A lot of people seem to say this is a red, I really don't really see it that way, I think it's more pink then red, a cool deep berry red, but the funny thing is I don't usually suit that colour but this one just seems to work, it's really flattering, not too bright, not to dark, not too pink, not too red, it's just perfect, I think you could wear this any season as well …Read more

I've tried two of their blushes, the Outback Primrose is one of my all time favourites, I keep buying high end brands to see if I can find something better but I keep going back to this one, it's such a beautiful natural pink, blends easily and has a nice sheen to it, no glitter, makes you look glowing. I used to own Outback Nutmeg as well and again it was a really natural, terracotta …Read more

Feb/07/2013

So far I've really loved all the Live Clean hair products I've tried, the apple cider shampoo, the fresh water conditioner and the argan oil smoothing cream, but I didn't have much luck with this one, it has the consistency of beeswax so I found it really hard to wash it out of my hair and I think the processes of scrubbing my hair to get it out was probably undoing any of the good …Read more

I really love this lipstick, its hard to describe but it's like a natural rosey berry colour on me. I agree with one of the earlier reviews that its good if you're going for a natural/nude lip but you don't look good with the really pale, flesh coloured lipsticks, this is quite neutral so you can play up the rest of your features. Having said that it's by no means a dull …Read more

I was freaking out because my usual foundation was discontinued and I couldn't find anything that matched my skin colour and was the right consistency but I tried this and the colour was perfect but I felt it was too sheer and didn't cover enough, so I nearly binned it, but I'm glad I didn't because all you need to do is go back over the parts of your face that need a little …Read more

Dec/09/2012

This was disappointing. I was given a gift card and because my hair usually responds well to olive oil I thought this might be a good choice, I was still cringing at the cost of it though, over $50 for a hair mask, even though I wasn't actually paying for it. So I tried it and it did nothing special, my hair was softer and shinier, but it made it quite lank and sat flat on my head and …Read more

Lip Gloss - Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers - Raisin

Dec/09/2012

This is my favourite Burt's Bee's lip shimmer, I see it as a berry/gold colour. I wear it nearly every day. A lot people say it's very dark and over the top, but I have really pale skin and I don't feel that way about it, it just seems to brighten my natural lip colour. Having said that I tend to dab it on lightly, not smear it on thick. I have yellow based skin as well so …Read more

Dec/09/2012

I really wanted to like this because the ingredients sounded so nice, but it just seemed to have the consistency of beeswax, like it was quite difficult to spread over my face and then there was a fair bit of dragging to try and get it off, I had to use a face cloth as well, I don't think you could get it all off with water but I think it wasn't designed for that. My skin looked okay …Read more

Dec/08/2012

This is just okay, does take my make-up off but I wear quite light make up so I can understand why people say it doesn't, it's quite a light, milky consistency. It doesn't break me out or dry out my skin but it does nothing amazing to it either. Could be a good option for sensitive skin like mine, but I did have a scratch on my nose and it stung a little when it got on there so I …Read more

I owe so much to this cleanser, it really saved me! I was having an awful few months with my skin, I was just constantly breaking out, nothing seemed to heal, I was getting little scars everywhere, my skin seemed all congested and dried up at the same time, and it was the first time I noticed 'crow's feet' as well, so I was getting the best of everything! I usually only like to …Read more
