Limited edition vampy red shade. I was given this buy a friend, so it looks like it's now unavailable to buy. However, it's my most favourite red shade. A perfect darkish, brick red without being too orange or brown toned. A less orangey Mac Chili maybe? Anyways, stunning dabbed on for day as more of a stain or layered thickly for the evening.

I'm an NC20-25 and …

I was matched to this by a SA, and love it for a flushed shade. I'm an NC 20-25 and this has become the only blush I wear. I love it paired with Nars Laguna. A very flattering shade, reached for again and again. Doesn't clog or break me out.

My HG bronzer. Very nearly finished my first one and have a back up ready. It was my wedding present to myself:) I'm an NC20-25 and it's a lovely shade on me. If my skin is in good form I use this and concealer and look healthy, but put together. I also use it on my eyes with a black liquid liner and flick.

Curious to try it in stick form or other shades of Nars bronzer …

This is my go to mascara. I like a very definite, dramatic lash look. I want maximum volume and length, without having to do coat after coat. This manages that for me. I'm not mad about the clumping, but this is easily sorted with a q tip and Bioderma H20. I wish it was sold sealed. The price is ok, I tend to get it when it's on offer. It seems low stock in lots of places atm, I …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Prescribed Solutions Don't Be So Sensitive PostProcedure Cleanser

Aug/13/2016

I wasn't looking for a new cleanser but someone on the SCB mentioned this and I had a look at the ings, and wanted to try it. It is a very nice, gentle basic cleanser. Very concentrated so I only need to use a small amount. Lathers well, and gently cleans. I was using Simple Refreshing Gel Cleanser before but this can slightly dry my skin, at times.

I much prefer the …

Love this. Have only used it for approx. a week but so far very good. I like the type of applicator, it draws a thin line if needed and can be thickened easily. The formula is great. I've no eye sensitivity from using it, and my winged liner literally lasts all day. I'm working outside all day (rain or shine) and evenings indoors, finishing at 10/11pm all summer and it looks as …Read more

I got two of these eyeliners free on the front of a magazine when they first launched. I was excited to try them as I guess I got caught up in the hype. I've never had any success with felt tip type liners in the past and really hoped these would work. I got two colours (black and navy).

Unfortunately these performed just like every other felt tip liner I've tried. I even …

Edited 30/8/16 -
I've stopped using this as it was just too expensive for me, for a shower gel. I found that all the Dove washes are glycerin free. These often on offer somewhere for £1, and even easier to find in store. I'm happy to keep using the Dove for now. I've lowered my rating a bit as I think the price is too much, and the pump on my last bottle broke quite …

Edited 30/8/16 -
I've been using plain mineral oil (and now with polysorbate 80 added) for a while now. My skin is much happier. In the end I felt tjat this oil was slightly clogging for me. I also prefer using a pre cleanse that's fragrance free. The mineral oil is also a lot cheaper. I can't see me going back to this, but I have got my sister into this, and she loves …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

Oct/04/2013

Holy schmoly. Worst skin reaction to a product for me to date. I like La Roche Posay products in general but this is a danger zone for me. I think it must be the first ingredient Ethylhexyl Palmitate, which I've since found out can be very clogging for some acne prones. It took 2 maybe 3 uses for it to destroy my skin. I never normally react so quickly to products. Apart from that it is …Read more
