Palettes - Make up Academy - MUA Starry Night Palette

3.0

Jul/31/2015

I would only repurchase because I particularly like the black eyeshadow in the top right hand corner. I got my palette a few years ago so it didn't come with shade names, but for me, that black eyeshadow alone is worth the GBP 4. I have a few of these MUA palettes but this black shade is the nicest out of all the blacks that MUA produces.

The rest of the colours feel slightly …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner - Blacktrack

Jun/20/2009

I've been using this product as an everyday eyeliner for a year, and so far it's worked really, really well. It's easy to apply with any fine/small tipped brush, and I love how I can correct mistakes with the tip of my pinkie without it smudging. Also, I find this stuff lasts on my eyes much, much longer for me - compared to MAC kohl pencils. However, it should be noted that I do …Read more

Body Scrubs - The Body Shop - Africa Spa Body Salt Scrub

I was given a huge jar of this stuff as a Christmas present and I must say that it rocks!
Leaves skin super smooth and soft, doesn't sting my sensitive skin, and smells great too. I use it whenever my skin gets really dry, or whenever I feel like treating myself with something luxurious. You get quite a lot of product in the jar, and if you limit using it once every few days, it should …

Mascara - BECCA - Ultimate Mascara

Picked this one up a few months ago (since I was curious about the 'tubing' technology buzz taking over the mascara industry) and have been using it exclusively ever since. This stuff coats and seals every lash, making it resistant to smudging. In the humid summer weather, this definitely comes in handy! Ever since the first day - no flaking or smudging whatsoever. Plus, it washes off …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Refined [DISCONTINUED]

May/18/2009

Thanks to this product, I looked great in all my prom photos this year; this stuff contains light-reflecting pigments which make you look fab on camera. Wasn't too shimmery, and it really made me glow, but not artificial-looking or anything.I applied it with the MAC #129 brush, just on my cheekbones and on my chin. Ended up staying all night, even through the dancing! Too bad it's …Read more

Feb/19/2009

I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I use this daily, as it gives me medium coverage and it feels great on my skin. I'm allergic to perfumed products and have really sensitive skin, and since this foundation is hypoallergenic, I had no problems with breakouts at all so far. It's lightweight so it's great for the tropical climate i live in, so a really fabulous find …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #217 Blending

5.0

Feb/19/2009

This is one of my everyday brushes. It's a great tool and a definite must-have! It's not made for applying colour though, but really does as a great job as a blending brush and remove any obvious lines from your eye make up. THe bristles are extremely soft and feel great on your skin. My experience with MAC brushes also tells me that they last forever if you take care of them, so …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #116 Blush Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2009

Bought this brush a few days ago, and I love it already! I used to apply my liquid foundation with my fingers (being too cheap to buy a proper brush) but it really does make a difference if you apply it with the 116. My face looks more natural and allows the product to really blend in with your face. I don't really use this as a blush brush, as I find it too small to do the job properly, but …Read more

Concealers - REVLON - Beyond Natural Concealer and Highlighters [DISCONTINUED]

This concealer is extremely creamy which makes it super easy to apply. I just pat some under my eyes and it goes on smoothly like a moisturizer. You can't possibly stuff up when applying this product! But then again, it's not for people with dark blemishes, as it's coverage isn't great. But for an everyday natural look, I really would recommend this product.

BUT …

Lip Gloss - Laura Mercier - Rose Glace Lip Gloss

Feb/19/2009

I've got the Petal Glace and I must say, it's one of my favourite everyday products. Aside from the very pretty colour, it goes on really smoothly and looks great even without lipstick. Even if you put too much on it doesn't look or feel heavy at all. The texture is great too - not too sticky! Packaging is great, no spills so far and I've had mine for a few months already …Read more
