Promising review: "This product is great for slightly softer looking brows than the dipbrow pomade. It is also good for those who are too scared by the pomade but still want nicely shaped, sharp brows. Overall great product, easy to apply and looks amazing every time! Also no need for touch-ups throughout the day, it stays looking flawless" – Emily

Promising review: "I have been looking for a 'real' concealer for many years. I have worn many brands, tried everything under the sun for my fair/dry skin. THIS PRODUCT DELIVERS! And I don't say that lightly. I am skeptical of a lot of things and wasn't sure this product wouldn't just get returned or chucked into the pile of makeup that never lived up to much of anything. I HIGHLY recommend this if you have any dark circles under your eyes, or if like me you have the little red spots and veins that come with too much time in the sun over the years. If you're on the fence and really have given up on concealers please consider this!" – Jennifer

4. This Kat Von D liquid lipstick that will give you life.

Get it from Cult Beauty, £42 or in the US from Sephora for $40.

12. This Bourjois lipstick that will give you a perfect matte red lip.

Instagram: @makeupbydibawssette

Promising review: "Although this looks like a gloss from the packaging, it is most definitely a lipstick! the finish is super matte and once it's on, its staying. I wore mine out for drinks and did not have to touch up once which is unusual. As matte lipstick goes this is gentle on the lips and the most moisturising of any I own, the finish will be much nicer if you prep your lips with balm 30min before application. The packaging is great, I was initially cautious about putting something this bold on with the applicator, but it glides beautifully and evenly, meaning touch ups are very easy with just a hand mirror." – Lizzie828

Model wears shade Grand Cru.

Get it from ASOS, £8.50 or from the US Asos site for $13.50.

13. This glowing but still matte look done with Estee Lauder foundation.

Instagram: @makeupby

Promising review: "Absolutely love this foundation. I work in a fast food restaurant and I find it really hard to find a foundation that actually stays on my face and doesn't look greasy and the end of my shift. This foundation just stays in place all day and looks just as good at the end of the day then when you first applied it. I can't recommend this enough, definitely a must have" – Moore1998

Get it from Estee Lauder, £32.50 or in the US from Sephora for $42.

14. These cheeks that have been perfectly flushed with Too Faced blush.

Instagram: @paintdatface

Promising review: "I love what TooFaced did with this blush! Smells delicious, high pigmentation, a little goes a long way, long wearing, beautiful colors! This blush is different than any other blush I have ever used and that is in the best of ways. It is a very creamy texture goes on like a dream and looks wonderful, natural, very flattering for any skin type. I have dry skin and using this blush actually makes my skin look and feel hydrated, my cheeks look great! I would recommend this blush to everyone!" – lelmore907
