Action Red by Dior is a stunningly beautiful warm red, with a subtle golden iridescence. Soft, light and moisturising in texture, it never looks harsh, dark or overdone. A perfect red for brunettes who suit warm tones and ideal for redheads. Love how it seems to light up my face. A warm toned red that isn't too brown or too orange. Expensive, yes. I only wish they would make make the dated packaging a little more special. And for such a beautiful colour I wish it lasted slightly longer on my lips.

Such a beautiful colour! I am stunned. So natural, creamy and flattering.
My dream foundation! I purchased this in C2 so that the yellow tone would cover any redness in my complexion. It applies like a dream, very light and natural. The colour is beautiful and leaves a sheer matte finish. It also conditions my sensitive skin. What more could a girl ask for in a foundation? I love you MAC!

Love this colour. A perfect warm brown sheer shade for warm complexions. Glossy, smooth and moisturizing. Very natural looking and unlike most brown shades this does not wash me out.
Love, love, love this! Revotion Face has a texture unlike all others. It is like silk and glides onto my skin leaving a soft matte invisible light finish. My perfect tinted moisturizer! I used nanci which is a light ivory nude shade without any orange or pink tones.
Conditioner -Pantene - Brunette Expressions Conditioner

A nice everyday conditioner which left my brunette locks very shiny and full of body. Great value. However, it left the ends of my hair very brittle and feeling like straw. Did not repair or nourish. Perhaps an option for those brunettes with perfect hair.
I have decided that I really dislike this product. It is *very* heavy and matte and looks powdery and chalky. Within an hour or so my skin appears like an oil slick.

The scent of this is gorgeous and almost worth the price itself. I use this after a regular conditioner to protect my hair from heat styling. One bottle lasts forever. Adds shine, softness and volume to my fine hair without making it greasy. I also love the name.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Light Reflecting Conditioner

A nice everyday conditioner which leaves my brunette locks glossy and full. Lovely coffee scent. Good quality for the price. However it had no effect on the tone of my hair and I would need to use a deeper conditioning treatment to keep my hair in perfect conditon.
A cream foundation which is very thick, heavy and difficult to blend. I purchasd this in Sand which was very yellow in colour and looked very unnatural and obvious.
Ultimate shine was difficult to rinse out and left some build-up. My hair became flat and lifeless overtime. I love Lush shampoo bars in general but this gave me no more shine than usual and contained pointless glitter bits.
Wild Berries is meant to be dusky rose in colour and yet it is more a dark bright pink. Difficult to blend as the texture is thick and could be more creamy. It looked obvious and fake. The tube, although beautiful, is heavy to carry around.

I am insure if it was my application technique but De Groovie did not work for me. Difficult to apply and expensive. It made no difference to my lipstick bleeding, my Clinique lip pencils and Benefit Lip Plump work far better to prevent this.

A light mousse-like cream which feels beautiful to apply. It did make the skin on my lid feel like silk and yet the peach colour looked obvious and unflattering. When I applied a powder eye shadow there were obvious creases.
A nice light ballet pink powder with a subtle shimmer. Would flatter those who suit a cool pink powder blush. Pretty box and concept. Easy to blend as the powder is fine and an excellent quality.
