Eye Shadow -Sue Devitt - Starlights Clear Water Eye Shadow - Ara - discontinued

I have this in Isis, a pretty pinkypeach shade. I was shocked to find mine had dried out (no I didn't read the reviews before buying). I lifted the plastic seal and added some water - it seems okay for now.
I haven't used one of these for several years but I thought I'd review the product as I was really allergic to it. I think it contains some kind of pineapple extract - I am slightly allergic to pineapple so as you can imagine I had swollen lips. My mother actually thought I'd had collegen injections. Pouty lips = good, but I had pouty *sore* lips.
I love the sweet honey chocolate smell so much that I wish I could buy a whole line of products that smelt the same. I use half a bar per bath. I like the amount of scent that it has in the bath - if it were any stronger I think it might make me feel a little sick. I agree with one of the other reviewers in that it is hard to crumble up, but I just let the big lumps sit in the bath for five minutes and then they crumble much easier. I would buy this again as it leaves my skin lightly scented with the most yummy fragrance.
As the other reviewers have said, this comes in a really cute jar. It's glass with a silver mettal cap with a pink and gold label on the cap. The gloss is pink. I mainly bought it because I fell in love with the jar. However, it is a good balm, it has a slight hint of colour and is fairly moisturising and I like the sweet rose scent.
Pretty smelling and lovely idea, but it gave me a rash. I don't normally have sensative skin, but after a bath with this had a prickly red rash over my skin.
I really like this, it's warm and delicous smelling for the winter, without being vanillery or fruity. I really like the Amber, and don't get much Pachouli. The staying power isn't great, I would like to try the body lotion.

I can't believe all the bad review - I love this stuff. I find it provides just the right amount of moisture without being greasy. I am prone to excema around my eyes, but it never comes up when I use this. I use it in the daytime under my eye makeup. I do have good genes - 33 and no lines yet, so I can't say if it has helped them. It hasn't really helped with dark circles, but I don't think anything would. My tube has lasted me forever, and I still have some left.
Cleansers -Boots - Time Delay Massaging Cleansing Balm

I have to agree with Pennypencil. Baby Face is much better! I really wanted to like this, but every time that I've used it my skin has reacted in little bumps. It clogs my pores and does nothing to improve my skin. I can't bring myself to use it anymore, because it's undoing all the good work that Baby Face did.
I can't believe that I've practically finished this gloss. I guess that it's because it's so natural looking. I've decided that I really don't like the taste all that much. On the plus side, it does have the classiest case out there.
I love this so much. It has improved my skin so much more than anything else that I use. I have normal to greasy skin that is prone to patches of excema. This has completely cleared up all of my pimples and left me with smooth, hydrated skin. I use it every night, after taking off my eye-makeup with a separate remover. I rub it all over my face apart from the eye area. I then use a warm wet washcloth/flannel to remove it. I've been using it for over 6 weeks , I would estimate that I've used under half of the bar so far.
Lip Gloss -Max Factor - Silk Gloss - Creme Caramel

I would agree with the description on the tube of "High beam shine and lip balm feel". This is a very nice new product from Max Factor. It's a metallic gloss, not sticky, with a soft moisturizing texture. This shade is a medium golden brown, not terribly pigmented, just adds a nice shimmer. It comes in an 8ml hard tube with a sponge tipped applicator.
Lovely light coppery shade. It brightens my face without look garish. MAC NC20 Black hair, brown eyes.
Lip Gloss -Guerlain - Divinora - KissKiss Gloss - #20 Rouge Emotion

okay, I like this gloss, it looks nice on, but it doesn't really look any nicer than a ton of cheap glosses. It's a very sheer red, and I do like the shade and the texture, plus it lasts nicely, but I'm really not sure it's worth the money. Also, I hate the packaging on this one. The bright red gloss against the gold lid just looks OTT. A friend said it looked very Dorian (something only the Brit girls will understand).
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Enhancer (skin focus range)
staceyrose 10/10/2004 7:06:00 AM
This is part of the new "Skin Focus" range. Its a small 5ml tube that costs £8.00 in the U.K. It is described as "instantly smoothes fine lines and softens lips". It contains peppermint oil which makes my lips tingle and does seem to have a plumping action. It is is in squeeze tube and is a peachy-pink cream. It is matt, but not too thick as long as you don't put too much on. It works very well as lipstick base. It doesn't dry my lips out like Lip Venom, nor does it tingle nearly as much.
I received this as a gwp, but I will definately go out and buy the full size. I have very long, but not terribly thick eyelashes, and this mascara makes them look *fat*. It has a huge brush and goes on pretty dry so that your lashes don't stick together. It also stays on all day (some mascaras seem to disappear on me by lunch time, where to, I don't know!).
