this is insane! for me its really good - gets rid of shine, decreases pore size, does all i want it to, but does not provide coverage of imperfections, is for 'airbrushed' finish.
I loved this product! It stays on, its great for carrying around, the colour match is perfect (wide variety) and good for putting over moisturizer/primer if you just want light coverage in just parts of your face. Definitely worth the money.
I really really like this mascara. Today is my first day wearing it and it seems good. PROS: Excellent brush shape Doesnt clump Brings out long lashes Volumizes at the same time as lengthening Very Cheap at £5.99! Hasn't irritated my eyes so far CONS: Hard to bring out the inside corner lashes as the thick part of the brush is on the wrong end! It would be good if it were on both ends Overall good. But havent worn with contacts yet so tomorrow could be another story!

Nah...I dont like it....it didnt spread the foundation evenly - i used it with NARS Sheer Glow and Bobbi Brown Moisturising Foundation and it just didnt work for me. I will stick to Sephora brushes and branded ones from now on i think!!!
Yeah i really liked it...i have it in Ivy, it lasts, doesnt flake/smudge...pretty good! although it is one of the trickier eyeliner versions to apply.obviously you have to have teensyweensy eyeliner brush.
What useless stuff. 3 useless shades that are too orange, so thick you could probably squeeze it into clay and make little men with it and basically just don't buy it!
I liked it...it's for people who have time to fiddle around in the mornings though with lash combs etc...you HAVE to comb it through after unless you want about 5 clumpy eyelashes above each lid! Does give good length though once done and separates effectively. Comes off very easily also.
I bought both Firebird and Supernova in a set from Sephora when in Toronto last February. I wasnt impressed at all - they kind of gave the effect of using old mascaras that are running out which make your lashes clump, stick together or don't actually put any on at all. Not worth it.

Another product that didnt really help my thick curly Mediterranean hair! It seemed to make it more greasy than anything and wasnt strong enough to be used on it's own to combat frizz (which is my hair's middle name) Back to the hunt for a perfect anti - frizz product (or straighteners that dont damage your hair!
Mmmm....love it! It reminds me of parma violets and sugary sweets! It can be strong and almost chemically sweet at first but after a few minutes it is lovely. One of my favourite perfumes! And a gorgeous bottle of course!
Love it - smells gorgeous ( as all Bobbi Brown products do) and it's great for dry skin like mine. I have it in Warm Ivory which seems to work with my pale skin tone which has slightly yellow undertones. Do not put powder over it though and you must prepare your skin before applying otherwise it does not stay.

Great if you want light coverage at times when you have no blemishes whatsoever. I can only use it when spot - free (which seems to be rare these days) but it is good for on holiday and on sunny days. Although with powder on top it goes rather strange in the sun - it kind of melts!
Oh how I adore this mascara! I bought it expecting another worthless buy of cheap mascara and thinking it will probably react with my sensitive contact lense wearing eyes when i was pleasantly surprised! It gives length, volume and drama when layered and is even better when combed through. Definitely worth it!
Personally I thought this powder was fairly poor. They do not have enough shades for it to match the NARS foundations and it went on extremely noticeably. One good thing though was that it lasts! I have it in Eden and it is too orange when worn with the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Gobi (which is exactly my skin tone) It must be applied with a powder brush and not the puff provided which just clogs up and layers it on by the inch.

Yeesh...why do I ever bother buying cheap foundation!? I will say the oonly thing about it thats good is the bottle! It clogs pores, goes shiny and doesnt last as well as me having the lightest shade it comes in (Ivory) and it still being too orange for my very fair skin!
