REVIEW: Rimmel GlamEyes eyeshadows in 150- Pink Crush and 140- Precious Rose

Price: $10 each. 

I’ve never really worn pinks on my eyes, but on the back, it says it complements green eyes, which I have so I decided to give these babies a go, and I actually really like them! 

The pink isn’t the sort of pink that makes you look tired, or like you are sick or have an eye infection. (This is why I usually stayed away from the pink and red tones) but these give a really nice girly-beauty. It makes your eyes look like they’re roses, basically. I wore them for my entire 7 hour shift and the colour has stayed put, they don’t seem to crease at all (possibly because I have an eye primer on too, that always helps.) 

The two colours work really well together, they’re super pigmented and at an awesome price like this I couldn’t say no. I’ll definitely be trying more of the Rimmel single eyeshadows.

REVIEW: Edward Beale Moroccan Gloss Pure Argan Oil

Price: $12-$15

This comes in the form of a spray. I use it when I get out of the shower, and after I’ve used a detangler. 

This makes my hair SO unbelievably soft. It’s truly never felt better. It’s very lightweight, I noticed that the MoroccanOil brand weighed my hair down a lot, and made it look quite greasy.

Because this is in the form of a spray, it dispenses more evenly into my hair. I only spray around 2-3 sprays in my hair, (two on my ends, one from about 40cm away to the crown of my head). It is more ‘liquidy’ than your typical hair oil, but I suppose it needs to be, as it’s in a spray bottle. 

It doesn’t have a scent (which I don’t mind, I’d rather no scent than a scent I don’t like) and I give the packaging A+. 

It makes my hair soft, silky, shiny, smooth and (apparently according to the bottle!) protects your hair. I love it, this will most likely be in my holy grail giveaway!

REVIEW- Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation and pressed powder. 

Shades: mousse: 100 Ivory
              Powder: 001 Transparent

Price: $10-$20. 

When it comes to oil, I’m greasier than the fries-bucket at McDonalds, so I’m all about the matte foundations. I like this foundation and I like the powder too, but not… Together? 

It seems ridiculous, they’re from the same line of products and all, they should be made for each other, or so I thought. 

I still haven’t worked the foundation out. I don’t know wether it has good coverage or not because I think I’ve been using too much of it. It doesn’t blend fantastically well, I used a patting motion with a sponge to make it blend in, but upon applying the powder, it almost seemed to… Unblend what I had just blended. 

The other thing I don’t really like is that it very obviously sits on top of my skin, not that id want it seeping into my pores but it’s literally just THERE, you can see it sitting like a layer on top of my skin. It looks to die for from a far, but don’t get too close. 

I’ve used it for a few days now, some days have worked better than others. If I can work out the correct application, I’ll do an updated review, I could definitely have messed this up. I don’t know yet. 

I’ve used the powder over many foundations, it’s long lasting and definitely keeps my face shine free for about 5 hours, then I just pat some more on. 

I give the foundation alone a 6/10
I give the powder alone an 8/10

What are my favourite mascaras? 

We are all looking for the perfect mascara, one that adds length, volume, holds a curl, doesn’t flake and doesn’t clump. Does it exist? 

(From left to right) 

Maybelline XXL PRO extensions:
This one is a duo mascara, there is the white primer and the black mascara. You can use the black mascara on its own, but paired with the white primer, you’ll have longer, thicker and fuller looking lashes. It holds a curl, it doesn’t flake or run. The formula seems to get better and better the longer you use it for. It doesn’t ever seem to run out, but when its a little dryer, it works even better! 

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash:
Oh. My. Lord. So this is what I’m wearing in the top picture. I have a problem with little flat lashes that don’t have any natural curl, they stick straight down and look gloomy and sloppy. I didn’t even curl my lashes! I just applied 3 easy coats of this puppy. It’s definitely one of my number ones. 

