Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

My mum uses this and she loves it, so thought I'd give it a go, but nooo! This is sooooo fragranced! I have never used anything as fragranced on my face! It's so irritating! Its literally like a foamy soap or even worse. For an every day use, it would sting my eyeballs out as well as my nose! Okay, it might get make up off, and cleanse your skin well... but I just find that its not worth the pain. For the price as well, psssh! Its impossible to do my make up in the morning right away when i use this. I can barely see for the next hour. My eyes are red, wattery, irritated, stingy...just blergh! And for my breakouts... I dont find that it helps at all... I dont see a difference when I use this on my skin whatsoever.. Very poor product..

I actually think this is the best conditioner I've ever used. It leaves my hair soft, silky and easy to brush through. I hardly ever get knots in my hair when using this! Its smells gorgeous too! I would sooo recommend this, amazing for dry hair.
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverSleek Intense Smoothing Shampoo
Suli8 2/7/2013 5:20:00 PM
I have thick wavy hair which is very dry as I chemically treat it and straighten it quite often. I find that this shampoo leaves my hair sooo soft and silky! It smells lovely and its just amazing. I cant say that this doesn't clean my hair properly, it definitely does especially because I shampoo my hair twice. I dont use any sticky, heavy products on my hair either so It's not hard to clean. This shampoo might take a little longer to rinse than any other just because it is so silky and soft, it feels like a conditioner. But I don't mind that, at least I know I'm rinsing my hair properly and its definitely worth it in the end because of how it leaves my hair. It's easy to brush through, and with the conditioner it works even better! I also switch it up with the Everstrong reinforcing shampoo and conditioner every now and then :) I just ran out of this so I'll be going to get more!
I used to use this all the time! I now use a brow kit, but if your someone whos looking for a brow pencil, I would recommend this! It has a very useful brush that's very handy and works well. The actual pencil isnt too hard or too soft. It doesn't smudge, unless of course your rubbing your eyebrows alot! But if you leave it be, it lasts all day! Its a great product :)
I have this in a smaller tube. This is a good cheap body butter! I have very dry skin and it makes it lovely and smooth! I love the scent, it's very gentle. This isnt sticky, it doesnt take that long to dry. It's great for the price! I would buy again, but I just want to try out other body butters out there! :)
Styling Products -TRESemme - Heat Defence Styling Spray

Im on my second bottle of this product and I must say I love it! The smell is just amazing!! If it wasnt for protecting the hair from heat Id still use it just because of the smell! I dont think it lasts that long... not as long as a perfume would anyway, but I just love it for the scent pleasure it gives me haha! I can see my hair is alot smoother when I use this before straightening, not sure about the shine, but it is easier to manage. I think it does protect my hair from the heat, although we could never know... I still get split ends but those are hard to prevent anyway! But I find that my hair isnt as dry. The bottle is fine! The nozzle is too. The product isnt sticky at all, and I just love to use it on my hair! So I will continue to do that :D
EWWW this is awful!! It turns you a disgusting orange/yellow colour and it stinks! At first it smells nice and then the smell develops into a granny biscuit rotten mushroom smell! EW. I have this normal one and recently bought one with +soft shimmer which i saw my auntie use, and she says it works well, but no... no! It looks ridiculously unnatural. It can get rather blotchy on me too... I wont be buying this again, such a shame, i really wanted it to work well. I noticed that maybe with one application every now and then you would probably look fine, but i applied two coats.. 2 days in a row, like it says.. apply daily! And its turned into awful orangey yellow. Thank god ive only done one of my arms, couldnt bare my whole body being like this. EW. Maybe I can use up what I have with just applying it say.. once every 3-4 days.. But wont be buying this again!
Awesome lipstick! I love the colour, it's very controllable... in a way that you can either slightly tint your lips with it and it''ll give you a darker tinge or you can actually go for a very dark vamp lip colour. I understand that this wouldnt be to everyones taste and its not an everyday shade but I find that it can be when you apply very little product by dabbing it on slightly. I also like to do ombre lips with this. Its very creamy, so blendable. Just a very lovely lipstick!
I agree with the review by sweetfart (Lol). The actual product is amazing, It feels soft and moisturising, it smells wonderful, very sweet sugary scent, the packaging is great.. Im just a little disappointed with the colour..This is my first mac purchase... so i cant tell you what mac shade I am but I do have a mediumish skin tone. I find that the colour is way too barbie pink like! I thought it'd be a very nice nude, but its not.. its very light pink and sooo obvious i have a lipstick on thats way too light for me and I feel that it has cool undertones too...and that just really doesnt suit me. So thats a shame, but still to not waste the money I feel like i can work with this by just slightly dabbing it on my lips and having that slight sheen that it gives, but being careful not to build up the colour. I cant wait to try out different shades!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Universal Lip Glow

