I apply before makeup, after makeup, before bed. Super refreshing spray, smells amazing and gives a boost of light moisture and toning to your face. New favourite of mine and couldn’t live without it! Love this brand.” – Abbief88

I was sceptical at first as I have medium dark skin and translucent powders I’ve tried before leave my face pale. This powder does what it says, it shows a bit st first then becomes invisible. I have really oily skin and i see a big difference when I apply it over foundation or concealer. It lasts forever, you don’t need to use a lot.” – Tori

I use this 1-2 times a week, I’m on my fourth bottle, wouldn’t change it for any other peeling. It cleans out my pores, gets rid of blackheads, makes skin super smooth. Also my nose and forhead are much less oily. It does tingle a bit when you apply it but it’s not that bad, it stops after a few seconds.” – zd483

Love this foundation was a die-hard fan of mac studio fix! Then tried this and honestly would NEVER go back, even with the full coverage of this foundation it leaves a natural glow and doesn’t leave my skin dry or feeling heavy duty! Will never use another foundation!!” – Aoife

Literally need the tiniest amount of this to make your brows look incredible, blends so well, so creamy and soft so it’s easy to pick up with the brush, and the colour range is amazing – I got dark brown which is a warmer colour, its not too harsh and blends well with my hair colour” – Anonymouse

I love a colour story like this palette. I love for warm tones especially when there’s reds included. The colour selection is beautiful with a lot of variety in finishes. The packaging is nice and sturdy so I would feel comfortable travelling with it and it has a great sized mirror. The mattes blend seamlessly, the metallica are super soft and really pack a punch. They are also build very nicely. I loooove this palette.” – Smellyface626

I usually use expensive foundation, but I thought I’d give this a go. It’s high coverage without looking cakey, the colour is the best of all the foundations I’ve tried over 15 years! I am very surprised that I like it so much, more surprised at the low price and perfect colour! The finish is very dewy, even with setting powder so it has a natural finished look.” – Jackphoebs

I almost gave up on liquid lipsticks because they are incredibly drying on me. They crack after a minute and by the end of the day my lips look and feel like a disaster. I’ve only tried deceased, but it is fabulous. It’s not overly drying, you barely feel it and it’s easy to take off, but it doesn’t smudge or anything. I will definetly buy more from this brand.” – Yana

Each colour of the eyeshadows are so pigmented, they have a great combination of colours from day to night, from my daily neutral eye makeup style to night parties superglam look, and the colours tend to cater to warm-toned rather than cool-toned. The buttery and smooth texture makes me super satisfied with the quality. No wonder this palette is many people’s holy grail and I really want to recommend it to makeup beginners. If you want to start doing your eye makeup, you gotta have this first – I guaranteed you could never wrong!” – ElinaJoss

This product is a must have in my skincare kit! I always have a supply of this for when I get a major breakout… I would suffer from hormonal acne and this keeps any big cystic spots at bay and prevents them from fully forming! Any little congestion spots are cleared after one night of using. This is so effective but doesn’t leave my skin sensitive, sore or irritated… it dries out spots but is still soothing for any inflamed or painful spots! This product also last ages although this depends on how often you use it i suppose… 1 bottle normally does me 6-7 months” – Loulou2543

The palette has gorgous packaging, and the pans are a very large size (so you are definitely getting your moneys worth by buying this palette!) The shadows themselves are amazing and are some of my favourite I have ever used, the mattes are very pigmented as well as being blendable and creamy, and the shimmers are very smooth, and pigmented, and are both very buildable. I would definitely recommend this palette to somebody considering purchasing it and think that you are getting a good value for money with this palette. I also think it would make a great gift for somebody as well!” – Chloe_may
