I have bought this lip gloss many times. The first time I bought it, I was hoping it would give my lips a lovely red shimmer... it did... but VERY subtly. I find myself trying to apply LOTS of it, to try to get more of the red shimmer on my lips. My young daughter is happy about that, because she can use it too- its so subtle that she can use it without looking "made up", so shes …Read more

Love love love this product. Love it. Used it for years, even as a teenager, and suddenly noticed it was getting harder and harder to find, so started using the next best thing (Garnier BB cream- medium) This product is so easy to use, just rub into the palm of your hands and smooth onto your face and neck for an instant healthy glow. I prefer the beige, as I tried the honey colour once and it …Read more

I use the medium BB cream. I love this product! So surprised to see so many negative reviews about this. I have normal skin, with some dark pigmentation around my cheek/eye area. I put my BB cream on every morning, so easy- just rub it in the palms of my hands and smooth it onto my face. It gives me an instant glow and lasts the whole day. No smell, no "thick" sticky feeling. Just a …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Pink Truffle [DISCONTINUED]

A lovely little burst of moisturising colour! Love this lippy. I have quite olive skin, and this is a very subtle, light colour on me, but I find that on the days when I want a slightly darker shade, I use a darker lippy for the outline of my lips and fill them in with my Pink Truffle lip butter :-) Lovely. Very moisturising, feels nice on my lips. My only compaint (for want of a better word) is …Read more

I am reviewing Clairol Nice n Easy, 129G, Rich Medium Golden Brown. This colour is beautiful. Natural, shiny, just lovely. I used this colour on my already brown hair, to liven it up a little and get rid of my light ends. Leaves my hair feeling soft, silky, smooth & looking professionally coloured. Have bought it many times before (love its affordability) and will continue going back to this …Read more

Fragrances - KENZO - Flower Eau de Parfum Spray

Jul/28/2013

Very light, very ''pretty'', yet also quite strong. I absolutely LOVE the tall, skinny bottle with the flower on the glass. Women tend to associate different fragrances with certain things, and my mother-in-law wears Flower by Kenzo quite a lot, so this alone would put me off :-) I wouldn't buy a bottle of this frangrance, because I don't like the 'light yet …Read more

When I said to the fragrance counter lady that I was looking for something 'light', she immediately led me to this one... Don't like this one. She was right, it is light, I just didn't fall in love with the smell. This would be something I'd consider as a gift idea for my teenage niece, as it seems like a 'young girl' kind of perfume :-)

I don't own this perfume, but my mum has it as its one of her faves. Not too keen on this one... very powdery smell, which I would think would be a good thing, but like many other Chanel perfumes, it is OH SO STRONG!!! I never like a perfume that over-powers a whole ROOM (perfect example, Chanel Mademoiselle! Urgh!!!) Maybe this one would be best dabbed on, rather than sprayed on, as a …Read more

This was the first bottle of perfume my mum ever bought me as a teenager :-) And I still love it! Not sweet (like SO many others are!) And for such an affordable price, has good staying power. I haven't purchased this perfume for years, but think its high time I call my Avon lady :-) Beautiful.

This is a beautiful fragrance. I agree with what a lot of others have said in their reviews, in regards to perhaps dabbing this one on rather than spraying, as it is quite a strong smell. Lovely though. Not an "old lady" smell by any means, but don't think this ones suited for young girls either... A lovely, sophisticated and mature fragrance.
