Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Barbara Daly for Tesco Oil Free Foundation

I really love this product, I cant believe I got this for £7 plus it was 3 for 2 so I got two more products :D Ive tried a lot of foundations, from low to high end, my current favorite is still Clarins everlasting foundation, but I've really fell in love with this. I have really oily skin, especially on the T-zone, so foundation always slips off my nose and forehead, but this really stays put, its easy to apply, goes on smooth and doesn't cake and always looks smooth and freshly applied all day. I'm really not keen on the smell of it, its kinda strong but it vanishes fairly quickly and the bottle comes with a wee built in spatula that makes applying it even easier which is a added bonus, the only thing I find wrong with the packaging is a few times the bottle cap has came loose in my bag and went everywhere I think maybe I got one with a dodgy cap, but it doesn't bother me too much. But all in all a amazing product that I just happened to find in Tesco <3
Ive been looking for a nice nude lipstick for a while now, but this isn't one of them. I'm really pale, so the lipstick itself just has a odd orange shade to it, not to mention if your lips are a bit chapped it will outline every flaw as well as being drying on the lips causing the problem anyway XD I found this quite expensive for a drug store lipstick, its not really worth it...
I came across this product purely by accident, I figured it would come in handy when I went camping, turns out I cant live without it now! It leaves your hair clean looking, and smelling fresh although im really not too keen on the smell of the original but its not overpowering and fades pretty quickly, it leaves a lot of white residue in your hair, so you have to spend a good amount of time rubbing it out so it wouldn't be good for people with dark hair, the fact im blond means I can disguise it a bit better. All in all I love this! it means I don't have to wash and style my hair all the time and is a god send when im running late. =]

I love this so much, its so sheer and beautiful on top of liquid foundation, I have the palest shade in rose nude, which is a perfect match, it helps my foundation lasts hours and hours. I'm not much of a fan of the packaging I found that quite disappointing, kinda cheap looking but I can look over that, the wee sponge thing is pretty crap too so I replaced it with a better one and it fits perfectly. I think the wee mirror is a nice wee addition I didn't expect. all in all a amazing product that I will definitely buy again, I've bought it twice already and love it so will happily buy it again <3
I got the electric blue version of this which has amazing colour, and really does look amazing, but application is messy and fiddely, it cracked a lot after drying and flakes into my eyes, and everyone knows massive pieces of glitter in eyes us never a good thing, so this caused a lot if irritation within the eyes. I really wanted to love this as the colour is so beautiful, but it fell short :(

the packaging for this is super cute, but I dislike how its in a pot, I have the watermelon one which is link and smells so good, but doesn't add much colour or shine to your lips, I don't feel that it moisturies that well as I felt it left them dryer. for these reasons I won't rebuy.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

I think the colour of this is gorgeous, it really shows up and looks so natural. it really gives you a beautiful glow. I love how its a mousse too which is amazing :) overall a amazing product that will definitely buy again.
let me just start by saying this is the most beautiful foundation I've ever tried. I got 103 ivory. I usually find it so hard finding foundations, I'm so pale so everything looks too dark or Orange on my skin, but the colour match us perfect so clarins shades seem designed for paler people as well as it being for oily skin, this is like a god send for me after feeling like I've tried every foundation under the sun from low end to high. anyway back to this, this gives you medium to full coverage and smells amazingly of watermelon which I love, but some people may find that annoying or may cause them to break out, the smell doesn't last long tho. It covers every blemish evenly and doesn't emphasise dry skin, the formulation stays matte all day and doesn't oxidise which is amazing! it does stay fresh all day, the first day I wore it was horrible, warm and humid and it lasted all day without caking, even in my work which seems to be hotter than hell. the price is a bit steep but well worth it, finally a foundation that keeps it promises.<3
I really hated this product, I felt so done after buying this. I figured that it would be amazing considering the hype but it turned out to be immensely dissapointing. this left my lips dryer and more chapped than before, as well as cause the area around my lips to turn red and inflammed which is odd coz I don't tend to have sensitive lips. this was a massive disappointment.
I love the packaging for this, its lovely =] the long handle is so nice, the brush is amazing to use, dries fast and lasts ages =] Its amazing! The only problem is theres not much in colour options which kinda sucks but oh well =]
This is probably my most hated perfume ive ever smelt. Not only is it immensely overpowering but im really allergic to it...and considering my mum adores it i pretty much die whenever she uses it XD

This product is alright, i found it kinda annoying, it does give volume but nothing amazing, i found that it kinda got crispy in my hair up at the roots, for that reason im not repurchasing.
I love this shampoo i really do! I got a massive 500ml bottle with free coditioner for only £3. The shampoo itself is amazing leaves my hair so soft and bright as well as easier to manage! I love it =]

This product is amazing! I have naturally blonde hair that ive never dyed, and after one use of this product. My hair glowed! It really enhanced the colour and made it so soft and shiny, i was really impressed, but...i think its went off the shelves as in having a hard time finding it now.

I find this product amazing, it contains no perfume or nasty chemicals which i find a massive bonus, plus simple doesn't test on animals which i love. This leaves my skin clean and soft and doesn't fuel any breakouts, in fact ive been finding ive had less since i started using this. I love this =]
