Moisturizers - Olay - Fresh Effects Satin Finish Lotion

May/26/2017

Yes yes yes. I tried this because it was on sale and immediately went to buy 3 backups. If that doesn't communicate how much I like this I don't know what will. It's not oily, really is a true satin, works well under makeup, dries down and isn't sticky and actually moisturises the skin. The lotion looks almost shimmery, when you pump it out its yellowy and when you spread on …Read more

I adore this foundation, especially mixed in with moisturiser (really any but I especially like olays fresh effects w the satin finish). I use warm beige (no.5) despite it being significantly deeper than my skin as its the closest undertone in the range. If you're finding it hard to get a match if you're light medium, I recommend finding one with your undertone as it makes it barely …Read more

amazing! truly!! This is a wonderful mascara, I wish they made it in brown but that's my only tiny drawback. I love this more than lancome's hypnose (which flakes, barely holds and just clumps w spidery lashes). I find it very comparable to lancomes doll eyes (my HG) and if I use it with the doll eyes wand, its virtually identical except the smell. For the price this is phenomenal …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Tinted Primer

It doesn't work like a mascara, but it's not supposed to. That being said I think it provides a nice amount of length, is a subtle brown not too light but not jarring like a true black. It is nice for a natural look but still adds dimension and helps boost your lashes. I have repurchased the sample sizes as I hardly make it through mascara's before they dry out and benefits smaller …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional: Matte Rescue

I'd recommend purchasing the sample size as it comes with so much product I doubt you'd run through within 6 months. I use this every day and it works great. That being said it's winter where I am currently so summer will test the true strength. It doesnt minimise pores so I'd go in w a pore minimising primer afterwards if that's a concern for you. It smells pleasant, if …Read more

This is honestly my favorite blush and it lasts forever. It really is perfect for my skin no matter what depth I'm at. Its matte but not dry or flat looking and really flattering. It's buildable and doesnt kick back or deliver too much colour to the cheek and I find it compliments most bronzers and highlights without causing any colour clashes or reddening a contour.

I have combo skin but I'm crazy oily on the nose and I still LOVE this foundation. It's really great, build-able - I find the 'sheer' coverage actually very high and yet still natural. It smells great. The shade I have is 52 vanilla and I won't lie, it's crazy light for me but I make it work and it's a really great foundation, I just wish it were more yellow …Read more

After being fed up w chunky highlighters (eg. soft and gentle and the loumanizers), a friend of mine recommended I try this out and I'm glad I did.

It gives a noticeable but 'natural' look to the skin. As it's meant to be a bronzer/face powder its finely milled and not glittery, doesn't emphasize pores or create texture where there is none and I would even go …

NC-25 / warm olive - yellow undertone

I love this colour on me, it looks really flattering and even lightens my skin tone a little. Its a lovely deep warm nude but isn't pinky which I like. The formula is great, smooth and creamy and dries quick. Its comfortable to wear and the lasting power is pretty great :) Overall really enjoy it and its definitely a go to colour for me …
