I have just applied this oil after showering, and applied it to dampish skin. I am COMPLETELY in love - the smell is wonderful - fresh and lemony, but not synthetic. The oil is thick and silky feeling - it feels far more expensive than it is

I have been working abroad which has led to me visiting a different colorist than my usual - big mistake. After paying a large amount of money for over processed hair I ran screaming to sephora to find something to salvage the mess. Before using this I was scared to brush, let alone style my hair. This has transformed it into as soft as is possible just now and has restored shine. I can't wait to use it when I'm back with my regular guy - my hair will be awesome
This is a really great colour for me - I love nude shades, and a lot can turn out too apricot/peach/brown or muddy on my skin tone - I'm NW20 with pink undertones, and the colour looks great - clean, classy and fresh. The application is pretty bad - very streaky first coat, and not 100% even after the second. It is a colour I just use at the salon as I don't have the patience on my own.
This polish is so pretty- its a pretty pale pink with an interesting blue shimmer through it. In the bottle the colour looks milkly, but when applied it is very sheer. The formula is pretty runny - I haven't attempted using it myself, instead taking it to the salon. The formula also is quite streaky - it took three coats to get an even colour. It is not totally opaque and you can still just see my nailwhite. I really love it though - its a little something different, and the shimmer just adds some interest. Love it
Words cannot describe how long I searched for a true neon pink which was both pretty and as classy as a neon could be - I found it in Punchy Pink. I originally purchased in J.Crew who had a matching flip flop (super cute) Anyway, the polish has been discontinued, which leaves me begging to buy bottles at nail salons. Pros: AWESOME COLOUR Cons: It is streaky until the 2nd coat It dries matte It chips extremely easily Despite the fact the cons outweigh the pros, it is one of my summer faves
URghhhh I sit beside a girl that wears this and it is gross! Super synthetic and cheap smelling.
I bought this polish unseen, as I loved the colour of ‘Don’t Pretzel my Buttons’ so much! In the bottle, both colours look very similar, but they are quite different on the nail. MFK is a super chic mauvey-pink. I have heard the colour described as a ‘dirty bridesmaid’ colour which is pretty descriptive. The colour is definitely a winter-pink and the colour is quite cool, with a grey undertone. It doesn’t create a ‘mannequin-hands’ effect, but it is a very flattering, pretty neutral which provides just the right amount of pop. I assume that the ‘wear’ of the polish will be good like most OPI colours – I had my mani last night and I have been typing all day with no sign of chipping. Love it!
I got this as a freebie at work, but I have googled prices etc and seems like OPI and Essie give you more polish for a smaller price. The colour is great - its almost black, and unusually it has no shimmer in it. I quite like the flatness just for a change. The formula was good - completely opaque with no streaks in 2 coats. It dried super fast.
I got this as I am going through a whole mannequin hands neutral mani phase - this is a nice subtle change from the pinks and beiges which I normally go for. The colour is pretty - a griege with the subtle-ist hint of lilac when the light hits it. I was worried that it might look corpse-y or dirty but it doesn't. Its so chic paired with grey and white clothes. I slapped it on myself and the formula was lovely, and the colour was even after 2 coats - I used three purely because I messed up a nail :) So far, no chips, but there has been a little bubbling. I haven't used a topcoat and it is lovely and shiny. I wouldn't repurchase purely because I have so many colours already
YAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAAYAYAYYAAY Words cannot express how much I love this colour - it is the perfect nude - not dirty looking, too peach or too blah. It was a perfect, chic neutral which made me run out and buy it! Long lasting too = it survived 2 long haul flights in two days :)

I am a twenty three year old with dry, sensitive skin and this works wonders! I have been using this for around two years along with the face wash and mask and my skin texture is great and it really evens everything out. It is horrifically expensive but worth it to feel good Bout myself
I just bought the lotus blossom gloss. The Colour is beautiful, semi opaque and the gloss is thicky, creamy not sticky and smells great!
Lotions/ Creams -Bliss Labs - Vanilla + bergamot body butter

I am not generally I vanilla scent person, preferring fresher florals I.e. gardenia. This butter however is great. The scent is real vanilla rather than a synthetic candy smell. The butter could do with being a little thicker but it absorbs easily and leaves a lingering scent which smell sexy and natural

I love this, my skin is sensitive, can gt both dry and oily and this is great! It evens out my skin tone and provides a nice amount of moisture. The colour stays even throughout the day and provides a great base for bush and bronzer.
