LOVE THIS!!!! I bought this because Diane Kruger's character in Inglorius Basterds wore this with Peaches over the top. It looks soooo beautiful like that! On its own it is so pretty and you look so healthy. You literally just swirl your finger over it and pat it on the apples of your cheeks. It will last me soo long and it has great staying power all day. I want some more of the creme blushes now as this one is amazing!
I have this in nw20 and it is perfect for under the eyes!! It makes you look really awake and glowy! Its not great on spots as its a bit too thin and i find i have to use my Benefit Boing concealer. Overall it is a great product for under the eyes and redness and you only need a tiny amount so it will last a long time!
I got a great sample size of this and that lasted me 4 months!!! I am almost out of it and im definately wanting to buy the full size jar. I wouldnt normally pay so much for a moisturiser but this is really lovely and doesnt irritate my skin at all! The scent is really clean and delicate and the consisitency is so light and it literally soaks into the skin. Only a small amount is needed so a big tub will last a good year!
My first MAC lippie!! I wanted a nice pinky nude and the SA suggested this. It looks gorgeous in the tube and the smell is divine!! It is very moistursing andd looks really lovely against my nw20 skintone. Looks very fab/dolly/pam andersonish with a light pink gloss over it...if you like that look, i do!
I use this to line my eyes and as a base for other colours. I have the sharkskin shadestick and this one seems much more smoother and glides on easily. I blend it using a flat stiff brush and that does the trick. it really does make a lovely eye definer for daytime looks!
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This is my first MAC foundation and it doesnt dissapoint. I was wanting something with medium coverage and the SA recommended this saying it will give me a lovely glow. There are a lot of mixed reviews about this and i have only been using it a week so cant comment as well as others but so far i am really impressed with it. It is important to set it with powder though!
Really beautiful colour!! I have a few other MAC shadows and they pale in comparison to this!! It is soooo soft and blendable!
I wanted to try the blushes from MAC and i kept looking at this one so i finally bought it. I am nw20 and one coat gives my cheeks a soft glow, it is buildable so ifyou want it to show up more i would layer it.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Macroviolet
Legs11 12/27/2009 12:27:00 PM
This is my first fluidline and i am really impressed. I have several gel liners and this one feel so different to the others. It is so soft and glides on like a dream. I dont think anyone will struggle applying this! The colour is lovely but you do need to apply 2 coats to get the purple to really show. Staying power is excellent as it doesnt move intil i remove it.
Palettes -Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. II [DISCONTINUED]

I got this onboard and i love it! There are some fab colours and i really love the liners!!! They go on so smoothly and are almost gel like. Im loving the new wand for the primer potion too! There is such a vast array of colours that the amount of looks are endless. I am having so much fun using this palette and so many people have complemented me on my eye make-up. The packaging isnt too bad, id rather have a flip lid and i think the "secret" compartment is pretty pointless. I have looked at it once and thats it. The only really bad thing is midnight cowboy, it always looks so nice in the pan but on its just a chunky glittery mess!
Palettes -Clinique - Travel Exclusive Make-Up Palette
Legs11 12/17/2009 6:22:00 AM
I bought this onboard on a whim as id had some euros changed and wanted to buy something. Its not bad, there are some lovely eye colours and you get a travel mascara which is very nice. The lip colours are lovely and it is really handy if you need to travel light and cant cart lots of make-up around with you.
I bought this on a ferry trip to Bruges and as far as i'm aware you can only buy it onboard. It is inspired by the Gaucho bags and comes in a cute silver bag style package. There are six soft colours which are a dream to blend. The colours have a hint of shimmer and some even have sparkle. They are all easily wearable and you can go subtle for day or more dramatic for night. Over a very pretty palette and i urge anyone to buy it!
Lipstick -Clinique - High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 - In a Nutshell
Legs11 12/17/2009 5:32:00 AM
I picked this up in duty free after hearing about how nice it is. It isnt nice.......it is gorgeous!! A really nice nude colour with a hint of gold sheen. It glides on effortlessly and the staying power is pretty good, it didnt last me 8 hours as it suggests but it lasted all morning and several drinks before i had to reapply. Some nudes make me look washed out but this really enhances the lips. I would definately buy it again!
Powders -Clinique - Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder
Legs11 11/16/2009 6:28:00 AM
I am a freelance make-up artist and i kept reading reviews of this powder. I wanted something that would take away the redness from my clients skin and this seemed to tick all the boxes. It does take away redness but i find it far more effective if the powder is pressed on rather then brushed. I also like to apply it on top of foundation too. The pot is huge and as only a small ammount is needed i cant see me needing to stock up on it for a long time.
I wanted a nice neutral palette for my straight make-ups and this seemed to tick all the boxes. There is a nice selection of colours but the payoff isnt great. They arent very pigmented and take a while to blend but for the price you cant complain and i have done some nice looks with it. It isnt brilliant but it is average and still usable.
