Blush - COVERGIRL - Classic Color in Iced Plum

I love love love this colour; the first blush I've ever owned. Swatching it on my hand I get this beautiful iridescent gold plum shade, this however does not translate on to the skin without lots of building up (clown level) which is unfortunate because I really do like it. Other than that, pigmentation is quite good.

I gave it 3 stars because the longevity is non existent, it …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - The Colossal Volum Express Mascara

Aug/16/2015

I've recently switched (temporarily lol) from Great Lash Big, to this because I wanted to try out a volumising mascara.
I really do like it! I already have long lashes and I needed some volume, this gives me both additional length and volume- though leaves a bit to be desired in the volume department.
When its still new you need to MAKE SURE you get nearly all of the product off …

I genuinely believe these are repackaged MAC lipsticks. Same vanilla scent, perfect consistency, but I reckon these last longer.
In NZ I can buy almost 10 Jordana mattes for the price of one MAC lippy- nuff said

I LOVE THIS CONCEALER!!!! Here in NZ i can pick it up from between $5-$15 depending on where I go.
I heard good things and picked up a tube from a makeup sale. They only had two shades - one was far to light and pink for me so I didn't get that one, so I opted for Warm Honey which appeared quite a bit darker than what I would usually use for a concealer.
I got home and tried the …

This is my review of the naturals palette.
After tossing up between a number of different higher end palettes, I decided on this one as I was not ready to invest a large sum of money into eye-shadow (being a student lol).
Overall this is an average product that gives you a flavour of using a palette and blending colours, though if you are not a beginner do not get this product as it …

Apr/13/2015

The consistency is horrible, it is not build able to say the least and just looks patchy and chalky. It does not blend into the skin, just sort of sits there.
I bought it at a makeup sale and tried to make it work to no avail.

UPDATE!!!: I have found a way to make this product work- i use it almost daily on the skin under and above my eyebrows as this skin tends to be slightly …

LOVE THIS! For the longest time I didn't not wear any blush at all because I couldn't find anything to suit my skin tone.
This blush goes on beautifully and it looks very natural and sexy, super pigmented so a little goes a very long way. (which is very hard to find when you have brown skin)
This lasts all day and doesn't rub off/fade!

I recommend to any …

This concealer is great for anyone looking for light coverage or even just for highlighting.
I have terrible dark circles so I was recommended this by the MAC MUA, I think she suggested this product because I was looking for an everyday concealer, however it does VERY LITTLE to cover my dark blue/purple under eye circles. I usually have to put prep and prime, concealer, foundation then …
