When i saw this i just knew i had to have it, but once i found it on a fav video's of goss on youtube, i could not find it anywhere. On ebay it was going for crazy prices, and was worried about the authenticity if i got it from ebay. But i was at a CCO in Oxford UK, and it was there!!!! OMG, and it was still pricy at £82, but i had to get it. After i bought the product i saw it contained less than a bobbi brown lipstick. But i still love it. The concept it perfect, i love it. Its great for trips and weekend away. I have said id buy this again, not that i would need to, but if something was to happen to my one. Overall if you love bb lipsticks get it, you can mix the colours if you think all of them wont work for you, also if you are a MUA this is so verstile for you!

I have the colour nutmeg, and I LOVE this MMU, its great. I have BE i bought after my BP, but it did not match its standards one bit! so sold my BE on ebay for dirt cheap It gives the best coverage. I was wearing the BE one day and playing with my baby nephew, and he was wearing a white baby grow, and it was all dirty, like a foundation colour and asked my sis why is he wearing dirty cloths, and she said she just changed him and that was odd. I then realised, its BE foundation I am wearing!!! But that does not happen with this MMU Also with everyone having problems with the product going everywhere when you open it, when you first get your MMU rather than peeling off that white sticker seal, just make tiny hole with a pin, as many as you need. And if you have already pealed it off, then clean it up, take the tray out, and clean everything, and stick a sticker over the top, I did this to all my loose powders and just used wrapping stickers I got from WHSmiths. It keeps everything clean

I got this as a GWP, but id been uoset if i spent any money on this item. It feels good, I love using it, but not for what it does, just how it feels. Its a very gentle exfo, but really there is no exfo going on! lol Its not worth the money, cheaper drug store is way better and effective. If you have the money to spare then its a treat, don't expect it to work wonders
Scrubs -Jo Malone - Vitamin E Body Treatment Scrub
sofi786 1/13/2010 4:55:00 PM
BEAUTIFUL! Its a luxuary porduct, its a good scrub, only problem is the price, but hence its a luxuary product. I have other scrubs that work better, but its just the whole jo malone experience that i love and would buy this again! The vit e selection is great from jo malone!
LOVE this product, its great and i LOVE using it. Not many people like the smell, but i personally love it! (Its one of the reasons i love using it) But other than that its great, its noo-greasy, i have oily hair and its nice to apply this and not to have the feel of my hair is dirty and need to wash it again
This looks great for about 20sec, before it does a disappearing act! If you are wearing a black eyeliner on your bottom lashes, it mixes and you get a dirty looking colour in your waterline. But i do like it if i go for a natural look, but then phooof... its gone
Really wanted to love this product, but like everyone said has no staying power, goes on great. but what i use it or is a smokey eye, or a base, works very well. But on the waterline goes within 10mins, so not much point. Pro's - its very creamy and easy to blend. This is an expensive item, so will rather use mac smoulder or fluidline to line my waterline. If anyone has found the perfect black eyeliner for the waterline that stays within setting it with black eyeshadow (I mean who would do that?) please let me know!
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Skin Doctors Ingrow Go
sofi786 1/13/2010 4:13:00 PM
This product is great, yes it smells very strong,but it gets the job done, and is worth the price, £11 i think i paid for it. any smell is better than having been left with a scar trying to get rid on ingrowing hairs. and because it looks in such short space of time, i love it! Im suprised its got not great reviews! Totally recommend this
I love this product, dont like the pot, dont like the price, it doesnt last long, but i love the feel, i love the colour. I dont care it doesnt last long, which lip butter does! Its a real treat, and one i want! Paired with Gosh Darling lipstick for a gorgeous nude lip is awsome!
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect 557 Rose Denim
sofi786 1/13/2010 11:27:00 AM
I love this gloss! I own an awful lot of high end glosses, but this one is my fav, it not sticky and on my NC30 skin really looks lovely and would defo buy again! Its one of dior's best selling glosses, and the glitter looks great, does not sting me, and although the staying power is not that good, which gloss is? Oh one thing i dont like is if i am wearing this, over lipstick or on its own, and have my hair open, and then the wind blows and its all over my hair!!!! But I blame British weather, lol
Lipstick -GOSH - Velvet Touch Lipstick #134 Darling
sofi786 1/13/2010 11:20:00 AM
There is this HUGE hype about this lipstick, and every time I go to buy it in Superdrug’s I totally forget what I came to buy, and walk out with a bunch of different items. But I have NO nude lipsticks, and really wanted to try nude lips, so I finally picked one up. I missed out on the 2 for 3 offers they had, never mind at £6 it’s a great price. First time I used it; I hated it, and thought what are people talking about???? It make me look like I was wearing concealer on my lips, and washed me out completely, I looked like I was dead, not attractive at all! It made all the imperfections on my lips stand out, during the winter I get terrible flaky lips and I have the worst habit of peeling them (uuuggghhhhh) Then I read some more reviews and people were saying you your lips need to be in good condition, no chaps etc. That is right, when I first applied it, I just went for it, and with my flaky pigmented lips, it looked awful, I had to clean it off within 15secs. But people are reviewing it and saying it put a gloss over, that is also nice. And they dab it on, rather than just applying it directly. So I thought I would use my Korres lip butter in Jasmin, and that looks like a lovely nude, and then dabbed darling over it. It looks beautiful! I love the total nude lips look, but not on me. I am NC 30, and it just looks wrong on my skin. This way I have a little nude, with an undertone of my own lip colour. This makes it much more wearable, for me anyway. Overall I think every girl should own a nude lip in their collection, I think it would be great to tone down dark and bright colours, so it’s useful. And at £6 it cannot hurt! Would definitely recommend, and buy again!
This is a product I bought because I love my tweezerman tweezers and thought the eyelash curlers would be equally good! However I have trouble curling all my eyelashes in one go, it misses the outer and iner eyelashes, and then when i go to curl again, i end up with a horrible dent, and usually both my eyelashes end up looking different. I don't know maybe I am not using them properly, but I do not have large eyes, its average size. Defo will look into buying shu when i accidently loose these pair
