Mascara - Max Factor - Masterpiece Waterproof

5.0

Jan/05/2015

Bought this mascara because it was 50% off in Priceline. Been looking for a replacement for my Maybelline Pulse Perfection waterproof mascara (can't get it in AU now), which I really like because it gets all my lashes, makes them look longer and thicker but doesn't make a lot of mess while doing it.

The Max Factor Masterpiece waterproof seems to do the same thing for me. I …

Lips - KORRES Natural Products - Lip Butter - Plum

Jan/05/2015

For some reason, I can't wear lipstick daily but do need some colour on my lips, otherwise I look like all blood has been drained from my face! Fine if you want to look ill, but not that great if you want to avoid people saying things like 'have you been getting enough sleep?' or 'are you feeling ok?'!

I came across the Korres lip butter because it was on sale …

Hair Styling Tools - InStyler - Ceramic Seashells

Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2015

Received the Instyler Ceramic Seashells for Christmas. Been wanting it all year from watching the infomercials but didn't want to buy it off the TV in case I was going to return it. We saw that BigW had it (they seem to get a lot of things from infomercials sooner or later) and bought it for $119. It came with 8 big shells, 8 regular shells, the heating stand, 8 sharpset (or something) pins …Read more

Pressed Powders - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Voyage

Feb/07/2014

Bought the refill for this, as the compact was too expensive, even on strawberrynet. I ended up putting it in a Shiseido translucent powder compact, which is a perfect fit! It's held in using double-sided sticky tape.

I've tried using this over Shiseido Sheer & Perfect foundation but it seems to make my face look a bit chalky. The real beauty of this compact, for me …

Liquid - SHISEIDO - Sheer and Perfect Foundation SPF 18

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2013

Lately, I've been dabbling in foundations. I wanted something that would even out my complexion (I tend to a bit of redness), make my pores less obvious while looking like I wasn't wearing foundation. I think I've found it! Shiseido's sheer & perfect liquid foundation is lightweight and (I think) very natural looking. I'm NC25 and I bought sheer & perfect in …Read more

Eyeliner - Laura Mercier - Creme Eyeliner

Sep/19/2013

First eyeliner that has long staying power and great colour payoff for me. I've tried pencils, gels, other cremes - a myriad of brands (Mac, Bobbi Brown, Shiseido, Chanel, YSL, Covergirl, Rimmel, etc.) but none lasted more than a couple of hours before fading, melting or settling into fine lines under my eyes - not a good look! Laura Mercier's creme eyeliner is easy to apply using a …Read more

Concealers - SHISEIDO - Natural Finish Cream Concealer

Sep/19/2013

I'm always looking for a concealer that conceals well but is undetectable (blends in to surrounding skin). In the past year, I've had a couple of spots, which I'm very self-conscious of. I don't tend to wear foundation, so need a concealer that will cover the spots and any redness that flares up from time to time. Read about this concealer and thought I'd try it out …Read more

Hair Color - John Frieda - Precision Foam Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2013

Have to say I love the results I get with John Frieda Precision Foam Color! I have very dark brown hair and use the colour in Deep Cherry Brown (3VR). The gloves supplied are black and of good quality - I rinse them at the end of application for future use (used them with another brand of coloring that had easily torn gloves). The colour is easy to mix and apply and the foam doesn't drip …Read more

Hair Color - Garnier - Olia Brilliant Color

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2013

Thought I'd try the new Olia in Frosty Chestnut. I have very dark brown hair that I colour semi-regularly (every 1-2 months or so). The instructions aren't as easy to read (both components of the hair colour are liquid, so I didn't realise I had to gently shake the bottle until about 1/4 way through application). The colour was easy to apply, didn't drip and didn't get …Read more

Lips - Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Pout Lip Stain

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2013

This is a combination gloss and stain. It is a tube applicator and the stain has a gel-like consistency which feels sticky and seems to remain sticky on the lips.

The colour looks much brighter on than it does in the tube (FYI I am a Mac NC25). I bought All Night Long which is the darkest colour. Surprisingly, the colour and shine lasts a very long time! At least 5 hours on me. I …
