Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light
Casey088 2/15/2012 7:42:00 PM
I received this mineral foundation free off a competition (hense the 5 lippy rating for price!) It is absolutely amazing, it is the perfect colour for my fair skin and it really evens out my skin tone. I use it coupled with a handy buki brush I also got. I don't think I could ever go back to using liquid foundation, it's just too oily for my skin. I have almost run out of my free sample, so I'll definitely be buying the larger version!!
Treatments (Eye) -The Body Shop - Fragrance-Free Elderflower Eye Gel

I have been searching desperately for a product to reduce my under-eye circles. I went into the body shop intending to purchase the Wise Woman Eye Cream, and the shop assistant recommended this Elderflower eye gel for my dark circles. I've been using it every morning and night for about 2 weeks now, and I keep it in the fridge as instructed. I have not noticed any difference at all to my under-eye circles. I find the mixture a little sticky, but it certainly does feel refreshing for a few minutes. I will not buy this product again because it's a bit useless, still on the hunt for a good eye cream!
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Crackle Overcoat - Distressed Denim

I bought the OPI crack covercoat a few months ago and absolutely loved it! Unfortunately it was very expensive, so when I came across the Sally Hansen version which was half the price I jumped at the chance to buy it. It cracked fine on my nails and was lovely for around two days, after two days I noticed my nails began to peel and split terribly. I immediately took it off and allowed my nails to recover for a few weeks. I tried the crackle again, (to see if it was the nail polish or just me) and it happened after two days again. It completely ruined, peeled and split all my nails (especially my middle and ring fingers.) I emailed Sally Hansen company explaining my problem and I'm still waiting for a reply and it's been a few weeks. I haven't noticed anyone having the same problem, but I definately know it's the Crackle, because I have tried OPI again and it's working lovely. I won't ever repurchase this product and unfortunately had to throw it away. I guess paying the bit extra for the OPI is the way to go for me.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner

I bought this eyeliner to wear for my 21st birthday party. I had never used a liquid eyeliner before and a friend recommended this product for me. I was pleasantly surprised how long it lasted! I wore it for around 6 hours and it stayed on fine. The applicator seemed to dry out a little quickly so I needed to dip it in a few times to do each eye, but the applicator was really nice and glided well. Overall I love this liquid eyeliner and will buy it again!
Liquid -The Body Shop - Moisture Foundation SPF 15

I have spent many years trying to find a foundation for my very fair skin. I came across body shop's moisture foundation last year, it's the absolute best foundation I've found. I love pretty much everything about this foundation, it matches my skin colour lovely, one bottle last me months and months and the texture is perfect. It was a little pricey, but that does not phase me as long as it works. I highly recommend this foundation, I have already bought a second bottle!
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme

I really like this moisturiser. It does stay true to the packaging and is so soft!! I only gave it 4 because I have found it can tend to get a little oily on my skin, but this hasn't caused any breakouts or any other problems.
I love this mascara. I've tried so many different mascaras but I just keep coming back to this one. I've got quite long eyelashes so I've been looking for volume and this certainly gives it. I haven't experienced any clumping and its separates my eyelashes nicely. Plus got it on sale which is another plus. I have some friends who say this mascara clumps on them, but it works fine for me. Definitely give this mascara a try!!
