I love this lipstick. I have it in Nymphe. A pink. Didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. Need to reapply quite often, but totally worth it.

Does the job, skin feels nice and soft afterwards. And it smells nice.
Not the best, doesn't provide perfect results, but it does an alright job at trying. It does make my hair feel nice and soft though. And it smells nice.
My grandad bought me this :P But its actually quite nice.

I love this scent. Has lasted me forever.
I love this colour. Requires a few coats and chips somewhat easily. Needs a re-do within one or two days definitely. But it looks great when its done!

This is for the Zero Frizz Straightening Creme. Not the best serum I've ever used for straightening or frizz. Its a good quick fix if your in a hurry, but it doesn't last. Also, the tube for this is quite large.. yet it seems to run out very quickly.

I bought from the new ultra fine pigments range. W1 Golden Ivory - $41.80NZD I have a normal skin type. I used to use this foundation a lot a few years ago, don't remember having any problems with it. Thought I'd give the new one a go. Can't say I'm impressed with it, I'm not quite sure if they have changed the formula at all. But it was very difficult to apply, didn't cover a wide area of skin like other foundations do, so there's no conserving of the precious makeup here. It also balled up and dried, leaving an incredibly crusty appearance on my skin, like I hadn't washed the makeup from the night before off. Not attractive. It didn't provide very even cover I found. I'm going to use it a few more times to give it a chance, but at the moment, this is quite possibly the worst foundation I have used to date.
I suffered from dry, flaky skin for a while because of a reaction to an exfoliant I was using. After using this my skin was back to normal within days pretty much. I used it on my face and body, I didn't suffer any adverse reactions and I liked the texture, I didn't think it was too heavy. I also suffer from eczema, and it was quite good when that flared up.
I have the brown, the pink and the green eyeliners. I find they go on very very well, I tend to use the brown for my eyes as well as my eyebrows. A downfall for me is that the colours seem to stain my skin for about a day after I wash it off. No biggy, barely noticable. but strange. Very nice, cheap alternative to the more expensive, not as reliable brands, if you are looking for colour variety in your eyeliners.
I bought this in Red rouge. Best red lipstick I have used in a loooong time. Goes on so smooth, its so vibrant, solid and pretty. As it was a red lippy that I bought I for one never experienced a lack of staying power. It stayed on very well and didn't smudge at all the entire day and evening. I haven't tried eating anything messy with it on yet haha. But I love this lipstick. LOVE IT. The reds anyway :P
I really liked this eyeliner. It was soft and drew on very smoothly and it has lasted me quite a few months, and that's impressive considering how much I pile black eyeliner on. The only drawback that I found was that every so often, depending on how lazy I was with my makeup app that morning, I'd end up with panda eyes halfway through the day.
I used a small bottle of this for a while. I don't think it did THAT much greatness. My skin was still relatively dry after, and I didn't notice any scars fading due to use. It did make my elbows and knees nice and smooth though :D But I don't think it lives anywhere near up to the hype. I've found better products since. - Didn't fade scars - Didn't really do much at all - Made me itchy and gross feeling.

The Good: - Blends nicely with blusher. - A nice sheer coverage. The Bad: - The packaging. It gets really tedious opening and closing it. Maybe I'm just lazy though. - Doesn't seem to set the foundation as well as I would like it too. The Detail: - This isn't the best powder I have ever used, but its not terrible. I like this powder personally, I think blusher blends with it really nicely. I used 'rose ivory' which happened to be far too fair for my skin, which I found odd, as the ivory's usually fit my skin tone perfectly, it was kind of like I just rubbed talc in my face, but of course, thats more my fault for not paying closer attention to which ivory I picked up haha. Otherwise I liked it. Not the best powder ever, but its decent.
