This is my favourite blush by far! Beautiful creamy texture that dries matt and healthy pinky rose shade that looks very natural on my medium-dark asian skintone! You can develop the shade very easily by patting more on your skin without looking overdone. Colour lasts all day! £13.50 well spent! Only thing, i wish it came with a mirror, but otherwise would definitely purchase again.
A thick green, lavender-scented mask with coarse almond granules. To be honest, most hydrating masks succeed in making my skin soft and supple and this wasn't any better than the rest, nor did it do a brilliant job at exfoliating as the granules were a little too big/harsh. Plus it broke me out on both occasions which has NEVER happened to me before with any beauty products. I would not, therefore, repurchase.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Longueur Intense

One of the worst mascaras i've ever used. Was very disappointed. Maybe it'll grow on me, but compared to the YSL false lash mascara, this is dire. Did not lengthen or thicken and just weighed lashes down. Wish I could return it but this is the UK... :P
I usually use light nude shades but this was too beautiful to resist! A medium pinky mauve-brown shade. Hard to describe but perfect for a professional polished look! The scent is lovely and light (I hate most lipstick smells esp. Estee Lauder!) and the texture is creamy and smooth and lasts for a considerable amount of time. One of my staples and worth every penny.
A wonderful light pinky-brown lipliner. Staple for nude lips!! I have an asian-olive complexion and it goes perfectly with the lipstick shades i use! Would prefer a little longer lasting power but who can complain for such dirt cheap price!?
Moisturizers -Origins - Never Say Dry [DISCONTINUED]

Pleasantly surprised by this luxurious moisturiser. Can be a little overwhelming and heavy when applying (I am 23y/o and have combination skin) but when dry, melts in and does not leave an oily/shiny residue (as found with Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream) Good for winter skin dry patches, although I would probably change to a lighter lotion for summer. Beautifully light fresh scent, overall worth every penny of the 25pounds it costs!
A brilliant toner. I adore the light grapefruit scent. I feel my pores disappear after using this! Takes away all traces of makeup and grime and leaves skin soft, supple, not at all oily and smelling very fresh! Highly recommended.
An all-round fab mascara! I have tried around about EVERY mascara on the planet and i find myself choosing this over my normal Lancome and YSL! Its cheap and lengthens, slightly thickens and doesnt clump! I usually use two coats and it leaves lashes soft and gives very pretty fluttery look! I love the fact that its NOT waterproof but still stays on well and has good colour. Would recommend to all u girls out there!
The JUICIEST and SEXIEST lipgloss i own. Its a *rich* red berry that's shiny and non-sticky. I can imagine it may be a tad dark for paler skintones. I am oriental (MMM) but find this "vampy" but wearable, perfect for evenings out! I love it!!
Lip Gloss -MAC - Lipglass stain in Restrained Rust

At first glance this looked a little too dark however on application, its a really beautiful everyday-wear gloss. Nice nude shimmery gold/brown with sweet vanilla scent! Texture a little sticky but very smooth and shiny! Would definitely repurchase.
MY HG of lippies! The Perfect nude.. glossy, smooth, natural beige-pink shade which smells nice too! Reasonably priced in cute packaging! I use this with lipliner alone and it never fails me. Would buy again and again...love it!
A fantastic product! Comes in cute squeezable tubes (like Stila!). I have it in all three flavours, Redcurrent, Chocolate Caramel and Sugar Plum. I like sugar plum best, it tastes SO yummy! This is sheer, but its lovely for a smooth (non-sticky!) moisturising shine to lips. The redcurrent is much more pigmented sexy red shade. Doesn't last exceptionally long and may get messy using a finger but being at such a bargain, would definitely repurchase. :)
Lip Gloss -Sugar Cosmetics - Sugar Shine Lipgloss in Valentine

BY FAR the tastiest gloss i have ever tried haha.. (vanilla cake!) I didn't notice any gritty texture and the sparkly shine was very pretty! Its a pinky purple with a hint of red and mid-sticky. I love the packaging, its so cute! However, i do think this is overpriced at US$20 as the lipgloss itself is nothing special and not particularly lasting. Would repurchase simply 'cos of the yummy taste!
Overall a high quality lipstick. Perhaps a little too frosty for my liking but has a nice texture and lasts longer than most lippies i have tried. Sparkly rosey/beige with a hint of plum. A beautiful combination, very sexy! UD make the best sturdy lipstick packaging!
I liked this a lot! Packaging was a bit bulky to carry around but each product was very pretty. I especially like the cream blush, very smooth, not as sticky as Stila CC's and gives a really healthy flush! The eyeshadows were very pale on me but make me look wide-awake. Lip glosses were probably the least likeable as i'm not fond of frosty lip colors. However, would be nice over a darker shade of lippie as they're so nude. When this is finished, not sure if i'd repurchase but worth a try! More suitable for younger ages i think!
