I realy do not like this concealer for a number of reasons 1 IMO it has hardly any coverage in it. 2 The packaging is very flimsy and the lid comes of in my make up bag. 3 Wherever i apply this my makeup seems to melt of in these places. 4 When i turn the concealer up for use have to use force and t clcks realy loud wch makes me think it is about to break. It has no staying power at all.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
xVegasx 3/20/2012 2:27:00 PM
I recently bought this mascarra beacause I really did not like my MAC false lashes mascarra as it flaked soo bad on me so while i was out shopping i noticed the MAC mascarra had made me look like i had panda eyes i decided to buy a cheap mascarra that i could at least wear for work the next day then i could buy a different mascarra at work but after using this one i realised how long and seperated my lashes looked and i have not bothered buying a new one since,the brush is also good as you can get right in the corner of your eyes.
I realy dislke this mascarra for the simple fact that it flakes on me like crazy,i realy wanted to like this but for £18.00 it is so not worth it,i end up with panda eyes within an hour and can honestly say that no mascarra has ever flaked on me,imo it is also VERY dry,i dont thnk that the name is very fitting either,pretty packagng though Overall ratng 1 - as above Price 1 - i dont mind spending more on a product f it actualy does what it is suposed to do. Packaging 5 - i like the lid to this it kinda reminds me of the Taj Mahal lol Would i buy this again,NNNnnnoooooooo!!
I bought this shaddow beacause it was used in Twillight on Kristen Stewart and Nicki Reed and i thought there make up looked amazing and i am so glad that i got it,i am NC15 and this shaddow blends so well and looks very nice with my skin tone,i use this all over the lid and then use a darker matte color to defne the eye socket,this wll be a permanent shaddow in my palette. This is a matte shade. Wth case £12.00 $15.00 Refil Pan £10.00 $11.50
Treatments -L'Oreal - YOUTH CODE LUMINIZE Super Serum
xVegasx 3/9/2012 6:49:00 PM
This serum is ok to use as a primer under a light foundaton as it gives a pearly sheen to the skin but after useing this for 3 days i broke out like crazy which is very unusual for me,i also thought that the packaging looked very cheap and is very poorley desgned as mine keeps un twistng tself from the bottle so the product ends up all over the inside of my make up bag,the only other thing good about this product is that the smell isnt bad.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
xVegasx 12/11/2011 2:07:00 PM
The only thing that i liked about this product is the packaging,i thought it in no way felt like a primer,it feels like more a moisturiser than a primer,how this is even in a category for 'studio secrets' i do not know.
NARS Danmari palett This palette is made up of 4 blushers(Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Desire and Sin),1 bronzer(Casino) and one highlighter (The left side of hungry heart in this pallet known as Hungry Heart 1) Each pan is 0.12 where a full size one is 0.16 Each pan if sold separately would be £7.50 UK This is actually my first NARS purchase that I have made and I am so glad that I did as this is one of my favorite items in my make up collection. After wanting the infamous Orgasm for a long time and buying BeneFits Sugar Bomb instead and ended up forgetting all about Orgasm until one day I went to my (not so local) NARS counter and falling in love with Sin and was so disappointed when the SA said that they didnít have it in stock and would call me when it came back in stock (she never did) and now im so glad that she didnít because now i have this little beauty lol Hungry Heart 1 4/5 If you are not a fan of glitter in highlighters then this is probably not for you as it is very glittery, but it does look very nice as a eyeshadow or to use on the chest area for nights out.I use this under and over matte blushes to give them a different look. Casino 3/4 I like this bronzer but not that much that I would buy it again, there is no tone of orange in it at all and is great for contouring but because I am NC15 I think somebody with a darker skin tone would love this. Orgasm 5/5 This is on of my all time favourite Pink blusher. It is a pink/peach based blusher with little pieces of gold glitter and shimmer, when the sunshine hits this it makes me look like I am glowing would without a doubt buy this again. Super Orgasm 5/5 As with orgasm I get the same effect with this though I do find that Super Orgasm is more pink than peach. I would repurchase this also. Desire 4/5 In the pan this looks scary pink and I would never of bought this colour on its own as I would be a bit intimidated by the colour but when I applied this I was very surprised it is a very doll like pink that would look very good on I imagine all skin tones. This is the only matte shade in the pallet Sin 5/5 I absolutely love this colour it is that just came in from the cold weather kind of blush, very wintery (donít think that is a actual word but im sure you will understand lol) It is a purple blush with very fine (almost invisible) shimmer that gives nice colour while at the same time looks like its glowing and healthy. Would definitely repurchase this again and again. The Pallet itself is made out of the same material as single NARS blushes which feels very smooth and although gets dirty very quickly it can be wiped clean with a male-up wipe, it also has a nice big mirror in it which I find very handy. Overall this pallet is the perfect addition to anybody make up bag as it has a blush shade for every occasion and is very good value for money. I gave it 5 lippies because I know that I will eventually hit pan on every shade.
