I received this in a swap, I really wanted to try it but didn't want to fork out the money in case i didn't like it. It look so glittery and thought it may not suit me. However I am so pleased I received it as I really love it, i only need a small amount and it makes such a difference to my look and brightens my face up and suit my skintone really well. Will defiantley purchase when this runs out.

Very dissapoining, this did nothing for my skin at all.
I love love love this colour blush. i have always found it difficult finding a good shade to contour with, most just make my face look dirty. NYX taupe blush is just perfect enough to contour with , i only need a tiny amount and it blends really well. And for the price you can't go wrong.
when i first got this foundation i didn't think it would provide me with good coverage and tbh i just got sucked into all the rave reviews about it and why I brought it. However this foundation is really lovely, it blends well and even though it is quite a thin consistency it gives me great covereage for my acne skin. The only downside apart from the price is that it is quite perfumed, i would still repurchase though

Wow I am really surprised that I like this foundation, I have struggled for years trying to find a foundation that did not look cakey and more oily. i have been using colour stay but thought I would try this and its great. its blends wells, doesn't make me more oily and does not break me out.
Great mascara. Gives me nice long lashes without looking clumpy.

Up until now I had been using Macs Prep and Prime Powder which was great - then I received this ELF HD powder and absolutely love it. It goes on great and doesn't leave a white cast which Macs P&P sometimes did.And plus its very cheap and you get tons more product. Definitely will buy again.
Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50

This is a great product for my oily skin, it sinks in nicely and keeps me matte , it doesn't have that greasy feel that some sunscreens have. Plus its great having the SPF50 in it. The only negative I can say is the price - it is quite expensive and you don't get much product for the price either. However I will most probably purchase again until I find something cheaper that works as well.
I use this as a setting powder after i finish my foundation - I don't find it gives any highlighting or colour which is not a problem. Its great at keeping me matte. Plus its very cheap. Will keep buying

Great product. I have really oily acne skin and this sinks in nicely, keeps me matte and doesn't break me out. Only shame is that I cannot get it in the uk so have to order online from the US - but the price and shipping are not to bad so don't mind really. Another big plus is that I only have to use a tiny amount and it goes a long way so the bottle will last me ages.

I had really high hopes for this product but am really dissapointed. I love UDPP but the packaging sucks! I read so many good things about SI and finally got my hand on one. Well - it does bring out the colour of the eyeshadow and makes it really bright and pigmented but the staying power is rubbish. When I got home my es had creased and worn away. With UDPP my es it still on when I get home after 7 hours at work. Won't be buying again!
This is one of mu first MAC eyeshadows and is probably my favourite. Its a great pinky matte and really brightens my eye
What can I say that has not already been said. This really is the best eyeshadow brush. I have many other eyeshadow brushes but always come back to the 217.

I brought this with my £5 off voucher at boots. I did not expect much from it tbh. Anyhow I am quite suprised - I used it for the first time today and although it is not the greatest in applying it did keep me quite matte and kept my makeup in place all day.
Only just started using this last week since reading great reviews. Fantastic colour so versitile and great for everyday use.
