Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

Very good cleanser. Gentle and leaves skin feeling comfortable afterwards.
The best blush ever - my favourite shade. In the pot looks a bit ho-hum, but it's just the best. Goes on a gorgeous rosy pink, perfect for everyday and for sexy night looks as well. My first introduction to Bobbi Brown and now it's probably my favourite brand.
This is a gorgeous tropical flush shade. I probably wouldn't have bought it myself but my friend picked it up for me and I love it, such a nice summer colour. Really livens up the face, makes you look happy and fresh! It's a hot pink/orange and you just need one light sweep, so this will last and last. It also lasts all day and I love the MAC blush packaging.
I don't have a huge problem with the packaging, I've mastered how many clicks and how fast to click to get enough product! I like how they are long and slim so I can always find them in my bag! Grapefruit is a nice natural pale pink, basically my lip colour, and the shimmer doesn't show up, so it's a great one for me. Very similar to my fave, Watermelon.
Love it. Highly recommended. Very pigmented so am still learning how to apply the shadows with a lighter touch, but just gorgeous. The bronzey/khaki shade is amazing, I bought it for this alone, but I adore the black as well.
My one and only palette and it's brilliant! What great shades, they're perfect. The compact is nice and light and great for travelling or to have in your bag. Colours described well before, they only have very slight shimmer so great for day and night. You can do natural polished looks or more dramatic sexy nighttime looks. I just wish it had a lip brush, but I think there's space so I can pop one in myself.
I bought the Lip Glaze double in Watermelon and Tropical Fruit as part of the current collection. I think I've found my new favourite lip gloss. I've been looking for a colour like this for a long time so I'm very happy. It's a shimmer-free (yay!) pink. It's pale pink - but not pale that it takes colour away from your lips - it just adds a hint of pink. And a great gloss look and feel. Smells yummy. The other shade in the duo is Tropical Fruit and it looks darker in the tube - but goes on pretty much the same as Watermelon, or even sheerer! A great duo of pale glossy and shimmer-free pinks - just what I need! Very small contents though - I will have to use this sparingly, which is a shame, because these are my favourite colours that I could easily use everyday.
My first lipglaze. After all the moaning about the clicky pens I think I bought it more to find out what all the hype was about! I seriously don't see how there can be a problem if you control how much you click. Usually just a couple of clicks and you've got enough to do your lips. Praline is a lovely light beige gloss. I can see how the reviewer below would have it for their wedding! It would also be great with smokey eyes or simply for a clean shiny smart daytime look. And if you blend outwards towards the lipline I really do believe your lips look bigger and poutier than just applying it from side to side.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Fiction Eyeshadow [DISCONTINUED]

I adore khaki/bronze eyeshadows/liners and this is IT. It's beautiful, with just the right amount of shimmer (I don't like a lot of shimmer). I like swiping a little close to both lash lines for daytime, or I use more shadow for a nighttime smokey eye.
I love this blush! In the pan it doesn't look like anything special, but it's just fantastic. It's an extremely natural brown/pink (matte) - perfect for the day. And it stays on all day, which is wonderful. Highly recommended.
My HG of nude lipsticks. At first I thought it was a little too brown, but now I just wear it over lipbalm to diffuse it slightly, and it's perfect. A really lovely shade for the day (and I'm sure for the night with more dramatic eyes). Feels nice on, not too heavy not too light.
This is the first of a few products I've bought after jumping on the bandwagon, and luckily I really like it. I love the big brush, it's perfect for sexy long lashes. At first I kept it as my evening mascara, but now it's become my everyday mascara when I'm having a minimal make-up day. It's a little hard to get off, so I'd find a good make-up remover (I love Dior's) and rub really lightly with cotton wool.
Gorgeous glossy baby/natural pink that smells lovely and vanilla-y. Slight purple undertone but I don't like any purply on my lips and still love this gloss, so it's very negligible.
Gorgeous! Superb eyeshadow - a beautiful colour as descibred below, this is my new favourite eyeshadow for the smokey eye look, but with a twist, as it has that teal shading. Highly recommended.
Finally - the perfect red! Isn't this every woman's eternal search, to find her perfect red? Well, I've found it, thanks to an ex-makeup artist who raved about this colour and the rave reviews on MUA. So I bought it and wow - it suits me. With some reds, I've felt really paranoid wearing them, like I'm drawing attention to myself, but this feels completely natural. I'm wearing it today and it's perfect. I'm quite fair and it really suits me. Feels lovely on too. Highly recommended.
