I bought this when I'd just discovered Nars. I bought the famous Orgasm and was hooked, resulting in me purchasing lots of Nars lip glosses, lipsticks and foundation, all of which I LOVED. Naturally, I thought their mascara would be of the same quality and bought this, but it wasn't as special as I'd expected. Its a lovely shade of black and makes my lashes look dark, however there isn't as much volume or lengthening as I'd hoped for. I'd recommend this if you're looking for a natural look. I use this on days I don't feel like wearing any makeup apart from mascara and some powder. There is a tiny amount of product. I was expecting it to be bigger but its the same bottle as a Nars lip gloss.This wouldn't bother me if it hadn't been so expensive. I would buy again, just because I like it for a daytime look..
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - St. Moriz Self Tanner Foam

This is my favourite fake tan. I actually doubt I'll buy most other brands again as they're just a waste of ridiculous amounts of money in my opinion. Think of all the saved money that could be being spent on makeup or clothes! St Moriz comes in 3 varieties in my local store - regular spray, regular mousse or dark mousse. I've heard there's a dark spray but I've never seen it. I use the 'dark' mousse, and it is an awesome colour on me. Glowing bronze/brown as if I've been on holiday. (I am around an NC25-30 for reference). I was worried as the product was so cheap I might end up with a 'tangoed' orange effect - but none at all! Apparently green is added to counteract the orange - similar to the green bases of more expensive fake tans. It only costs £2.99. Absolute bargain, seeing as my last bottle of Fake Bake was over £30! On top of that, you get 200ml - Fake Bake only give 150ml. When its that cheap - you can afford to top up when/if you need/want to. I still had a noticeable tan after 5 days, however it faded a little after I used a body scrub - obviously this is likely to happen after exfoliating but I was surprised at how much of a tan remained - in a good way of course! Just reapplied and its back to its glow from day 1. Another bonus is that there isn't a 4 - 6 hour development time. St Moriz is pretty much instant (full colour after 3 - 5 mins). The packaging is very St Tropez-eque, as it is basically being marketed as a dupe. I like the pump on the mousse bottle, it isn't flimsy and allows you to dispense the exact amount you want. I can't comment on the spray as I haven't tried it, but I'll most likely get it to try out. If you want to try this tanner, just get it. You probably won't regret it, and even if you do - it was only £2.99! Will definitely continue to buy.
Absolutely love this - and right now I'm getting far more use out of it than my Mac Studio Fix Fluid. Yes it shimmers a little - but providing you don't use too much, you end up with a soft glow, and it really is perfect for photos. Fairly high coverage which I like - I usually don't use concealer with it. Good pump dispenser built in - no need to buy one. Perfect colour for me personally too. I'm somewhere between an NC25 and NC30 and use 004 - Nude. Lovelovelove, and looking into other Revlon foundations to try as well.
Absolutely gorgeous! This is my 2nd OPI polish and just as good as the first. Perfect formula, perfect brus, perfect amount, perfect colour. Its a beautiful bright blue toned pink/magenta. Lovely and thick, one coat would probably suffice but I wear two for the extra shine and colour. I don't mind paying a little bit more for a product like this as its better than any other polish I've used.
This was my first OPI nail polish and I will never buy any other brand of polish ever again as its perfect! The colour is a gorgeous dark purple-y black. It sounds gothic, but the high shine gives it an elegant, classic appearance. It lasts days without chipping - longer than drugstore brands. The brush is a lovely size to cover the whole nail easily and the handle is wide and easy to control. It does cost a little more, but there are more expensive brands than OPI that aren't half as good. Worth it in my opinion. Would definitely repurchase - I've just ordered more OPI polishes and I'm sure they'll be of the same quality.
I don't understand all the negative reviews on this dye... is it possible the US formula is different from the UK one? Anyway, this cost me about £9.50/$15.56. It costs more than a lot of drugstore dyes, but I find a lot of the cheaper ones to be overly chemical and nothing great. This dye is amazing. I used 535 - Golden Mahogany Brown on BRIGHT bleach blonde hair assuming it probably wouldn't work (the box recommended putting it on dark blonde at the lightest), but it did! Its the exact colour on the box. The conditioner that comes with it is perfect - smells gorgeous and leaves hair super soft. I'm only using Herbashine in future! Also, the people complaining that it didn't lighten their hair - obviously! Hair dye doesn't contain bleach/lightener. In most cases, the hair needs to be lightened, even just a little, before a lighter dye will work properly.
