These are pretty awesome.
Not as epically amazing as OCC Lip Tars (and I haven't tried Too Faced Melteds) but for the price, these are pretty darn fantastic!
I think these usually retail for about $4USD but I managed to get mine for less than $3 a pop - I splurged and got 5 of the 6 original shades (I skipped Babydoll, from experience those light, bright blue based pinks look …

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Line Small Smudge Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/18/2014

I've had this brush for about a week and I'm going to buy about 4 more... it's a true multi-tasker and I need MOAR!
Well made, just the right size, doesn't shed or leak dye, easy to clean and quick to dry.
I mostly use this for apply gel eyeliner, it easy to control and gives a nice clean line and tidy little wing. Beats every other liner brush I've tried …

Lotions/ Creams - Crabtree & Evelyn - Lavender hand therapy

Apr/28/2014

Love this stuff.
I've tried about elenbenty squillion hand creams and I have to say, i think Crabtree & Evelyn makes the best. It's rich but not greasy, it sinks in straight away and doesn't leave any residue and comes a a wide range of fragrances.
Lavender and La Source are my favourites, delicately scented and not overpowering, these are a nice little touch of …

Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Tangle Teezer

Apr/27/2014

I struggled with hair brushes for years until I discovered this. I have the standard curved teardrop one in Orange Burst and also a black travel one that comes with a nifty little cover that slots over the bristles so they don't get bent in your bag and I love them both.
My hair is fairly fine but I have masses of it so it is quite thick. The ends tend to tangle easily and I cannot …

Well, hello there wonderful. I'm glad I found you!
For $3, you really can't beat this little gem. Plain and boring matte black packaging belies the awesomeness of this wonderful little wand and better than decent formula. Rigid plastic bristles combined with a narrow neck ensure the perfect amount for each application - no clumping, no excess, no smearing, just clearly defined …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - London Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Balm

5.0

Apr/17/2014

WHOA NELLY!
These are so cool - I'm a sucker for chunky twist up crayon pencil thingies and these are up there with the best. Like the Jordana balm stains, these are both moisturizing and pigmented with a soft candy scent. The tubes and lids are representative of the colour inside, which makes it easy to grab the right one (and I have 12 or 13 of them, so this is handy!) but the only …

Lips - NYC New York Color - Applelicious Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/16/2014

I think these are fun - bright pinky red tubes, plenty of product and a little core (heh) of cute apple shaped goodness in the centre. The have a decent texture, not too waxy or slippery so they feel nice on and they might retain moisture OK but they don't actually moisturize super effectively. Still as long as you reapply them while needed, they'll leave your lips soft and smooth with …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Blush Brush

4.0

Apr/15/2014

This is a really lovely brush... however I use to apply setting and finishing powders instead of blush because it's too big for my cheeks.
Sturdy, well made, light handle, self standing (if you need it), super soft, tapered bristles, doesn't shed, easy to clean, quick to dry and really reasonably priced.
Winner!
Ironically, I also have the powder blush and use it to apply …

Pressed Powders - MILANI - The Multitasker Face Powder [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2014

This is really good.
A lovely, fine textured, matte setting and finishing powder, softly scented and luxuriously soft to apply. It sets my foundation well and leaves a velvety matte finish that prevents shine for a good 4 hours on me. I like to apply this with my Real Techniques blush brush, as it's really easy to sweep under eyes and apply around my nose, forehead and hair …

Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2014

Love this.
Smells divine, easy to carry and use, sturdy wee tin holds plenty of product (15g) and the texture of the balm is slightly stiff before it melts into skin, soothing and softening dry patches. Not quite as moisturizing as the L'Occitane shea butter cuticle cream, but heaps better then Lush's Lemony Flutter. I try and apply this at least twice a day and after 3 weeks, my …
