Lipstick -The Body Shop - Colourglide Lip Colour - 06 Clover Pink

A wonderful shade of pinky brown nude. Fab with or without a nude liner. Love the sort of apricotty smell, slightly waxy long wearing texture. Feels moisturising on the lip.

Fantastic colour one of the best nudes on the market, not long wearing but makes up for this with lack of stickiness. Love the insanely minty flavouring.

A wonderful peachy pinky beige leans more peach though. Wonderful applied over a nude liner and best applied with a lipbrush - the forumla is very soft and hard to apply from the bullet so the brush really helps achieve a light smooth layer of product. Does last for hours even with a gloss on top. Love this.
Lip Liners -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lipliner in Toast 25
Shanplum 4/22/2013 6:55:00 AM
wonderful liner for the price the perfect peachy pinky beige - don't be fooled by the names - toast is a lovely neutral the nude is too orangey on me.
A gorgeous palette, the shades are easy to blend and last all day even without a decent primer which is very rare on my oily lids. Lovely muted tones which work together for lovely pairings - warm, cool tones, no particularly glittery shades and good basic black and browns. My only preference would to be to drop the shimmery pink/gold/white tones and replace with more satin/finish light ivory and beiges and this would be perfect.

One of the best lipliners I have ever tried, long wearing - a beautiful slightly pink/mauve beige a gorgeous beautiful shade which makes your lips look perfect with no horrible orangey-ness. I have stocked up while I can still get them.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Hask - Argan Oil

The only product I have found which is comparable to the original Moroccan Oil - I love both products but will take this one any day as it is incredibly cheap and in my opinion gives the same result. The only difference is this doesnt have the lovely musky incensey scent of the original this is a little more like an orange oil type of fragrance but is lovely none-theless.
A great lipbalm for the price, not too greasy, nice peppermint minty tingle without being drying or irritating. Does what it should for a good price. Too bad these aren't available in my country but I can always buy online.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze in 512 Timeless Nude
Shanplum 4/7/2013 2:02:00 AM
Wonderful satiny smooth lipcolor in a beautful muted rosy nude beige tone. Don't go into purchasing this expecting a high shine gloss - you can't apply it thickly and it needs to be applied in a thin smooth layer over your liner and wears as more of a satin finish slightly matte classic nude lip. It actually provides a really moisturising protective barrier to the lips as it locks in existing moisture, I personally love the pina-colada mixed with old time lipstick smell, I find it charming but those who dislike fragrances beware. I give this a 4/5 for the shade alone. Gorgeous
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Charm
Shanplum 4/7/2013 1:59:00 AM
this burns and peels my lips like nothing else I don't think it's the peppermint flavour that does it though, more like the stain it leaves afterwards the dye seems to dry out my lips just like the Just bitten markers did. I don't really care for the shade it gives either, the range is quite limited for neutrals as most are pinks plums and reds, the initial color is similar to Lip Butter in creamsicle a pale milky orangey nude pink and within minutes turns more neon peachy and the stain it leaves is a bright pink which doesn't look attractive on me at all. Neat concept just not a great product. Highly irritating on the lip couldn't wait to remove.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Totally Toffee
Shanplum 4/5/2013 3:45:00 AM
A fantastic mauve based browned pale nude - think Loreal fairest nude but browner/a tad warmer in shade/texture also highly similar to my fave MAC lipstick brave new bronze, but mostly similiar to my fave Avon ultra color rich lipstick in the discontinued shade Latte which I have been trying to replace for months. Love the texture smooth satiny and long wearing with lovely vanilla scent. A great quality widely available (think local supermarket) cheap lipstick option for those looking for a go to nude.
Eye Shadow -New York Color - Metro Quartet-The Best of Broadway

A great natural yet smokey look in one palette. Not top quality but does the job especially when layered over a cream base and some dark pencil. Good to throw in the bag without the worry of breaking an expensive palette.
Blush -New York Color - Powder Blush In Park Avenue Plum
Shanplum 3/30/2013 7:54:00 PM
Lovely slightly terracotta pink brown (very similar to Mary Kay's sunny spice and Revlons Toast of New york blush) not at all plum as the name suggests. A very safe option for those with super pale skin like me who are afraid of overapplying or want to tone down the cheeks. Doubt this would show up on a medium complexion but on me it is lovely but I do have to layer quite a few times. A nice cheap blush option but definitely not top quality - you get what you pay for.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Single - Antique Jade
Shanplum 3/30/2013 7:52:00 PM
A dead ringer for MAC humid though maybe just a tad less yellow than humid. Great applied over black shadows and liners for a night time look. too glimmery for me for the day time but I feel the same about humid. Get this instead and save your $
Blush -Maybelline - expert wear new formula apricot flush
Shanplum 3/30/2013 7:50:00 PM
Fantastic glowy apricot blush. Surprisingly pigmented for Maybelline - most of their blushes don't show up even on my pale super white skin. Looks highly metallic in the pan but is more of a sheeny glow on the skin. Wouldn't recommend if you have huge pores, but lends a lovely glow indeed. Reminds me of an old Estee Lauder blush I had as a teenager. Great summer glow for those who want to look more peachy as opposed to bronzy (bronzer just doesn't work for me).
