Polishes - RIMMEL - 60 Seconds - #200 Princess Pink

I love this polish! I was looking for a quick to apply, no hassle, work appropriate colour that i could apply late on a Sunday night ready for the working week. This is it!

The brush is so handy and the colour is so close to my skin tone (pink and maybe a little on the peachy side of things) that it makes me hands look so long and elegant even with a short nail because it gives an …

I have this in Fame (grey), Azure (navy blue) & Black(uh, derrrr).

I probably use this differently to most folks. For starters, someone "my age" *cough* can look IMO a little harsh with black rimmed eyes. Instead for Step 1, I give my lash line a heavy soaking with the aforementioned colour then remove any errant excess colour from my lids using a cotton tip. This …

Early days yet but what's not to like about this foundation?!

Have tried plenty and my usual is SKII Air Touch in OP1 but at over AUD$100 (and since discontinued anyway) this is a very good alternative, if not better (and only AUD$20!).

Feels silky on your skin which is a major gripe for me with a lot of other foundations and tinted moisturisers (example Bobbi …

This strikes me as very similar to Paula's One Step for Normal to OIly except this has a very slight fragrance (licorice) which personally doesn't bother me.

I was one to my second bottle of Paula's and all was going well but I decided to give this a go because I had stupidly allowed myself to come under attack by the suns rays which exacerbated my melasma. All …

Tinted Moisturizer - Paula's Choice - Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

Love almost everything about this product except that even the lightest shade is too dark for me. I *may* get away with this in Summer if I inadvertently allow myself to get some colour (I'm not a 'true' a PPP in that I actually tan very very easily and only stay pale by avoiding the sun like it's poison!).

Paula: can you extend your shade range to cater …

Nov/16/2008

OK, this is not actually a review (yet)! I thought I would post some thoughts about this product and update as the months go on. Often folks SAY they will update us MUAers but they never do; frustrating! My reasons for seeking out a Vitamin C product is because I have melasma. It came on about 3-4 months ago after I ceased using the oral contraceptive. It covers almost my entire forehead and …Read more

I have been um-ing and aah-ing about writing a review for this product for some months now. I had a very unfortunate reaction to Superfade...well, at least that's what I think the problem was. I am now seeing a dermatologist for melasma (just so happens it is in the exact same area I used the Superfade) and trying IPL.

Anyway...after using the product (at night only in …

This is a review of the Physican's Formula Talc Free Mineral Pressed Powder in Translucent.

I am not a big wearer of MU at the best of times so my daily routine is pretty basic; sunscreen/moisturiser and some sort of powder! I often wear EDMs Natural Reflections in Light because I like it's SPF and the subtle improvement it makes to my skintone without feeling like I am …

This is my new back-up toner that I use when cleaning my face after wearing MMU or if I've been out in the graden getting grimey ;-P I had previously been using a Nivea Visage toner for this purpose but they recently re-formulated and included alcohol in it's ingredients! Why!? Anyway....their loss and Dove's gain.


This is alcohol free, moisutrising and has some …

Meh. I really liked the colour in the tube (exactly as pictured) but it applies much lighter. It washes out my lips and reminds me of dodgy pearl lipsticks from the 80s -which I never wore BTW ;-) I agree that the smell isn't great but it's hardly noticeable. The main issue is the colour...if it applied as it looked it would be great. Such a shame. I might try Pink Lemonade …
