple. But the real gem of this is that when naturally drying, my goodness.. my hair is bouncy, soft, and I can't stop touching it. I LOVE this!
Wow! This comes out so pigmented, but it is definitely a balm, and not a gloss. I love this strawberry shade, the soft but pigmented colour that comes out. I put it on as soon as I moisturise in the morning to ensure my lips are soft, and supple for the day ahead. I wish I could find more, but I think there are only 2 others at the chemist nearby, but definitely a bargain at $4AUD and better imo than the Cocoa Butter balm.
