    Foundation: - Covergirl clean, but I buoght Mabelline's mousse yesterday (thank you SCC!) and I absoutly love it, its so light!

    Powder: - n/a

    Blush/Bronzer: - Physicians formula http://www.physiciansformula.com/detail_list.asp?itemid=03534&scene=BLUSHES&categorid=112 Its perfect color! Rarely looks like I'm wearing blush, just natural color

    Mascara: - Whatever is on sale. Currently I have Ulta brand, some revelon one and something else... I never notice much difference in them.

    Lip Gloss: - Anything and everythying. I love revelons super lusterious lip gloss. I also have a thing of 68 colors of lip gloss from ulta. Several of their lipsticks. COvergirls long lasting one with the clear top coat, another one of their shiny one and about half a dozen other things

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - I wear cg's perfect point. I love the blender, doesn't make you look like you've been punched in the face or like a white trash hooker that wears it inside the eyes, all blunt and nasty. I also have tons of eyeshadow. All ulta, I get them in the big box sets. I have on of 68 colors and another of 24. They last long and look georgous. I only wear neutral colors though, I'm not bold enough to venture outside the norm.

    Fake tan: - N/A

    Other: - sally hansens chapped lip repair. It is a godsend. Physicians formula also make a to die for zit cover up.

    Foundation: - Rimmel something. I really couldn't tell you what it's called, stay matte or something of the sort?

    Powder: - Loose - Colour S (crappy beauty salon brand). Stole it form my college kit. Pressed - Avon ColourTrend powder compact.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Don't wear it regualarly. Steal it form my college kit if I ever do want it. So Colour S again

    Mascara: - Rimmel. Again the name escapes me but it has a curved brush.

    Lip Gloss: - Avon glazewear or Avon colour

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Eyeshadows vary. Avon, Rimmel, Colour S mainly as above. Eyeliner is Rimmel?avon, depending on which I'm using/can find.

    Fake tan: - Dove misturizer stuff if I ever use it. I use the sunbeds at college though normally, but not getting into the habit now we're back yet!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I wear rimmel foundation, can't remember what it's called but it's for dry skin.

    I wear either Clinique pretty lasges or rimmel with the funny wand mascara.

    I used to wear rimmel liquid eye liner 'til I tried this new on the other day and now I will continue to use that.

    Bourjois or barry m eye dazzle dust for eye shadow.

    A bit of touche elclait (sp?) YSL concealer very rarely.

    Nivea sun spray fake tan.

    All are perfect for me.

    I hardly wear lipstick but if I do I wear Rimmel Asia. recently a make up artist told me off for not wearing lipstick and making the best of my perfect shaped - cupid's bow lips :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Foundation: - In winter I use Maybelline mousse, in summer I usually only wear it at night so I just use this cheapy Natural Collection one mixed with Pond's cream baby!

    Powder: - Don't use.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Too many to mention. My all-time favourite is this Body Shop one which looks like a lipgloss stick and is a stain for lips and cheeks :heart:

    Mascara: - A red tube by Maybelline, not sure what it's called.

    Lip Gloss: - Natural/classic Labello lipsalve. Or a red matte lipstick by No.7 when I feel a bit vampy [which I've had for about fifty years, inherited from my mother when she realised she was a bit old for dracula lips]

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Usually No.7, the only make up item I spend a lot of money on as the cheap one always make me look like I've been weeping at a five day funeral.

    Fake tan: - I'm pale and interesting ;)

    Other: - N/A

    I wouldn't really recommend any of them, per se, as they're all just the old shit I've had lying about for years. I can't bring myself to shell out on make up very often (except blusher :love: ) - it's sooo expensive.

    Foundation: - MaxFactor Hypersmooth. Got a lot of oil in it, but gives good coverage. Or the other MaxFactor one that has 2 halves.

    Powder: - Maybelline. I use the palest one and it still makes me go orange.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Maybelline. I don't pay much attention to what make of blusher. I just find a pink one and heap it on.

    Mascara: - Maybelline Intense XXL. It's all cloggy and makes them look short. Should really shell out for some better stuff.

    Lip Gloss: - My lips are really sensitive so i tend not to use any lip stuff.

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Revlon/No7/Barry M (I wear 5 different colour eyeshadows)

    Fake tan: - Nooooo. I look orange enough.

    Other: - I use highlighter on my cheeks. Can't remember what make.

    Foundation: - MAC, I've used it for years, so 9/10 my only complaint is the coating they use on the lids - it peels off and looks well mingin.

    Powder: - Chanel Loose, it's gorgeous 10/10 and Chanel Compact - 10/10. Stays on all day with just a hint of a retouch.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Benefit blusher, blends well - 10/10.

    Mascara: - Chanel Inimitable - does exactly what it claims to do. 10/10.

    Lip Gloss: - (Lip Balm) Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip treatment 10/10 smells devine.

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Eyeshadow, Chanel 10/10 - stays on all day, one tiny block lasts forever. Liquid eyeliner - Chanel, again 9/10 gorgeous, easy to apply but doesn't stay put for long.

    Fake tan: - Don't use the stuff ta.

