A very nice, natural and subtle blush. Not very pink - more to the peachy side and doesn't give you a doll effect - instead to draw more attention to the cheeks. Compliments bronzers well.
Lipstick -GOSH - Velvet Touch Lipstick #134 Darling

UGH. Best best BEST!! The first ever lipstick I purchased was MAC Myth. Yes the infamous nude lippie that I thought would steal my heart but instead stole the moisture out of my lips :/ Thus began the hunt for my HG Nude lippie. I tried Revlon's Nude Attitude and Smooth Nude - Both weren't great. After a friend bought a few Gosh Darlings online - she decided to sell her extra ones, so I decided, I might as well try it. Thank god I did - this is THE BEST Nude lippie EVER. So moisturising and it doesn't highlight any of my dry cracks or flakes - covers them right up while still looking smooth and luscious!! Completely worth every cent. It's not available here in Australia so I'll have to look far and wide to repurchase this little gem. Highly recommended
This product dries WAY too quickly. Its hard to blend or buff out and it always looks cakey, feels cakey and smells like acrylic paint. I would probably recommend this more for oily/combination skin and for people who need LOTS of coverage - this is a full coverage liquid foundation - but it does NOT give a natural look. Also, the packaging? WTF?? Its so hard to get the right amount of product when the liquid just spills everywhere. Horrible bottle.....
A great great great lippie! One of my favourite bold and obnoxious colours. I own colours from bright neon corals to pastel lilacs. So far Morange is my favourite - especially with the colourblocking trend that's current, the bright orange gives a shazzam! to any look. Plus, the first time I ever wore this, I received 3 compliments in just a few hours!! MAC will always be my favourite.

I love it. Doesn't provide coverage but sets my make up wonderfully the whole night and keeps the skin matte. Also i looked up the ingredients - all which are non comeodogenic so this powder is great for acne prone skin. Give it a try!
LOVE. My holy grail foundation. Before I was devoted to this, I was a powder foundation gal - always using minerals, pressed powders and loose powders - well no way in hell am I taking the road back there. My skin is fairly flakey but still a little bit greasy - so I wouldn't say I had dry skin. This foundation is so lovely on the skin. - It feels light - Great colour selection - Great lasting power - Great buildable coverage No more flakey for me haha! Also, I used to use Revlon Colorstay but the bottle was such an inconvenience. This one has a pump and it's amazing - 2 pumps and I can cover my face :) Seriously recommend this to everyone!!

For a Chanel product, I am extremely disappointed. I heard a lot about the softness and silkiness of this foundation and that is definitely true. Feels like heaven going on but it just makes me look orange - the colour selections are horrid, the next shade lighter was way too light for me so I went with this one thinking it would be okay. I can only really use this in the summer when I'm at least a little bit tan to use this.... Also, the lasting power isn't great nor is the coverage - I still feel naked when I wear this.. I paid AUD $112 for it and it's one of my biggest regrets.
I bought this after reading the great reviews on here. First of all, let me just tell you - this IS waterproof. But let's not mistake that for being everything-proof. This liner smudges like there's no tomorrow - I was so excited to use it, and wanted to love it so badly, but after coming home with raccoon eyes I knew I wouldn't ever use it again. Don't waste your money or time.
I used these the very very first time i started waxing - i was reeeally tired of shaving and getting spikey the very next day :/ I have to say that these are hands down the best strips you'll ever use, they grabbed the shortest of my hairs and they werent very messy at all, You put them on, pull them off - it took the least amount of time and the results are really good! My first experience with these weren't too good, it might have been because i didn't really know what i was doing, but if you have used wax before these will definitely be a breeze! Now that i have used hot wax (which i might add, doesnt get the small hairs out like the veet strips do) The veet strips feel so convenenient! Not only that, but after only the first 2 times of waxing myself i could feel my legs getting more accustomed to the pain and now it actually feels nice (LOL) but maybe because i'm just a little odd.. if you are just starting out with wax, PLEASE use these! you won't regret it :) and make sure you apply a cooling gel afterwards to let the skin recover!

i loooooooooooove this it smells fresh and feels fresh! you only need a little pea sized amount to apply over your face, i use it before bed and it works magic : )
As an asian girl with somewhat medium lengthed/dead straight lashes, this product is more than you can ask for. The brush is curved, perfect to manuever around your eye. The best points are definitely: -HOLDS A FREAKIN CURL this mascara is NON WATERPROOF formula, very easy to wash off and doesnt make your freshly curled lashes droop like many MANY mascaras out there. just apply one light coat, let it dry, and go crazy with layers! -LENGTH/VOLUME loads and loads and loads and loads, my lashes look like falsies :) A great purchase that I do not regret, my quest for a HG Mascara has ended right here!
