I don't get this product... How can something so expensive be so bad.... I feel robbed. Given that there are good reviews of this foundation it must be one of those things that work on some skins and looks amazing and if not it looks really horrible. Unluckily I am on the second category. The problems: It looks heavy and greasy and very un natural. I have tries many techniques and the result is never good. I have to apply a fair bit of powder to set it, but it never seems to really dry. The finish is not silky at all, instead is very patchy sometimes or really mask like if I apply enough to even it out. It doesn't last and goes every where - mainly cos it never seems to dry. The colour, although it matches my tone is greyish and cold, not a flattering shade at all. Again I tried warming it out with bronzer, but it doesn't finish well. The colour mutates! Starting quite greyish and ending up with orangey colour! I am incredibly disappointed an had never had any such bad experience with any foundation, I much rather any Rimmel or any othe deign store brand. And to think the price I have paid for this. I will wb giving it to my mum who has different skin type to see if it may work for her! I would advice that I you want to purchase this foundation you get a sample and try it various times before going for it
Misc Beauty Tools -ModelCo - Turbo Lash Wand Heated Eyelash Curler (New Pink One)

I was on the lookout for something that would actually curl my lashes - I have tried a few mechanical ones and the curl lasts minutes. I cannot believe how well this works!!! I tried today for the first time and my lashes were curled in no time and it has been 15 hours and my lashes are still fully curled up! I have long lashes but they are not curled at all so I really needed something that works and can hold the shape. Can't believe I finally doubt it !! I only used a bit of mascara in brown before curling and the lashes look lovely. Can't wait to try with black mascara and coating them big time - I would say they will like false lashes. I am so happy with this product that the 30 EUR spent are so worth it!
I have recently purchased this concealer and it is really good. I would say the best concealer I have ever had. What I like about it is that it covers dark circles and eye bags unbelievable well while looking very natural. It actually melts in the skin and sets really well with powder. You only need a little amount as it blends really well and it is very creamy. It is also very brightening so you don't need to use a highlighter after I'd you don't want to. The con is the price - at 27 EUR for a tiny tinie pot it is very expensive in my opinion. However, I would repurchase unless I find a better one or one as goos as this one at a cheaper price.
Thank you Make up Alley ladies for recommending this product! I just bought it and used it and I am soooo please with it!! It has an absolutely gorgeous Color and evens out my eyelid colour really well. I wore it with Wedge on the crease and a little bit of Patina in the outer third quarter of the lid and the look was great, natural and brighten up the eyes very nicely. Will definitely repurchase
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

I really like this cream and I use it almost every day - alone for a natural look or under Estée Lauder double wear light for a polished look. What I like about this cream is that it is really moisturising and looks very natural. It adds glow to the skin and although the Light colour looked very pale for me in the bottle, the colour seems to adjust to my skin Color when I put it on and it blends really well. What it doesn't do so well is cover any blemishes or problematic areas, however it does even the skin tone. I have actually bought another bottle to have at han when the current one finishes. This is one of those products I don't want to run out of!

OMG! This product is amazing and for the price... The Packaging- very similar to the Styla lip glazes, the diferente is that this obras a Little sponge in the applicator which doesn't allow as much precision as the Styla brush. This is a minor thing though, it is still a very good applicator. The gloss- the first thing I noticed is how smoth it feels on the lips, it has the feeling of a balm. It has a ery good pay off of colour and an amazing finish - really smooth looking with a lovely rich colour and that lovely gloss finish. It doesn't feel very sticky and has good lasting power - same as most glosses ( with the exception of Bobby brown that lasts or ever), this one doesn't last that long but it is comparable to most glosses. The colour is gorgeous. The price: incredible at 1.50 £ on their website... I will repurchase it again an again without a doubt. Up to now I have been using Styla which are atound 13 £! I can't wait to try other colours.

Amazing and incredible for the price. If they told me this set was 3 times the price I would well believe it. The brushes are amazing, great quality, soft, professional looking and the set contains all you need. I have order some suplicates now given how much I love these brushes. It had to be seen I believe it... Amazing quality for the price
I have used this today for the first time and I really like it. I used it as a cheek highlighter and really did the job beautifully. Also lasted all day! I did notice that if you don't shake it before use you can get a bit of water at the start but that doesnt take away from how nice this product is. I have it in Pink Lemonade

Fantastic brush!! It picks up and applies the product extremely well. It is so soft... It can honestly be compared to MAC brushes which is incredible for the price it costs. The actual brush looks really professional and the size is perfect. Love it! A must have
I got this product free with my e.l.f. Order. I wouldn't have probably bought this product myself as I never use green shadows. What a surprise though... I have only used the two colors on the left and they are amazing!! They create a suttle smokey eye for day time - I used them with MAC Shroom as a highlighter. I can't believe that the cost of these eye shadows is under three euro... If they put them in MAC packaging you would be paying 10 times the price. They are very well pigmented and the catch the light unbelievably well. I found myself catching a sight o my eyes in my car mirror and repeating how amazing the colours are... And for the price...
This brush name should be Blending Heaven! I had heard a lot of good things about t but truly didn't expect it to be so good. It is really soft and it blends by itself with such little effort... Size is perfect for the crease area and the gape of the brush is spot on for the job. Amazing Brush and not a bad price - I got it for under 20 EUR
I Was given a sample of this product and took it with me on a 4 day trip. After using it a couple of days I realised how much I liked it and bought the perfum. It has like a jasmin/ primrose subtle tone to it. It isn't an explosion of smells but just a simple gorgeous sophisticate smell that I want to be related to. I am really loving this perfume and I am so happy that I was given that sample that allowed me to discover it
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I am very impressed with this foundation! I was looking for something that would last all day but didn't look cakey. Having read the reviews here I ventured for this foundation. As people mentioned that it can be hard to blend, I decided to use it on top of my Garnier BB cream and... Ba ba boom! It is perfection! My skin glows and looks so silky! It is true that it does not cover everything, but it does make your skin look so glowey and silky in such natural way! Just one tip, I use a hint of studio fix powder to set it, and it really looks great and last all day
I love this blush! It is a delicate peach with a hint of pink. I was looking for a low key blush to wear to work when I want to look natural and classy and this blush does just that. Although it is very natural looking it does add a glow to the skin and highlights the cheeks. A really great product!!
These are my favourite everyday lip glosses. I have Mulberry and the Live from the Red Carper collection and they are all amazing. I love the silky texture and sultry shine, they just look so classy... They are also quite resistant and not too sticky. I also love the packaging and the applicator is great an allows very good precision. I know when bought one by one they are expensive but if you get then in sets or multipacks they are much better priced.
