Beautiful muted teal, great color for when you want something a little different but nothing too out there (I usually wear neutral polishes). One or two coats is perfect. Does not chip for days, applies smoothly (as with most Essie polishes). Get it!

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Sheertone blush in Tenderling [DISCONTINUED]

Tenderling is my favorite blush at the moment. I've had it for a year or so and used it a couple of times but threw it in the back of my drawer and forgot about it. I'm so glad I rediscovered it! On my NW20 skin it is the perfect nude/peach/neutral color that warms up my face without throwing any orange. I use it on my cheeks, up my temples, lightly across my nose and chin and it …Read more

Pretty average product, the color is nice but nothing I haven't seen before. It is very easy to apply and blend but it is not very pigmented and the color blends away a little when you put it on. Also it creased over TFSI, I might try it over a paint pot to try and intensify the color and keep it in place... although I do not have very oily lids and am surprised it creased over TFSI because …Read more

This is a pretty average mascara, but I guess you are getting what you paid for, it's pretty cheap. More lengthening than volumising on my lashes, but it doesn't blow me away. Okay for a natural look, I use it for work. I like the brush for getting into the corner lashes though. Would not repurchase.

I love a duo eyeshadow and this one is no exception. The shades are a pearly luminescent silver/white and a blue based charcoal with shimmer. As the posted below noted, it can create a lovely look without the need for any other shadows. Good pigmentation and blends nicely. Packaging is classic Estee Lauder. Would repurchase, if it was still available!

Tonga is a beautiful muted, neutral pink very suitable for paler skin tones (I am NW20 and it looks great on my skin). It gives a natural flush that does not look overdone or too much, and it suits nearly every eye makeup look. I love the packaging too. I have been reaching for this one nearly every day lately!

Just a standard powder highlight really, nothing groundbreaking, it's nice having the two shades to choose between to match your look... Not too frosty which I like but I'm not in love with it so will not repurchase - but will happily use it up in the meantime.

Bare Study is nice under other shadows, and also by itself. I haven't noticed any creasing with this but I always wear either UDPP or TFSI underneath. I have had this for around a year and no sign of drying out yet. I would repurchase this one.

I have this palette in Keshi Pearls - a light cool-toned champagne, a deep brown, and a darker blue (almost duo chrome with brown undertones).


It is a mineral trio eyeshadow, that are free from parabens and talc. It retails for AU$30 so $10 per shadow - a great deal for the quality of each of the shadows. They are incredibly soft, blendable, velvety goodness. The packaging is …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - It's a miracle

The purple side of this shadow is amazing - shimmer mid toned purple with pink reflects, so buttery smooth and blendable. The glittery side is absolutely crazy but I love it - I like to use it in my inner corners, it's kind of hard to use elsewhere (I usually wear neutrals). The glitter is quite chunky really so there is a bit of fall out but it's not too bad. A fun eyeshadow!
