Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Heartless (Venomous Villains)

5.0

Jan/29/2011

This red is quite amazing. Normally I'm a Russian Red kind of lass or a Revlon Really Red, but this one is a stand alone unique colour. It is really rather a sweet red rather than a sultry one. It has connotations of Apples and Cherries rather than screen sirens.
It has a sheen, which softens it. What is really amazing is that you can really utilize the consistancy for different …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam IV

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

This was the first Viva Glam lipstick I've brought and I must say it is definately my favourite from that range.
The colour tricked me, I took it home thinking it to be more of a red, when it magically got much pinker. It is a beautiful rosey blush not too dissimilar form my natural lip colour. With a frosty shummer. I often worry if it isn't a little too blue toned for me, but …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

This product just did not impress me much. I had only really dabbled with liquid eyeliner before this, but thought I might try to recreate a retro catseye effect. So I brought this little number, and boy what a mistake.

The wand is far too short, which is supposed to make it easier to control but just made the whole process far too awkward. The brush is not as precise as I had hoped …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Superslick Signature Blue

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

As far as liquid eyeliners go, this is magic. It's a lovely inky navy colour that is subtle and created a really dynamic contrast with the warmth of brown eyes. I also love how subtle the colour is, the blue only really hints when eyes are open in normal light but beware it turnes very blue in harsher light.
Therefore my one gripe is that it can be a bit limiting to which eyeshadows …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Shadestick - Corn

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

I was completely new to MAC when I tried both Corn and Lucky Jade shadesticks. They were a beautiful concentration of colours that were vibrant, strong, and really helped me through my awkward high school makeup phases. One lick of eyeliner and mascara for the safe pretty eye.

But now being older and (a little MAC wiser) I would say there are more adventurous options. I still have my …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick - Really Red

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

This lipstick is my fail safe glamourous siren red. It's the perfect deep red, smoldering and not for the faint of heart. It has amazing sticking power, to the point of being tricky to get off by the end of the night which means I trust it all day and night.
Very matte and strong colour, it doesn't need too many coats or it ends up feeling heavy on the lips. I would say it's …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Dark Deed

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

What a beautiful striking colour. I had wanted a really dark colour for ages, and had tried on MAC's Cyber and then my prayers were answered with Dark Deeds. Purpley, burgandy, warm and really forgiving on my dark features, in fact it intensified them. I was worried I would look like a little girl wearing mummy's lipstick but it looks really sophisticated and chic. I always get …Read more

This was the first paintpot I ever tried and I must say it is lovely and ever so handy. Great on its own with a touch of eye liner and a sweep of mascara it looks so natural yet its an awesome base to build upon. Makes everything stay for ages. Can't really say anything bad about this one!

Why oh why does this not last longer?! It's absolutely lovely, but doesnt seem to stick around long enough to get out of the house. I love it to bits bit until they can figure out a way of making it stick around, il look elsewhere for a Jasmine scent.

Lips - ANNA SUI - Lip Rouge Jar #001

5.0

Mar/06/2009

Love this product! I have naturally quite pink lips so it has the effect of lipstick except its lighter and has a dewey kind of effect. Also very nice ontop of lipstick in the middle of the lip to plump out lips a little more. And who can resist that decadent smell of roses! Worth the price and the jar is reusable if you want to make a new colour and need a pretty package.
