My best friend gave me 001 since she'd bought the wrong colour at the airport and I was hesitant of this stuff since I've never used a highlighter underneath my eye or anything. However, I gave it a bash and what a massive difference it's made to underneath my eyes. I look so much more bright eyed and bushy-tailed! I tend to have dark circles under my eyes which makes me look tired, but this stuff is amazing! It's one of those products where you don't think it'll do much, but once you see yourself with it on you can't live without it!
I heart this colour!! It's gorgeous with a bit of shimmer in it - shimmer not glitter! Fabulous red! Makes me feel sexy :)
My boyfriend of 2 years broke up with me just 2 weeks ago (without an explanation until 5 days later and even then it was via email) and this mascara has become my HG in that time! It survived a bucket of tears and my long lashes still looked glam! So on the upside, although I was upset, I still looked fabulous! Woo hoo! Roll on going on holiday and wearing this mascara by the pool and in the pool! :)
I've been using Fake Bake the past couple of years, but it keeps coming off on my bed sheets and well..I think it was a bit too dark for me. So, I decided to use St. Tropez Bronzing Mist. It dries in seconds and I use St. Tropez's self tan mitt to rub it in. Doesn't come off on my bed sheets, gives a more natural tan than Fake Bake and doesn't have the dreaded fake tan smell - only slightly. I think Fake Bake might be for darking skin tones. I'm surprised at this stuff because I thought it might be orange, but I have fair skin and it looks like the golden colour I go in the sun!! Fantastic!

Okay I'm ill so I decided to write some more reviews. this is silver pink i reckon. rose shimmerbrick is much nicer. looks cold and silver. cute in the pan though which is why it's getting 3.
I've been using Frederic Fekkai glossing cream and noticed it was making my hair dry and unhealthy. I found this kicking about in my drawer and decided to give it a bash again. Wow. What an amazing difference. My hair is soft, shiny, holding it's style and healthy. Also, no longer feeling like straw. So glad I decided to use this. Bye bye Freddy glossing cream.
Bad, bad mascara. Really bad. Smudges, doesn't lift lashes, gives no volume and made my lashes look stumpy. Not impressed. I don't know why I went away from Lancome mascara. Save your pennies for something more worthwhile.
I was bored with my Clinique 3 step so decided to try the wonders of a French brand and I'm so impressed! It's basically a cleansing milk with a gorgeous floral scent. My skin hasn't had a break out since switching product and there's a fabulous glow I have now too! I thought Clinique was great but this stuff is far better. It's harsh weather just now and this cleanser manages to keep my winter skin hydrated. The product does leave a sort of film on your skin, but it's not a bad thing it pretty much locks in moisture and it makes your skin incredibly soft. Plus, it protects against free radicals woop! This is a keeper :) ps: does not contain parabens or phenoxyenthanol (I have break outs of eczema and parabens irritate my skin), not animal tested and does not contain any animal ingredients or artificial colourings!

I love this!! I'm wearing it during the day by itself and at night I wear pale pink pot rouge under it. Amazing!! So much better than Rose.
I don't wear this as a foundation, my foundation is BB moisturising balm. Instead I use it as cover up and it works well for that. Although I say I'd buy it again, it's a bit on the hefty side for just cover up aaaand I rarely need to use cover up since I'm blessed and have my mama's clear skin. Good on the whole though.
This is the only fake tanner I wear! It looks like mahogany when it comes out the bottle, but that's an excess colour guide - you rub that off in the morning with a towel. I swear by this as it NEVER looks orange - something about being deeper penetrating than other brands...Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The only thing is, WEAR THE GLOVES! EDIT EDIT EDIT: Right I've moved to St. Tropez instead of using Fake Bake. FB was too dark (like mahogany), the smell was strong and it kept coming off on my beds sheets. St. Tropez is the exact opposite. Perfect for me! I'll give it 2 lippies though because I love the name.

I stupidly didn't read the label on this product when I first bought it and thought it was duff. Then I read the label last after coming out the shower and thought I'd give it a go on my towel dried hair - as intructed! I can't believe the difference!! I have long, fine curls and now they're so smooth and have high shine :) I also used this product with Glossing Cream and Luscious Curls so maybe they helped. This is great for healthy looking polished hair, but for ultimate shine it's best to go with the shining mist stuff by FF. I still love this and will continue to use it :)
At first I wasn't so sure about this cream, but then I read the review below mine and decided to rub it into my hands then pat it on and what a difference! It's fasntastic. I see complaints about the smell, but I don't think it's much cause to talk about. I like it :)
I love smelling this on my boyfriend. It's such a sexy, clean, fresh and not at all overpowering scent. Mmmmmmmmmmmm definitely lingers in my mind ;)
I <3 this colour! I use it on my toenails all the time and I feel so cute with this colour! It's a pink/red and has a fabulous gloss finish :)
