Eyeliner -BeneFit Cosmetics - Babecake eyeliner [DISCONTINUED]
Pixiechix 8/15/2010 7:32:00 PM
I love this and I have had it for ages, maybe over a year now. Thats why I have put that it isn't too expensive because it lasts and lasts and lasts, and then lasts a bit longer! I don't know why I bought it because I am not a liquid or gel liner girl at all, I just couldn't get the hang of it and just made a really annoying mess and had to start all my make up over again! This though is very different indeed, thank goodness. I think I find it easier because you can choose how liquidy it is as you only need to put a tiny drop of water on your brush and if its not enough just keep adding a little more until it is at the consistancy that you like to work with. I also bought the get bent brush which is brilliant. I love this. You don't need a sharpener and it stays put too. I like to use both the black or brown depending on what look I want. I will buy again but its going to be a while before I need to. You can also put it on quite dry too, which is what I did to get used to it before I started making a mess, hahaha. I soon got the hang of it, surpisingly quickly too!
Powder -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup

I am so excited! I just bought this about 2 hours ago and I love it!!! I already have the doublewear liquid foundation which I love too. I have both in Ecru, I have fair but mega oily skin. This is really fine and goes on really nicely. I have big pores and this covers them for me. I pick my spots, I know I shouldn't but I do. Some powders can cake around them and this doesn't. It covers the spots well and evens out my skin tone. I am a worried that it won't last fro other reviews but I will see how I get on and then report back! Fingers crossed. This isn't as thick a cover as the liquid foundation but it is lighter. I got for when I get out of bed too late and haven't got time to do full make up but still need coverage. Will be back later...........I really want to like this!
I love this product and have been using it for ages, I have only just got down to pan. I have really oily skin and I was worried that as this has a slight shimmer to it that all would do would highlight the oil! As I am pale though I loved the lighter bronzer. I bought it and tried and it's great. It doesn't highlight any oil or make me look any oilier. Since I have been using Double wear foundation this doesn't just give me a lovely natural colour but also a lovely natural glow and no oil! I am so pleased. I love it!
This stuff is great and the only one that actually does plump my lips out. When you put it on your lips tingle a bit for a few seconds. Try to just put it on your lips because if it goes anywhere else you will get a red ring like previous reviewer said. I really love this. I said to a friend about it and she tried it on but she didn't like it so I would say that it is one to try when you are in the store before you buy. Especiall if you are sensitive to products.
Wow, after reading the reviews on here I had to try this and it's great. I have green eyes and brown hair and this just sets my eyes off. I love it. It does look white when its in the pot but it actually shows up as a really lovely soft light golden sheen. There was hardly any fall out if any at all and you can build the colour up if you want to. Fab buy and def repurchase but I think this will last ages! Thanks for the helpful reviews I'm very pleased with my purchase!
Lip Treatments -Soap and Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss

I got these in a pack and I don't like them at all. The consistancy is really thick and sticky and doesn't taste very nice either! They did make my lips look a bit plumper I think but lip injection gloss really plumps out lips so this didn't compare at all. If you have long hair like me then if you are out and the wind blows, half your hair sticks to your lips, horrible! Wouldn't buy again.
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Daywear Plus Cream for Normal/Combination skin
Pixiechix 8/5/2010 11:37:00 AM
I have become an estee devotee recently and recieved this in a trial size which was enough for quite a lot of moisturising. I have really oily skin and I found that a lot of moisturisers didn't help my skin at all. Cliniques one was awful. I decided to buy this as the lovely fresh cucumber smell is great, it perks up my skin and doesn't make it more oily. I also like this as it has an spf 15 and you can use it day and night so no need to buy a night cream too. I think its worth the money as again, I have wasted so many that I have bought as they just didn't agree with my face! Think I will stick with this. I found that it really sunk into my skin and was a great base for my estee serum and then double wear foundation. You need a decent base moisture base for double wear oterwise it looks cakey and picks out any dry bits. Love it! Wish it was cheaper but I suppose you get what you pay for.
Hi, I went into the department store to buy the estee lauder night recovery complex and the assistant gave me a couple of samples of double wear. One of them was too dark for me but the Ecru coulour was a perfect match! I really like natural looking makeup so I didn't think that I would like this. First time I used it I put way too much on and looked like a ghost porcelain doll! Next I put moisturiser on and my other estee serum and it looks amazing!!! I love it. I have mega oily skin and foundation never stays on past lunchtime and looks awful. This stuff doesn't budge!!! I do get a slight sheen over my t zone in the afternoon but I just blot with Benefit Get Even face powder and it looks perfect again. I am so pleased I have bought a bottle. Covers my reddish nose and evil monthly pimiples too. Doesn't oxidise and doesn't break me out. I just put it on with my fingers as I just can't get on with using a brush and I find it easier to control how much I use. I just love how this makes me look! It's not cheap but too be honest, I have about 12 foundations in my drawer that I don't use for some reason or another so this is cheap as I don't have to go and find something else. I must have spent a fortune on foundations, high ends one too but they did nothing for my skin. I am very pleased. P.S I am now running out of this bottle and need to repurchase, I know, its lasted me ages and I have been wearing it everyday to work in most of that time! My skin though, since using this has really gone downhill. I have always had oily skin but now have lots of dry patches, more pimples, blackheads and I think that a lot of this is down to the foundation, sadly. I have had a couple of weeks off without using foundation and it has improved so much. I am not going to use the last bit in the bottle but sadly have to find a new foundation. I have noticed too though that towards the end of the day my face is incredibly oil and the make up does transfer. If you get this keep an eye on the condition of your skin.
I am never without these wipes, I love the aloe one's for sensitive skin. Nearly always on some kind of offer too or buy in the packs of four. These do everything and anything. I use them to remove makeup, double wear foundation just slides off. Taking off eye makeup too as they don't hurt my sensitive eye area. They really moisturise your face too. I take them to festivals, camping always when I go on holiday anywhere, they come too. I got the plastic tub that JandJ sell which holds two packs and looks nicer. I couldn't be without them. I have used other facial wipes but none are better than these and these are also half the price for twice as much! I buy higher end makeup and have tried higher end wipes but nothing is better than these!
I love this too! I use this one in the shower as it is a gel it doesn't run off my hand. I just put all over my body after the shower and then pat dry. Easy and better than any of the expensive brands. I get lots of comments about how nice and soft my skin is!
Skincare - Body -Johnson & Johnson - Lavender Baby Oil

