Blush - Illamasqua - Cream Blusher In Zygomatic

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2012

Zygomatic is a newly released cream blush colour. The swatches on illamasqua website are quite accurate. I would describe the colour as a dusty pink with slight plummy brown undertone. What I love especially about this blush is the finish, it goes on smoothly and gives a dewy, subtle finish. No garish shimmer particles, just a soft, glowing colour that can easily be built up.

Masks - NARS Cosmetics - Mud Mask

Jun/03/2010

I first had a sample of this mask about 4 years ago and quite liked it but was put off from the price of it, though it stayed in the back of my mind.

Through the years of being quite disappointed with skin care purchases and breaking out easily, I decided to go ahead and purchase a full size of this and i'm glad I did. It was what I remembered, making my skin brighter, smoother …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Ophelia

5.0

May/16/2010

Ophelia is a gorgeous colour, on my lightly pigmented lips it darkens them a bit to a medium pink that instantly brightens my complexion, that was what I noticed first, that my face looked instantly brighter and more alive with this on. It's not so much 'strawberry' on me, more of a muted pinky colour with a 'pop' to it, if that makes any sense. I definitely recommend and …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - CHANEL - Le Blanc de Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base

Nov/27/2009

I have dry/sensitive/acne prone skin and this provides my skin with a subtle luminous glow that I have been searching for. Finally something that makes skin glow without any obvious shimmer.

I like using it alone as well as under foundation but the best way so far is to mix it in with my foundation. It feels very lightweight and creates a very subtle but noticeable …

Nov/19/2009

I tried this a few times at the YSL counter before deciding to shell out the $78 AUD for this foundation and i'm glad I did. This is a really nice foundation that doesn't break me out.

I have slightly dry/combination sensitive acne prone skin.

This feels really light on the skin, applies very easily, with fingers or a brush, I found it easy to blend. I usually …

I really like this product. Used on wet hair and let air dry it made my usually slightly frizzy, dry hair look smooth, felt very soft and had a slight shine. It has a pleasant, non offensive smell. Overall am impressed and will continue using as a leave in conditioner.

Lip Treatments - RoC - Enydrial Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2009

At first I loved this product, it was the best lip balm I had used, it healed my chapped lips quickly and was very moisturizing. I had suspected it made me break out on my lipline though and stopped using it. A month or so later I was sick of my lips being so chapped and dry so went back to the RoC in hopes that maybe it was something else that broke me out but a few days of using it and there it …Read more

This balm has a lovely mint scent and feels cooling to my lips. It sinks in very fast and leaves lips feeling hydrated and smooth. What more could you want from a lip treatment? Oh, and it has SPF and Jack Black is 'animal friendly'. HG!

Cleansers - Jan Marini Skin Research - Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/08/2008

I love Jan Marini products, i've only fairly recently discovered them though I started with this product in my search for something to help with my acne that had been appearing way too often of late. My skin is sensitive, dry and acne prone and since using this cleanser the acne has been minimal and my skin looks much clearer. It feels creamy and washes off easily.

The only bad …
