Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - Benefit Ultra Shine Lipgloss - Spiked Punch

I bought this lip gloss with the coralista blusher and I absolutely love it! There was a time I was only wearing clear lip gloss because bright colors were not really my thing, but this lip gloss has a nice color to it, and feels lovely on my lips. The price is quite a lot for a lip gloss (£14.50 from Debenhams) but it is my HG lip gloss at the moment. The texture is nice not too sticky but a nice amount to the lip gloss. The smell of the lip gloss is really nice a fruity and actually tastes really nice as well (I donít try eating it though) I really like the packaging, and what I also like about this lipgloss is that you can make it as bright as you want. I have uploaded a photo of me with this lip gloss on (the second picture) and you can see it looks quite light on my lips, but that is only because I choose to have it that light! It can be a lot brighter! I would definitely recommend this lipgloss! It goes absolutely fantasticly with the coralista benefit blusher! xx

My Absolute favorite fragrance! I cant describe the smell buts its gorgeous! I originally bought this fake in Turkey (I believe they water it down or something) and loved it so much but wanted to buy the genuine product from boots, tried it and I loved that even more! x
Toners -Boots - No7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Toner
Tenerifebeauty 10/5/2011 11:18:00 AM
I have been using wipes to clean my face for AGGGESS!! In fact I had been using the Johnsons baby wipes to clean my face ever since I started wearing makeup (if itís good for a babyís bum itís got to be good for your face! Right?) But I turned 22 years old this year and felt that I really should start looking after my skin properly. So I went into Boots and looked at some of the counterís.. I headed for No.7 knowing that they are one up from the drugstore cheapy things, but not quite Lancome, Clinique .. So I told the lady of my quest to look after my skin and she recommended this No7 Beautifully balanced as my skin is combination. I went away with the whole set and really like this product. I think the amount you get for the price is fantastic.. and the toner makes me feel really clean and satisfied I when I sleep I feel one those women on those adverts that always have luxurious skin. Donít get me wrong when I am lazy I will always go back to johnsons baby wipes, but for the time being I am loving this product!
I have tried this stuff 2.. along with the whole kit (shampoo and conditioner) and my hair has grown longer and is in a lot better condition!
Eye Makeup Remover -Boots - No7 Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover
Tenerifebeauty 10/5/2011 10:44:00 AM
Love this eye makeup remover, I have just got out of the bad habit of taking all my makeup off with a wipe and bought a whole regime from No7 and I got to say I do love their stuff. I use this to remove all my eye makeup (Believe me I wear a lot, eyebrow wax, eyebrow powder, eye shadow (natural) Eyeliner (darkest you can get) and mascara (Benefit Theyíre real) so yeah that is quite a lot, and this remover is gentle and doesnít sting my eyes (like I have found with previous make up removers) the mascara and make up comes of nicely! And the price is good £7.75 from boots which I think is a fantastic price for the quantity you get. My HG eye makeup remover for sure!
Eye Shadow -Bourjois - Eyeshadow Trio - Les Bruns Cuivre 41

