The best mascara I have ever used. Doesn't smudge at all and is easy to apply.

I am so pleased that I got this as a GWP. It is lightweight, absorbs quickly and leaves my skin smooth, and not oily at all. The scent is fresh and clean like all other Natio products, which I really like! The SPF is great too. From memory, it is less than $20 AU, and you get quite a lot of product.
This is my miracle manicure product! Absolutely love the super glassy finish which it provides and the watery consistency which makes it very easy to apply. Dries very fast. It does thicken a bit over time which is bad cause I had to throw it out before finishing it, but I will definitely buy it again!
Not sure if this has done anything amazing for my skin, but it certainly hasn't done anything bad to it. I like the refreshing feeling after I apply it, and it removes residue well. I like to use it in the mornings before I apply moisturiser and at night. Price is very decent. I'll be buying it again.
I choose to wear this when I don't want it to be obvious that I'm wearing blush. Because it's matte, I just get a nice natural hint of colour which gives a healthy glow. I might check out some other shades.
In the beginning I really liked this, and used it in rotation with another TRESemme shampoo and conditioner. My hair felt really clean and healthy. Now after a few weeks, I've stopped using it as it left an oily residue which made my hair feel like I hadn't washed it in days! Couldn't stand leaving my hair out! I had tried TRESemme on another occasion which left me unsatisfied. Won't be trying again!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Tiramisu

This is a GORGEOUS colour! One of my favourites. It feels very nice on the lips too. It is too expensive for me so I probably won't buy it again. If you love this shade as I do, try out Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in the shade Nutmeg. I compared both and couldn't see the difference! Burt's Bees version is a fraction of the cost of EL and has rave reviews on MUA as well.

This is an absolute miracle product! I've had it for less than 24 hours and I'm already addicted to it! I want to keep reapplying it but that isn't necessary as it lasts for hours. It is made up of 60% medical grade lanolin which keeps my lips so soft, and also contains sweet almond oil, shea butter, beeswax, coconut oil, grape seed oil AND spf 15. Rose is a dusty pink which is a barely there pink nude when applied. The formula is very creamy and goes on an absolute dream! It melts onto your lips, and a little goes a long way. Lips are left slightly glossy and not sticky at all. The packaging is so cute! I'd love the entire collection just to be able to look at them! There is no applicator tip so you need to squeeze it onto your finger but in this case I don't really mind. I honestly can't say anything bad about this product and will definitely repurchase, probably trying the other colours as well! At $13.95 the price is excellent and is readily available at Priceline, department stores and selected pharmacies in Australia.
A glittery holographic blue polish. It's partly translucent so it looks best when layered on another shade, such as Lucid Nail Polish in VL03. The fat brush means even application in just one stroke.
A pretty warm blue with a pearl finish. The colour is very flattering. It has a great fat brush which means you get even application with just one stroke! Looks amazing with BL01 layered on top!
These polishes are AWESOME! Missha typically clear old ranges very quickly and bring new ranges on a regular basis. The new range are in a heart shaped bottle and have nice fat brushes for even application of polish in one single stroke! Nails are extremely neat and the polish dries really quickly. This range has many wearable colours which are classy and fashionable. They sell for $4.90, which is about double of the previous polishes, but the quality has definitely improved which make them very worthy! Extremely pleased, and I hope that Missha will continue to bring future colours at the same standard!
This smells really good and feels great but it really isn't good for travelling! It spilt all over my bag and this has happened on several different occasions. I've tried wrapping it with tissues, plastic etc and they proceed to be soaked. Packaging needs to be improved.
A gorgeous midnight shade of black with a slight blue shimmer which is mesmerising. The shimmer is fine and looks amazing under sunlight. 1 application is all that is necessary and it dries fast.
There is very little info about the quality of this polish which may make many people hesitate (including myself) when considering buying this. But I'm telling you this now... buy it! I found that the old range of Bloom polish (in the small, round bottles) were bit of a hit or miss. Having already tried 4 shades, I can say that these are all pretty good.The polish is not thick but more on the runny side. Hopefully it won't turn goopy compared to the old range. 1 coat is sufficient for good, smooth coverage with no streaky lines and it dries quite fast for a polish which is not a quick-drying polish. A few minutes is all it takes. Have not worn the polish long enough to see how long it will last (without base and top coat), but will update later on that. So far everything is going great! Also should mention that the brush is quite nice, long and allows fine precision (unlike the old range). There are matte, high gloss, shimmery, glittery and sheer polishes in wonderful selection of shades. There are over 80 shades so everyone should be able to find something ;) Bloom also releases Designer shades periodically. The polishes are not exactly cheap at $20 each with an increase in price compared to the old range, but Bloom offers and sales make it worthwile. Take advantage of offers such as 3 for $32 as they are great value. Overall, very impressed so far, and I'm very glad to have tried these out!

When it's used at first it felt quite nice but a few seconds later my skin started to sting, and the tingling sensation remained for a while. I know I don't have sensitive skin, so I don't know what happened there... just know it wasn't pleasant.
