Liquid - essence - Stay All Day 16h Long-Lasting Foundation

First off, I love Essence. As in I'm a big fan. Especially of their mascaras and nail polishes.
But this foundation is the worst I have ever tried. The lightest shade was VERY orange on me. I had to take it off immediately. There was no way to make it work. It just looked so bad. It also has perfume in it, which is completely unnecessary. I am giving it to my Italian boyfriend's …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask

This mask is amazing. I'm not exaggerating. It soothes my dry, sensitive, atopic skin and gives it moisture, and when I take the mask off, my skin is looking toned, refreshed and glowing. My skin looks brand new, this mask is just so fantastic.
The only thing I don't like about it is the scent - It is too sweet for my liking, and I prefer products without perfume. But that is a …

I have used this for three weeks now. This is a really incredible foundation. When I have it on, it looks so natural that I cannot tell I'm wearing foundation, and it makes my skin look perfect and gives it a healthy glow, nothing over the top but just gorgeous and subtle. On top of that it has great lasting power, it lasts all day on my skin and I don't need to put on more during the …Read more

I have used this for some weeks now. I have it in the shade 15 which I have read some find a bit too pink. I don't have that experience with it at all. I have warm undertones and this is not pink on me at all. It is neutral, more on the yellow side. It stays on all day, covers just as much as I need and best of all - It doesn't crease! I have really struggled to find a concealer that …Read more

Pressed Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - Finishing Powder Banana

It looks fine immediately upon application, but then somehow after only an hour or so, it makes the concealer under my eyes crease and look dry like hell, and looks like a white powder just sitting on top of my makeup. I'm disappointed. I will not be repurchasing.

I must say I'm a little bit surprised to see these haven't got a better rating on here.
I have three shades of this product: Exotic, Bedtime Flirt and Ruffle Trim.
All of these colours apply beautifully on me. Opaque and they dry down quickly. I have never had an issue with them feeling sticky or not drying completely. Best of all, they last all day on me. I drank and ate with …

I guess I'm in the minority here, because I love this mascara. I agree that the formula is very wet, but for me it is just a matter of working with it. This gave me long, separated, thick lashes. I love the 'regular' Lash Sensational (in the pink tube), but this is also one of my favourites now. I can only recommend it.

I'm on my third bottle of this. It's amazing. I just can't get over how natural it looks. It makes your skin look radiant, and you only need the tiniest amount to achieve this. It's better than high-end foundations I've tried. I'm sticking to it!

Moisturizers - LUSH - Skin Drink

Feb/28/2016

This is a really nice moisturizer that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
However - Use it in the evenings. I used it in the morning, left it to sink into my skin and then tried to apply makeup on top of it. Mega disaster - As it says on the product itself, it leaves a protective layer on the skin and I had forgotten about this, so my makeup would not settle on my skin and looked …

This is a review for the Cherry version... I have very dark brown hair, and this made my roots all white! My mother asked why my hair was white, and then joked that she now knew how I would look when I was 60, lol. It stinks, it's just a horrible scent, like a very fake, strong perfume. It gave me a massive asthma attack. It's now in the bin!
