Products in order of preference:

Coralista: My favourite item in the kit so far. I've wanted a coral blush for some time and the gold sheen in this one makes it look really pretty on the cheeks. Relatively long-lasting, doesn't last as long as my usual MAC blush but would still re-purchase.


High Beam: I have tried this product before and liked it but never …

I got this is the Naked pallette and even though I'm trying to be adventurous and rotate the colours I always go back to Sin! I love to use it on my lid with Toasted and Hustle as crease and definer colours The texture is so soft and buttery, it feels like a high-end shadow should. Sin really suits blue eyes and when I run out of this in Naked I'll definitely buy a single pan. The …Read more

I got this second-hand in the Hello Kitty compact. Glad I didn't pay full price as I don't think this product pulls it's weight! To start, I find the pressed powder itself very hard and difficult to transfer onto my brush for application and even after lots of swirling the colour payoff is minimal. I now mainly just use the compact for the mirror inside and forget all about the …Read more

I got this shadow on a blog sale for £5 and to be honest I probably wouldn't have been happy if I paid full price. The glittery side is pretty to look at but covers you in glitter unless applied wet which makes the colour very bronzey as opposed to the gold you see in the pan. As for the purple, it's again pretty to look at but I can't find a way to make it work without looking too …Read more

I was looking for a replacement for a Boots No7 shadow sample I got and loved called 'Tender' which is a pink with gold shimmer. Naked Lunch seemed to fit the bill on paper but at the counter I couldn't stop looking at Jest! It's such a pretty pink/peach in the pan and although this doesn't translate completely on, it looks so good on the eye! It's a subtle, smooth …Read more

Overall very happy with the lipstick. Got it online on the first day of release with the Fashion Flower collection and lucky I did as this sold out on the UK site that same day! Subtle, pretty colour that is appropriate for work and going out alike. The only downside is that it doesn't do teeth the most justice with a tendency to make them look a little yellow but it works with my pale …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/08/2011

As a reviewer a few lines down from me, I have this MSF and it is very heavily raspberry-veined meaning the overall colour comes up quite dark compared to other Petticoats. I am quite pale and freckly so a light touch is required with this. It is one of the most shimmery blushes/MSFs that I own but I think that the effect looks expensive! :) Would probably buy again but as I don't use it as …Read more

Ok, I know I should have tried this on before I bought it but online shopping is my weakness! This lipstick has had a heck of a lot of reviews but I would just like to say that if you have any reservations about this being a matte lipstick, try it on as I really, really disliked this finish. The matte finish made the lippy look cheap IMO and didn't suit my freckly skin at all.

Product: I went into MAC knowing I definitely wanted this shade after seeing all the great reviews online and even though the SA kept trying to push other blushes such as the Quite Cute LE's I'm glad I stood my ground! I have been looking for a shade like this for a long time. It is buildable, meaning you get a great pop with one swirl but if, like me, you like to have pink, doll-like …Read more

Product: I have tried a few Too Faced products before, but never the eyeshadows. I wasn't hugely impressed however. As people have said before me, the colours are deceiving in the pan, especially 'Satin Sheets' which looks like a nude highlighter with a gold shimmer not the pink you see in the pallette. I think the grey-based colours also look too similar on the skin. The …Read more
