Real techniques brushes are AMAZING. The core collection was the first set of makeup brushes I ever bought and the RT brand is one I have loved ever since. The brushes are pretty, with soft bristles that don't fall out, and the core collection has everything you need for basic looks!
I first used this when I found some in the bottom of my mum's cosmetics drawer. I've been using it religiously ever since! I have very thick hair but only need to use a small amount, the serum smells amazing and definitely worth the price. Leaves the ends of my hair feeling so hydrated!
The first contour pallette I ever bought - definitely a prime example of 'you get what you pay for'. Great for beginners, the highlighter is very pigmented and is the best part of the pallette. The blush and contour are less pigmented and usually fade within only a few hours of application. Good to learn the basics of contouring without leaving a huge dent in your pocket!
This blush comes in a good selection of shades, and all of the colours are highly pigmented with shimmer to add a subtle highlight and glow to cheeks. I love this blush and want to buy it in every colour! Lasts quite a while too, overall a really nice daytime blush!
Absolutely love this little duo. The contour powder is very pigmented and easy to use with the right brushes, however it begins to fade after a few hours. The highlighter is amazing, not too much, very pigmented also and great for a subtle everyday glow. Not hard on the bank balance, definitely my go-to on a student budget!
My go-to makeup remover! Tends to make my skin break out so I only use it to remove eye makeup, however it lasts ages as I don't need much and it only takes a few swipes to remove makeup completely. Takes a bit more elbow grease to budge waterproof mascara but very good for everyday looks!
While this mascara adds a decent amount of length, it makes my lashes clump together and look very thick/fake. Works well in combination with actual false lashes though as helps blend them into to your natural lashes.
Definitely worth forking out the extra pennies for. When I first applied it I was worried as it seemed a bit yellow but it matched to my skin after blending with a damp sponge, and stayed on all day! Can go patchy in places, but it's my favourite intense coverage foundation!
