was sent a lovely selection of make up to review from SHEER COVER. I am not a particularly girly girl but I
definitely would like to make a little bit more effort, the distressed look is
not working for me anymore!
I love about this brand is the VIP Club; whereby you pay a set amount each
month and every three months get a complete set of new makeup like in my
I think this is great, because the amounts provided are
just right to use up completely in time to receive your next fresh set. Some people have big pots of foundation that
linger around for ages, its surprising how many germs can be lurking in old
makeup! Hands up as well who is guilty
for keeping it too long… I bet there are heaps of you reading this and agreeing
If your makeup has been hanging about so long you forgot
when you bought it now might be the time to replace it! There is no need to be nostalgic about your
old makeup, when its time for it to go, just take the plunge (even if it reminds
you of a special occasion you went to far back yonder!). Keep a picture to remember something not a
crusty pot of gunk! Your face is worth

The hardest thing I find is discovering my skin tone for

The brushes were really good quality, whether you’re a
complete novice like me or a bit of a pro they should raise to the challenge. I felt like a little girl raiding her mum’s
make up bag! The products gave good coverage. I especially loved the Palette lip-gloss,
lovely colours and not too sticky!
The end result was very natural (but lines and pores were
hidden much more than normal). Although remind
me next time to brush my hair before a photograph! Obviously with talent you could work wonders, but I am still very happy and enjoyed dabbling with some great products.
