This is a great tinted moisturiser - just the right amount of coverage (which is just a touch, because lets face it, it's not a foundation) and it doesn't leave me oily! The thing that really made me buy this though, was the SPF factor. It cost me near to $30 in Australia, but the tube says it will last for 24 months and the tube is a huge 64ml.

I have to admit I didn't try many brow pencils before landing on this one, but I still won't ever hesitate to call it the best eyebrow pencil ever!
It's great for beginners and the packaging is absolutely lovely. I bought this in Mecca in Australia for about $40, but once I compared it to the price of the other cult favourite brow products like the Anastasia products, you get …

I used to enjoy experimenting with other blush brands, but now I've tried MAC I will only ever stick to my two favourites (MAC and Tarte). This is so finely milled but the powder doesn't fly everywhere and get stuck in all the cracks of the packaging. I enjoy being able to see the colour through the packaging and how sturdy it feels.

I am very fair so if I use this as a …

This blush is alright. Just alright.
I love the smell and the packaging is cute but I bit too bulky, I'm really not sure why it's so boxy and the brush inside was useless and poor quality to me.

The colour is nice in summer and spring, with a very light hand on my fair skin it's nice and gives me a bit of a glow. I don't like the texture though, at first it was …

I have found my holy grail everyday blush with this product.

It's a pretty baby pink that looks very natural and goes great both alone or with a highlighter above it. I love that it's matte and is great for fair skinned ladies.

I have had this for a year now, use it most days and the tarte print is still slightly visible on the product, so I'm sure this will …

This was my standard blush for years and whenever I use it, I remember why. It's a gorgeous colour and I love not needing to use a highlighter when I used this blush. I have to use this blush with a light hand, but applied correctly its so pretty. The texture is nice and the packaging is compact and great for travelling with a nicely sized mirror inside. If you're looking for a standard …Read more

I have this highlighter in stick form and I enjoy using it when I do, but I don't reach for it every day. It is fairly expensive, so I was disappointed when the packaging broke a few weeks after purchasing it. It is a beautiful colour and goes on alright when applied with my fingers, but beware of swiping the stick over your face... it will wipe your foundation right off. You get a lot of …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray

Sep/19/2016

I purchased this because I was still on the fence about spend the money for an UD setting spray. I feel it's a good alternative or first setting spray, as it has been for me. It keeps me matte for a few hours and helps my blush to last longer. I personally love the smell and the fresh feeling it gives my skin. The price point is very reasonable, so I have no complaints that it doesn't …Read more

Sep/19/2016

I have oily skin and spent a long time search for a powder that didn't make me look cakey.
This is a lovely translucent powder and I usually set it with the MYX Matte Finish setting spray after applying it under my eyes and over my T-zone with a big powder brush. The white doesn't show up, even in flash photography. By the evening I am a bit oily in the nose area, but it is great …

I can't say I love this concealer but it does a good job. It does last all day and is great under eyes, but it can crease a lot and is a bit too thick for my liking. I will use it until it's run out but I would not purchase it again. The packaging is really nice, feels luxurious but I would actually rather a plastic package because I am always worried the glass tube will break when …Read more
