Holy Grail make up remover, i have five bottles of this in a drawer as a back up. I know its a discontinued product so whenever i find somewhere that stocks it i have to buy a few. Simply squirt into your hand and rub over your eyes (really massage it into your skin) and it simply melts the make up away then wipe with a cotton pad/ball and ta dah fresh skin! I like to finish with a tea tree toner and a rich mosturiser. The best product ive ever used for make up removal. Gutted Loreal discontinued their De Maq Expert line!!

Powder -Collection 2000 - Sheer Loose Powder - Translucent
missglitterdiva 6/27/2011 8:40:00 AM
The powder comes in a sifter jar which is basically a make up jar that is covered with a plastic lid that has little holes drilled into the top to allow powder to come through. Most convenient way of packaging loose powder as it allows you to just tip out what you want and it saves a heck of a lot of waste. There is 20g of product in this jar so there's a lot of powder for what you pay :) Scent This product has no scent. Texture/Colour The powder itself is pale beige in appearance but it's translucent so it is practically colourless when applied. This is useful because it will matify your face but won't alter the colour of your foundation/blusher. From the appearence I presumed it would feel a bit chalky but it didn't. It felt very soft. How Well Does It Work? When I bought this I figured it would be your average joe powder. It is after all Collection 2000. Not that I have anything against drugstore brands but this brand in particular have really turned it around. I expected it to be crappy in comparison to more expensive powders but this isn't true at all. The quality of their products has got SO much better. This powder blends beautifully. It really mattifies the face too. After I applied it I felt my skin and it just left my skin feeling unbelievably soft. I did not expect a drugstore loose powder to be so good. Buy Again? It only costs £4.99 and you get a huge 20g jar for your money. It worked wonderfully for me and kept my face matt all day. I am definitely buying it again.

Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
missglitterdiva 4/25/2011 10:53:00 AM
i cannot fault this product, its makes my face matte for over 12 hours, its sets and helps my make up stay in place and is great for nights out for touch up fantastic product, fantastic price please dont ever discontinue!
Move over MAC Mineralized Skin Finishes! This baby blows you out of the water! priced at £2.99 (GBP) this stuff is amazing! It is a buildable colour so it can be used as a simple sheen over the whole cheek, a cheekbone highlighter or as a contour powder two words! Absolutley Amazing 5 Stars!!!
waste of money. im not sure if i got a bad batch but it sort of patchy when i apply it! its great to set your eyeliner but i find i really have to dig the brush in to get a deep black pigmented eyeshadow look. tbh my coastal scents matte black works better. MAC Must have? I think not back to the drawing board MAC because this is useless!
What a fantastic product again from W7! This is an exact copy of Benefits That Gal primer. It helps foundation stick all day and gives a beautiful glow to the skin! An amazing product snap it up now girls!

missglitterdiva 4/9/2011 4:41:00 AM

It is buildable, affordable and great quality the price can rang from £2.00 (GBP) to £4.99 (GBP) and is a fantastic bronzer! Definatley check out W7 products they have quite a few benefit copys and are amazing quality!

Cleansers -Neutrogena - Visibly Clear 2-in-1 wash mask
missglitterdiva 2/5/2011 4:12:00 PM
After watching SWalkerMakeup RAVE RAVE RAVE about this on youtube i thought i'd give it a go. I found it in Asda whilst doing my food shopping for £3.52 and though right here we go. So i used it as a wash morning and night every day for a week and then once a week as a mask leave it on for 15 minutes. My skin has never ever ever looked this good or felt this good! All spots gone, blackheads elimanated and my skin is like velvet! I will never ever use anything else this is HG status for me now. I follow up by toning my face with Asdas own brand toner (AMAZING STUFF, AMAZING PRICE Beats Cliniques toner hands down!) then use my Clinique Dramatically Different Mosturising Lotion then use my Derma V10 Eye roller ball which helps cool and soothe eyes, makes them look awake and reduces and prevents wrinkles and dark circles. This is now my HG skin care routine and i will never change it. I also use Olay Cleansing Exfoliator as a 2 times a week exfoliater and St Ives Apricot Scrub as a once a week GRITTY exfoliater. Neutrogena Great Price, Great Packaging, Great Product Well Done! 5/5!!! *****
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
missglitterdiva 2/3/2011 8:28:00 PM
For the ladies saying this fades fast your applying it all wrong lol! This works with any gel liner but take a cotton swab (NOT a Qtip too fluffy!) a cotton swab and dry your waterline off then flip it over and dry your other eyes waterline then take an angled eyeliner brush dip it in the pot of fluidline and carefully spread it along your waterline so its a block black colour, repeat on other eye. Then take a matt black eyeshadow MAC Carbon is perfect on a small eyeshadow brush and pat it over the gel liner on the waterline all across then repeat on other eye. Then take a loose skin powder and apply all underneath eye as close to bottom of eye (but not on waterline) as possible this soaks up any oil and stops your eyeliner running. I do this everyday without fail and it can withold a hard days work at university (where i do a dance degree so dance all day then straight to work where im a dance teacher at a dance school then straight off to the pub from there i have even slept in this - not on purpose bad girl! - and it has stayed on use this trick ladies i guarantee you will be impressed :) im sure this would work with blue gel liner and blue shadow or any other colours but ive only tried black :) good luck!
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer
missglitterdiva 2/2/2011 6:05:00 PM
I have tried MAC, Smashbox, GOSH, Benfit etc etc and non of them work as well for me as this i take a little bit on my finger and dot it on my forehead, under each eye, on each temple, chin, nose and each cheek then blend it out with warm fingers. I let it settle for say ten minutes whilst i straighten my hair then apply my foundation. I say you must use a good mosturiser before this (for reference i use Clinique Dramatically Different Mosturising Lotion) let that sink in for 2-3minutes then apply this. This primer helps even out my skin tone and create a flawless even base for my foundation (either MAC Studio Fix Fluid or Revlon Colourstay) it prolongs the staying power of my foundation. I apply this at 8am and leave the house for university (where i do a dance degree so dance pretty much all day) then i go straight from university at 4pm to work (where i am a dance teacher so dance again lol) and get home at about 8.30pm and my foundation is still fully in tact. I sometimes apply some powder about 12pm lunchtime for my oily forehead but thats it. I adore adore adore this primer and got it for £1.99 at the metrocenter at a discount cosmetic stand and wish wish wish i'd got some back ups as ive never seen it since boooo :( looks like an Ebay job for me :D haha! HG primer :D