I love this so much and have used it for ages. I can never be bothered to moisturise everyday so I put drops in the bath. If I have a bath before bed I put this in and I can smell the lovely scent. I come out all nice and moisturised and pat dry. Mega cheap and perfect. I love JandJ.
This foundation is great and I was surprise not to see it on here. It's oil free and really good if you have oily skin. I found that most foundations I have used 'slip' by lunchtime as my face is so oily. This foundation gives a great medium coverage, it doesn't clog and it gives you a lovely glow. I do have to touch up with blotting powder a couple of times in the afternoon but apart from that it keeps the shine at bay! Itdoesn't crease either which I like, I sometimes get that round my nose and I hate it but none here! You can also layer this for more coverage and it really even's out skin tone. I use the lightest shade and it doesn't make me look ghost white either! It is mattifying which is great for me. I will definately be keeping with these guys on this one. I use Benefit Get Even as blotting podwer orUrban Decay mineral foundation/power and it looks great.
I love this lipstick sooooo much!!! I have a really fair but warmish complexion and I don't like really thick bright lipsticks and have been using lip glosses most of the time as couldn't find the lippy I wanted. This is perfect though! It has the micro glitter in it and looks like a light plum colour when you just look at it. Once on though it's a lovely natural pinky colour that makes your lips look plumper. A bit like an after glow, after...... That nice natural look. I love it and am really pleased with it. It doesn't look glittery on I think it just reflects the light a lot so your lips do look plumper with a natural slight redness pink to them with a soft dewy looking hue. I think it would suit all complexions and can be built up which looks great too. Another plus is that it stays on for ages and doesn't dry your lips out. I haven't noticed the bitter taste but I don't lick my lips much maybe? I will try though when I next put on! I am so please I have at last found a lipstick that I like. I don't really like the packaging though and would have preferred it if it was less bulky and gimmicky. UD get another massive thumbs up from me though!
Pressed Powders -Clinique - Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder
Pixiechix 12/11/2009 12:17:00 PM
I thought the same as poster below itcouldbesteph. As I have oily skin I wanted a powder that would keep my complexion matte and that I could also carry around to blot during the day. I found that this powder was quite thick and drying and was really chalky and left me looking overdone. It made my face feel tight once applied which I didn't like. From some of the other posts, the ones who like it seem to use a brush to apply. Maybe thats what I was doing wrong! I was using the sponge but I don't really want to carry a brush around with me all day. It's a shame as other Clinique products are great, just not this one for me. I wouldn't buy it again. The packaging is good though with a nice big mirror.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - Dr Feelgood
Pixiechix 12/11/2009 11:21:00 AM
I don't think that I actually got what this was for as I was under the impression when buying that it would mattify my skin and control shine. It didn't. I moisturised, then put dr feelgood on and then foundation and powder. I noticed it on my skin but it did absolutely nothing for me at all. I was really dissapointed. I still have it and go back to it sometimes in the vain hope that it might suddenly e a good product for me but nope! The tin has put me off too, it doesn't look so good after a while. I wish it worked for me like it has some others, shame really.
