    amen to the primer thing.. all rubbish! Moisturizer will do! 😛

    Am curious about your shampoo and conditioner.. do you reccomend/??

  2. Lina says:

    I think primers are meant for people with oily skin, as it keeps their make-up from slipping. I’m a dry skinned gal too and have never found a primer that is better than moisturiser alone. xx

  3. ndoodles says:

    I am so sad that the Mineral eye primer is out of stock at ELF! SO SAD! I was waiting for the powder brush to come back… and now that is back… I’m waiting for the eye primer!

  4. @Tali – High Five “team primers are a load of old rubbish!” – I think I do recommend yeah, my scalp is quite sensitive and I’ve had no irritation with them and my hair does seem pretty shiny at the mo. The shampoo and conditioner are brown coloured though, so you gotta be careful not to flick it all round the shower!

    @Lina – In the summer I consider my skin to be quite oily and I still don’t get any benefits from them :( I’ve got the Korres one to try. Really holding out hope that I’m gonna find one that works a charm!

    @Ndoodles – I’m not sure how I feel about the primer, it’s quite greasy feeling… I’m gonna have to do a side by side comparison with UDPP!

  6. jojoba says:

    wow you have tons of things! i love the way you list your items. i only do top 10 list thing once a year. come to think of it, i probably need to do that already!

    thanks for sharing!

  7. Dv says:

    I love the Bobbi Brown concealer kit, it’s so creamy and delicious! Ahh, I just love it SO much – I try to use as little as possible so I don’t run out! Haha! 😉

    Golly, you use a lot! Well, actually, I’m saying that compared to me so… I’ll just shut up now… :/

    :)

  8. Jo says:

    Im gunna nick this and do it on my blog.. hehe.

    xxxx

  9. @Rosa – This is the first time I’ve tried them, so far so good though! x

    @Jojoba – I wanted to do it every month (I’m such a fickle consumer!) but I think I’ve only managed it about 4 times this year! Yes, please do yours – I’ll be hugely excited to see!

    @Dv – Haha, use sparingly! I’m like that with a couple of things, especially LE items than I’m nearing hitting pan on! Hey, I don’t use all that every day! I haven’t warn any makeup since Christmas Day actually… that’s 3 whole days, my skin will think my foundation stash has been robbed! xx

    @Jo – Yay, looking forward to reading it xx

  10. Henessy says:

  11. @Henessy – isn’t it? Love wearing it!
