Lotions/ Creams - Paula's Choice - RESIST Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2013

I'm reviewing this as a face moisuriser- not for body. For the face, I give it 5 stars, as I wanted an affordable BHA option with antioxidants and no added colours or fragrance which was lightweight for my combination skin for use at night. In that regard, it shines.

It is packaged opaquely, in a long flat tube with a screw on lid, which the product "stands" on, making …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (All)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2012

I love the colour (a dark intense brown), and I love how this product washes off easily with practically any kind of cleanser without giving me the dreaded panda eyes. It doesn't smudge, but it can flake in really hot weather, unless I wear eye primer.

Although to be totally fair, I can never go without eye primer, as even gel liners easily smudge on me and would disappear within …

Toners - HADA LABO - Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion

Apr/08/2012

It's rare that a product does what it says it can do- and this toner does it.

Except for the whole one drop locks in the ocean or nonsense similar to that. Although I think it was just the advertising jingle stuck in my mind. Luckily, most of the writing on the bottle is in Japanese, which I can't read, so it's technically not lying to me on that point.

This …

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - 6 Piece Brush Set

Created with Sketch.

Jan/26/2011

I bought this set just for the blush brush, as I managed to buy this for $7 off ebay, rather than $17 in Priceline (we get ripped off on cosmetics in Australia)- expecting to throw the rest out or go to the cosmetic graveyard in the back of my drawer.


However, to my pleasant surprise, I managed to find a good use for all of the brushes- even the lash comb, which seems to be the …

Blush - Stila - orchid convertible color [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2010

As a blush, Stila's convertible colors are wonderful. It suits my skin tone (NC25-30), giving it a beautiful raspberry like flush on the cheeks, as if I just came in from the cold and is easily blended out. Slightly sticker than a powder blush, but it gives a nicer dewy appearance than most powder blushes so it evens out.

I use a blush brush by gently touching the pan then …

Foundations - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Stick SPF 15 ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Oct/02/2010

I bought this product, not as a foundation, but a more natural under eye concealer, as I thought it was a better deal for the price, compared to other concealers (cost in terms of weight).


As a foundation, I personally found it a bit heavy, and made my combination skin feel congested, and prone to breakouts when used everyday- probably due to the ingredients which allows …

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - retractable kabuki

Dec/02/2009

I absolutely love this brush!!! It's a great dupe for TooFaced teddy bear Kabuki retractable brush.


The bristles are so soft and easy to work with as it is extremely dense and durable, picks up product nicely which makes blending a dream as well as being great quality for money, and much cheaper than any department store kabuki brush, more environmentally friendly to boot …

Blush - REVLON - ColorStay Mineral Blush in RoseBerry

Dec/02/2009

I got this blush on sale for $AUD 8, but I'm not sure if I would buy it full price for around $20. I love how it looks on me, the price, not so much.


The color is sheer and natural, which is perfect for my olive tone, NC30-35 skin. Although I was concerned about the shimmer in the packaging (sparkles would have been a deal breaker for me, especially for daytime wear), it …

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2009

I never used to use facial wash. I just washed by face with water and that was just fine with me. Then I got acne. I used benozyl peroxide on its own, but it wasn't good enough. I still had the acne and dry flaky skin from the BP.


Then I started including Cetaphil and a SPF 15 suncreen into my routine. My face cleared up ALOT. I bought a huge 1L bottle and pour it into a …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2009

I love the classic packaging of this lipstick. It reminded me of glamorous times, when women would go to the powder room and apply this lipstick and gossip in front of a gilded embellished mirror. There's also a modern and helpful "window" at the top of the tube so you can see the colour.


The lipstick itself is very opaque and goes on with a creamy finish …
