This smelled great in the shop but is sickly sweet when you apply it all over. This left my skin greasy, it did not absorb and the moisture did not last long at all. I find that with most of the LE body butters they are not as good as the ones in the permanent line.

I really like this hand moisturiser as it really works and makes your hands very soft. I keep a tube on my vanity as I like to apply moisturiser several times daily as I have extremely dry hands with peeling skin. This makes my hands soft and look somewhat normal! LOL the only thing I don't really like is the smell but its bearable and also its very cheap to buy!

I really enjoy the scent of the body butter and it lasts unlike some of the others. This is very moisturising and absorbs well without leaving you feeling greasy. I don't mind the open tub because you can use up every inch of the product.

I really didn't not like this body butter, its greasy, does not absorb well and does not moisturise. The only thing I liked was the scent but even that can become unbearable after some time as this just sits on my skin.

This is one of my favourite body butters as it absorbs better than some and smells heavenly. The moisture lasts for a fair amount of time and does not leave you feeling greasy.
This is a fantastic highlighter, long lasting, easy to blend and gives you a fantastic glow. I used to really enjoy benefit products but not so much anymore this one still remains a fav however.
I like using this as an eyeshadow base as it turns boring neutral colours into something more interesting. I have not hand any problems with this creasing when using as an eye shadow base and it lasts all day. I have also used this on my lips with a clear gloss on top it works quite well and it lasts for a while as the base does stain your lips. I would love to try out a few other colours.
I really like this blush, I got it in the Las Chickas Pallette which only cost me £10 and I am really impressed with this blush. It is a coral/peach with golden shimmer similar to MAC springsheen but this one is more pink. It gives a lovely glow to the skin and is very soft and easy to blend. I will buy the full size when this runs out.
This was my first blush from MAC and I have really enjoyed using it. It is one of my everyday blushes and has now got a serious dent in it. It is a dusky pink colour and is matte with no shimmer. It is perfect for people who do have blemishes especially on the cheeks like I do as it does not emphasise them beneath your foundation as some shimmery blushes can. Another great thing about this blush as it can be layered for a softer or more striking effect, will definitely buy another when I run out.
I really enjoy this blush as I prefer coral based blushes over pink ones and this one has the right amount of shimmer without leaving you looking like a disco ball. It is a lovely peachy coral with golden shimmer, it is the perfect summertime blush. Topped off with a golden highlighter you get a lovely glowy finish!
I love this mascara! It gives volume,length and separation, what more could you ask for! It is long lasting and doesn't flake on me and the want is not to fat or long so can get most of your lashes. It's only £10.99 which is great as I usually spend double that on HE mascaras and this works just aswell if not better. It is great as an every day and as an evening mascara as you can really build it up and layer it without your lashes getting clumpy. I cannot wait to repurchase this!
I've wanted to try a hypnose mascara for ages and was coaxed into buying one when purchasing a few other bits from Lancome. I find this mascara to be ok, the formulation is quite thin and wet and it doesn't give me much length or much volume. It does not clump that much on me but it does not give me full dramatic lashes that it claims to do. I do however love the wand as the curved part gets all my lashes in one sweep and the bumpy part is great for zig zagging through your lashes to get some volume its just such a shame that the formulation lets this product down.
This is my favourite OPI polish ever! I get tons of compliments when I wear this shade especially when my nails are long. It gives me the perfect nude manicured hand and is great for, work, school etc. I even wore this for my graduation ball as it is perfect for almost any occasion. It is a fleshy pink colour with a creamy texture. It goes on well and it lasts for at least 4 days without chipping. Highly recommend this!
I followed the hype and grabbed a bottle of this only to realise when it was applied on my nails it looked exactly like starbucks green! that didn't however put me off, I'm not usually keen on the colour green in general but this was an exception it is creamy like the other polishes in this collection and it is fairly long lasting. This has inspired me to experiment with other green polishes.
I have never hesitated to try wacky colours and blue nail varnish is no exception. This is a creamy blue with hints of grey. I was not sure if I would like this colour but it surprised me and I enjoyed wearing it and it seemed to last for a while without chipping. It is a wildcard polish and it may not suit everyone maybe worth getting the mini bottle if your not sure.
