This is gorgeous, yes the smell is not for everyone but, I love anything lemony and cnnot stop sniffing my handswhen using this. Its quite a thick cream and moisturises my hand so well, they fee so soft and smooth, I even prefer this to my longtime HG hand cream - L'Occitane Shea Butter.
I really like this mascara, makes my top lashes really long and gives great emphasis on my lower lashes. I have had this a while and only really started using it in the last couple of weeks. I wear eyeliner mostly with my mascara and at the end of the day I looked in the mirror and thought my eyelashes looked pretty good! This is definitely a keeper and IMO one of the best mascaras I have tried.
I got this only recently though I know its been out a long time, it came in a kit I think it was the Smoky V and used it for the first time this morning and WHOAAA!!! How I missed this before I do not know I am a huge fan of plums/purples and this is divine, I used this as a wet liner and its so pretty, the shimmer still comes through when its wet and its going to be a new fave! I haven't tried it as a shadow yet not sure if it will be too dark as I am quite fair but, will have a play and see but, as a liner its beautiful!
I purchased the 24oz size of this and sadly it fell out of my cupboard and the top of the bottle split but, fortunately not a lot of product leaked and managed to tape it up, doesn't look as good as it should in the bathroom, never mind! The scent itself is supposed to smell of tangerines which I can't smell that much just is a lovely moisturising shower gel, I'm not sure how to describe but, as the previous reviewer said it smells clean. I would re-purchase but, there are other Philosophy shower products I prefer.
This is quite a recent-ish gloss added to the BE line, this is a really lovely sugared bronze with some sparkle, compared to truffle this is quite a bit lighter and really pretty, a HG gloss for me.
This came in one of the newer sets from BE called Be Real. This is a really beautiful Plum Shimmer and Plums and Purples are my real favourites from my BE liner collection. A really pretty shimmer comes from this and is most noticeable when applied dry, it does lose some shimmer when applied wet. I love this. It also comes in a smaller pot but, this will last a long, long time.
This is a brand new product from BE and is a beautiful black shimmer, to me it looks like a really dark midnight sky so looks like it has some blue in it as well. Its sort of similar to the highly sought after Catwoman but, I think this is possibly not as dark, not totally sure as I have never owned Catwoman just from pictures I have seen. As with all BE liners this is very versatile, and this one looks stunning when applied wet, you can still see some shimmer which some liners lose when you apply them wet, also looks really pretty applied dry for a much softer look.
This is a plum with shimmer, when I apply this I don't see a huge amount of shimmer but, that does not detract from this being one of my fave's. Being fair I can rarely use black colours so usually opt for browns and this makes a fantastic alternative, its not too dark but, that said its dark enough to give a really flattering line to the eye.
I really like this colour, it was slightly different and when I got it it reminded me a bit of Flatter by Smashbox. I am very fair and Flatter almost makes me look like I've taken foundation over my lips and added clear gloss, its too much skin colour on me to be flattering whereas this has a little more depth to it and would definitely be an everyday nude for me.
Scrubs -Philosophy - Senorita Margarita hot salt scrub
Clare_3108 6/18/2007 3:38:00 AM
I am absolutely hooked on Philosophy scrubs and body butters, my skin has never been in such good condition! This is a really gorgeous scent, just like the 3-in-1 and can smell this a while after I have used it, it smoothes the skin perfectly, just hope we see a body butter in this fragrance soon!
I have this product in a few colours - Plum, Black & Espresso. This is one of my favourite mascaras gives a really natural look, I love the Espresso as I have blonde lashes and this gives perfect coverage without looking too made-up.
Lotions/ Creams -Philosophy - Grapefruit Body Butter
Clare_3108 5/30/2007 2:50:00 AM
This is one of the newer body butters from Philosophy in Grapefruit which is a scent I just love, the scent on this is not overly strong which is good but, the scent did not last long at all! Some of the other butters I have used seemed to have the scent linger for quite some time but, this one faded within an hour. As with all the other body butters this has a beautiful texture and makes skin so soft and super hydrated, I would re-purchase this but, would not be a first choice.
Lotions/ Creams -Philosophy - Red Delicious Apple Body Butter
Clare_3108 5/28/2007 4:05:00 PM
First of all I have to say I am hooked on these body butters, having tried other body butters these are IMO the best, super nourishing and as with everything Philosophy the quality is superb. I have not used the 3-in-1 so not sure how true the scent of the body butter is to that but, what I do know is the apple body butter smells absolutely divine! A beautiful fresh and clean scent, the cream/butter is a pinkish shade, nice and girly! Leaves the skin super-hydrated.
Lotions/ Creams -Philosophy - Empowermint Body Butter
Clare_3108 5/28/2007 3:59:00 PM
First of all I have to say I am hooked on these body butters, having tried other body butters these are IMO the best, super nourishing and as with everything Philosophy the quality is superb. This for me left a slight tingly cooling effect on my skin, its not that noticeable so thought it could make a great aftersun, so it will be coming away with me in September! This scent is just like the 3-in-1 absolutely love this one!
Eyeliner -Smashbox - Celeb Cream Eye Liner Palette
Clare_3108 5/16/2007 3:23:00 AM
Smashbox cream eyeliners are brilliant, so easy to apply however, they don't last long on me and need to be re-applied at least once through the day, that is until I discovered Urban Decay Primer Potion and now they don't budge until I want to take them off. Anyway, back to the product IMO this is the best eyeliner palette Smashbox have come up with, someone has already poosted the colours so won't repeat that but, these are so pretty and wearable, the brown and plum colours are so divine and suit my green eyes beautifully. I hope Smashbox bring these both out in full sizes one day! All the other colours are excellent too the Gold and Silver are divine although maybe not everyone will like them, the Silver was a little light for me, and I am even very fair but, would be great to highlight the lower lashline. This is so hard to get hold of now even from ebay which is a shame as I would definitely re-purchase.
