This is my first foray into contouring powder and I struggled to choose between the Light and Medium options. I prefer the dark powder colour in the Light option but the highlighter is far too light for me. So I chose the Medium where the highlighter is a bit warmer. The dark powder is a little too dark but is buildable.
It is warmer than I would have thought for a contour powder but can be …

this does have a nice immediate concealing effect, BUT over time will dry your under eye skin and make it worse. this has happened to me, presumably the high alcohol content. won't use again.

this is a perfect light pink for everday, or for French manicures. I've tried others but this is the perfect shade, not too peachy and also not too sheer-I can put on one coat and complete with top coat.
it is also a good enough consistency to cover ridges and lasts ages.
I do repurchase but usually via ebay as it is very expensive direct. It does tend to get a bit thick towards …

I am on my third bottle of this and am surprised by the low rated reviews.
It is really thick, luxurious and smells divine . I am not a huge fan of lavender normally but this is french lavender with some camphor so is a really deep floral, can't really describe it. I love this in my bath as the scent fills the room, it lathers up well and does not dry your skin.

As it is real …

I have had a few Maybelline lipsticks in lovely nude shades which I have really liked
However I was disappointed with this one. I bought Tantalising Taupe which looked lovely on my hand but was much paler on the lips AND very drying.
I will finish it with something moisturing underneath but would not repurchase.

Packaging is a lot lighter than previous versions but I …

so far I love this BB cream. I have tried a few and like this the best for coverage and colour.
Superdrug's is the only other one I like but I was tempted by the salicylic acid ingredient as I have oily skin prone to breakouts. I bought it in light as I often find tinted products darken on me, and mediums can be too orange, and so far it is perfect. [I am light/medium in skin tone with …

i tried this recently having previously liked the No7 mousse foundation that has now been changed so that the colours no longer suit.
I like the fact that it goes on evenly and coverage is good. Although I am 'middle aged' I have quite oily skin and it is great for that although I don't want a finish that is too dry and cakey.
Thankfully you only need very little of this …

Got this in Cherry Blossom and love the pale pink, non shimmery colour. I think of it as an opaque lip gloss rather than lipstick. gives great coverage and colour and lasts okay if you compare with a gloss. doesn't dry my lips. I like the pen although it is easy to twist up too much at first. will definitely buy again.

I have this in bone and mocha. Packaging is okay although the break easily. They go on smoothly but have no staying power. Replaced the mocha with a mally liner. The bone makes a nice highlighter when you are a bit tired! Would not buy again as there are better products for the price.
