Polishes -Barry M - NaNail Paint, Spring Green 290

Pretty colour, good formula and staying power. STAINS BADLY! This is such a shame because it's a really great polish.
This is not my favourite liquid eyeliner (that position is held by Collection 2000's Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner - cheaper, better brush, better application and better lasting time) but this is by no means a bad eyeliner. I have it in the shade Azure which is a beautiful deep blue colour that really makes my hazel eye pop. The pen nib is a little stiff but other than that it's a good applicator pen. The colour streaks a little on application and it DOES smudge after a couple of hours wear (which the Collection 2000 liner does not) but it's generally a good formula and the range of colours is fantastic. I recommend this eyeliner for anyone who wants wonderful, exotic colours liquid eyeliner. I'm not entirely sure if I'll buy this again... It's only because it has so many nice colours that I bought this product. If Collection 2000 expand the colours of their liquid eyeliner I won't be buying this again.
Lovely lemony smell that leaves my skin really well moisturised. I wouldn't apply it too vigorously or you might end up with greasy skin. I wouldn't buy it again because it's fairly expensive. If I was treating myself I might though.
I have the shades Waterlilly and Sugarplum which are two gorgeous shades of pink (don't buy the lipstick based on the website swatch - the colours are waaaaaay off). I bought them for £5 each as opposed to the usual £10 because I had the money off vouchers Boots usually gives out. This makes the lipsticks a complete bargain! They have a slight sheen and when applied over lip-salve they really do feel moisturising and don't dry out my lips. The lasting power is not great but this doesn't bother me. I recommend these to anyone who is fussy about their lipsticks as these are moisturising and the colours are exceptionally pretty.
Deodorants -Dove - Invisible Dry - Anti White Marks

I have the spray version, I'm not entirely sure what scent it is because it doesn't say on the can but the scent is my biggest gripe! It smells powdery, like older women would use. I do sweat but I find the deo-smell covers any other smell. It really is no white marks which is really great and it dries quick, but the smell is so bad which means I won't be repurchasing.
I use this with the matching shampoo. Gives me fantastic soft, light and shiny hair. Great!
Shampoo -Dove - Dove Advanced Color Care Shampoo for Darkened Hair

I have thick, long but fine hair dye it hair black and red-black and this is the best shampoo (and the conditioner) for dyed hair! It's amazing how soft this makes my hair feel and I need to wash it less because the grease just isn't coming back as fast as it used to. I swapped to this after my scalp started to get itchy and irritated and this completely soothes my scalp. Give it a try. No doubt you'll be as pleasantly surprised as I am!
I normally use the plain Vaseline but decided to switch to this version. Exactly the same but with a lovely sheen and smell. Perfect for winter as it moisturises but also gives a bit of colour.
This is a gorgeous colour with a wonderful application. It's a warm, gold shimmer - what you see in the bottle is what you get on your nails. A little on the pricey side (just short of £7 for 10ml) but if you wait until you get a £5 off voucher for No7 these really become great value for money. If you're in need of a gold polish I really can't recommend this enough - it's seriously beautiful and the application couldn't be easier!
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara

Very average. It did add some length but it certainly didn't add any volume. I wouldn't bother buying it tbh.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - CREME MAINS Hand Cream

This product is currently offered free with a magazine which is why I'm going to re-buy it, but after that I doubt I'll buy it again. I have the Fleur Cherie hand cream and it smells divine. It's travel size, which is why I bought it, and does a good job of making my hands soft. If you can afford it, I recommend it!
Lipstick -Chanel - Levres Impression de Chanel - Ink Palette

I've had this product for years so I don't know if Chanel still sells this but I hope so. I have nothing new to add. It's wonderful. My favourite is the pink shade. It makes my lips a lovely colour.
While it does give a nice shine I can't cope with this lip gloss. It's sticky and gloopy. If you can cope with that on your lips go for it, but I can't.
The smell is pure attraction! If a man wears this I will just melt in their arms. It is just so sexy! So lovely to smell.
The first perfume I fell in love with. Smells like lovely fresh green apples.