Lip Treatments -Sleek - Pout Polish SPF15 in Pink Cadillac
xVegasx 11/15/2011 6:16:00 AM
This stuff is great,would not realy call it a 'polish' as such because it only stays glossy for about 10 mins and sinks into your lips and then kind of looks like a tint with no shine but lasts a good 5 hours.This is great for people like me who love wearing lip balms in the winter as my lips tend to react to lipsticks and losses in the winter by drying them out real bad,it is also very natural looking and lips are feeling so soft after,id say it gives the same result as vaseline does.The only problem that i have with this is it tastes horrible if you accidently get some in your mouth it tastes what can only be described as melted plastic,not nice.Overall i would 100% buy this again.
This paint pot is one of my favourite ones, it is a shimmery taupe and looks so pretty either on its own or with other shadows, it does not crease and stays on all day. This is perfect for those days when your going out but cant really be bothered with make up, one sweep with this any your good to go, girls with blue eyes you need to get this, too bad itís a limited edition because I would definitely repurchase this again and again.

This mascarra is HORRIBLE,not only does it flake like crazy but the design of the brush is impractical,no matter how careful i try to apply this mascarra it goes EVERYWHERE all over the lids,undereyes,if you like the panda eye look this is deffo the mascarra for you. By far the worst make up product i have ever used.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade
xVegasx 11/11/2011 5:36:00 AM
I managed to finally buy this at my MAC counter the day before it went of sale and i am so glad that i did.I have slightly oily skin so i was a bit wary about trying this as its a shimmer but i am so pleased with it.some days i use it as a highliter on its own or before blusher and other days i use it all over to give me a glow.Mine did not have any veining at all but i dont care beacause i like it so much. NC15,Blonde,Slightly oily skin
Light Ash Blonde I use to buy this color all the time and i have not had any problems with it,it always turns out just the way i want it to and is very close to the color on the box,the only problem is that the smell is not that nice but i have tried hair colorants that have been wors smelling before so i cant complain,this is my go to coloring brand when i just want to dye my hair without feeling like i need a hairdresser on speed dial.These are also on offer a lot,very good value for money.
Mascara -Max Factor - False Lash Effect Waterproof
xVegasx 10/24/2011 7:38:00 PM
I realy do like this mascara it curls,lengthens and thickens so pretty much what most people want from a mascara but wow is this hard to take of and it realy does make your lashes feel like there wrapped in plastic,this would be ideal for going on holiday with to go swimming ect beacause it realy does not budge,just make shure you get a realy good waterproof mascara make up remover (i didnt manage to find one good enough)the 4/5 is beacause it realy is so hard to get of and beacause you have to realy try to get it of you are left with red puffy eyes,so probably not the best for people with sensitive peepers. Oh and the handle on the wand is not the best shaped when you are trying not to poke an eye out :)
When i first seen this on the list of product reviews i thought it was a bit strange but boy am i glad that curiosity got the better of me me and i looked at it,no longer will i be buying expensive moisturisers and other things to get rid of oil on my face,i use this as a face mask(literaly just put loads on my face and leave for 5 mins then rinse of)as a primer before make up (apply thin layer and let fully dry before applying make up) i am so glad that i found this and when i forget to use it you realy can tell by me having major make up meltdown lol,defanately worth the £2.70 i paid for it.