    Other: YSL Touche Eclat 5/10 - doesn't do a lot. MAC Lipstick in Myth - 8/10 - is too matte and so needs to be applied and blended a lot.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Foundation: - I've got a selection, but my current favourites are Rimmel Recover for sheerness and a Benefit playstick for plastering myself (not often). I've got a Maybelline mousse one, and it works ok in the summer (too orangey in the winter) but I can only wear it on certain parts of my face cause it doesn't get on with my dry skin areas. Better than concealer for undereyes though.

    Powder: - Collection 2000 3 in 1 stuff. Chuck the sponge and flick it on lightly with a soft brush. Fantastic stuff. I shit you not, the powder I had before was MAC and this works 10 times better on me.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Maybelline mousse blusher or Ruby & Millie sheer gel stick one.

    Mascara: - Maybelline great lash waterproof for every day, Max Factor Masterpiece for going out.

    Lip Gloss: - liquid lipstick from that cheapy brand in Superdrug (NYC?), sheer moisture lipstick from Collection 2000 or good old cherry chapstick.

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - grey Almay one for day to day, awesome coloured ones from that French brand in bigger Boots (Arcancil?), also Maybelline mouse eye colours. Oh, and the Natural Collection loose powder ones in the teeny pots.

    Fake tan: - No ta. I know I'm a Leeds girl but I have some class.

    Other: undereye brightening concealer from Bourjois. Not sure on the name, but it's quite new and a miracle worker!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Foundation: - Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights tinted moisturiser 8/10 or if that runs out No 7 Stay Perfect foundation (mixed with moisturiser) 7/10

    Powder: - Elizabeth Arden flawless finish loose powder 6/10 and Light Illusions powder highlighter Barbara Daly (tesco) is pretty good for the price 6/10

    Blush/Bronzer: - No 7 high lights illuminating lotion 8/10 I find it just as good as Benefits high beam

    Mascara: - Benefits Plush mascara (black) 8/10 Does not go cloggy or Maybelline Great Lash (brown) 7.5/10

    Lip Gloss: - Most clear lipglosses do me. I am using one from Zara at the moment 6/10

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Eyeshadow. Bobbi Brown Nude on nude eye palette 10/10 well worth the money and Trish McEvoy shadows. Last ages 8/10
    Eye Liner - For everyday use I use satin soft eye pencil in smoky grey from George Asda 8/10 or for a more dramatic look I use my bright eyeshadows wet. does the job for me.

    Fake tan: - I am ginger and that would look wrong

    Other: - Trish McEvoy make up brushes - my cousin bought me a set from NY and I am in love 10/10, YSL Touche Eclait 9/10 an essential for me and MAC Prep and Prime - Improves the way my make up goes on
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Foundation: - YSL Radiance smoothing foundation 8/10, looks good but feels odd...

    Powder: - YSL Matt and radiant pressed powder 10/10, usually wear this on it's own. It feels nice and light.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Benetint 10/10. I use this on my lips too! Benefit dandilion and georgia are also fab.

    Mascara: - Using the new Loreal one at the moment. 7/10 Forget it's name. Not sure about the super flexi wand yet.

    Lip Gloss: - burt bees 10/10

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - Various by clinique. All fab. 10/10

    Fake tan: - No thanks!

    Other: - YSL touche eclat. 9/10. Still have those shadows but it works sooooo much better than all the others.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Foundation: - L'oreal True Match or Maybelline Mousse, I'm preferring the mousse at the moments because its easier to apply, so i'll give it an 8

    Powder: - L'oreal True Match again, 9 this time because it dosent 'look' powery if you get my jist.

    Blush/Bronzer: - Bourjois blusher in Rose D'Or which im gonna give a 9, and bronzing balls, I think theyre natural collection at Boots, but they're the best ive found, they get an 8

    Mascara: - Rimmel Extreme volume in Extreme black (or something) pretty darn good, I'll give it an 8, i'll be trying the L'oreal telescope one when this ones finished.

    Lip Gloss: - L'ancome Juicy tubes 10/10 Is all I can say

    Eye Shadow/Liner: - All sorts of eyeshadows, mainly Bourjois little pots, which I LOVE 10/10

    Fake tan: - L'oreal Sublime Bronze airbrush stuff, but I havent been fake tanning for a while, I'll give it a 7/10

    Other: - Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner pencil 10/10

    Thats harsh, what are you really going to do with a tube of lip gloss, mix it with some foundation and terrorize some patchy skinned woman. They stole all my stuff not too long ago. I still stick by that mascara is not a liquid, gel or lotion.

    I can't remember the names off hand, I got one of the twist ones, miracle and a mauvey one but I can't remember its name.

    I think it is interesting that there aren't many products that are common to everyone, except perhaps that Mabelline Mousse, which just slid straight off my face when I tried it...

    Lips: I bought some of the revelon color stay the other day and tried it on last night. THe stuff is like freaking paint! It really does last, and last and last... Its a gloss but dries real quick and ends up being like a lipstick, with a clear top coat over it to keep the shine, it was absoutly georgous!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    The missus normally goes for boujoir (sp?) or mac stuff for everything
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    someone bought me some of that maybelline mousse. It suits me and feels lovely but you can't really wear foundation without a whole heap of other stuff and I cba... I have various makes in all those things, none of which I wear, apart from fake tan, which nobody needs.
