    I use a smashbox one, I got it in a trial kit with a little pot of powder foundation and primer too. Really like them all!

    Tarte do a great BB cream, in heaps of shades. I'm pretty sure you can get it in the UK. It's pricey but lasts ages ! It's also cruelty free which is a big deal to me.

    Edit: Tarte launches in the UK March 28th. So oops to that :P

    Picked up what i thought was the same eyeliner i have. Got home and find out its not. Its got 3 tips!
    It created a nice flick on my hand but i made a right mess on my eye. Any idea how im meant to use it?

    You're meant to use it sideways for a normal straight black line, use the tips to draw dots on the lash line to make your lashes look thicker or use all three tips flat like one pen and create a thick line.. I personally don't like them, way too hard to use !

    Its quite awkward to use at first but its actually really good once you get the hang of it! Can create really nice even flicks.
    How you do your eyeliner makes such a difference! My eyes look so much softer with flicks

    For anyone who has trouble with eye liner I struck gold. It's the Maybelline precision pen or something along those lines and I love it. I could never do eyeliner before hahahaha I looked so dumb. But now it's my favorite thing in the entire world because it makes my eyes look so big and it's really forgiving if you don't get it just right Oooo and also the Big Eyes mascara is AMAZING. That's all I can really say about it, but I use those two things every day and I love love love them. And for eyeliner tip: Start with the eye closed or almost closed, and then put the pen in the center of your lashline and draw a thin line STRAIGHT across towards the outside of your eye. Don't follow the contour. Then fill it all in, and voila! It's the perfect everyday wedge look