OMG.. this eye shadow takes me back to my teenage days in high school, I am 22 now, but I remember when I was 14 years old working in a hairdressers as a Saturday girl, and buying this with my tiny little £20 note that I used to earn back in those days. I bought this shade because it was perfect for school, and I can remember how excited I was Ö makes my heart melt a little bit. The colours were lovely and natural for my school day look. I remember being on my break and putting this on in the girls toilets Perfect for school/work look
This foundation made me break out like mad! Definitely donít think it is for oily/combination skin.. I think my skin has its own mind and pretty much will not allow me to try cheap crap!
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
Tenerifebeauty 10/4/2011 11:57:00 AM
I love this primer, as I hate looking like I have loads of giant holes on my face, and I donít know why but when I put this primer on it stops my makes up from looking like I shot it on my face. My skin looks smooth and matte, and tbh I get withdrawal symptons if I donít have this particular item in my make up bag! It doesnít break me out either
I am the benefit queen! So much then I walk over to the benefit counter in Debenhams they are beginning to remember my name! Now I am also obsessed with plumpers! I went into benefit and asked them for something that would plump my lips and was sold this. It did not plump my lips, it is more of a primer before putting lipstick/lipliner on. I was very upset with being sold this product as I paid money for it and it did not do what it said it didnít on the tube! PLUMP!! If you want a good lip plumper hold your pennies or cents and buy the Lipfusion XL! Best product out there at the moment for lip plumping! And I have tried them all!
After using cheap concealers from the likes of Bourjois, Rimmel and No.7 I thought that concealers must just not do their job. My skin is quite good but from time to time I do get a boil on my chin. They are annoying because they are hard to cover up. I got fed up and after reading the reviews on MUA took the plunge and bought the concealer of eBayÖ as if I am paying loads of money for a pot of concealer? NAH-UH!!! I received the concealer quite quickly and tested it on on a big beautiful boil on my chin and voila it went! I was very happy! I hate concealers that donít cover up spots and actually make the spot look worse than before! But this didnít do that is covered up quite well and stayed all day.. and best of all.. it didnít make me break out even worse than before like normal concealers! HG Product!
I love this blusher, period. Why? Well basically because I used to wear Bobbi brown shimmer brick in bronze and never touched a pink blusher beforeÖ because I was scared I might achieve the Ďoh hey look at me Iíve just been smacked around the face lookí LOL!! I walked into Debenhams and thought hey Iím bored and on my lunch break I am going to get the nice benefit lady to put some make up on me (this was on my lunch break by the way) so I asked her to put a foundation & blusher on. When she pulled out a pinky/peachy blusher I probably gave her a look of murder. She explained to me that people with olive skin tend to suit coral colors. So I allowed her to sweep this blushed over my cheeks and prepared myself for the outcome of looking like a punched strawberry, but to my surprise I absolutely loved it, It was very subtle and looks absolutely gorgeous. I cant explain it, this just made my face look like I was glowing, and I bought this with the matching ĎSpiked punchí lip-gloss from benefit and I am a very happy lady. I would definitely recommend this product.
I love this product so much, I have an absolute obsession with mascara! TBH my addiction is eyeliner & mascara and lip plumperís! I really do believe long eyelashes defined eye and luscious plump lips are just mind blowing (think Angelina Jolie) So this mascara is just perfect, there are only 3 mascaras that I will reach out and buy again.. Sexy curves by rimmel, Line effect by Bourjois and then this one .. but this one wins by 1000000. I have quite long eyelashes anyway and they curl quite nice and naturally.. but my issue is that I want a mascara that will makes them look longer without looking like I have tortured some poor spider and pulled out its legs and stuck them to my eyelashes. Lets face it girlies lap over lap of mascara on your eyelashes just look terrible, I think that picture above (the last one) is a prime example! This mascara looks clean and dramatic, its not clumpy at all and I always get compliments when wearing this mascara (which I love) The mascara has AMAZING holding powerÖ have you ever had that problem where you put mascara on and your eyelashes look lush, but 5 minutes down the line they are flat again, well that will not happen with this mascara!! Only issue with this mascara is that it is £18.50 which is a lot for a mascara but it is sooo worth it! BUY IT NOW!! BUY BUY BUY!!
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One
Tenerifebeauty 10/4/2011 10:49:00 AM
I like this product, it feels good on my skin :). The only issue that I have with it is that it can make my skin look a little greasy if I dont set it with setting powder and also I do need to conceal my spots obviously :) but overall good product. I find the colour matches my skin tone (medium) I havent broken out and it does last quite a long time I dont have to do any touch ups. My only thing is I wish I could get a bigger bottle! My mum keeps using this and soon it will run out if she doesnt get her mits off!! LOL xx
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion
Tenerifebeauty 9/29/2011 7:35:00 AM
I honestly do not know what I am going to do when my pencil runs out, I am going to have to re stock on this quite a lot! I have used the Stila Kajal eyeliner which used to be my favouriteÖIt was the darkest I had seen but soooo freaking messy! So I bought this one on ebay and it is fantastic! I love it! It is very dark, and I put it on at 7:30am this morning and its 12:30pm and the eyeliner has not moved one smidge! (on the waterline) I think this is impressive because most of the eyelinerís I have bought that have declared they stay put actually donít (i.e YSL!!) and go into the creases to make me look like a weirdo! I tried this eyeliner yesterday as well.. put it on at work around 11:30am and took it off at midnight and it had stayed on.. I didnít even have to reapply! Obviously it went the tiniest little bit messy towards midnight but this is after nearly 12 hours wearing itÖ this is the result I would normally get after having a normal eyeliner on for an hour! I paid nearly £18 pounds for it on ebay.. which I am sure is quite a lot for an eyeliner but I did not want to buy the whole set! And the blackness of the eyeliner is incredible puts onyx to shame
This is my second favorite lip plumper, with Lipfusion XL being my absolute must have lip plumper, urban decay blow is my 2nd one to go to though out the day. Why? Well.. :- Unlike most lip plumperís that make your lips go a horrible red color from irritation, this is a nude pink lip plumper and I personally find it doesnít cause much irritation (which I like) I absolutely love the smell of this lip plumper! I cant really describe it if I am honest but it is heavenly and the lip plumper does what is says it does! The price is a lot cheaper than the Lipfusion XL (even though I bought it for £5 off eBay so I donít know what the price is in high end stores.
