Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam V Lipglass [DISCONTINUED]

3.0

Oct/25/2014

After a long time of trying lipglosses, I decided I'm not a lipgloss person. In fact, from the time I first bought this lipglass (which was a while ago), I am kind of a lipstick gal now.

I love the colour though, bought it to go with my lipstick (VG V) which I really love the colour of (if only it was less glittery). Just not into how sticky the formulation can be. Smell is nice …

Skincare - Face - Avene - Thermal Spring Water

Am about to open my second bottle.

Have to first confess that I thought it was rather stupid to pay so much money for water to spray over the face. But after I moved to a much colder, drier climate I experienced a total change in skin type. I went from oily-combo skin to really dry flaky skin. I didn't know what to do, and had to overhaul my skin care.

I decided one day …

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Plush Lash [DISCONTINUED]

Second tube? I think.

I love it! It's probably one of my all time favourite mascaras, only a pity it doesn't come in waterproof formulation. I do believe the secret lies in the brush, with the two different lengths - which can sometimes be a little hard to tell apart. nonetheless it works really well, and if it were cheaper I'd be repurchasing it a lot more.

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

This was the first time I've tried a pen style liquid liner. Really wanted to like it since there's not much other option around where I live, but for the price I was paying I'd say this was not really good value.

First up, I like the style of it. I'd say pen style is definitely the way to go. it's a lot easier to navigate, but a great deal of the precision …

loved the smell :)

dont have much to say about the quality of the shower gel itself, in all honesty it is just regular shower gel that yes, smells awesome but price point is a little high for what we're getting.

would repurhase on sale though.

does the job... kinda. im not sure if this made a difference to my really dry cuticles overall at all but i liked the convenience of the packaging. it does somewhat relieve dryness in a pimch when I'm out and about... and it does smell amazing.

price wise... i think we can do a lot better... it really isn't a lot of product for the nzd19 i paid for it. don't know the exact …

Eye Makeup Remover - NIVEA - Daily Essentials Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover

does the job - removes eye makeup (waterproof or not is still yet to be tested, not sure it will see the day to be honest).

it is creamy, not really a problem. the problem is that when I use it, my eyes blur out for a while until rinse... and the worse part is, it burns. maybe its just me, but I don't know how to work gracefully with this.

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash

Sep/23/2009

Bought this because after trying most of TBS's cleansers I was looking for something that's kinda creamy and gentle, not too heavy. most important it has to do the cleasing job, right?

Well this is ... just okay. It does cleanse but can't feel it really cleaning that great. Also, the smell is kinda strong... and it doesn't smell fresh or anything, just kinda smells …
