I've picked this up for £3 in The Factory Shop. I was a choice between this and Kwik Dry and after reading the reviews on the latter I'm glad I picked this. I've only been using this for a short time but I love it. I usually just use a clear polish and I can really tell the difference using this. I don't think it gives any extra shine but I purchased for it its chip resistant qualities anyway of which I am impressed with, I just hope it stops my Sinful Colors polish from chipping so quickly. The packahing is opaque so you cant see how much product you have left but other than that I'm happy so far. *edit* *edit* *edit* *edit* Its hard to tell how much I have left as you cant see through the bottle but Im guessing I'm pretty low on it as I have to tilt the bottle to get any product and I plan to buy it again. Yes it had gone gloopy but it still works well and my initial comment on it not giving much shine was hasty, some of my polishes look like gels after applying this. I just wish I could see how much product was left.
Mascara -Revlon - 3D Extreme Mascara - Blackest Black

I can not say anything bad about this mascara. I purchased it in poundland and have used it everyday ever since. My lashes look thick and long. If you use it with a lash primer the effects are even more astounding. I cant believe I found something so perfect so cheap. Im going back to poundland at weekend to pick up some more.
I love this primer so much that I went back to the shop and bought a second bottle. As already mentioned by others its not much cop at covering imperfections etc but I was not expecting to, I wanted something to make my make up last longer and to give me a glow and this product delivers for both very well. The price is great too.
Lip Gloss -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss - All Colors

I have 12 of these glosses in total in shades and only paid a ound for each one. Im not sure how many shades there are in total but I know that I am missing some. 080 cherry blossom 100 english rose 110 first kiss 140 forever rose 170 sunset mauve 210 lustrious nude 400 lasting passion 410 old flame 420 all night flirt 500 red alert 600 hot flash 610 desert beauty. Of these the only one Im not really keen on is cherry passion as its a really really vivid colour and the stain sets quicker than the others so mistakes are much more obvious its also the most difficult to remove. The nude one if my fave so far. I really can't fault the staying power, they have lasted all day on me and Ive never had to reapply. A few of the brushes are frayed before the first the use but nothing to major. For the price I paid these are a great buy and my favourite glosses.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Shadow Stylist in Romantic Pink

I have this brand of eyeshadow in other shades and Im very happy with them but have to say this one is pretty useless. There is not much colour payoff at all. I also do not see the point of the ball in the lid. The other four shades of this are great but Id advise fair skinned people to give this shade a miss. It may work better on darker skin.
I just purchased this for £1 in shade 150 burning Autumn. I have pretty long lashes but have never tried brown before and boy am I glad I spotted this beauty at the back of the shelves. I love the coloured end and have only applied it to the tips of my lashes and its very effective but also subtle. I would repurchase this shade again but not sure about the pinks I have been reading about. A great bargain for £1.
I bought this for £2 in shade 235 nude. Like what has already been mentioned the packaging is nasty and also the smell. It reminds of items from my Grandmas make up bag. However I may have got lucky with the shade as it looks really natural on me. I have dark blonde hair and fair skin. The pigment is enough to make my lips look healthy but not enough to actually look like I am wearing lipstick - which is what I have been looking for. If the smell was gone and packaging a bit more modern then I would buy again but as it stands I dont plan to try other shades. I've only just applied it this morning so cant comment on staying power yet.
I just recieved this yesterday as part of the eye package deal for £10 in which you recieve the clinical eyelift cream and a pair of sunglasses. I love everything about this mascarra. The wand is great and provides an even coverage and makes my lashes look really long. The shade is subtle and most suitable for day time wear and does not make your lashes feel heavy or full of product. I think thelashes would get lost under a lot of heavy eye make up. I received a lovely compliment on my lashes this morning which has never happened in my life.
Mascara -Boots - Natural Collection LashCare Mascara - Clear

I bought this as part of the three items for £5 from the natural collections range boots currently have. I love this product and its perfect for days when you want a no fuss maek up application. The brush is pretty basic but picks up plenty of product and as its clear you can get into the corners and not worry about it touching your face. Works amazing after curling the lashes first and provides a real natural look or just a quick pick me up if your eyes look tired. Basic packaging but a very great value product.
I have this is black and brown. I bought each ne with a voucher so they cost me £2.50 each. I bought the brown as I fell in love with black. I use the brown as an eybrow pencil and it is perfect and lasts ll day. I have real trouble applying eyeliner but find these glide on and are really soft on the skin with no dragging. The colour is sublte and mistakes can be easily rectified with the smudger at the other end of the pencil,if you want a really striking black then a liquid product may be best as I find these colours not as dark. Great staying power and easily removeable.
I bought this in shade Unchanging beige for £3. I adore the nude shade but like so many others I have experienced the flaking and clumping.It highlighted every imperfection on my lips. I'll keep trying though as the shade is perfect but I have a feeling it will be getting donated to my friend and my bad experience with thisone makes me reluctant to try other shades.
I have this in shade whisper. It looks lovely in the tube but applies in amuch lighter shade and I like the smell. I much prefer the brush as its quite precise and has a sweet taste. The brush picks up plenty of pruduct and I always have to remove excess of side of pot. I plan to get more shades as I really love the shine.
I bought this in pink spa for £1. The colour is cute but does not go an as dark as it looks in the tube. The smell reminds me of perming solution from years ago. Its not too sticky which I like and its very easy to apply but wears away in less than an hour. I'm happy with it because of the price I paid and Im goin gto take it away for my beach holiday but I doubt I would buy it again.
