Polishes -China Glaze - Wireless Holographic Topcoat

I got this today, ive been applying it over several different colours of polishes and it looks amazing on all of them., but especially nice on greys and browns and really pale shades. I ordered it online so i expected a glitter polish, its sooo different from that, the glitter is very, very fine and it enhances a polish rather than add to it..if that makes sense. Its very pretty. Great application, wide brush so really quick also. Dries like a regular polish, but i would apply a 'proper' topcoat after though, because i have had it on for a few hours and it doesnt look that great and there is a dent.

rubbish, doesnt do anythimg it claims
I bought this within a kit from QVC in Medium-deep which is the second darkest colour they do. I got the bottle out the prackaging, and the colour deep so to be quite a bit darker than i oringanlly thought in the bottle. I came to apply it, its very thick and dense very much like a liquid concealer. It took the tiniest amount to do my entire face. I did have to blend a little bit as the colour isnt really an exact match but thats the way i like it really. Ive just appiled this so i have no idea about staying power, it deffinatly gives coverage though but which quite a sheer dewy finish. I have matted it down with BE mineral foundation as it looks really good so far. will edit after second use x
The mascara is very, very wet, one of the wettest i have ever used. I bought it within a kit from QVC| so id finished doing my eyeshawdow and liner etc. came to apply this-and of course it manages to smudge all over my freshly down makeup. Like the reveiwer below it creates dreadful spiderlashes...but i tried it on the other eye then, and it was okay less spider-like i assume its because i had less product on the brush. Very black, did cover the entire lash in pigment...didnt hold for the rest of the day, Was quite easy to break down with some olive oil.

It smells sooo cheap and horrible, i can barley pronouce any of the ingredients, ive noticed no difference on my skin Except the fact i apply it half an hour later my skin feels dryer than it did when i first applied it. Its made my hands start to peel. To be honest i bought it because it was £2, i guess you get what you pay for. If it let me id rate it Zero
Skincare - Face -Liz Earle - Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

ive rated this a 5 for pricing, because of its clay base you have to use alot of the product so you can use it like a cleanser otherwise you end up dragging your skin around which causes even more problems, and a full size pump bottle i thinks its 100ml only lasts maybe 3-4weeks and thats being conservative, and its £11. thats £132 a year. It certainly didnt remove much of my makeup, it didnts clean my skin. Im not sure if its the weather as its hot now, but since i used this a few times my pores seem to on enlarged and it could be hormonal but horrible breakouts, lumps around my hairline :(...the best all natural ingredents cleasner is AD Skin...its the best cleasner ive used so far.
Toners -Liz Earle - Liz Earle Instant Boost skin tonic

Ive never used a toner before except Decleor and i just assumed it was to get to remover the excess cleasner that the water didnt remove? Ive noticed no difference in my skin using this product, which could be a good thing as i used it several times when i was being very lazy as a makeupremover, i wear alooooooot of makeup it didnt remove everything (concealer) but it was fine, my skin felt dry after using it but i think thats down to the makeup. I dont think this is a toner, i think it sells on the basis that its quite nice to use and its different to what i would think as a convential toner.
Rubbish. Doesnt do anything than blacken my lashes...and what mascara of any brand or price doesnt do that? Its all hyped up marketing that i thik that must sell this product. The brush is more akward than anything, its so easy to get the mascara where you dont want it, and so hard to get the mascara where you do want it. Adds no curl or length. Overpriced as well, i have a similar view on other benefit products
Really upset when i couldnt reach the bottom of the bottle, i love the color soo much goes perfect with my skin tone, i really do wear this all time at least half of the year...(well not quite) always get completements when i wear this colour....always :D x
This is a really difficult foundation to work with, its soooooo glitter-ful, and i only relised this today because ater i applied it with smashox foundation brush i had to wait a few mins for it to dry, so then when i come to pat it down with a spogne it doesnt just come of the sponge. And the sponge is always covered in glitter. I thought something stila would come up with would be a bit more sophisticated. I then go on to do the usual an apply my bare escentuals foundation on top. Its not the best colour, i mean im quite light toned, just very olive and i still use the darkest color of this foundation. Not this best foundation to buy...for me x
Made my nails yellow, and when i stopped applying made my nails break down and peel...just doesnt work for me, luckliy i got is discounted but even if it does work on others the price is ridclous for 15ml of product that only helps your nails for only the time youve actually got it on your nails i recomend Prostrong
Made nooo difference whatsoever, no matter what i did: I tried applying one coat of this then instantly applying color I tried applying one coat, leaving it for a while, then applying color I tried applying two coats and repeating the first I tried applying two coats and repeating the second I tried applying both of the above and then using a base coat I really did try everything i could think of Dont work Really Dont work I think the concept is that it evaporates any oil off the nail, allowing the color to stick to the nail bed better, but dont work.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

Great price for mac just £10 and it lasted me around a year before it tried out, and luckliy i didnt have much left so i didnt feel as though id wasted alot. Great color, true true black apply it so easily using a very very fine liner brush, but ive found with more desner brushes such as and angled eyebrow/liner brush the line isnt to me as fluid or smooth, i think this i mainly down to the texture as its drier than most gel liners ive tried. LASTS ALL DAY, excuse the capitals but it really really is black and really really does stay all day.
Soooo sensual and sexual scent, i love it so much, its relativi;ly sweet but not so sweet men are a bit overpowered about it, ive had so many compliments everytime i wear this. The packaging is just as gorgeous. And recently i discoverd this box and the Agent Provocatuer perfume counter in the store, and i wondered what it were, and when i opened it it was cream, enriched with the same scent i put it on the back on my hand and then later relised there was this gorgeous pink sheen is so feminine and unique...
I bought the 500ml pump action bottle from qvc, good value at £28...removes makeup, but i sometimes i feel it only removes makeup that water alone could remove. I left my skin aching for moisterizer afterwards....wouldnt buy again
