*Please note: These products were sent to me to review, however all opinions are my own. I was not paid for this review. *

Seeing this product was like love at first sight! Firstly, the colour of the rouge was absolutely beautiful. It is a mix in-between light coral and pink. The consistency of the product is super creamy, with a slight sheen. It applies to both cheeks and lips like silk. 

When I first heard of BB creams, I was slightly concerned about the overall final 'look' it would give to my face. Being a 'tinted moisturiser' I did not want it to leave my skin looking and feeling slimy and oily. But, to my amazement it didn't. In fact, the application was rather matte (with a slight glow). It contains '5 in 1 benefits' including, non-greasy/24 hour hydration, SPF 15, Vitamins C & E, Q10, plus antioxidants & peptides. Also a bonus feature, the colour matched my complexion perfectly, and it didn't make my face break out (as some other BB creams have done previously, yay! :)

To be completely honest, I don't usually wear foundation primer as I try to keep my skin as free of products which could block up my pores (not saying that this product will). Though, today I did try out the 'Designer Brands Primer' and was pleasantly surprised with the result. The consistency of the primer is quite light, which I like very much. Plus, It kept my foundation on all day, yes, all day. Formulated with vitamins C & E, green tea & aloe vera extract, plus antioxidants. For a product which is only $14.99, you receive a substantial amount of 28ml in each bottle. 
I am very happy with the overall product.

I LOVE mascara, so when I found out I was receiving this product to review...well all I can say is...I was pretty damn happy. Firstly, the packaging of this mascara is super pretty. It looks so much more expensive than it actually is. I didn't take a photo of the application as yet due to my eyes looking really bloodshot and tired (so what I had a late night...oopsies). But I can tell you that the product gave my lashes so much extra length and volume. One little negative I would give, would be its strong chemical scent. It is a little overpowering. But overall, I'm really pleased with this mascara.

As of yet, I have not tried any brand of chubby pencil/crayon lipstick...weird right. After testing this lip product, I'm officially hooked! I would explain it as a lip balm crossed with a lipstick. When wearing this product, my lips felt soft, plump and moisturised. Which is everything I've ever wanted in a lip product. The colour, 'Guava Kiss', is so pretty yet subtle. Somewhat resembling a light peachy/nude colour. In my opinion, a perfect everyday colour.

The one thing I never leave my house without, is my lipstick. It simply completes the overall look of my makeup. Even If I am not wearing any other form of makeup, I always have my 'lippy' in hand. When I purchase a lipstick, I usually look for the colour, good pigmentation, smooth application, and most of all, long-lasting.  First of all, I absolutely loved the colour. It resembles a light rose mixed with a nude shade. It applied very smooth and even, which was fantastic. Application was rather good. 

Personally, I would probably apply a couple of coats to get my desired colour. After about 2-3 hours, the lipstick began to wear off slightly, but this didn't really bother me as I normally re-apply my lipstick every couple of hours anyway. Overall, this lipstick is great quality, I would definitely purchase this product in the future. :)

After reviewing these new products by Designer Brands, I am very pleased. It really proves that you don't have to spend a large amount of money to get great quality products.
As mentioned earlier, I will definitely be purchasing products from the Designer Brands range in the future.

  5. However, like any product, Vig - RX Plus may have different levels of effectiveness
    for different men. , announced yesterday in a press release, the voluntary consumer recall of a dietary supplement marketed under the
    brand name of "Night Bullet," found to contain trace amounts of
    an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction. The scientists formulated male enhancement gels in order to give men a superiority choice to pills and penile exercises.