This is okay... if your not into lipsticks and all that stuff and you're just looking for something that would enhance your natural lip colour. I think this is okay, it works for me. It does make my lips look brighter, the colour of my lips is a lot more intense, it turns them a nice pink/berry colour without feeling like I have a lot of product on my lips. I don't have to worry that this will smudge or anything like that and my lips dont look too glossy or shimmery at all. It doesn't feel moisturising or drying... but I find that its very hard to apply! The actual product is very hard and I literally have to press alot to get some of it on my lips, and by that time ive made my lips very sore and they hurt... its not a nice feeling.. I wouldn't buy this again.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Darling

This is a lovely lip product. First, the packaging is great, in a pencil form that you need not to sharpen. Easily fits in your purse/bag. Smells like peppermint, which I like! It smells fresh. This colour is nice, I find that it's a purple/pink colour. But the less you apply the pinkier it looks and obviously the more you apply the colour gets more intense. So it's very build able. I find that on me, when I go over my lips a couple of times to achieve max colour, it turns almost a fuchsia pink, but it does have purple in it. But I like it. It's not actually a stain at all for me... if it does stain my lips its ever so slightly and its not with a purple tinge, its like a pinky red, but I'm not sure... my lips just get red a lot of the times from rubbing the product on them so much.. but they don't feel sore or anything so perhaps it is a slight stain. But either way I can't agree with the stain part that much, but other than that it's a nice product. I find it's not drying or anything like that, the colour is nice, you can definitely tell that it's a purpley shade, although I find its a lot on the wearable side.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I have been using this for a couple of months now, and it really is a great gel eye liner. The colour is very good, great pigmentation. It doesn't smudge once its dry, dries fast. Lasts most of the day. I just find that when I do a winged line it starts to rub off ever so slightly at the end of the day but you can't really see that unless you look up very close. The packaging is good. The pot is solid and small to take with you, obviously you need a brush, with that being said if your planning to take an eye liner with you I'd recommend the pen ones. But, this is a great product overall, and unless your planning to stay out all day until late, you don't really need to retouch the eye liner. I don't wear make up all day but I do most of the day, and for me this works fine. One thing that's a bit of a pain in the ass is that once you've used this for a few months and you get to the bottom of the pot, the product has dried out a lot, and its very solid and hard to get on the brush ...but I just heat it up in a microwave before I use it so it's easy to work with again. I'm afraid you have to do this every second day if not everyday in the morning when you want to use it. Other than that, its a good product :)
This is a lovely blusher. I have never tried any topshop makeup or any creamy blushers before, so this is a first and I'm pretty impressed. Mine is Head Over Heels and it's lovely. I find the consistency very creamy. Its very smooth, and has high pigmentation. You can really work with it, using a tiny amount for a slight colour to your cheeks or you can really build up the colour. It's very bendable. Might be a little harder to use on dry skin as this does dry quite matt and kind of sits on the flaky-dry areas on the cheeks, but what product wouldn't.. just have to moisturise your skin alot, and it cant hurt since that's never a bad thing. But I only sometimes get dry pimples so other times this works very well :) Packaging is very good. Often my blushers fall apart because I carry them around with me so much everywhere I go, I just like to wear blusher on my cheeks so I always feel the need to take it with me in case the colour wares off. This packaging seems good and feels a lot stronger than other blushers I have used. The size of the product is good, fits well in a bag. Handy mirror inside, the only thing I find is that this doesn't last that long on my cheeks... But to sum it all up, yes I would buy it again.
