Fragrances - Miller Harris - L-Air de Rien

Mar/02/2017

Okay, this is a review years in the making.

I originally heard of this in relation to Jane Birkin, and was always intrigued by how she described this perfume - brother's hair, old books, all that. But circumstance has always prevented me from my buying it - it's expensive, and I've had other perfumes to have love affairs with.

The histrionic reviews also got …

Mascara - RIMMEL - Lash Accelerator Mascara

Aug/28/2016

I bought this on clearance at Chemist Warehouse for $1.

I've had it unused in my makeup bag for so long, but only started using it when becoming fed up with my Estee Lauder Double Wear (great, but dull unless you add more coats)

I'm not a huge fan of Rimmel products. I used their BB cream in a younger, cheaper life, and it was drying. Their eye definer smudges so …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Fire & Ice

Jul/05/2016

I have been obsessed with this lipstick for years before buying it. I mean, who isn't? It's classic, vintage Revlon, and I think a lot of girls are attracted to the idea of wearing something with so much history.

I have wanted this lipstick before I even started wearing reds - years ago. But I never got around to buying it: it was expensive in AUD, I was sure it would look …

Tinted Moisturizer - Glossier - Perfecting Skin Tint

Feb/10/2016

I don't wear heavy makeup and foundation unless it's a special occasion, so I'm particular about my tinted moisturisers and BB creams.

For years, I used a range of tinted moisturisers and creams by Natio, an Australian brand that is quite good and surprisingly cheap. My very first tube of anything face-wise was Clinique's Almost Makeup. I've tried to avoid …

Shampoo - Soap & Glory - Glad Hair Day

4.0

Oct/19/2015

I've been using this shampoo for the last few months.

NOTE: Below is my earlier review. I stopped using this after about three or so bottles and passed mine on. It is just too drying for the scalp. It promises no buildup but I could definitely feel it. I tried an unscented shampoo by Akin as well, but it was similarly drying. The only SLS-free shampoo I can rely on is by Nashi …

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

Jul/16/2015

After using this once, I knew it would be my HG mascara.

I feel like I've used all the mascara types out there, and fall for the marketing hype more often than not.

But this mascara is simple, effective and gives you value for money.

I'm not really a fan of volume, and don't curl my eyelashes anymore due to sensitivity. I've always been on …

Gels/ Soaps - Dr. Bronner's - Hemp Peppermint Castille Soap

3.0

Jun/06/2015

I've only recently started using this but I'm a fan.

My shower ritual for about a year now has been lathering a Salux cloth with black soap (dudu-osun), scrubbing, then afterwards using a body wash. Haven't really invested much in shower gels so they've usually been off the shelf of a supermarket, those Dove so-and-sos and Lux whatevers which always promise the …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Naturals - Purifying Facial Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2015

This is the best of the Naturals range, I use it as a daily cleanser.

It's a soap, more or less. The packaging is easy to use, the pump dispenses a good amount of liquid. Foams up, does leave skin a bit tight/dry feeling so I always tone and moisturise after.

it's an improvement on some of the cleansers I've used, isn't too harsh and my face has been …

Scrubs - Neutrogena - Naturals Daily Facial Scrub

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2015

This exfoliating scrub is unremarkable, gives your face a gritty feeling when you're using it and offers no great result or feeling after use.

Neutrogena must be joking, using a scrub daily is an open invitation to blemishes and facial problems.

Don't be fooled by the Naturals packaging, you're getting a faceful of chemicals and nothing different to any other …

Eyeliner - Almay - Liquid Eyeliner

HG HG HG!

I am still new to liquid liner (used pencil for years, then felt tip pens, now this) and it's the best eyeliner I have used. I'm still a little confused by the brush & pot method but it gives a dark, buildable line that lasts.

Possible cons:

- When painting my upper lid and giving it time to dry, it can transfer to the lower …
