I quite like this product. The Lemonaid is by far my favorite, as it covers any discolouration on my eyes and works as a brilliant primer. The Eyebright got very dry and isn't creamy like its meant to be, however works well when I wet it down. The Erase Paste is too dark for me, however works well too. That Gal- I did a review on that separately as I love it! The Boi-ing is just amazing- …Read more

I got this as part of the Confessions of a Concealaholic kit, and I love it. I normally use it when I'm not going to wear much makeup. Has lasted me about a year despite only being a 7.5ml sample. Gives a lovely pink hue on my cheeks. Smells really nice, like fruit (maybe strawberries?) and the consistency is like strawberry mousse- thick, but easily spreadable.
Only con would be the …

I really do like this product. I use the darker shade for bronzing and contouring, the lighter shade for highlighting the tops of my cheeks and my nose, and both to add a bit of colour all over my face.
You get a brush included which doesn't shed at all. This product has lasted me about 2 years and I'm not even finished with it yet. Would defiantly buy again.
Cons: The price …

I wouldn't buy this product again- I really want to love it because of the price and the fact everyone loves it, but I don't. I bought an NC20 and this is far too yellow for me. Probably my fault for buying it online and not at a counter *learnt my lesson*!
The packaging is okay- its an open glass bottle, and I don't really mind the lack of a pump as I shake it and then scoop …

This foundation is too shiny and too yellow-based for me. I bought shade 52 'Vanilla', one of the lightest shades, and it made me look like I had jaundice. Should be alright for people with olive skin tones and dry/normal skin. Its not heavy on my skin, however I can feel it which isn't pleasant.
I don't really like the smell- its smells fruity, but not a natural fruity …

Its a nice product and would work well for people with dry skin, but mine is oily and this only makes me look like I've been in a sauna for an hour. I would give coverage a 2/5 so would be better for people who have good skin who only need a slight amount of pigmentation in their products. It smells quite nice and fresh, and I am going to start using it more to use it up. Cant say whether or …Read more

I have suffered from dark circles for years. This is possibly the best under-eye concealer available. It gives perfect cover so my eyes look refreshed and not surrounded by a dark shadow. I also use on the tops of my cheeks as a highlighter if I cant be bothered to use some of my more expensive highlighter products. Works really well covering redness, and came in very handy on holiday when I …Read more

This is possibly one of the best waterproof mascara's available. It's fragrance free, water and smudge resistant. The brush isn't as big as I expected it would be, but the bristles are spiraled upwards so you can build up bigger lashes. Lasts all day. Only cost me £1.99 in Boots.
Only problems are that its hard to get off (due to being water resistant).
