Eyeliner -Collection 2000 - Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner

I was really impressed by this product, I have a lancome liquid felt tip pen and this is much better, i borrowed it from a friend and was pleasantly surprised, glided on with ease, had nice staying power and most importantly was easy to apply, gave a nice line and is a great price. Next time i need a liquid eyeliner, i am after this one
YES! I was dipping into my friend's makeup bag and found this gem, she commented, 'that's really one of the best mascara's out there,' and her sister who is a makeup artist had recommended it, so feeling very confident i went and brought my own. Nice, long, non-clumpy voluminous lashes, i repurchased this but in a purple tube, not sure what the difference is, still love it! I don't know why people buy high end mascaras when moderate priced ones like this do the job
Why did this not work for me? I love their macaras and i love the shine and vibrant colour, but like a previous reviewer I got Disco Pink, and I've done this twice, and the second time even with a top coat, it still chipped within a day!! so annoying, I'm not one to pay 6quid for nailpolish and really wanted this to work! (other reviewers don't seem to have the same problem but maybe it's just this one colour)
I dislike the idea of buying the same cosmetic over and over again when there are so many different ones to try, trying and buying new makeup is half the fun...however since buying this on a whim on deciding that I really needed a brown eyeliner I haven't looked back. I have the suede brown colour and it is a really gorgeous colour, velvety and soft like suede, it's not too dull or harsh and it looks lovely with my colouring. Definitely will continue to repurchase this product over and over again (lazy days, ie every day, i just put this on my upper eyelid and very finely on my lower lash line and it emphasizes my eyes nicely with minimal effort, a lippie down for sometimes coming off to easily but still worth it)

YAY! finally a foundation that I can freely slap on and not worry about mixing it with other foundations so it would blend better on my skin! I have spots, uneven skin tone, this works a treat
I bought this on a whim, i wish I spent a little more time looking around. There's nothing particularly wrong with the scent..but there's also nothing that really stands our or justifies the expensive price!! Good staying power though and gorgeous packaging, I hope the scent grows on me. It's something I would not wear everyday but it sure is pretty to look at.
A really nice sparkly, peach scent that isn't generic or cheap smelling, good price. I really like it. However, the staying power is dismal and i find myself really dousing myself in this thing for it to have any effect. I would not repurchase which is a shame because the scent is yummy and the price is good.
gorgeous scent, great lasting power! my aunt uses it and when she leaves the room while I'm still asleep, the scent pleasantly lingers in the air, never becoming too over powering, simply delicious
This is much better than any face masks you can buy and cheaper too! After using it, 3 people complimented me on my smooth skin,.
Liquid -Clinique - Repairwear foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I love this, it was originally my mum's and I only used it because i desperately needed coverage for my skin (gagh!). This went on smoothly, i cannot blend makeup to save my life, but this was effortless, love the texture too! I would give it 5 stars but it's pretty pricey for my budget. I would deffo buy it again.
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella Sheer Eau De Toilette

I LOVE this! and not only the bottle. It has a unique scent, flowery, citrusy, I do not know, I am really bad at desrcibing fragrances. I can wear this everyday (although, i don't because I don't want to waste it, by using it when I am just going to lounge around the house). My mum commented that it smells like the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, which I am ok with...Just a really, light, feminine fragrance (I question the staying power though...)
The scent is ok, a bit generic. I have friends that love this scent. Itís not sweet, or sexy or alluring, itís boring and it reminds me of apples all right, you know apples when they turn slightly brown? A non-offensive fragrance, I could wear this in the supermarket aisle going grocery shopping. It takes me nowhere. Although it is nice to have fragrances on the market that does not smell too strongly of flowers but is fruitier.
Light, soft and very feminine. Much better than the Euphoria perfume. It is very wearable, not too powerful. I can imagine running barefoot through a field of flowers on a cool day, wearing a soft cotton dress when I have this scent on.
I have always read about Burtís Bees products in American magazines and I finally got the chance to try it while I was on holiday in Japan, so disappointed. It moisturizes, but nothing special at all. It smells a bit like wood polish.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Passionfruit Body Butter

This is my favorite out of all the body butters available. I love the smell, although I would not layer anything on top of it (no perfumes). My aunt and my friend use it and they both love it. It may be a little sweet for some people. The idea of the packaging is cute but not all that functional, I prefer a pump instead of a tub, more hygienic, and I could not use this everyday because some days I donít need lotion (I moisturize my body usually in the Winter) and other days I just want a non-scented lotion. People have commented on the horrible taste, itís TRUE!! Nasty stuff, I wash my hands after applying it.
