I don't know why the other reviewers are giving this lipstick so much hate! It is my favourite red lipstick, and believe me, I've tried a few. It doesn't dry out your lips and make them feel like someone's been at them with a cheese grater (MAC's Ruby Woo...cough) and glides on really easily. The staying power is great too - lasted 6 hours and I ate and drank with it on too. Easily the best lipstick I own.
Amazing cream blush, I've tried expensive makes and cheaper makes, but I bought this on a whim, and I haven't looked back! It is EXTREMELY pigmented, perhaps too pigmented, so a tiny little swipe is all that is needed with my fair skin. Staying power is amazing and I can tell that this pot is going to last me ages!
Conditioner -John Frieda - Radiant Red Color Last Conditioner
TeresaTwilight 5/2/2011 4:04:00 PM
I dyed my hair red after dying it black for 2 years. It took about 6 months, and I heard that keeping red hair radiant was extremely difficult. After a lot of research online, I decided to buy this shampoo and the conditioner, and I absolutely hated it. It did nothing to my red hair but made it fade into a muddy red that looked awful. After applying the shampoo and conditioner, it left my hair feeling very dry and extremely frizzy. The next day, my hair was extremely greasy for some peculiar reason. I don't have naturally oily hair, so I was very confused by its state. It did not leave my hair shiny, only drab and lacking nourishment. It also did not maintain my red colour, but turned it a really washed-out colour after two washes. At first I thought that this may be because red hair is extremely hard to keep up, but I have tried other brands since and none has left my hair feeling as dull and lifeless.
Luckily I recieved this free in Glamour magazine. I had high hopes for this eyeliner due to the great reviews I got from a couple of friends. I was intrigued by the thickness of the eyeliner, and thought it would be perfect since I tend to wear a lot of eyeliner. The pencil glides on smoothly and it's soft to apply. However, after an hour or so, it smudged so much around my eyes and I ended up looking like a panda. I was at work whilst this happened, so there was nothing I could do about wiping it off, but my troubles were over at the end of the day because it had all faded! The worst eyeliner I've ever tried by far, save your money and buy Urban Decay's 24/7 instead.
This product is horrible! It's so abrasive!!! Luckily, I only got a sample of this, so I didn't waste my money on it. It's so abrasive, and hurts a lot. I thought it would be good, and really exfoliate but instead it just scratches you and leaves you red and sore! Do.not.use!!!
I really didn't like this nail polish because it's so sheer. One coat on, it just looks like I've put clear nail polish on. 2 coats, it still looks that way, only slightly more milky. I think this nail polish is brilliant if you're at work, and you want something that isn't too noticeable, but personally I prefer bright colors.
I absolutely adore the sent to this. It's sort a toffee-chocolatey (sounds weird but true) The shampoo lathers up really well and made my hair really shiny afterward. It cleaned my hair as much as any other shampoo would, so I don't know why other reviewers are saying that it doesn't clean properly. The smell stays on your hair once paired with the conditioner which is a bonus for me.
This is the worst pigment I have ever worked with. I absolutely HATE it. The color is so gorgeous and it's such a shame. The only upside to this product is the color, and that's why I'm giving it a 2/5 instead of a 1/5. The main thing I hate about this product is the fact that it goes everywhere! On my desk where I do my make up, a little on my clothes, all the way down my face. The fallout is so bad. Another thing is the texture is horrible. I find it hard to smooth on my eyelids because it's so chunky. Overall a pigment I would stay away from if it is repromoted.
This has got to be my favorite shower gel from Lush. The smell is divine, and smells a bit like Rockstar soap, but slightly different. I bought the smallest bottle first because I didn't know if I'd like it or not, and although the bottle is a pain in the butt, the shower gel is fantastic, I love it! It froths up a lot, which is good for me because I hate soaps/shower gels that don't froth. The smell stays on my skin after a shower too which is a bonus. When I found out it is just a Christmas product, I bought the biggest bottle because I love it so much. Was quite expensive, but I know it'll last me ages. I only have found 2 things wrong with it. The first, is that it says it has iridescent sparkles in it, but they are all stuck at the bottom, you can't see them and they don't come out on your skin. The second thing is that Lush should make it available all year round!! Not just at Christmas!!
This was the first shower gel I tried by Lush and I was extremely disappointed! I bought it after it was recommended by so many of my friends, so I went to the shop to get it, smelled it, and decided it was gorgeous. It smells exactly like the Strawberry Feels Forever - very strawberry and very yummy. I got the smallest one just in case I didn't like it...and I'm so glad I did. People are saying that theirs is extremely runny - mine isn't. It's almost congealed and it's all lumpy and weird. I also tried Snow Fairy afterwards (which I promptly fell in love with) and found that this shower gel isn't lumpy or anything like Yummy yummy yummy. I really, really dislike this product and I wouldn't get it again.
Lip Treatments -LUSH - Lip Balm - Let Them Eat Cake (LE)
TeresaTwilight 12/28/2009 6:41:00 AM
This is probably the only Lush lip balm I'm not really keen on. At first, I really liked it, but then the smell gets so sickly. As soon as you open the tin, the smell hits you. At first, it's very sweet and smells delectable. As you apply it on your lips, it feels very soft and creamy and the smell stays with you. After a while, the smell won't go away and it stinks. It made me feel so sick, I rubbed it off my lips and it still wouldn't go away. People in my college class could smell it from the other side of the room. Overall, a nice product to put on your lips, but the smell is too overwhelming
This is the first dazzleglass I've ever tried by MAC, and I absolutely love it. The color is incredible, and when I bought it, it made me feel all Christmassy but obviously it is wearable throughout the year. First time I applied it, I was thinking "this won't come out as pigmented as it is in the tube" but to my surprise, it is. It is so pigmented I have to apply it with great care and precision, because if it went over my lips, it would show and look ridiculous. My only gripe about this product is that it doesn't last that long on my lips, possibly because it's not a sticky lipgloss, and I prefer those. It's really smooth and creamy and I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again.
I received the color "tasty" in a swap, expecting big things. The look of it is very appealing, and that's why I was really intent on trying it. I tried it, and it just came out sheer. The highly pigmented pink colors in the tube do not show whatsoever, and I found I had to apply it three times to cover my lips. It lasts quite a long time, but it just looks like a normal gloss. Overall, it looks good, but the product just doesn't live up to my expectations.
I got a really big sample of this...and I really, really dislike it. I thought the concept of the whole shampoo bar was weird, but intriguing but I couldn't imagine using anything other than liquid shampoo. I used it, and I felt like I had to rub it in my hands for a long time to get some froth for my hair, and it just wasn't worth it. When I dried my hair, it didn't look any different from how it usually looks. The bar is very expensive considering you only get a little bit for it, and even the sample I used was significantly smaller after just one wash. I wouldn't buy this at all, I think I'll stick with my usual liquid shampoo
I'm a bit undecided whether to buy this blush again because of the price. The color is absolutely stunning and it goes so well with my skin tone! I got a bit confused when I got this because on some pics it looks orange but its in no way orange! I'd say it was more on the coral side of pink than the hot pink side. It has a lot of shimmer in it (for me anyway) and it looks gorgeous when put on! Packaging is really nice too :) I've used it A LOT and it barely looks touched which is brill too. My only qualm is the price. It retails for 18.50GBP which is a lot of money for such a little blush and although I love it, I really don't know if I can afford to fork out that much for a new one...
