I really like this serum and have found that my lashes are thicker with this and slightly longer but not a very noticeable difference. I love how it is wet and you feel that it's on and the applicator is not bad as well.
This is a lovely and fresh perfume, I have a 30 ml that I carry around with me as a pick me up during the day.
Thankfully, I got a sample of this to try out, and oh my god, it has to be the worst foundations out there. The colour looked fine once I put it on, then half an hour on and I looked like a shiny orange oopma loompa. Never again.. You'd expect higher standards from Chanel, but no, not here. What a disappointment.
I really like this blemish "roller". Despite the packaging being a bit unhygienic, it does the job well, and I can actually feel it working.
Really lovely powder, colours are very easy to match. I got honey, but really most of them would be pretty good match since it blends into your skin so well. The only complaint I have is the lasting power, it lasts about 3 hours (and that's pushing it), till it slides off your face, hence the 4/5 rating. I have dry/combination skin so most foundations last well on me, so I found it weird that this is such bad lasting power. It does look very beautiful on though.
This was a serious waste of money. Think I paid something like €16, was on offer in Boots. And the very first time I used it, I hated it, it did nothing for my lashes and just kept them straight, my lashes looked like weird steel wires. I find that a lot of the L'Oreal mascaras do that, turn your lashes in this hard horrible stuff that are unbendable and nasty. Then something happens just like with any other mascaras when you leave them to "break in" a bit and the newness goes away, and I kind of liked it for weekends and that when I just lazy around or to do grocery shopping. And then after a few more uses, it went clumpy and disgusting, makes your lashes unite into clusters so you look like a total weirdo! Nasty mascara, stay away!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Moroccan Rose Body Butter

One word? Amazing!!!! Beautiful scent, and moisturises really well too. I have the Morrocan rose perfume too, but the scent in this body butter is just fab!
This is such a good product and has quickly become one of my essential products that I use (it's really hard to get into that list of mine lol!!). It does exactly what it says on the spray and keeps my style in control from the moment I finish ghd'ing it till I wash it out. I have tried so many sprays for anti-humidity (kms, frizz-eaze, etc etc etc etc!!), and this one does actually what it promises to. When I bought this in Boots, it was on a 3for2 offer. Then when there was teeny bit left I was like, eh I'll just get whatever is there on offer for "anti-humdity". So I bought Frizz Eaze Moisture Barrier Spray, since it was on a 2for€9 in Boots, and the Lee Stafford's is €10.75 or so. Well, anyway I used that Frizz Eaze Spray, and it did nothing of what Lee Stafford is capable of doing.. Where Lee Stafford's is making my ghd curls last just the way I made them (literally) till I wash my hair (with no residue, no hardness, nothing!); Frizz Eaze made my hair straw like, with no volume, and where there were curls in it, they just fell into a hard, flat, frizzy mess. So now I think I learnt my lesson, I caught a 3for2 offer plus €3 coupon off haircare. I stocked up, since you only notice how good it really is when you don't have it in!!
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer

This is was nice as a body moisturiser, smells nice, good for dry skin, but I have noticed no toning/firming properties whatsoever.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Goodbye Cellulite 10 Day Serum

Meh is all I can say for this Nivea product.. Does not do much that I can notice, even though I have stuck to using it. What you pay for is what you get with this particular cellulite product. Don't waste your hopes on the cream either!

Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Mama Mio Shrink to Fit Cellulite Cream
dianasheglova 5/18/2011 9:33:00 AM
I have been through a lot of cellulite creams, from Nivea to Dior.. I have noticed very little difference to none in the drugstore celullite products, and with the likes of Dior of course I was really very impressed, but the effect only lasts while you are using it then it stops, as it is to be expected with any other cream I suppose. With this cream from Mama Mio, I really have seen some great and quick results of using it after my shower, before going to bed. I'm not particularly big (UK size 6 to 8, to 10 depending on the shop I'm trying jeans on from), but yet I still do have visible dimples on my thighs and "deriere". I have a sedimentary/office job, but I walk about 40 minutes every week day (to work and back :)). I'm not particularly eating healthy, salads are not for me, I dont eat all veg, and have anything green, rocket lettuce etc!! Overall, I would highly recommend the product, even though I am not overly happy with the packaging it's in, as it goes pretty quick, and you cant unscrew it to use the last few grams of what's left that the pump can't get to.
I'm on my third bottle of this stuff. I used to use it every now and then, and now I keep it on my bedside table so I remember to put it on before going to bed. I thought that my lashes were a bit fuller and tiny bit longer, but the real difference that I noticed is when I didn't get to use for a week or so, till my order arrived. To me this is very comparable to the L'Oreal lash serum, same consistency, although the L'Oreal one seems to be a bit more watery, which I like.
Bronzers -L'Oreal - Bronzer Body Tinted Gel (One day)
dianasheglova 5/16/2011 12:20:00 PM
As I am allergic to the DHA ingredient in fake tans, I can only use wash off "tans"! This is great, it gives me a nice deep, even colour, which lasts till I shower. I find that it would come off on clothes etc, even after letting it dry. I have not found one wash off tan doesn't..
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer
dianasheglova 4/18/2011 5:30:00 PM
This is a fantastic concealer!! It really is so easy to blend, it does not dry too quick, but once it does it stays on till you take it off!! The best thing is that it does not settle into lines, nor does it create any new ones a la mac stiudio finish concealer! I sometimes use this as an eyeshadow base if I have to carry my make up and I'm limited for space, so then it multi-tasks for me. :)
