These babies are a great deal! I got this in Cedarwood, a gorgeous brown that goes on well on my tanned skin. Itís highly pigmented, goes on smoothly, lasts long, absolutely a favorite. Iím going to stock up on other colors soon, such a bargain.
Wow this texture is thick! Iím using shade E and I normally use this to conceal my under eye dark circle more than anything else and it works. Highly recommended. I love this so much that Iíve stocked up on it by buying 3 tubes.
Ok I got this for only USD12.5! And for whatís it worth, I think this looks better on the cheeks than on the lips. This goes on red-ish on me and somehow accentuates the lines on my lips Ė not a pretty sight. Plus itís not the best looking shade and dries out my lips. Badly. So I normally put this on to brighten up my lips a bit before applying another lippie/gloss. On my cheeks however, itís a real nice shade and I normally blend it using my fingers Ė it comes out quite sheer so I need to build it up before getting the right amount. But I do hate how it stains my fingers. As a lip product Ė big no, as a cheek product Ė yes, it works!
I have this in Chocolate Raspberry. First of all I got to rave about the smell Ė itís so good and edible! The color goes on thick and pigmented and itís more of a liquid lipstick than a gloss. Staying power is long but I wish this was a bit more moisturising. No worries here as I put on a bit of gloss on top of it and Iím good to go. I got this at a steal on Ebay for USD2. Love this!

I love everything about this kit except for the pinkiesh-red eyeshadow which goes on pretty bad on me. I love how cute this packaging is and the fact that the neutral colours mean popping it into my makeup bag for travels. Colours are highly pigmented and I love the smell of the glosses! Only wish it came with a nice mini eyeliner, that would have been perfect!
Oh gosh, Iím in love with the packaging Ė itís so girly and a nice product to show off. I paid USD6.50 for this on Ebay. I take this on holidays because the nice palette has all the neutral colours for day time while the naughty palette has all the colours available for a sexy grey smokey eye look. High pigments and definitely a highly recommended product

I LOVE and adore this shower gel - I've tried the peach, vanilla, strawberry, raspberry but my ultimate fav is the vanilla shower gel because it lasts really long and smells so damn good. I've used at least 3-4 bottles of the vanilla shower gel. Keep going back for more! Even my husband loves this.

Probably my favorite scent in the Body Shop shower gel line. It lasts long, makes my skin super soft and more importantly, smells so good.
Eee horrible product, it did nothing but just blacken and clump my eye lashes, no curling nothing whatsoever. If you like the darkening effect then maybe you can try it. This one just isn't for me.

I bought this in a darker shade because I bought a lighter shade from Lumiere. I apply EDM first then the Lumiere and these two seem to give me my perfect match. No complains because they donít break me out and I love the coverage. Controls my oiliness for a good 3 hours but then again I don't expect it to coz my face can get quite oily, that's what blotters are for :)
I like the bright yellow packaging but overall this didn't do much for me. A shame coz I was hoping I'd like it due to the many good reviews. My lips were still dry. It didn't moisturize em enough and weirdly, my lips felt sticky. I've switched to Crazy Rumours and I've been a fan ever since.
My HG cleanser, this was highly recommended by my dermatologist coz I was having breakouts. Since I use makeup, I remove my makeup using Simple's makeup remover, use Aiken Tea Tree Oil Cleanser followed by Cetaphil to double cleanse my skin nicely. And I use this before I go to bed too. Very gentle on the skin, love it!
