I wanted to believe that this would be great, and that the brush wasn't just a gimmick, but sadly this is a bust for me. After maybe 3 coats this looks decent, but within seconds the curl drops and my lashes seem to stick together in an unflattering way. My lashes remain soft but as a result it feels like it's not totally dried on them.

It's rare that I'm wowed by …

This went mouldy on me VERY quickly so I had to toss it - a little goes a long way so the pot was almost full. I live in a cold country and this was stored correctly and not even used often. The brand are very clever with putting an expiry date of just 6 months on the jar - there’s no way that ANYONE can use a full jar in that time, so you’re either using expired product or tossing a half full …Read more

I got this as a free gift with another product (Skinny Tan do great deals if you buy directly from them), and I was interested to try this formula, as it’s the one that is consistently worst reviewed on YouTube, Boots, Superdrug, blogs etc. I can see why.

I have the extra dark shade. It’s SORT of dark - it seems to stick on my arms better than the rest of my body …

Bought this because of the positive reviews on MUA, which seldom steer me wrong - but this was one of those times. I HATE this powder - it's heavy and makes my face look totally flat. It lays on the skin and looks obvious rather than buffing in beautifully like the MAC care blend or mineralise powders I was using previously, and it's not even great at oil control like MAC Blot. Should …Read more

Honestly, I really dislike this foundation. Previously I was a big fan of Guerlain's foundations, so bought this untried when it was first released as it sounded exactly what I'd like (light coverage and glow) - however this is much thicker and tackier than I expected. The colour match isn't great (they only have 3 shades, which is crazy in today's more inclusive times) and 02 …Read more

Sunscreen - COOLA - Mineral Face Lotion SPF 20 (Unscented)

This was pretty rubbish to be honest - not moisturing enough and leaves a crazy white cast that won’t blend out. I had a sample from a beauty box and will be glad to use it up and move on. It hasn’t been hugely sunny so I can’t comment on the SPF properties but nothing is better than the Japanese Biore gel for facial SPF.

I like Aveeno but don’t love this. The lotion is so thick that it clogged up the pump and it leaves a sticky feeling on my body - today the lotion was pilling on my legs as it didn’t fully absorb in 4 hours! There are definitely better body moisturisers out there.

This is actually a much better mascara than I was expecting. I received it in a beauty box, as this isn’t a brand that interests me (I’m more into super high end) but decided to give it a try. It lengthened and separated my lashes well, helped them hold a curl and thickened slightly after a few coats. I found it very buildable, and great for a daytime or more casual evening look. I am always into …Read more

This is a real ‘meh’ product. It doesn’t break me out or strip my skin, which is a bonus, but it doesn’t really DO anything positive for my skin either. And it’s a nightmare to get out of the tube when you’re nearing the end of the product. I had a sample tube, but am really glad not to have been stuck with a full size of this. I’m really having to force myself to use the amount I have!

Dec/22/2016

This product seems to be one of those love it or hate it things - I bought it as a result of all the raves on here, but sadly I am firmly in the 'hate it' camp.

Firstly - I hate the synthetic orange smell (it's like calcium tablets I had to take as a kid) - it would be SO much nicer if it smelled of honey instead, as the name suggests.

Secondly - I find the …
