I bought the Hasina 2 after seeing great reviews from gurus online. The purchase is quite pricy when you factor in shipping but I wanted to support indie brands. Most indie brands make their own products except this one - they make theirs in China.

When I received the product I realised it was really reminiscent of those cheap products you get from Aliexpress. Googling the …

This would be HG if it wasn't for the sparkles. I love the consistency, didn't crease in my lines and does colour correct (NC42 - you'd think I'd be too dark but I like it!). The sparkles got on my brushes and in my concealer. Very hard to remove.

Love this natural hair brush - was the first one I ever used. When I went back to my synthetics, I found I had to do a bit more blending and it didn't feel as soft on my eyelids (compared to this brush they were scratchy). I'm upgrading all my brushes to natural hair.

This is a great all-round brush for packing and blending. Quite soft so probably not great for eyeshadow …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - SKIN PERFECTION 3-in - Purifying Micellar Solution

I prefer simple micellar water to this as I feel it cleanses more and moves my makeup better. I feel fresher afterwards. This does feel more like water though, so perhaps those who have had bad reactions to other products could try this.

Can over spill with this packaging versus similar products that have more of a "squeeze" bottle. This one just has a simple opening. Not a …

Pros:
True to claims - Matte, fine mist
Does extend wear
Not sticky
Refreshing

Cons:
Plastic cap on top of pump not very sturdy
Same price as some high end (when you compare per 100mL, so don't be fooled by 'low cost tag')

I've have not tried many sprays except the skindinavia primer spray. I thought was about the same in …

I like this concealer for the coverage, however I felt it ran a little orange for my liking. Prefer my urban decay naked concealer which is also orange but far less noticeable. The orangeness is good if you have terribly dark under eye circles like me and tan skin.

Won't repurchase as it creases more than my UD but is otherwise just as good imo

Concealers - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

The situation: deep-set under eye area with darkness and lots of lines. While the area is oily, it has the tendency to dry out depending on what I put on.

Pros:
Thick but not too creamy - minimises creasing for me.
Lots of product
Applicator good
Good colour range for my skin tone (NC 40-42)

This is the least creasy of the concealers I have tried though …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Waterproof Mascara

Really like this mascara and have been using it for months. Starts off wet like most but dries up to my liking after a few uses. Stops the transfer onto my lashes and the skin around my eyes. The formula seems to hold my curl relatively well, few hours, but that's awesome considering how stubbornly straight my lashes are.

I do like the wand for separation and curl, I will be …

Pigment sucks, some are fine, but mostly terrible.
I bought this because of YouTube reviews from bloggers I trust and because Collection seems to have outstanding products. This may be good for a very young person starting out with makeup - though I'd probably start them on a few makeup geek singles or wet n wild instead of this.

I personally like the packaging because …
