Skincare - Face - Bioré - detoxify daily scrub

Dec/07/2010

I was pleasantly surprised with this. I prefer my scrubs to be more on the harsh side and really thorough, otherwise my skin feels really clogged up and lumpy. This is definitely more gentle, but it exfoliates beautifully and is gentle enough to use every day. Smells lovely and fresh and doesn't irritate my skin. Ive been using this every day since I've bought it and will definitely …Read more

Blush - Illamasqua - Cream Blusher - Dixie

Dec/07/2010

Gorgeous product! I love cream blushes for the really natural dewy look that they give. This is the best I've tried (others are Stila convertible colours and MAC CCBs). The formula is silky and not the least bit sticky like other cream blushes, blends beautifully. The pigmentation is good, but it is not super pigmented which I actually love because I can build it up. The colour is a warm …Read more

Eyeliner - Illamasqua - Medium Pencil in Vow

Illamasqua is finally in Melbourne! Yay. I bought this for my water line, as white pencils are much too stark. It's a nice off white creamy colour and it is perfect! The only downside is that it wears off after several hours, but I can deal with that.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Warm Soul

This is gorgeous on my PPP skin. I'm cool toned and this helps to warm up my complexion beautifully without looking unnatural. I use it to lightly contour and dust over the high points of the face to warm up my face and give it a healthy glow, and bring it onto the apples of the cheeks over the top of my blush. A bit pricey here in Australia, but totally worth it as I use it almost every …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

5.0

Dec/07/2010

My HG mascara! I actually prefer this to my YSL Faux cils because it's not heavy and doesn't have a cloying smell. It does everything a mascara should - lengthens, thickens, separates, holds curl. Very buildable. One coat gives me a natural, separated look, 2-3 coats make my eyelashes look like falsies that makes everyone ask what mascara I use. The only downside is it can be a little …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - False Lash Effect

Dec/07/2010

I have not tried any new mascaras for over a year since I discovered Covergirl Lashblast. However, after hearing a great review about this from a youtube makeup guru, I decided to give it a try. I was surprised that the brush was EXACTLY the same as Covergirl's Lashblast, even the packaging and the smell of the formula were the same. However, it did not hold my curl well (I never have …Read more

Powder - Stila - Illuminating Powder Foundation

I have bought this powder again and again! I found out about it through Vogue forums on the PPP thread. 10 watts is indeed a perfect match for pale me.

I use it as a finishing powder with a kabuki brush on top of my Clinique Superfit liquid foundation. It provides the most beautiful luminous finish - definitely not glittery (I hate glitter in foundations, bronzers and blushers), but …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick in Revlon Red

2.0

Jan/13/2010

I absolutely LOVE this super bright, cool toned red. The texture is creamy and moisturising, with a slightly shiny finish. But unfortunately I can't wear it because of the disgusting old lipsticky smell and taste =( my friend commented that something smelled like "the toilet", unaware that it was my lipstick. Hopefully one day, Revlon will change the formula to something a bit more …Read more

Sep/27/2009

After reading the reviews it seems like I'm the only one who has a problem with the smell of this product. It smells fine out of a tube, but a few minutes after I apply it onto my face it seems to react with my skin to produce the most strange, unpleasant, sour smell. I can't stand my face smelling this weird so now I've got almost a full tube sitting in my …Read more

Liquid - Lancôme - Color Ideal

Horrible foundation!

Pros:

The colour suited me perfectly (the lightest shade), and I really struggle to find a foundation that is pale enough for me and is yellow based.

Cons:

- Accentuates ANY flakiness (even in spots where you thought you didn't have any). My face looked like it was cracking from drying and flaking an hour after I put this on. I …
