I love this BB cream! It will replace all of my expensive foundations from now on :) It makes my skin look flawless.
I was looking for an all purpose shade and I found it with Romantic. It pretty much goes with everthing and can be used day and night. I'll be repurchasing when it runs out. The lipstick itself is creamy and non-drying.
My new HG foundation! After my last favourite was discontinued, I tried this one and I'm so glad I did. I love it. It goes on easily, blends well, looks natural and really makes my skin appear flawless. I'll be using this until they inevitably discontinue it (seems to happen every time I find a foundation I love!)

I've only been using this for a week, twice a day, and so far I love it! It absorbs well, great under makeup. My skin feels smoother already, softer and my skin tone more even. My fine lines are less noticeable. I look forward to seeing the results after a few months.

I really like the natural colour this tanner gives. I'm so pale and this tanner is very subtle. it just gets rid of the blinding white look my skin has. The only problem I have with it is the strong perfume smell it has. At least it doesn't smell like fake tan, but my sheets and pyjamas smell so strongly of perfume I almost can't bear it.
Misc Beauty Tools -ModelCo - Lash Wand Heated Eyelash Curler

I'm not a fan of regular lash curlers... I tend to painfully pinch my lids way too often, and I don't like the 'kink' they give my lashes. This heated wand is great! My lashes are already curled enough, but this just opens my eyes a bit more. I won't use a regular lash curler again... this one works fab. My only complaint is how many batteries it goes through, oh and the lid often falls off.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Shizen - Lip Hydrating Serum

After months of using Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, and finding it making my dry lips worse, I decided to try something that is not petroleum based. I'm so glad I did. This serum is a little awkward to use, as it is an oil in a bottle, with a dropper. But it will last for ages, as only one tiny drop is needed. It's certified oranic, with all natural ingredients. And it actually works! From the very first day I can see and feel the differenmce. My lips appear plumper, smoother, and the fine lines have diminished ever so slightly. I'll be using this every day now. Ingredients: Certified Organic Sweet Almond Pure Oil, Certified Organic Jojoba Oil, Certified Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Orange Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil.
I wanted to like this cream, as so many people rave about it. But it really seems to be glorified Vaseline, which I won't touch. I used it for months on my dry lips at night, but it seemed to actually make them worse, which made sense when I realised it's petroleum based. I gave it a rating of 2, as I haven't tried it on other skin complaints, so it may work better for those. I recently got myself Shizen organic lip hydrating serum, which actually contains real moisturising properties, and I can see the difference after only one night. My lips appear fuller and smoother and the fine lines around them have reduced in appearance. I'll be sticking to Shizen from now on.
Lip Liners -Rimmel - 1000 kisses stay on lipliner in wild clover

I buy this lipliner all the time, and wear it constantly. It's a perfect natural colour that just goes with everything and is great quality for the price. Love love love it!
I use this every time I wear makeup, and I love it. I sat for ages choosing the colours and the staff were very helpful. So now I have a lovely palette of colours that all suit my colouring (strawberry blonde with green eyes and freckles) I'll defnitely be returning to Inglot.
Love this liner! Good price and quality. I'm an Inglot convert now :-)
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

I wanted so much to love this... but alas, it's awful. I've stuck with it for months now and am finally throwing it in the bin. The problem for me is that there is just sooooo much product on the brush. I wipe the brush several times every application and still end up with gluggy clumpy lashes that I have to comb out with another mascara brush. So not worth it. My lashes are naturally quite plentiful anyway, so I think I'll just stick with an old faithful Maybelline Great Lash or something in that price range.
I love this colour! It's really intense though, so it's not for everyone. The only gripe I have is that it doesn't stay on long... not like my matte Russian Red. But it's worth the extra effort for this fabulous fuchsia pink!
My HG red lipstick! Perfect colour, I love the matte finish. It stays on all day, with just a touchup after eating.

This is my HG powder! I adore the slight sparkle... barely noticeable, but gorgeous. It's such a light finish, I can't fault it. 5/5
