Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

ADORE. I have the shade 'medium' and it fits my skintone perfectly- its basically my skintone actually. It smells lovely. I only need a little bit to cover my whole face. It covers really well and give your face a nice healthy sheen. People have asked me how I make my skin looks so good whilst wearing this,so that's a fact I know it looks good to others too! I will forever repurchase.
Really Love this eye palette, it's my everyday go-to for eyeshadow. I barely ever wear eyeshadow for school but if I do- its with this palette because it's so easy to make a lovely eye. The shadows are very pigmented and last a long time, very pigmented. I have not always used a primer with this and the shadows do not budge. I really love to mix 'Silk Teddy' & 'Nude Beach' for an all over lid colour. Highly recommend.
This was an ok cleanser- I had a few samples and used them for two weeks. The smell of this cleanser is hideous- it makes me feel sick actually and is quite off-putting while trying to rub into your face. It is annoying to get off too as because a thick paste whilst in contact with skin and water. It makes your skin smooth and somewhat brightened but for the price,I feel like I can get the same for alot cheaper and ones with a more attractive smell.
I have gone through about 8 tubs of this...it's amazing. my best friend. It can be used on anything basically...I have used it to soothe burns or insect bites and it's brilliant for that. My FAVOURITE thing to use it for is zits though...if I have a pimple thats under the skin...you know those painful red ones? dab a blob of this on before i go to bed & next morning...my spot is reduced to less than half the size,redness is gone down and pain too,and by the next day...gone completely. It is the best spot treatment i've ever tried. It does say on the tub that it helps for acne..and I rmber years ago when I saw my brother using it for his spot and thought...thats a nappy rash cream or something...but nope,it clears up your skin. FOREVER repurchase.
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

I use this everyday as the final step in my everyday makeup routine- I dunno what this magical white powder does but my face just doens't look or feel complete without it, it makes my skin look flawless, matte & keeps my makeup on. I will always repurchase. The packaging is the only downside as it is so large and can get very messy,but for the price, it's fine.
My favourite everyday blush- It looks like a bright barbie-like pink in the packaging but on the cheeks once applied with a light hand it gives you a gorgeous flush. It is very pigmented and you only need a small dab for each cheek. I use it everyday, the lasting power is great, great colour and just a generally great product. I will repurchase again and again an am going to try more of the E.L.F studio blushes!
Lip Gloss -NYX - Luscious Lip Palette in The Nudes-Matte
Vanessaaxox 8/12/2011 3:21:00 AM
This looks terrible on any Olive skinned girls- The only colour that looks sort of decent is the crimson pinkish red, the rest are too nude/light. The lipgloss is also really waxy and hard to apply without a brush. dissapointed.
I usually buy the Simple Makeup Wipes and I swear by them... but I went these happen to be on offer at my local drugstore so I decided to pick them up and i'm SO glad I did...I gotta be honest- i wasn't expecting much, i adore johnson's facial products because they are so soft and moisturizing which is good for cleansers and creams but for makeup wipes you need something thats gentle but not too gentle and will remove your makeup...and these do just that, remove all traces of makeup but not stinging to the eye or anything. Love these, even on regular price they are cheaper than the simple ones so I will forever repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single - Sugar #250

Mine was not very pigmented and I had to apply tons - i bought this purely for my inner corner highlight and was dissapointed....reading all the reviews i figure it would be amazing but it doesn't last and i have to apply loads. Gonna stick with Mac ricepaper.
I have gone through about 3 of these- I am not very good at lining my upper lash line with a thin line but with this I am. The tip is so thin that you can make an easy sweeped line. I think it's a good price and the lasting power is decent.
If I could only have one blush for the rest of my life...It would be this one. I use it everyday and take it when I travel. The thing I love about it is that it doubles up as a blush & a bronzer- the blush is the peachy color and the bronzer is the slight shimmer/bronzy colour. I sweep this over my face and it just instanlty makes me look glowing and fresh. LOVE, I will forever repurchase.
I have light olive skintone and I thought/got told this would be an amazing bronzer... NO, i dunno why as it is very pigmented but it just does not show up on my skin unless i add tons and tons. Sucks as I know many people rave about this- just wasn't for me. I regret buying it but I do still use it every now and then.
TERRIBLE, my hair has been feeling really dry and brittle at the ends so i decided to buy a conditioner aimed at restoring moisture and hydration- I usually love Herbal Essences products so picked this up. I have used it 3 times and its terrible, After the first use I was going to give it to my brother but decided to give it another go.....and then another, and now ive given to my brother as he doesn't care what he uses. dissapointed.
