Blush - BECCA - Creme Blush in hyacinth

Nov/11/2013

Purchased as part of the Becca Anniversary collection Vintage Jewel Lip, Cheek, and Eye pallet, this blush is my favourite item of this quad, and despite heavy usage appears to have hardly been dented. I apply this product on my Kevyn Aucoin SSE SX08 skin using my fingers, and a light patting motion results in naturally bright rosy cheeks that look lit from within. Lasts a reasonable number of …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

Great product, and superior to other makeup sponges around. Its composition and shape really enables economical usage of creamy / waxy / pressed mineral foundations, as it presses and spreads the product on the face so beautifully.

My details: skin colour is yellowish, and other foundations I have worn, such as Christian Dior nude natural glow in 031, Shu Uemura architect in 754, have always been a tad too pink for me. Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere in Sable 30 is close to the perfect colour, however the alcohol left an unattractive sheen and dried out my normal/dry skin. This shade, SX08, is *perfect*, and this review is based on …Read more

YES YES YES I would buy this again, in a hearbeat. I'm still using my first bottle, and it's always in my handbag. Anyway, details first. I would most likely be an NC30, with normal to dry light tanned skin (if that makes sense) veering towards yellow, like Grace Park in Hawaii 5-O. I found 31 to be the *perfect* because there is so little pink in it. It's somewhat light on my skin …Read more

Jul/15/2010

I hadn't bought any "drugstore" products for a whiel (ie Cover Girl, Maybelline etc) but I was in desperate need of a new concealer after my Illuminare Extra Coverage ran out. Next stop was going to be either the Becca concealer of Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, however with my recent credit card woes I couldn't justify spending $40AUD+ on those items. So I traipsed over to …Read more

This is THE fragrance for me. Bought it off strawberrynet and I received the brown version. I can't describe this any better than the wonderful reviewers below, suffice to say this is definitely a cool weather scent. But every nose is different.

I am in love with this product! So glad I bought 2 when it was on sale on strawberrynet a few months ago. Now I regret I didn't get more!

Application of this is super easy and delivers a beautifully intense, truly black line on my upper eyelid. I actually apply on the lashline itself after UDPP and it stays on the whole day. On my waterline this doesn't work so well - but …

This product is proof that you do get what you pay for. Thanks once again to fellow MUAers for your recommendation, as I normally wouldn't have splashed this amount of money ($85AUD) on a powder. I love this powder, like my UPDD it's permanently in my handbag to take with me in case, oh, the world ends and I still want to look polished wherever it is I end up. For reference: colour …Read more

Thank you, thank you MUA for if not for you, I would never have discovered this miraculous product. This isn't sold in Australia, and I'm so grateful to my friend for purchasing two of these on my behalf at the recent Urban Decay sale. As per the previous reviews, this makes eyeshadow and eyeliner last like there is no tomorrow, even my BodyShop eyeshadow quad and Lancome Artliner (both …Read more

I am in love with this product and would unfailingly have given it the full five stars, if not for the minor issue of colour. For reference the closest foundation shade to my skin is Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder in Sable. I am fair to medium with yellow undertones, and the closest shade was Beige 003, which is more pink, hence the powder finish of the Chanel. Despite this, I am still giving this an …Read more
