I think I must have bought practically every new high end mascara released. Rough estimate is currently about 90 tubes (that's a habit!). I loved the normal Hypnose (especially with the Lancome base coat underneath), was less keen on Hypnose drama. Hypnose Precious cells is slightly wetter than the others but does dry quickly. I have been using for about 3 weeks but am yet to see a visible difference in lashes. Thi gives good dark colour and definition but not masses of volume. Good for a day time look though. There is slight flaking and smudging which I don't get with standard Hypnose but we are talking 12-14 hours of wear. Overall I would choose this for a day time look but disappointed no visible lash improvements...............yet!!
Bought this mascara as, like others, I thought the brush/comb combination looked like it might do a good job. What can I say? When you pull the brush out it is caked unevenly in mascara and needs to be wiped before you even try and get a coat on your lashes. After 2 thin coats, the clumping was bad enough to need a comb through but the very worse thing of all is that after just a couple of hours of not doing much (working at home - no big deal out in wind, rain or anything) I checked in the mirror and looked like one of those horendous joke adverts for mascara!! Talk about panda eyes. Never to be used again and straight in the bin!!
This is my "go to" fragrance. It is warm and sexy and I have never had as many strangers come up to me on the street or in shops or at work and ask me what the fragrance is. Makes you feel a million dollars. The only other scent that people seem to love and ask about is Tom Ford White Patchouli. Love that one too
I was SO excited when this mascara was launched as a devout Hypnose user but couldn't have been more disappointed. 2 lippies because it doesn't flake or budge during the day but the brush is horrible, the formula smells disgusting and I had to comb my lashes for ages to get them separate again. Stick to Hypnose!
This cleanser doesn't take off all my eye makeup (hence the 3 rating)but used after Laura Mercier puriying oil, it leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh. Nice clean scent and good packaging.
LOVE this foundation. Although very fluid it has brilliant coverage (medium but buildable) and lasts a good 16 hour day (work and straight out afterwards). Depending on the season I am either a 2 or 3 and sometimes blend both to warm my complexion slightly (NC20). I apply either with the beauty blender, fingers or a brush and all give a really lovely natural but perfect skin finish. Packaging is glam and expensive looking (expensive in reality also). Definitely prefer this to my other main use foundations (MUF HD or Studiosculpt/Studio Finish).

Having tried all sorts of foundations (inc GA luminous silk, MUF HD, BB moisturising, EL Doublewear, Guerlain Extreme, Studiosculpt.....the list goes on) I was realaly excited when this was launched. I have used it for a couple of months now and whilst I like the coverage, I have to agree with a previous reviewer about the glitter particles. What looks like a luminous finish from a distance, in certain lights it becomes apparent that there are chunks of glitter in this foundation. Not only that but the glitter appears to be various different colours. NOT a good look at all!! Definitely now to be left in the drawer.
