Indianwood is a gorgeous antique gold/bronze colour, it's really warm with yellow and orange undertones The finish is a shimmery metallic that blends really nicely onto the lids, but once it's set, it stays all day. It doesn't smudge at all and has very minimal creasing, if any. I like to wear this colour on it's own, as it's very pigmented, or with a slightly darker colour just in the crease. Love it!
this is the best drugstore-priced bronzer i've found. i have the shade 52 which looks great on my fair/medium skin, but may be too dark in the winter, i'll have to see. the bronzer is matte, with a very small amount of shimmer, but it looks matte on the skin which is very important to me as i use it for contouring! i love how it looks like a bar of chocolate and it smells so good!!!
i love this! it has a gorgeous shimmer but is still sheer and suitable for day looks. also quite buildable. i have it in Glitz, which is a light bronzey brown. looks great as a base or by itself, and lasts all day. i'll definitely by buying more shades
I really did not like this mascara. It didn't curve my lashes as much as using an eyelash curler would, and that is supposed to be the main selling point of this product. It was very thin looking on my lashes, and did not build in thickness at all. Further applications left my lashes looking more spidery. Not even two or three coats gave me enough thickness for my normal day look. No length added. I bought it as it was a good price, but I'll never fall for that again!
This is my favourite concealer ever. It covers all blemishes easily and has good staying power. The 02 medium shade is perfect for me (I have fair but not pale skin). The 01 shade was too white for me, and did not help under eye circles at all. Make sure you definitely get the correct shade because I hated 01 but 02 is amazing. Looks great applied with a brush or just fingers.
I have had this product for over a year and there's still lots left in it! The wax doesn't really shape brows, but it creates a good base for the powder. The powder itself is very pigmented, so fills in the brows really well. I wish the powder was the exact same shade as the wax though. The powder is a little too rich brown, i'd much prefer if it was a slightly duller colour (which looks better on brows). The little brushes and tweezers that come with it are really too small to use, but are helpful if you don't have anything else with you. I usually use an angle brush to apply both the wax and the powder. I feel that if you only use the powder, it doesn't last as long. Using the wax first helps the powder to stick on for longer. I have to say, I do prefer my Rimmel eyebrow pencil in Brown Black for precision and colour. But it's much handier to not have to sharpen a pencil all the time, and this product lasts a lot longer.
After reading lots of good reviews here, i bought it today. It's now my new favourite drugstore-price foundation. It looks darker and more orange in the jar than on your skin. I have it in 103 true ivory, and it looks perfect on my fair (but not pale) skin. It feels like a thick cream but glides onto the skin so smoothly and feels cooling. No cakey look, not shiny. Gives medium coverage, enough to smooth out most blemishes. And a great price!

I use this palette almost every day. It includes perfectly shimmery shades of nude and a rich dark espresso colour. Packaging includes a double sided brush (fluffy side and liner side) and mirror. Looks great!
This gives a very pretty and sexy pink flush. Looks great on pale and fair skin. Might look a bit doll-ish on darker tones. Lasts ages and is worth the price. Sexy packaging and includes a brush
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Airbrush-Effect Dry Mist BODY

best self tan i've ever used at home. i have it in the medium shade, which i recommend for everyone. if you only want a light tan, apply once. a full tan requires two applications. anyone experiencing streakiness is simply not applying it correctly. application of self tan requires practice. the colour is perfect and not orange at all. there is some self tan smell but it's not too strong. my friends all think i get my tan done professionally when i wear this!
i really like this hair dye. i use pure darkest brown 30 on my naturally medium brown roots. the ends of my hair are a much lighter red brown (kinda like megan fox had at some point a few years ago) so i don't dye the ends of my hair. the colour comes out perfectly. very easy to use and my hair looks healthy and shiny afterwards. i've read lots of reviews saying that the brown colours come out black, and that ends of the hair turn out too dark. if you don't want it too dark, go for a slightly lighter shade then you think and leave it in the roots for 10 minutes before applying to the ends.
I have used this in sepia ink (dark brown) and caviar ink (black brown). Caviar ink is the perfect shade! It's pretty much black but has a gorgeous rich brown deepness to the shade. It's easy to apply, a little goes a long way and it lasts all day. No flaking off. Solid colour all day long. No need to set with eye shadow. My favourite eyeliner!
I look for a thickening and volumising mascara, and this product definitely gives me what I want. One coat looks natural, two coats gives you BIG lashes. It's quite a dramatic look. It does tend to clump lashes a little, but careful application gives you the right sort of clump. I've bought this one a few times now. Not a good mascara if you're looking for definition and separation.
Liquid -Max Factor - Xperience Weightless Foundation

I bought this in Beige Linen 50 which matches my skin colour perfectly. It has a dry gel texture, and leaves the skin with minimal shine which can be hidden with a very small amount of powder. I generally look for medium to full coverage, and this really didn't give me the coverage I need. It's definitely a light coverage foundation and it is not very buildable. Definitely gives a no makeup look and there's no cakey look to it. It just didn't cover my blemished areas enough. If you're looking for light coverage, it would be a really great foundation.
