This matte black eye shadow is perfect for lining eyes. I use an angled eye-liner brush and it works like a dream. It's so pigmented and stays on all day - it looks the same at the end of the day as it did when I applied it in the morning. I also occassionally use this on my water line (over normal pencil liner or on its own) and it stays on so well. The only downside is the price but it does last for ages so I can justify it.

The only foundation I have ever re-purchased. I find the finish a bit too dewy for my liking so I apply a pressed powder afterwards and it's fine. I would say this is a medium coverage foundation - it's not great at covering major blemishes but i find that's fine for my skin. It's not great at staying on, but I just touch up with powder once a day and it's great. It doesn't brake me out and it doesn't feel cakey.
I love this nail polish, the colour and effect is gorgeous. However, I do find, like the other OPI glittery polishes that I have, that it easily chips/peels off the nails. As it's so full of glitter it open peels off the nails all in one go, i've tried a base and top coat but unfortunately no luck, which is a shame because I love this polish. I don't find myself reaching for this very often as it has no staying power.
I like this bronzer however I don't find it partiularly amazing. It smells delicious but I don't find that neccessary for a bronzer.. It's kind of orange toned which I find looks quite unnatural and needs to be blended well. I wouldn't repurchase.
This was my first mac lipstick and I have to say I'm highly impressed. I am a great fan of nude lipsticks and this is the best one I have found. Nude lipsticks are very subjective to the wearer, and i find that this one complements my meduim toned skin very well. I love the glossy finish this gives and how sheer it is. My new go-to lipstick.
This is my HG mascara. I have re-purchased this over and over and this is the only mascara I will ever buy. It makes my eyelashes SO volumised and long, I highly reccomend this. However, the only downside is that it dries out quite quickly - this is outweighed by the price.
I had been using the Bourjois "chocolate" bronzer until I recieved this in the BeneFit Boxing Day set. I have to say I MUCH prefer this. I love the fact that this is not shimmer or sparkly and when blended looks completely natural. I don't know how I have survived without this for so long. I especially love the brush that comes with this bronzer as it's the perfect size for application. I would highly reccomend.
