This is the perfect nude shade for me as it is more in the beige family than pink in my opinion, which is perfect for me as I tend to stay away from pinks.
It makes your hands look fresh and clean, and it's become my default nail colour.
The formula is sheer and takes three coats to become opaque, but even with three coats it doesn't look thick and messy, nor does it bubble …

This has got to be my signature scent. It's really warm and woodsy and the EDP lasts all day. The packaging is really pretty and it goes on a bit strong but eases up as it dries. I love it and will continue to repurchase.

I'm kind of on the fence with this product. I get all the hype, it's great as an under eye brightener and overall highlighter while not being cakey but really well moisturizing. I don't feel it's worth the high price you pay for it though. The packaging is awesome, but wouldn't repurchase because I think that a lighter shade of concealer does a good job at brightening my …Read more

I bought this concealer in the Custard/Ginger duo and man do I love it! It covers my blemishes perfectly and evens my skin out so well that I don't even feel the need to put foundation on top.
I don't feel like the consistency is too thick or thin, and it doesn't cake up. I find the custard shade in the duo great for brightening up my under eye area and the ginger is perfect …

In my opinion, this is a really nice foundation, It is matte as promised and it feels really velvety and light on the skin, I feel it almost dries to a powdery consistency. I wouldn't say I have oily skin, I just like the matte look. For reference I got the shade Syracuse and am usually an NC40-42.
I tried to apply it with a brush but felt that it turned out too streaky so I applied it …

My Diptyque Pomander candle came in the mail today and as soon as I opened the box I was greeted by the intoxicating smell of orange and cinnamon. It's such a warm spicy smell, which is perfect for winter.
I haven't lit it yet but have placed it on my bedside table and the scent has already taken over my room, not in a nauseating way, it's subtle but still powerful. I'm …

I seriously wanted to love this colour, but I'm a little disappointed. I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect pink shade, usually the pinks are too blue based for me. I thought since this one has more yellow undertones it'd be perfect for me, but next to my NC40-42 skin tone it looked like I had just applied pink highlighter to my lips lol.
I experimented a few ways to …

First off, this brush looks really classy. It's a really unique looking product and although I was hesitant to buy it mainly due to the price but also because it looked unsturdy and a bit awkward to use, I'm glad I did.
The tapered tip does an amazing job at contouring the hollows of your cheeks and diffuses bronzer/blush at the same time, so it cuts the time spent perfecting your …

As an Aussie I use this stuff religiously and as most of these reviews indicate it's an awesome product.
Amazing at moisturizing and keeping my lips soft in the harsh sun as well as in the winter months. Also does an awesome job at keeping hands, elbows and knees supple.
I've lost track of how many times I've repurchased this product, I always have some on hand because …

This has got to be my all time favorite eye shadow ever!! Beautiful antique shimmery gold colour that suits NC40-42 skin perfectly.
I use this with MAC Brown Down, Texture and Black Tied to create a summery golden smokey eye and it's become a standard look for me.
The colour of this eye shadow pops really well so you only need to use a little bit. I've had the same pot for 5 …
