I LOVE this concealer! it's probably the best concealer I've ever used. It's amazing for covering blemishes and I haven't had a problem with it settling in to any fines lines under my eye which is unusual for me :) definitely recommend it! It cost me 6.50 which isn't bad for the quality of the concealer :) definitely my HG
I don't like this foundation at all! the lightest colour "illusion" is SOO yellow it's horrible! it's far to dark for me as well. It has such a horrible smell! I don't know if it's just mine but it's disgusting! I'm just thankful it was a gift and I didn't waste my money on it! The packaging is a bit annoying! definitely do not recommend this product unless you're skin is the colour of the simpsons!
There's only one reason I didn't like this foundation.. and it's nothing really to do with foundation! none of my local shops sold it in a light enough colour.. they all started at 003 shell which is too dark for me. Which is why I wont repurchase it but i'll still use it up when I have a bit of fake tan on. Other then that it's a good foundation, the coverage is decent, I prefer a fuller coverage so it didn't really cut it for me :( but I do wear it on days where I want a lightweight coverage that looks like a better version of my skin. The sparkles don't bother me, I don't think they're noticeable at all. The Packaging is great! I can't fault it at all. Overall It's pretty good, not my favourite but it does the job!
This is my new favourite foundation!! I have loads of freckles and this stuff works amazing to cover them (no I don't hate my freckles but sometimes it's nice to not have any :) girls with as many freckles as me will understand) It can get a bit cakey if you apply to much in areas so be sure to blend well. It has a slight smell but once on you can't smell it. IT NEEDS A PUMP! it would be perfect with a pump!! Kind of expensive in Ireland considering it's a drugstore/pharmacy foundation! 17.50 is a bit much! I have both Ivory and Buff which are the lightest pink (Ivory) and yellow (buff) shades and they both work ok as I have neutral undertones and neither colour is TOO pink or yellow :) Overall I LOVE this foundation! just please make it with a pump!

I loved this foundation during the summer when I had a bit of colour but now that I'm back to my regular extremely pale colour this foundation is too dark for me even in the lightest shade. It blends extremely well and looks very natural on the skin and actually looks like skin! It's build-able to a point but then it can look a little odd. It has quite a strong smell but it fades when it's on the skin so it doesn't bother me at all. It does look pretty good in photo's and never gave me a white cast! The packaging is great! Like the catrice infinite matt it has a frosted glass bottle that makes it look much more expensive then it is and the pump is great and gives amazing control to the amount of product you get. For only 6 - 7 i'm very impressed! :)
Eyeliner -Catrice - Gel Eye Liner - 010 Black Jack with Jack Black

I have tried so many gel liners and none compare to this one! the staying power is INCREDIBLE! It lasts all day and looks like you just put it on at the end of the day! The packaging is pretty standard for a gel liner so nothing new or special there, but who cares? mine has a bit of a smell off it but it's only noticeable if you really put your nose up to the pot so it doesn't take anything away from how great the liner is! it's extremely cheap for how amazing it performs. around 4 - 5 if even, I can't remember exactly because I haven't had to repurchase it yet because it's lasted so long and I use it every day! I've had higher end liners before and most don't last as long and dry up much quicker! Definitely recommend this!!
I love this Foundation! I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I do. It's really cheap, for 1 fl.oz. it cost 6 - 7 The coverage is light to medium but definitely build-able! Because I'm so pale I thought the lightest shade would still be too dark for me but it's a pretty close match which is great! If you have oily skin I'd definitely recommend powdering a little bit. For me it doesn't feel like I'm wearing too much on my face. I wouldn't say it last 18 hours (but we all knew that :) ) but it can stay "fresh" so a good few hours. I'm in love with the packaging too! The frosted glass bottle makes it look like a much more expensive foundation and the pump is VERY controllable so you never squirt out too much and waste product!
I love this concealer! it has all the colours you could need in one palette! It's so cheap I think I paid around 3 - 4 which for 5 different colours including colour correcting colours, is great, I've already used up 2 of them :) The packaging is ok, the lid of mine has broken before but that was after everyday use for a few weeks. Overall I love it! it's perfect to throw in your bag and not have to worry about it if it gets damaged because it's so cheap.
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 15 Normal/Dry Skin
itsEmmaTime 12/9/2011 11:26:00 AM
I loved this foundation when I first got it, I was unsure which formula to choose as I don't have particularly dry or oily skin so I went with the dry as it was also for normal skin. The colour was pretty much perfect for me and I'm extremely pale so finding a colour match for me is pretty rare! I wore it for a few weeks and was pretty happy with the coverage and staying power but I hated the SPF! In pictures I looked even paler then I am which I didn't think could happen! Other then that I had no problems. So I decided to try the formula for oily skin as it has no SPF (which is now my HG) but after I ran out of the oily formula I needed a foundation to wear one day and thought I'd use the dry skin formula... BIGGEST MISTAKE I'VE MADE! Within 2 hours of applying it my skin felt so dry and so tight and really unbearable so I took it off 3 hours after I first applied it. later that evening I noticed my skin had broken out and it has made an active breakout get infected! I don't know how or why that happened as I had worn it plenty of times with no issues I've never had sensitive skin so to have issues with a foundation is very bizarre for me. :/
