Liquid -Annabelle - SkinTrue Natural Lightweight Makeup

This is the first foundation I ever used and I didn't realise how great it was until I tried another one. It didn't stand out in any way because it was working. It covers acne well, didn't seem to worsen it, blends right in, matched my skin tone perfectly, no smell, looks fairly matte, creamy. There's literally nothing to complain about.

Excellent first time use today at my local nail salon for a pedicure - Whitened lilac/pale blue/grey as another describes below. Really, really like this and did not have the streaky application problems someone details here. This will probably become a favorite of mine and a regular product. Love this. (I should comment that I am not sure this would look good on my fingernails as it is very cool toned and might look corpse-like but, on the toes, I love it)


Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

I had quite high expectations for this product as I saw Lisa Eldridge use this in one of her videos. Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. Judging by the packaging and other influencer reviews, I thought this would be a nice dupe for MAC's paint-pots, however I don't think that is the case. Please bare in mind I have only tried one shade in the matte finish so I can't talk on behalf of the rest of the colours and finishes in these line of eye shadows. Some formulas may perform better than others.

For me, I intended to use these as an eye shadow base, I brought the nude shade (I can't remember the exact name) and found the formula INCREDIBLY dry. I found it extremely difficult to blend, even with a densely packed brush and found my self really tugging on my eyelids while trying to sheer this out. This also brought out every bit of texture on my lids and as a result, my shadows did not sit well on top, especially shimmers! As well as all of that, the product creased within a few hours and my eyelids are on the dryer side.

The only pro's I can give on this product is the packaging, which is personal preference of course, I like the glass pot, it gives the product a more luxurious feel. And the price is excellent, they're only £5 each with some nice colour choices, and the pigmentation is okay.

These may work if you're someone with minimal texture on your eyelids and have oilyer lids. I would avoid this if you're mature, have dry textured lids or any kind of creases. Overall, if you're thinking about buying on of these and using it as an eye shadow base, DON'T. I switched back to my primer potion very quickly :)


Lipstick -Rimmel - Lasting Finish - Airy Fairy

I was very pleasantly surprised with this lipstick. I usually wear HE brands and have never been able to find a good neutral pinky nude lipstick at the drugstore for my NC30 skin tone (medium olive, yellow undertones) but I'm loving this shade. I honestly just spent weeks trying Tom Fords lipstick line looking for a good everyday shade of pinky nude that wouldn't wash me out or be too bright and couldn't find a good shade.. And I found this on a random Target shopping trip? May not be quite the Tom Ford formula.. But it's 4.99 vs $50 and the perfect shade? Score!

Cleansers -Dermalogica - PreCleanse

I decided to give this a go after seeing pretty positive reviews across the board. The first time I tried it i was lucky enough to get a sample size, I'm not cheap, but $50 for a bottle of product I won't use is just not happening, ever. I went back for the bottle the next week!

I use proactive 3 step as my daily routine (only thing that keeps the acne away) but it's not very effective at removing my makeup and most wipes etc break me out like crazy. This is an absolute godsend. I was wary at first as its an oil product (the word oil scares me, and I think it's enough to make a pimple form from thoughts) but I've only had positive responses from my skin. It is super effective at getting any trace of makeup off in one shot, and trust me I use some heavy duty foundations. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and simply clean. It's got a very light scent, that's just pleasant as with most dermalogica products I've come across.

If you're feeling like your day to day skincare isn't really eliminating all your makeup, takes 2+ goes to get it all off or isnt truly cleaning dirt/excess oil from your pores I would definitely recommend giving it a go! If you use heavy foundations especially, this will make a huge difference to your makeup removal at the end of the day.


Polishes -SinfulColors - North Star

North Star is an elegant lady-like shimmer filled pale lavender polish from the Kylie Jenner Denim & Bling collection. It says Trend Matters on the cap but this actually came out in the Denim & Bling collection instead. This is a very light lavender but it's so light and shimmer filled that it actually appears pink on me. I am sooo in love with this gorgeous polish! The shimmers are easily visible even in the dried polish. This is such a lovely girly shade and it's perfect for a palette cleanser or just as a spring pastel. Although this collection was released last year, there are still polishes from it in stock on store shelves. Most Walgreen's now only have bits and pieces of it as newer collections have released, but I was in one yesterday that still had the cardboard floor display with all the polishes available and also Big Lots! has them. I found this at Big Lots! but it is also on eBay if you don't mind paying more than retail for it and for the shipping. It's such a great polish color on me that I went back and got a back up bottle. The formula on this is rich and on the thicker side and this covered completely in two easy coats. The brush is a standard thin straight cut edge and it works fine for application. I was able to get precise edges and this polish stayed right where I laid it down without pooling, running, flooding my cuticles, or balding with additional brushstrokes. This wore pretty well and I really didn't have any complaints. I did get some chips on the sides of my ring fingers where the nail corner took a hit and was flexible enough not to break, but the polish was not flexible and so a small chip came off. This occurred on both ring fingers. I think this is more because the layers were thick and not my usual thin layers as that alone makes a polish more prone to chip. I really didn't mind though since it was on day 4 and I only paid $2 for this polish. As always, I did one protein enriched protective base coat, 2 layers of color and a fast drying top coat to protect the finish. This is such a beautiful shimmer filled polish, Yes please!

Highlighters -Essence - Pure Nude Highlighter

This is a really, really lovely highlighter. You can use this as a natural highlighter, or build it up and make it more intense. This is definitely a warmer color, but it does work on my neutral toned fair skin.


Liquid -NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

This foundation is the biggest disappointment. I have no problem splurging on a good foundation but this foundation was in no way worth it. Firstly the colour was way too orange toned for my skin, I decided not to fret and to use it as my foundation when I have a bit of tan on. It sits terribly, I can feel it on my face the whole time I am wearing it but when I look in the mirror after about an hour after application it looks as though it's come off, sticks to the most unappealing places and makes my whole face feel dirty. I don't know if it's just my skin or if I got a bad batch as I've heard such great reviews for this foundation but I was honestly shocked at how bad this foundation is.
