A few of the reviews I have read quite like it for the £1.99 price tag.
I found the product to be too dark for me even thought I bought it in the lightest shade(porcelain). I didn't like how the product sat on my skin as it didn't seem to sink into the skin but sat on top looking mask like. On areas of my skin that are dry it was quite moisturising. I did try this product around the house for the day and found that it began to melt off my face after around 2hrs and for me I need something longer lasting.
Overall I think if you can get a shade to match your skin tone then maybe this tinted moisturiser could work for you. At £1.99 it is worth trying but swatch in store before you buy!
Has anyone tried any tinted moisturisers that last well and come in lighter shades? Have you tried the Elf tinted moisturiser what did you think?

Well while looking through recent blog posts I came across "A Makeup Lovers" blog and found her post to be really interesting and informative. She has included a picture of the face with the different areas and why you may get spots there. You can find the post here
To see why you are getting spots in certain zones see A makeup Lovers post above

I bought the following and since I have now tried them I will do a mini review on each.
The complexion Perfection
Blush in Glow
And Eyebrow Stencils
The Golden Bronzer is really nice as a highlight colour as its quite shimmery. In my opinion its probably a bit too shimmery for a contour colour. As there is four colour I swirl my brush in the middle to pick up all the colours. Or why not use each colour seperately as eyeshadows.
To be honest I was a little disappointed in this powder I was hoping it would replace my green concealer but its just not got enough coverage for me. I am going to try it on top of my foundation and see if I like it better like this.
Glow blusher- Nice colour of blush with a little shimmer. Although it took me about 10 minutes to get this open lol but there is a way to get into it and once you've done it once its easy. A great price at only £1.50
Eyebrow Stencils- These are really great for pencilling in your eyebrows and just generally tidying them up. You get a set of four stencils so your sure to find one to suit your eyebrows.
And not I'm off to finish watching TOWIE (#Reem ! haha )

I painted my nails with Gosh Wild Lilac and chose a flower from the plate. I found it really easy to create this look.
I put the white Konad Nail polish over the flower, scraped off the excess with the Konad Scrapper tool and put the stamper tool over the image to transfer it and then placed on my nail.
It really is that simple!
Have you tried nail art ? Have you given the Konad system a go yet ??

I do have quite a few products that are almost finished and so these will feature in next months.
Alberto Balsam Hairspray- I really like this hairspray and have repurchased many times. It lasts all day, holds your hair in place. Its not got an over powering smell, its not visible in your hair and doesn't make your hair sticky. On the other hand the Hairspray shown below is the worst hairspray I have ever tried.
Nivea Pearl Deodrant a nice smell and does the job.
Carmex lipbalm- In my opinion this is the best lipbalm out there. It can transform dry cracked lips overnight.
Eye Makeup remover pads which I've spoke about in previous posts
My Barry M nail effects polish which dried up so had to go in the bin, I'm so disappointed that it dried up and a bit unsure why it wasn't old and was stored with all my other nail polishes ....
I really can't tell you how much I hate this hairspray. It made my hair so sticky I couldn't even get a brush through it!! It also sprays like a mouse leaving your hair with white bubbles on it till it sets and goes clear ..yukk!
Anna Sui Secret Wish Perfume- Personally I didn't really like this perfume and so was using it up, its got quite an over powering smell at first but does dissappear quite quickly. Really I got it for the bottle which has a fairy on the lid :)
Taken from a website as I'm not very good at describing scents:
The first notes are fresh and juicy: lemon, melon, tagette, peach, pineapple, and black currant. They are followed by floral accord and elegant woodsy notes of white cedar, sandalwood, amber and musk.
What have you used up this month? Do you ever buy perfumes just for the bottle?

I love this colour its really summery and girly, great for the lovely weather we've been getting. This nail polish applied really well and could be worn with just one coat but I do prefer 2 for that little bit extra coverage. I have a few other colours from the 17 range and will have another look next time i'm in boots:)

I have been looking for a foundation which is quite light but lasts a reasonable amount of time. I have heard good things about Bourjous Healthy Mix foundation so I picked one of these up in boots today and as an added bonus it was on offer at £6.99! I really hope I like it as its so affordable. I have heard it works for some and has broke others out so I will let you know my opinions and how I get on with it.
I also had a No 7 £5 off voucher and decided to spend it on a No 7 Quick cover concealer stick. I read on MakeupSavvys blog that these provide good coverage without being cakey.
Well I'm off to paint my nails now, a nice summery colour as its been a lovely day here in Glasgow :)

While is Superdrug I picked up Sleeks newest Palette in Paraguaya, this is part of the new 'Avoir la Peche' Collection. I was so excited to be able to get my hands on this as whenever a new palette comes out its always out of stock in my local superdrug.
I love how on the recent palettes Sleek have included a sheet with the names of the eyeshadows
What Sleek say:
The new Avoir la Peche collection is everything you will need to be on trend for this spring. Inspired by peaches from all over the world, the collection celebrates in a variety of hues that will see you well into the warmer months of 2011. The Paraguaya i-Divine 12 piece eyeshadow palette is filled to the brim with warm browns, cool corals and powdery pinks - perfect for inspired looks such as Valentino's S/S11 trend.
What I say :
I really love the palette as the colours are all very wearable and although I do think I will use them as eyeshadows I think they will look great as blushes as well. I have heard quite a few people say they wish Sleek would do a blush palette and have to say I agree!
The Avoir la Peche collection launched on the 16th March in Superdrug and also on the Sleek Website for a Limited time only (until 13th April 2011). This palette is £6.49.

Rimmel London- 825 SKY HIGH
I seem to have a love hate relationship with Rimmel brushes, on some polishes I like the brush and on others I really don't. This polish has the xpress brush and I just found the polish quite hard to apply without slopping it everywhere which neadless to say resulted in my fingers having more polish on them than the nails(well almost)
It is a gorgeous colour tho so its worth it :)

This year I seem to be loving Rimmel products, first it was their match perfection concealer which has become a HG product and now I love their lipsticks!
The lipsticks I bought were Colour Show off Lipstick in 020 Shake-up Pink and a Lasting Finish Lipstick in 006 Pink Blush. My favourite of the two being Shake up Pink.
L-R Pink blush and Shake up Pink
Both Lipsticks have a great colour pay off and are gorgeous colours.Both colours are long lasting and feel quick nourishing on the lips and aren't drying. The packaging of both is nice but as much as I love pink I prefer the darker packaging as it looks more professional.
And what really sold these lipsticks to me, apart from the colours, was the smell! Now I don't know if anyone knows what I am talking about when I say they smell like a children's chewing gum( one that came in a red circular plastic packaging, all rolled up and you broke pieces off ?? If you know what its called please let me know as its annoying I can't remember the name !)
I also picked up the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in translucent, which I have heard good things about.
So if your in boots/superdrug check out the range of rimmel products you might just be surprised, as they really seem to have some amazing products atm.
