Powder -Stila - Angel Light Whitening Powder Foundation
Vadzy 5/20/2013 10:05:00 AM
I picked this up in Poundland and it was the Angel Light whitening powder foundation refil, so its just the pan so very little packaging, but Â£1 for a stila product is a bargain so I had to try it. I picked up shade e and use it to set my undereye concealer for which is works perfectly so I'm really happy with the shade. I don't wear foundation so I don't know what this would be like as a foundation, but it works well as a setting powder and I've used to everyday for the past 5-6 months and still not hit pan so theres lots of product! For Â£1 you can't go wrong really.
I'm a big fan of drugstore blushes, and usually don't buy from Bourjois so I was interested to use this blush because of all the great reviews. My biggest disappointment was the pigmentation, this blush hardly shows on my NC42 skin, I have to apply so many layers to even get a wash of colour. Secondly I hate the packaging, the round pot is cute but not practical at all. Maybe this blush isn't suited to my skin tone at all, but I wouldn't rush out to try any more from this line. Save your money and go buy a Sleek blush instead because thats what I will do from now on.
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - MUA - Undressed Palette

This is my ultimate HG eyeshadow palette, the MUA Undressed palette is my favourite palette ever. It is a perfect dupe for the UD Naked palette and for Â£4 its so cheap! It has a brilliant range of colours and can be used for daytime wear and evening wear too. It has a range of shimmery and matte colours which can be used to create a great neutral eye or a smoky nightout look. The colours are pigmented, they have a little fallout but for Â£4 its neglible. MUA are one of my favourite brands at the moment, they have great products but this is by far the best. I buy this palette for all my friends and everyone so far has loved it too. For Â£4 I would reccomend this palette to anyone, go and try it. I have used mine everyday for the last 5 months and love it so much :)
I love Barry M Nail Paints in general for Â£2.99 they're an absolute steal! Barry M- Cappuccino is a gorgeous Taupe Brown, its opaque in two coats and not at all streaky. Its a great formula and dries fast enough. The colour is so sophisticated, its a grey brown which looks great against all skin tones, I always get so many compliments on it. Sometimes the nail paints can be hit and miss with their formulas but I'm so happy I picked this colour up!
Eyeliner -Collection 2000 - EXTREME 24 HOUR FELT TIP LINER

I love doing a simple cat eye and this product makes it so easy! Its affordable, gives a dark line and because of the thick nib its incredibly easy to get a precise line. I will continue to repurchase!
My HG concealer! I use it to conceal dark circles and it works a dream. Its got good coverage and never creases. It stays put all day and the colour match is near perfect for me. I love the consistency, its runny enough to be able to blend easily and flawlessly. My only con is the pump, sometimes you end up dispensing too much which is a bit irritating, however I will continue to repurchase this concealer as its worth every penny!
Bought this after reading all the good reviews and for £5 I thought it was worth a shot. It comes in a small metal tin, like a Vaseline tin, and contains 21g of product which is a lot! It is the best cuticle balm I've ever used and it has left me great skin around my fingers. Its greasy but so moisturising, I'm not a massive fan of the fragrance but not really that bothered by it either. I just put a little on after I've washed my hands and it moisturises so well. I can see this lasting me a very long time and I will definitely repurchase.
A brilliant hand cream, its very moisturising but not greasy. It smells divine! It smells like perfume, I love the scent and it makes my hands feel so soft and smooth. I'm always washing my hands because of my degree so I need something that is very moisturising, and this is great. Have lots of little tubes of it in my room, bag, locker etc great for on the go and will definitely repurchase.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Studio Flawless Concealer Brush

Oh my god! I love this brush! I own lots of eyebrushes from ELF and there brilliant but this one is amazing. I've been looking for a fluffy concealer brush but hadn't found the right one, and ordered this one from the ELF website. It buffs my under eye concealer so beautifully, I want to order backups ASAP. Its sturdy, well made and most of all its so affordable. The best eye brush I own from ELF, i would recomend this to everyone.
I've been using these to remove my make-up for years! And i've never experienced any breakouts of acne in that time. There easy to use, smell nice and don't irritate my eyes or face. They take off make-up great, sometimes its difficult to take off waterproof mascara so I use a little eye-make up remover instead. I also use these to clean my make--up brushes, so quick and easy. And there only a £1 for a pack which is a bargain - I have repurchased over and over :)
As an NC42 with full lips I've never plucked up the courage to wear a bright red lipstick until I was bullied by a friend to try Ruby Woo when I was at the MAC counter. It is the most stunning red lipstick I have ever seen, and whenever I wear it I get so many compliments! Its a bright red that works with all skin tones, I pair it with cherry liner so it doesn't bleed. Its eye-catching and a really true red. It is quite drying so I make sure my lips are hydrated well before applying. I will continue to repurchase this forever most likely. Don't bother looking for a dupe, invest in Ruby Woo, its the best purchase I've made this year.
Lip Treatments -E.L.F. - Therapeutic Conditioning Balm-Vanilla Creme

I love this product so so much! Its so moisturising and hydrating, it feels so smooth when applied on the lips too. I wear this every night before I go to bed and when I wake up my lips are soft and healthy. Yes it does leave a white sheen on the lips so I wouldn't wear this in public, but because its so hydrating using it before bedtime is perfect for me. I've already purchased a back-up and bought another for my sister, everyone should try it!
I have this in perfect plum which is such a nice colour for the autumn and winter time. I love Sleek products and this is no exception. I haven't ever experienced a weird taste, I don't think it tastes of anything? It is pigmented and I just use a lipbrush to apply it. Its my everyday colour at the moment, it gives a gorgeous deep rosy flush to the lips and looks good on all skintones. I would repurchase because its glossy and a gorgeous colour, would like it if it came in a tube instead.
Such a unique gorgeous blush colour, its so lovely. It comes in very expensive looking packaging and is very compact. Its pigmented and looks natural when applied, will definitely repurchase!
I love love love this product! I now own 3 colours, Mink ( a mauve pink), Port ( a dark fuschia) and Pin Up (a deep red.) I love the formula, you need the tiniest amount on your lip brush and its so pigmented that you can cover all your lips with such little product. I love the small size, it fits easily inside my handbag if I need a touch up but usually it lasts all day. I sometimes mix the red and fuschia to make a darker colour, there so easy to mix and apply. I am definitely going to buy all the other colours, I don't know how good of a dupe they are for the Lip tars but as far as I'm concerned these are great. And sleek is bringing out such great products!
