Best mascara I've used to date. Gives me huge, defined lashes......it's all about the special brush. I tried Diorshow mascara thinking it would give me the same result, but when I tried this I was hooked. Only negatives is that it dries out VERY fast, and it makes my eyes watery until it dries. Small price to pay for best mascara ever!

Beautiful product. I don't use eyeliner usually, but this is the exception as it is subtle but effective. Bonus, you can use it to apply on the tips of your eyelashes after your mascara dries. So pretty - highly recommended.
I used to use English Idea's Primer which I liked, but I wanted try another primer. Lorac Aquaprime is really great - I was surprised at how different this one is to the English Ideas. Very light, non-greasy and comes in an easy to use squeeze tube. I probably noticed how much I relied on it when I was running late and decided to skip a few steps in my beauty routine. Later in the day I looked in the mirror and couldn't believe how uneven my skintone looked! From now on I always include Aquaprime in my routine.

I started to use this after I was shown YSL Touche Eclat (as I wanted something similar because YSL colors weren't as good a match for me). I used to use BeneFit LemonAid as an eyelid primer until I realized that I needed something less 'yellow' & more neutral to cover the darkness of my deep set eyes. Awesome for this purpose as I never wore eyeshadow before trying this because I always used a heavy line of liquid eyeliner. Loved how much my eyes were brightened so I started to try eye shadows. After running out of #2 I decided I wanted the #1 color because my skin has VERY strong pink undertones rather than yellow - perfect color for me.
I just purchased this lip gloss yesterday at Holt Renfrew in the colour Vanilla. I actually purchased Nars 'Striptease' gloss first, but took it back because I could not stop thinking about the packaging & scent of this one (I know, I'm a sucker for a pretty package). I do have to say that I value the scent of the product I put on my lips very much; after all, we end up consuming some of it anyway. This is a very HIGH quality product with gorgeous packaging to boot. The reason I was looking for something was because my Chanel Glossimer 'Whisper' is discontinued and I can't get that colour any more - need a replacement. Vanilla is the PERFECT shade to use with my Cargo reverse lip liner, as I like that neutral nude/beige, glossy lip from the sixties (with big, black eyelashes....beautiful). The trouble is I always end up with some pinky kind of tone that brings out too much "lip"; not the look I want. I am trying to conceal the lip without looking like a pale, deathly, ghost. This gloss is translucent enough to avoid that, but just the right 'beige' opacity for the look I am trying to achieve. Another user mentioned the size of the applicator wand being too small, but I find that I layer lashings of product on for the initial application, and I find the size is great for that and touch ups later in the day/night (good control for a gloss). Though I still love my DuWop Lip Venom, I find the tube applicator is messy by comparison. If you have the chance to try this, go for it! Even if you use it as a daytime fixer-upper without any other maker up, you'll still feel polished (tried Guerlain 'Nude Sun' gloss for this very purpose, but Besame tastes better!). Enjoy!
Most beautiful blush I've ever used. I am a PPP and this is the HG blush I've been looking for all my life! When you want a healthy glow on your cheeks without looking make up, this is it. The cream consistency is perfect to smudge in so you can go as light or as deep as you want...just build up the color. The packaging is to die for - so much product I doubt I'll ever need to buy again. It's not exactly dirt cheap to buy, but this will last and last. Now part of my daily routine so I can look natural in the day without appearing to be wearing make up at all. Adore it - go and buy some - now.
I bought this in 'Magic Mist' after being talked out of the 'Fairy Dust'. The color is very subtle (shimmery champagne), and I use it on my face around my eyes. I have brown hair and brown eyes and the sales associate suggested this color would be better than the baby pink. The packaging is gorgeous and comes with a puff so you don't need to worry about a brush. Really nice sparkle and highlights your eyes.
I don't mind this & you don't need very much. Just a dab either side of your nose and on brow bones. It's also great to hold glitter products in place. The issues are that it's very thick and doesn't seem to blend as well as some other products like this.
I have this in Purrfect and it is an iridescent lilac colored glitter. I use Pout Love Glow to make the glitter stick so that I can put it in specific places on my face. The only problem is that I don't wear anything else lilac; pity the other colors don't work either.
Great packaging but unfortunately I found it just as good as Benefit 'High Beam' (but a little lighter in texture) however it's a lot more expensive. Nice product though.
Nice nude lipgloss....I love the taste.
I use this with Mac lipliner in mauve and lipstick in kool and it is a perfect match. I wanted my Mac lipstick to be more glossy and this works great for touch-ups throughout the night without having to reapply lipstick. My favourite gloss.
Really great when using lip plumping treatments as it stops the 'bleed'.
This is a great color. My essential liner when I use Christian Dior plastic shine in pure beige.
This is my essential lip liner to work with 'c-thru' lipglass. Perfect nude color.
