Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel Eyeliner

Jan/25/2017

After years of using a liquid pen eyeliner I discovered this and I wish I had found it before. It's so much easier, why did no one tell me?! I did have a momentary blip when I at first assumed you were meant to apply it with water and wondered why it wasn't working! If there's any other idiot out there like me, you do not apply it with water!! Just get a fine eyeliner brush and …Read more

Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Lip Pencil - What A Blast!

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2017

I have had quite a few Mac lip pencils in the past and, strangely, they all seem to have different textures according to their colour. This is one of the softer ones, which is good, because it means it doesn't dry the lips out as much as some of the others. I always use the pencil across the whole of the lip so that's quite important.

I bought this pencil to go specifically …

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Ink

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2017

This is a matt liquid lipstick that comes in a bottle with a sponge applicator. I have it in the Vivant shade, which is a warm pinky peach. I thought the ink would be a long lasting medium and it isn't bad on that front. I do find it a bit drying although I always moisturise my lips before applying any lip product as a matter of course anyway.

I can't really get on with …

Primer/ Corrector - The Body Shop - Vitamin c skin reviver

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2017

I have put this product under Primers even though The Body Shop don't market it as such, because that's clearly what it is. The packaging itself just says "For dull tired and grumpy skin". It's on the BS website under moisturisers although I hardly think it can claim to be that. I got the impression it was meant to impart one's skin with an element of radiance and …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Silver Serum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2016

I had such high hopes for this, after having read more than one article about how it was a "miracle cure" for acne. I am in my sixties and, whilst I wouldn't describe what I have as acne, I do have more than my fair share of blemishes - women of my age shouldn't still be getting zits!

Silver Serum isn't like your normal spot creams, it doesn't seem to …

Conditioner - Unlisted Brand - label.m Therapy Rejuvenating Conditioner

Nov/29/2016

I use this in conjunction with the Rejuvenating shampoo (see separate review). Both are intended for the older woman and have made quite a difference to my fine, flat hair. I use the regularly but now and again switch to something else for the odd shampoo or two as I think it's always good to give your hair a change.

That said, these Label M productss are brilliant and I will be …

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - label.m Therapy Rejuvenating Shampoo

4.0

Nov/29/2016

I've been using this shampoo for nearly a year now. It's is billed as "age-defying" - i.e. it's for the older woman. I've always had fine hair but sadly have noticed it becoming even finer and a little lifeless as I've become older. A switch of shampoo brand now and again does help but this one really does make a difference.

After I've used it …

Brows - Unlisted Brand - Wunderbrow

I am on my third tube of this. As long as you totally disregard all the advertising claims it's a very good product, better than eyebrow pencils and other liquid products I've used in the past (such as Mac which I find tends to separate after a while). I never expected it to last more than one day, and it doesn't. I always remove it with an oily eye make up remover at …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/16/2012

Not really sure about the price of this since what I am using came as a free sample (although quite a generously sized one and with original sized brush). I find it just as good as my favourite Lancome mascaras. Rarely clumps and thickens well.
No it doesn't curl but nothing has ever curled my lashes so maybe that has more to do with me than the mascaras.
Some people may find …

Concealers - Lancôme - Long-lasting Softening Concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/27/2011

A bit disappointed with this. As concealers go, I find it rather thin and lacking in coverage. It comes in a little tube and I apply it with my fingers. It doesn't matter how much I put on around those red areas around the nose, never seems to fully conceal them. Not brilliant at dark under eye circles either. I have it in beige paste 01 which was the nearest match for my fair skin. …Read more
