Post all of you positive reviews and recommendations for all make-up products in this thread.

Make the product name the first sentence so it is clear and then write your review underneath.

Too Faced duo shadows. They are lovely! I don't know if they're the same quality as the single ones(I know UD normal shadows and their dluxe shadows aren't), so I won't review them.

I have 3 different ones, Steel Magnolias, Cocoa Lily, and Lovey Dovey(I use the darker for my eye brows, occasionally.

*out of 5*
color: 5! *What you see is what you get!
stay power: 3.5 *Sometimes have to re-apply sometime in the day
quality: 5! *So soft and smooth, goes on great! You don't have to rub the brush in, just one stroke and you have enough!

____________________________________________________

Too Faced Lash Injection

Lash length: 5 *Makes my lashes HUGE! And I have very short eye lashes!
Color: 4 *Black is very black, but not DOOM black that I'd like, lol!
Stay Power: 5! *Even after I have washed all my makeup off, it still isn't all gone! Sometimes need to gently pull off with my fingers(WHILE WET! Don't want to pull pout any lashes)

____________________________________________________

All I got for now, but I just need to dig through my make up later! Don't remember all I have. And I'm not gonna bother reviewing my mac eye shadows.

fyrinnae liquid eyeliner
finally a liquid eyeliner that doesn't flake off! it's easy to apply and remove although it has no problem staying on all day. it dries to an almost powder finish.

maybelline the colossal volum' express mascara
doesn't flake, doesn't clump, smells good, doesn't burn the eyes, removes easily, gives me really long and full lashes.

medusa's makeup
everything i have bought from them has been amazing. their shadows and eye dusts are brilliantly pigmented.

barry m dazzle dust
i only own one of them but i adore it. a little goes a long way so you don't have to cake it on to get deep, bright color.

urban decay big fatty mascara

one of the only mascaras I've found that doesn't clump on me! the brush is HUGE compared to some, and took me a little getting used to (i.e. not getting it on my eyelids!) but I love it.

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Makes my eyeshadows stay on forever!

Avon's Daring Definition
Like a gel version of liquid eyeliner which you apply with a brush. Only it doesn't run when my eyes get soggy and stays on all day even without UDPP

Barry M Dazzle Dust
Quite cheap, good selection of colours, nice and bright.
Only problem I have with it is that if I dont put UDPP on first it tends to rub off, but with the PP tis fine!

Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eyeshadow
this is by far my favorite eyeshadow now. Im trying to collect all the colors. They have just the perfect amount of sparkle and go on so nicely. (I wear them dry). I highly reccomend the shade Tempest Bronze.

Lash Blast Mascara
i would seriously never buy another mascara after this one, its amazing!!! makes my lashes look so long and so nice and dark.

Revlon "Dark Pleasures" nail polish in Steel-etto

This could very well be the only nail polish I've ever owned that hasn't chipped within a day of being applied! I put it on last Thursday evening and it still looks as though it has been freshly applied. I didn't use a top coat or anything, I just applied one layer (which was enough). It's an excellent colour too. I hope the rest of their nail polishes are as good as this!

One of the few that stays very glossy and it's so cheap.

L'Oreal Double Extension Mascara

This stuff is great, doesn't clog up the lashes, no clumps. Yet it gives a fake lash effect, and doesn't come off unless you use warm water - great stuff!! :P

Barry M, dazzle Dust, and Fine Glitter dust
I cant say enough good things about this product, when I did my course in stage make-up we always used this brand, it stays on for hours and if applied right doesn’t smudge (I even have a hard time washing it off!) don’t let the size of the pots put you off either, I’ve got a pot that’s lasted me 3 years @_@;

Barry M Liquid Eyeliner Black.
Awesome again, doesn’t smudge, doesn’t wash off! lol only problem is it tends to dry up easily, so don’t leave the cap off for very long!

Barry M liquid eyeliner in Blue/turquoise
same as above, only not AS blue as they lead you to believe, I haven’t tried the other colours yet so I guess it could just be the turquoise/blue, as they do a royal blue as well.

