Because I live in very very cold and dry weather, this foundation is absouletely perfect. My skin is naturally quite dry and having to battle against the cold windy weather isn't helpful either. The foundation is really nice for a glowy texture, adds a lot of radiance and smoothness to the skin. However sometimes when it gets hot indoors and I sweat a bit, it does look a bit on the oily side just around the nose area but then again I do not use powder over my face. Overall the product is quite nice, a stronger and smoother version of the vitalumiere aqua. Worth the investment
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - EdHardy HEARTS AND DAGGERS

I am not an Ed Hardy fan when it comes to perfume but every girl will love this! Ok I mean girls who are probably not over late 20's but this is perfect for summer. I would definitely not recommend it to ladies over their late 20's just because I think they would find it tacky as it does bring out a very sweet, flirty, young fruity vibe. The main notes in this perfume do consist of a more fruity scent (apple, mango, blood orange). I have bought a 100ml bottle of this - although it was not cheap! I initially wanted to purchase Dior Addict 2 but the sales assistant told me that they had ran out of stock so I tried something new. I initially opted for burberry summer and the dkny apple perfume but once I was given this I had no second thoughts and bought it immediately. It lasts for quite a long time and if you are looking for a very fresh and fruity scent - this is the one to go for! Although the packaging is not sexy or high quality, the goodness is contained inside that nasty packaging so even though its appearance is not that great...or maybe i should say unique but i definitely love it and do not regret purchasing this!
This product is amazing! For its quality, value, packaging, length, volume! I am a huge fan of mascaras, i collect them and I must say that this is better than big high end brands like Lancome, Clinique, Chanel.... it is fantastic! I really like the volume it gives and it builds easily without getting nasty and clumping! Even with 2 coats your lashes look lush! They sustain your curl....i cannot explain how amazing this is..I keep on purchasing this mascara again and again and may even be a holy grail product!!!

I had heard about this from pixi2woo at first so I decided to try it out. Although from where I purchased it, the product was no cheap at all - just a bit cheaper than MAC foundations but I decided to try it out anyway. My shade is 54 and I LOVE IT. The coverage itself is not heavy, but the finish is perfect. I very nice spring season finish as it gives you radiance and a dewy look. The foundation also smells gorgeous - however this might not be perfect for people with sensitive skin. Overall I think that the finish is great, it doesn't break me out and the coverage makes it great for spring!
At first I wanted to purchase the Lady Gaga lipstick but the lipstick was out of stock and I asked whether there was another lipstick that was similar to the Lady Gaga one and they recommended me this one. I thought it didn't really look that good but once I put it on my lips it looked REALLY good. There were no cracks or anything, and considering the fact that my lips are quite dry - I was able to put them on without putting a lip balm underneath it. The pigment itself is fantastic as well as I have quite pigmented lips, I didn't need a concealer either. It's more of a peachy nude but I really love this product and would definitely REPURCHASE this.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

This gel eyeliner can be a great and cheaper substitute for the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. Although the brush that comes in it isn't THAT great, but i mean what do you expect?! As for the gel eyeliner itself, I really like it. I think that the Bobbi Brown one is exactly the same but softer and more pigmented. However this one is not as soft (which can be a good thing because too soft clumps too much of the gel onto the brush) whereas with a harder gel you can just stroke your brush in the pot a few times. I would definitely recommend this product regardless of the price!
This mascara is Ok. Compared with other brands it does not have much of a speciality. Not very volumising but does lengthen to some extent. For the price of the mascara I would much rather buy a drugstore mascara as it probably is even better. Not too fond of this mascara and I thought it would be absolutely stunning, but not so sure after using it two to three times...
