I bought this on a whim while shopping at Aldi's yesterday. To be honest, I have no idea of why other than the fact that it was only $6, and I don't have any SPF 15 products just for quick trots out to the shops or stepping outside on lower UV ray days. Whatever purpose this would serve, it was a complete and total miss for me. I was shocked to find that the colour 'Fair' was …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Lip Balm - Sultry

Apr/28/2016

I gave this two lippies out of pure kindness purely because, if you could get this in some subtler colours, it would probably work as an easy wear, 'don't need a lipliner', toss it in your bag lipstick.

Well, firstly, you'd need to carry a good lip balm to give your lips a much-needed drink (and only AFTER taking the lipstick off before reapplying it) on a regular …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara

May/11/2014

Hmm, I forgot about this 'stuff' after tossing it last year.

The thing about L'Oreal is they either hit or really miss... and I've been finding that they've started making a habit of missing the mark regularly over the last few years.

Yes, you'll get length and very minimal bit of volume (I've yet to find a waterproof mascara that does add …

Loose Powders - Australis - Ready Set Go Finishing Powder

4.0

Feb/01/2014

I'm genuinely surprised with this. Australis products are usually 'try hard, but don't quite get it right' for me. Well, I guess it's a cheapie brand and the products (colours, glitters and glitzes, etc.) are targeted at the youth market.

Nevertheless, last summer I was desperate to find a translucent setting powder that would control my oilies around the …

I've noticed that only one other mature-aged woman has written a review on this. I'm 54, while she's in the 56+ age group. If you've been using makeup for as long as we have, I suggest you read her review: I absolutely agree with her.

I was just in a hurry to grab a compact for touch-ups and a sweet lass in Priceline said that a lot of women were swearing by it …

Eye Primer - Australis - Eyeshadow Primer

For me, this is a take it or leave it product. Actually, I'll be leaving it once I use it up. It's translucent and spreads evenly, but the package is ridiculous (why would I bother to wiggle the sponge wand around for hours to get the product once it's half-way used up?) and the product is fairly, "Meh".

It does the trick in as much as it creates a smooth …

Bronzers - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Bronzer (All)

Oct/17/2013

Yep, another extra to 'try out' with my last Cherry Culture splurge. I purchased it in Light and was hoping to use it for contouring as I can't stand frosted products on my face.

It is definitely a fairly ugly rusty-pink with orange tones (I know that sounds weird, but it is truly a weird colour) which I can't see as working with any paler skin tones other than some …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorstay Soft and Smooth Lipcolor - Fabulous Fig 325

Okay, so I bought up on these when I heard they were going to be discontinued. Now I only have one left which I'm trying to abstain from cracking open because I got through the others so quickly (it really was my HG daily lipstick even though I'm a matte fanatic).

Why, Revlon, why?

It's such a Fabulous Fig colour that isn't too light or dark: perfect for …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorstay Ultimate Suede - Catwalk

Oct/16/2013

Ugh! I was on a makeup spree desperately seeking some new matte colours and made the mistake of buying two of this suede line (this and No. 45: Supermodel). Definitely a serious, "What was I thinking?" moment. I wear mattes almost exclusively and don't have problems with even very dry mattes like the Inglot AMC pencils. I also don't have problems with any of the Max Factor …Read more

Sep/27/2013

Most of the reviews so far seem to be concentrating on trying to describe the colours, their personal techniques and what colour combinations they use. Well, makeup is like perfume - nothing is the same on any two women (which is why I don't buy multiple eyeshadow kits). Prefabricated makeup looks may work for some people, but trying to emulate someone else's look only works on the very …Read more
