Skin: very pale (nc10 mac, Nars SG Siberia) combination (dry facky patches, oilyness and normal) acne prone and sensitive. The shade i got was 00 alabaster. this is a really good match for my NC10/ Nars SG Siberia skin. Where i use it: Under eye, spots/blemishes, redness The product is in stick for and really creamy. creamier then most other stick concealers. It's easy to blend and smooth out and covers very well. It clings to some flakey bits around my spots sometimes but no that bad. the formula has to be set other wise it will smudge and smear everywhere and crease under the eyes. packaging: the packaging is a small black metal tube. The cap stays securely in place and doesn't come off unless you pull it. It has Bobbi Brown on the side of the tube with the shade on the bottom. I would buy again if i didn't find anything better.
Skin: very pale (nc10 mac, Nars SG Siberia) oily eyelids, green eyes. I bought this after seeing them all over the internet and the shops. I got it in the shade Pebble Grey/ Sultry Smoke. The packaging: The packaging is a small pot with a silver lid on the lid it says the name of the colour on it. On the bottom of the pot you can see the colour of the product. Inside there is a black stopper to keep the product fresh. The product: The claims that it makes are that it lasts upto 12 Hours. personally it doesn't last on its own more than 3 hours but with a primer it lasts 12+ hours. It's smooth and applies evenly, there it also hardly any fall out when you apply it, I apply it with Boots No 7 Blending brush and it blends out great it's so easy to work with. The Colour: The colour is a matte Blue Based mid - dark grey. I will buy this product again its a really nice grey.

The blush is pigmented and applies smoothly and evenly. You only need the lightest of touch for the blush to really show (on my pale skin). The colour of the blush also makes me look healthily and glow i have yellow undertones to my akin and i can look a bit washed out if I don't apply Blush. Longevity: This blush lasts all day on me 12+ hours I would buy this blush again if i every finish it.
Skin: very Pale NC10 maybe Nars SG Siberia combination (dry facky patches, oilyness and normal) acne prone and sensitive. I got this foundation in soft porcelain after reading reviews on Here and looking at swatches after needing a new foundation. The shade: I got this in Soft porcelain and the shade is perfect. The shade is a very light colour with neutral - yellow undertones with no pink. packaging: The packaging is as a plastic jar with filter in it there is also a seal that can open and close i find that don't get any spillage's with this and wish that more powders came with it. The product: The foundation goes on smoothly and evenly and doesn't hight light dry flakey patches of my skin. It's quite fine and it tends to be a bit messy. the finish of the foundation is slightly dewy. The coverage of the product is medium and if very easy and quick to get that coverage. The foundation lasted more than 12 hours with a little bit of movement around by my glasses and it sinks a little in to pores after 12 hours. I have had this for 3 months now and i am half way through the jar. i use this about 5 days a week for 2 months now and a 1-2 days a week be for a month before. So a jar might last 4 - 6 months with daily use. I would buy this again if i didn't come across something better.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL SPF 60 Fluide Extreme
completelyloony 4/24/2012 11:39:00 AM
Skin Combination (dry, flacky, oily and normal) Acne prone and sensitive I live in the UK mostly Rain with very little sun even in summer. I bought this after reading the reviews on here. I wanted something that would protect my very pale skin from the sun if the UK ever got any and to hopefully keep my skin quite pale. I wanted something that was light weight and none greasy that didn't cause more spots and to hopefully help with the red marks left by spots. I got this in SPF 50+ (which is the highest one you can get in the UK) with UVA and UVB protection thats suitable for normal to combination skin Its also water resistant and perfume and paraben free. This sun screen is really good it has very high protection from the sun (nothing completely protects you from the sun unless your inside) It's not greasy or drying (also a bit moisturizing), doesn't cause white face in photos or aggravate my spots. I Have also seen a difference in how my spots heal with this, they seem to heal faster and not leave very red marks on my skin also the existing marks seam to be fading quicker then before. As for it being water resistant I haven't worn it anywhere that it needs to be water resistant only from the the car to the house when its raining and i feel like it holds up well there. I would defiantly buy this again
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow
completelyloony 4/15/2012 8:10:00 AM
Eyes: Oily most things crease on my eyes almost straight away without a primer. I have these in Immortal Charcoal/Audacious Asphalt and Permanent Taupe/Tough as Taupe. I bought these after wanting a grey eyeshadow and reading reviews on theses and thought they looked great. I was only slightly disappointed with the shade range and names that the UK got after seeing the American ones Permanent Taupe in the jar looks like a light to mid cool toned matte brown, when its applied its a lovely matte grey with a bit of brown to it. This shadow applies smoothly and evenly, its easy to blend out. this shadow lasts 12 hours on me with out a primer. after that it creases but fades evenly. Immortal Charcoal in the jar looks like a dark shimmery grey with slight green undertones. this shadow applied looks a deep dark true grey with the shimmer being less noticeable. This shadow is really creamy and easy to blend (easier than PT).It lasts about 8 hours without a primer on me than creases and fades slowly and evenly. this shade is perfect for a one shadow Smokey eye. Other things I have heard people comparing these shadows to Benefit creaseless cream shadows and say that these are similar but Benefit last longer without creasing or fading on me. I would defiantly buy again the quality is amazing.
