Weirdly enough, the brush end of this pencil fell off for me. I am gentle with my products so I have no idea what happened. It wasn't even the brush itself, it was the plastic casing, maybe a cm up above the brush, which cracked the whole was through and broke off. Really strange.

Lip Treatments - NUXE - Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm with Honey

This is the best lip balm I have tried in a long time. I've been through plenty of lipbalms recently - and had average experiences with them all. Nothing really stood out. This is the first lip product which has really made my lips feel soft and conditioned. Highly recommended.

I really love this foundation. I have combination skin and my nose/T zone does get a little oily but nothing unmanageable. The colour 3.5 is a perfect match for my skin (unlike the NC20 that a MAC MUA matched me with, which came out yellow/orange on me).

This foundation lasts all day, is medium coverage and applies well with my EcoTools foundation brush. I am waiting for my real …

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

I bought this to cover pimples. Under my eyes it tends to crease horribly. It is a little thin to use over skin imperfections and needs to be built up. Because the SA matched me in a shade which goes orange on my skin I feel like an idiot with it built up.

I use an EcoTools airbrush concealer brush to apply it and that works well to blend it in... still, I think for my purpose I may …

This concealer brush is amazing. I used the flat concealer brush from ecotools for a while and it just didn't do it for me. This brush, however, is so dense and the shape is perfect for applying and buffing out liquid concealer. It does the job really well. It was also half the price of the Real Techniques brush that I wanted to buy.

If you need to apply concealer in thin layers …

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Meet Matt(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette

I love this palette. I love the yellow and red shades - they suit me really well. There's a great range of browns. The cream/white is a bit bright - something a teensy bit toned down would have been perfect. As it is, I still tend to use the palette by itself which means it's also easy to use!

Love this - I've started wearing it every day for work. I just tap a finger in and apply that to each cheek and buff it in. You really don't need much but I love the berry coloured flush it leaves. So easy!

Tinted Moisturizer - theBalm Cosmetics - BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer SPF 18

I like this product. It's light, weightless, leaves my skin feeling almost as though no product is on it, and helps to reduce how large my pores look and cover minor blemishes. Unlike foundation, TM does not cling to dry patches of skin, and actually helps to soften skin through the moisturising properties. I do wear moisturiser under this as I don't feel it's quite moisturising …Read more

Eye Primer - theBalm Cosmetics - Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer

5.0

Jul/07/2013

I love everything about this.
To apply, simply squeeze a small amount onto your ring finger and apply all over eyelid. I find a tiny amount works fine. Leave it a minute and then apply your eye makeup as you normally would.
I have worn this twice now. On the first day, I applied it at 6:30 am. After work, at 6:30 pm my eye makeup was still in place. After a few drinks later on that …

Love Balm Jovi! It's almost a one stop palette, containing products for eyes, lips and cheeks.
I love the mix of matte, shimmery and metallic eyeshadows. My favourites are Adagio, Allegro, Alice Copper, Moderato and Rem. Adagio is perfect for a soft highlight and browbone as well as blending. I love the hard-to-dupe yellow brown of Allegro. Rem is a beautiful lid colour.
As for …
