I love the feel of this lippy its creamy and moisturising and the scent is soooooo delicious. This colour goes on a soft pinky brown shade on my lips almost a nude shade of pink very pigmented and covers well lasts okay but does disappear when eating/drinking, gorgeous purple pink ribbed metal tube. This has been my everyday go to color this winter and spring. and ive nearly finished it within five months, never got through a lipstick that quick before. I can use this without balm underneath and it has protected my lips in this cold english winter. Iam a MAC NW30.
my husband bought me this on a whim, as someone who cant tolerate strong perfumes i really hated this still have 75% of it keft in the bottle after 8 years. i once wore it for him since he did buy it for me and he said it was making him dizzy!! well i said you did get it for me. so will never be used and sit in my wardrobe forever.
i loved this a few years ago has a light crisp fragrance great in summer. might get it again when its on offer.
Eyeliner -Christian Dior - Crayon Eyeliner in Black

i found this to be a quite dry so it drags a fair bit if not warmed up enough. it isnt as black as it should be more charcoal, is easier to use once it is warmed up, works better for a slightly smoky look. and fades after 3 to four hours smudges when touched maybe cos i have slightly greasy lids. lovely packaging looks top quality and the smudger end is great.
i bought this on valentines as a valentines treat to myself. gorgeous packaging the red is what drew me in. being someone who doesnt like strong fragrances i find this quite heady and cant use this near my face as with most perfumes for me. but towards the end of the day i love how it combines with my own skin and pheremones smells gorgeous!! makes me feel sexy. is vey floral and spicy not fruity or fresh but a strong heavy perfume in my opinion.

got this as a gwp i hate these colours not a great texture or lasting power. looks cheap in my opinion. however i tried it together with my dior lipliner in mahogany and it looked fairly nice and flattered my medium asian tanned skintone. still not convinced to buy this in a full size. is one of those that will hang around in my makeup drawer unused. iam MAC NW30.

this is so moisturing, hydrating, refreshing and cleansing. leaves my skin smooth and soft. love the consistency and smell. good value i would reccomend this to those with dry skin, my sister used when she stayed over and fell in love with it she has flaky dry skin. it completely transformed her skin.

Fragrances -L'Occitane - Cherry Blossom Solid Perfume

really lovely smell and good value. smells sweet and floral. its a soft fragrance, have to apply a fair bit just to smell it on myself. would go for the perfume spray instead next time.
Moisturizers -Boots - Botanics Day Moisture Lotion

I am reviewing the cream in a jar and not the lotion in a tube. Picked this up at Boots for just £2.50 (50ml), bargain, nice overall moisturiser for the family, use it on the children as it has SPF12. I would describe this as a medium texture not too heavy or light with a rice fragrance as it contains rice and honey extracts. Leaves my combination skin soft and hydrated, and really gets rid of dry flaky areas of skin. Can use this under foundation as well. Is just fine for a cheap day cream, and for those who dont believe in premium skincare (many are ripoffs anyway) even my hubby was impressed. Comes in a lovely glass tub with a silver metal lid looks better than many premium brands.
this is so yuck it smudges and makes me look like a panda in a couple of hoyrs also made my eyes water. horrid

this is a lovely shade of natural radiance. on me it looks pinky/peachy/goldish leaves a soft shimmer and glow on my cheeks. will last forever so i dont think i will need to buy another. crap packaging though i think it looks dead ugly would never take it out in public!! iam MAC NW30
