Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara

I have yet to find a single benefit product which has impressed me. It’s just bog standard make up in expensive gimmicky packaging.
This is just like any other black mascara. The brush is like a normal mascara brush. It makes your eyelashes black and that’s it.
I won’t buy anything from this brand again

This is the third NXY foundation formulation I’ve tried and I won’t purchase another one. For a high street brand their products are becoming more and more pricey. For this you receive only 20ml making the price ml for ml almost comparable with higher end brands such as Clinique and Ester Lauder.

The product is very liquidy , feels like a silicone base with pigment. It sticks to every …

I don’t understand the hype. I’ve had this twice in special value kits and I have way better drug store mascara’s
I don’t find it dark enough it dries almost grey
It’s too wet so there is no curl or lift
It doesn’t have fibres so it doesn’t build volume it just clumps if you layer it
I don’t like it

I hate the packaging! I love the fragrance. My mum bought me this for my wedding day because I couldn’t find anything that would last and smell fresh and clean but feminine. I receive compliments everyday and this is the only perfume I’ve worn were men stop and ask me what it is. One of my bosses even bought it for his wife he liked it so much :0)

Eyeliner - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner

Literally THE worst eyeliner I've ever had. It crumbles during application, it continues to dispense when you have finished and so wastes huge amounts of product, it's fiddly to apply, it doesn't go on smooth. Massive waste of money. Illamasqua, mac, even Collection and Avon do better .

Firstly I don't like the packaging- it looks like it's from Avon or a cheaper end drugstore brand. That being said the actual product is excellent. I have very straight lashes, this is the only product to hold a curl all day and I've tried 30+ mascaras. It has fibres for added length and thickness and I have had no irritation on my contact lenses. It hasn't ever smudged or …Read more

BB Cream - Lioele - Dollish Veil Vita BB Make Up Base SPF 25 PA++ (purple)

I use this instead of foundation when my skin looks clear and as a primer under foundation when I need more coverage. It's excellent at maintaining a smooth soft, matte base, but it's not drying at all and it doesn't clung to dry patches. My foundation lasts twice as long wearing this underneath and looks brighter and more true to colour. I am very pale and find this a great match …Read more

I have very dry skin. I prep first with moisturiser , a little face oil and primer. It's a medium coverage no where close to full. It evens out redness and covers minor blemishes. It doesn't cover spots or dark circles. Please get colour matched at a counter if you can it makes all the difference. It applies evenly and wears off evenly. It doesn't go patchy on me. Like ALL …Read more
