Love! This is a beautiful scent. Cleans without stripping my skin. It's slightly pricey but I will definitely repurchase. The scent of this stays on my skin for a few hours post shower :)

Got this as a sample with my last lush order. It doesn't really lather but I'm not one of those people who needs to see/feel lather to feel clean. It has a pleasant light scent that unfortunately doesn't really linger on me. Left my skin feeling moisturized post shower. Will buy in the future.

This perfume and color free moisturiser is a HG product for me. It's wonderfully hydrating and sinks in very quickly leaving my skin soft but not sticky feeling. As it's unscented it doesn't interfere with my perfume.

At full price this set is expensive for what is essentially a good exfoliator. However it is a VERY good exfoliator. I use this twice a week and it does make a difference to my skin's texture and ability to absorb products. The hydrator/sunscreen that comes with it is also good. Sinks right in and does not leave a cast. It's a little too light for my skin though - I need heavier moisture. *edit: After more extensive use I don't find the sunscreen in this set to be effective. I coloured up a LOT while using this.
HG colour for me. So versatile and flattering. Beautiful smooth texture, lots of pigment and lasting power and a beautiful dimensional shimmer. Absolutely perfect with a wide range of looks. Quite similar to MAC's Naked Lunch but better IMO :)
Uggh. I hate this shadow. So little pigment. So much chunky horrible glitter fallout. I've tried it wet....same deal..with primer..yep, fallout galore. Even worse I have this in a palette so it sheds glitter all over the lip products and other shadows. Awful product.
Sadly this hasn't worked out for me. It's not emollient enough for my dry skin and it feels like a weird waxy/powdery film on. I've been using it for 3 weeks now and haven't noticed any positive changes.
Initially this is a real blast of strong, sweet citrus on me. After a few moments a strange note comes through that I can't identify before it settles and the honey/rose comes out. It's a lovely fragrance but not unique enough for me to *need* a big bottle.

Outstanding product. Takes a little bit of practice to get used to when you're used to using pencil or liquid liner but is well worth it. Superbly versatile when applied with a quality angle brush and there is a huge amount of product so I'm expecting it to last for ages. You can play with the color intensity depending on how you mix it with water. Absolutely perfect for retro flick type eyeliner, lasts wonderfully too. Excellent product will repurchase...but I don't expect to need to anytime soon!
I know this is a love or hate product but luckily it works for me. About a week after I started using this in combination with skin drink I started getting compliments on my skin. I use it every second day and it works to clean and refine my fairly sensitive dry skin. It takes a small amount of effort to use this product but it's well worth it for me.
This didn't work for me. Too harsh on my skin, almost no scent, crumbled pretty much instantly and didn't really seem to moisturise.

This is a light, clean, creamy ginger on me. I really like it for hot days. It is extremely light though. I really need to slather and re-apply for this to be noticeable. Staying power is far from stellar.
Lovely product! I got a big bottle from the local ethnic grocery shop and decanted into a travel sized spray bottle. I use it in 3 ways. *as a toner *as a refresher when travelling or on hot days *over my mineral makeup to set Smells beautiful and is calming and gentle on my skin. Amazingly cheap. Will repurchase.
This is a nice little brush that's precise enough for crease work. Not the softest brush I've used but not overly harsh either. Excellent value for the price.
I got this free as part of a promo and used it until I tried some decent brushes and got to know better. Size and shape are good and it picks up and deposits colour well...BUT the bristles are really harsh and scratchy. Would rather pay more in future and get a luxurious feeling brush.
