Fragrances -Jo Malone - Nectarine Blossom and Honey

I have loved this fragrance for some time but waited until Summer to purchase. I was a little disappointed that after the initial surge of nectarine it dried down to a cloying non descript smell. I visited the store today and layered it with Blue Agava and boy does this liven it up a lot! You still get the delicious fruit but it seems a little more grounded! I also added Wild Fig and Cassis and that too deepened the fruit explosion. These two together may well prove to be a keeper. I purchased the body cream and shower gel and scrub so I am now in debt but smelling gorgeous. I have never been a huge Jo Malone fan so I must be impressed!!!!!
i had wanted a rouge volupte lipstick for absolutely ages but being £20 i wanted to be sure that it was worth spending that much. i eventually caved in and purchased #8 fetish pink as i thought #7 lingerie pink would be a bit too pale and wash me out. i realllllly don't like the feeling of this product on my lips. maybe its because i'm used to MAC lipsticks which i LOVE, but this product makes me feel like i've got a lot on my lips. the texture is so soft but not to my taste. the colour payoff however is excellent and it does last. i shall not be repurchasing. on another note, the packaging is fab
i had really high hopes for this product! having had severe acne before and have only just had it cleared - i am extremely careful about what i put on my face for fear of a breakout. seeing that it said 'oil balancing' i thought it would give me just enough moisture and ensure i didn't break out. however, this did. badly. and i am so so dissapointed. instead, i've gone back to my oil free moisturising fluid by nivea visage which has never let me down.

LOVE IT! super sparkly and utterly gorgeous! brilliant for the summer..will definately repurchase and the packaging is super cute!
i like the idea behind it, with the anitoxidants etc which is great in theory, however, i would not recommend this product for anyone who breaks out easily like me. i am already in medication for my acne and although it made my skin look bright and fresh the day i used it, the next day my skin broke out something horrible, therefore i shall be throwing away that tester!
awful. wouldn't even bother trying it. the stick is terrible at getting the lip gloss out of the tube and the lip gloss itself wears off within minutes. total waste of money

overall, im quite happy with this product, for one, its so cheap! i have two of them, both taste pretty much the same. i like the tastes, but its quite strong and i would only put it on if i wasn't planning to eat or drink anytime soon! a little on the sticky side but its staying power is impressive. would definitely repurchase!
Liquid -MAC - Hyper Real SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

i had high hopes for MAC foundation as everybody raves about them. however, i am pretty dissapointed with the overall finish and coverage that it gives me. the colour is a good match to my skin tone, although a little on the orange side i have to admit. its quite a runny liquid and you do need a fair bit to get a good coverage. i hate the bottle - glass just isn't a good idea and i have been close to dropping it on a number of occasions. doesn't cover up my skin very well so i always have to put on more, and doesn't last amazingly well either. will not be repurchasing.
great product. really impressed. together with the concealer my acne prone skin looks flawless. amazing!
Moisturizers -Laura Mercier - Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 15

Overall a good moisturiser for someone who regularly breaks out, very light and goes on nicely. doesn't have a strong smell so it would suit most people and the spf is a great added bonus! would definitely repurchase. i have found laura mercier products to be great for acne prone skin.
has to be my favourite lip colour of all time!!!!!!!! i adore this product. definately my signature colour, although may be too light for some skin tones. can dry out lips but add a lipgloss over the top, my fav is a dior one - they're great - and you're good to go!
I had high hopes for this cleanser - good consistancy, smelt alright.. however, after a week or so of using it. broke my skin out so i have discontinued use. does leave skin silky though!
apart from the occasionall leak into my handbag, i love this product! gives a plump without great pain and the colour is luscious!
I have had two of these in my time and I think that there are much better mascaras out there ie lancome. its not a mad mascara, very natural looking but for me, i love big black eyes so this really didnt do the trick. also, it dries out quicker than most others for some reason! better off looking elsewhere!
before i dropped the product and smashed it, i was really unimpressed, not worth the money at all! mother nature does a much better job without the smell!
