Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Finish Concealer

I so wanted to like this product! I had such high hopes and had heard great reviews from friends (who had dry skin).
I have oily skin, not specifically round my eyes but just a bit of info.
When I first applied this concealer, I thought it was gonna be HG because it is the first concealer that has completely covered and corrected my dark undereye circles. After years of trying different …

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

Mar/22/2013

I really like this compact and use it every day. It hasn't blown me away purely because it doesn't photograph well so it requires a lot of bronzer if I'm going out.

The product itself is very good quality, the powder if silky and light without looking chalky. I like that this powder doesn't cling to flakey areas (usually where I've had a spot) and is a good …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Please Me

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/22/2013

MAC describes this as muted-rosy-tinted-pink and it is an almost dirty looking pink that I find is a nice everyday shade that suits a multitude of looks. The wear time is finnicky with it being a Matte finish as it does wear for hours but depending on the condition of your lips it can be very drying. If I wake up and my lips are slightly chapped then I won't go near this shade but if I have …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Avene - Cleanance K [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/13/2013

I bought this product to help combat my moderate but consistent acne. I use a lot of oil control products and was using salicylic acid but it didn't seem enough so I thought the AHA in this would really help. The price was a little more than I pay for products usually and the packaging is suitable for the purpose.

Onto the product...
I used Cleanance K gel-cream for 5 weeks …

I like this product a lot, I don't love it but I probably WOULD buy it again. I don't know if that makes sense... I use this product every day and I would want to continue using but it doesn't make such a huge difference to my face that I would miss it dearly if I didn't buy it again.

This cream looks very shimmery when it first comes out of the tube but it blends …

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Elvive Triple Resist

Feb/24/2013

I bought this conditioner after deciding that Aussie were not great products for the price/tiny bottles.

After lots of reading bottles and comparing, I bought the Triple Resist conditioner and the L'Oreal shampoo for dyed hair (can't remember the name).

The first time I used this, I noticed that you only needed a small amount to do my about …

I love this blush from the MAC Archie's Girls collection.
Firstly, I rated the packaging a 3, purely because I have no idea who or what Archie's Girls is so I didn't get it but it's kinda cute, little bit tacky but whatever, it's only packaging!

Onto the actual product...
MAC describes it as light neutral coral which I think is pretty on the mark …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Betty Bright

Feb/16/2013

I agree with the previous reviewer. I had Nicki Minaj Viva Glam (first one) and swapped it as it was super bright and super drying. Betty Bright is vivid but not as shockingly so and is a Satin finish which doesn't dry out my lips whatsoever! I love the shade, it's so vibrant and fresh without being overpowering.
MAC describes it as Light Vibrant Peach which is very true when you …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Feb/16/2013

At first, I liked this product but after a few weeks use my opinion has gone down to zilch!

This product does cover but not to a great extent and I don't see any brightening effects. I bought this to use with a concealer to hide my dark undereye circles but this doesn't seem to be having any more effect than any other concealer.
It creases more than a good concealer but …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2013

I originally went to MAC to try Face&Body after hearing great reviews but I was recommended the Fix Fluid as I have oily skin.
I was colour-matched to NW20 which I initially thought was too dark (after I'd bought it and gone home of course) but after plentiful reassurance from friends and family, it is definitely the right shade!

When the SA applied Fix Fluid, I was …
