I am very very impressed with this brush. I got this as part a set I I was getting mainly for the smaller eye make-up brushes, but this brush is now possibly my favourite out the lot.

The shape is perfect and the bristles are so soft. At the moment, I'm using it alongside my MAC 168. I contour with the 168 and then use the ELF blush brush for the apples of my cheeks. The ELF …

Skincare - Face - Avene - Thermal Spring Water

It's brilliant.

I know there is criticism about the fact that because the water is pressurised, it's not good for your skin (free radicals) but in my case, there are too many benefits in using this to bother worrying about it.

Spraying onto my skin after a shower is like the "ahhh" feeling you get after drinking your first gulp of ice cold water on a …

I am very disappointed with this mascara.

I had kept this in my stash for a while as I have a few other mascara going at the moment. I decided to give it a try yesterday...mistake :(

I first wasn't all that impressed with it when I applied it. The brush is very long and fairly awkward. The formula didn't clump much but it made my lashes really stick together so …

Highlighters - Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat No 1

I like this a lot. I use this more as a highlighter than a concealer...I add it on top of a light concealer (at the moment Bourjois healthy mix). I like the colour, it really lightens, lifts and opens the eye. Blends in best with fingers I find.

Of course, it's overpriced for what it is, which is why I'm not giving it a perfect 5. Still, I like to use it on special …

Lotions/ Creams - Caudalie - Creme Gourmande Hand and Nail Cream

My main gripe is also the smell. I find it smells like chewable Flintstone multivitamins from my childhood. (I've never tried fruity pebbles but perhaps they use the same flavourings!)

I don't really don't find the fragrance pleasant, although it does remind me of being 6. I was hoping for something less artificial smelling.

The cream itself is good …

Eyeliner - Bourjois - Liner Feutre - 11 Noir

Feb/12/2011

This eyeliner pen a bit of a waste of money. Although it's a rather clever idea and appears to save you a bit of time and fuss, you're still much better off getting a regular gel or liquid liner on all of those aspects.

So far, it's like using a really bad pen that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. When it works, it's good (not great). The tip is precise …

Cleansers - NUXE - Reve de Miel Face Gentle Cleansing Gel

Jan/11/2011

It's a good cleanser, leaves skin rather soft without drying it out too much. It's not fantastic, but it's good.

But, I really don't like the smell of it. I usually don't mind scented products but the fragrance in this cleanser is way too strong. Sweet baby powder, very strong sweet baby powder.

I'll tough this bottle out but will not purchase …

Moisturizers - Mario Badescu - Seaweed Night Cream

I really like this cream - so far so good. I have fairly dry and tight skin so, for me, it's not too oily and sinks in fast. And, it doesn't sink in so fast that you feel like you've put on anything in the first place (which I get with a lot of moisturisers).

This works great with the glyco toner before and a spray of thermal water to help it sink in. My skin has never …

I've only been trying this for a couple of weeks but wanted to review anyway - I'll edit as I go. Because I really really like this.

I've had acne since I'm 13 and have always struggled to have a clear skin. I've had different treatments from the dermatologist, but nothing has really worked. My skin is also rather sensitive and tight so stronger cleansers and …

Treatments (Eye) - Mario Badescu - Olive Eye Cream

Dec/14/2010

I really like this cream - it's exactly what I was looking for. A simple hydrating eye cream. I'll admit, it's like putting lip balm on your eyes. But this was a plus for me in a way - my skin is really dry and tight and this helps hydrate and soften for longer than 5 minutes.

However, it's kind of making my eyes sting. I'm really disappointed. My eyes feels a …
