I like the package as it's strong and compact. No frills and makes a chane with the rectangular shape we are use to. They are not heavy and the finish it's class although not moisturising it lasts a long time. I like the palest shades. I would like another edition with a shiny finish a bit like the Chantecaille LipChics or Chanel Shines even though they don't last as long would be a good adition imho

I like it, Not as refreshing as hermes Orange Verte but it is very nice and fresh although is a bit heavy , love the Orange though and since it's so hard to find a good fragrance and a good bottle design i will vote for a 5.

I love this so much. I didn't expect them to be this good, I had high hopes for Revlon Butters but then none of them suited my colouring. They felt so heavy on my lips. This were next to them and as soon as I swatched them on my arms I knew they would be good, because the texture is fine and sheer so I can reapply as often as I can, they are forgiving and lovely! I bought Sweet Berry and Nude Ingenue, both are pale and not glitter whatsoever, smooth and shiny. I just love them and I hope they bring more colours as the ones I see in UK tend to be very bright and only a couple are wearable day to day. Sweet Berry is a neutral colour polished and lush, and Nude is elegant, it doesn't wash out my lips as it's shiny finish, I usually hate nudes because they wash me out but this is lovely if you are scared of nudes try this shade it's so forgiving. It will change your mind about nudes :)

I went to Boots looking for a Lipstick and I tried the Lancome counter and Clarins but none of them convinced me. I stopped at the cheapest lipsticks stands and Boots 17 was the one... I swatched those in my arm and I just fell in love at the first sight! They are Sheer, Shiny and just a joy to use. There are 10 shades: BEEHIVE: pale Nude ( shade on then right) (aparently this is a cult shade in many blogs, Personally I do not like it much, makes y Pigmentated lips so pale that this sahe does not suit me, but I can see why many might love it. I layer this on top of a dark lipstick or mix it. BELLE: (middle Lipstick in the Picture above) Nude with a hint of warm nude pink beige. Wonderful ! NUDIST PEACH: medium peach FLIRTINIi (LEFT LIPSTICK IN THE PICTURE); cool hot pink & sheer red. (This is such a forgiving shade, it would suit all skin tones. Is a Medium and Sheer red/pink very flatering to use any time of the day. HOLLYWOOD: Sheer cool Red. (This is like a MAC Hot Tahiti, in a sense that if you are scared of RED lipstick this is the one to go for as is sheer and doesn't look scary at all, is buildable so you can add as much red as you like. It#s lovely !) PEACE: Sheer Soft Orange SUGAR DADDY PLUM PERFECTION: Mauve/plum PURPLE HAZE: Dark deep plum. (love this one, is dark and makes my teeth look so white, is a sheer and deep but friednly dark purple, swatched in my arms was delicious to see the shine and tiny microglitter LOVE IT) COOKIE. Brown PRICE: £ 4.59 (Buy 2 get the 3rd Free at Boots UK) CONS: The packaging is very shabby and the caps do not close and after a couple of uses seem to looen up which is a nightmare if you carry it in your bag. - They are rather flagile and can break easily. - Packaging shiny blue is a bit tacky, I would have used Silver or Gold. - Poor staying power. (2 to 3 hours max) PROS: So Cheap Cheap -Fun -Glossy & Shiny -Lovely colours, I could use all 10 and so far I have 6 (Beehive, Belle, Flirtini, Hollywood, Purple Haze and Plum Perfection). -The finish and the use of them can compete with any High End brand any time and give the a run for their money. -Buildable colour _____________________________________ They are just so awesome and fun I just love to get a Lipstick so good, so utterly cool at such price. Just that final touch and make the packaging more compact and I give you 5 stars ! Oh Boy you rock ! Shine On Forever !! How can you not love this blue bullets!
Last time I bought a Liquid Foundation was Chanel Vitalumiere [they also claimed that thing abut the* Light coming from within* ], that translated in my skin to a horrible heavy , greasy mask shine that put me off Liquid for life and switched to powder. [that was 3 or 4 years a go]. I tried a Dior Nude Liquid foundation sample and was pretty much the same old story so I was about to re-purchase another Pressed Powder when .... I had a sample of this [inside a magazine] as do not go to shops and even ask for Liquids no more and I tried it on. And I just loved it. I guess it translated in my skin like my own skin but perfect and even almost flawless, I didn't use any concealer and tbh I hardly use Make Up at all so this is lovely because at any point I felt like I was using make up and it lasted all day. My only complain is that there isn't many shades [ for example the 3 was a bit too dark for me but the 02 was far too pink for my skin tone so I missed a wider choice of colours to be a perfect match but I am happy enough to buy it and the package is awesome, clean and hyegenic (?) and I love to use it and makes my skin look good without the need for concealer or blush because some times I skip that too and some foundations make you look so flat that you need a blush to create some volume on the cheeks. I will buy it again because it has restored my faith in Liquid Foundations and
I don't know why it took me so long to buy those lipsticks! They are not only a reasoble price they also perform and are a joy to have. I used to buy Chantecaille Lip Chics because are between a lip balm , moiturizing and had lovely colours and packaging After this discovery I will never buy them again. GOSH Lip balms are around £7.50 (ish) in UK and Lip Chips £30.00. I have never tried MAC slimlines so I cannot compare those to this. I found that the colours are all stunning and a flatering range for all skintones and hair/eyes colours. The package is clean, it works and doesn't feel cheap and that will brake any minute. IS PERFECT!. The texture is not as heavy as a LipChic but the staying power is superb for a lip balm it lasts and last!. I googled a little and there are many blogs that offer great swaches so if you get the chance have a look because they are absolutely to die for and so far I bought two: perfect Plum and Angel but I will buy 3 more next week as they are on sell at Superdrug (buy one get one free) They rock! and put into shame anyothers around that can be Chantgecaille or Guerlain as before you could say that the packaging was smart ,well Gosh has put that right ! Get some!
I didn't like it at all. The formula was so runny I hated it. The price wasn't too ad b/c it came as a deal with atte About you Top Coat. but Essie is expensive and I wasn't happy with the grey nor the formula. Won't re purchase and will swap.
Lovely , wonderful ! such great colour! I bought You Don't Know Jacquest (OPI) a dark grey, Essie Chinchilly (light grey/greenish) and China Glaze Recycle and this is mmy favourite grey of them all, is a Medium grey, between YDKJ and Chilchilly. Of them all I preffer this the best. Is a blue grey (cool) that suits me better than a warm grey. The formula is beautiful and creamy, applies like a dream and I plan to get a few more. the price is around £3.00 ! is a dream ! Love it ♥
Quantity: 250ml Price: £4.50 I am happy that supermarkets now store organic Hair products. The two conditioners I have used from TS are very thick so as I am doing Co- Wash method I only use them as Conditioners even though this can also be used as a Deep Treatment due to the texture. The Packaging is cute but a pain to use as the conditioner has such a thick texture is a nightmare to get it out, so I had to unscrew the lid and use it that way. Although is sold to be for curly hair it can be used imho with any kind of hair, is rich in Olive Oil and moisturising as well as nourishing, however is also marketed with proteins and the proteins is so down the list that is almost useless. I will buy it again as I use it for Deep treatment and leave it for 15 minutes after Co washing my hair and I am very happy it and also I can get it in my local Tesco. Another plus is the fragrance (organic) that is soo soo lovely, a real treat.

