Skincare - Body - The Body Shop - Sweet Lemon body butter

Different people certainly seem to experience smell differently!

I love this stuff. It smells of real, fresh lemons, and the smell stays true. Nothing sickly or cloying on my skin.

It moisturises my heels better than pure Shea butter (weird eh?) and seems to keep my feet and legs glossy for 24 hrs. It is too rich for my hands.

I've only given it 4 stars …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - 24 Hour SuperStay 24 2-Step Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2012

I love lip stains - I've been using Lip Ink for about a year, and my only criticism is the way that some colours seem to change colour with my lip chemistry. Anyway, I thought I would give this 24 hr stuff a try, because the colour range appealed, and... It is fantastic! No colour change and brilliant lasting time.

I put it on at 8am and go to work. Lunch, cups of tea, snacks …

I can't help noticing that the negative reviews for this product are all by people too young to benefit from it!



My mother uses this. She has just hit 80. It knocks about 15 years off, and virtually eradicates the crepiness. She loves it, and I love how it increases her confidence.



I will probably get some in a year or two, when the lines …

Blush - Laura Geller New York - Tartufo

This is the blush I wear nearly every day.

Its a beautiful, soft, healthy colour (I have very fair yellow toned skin which gets overwhelmed with bright or strong colours). This makes me look HEALTHY, and I can't overload it, the colour is so natural looking that I can wear it on a no makeup day. Love it.

I'll be heart broken when I finish the pan!

Lips - Lip Ink - Lip Ink

Feb/11/2012

I've been using Lip Inks for about three months now, and they have become my lipstick of choice. I love the fact that I can apply at 7.30am and arrive home at 6pm with my lips still looking exactly the same. During the day I apply the Shine gloss maybe 5 times, without a mirror. It is wonderful to know that my lips look good no matter where I am, and no matter what I have been eating or …Read more

Fragrances - Illamasqua - Freak

Feb/11/2012

I was bought this as a present by my partner, who loves the scent - and luckily it stays fairly true on me. We both like it, but there is absolutely NOTHING freakish about it.

(On me) it is a softish, slightly sweet, slightly woodsy floral. Nothing dark, purplish, goth or dangerous about it at all. I am spraying it on at breakfast time and use about 6 squirts, 2 to wrists, 1 to hair …

Oct/24/2011

I love these serums. After I bought the first one I wore nothing else for weeks, they are so comfortable and the condition of my lips definitely improved.

I now have two - Rosewood (740) and this one. They are my Go To lipsticks. The packaging makes them possible to apply without a mirror, and I can slip them into a pocket on my bag and pull them out without the usual rummaging and …

My perfect red.


I have been looking for the perfect red shade for 20 years (I kid you not). Always they were either too bright, too blue, too orange, too dark... you get the picture?


Anyway, I was recently colour analysed as a Soft Autumn (email me if you want more details, it is something that I recommend to anyone). Soft Autumns have skintones that look their …

Powder - Laura Geller New York - Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation

Aug/10/2011

I have been waiting for the Porcelain BnB for years, and it just hit the UK QVC, so I ordered.

After trying the fair and regular shades, this was a delight - actually fair enough for my skin!!! Actually (and incredibly) it is slightly too fair and too pink, because I have fairly warm/yellow toned skin.

So I am able to swirl my brush first in the porcelain, then in the …

Stick - Laura Geller New York - Real Deal Foundation SPF 15

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2011

Because I have very oily skin, I am always looking for something which will deal with the oil slick. My makeup needs to be well attached to my face so that multiple blottings throughout the day remove the oil and leave the makeup behind.

This product did NOT help the situation.

I used it with the Real Deal primer stick, and the effect, by lunch, was of a face devoid of …
