bought it to use as a highlighter, and used it a few times, but for me it just looks like too much gliter. i dont like looking like a gliter ball, but thats exactly how it makes me look. and yes i do put just a bit of it. every me i used it, i had to put some powder on top of it to tone it down. really wish i didnt spend my money on it.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

This product is so bad. as many others say its just way too glitery. gliter gliter gliter...just too much.i dont want gliter on my face, i want it to be natural, but this highlighter is not natural at all. I have a CID highlighter, and its a bit similar by how it looks, but the mac one just seems to have chunks of gliter in it., which just doesnt look nice. so no, a big no to this product ever again. its going back to the shop. good bye
I dont think it does anything for setting my make-up, however I love using it to moisturise and refresh my face. Also use it at night to before my face cream. Spray Fix+ and then apply my night cream, which helps to provide some moisture to be locked in my the cream. When I spray it, my face feels so nice and refreshed.
I do like this cream. I only used it a few times so dont yet know long term effect of it. But the times I did use it, it felt so soft and plesant to apply on my skin, and I always get very excited about using it. After application my skin feels soft.It claims to be good for eczema so will try use it on my kids to see if it does anything for that. However im not too happy that it has parabens, especially that LUSH claims to sell natural products.
I got this as a sample. I was really excited to try it and hoped i would really like it, but i didnt. It feels very light and skin feels smooth, but it made my skin shine alot (im a combination skin type). Really glad i didnt buy the full size pot. will not buy ever again, if you want to try it, get the sample first.

like for many others, this product does nothing for me. Not worth the money
This is one of the worst product I have ever used. Yes it does even out skin tone on the eye lid, but if it creases almost within minutes, what is the point of even putting it on??? Did not work for me at all.
I love the colour on me (NC25-30). It can be very sheer or build it up for more colour. It gives me a natural flushed cheeks. However I noticed it doesnt last for long at all, couple of hours at the most. Im still going to keep try to work out how to make it stay on for longer. I didnt pay the full price for it, paid about £7, but other wise I think its a bit too expensive for what it is. I will not repurchase this, as I will keep trying other cream blushes. (Peek a boo is my first cream blush). If it had a good staying power I would absolutely love it.

This Product did nothing for me at all. I really wish I didnt spend my money on it. I use it sometimes together with my other colour corrector, only so that I dont throw it away, but it really makes no difference.
My fav mascara ever. Stays on my lashes all day until I take it off, does not give me panda eyes, makes my lashes fuller and longer ( I do have very short and thinn lashes). Would buy it again and again.
I love the colour, it is so so soooo pretty. I was unsure that it would suit my skin NC 25-30, but it looks really nice. The best blush in terms of colour I have used. Staying power is ok to last a few hours.

I love this product. It works for me to brighten my under eye area. It also sets the concealer really well and makes it stay on all day. Unlike my usual face powders didnt last, made it look cakey and show my fine lines. Love it :) Also I think the price of £18 is fairly cheap and It was lower than I expected. And it will last for a ages.
Skincare - Body -Clarins - Age Control Hand Lotion

I am still undecided about this hand lotion, even though I have used up more than half of it. I like it and dont like. I think this hand lotion is not for those who need to really moisturise their hands. They claim on the packaging thjat it softens hands, I really havent noticed that, maybe unless you already have soft hands. It sinks into my skin really fast and is not greasy, as I dont use my palms to rub the cream in, I dont know if it leaves palms feel greasy or not. It feels quite light on my hands and I dont feel my hands are covered in cream, this its good during the summer. However, it does leave a bit of a shine on the hands but not for long. I like the SPF 15 (the reason I bought it, but could probably find cheaper hand cream with SPF), as I always have my hands exposed to the sun. Over all this hand lotion is ok, but not for those who need a good moisturiser for dry hands. im not sure I would buy it again, I have to try other hand creams with SPF to decide.
