It's such a shame that when you find a product that changes your life, its only for a limited time! Ok, so I'm going a bit overboard but I've been searching for the perfect shade of violet my whole adult life. I wasn't even looking for the elusive shade when I bought this on a whim. I had no idea it would enhance my uneven lips. Uneven in colour and shape, but I've had so …Read more

For subtle natural lashes, I love this mascara. The brush is a good size although I do have to careful applying it on my lower lashes but it gives great definition and doesn't clump and just makes my eyes look open. The formula is lovely and glossy but the only con is that it takes a little while to dry, but for £4.99 it's a great mascara at a great price.

I gave this mascara a 3 for price because although £12 is not hugely expensive, for a chemist/drugstore brand, I think it is a lot of money when the average price is around £6.
The brush is lovely, I tried it with other mascara formulas and it really coats the lashes and gets between them but I really don't like the formula, it is too thick and almost dry, after 3 coats it barely made …

I bought this after a make over and I love it, it has fast become my favorite shade. I tend not to use bright colours on my lips so if you like pinky nudey shades this is fab. It tastes lovely too, my only complaint is that you have to reapply a few times as it has the consistency of a gloss. It wasn't cheap but it is such a versatile colour I will be sure to buy it again.

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Refined Golden

I was so looking forward to using this bronzer after trying it out in the store on my hand (big mistake, the lighting is always dull in department stores!). I thought I would give it a go as other mac bronzers have always been great shades and excellent value for money but I will NEVER buy this shade again. The colour looks great in the compact but went on a really dull muddy shade, and no matter …Read more

Although not strictly a bronzer, this is about as perfect to a bronzer that I can imagine. It may look orange and pink in the compact but it goes on like a dream. it gives a lovely soft subtle shimmer with the two colours mixed it looks like a day away in the sun, not too bronzed or chalky or too matte. I love this, my only wish is that is wasn't limited edition.

Cleansers - CLARINS - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Plant Extracts [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/24/2009

I have combination skin that likes to flare up, mainly on special events like wedding photos so I thought I would give this cleanser a go in place of my usual £3.99 high strength paint stripper. The first thing that struck was the divine smell and then the soft feel of the cleanser. A small amount is all that is required, and for around £13 this should last 2-3 months so it is good value. I …Read more

I thought I would give this a try as I was once again led to believe by way of a magazine review that this The must have mascara. However, I am glad it was on offer because I would never buy it again. I don't know where to start, the brush was awful, after nearly stabbing myself in the eye a few times I managed to get some on my eyelashes allbeit in huge clump. The only good thing I can say …Read more

Jul/17/2009

I have lusted after this product for so long, after weighing up the costs I decided to treat myself and I have no regrets. The tube itself is chunky but compact enough to keep in your handbag or if you are flying in your restricted allowance. The blush is pure luxury, a beautiful soft bronzy gold with a shimmer that makes you look lit from within. The blush is very versatile and can be used …Read more

Concealers - By Terry - Touche Veloutee Highlighting Concealer

Jul/17/2009

I had really high hopes for this concealer as it was recommended to me because I don't have bags under my eyes, I have suitcases (I am a shift worker). The packing itself is pretty cool, the same pump-pen idea as YSL's Touche Eclat but with a nice big brush. One pump is more than enough for both eyes, but I found I had to layer it a few times and it started to look like very obvious. If …Read more
