Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

I received this in a set with an eye cream, lip gloss and a smaller version of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Intense. I really didn't think it would be moisturising enough and was more interested in trying the 'intense' version. I have been pleasantly surprised at how this product is working for me. I use it at night after cleansing and toning and it provides the perfect amount of moisture and is not sticky afterwards. I don't feel like I'm wearing moisturiser once it sinks in and I wake up with lovely looking and feeling skin every morning. It also doesn't cause any blemishes which a lot of moisturisers do for me. A nice product but a little pricey. I might purchase again depending on offers Clinique have at the time.
Gels/Soaps -Soap and Glory - Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel

My favourite body wash of all time!!! I have tried MANY other brands including Lush, Clarins, Olay, Palmolive etc etc. Clean on me is not only fun, but smells amazing and is very creamy and moisturising on the body. It is the most beautiful smell. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie

My favourite shade of all the Revlon lip butter shades (and I have tried many). This shade is just the perfect pink for me. Not too dark, not too light and I think it works for all seasons of the year. It is creamy and moisturing and although it doesn't last all day, I still love it. When I sometimes use regular lipsticks, I realise again how lovely the Revlon lip butters really are. If you want a pretty light to medium pink lipstick which is moisturising - look no further!! I am now on my third stick!
I love this palette. I use most of the colours and my favourites are Bootycall (I use this on the inner corner of my eye and as a highlight in my brow arch) and Tease (a great matte crease colour). Most of the colours are very usable and I think the application is smooth and pigmented. I also think the cost is reasonable when you take into account the amount of colours you are getting and their actual size.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus

This is a great skin finishing product after liquid foundation or BB cream. It works well to reduce shine and seal the base. I am now only using it on my t-zone as it made the rest of my face look a little too dry. That being said, you really only need to set oilier areas anyway. I will keep repurchasing this as it is perfect – not too heavy, not too light.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in R.S.V.P.

This is a new favourite for me for cream eyeshadows. I have tried Maybelline’s Color Tattoo range and was not impressed by how dry they were. R.S.V.P by Benefit is the perfect everyday colour base and is also buildable. It goes on very nicely and if you want a more intense colour, wait a minute and add another layer. It is very pretty and I have actually had a few random comments from people asking what shade I am wearing. This does not crease at all on me although I do add a light dusting of a similar shade of powder eyeshadow which may help.
I actually really like this mascara. I recently repurchased it again after using a few other brands and also They're Real by Benefit. I did like They're Real by Benefit however I found it difficult to remove even with the best eye make-up remover. Badgal is the perfect balance between natural and glamourous and I find it quite buildable if you wait about 20 seconds and then add another coat. It is also a dry mascara which I prefer to the wet varieties which tend to be messy and also run more easily.
I adore Hervana! It is such a pretty matte pink and is perfect for everyday make-up for me. It is quite buildable as well if you want more colour pay-off. Love it!
Eyeliner -BeneFit Cosmetics - Magic Ink Liquid Eyeliner

I absolutely love this liquid eyeliner by Benefit!!! It is definitely the best I've ever used. Most other liquid eyeliner's don't have good colour pay-off and don't look very black at all. This goes on black and stays that way all day and the application is easy and smooth. The best part is that if you make a mistake, you only need to used a moist cotton tip and it will be removed easily with no residue or streaking. It also washes off so easily at the end of the day. I have tried many other liquid eyeliner's and they don't compare to this.
