I cannot believe how good these polishes are for the AU$2 you pay for them. There are some bum colours (oh, also I'd stay away from the glitter polishes as they seriously are rubbish) but the amount of pigmentation and the wear that you get out of them is seriously amazing. I'm seriously loving the waterlily I've got on right now.

I suppose the downside to these polishes …

I've been using this conditioner along with its matching shampoo for the last month and a half. If I'd writtem this review after the first week of use, I would given it a terrible rating as it left my hair feeling dry and gluggy. However, I did persist with using this and my hair seems to have a lot more body and shine to it and I'm getting fewer split ends than before. Also …Read more

I've been using this shampoo along with its matching conditioner for the last month and a half. At first, I wasn't at all impressed at it only seemed to strip my hair of moisture and leave it in a tangled mess. However, it seems that after continual use, my hair actually seems healthier, with more body and shine. Also, I seem to be getting far fewer splits ends than I got before …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Tutti Frutti Tonga

It's a very pretty peachy pink colour. However, it does streak ridiculously and I was pretty appalled by how much wear I got out of it. With both a base and top coat, the longest I've managed to go without chipping or peeling this particular polish was two and a half days. Really unimpressive for an OPI polish.

I remember when I first started using this product, I freaked out a bit when I found that it stung the area around my eyes. Although it stung a bit, it didn't cause any redness so I persisted with this. So, after applying this gel religiously (twice a day, once in the morning and once at night), I've found that the lines around my eyes have softened substantially and that the dark …Read more

This really is an excellent highlighter. I have this in sunbeam (003) and it blends perfectly with my (olive) skin. Personally, I use this on top of my foundation on my under eye areas, on the sides of the bridge of my nose and on my upper lip. It doesn't cover up any dark spots (those still need to be taken care of with concealer), but it certainly goes a long way to giving me a more …Read more

I got the Petit Moi oil blotting paper in the Black version which comes in blue packaging and contains about 80 sheets. It's a powderless blotting paper with a light powdery rose scent. It does a great job with absorbing excess oil without wiping off or smudging makeup. This stuff is just as good as the Shiseido blotting paper at a fraction of the price.

The only thing that annoys …

Okay, I admit that I got sucked in as soon as I saw the words "dark chocolate & peppermint" and will probably buy this product again just because it smells so very delicious. Then that's just me being a sucker for products that smell delicious.

If you're looking for a product that actually works to condition or heal your poor chapped lips, this is not for you …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #190 Foundation Brush

I love love love this brush. My Chanel Teint Innocence foundation looks perfectly applied (and natural) ever since I got this brush. Yes, your liquid foundation will look a bit streaky when you first apply it with this brush but it takes all of one minute to get it blended perfectly. What I do is roughly dot my face with foundation and then blend outwards with short brush …Read more

As one of the other reviews mentioned, the first version of this essence was the best and it has pretty much gone downhill since. That's not to say that it doesn't work anymore, it's just that it works reaaalllyyy slowly now.

That said, if you want instant (or at least faster) gratification, you're much better off using the White D-Tox 2-in-1 mask. Personally, I …
