Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer

Jan/10/2019

After giving this a go for a week it is officially being thrown out. Here are my reasons why:

Pros:
- Does (kind of) stop shine

Cons:
- Initial application is thick and feels like applying glue to your face. Not nice!
- during application it is like it is stretching your skin as it starts to set straight away. Skin is delicate, so makeup application should be …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%

I've been using this for a month now, 2x a week at night.

This has been kind of amazing. I have quite dry skin that flakes in patches and appeared uneven.

My skin is now pretty happy! Skin is soft, hydrated and no longer dull. I did experience some additional flaking in my first 2 weeks, however nothing a cleanser/light exfoliation couldn't get rid of. I switched …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary "Buffet"

Aug/29/2017

I've been using Buffet for a month now and have noticed an amazing difference in my skin. I usually get dry patches on my nose and around my lips, however using this those dry patches have vanished!

The results speak for themselves on your first use - skin will feel plump and smooth, and after this past month it's visibly noticeable just how smooth my skin is.

It …

I really love this primer.

Long wearing, makes makeup look fab and works as a great base for other products too (I love my colour correcting primers, so use this as a base for them since it does everything they don't!)

I found the best results were achieved alongside lots of face prep as it really is just a primer. So use toner etc to minimise pores if that's your …

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Water Blend Face & Body Foundation

3.0

Feb/20/2017

I'm really really really torn about this product. I want to love it, but I just can't!

I LOVED the Face & Body range, but was excited when they released Water Blend as it's supposed to solve a couple of the issues for F&B. They've fixed the transferring problem, so this one is definitely a lot longer wearing, better coverage and finally a colour that matches …

Feb/20/2017

This foundation was a really nice surprise after being a committed Face & Body addict.

My first use was on my wedding day (30oC - Hot Aussie Spring/Summer Day!) and it didn't only look amazing in photos, it lasted all day without that 'IM WEARING MAKEUP THAT IS SLIDING OFF MY FACE' look!

Medium coverage and doesn't feel cakey - covers most of my …

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

Jan/20/2014

This is my go to Foundation for everyday wear. I have very pale skin and #13 is a perfect match. The high SPF and it's fantastic coverage are my two favourite things about this BB Cream. It's hard to find a brand that matches or out does these aspects. I apply using my fingers or a stipple brush for best results.

Pros:
- Medium buildable coverage - hides freckles, any …

Jan/20/2014

I cannot begin to explain how much I love this product. It's probably the most amazing leave in conditioner that I have ever used, not only because it smells amazing, but also the long term effects on my hair. Having dry, regularly dyed hair split ends and frizz is inevitable. What I love most about this product is how it not only reverses this issue, but I can also use as much as I …Read more

Jan/06/2014

I love this product. It's in my top 2!

So light weight and moisturising. Leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft, and is nice and delicate around the eye area. It's also great under makeup, doesn't 'ball' up, slide or look oily. Instead it soaks in fast leaving the perfect base for foundation. There's also no noticeable fragrance which is a …

Nov/07/2013

FINALLY!

I've been on the hunt for a good make-up for quite some time now! I have pale, dryish skin with freckles, and find that most make-up is either too yellow/pink, oxidises or accentuates any dry patches as the day goes on.
Leading up to my engagement party I decided I needed something without SPF for photographs.

I was quite sceptical about this make-up as I …