Maybelline lash STILETTO waterproof:
This is for those of you with short, stumpy lashes. It adds a whole lot of length, not so great in the volume department, though. For the best effect, curl your lashes before using. It will hold a curl perfectly. If you need volume as well as length, apply a quick coat of a volumising mascara afterwards. 

Loreal Volume Million Lashes:
The tube is looking a little worse for wear, but you can just see how much I loved this. I need to repurchase this immediately, volume million sounds about right, my lashes have never been so full. Watch out for water and sweat though, one touch of water and it’ll be all over your face. 

Love Alpha Transplanting Gel:
So this came in a set, but I’ve lost the other part to it. It came in a cute sunglasses case with the transplanting gel and those little fibres that you apply afterwards, literally adding tiny little hairs onto the ends of your lashes. The transplanting gel is literally just a mascara, but it works great in the set. It does look like you’re wearing false lashes, without the ‘false’ part because you can’t even tell! 

Benefit THEY’RE REAL! :
I only had the travel size of this baby, and I lost it after a week of having it. I cried legitimate tears of sorrow. This mascara… It says on the packaging that it’s a ‘beyond’ mascara, and while I don’t know what that means that’s also the perfect way to describe it. It gives fuller, thicker, longer lashes, if holds a curl, it doesn’t clump but it isn’t a super wet formula. If you’re looking for the ‘perfect mascara’ that we talked about earlier, I’d be inclined to say that this is it!

REVIEW: Burt’s Bees More Moisture Conditioner with Baobab. 

Price: $15-$20 

When I bought this item, it ticked all the right boxes. Sulfate, paraben, phthalate and petrochemical free, with nourishing avocado oil? Score! 

Unfortunately not, though. It dried out my hair, I couldn’t brush my hair without looking down and seeing 1-2inch long pieces of hair snapped off around my feet. I tried it for about a week, but I got more anxious about it as the week went on. ‘What if it does irreparable damage to my hair!?’ Well guess what? It did. I had to get my hair cut and buy deep conditioning treatments to make up for this. 

I looked for the culprit in the ingredients and I can only bring it down to this: in the first 5 ingredients listed, three of them are different types of alcohol (which can dry out your hair!) alcohol is usually found in hair products, but it’s not usually the main ingredients. 

It smells nice, but very sickly sweet. 

Hate it as a conditioner, but it works wonders as a shave cream.

REVIEW: Maybelline Dream Pure 8-in-1 BB Cream for Oily Skin. 

Shade: Light. 

RRP: $15, purchased on sale for $10. 

Left: No makeup. 
Middle: BB cream only. 

I’ve never actually put a BB cream on my face before, only the back of my hand, they’ve ways felt so smooth and lightweight, blending seamlessly into the skin. 

I am aware that this BB cream isn’t supposed to give the best coverage in the world (it isn’t a foundation) but I imagine a bit of concealer and powder would do the trick nicely. It did help with the redness across my cheeks and the dark circles under my eyes. 

I wouldn’t say that I ‘can’t feel it’ on my face. It does feel like I’m wearing a light foundation. I love the fact that it’s SPF 15 (I would prefer SPF 30 or more, but 15 is still good!) it blends into the skin easily and really evened out the tone and colour of my face. 

I do believe that there could be better BB creams out there, and I’m willing to try and test until I find it. 

I give this product a 7/10.

REVIEW: Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter. 

Shades: 053 Sorbet (Left) & 063 Wild Watermelon (Right). 

RRP: $10-$15

I’ve been hearing about these in the Beauty Community for months, so when I stopped past my local grocery store, I picked these two puppies up. 

The colour is great, it is sheer, but you can build it into quite an opaque colour. These two shades are quite similar though, I had to apply 3 thick layers of 063 in order for it to look redder than 053. They’re creamy, and they have awesome moisturising goodness in them, they’re practically a lazy girls lipstick. They require about as much reapplying as most lip products. 

Over all, I love these. They come in loads of different shades AND they are relatively inexpensive, definitely recommend!
