Love this brush! It's so soft and the colour of the handle is lovely as it makes a change from usual black handles. I use this as a foundation brush with liquid foundation and gives amazing results!

Bought this based on the hype but its a total waste of money. I spent €50 on a bottle and has made NO difference whatsoever to my skin. I am just using it now to use it up. Better of spending your money on a decent night cream. Overpriced and over-hyped!!!!
Absolutly my HG mascara, above all over the counter brands such as Lancome & Dior!! I have never recieved so many compliments about my eyes as I have when I use this. It totally opens up my eyes. The large brush is brilliant and the formula NEVER clumps, I was amazed! One coat is enough for day wear for real definetion to my eyes and two coats at night for a real dramitic look. I will definetly be buying this again, and again, and again!

Hi. Ive just bought this in the new packaging with a brush attached. Very like the YSL foundation. I wear this just on top of my cheeks and gives a lovely glow as i wear matte foundation and my face can look a bit lifeless. For the price its great stuff and will definetly re-purchase. I use colour Peach, and suits my pale skin tone perfect.
Cannot see what the hype is over this foundation. Its definetly LIGHT coverage, dosent cover any redness and the consistancy is just weird and watery! I tried layering the product but could not get any coverage and an hour or two later looked terrible! Thank god i on;y got a sample of this and didnt fork out for a full bottle.
Bought this in 02 Fair. Its 10 times better than touch eclat and much cheaper! I dont use it as a concealer just an under eye brightner. Some people have complained that its too thick, the secret is to put a small dab on the back of your hand and rub it - it then becomes more liquid and spread easily. Really covers dark circles and you only need a little so it will last ages! Would definetly buy this again.
This stuff is brilliant! Yes it dosent foam a lot which might put some people off but you dont need as much as you think you do either, so some people are using far too much product. I have never came across a cleaner that cleans so well! After i splash it off with water and use some toner on a cotton pad it is spotless clean! Unbelievable! Well worth the money. I have a 400ml Decleor Cleansing Milk to get through before i can buy a full size of this (i was using a free sample) but i will definetly purchase.
Got this is the light brown shade as a gift. great for keeping in my everyday makeup bag. Keeps brows lovely and shaped and not too dark for my light brows. Dont know if id purchase myself as its a bit pricey but am happy enough with it :)
Please only use this once a week MAX!!! I would nearly recommend not to use it at all! Asprin can be absorbed into the bloodstream from being topically applied to the skin. Same applies to homemade salt and sugar scrubs. Very dangerous for anyone with hypertension or diabetes, also bad for your liver!! Please please find another cheap drugstore scrub to use!!

This is a great foundation. Over here we have it in a pump glass bottle which is very handy and hygenic! Im using thiis about 2 weeks now and i love it. Its very easy to apply, it has a lovely texture and dries to a light powder finish. I do find i have to touch up around lunch time but i dont mind that as my skin gets quite oily no matter what i use. I would definetly buy this again. Its great for everyday wear for a natural look, but still has great coverage.
Absolutly love this. Using it 3 weeks now and can see a difference. The skin under my eyes is so soft now and concealer glides on smoothly!! Will definetly buy this again. HG!

I generally use this for work and my EL Double Wear for weekends. This is a great foundation, texture is lovely and smooth and you can apply it so quickly! I mix this on my hand with some Smashbox Primer and it lasts all day, no dryness, no oilyness just flawless. I sampled Chanel creme foundation the other week with a silimar texture to this and was no comparasion. Came off my face after an hour I hope the never stop making this!

Had to go out and buy this with all the great reviews here! I bought this in Nude....matches my skintone perfectly! I have combination skin, dry cheeks and oily t-zone but i find this foundation perfect! Coverage is medium and can be layered for fuller coverage. I see some people have said its in a pump, mine is in a tube, still hygenic and easy to carry around. Will always re-purchase this. I paid €7.99. Great value, better than any Mac or Lancome ive ever tried!!!!!!
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - Everyday Daily Moisturiser

I have to say i am very impressed by this. In the past i have used Johnsons moisturiser and Dove, both had a horrible smell and a very orange look. This was totally different. I applied it after my shower, its nice and creamy if a little too creamy, sometime more can some out of the bottle than intended! Its smells really nice, not like fake tan smell at all. Its smoothed on nicely to my skin, took a few mins to sink in but felt lovely and soft. The next morning i had a beautiful glow and no streaks. I am going to apply another layer tonight to intesnsify the colour. I bought this in med to dark. Im not sure how long this will last though and is quite expensive for what it is. I paid €19 for 200ml, but i probably re-purchase again. Would be great for holidays to put over a real tan!!
Was so looking forward to trying this as ive always heard Laura Mercier stuff was really good. I bought the oil free formula as i tend to have a greasy t zone by midday. I was hoping this would stop this and leave me with lovely clear looking skin...how wrong could i have been? I only had it on an hour when i looked in the mirror and to my horror it looked like i had NO make up on at all. Bright red rosy cheeks and my face was an oil slick! Very very disappointed with this. Would not purchase again and the price is waaay too expensive!!
