I haven't done a review in a really really long time...and I'm talking YEARS. Tho this might be too quick of a review after only one use, I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I have had pretty bad skin on and off for 9 months now. Mainly getting pimples or not-quite-formed pimples along the jawline, chin and sides of my face. SO I thought I'd bite the bullet and try this …Read more

I haven't ranted on anything on here..until TODAY! I bought this mascara thinking I should give Loreal a try, and compare with my usual Maybelline love Full n Soft and my other Revlon Lash Fantasy. As soon as I unwrapped this and opened the tube, I was like ....oh no..this is gonna be clumpy..and I was right. If you put this on carefully it's ok. And over a few weeks, the formula …Read more

I totally agree with previous MUA's that this is less scary than SQUIRT lipglass! I've got average pinky/beigy lips (Asian girl here) and found this to be a wonderful caramelising lustreglass. My bf couldn't tell the difference from my other lipglasses (typical :P) but he did say that it had a honey effect and is VERY shiny. I AGREE all the way! If you'd like to buy squirt …Read more

I have this in 301, and it's a hot pink colour as a stick, and also when applied to the face! (I'm a NC 35). A little goes a long way with this stuff, I only swipe/dot on about three dabs on the apples of my cheeks and then spread it out with my fingers to make it all even and it gives a nice pink flush. It's not a colour that suits all types of clothing colour/season, but I think …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Pocket Brush set

Jul/05/2004

This comes with a blush/powder brush, eyeshadow shading brush, eyeshadow crease brush and an eyeliner brush. Very good brushes I must say for such a tiny package! I got my friend to help me buy this from the US (NZ doesn't have Sephora) and it's much smaller in real life compared to the picture they display on the website. Nevertheless, I haven't had any problems with the set so …Read more

Jul/05/2004

This was my first eyepaint...I had wanted bare canvas, but they're discontinuing it in NZ :( *nearly cried*. Anywho, I asked the MA to help me put on untitled to see if it'll work (even tho I knew it may not suit my Asian NC 35 skin because it's more of a pink based one, unlike Bare canvas' yellow base), and surprisingly it looked good! (she tried it on my brow). So yeah, I …Read more

I don't know why I didn't choose this as my first MAC eyeshadow?!?! I've been wanting it for ages, and I finally got it....I love it to bits! It's such a beautiful plummy/purpley colour on my NC 35 Asian eyelids. And although you may think it's more of a winter/autumn colour because of it's colour depth, I find that it can actually pair it with any lighter summery …Read more

Eye Shadow - Lancôme - Colour Dose All Day Wear Creme EyeColour & Base

Jul/01/2004

I have colour dose in "Sylvie B" and it's not bad. But I think it can only serve as an eyeliner or a base to a dark smokey eye. The shade is dark/sheer glittery grey (depending on the depth of application) and is truly waterproof and lasts for AGES!. I don't think I'll repurchase this colour again tho because I think I'd much rather get a more natural and versatile …Read more

Makeup Brushes - The Body Shop - Foundation brush

Jun/30/2004

I dunno if it's because I was new to the whole foundation brush concept and didn't clean it very well at first (left the brush upright after washing), and now the bristles are a bit splayed. Or perhaps it reacted to the foundation I used? (Napoleon Minimal makeup). I'm still not sure, but it still does the trick and hasn't shed ANY hair. I wanted to get this cheaper brush to …Read more

I have this in Look 4 and I have NC 35 skin. I bought it in the summer so it gave a nice glowy/dewy look. When used with a brush you can really sheer it out and it still gives quite good coverage. It's a nice compact little vertical rectangular bottle, with no smells and goes on smoothly and non-streaky with a brush. It is quite good for those who want a foundation that is lightweight. But …Read more
