Love the colour but it misses out on a top rating as I find the finish too matte, even with sechevite on top!
Nice enough product, I bought it in pear flavour which was really quite a fresh flavour. Didn't taste too sickly or artificial. Really love the packaging and branding, it is the perfect size for keeping in your handbag!
SUCH a pretty colour!! Smooth formula, great packaging as with all Essie polishes. Bought this as a mini but may have to get the full size when I use this up!

Absolutely love this product, it is only product I have found that makes my makeup actually last all day on my skin, even in hot weather! A must have in anyone's collection!
Way too yellow on me, made me look like I had smokers fingers!
Concealers -Collection 2000 - Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

Terrible packaging - the labelling all wears off within days! The actual formula of the concealer is really lovely. Gives a good amount of coverage without looking too opaque. I use this primarily to cover hyper pigmentation ad blemishes. While I have used it under the eyes I have since found other products that work more effectively there, such as Garnier rollerball concealer with caffeine.
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum

Really chic packaging and great product! This really does plump by lashes and allows me to get volume in my lashes without using volumising mascaras (which tend to look really clumpy on me). I use this over my Bobbi Brown extreme lengthening mascara and it s HG for me! I just wish it were a bit cheaper!
Mascara -Bobbi Brown - Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara

I have purchased the full size of this after receiving a sample in my bellabox. This is the best mascara I have ever used, it is HG material for me. Only downsize is the price, wish I could find a cheaper dupe! I find this really separates my lashes and adds length without making it obvious that I am actually wearing a mascara. I wear this over my Dior maximiser lash plumping serum and I get added volume too. Best eye combo I've ever tried!
I've lost count how many of these I have repurchased! I will never buy another brand top cost ever again. This makes my manicure look salon 'done'!
I found this way too chalky on my skin! Never find myself reaching for this ever! If you want a similar colour but better formulation go with Mac Well Dressed!
Bought this after one of my fave bloggers viviannadoesmakeup kept mentioning it. Is is such a sexy scent! It has amazing longevity and I can still smell this as if I just applied it even after a few hours. No touch ups necessary! Will definitely be repurchasing this!
Was recommended this by a friend who swore it was her HG powder! I carry this around for on the go touch ups, and find it a really soft and finely milled product. Doesn't irritate my skin and is very blendable. Gorgeous compact! Will definitely be checking out more from this range! Perfect setting powder!
Palettes -Sonia Kashuk - Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette
Jaclyn86 10/3/2012 12:18:00 AM
Amazing concealer palette! I use this both on blemishes and under the eyes. I tend to blend the shades to get a more accurate colour match. Great to pop in your handbag for on the go touch ups too. Have gone through several of these palettes now, they're such good value!
I like this, but I just don't love it. For Chanel I find the packaging cheap looking, and annoying as you cannot gauge how much product is left. That being said, it gives a nice amount of coverage, blends well into the skin, and is very natural looking. Perfect for summer when you don't want to feel weighed down by products! I just don't think I could justify paying the price given that there are better foundations out there for a lot less (Jemma Kidd Light As Air I'm looking at you!)
Misc Beauty Tools -Australis - Makeup Finishing Spritz

This did absolutely nothing for my skin, I am convinced it was just water! It actually smudged my makeup, and no other setting spray I have ever used has done this! If you're looking for a better buy, go for the skindinavia or urban decay all higher as they actually work! Cheap price matched by a poor quality product.
