Cleansers - LUSH - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

2.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I was after a gentle, calming facial cleanser to balance skin & gently remove make-up & build up.

A staff member recommended Fresh Farmacy, which is meant to be the mildest cleanser in solid form at Lush. She sampled it on my arm which felt pretty okay.

However at home I used it once on my face, and straight after rinsing this off my face felt so stripped, dry and …

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

I got the mini size of this. It has nice packaging, good formula, however the hourglass shaped brush is so large, impractical & hard to use! It was really tricky and time consuming to reach into the inner corners and coat the lashes without making a mess. Typical mascara results for me at the end of it. After a week I ended up chucking this out & went back to my Rimmel extra super lash …Read more

I really like this product!

After shampooing and conditioning I apply this to the mid-length and ends of my hair, making it super sleek, silicony and easy to comb. It has an amazing scent, kind of like sweet candy, pretty much identical to Bedhead’s “After Party” serum, which I equally love. These two together work a dream & make my hair so smooth, shiny and easy to manage, & …

Got this in True Ivory as I’m very pale (NC15). New Zealand has a different shade range to other countries, so this may differ depending on where you live.

Packaging is a nice classy glass bottle with a white lid, it has a pump too, which is great. (I recall using this product years back before the packaging and formula was changed, I remember I really liked it so thought it was time …

I got the colour ‘Humble Pie’ ..it’s a true Barbie Hot Pink!

The packaging is beautiful, durable, and feels very expensive. Rose gold with little stars on the packaging and the lipstick itself. It has the shade name on the bottom of the tube, so you can see what colour it is when you store it upright.

The formula is very good quality. Very opaque, so only one light coat needed …

I got this in Blondie, & love it!

The formula is so smooth and creamy, and easily apples to the brush and brows in seconds. There’s a decent amount of hair on my brows, but they still need filling in, especially at the heads where’s there’s hardly any hair, and definition in the tail. This does the job well.

It makes the brows look defined, yet really soft and natural at …

Love the smell of this perfume, because of this I’ve Been using it for years. It’s a unique green, fruity, florally, citrusy, ‘cut grass’ scent. Smells like spring! Classy & Feminine.

I love the flower bottle so much, it’s so pretty I have it as an ornament on my dresser.

Downside is the longevity of the scent. I apply this on moisturised skin in the morning and by midday …

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I have oily eyelids, and deep set, watery eyes, so it’s hard to find a good liquid eyeliner. Esp one that doesn’t smudge & transfer onto eyelids. This black eyeliner does neither, and really stays put ! I don’t touch up during the day but could easily in a few seconds if I wish.

This is very similar to the Stila Liquid Eyeliner which is equally as good.

I love the packaging …

Foundations - ColourPop - No Filter Foundation

Sep/15/2018

This foundation isn’t bad, esp for the price. (12USD). You do get 25mls, which is slightly less than the standard 30ml for foundations.

Packaging nice and simple, a nice glass bottle with a pump. Would be nicer with a lid. It has a locking mechanism.

The foundation is very opaque, very matte, it is hard to blend. It looks nice once finished, but has a tendency to look quite …

I used this years ago, and recently thought I’d give it another go.

Pros: Good price, readily accessible, sleek packaging, many benefits in one product, feels amazing on skin, skin looks naturally flawless.

Cons: Rubbish shade range, even light shade too dark for porcelain skin, strong harsh smell, very runny messy formula.

I got the Light shade. Unfortunately it …
