Really lovely cleanser with such a nice gentle rose scent. Leaves skin soft, well cleansed and hydrated. Gives my skin a nice glow.
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - Colorsport 30 Day Mascara Eyelash and Brow Dye Kit

Bought this kit to tint my eyebrows with as I have always found them to be a lot lighter than my hair colour and wasn't expecting much, but it is really good! Ok so the little stir stick you get with it as an applicator is rubbish but I just cleaned up an old mascara wand, also as it is a multi use product I didn't want to use the packaging to mix the product in so I used a lid from a deodorant. I brushed this through and left it for 15 mins, wiped off and had much better defined brows. Happy!
Love this perfume so much, it's quite feminine and fresh but there's something a little different about it that sets it apart from other similar fragrances. When I first tried it in a shop I couldn't stop smelling it all day & it seemed to work well on my skin. I think this one will be a favourite for a long time.
Probably my most repurchased makeup item ever, I use the lightest shade, I think it's called fair. Covers up any spots or marks on the skin I dab it on and then pat it in to my skin really lightly & it looks flawless. I don't use this product under my eyes though as I find the consistency a little to thick for that area. Took one mark off because when will collection 2000 realise the writing just smudges off the tube straight away!
Cleansers -Ren - ClearCalm Anti-Blemish Clay Cleanser

This is the best cleanser I have found, my skin is prone to blemishes, oily in parts and dry in others and this is just the perfect balance for me. I have repurchased this about 4 times now and I doubt I will ever use anything else. It isn't any good at removing makeup but personally I like to remove my makeup before applying a cleanser otherwise I feel like your just pushing dirt around your face and not letting the product get to your skin. I massage this into my face for about a minute and it smells really relaxing and then rinse off with warm water. I saw improvements in the first couple of days and as it is a clay based cleanser it helps my oily areas. So far all the REN products I tried have been lovely.
This mascara didn't work for me, I found it made lashes a bit spidery and was stubborn to remove. I really liked the brush though it has a little ball on the end that let's you get the tiny lashes.
Primer/ Corrector -Clarins - Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

I really enjoy using this primer because it feels lovely when you apply it & makes my foundation go on nicely & last. You don't get a lot of product but you only need the tiniest amount so it does last you. I notice when I don't use it as my skin doesn't look as flawless and smooth. I don't love the packaging I would prefer a tube to make it easier when travelling & more hygienic.
I love this product, I bought it after seeing a Lisa eldridge video and thinking I needed something to perk me up from time to time. As she recommends I only use this when I need a bit of extra help, if I have to get myself looking decent after I have had a late night or if I'm getting ready for a special occasion and want my skin looking perfect. It is a lovely base for makeup & is a nice addition to my makeup routine when needed.
This blush is so pretty, I have very fair skin & this just creates a very subtle rosy flush to the cheeks. I use this product every single day just because its so easy to wear and really brightens my complexion.
Liquid -Laura Mercier - Oil Free Supreme Foundation

Bought this foundation from a Laura mercier counter after being colour matched, got it home and was quite disappointed as when I applied it in daylight the colour was a tad off. Tried to wear on several occasions but didn't find the formula easy to work with and the coverage wasn't brilliant either.
Brilliant product, I have very sparse over plucked brows and the little pencil is perfect at extending the brow and filling in any gaps, the brush on the end is a very handy addition too. It is quite expensive but did last me about 3-4 months so would purchase again.
Over the last few years I have tried many foundations but I always return to double wear just because the finish is unlike any other. If you like full coverage matte finish this is for you. I prefer to apply with my fingers as double wear does tend to dry down quite fast so I can work quickly this way. The only thing that could be improved about this product would be the option of adding a pump as I find myself pouring out too much & as it is a pricey foundation I want to save every last bit!
such a lovely lipstick! Was going to purchase lady danger but got swayed by this one and pleased that I did. I have very pale skin and red hair and this looks perfect, a sort of orangey deep red. Not too drying either for a matte formula.
