The scent isn't bad at all, it's actually quite nice about 20 minutes after spraying. I just wish it could be diluted a little. I normally like strong scents but this a little over the top. After the initial headache it turns into an O.K fragrance. I usually either love or hate perfumes and this one is an odd inbetweener for me.
This may smell somewhat generic in the bottle however the beauty of it is the way it develops on the skin. Very sexy but not overpowering I really like this scent and I love the simplicity of the bottle
wearable but nothing particularly special
ive been using this for a month now and today is the first time i actually used it properly. before i thought this was just ok, didnt really make a difference. but today i finally learned how to use it and i love it. it lengthens thickens and curls. very impressed. ive just seen the beauty in a good mascara.

this is pretty much my first hand cream (i usually just use my body moisturizer instead) so i can't compare this to anything else but i do love it. i find it very moisturizing and i do love the smell although i understand someone hating it as it is very overpowering. aside from the smell the actual cream is extremely effective.
On my lips this feels really heavy and gross, after having it on for a few minutes i feel like im covered in a layer of dirt and i have to rub it off vigorously. I don't understand the reviews of this l/g. the color is just ok and the texture and smell are horrible.
i got a free sample of this with my last LUSH purchase...its heavenly! it smells so delicious....like a bakery...once u start smelling this its hard to stop. what i love about it is that its not nauseatingly sweet. ive only used it once and i dont think it made much of a difference. would probably purchase again for the smell though. maybe ill update after using it again more properly.

ive bought this over and over again, its a staple no complaints at all.
i really like their color range actually, i have two of these and so far i haven't experienced any chipping. they go on very smoothly. EDIT: after exploring loads of other nail polish brands i rate these as just O.K...nothing particularly special about them...and they do chip quite a bit more than others but i love the packaging and i still have a quick look at them whenever i pass them buy.
i loooooooove this. i just bought it today, its such a gorgeous color. its my first blue nail polish and i have to say i adore it. before i bought this i tried on chanels blue satin but it was way too dark, i preferred this color to it. its such a great shade. i would definitely by this again!

i adore this l/g. its a lot more red than i expected it to be but i love that about it. its so powerful. i can wear it with l/s or on its own. i like to put it on dark red l/s for a nice balance. its really great, i wish i got some more now :(

i love this stuff. it really moisturizes well, my only complaint is that the color doesnt show on my lips. ill probably end up getting this in the plum color, but as a balm its definitely one of the best ive tried. i really like the packaging even though people seem to hate it. i use a brush with this but i can imagine it would be inconvenient in the future (i just bought it today)
i love this lipstick its definitely my favorite of all time, everything about it is perfect, the color is amazing and really makes a difference but still maintains a natural look. rimmel is actually one of my favorite brands. but they stopped making this when they renewed their entire collection. i hate that, because i had so many items that i absolutely loved before and its difficult trying to replace them now. :(
the reviews on this l/s were very confusing so i finally bought it and it was much too sheer for me. it barely showed up on my lips and the glitter was way too much. there was no color, even after i applied layers and layers of it. not the most useful product but i dont hate it either. it was basically just like putting glitter on my lips. i like the way its multidimensional.
