#1 - ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
Dont be decieved by how semi decent this looks in the pan, this is without doubt the worst bronzer that i have ever used. I've read tonnes of reviews saying this is a NARS dupe... it's not, not even close. It's a horrible colour and dull on the skin... i know at £3.50 your probably thinking "well what did you expect?"... alot more, on the whole ELF are brilliant, this product lets them down though.
#2 - Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
The moral of this story? Don't believe the hype! I have red tonnes and tonnes of reviews raving about this mascara, some going as far as to say this is the best mascara they have ever used. This is one of the worst i've ever tortured my eyes into wearing. It's SO wet, clumpy, smudgy and tear jerking (literally makes me cry!) Applying it is harder than running a marathon (not that i've done the latter, but go with me). If you blink it smudges & you can say bye bye to your eye-shadow! Be warned!
#3 - ELF Liquid Lipstick
Pigment is rubbish. Smells like chemicals. Lasts about a second. Stings lips... need i say more?
#4 - Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick
Ever wondered what it feels like to rub sand on your lips seconds after applying a glossy lipstick? No? Me neither, except this lipstick kindly showed me how it feels... not good. The worst textured lipstick I have ever used, the colours are nothing special either. Avoid if you can!

I've had a truly shit couple of weeks, so fancied doing a post that justified my moaning ;-)
Hope your all well, i'm focusing on posting a lot more than i have done as of late!
