Not loving this at all. I've used this for a number of months and never really been happy with it. The colour match is good, but I don't like how it goes on. Using either a make up brush or fingers to apply, I find it goes on streaky and you really need to closely inspect your face to make sure it's blended well. It also feels quite dry on the skin as you apply it. I did like the matt finish but found it didn't have a lot of staying power, nor did it do much to make my skin tone look very even e.g under eye. As soon as I got my Revlon foundation, the Maybeline went in the bin!
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor in Endless Spice

I'm usually not a wearer of lipstick, so buying this was a bit of a gamble for me, but I've been pleasantly surprised! I really love the colour and the durability is wonderful. This shade is subtle and very complimentary. The only thing I don't like about this product is the way your lips can feel grainy as the day wears on. Obviously if you keep applying the gloss over top it would prevent this, but sometimes life gets in the way of makeup maintenance! On the upside I haven't noticed that my lips look cracked or unevenly coloured because of it - I think it's mainly a texture thing. I will definitely be re-purchasing and overall, am very happy.
Liquid -Revlon - New Complexion Oil Control Makeup

I'm a few days into using this product and so far I'm very impressed. I'm using 03 Sand Beige. I love the runny texture of the foundation - makes it easy to apply and blend. Because of the texture of the liquid it gives you flexibility on what kind of coverage you get. I was wanting something sheer and light to give a very natural look and this fits the bill perfectly. I have combination skin (not what I would class as oily) but so far I haven't had any problems using this foundation even though it is an oil control product.
This is my HG deo. I love the solid texture rather than the roll-on liquids. I can get dressed straight away, it dosen't get all over my clothes and I find that it works really well, not wet patches or odor. I also like the subtle scent. I'm like one of the other reviewers - have a small panic if I run out - as not all our local supermarkets stock it.
I'm using this in Bisque, and while the colour is good, I find it a little bit too sheer (on my freckled face) and leaves my face very slightly shiny, in comparison to Olay which I find more matte. It's not at all greasy or heavy and absorbs fairly easily. But for the price I think I'd prefer something with a little more coverage.
I love this and use it as a blush/cheek contour. It gives me a warm healthy glow rather than looking pinky cheeked. It has lasted really well, but will be repurchasing.
I'm using the version with the cottonseed, and I've found it to be very good. It cleanses well without leaving my skin tight or dry. It doesn't foam a whole bunch, but in saying that it has a kind of creamy/foamy hybrid texture. I also like the gentle fragrance.
I've go this in a GWP sample size and I like it very much. It's a very light, easily absorbed moisturiser which leaves skin feeling hydrated. It's a great base for makeup and I like the soft fragrance. I don't think I'll be purchase a full size, due to budgetary constraints :(
I'm using this in a sample size, and I like it very much. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my skin feeling heavy or greasy (which I usually associate with night cream products). My skin also feels very smooth and hydrated. I don't think I'll be buying a full size when the small one finishes, purely because of the price.
I was given this as a gift, and although I prefer liquid liner, I was really impressed. I like the retractable packaging, but funnily enough have only just discovered the inbuilt sharpener - shows how much I needed it! The product goes on smoothly and has great staying power, doesn't smudge or slide over time. For everyday, casual makeup this is a great choice and I'll definitely be purchasing again when my current one runs out.
Tinted Moisturizer -Olay - Regenerist Touch of Foundation SPF 15

I'm very happy with this one. The colour matches fairly well and I find is easy to blend. I like the consistency, and a little certainly goes a long way. It strikes a good balance between being moisturising and providing a light/smoothing coverage without being too heavy or greasy.
Powder -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup

I have this product in Desert Beige and I love the colour match. The powder goes on smoothly and gives nice sheer cover. My only issue is the longevity. After a 3-4 hours I need to re-apply. I don't think I would re purchase, purely based on the $ vs longevity. I would however, be keen to sample the liquid version.
