I really like this as it really is a nice product apart from the little chunks it has in it which can sometimes look like dead skin on the lips, apart from that it's really nice as a lip balm not as such a stain. It can be a little tricky to get out of the pan and to actually open it but the good outweighs the bad because it tastes really nice and it smell just like the soap and shower gel.
Eyeliner -Collection 2000 - Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner

I only use this liner for the liner in the bottle as the brush was too fiddly for me. It is a really good liner as it stays on for ages and doesn't budge at all which is amazing for how much it is. I will definitely keep buying it as its so worth the little amount of money that it is.
These are my favourite Kohl Liners as the black is really dark and stays all day in my lash line and the white shade is exactly the same apart from the shade. I will definitely be buying again.
I really love this mascara as it is really good and really cheap. After my past bad experiences with Avon, I wasn't expecting much from this, but after using it my lashes looked curled and lengthened which was a really nice surprise! Now I use this almost all the time for an everyday look, because it looks so amazingly natural.

I used this all the time a couple of months ago now I really don't use it. For the amount of money it costs I could find probably 3 or 4 exactly the same cheaper. I like that it has the classic lipstick taste and smell, and that the texture is really rich and creamy, but the good outweighs the bad because it's too expensive, a very common colour that I could find much cheaper, it sometimes makes my lips look dry and it usually makes my lips actually dry!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This is my one stop shop primer. I tried this and never looked back, it's expensive but definitely worth it. A little goes a long way with this so don't squeeze out to much. I used to have the bottled primer, which looked really cool but didn't really do the job as I could never get out the primer in the bends and bottom. So, I just grabbed a knife and empty eyeshadow pan and filled it up with the rest of the primer, which there was LOADS!! Since then I use the every time I put ANYTHING on my eyes, and I buy the squeezable tube instead of the plastic bottle.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

I really didn't like this liner as it crumbles when I try to remove it, it goes in your eyes really easily, it is really liquidy and its runny. I got this from my book of shadows pallette and I was really excited when I saw how small the brush was and I thought it would be really easy to put on. I was wrong. The bottle/tube get excess liner around the top therefore making it really hard to close and that means mess, over clothes, bedding, surfaces, its terrible.
This is one of my favourite nude shades and Urban Decay shades in lipstick. It is a nice neutral shade with a little bit of gold glitter making it look super girly and feminine. It is really creamy and glossy but surprisingly pigmented at the same time. Also the taste isn't as bad as my other Urban Decay lipsticks so that's also a plus! This lipstick goes pretty much with any look, you can feel the glitter, but to me it doesn't matter. However it doesn't last too long so you will probably need to touch up due to the glossy texture.
Lipstick -Urban Decay - Weapon of Love Lipstick in Trainwreck

I love this lipstick because of how cute the packaging is and how much I love the deep pink shade, and how elegant it looks as well as being vampy. It can be a bit drying and the taste isn't the nicest but I just love the colour so much its all worth it. If your in doubt please swatch it in the shop to make sure you love it just as much as I do!!
I found Gravity to be a very dark red/pink that looked very vampy and great for a night out due to the harshness of the colour, but I have a very pale face. It can also make the teeth look a little yellow even though they aren't, which can be a little annoying. But, there is something about this colour that I love, and makes me smile. However swatch it in the shop before you buy it, just in case.
AC/DC is a very beautiful purple with a reflective effect of blue/purple (blurple) but can be patchy on the eye. I would usually use this as a crease or outer third colour in a smokey eye, as all over the eye would be too over whelming. It has a little bit of subtle shimmer but it is hard to see on the eyes. I would use UDPP under this so it wouldn't be as patchy as it sometimes is. Please swatch in the shop.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

I really like this primer as it does a very good job of filling the pores on and around my nose, stopping oil in my T- Zone and makes it easier for the foundation to cover scars and spots on my face without making them look dry and nastier than they are. I got this as a sample and the first time I used it was when I was on holiday, which unfortunately I had forgotten to pack my face wash so I broke out pretty bad. So, I didn't use this again until a couple of weeks ago and saw the amazing effects again but making sure to get every single last bit of my face before bed, and when I woke up in the morning.... I HADN'T BROKE OUT!! I was so happy I could use this without breaking out so now its a HG product. Just be sure to clean every inch of your face after using though.
Midnight Rodeo is a medium brown with silver glitter in. I usually use this product as a crease and "outer v" shade if I want natural but noticeable definition. To me, this product has more cons than pros, like the sparkle. I just find it goes all over my cheek bones and the shade of glitter doesn't go with the shade of eyeshadow, maybe a gold or warm copper would be better? Also, I could find hundreds of colours exactly like this WITHOUT the glitter for a lot cheaper.
Midnight Cowboy is a light champagne colour with a ton of silver glitter. I really like this colour as a wash over the whole eye, but the disappointing fact is the fallout of glitter all over my face. But this is only (to me) a minor set back as I can just do my face last if I know I'm going to be using this shade. It lasts well (with primer) and looks great on pretty much any skin tone, just swatch it before you buy it, as you might not like it.
I got this lip gloss in my Midnight Emergency kit and I must say its a very nice product. The shade in which I got it in is Midnight Cowboy, which is a sheer nude gloss with gold glitters in it. Even though it has it in it you cant feel any glitter on your lips but you can definitely see it. This product claims it "Cools & Plumps" which in fairness it does a very nice job of, just don't over do it as it might look as if your drooling. It has a sweet minty taste and smell which I absolutely love and as mentioned before has a nice cooling effect instead of a tingly/stinging sensation like some other "plumping" glosses. Personally, I don't bother with "plumping" glosses as my lips are already quite full, so I would not buy this again but to no fault of its own. If you are someone with not so full lips, go to an Urban Decay counter and get an artist to put it on you, this is the only way you can be sure you want to purchase it as it is quite expensive.
