Eyeliner - Bourjois - Khol & Contour Eyeliner Pencil

5.0

Sep/22/2013

I love this stuff. I'm usually totally loyal to Chanel eyeliner, but I bought this on a makeup emergency (came in wearing light makeup on staff photo day) - and am now hooked.

It goes on smooth and lasts for hours. I put it on at 7 in the morning, did a full day at work and a Pilates class at night, and it still looked good when I got home.

I have (this sounds …

Polishes - Collection - Lasting Gel Colour

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/22/2013

I usually avoid Collection 2000 products, because I don't feel that they're especially good quality. However, I saw a shade of nail polish that I wanted - 'Antique Rose' - and, since it was reduced (down to £2.50 from £3.99), decided to give them another go and try the polish.

The nail polish goes on nicely. It's a broad brush, which lets you get a nice …

Moisturizers - Boots - Botanics Night Moisture Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/26/2012

My skin: combination, seb derm, insanely reactive.

I noticed my skin was starting to feel a bit dry first thing, and was looking a little blotchy. I've tried night creams before to try and keep the dreaded fine lines away - but they've always been too rich/scented and broke me out in bumps and pimples. (Ponds and Nivea Q10 were particularly bad for me)

I decided …

Eye Shadow - Superdrug - 2True True Colour Eyeshadow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2011

I was really surprised by the quality of this product. Eyeshadow usually drives me crazy because it creases so fast - but this stuff lasts without creases forever! I got up at 7am, put my makeup on, and it was still crease-free when I got in at 8pm, after a full day at work and a pilates class.

The only drawback I can see is that the colour range is a little limited. My main colour …

Fragrances - Versace - Baby Rose Jeans

Dec/31/2010

I wore this as a teenager, and after finding my almost empty bottle recently will be buying it again!

I know it's not fashionable, and it's a simple sweet scent for a teenage girl - but it's gorgeous. The violet scent is lovely, and the little bergamot note gives it a citrussy spark and stops it from being sickly. A good-mood scent.

Sweet in every sense of …

Fragrances - Nina Ricci - L'Air du Temps

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2010

I really love L'Air du Temps. It's an elegant scent with a hint of something different to it - I wouldn't describe it simply as floral.

As other reviewers have commmented, it has not been especially well-served by reformulation. Although I still wear and enjoy L'Air du Temps, it has lost some complexity and edge through the years.

A softer version of …

Fragrances - Caron Paris - Nocturnes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2010

I bought this unsniffed based on the reviews I read here.

Nocturnes is a smooth, serene scent. Other reviewers have listed the notes in more detail. I primarily smell roses and (in a good way!) lemon pledge.

I like Nocturnes. I've read it described as 'ladylike' and 'well-balanced'. You won't find edgy here - but it is a lovely perfume.

Fragrances - Lancaster - Covet Pure Bloom Sarah Jessica Parker

3.0

Dec/31/2010

Notes: Pikoke Indian flower, coconut water, tuberose, jasmine, mandarin orange, plum, musk, amber, sandalwood and orris

I was given this product as a gift last Christmas.

It's not a scent I would usually have chosen, as I don't tend to go for celebrity perfumes. It is classed as a floral, fuity scent with an 'exotic' or 'tropical' edge. …

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - White Linen Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/26/2010

Fabulously sharp and crisp, this is one of my favourite perfumes - although I can equally understand why so many reviewers dislike it.

White Linen is laceratingly aldehydic and green - my favourite notes. If you do not like these notes, then you will hate it. Even if you do like these notes, it still might be too much. Do not buy this unsniffed. It is not a 'meh' …
