I tried to be open minded and give it several chances but enough is enough. To begin with, here in Australia this costs approximately $70-$80. For that I had pretty high expectations for this product. It's supposed to give a light yet even coverage that doesn't feel weighty or intense on the face will still smoothing over any imperfections. It sounded okay.

HOWEVER.

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I bought this for the premise of an ultra blendable foundation that would match my super pale skintone, and bought N1. It's a super drying formula, and half a bottle of primer is necessary to stop it accentuating fine lines. It's also not the blending dream it claims to be. Blending is a pain and it's streaky and oxidizes very orangey. However, I like the matte coverage and the …Read more

This looks terrifying in the pan! It's tomato red! I only really bought it because I love the Disney theme and the packaging is so darn cute, but it turns out it's actually a really nice product. Surprisingly, it's a subtle pop of colour that's really warm and fresh. As always with MAC blushes, it's super smooth and velvety, and I love how very matte it is.

I bought this because of the stellar reviews it got, and while it's pretty good, it's not amazing. I don't like the smell of the original balm, and it leaves my lips feeling waxy and kind of deadened. Which I guess is a good thing if your lips are sore and dry from the winter air, but it's only just gone summer here in Australia and my lips are still feeling moisturized and …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Mascara

Love this! It has a soft application true to its name that leaves a natural fluffy full look, and both volumizes and lengthens beautifully. It also holds my curl for hours, which is a big plus for my typical Japanese eyes as my lashes tend to droop the second I lash on (har har) mascara. Maybelline is so dirt cheap, and their mascaras are my absolute favourite. I've used Lancome and Dior and …Read more

I've never tried the original Lolita Lempicka fragrance, but I do have L and it's the most delicious and wonderful perfume of my young life! XD
Sadly I can't say the same for this fragrance. It just doesn't sit right on me. It's a very dark, moody, intense fragrance, full of liquorice, and it was sickeningly sweet on me, like a poison. The only redeeming quality is …

I love this concealer. It has a creamy, smooth texture without being thick and looking cakey. The coverage is super opaque and covers blemishes beautifully for hours. The packaging is so beautiful, and I love the wind-up lipstick style of it. Considering that it's a YSL product, it is also very reasonably priced. Am on my third tube; and will be buying my fourth as soon as this runs out.

I wasn't a fan. I'd heard so many rave reviews about it, but to be totally honest I found it hugely disappointing. It was gloopy and tar-like, and I found that it was messy and tricky to apply. My eyelashes looked dramatic, but they were clumpy and I found that once it dried, it flaked onto my cheeks. I haven't tried it with mascara primer yet, so maybe that's the key. So far …Read more
