Now this may be somewhat controversial as I have read so many posts with people raving about this product, but I said when I started this blog I will always be honest with my reviews, I bought this a couple of weeks ago, and initially I was really impressed seemed like a really nice product especially from No7 which is a make up brand I have never been overly impressed with in the past. It looked so pretty and swatched really well on my hand.........
But I have to say I just don't like this. I just find its so hard to blend?!...It just sits on top of the skin and no amount of buffing blending etc seems to make any difference? I also used it as a highlighter for the brow bone and it made my eyes really sore. Now this may be due to me having overly sensitive eyes but generally I feel you should be able to use a product like this on that area of you face.
Whats your thoughts on this product???.........x...:0)

So I picked up a couple of nail polishes one from M&S from there new spring pastel collection there really pretty colours but the pale pink/lilac was my favourite, I'm always drawn to the light blues and mint greens but whenever I put them on my nails I just don't like them..... So at £2.50, I picked up the one called "pastel" they go on really well no streaks and the colour is really pretty!
Also I got an Essie nail colour from ASOS www.asos.com in the shade Red Nouveau. I have been looking for a red shade for a while now, I don't really like the standard red nail polish colour I have loads but this one is different it's what I would call a tomato red rather than a pillar box dark red, I have been looking for this shade for a while, and after application I am pleased i bought it. It goes on really well, only needed 2 coats, so yea for Essie polishes....this is my first one....(of many i feel)........:0)...x

Now I'm not new to E.L.F make-up, I first bought from there great website last year, the prices are so reasonable that you cant really go wrong....!.. http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/
That said, I wouldn't say all of the products I have tried have been good, and there are some that I defiantly would not re purchase, all in one concealer, cakey and dried out quickly, lip glosses sticky and do no apply well..... But there brushes are excellent value for money and compare really well to some more expensive ones I have, that tend to shed thier hairs all over your face!!... (MAC 190 you know who I'm talking about!!)
"Coralista" on the left, "Tickled Pink" on the right
So anyway on my quest to build up a varied blush collection 2 E.L.F products caught my eye, from thier the studio collection and go by the names "tickled pink" and "candid coral" these arrived today and I couldn't wait to get home and try them, if your not familiar with E.L.F products there packaging is very similar to NARS plain black simple, and clean, the blushers come with a mirror in the lid, (not very useful for applying blush) , but would be a good one in your hand bag for lip gloss on a night out...:).....On swatching these on the back of my hand neither product seemed to have very much pigmentation but i decided to try them properly when home and was pleasantly surprised. My favourite of the 2 is definitely candid coral, this reminds me of Benefits coralista which has been blogged about lots, but with E.L.F being £3.50 and Benefit £22, need I say more??....... I like this blush it is a pretty coral peachy colour with really pretty gold flecks in it. not at all glittery just leaves a really subtle sheen on the cheeks! a winner I think? "tickled pink" is a nice pink and I'm glad I purchased it, but It is very sheer and maybe more suited to fair skinned lovelies and not darker skins like myself. So to round up I'm pleased with purchases and will look into some more E.L.F products soon..........So what are your thoughts on E.L.F???

Sorry not a great picture!!!...... doesn't do this product justice!! this is a REALLY great pencil, very soft to apply you don't have to work it at all, it just glides straight on, with good pigmentation looks lovely on brown eyes and it has metallic undertones really pretty!!
Well all that's left is to tell you where I purchased this little beauty, and it was Primark!.....have never really thought much about there beauty products before, and wasn't holding out great expectations for this pencil, but I have to say at a price tag of £2 you really should snap one of these up!
