This has a kind of odd scent and at first I really wasn't sure what I thought of it, but it has grown on me a bit. This mix of roses and the cocoa butter can be a little off putting, but the lotion itself is nice. I likely won't get this again as I find it a little heavy for me.
I love this scent! This is my favorite soap from lush!
While this did leave my skin feeling very smooth, it has not helped at all with my acne. I find this also leaves my skin grey from the charcoal, and I have to use another cleanser to remove that, just using toner did not help.
I love this scent!! I fell in love with the lotion and was so disappointing when it was discontinued. This perfume makes up for it!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Juliette has a Gun - Lady Vengeance

I ordered a sample vial of this perfume to see if I would like it and I am in love. The note in this perfume are fairly simple, consisting of: bulgarian rose, vanilla, and patchouli. Despite the simplicity, this is an extremely seductive fragrance. I will be rushing out to buy a full sized bottle now!
Colour: This colour is wonderful and super sparkly. The base is a clear polish, and it is just packed with fine blue glitter. There seems to be a darker sapphire blue glitter, as well as a lighter blue glitter in the polish, so it ends up with an almost holo look. Finish: As will all glitter polishes, this will need a good top coat, or several. It dries very rough, and tends to "eat" top coat like it is going out of style. I needed to put on at least 3 coats of top coat, and even then, it likely could have used another to be completely smooth. A thicker top coat would likely be better than what I used. Application & Formula: This went on very easily. It was the perfect consistency and very easy to apply. It only needed two coats to be completely opaque. This also dries pretty quickly. Pros: Very densely packed glitter! The colour is a wonderful sapphire blue Easy to apply, great formula and consistency. Cons: It does "eat" top coat. You will need several coats to get it smooth. Like all glitter polishes, this can take a bit of work to remove. Final Verdict: I love this polish! I would recommend anyone looking for a blinged blue glitter polish. It is very easy to apply, goes on smoothly, and doesn't need a tone of coats to be opaque.
Colour: This is a dark burgundy duochrome polish with a gold/green tint to it. In some lights this polish is an almost brown shade. I was a little dissapointed with the polish once applied, and I can't quite pinpoint why. It does have a greenish/gold duochrome effect, but for some reason, it just doesn't have that "wow" factor I was hoping for. Finish: Super glossy, you could definitely skip the top coat in a pinch. Application & Formula: This applied very very sheer, and I need three coats to get it opac. The application however, was very very nice. This polish is just the right consistency. It isn't at all gooey, and it isn't so thin that you hazard polish everywhere. Pros: The application is wonderful! I love the handle on this bottle, it is so easy to hold. The consistency is absolutely perfect. Cons: Does need a few coats for opacity. There are no major issues with this polish. It just doesn't do it for me for some reason Final Verdict: I like this polish, and will use it again, but it just didn't wow me as I had hoped. This could be simply due to the fact that I had built up how amazing it was going to be in my mind, and then it sort of fell flat for me.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri - Lickety Split Lime

Colour: A bright lime green. This is a touch on the khaki side. Finish: A great glossy green, it is however a little streaky is spots. This likely could have used a 3rd coat to be honest. Application & Formula: This initially went on kind of streaky, but it evened out nicely after two coats. The consistency of this polish was easy to work with, not to thick or gloopy at all, but as with this brand in general, you need to be careful to not keep the bottle open too long, as they do have a tendency to get gloop up. Pros: The colour is very bright, but not neon. Dries very quickly. The cost! I have a limited budget for nail polish, so the lower price of this is great! Cons: It is a little streaky The brush. I still really dislike this brush style!
Palettes -Unlisted Brand - BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Palette

Just let me start off by saying that I love this pallet. The shadow is decently pigmented and goes on smoothly. It is easily blended, and there is just so much variety in the pallet. Many of the colours are not for everyday use, but just as many are. I would definitely recommend this pallet.
This is a wonderful ruby red glitter polish. The base is a very lightly tinted red colour and it is full of varying sized glitter. It is perfect over red polish for just a bit of shimmer, or three coats on it's own will be opaque.
This wonderful deep green polish is chalk full of shimmering glass flecks, giving it a very festive glow. Two coats is all you need to get it opaque. It goes on smooth, and isn't at all streaky. Love it
Love this polish! It is a lovely sheer red polish with gorgeous flakies in it. This polish goes on wonderfully. The consistency is perfect. This is great over another polish, or on its own. You will need several coats to get it opaque.
I got this with a set from China Glaze, and haven't really found much of a use for it. It glows lightly if you keep it under a light for a time. Goes on easily, though it did take a while to dry. I wouldn't buy it again, simply because I do not use it.

I have a couple black crackle polishes, and this one is by far my favorite. It was easy to apply, not messy, and crackles nicely!
This was almost completely opaque with only one coat! It is a wonderful shimmery dark grey. The consistency is absolutely perfect.
