Fragrances - Jean Paul Gaultier - Fragile

Feb/04/2008

I was put off JPG perfume after his signature fragrance, which, after wearing for a time many years ago, began to make me feel sick whenever I whiffed it. I was given Fragile as a gift and my heart sank thinking I'd be in for yet another overly-cloying scent - how wrong I was!. Fragile is simply beautiful and to my untrained nose has an intoxicating blend of orange blossom and peach, very …Read more

Bronzers - RIMMEL - Sun Shimmer Instant Tan Make Up - Light

Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2006

A miracle product and I don't use the word miracle lightly or EVER infact. I am about as pale as is humanly possible, I do not tan. I have tried upwards of about 20 different self tans, lotions with a hint of self tan, bronzers, tinted moisturisers you name it I've tried it.
I tried this £4.99 instant tanner (I got light matte i.e NO shimmer) and within about 30 seconds I achieved …

Lotions/ Creams - Dior - Pure Poison Body Lotion

3.0

Jun/29/2006

Beautifully scented but very delicate and moisturising, left my skin like silk. doesn't really smell like Pure Poison perfume, it just compliments the notes of the fragrance by picking it up slightly. Very nice lotion to apply, quicly absorbs and is not sticky.

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Brow

The price is an absolute joke, this effect can be achieved with any of the zillion other eye pencils on the market at a 5th of the price. Sometimes it's worth splashing out on a quality product and sometimes you just can't tell the damn difference. High Beam works in exactly the same way, as does any pale eye pencil. Keep your money for your foundation and mascara and all the other …Read more

When I first tried this a while ago it wasn't quite right, no idea why but it was too dark. After giving it another go it's much better and is pretty near to being perfect neutral for me. As other people have said, go easy with it and you get a taupey result which (for my complexion) is a near perfect neutral.

I have very dark brown/black hair, pale skin and blue eyes so I …

Masks - LUSH - Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask

Jun/04/2006

This mask is like concrete but don't be put off by that, it's like masks used to be in the 80s only 100 times better. It smells extremely minty and refreshing and has large chunks of stuff in to help with the exfoliation as you wash it off. You're meant to leave it for 20mins then wash it off but I often leave it for up to an hour, yes it dries like rock and it takes a good few …Read more

I DETEST original Poison, I have been known to describe it as hailing from Satan's anus, but this addition to the Poison line is stunningly beautiful. Yes it's Dior so it smells expensive and if you over-do it you'll be knocking people out around you, and not in a good way.
Apply this sparingly, I bought the 50ml Parfum and one little squirt is enough for the whole day …

When I took the seal off this big beauty my nose nearly exploded, it smells SENSATIONAL. the name and drawing on the bottle suggest a soft, sweet child-like scent but prepare yourself as it's tarty, berry, sherbety sparklers-up-the-nose FANTASTIC!! it smells like a concentrated grape juice with a lashing of sherbet and a handful of fermented sugar, it's THE most delicious Philosophy gel …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - benefit Cosmetics - Ooh la lift!

4.0

Jun/02/2006

To my amazement this product actually did what it said. I experimented by applying it on one eye over concealer and on the other under my concealer. The de-puffing worked well (decreased puffiness by 50%) in both cases but the overall appearance was better when applied over my concealer as this gave for more dramatic results with the light-reflectiveness.
I also tried the product alone …

Bath Treatments - benefit Cosmetics - Jiggle Gel

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2006

This product doesn't even fall into the usual Benefit category of 'I fell in love with the packaging and gorgeousness of the idea' - the packaging is dull, dark and charmless and the scent is a cheap and unimaginative mint.
As for working on your jiggles? let your wallet jiggle instead, this does NOT work.
With Benefit, the charm of the product, the decadence, scent and …
