Shampoo - LUSH - Solid Shampoo - Brazilliant

This works a treat to clarify and add shine to natural hair. BUT... (read: BUT A WARNING) if you have chemically dyed hair, it, and most other LUSH shampoos, with strip your hair of all dye. If you combine this bar with the vitamin c hair treatment then follow up with a coconut oil hair mask, I am sure you can fix any bad dye job without bleach. I have chemically dyed hair so I no longer use LUSH …Read more

Lipstick - CHANTECAILLE - agave

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2016

This lipstick is soft, smooth, light (you don't feel it on your lips, so it's not waxy), and smeary so it transfers a lot. It shows up every line on my lips so I have to actually smile in order to fill in cracks. If I have even one flake or wrinkle on my lips, the lipstick cakes. This way of applying lipstick is really bothersome to me. "Agave" is a light peachy beige with a …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2016

I know this is a popular product but it doesn't work for me. It was so expensive and I bought it for my wedding without first checking makeupalley (dumb me). Diorshow Mascara runs like crazy. I have even tried to save the tube by using it as eyeliner. I used eyelid primer by urban decay, used a base eyeshadow, then lined my upper lids with the mascara using an eyeliner brush. By mid-morning …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Raisin Rage

4.0

Oct/04/2013

I think this is an OK product if you want your lips to look shiny. It is not something that looks "natural". I find that even the lighter colours, such as "super natural", make my lips look very glassy, especially in photographs. "Raisin Rage" is a blue-based wine colour that doesn't suit my NC25 olive (leaning warm) complexion unless I wear coordinating blush …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2013

I have really started to like the lip butters. So far I have "pink truffle", "berry smoothie", "candy apple", "fig jam", and now "red velvet". My skin tone is neutral/warm olive so I didn't think this product would suit because of the blue undertones, but the colour of this lip butter is actually bluish, brownish red. Perhaps because my …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - All Colors

2.0

Jun/20/2013

These lip balm stains were a good idea but the execution was terrible. I do like the non-sticky, moisturising feel of the product, and the packaging was not too bad either. I do NOT like the fact that the colour of the product and the stain it leaves behind are different. I bought the colours "romantic", "honey", "charm" and "precious". The first two left …Read more

Hair - L'Oreal Paris - Elnett Hairspray

OH MY GOODNESS. This smells like the early 1980s. I love it. I love the smell. I shake the can, spray it at my hair, and smell like the early 1980s all day. I also like the design of the can. It's classic. The mini version is great for tossing in my bag if I need to travel. As for the ability of this product to hold my hair style in place... well, I bought the "average" hold …Read more

Eyeliner - COVERGIRL - Perfect Blend Eye Pencil

May/22/2013

I gave this product a slightly low point for price because here in Australia, everything cosmetic-related is too expensive -- heck, everything is expensive(!)/end_rant. On to the review: as I am a woman of a certain age, I have been shying away from the drugstore cosmetic aisles for a few years now. But recently I have discovered gems (Lanolips, Revlon lip butters... etc) and this is among them …Read more

I've been using the sample of this product for a week now and just bought a full sized version. If you get a sample, you need to make sure the product is shaken or stirred properly before application. The full-sized bottle has a little ball inside to help combine the ingredients when you shake it, the sample does not and the ingredients can separate into pigment at the bottom of the sample …Read more

Pressed Powders - theBalm Cosmetics - Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder

Apr/30/2013

I don't get excited by the packaging. I don't mind the cardboard, but the print and name are silly and I'm not always in the mood for silly. What I like about this product is that it does not contain talc, bismuth oxychloride, or cyclopentasiloxane. I have dermatitis-prone, sensitive, clog-prone skin and I react badly to all those ingredients. This powder sets the makeup around my …Read more
