I bought this because of all the glowing reviews but I really didn't like this brush. When I applied blusher it would go on streaky and didn't blend blush well. It was ok not rough but not the softest brush i've used thats why i haven't given it one star but two Maybe its just me- blush brushes all seem to be paddle shaped (like a thicker foundation brush) and i prefer the old …Read more

Mascara - Bourjois - Volume Glamour Ultra Curl

Bought this by mistake usually use volume glamour. This had a curved wand. The formula seems to be the same but i didn't find the curved wand did anything different from the normal wand, plus the wand broke after a weeks use- this has never happened to me in the 17 years of applying mascara. I'll be going back for the plain volume gamour- if you want curls buy an eyelash curler it will …Read more

I originally bought this eyeshadow to use on the crease, but it was a warmer brown than i expected. I now use it as a matt bronzer, the red tones warm up my skin and the shade is definately brown and browner than most bronzers I compared this to in Boots. It definately shows up on my olive skin but looks very natural/subtle. The price is a bargin as well!

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Cream Shadow in Dawn

I selected this shade after reading reviews on makeupalley, since it sounded like it would apply well. I would call this a beige-gold. The consistency of this cream shadow is different to any other cream shadows I have ever tried it's drier and harder so you need the warmth of your finger to apply it. I love that it gives a natural look and would look good on any skintone. You could also …Read more

Eye Primer - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Eyeshadow Primer [DISCONTINUED]

I usually dab this on with the doe foot applicator but once I used my fingers and I understood what some of the other reviewers were saying- it feels really oily and a bit icky (so i try not to touch it) It's counter intutive that you would put on something oily to eliminate the effects of oily eyelids- but it actually works! I first tried it for a friends birthday. Usually I expect my eye …Read more

This brush is excellent. I have small eyes and small space between eye and eyebrow- and this is a smaller, thinner crease brush- it allows precise blending of colour in the crease without blending it all into one muddy patch that spreads over your whole eyelid and cheek like sone thicker crease brushes can do. This is well made, without shedding once. I use a brush guard to retain the shape. I …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Super Slim Eyeliner - Intense black

I created a different category as the nib of the felt tip sounds alot thiner, thus allowing you to be really precicise when lining. It's very quick and easy to apply. I get thiner lines than using a standard liquid eyeliner The price is great for such a wonderful product. It's a very pigmented black which doesn't fade and is long lasting. (I'm not sure it holds up in hot …Read more

I hated this brush. Why? because it hurts when you use this! it's like poking yourself in the eye.
The bristles are firm and stiff-perhaps that's needed for an eyeliner brush but this was so stiff it hurt. It was scratchy as well. I bought this to push line/tight line my eyes (effectively pushing the eyeshadow into lash line or using the flat of the brush to stamp a line so you …

I got this free with my first E.L.F purchase. Rather than impressing me I was really disappointed. At the time I was looking for a nice matt beige/neutal eyeshadow (tried sleek in the end) and used the peach eyeshadow first. It disappeared one hour after applying- this was indoors at home on a cool day it wasn't like the heat melted it or anything. I used the golds too and it was the same …Read more

This is a good cream eyeshadow, it stayed on all day without primer.
I bought this as an alternative to the bourjois cream eyeshadows which made my eye lids sting. This is hypo-allegenic and i had no trouble it's very gentle on my lids.
I bought this a year or maybe 18 months ago and because of the tube packaging it hasn't dried out at all and appllies evenly on the lid …
