I'm not a perfume person, but I absolutely love this scent! The name fits it perfectly. What I love most about it is that its not too overwhelmingly sweet like most women's perfumes are. The packaging is super cute, although the atomizer seems to be defective.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

My first primer - now I'm hooked! I have quite oily lids, so the shadow insurance was a godsend. At first I was a bit skeptical as to how a primer would absorb any oils and prevent my eyeshadow/liner from creasing, but this product really works! I was so surprised after I noticed my eye makeup hadn't budged one but after a whole day. The primer doesn't work particularly well on creme eye shadows, however. Its retail price in Australia is a bit ridiculous at $35 a tube.
After swatching this instore I was super excited to try it on. Unfortunately, my excitement went to waste as I found that this liner would only really work on the naked eye and not so much on top of eyeshadows (in which the colour would be no where as near intense). The formula/felt tip is also a bit dry.
I decided to buy this product after I finished my apricot scrub and was looking for an exfoliating cleanser I could use several times a week, also I have a weakness for all things green tea! I adore the smell, but this scrub didn't really do much for my skin: it didn't break me out, nor did it stop me from breaking out. As a previous reviewer mentioned, I also noticed how the apricot scrub was more abrasive, of which I felt helped exfoliate my skin better than the green tea.
I love this moisturizer! Decided to pick this up at my local drugstore as it was on sale for $8AUS and I'm so glad I did! The formula is light and absorbs quickly into the skin leaving it soft and bright. Personally, I found my skin improving after 1-2 weeks of using this product: the minor pimples I had constantly popping up finally stopped! I also love how it comes in a pump bottle.
I was initially really excited to try Bio Oil after seeing it on the supermarket shelves for years, as well as the new advertisements! I gave it a try and it certainly didn't disappoint. It made my skin smooth, clear and soft: for the first month-or-so that is. After this point in time I think my skin got too used to the product and it stopped working. However, the pricing is great, as is the packaging,
This moisturizer leaves your skin feeling supple and soft, but can be a bit of a hassle to get out of the jar when you're almost done with it! Also, the product tends to thicken with time.
This was my first full coverage foundation and its pretty good. It does its job, as it covers redness, dark under eye circles and any pigmentation/discolouration. It also photographs beautifully, is long lasting and you don't need too much. However it can look a little cakey if you don't moisturize properly beforehand and since I live in Australia, its a bit on the pricey side!