I use this as a Co wash and it's fantastic, It doesn't have any silicones and is full of oils that nourish the hair as well as Niacinamide (Vitamin B), as I use lots to do a co wash the price is great. Sometimes i also use it as a conditioner or a leave in. ♥ Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Elaeis Guineenis (Palm Oil), Behentrimonium Chloride, CI19140 (Yellow5), CI15985 (Yellow 6), Niacinamide, Ribes Nigrum Oil (Black Currant Seed Oil), Saccharum Officinarum Extract (Sugar Cane Extract), Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Olea Europaea Oil (Olive Fruit Oil), Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Linalool, Pyrus Mallus Extract (Apple Fruit Extract), Pyridoxine HCI, Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado Oil), Butyrospermum Parki Butter (Shea Butter), Citric Acid, Lemon Peel Extract, Glycerin, Fragrance.

The miracle product for styling curls and a totally cult status ! Known as Boots Pink The only thing is that it doesn't even come with directions, and if you are going to use it straight from the pot to the hair you will not like it. You need to do the following: - take half tea spoon or less in your hand - mix with a bit of water - You will see the product spread and grow - ready to use all over the hair I usually use it after I have scrunched my hair with a microfibre towel or T-Shirt and got read of the water. then I apply this mixture all over and then lots and lots of gel (silicone free) and Co Wash friendy. Scrunch and apply microfibre towel from 30 mins or as long as I can. ♥ works every time ;)
I absolutelly I agree with auntnett and I have nothing to add. Just buy it it will transform your hair and curls. - Make sure you use a pea size in your hand - Emulsify with a bit of water - Mix - Will turn white and spread -ready to use on your har ♥ Fab stuff !
