I only got this because in was 75% off... glad I didn't pay full price!
I kind of like the simple packaging, the lack of scent, and the colour is fine for me (albeit a bit pale), but it's just cakey. I should have known, really, with a cream formula like this, but I've heard such good things about this brand I thought I'd try it.
It sat on top of my skin, accentuating …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Jolen Creme Bleach

Been using this for years, and still only on my second pot. I use it about one a fortnight to bleach my moustache hairs. I have plenty of peach fuzz, though only the upper lip hairs are visibly dark, and found waxing made my upper lip noticeably smooth, it just looked weird. But if the hair is just bleached white like the rest of my fuzz, it's not noticeable. I use the sensitive skin one …Read more

I love this. I saw it at a local store, didn't buy it, spent all night thinking about it, so went back and got it the next day. I got the last one!
Mine is in light brown, and it's plenty dark enough. I have longish, dark eyebrow hairs that have some patches from scars. I don't like a really intense or dark eyebrow, and this is great. You only need the very teeny-tiniest …

This is great. I love the cool tone, and its waxy texture that's easy to build up. I even use the brush, which I didn't think I would.
There is an issue with the product falling out of the package, and I can't store it tip-up, because then the brush would be mushing around in with my brush handles, which just seems gross. But it's not a deal breaker. I wear this when I …

This stuff is so gross.

My husband grabbed it for me (I don't buy stuff that's tested on animals, but he didn't realize that this is from Unilever) and I figured I'd give it a go. Big mistake.
It smells weird. Not awful, just plastic and fake. The apricot kernel pieces are fine, but the cream formula stuff leaves a disgusting film on your skin, and has a …

I LOVE this palette.

This is the only make up I took for a 2 week vacation to Japan in the middle of summer, and it got HOT and HUMID, and this was awesome.

A good mix of matte and pearl and glittery. Good range of shades from light to dark. I use it for everything from eyebrows to highlight to eyeliner, and it's amazing. None of them are suuuper pigmented, but it …

OK, so the 5-lippie rating is for the LARGE palette in the metal packaging (specifically the Berries palette), NOT the small plastic ones, which suck.

The Berries palette is fantastic. Great pigmentation, great range of colours and finishes. There are three groups of colours (oranges, reds and purples) each with a few shades and finishes, that compliment each other, but can be use …

I randomly picked this up off the shelf on a whim at the local discount supermarket. It cost about $5 NZ.

It's awesome! Very light coverage, so all my freckles still show through and I still look like myself... but it just kind of fuzzes everything out, evening out your skin tone a little. You only need a small amount, I just dab it over my face and smooth with my …

Velvety and SUPER pigmented, these are pretty hard to apply, but look amazing!

I have 4.
Spicy is a raisin brown, very warm, but also very dark.
Poetic is a blue based grey. Pretty hard to wear such a gunmetal colour, but it's so beautiful.
Va Voom! is a kind of mulberry purple/pink colour. Really stunning.
Bite Me is red. A flat apple red which is probably the …

I have these in number three (glamour. Has it's own review), two (Power), One (History), and Four (Seduction).

They're all sheer and easy to apply, and none of them have a distinct scent.

Two - Power - is an orange, slightly bricky, red. It's very easy to wear, and probably my favourite of the 4 I own.

One - History - is a more classic apple red …
