Fell in love with this palette the moment I saw it at the Laura mercier counter in myer! The saleswoman did a perfect job at sucking me in to buy it since she told me its limited edition and the last one left haha.
The eyeshadows are the perfect neutral colors and can be mixed to create the perfect smokey eye. Rich cocoa, pale pink and black plum are all matte colors. African violet, buff …

Bought this after a friend recommended it to me.
PROS
-I must say, this product is hands down the most natural looking foundation I have ever tried, literally leaves my skin flawless and looks like I have no foundation on. My -preferred foundation in terms of 'looks'.
-Sometimes I use this as a setting powder and it's pretty good too.
- I love how it's …

love. It. My new HG lipstick!
Don't always rate products 5 lippies so rating this 5 is saying something...
Being Kim k's signature lipstick, this shade is quite renowned. I have a similar complexion to her so this colour does wonders for me. Despite other people's negative reviews, I actually love the formula of this, MAYBE because my other Mac lipstick (satin in brave) …

The pigment of this lipstick is absoloutely perfect for my olive toned skin. A friend commented on how it's practically the same colour of my lips (which is good for me since I use this shade as an everyday lipstick).
Can be worn everyday as I mentioned, or paired with a smokey eye look on a night out. Also looks good with a layer of lipgloss on top.
Only issue with this …

Bought this bronzer after succumbing to the Mac craze. (note: I use this bronzer as a contouring product rather than an overall facial bronzer)
The colour is nice, but surprisingly the powder itself is hard. A little product will not go a long way, I find myself having to dip my brush in a couple of times before applying this blush to get some colour showing up on my face
Maybe this …

Initially bought this over the hype as a result of it being Kim kardashians go to lip gloss.
Pros:
- perfect nude pink lip gloss (the colour is a milky pink but looses some pigment when you apply it on your lips)
- nice packaging (a matte finish)
- can be worn alone or over a neutral pink lipstick (multi use)

Cons:
- not the best staying power
- expensive …

Bought this in search of a good quality everyday lipstick. The colour isn't too daring (a mauve pink) making it suitable for daywear, but if you layer it, the colour is borderline reddish making it suitable for nightwear

After first applying it, texture is really nice (feels like a lip balm) but after a few minutes it feels a little strange, Like your lips are really smooth but …

Bought this blush after a cousin recommended it to me
Perfect for applying blush.
The handle is very lightweight making it easier to perform quick back and forth motions when contouring. ALTHOUGH the brush isn't very dense (its quite soft and fluffy) so sometimes contouring CAN be a little difficult, nonetheless it is still a great brush and contouring is still manageable …

My favorite highlighter! Get compliments whenever i wear it! If youre new to the nars multiple range, i suggest you get this first since it matches all skin colours because its not very pigmented and adds a shine/glow rather than a colour. Although the colour it does add is a mix of benefits high beam and moon beam.
Living in Australia, this product is quite expensive, lucky I was able to …

My go to blush. After I bought this product, my NARS obsession started. Great staying power and highly pigmented so you don't need to add layer upon layer to get the colour to show up. One dip of a brush and you're set
Packaging is lovely
Good for everyday Use
