Moisturizers -Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer
Sam1e 10/24/2009 6:24:00 AM
I'm pretty certain this does nothing for my skin, it definately doesn't moisturise my skin at all! it has a horrible menthol smell that irritates my eyes if it gets to close. If anything i think it actually breaks me out more. I really doubt ill be buying this again.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Tinted Lip Conditioner - Petting Pink

I got this from a CCO for like £7, i didnt really have high hopes for it to be honest but i was pleasantly surprised that it actually does moisturise well compared to other lip products which just dry out my lips. It has a really yummy vanilla smell to it which i love! i would say these would make great gifts and i would buy them again.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer

I brought this only because i've been using the neutrogena face wash and it has done wonders for my skin. I do like this moisturiser but it makes my skin sooo oily, my make up barely stays on until the end of the day as it just seems to slide off! even after i take my make up off my face is still oily. I must say it does moisturise well compared to another oil free product i was using and i have noticed that a lot of my red marks from previous breakouts have faded since using this, it also has quite a pleasent sweet smell. Im going to continue to use it and see if my skin stays as clear as it is now!
Im just a sucker for the cute packaging really, but i was pleasently surprised that the balm is actually nice. Its quite a frosty light pink colour quite sheer but still noticeable. Dont love the minty smell tho but what do u expect!
Eye Shadow -Bourjois - Pastel Lumiere - Rose Tentation 34

I actually use this as a blush as it gives that slight golden shine on the top of the cheek. It looks very glittery in the pot but on its not nearly as glittery, very pretty!
The colour of this can be a bit deceiving, it looks like a really light pink but infact its more of lilac pink still an amazing colour but i dont think i can pull it off! Even tho this is a matte, its actually really creamy and go's on smooth,a great lipstick none the less even though i probably wont use it as much as id like!
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Renew & Lift Brightening Powder With Minerals

I have this in 'ivory' & 'true ivory' although ivory isn't really my colour as its far to yellow. Overall a great powder, im sure this product is pretty new. id say gives a good coverage without looking cakey and seems too look quite natural. The colour selection isn't amazing i think there is only about 5 shades and the closet colour for me is still a little off! Also horrible packaging with the mirror and sponge underneath.
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Handy Buki Brush

I was expecting this to be so much softer but its bristles are kind of hard! i only wanted something for blusher as i generally hate flat blusher brushes - although i wouldnt suggest it for blusher after all. Apart from that I do like this brush i would say it would come in handy for a lot of different things just like the name says!
So in the pan this looks totally bright orange! i was scared when the lovely MA suggested this colour for me, as i usually wear pink as im fair. But it looked actually quite a nice flush of peach on! All of there blushes are matte and the packaging is amazing. I would suggest giving them a go.
So i wanted to try a blush other than pink, so as this is a has sooo many great reviews i thought id try it. Well i love it! im quite fair and quite pink so i wasnt sure if a peachy colour would look remotely nice but it really does suit every skin colour, it looks more pinky on me but neither the less its very pretty.
I do like this mascara it definately lengthens lashes i think it is due to the vibration, but its so akward to use as you have to press the button down whilst you use it so it actually vibrates! The formula is actually quite black and a good consistency. I actually got it for just under £10 when its normally £15 in the UK which i think is competely overpriced.
Mascara -Unlisted Brand - Me Me Me - Fat Cat Mascara

This mascara is so cute! not only the packaging is adorable, but the mascara brush is great as well. (Very similar to dior show) I wouldnt say the formula is great but it does give you really full looking lashes.
I have this in 'blushing bride' but i actually use it as a blusher only because i didnt realise it was eye shadow! its a really light matte pink very cute but i cant imagine it as an eyeshadow!
I was expecting this to really great considering the hype. But about the only thing i like about it is the packaging. Its not even that black, it doesnt lengthen lashes THAT much, i dont really like the brush as the bristles are to spaced out. Overall i wouldnt buy it again, there are much better mascaras out there.
I would say this colour is like a burnt pink, its definately not bright! It looks really shimmery and dark pink when you swatch it but when its on the colour is nothing like that and has no shimmer at all. Its nice but i was hoping it would be lighter than what it is. Lasts all day tho and no break outs!
