I really like this. I'm not good at describing scents, but I agree with previous reviewer and it definitely doesn't smell cheap. It lasts a very long time on me and I always get complimented on it.
I love this. I'm nc37 and I find if I use a couple of carefully blended dots on my cheekbones I get a nice natural glow. I use mine with benetint. I do think that like all Benefit stuff that the packaging is awful. Still don't understand highlighter in a nail polish container. Also as a previous review said, the product tends to get stuck around the screw top and looks gross. It's not the cheapest product but I've found a little goes a long way and a bottle lasts ages.
I bought this on a total whim. I was browsing and thought this was a pretty colour. On my nc42 skin it's just a nice pretty red. I can't see any fushia on me. It is very comfortable to wear and doesn't dry my lips out. I found it last 3-4 hours (with eating/drinking) before it disappears. Overall I'm pretty pleased with this.
Palettes -MAC - Pro Colour Palette/Small Eye Shadow

This is a great idea! I keep all my favourite shadows together and can easily see them if I have time in the morning to try a different look. It's nice and slim so can be easily transported. Only trouble with these is that I keep getting tempted to fill them!!
I recently got this and on my nc42 skin it looks pretty and natural with just a hint of shimmer. It's a pretty coppery/pinky colour on me and I think it's definitely a summer colour. I didn't find the lipstick drying at all which pleased me as I was worried about that!
I love this. I have extremely curly thick hair and this stuff works wonders on it, making it look absolutely beautiful. I use this on my damp hair after washing and just let it air dry. Then when it's dry I add a drop daily just to tame frizz. it makes my hair smooth and look fantastic with no frizz! It is expensive, but a little goes a long way.This is my HG hair product, and I no longer use any other product so I guess I'm saving money overall. My only bugbear with this is the bottle, as there have been a few near misses. i think I"d cry if I spilt it!
Scrubs -Soap and Glory - Flake Away Spa Body Polish

This is a really effective scrub. Lots of them that I've tried before have teeny grains that have no impact but this one really makes a difference, to the point where if I scrub too hard it hurts! However, the scrub does leave my legs feeling beautifully soft, even before moisturising and they have a nice sheen. This does have quite a sweet fruity smell which if you didn't like would be unbearable as it is quite strong.
Love this. it is a staple on my dresser. It has a lovely floral smell, although at times it can be a bit overpowering so I tend to use it at night, slathered on with cotton socks. When i wake up, it leaves my feet super soft! i do feel that this is expensive when compared with similar products, but I really do like the present and i always seem to receive it as a gift so that saves my pennies! Be careful not to much to much on as it can tingle!
This was a pretty inoffensive floral scent but for me nothing stood out about it, which made it seem quite generic and therefore I couldn't justify the price tag. I used some and ended up giving it too a friend as I was just unimpressed. Staying power wasn't great on me either. However, I did like the bottle.
Conditioner -Regis - Cashmere Kera-Forte Conditioner

Love this! It's brilliant. I use this in conjunction with the shampoo as a and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny even my DH and mom comment on it. Very impressed. Every so often I get bored of it but always end up coming back to this. i love the floral scent, but it can be a bit overpowering if you're not a fan!
I used to use this range religiously a couple of years ago and loved it. The smell is beautiful, it lathers up well and cleans my hair so well I only need to shampoo it once even though I use alot of product. As always, I got bored with it and tried a range of things but nothing seemed quite the same so I came back to this and it's just as fab as I remembered. I think its around £10 a bottle, but a little goes a long way and it lasts my a while (3 months or so). I tend to buy the gift sets when I see them to make it even cheaper! Overall, a very good buy!
I used this as a weekly deep conditioning treatment and I found that it did leave my incredibly dry hair very soft. I would say that I had to use quite a lot of it to cover all of my thick hair and i did find that therefore makes the product quite expensive for me to use as I went through the tube rather quickly. The tube was difficult to get the last bit of the product out from and I felt i wasted quite a bit. Despite these complaints, I think i would buy the product again as it made my hair feel lovely and gave it a nice shine.
Lotions/ Creams -Boots - Botanics Nourishing Body Butter

This is quite moisturising and worked reasonably well on my very dry skin although it did take a long time to soak in. I just felt that it was heavily fragranced and I found this incredibly off-putting. However, it cost me around £5 for a 500ml tub which lasted a long time so it does give value for money if you can bear the scent.
Ergh! This is awful. It does absolutely nothing except very basic moisturising - for which I could have bought a much cheaper product. I have noticed no difference to dark circles or puffiness. I'm trying desperately to use this up as I hate throwing products away, especially at this price. And why do you have to put your fingers into the jar? I usually hate doing that and only bought this ieven though that fact due to recommendations. Will never repurchase and will prob not even use if I get as a GWP when i buy my 3-step. Pointless product.
This was the first red lip product that I ever tried as i usually focus on my eyes. However, i like to mix it up a bit! Initially, i bought it to wear in conjunction with the original viva glam lipstick that i bought at the same time. I really liked the look when they were layered over each other but for me this is a 'going out' look. I have also worn venetian lustreglass on it's own for daytime and i think it gives just the right amount of sheer colour and shine onto my lips. I'm glad i found this as it giives me a different look.
