This is the best liquid eyeliner I've tried. The foam applicator makes it really easy to apply and it stays on for a really long time. I tend to save it for nights out as it makes me look a bit too made up during the day. From what I remember it was fairly priced, I'll definitely buy it again!
I really wanted to like this foundation but there were just waaaay too many problems with it. First of all, the coverage is so sheer it's more like a tinted moisturiser than a foundation. Secondly, it really highlighted dry patches. Also, and perhaps this is the most important point of all, it doesn't match my skin tone! I have it in the lightest shade and it still goes on slightly orange! There's no way I'll even use this up, nevermind buy it again.
Overally, this is a fairly good blush. I have it in 62 Rosewood. It's good for everyday wear as it's not too bold a colour or too shimmery. The only problem I have is that you have to put quite a bit on to actually see any colour! Also; what's with the rubbishy little brush it comes with?!
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

I bought this powder in 001 transparent, however, it does have a tendency to make my already pale skin look a bit ghostly. To actually 'stay matte' I have to reapply it a couple of times a day. It doesn't make me break out, which is always a bonus. Other than that, it's just your average, typical pressed powder. I'll use it up, but I'm unsure whether I'll buy it again.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Lift-Up [DISCONTINUED]

One of my friends gave me this mascara after she'd tried it a couple of times because she didn't like it. I, however, LOVED it. It gave a lot of volume and made my lashes look pretty long. I've just finished the tube and I'd definitely buy it again!
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003

This is definitely one of the worst mascaras I've ever tried. It doesn't give any volume, length or curl. It doesn't separate my lashes at all well so I end up looking like I have spider's legs for eyelashes! There's no way I'd buy this mascara again...I'm just glad it wasn't ridiculously expensive!
