This is a pretty good foundation, I first had the shade 'Sand', even though it is a little dark for me, I mixed it with the lightest foundation that I had and it was a perfect match for me! Has medium coverage, and glides on smoothly, very easy to blend. Doesn't feel too cakey on the skin, however be careful to blend in very well along jawline and into the hairline. One downside to this product was that it felt oily after I applied it, but that was solved by just blotting my face with powder every now and then. Would buy this again as it's good value for price and very light on the skin :) Perfect for the warmer months of the year.
I think I have found my new fav lipgloss!! I have the colour 'All Day Seduction', and I can happily say it has incredible staying power!! Applied it in the morning with my usual makeup and stayed on for a good couple of hours, which I think is pretty good considering I ate and drank in between as well! Doesn't feel sticky, very smooth and glossy with a hint of shimmer, and no weird smells. Would definitely buy this again!!

The colour is very sheer, almost a nude when applied, but can probably be used as a clear gloss over darker shades of lipstick. Has a very strong peppermint smell and taste which gives you that tingly sensation which I didn't like. Felt like my lips were on fire! Doesn't last for very long, and needs to be reapplied constantly! However, good to have on hand in the purse.
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003

I decided to try this mascara out after watching reviews on youtube from people saying that this was a really good mascara. They were wrong!! First of all, the mascara is very thick and clumpy, and makes my lashes stick together in one big clump! The brush is nothing special, just a regular old brush, however it is easy to get into the inner corner of your eye for those smaller lashes. The product flakes on my lashes after a couple of hours. However, there is a good side to this product, it is the only non-waterproof mascara that I have tried that actually holds a curl! I won't be buying this again though, will save my money and buy a better brand.
Tried this a few years ago, and have been hooked ever since. Its a great affordable exfoliator, helps to make my skin feel more smoother, and to remove any dry patches of skin, however its not suitable for everyday use as the granules in the exfoliator can be a bit harsh on the skin especially for more sensitive skin types. Overall, a pretty good exfoliator, will definitely buy this product again. :)
This is a great everyday eyeliner. It was pretty easy to apply because of its soft creamy texture and I found that the pencil glided on pretty well. It does fade and smudge a little throughout the day, especially in more warmer or humid conditions, but lasts a bit longer if set with a matte black eyeshadow. Smooth creamy texture is great for smudging and has a built in applicator for smudging when on the go. Overall, a good eyeliner, would definitely buy it again.
This foundation was quite cakey in my opinion, even with the smallest amount applied on. It glides and blends pretty well but didn't give a finish that looked natural. Has a nice creamy texture, and gives a medium coverage. It broke me out, so probably would not buy it again.
One of my favourite powder foundations from the drugstore at the moment. Was recommended to me by a friend who is also a big fan and has never been disapointed with it. It gives me a pretty light coverage which I find is wearable for school or work. Comes with a sponge, however I just use a regular powder brush and it works very well. Gives a really smooth matte finish, and I find that coverage lasts quite long, only had to touch up once throughout the day. Can be applied wet, however I find the dry application better for my skin type. Packaging is in a nice slim blue compact and comes with a nice big mirror that is perfect for any girl's handbag. One thing I really like about the packaging is that you can just buy refills, which is alot cheaper than buying the complete compact. Would definitely buy it again.
Cetaphil's great for everyday gentle cleansing. Helps to remove light makeup, and removes that greasy feeling on your skin, especially after a long day and doesn't irritate the skin or eyes either. After washing, leaves your face feeling a bit more refreshed, and not dry or 'waxy' which I have experienced with other cleansers. Has helped to stop my breakouts, and I only get them every so often. Would definitely recommend it for people with sensitive skin as its quite gentle.
This mascara really helped to thicken and lengthen my lashes. It didn't clump and really helped to separate my lashes. It has a big wand thats easy to use, with a more narrowed point which is easier to get into the corner of your eyes. Packaging is fun, nice bright yellow and purple. However, a downside is that it has a weird sort of smell, but that doesn't seem to bother me. Would buy it again, one of my favourite drugstore mascara's at the moment.
This mascara is okay for beginners who are starting to get into makeup. I personally found it clumpy, and the mascara tends to smudge or flake after a few hours. Overall, a good starter mascara, and good for the lower lashes as it doesn't add volume. (Don't like the volume look on lower lashes)
