Moisturizers -Garnier - Garnier Moisture Match- Wake Me Up
Tinabear 4/9/2013 12:40:00 PM
I got this as a sample, and I loved the way it made my skin look glowy and peachy so decided to buy the full product. The formula is gel based and smells citrusy which reminds me of summer. The only thing that I don't like is it's quite a small tube for it's price.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Einstein Lip Theory Cooling Relief

I like this lip balm as you can feel the menthol working it's magic. Together with the Einstein Lip Theory Hydrating Formula - it made my lips feel smoother and less dry. It doesn't taste of anything particulaty good or bad. Reminds me of a cheaper version of caramex. I just wish it wasn't so solid and hard to get out of the pot. Love the red packaging and little first aid cross :)
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I love this scent. I got this body lotion as it was reduced from £8 to £4. So delicious, I love the smell of peaches, especially ones that smell like real fruit. On top of that, my hands smelt of peach all day - lasts a while. :) makes me want to eat peaches and cream.
Moisturizers -Avon - Solutions Winter Enjoy the Day Cream

I've had horrible skin due to the bad weather so I had to have this. I just hope it doesn't break me out as it is quite rich. The smell is lovely and planty. I'm applying this with witch hazel at night to keep away pimples. Here's hoping to staying smooth :) *Update* No pimples, nice soft moisturised skin and I've cut the witch hazel out. Well done again avon - inventing creams good enough to use on combo skin.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Balm Pomegranate

I have this balm in Rambling rose, it smells beautiful because it's strong & it is packaged prettily. It's not very moisturising for me. Not a bad product but not a very good one either. I find the tin can become difficult to open at times. I think I would buy it again if it were on offer/sale. But deffo not at full price not worth it.
Lipstick -Soap and Glory - Soap and Glory Marvelips! Pencil
Tinabear 1/12/2013 6:22:00 PM
I cannot live without my marvelips pencil. The main colour is like a vintage rose, the highlighter end really adds volume to your pout when used on the cupid's bow. Lovely fuller looking lips. I will be buying more crayon like lippys from now on. The only thing that annoys me is the lack of staying power. After about two drinks I'll probs need to reapply. This colour seems intense so lighter shades are a must :) invent them please S&G :)
I have this in the creamy skin range. The smell is divine - like a more expensive brand (no.5) :) plus the cream scent lasts a long time. It comes in a black glass bottle so the light doesn't taint it. My only gripe is - I just wish this came in a bigger size ha.
Cleansers -Doll Face Beauty Cocktails - Hoopla Enzyme Cleansing Wash
Tinabear 1/7/2013 4:21:00 PM
This smells lush. Love the feel of my face afterwards - so soft, clean, looks glowy and feels/looks tight. A cocktail of youth in a bottle.
Waste of money. Sticky skin and hardly any results. In the bin
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter
Tinabear 1/3/2013 2:49:00 PM
I love the flavour of this balm - very fruity. The texture is also lovely and it goes on very smoothly nourishes my lips well. The only downside to this balm is the fact that my lips feel dry after a couple of hours but I guess that's most lip balms for you. I've yet to find one that hydrates my lips all day. A lovely little lip balm but for the price I would not repurchase.
After purchasing the 17 va va voom mascara and regretting it so badly, I was reluctant to try out the peepshow mascara. The packaging is very pretty - this is what first drawn me to it. It is a pink vintage looking wand. I got this shade in black The wand is a lot smaller than the va va voom and somehow better pigmentated. This goes on like a dream and my eye lashes actually look pretty and voluminous. I feel like a doll when I am wearing this, I am so glad I took a chance on it. EDIT** Slight clumping now I've had it for over a week. And it becomes dry making it harder to build. Hmmm not impressed...
This is a lovely lippy. The packaging is sweet - black and classy looking and I prefer these square tubes to the round collection. It also has a nice light fruity taste to it once applied. It moisturises your lips once applied - in one swipe! The colour - a nude is so vibrant looking and yet when you apply it's a nude. It leans to more of an orangey nude where as Miners nude is more of a yellow nude. I deffo prefer the shade of the nyx. It goes well with my newly dyed black hair :) In general I think this is a shade that will suit everyone. at £2 a pop (on sale) you can't go wrong. Nab em when they are on offer girlies.
Utter rubbish. Don't buy this unless you want clumpy eyelashes with no volume added to them what so ever.
Best GHDs ever. Gold MAX Styler (the bigger plates size) is perfect for anybody with thick hair.
This nail polish annoyed me. The packaging and colour attracted me - I have this in the pretty peach. First time I applied it, it was thick and gloopy and made my nails look a horrendous mess. So I removed it and tried again, the same mess and just horrible. Third time - Unlucky again. So disappointed, this will be going straight in the bin. Completely unwearable.
