    Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner

    Just no. Horrid.

    I absolutely positively HATE this liner, it is dreadful. It claims to have a flexible pen tip but I beg to differ, the tip is so stiff and the colour is dry, it tugs on my eyelids and I've got big eyes too, the tip is far too wide to create precise lines, smudges like theres no tomorrow but is still a pain to take off, it also ruins my eyeshadow. Do not purchase, under any circumstance.

  • Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick
    10.0

    Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick

    Can't go wrong, especially if you love brights!

    In Australia many products are notoriously difficult to find, and a long time ago I had seen the beautiful Moon Drops shade of "Persian Melon" (even the name sounds exotic!) on the internet and was hankering out for it like anything, it's a stunning, vibrant, neutral hot pink that looks incredible for upcoming summer. I think that some people may have qualms with the scent but I actually love it! I think it gives that true, authentic, lipstick smell! These have been around for years the shade selection is a rare one like no other, the colours are dramatic, leave your lips super moisturised, last for a long time and with correct preparation won't feather, beautiful! Keep an eye out for them, they're a real treasure!

    Playboy Fragrances Play It Sexy

    So girly and sensual!

    I personally love sweet candy fragrances, and this really hits the spot! It's got that sexy vanilla note and lollipop scent and I'm not sure how to describe it entirely but it's so good. My boyfriend is obsessed with it! I think it's because it reminds him of me though :) I also love the price, affordable perfumes yay!

  • Essie Nail Polish
    7.0

    Essie Nail Polish

    What's the hype?

    Maybe it's just in Australia, but for one thing these nail polishes are EXPENSIVE over here and have a thin, bothersome formula! I have to pay at least $20 for a bottle of Essie and I know in the US they cost around $7, I find I need at least 4 coats to achieve somewhat opacity and I've got three colours. Mind you; "Fiji" is one of my favourite shades but only because I have the patience so I can have that stunning shade, but again it is very thin, as is "Van'd'Go" and "Adore-a-Ball". They shouldn't get such the attention they do, OPI all the way!

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Fast Dry Nail Color
    9.0

    Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Fast Dry Nail Color

    Love! Finally no chips or smears!

    I adore this nail polish and most of Sally Hansens formulas (especially the Salon Perfect Manicure polishes), especially the top coat! It ensures that I can set my coats nice and quickly and have them looking perfect, knowing I don't have to worry nearly as much as I used to about smearing, smudging or chipping. I hate having chipped or smudged nail polish, so I want it to last long as possible I get so sick of re-doing it all the time, so these are perfect for me. Near the end of the bottle the coloured ones (I have the bright yellow "Lightening" shade) get a bit thick and thicken on the brush a bit, but you can thin it out with nail polish remover and it's ready to go.

  • Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara

    I got this mascara in the miniature size for the 4th Book of Shadows, and since I'm running out of the last mascara I'm using and don't wanna pay out just yet for another (mascara is SO expensive over here!) so I decided to give this a whirl. I really like this mascara for my bottom eyelashes as the brush has a nice curve to it and the rubber bristles aren't as messy as a nylon wand. It's not the most impressive formula I've ever used for my top eyelashes -and I've got plenty of lashes!- but I do like it, I like the rich blackness, it does give my lashes a nice curl without an eyelash curler (don't like them!) and gives good length and volume. There's better out there and I personally prefer nylon bristles that catch into the root of the lash better with a dryer formula, don't write this one off!

  • Lush Lip Scrub

    Lush Lip Scrub

    Can't get enough of Bubblegum!

    My boyfriend got this for me as part of a LUSH gift set for my birthday one year and it's sooooo delicious! It's a nice feeling knowing that the formula is just a few simple ingredients and makes you feel as if you could almost make it yourself! I always feel like i need to exfoliate my lips because they flake and lip products always seem to pill on me!

  • MAC Cleanse Off Oil
    3.0

    MAC Cleanse Off Oil

    Give it up! Better off using Olive Oil

    Cannot recommend MAC Cleanse Off Oil (no matter how much I adore MAC) because it's full of super irritating fragrance oils, and this isn't just about sensitive skin, but that applies to ALL skin types; irritation is bad and pro-ages! It's got bitter orange and lavender oils, all of which contribute to irritation of the skin, therefore damaging collagen, cell reproduction, and causing dreaded wrinkles. Olive Oil has the same makeup removing effects without the irritation of fragrance oils.

  • Alfaparf Semi di lino Diamante Illuminating Mask
    5.0

    Alfaparf Semi di lino Diamante Illuminating Mask

    Does nothing for me & Can't stand the smell!

    Much like the accompanying shampoo this product has a very unpleasant scent, like a bad mens cologne mixed with extra strong chemicals! The treatment has shimmery particles running throughout that are meant to add shine and illumination to your hair but I found it didn't do much for me in terms of shine or conditioning, better luck next time Alfaparf!

  • Alfaparf Semi di lino Diamante Illuminating Shampoo

    I used this product a couple of years ago and never really say anything lovely happen with my hair so I finished it up and forgot about it. Then I was at my boyfriends house the other day and smelt something odd, but familiar in their shower, his sister had started using this shampoo! It's got a very strong and unpleasant, almost metallic chemical smell, it's very overpowering and really puts me off. Doesn't do anything great to add shine to the hair, but maybe for someone with healthy hair it would work better.
