Christmas Make Up : First Impressions

Hey Hey Hey,
Being the make-up crazed gal I am, I recieved a lot of make-up this christmas ! Some was choosen for me by my friends and family and other items I bought for myself with my christmas money :) I have not had enough to use the products that much but I thought I would write my frist impressions:


Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Doundation in "Vanilla 1":-  This was one of the items I bought for myself. I am a huge fun of the concealer and had heard good thing about the foundation. The main thing I have found is that it is quite a bit to dark (but is the lighest shade offered), because of this it needs a lot of blending to look, well, normal. The coverage is good but it leaves a little tack on the skin however it does have a matte finnish which i like.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in "Light Porcelain 004":- A old favourite and my friends know this !

Avon Ideal Flawless Matte Mousse Foundation in "Nude" :- My first impression of this is that it has a odd texture, it is not really very "mousse" like it is more like a blam... It is hard to describe but the is thicker and smoother than expected. The other things is that it has a very light coverage which im not a fan of in foundations, so, im not sure if I will get much use of of it.

Bobbi Brown Corrector in "Light Bisque" :- I love this product so much it is 100% essential for me which is why I asked for it.

Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher in "Sensation 5" :-  This is a lovely light pink blush that has quite a lot of sheen in it. The colour pay of is not that great it provides a very light wash but the glow is lovley.


Make Up Academy Eyeshadow Palette in " Glitter Ball" :- I have a few of the MUA palette's and they are very good quality for the money. This one is no diffrent. It contains no matte colours (as the name states) a few of the colours are fairly nude and everyday but most are rather bright therefore you could create a variety of looks.

Fashionista Palette:- These paletts allow you to choose your own shades of both eyeshadow and blusher. The shades I got in eyeshadow are "Gold Rush, 4" and "Nude Glimmer, 19", the blush shades are "Amber Glow, 4" and "London". These products are really nicely pigmented and the colours and diffrent from stuff I have already. The other great thing about these palette's is that you can pop the shades in and out.

MAC Paint Pot in "Bare Study" :- I really wanted a paint pot as I had heard so much good stuff about them and it didnt take me long to choose this colour. It is a really nude tone that can be worn alone or as a base to other shadows. It is really easy to apply and I also love the gold undertones which warm it up so that you can wear it alone.

Collection Multiplier Mascara :- This is a rubber brush mascara not too unlike the skyscraper mascara, but better !! It does an amazing job and creating lengh and volume but still looks very natural.

Benefit They're Real Mascara :- Oh yes !! I asked for this after hearing all the hype and in all honesty im not sure it is worth it. Yes, its does provide lengh but I also find that it it makes my lashes looks very few and far between and is rather clumby.


Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "Crush" and "Honey" :- I was given "Crush" as a gift and loved it so much I bought "Honey". These are realy conditioning on the lips and the colours are pigmented and long lasting. I really dont have a bad word to say.

Revlon Lip Butter in "Pink Truffle" :- I have had a bit of a chage of heart about these recently and I think "Pink Truffle" is my new favourite colour. I wont rattle on about these as everyone and their third cousin knows about them.

MAC Viva Glam V in :- I wanted to invest in a nude MAC lipstick that I could throw on when every I was in a hurry and not have to worry. This is perfect because it is a true "your lips but better" colour and it had a nice sheen and soft glitter to it that means you need a gloss.

Sleek Pout Polish in "Powder Pink 942" :- I really love this lip balm as it is conditioning and a lovely colour. I like this both on it own when im having a low key day and to prep my lips before lipsticks.

Sleek Pout Paint in "Port 159" :- This is a lot brighter than it looks in the tube it is infact bright fushia pink !! It is so pigments that you need a tiny dot to cover your entire lip, this will last a life time !!
