When I swatched these new lipsticks at the counter, I was instantly sold on the texture and packaging. I decided on #1 Nude Beige which on my hand looked like a nude pink with a little touch of beige. After I got home and applied straight from the tube, I was so disappointed at the color!! It was beige with mauve and gray undertones and maybe a hint of pink, which was just wrong against my NC30 …Read more

I haven't been this happy about a lipstick for a long time!! It's the perfect muted plummy red. Perfect for any occasion. I feel instantly polished when I wear this. There appears to be some shimmer in the tube, but I don't see any on my lips. Also the Glaze formula seems to last longer than the Lustre, but with less shine

The look is phenomenal, it lengths, thickens and doesn't clump. But it cannot hold a curl for more than 5 mins!! (Even with Shiseido mascara base). If ur lashes have a natural curl, then I would highly recommend this mascara. For me, I will be going back to my HG Max Factor 2000 calorie.

I had such high expectations for this product, but this just didn't work for me. When a first applied it, it looked great. I looked slightly tanned, there is no trace of shimmer, and the look was very natural. But after about 4 or 5 hours, my face started to look orange. Keep in mind that I tested this at home, during winter and my face wasn't oily or sweaty. The search continues for …Read more

Deodorants - LUSH - Coconut Deodorant Powder

The only thing I liked about it is the coconut scent. The application can be really messy. U have to put this in a separate jar, preferably with a sifter and must apply with a brush. I've only used this for a few weeks during winter, and sometimes I still get a little damp under the arms. The worst thing about this deodorant is that it gave me pimples on my armpits!!! So I definitely …Read more

This is a miracle product everyone should try. I saw someone on Specktra talking about this product, so I decided to try it since it's only $22 AUD. It's in a small glass bottle with a dropper. The product itself is a thick, clear liquid, similar to MAC Mixing Medium. I apply a thin layer from lashline to brow bone, then do my e/s as usual. Alternatively, you can wet the brush with this …Read more

I got this online and was disappointed when I first saw it, because it looked so similar to Sapphire (from the Sapphire/Twilight Duo), but when applied they are very different. Sapphire is a deep blue with some shimmer, but Azure is gorgeous deep blue with metallic royal blue sheen. Very happy I got it. I only gave it a 4 because I don't think it's a shade I can wear everyday, but I …Read more

Good concept, but awful awful product!! It's not particularly glossy. The look on the lips resembles a glossy lipstick rather than a lipgloss. However the texture unbearable. If you think MAC lipglasses are sticky, wait until u try these. (For reference, I am one of those people who usually like thick sticky glosses) It feels like plastic on my lips. The color lasts as long as any other …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Full on Lust

This was an LE release from the Originals Collection. To my surprise, it's different from the original Lust (permanent shade). It's still a YLBB lipgloss, but have a lot less brown in it compared to Lust. In the tube, it looks very similar to Young Spark, but with less shimmer. On the lips, I don't see any shimmer.

The color is almost idential to my natural lip color …

This so yum!! A very fun and girly fragrance. Reminds me of strawberry cake frosting. I wasn't too sure about it first coz I ordered it online, so I only got the 50ml bottle. When I use it up, I'm so gonna get the 100ml one!! EDIT: After a few uses, it turns out it gives me a slight headache, and I rarely get headaches from fragrances. I'm still keeping this in my collection, but …Read more
