The Body Shop Mango body butter: This stuff is really wonderful, especially after a hot shower. It's great for dry skin and smells uber summery and tropical. It's one of my bedside table essentials!

Covergirl Trublend foundation: I bought this about a week ago and think it scores about 3.5/5. It's not an amazing product but does a pretty good job for the money you pay for it (this one was $12). I really wouldn't recommend it for oily skin though as it doesn't support that at all. I think it would be perfect on dry/normal skin with minimal blemishes. The coverage is quite sheer and feels quite fresh to wear. It blends beautifully. 

Lush Snow Fairy Shower gel: This was my first Lush product and was gifted to me by the amazing Sophie from Nana Wintour. She sent me the most ah-mazing package last week and I'm completely smitten with this shower gel. It smells like cotton candy and even has a subtle glimmer to it. A real treat!

Bourjois Neutral eyeshadow: This is one of my favourite products of all time. The amazing quality and versatility of this product (not to mention the packaging) has made this an essential. It's the perfect everyday eyeshadow and instantly brightens things up :) 

Mode glitter nail polishes: These costed me less than five dollars for the both of them! The lasting power of these are what instantly made them a winner. They're super affordable too! (I couldn't find a link to buy them directly online, but Australian chemists should stock them). 

Mode eyeliner: I purchased these for about $1.50 for so my hopes weren't too high. The good thing about this product is that it washes off easily and doesn't leave me looking like I've been punched in the face, haha. The applicator isn't the best for beginners (*ahem* me!) but overall it's a great eyeliner if your money is tight and you're relatively familiar with applying liquid eyeliner. 

Revlon Colorstay eyeliner and CustomEyes mascara: I was overall disappointed with these products.
The mascara gives little to no volume to my barely there lashes, then clumps them all together like a black triangle (yuck!). The eyeliner smudges easily, (beware: racoon effect ahead!) and once the crayon looses it's sharp end, you can't sharpen it -- making it super hard to apply. Revlon is really expensive here in Australia so I wouldn't recommend these products. 

Hope you enjoyed this little collection of reviews! I'm sorry things have been quiet 'round here. By the end of this week I'll be back into the swing of things with some fabtabulous new post for you to enjoy :) Oh, and before I forget; I just joined Twitter so if you'd like to keep up to date with my interesting life and this blog, feel free to follow me

P.S: I can't stop listening to Delta Goodrem's latest album! I have been a fan since the beginning of her career and just adore her. This is my favourite song right now ♥

Gorgeous post!! I love these pictures. I find liquid eyeliner a pain & at the moment I've been using Rimmel's eye pencils, they're really good+cheap too!

I don't know what your skin type is but I get an oily
t-zone & foundation doesn't really work with that so I use MAC's Studio Moisture Tint which is a tinted moisturiser. It is a bit more expensive but it is worth saving for (it lasts ages)+it has SPF, yay!!

Sorry this comment was so long!!
