That’s Everything!

Recommended: Amazon Lip & Cheek Tint – very good colour, more of a purple based red compared to benetint etc, really lovely feel and consistency, plus staying power!
A Bit of a Let Down: Skin Tint- Fair. Totally different to the swatch on the website
Comes out pretty orange, once blended not too bad but the most expensive thing in the range at £10
Smells very floral too
Absolute Bargain:Amazon Nails – Cloud! I’m not sure if its the same for each colour but great formula opaque in one coat! easy to apply and only £5
Biggest Surprise: Both the Amazon Crayon and the Amazon Kohl, are really good, super smooth, great colour. Very like the urban decay liners or MAC pearl gliders.
Not sure it was worth it: Eye Crayon – Midnight. Its not terrible but after swatching both the amazon liners as well its just not anywhere near as good as them
It seems I liked everything from the trend range a lot better than their basics
the Amazon line is a little more, so maybe that’s where they put all the little gems?
Any thoughts?

  1. I am going to check this range out tomorrow, I'm glad you recommend the lip & cheek tint and the sun shower crayon, I'll definitely be picking those up now! I'm quite liking the look of the lipstick crayon too. Thanks for the swatches!

  2. ooh good, cant wait to see what you get!xXx

  3. Fantastic haul! I love the gold crayon and first light, wonderful colours. I picked myself up some bits but i think i need more!

  4. I know you posted this ages ago but just came across it now so thought I'd comment! I've got Wine lipstick, rosa lip stick, and eye crayons in moonshine and sea, all 4 products are amazing! The colours come out very well and are incredibly intense! I really want the berry cheek and lip tint and the vintage lip stick looks really nice too, as does sun shower crayon (which isn't online any more)Have you ever used the thick glitter eye pencils from NARS? They are £20 (bit steeep) but fantastic =)
