Let me just begin by saying that when looking at reviews on here, anything below a 3.5 with a hefty amount of reviews doesn't warrant a buy from me. I might make an exception if it's drugstore, though. Why am I saying this? Because I just wanted to point out that, baring that info in mind, I was surprised to see a hyped up product like this get a rating of 3.6 (at the time of writing …Read more

Can't believe I'm the first to review this but here we go. I'm just going to cut to the chase: beautiful blush - gorgeous colour, creamy and blendable, very chic and classy packaging, relatively affordable price but... ZERO LASTING POWER.

I actually got this for free as part of a 3 for 2 deal at Boots, but the price there said it was ten pounds (or 13 dollars at the time …

Disappointed.

Had high expectations for this product - hoped it would be 'the one' to get rid of acne marks. Cult classic, good reviews all round. But alas, two stars instead of one for not breaking me out (at all), sinking well into the skin, and the price was right. But other than that it did nothing.

Didn't improve skin texture, didn't even out …

Wasn't 100% sure what rating to give this product, as I'm still on the fence about what, exactly, my expectations were. Disclaimer: skincare noob talking here, unless you count LRP Effaclar Duo as a serum, this would count as my first one. So apologies if my ignorance shines through in some places. I only bought this because I didn't want to jump into the 10% lactic acid serum …Read more

First, about me: normal ish skin that can go through phases of being quite dry. I'm never oily anywhere.
- What I was looking for: an industrial strength full coverage concealer that isn't too thick.
- what I have to cover: mild acne scarring on both cheeks, little bit of redness round the nose, mild-to-moderate dark under eyes that are quite sunken in (doesn't look too …

Felt compelled to write this review as soon as I could because it's just that good. The first thing that ran through my mind when I wore it the first time was 'why?'. No, not why did I bother, but why did I not find this before, and why did I ever bother with my higher end lipsticks?

I'm a very particular person with lipstick, I have high expectations and am …

I have to say I'm not too sure why the ratings are so high for this mascara. Don't get me wrong, overall I thought it was pretty good, but not an incredibly memorable mascara if you think of the hundreds upon hundreds that are out there.

Two major cons:

1. It doesn't live up to its' claims.

Max Factor mascaras are so raved about - either on the …

Honestly? I was desperate to love this BB cream, I really was, because I'd paid so much money for it (58 dollars!). Despite older people lecturing me on shopping for expensive makeup (because for some reason 19 year olds are only allowed to use drugstore or something?) I decided to go for this BB cream because:

a) the ratings seemed pretty good on here
b) had a good amount of …

Dec/22/2016

I have the same problem with these polishes as I do with OPI - they're very streaky, need several coats to achieve 'true' opaqueness, and by the time you've done that your nails are all bubbly and bumpy and overall just look bad. Bear in mind that I'm not very good at nail polish (not an expert by far) so perhaps if you're more experienced you may not face these …Read more

Polishes - essence - The Gel Nail Polish (All Colors)

Dec/22/2016

Hands down the best nail polish I've ever tried! Only one gripe, though: it chips and flakes easily, but that is without a top coat (as when I first tried it I didn't have a top coat to apply and the polish had chipped the next day).

This nail polish for me is the same way others would describe an eyeshadow that "blends itself" - it does the work for you. You just …
