I'm just being nosey really.
Mine is the double wear mascara. I love the small brush.

Benefit Roller Lash mascara!

LoupGarou Sat 25-Feb-17 12:23:16

The Luminoso blusher from Milani, its a dupe of Nars Orgasm and its better than the original IMHO. I makes more difference than I would have ever thought possible for a blusher. I'm a huge convert to Milani in general, haven't tried a product of theirs yet which hasn't been fantastic.

The Nivea Q10 Pearls Serum, I bought it as it had a look noticeably younger or your money back offer and I didn't expect it to work, put it on before bed, woke up the next morning and was shocked at how great my skin looked. I tend to look quite a lot younger than I am but I was glowing.

It's not a first time buy but there's been a big gap. I've had it before and it transforms my lashes after 6 weeks. Been able to afford it this week and cannot wait to get my lashes back in shape!

Blusher from NYX.
Since wearing it people keep telling me I look well.
I must have looked shit before grin

Two dupe perfumes from Perfume Parlour as recommended on S&B. Dupes for Daisy Fresh and Daisy Dream and much cheaper than the real thing. Both gorgeous.

Loving this thread.
Am about to give my entire make up bag an overhaul as feeling drab and need some better bases primers foundations hi lighters etc etc so lots of hope for lots of good recommendations grin

benefit lollitint, part of a qvc package, it's v pretty and seems to last

Bluntness100 Sat 25-Feb-17 12:39:11

Benefits rose brick shimmer thingy, I use it as blusher and it just adds enough colour and makes me look a bit dewy, love it. 😃

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Sat 25-Feb-17 12:41:43

Got a free sample of Benefit They're Real mascara. Really liking it, although it seems to get mixed reviews. Struggling to get it off with my make-up remover though. Think it needs something more heavy-duty.

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation. Never tried it before but was worn down by constant raves on YouTube.

Well whaddya know, they were right - it's really lovely.

Honey1975 Sat 25-Feb-17 12:47:31

Bluntness the Benefit one sounds nice, what is it actually called please as there seem to be a few. I need something to make me look alive!

rocket74 Sat 25-Feb-17 12:47:45

Aveeno body mist moisturiser. So easy to get covered in it without loads of rubbing in.

Also the Orange Happiness range from Rituals - it was a gift - it smells divine and lingers a long time.

ElspethFlashman Sat 25-Feb-17 12:51:15

Another thing I bought last month and have become obsessed with very rapidly is the Wet n Wild contouring powder duo in Dulce de Leche.

The contour is really natural and also makes an amazing neutral eyeshadow and the other side is a banana powder (rather than a Shimmery highlighter) which means it's brilliant for brightening under the eyes.

Don't think WnW is in the UK so that ones for all the Irish peeps. wink

After so many MN recommendations, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo. It has transformed my skin. I've had acne my whole life, and am a terrible sporny picker so have lots of lovely dark marks. The ED has reduced the no of spots I get significantly, if I do get a spot it clears up very quickly, and the dark marks have gotten much lighter.

LoupGarou Sat 25-Feb-17 12:55:35

Elspeth yy to Wet N Wild, I love their stuff, especially their lipsticks, most of which are ultra cheap but brilliant dupes for MAC. I live in the states though so W N W is everywhere here.

I'm going to look into revitalash too. Brilliant thread OP smile

LoupGarou Sat 25-Feb-17 12:56:34

Also Wet N Wild is available on amazon UK

Truckingalong Sat 25-Feb-17 12:58:06

A blue / red light for my acne. Game-changer!

WipsGlitter Sat 25-Feb-17 13:00:11

Bobbi Brown cleansing milk. Smells spa like. Very easy to use - love it!

Crispmonster1 Sat 25-Feb-17 13:01:07

A sensitive moisturiser from Keihls. It's amazing!

Rainbowglow Sat 25-Feb-17 13:13:15

Niod Sanskeet Saponis. A little miracle worker on my pores and make up goes on a treat when I use it.

user1467976192 Sat 25-Feb-17 13:14:32

Sleek eye palettes, a whimsical fairground one and Nordic skies

user1467976192 Sat 25-Feb-17 13:15:00

Also tony moly face mask sheets I love them

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Sat 25-Feb-17 13:41:31

Bobbi brown corrector.

Jaimx86 Sat 25-Feb-17 13:47:22

I had a Dior splurge on Thursday. The corrector pens (I got the green and yellow) and brilliant - I wasn't convinced they'd work but I noticed a big difference when I did my make up yesterday. Haven't tried the rest yet... but looking forward to getting time to sit and do my makeup properly soon.
Skin wise, I recently got the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and my skin looks really healthy if I put it on before bed.
