Was the twilight teaser shade of lipstick a pale bluey-pink? If so, that was my favourite.

I also crimped my hair after covering in loads of hairspray.

Rimmel pressed face powder

Blue kohl eyeliner

Panache perfume.

Rimmel Pink Shimmer lipstick.

Later on, blood red lipstick that made my teeth look yellow, and black eyeliner (haven't dropped the latter yet).

Body Shop White Musk.

Rimmel concealer.

Looked a right mess. Proper car crash.

body shop perfume oil stuff, was it called dewberry? everyone wore it!

Rimmel Almond Macaroon lipstick. You can still buy it, but they've changed the colour. I've never gotten through so much of one colour of the same lipstick since!

A disgusting Bourgeois matt shocking pink lippy. I was trying to emulate Wendy James of Transvision Vamp if anyone is old enough to remember. I got through loads of the things.
Also crimped hair and hairspray, and then would spray this bizarre purpley stuff into it....
A fake stick on rose tattoo just at the top of my (hanging out) cleavage.
I was such a catch.....hmm
Poison/Obsession perfume (which I still like actually)
Lucidity foundation...(always been a sucker for fancy ad campaigns which promise flawless complexions)

Rimmel electric blue mascara
Heather shimmer lipstick
Pale green shimmer eyeliner
Pink and blue eyeshadow (unblended)
Miners bright red blush (painted in a thick stripe)
Elnette hairspray to weld my flicks
Rimmel stay matte foundation and powder
No7 Green gooey moisturiser to hide blushes (completely negated by miners blusher)
Rimmel concealer

I must have looked like a clown

Nancy- Japanese exchange students still all wear Dewberry. (I've taken busloads of them specially to BS to get the 'orrible stuff)

sagacious Thu 30-Apr-09 12:15:02

Oh and georgio or lulu perfume

cornflakemum Thu 30-Apr-09 12:15:09

Patchouli oil hmm

Anne French cleansing lotion in a white triangular bottle grin

cherryblossoms Thu 30-Apr-09 12:16:13

Twilight Teaser here too. [Waves to all the fellow ex-goths outing themselves.]

Barry M - everything.

Biba colour palette. (Thought I'd die when production stopped.)

Boots concealer.

And Boots "Caribbean brights" eyeshadow palette another big favourite.

Rimmel eyeliner.

Hairspray. (Never use it now.)

Nail varnish remover (To remove results of hairspray from crimpers.)

sagacious Thu 30-Apr-09 12:16:38

I used ponds vanishing cream
And a toner so toxic it would strip off nailvarnich

Juwesm Thu 30-Apr-09 12:17:05

Remember Dior hair mascara? I had a blue one. What was that all about?

Megglevache Thu 30-Apr-09 12:17:42

Twitlight Teaser lipstick
No 17 Brazen Hussey Blusher (yes really)
Elnet hairspray

sagacious Thu 30-Apr-09 12:18:26

I had a cream one (in the vain hope it would look like highlights used to flake giving a rather attractive dandruff effect

I was also an Almond Macaroon wearer, lizzzombie.

Between the ages of 14 - 18 I also got through bottles of Sun In, which rather than making me sunkissed, turned my hair a lovely brassy orangy colour. grin

Juswesm - I also was given some blue hair mascara one Christmas(not Dior though, probably some pound shop version) but didn't really get it.

TBCoalman Thu 30-Apr-09 12:23:04

Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer.

That pink Body Shop stuff - not White Musk, the other one. Can't remember what it's called.

Astral Cream (still use this, but on my feet, not my face).

A lipstick called Shiny Conker. I don't know who made it, but looking at old photo's, I'd like to buy it again.

Oh yes, Body Shop Dewberry! And their banana conditioner. Heather Shimmer and Birthday Suit Rimmel lippies, and pressed powder.
