I have this foundation in 'believe in me' ivory, the pink toned shade. I would recommend you get matched by a MUA, particularly if you are fair skinned as there are two different ivory shades. This is the perfect partner of Hello Flawless Powder and it really is worth investing in both if you want to achieve a truly flawless look (the powder is amazing).

Pros

fromKaty21

Apr/26/2012

This is a very good mascara and I will most likely purchase again, but I do have a few issues with it.

Good points:
- Great formula that lasts for hours and does not smudge or run.
- Gives excellent length and definition.
- Wand is good for 'catching' those hard to reach inner corner lashes and bottom lashes.
- Curl seems to last a long time …

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - Watt's Up! Cream Highlighter

I think highlighters are my 'vice' product... I have tried most of the highlighters BeneFit have to offer and Watt's Up is just beautiful.
A lot of people moan about the price of BeneFit products but I find they last such a long time that they are worth splashing out on.
I love the unusual cream-to-powder formula of Watt's Up. It works very well over the top of matte …

This blush from Illamasqua is absolutely beautiful. It is a bright bold rosy pink. It is VERY pigmented and should be used with a light hand!
The powder has a soft and creamy texture that blends like a dream. Even though it has a matte finish, it doesn't look 'flat'.
It brightens my fair skin very well and I imagine it would look stunning on darker skintones too.

I was excited to try this foundation from Bourjois. I am always on the lookout for full coverage drugstore foundations. Unfortunately, this did not really work for me.


Good points:
Full coverage, hides blemishes.
Good price.
Really nice quality bottle, great pump.
Lovely light, floral scent.


Bad points:
Really clings to any dry or flaky …

Apr/25/2012

I have used Revlon Colorstay in the shade Natural Beige on and off for several years now. Hands down, it has the best longevity of any drugstore/high street foundation and I will continue to repurchase.


Good points:
- It has a quick drying formula and excellent full coverage.
- It is a cheaper dupe for Macs Studio Fix Fluid foundation (I am NW20). In fact, the Revlon …

I have never tried any of the original Asian B.B creams so I cannot make a valuable comparison, however I really like this product from Garnier. I bought it alongside the brightening eye roll-on and so far have been very impressed.
This B.B cream feels very nourishing and moisturising. It melts into the skin and works wonders for 'bluring' uneven skin-tone and brightening the …

Apr/25/2012

Illamasqua is fast achieving cult status on the London beauty scene. There has been so much hype around the Skinbase Foundation that I was convinced it could be my HG. I was seriously excited to try it out. The formula is inspired by Asian Beauty Balm creams and promises to create the 'perfect complexion' whilst feeling totally natural. There are 18 shades with a variety of undertones …Read more

Jan/04/2011

This true red, multi-function stain gives a lovely, natural flush to cheeks that can be built up to create a look as rosy as you'd like and lasts a long time too. Also works with individual lip tone giving a sexy, 'bitten' look that can also be made stronger using a couple of coats. Lips need to be in good, moist condition before using this because it can be a little drying …Read more
