I recieved a sample of this (the PRO version) and thought why not try it. I have to say Im VERY impressed! I can notice and feel a definitely tightening around my eyes making me look more awake when I dont feel it!!! I am going to be purchasing this in the current campaign for £10 as I love it! Defo worth the £10 (wouldnt pay any more than that tho!) as it really does work! Im 25, mum of two under 4 so definitely need a bit of a lift in the eye area! Disrupted nights and early starts do nothing for my eye area and this stuff gets rid of all that!!!
I recieved a sample of this and instantly fell in love with it! Im not a perfume snob, I wear anything from a £2 vanilla body spray from Boots to a £60 perfume by Roberto Cavalli! So I tried this and loved it! A lovely, light fragrance perfect for everyday use!!! I love the bottle, looks a lot more expensive than it is, and its Herve Leger at the end of the day! I mean HELLO? Lol! I love it, and even better my mum is ordering me the full sized bottle for my birthday next month :D Cant wait :)
I would score this a 4.5 if i could BUT it is worth the 5 lippies so what the heck! I have heard about this mascara, but not enough to make me wanna go out an buy it. I was too happy sticking with my HG Max Factor False Lash Effect so idnt really think about it much. Until yesterday. I was walking round Debenhams at the Trafford Centre waiting for my hubby and daughter to come back from a show in the food area, and I stumbled across this at the Benefit counter. The SA came over and promptly launched into all the details of this mascara. I was then asked if I wanted to try it, well itd be rude not to! The SA did one eye first and showed me the difference and it was VERY noticable. She did the other and I just thought, I GOTTA have it!!!! I was a bit hesitant about the £18 price tag but thought I gotta do it. This morning I tried it properly and it was amazing! About 4 coats of this stuff and my lashes were full and long and looked so defined it was amamzing!!! Now, the reason i wanted to score it 4.5 is the texture. Its rather different than anything Ive used before. As others have mentioned, its almost sticky. BUT this wont be an issue once youve used it, BELIEVE ME! The brush is amazing and coats the lashes perfectly, and the end "spikes" help reach the most awkward of outer and inner lashes!!!! Ive had comments on my lashes today and feel great!!!! Another plus point is there is no flaking (due to "sticky" texture), no smudging and no afternoon panda eyes!!! This really is worth the price tag. This is now my HG mascara without a shadow of a doubt! EDIT: OK, after a month of wearing this, I have to say its NOT my HG. Ive noticed that after an hour or so of wearing this, I have "lower lash smudges" under my eyes, which is a pet hate of mine. So I have taken off a lippy for that. EDIT 2: After a second month of wearing it I have noticed the initial amazing results have long gone! I HATE this mascara!!! This mascara no longer lengthens like it did those first few times, impossible to build volume as the formula seems to have thickened so it clumps. Also, if you even knock your eyelashes they stick together!!! Im back to my original HG mascara, Max Factor False Lashe Efeect Fusion, and Im wondering why i even bothered straying! Dont waste your money on this, its blatent hype is nowt more then propaganda!

I have recently purchased this and have to say I LOVE IT! I love my eyeliners, specifically the Mac ones but this is lovely for daytime use! I have baby blue eyes and this colour really makes them pop! I smudge some on my upper lash line and just under my lower lash line for a daytime friendly smokey look! I love it, the purple and shimmer is very subtle but thats perfect for me, as i have the Urban Decay heavy metal eyeliner for the really big glitter! I have no issues with its gliding formula, found it glided on as easy as others!!!! Love it, gonna get the rest of the colours :D

I do love this eyeliner. Im going to use it against my Loreal red/black eyeshadow for a glitter pop. I took a lippie off for the size of the glitter particles, wish they were just a bit smaller! But on the whole, 2 or 3 coats gives a really mazing glitter line! x
This is my new daytime HG eyeshadow! lovely colour, amazing pigment, ust amazing!
I have this in the Carbon Gloss and I have to say its the only liquid liner I have ever repurchased! I use it every now and then when I fancy a change and use it on nights out A LOT!! I love the tip of the liner, its like a very narrow felt tip nib, and I find its a lot easier to control than the brush tips!!! I have to apply a few coats of this liner for it to last properly though, which isnt bad I suppose, especially as it just makes the black line blacker!!! Its easy to get the eyeliner liquid on the tip though, dip it into its casing and shake and there you go!!! I really do love this eyeliner, and will be going back tommorrow to get the sparkly one :) x

