Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Heliocare 360 Gel Oil-Free Dry Touch Face SPF 50

I find this sunscreen really good. I haven't had any issues with it making me look orange/yellow as another reviewer has (and I have very light skin). It dries quickly to a true matte finish and I feel that it slightly approves the appearance of my skin and has a somewhat calming effect on redness. I don't find it difficult to apply at all. I have combination, acne prone skin and it …Read more

Foundations - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face & Body SPF 15

4.0

Jul/14/2016

This absolutely would be my holy grail foundation IF they had a colour that matched. I have relatively pale skin and even the lightest colour in the range is too dark for me (and also looks too yellow/orange). Which is not surprising given there are only 6 shades in the range - ridiculous! Now, this feels and applies like an absolute dream and despite being MAXIMUM coverage, it doesn't feel …Read more

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2016

Putting my review here since Paula's Choice Australia is refusing to post it on their website. I used this product for YEARS and loved it. However, they have recently changed the formula and it now smells disgusting and the texture is nowhere near as nice or as moisturising as it used to be. I won't be using this anymore as I'm not willing to pay a high price for something that …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara

Terrible. While it was easy to apply and made my lashes look great, it starts flaking off almost immediately. Hours later I had black rings under my eyes. So glad I had this in a sample size from a Sephora Lash Stash and didn't actually buy a full-size one. A ridiculously overpriced, crap mascara.

Blush - LORAC - Powder blush in Soul

This is a very nice blush and has become my go-to blush for daily wear/work. When I first got it (in a pallette/kit), I thought it looked like a bit of a "nothing" colour. But after wearing it a few times I changed my mind. It's great for days where you don't want to make too much of a statement (like at work) but still want a nice glow. Lovely muted dusky pink colour with a …Read more

Bronzers - wet n wild - Color Icon Bronzer - Reserve Your Cabana

Mar/19/2013

In no way can this be called a bronzer. When I apply it to my extremely pale skin, it doesn't even show up. I honestly think it becomes translucent once taken out of the pan. It's not shimmery enough to be a highlighter, so I don't know what the hell I'm going to do with it. Probably end up using it to set my liquid foundation when I run out of translucent powder, which is not …Read more

Mascara - Paula's Choice - Illicit Lash Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2013

Paula's Choice Australia sent me this mascara for free with one of my skincare orders. I'm in two minds about it. On one hand, I like the brush, which is rubber with very tiny bristles. The pointed end is easy to get into the corners to coat all the smaller lashes. On the other hand, the formula is extremely wet and will soak my eyelashes and stick them together if I don't wipe …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Tea Rose

Finally, I have found a NYX Mega Shine gloss that I am 100% happy with! This gives a beautiful sheer wash of gorgeous pink colour with no hint of glitter or sparkles. Feels instantly moisturising as well and makes my lips look amazing. Love it!

Mascara - Unlisted Brand - DB Designer Brands - Absolute Lash Max Volume Mascara (Tubing + Fibres)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2013

This product really does not live up to its name as it provides almost no volume at all. It is a tubing mascara with fibres, so it gives good length but that's about it. It's also really hard to get a decent amount on the brush, it's almost like the tube comes with hardly any product on it, either that or the formula is too dry. It was my understanding that tubing mascaras were …Read more

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Stick Blush (All Colors) [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2013

I have this in Orchid (peach with gold sparkles) and while I love the colour, this stick format is just nowhere near as good as NYX's Rouge Cream blush. It is more difficult to apply/blend and seems to start wearing off pretty quickly, whereas the Rouge Cream blush lasts AGES. This also doesn't have a very nice finish, and I feel that to blend it out enough so it looks …Read more
