I have tried so many foundations lately in an attempt to find the colour and texture which suits me. I have very fair but freckly skin and most foundations are simply too yellow for me and create a 'mask' effect. I so wanted to love Vitalumiere by Chanel but it oxidised and didn't last too long. Doublewear by EL is my staple and the new lighter version is a favourite also. I asked …Read more

I never liked this fragrance in the past! I sprayed it recently on a trip to Boots where I often try something that I have never tried before and for some reason this caught my eye. I was pleasantly surprised and will agree with another reviewer that it is what I wish Chanel 5 was. It is fresh and not cloying. Staying power is good and it has retained it's freshness yet at the same time …Read more

Wanting something lighter than my usual doublewear for Summer I discovered this last week. It gives just enough coverage for the warmer weather and applies well with both brush and fingers. I opted for the lightest shade and it suits perfectly, I would usually wear cool bone in Doublewear. I put a light dusting of powder over the top and it doesn't look too matte as other reviewers have …Read more

Rated highly by Lisa Eldridge I rushed out to buy it and I'm glad I did. It is a rich peachy nude colour, very moisturising. had to reapply a lot during the day though! Cheap as chips too.

I have tried the Dr. Jart BB cream and whilst I liked the finish and texture of that cream I did not like the colour. I have fair, freckled skin and find it incredibly hard to find the right colour in any foundation or tinted moisturiser. I received a sample of this and usually I would walk past a rimmel counter but this morning I was in a hurry and didn't have time for a full make up so I …Read more

I was impressed overall with the the SA at Selfridges in Birmingham and very impressed with her make up and her overall knowledge about the products. I am a primer junkie - having tried so many and always on the look out for the HG product. The first problem I noticed was that my foundation changed to an orange colour and took about 5 minutes to tone down again! Very odd and slightly …Read more

My skin colour seems to have changed as I get older and I have struggled to find a foundation colour which suits me. I have very pale skin with some freckles, which can make it harder. I like full coverage but not a mask like effect. I tried Bone, which was a little light and Cool bone which is perfect. I don't wear it every day as I don't always need the coverage but the days I do wear …Read more

This is a new range from a very clever lady who worked for Lancome and also Origins. She knows a thing or two about skincare and her product range is amazing. The serum is amazing and leaves the skin feeling so soft and smooth. Her cleansing balm is to die for too.

I am not a fan of balm type cleansers preferring rich creamy ones (Elemis) but I gave this a go after watching Emma on QVC and it came as part of a set. It's all I use now. I never have to use toner afterwards and it removes all my make up and eye make up. I also mix it with the seeds and use it as a mask. I have tried all of Emma's products now and I am very happy with them. I have had …Read more

I bought this having watched a demo on QVC. I applied it regularly as Lulu recommended, even over my make up. I didn't notice any major improvements but what put me off was the fact that the product congealed in the pot and I had to throw it out. I wrote directly to Lulu's website but never had a reply! Unimpressed.