I had my hair cut today, going from longish hair to a short choppy bob. My hair is fine and quite flat so I need some product to give it oomph. My lovely hairdresser introduced this to me and used it and WOW! It adds just the right amount of texture to my hair and doesnt leave it looking greasy or overloaded!!!! Made up, will defo rebuy this!
I bought this with the sole intent to use it over my Impassioned Amplified lipstick and its AMAZING! Makes the lipcolour realllly pop!!! I took a lippy off as i wish the applicator was a brush rather than a sponge but thats my only issue :)
OMG how amazing is this lipcolour!!!! I am a nude/pale pink lippy kinda gal, but wanted a drastic change and voila! Anamazing updated look with an amazing colour pop lippy!!!!
I bought this yesterday along with thr Lacura Q10 night cream. In the UK its called Aqua Complete, not Hydra Complete :) I am only using this serum on my forehead and around my eyes at the minute as Im ensuring 100% that my skin takes to it as a lot of products cause me to break out. Anyhow, I used it last night and this morning and i have to say its right up there alongside my Clinique DDMG!!!! It is more of a light lotiony gel, which just sinks straight into your skin leaving no residue behind! I bought some for my mum and it also seems she is a convert after years of using estee lauder, chanel, N07 etc! Honestly, this is worth its weight in gold, such a lovely product to use, and so far no irritation which is already a winner for me :)

I bought this yesterday for £1.99 at my local Aldi with the sole intent to use it on my neck and decolletage as I dont want a sggy or wrinkly neck when im much older (Im 25 - prevention better than cure springs to mind lol). Anyhow, I used it last night and this morning and Im in love with it! It has a nice scent to it, its nice and rich and thick and even better is it sinks into the skin so quick, leaving your skin feeling plump and moisturised!!! It doesnt leave a sticky or greasy filmy residue which a LOT of other brands do (Nivea, Simple, Loreal you get the gist!) which is ace as I dont wanna feel greasy all night and day! I love this product already and will definitely be rebuying!

Right. Well I have scored this 5 lippies, not necessarily for its TM properties, but more its mixability! I mix a mall bit of this with my usual Laura Mercier TM and it adds a light glow and helps the TM glide on better, almost as though Ive got primer on when I havnt! I cant say much for its actual TM prperties, but from what Ive tested on my hand, it has minimal to none coverage, and is more of an illuminator rather than a TM. BUT if you have great skin and just want a little something extra then this may be for you! I usually break out in spots with new makeup but with this mixed in with my TM, I havnt broken out at all (this may be partially to do with my bicarb of soda face scrub that I do daily!), so that in itself is worth a lippy! I got this online for £7, so was a bargain from what I can see!!! I will buy this again, if I ever need to! I only use the tiniest dollop each day so this should last me well over a year or two!!!!
I got this free with a magazine and took it on holiday with me. I adore it! Gives a flirty flush of colour on the cheeks and a cute colour for the lips! You have to be pretty quick when putting it on and blending as it dries super fast, but if you can master that, Im sure you will love it!!! I will definitely be buying again once my bottle runs out!!!!! I cant wait to try the new ChachaTint!!!
These cost £11 BUT my mum got these for me, with the £5 off voucher and her staff discount so they were mega cheap. Anyway, i have been on the search for a decent natural looking bronzer, and the ones I came across were way too shimmery or way too dark. then yesterday I came across these with my mum and I tested it on my hand. I was impressed as it wasnt a dark smudge but a nice tan glow. My mum bought them for me as a lil present, and today I used them for the first time. I used my Smashbox halo powder brush and its given me a flawless glow that looks lovely, natural and doesnt leave me looking like ive been Tangoed!!!! I love these and will defo repurchase!!!!
