I've been using the more expensive mascaras such as Lancome Hypnose and Estee Lauder Magnascopic, but i needed a cheap waterproof alternative for the days i go to the beach and i am totally impressed with this one. with a few coats my lashes really do get that fake eyelash look, and being waterproof, it won't budge all day. i'm so smitten with this mascara i'm not sure i'll replace my Hypnose one when it runs out because i can get the same great look for more than half the price with this Maybellene one!
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Glass Shine in Pink Iridescence

the best thing about this lip gloss is the flavour, it is so sweet and nice, but apart from that, it is pretty disappointing. i think half of it ended up on my fingers and tissues after it kept spilling out of the tube, which is my ultimate pet hate when it comes to lip glosses! the packaging really does suck, apart from the spilling problem, for the amount of money they charge for this lip gloss, L'Oreal could have bothered to make it look a bit more pretty and less like an industrial tube of paint. the colour is ok, but it definitely isn't as glossy as it should be
I got this free with a magazine and it's the best free magazine gift i've ever got! the shade is C1019 and it looks like an orange glitter colour in the package. i was pleasantly surprised when i used it though, it doesn't look orange at all, but has subtle bronze-coloured shimmery pigments that compliment summer-bronze make-up looks really well. it is thick and looks lovely and glossy. the only complaint i have is that the glittery pigments are a little too thick - unlike the glittery pigments in lancome Star Gloss - you can feel them on your lips which is a little offputting. apart from that, this gloss is a great cheap alternative for those who don't want to spend a small fortune on lip gloss!
this has to be my all time favourite lip gloss, and i've tried them all - Juicy Tubes, Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Gloss, Dior Addict Gloss, Revlon and L'Oreal glosses - and this one really is the best. the packaging is beautiful and stylish and i love the wand/brush applicator - so much cleaner and easier than the tube application of the Juicy Tubes. the shimmery effect is my favourite part, it looks magical! my only complaint is the flavour - it kinda tastes like you've just sprayed perfume on your wrist and then licked it, but the gloss looks so amazing i'm willing to let it slide
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Skinlights Glosslights in Opal 01

I got this super-cheap on ebay so i wasn't really expecting much because i can't go past the more expensive lip glosses like lancome star gloss and juicy tubes. i didn't have a problem with the smell at first but then when i read in another review that it smelt like bad oranges, i started to really hate the smell! the consistency is really thin and there's pretty much no staying power. i'd recommend investing in a higher quality gloss instead of this one, i'm glad i didn't pay full price for it cause i'd be really disappointed
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - Addict Lip Gloss- A Sip of Lemonade-001

lovely lip gloss, if you want a clear lip gloss with a great consistency, look and taste - it really does taste and smell like lemonade - i'd recommend investing in this. the packaging looks great and the wand applicator is so much easier than the tube packaging of the Juicy Tubes
Gorgeous flavour, tastes like fruit loops and the shade is just great, it's a sheer, warm colour that works perfectly with bronze-coloured make-up. i'll definitely buy this again when it runs out!
Firstly can i say i LOVE the way this lipgloss looks in the package, it seriously looks like a bottled rainbow - i don't want to use it because it's too pretty! it's not anything special when you put in on though, it's lovely and thick and the flavour is ok, but it has no colour and is pretty much a good quality thick, clear gloss that looks awesome in the package
Gorgeous lip gloss, the flavour is nice, i prefer the taste of Simmer or Dreamsicle though. the colour is beatiful, it is a sheer pink colour and the shimmering particles look great. i wouldn't buy a full size one because i like using a lot of different lip glosses but i'd definitely recommend picking one up on ebay for a fraction of the cost
Fabulous flavour, good consistency, not much colour though and i prefer a gloss with a bit of shimmer in it. i got this as a gift with purchase and i wouldn't buy a full size one because there are much nicer glosses out there.
