I love this blush, in fact every product I have tried from Illamasqua is right up there in terms of quality, pigmentation and colour.
It's a gorgeous bright, matt pinky rose colour and applies really beautifully straight over foundation and over powder.
I like to go a bit over the top with blush and I only need 1 brush worth for each cheek, if you prefer a subtle look then …

I have been using this daily for almost 6 months and I love it. It has quite light coverage but is longer lasting with powder. It feels weightless and moisturising, as contains a moisturising serum as well. I do think it has a blurring effect on my wrinkles when I wear it and I have had a noticeable lack of break outs in the last 6 months.
The pump packaging is excellent and 1 pump is …

YES YES YES!!
This is the best home hair dye I have used for years. I used blue black, which is not overly blue, just a blue tinge in bright sunlight.

While this sounds bad that I like it, it leaves dye on my scalp because it's so super strong. I thought they stopped making dyes like this when I was a teenager... so watch out if you get some on your skin. Clinique make up …

If I use a tiny pea sized bit it works much better than using a larger amount. Sinks in quite well and tends to last til the afternoon The fragrance is a bit strong for me though; it smells fruity and sweet like a teenager's perfume which puts me off a bit.

How can I not have reviewed this before?!
LOVE this. Best lipbalm I have ever used (and am currently alternating with creme de la mer lipbalm which I think isn't as good... but comes close ;)
Is kind of a thick-ish opaque white stick which goes on clear and smells just like the hand cream, not overly strong though.
Hydrates well and I rarely get dry flaky lips these days. If …

This is the one I keep going back to for my night cream. Have tried many other retinol night creams but this is the one that doesn't break me out and leaves my skin feeling great in the morning. It's not too heavy, but too heavy for a day cream imo.
Not sure that it provides any amazing effects in terms of minimizing wrinkles, but I do notice that my sleep creases seem less …

In agreement with other comments - whether it actually provides any extra volume is hard to tell, as I have been using Aveda Abundance Potion as well.
Used in conjunction with the conditioner it feels like a luxurious treat, and smells quite good. A little goes an extremely long way, and I alternate with Pantene Clarifying shampoo and Pantene conditioner for dry, damaged hair …

I'm usually really picky about the size of my mascara brush - the flexible rubber ones don't work for me and the massive brushes don't either. I'm forever searching for an amazing mascara and thought I'd take a break from Lancome Hypnose which is pretty close to my HG.
First thing is, this is a MASSIVE brush. However, this did a reasonable job of lengthening my …
