Polishes - REVLON - Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2012

Clearly not everyone likes Top Speed but I think the formulation differs so much between colours, you can't write off the entire line. I have three Top Speed polishes- Bubble, Orchid and Sheer Cotton. They are all so, so different.
.
The Orchid is a pink metallic that lasts for ages (don't like it on my skin tone though). Sheer Cotton is a lovely pale pink/nude colour but it …

Concealers - Almay - line smoothing concealer

Sep/08/2012

Interesting to see the mixed reviews of this concealer. I picked it up because I've been trying to find an undereye concealer that doesn't get stuck in the lines under my eyes or accentuate dryness. I'm 29 and this is an increasing issue for me. I recently tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer and was so disappointed at how drying and awful …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2012

For reference, I'm 29 and have combination skin (dry cheeks and nose, oily chin).
.
First impressions: I would say the product is a little disappointing first off because the jar is not entirely full, as it is in promotional pictures. The jar is heavy and glass which makes the product seem a bit more high end. I hate that it's not a pump product, but I guess you can't …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Tough as Taupe

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2012

I'm wondering if I got a bad batch or something because no one seems to have the same issue as me- THESE DON'T LAST! '24 hour color tattoo' would suggest that the product is long wearing, right? Wrong! I've used Tough as Taupe in a smokey eye as well as a base for a lighter look and each time the eyeshadow has disappeared in about an hour. It's weird because it goes …Read more

Liquid - Bourjois - Flower Perfection Youth Extension Foundation

2.0

Jun/11/2012

Not my favourite bourjois foundation, that's for sure. For the record, I much prefer the Healthy Mix Gel foundation (red cap) to this. I've tried applying this with fingers, Real Techniques buffing brush and a sponge.
.
Pros: lots of coverage, way more than I was expecting and way more than the Healthy Mix ones. Lightest colour is lighter than the Healthy Mix lightest, which …

Polishes - Chi Chi - Salon Formula

Apr/28/2012

I randomly pick up a Chi Chi polish every now and again but it's not a 'go to' nail brand for me. In saying that though, I've never been disappointed by a Chi Chi polish. They are so ridiculously cheap and come in so many shades and styles (glitter, shimmers, shatters etc).
.
My favourite shade at the moment is Hopelessly Devoted which is a medium-deep pink that is …

Mascara - Max Factor - Xperience Volumising Mascara

Apr/25/2012

Hands up if you got this in the Priceline Beauty Bag? I've been a long time devotee of Max Factor's False Lash Effect and have been disappointed every time I've tried any new mascaras since. This was free so I had nothing to lose in trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised and have used it every day since getting it. It's curiously called 'Volumising Mascara' but I …Read more

Palettes - Stila - Light Up The World

Apr/25/2012

Strawberrynet had this at 75% off so I had to snap it up, in spite of the so-so reviews. I agree that not all the colours are particularly pigmented. The lighter ones especially are a bit hit-and-miss. Some of the more bronzey and purpley colours are quite lovely and are highly pigmented. I apply these shadows over a cream eyeshadow because they stay a lot better and I don't get as much fall …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational in Sugar Plum #330

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2012

This is a sweet pinky colour, with a hard-to-explain mauve undertone and peachy gold highlights. It gives me that "my lips but better" look. The fomula feels really creamy and goes on a bit like a cream balm. It has a slight sheen to it so it looks glossy even when it's been on a while. Doesn't have a lot of staying power so you'll need to reapply after a meal. Overall, I …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow quad " Sterling Rose "

3.0

Mar/30/2012

Yes the colours are lovely but they are not very pigmented. The formulation is just okay but can be a bit chalky. No problems with fallout.

Only the bluish colour actually lasts all day (I've had it on since 8am this morning and it's the only colour still remaining at 11pm). The pink champagne colour is nice but doesn't show up very well and disappears very quickly. The …
