Burberry No. 10 Definition Liner Brush

This brush is really soft and gentle to use.  Softer than Suqqu!  Yes, it is possible!
They both do the same thing but the Burberry feels better in my opinion. 

Since Suqqu brushes are difficult to obtain, give the Burberry one a fair go because it is not as expensive and the quality is better.

NARS Lipstick TZIGANE (SH)

NARS Lipstick in  TZIGANE

Since I can't repurchase my favourite nude lipstick from Dior anymore, I had to find a new nude color and this is perfect even though it isn't as pale.  I think it's a wonderful colour to give my lips some life when I'm in a hurry to get out the door and there is no time to fiddle around with a bright lip color.

Applies like a dream, light weight, no scent or taste... everything I want from a lipstick.

Fyberspates

My order arrived within 12 days.  UK to Australia if anyone is interested.  I think that is a very reasonable time frame. This is probably the fastest I have received something from the UK without express postage fees.
  
Here are the goods:
Scrumptious Lace Water 100g each
Nef Sock Sea Green 400m 100g

Suqqu 2012 Christmas Makeup Kit B

The EX-10 Hikarikonayuki palette is the only reason to buy Suqqu 2012 Christmas Makeup Kit B :P




I hope the pictures help anyone that want to buy this palette without seeing the product in person.

More Addiction By Ayako

Last time I featured two eyeshadows and a cheek stick and I have recently purchased two more eyeshadows and a lipstick.

For colour reference I have them in the same photo.
Pink Python, Silent Screen, Concrete Jungle, Sandbar

I really like Pink Python & Concrete Jungle.  They look kind of scary in the pan but they look lovely when applied.  Sandbar is nice for inner corner highlight for my skin tone, it's subtle and elegant.

Revenge & Last Scene

So far I have only used them as lipsticks.  The weather is too humid for testing face products.
The texture of these are neither drying or moisturising, they are neutral.  I always apply with a lip brush because they are quite bright and pigmented.  Personally I like to apply a long lasting gloss over Revenge to dull it down a little bit in color and to give it some shine as you can see it looks a little bit dry.

BECCA Ultimate Colour Gloss SPF 15 Color Malibu Punch - bright tangerine

BECCA Ultimate Colour Gloss SPF 15 Color Malibu Punch - bright tangerine

The color is lovely and perfect for summer and the up coming Melbourne Cup event.

The texture is amazing because it is moisturizing and light weight while it is very pigmented.
Very comfortable to wear with no sticky feeling, foul taste or smells.
The product has a very light vanilla bean smell, like the real pods not the essence or artificial vanilla sugar.

Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick & Gloss

Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in Color 115 Rose Coral


This lipstick is sheer.
It has a strong fruit candy smell.  It has shimmer that you can feel on the lips when you press your lips together and the texture is very sticky.  I don't like this lipstick.


Clarins Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss in Color 08 Papaya


This is pigmented for a gloss.  
It has gold shimmer and a sticky texture.  This has a scent but not as strong as the lipstick.


Both products felt drying and emphasized lip lines and you'll probably notice that in the pictures below.
