ELF Elements Make Up Compact

I got this compact because I thought the idea of being able to customise it for the different things you would want to carry about. In mine I have a brown and a black eyeshadow, a blush and a lip colour. Now what I didn't like about it was the colour, I don't like white. So a certain someone who is in to art deco (is it even called that?) put a thought in my mind and so I pimped it out. Also got a bit carried away and did my phone! I am not a very arty person at all so wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I think I did alright in the end, what do you think?

Review: Lush - Colour Supplement in Light Pink

What they say ~ Light Pink is one of our lightest supplements it can be blended with any of the others to create the right tint for you. This one is suited to people with pale or pink complexions. It’s made with soya and rice bran oils to care for all skin types. Just mix into your favourite moisturiser for a natural tint or use on its own as a foundation. You can also dot a little around unsightly blemishes for effective coverage.

What I say ~ Well I wouldnt have chosen this colour myself as it seems a little pink for me as I have a yellow undertone to my skin. However that wont affect my review on this product itself. The little jar is an alright size and made of glass which gives it a bit of a expensive feel, I really wanted to love this product with me being a total lushie.
You get 20g of product with is more than I expected, its a nice consistancy on the finger. However I did seem to have a few problems with this product, when I applied it with my fingers it went really streaky. It did that as well when I tried to stipple it on too, left my face feeling really cakey and streaky. I did however manage to get it on my face using a spounge without being streaky, it left quite a sheer finish on my face and wasnt buildable.
I didnt try it as a tinted foundation mixing it with moisturiser although I did try as a under eye concealer which really didnt work as it left me very streaky.

Would I recommend it ~ I would recommend a sample of it yes but not buying it out right without trying a sample first.

Would I buy it again ~ I wouldnt buy this or another coloured supplement.

Review: Lush - It Started With A Kiss

What they say ~ A spicy toffee-apple lip balm with an added touch of red to make the lips look tempting and inviting. It has the crisp bite of red apples, a cheek touch of cinnamon, creamy white chocolate, and silky icing sugar. If Snow White couldn't resist the temptation, you've got no chance!

What I say ~ I wouldnt say that the scent was toffee appley at all, I think that it is more honey scented. It is a nice buildable colour which is actually more of a stain than a balm. Not as pink as it is in the pot which is good as I prefer a red coloiur. At £4.95 it is expensive for what it is but I have a soft spot for both lush and lip balms.

Would I recommend it ~ Its alright, I might do depending on what the person was after.

Would I buy it again ~ I got this for my birthday, but might buy it in the future.

Review: ELF - Tinted Moisturiser Spf 15

What they say ~ SPF 15 formula helps combat premature aging and protects against sun damage while leaving skin radiant and lightly hydrated.

What I say ~ Good that it has a SPF in it. Now I have a split opinion on these products. The ivory one seems to spread easily and go on very well. Where as the apricot beige seems thicker a more concentrated, as if it was to be mixed with something to apply. Admittely ivory is more my shade as the other makes me orange but thats more my fault. The scent is of terrys chocolate orange which is odd but I like it. I dont know if one of my tubes was a dodgy formula or if it was supposed to be like that. Sheer / light coverage which I like for the summer. Tubes will last a fair while and at £1.50 as long you get the right colour its all good!

Would I recommend it ~ I would as long as it was the same sort of formula as the ivory. Not as thick and goopy.

Would I buy it again ~ Yes I would for the summer.

Ivory - 10/10
Apricot Beige - 7/10

Review: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

What they say ~ Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion packaged in a precious, genie-like bottle, challenges any shadow to fade or crease before its time.

What I say ~ Totally amazing product which I do like loads! Its good because it keeps my eyeshadow on for hours where without it it would crease and fade four times quicker! It is about £11.50 at the moment which is expensive but seeing as lasts for well over a year its so worth it. Bad things about it is the shape of the bottle, they have now got a doe foot applicator to try and help with the problem but really they need it in a squirty tube. I had to saw mine in half to get out the last of the product and there was enough there to last a year.

Would I recommend it ~ YES!

Would I buy it again ~ Always!
