I really wanted to like this, swatched on my hand it comes up as a beautifully subtle gold shimmer with peachy undertones. However when applied to my NW15/20 face it does not show up.. at all... in any light.

Applied quite heavily a get a light shine on my cheekbones but thats it. None of the promised gold and peachy shimmer.

I could achieve the light shine the heavy …

Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer

I really love this product, it feels very light yet I still feel it hydrates my skin effectively. My skin absorbs this quickly and so I like to use it in the morning before my foundation.
When my skin really starts to dry out in winter this isn't enough to deal with it, but I just use Nivea creme and return to this the next morning.

A very nice, light feeling product …

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Eye Enhancers Quad - Urban Basics

These colours are hardly pigmented with alot of fallout. Even with a primer and when packed on with a 239 these colours hardly show up. I did like the highlight colour though it was quite pretty, sheer and shimmery.

Wouldn't buy again and do not use.

Very pretty colours, was really impressed with this quad. The lighter colours are a bit chalky, but the two darker purples give a good colour payoff with my MAC paintpot.

All the colours are shimmery, the lilac especially. The only problem with these shadows is that there is a alot of fallout which annoys me a little. I also am not too fond of the packaging, the flip lid scratched …

Styling Products - TONI&GUY - Shine-Zone Spray

1.0

Jul/26/2010

Very heavy product and makes the strands of my hair clump together, almost like a strong hairspray. My hair is quite fine and this just weighed it down.

The smell is also very strong and to me its overpowering, a sickly strawberry scent.

It did provide a shine to my hair but because it is so sticky and heavy would only suit a very straight and sleek style.

Will …

I bought this palette from the Coastal Scents website, I wish I hadn't now because the postage was seriously ridiculous.

I really enjoy the palette, there are a pretty good range of colours, most with amazing pigmentation. For someone like me who is just starting out with makeup and experimenting with looks it is amazing. None of the colours are particularly beautiful, but I know …

I have this in dark blue, I have also tried it in the pearl shine but hated it, horrible rough texture from the glitter, un-hyrdating and a weird frosty colour that didn't suit me at all.

The dark blue one however, it pretty much just feels like a stick of vaseline and I'm not too sure that it isn't really just that. It leaves me lips super hydrated and smooth, but it …

I love this stuff. Classic staple. Here in Australia we get the german version in our drugstores, I have noticed several reviews saying that the German version is better because it doesn't have Mineral oil? It totally does, its actually the second ingredient. I'm assuming that it is actually other chemicals that the mexican one contains.

This cream is super thick, too thick …

Hmm, I had heard rave reviews about this as a base and so bought it for that purpose. Pretty disappointed with that.

Definitely doesn't stop creasing but does keep the colour on.

It is a beautiful colour and I really like the packaging, such a cute little pot. To me it is too heavy to be applied well with a brush and fingers seem to be the only thing that can properly …

Misc Beauty Tools - MAC Cosmetics - Brush Cleanser

Fast drying, removes the colour, but doesn't leave my brushes feeling as clean as baby shampoo. I deep clean my brushes every two days and I don't think I would be happy to only use this instead but it is perfect for spot cleaning in between colours and when I'm just too lazy or rushed to wash them properly

Like everyone else I really wish this came with a pump, tipping …
