I bought this product as I liked the idea of what the product claims to do. " new cream-whipped foundation for 100% baby smooth perfection and up to 14hrs hydration". I have quite dry skin which is problem sometimes, as many foundations that I have tried seem to cake on the dry bits of my face, even when using a moisturiser beforehand. You get a lot of product 14g for the price you pay, although it does not look like much from the packaging. When you first open it theres a plastic side where you have to lift it to open it and it contains a sponge applicator. The other half is the foundation where you have to twist it to open it. When I first applied the foundation the texture is very creamy and lightweight, which is good as it would be easy to blend and it would not feel cakey on the skin. This foundation gives a light to medium coverage and it makes your skin feel nice and soft. As for hydration it is quite hydrating, but not as much as I thought it would be..Overall I am quite happy with this so far.
I got this product recently and so far I quite like it. It comes in a nice compact sleek case. When opened you will see that it has 4 different colours inside, which are yellow, blue, green and pink. What I like to do is use the yellow and pink together for my undereyes to act as a corrector and then put the concealer on top of it. I tend to get really dark blueish red bags under my eyes and by doing this it helps it a lot. I also like to use all 4 colours together and brush it all over my face to even out my skintone.

Its ingredient friendly, only contains 5 or 4 ingredients, The advantage is that it it gives you a nice glow to your face. however the downside is that it tends to be quite heavy when applied, if you are heavy handed with applying foundation it can look cakey. Which is not a good look, unless you want full coverage. The whole tub lasts a very long time.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Crystal Gloss

I got this in peach nectar which is a lovely orange red colour, which is very nice to wear during the summer. It comes in a nice slim tube. You cna either buy it at 6ml or 10ml. It has a nice glossy pigmentation to it. The smell of the product is ok, you can almost taste it. The product lasts for a while as well which is good.
This is my current favourite fragance at the moment. I've been using this more often than my other fragances. Its got a nice fruity smell to it which i love. Its not such a powerful scent and so you can wear it durign the day or in the evenings.
This is my favourite dark brown eyeliner I use. Its versatile you can do a natural look or brown look by building the colour up and smudging it. I tend to wear this almost everyday.
Polishes -Rimmel - French Manicure Cafe Au Lait 464

I don't normally spend much or buy nail polishes. So i opted for rimmel nail polishes. I remember buying a couple of rimmel nail polishes in different colours years ago and thought they were quite good. This time i decided i wanted a natural/nudish nail colour and this colour is perfect, i really like the milky peachy and a rosey undertone to this. It certainly leaves your nails smooth and dries quite quickly.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss (general)

I absolutely love this product it comes in a range of different shades, i bought 2 of these one in Raisan glaze and the other in glossy rose.The rectangular glass container amakes the lip gloss look very classy. Its got a nice sweet smell which i personally like. The lipgloss has a good colour pigmentation and a nice shine, most lipglosses tend to be sheer. Its quite sticky though, but not overally sticky where it sticks to your hair. It also lasts for quite a long time.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Brush-on cream liner in TRUE BLACK

After trying Mac fluidline i decided to invest in a clinque cream liner in true black with most of the positive reviews. You get much more product from this product than from a mac fluidline, which i was actually suprised. The cream liner is 5g and the mac fluidline is 3g or 4g i think, the price is reasonable for the amount you get for a high branded product. What i liked about this product is that it comes with a small applicator brush which eases the use of using the liner and you don't have to buy a liner brush if you don't have one already. Because of its creamy texture it does not dry quickly and i don't have to dip my brush in the pot more than once to do one eye. Another thing is that it lasts for so long throughout most of the day so you don't have to keep reapplying it. Overall i'm glad i got this product.
Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - her glossiness in who are you wearing

When i first saw the packaging, the colour was very nice and pink. I like the idea of how its a sponge rather than a tube. Giving it more ease of use. When i applied the lip gloss, i was quite dissapointed with it. It comes out quite sheer, not much color is shown on the lips and so i only use this to apply over a base color now. It was also quite sticky. Other than that the smell is lovely and you get quite a bit in the lip gloss.
I just bought this recently because my scalp has been getting crazily flakey especially in this cold weather and it actually seemed to work. The only bad point is that it maybe hard to use it at first, but when you come to using this product properly it won't be much of a hassle. It comes as a big bar which is good, lasts a long time. you may have to cut it or heat it a little by putting it under hot water and rubbing it in your hands to get much more. Don't put big chunks of it or massage the whole bar on your scalp, otherwise you would get a whole lot of oil in your hair as well and your hair would tend to look greasy, even after washing it. Although the smell may put you off from buying it, its a treatment not a shampoo, so just wash your hair afterwards using shampoo and conditioner to get rid of the smell.

Lately i have been getting really dry chappy lips. So I decided to invest in this product because someone recommended it. I just bought it today and i have to say its one of the best lip care treatment i tried so far. It definately treats my chapped lips. Although it's quite expensive its worth it.
