Highlighters -Urban Decay - Urbanglow Cream Highlight

I puchased sin which was the perfect highlight colour for my fair skin. Loved the highlighting effect of this product and the packaging is super cute and practical. The only drawback I found was that after an hour or so it seems to dissolve my foundation. I have tried applying it so many different ways but it always seems to leave my cheekbones stripped of all makeup which is not a great look :(. Its a great product just unfortunate that I have to constantly keep an eye on it and re-apply.
So it has been released again as part of the "cham pale" collection. I was looking for a nude lipstick for work that would bring out the natural colour of my lips without being too shimmery but I'm a bit dissappointed. Using the lipstick on its own there is very little colour payoff and I think the Lustre can be a bit much for wearing to work. It is a beautiful colour in the tube but is a touch too sheer with a touch too much lustre. The saving grace was I tried it on top of macs subculture nude lipliner and achieved my desired effect :) I would not repurchase because there are so many nude lipsticks available that I would probably find the perfect coulou if I keep looking rather than settling for second best.
Wedge is without a doubt my favourite neutral matte eyeshadow. I use this almost daily as it is so versatile I an use it to complement most any look. I almost exclusively use it as a crease colour which blends perfectly with my everyday understated shadow for work and gives great depth to my eyes. If I'm going on a night out I can use it to tone down too much shimmer and to make my brow highlight really stand out. Unless my skin colour changes dramatically I will continue to repurchase this forever :) Packaging is pretty standard and the clear plastic piece has come apart unfortunately buy that would not turn me off it. Price was 15euro which is steep enough but worth it when you know it's a colour with so many uses.
I was surprised at the amount of negative reviews of this product as it is now my HG mascara! I have very long lashes naturally and am always searching for a mascara to thicken without making my lashes look too huge, the search is over :) The product comes out of the packaging smoothly and with little clumping. Two coats is the perfect amount for thicker lashes and no spider lash effect. I will definately repurchase.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eye pencil in Yeyo

Like many of us I was searching for the perfect eye opening liner for the lower waterline, unfortunately I purchased it in a cosmetic shopping binge. On the positive side the colour is pretty and catches the light beautifully, staying power is average but will need a few touch ups throughout the day. Now for the downside, the colour transfers onto the lower lashes which can make even the smoothest eye makeup aplication look sloppy and it is hard to remove it from the lashes without ruining your complete look. The colour was too frosty for the natural look I ws going for but I use it sometimes for fancier occassions. Packaging quality was everything you would expect from a pencil liner :) I wouldn't repuchase.
Love the colour but I would not pay as much for a nail polish colour that has been replicated so many times. Chip resistant for about 2 days and a really great colour for summer.
Skincare - Body -MAC - Bronze Body Oil (To the Beach 2010)

When I applied this on my skin it had a beautiful light shimmery glow which is great for pale skintones such as myself. One problem though, I like to wear an instant tanning product when I go out. I put the bronzing oil on this (the mac ba said it would be fine) and it looked perfect. As the day wore on I looked at my watch to discover the oil had melted my tan into sticky patches and I had to wear a cardigan. Love the product and I am happy I purchased it, the patchy incident knocked it down a bit for me.
