The other week I went into town and bought a few bits and bobs from Smashbox and I also got given a free Lancome gift set. So, I thought i'd write a short review about each product, as I was really happy with my purchases. I am by no means a make up expert, just thought I would share my views on these products.
Foundation - I thought I'd try out a new liquid base foundation and I got help from a very nice lady in the shop who helped me find the right colour for my skin. When I tried it on in the shop I was pleasantly surprised at how it gave such a natural look, which was what I was looking for. It covers up all blemishes really nicely and is also oil free.
Concealer - I really like this concealer. There have been so many different reviews saying it's too liquidy or it smears easily. Personally, I think it does a really good job in concealing any blotchy/darkness under my eyes, yet still gives a nice natural look.
Eyebrow Shadow - This is probably my favourite eyebrow product so far. You get two different shades of brown. In my case I use the lighter brown to fill in the beginning of the brow and then the darker brown to fill in where the eyebrows get thinner. I think it works really well and gives a very natural looking effect and isn't too heavy. It also comes with wax to keep your brows in place.

Mascara - I really liked the gift set and i'm definitely going to be using the mascara a lot. I think it makes my lashes look a lot longer, however it doesn't make them as thick and volumized as I'd like.
Eyeliner - I don't really wear eye liner but I tried it out and I was impressed that it stayed on the whole day, as the eye liners I have tried on before have always faded.
Eye Serum - I also got a little bottle with 'youth activating eye serum' inside. I'm probably a little young for that, but I thought i'd try it out anyway. It felt really nice on the skin, but I didn't really see any change under my eyes. Apparently, it's supposed to reduce wrinkles and make you look fresh.
