Face Friday: U Magazine Box

FF-ThumbHello all! In case you haven’t seen this haul yet, I was fortunate enough to win all of these goodies from U Magazine for winning a quiz. And really, there is no better way to start trying them than to slap them on your face and hope for the best. For that reason the foundation, blush, eyeshadow and lipstick are all ones that I’ve never tried before, while a couple of items are tried and tested favourites.




  • Foundation: NYC – Natural Matte Foundation (001 – Ivory)
  • Bronzer: Wet n Wild – Coloricon Bronzer (Ticket to Brazil)
  • Blush: NYC – Cheek Glow (649 – Prospect Park Rose)
  • Powder: Benefit – Hello Flawless (Ivory)


  • Brows: Maybelline – Brow Drama (Medium Brown)
  • Shadow: NYC – IndividualEyes Palette (Smoky for Green Eyes)
  • Liner: ModelCo – Eye Liner Pencil (Black 01)
  • Mascara: NYC – High Definition Mascara (black)


  • Liner: Revlon – Colorstay liner (Red)
  • Lipstick: Rimmel – Lasting Finish by Kate (110)


  • Blank Canvas – F20 – Foundation
  • Real Techniques – Multi Task Brush – Blush
  • Real Techniques – Setting Brush – Bronzer (contour)
  • Ecotools – Powder Brush – Powder
  • Blank Canvas – E32 – Eyeshadow Primer
  • Blank Canvas – E24 – Highlight Shadow & Blend
  • Royal & Langnickel – Silk C260 Taklon Shadow – Lid Shadow
  • Real Techniques – Essential Crease Brush – Crease Shadow & Contour Shadow
  • Blank Canvas – L29 – LipstickCouple of notes: I’m not a fan of the foundation. It was runny, applied quite unevenly, and if it weren’t for the Hello Flawless evening things up, it would have been a disaster. The blush was light, natural and buildable nicely. The shadow palette was nice to work with, though as I was in a hurry to get back outside to the sun I didn’t do a perfect job of it. I’m quite a fan of the lipstick. I can see myself wearing it again.
