Eye Shadow -Chanel - Ombre Essentielle No. 90 Fauve
AxlsRose 9/14/2012 7:39:00 AM
Lovely taupe/purple shade that looks really good with my hazel (green/gold) eyes. Stayed on all day..applied at 7:15am, still on at 9pm. No creasing or smudging. Lovely silvery glitter throughout. I would repurchase due to the staying power, and the shade which seems to be a wonderful compliment for my eye colour.
Yes I would buy this product again - it is amazing!!!! I bought this after reading rave reviews and wanting something to ensure I got through my sisters summer wedding without my makeup melting!! This stuff is incredible. I've used mattifying lotions before and stopped using them as they make my skin look dry. This works to just set your makeup without making your skin look dry and it stays perfect for hours!! I use it before using mascara...not sure if that's necessary though. But this is just a magical HG product
Love this. It smells beautiful, it's lovely to use. Thick, creamy and cleans really well.
I love this used on my lids it goes really well with my hazel greeny gold kind of eye colour. It's a lovely bronzey brown and stays on really well all day.
I like this, it's a pretty muted kind of golden toned pink. I didnt like it as a colour on it's own on the lid, but I love it paired with Mulch. I used Mulch on my lid, then blend some of Girlie up over the top more toward the brow. It goes beautifully blended with Mulch.
I love this cleanser. I like the look of the gel and I love how it comes out of the tube as a gel, then transforms to a lovely gooey thick honey coloured gel on my skin. It really cleans well, removing all traces of makeup. I then apply some water to my hands and starts massaging the oil with my wet hands and the oil transforms to a lovely light milky emulsion. I then clean it off and my skin feels fresh and totally clean. I will repurchase. I wish I could buy this from SNet in a Salon sized tube.
Conditioner -Yes To Carrots - Pampering Hair Mud Conditioner

This is a great hair treatment. Leaves hair soft, and very smooth and manageable. In fact, I've tried $$$ brands like Kerastase and the ones with the Moroccan oils in them and this is better. It's cheap - check out the ingredients list, packed with great things like almond oil cant remember what else, but this is better than the expensive trendy hair treatments I've tried. A great product from a brand Against Animal Testing which is important to me.
I thought this would be a little paler and more of a soft natural pink fleshy kind of colour. On my lips it's just like the colour in the tube - like a burgundy dark kind of colour. Too dark, sorry but I've never seen babies with lips this red.
I smelled this on someone and had to ask what it was cause I'd spent ages thinking, everytime she walks in this room she smells so clean and soapy and just lovely. To me, it has a clean, fresh soapy smell....just someone who is clean and really lovely smelling. I love it.
I bought this from Strawberry Net, based on the good reviews, cause I liked the thought of smelling fresh and clean and soapy. I couldnt have been more disappointed!! This doesnt smell like soap it smells like lemony cleaning products!! Like something I've cleaned my floor with. Disgusting. I sprayed some on my cardigan and have just washed it so the smell isnt there tomorrow when I have to wear it to work. Nice if you like the idea of smelling like floor cleaning products, or a really lemony smelling laundry detergent - that's not something I aspire to.
The Shea range is my favourite from TBS. I love the clean kind of soapy smell it has. This is very moisturising. Lovely product for anyone who loves a clean fresh smell and has dry skin
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Mango Body Butter

This is the best The Body Shop Body Butter i've tried. It smells heavenly, I love the texture and it is really really moisturising. It's the best for dry skin. The smell is perfect for summer, but great for anytime. The only problem I have with this brand is that it's very expensive.
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - St.Tropez Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze
AxlsRose 11/28/2010 12:50:00 AM
This is the best self tanning product I've ever used, and probably the best one on the market. I always use those latex gloves to apply it. It always goes on evenly and looks totally natural. It leaves a totally realistic olive tan which deepens with each additional application - unless you leave it to wear off completely before re-applying. It dries on the skin almost straight away, so doesnt stain clothes. You do have to stay dry for around 4 hours, so I apply it of a morning. You will notice some residual product wash off in the shower, but the tan has already worked it's magic on your skin by then. This product is expensive, but it lasts for ages, and the no mess, perfect application, and no overpowering awful smell and realistic results make it worth every cent.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Natural Instinct - Natural Foaming Facial Cleanser

Ive been using this for around 3 - 4 weeks since I bought it and shelved it, so had it on hand when my regular Dermalogica Cleanser ran out - I thought I'd use this before getting another cleanser......mistake This has done to my skin, what their shampoo did to my scalp - completely stripped it and dried it out. The shampoo has given me dandruff every time I've used it...now I see how dry my skin is since using this; I wont ever buy it again. Took me a while to figure out what was doing this, I now realise it's this cleanser. This may say "natural" but it seems to be a nasty concoction of detergent that they've added lavendar to.
Lip Gloss -Clarins - Instant Light Lip Perfector - Rose Shimmer

Really like this, and Im not a lip gloss kind of girl. Goes on easily, doesnt look like I have jam on my lips just lovely and natural lips with a hint of colour. I have this in Number 2 (apricot) but would also like to try the number 1 pink shade. I really love how conditioning this product is to my lips. Makes my lips feel and look great during wear and afterwards. I will keep using for the lovely natural look it gives, and the lovely effect it gives my lips; Ive used it twice so far and my lips have never looked and felt so smooth.
