Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Lash

I'm surprised that this mascara has such a low rating! In my personal experience, it ranks around #3 or #4 - somewhere behind Kiss Me's Heroine Make Long & Curl (whatever it's called) and Chanel's Inimitable. Two things I love about it: (a) the big fat wand and (2), the super-wet super-lush formula. The former gives my stick-straight eyelashes plenty of 'lift' …Read more

Mascara - Bobbi Brown - Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara

Apr/21/2012

It's been a long time since a product has disappointed me this dramatically. I received a sample size as part of a GWP, and tossed it after just one month. It's low-end quality with a high-end price tag. I have very straight lashes, and this would not hold a curl for love nor money. More irritatingly, it clumps, so it looks like you have spiky little lashes. I find that I also tend to …Read more

A little about my skin: <br>
I have generally good skin that's been breaking out steadily for the past 8 or so months due to stress and hormones. My skin is normal/combination, with slight dryness in the cheeks and some oiliness in my T-zone. I have fairly small pores and they're quite easily clogged. Onto the review!<br>

<br>
Dior Peach Serum (Peche Serum) is undeniably a gorgeous thing. It is also a scarily expensive thing; $32USD/$58AUD for 2g of product. Dior have purportedly infused this with their anti-ageing collagen-building skincare serum; I'll admit it's very, very creamy/gel-ish, and not at all oily. It boasts a …

Lipstick Queen's Black Shine pot ($22USD/$36AUD for 0.494oz/12.5g) is a gorgeous thing. I'm well aware that the black-lip trend is pretty much dead at the moment in the Northern hemisphere, but here in Australia we're just coming into autumn/winter and this gloss is very …

<br>
Lipstick Queen Poppy King's newest range of glosses, packaged in test-tube form with teeny doefoot wands. My main gripe with these are that they are slightly sticky (less so than her Shine pots though!) and that there are no matte/creme colours. I'd like to see her make a warm, medium-toned one too. Also …

Becca's lipsticks have been a long time coming. I think they are worth the wait. The colour range is rather limited (hopefully expanding!) and the wear time is not as good as I'd hoped (about average, maybe a little longer). However, I'm very fond of the texture - gel-ish, less 'oily' …
