Ew! This smells like burnt rubber mixed with like 2 little itty bitty drops of vanilla. It smelled phenomenal in the store, I could NOT stop picking it up and smelling it! When I got home, cut it and used some the yucky wax smell came out and not I can't stop myself from moving it to the bottom of my lush collection, buried, for no one to find! It's really drying too, just awful! Would not repurchase it.
I fell in LOVE with this! Being about NC25 ish, This colour looked great on me. I used it with NO primer, the pigmentation was fantastic and I put it all over the lid with some reflective brown in the crease from ELF and it looked AMAZING! This is my first eyeshadow from MAC and it is sooo pretty. Its like a rose gold champagne colour and it is sooo gorgeous. However, after about 6 or 7 hours I noticed some slight creasing where some of the colour and glitter gathered in the crease but it was barely noticeable and with a primer that wouldn't have existed. Plus, the creasing didn't get worse at all it stayed the same until when I wanted to take it off. I put it on at 10am and wore it til' around 8:30pm and i had a great experience. Will definitely repurchase!
I hate this! No lather, drying and overpowering. Not a happy purchase.
I smelled this at the store and I loved the scent. It smelled kind of like candy apples with a hint of floral and musk. It fizzed nicely and was very moisturizing. The scent lingered and was strong on my skin for hours. And the bathroom smelled heavenly. It didn't leave residue and foamed slightly. I actually kept the sticker and I could still smell the scent of so white on the sticker for around 3 weeks straight! Amazed, a bit disappointed that it only yields one bath though. Lush, make this bigger!
This is one purchase im NOT happy with. I love lush and have for a long time, but first of all, the scent! It smells like wax, and rubber, and smoke, it's disgusting! I didn't even want to give it to my sister to smell. Awful! The scent was enough to make me walk away the first time. The second time I came round because I had a very flaky scalp and it was often commented on and it started affecting my self esteem. So, in panic, I decided to give this a try. It dried out my hair chronically so much that it took 5 washes at least with my tousle me softly shampoo and conditioner from clairol to fix it, along with daily serums and moisturizers. It got mushy in the tin and all yuck, and it didn't even work, after using it for over 2 months, and then my hair was practically dead and I had to get 4 inches chopped off! This was a pretty expensive purchase however I am glad that there is no packaging and waste to this product. A very disappointing spit take from lush.
Sure, this brush is nice and stiff, can pack on color nicely, and even add highlight. And don't get me wrong, I quite like this brush. It's just here in lil' ol' New Zealand we have to pay around 50-60 dollars, which is completely UNWORTH it. Thankfully I only got it as a gift so didn't have to waste the money myself. The handle is nice and sturdy, of high quality. But the bristles ended up scratching my skin, which was not a nice feeling. Plus, I got a 15 pc set off of E-Bay for 12 bucks, and there was a brush in there that did the exact same job as the 239, except a bit better. I prefer that no-name brand of brush even better than the 239.
This is a GORGEOUS fragrance!! I love how it smells floral, sweet and feminine. The packaging is so cute and I wear this pretty much every day! I also love how it doesn't have that strong alcoholic scent in there, which makes it perfect for everyday wear and anything else!!
I really like it. It's not waterproof like it says, which is why it's only 3 lippies. But the pigmentation is nice and it's perfectly black. Stunning.

Not bad. Nice color, staying power isn't that good. Nice product for a dollar.

Don't really like it that much. Pigmentation's crap, and I find the teensy mirror very UN-useful. The sponge applicator fell apart so easily, not that I would use it anyway. But this is the only quad out of my 3 quads that I ordered that didn't crack in the lid. Pft. No thank you.
Really did like the shadows. Lovely pigment and staying power is nice. However, the plastic package cracked really badly and a piece of plastic actually fell out! :(

Good lord! First off, when it arrived ELF had somehow detached the lid off the palette, so I found it hard to pick it up without the lid coming off. Fixed it with a bit of blue tack but there was still a crack in the plastic lid!! Also, this happened with 2 out of 3 of these palettes! But overall the colors are nice, average pigmentation. Packaging is absolutely a load of bull tho.
First off, EWWW!!!! I absolutely DETEST the smell! It smells like chemicals, nail polish remover and old socks! Didn't work much and I think the cloudiness is a little unhygienic. EDIT: Okay, so I tried it again when I had this huge pimple/zit. I popped it and a load of gross oil came out, as it does, and I put the Zit Zapper on it and overnight it reduces the redness and closes it up to block out further bacteria. A definite repurchase!

I quite like these as a sheer lipgloss but don't really see them being anything like a liquid lipstick. I got mine in the shade Raspberry and quite liked the color on the site and in the tube. Giving it two lippies because I think it would work great as a sheer gloss. The color doesn't really show up that much.
I must have gotten a good one. The bristles weren't stuck together but it didn't pack on color very well. I will still buy this again, just because I like the bristles(although they are a bit prickly) and I like the packaging.
