Concealers -Too Faced - Absolutely Flawless Concealer

Bought one of these off asos.com during their recent sale and have since repurchased after the first one arrived! This concealer is very thick and rich-- i usually squeeze a pinhead sized amount (or slightly bigger, depending on the extent of my dark eye circles on the day) on my finger and that's more than sufficient to cover both my dark undereye circles. This is also pretty good at concealing other blemishes on the face, and again, u only need a tiny bit. So yes a little definitely goes a long long way with this product! I set this with a Kryolan loose powder and I find it stays on remarkably well. I've had this concealer on for about 12 hours now and most of it is still there, with minimal creasing. In terms of colour, I bought this in the medium shade (perfect nude) and it blends well with my natural skintone (MAC NC30 for reference). Very, very happy with this concealer, as concealers are one of the things i CANNOT live without! So far, i'm liking this more than my MAC pro longwear concealer & Bobbi Brown concealer.
Goes on BLACK, not purple-- that in itself i don't particularly mind. However i find the fallout to be quite terrible! I also find this harder to blend than some of my other MAC shadows. Probably will not repurchase, i think there are better dark shadows out there.

Gorgeous beautiful dark metallic purple-y shade-- blends beautifully, great colour payoff and minimal fallout makes this a HIT for me! This is now officially one of my fave MAC eyeshadows and I'm going to try and find a backup now. I just wish this wasn't LE =(
This is my favourite shade of eyeshadow-- its a beautiful colour that is perfect for lining and creating a smoky eye! I wear this almost everyday. Great staying power and i love how smoothly it glides on. Cannot recommend this enough!
AMAZING, AMAZING staying power! I was after a liquid eyeliner that didn't budge for a recent beach holiday and boy was i glad i had this with me! I spent the whole day at the beach splashing around in the water, as well another full day at a water theme park and this eyeliner DID NOT BUDGE/SMUDGE/FLAKE a single bit!!! No other liquid eyeliner has ever stayed on like that, and i'm very much in love with this eyeliner. You'll need a waterproof makeup remover to get rid of this stuff though, and it takes a while! The only downside to this otherwise fantastic eyeliner is the brush, which i find a bit fiddly to use and tends to clump (which is why it gets 4 lippies instead of 5). I'll definitely repurchase this though!
Very bright and highly pigmented pinky-peach blush that needs to be used with a light hand! It gives a beautiful flushed glow if used sparingly, but use too much of this and you risk looking "clown-ish".
