This shade was on my wish list for a while then I finally got it but it just didn't suit me. It seemed too bright, almost a neon coral pink. The formula was excellent though, very opaque and full coverage could be achieved in one coat. I would recommend it for summer and for tanned complexions.
Lip Liners -Rimmel - 1000 kisses stay on lipliner in wild clover

This lipliner is perfect. Firm yet creamier and softer than other lip pencils. This particular shade matches most of my pinkish, neutral lipsticks. When I need to have a stay fast colour on my lips (going out to eat), I just apply this lipliner and some gloss and give the lipstick a miss. Much staying power and super cheap!
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick Ginger Rose

My HG lippie! have almost finished my second tube. Got the first one in a GWP and just fell in love with the shade. Its creamy, velvety, highly pigmented and such a warm neutral shade that is universally flattering. Not many dupes out there either. My only peeve is that the lids of Revlon lipsticks tend to come off and have more than once smeared the inside of my purse of cosmetic bag.
This is a very natural mineral powder makeup. As mentioned by other reviewers, if you have dry skin its best to put use moisturiser or a primer first as it will emphasise dryness. The coverage is buildable and it comes in three shades that suit most people. I have been using this almost everyday for over a year and there is still heaps of product left so I doubt I will need to repurchase for a while.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

The colour selection for this range is awesome! I have shades 140 and 128. Sometimes I mix them because 140 is too light and 128 is too yellow/tanned. Its quite sheer and gives a very natural look. The only gripe I have is that after a few hours it has sunk into my skin and makes my dry skin flaky.
I have this in Vanilla Beige. Its rather thick and needs to be smoothed out with fingers to get an even coverage. It covers quite well and doesn't look cakey as long as I don't use too much. I stacked it on just before a photo shoot and all my fine lines were emphasised and looked terrible. Luckily they photo-shopped the portrait! Having got dry, sensitive skin and not finding some other foundations suitable, this would have to be the best I have tried so far. It gives me a somewhat flawless finish.
What a disappointment! The colour in the bottle looks so mermaid-like but the formula is so watery that it would take more than 3 coats to achieve that kind of opaqueness colour. Considering that OPI ask for AUD$20 per bottle it would be a bad investment. I have since found other dupes and substitutes of turquoise from other brands such as Revlon and Zoya to be better.
This product made the eczema on my face worse! Another thing that I hated about it was that it blocks any moisturiser from hydrating the skin if you put it on first. The consistency is very strange like an oily gluey gel.
Lotions/ Creams -Jurlique - Rose/Lavender Hand Cream

I have bought the rose hand cream three times. Would purchase more if it weren't so pricey. The cream is soft, thick and smells lovely. It is readily absorbed into the skin unlike other creams which just sit on the surface and don't hydrate properly. Highly recommended.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I started out liking this hand cream a lot but just find the smell too strong now. Its very thick and waxy but doesn't seem to sink into the skin to really moisturise. I am also annoyed at the metal tube which looks all crumpled and will be hard to push the last of the product out of with potential wastage.
One of the best pink lipsticks ever. The colour is perfect - not too bright or barbie-esque and not too mauvey. Its quite a sweet, feminine girly pink and good for those who want something more than a neutral shade.
This is my fave shade out of the OPI Burlesque collection as well as one of my favourite nail polishes. I am a sucker for magenta and this one is gloriously shimmery and has so much sparkle in the sunlight as well as in artificial light. Its a beautiful deep pink that screams for attention. Coverage is also good and only need one or two coats.
I was given this as a birthday gift (30ml)and have now repurchased my second bottle (75ml). I have received heaps of compliments and people asking what I am wearing. The packaging is pretty and the fragrance is floral, feminine, subtle and classy. I love it!
I use this eye palette daily especially the dark purple and lavender shades. Sometimes use the white sparkle when I want to use a highlighter. Its really good value for money as I get so much use out of it. Eyeshadow takes ages to use up so I doubt I would need to repurchase again even if it was available (unlikely as it is a limited edition item). The peacock green shade is also gorgeous!
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Aloe Vera soothing rich night cream

This cream is a skin saviour for me when I have sensitive skin flare ups. Its the only non-irritating moisturiser I can use that actually calms my skin when I get eczema on my face. Its very soft, creamy and cooling. Have used this since 2007 and hope that they never stop manufacturing it.
