The butter just sits on the skin, feels sticky and transfers onto everything you wear. Eventually the coconut smell fades and you're left with this peculiar smell.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

I have long straight hair, using the right products makes a huge difference to how my hair feels afterwards. I've had this product for ages and decided to use it again. It did make my hair noticeably softer withought feeling greasy. The serum is lightweight and has a unnoticeable, somewhat fresh scent but I expect a serum to add shine and luster to my hair and unfortunately my hair looked more matt with it. I'm tempted to purchase another serum and see how that will compare. I've tried morrocan oil, left my hair nice on the first day but day 2 felt quite greasy and limp.
I bought this mascara after using YSL faux cills for a couple of years. At first I really liked it compared to YSL but the more I look in the mirror the more sparse it makes my lashes look. The black mascara is very matte and the lashes look charcoal and feathery. This mascara doesn't give me nice glossy clean lashes I'm after. In my opinion it's just an average mascara.
Treatments (Eye) -Bobbi Brown - Hydrating Eye Cream

I bought this product about a year ago based on the good reviews on Makeupalley but I have barely used it. I was initially pleased by the fact that it doesn't sting the under eye area but when I use it straight after cleansing it starts to sting and I don't have the time in the morning to wait around before I apply it. It doesnt do anything for under eye circles and does not do anything to prevent the signs of ageing. It's not as creamy as I would expect an eye cream to be and just slides on and doesn't feel comforting. It has not done much to 'improve' the under eye area merely just moisturises 'a bit'. I won't be repurchasing.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte - Lingerie Pink

This is a great colour but I don't really want a lipstick that slides off right after I've applied it. It doesn't really stay put for longer than 5 minutes which is a real shame as the smell, colour and the soft texture are nice. I like a lipstick to stay put and this just doesn't do it. I prefer the Mac lipsticks so much more.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

After reading the reviews here, I decided to buy this mascara and I quite like it, it lengthens and curls, volumizes a little. You have to apply it quickly though to preventing getting spidery lashes but the great thing is it doesn't clump. I also recommend starting with the outer lashes first. EDIT: I stopped using this a long time ago, I want pretty girly doll-like seperated long glossy eyelashes and this just creates clumped, thick, very long lashes that spike in different directions, not the glamorous lashes I'm looking for.
