Liquid - Bloom Cosmetics - liquid foundation

5.0

May/09/2006

This is now my standard foundation - I love it. I even love the smell! On properly prepped skin, it gives me a wonderfully even, natural finish.

I use it with a little Laura Mercier Secret Camoflage concealer on breakouts and Bobbi Brown concealer under my eyes, as I don't like to have heavy coverage all over. I have combination/oily skin and prep my skin with a light …

Liquid - Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2006

This foundation is a very thin liquid that sank into creases on my skin I had never previously seen before. Even with prepping, (I even bought the BB moisturiser despite being completely happy with my existing moisturiser - another expensive mistake!) this made my skin even in colour, but "crepey", like skin that has been out in the sun too long. I am not yet 30 and don't …Read more

Eye Shadow - Stila - Kitten

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/03/2005

I love it! I finally succumbed and bought a pan on ebay and I have a feeling this shade will never leave my palette again. It's very shimmery, but the silvery-peach colour is so subtle and sophisticated that the effect isn't at all teenage-wannabe. I am a cool-toned, pale brunette and this makes my eyes look huge and luminous with one sweep. HG!

Lip Gloss - Stila - Banana Lipglaze

4.0

Aug/03/2005

Well, where has this been all my life? A very glossy, wet-looking MLBB shade on me, that lasts very well. I have quite pigmented lips but am cool-toned, so I worried this would be too beige on me, but the colour is pretty sheer. The crazy banana smell took a bit of getting used to, but for the effect it's worth it.

Click-pen packaging as ever, annoying but Stila seem determined …

Body Scrubs - ORIGINS - Incredible Spreadable Scrub

5.0

Jun/12/2005

I love this, it's so expensive but every so often I splash out, and it's so good I use tons and run out again within a few weeks!<br>
The ginger smell is heavenly and the abrasive particles are not too scratchy, but just scratchy enough. I really like the thick texture as well, as it makes it easy to rub into your skin thoroughly.<br>
My only two caveats would be: …

Polishes - OPI - London Bridge is Falling Brown

5.0

May/31/2005

This, for me, is the red that makes you throw away all your other red nail varnishes.<br>
It's a dried-blood red, warm but not unflattering on my cool-toned skin. Somehow it looks more sophisticated on me than the blue-toned reds I was wearing before, like Irresistable by Chanel. This is totally HG - even though it's dark, I can wear it on my hands without looking old and …

Palettes - Stila - Saks Eyeshadow/Cheek Color/Train Case Set [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/31/2005

I hate it! I bought the palette alone off eBay, so maybe the train case is SO fantastic it makes up for the rotten shadows, but even at £15 for 4 shadows & 2 blushes I feel fleeced.<br>
I love stila shadows normally and I don't know who made these - the two beige shades were rock-hard and didn't show up, the glittery grey is too dark to use as anything but a liner and …

Eye Shadow - Stila - Shadow Pots Eye Mousse in Lime

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/31/2005

Firstly, this isn't lime - it's a sea-green and really quite blue-toned. That's fine by me as I am cool-toned myself.<br>
Secondly, although the packaging is cute and study, I don't like sticking my fingers into it - I always get too much under my nail and it's a pain to apply this smoothly with a fingertip. I should probably try a cotton bud, as suggested …

Blush - Stila - forget me not convertible color

5.0

Mar/30/2005

I have found My CC!! I use Gerbera a lot for a very natural summer flush, and Orchid's ok for a very girlie look, but I just eBay for this and it is PERFECT. (Hooray for MUA reviews - totally indispensible for this sort of purchasing)

I'm very pale with dark hair, and this rosy brown colour is like instant health in a little compact. The weather where I am is distinctly …

Mascara - Pout - mascara in brown

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2005

I read the reviews on the black mascara and decided to splash out on this product in brown, and it's already a complete HG. I pretty much wear it every day already!<br>
The colour is a nice dark rich brown, the brush is wonderful and precise, and the mascara itself is very thin and liquid so you can build it up to as dramatic an effect as you require. I have certainly never …
