Shampoo -Modern Organic Products (MOP) - Mixed Greens Shampoo

I really wanted to like this. It smells great, but it seems to leave my hair feeling sticky. I also have the conditioner so I don't which one is the culprit - maybe it's both. I will use it up - I will either alternate it with my Pantene Gentle Care shampoo which is great, leave hair really soft or use it as a bubble bath.
I've never really liked Christian Dior perfumes though I wish I could. This smells absolutely divine on my mum so I had to have it. I used mine up and have recently repurchased the biggest size. Feminine and sparkling. Great all year round.
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Acqua di Gio (for women)

This is the first perfume I owned (before I used to go into my sister's cupboards to get my fix!) It's very fresh smelling and feminine. Especially good for summer, though I like it all year round.
I used to dislike this, but would wear it anyway. Gradually I have come to like this very much and often receive compliments which is always nice. Truly a classic.
Beautiful, beautiful fragrance. Sophisticated and warm. I wear it all year round. Has good staying power too. The body lotion is also worth investing in. It's very moisturising so worth the money unlike some matching body lotions which are runny and sticky.
I have to concur. This is very good. Gives a beautiful glowy flush. I am quite fair but I use this also when I've fake tanned and it still gives that beautiful glow. Looks very natural and stunning at the same time. Highly recommended.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

This is a really good mascara. I like my lashes to stand out and this does the job. I'm not too bothered about curling mascaras as I curl my lashes anyway, but I was quite impressed with its curling properties. A word of advise, I have learned that the best way to apply mascara is to wipe the wand first and then apply. This still gives that beautiful dramatic look but without the clumps, which you will get if you don't wipe the brush -regardless of what mascara you use. UPDATE: I've had this for a while and I have experienced some of the problems that other reviewers have written of. First, this started to dry up - and I do replace the lid so that it clicks. I haven't really had this problem with other mascaras. I have also noticed the flakiness that other reviewers have talked about. I still think that this is a really good mascara but I have had to reduce my rating to 4 lippies for these reasons.
Liquid -Becca - Luminous Skin Color sheer foundation

This is a very good foundation which gives a beautiful luminous glow, hence the name! I think this provides pretty good coverage and the colours are very good. I use cashmere and the yellow undertones even out redness. It's quite expensive but so worth it. I also use Becca's concealer which is also brilliant. You will look truly gorgeous if you buy Becca's foundations and concealers. Good coverage but not at all cakey. You will radiate health and beauty.
I absolutely love this mask. It is the best product ever! I have tried quite a few different masks which seem to make absolutely no difference whatsoever. But when I use this my skin looks so radient and revitalised. I have sensitive skin which seems to becoming more prone to breakouts, especially around my chin. Because of this I am always careful about the products I use on my skin. I find that this takes away redness, improves blemishes and calms the skin, plus you also get the exfoliating action of the grains in it. The only thing is that I do not like the new packaging. Before it used to come in a pot. Now you can only buy it in a tube. You don't get as much product out of a tube which seems a little wasteful as this runs out pretty quickly. It also seems runnier in a tube. Nevertheless, I love this product so much that I think it is worth it and will purchase again and again and again. Buy it, buy it now!
I brought this product based on the good reviews. It took me ages to decide to get it, but I finally yielded as I have been looking for a good sparkly purple shadow to create a smoky eye effect to bring out my green eyes. This is awful. When you open the pot, it looks beautiful but once applied it looks muddy and has a very tacky frosted finish. It is also very difficult to apply. If I use very very sparingly I can just about get away with it. It may be that this looks better on those with very dark skintones, but I definitely would not recommend this colour or even this product.
