SKIN TYPE: Combination leaning dry, NC20
CHANEL POUDRE SHADE: Clair 020

I picked this up duty-free for around £25 making it terrific value. The pot is very large, containing 30g/1oz of product and I'm sure it's going to last for at least a year. You only need a very small amount of product to set your foundation.

My current HG foundation is Chanel …

This is a really lovely product. I'm a neutral NC20 and wore this in 3 (Doree) as I was a little more tanned at the time. The shades are very forgiving and blendable; this colour was slightly too dark but it didn't look orange or patchy. I've found TMs tend to feel a little greasy, especially in the heat, but this was super-comfortable and light whilst evening out my skin and …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Back in the Saddle

I adore this colour. I borrowed it from my mother's collection and am going to be very sad when it runs out. It's a tan coral peach with a very muted gold shimmer. It's not sparkly, just shimmery enough to avoid looking dull. The older OPI formulas seem superior to the current ones: this shade is remarkably long-wearing and chip-resistant (5+ days, no problem). Very flattering …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Moisture Tint SPF15 [DISCONTINUED]

NC15, bought this in Light. It's a very pale shade and easily worked for me when I was paler in the winter. I have dry/combination skin and found the matte formula quite drying; it settled in dry patches, reddening and accentuating them slightly. The coverage is poor: it doesn't even my skin tone out. The texture is strangely chalky and the finish almost powdery, and doesn't …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pigment in Sweet Sienna [DISCONTINUED]

This colour works very well used on its own for a simple look. Especially striking with a black liquid line.

Applied wet, it's very intense and also makes a good liner. As a sheer (dry) sweep, it's a little wishy-washy and looks almost glittery.

It's quite neutral, which I was surprised by. Very pretty on my NC15/green eyes.

Would love to …

I'm NC15 in MAC and bought this in Fair Isle (pictured above). It's a good colour match; the shade selection for pale skins is extensive.

The packaging is quite pretty although I agree with previous reviewers: the screw top is slightly inconvenient. As always, the enclosed sponge puff is quite useless. I applied this with a kabuki brush for best results.

The …

<html>Current HG formula. I have combination/dry skin, prone to eczema and small breakouts, NC15 with neutral undertones. In Silk Creme I wear Cream Ivory - the selection for fair skins is excellent; there is even a paler shade (Soft Ivory) which may come in handy in winter. This is absolutely the best colour match I have found.

Mascara - Dior - Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara

May/10/2010

I hated this to start with. I have naturally full, slightly curled lashes and this mascara made them look a clumpy mess. I could not get it to work for me which was particularly frustrating given the price. However, after forgetting about it for a month, I tried again and it seems to have dried out a tiny bit, meaning it's much easier to work with. It no longer smudges, doesn't …Read more

Wonderful product. The scent is gentle and natural but doesn't linger; consistency is creamy but not greasy. Doesn't drag when applying. Sinks right in and feels so smooth. I keep it in the fridge for a cooling effect. This also prolongs its life as one pot lasts me for six months, so it's well worth the price. It hasn't caused any irritation for my eczema-prone …Read more
