I love dainty! It adds a pop of colour to my cheeks which are Nw20. The colour builds up evenly and is sheer. Pretty flushed pink peach colour.
Pretty good, left my hair shiny and healty looking. Shade I used was light brown, my hair was a medium brown but going a bit brassy from colour fade and the result turned out pretty nice, a rich medium warm brown. I go for lighter shades because there have been so many times when I have used store bought hair colour in medium-dark brown shades and it has almost gone black, the result is always darker. The conditioner treatment smells good (but I don't like to use the ones included in hairdye boxes because they feel heavy and like silicone build up) and the no-amonia and affordable price is a plus too.
Liquid -Maybelline - SuperStay Makeup - New Version

Has good coverage, nice finish, doesn't accentuate fine lines or pores, not cakey, colour matches pretty well BUT my tzone gets especiallyy oily when wearing this and this doesn't stay on the face as good as Revlon Colourstay, however it is more comfortable and lighter to wear than Revlon Colourstay - which feels like your wearing a mask. 3 lippies because it makes my face super oily, this might however be a great foubdation for people with dry skin
Foundations -Napoleon Perdis - China Doll Foundation

When choosing between this and the Napoleon Perdis Stick Foundation the MUA told me that the stick foundation makes you look like you have good make-up whereas China Doll makes you look like you have good skin. This creamy-velvet foundation has good longish wearing coverage and a matte yet natural finish perhaps because it seems to have tiny reflective particles in it which I noticed were left behind when I washed my face. It also comes in a tube which means you can squeeze most of it out and there is no wastage. Oh, and they have brought out lighter shades (Look B1,B2) thank-goodness because Look 1 was a bit too yellow and dark and Look 2 was neutral but a bit too dark on my NC15 skin. A bit pricey though!
Smells fresh and citrusy and clean, but doesn't really stand out for me. Smells very similar to Incanto Shine (but less fruity) and reminiscent of Juicy Couture (but probably milder and less floral).
I don't mind the smell but the product isn't all I'd hoped for. It's a medium hold balm that you put in your damp hair before you blow dry, I honestly think my hair straightens nicer with my straightening irons when I use no product or a lighter heat protectant spray (KMS) or serum (Kerastase), for someone with thick straight but unruly hair this product just makes my hair feel unnatural, like it has product gunk on it that I want to wash out and slightly stiff and weighed down meaning if it gets messed up it kind of doesn't fall back into place. Didn't give me the smooth, soft, silky results I hoped for:(
Fragrances -Bulgari - Rose Essentielle EDP - limted edition

I have the EDT, it is very feminine, fresh and sweet, I just want to keep smelling myself. Smells like fresh syrupy roses with spicy sandalwood and powder. Wish it would stay on my skin longer! The EDP has the same notes and stonger staying power but to my nose is less sweeter and fresh and more mature and powdery.
Wow I LOVE this blush! It gives a great natural peachy pink flush of colour, with a hint of shimmer, perfect for everyday blush. I've read that it is a Nars Orgasm dupe too, it's probably not as good as Orgasm but who can complain it's way cheaper! The size of the blush is quite small but once again it's affordable and awesome! Goes lovely on my NC15 skin.
My daily foundation at the moment. It does the job, covers, blends, is wearable and lasts on the skin. My skin does however get oily whilst wearing it (Ive heard it makes some people break out too). It is also quite matte and flat looking which can dull out your skin. I wear NC15 which is the lightest I think, and it can make you look a bit ghostly in photos due to the high spf. Bronzer is a must. Still on the search for my HG foundation! Compared to Revlon Colorstay, Studio fix has similar coverage but seems more blendible and less cakey, Colorstay has much better staying power.
Smells delicious, fruity and summery, like tropical juice. I was in love with this, I would say it is the best fruity Escada scent.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Wrapped With Love by Hilary Duff
silver27 7/6/2009 4:49:00 AM
I like this a lot more than With Love which I didn't like at all. It reminds me of Mor Marshmellow scent and fizzy bath bombs. I get vanilla and sugar on my skin. Only lasts a few hours on me however. Soft, feminine and airy though I do find it slightly sharp and sickly. I wouldn't say this is something sexy or fresh or memorable, just nice that's all, therefore I wont be repurchasing. EDIT: I really dislike this now, ugh! I prefer floral or fruity scents, this vanilla-oriental smelling perfume has nothing that stands out (I cant smell no fruity notes!?) and makes me feel sick, its a miss for me!
This didnt do anything for me! Too much product got on the brush and it just made my lashes stick toogether. It barely held my curl, but it did define the lashes in a non volumising, unsoft wet kind of way. Beware it smudges!! So horrible I threw it out!
I bought Lash Blast in waterproof so it would hold the curl better after using an eyelash curler and it works and lasts all day, however this stuff is a fricken mission to remove even after using eye makeup remover at night my lashes still feel as though they have stuff on them and when I apply to clean lashes I'm sure it doesn't go on as nicely as I have remants of mascara left on my eyelashes. I must say though I was impressed when I first used it, it gives seperation definition and length albeit a bit plastic feeling. Waterproof formula definitely wouldnt reccomend as an everyday mascara, however I might use it for a night out. Didnt mind the size of the wand and I actually like the bright orange packaging.
Crème -The Body Shop - Flawless Skin Protecting Foundation SPF 25
silver27 6/21/2009 7:21:00 AM
Not bad but not great, this has decent coverage but not much lasting power and wipes off. Will use when in a hurry and stash in my handbag for touchups. The finish is kind of flat and cakey - the kind that looks like you are wearing foundation. Also seems a bit pricey for the 9g(3oz) of foundation but maybe thats normal. Was not amazed.
I personally do not like this product, it has a funny finish (sheen) which looks yuck along with my foundation, I just cant describe it but it does not look good feels cakey too. Sounds like a magic concealer in it's MAC description but I was so disapointed it does not last, feels cakey and gross, looks gross.
