I've always been scared of using self tan products because they always give me an eerie fake colour (I think I see it more than others, but still). I got a full size bottle in my Lust Have it box and I though heck, it's here and not going away... I got the LOTION in a pump bottle not the mousse pictured here. I used an applicator mitt from St Tropez I think. Personally I liked it BETTER than St Tropez. I still see that fake ish colour but it's really not as bad, I can actually say I finally LIKE the results of a self tan. When I woke up and looked at myself in the mirror I was like like ARGH!!!! I looked BROWN! But luckily it washed off in the shower and left behind a lovely colour. I think it's because I used lotion on my skin before applying to dilute the tan a bit and it must of tanned the lotion sitting on my skin if it makes any sense. And it lasted a good 3-4 days, and didn't smell bad. Winner in my book, will re purchase! -- Just a quick edit, it doesn't smell much when you apply it but after it dries it def has "that smell". I'm going to use a more scented body wash when I get home. The results are still way worth it for me.

this stuff has blown any other lip treatment ive ever tried right out of the water. for the first time in 25 years, my lips are soft and hydrated. This is a total HG lip treatment. Lightly brush lips with toothbrush at night, and apply thick coat and go to bed. apply during the day if you feel like it, but I don't even need it. Australia girls, they don't sell it here, but you can bulk buy a few tubes on ebay for pretty cheap, and it's a million times better than blistex or carmex!
game changing, HG top coat. Will never buy anything else ever again! Shiny vinyl nails that dry in a few minutes...love. ONLY downside is the bottle gets thick pretty quickly so I go through one every couple months, but still worth is. Australia girls, buy on ebay, less than half price that way!
this is my HG serum/plumping oil face treatment. its the one thing ive bought over and over again. I smooth 3-4 drops on my face at night, wait ten minutes, and then put on moisturiser. You wake up to glowing soft skin! And apparently it has anti-ageing props so hopefully my using this faithfully will be beneficial in ten years time. sometimes I add just one drop to my moisturiser in the morning. TIP to aussies; mr. vitamins sells the 20ml bottle for $15!
I wish I'd found this sooner! I bought three mini bottles on ebay for about 15 bucks. I leave one at work, one on my nightstand, and one in my nail kit. I've started just painting it liberally all over my nail and cuticle then trying to leave them alone for as long as I can handle (45 mins). Then I just rub it off but it's absorbed the good stuff by then. By doing this 2-3 times a day my nails have gotten so long and strong, and my cuticles are almost all healed. I will buy this forever! careful not to touch your hair or important papers during the "coating sink-in stage" though :) even my boyfriend noticed how nice my hands look!
I AM IN LOVE. So glad I bought this one. Naked 1 just didn't hit the spot for me...and it's funny I couldnt figure out why other than it seemed like the colours we're too "orange" on me or just didn't look right, which I couldn't figure out because they were all such nice colours. Turns out, I have a cool skin tone. The colours in this one ALL suit me, except chopper I guess but I'll still give is a go. PS, my Naked 1 is now in swap, since I hardly ever used it and now I have the naked 2 so I can't justify keeping it. Thanks all!!!
I just got this today and haven't used it yet but I must say this has got to be the weirdest rated product I've ever seen on MUA...one AWESOME, next TERRIBLE, then HG! then another shocking report...will update in two weeks.
OMMGGG this is actually the kind of product I hate finding because then I'm in a constant panic that they're going to discontinue it. I don't know why I bought it, I didn't really need a mousse or a leave in. But I was hoping to find products to put into my hair so that I could then let it air dry and it wouldn't look horrible. I have terribly fried, bleach blond hair which is long and that I refuse to cut. I also flat iron it daily. I put this stuff in my hair and don't blow dry or flat iron, and I get these gorgeous, soft waves I'm actually not afraid of. BUT I've discovered using it even on days where I do the horrible blow dry flat iron routine, my hair is sooo gorgeous, shiny, and soft. ITS INCREDIBLE. I don't even know why or how it gives hair this kind of softness. I'm moving to Australia ironically enough in 8 months, and I don't think they have Aussie products there (probably because they would find it funny. I wish I had a hair gel called Toronto smooth lol). I'm trying to figure out how to ship huge amounts to myself, since its an aerosol I don't think I can bring them with me on the plane. I would love any tips :) and at 3$ a can!!!! I'm in love.

love love love this stuff. Bought it at xmas when I was over in England from Boots, awesome offer came with a whole gift set for free. I LOVE the smell, perfumey but so nice, and just a great lotion, makes me all smooth and powdery silky, sinks in well. I use it sparingly because its a bit tough to find around Canada! Agreed with the bumps on the back of the arms too, use the scrub of your life (same yummy smell) in the shower then this stuff when you get out, 3-4 days and your smooth!

Ok this this is a very preliminary review. Had bought some pure TTO and had this MASSIVE zit on my face, so I kinda went crazy applying it directly like 5 times a day. Im pissed because I've had a scar for almost a month now but I realize from reading other posts that I probably did "burn" my face. I have a new nice annoying zit, and I just used a q tip to dab a bit on before I go to bed right now. Will do this 1-2 time a day max (i promise myself) and update if it appeared to help.
im going to agree about how there's nothing dramatic to these mascaras, and judging on the name of them I really thought I would get some good ones. I'd say I hate about 4 of them....but I'm glad I found out I didn't like them without having bought a big one. And the ones I do like will be good for my purse! My fav still so far is Make up forever's smokey lash. Oh well, they were fun to get and unpackage lol
well its no miracle product, i do love how it sets my concealer and brightens. however, BEWARE OF PICTURES!!! I guess all the reflective particles mixed with a flash....I looked like i had white bags under my eyes. I do have really bad circles so I kind of went crazy with the stuff, but still, be careful lol

got the huge pump of this at winners for 15$ CAD, and I thought...what they heck...I just used it, washed my hair then put lots in for like 8 mins, rinsed it out then thought...hmmm...ill put a bit more in and towel dry....my hair feels WONDERFUL, so soft, and it smells lovely! I guess that means I had a protein problem. I wont use more then once a week to not jinx the effect, but will go buy another bottle before they run out!

yeeeesssss! like it just as much as diorshow....same nice, full, dark black effect but i dont have to freaking SCRAPE it off my face, and its cheaper too. really think I will stick to this one for when i wanna go out and give my stick straight short lashes some ooomph! sephora has it as a deluxe sample right now so get one for your purse!
I finally tried this, don't know why I waited so long really, but I have a feeling I'll be buying this forever! The PERFECT colour. it looks good with my tanned summer skin and with my pale pale winter skin. just makes me look alive and glowing, like your coming from a run or something....goes on nice and natural and no doesn't really last the whole day but I don't mind stashing it in my purse and reapplying, it's worth the look! HG!!
