Donna P.'s (ddv1000) Beauty Product Reviews
This product is really cool. with just one coat you can make your shiney nail polish as matte as can be. I like to play around with this stuff and only use it on the tip, or dot it over the nail to create different effects. the down side of this product is it chips pretty soon after use. (but thats just me, i'm always clunking my hands around, or washing them)
Great affordable lipsticks
I need more of these lipsticks!
At the moment I only have the colour strawberry milk, it's a really pretty light pink. I generally dab it on my lips and blend it over with my finger. I do this so that my lips dont appear too light and washed out. The consistency is really creamy, and the colours are so vibrant than you dont need to apply a tone.
Affordable cheek product
I have really fair skin, so blush often looks very bright on my cheeks. I mainly use this powder very lightly to give my skin a bit of colour.
Its good having the 5 shades in the one product because you can either swirl your brush over them all, or target one colour. money well spent
I only have one of these, i'd seen marlena from makeup geek rave about these so thought i'd give one a try. I dont think i purchased the most wearable colour, however it truely is pretty. I'd recommend using the bold colours for a night out on the town, or for a party. I want to get try the disco queen colour, i think that could look cute over some black liner and with mascara to spice up an every day look.
Great long wear makeup
I'd recommend this foundation for someone who wants medium to full coverage and wants it to last all day long. Although i really did like this foundation, it does have a few downsides - it dries super fast so you need to blend it into your skin fairly quickly. it can also appear like a mask if you use a bit too much - less is more with this foundation, and the scent is also a bit strong, but it doesnt seem to linger on the skin.
I generally dont wear a lot of eyeshadow but when i do, i like to use this primer. it definitely prevents creasing, and you only need to use a tiny amount. i'd recommend shaking or to softly squeeze the tube while the lid is on to mix up the primer so that it applies evenly.
This brand is pretty hard to get your hands on in Australia. I got mine at the Kit Cosmetics stand in Myer.
lip tars are brilliant!! the colour pay off is amazing, and they last all day. as with what most ppl say, do not apply too much. the tube is designed to cover an entire human body if painted! so just use a tiny amount on a lip brush.
I have hush and devine. hush is a nice neutral pink - appropriate for day wear/work, while devine is a very vibrant pinky/coral.
