Palettes - Ulta3 - Perfect Your Glow Strobing Kit

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I picked up this palette from a Daiso and although it's marked as $14.80, I'm pretty sure I only paid like $5 for it for some reason. Because of that, no complaints about the price! Even at full price, I think it's reasonable.

The packaging is nothing special, but doesn't feel too flimsy. However, the stiff plastic would probably shatter if dropped.

I …

Palettes - Natio - Illuminating Mineral Powder Face Palette

1.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I bought this on sale at David Jones for $13.96, down from $19.95. The colours were a good range - pinkish for blush, three different shades of pale brown for contouring - and all very pale, which I thought would work well for my skin tone. Most contouring/bronzing powders are far too dark or orange for me.

However, I used it once over the top of my normal make up, and for the next 3 …

Moisturizers - Palmer's - Multi-Effect Perfecting Facial Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2018

This is the first facial oil I ever used. I bought it because it was on sale in the health and beauty aisle in my local supermarket (I'm such a cheapskate this is normally how I find and try new skincare products or cosmetics!).

I have had acne in the past, and my skin can be very dry in winter. However, I get minor hormonal breakouts, and breakouts according to my diet, so my …

This is a review for the orange lid Finger Cara Long Lash mascara. I found this going cheap on koreadepart website and decided to give it a try.

The only reason I wouldn't repurchase this mascara again is that the regular price $23 is more than I would pay normally for a mascara.

I like that the wand head isn't too brushy and big, and the end of it is good for …

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia - HD High Definition Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2018

The first FoA primer I used was the Face Base Primer with Vitamin E and Chamomile. That one was great too, but then I decided to try this HD High Definition Primer.

Always make sure to shake this product well before using, so that you get a paste coming out instead of a clear liquid. Also as you go through the tube the product starts to come out unevenly or in fits and starts which can …

BB Cream - Skin79 - Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Functions - VIP Gold

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2018

This BB cream was great value because I snatched it up half price on the koreadepart website. I've tried the skin79 orange bb cream and the skin79 green bb cream as well, so I wanted to see how this one would compare in terms of colour and performance (I found the green one much too pink/white, and didn't provide as much coverage as I wanted, while the orange one ended up too yellow for …Read more

BB Cream - Etude House - BIG COVER Concealer BB

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2017

I recently discovered that I had two sample sachets of this product that I received free with a purchase in 2016. Price and packaging are 5 stars because there was no N/A option.

I decided to use up one sachet on a day when I didn't have time to do my makeup properly, but I wanted full sun protection (which this does very well, as it is SPF50+).

The shade I had was …

BB Cream - Skin79 - Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Functions UV Interception SPF50+ PA+++ (Vital Orange)

Aug/21/2017

This particular bb cream was my HG foundation for a year or two and I've been through 1 and a half 40mL containers. I loved the texture, the full coverage, the moisturising effect, the SPF 50+, and I thought I'd finally found a shade light enough for my skin. Also the staying power of this was great, up to 8 hours even without primer or powder, and much longer with.

I bought …

Foundations - Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia Stick Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2017

I bought this foundation in the Ivory shade, but it was still a bit too dark/yellow for me, which is the only reason I wouldn't repurchase (I also prefer foundations with SPF 50+). I was impressed at how close it was to my skin colour for a cheap foundation (11.95AUD).

The texture is very nice and creamy and it gave full coverage, perfect for me. It had a slight foundation-y …
