It's not a terrible brush but I'm replacing it after a few weeks as it's not really for me.

Pros:
- Soft bristles
- Sturdy handle
- Good price

Cons:
- For the amount of product it picks up it doesn't deposit much
- It's too big as a blush brush for me but I'd consider it for my setting powder
- Inexplicably when …

Hair Color - Garnier - Olia Brilliant Color

Jun/05/2014

I bought this product when it was on offer to give it a try. Application was about as standard as any cream-dye: messy in general but that might just be me (this is why I prefer foam dyes).

I loved the colour (Deep Red 4.6) and the no-ammonia formula was certainly appealing. However I would not buy this again because the dye has and continues to run every time I wash my hair, even …

I want to love this. I really do. I had put off trying it for a long time because I know how finicky it can be, but my HG tc (Diamont) was playing up so I thought I'd give SV a try.

Pros:
Application is a breeze, so smooth.
Drying time second to none
Finish (if you can get it right) is the smoothest and glassiest of any tc I have …

I have a love-hate relationship with this polish. One the one hand - I LOVE the colour. Ugh, it's a beautiful dark blue/teal micro-glittery love machine. It wears really well and is one of those don't-get-distracted-while-driving colours.

HOWEVER there are downsides.
1) The brush - horrendous, wide, fat, uneven. The stem of the brush is AS WIDE as the neck of the …

This polish is a black jelly base with fuchsia micro and hex glitter. It's gorgeous and semi-dupey to DL Bad Romance but much cheaper. I recommend a base colour underneath just to avoid streakiness in the black base which can still be present even after 3 coats by itself - but I found that the underwear just gave the black base a little depth rather than changing it entirely, which was …Read more

Silver glitter in a sheer blue jelly base. Great glitter but I personally found it wasn't as dark as I had hoped - looks great layered over a dark blue creme though. Not too gritty but not 100% smooth either.

Somewhere between a jelly and a creme (a "pudding" as someone has already coined the term!) this is a really beautiful shiny blue colour which is very flattering. Great formula but probably wants 3 coats for full opacity with no bald spots.

This polish is sooooo beautiful. It's a jelly red-purple base (very dark) with silver and blue microglitter and red/green duochrome flakies. The base is a tad sheer so I recommend one cost of a base colour, however it does build up to mostly opaque in 3 coats.

It's also worth noting that my nails feel like adamantium with this polish on (plus tc/bc). Some people have …

Perfect application and formula - probably due to not being B3F - this polish goes on smooth and is very close to being a one-coater. Dries to a gloriously shiny finish and wears very well. This is a green-based grey and is a perfect fall colour.
