YBF Great Expectations 9 Piece Collection
Whoever remembers Models Prefer Cosmetics on QVC, will know that the brand name has been changed to YBF ( Your Best Friend). Not sure how i feel about the name, nevertheless this 9 piece collection really got my eye going.
You Can purchase this item from Ebay or QVC. QVC introductory price is £25.98 & will go up to £28.95.
"ybf's Stacey Schieffelin has chosen these versatile colours to create a host of different looks. Her Great Expectations Collection includes Neutralizing Face Primer (15ml) to counteract redness, plus Let There Be Light Illuminating Creme (3.3g) to create a soft glow. For the eyes there's the Amazing Gaze Eye Shadow Quad (12.5g), Eyeliner Pencil (1.1g) and a Transforming Brow Pencil (0.14g). To add contour, use the Transforming Cheek Colour Quad (15g). Finish your look with either of the two Lipsticks (4g) and top with the Organza Pearl Lipgloss (3.5ml)."
I really adore this lovely little set, apart from the fact that the lipsticks smell a little weird, the brow pencil will never replace my Rimmel Brow pencil in Hazel! and the blush needs a very light hand for my pale skin.
Thumbs up for the Face primer! I swatched it on my hand and it sunk in real fast and felt velvety smooth!
The lip gloss smells gorgeous like 'Fruit Salad' the eyeshadows are medium pigmented with luxurious slight shimmer.
The highlighter is creamy & light, great for adding light to check bones along the nose etc. The eyeliner is glidey and smooth but i don't think it will wear long! I do like the fact that these lipsticks are very unusual as you will see. :)
