I have mixed feelings about this eyeliner. I do love it but it still smudges onto my upper lid. I have this problem will all pencil eyeliners, but this one holds up better than most. Its staying power is better than most i have tried, and if i use it on my upper lid i do 'fix' it with Benefit She-Laq which holds it well. All in all in lasts a long time and i'm sure with most people it doesn't smudge - maybe i have funny shaped eyelids that make it rub off!?!?. Beautifully easy to apply, doesn't drag like some, and its creamy enough to smudge for the smokey eye look. would definately repurchase but use it more for my lower lash line and use liquid eyeline for the top lid as i find this doesn't smudge.
This product is great for highlighting cheek bones and the eye area. It is definately great quality. The only problem i have is blending it on top of my foundation and making sure it doesn't dry before i've blended it in. I think this is great for a summery, shimmery look, and i often wear it in the day and don't find it 'over the top'. the product lasts well, i'm just not sure that the consistancy is right for me, maybe i should try a powder highligher instead. A little goes a long way and it does last a loooooong time which is great value for money in that sense
Love this blusher for times when i want a bit of a glow to the skin. It applies well, although i use my own blusher brush with it as i find i can control it more than use the wide brush it comes with. The colour is lovely pink, with hints of coral and a lovely highlighting sheen. I find it perks up my skin! I think the lasting power is something that lets it down slightly although some days i don't have to reapply, mostly i do by the evening. All in all a great blush that i use almost on a daily basis. The box it comes in is very pretty but a bit bulky to carry round for touch ups.
This mascara is amazing for thick, falsh looking eyelashes. The formula is quick thick but this makes is great for building up lashes and making them look thick and lush! I have tried countless other mascaras, like benefits, model one, bourjois etc..and i always come back to this one. Its around £10 from uk stores, however you can find it discounted from time to time. It really gives that falsh lash effect, and have had comments in the past asking if i am wear falsies (this is a big compliment!) will keep purchasing this product as its far cheaper than other mascaras and works beautifully! Stays put all day - the only problem is removing at night as its stays so well that it takes a good eye make remover to get it off - i use cliniques 'take the day off' eye make up remover.

This eyeliner is amazing for a highstreet product! it lasts all day and is so easy to apply. The brush is perfect to use and create the sixties flick! the liquid is quite runny but is not diffcult to apply and dries fast so you can get on and apply mascara. Go back to this product time and time again, and its such good value.
This lipstick is the perfect shade for my skin. lovely pink, with a purple hue. this is the perfect lipstick for looking girly and looks great with heavy make up as its not bright but still heavy pigminted. my lips are quite dark so need good coverage to make the pale and this does this trick perfectly! the only drawback is you do need to apply often (like after eating, drinking etc...) but holds up okay otherwise. Will definately be repurchasing once its runs out as its such a great colour and great Mac quality!
This foundation is something i go back to time and time again! I love trying new make up but this foundation is my all time HG. It dries fast so you have to blend quick, but it stays in place all day, i find this better coverage than Mac's pro longwear and i didn't get on with Revlon colourstay at all (shame as its a lot cheaper!). I set this make up with powder, just to take the shine off as i have oily skin, i used to use rimmel stay matte powder for this, but i have i just bought 'hello flawless' from benefit which seems to create a more flawless finish- i only use a little though as it can go a bit heavy otherwise. great foundation for those who want long lasting foundation - and it doesn't oxidise on me - ACE!
