Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Color - Crystal Pink

Ok- So I have only had this three days- but I adore it, hopefully I will not be changing the rating due to drying lips. This colour looks great on me. It gives me a MLBB look. I would not really say it is a pink- as but I guess it has a teeny hint of pink somewhere in there. It is just like the perfect nude for me. It does not need contstant reapplying. I love it. I am mainly a MAC girl, however I hate MAC lippies- I find them so drying and am bored of their colours. I am very impressed with the formula of this lippy and the colour is to die for. I am NW25 and have blonde hair.
OK- So I bought this as I think it is IDENTICAL to Everhip- and I love love love Everhip- and bought this one for when my EH runs out. It is so similar. I can see the shy girl link- but I think shy girl is darker. I LOVE the colour- but MAC lipsticks are so annoyingly drying!!!! I should lower the lippies for formula but I have based it on how it looks- it is not until I feel my lips throughout the day I think "Man these are dry". Yet again- I have bought a lippy that resembles lots of my other ones- will I ever learn?? It definitely looks like a summer colour- and really brightens my face up. I love the colour!
I was gutted when I could not get my hands on this, and nearly died when I got it in a swap. It was everything that I hoped it would be. It is a more pink- coral- but really makes my face look so fresh. I love the colour on me. As many MAC lipsticks that I have- I do find them very drying- and cremesheen is my favourite formula- so it was even more of a bonus in that respect. The colour is just so, so, pretty, and I know this will look stunning when I actually have a tan- come on summer!! Again- with MAC, the colours that do work for you always seem to be LE which I hate!!! This would definitely be my HG if only I could get my hands on it more often!!!

I can't understand the poor revs on this. I am dying to get my hands on some again!!! There used to be even more bits in which I preferred, but there is not so much any more. It gets rid of my gross flaky bits and leaves a lovely soothing style balm on which absorbs beautifully and gives me the loveliest lips. MWAH!!!! I want it right now please!! Right now.
I am on my second brush! Well- not that the first one wore out- but because I wanted another one to blend in concealer!!! It is a FAB brush for blending my eyeshadows. Absolutely wonderful. The MA then told me she uses one to blend concealer- hence why I have another one!!!! If it does the job that it does on my eyeshadows I am going to be a very lucky girl! It blends like a dream! What I do hate about MAC brushes is the numbers wear off!!! I have no idea why this bugs me so much- it just does!
OK- so not usually a lush fan- and buying every flipping product you can think of- I decided that maybe my skin needed these natural products. I have oily skin- and prone to break outs. Now- I really don't know if it was using these products- or I just had a bout of beautiful skin or what- I don't know. I purchased angels on bare skin as a morning cleanser, this toner water, along with greased lightening. Well, I had not had a spot, honestly for like 2 months. It was so bizarre. Then what did I do? Leaked all my bottle over a bag I had taken away for the night- HOPELESS. I was not able to buy any more until the week- and what happened after three days??? I GOT TWO BIG UGLY SPOTS!!! I could not wait to repurchase. I put this in the fridge to make it nice and cold- and I am sur ethe tea tree in this is what has helped my skin. I was also trying to budget with my skin care- and for the bottle you get- I think it is great value for money- when you dont spill it. I will be buying this agai.
I love this product. It gives my eyebrows a lovely groomed finish- really strange as I thought it would be similar to a pencil- but it isn't. It matches my eyebrows perfectly. Someone mentioned below that this lasts forever, but I don't think it does. I used to use Browzings which I too adored- and I swear i had this 1 1/2 years and there is LOADS left still. Mac- my last one lasted just over a month. I do fill them in every day- but to me- that still was not vert long- and I mean, I don't colour them in super hard either! I will buy it again and again as I love the groomed look.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

As a newbie to Studio Fix- and unsure really how to apply this- I followed the route of the MA who put it on me using this brush. It is ideal for me as it goes on so lightly and allows me to build up slowly but wonderfully. It is perfect for me- I do not usually wear foundation- but when I do- this is the brush I will always use. I use it for my MSF too- I think it is really versatile and a great investment.
I love these lip scrubs. I was always after one that would work= and this is great. Ok- people do say it is just castor oil and sugar and flavouring- yeah they are right- you could make your own- but I can't be assed and would happily repurchase again and again! It is not that expensive for what you get!
This was the 1st Lush face mask that I purchased. My skin is oily, and can suffer from the odd spot. I wanted something that would brighten my skin and leave me feeling fresher. For me, I found this too harsh on my skin- and trust me, my skin can tolerate a lot! I used it for the month, and once this was used up- went back for a different one- Sacred truth, This is wonderful. I think it may be to do with the almonds being too harsh for me- I don't know. It did give me a tiny bit of a fresher look- but that may be because the almonds practically ripped my skin off!! oops!!! I will not repurchase this.
After missing out on everhip, then settling for Dressmaker- which I too love- I came across this and fell in love. It is beautiful. I love the cremesheen forrmulas the most out of the lippies, and this goes on a brighter and fresher than dressmaker. I wear this with a nude looking face and Garb blush, with by candlelight as a highlighter. LOVE IT. Shame is is Limited Edition. I wish they would not do this to me!!!! BOO TO YOU MAC!
I said yes, I would buy this again- but think this would last forever. I am so glad I bought this! It is BEAUTIFUL. It is buildable and gives you that gorgeous glow without looking like a human discoball. I wear this BEFORE applying my blusher and just use it in a C like motion from the end of my eyebrow vbringing to the top of my cheekbone. It looks gorgoeus. I used Highbeam before but just found this too harsh- and as my skin is oily- this powder works WAY better. I would not use this all over my face- no way- i just use this where I want to highlight and abolutely LOVE it. GORGEOUS. Go on- add to cart!
I am SUPER impressed with this conditioner. As a fan of Kerastase- and rarely branching away from this- I felt their NutriDefense conditioner was not really doing that much for my hair. I felt I had reached the "stuck" point. I bought this conditioner purely because you bought three items and got the third free. After my first condition I was blown away. My hair is highlighted, I blow dry it every time I wash it, and straighten it all the time too. So you can imagine how dry it gets. I could not believe how soft, and bouncy my hair felt. Like one of the reviewers stated, you think you have NOT washed it out, but you really have- that is just how soft it feels. I did use this with the Hydrator I purchased too- so thought maybe THAT was why it was so good- but no- using this in my normal routine was just as effective. I wasn't going to review so soon- as I have only used this for about three weeks and was holding out- but REALLY love it. I only didn't give it a 5 as I am still wondering if this is too good to be true! I will be back for an update once I have finished the bottle. But I am loving this more than my Nutri Defense. SORRY Kerastase!!!!
I am just a sucker. Vaseline would do a better job.
I was initially wanting to purchase Ever Hip- but this was sold out. I thought this was quite a good dupe for it. It is a lovely peachy coral colour, and really works well with my colouring. I wanted to kind of achieve the sunkissed look, and this lipstick was perfect. I love it. Again, as with most MAC lippies the formulas are not too great – and I always find them drying (yet why do I always flipping buy them!). But with a good buff/moisturise before hand and I am set. I would consider buying this again if I could not get my hands on Ever Hip
