Top/Base Coats - REVLON - Quick Dry Top Coat

3.0

Oct/26/2014

Bought this because my favourite Sally Hansen top coat in the red bottle was all sold out at my local Superdrug.
Pros: leaves nails looking shiney, dries quickly, nice strong finish
Cons: makes polish crack after a couple of days
Won't be buying again, I hate the look of cracked nail polish.

Mascara - CHANTECAILLE - Faux Cils Mascara

Lovely mascara, adds heaps of volume, curls and lengthens. Makes lashes look thick and glossy. Great wand too for application. However one lippy off because for me the mascara transfers and smudges beneath my eyes, definitely not ideal!

Blush - BECCA - Mineral Blush

Jun/08/2014

I'm a former makeup artist for Becca, and have since moved on to work for a more expensive, high end cosmetics house. I still go back to these blushes though, in fact the majority of my personal kit is still Becca. These blushes are beautiful as they have a lovely sheen, which adds radiance to the skin, blend wonderfully and aren't powdery. Gypsy is perfect for fair skin types and …Read more

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Laguna

I'm on my second compact of this bronzer and have just hit pan. I love this stuff to bits! I have pale skin with yellowy undertones and this is a nice neutral bronzer for my skin - not too orange, shimmery or reddish. I use it more as a contour as bronzing can look a little odd on me when I haven't been tanning. It applies so nice and evenly, I find some bronzers can be particularly …Read more

Lipstick - Illamasqua - ESP

Jun/08/2014

This is a coool shade! I've been looking for a proper bright purple for ages, not one with obvious red undertones etc. It is SO hard to apply out of the bullet, far too matte and uneven, so I always use a precision angled brush to apply it. I usually use a base of lipbalm since it is such a dry matte formula. Takes a while to get it even looking, but definitely worth it once the colour is …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANTECAILLE - brilliant gloss

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2014

I have the Brilliant Gloss in the shade Pretty. It is a perfect pinky shade for my colouring (I am Alabaster in their Future Skin foundation and I have black hair). The Brilliant Glosses are beautiful because they have a subtle micro shimmer and can be applied so that you have a super glassy lip. They are hydrating and relatively long lasting, and once they have worn off a bit they don't …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Illamasqua - Hydra Veil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2014

I use this product after my Chantecaille Vital Essence serum and after the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation. It helps the dewy Skin Base to stay on fantastically through the day, and makes my skin look more healthy and hydrated. I've been getting a lot of comments since using this combination of products, saying that my skin looks lovely. I do find the little plastic scoop and packaging a …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Lycra Flex Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2013

I bought this the other day to replace my Max Factor False Lash Effect, which I've been using on and off for a few years and it pretty much a good go-to mascara. I hoped that the Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex mascara would add more volume to my lashes and make them appear more luscious. Unfortunately, while the mascara is definitely thickening, I found it to be clumpy compared to the smooth more …Read more

Lipstick - Stila - Color Balm Lipsticks (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2013

I really like this product. I bought it for about $45 (which is a little steep for a coloured lip balm in my opinion but I thought I'd give it a go anyway) and was attracted by the colour Pink Violet because I've been looking for a lipstick like that. It is very moisturising like it claims, just like a lip balm, with a nice amount of pigmentation which can be built up, quite bright, and …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sigma - E40 Tapered Blending (was SS224)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/07/2013

I like this brush because it is decent quality for a good price. While it isn't as amazing as some other high end blending brushes, it still does the job and that's all I need. I prefer it as a blender to the E25 because I find this brush to be better for crease application and it doesn't seem to soften the edges like the E40. The E40 is soft and fluffy, but it does shed a little …Read more
