What are your thoughts on the products I've picked?


  1. I love Flake Away x

  2. There are some very funny categories here haha. I love how you did this :) Soap and Glory have really impressed me this year. Even their cosmetics are fantastic. Great post! x

  3. I love so many of these products! I'm a massive Natural Collection and Soap & Glory fan, plus I shift through hundreds of Batiste cans haha.

  4. I love that there's so many bargain products in your categories! And the newbie products are such a good idea- just what I needed

  5. Good list. I have not tried any of this. Really interested in Bare Minerals. The brush looks nice too. Have you tried Cover Girl tru blend? It's light coverage too, but not as good.

  6. Yes! Soap & Glory Righteous Butter is serious the best hand cream I've ever used. Have you tried the Make Yourself Youthful? I saw it at Sephora and was on the fence about buying it... thanks for the fun awards :)
