Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2018

Just tried the mascara, luckily it was <AUD$5 because this is probably the worst $5 spent. I had fairly high hopes for it, especially in terms of length, since this is a "lash extension" mascara with "lengthening fibres". It did jack for length, no different to any other non-lengthening mascara. It does give volume...in form of clumps. The mascara isn't very wet, it …Read more

Liquid - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2015

This foundation is indeed very thick for a liquid foundation. I find the coverage to be very comparable to L'Oreal True Match, which I believe is medium coverage. Scars and blemishes are still quite noticeable. It feels thick, heavy and sticky on the face, especially after applying a second layer on problem areas. Feels a lot better after powdering the face.
I would prefer …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Laurelle Parums

1.0

Feb/18/2014

While shopping at a mall, a girl holding a gift bag who was selling Laurelle Parfums in a pop-up store invited me to smell their perfumes.

Their perfumes smelled cheap, like something from the $2 shop. The Royal one for mens almost gave me a nose-bleed, smelt like strong cheap alcohol. The perfume did not last more than 1hr of shopping.

Don't be fooled by their …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

Aug/18/2013

I got a free sample of this mascara from the Benefit counter and I must say, I was quite disappointed. It only lengthened my lashes a little bit, nothing dramatic. Gave very very little volume, no matter how many coats. It got a bit clumpy after a few coats in attempt to get more volume. It does define your lashes if you dont put too much on, as it started to clump my lashes together, making me …Read more

Cleansers - Clearasil - Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Wash and Mask

4.0

Jul/03/2013

This cleanser is very refreshing and gentle. Its creamy in texture and smells fruity.
Some cleansers make my skin feel dry and tight, so I need to put layers of moisturiser on. But this cleanser doesnt, its strong enough to remove makeup but not too strong to leave my skin feeling dry.

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Concealer Brush

This brush is amazing and surprisingly cheap, quite the opposite of "you get what you pay for". Yes the brush is small (about 0.5cm), but because of the size, it allows easy control for high precision and accuracy, particularly on small blemishes or scars/imperfections.
The brush is easy to blend with and easy to hold.

Ive stopped using the MAC concealer brush and Ive …

Got this in 02 Linen. It is pretty sheer, but thats what I love about it. It looks very natural. It dries very quickly. Mine was thick or gloopy, was indeed smooth and applied smoothly with the brush.

Really great buildable coverage, though if you put too much on, it may look a tad cakey. It evens out the redness on my face and covers scars/blemishes well, though not fully - still need concealer for darker spots. Its very lasting. It doesnt come off when I touch my face (blowing nose etc). Good oil and heat control, as I work in a place where I use a furnace every now and then. Set it with …Read more

Concealers - Laura Mercier - Secret Concealer

I have No.2 . Indeed the texture is very creamy, it sort of covers my dark eye circles, but after a few hours it turns orangey and I'll have to apply a different lighter concealer to correct the colour.
I was charged more than the price the sales assistant quoted me (in AU). Emailed Laura Mercier customer service, they dont seem to care - no reply at all.
