This is my HG mascara. I have shortish, thin, sparse eyelashes and this makes my eyelashes longer and a bit fuller. It is not really very volumizing but I really love how dark black the color is and I find the applicator easier for me to apply than the usual brush wands. I find that it holds the curl very well ( and believe me, I work really hard for the little curl that I am able to get so I don't want my mascara to undo my hard work!). The only down side is that it is not the easiest mascara to take off but I have no problems when I use the Lancome Bifacial. Also, since this is a product that is only sold overseas, it is hard sometimes to get it.
I usually don't buy drugstore lipsticks because most have an awful taste and/or smell to them and this one was no exception. I wanted to try Rimmel lipsticks because I hear such raves about them. Unfortunately for me, nothing to rave home about. The color was ok for my NW20 skin. However, this lipstick has a horrible taste so I would not buy. It smells nice and while wearing it you don't taste any bad taste but if you eat anything or drink anything while wearing this lipstick, it is an awful awful taste. I have dry lips and this lipstick made my lips drier and caked on my lips.
I don't wear alot of lipstick but have been hankering lately to start using some. I usually use MAC lipglass lipgloss but have been wanting to get something not so shiny to wear. When I do buy lipstick, I don't generally go for the expensive ones and look for one that is moderately priced. I always want to like drugstore lipstick but I usually don't buy it because it always has a nasty taste and usually a "not pleasant to me" smell. For some reason, I decided to try this Boots line. And I love this lipstick! It does not have a bad taste and no weird waxiness and doesn't feel thick on my lips. Feels very natural. I got it in Golden Rose and it goes wonderful with my NW20 skin. It is a nice natural look with a little color. I do have to reapply at least once a day but I don't mind considering the price and I love the design of the tube so it is fun to put on. It is not super moisturizing but it does not suck the life out of your lips either. I usually apply lip balm with SPF underneath anyway whether I am using lipgloss or lipstick. Most DS lippies would still suck the moisture out of my lips even when I wear lipbalm but this one does not. I will definitely repurchase and want to try some of the other colors in this line. I got this one for $9.99
