I had started to buy higher end foundations but when I saw this advertised I really liked the look of it. I saw it instore yesterday on offer so decided to try it. Its lovely,I got it in the lightest shade ivory and its a great match for my pale skin. It applies like a dream,blends well and covers really nicely. It lasted most of the day and didn't make my skin look oily even tho it does impart a glow. Im really happy I bought this and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try a fresh new foundation without breaking the bank.
WOW this is a beautiful blush thats quite similar but not identical to Macs breezy.Its a gorgeous soft shimmery plum with a touch of gold that looks lovely on any skin type.It applies and blends well and lasts all day on me without a need for touchups. I cant get the past LE blushes in store now but I have found a local market store holder that sells them and I plan on getting rosegold and sunrise too.
I got this whilst it was on offer for £5.99 and I really like it.Its quite a thin texture so applies smoothly and blends really well.I have it in the lightest colour and its a perfect match for my pale skin.It lasts a few hours but does wear off a bit during the day.No biggie tho as most foundations fade a bit.
I do like this brush,its big so applies my foundation very quickly but it doesnt dry for ages after washing and doesnt seem as soft now either.Its expensive but it is good quality and hasnt shed one hair yet.Wouldnt buy again but am pleased I have it,

I got this in a swap after lemming it for ages but not wanting to pay out for the amount it costs. I love it! I have it in the lightest shade and its a very good match,it goes on smoothly and blends well.It can look a tad heavy if I apply too much so I apply in a couple of very thin layers which stops it looking cakey. I like how my skin looks with this on,it looks clear and healthy and covers my redness well.It doesnt sink into my fine lines and doesnt slide off after an hour or two.Would buy if I ever finish this bottle :o)
Im so pleased I finally have this,I got one in a swap a couple of weeks ago and was thrilled.It was used and had the eyeliner but no potion bit I was still really happy.I loved using it,then on monday I noticed Debenhams online had it in stock.I ordered one as I didnt know when they'd be available again and I never wanted to run out of this lovely palette.It came yesterday and its gorgeous new,I got the brush which is lovely and the potion was a welcome addition. Im sure I've not used all the combinations this palette is capable of but I'll have fun trying. Its 10% off at Debenhams online at the mo,I got it for £28 instead of £32 :o)
I got this in my local pound shop in the shade natural ivory.It looked light enough in the bottle but its actually too dark and very orangey.But what I hated the most was the awful smell.Its so strong and lingers forever,also made my eyes smart and water.Wont use it again and deff wouldnt ever buy it again.
I love this palette,I have acid,sparkle and sunset and this new LE palette contains colours not found in the others.I had no other peaches in my collection so had to have this.The colours are so pretty but not as bright as the other palettes so you can create softer looks. As usual sleek give us the plain black packaging,would have loved it to have had the flowers on like the box but never mind it still looks good.

Of course I'll buy this again! Its cheap,I love the squeezy tube..no waste..but best of all it works!! I applied a tiny bit all over my face under my foundation and my makeup looked fresh ALL DAY! I was so pleased as I hate having to touch up.Who would have thought an anti chafing gel would make such an excellant face primer.

I got this to try as it was on offer in superdrug for a fiver.Firstly the bottle looks big but its actualy only 30mls,its like a bottle in a bottle,the container with the primer in is a lot smaller than the outside bottle which it fits into. Its a nice texture,easy to blend and dries instantly.The only bit Im not keen on is it can feel a bit drying but thats probably good if you have oily skin.My foundation goes on smoothly over this,not sure it makes it last a lot longer tho.It doesnt really correct the redness in my skin but for a fiver its a bargain and I would buy again.
I bought this cos it was on offer in Superdrug,something silly like £3.Now I have some expensive foundations in my stash..MAC,Estee Lauder and so on so I dont know why I picked this up.Probably felt like trying it and knowing if I didnt like it I hadnt really wasted my money.I picked the lightest shade fair and bought it home. The shade is excellant! Its a lovely pale neutral shade,no pink or orange undertones.I was amazed at how well it matched my skin.It really did adapt to my face,my skin looked even and well rested but you couldnt see the product. It went on really well,its quite creamy without being thick..blended well and covered any blemishes I had. It lasted a good few hours without oxidizing and even now 8 hours later my skin still looks good.Its worn off a bit but no more than other foundations. Overall a great foundation for a very good price,good shade selections and a squeezy tube so no waste.

I have a few of these and they are fab quality for the money.I have rose pink which is quite vibrant and can be used as a blush as its so pigmented,golden rose which is softer but so pretty on,the pink one which is very pretty and subtle and the light bronzed one which is lovely and glowy.They dont contain loads of glitter,just a soft shimmer and they are so easy to use.As the user below said,they are fantastic value for the money and are very compariable to higher end brands,

RIS and I really like this,its a lovely fresh colour and it applies like a dream.It lasts all day and doesnt go blotchy.Am really pleased with this and am now looking into buying more clinique blushes.
I really hate this,the smell is overpowering,the colours are naff and very pink and it does cake on me after a couple of hours.The smell is actually the main reason I hate this tho,it makes my eyes sting.
