Yeah it's all been said before but this is just my absolute favourite blush. It is just such a perfect colour. I love blush in general, it's one of my most important makeup items, but I hate it to look overdone, and this is perfect for me because one light swipe gives me all the colour I need to give me a rosy glow all day.
I do love the NARS matte pencils. They are super moisturising and super pigmented- which is a difficult combination to find. Colours are of course completely subjective- but pop life is great on me- the slight orange tint is perfect for livening up my pale face. At first I had problems with the packaging- none of my makeup pencil sharpeners worked! but I finally decided to just commit to buying the NARS sharpener and I haven't had a problem since.
This is a brilliant moisturiser- and it smells like vanilla and orange cake! all natural, super cheap and does a great job. Love it.
This is the best shampoo that I have ever used. Honestly better than the salon products I have bought before. Maybe it's just my hair type- very fine hair, but tonnes of it? But this shampoo just makes it super soft, clean and not at all greasy. I can't believe more people aren't using this! Also love the chamomile smell. (I use it with the conditioner in the same line- perfect)
This is one of those simple, brilliant products that I cannot believe I lived without. I have always had oily skin, with occassional breakouts and it's tough finding a moisturiser that stops bad winter dryness and flakiness whilst not making my skin flare up! This product is it. For my skintype it's just a dream- dry patches actually just disappeared and my skin is all soft and plump and dewy. No breakouts at all! And along with all this, the product is all natural with no scary ingredient list. Absloutely Brilliant.
I thought I would try this as it's been recommended to me by so many people- I have always used Revlon colorstay and i was told this was similar but better. At first, I thought they were right, and when I first started using it it looked great- great coverage and consistency. But longterm, it just really detroyed my skin the way Colorstay never has, I got terrible breakouts with this stuff and somehow my skin even got drier at the same time. I really hoped this would be amazing but sadly it is 'special occassion only' for me.

I really love this foundation. It's hard to find that happy medium between makeup that offers good coverage and yet doesn't look too solid and cakey on your face. This is the best I've yet found for that job. It goes on light, but it still does a great job of blending, and hiding my slightly red nose. Having said that, it's not perfect for every occasion. Sometimes I feel it might be a bit too light for those times when you really want perfect skin. But it's absolutely perfect for everyday wear! I'll definitely buy it again. (I'm very pale and I've got the lightest shade)

For the price, this stuff is pretty great. I find that it gives a beautiful, hydrated glow to my face. Sure it's not super long-lasting, and it doesn't give coverage like foundation does, but that's not the point. My skin-tone is evened, and I feel great not wearing something heavy, that has benefits (and SPF) for my skin. It smells great too and I think it's truly one of the best bargain buys!

Brilliant moisturiser. It's absorbed really quickly, which is why I love it (you don't have to rub it in or anything!) and it makes your skin nice and dewy but not sticky or greasy.

I love this foundation! I've been looking for make-up that's not going to make my face all shiny, run off half-way through the day or aggravate my acne-prone skin and this really delivers. I've got the 'nude' shade and it's perfect for my skin. love!
