Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

WOW. in my top ten products of all time!!!! without this for me there is no point in wearing eyeshadow as it will disappear or become an oily slick. one swipe of this on each eye lightly mattifies it and leaves a smooth base to layer any eyeshadow or cream shadow on, which always looks perfect now!! cant reccomend enough basically!
Treatments -Ren - Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask

makes me break out in an angry whiteheads! i get the brightening effect, however it lasts for a day MAX, and the sore pimples that are left for the week are not worth it. overpriced, too! have tried a lot from the REN line now as i won quite a few products. all seem disappointing :( more hype over results, as per
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
emma1995 5/6/2013 4:53:00 PM
smears AWFULLY on me. for those with oily lids i wouldnt go there. i have both mac and bobbi brown gel liner which dont smugde with a primer :) but this.. with a primer smugdes like hell! all around my eyes like a racoon. and after it smears it flakes! ended throwing it out
i have the shade Natural. NOTHING about this colour is natural! its so unbelievably orange, not even an fake tan orange, like a burnt red terracotta orange. the formula is good but i just cant imagine anyone suiting this,at all. have no use for it at all, no matter how little product i use..
Makeup Brushes -Shu Uemura - Wool Brush #20 (Pony)

i used to use a real technique brush for blushes and bronzer, and always thought it was the product that was a bit 'meh' because it didnt sit right or blend or come out as pigmented. then i picked up this brush... its so soft, when putting on nars laguna it glides across and somehow blends but keeps the colour, and it seems to just follow the natural contour of your face. a teeny dab into your product and the brush PICKS IT UP and transfers it all to your face, which is a good thing, it doesnt just build up product on the brush but actually does it job. so so amazing! felt like being sick when i bought it but i have NO REGRETS! amazing quality
Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation
emma1995 1/20/2013 6:49:00 AM
really amazing foundation, have tried many from chanel mac revlon nars and this is one of the best, and including the other healthy mix foundation which is outstanding. the coverage is light-medium and its so smooth and creamy, it glides on and doesnt sit in pores. they are mostly yellow toned but not overly so.. but this is so flattering, healthiest glow ever! lasts for about 6 hours i would say, without primer or powder. really, really reccommend if you want a light-medium glowing moisturizing foundation
Tinted Moisturizer -Jouer - luminizing moisture tint
emma1995 6/7/2012 8:18:00 AM
I have the shade golden and its perfect for my NC25 skin, its like a glow from within. it evens and covers slightly, but gives a really gorgeous dewy finish and kinda makes it look like you've been at the beach all day and have been sunkissed. It is slightly shimmering, but i then put my normal foundation down my t-zone and i'm left wth the perfect amount of glow on my cheeks and forehead etc. i would purchase again, and reccomend people to try! you can buy samples of it.
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure
emma1995 6/6/2012 12:02:00 PM
i dropped all expensive products full of chemical nasties and went for the natural stuff. my skin was oily, red, congested, full of blackheads/whiteheads and i was breaking out regularly. I'm 17 so i thought that was just my teenage bad skin phase, but then i did research actually about what benefits my skin. as a moisturizer i use a mixture of pure jojoba oil & cocunut oil. the word 'oil' freaked me out but the results are like no other (google both or just look on makeup alley). i tone with lemon juice and i use a clay mask once a week. My skin is now normal, i have no spots or scars, i breakout about once a month but only very little, my skin tone is completely even & i dont need to wear foundation anymore (but i do anyway sometimes). amazing results.. not just on skin. try or nourishing hair, dry skin patches, makeup remover etc
I hated this! I've had three bottles and tried, and tried, to make it work but it doesnt. My greasy hair only clumps, and has an ashy cast. It feels disgusting, and is itchy! My friends say the same. Wouldnt reccomend.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)
emma1995 4/9/2012 2:37:00 PM
ok, I dont even know where to start. 1) hair. OH MY GOD. I've tried all the morrocan and the mythic and the macadamia and the kerastase treatments and the redken soft and all that and nothing compares to coconut oil. its the only oil that enters the moisture shaft in your hair so instead of just COVERING IT with crap, it really does moisturize! sleep over night with this in and shampoo it out and its a dream, really. my hair grows 10x faster with this in. 2) hair growth! as i mentioned before, my hair grows really fast now i use this weekly. so i put it on my eyelashes (only slightly, nothing to irritate them) and they have never looked so thick and long and healthy! so i then put it on my eyebrows- OMG in a week they were growing like crazy and so much more thick! i can finally pluck them into a shape i want! so good for sparse eyebrows like mine. 3) face. i have an oily t-zone that gets blocked, so instead of using this as a moisturizer, i mix with a bit of avocado or banana and smother it on my face for an hour before cleansing off. because of its anti-bacterial purposes it helps clear my spots but my skin is glowing and so smooth! 4) skin. dry patchs = gone. elbows, feet, knees, hands they are like babys bums no lie 5) health! so much better for you than regular oils! can you tell i like this oil ahha? even reccomended it to my friend for her psoriasis and she said its really working. cant reccomend enough really... bought mine from holland & barrett :)
LOVE THIS! 1) really great stylish packaging, also nice and slim. 2) gives the most gorgeous glow/slight slimmer, lit-from-within kind of look 3) feel like i'm NEVER going to run out!
ah, my HG bronzer/contourer. its the perfect colour, MATTE, and really adds defintion to my face. will repurchase again and again! although packaging is really ugly haha
I bought this after wanting a lighter foundation & even though I have bad spot scarring on my chin and just between my eyebrows, my skin is clear. a little dab of concealer on those areas, and then a wash of face and body and OH MY GOD. 100% you cannot tell I'm wearing foundation but it literally makes any pores go away and my complexion is smooth and glowing. I have #32 (I'm an nc25 in mac) and its perfect for me! I use a real techniques buffing brush or my fingers and its just perfect. really gorgeous foundation!
so lovely and refreshing. feel like i've just had a shower after this! GREAT for flights
I like this a lot but it doesnt give me a glow.. it makes me look just awake. Its very pretty but I dont know.. its just a bit.. bleh. Its very pigmented and just a little stroke on my cheeks gives me a lovely look but I wouldnt use this everyday.
