Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Hei Poa - Vanillier Eau de Toilette

Oh man I love this scent. It is subtle but fresh and I just can't explain the scent on me. I have bought 3 bottles of this now and cannot buy in NZ so scout the internet trying to find it and it isn't easy. The bottle is kind of funky with an almost cork lid but easy to spray and isn't like all your other fly spraying perfumes (they smell like that on me anyway and are always too strong)
Clothes -Unlisted Brand - Winter Kate by Nicole Richie

Winter Kate by Nicole Richie has to be the most beautiful range of clothing I have ever seen. I have been able to buy on Ebay as cannot buy in NZ. I have been able to buy many of her jackets & other which I just absolutely love. Quite pricey but comparable and I can't find anything like that here in NZ. Very bohemian, feminine, flowy. Love, love this range.
Accessories -Unlisted Brand - Go Healthy Collagen Powder

This has to be the best product I have ever bought. It is not an accessory but was the only category I could find. This is a health product I bought. It is a collagen powder which I drink every morning. Easy to take and after 2 months - I noticed my skin was amazing - seemed less lined (not that I have a huge amount) but my skin just glowed and had people commenting to me so much so that they are now all taking it. The other benefit is that any aches I had in my joints have all gone. My hair has grown faster and my nails are starting to be less brittle and break. I don't and haven't for some time now wear foundation - only some BB Creme. My skin is that good. My best buy for 2012. Cannot speak highly enough of this.
This is the best concealer out there for dark circles under your eye. I use this in combination with Garnier's roller concealer product. The Clinique one really gets in there and definitely helps to hide the shadows. I bought this from several reviews I found and would definitely buy this again - this will be a staple.
Because I'm taking Collagen and using a combination of La Mav & Antipodes skincare, I do not need to use any foundation at the moment and therefore the Garnier BB creme is all I need. I pat this on rather than rub in and find that this is all my skin needs. A wonderful product and wonderfully priced.

This is a beautiful cream and especially over the winter months. Does make a difference to my skin - more plumped up. This has lasted me such a long time and I love it. Will always have this in my drawer and the fact that it is produced in New Zealand and is 100% organic is a bonus too.
Vit-C Advanced Nightly Repair Nectar - this is such a beautiful product. The smell is amazing; makes my skin feel very smooth & moisturised afterwards. There is really no need to put anything on afterwards. I put this on at night and my skin really is glowing at the moment but believe this is a combination of things - but will definitely buy this again. Is at Australian product and the range has just become available in New Zealand.
I loved this product and find it lasts for a long time. But living in NZ, the only way I can buy it is online. I'm on the lookout for something else but if can't find anything - will google to buy online. What I like about this product is on me it gives subtle highlight - isn't glittery - just very subtle and I kind of like the brush (like a nailpolish brush) - makes it really easy to apply.

I wouldn't wear this on its own as not bright enough but I love the feel of it on my lips - stays on a long time and I wear this over Revlon Lip Bitten stain and I just reapply over stain and always have colour. Love it
Hugely, hugely disappointed in this. Colour doesn't last & its virtually sheer anyway. Lips don't feel moisturised either :(
I bought this (actually a couple of times). It reminds me of being a child - I'm wearing a different type of scent nowadays but I think I would buy this again.
This is a great perfume but just something (ginger perhaps?) too strong for me. This is incredibly expensive for what it is (in NZ anyway). But I can see why so me people would love this.
Fragrances -Pilar & Lucy - the exact friction of stars

I loved this when I first bought it. I could smell the coconut, couldn't smell the chocolate though. I loooooovved the name though. But no, wouldn't buy again.
Yuck - the name is great but awful smell.
This was way too sweet. My fave CSP scent is Vanille Cannelle - not even sure if they still sell it. But I loved it.
