WORD OF WARNING. SEPTEMBER 2017.

The new powders contain mica! Why they have changed a great powder is something I'm not sure of. SHAME ON YOU RMS.

Old powders contain Silica only in the ingredients. The old powders are in frosted packaging. If your packaging is smooth and shiny then you have the new ones containing mica. Double check the ingredients at the bottom of …

Great brush for powdering the face. This blush over the (scratchy) Powder brush any day!
I'll use it to liberally bronze my face also.

Bought it in a pack with the sculpting brush and fan brush. Two thumbs up for this pack.

This claims to give you a flawless, yet Born This Way coverage. Medium-full.

I have relatively normal skin, with dry patches around my nose. I get oily down my T zone, but not sweaty oily, just GLOWY by the end of the day - nothing that would make me look greasy. My shade is roughly an NC20 in MAC terms. GA Luminous Silk in 4. GA Lasting Silk in 4.5.

Porcelain is darker …

Essence Long Lasting Eyeliner in Hot Scorch is a good dupe. Plus it's mechanical. And for $5?
I'm on my second tube of it after finishing UD Bourbon.

This eyeliner colour is perfect for black/dark brown eyes. I imagine if you have green/blue eyes it would look beautiful also. I get so many compliments with this colour, it's amazing! Only con with UD is that you …

This product is disappointing. I have BR-1 which in the pan, is a variety of peaches, rose golds, gold and soft burgundy, but when on the skin are slight variations of copper orange.

The textures are not consistent. The burgundy colour is chalky and patchy. The lightest golden highlight shade, though beautiful, is powdery with flecks of shimmer. The copper is absolutely stunning when …

If you count Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof, Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof, and Covergirl Lash Blast (Orange tube) Waterproof amongst your favourites... Do not buy this mascara.

The aforementioned mascaras are my drugstore favourites in order from most-medium volumising. I like mascaras to lengthen, hold curl and give lots of volume.

This mascara 1) …

Fantastic soap for cleaning brushes. I recently purchased a set of Zoeva eye brushes and was looking around for a great method to wash my brushes without drying them out.
I was tempted to try out the DIY brush cleaner on Makeupalley (Olive oil, dish washing detergent, vinegar method) but it was so wasteful with countless ingredients. Prior to this soap, I had only trusted Daiso Cleaning …

I'm torn. Absolutely torn.
This foundation gives me wonderful coverage as pigment is dense yet texture is thin. There is nothing cakey about this foundation. Colour match for my NC20 is perfect with 4.0. This leaves my skin looking beautiful. I had a lady ask if I use expensive treatments or serums on my skin because it looked buttery and plump. What that even means, I have no idea! It …

BLOODY BRILLIANT! *Ron Weasley voice*

Perioral dermatitis sufferer here. Sensitive lips are an understatement. I'm allergic to beeswax also.
Having been a lip balm fanatic all these years.. I have developed contact dermatitis to beeswax. Contact dermatitis happens when you are exposed to a certain ingredient so often that you become sensitive to it. It can happen with …

Australis has broaden their shade range. There are now 6 shades in total available, three new shades in their range!

I am an NC20 and am shade "Natural". The second lightest shade.

I use this to set my foundation and it gives me an absolutely flawless complexion, but nothing plastic like those ladies at the MAC counters - sorry but some look like wax figures from …
