I absolutely love Bobbi Brown correctors, I have medium to dark bisque and peach. They work wonders for my genetic under eye circles and I wear them almost every day. The product also lasts quite a long time! Definitely HG.
My new HG foundation, I absolutely adore it! Disappears onto my skin. Light - medium coverage, which is great for my skin as it doesn't have many imperfections. I have combination skin, and this foundation doesn't make me oily, even when I don't set with powder. Makes my skin glow. It also feels amazing on, and I quite like the smell. I suggest all of you girls give it a try! Also was able to find a shade that holds true to my NC40 skin tone. Very Happy!
This is my HG setting powder. Is completely translucent on me if I am careful to apply it properly, and if by chance it does go on white - it can be easily buffed out with the swipe of a brush. Sets makeup amazingly! I use it to set Bobbi Brown concealer, Lancome Teint Miracle, and mac foundations generally. Also like the packaging. Absolutely adore this product!!
I have the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in Copper Diamond (limited edition). I absolutely love it! Looks beautiful on my NC40/42 skin tone. It is a very versatile product! Adds a certain something to my face. The only negative I could find was that if you aren't careful, you can end up looking quite glittery (which isn't suitable in all situations). I would definitely buy again!
Love this fragrance so much! It has become my HG! Absolutely adore the scent, but I wouldn't recommend it for those who do not like to be noticed!
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Lucas' Papaw Ointment

Amazing lip balm/conditioner! Nothing has the same effect on my lips as this does. Keeps them soft and moisturized, even in the middle of winter! Also great to have handy for scratches, bites, burns etc. Have one at home, one in my handbag, at work and even in my car! Love!
I have this eyeshadow in quite a few colours, my favourites being tempting teal and pink innocence. I love them! The colour payoff is great, and they go on easily, and stay on (with an eyeshadow primer). Great value for the price. Also the packaging is quite sturdy, I have dropped them quite a few times (as I am QUITE clumsy), and the packaging hasn't broken, and the eyeshadow has not crumbled or cracked!
Blush -Maybelline - Expert Wear Blush - dusty rose

It is a really pretty colour, but I was given this blush by a friend and it just doesn't show up on my dark skin - NC40/42. The blush isn't pigmented enough. I do sometimes use it as a highlighter though, when I want a bit of shimmer. It has also crumbled and broken inside its packaging.
Great palette! Love the colours, great colour payoff - the same as all NYX eyeshadows! Used this palette to create a few looks now. Colours work great with my NC40/42 skin tone. Great value for the price as well.
I absolutely love NYX jumbo eye pencils. Iced Mocha was my first colour, and is still one of my favourites. It compliments my skin tone NC40/42, and as I wear neutral and natural colours most days, works perfectly. Glides on easily, doesn't pull at the skin. Great as a liner, or as a base! I now have nearly all the colours available!
Absolutely love this blush! HG! Looks really natural on my NC40/42 skin tone. No shimmer, which I love. Is easy to blend. I wear this blush almost everyday. It is also a blush that matches most looks. Highly recommend this blush for all you beautiful ladies with darker skin tones!
Love this blush! Gives a beautiful colour without adding lots of shimmer! Definitely one of my favourites in my wide range of mac blushes! Use this one almost everyday. I am nc42 for reference.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

Definitely my favourite eyeliner! I use it almost every single day. Stays on and doesn't smudge. Great colour payoff. Goes on smoothly! It also lasts forever. Definitely one of my staples, and a product I definitely could not live without.
Love the design of the packaging. Goes on smoothly. It isn't really good just as a liner as it smudges quite a lot, I do use it quite a lot when I am doing a smoky eye (either as a base/smudged eyeliner). It also doesn't really have staying power. Do still like it though...maybe I just have a little weak spot for benefit products.
Great value, great product. I love benefit products, and this one does not disappoint. The shades in this kit were my staple smoky eye shades for a while. Great for beginners! The only reason I wouldn't purchase this again is because it was a gift, and I have found similar shades that are not in a kit - still a great product though!
