A few months ago I meant to buy the brown gel-eyeliner from Catrice, but I ended up buying black, because all the brown eyeliners had been touched. People had put their fingers into them -_-'. I recieved comments though that a lighter eyeliner would work better for me, because I've got a very pale skin. So, today I ended up in a store that didn't sell Catrice, so I took a look at the Essence-section. I found this 'London Baby' gel-eyeliner. I've just tried it on and the color indeed suits my skin better. It's hard to say what color it is exactly, but I'd say it's brown-greyish. It wasn't too hard to put on, it didn't give me any trouble. It's dry now and I don't feel it at all. I'm curious how long it will last.
I bought Nr. 03 Soft Nude. The color of the concealer fit my skin. Usually I have to go for the lightest color possible, but this one was already quite light. While it worked fine, I wouldn't buy it again. My previous concealer was removed from the stores, so I had to look for something new. My previous concealer was about the same price, but could last for months. This concealer of Essence only lasted for 2 months and I only used it to cover the dark under my eyes and a little acné. So next time I'd go for something that contains more concealer.
I am very satisfied about this shampoo. I also have the conditioner. My hair is naturally a little dry and can last up to 5 days without washing. I use the conditioner on average at 1 of 3 times that I'm washing my hair. In summer I use it a little more often, especially after a day at the beach or the pool. The smell of the shampoo and conditioner is delicious. The smell lasts for several days and just after washing it's not even required to use perfume. The smell itself is great.

I was actually aiming for the brown version, but none of those were untouched, so I bought black. I was looking for this eyeliner especially, because people recommended it to me. I was looking for an eyeliner that would be water-resistant and would stay perfect the entire day. Well, it happened to be a very good recommendation, because it's perfect. I once forgot to remove my make-up before bed and the next morning it was still perfect. Great great eyeliner.
People adviced me to use a bronzer, because I have freckles... So I bought this one. It isn't too expensive and for that reason good for a first shot at using bronzer. The first time I put a bit too much. You only require a little on your brush, else it won't look good on the face. But it's great! Really. For those with a skin like mine, it gives the skin some healthy color.

I never had any experience with primers when I bought this one. I didn't even know about its function. I bought it because it was very cheap and for that matter I felt it was worth a try. Now it is part of my every make-up routine! It really makes the skin feel smooth and perfect. I'd really want to advice others to use this before applying foundation.
