I got this recently I love the product! It's more pink thank I thought it would be, but the colour is gorgeous so I don't mind at all. The second you apply it, it feels soft and moisturising. It never dries out my lips and lasts for hours. It's somewhere between lip pencil and lipstick, such a great product. The only thing that's awful is the packaging. It's a plastic pencil so it's hard to sharpen and it doesn't twist up. I don't want to depot it because it's more convenient to apply the way it is now. I'd like to buy more of these but I'll see what happens when I have to sharpen/depot it. Terrible design flaw really, it's a shame because it would be perfect were it not for that.
Mascara -Boots - No. 7 Exceptional Definition Nutrient Enriched Mascara

This is a great mascara! I really liked the brush on this one, there are different sized and shaped bristles on each side so it makes it easier to ensure all lashes are coated. I have quite long lashes, and this mascara coated and defined them very well. There were no clumps, and no problem with over-coating or lashes becoming stuck together. It does dry up quite fast though, which is the only bad thing about it. I'm not sure if I'd buy this one again because of that, but I have bought some other No7 mascaras to try out because they have a big range and I'm curious about them, especially since this one was so good.
I have this in Crystal Pink and it's SO good! Really pretty, I'm a big fan. The colour payoff is great and it's really long lasting. I didn't have a stinging sensation like the other reviewer did, so maybe that's just a sensitivity issue. It's probably better to do a patch test or something before you purchase to check for that though, it sounds unpleasant. I plan to get this in more colours, it's easily the best glitter liner I've owned, I just love it. Great product for creative looks or just to accent regular liner.
I've been using this lately and it's OK. As other reviewers have stated, Step 1 is suited for more of a daytime look. Step 2 does add lots of volume, but makes my lashes stick together like crazy! I think it's because the brush picks up a LOT of product. Even after scraping off the excess, still too much. Lots of eyelash sticking together goes on. Yuck :( I think I'll try the business card trick that's been mentioned here, it might help. Overall I'm not very impressed though. I thought it would be better.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Lippin' Large Lip Plumper - Very Clear

Good product. Thick gloss in a squeezy tube. There is definite plumping, and it doesn't have an unpleasant burn like other plumpers I've used. This one has a cool tingling feeling, quite nice. It doesn't last all that long and it feels a little sticky, but not unbearably so. Well worth the price though, so go for it!
Polishes -Essence - Colour and Go nail polish in Where Is The Party

I love this polish, it's just gorgeous! Nice purple/green duochrome, sort of grey steel looking in some light. Applies evenly and opaque in 2 coats. Got 3 chip free days out of it. Not a bad word to say about it, and Essence polishes are a steal for the price.
Masks -Boots - No7 Heavenly Hydration Moisture Mask

I got this as a gift at xmas time, and I think it's lovely ^_^ It's very interestingly packaged, the product looks like a fluffy pink spiraling cloud inside the bottle! I use it once a week or so as a treat, after a shower and exfoliate. I apply a thin layer, lay back in my recliner, clear my mind and relax, and let it sit on my skin for 10 minutes or so. Feels nice and cool on. You wipe it off with tissue, don't wash. It makes my skin feel fresh and so soft. The pack says you can leave it on overnight too, but I haven't tried that. I might at some point, but just 10 minutes does nicely for me! Highly recommended, I enjoy this product a lot.
I got one of these glosses today on offer for €1! The shade I got is 'Berry Me'. I love it! Smells great, nice strong colour and pretty finish. Makes my lips look nice and full. No glitter either, too many bargain brands have nothing but sparkly glosses, and I'm not a huge fan of that. Also there's no sticky feeling with this one which is always a plus. I must rummage through the bargain bin for more colours. I'm very impressed with this gloss, it's my new favourite!
