Really gorgeous scent - people also comment on my perfume when I wear this, though someone did once ask me if I was making jasmine tea! I agree with some other reviews that at first it is a little strong, but after a moment it is a truly gorgeous smell. So summery, and quite unusual. Adore diptyque!
Pressed Powders -Clarins - Powder Compact in 10 Ivory Beige

I have this is 20 natural beige. I usually hate using powder because it can make foundation look too heavy, however this compact simply removes any shine - really natural and matte finish, and a perfect colour for my skin tone.
I adore this - the best primer ever. It makes my face look really awake also makes my foundation blend more easily. My mother gave this product to me as she didn't think it did anything for her skin, but for me it has been remarkable. It also smells fantastic!
The best thing about this product - the smell! Oh my goodness it's just lovely, truly smells like roses. Great as a lip tint, you can build it up really easily from a very subtle pink to red lips. Good as a cheek tint, though I mainly use it as a lip tint. Has great staying power - will be buying this again!
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This did not live up to the hype - I found this product makes very little difference to the look of my face, however it does feel absolutely amazing! My skin has never felt so silky. It minimised my pores a little but not worth it for the price.
Foundations -Coty - Miss Sporty - So Matt mattifying foundation

Miss Sporty so clear concealer is the concealer I will ever need! You can use it over foundation or on its own, it conceals blemishes, bags under your eyes and evens skin tone. It is incredibly cheap and lasts for ages. It also doesn't make the blemish worse - the perfect concealer.
An excellent pencil - 10 Brown/black is the perfect colour, looks really natural, stays on well and I love the brush at the end. Also lasts a really long time!
Not good - makes my eyelashes clump together, the writing on the packaging wears off really quickly. Also not good value. I would not buy this again.
I try to keep my make up looking natural, this product is perfect for that. I use it over the top of mosturiser, it blends really well, and I never need to put powder over the top of it. My skin is usually normal, without blemishes but the winter weather has made it really dry and red. This product conceals the redness wonderfully, you can hardly tell I have horrible ezcema - my family didn't even notice! This product is so easy to use - but the best thing is how natural it looks. It also gives enough coverage to be used as a concealer. Would buy it again!
