Empties: #4

1. Guci Envy Me EDT
Notes: Peony, Pink Pepper, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Lychee, Sandalwood, Musk 
I would describe this scent as floral, somewhat sweet (not overly sweet), classy and a bit tangy. The longevity is not that great it's about 2-3 hours. I got this perfume a long time ago, at the time I enjoyed the smell but my taste has since changed and I'm not really a fan anymore. But the bottle is beautiful.

Would I repurchase? No

2. AVON Wink EDT
Top notes: pink grapefruit, cranberry, raspberry, red currant, black currant, blueberry
Mid notes: freesia, calla lily, jasmine, water lily, lotus, rose
Base notes: blonde wood, musk
This scent is extremely fruity and sweet. This is the kind of scent I love but my problem with this is the longevity, it literally lasts an hour on me. Terrible... just terrible. I'm looking for a perfume that suits my taste but that also lasts all day. I think this is discontinued but you can find it on ebay. But because it doesn't last long I wouldn't recommend it.  

Would I repurchase? No

3. Beyonce Heat EDT
Top Notes: passion fruit, blood orange and cherry
Middle Notes: hibiscus, mango blossom and orchid
Base Notes: teak wood, amber and musk
It smells so fruity and sweet and feminine. I love it. It's affordable and though the lasting power is not 100% about 3-4 hours it's not too bad. Ahhhh I love it.

Would I repurchase? Ahh hells yeah (already have)

4. Curious by Britney Spears EDP
Notes: magnolia, tuberose, vanilla-infused musk, sandalwood, jasmine, and pear
This is a good mix of fruity and floral. It's a sweet, young scent which I really like it. At the end of the day you're left with a more musky scent which I find really pleasant. The longevity is great it lasts all day (6-7 hours). It's one of those perfumes that you can smell on your clothes when you finish wearing it. 

Would I repurchase? Definitely (already have)

5. Smith Street Market Scented Body Wash - Milk Bottles

I received as a Christmas present a while ago. I did a review on the other scent here. I have the same opinions about this body wash as I did with the other scent. It doesn't lather properly, it was quite average however I did prefer this scent. It smelt like marshmallows which was nice but not a favourite.

Would I repurchase? No

6. Lux Velvet Touch Body Wash - Peach and Whipped Cream
Honestly this smells like soap with a hint of peach (like a smidgen). It felt nice on the skin, it lathered okay and it was cheap. You can find this at The Reject Shop for $2-2.50. So if you're looking for a new body wash and you're on a budget this is pretty good. However I wouldn't repurchase it because I like trying different body washes. I get bored of the same scent.

Would I repurchase? No

7. Garnier Deodorant Invisi Mineral - Cool Energising Fragrance
(Bluey Green bottle)
I really enjoy this series of deodorants because they work really well at keeping me smelling fresh. And they also have a really nice price point. I really like this scent, it's light and fresh and doesn't interfere with my perfume (because I want my perfume to be more prominent). Another plus is that it doesn't leave any white marks which is always a thumbs up in my book.

Would I repurchase? Yes

8. Garnier Deodorant Invisi Mineral - 48hr Max Protect
The scent of this is a bit grassy (I really don't know how to describe this one) but not in a bad way. Once again it does what I want which is to keep me fresh. So yeah love the line of deodorants and will keep purchasing them but only at half price ;) However this particular scent isn't one of my favourites so I probably won't repurchase this scent.

Would I repurchase? No

9. Cussons Pure - Grapefruit & Lime Body Wash
Smells exactly like it grapefruit and lime but the grapefruit scent is slightly stronger. It smells amazing, it lathers nicely and it's cheap. This is another I got from The Reject Shop for $2-3.

Would I repurchase? Maybe

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from

Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 

Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