Barry M Super soft eye crayon in Black
is VERY black, covers well and holds well, after a few hours you may need to re-apply though, you get a allot for your money too as the pencil is huge!

Barry M intense black water proof mascara.

lasted even in swimming pool, didn’t run at all, can’t wash it off! does tend to go clumpy very quickly so again try not to leave it un-capped for too long.

Barry M sky blue Lengthening mascara.
wonderful, made my lashes very long, covers well and doesn’t clump up, but isn’t as blue as it looks, once its on your lashes.


Boots Natural collection Manga & Papaya coloured lip gloss.
Smells greats (tastes not so great lol) leaves a lovely glittery shine to lips, and keeps them well moisturised.

MAC Fluid Studio Fix

It's the only foundation that actually does what it's supposed to, it doesn't make me break out like crazy and it comes in a good range of colors which is good because I have a hard time finding shades that match my skin tone.

MAC Pro Lash Mascara

This is just simply the best mascara I've ever tried.

O.P.I. Nailpolish

Though it still chips off pretty fast, it stays on the longest and is the best nailpolish that I have ever used. It also comes in a huge range of colors.

Victorias Secret Lip Palettes and Gloss

I LOVE the VS lip palette that I have! It makes your lips look great! The lip glosses are VERY sticky so if you can't handle stickiness than the VS gloss isn't for you.

MAC Lipstick and Lipglass

So many colors to choose from and they stay on and don't dry out my lips. I also love the fact that they have matte, shiny, etc...

Too Faced Lip Of Luxury

AMAZING color and it stays on and moisturizes.

Too Faced Lash Injection

This stuff smells awesome, very fruity and works so well. It doesn't irritate my eyes like cheap mascara does.

maybelline mineral makeup

this is my first experience with mineral foundation but it's absolutely wicked! i don't like heavy foundation but this goes on like a light powder with the coverage of a good foundation...and at £8 odd it's seriously worth it!

rimmel exaggerate liquid eyeliner

takes a bit of practise but i love this liquid eyeliner and literally wear it every day

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

I love this stuff, really brings shadow's to their true potential and keeps them on all day.

Barry M Dazzle Dusts

Not much without afore mentioned base I find, but are BRILLIANT once ready based. Really good, vibrant colours and very good for the price. Also, as someone else said, a little really does go a long way.

Collection 2000 Dazzle Me Dusts

I'm so, so taken with these, absolutely awesome, £2.99 a pot, you get a LOT and the quality is easily as good as Barry M. Total convert :D

maybelline mineral power concealer
it doesn't get patchy or gunky when my skin gets oily and it doesn't make my foundation flake like the last concealer i tried. it also works really well as an eye shadow primer. when i use it as a shadow base it's easier to rub out creases and mistakes.

Clinique brush on liner
I have this in true black, and I love it! It doesn't smell, goes on smooth and stays on really well, even without a primer/base.

Prescriptives

The FIRST company I've found who actually have two separate rows of 'cool' colour and 'warm' colour foundations! (The chart looks a bit like one of those Dulux colour chart things, with one colour ranging from pale to dark and then another slightly different colour ranging through the same shades..)

Before this, I've always had to just go for the lightest colour possible in any range and hope.. but they're ALWAYS too yellow for my skin! They're pale enough, some of them, but the tone is just too warm for me.

So! I've now discovered the lightest shade of Prescriptives 'cool' foundation (which has a pinkish base rather than a yellow base) and it's absolutely perfect! It goes on smoothly and looks sooooo natural :)

Only thing is, it's not cheap! ~£27 a bottle is a bit more than the £21.50 I'm used to spending, but it really is worth it to have a foundation that actually matches my skin!

Larenim loose eyeshadows

I bought ice princess and type o(from their goth lines) both colors are really intense and go on beautiful. Type O is a nice red, though it is a little rust colored, not as pure red as I would have liked(anyone know where to find a good pure red?)

Ice princess is a really nice shiny bright blue. I haven't used it on my eyes yet, but I will today, I'll post a picture
