I like speed but not nearly as much as i like Sonic. Its a sweetie pink shade that works well with pale skin. It lasts ages, smells gorgeous and comes in a cute little tube but i'm not a massive fan of pinks. I've given it a 3 because i love the formula and have reached for it more than i initially thought!
I love this gloss, as its the perfect pink neutral for me, with a lovely shine, gorgeous scent and sweet flavour. The texture is perfect - not too sticky and lasts ages!
I have this in Golden rose, which i received in a free gift bag from No7. It does exactly what it says on the tube, s its very moisturising and lasts well. Okay, its a basic lippy but it works well and i'll probably repurchase.
This doesn;t claim to build sky high eyelashes, so i can't complain about it not doing its job. I'll give it a 4 because of the intense black appearance it gives my blond lashes. I can't say much more about it because it didn't lengthen, it didn't thicken and didn't last very well. Overall, this is a great mascara if you want a natural look - but don;t buy if you are expecting to wear someone else's lashes for the day/night!

This works great for my puffy eyes in the morning and works mircles on spots! Apply a little to a cotton bud and apply - i swear it helps to shrink it and take down the redness!
I use lemon aid often because it helps to keep my eyeshadow on all day. I don't have dark circles, so can't say how effective it is for that but its a perfect match for my skintone - yes, a surprise for me too! I'm NC15, though i don;t appear this yellow in real life and no, i'm not a Simpson! .... So yes, try this as a base. It works very well!
Highlighters -Urban Decay - Hotpants Cool Shimmer Stick

I think this is so much prettier than High beam. I don't know what it is but it just looks so much better on me. I love the cool feeling too and surprised it still does that after the 3 years i've had it!
Last review for the whole range and i'm sick of saying bad things about them all. Sadly, i've left the worst one til last and all i can say is that it looks gray and shimmery on me, which washes me out and makes me look kind of ill! Not at all what i'm looking for. Still, it smells lovely!
Who selected the colours for this range? Bloody hell! I love Burt's bees and its one of my favorite ranges for skin products but here we have a brick red lip product that does nothing (again) for me! Yuk! Don't attempt this if you are super pale!
Again, this is another lip shimmer i just didn't get on at all with. This is worse. If you want ultra shimmery 80's style lips, go for it.. who am i to judge? Its not my look and does less than nothing for me!
Lips -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers in Champagne

Again, like with radiance, there is just way too much shimmer in this - with a slight pink tint. Think of it as though you mixed lots of one of the white tones in the mac pigment range with original burts bees balm. If you like that effect, you'll love this... but i don't! So yet again, i hate to go against old Burt and say no.. yet again!
I would love to have liked this product but its white... what can i say? I'm pale (nc15) and this gave me shimmering white lips, which i don't like at all! It had the classic mint Burt's bees flavour, which i love but the colour did nothing for me. I feel this would be much better for darker skintones. I have all of these now and will probably melt them down and mix with more base to give a lighter colour. None of these worked for me at all.
Overall, i'm not greatly impressed by burts bees lip shimmers, which is a shame because i'm a massive fan of the line. Watermelon is a little too pink for me but if you wear it sparingly, its okay.
Lip Gloss -Hard Candy - Super Shine Lip Gloss in Oxygen
snow_white_suicide 5/4/2008 8:32:00 PM
I'm 25 and i love this gloss - okay, i'm still not ready to grow up, as my make up is less than mature but i avoid crazy glitter glosses now! This is by no means a full on glitter gloss. Its a clear, sticky product that has blue/purple (and occasional green) micro sparkles that adds to the shine and plumps up the lips. It smells gorgeous but i will say the glitter causes the gloss to have a slightly (but ever so) gritty feel if you're in the habit of rubbing your lips together. Overall, i really love this and would recommend to anyone who wanted something a little different to the normal clear glosses.
A gorgeous neutral wash that may not last particularly well but it really moisturises my lips. Lovely natural product with fab packaging... need i say more?
