Eye Primer -NYX - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

Did not work for me at all. I have oily hooded eyelids and this product does absolutely nothing to prevent eye shadow from creasing. If anything, eye shadow creases more quickly with this greasy product. Pigmentation is very much improved, either. To oily lidded ladies with deep creases, stay away from this product!
Terrible! This makes my lips so dry, chapped and cracked. It's disgusting. I'll stick to my Blistex!
Eye Shadow -Almay - intense i-color for brown eyes "Purple Amethyst"

The colours look so pretty in the package but there is so little pigmentation, everything just fades into a slight shimmer. Not only is there not much pigmentation, but it also creases a lot. Very disappointing product.

This is a great moisturiser. The consistency is a bit thick and applies easily. It sinks into the skin and makes the skin smooth. And I love the smell! Only con is the bottle design. Once you near the end, the middle caves in and it's so hard to get the remaining product out.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Cotton Extract

I received this free as I'm a BzzAgent. I didn't really like this cleanser. It doesn't lather at all and the texture is like a thick moisturiser. It doesn't wash off that well and it didn't make my face clean. As a possible consequence, I ended up breaking out. This might be good if you have very, very dry skin, otherwise I'd try something else.
Lipstick -Cover Girl - lip perfection Lipstick in Embrace

I really love this colour. It's an intense, dark berry purple colour. The colour is very intense, so I don't wear it that often. A perfect bold lip colour. I find the formula for these lipsticks to be very smooth and moisturising. This shade stains your lips, which I don't mind at all. I find that if you dap the lipstick on, the colour stay for a very long time. Love this!
Don't like this lipstick at all. The colour is OK. It has some slight golden shimmer to it. On me, it doesn't go on smoothly and the colour is very patchy and sinks into my lip creases giving a horrible crusty look. I also find the formula to be quite drying and it flakes.
Really like this lipstick. Beautiful cool toned pink, which is a MLBB shade with a hint of shine. Goes on really smooth and I love the purple packaging.
This product was terrible for me. I used it for a couple of weeks and within the first few days I was already getting a pimples. I rarely get pimples but this product made me break out worse than I've had in 10 years. Just days after I stopped using it, my skin started clearing up. This product also made my skin really dry and flaky. Again, this was never a problem for my skin. My skin is still trying to get the moisture back. This was honestly the worst face wash I have ever tried. The only pro is that it lathers nicely.

The brush on this eyeliner is really nice and give a smooth line. It's not very pigmented though, so I find myself going over the line a few times, which can lead to flaking. But unlike other eyeliners I've tried, this is pretty smudge proof, so I don't have to worry about racoon eyes. This is great for a sleek, fine line.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

Okay cream. Nice texture and sinks into the skin. I've been using it for several months and I haven't really seen any decrease in wrinkles. I'd buy it if it was on sale and with a coupon, but not a RRP.
This was the first eyeliner I ever tried and I like it. The felt brush gives good control and is great for a bold wing eye. The colour is a great pigmented, dark black. Although the bottle is small, it lasts for absolutely ages. The only cons are that it will smudge if you touch it, so keep those fingers from your eyes! Also when applying, my eyelashes get covered in the eyeliner liquid because of the brush. I always clean up my eyelashes after applying this eyeliner, otherwise you'll get fallout.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

The worst eyeliner I have ever tried. This smudges like crazy. I have never had eyeliner that bled into my eyelid folds, but this sure did! NOT smudge proof and NOT long lasting. It was smudging within the hour. I tried using primer, setting it with powder... nothing worked. No way am I ever buying this again. Stay clear of this!
