Polishes - OPI - Gouda Gouda Two Shoes

My absolute favourite nail polish! I usually do three coats to get it really shiny but two would probably do. Not too thick or too thin. Most gorgeous colour which is literally always appropriate - work, evening things, parties, whatever.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara

4.0

Not as good as the original High Impact because the bristles are too short so it makes all my lashes clump together. I much prefer longer bristles and not so keen on the head being made of plastic - much prefer proper bristly brushes. The volume provided by this mascara is impressive but no more so than the original High Impact mascara. Get that one instead!

Rouge Laque number 9 is my absolute favourite lip product. Literally every time I wear it I get compliments.
I love the applicator, it's huge but because of the pointy tip you can still be precise. The bottle is pretty and the clear window on the side means not only can you see which colour it is (for those lucky enough to own multiple shades!) but you can also see how much is left in …

I have it in 400 - a true dark red. Absolutely amazing finish and long lasting (it comes off on cups etc. but the lips don't look faded at all)
Handy doe foot applicator, better than a brush but not as good, in my opinion, as the YSL Glossy Vernis one which is wider and flat.
My only problem is that the corners of my lips get very dry after removing this as it does take a lot of …

Eye Shadow - shu uemura - G White Gold 311

I love love love the effect this shadow gives, it's not opaque it just adds some dainty glitter (in the words of London Makeup Girl it's like a topcoat for the eyes) but it doesn't stay on all that long (admittedly I haven't tried it with a primer yet)
I said I wouldn't repurchase but that's because I don't imagine I'll ever reach the bottom of this …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Plushglass in Ample Pink

Standard cute every day nude-pink. Very flattering on pale skin and nice tingly feeling when you apply it. A bit too expensive to justify buying again when there are so many similar shades out there.

Great coverage and a natural looking finish. Long lasting but that is annoying when you want to wash your face and it won't come off. The pan is much deeper than MAC eyeshadow pans and lasts a really really long time, I've had mine for a year and I'm half way through it.

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Matte Eyeshadow in Perversion

My favourite matte black, better in my opinion than MAC Carbon. Needs primer potion (as with every UD shadow) but it's worth it. Low mark for packaging as its uglier than the packaging for the non-matte shadows.

This colour is so pretty with tons and tons of glitter but even with primer potion it is all over your cheeks within an hour. Go for the shadow stick version which is exactly the same but without this issue - I use it alll the time.

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Matte Eyeshadow in ABC Gum

The Matte Shadow packaging is so not as pretty as the regular Shadow packaging which is a shame. The actual colour is very pretty, a warm apricot beige but the matte finish is not very flattering when applied over a larger area and also not very good without primer potion or similar. I use it just around my lash line when I can't be bothered to look "done up", but there are …Read more
