Skincare - Face - Yon-Ka - Gommage 303 Exfoliating Clarifying Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2010

Although my skin feels great after using this, I can't help but feel that it's doing my skin damage when I rub it off. It's a fine line timing-wise to get it at a point where it's just started to dry so can be rubbed off easily without tugging the skin, leave it 30 secs too long and it's a much harder job.

Have tried leaving it on for a few hours as you can …

Palettes - Stila - across the usa

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2010

At the bargain price of $10, any complaints seek a little unfair with this palette, but Stila sets such a high standard with its eyeshadows and convertible colors, it's hard not to compare.

Granted, the quality of the eyeshadows isn't as good as Stila's regular line, but the darker shade (City Chick) in particular is stunning, both as a liner and crease color. I'm …

Skincare - Face - trilogy - Rosehip Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2010

I'm on to my 5th bottle of this, and I'm sure I'll keep coming back for more. I love that it's organic and I'm not putting a whole lot of weird ingredients on my face.
Even though it's an oil, it absorbs quickly. I find I don't need to need a moisturiser after this as it does such a good job on its own of hydrating. I wake up in the morning with soft, plump …

Hair - Stila - Jade Blossom hair refresher

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2010

I've got a fringe, so this stuff is perfect for those in between wash days when my fringe needs a bit of a clean but the rest of my hair doesn't. Unlike spray dry shampoos, I really notice a difference with this. You do need to brush your hair really thoroughly after applying, otherwise you'll look like you're going grey (Stila's website says to work the product through …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - OPI Red

5.0

Sep/19/2010

I've lost count of the number of red nail polishes that I have, but this is one of my faces. If you're looking for a classic red polish, neither blue or orange based, then this is the perfect choice. Quality is just as good as the colour, as I can get a week of wear from this with no chipping.

Palettes - Too Faced - Naked Eye Kit

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2010

I've been coveting UD's Naked Palette, but since I got this kit, that craving has waned. Some say that the colours are too subtle, but it is called Naked Eye for a reason. All the colours subtly but very effectively enhance my eyes. They tend towards the cooler side of the spectrum compared to TF's Natural Eye Kit.
The quality of the shadows themselves are up to TF's …

Brows - Billion Dollar Brows - Brow Powder - Taupe

5.0

Sep/11/2010

The brow bar that I go to uses this product and I would always come away from getting my brows done amazed at how great they look, so I finally bought some. The colourful is a perfect match for my dark brown brows, looks really natural and lasts all day. HG material!

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Erase paste

Sep/11/2010

Dark circles, begone! I've had dark rings under my eyes my entire life, but since I discovered this stuff a year ago I barely think twice about them. Erase Paste just doesn't conceal them it brightens the whole area. It doesn't crease or dry out my under eye area and works anywhere I need a bit of spot concealment.

I have light skin, but I use the Medium shade …

Lip Gloss - Stila - Orange Lipglaze

4.0

Feb/02/2009

This looks really bright in the pen, but on the lips it tones down and looks quite pretty. I was worried it would look coral on my lips, but it was more reddish orange. The gloss effect lasts quite well, but I find the colour on my lips fades quite quickly.

Sunscreen - NIVEA - Moisturising Sun Spray SPF30

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2008

After years of trying high end sunscreens I keep coming back to this one. With the spray it's easy to apply and rubs in quickly with no sticky residue. I've never had the remotest sign of sunburn with this, and because it is a spray I find I don't get the 'missed a spot' burnt patches that you can get with regular lotions.
It's well priced, easy to get and never …
