Precise felt tip, opaque in one stroke and stays put!

I adore this liner, the precise felt tip make for accurate lines. One stroke gives you an opaque colour in one go. It sets nicely after application and stays put. Choose black for an everyday colour but venture out into a colour like the gold for a bit of bling for your eyes.

Coral craze!

If you want a colour to join the coral craze then this is the one! It's really pigmented and glides on smoothly onto the lips. For more information and swatches see: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Amazing shimmery goodness!

These are really lovely. The texture feels more like cream eyeshadow but you can apply it like you would a regular powder eyeshadow. Feel free though to you you hand to smudge these onto the eyelid. The pigmentation of these colours are great and a little goes a long way. I dont get any creasing and the colour looks vibrant at the end of my 8 hour day. Even though I love the coloured shades, Bronzed Taupe is my favourite! The only downside I saw was a small amount of fallout. <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Hot pink!

This lipstick is true to the name, it's really smooth and creamy and glides on the lips with ease. Of course it goes with saying that due to the creaminess it is not long lasting. However, if you are looking for a nice bright pop of colour at an inexpensive price then give these a try. The colour Last night is a really loudmouth hot pink that pairs great with a brown smoky eye and long lashes. See my last night look: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Bright bold colour- NYX Matte lipstick in Summer Breeze

I love the bright bold colour that is Summer breeze. The matte texture goes on smooth enough but isn't totally drying but still not moisturizing either. For more information and swatches check out my blog link: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Cucumbers and Cashmere- New colours

OMG! I love these two new shades of JEP. They are creamy and pigmented colours. I do get some creasing with my lids so I usually use them as bases with a coordinating colour on top. Currently pairing Cucumber JEP with MAC lucky green! For more info: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Love this Loudmouth orange!

This is the perfect shade to go with the Tangerine Tango theme this year without breaking the bank! It's smooth and pigmented in one swipe. Last for a long time and goes with a neutral look. This should be the centre of attention for your look For more info: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Not pigmented

It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off. However, the colours were all so sheer, I kept building over the initial swatch to get more colour with very little change. The pink blush is soft with gold sparkle and reminds me of an extremely sheerer version of the milani luminous. The highlighter shade had chunky glitter in it For more info check my blog: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Nars Gaiety blush is cool

It’s a cool tone soft pink but I found I was still able to pull it off with my very warm skin tone and medium dark complexion. I just needed to apply a bit more to the apples of my cheeks. On its own it is pigmented, but not overly so and I could detect some shimmer in it. More info on my blog: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>

Love colour & shine; Hate Staining of Mexican Rose

This review is for Mexican Rose from the NARS Spring 2012 collection. I really love the gloss and colour. It's really pigmented and glides on smoothly to lips. But this shade stains badly. I need to use a makeup remover to get it off and even then i had slight stains. Full review on my blog: <a href='' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'></a>
