This is the best mineral powder ever. It looks so natural on my skin and it stays on all day. It is expensive if you buy it in stores, but buying it through cheaper internet sites makes it reasonably priced.
It can be used also as a concealer.

I really wanted to like this mascara because I like mineral make up. And both the Smooth Mineral Pressed Powder and the Smooth Mineral Lipstick have been fantastic. But this product wasn't for me. I don't get the brush - it wasn't effective and it left clumps of mascara on my lashes as I was putting it on. I got smudges under my eyes after about 2 hours of putting it on and by the …Read more

I am loving this mascara. I get great coverage with smooth application and no clumps. The brush makes for easy application. I get no smudges or smears with it and flaking is a thing of the past. It's a great price - as long as I buy it when it's on special - and then I buy 2.

This is my favourite under eye concealer. I use moonlight. I have very pale skin. I have tried their icon sealer and their under eye primer and they weren't that effective. But this is fantastic. It reduces the appearance of my under eye bags and my dark circles and it makes my eyes look brighter. It's a bargain if it is on sale (and it is on sale quite regularly). I think it is as good …Read more

I am loving this. I have always been concerned about using 'natural' products and ones that don;t test on animals. My hairdresser recommended this....and he is usually right about what is good!
It doesn't have an intrusive smell.
It only requires a tiny amount to wash my hair - which is about shoulder length. I just put a squeeze the size of a 5 cent (Australian) on my …

This used to be my favourite mascara. I used it for 6 years and was perfectly happy. However, when I bought my third to last one, after about a week it was dry and clumpy coming out of the tube. I thought that I must have just been sent some old stock - and I was such a faithful user that I ordered another. Same thing happened! Once more I bought another and after a month it was clumpy. I rang …Read more

I bought this lipstick in Rosy Brown. It's a gentle warm brownish red shade on my lips. It's lovely and smooth. It's quite pale on first application - but a second application darkens it and strengthens the colour. It is a great price - because I only ever buy it when it is on sale in the Avon catalogue. I am so impressed with it that I am going to try other colours in the range.

I really love this. I wear Warm Sienna and it is a perfect match for my skin tone. An easy application and a great finished look, Very natural. But ditch the sponge in favour of a good brush.
It feels light on my skin and covers my roseacea perfectly but doesn't look like I am "covering" my roseacea.
It is expensive though and for a while i kept justifying it too myself …

I was really pleased with this. I use Vanilla and I get good, natural looking results that stay on most of the day. I do need to touch it up if I am going out after work. The fact that there are only four shades means that the Vanilla isn't as perfect a colour as the Jane Iredale that I also use, but it isn't as expensive either.
It comes with a sponge but I felt that it is too …

This shampoo was recommended to me by my hairdresser. It is gentle and most of the time I just wash and repeat and don't bother with the conditioner. It makes my hair manageable and super shiny.
It also does what it says it does. It helps keep my colour looking good, not washed out until the next colour (about 8 weeks)

I have to use some mousse product to style my hair while …
