This was an awful product. As soon as the product was absorbed into your skin, your hands feel tight and rubbery. Very unpleasant.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Intense i-Color Eye Shadow smoky-i for browns

This was fantastic, loved the colours, they complemented my eyes very well. The formula of the eye shadow was lovely and velvety with good pigment.
I really struggled with this mascara. I believe the brush was the problem as the formula worked just fine when I used the wand from my old mascara.

Had to keep applying this product to make any kind of difference to my lashes. Other mascaras I have used require only one or two coats.

Lovely stuff, not to greasy, absorbed into nails instantly. Nice fragrance too.

Beautiful colour, but I'm not into metallics. Still enjoyed wearing it though. Product did not last very long even with a topcoat. Although I am running around after a toddler. Still the colour chipped within 12 hours of application.
Top/Base Coats -Nailtek - Foundation II - Ridge-filling

Does the job, but I believe there are much better base coats out there that have nail hardeners etc in them. Would repurchase but at a much cheaper price.
Love this stuff, give such a lovely glow, but make sure to use it with correct foundation and be very light handed. Also make sure you have exfoliated and moisturised well. Love the smell of this powder, so classic, I imagine the great movie stars using this!
Moisturizers -Nivea - Nivea Visage Q10 Plus Anti-wrinkle Light Day Cream with SPF15

I think this product is better for summer (I have combination skin). I am using it in the Autumn and find that I have to go back to moisturise my skin again. I also find that it forms almost a film, so that when applying foundation you get lots of little bits coming off (looks like you have major dry skin). Nice for summer and if you aren't wearing make up, but dont think I would by it again.
Moisturizers -Nivea - Nivea Visage Q10 Plus Anti-wrinkle Night Cream

Considering I am on a very tight budget at the moment. I find I am continuously going back to this product. I usually buy it with the corresponding day cream and the eye cream on 3 for 2 specials at Boots (UK). It smells lovely and feels rich, but not too greasy. I'm sure there are other night creams out there such as Clarins that would far outstrip this product, but this is definately one of the best "cheaper" skincare lines available right now.
Gorgeous colour, lovely creamy texture, even has a nice fragrance! Colour not too pink or too chalky, just the right amount of pigment.
Soft, silky, shiny hair. Feels well moisturised and smooth. Nice fragrance, not too strong and fruity.
Leaves my hair soft and shiny, does not strip the hair or dry it out. Nice fragrance, not too strong or fruity. Does not leave any residue on the hair.

Fantastic product, intensely moisturising. Use it for when the corners of my lips start cracking (when I am run down). Provides instant relief. Fantastic product.

Made my hair quite shiny (I am brunette). A bit overpriced, but love the fact that they are 'cruelty free'.
