I don't know what's happened to this product but I've used it many times with great success - until a few months ago. The last three times I've used this, my highlights have been orange. And yes, thank you, I have left it on long enough. In fact, I've had to leave it on up to an hour to see if I could lift the blonde any further, to no avail. So I've probably wrecked …Read more

This is a gorgeous dusky-browny-rose pink. On close inspection there's a little too much sparkle for my liking (not frost exactly - the finish is creamy rather than frosted)... but I think this may also be what makes the colour so flattering, especially for someone of my age.

The look is slightly glossy but not as in-your-face as a lip gloss. Feels moisturising and lasts well. A …

Only bought this yesterday but wish I'd found it years ago! I've always thought my skin was too dry (and wrinkly) for a powder foundation, but this has changed my mind. Granted it's not remotely dewy and it does give a "finished", slightly "made-up" look, which I had been trying to avoid. But I think I just have to accept that dewy foundations don't give me …Read more

Well, what a surprise! I never would have bought this - my mum gave it to me after she received as a gift with purchase. To be honest, it sat in my cupboard for maybe a year before I even bothered trying it. I've used BB bronzing powder and Nars Orgasm for maybe two years, and have always quite liked the flush the Nars gives me. However I think as i get older, the depth of pink it (Orgasm) …Read more

What they said! This stuff is a miracle - not only does it make my makeup last longer, it's far better than that. It actually makes it look slightly dewy, luminous - not powdery at all which I was worried an airbrush-type product might do. I have slightly acne-prone but dry skin, and makeup often sits on top of the dryness, but also requires frequent touchups with foundation and powder. This …Read more

OK so I have to say I only just bought this two days ago, but I'm loving it so far. My skin looks luminous which is not something it would have been accused of before, the colour is perfect for me (W4), the coverage is great but not heavy looking, and seems to last all day... all that remains is to see if it eventually breaks me out. Fingers crossed! By the way I decided to try this after …Read more

I, too, really wanted to like this. The texture is great, it doesn't look too powdery. But like some others on here, I just found it too muddy. I'm going to go back to the Nars counter and try some other colours - like I say, the texture is great. I also have to say the Laguna/Orgasm combo didn't work for me either - Orgasm looks ok on me on a "pale" day, but with the …Read more

Oh I am so gutted. I absolutely love this product... but it gave me the most horrendous spots: the closest I've ever come to cystic acne. Which really is a shame because it's as everyone here describes: natural, sheer buildable colour. I loved the fact i could just sweep it on over my sunscreen (once it had been absorbed) and not look made-up as I feel I do with powder bronzer. But this …Read more

I first used this when my hair was highlighted with medium blonde and coppper highlights, and loved it. It doesn't feel like it's drying your hair out, and getting rid of the buildup from the products I use really put the bounce back into my curls. HOWEVER I've just used this after having had my hair highlighted the other day with lighter blonde highlights, and I'm really …Read more

This is my HG styling product - I used to use it as a shine/smoothing product but it's actually a little heavy for that - tends to "melt" your style a little bit! But it's fab for putting through hair before blowdrying - I find my hair is shinier, straightens more as I blowdry it so I don't need to use straighteners much, and seems to combat frizz pretty well. The only …Read more
