I got shade 105 - Rio Peach. This is a lovely shade in the tube, but when on looks clear. It smells absaloutly gorgeous and the texture is great. Stays on for ages and the packaging is really nice. It's quite pricey, not really worth it just for a clear gloss.

I love this, covers spots perfectly. I have fair skin and shade 02 Natural suits me well. Plus, it's better for skin! Really cheap too :)

For months I'd been trying to find the perfect nude lipstick, well, THIS IS IT!!! It's far better than any others I have tried (including MAC and Loreal). It's also the cheapest ive tried (less than £5!) The shade is nude but it has a hint of pink which warms it up a bit. It's really moisturising but still quite matte! LOVE IT!
The packaging for this product is gorgeous! As for the product itself, im not too pleased. I have fair skin and this made my face totaly orange! The formula does not blend well at all, but the product is actually good for touch-ups on top of the foundation I was already wearing as it didnt look as orange. Wouldn't buy again :(
LOVE THIS! I'd defo recommend it, it's a must-have! I got the Blush one, which smells great. This is great for greasy, second day hair or just great as a styling product - it makes hair matte and quite volumey. I especially love the price...less than £2! It's just as good as some of the pricier ones, which I have bought before and been disappointed with. x
Im really pleased with this pinky blusher by Benefit. In the box the shade looks abit wierd, but when it's on it's very flattering. I have fair skin so it looks quite natural on. The brush is great that comes with it and I love the retro packaging :) Smells lovely and is really soft on skin, not too cakey. It's quite expensive - but lasts ages and i'd say it's worth it.

A MUST have make-up palette for make-up junkies!!! I loveee it loads. The packaging is so cute and the eyeshadows are really good quality and great shades. It's not cheap, but you get about 16 shadows in it, which is actually really worth the money for what you get. There's a great range of colours - day or night. I'll never have to buy another eyeshadow again! Comes with a mini Primer aswell which is amazing, great for nights out. Love Love Love It :) x
This is the best eyeliner I have ever used. Pricey, but i'd rather pay for a good quality one and it lasts ages. I love the blender at the end of the pencil, great for doing smokey eyes! I got the teal colour which is really flattering on blue eyes as I find black too harsh on my pale skin. It lasts all day, but I wouldn't exactly call it "waterproof". Really recommend it :)
This foundation is great for a natural, day look. Skin feels really soft when its on and it doesn't clog pores much. I got alabaster - which is a nice peachy pale shade. It has a lovely natural finish and lasts all day. The best thing about it is that it dried out my oily areas (nose) and hydrated my dry areas (cheeks). I love it and would definately recomend it :)

Great eyelash curlers, made my lashes really long and pretty :) Similar to the popular but expensive Shu Uemura ones. Only problem is they're a little bit uncomfortable to use because the black rubber handles come off really easily.
I love Barry M nail polishes. So cheap and the colours are great. I especially love the Coral colour, very flattering. Better than some of my other nail polishes, which costed twice as much! :)
This is the most valued product in my make up bag! I love it and would reccommend it to anyone! Great for dry, chapped lips and extremely dry skin. This got me through the Winter! Expensive in Boots but I found it in Tkmaxx for £5!
If you want natural looking lashes...DON'T buy this! It makes lashes very very clumpy! I love dramatic lashes but all this does is coat each lash in tons of mascara with no definition or length so you end up with just clumpy stumps as lashes! It works better if you use a mascara that lengthens and defines first, and then use the Bourjois Volume Clubbing one to add volume :)
Amazing mascara! I've bought so many different mascaras over the years, and this is the best by far! Seperates lashes perfectly, great definition and makes lashes really reeeally long! Price isn't bad but I normally just buy a cheap mascara such as Miss Sporty and dip the Max Factor brush in the fluid because the brush is the best bit and you save loads of money :D
This is a bright pink bottle of amazingness :) I have long, fine hair which is very static but after I smoothed this on it, it was soft and all my flyaways were tamed! Makes hair really smooth and shiny. It smells gorgeous too and great packaging. Great for girls who straighten their hair loads like me!
