I bought these on Ebay after reading reviews here. None of the Crest Whitestrips are available to buy in the UK, unless through Ebay or other internet sites. Before I used the strips, my teeth were a bit on the yellow side with some mild staining. After the very first usage I noticed a big improvement in colour. I have been using them for ten days now, and my teeth are very white. I am going to save the rest of my strips for maintainance. If they get much whiter now, they are going to look like Ross in that episode of friends. They weren't painful for me, but I did use Sensodyne and Arm & Hammer enamal restorer toothpaste. The first time I used the strips there was some mild tingling, but that soon stopped. I am very pleased with how my teeth look now, and I will definately buy again.
I can't really wear the original Angel, it feels too heavy on me. However, this is a lovely light wearable version. It smells delicious, like iced watermelon that's been sprayed with angel. My boyfriend loves it (he loves orignal Angel too). Even my picky mother likes it. Also had a compliment in work.
I'm on a low buy at the moment, but was sucked in by the claims that it made lip lines less visable. I'm 35 years old, with very few fine lines, but I do have those annoying lines around my lips. Well, this stuff is amazing. It gives my lips a nice light sheen, is comfortable and very moisturising, and best of all, it really does help the lines seem less visible. My new HG!

I only tried this on in a store. It was fairly heavy on first applying, but smelt good, and was tempted to buy. Luckily I decided to wait for it to dry down. After ten minutes it started to smell incredibly heavy and overpowering on me (I had only applied one spritz). A few hours late I asked the boytoys opinion and he thought it smelt like aftershave. Bad aftershave. So that'll be a no then.
Oh no, I want a backup. I hate when this happens because I don't always use backups! It's such a beautiful peachy colour, but sheer so it doesn't make me look like I went mad with a peach coloured crayon.
This is a lovely glowy blush. It reminds me of Orgasm, but with more pink. My only complaint is that if I put too much on, it looks frosty. It's a very neutral colour on me, I can wear it with either warm or cool lipsticks.

This is my first Dior quint. I've always been put off buying them by the price (£32), but after trying this one I had to buy it. The colours are otherwordly beautiful. Top right is a very slightly green tinged silvery taupe, bottom right is pigmented purple, bottom left looks blue in the palette but shows up shimmery blue green on my yellow toned lids, top left looks dark green in the palette, but goes on a little like UD Roach but with more khaki, kind of a khaki that flashes brown. The middle shade is shimmery pale peppermint green. Apart from the purple the colours are fairly sheer, they all go on very silky looking and make my eyelids 'glow'. I would say the texture is similar to Armani e/s. For reference I have very dark brown eyes and pale yellow toned skin.

I love the vibrant peachy coral shade against my dark brown eyes. It's similar to MAC Melon pigment and UD X, but dries with a silky sheeny texture that lasts for hours. It looks good on it's own, or with practically anything else. Today I'm wearing it with Milani Flare to line and it looks great.
I really like Shroom. I use it in lids and sockets. It doesn't really work as a highlighter on me - I'm too pale skinned for that. It's a great neutral, and works well with everything else in my collection. I would repurchase.
This is a very pretty golden pink colour. Looks great on the bottom of the brow bones/top of sockets, to open up the eyes in a nice subtle way. Looks pretty against my brown eyes, but doesn't make my yellow toned pale skin look sickly, the way that many pinks do. I would buy this again if I ran out.
I love this bronzer. It gives me the perfect glow, without being orange or fake looking. It's pretty sheer, so I do find myself using a lot. I've hit pan on mine, and it doesn't feel like I've been using it for terribly long. I will definately re-purchase the next time I'm in London. If I wear this, I generally get told that I look good, which can never be a bad thing! For reference, I'm a LLL, with yellow toned skin, cool toned brown eyes, and dark hair.
Beautiful hot pink nails. Looks great against a tan. As always with Chanel n/p you pay for what you get - it's expensive, but ultra shiny, amazing colours and it wears very well.
I can't easily descibe this fragrance, but I will try. For the first minute it's the skin of an orange, then it begins to meld with the skin and turns into a mellow green musk. Just lovely, and suitable for either a man or a woman. This isn't for everyone, but if you like interesting scents I think you will enjoy it.

The first time I used this I put it on my net puff and was so disappointed as it hardly lathered at all. The next time I followed the instructions and put it on my palms and latered it up. It works much better this way, providing a rich and cream lather. I bought the cleanser and the body cream together with two of the face products in a special deal from Harrods. I've been using the cream and the cleanser together and I have to say that my skin is a lot softer than normal, especially around the back of my legs and my behind!

I love the fresh apricot smell of this creme. The texture is lovely. All together a great product, though it loses one lipstick because of the high price.