Mascara -Max Factor - False Lash Effect Waterproof
completelyloony 4/15/2012 7:19:00 AM
Eyes: oily and tend to water a lot. Eyelashes : straight holds no curl what so ever, long not spares but not thick. I bought this mascara a couple of months ago after all my other mascaras failed to hold any sort of curl in my eyelashes. I picked this mascara after i read product reviews and recommendations. This mascara claims to give a false lash effect, i disagree with this because i feel that it gives my eyelashes the look of naturally long and thick eyelashes. This mascara for me holds curl for at least 8 hours with there being only some dropping. After the 8 hours I find that my eyelashes have begun to go straight this happens very slowly thought in a hot environment. The mascara is also waterproof I can say that it's definitely better than some of the other mascaras that i have had but it still smudges slightly through out the day but hold up nicely with water being splashed from the sink or with rain. To remove the mascara isn't difficult like most waterproof mascaras I like to use my face makeup remover and a wet cloth to remove the makeup remover, I then wash my face with cleanser and rinse. If any of the mascara is left then I take nivea eyemakeup remover and a cotton ball and hold the socked cotton ball to the mascara far a few seconds then wipe a way this usually remove all the mascara. I will buy this mascara again or buy another in brown
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
completelyloony 4/11/2012 2:15:00 PM
My eyes are sensitive and water quite a bit. My eye lids are oily. I got zero in a set. I like the pencil it's a soft black colour not to dark and not to light. It lasts a couple of hours on the waterline and fades evenly but it travels all under my eye and makes me look a bit like a panda. it's only minimal On the eyelid i use a primer and this lasts all day its easy to smudge out and doesn't transfer to my crease. Its fairly easy to remove and doesn't stain. I would buy this again as it does what i want it to do but would prefer it to be cheeper as i feel it's not worth the price but overall it's a good product.
Skin: very pale (nc10 mac) combination (dry facky patches, oilyness and normal) acne prone and sensitive. I bought this product after hearing about it from youtube and beauty blogs. The reviews were great so I had to try it. It was very expensive about £30 i personal think that its over priced because it doesn't come with a pump and the cap gets dirty easily, the bottle is thick glass and probably won't break if you travel will it. The colour was great i got Siberia it's described as very fair with neutral undertones. Siberia was a perfect colour for my skin i would describe the undertones as yellow not neutral and very fair probably the palest i've seen thats easy to get hold of. The foundation is meant to be for dry skin, it has a glow it dry but not completely. It has medium build able coverage and not sheer as the name congests. I find that the foundation does have a glow but when it sets it still makes me look dry. It highlights every bump and flakey patch that is on my skin so my face looks flakey and cakey. I find that it doesn't aggravate spots and doesn't break me out. This lasted about six to 8 hours on me. I wasn't doing much only shopping and cleaning. Other problems with the foundation is that it transfers to everything that my face came in to contact with my shirt, phone hands and other people. Its also smudges and smears on to my glasses even the lenses. I won't by this product again because it looks highlights every flakey patch, it's to expensive, it doesn't last long enough on me as well as the smudging and smearing. For me the only positive thing about this foundation is the colour.
I have oily eyelids and watery eyes. The colour is a grey with green and gold its slightly shimmery. The product is great, it stays on all day 8-12 hours and doesn't crease or transfer or move about even without a primer. It blends well and can be layered to get a deep/darker shade. The only problem with it is that it doesn't do well as an eyeliner. I have tried it with angled eyeliner brushes point eyeliner brushes and it doesn't make a difference it just looks bad. I will definitely buy more shades and will buy it again. I have had the product for over a year now and it had only just began to dry up. It's will go on for another couple of months if i add a drop of water to it.
The product smudged within 1 hour after i applied it. it didn't stay on the inner corner of my eye either. The applicator is alright to line the eyelid bit not to do cat eye. overall i was not impressed and will not be buying again.
Lips -Bourjois - Rouge Hi-Tech Water-based liptint [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this lip tint in rose pixel. I was not impressed with the colour, i put a tiny bit on and it turned bright red. It lasted about 10 minutes before it seeped into the corners and were my lips part and faded. I was really not impressed with the product.
