Nothing else works like this!

I've had an oily T-Zone for as long as I can remember and, depending on my health and hormones (and mystery influences) it varies overnight from pretty icky to "you could fry chips on my nose". So - given 8 hours in bed and I can see beads of grease - its no wonder any makeup I try looks like a slick by midday.

This is one of …

I got this really cheap - I would have never paid even a fraction of the full price for it.
I like it, to be honest I like it alot, however I am never going to pay anything verging on full price - Its a crazy price for a cream of any sort!

I generally find eye creams to be too greasy, and eye gels to be too drying and flaky but this was a great in between. Its probably the nicest …

OK but not great.

Its tube mascara so for me its always going to be better than the alternatives. However its - for me - by far not the best tube mascara I've found.

I do prefer my mascara quite dry and not too blobby and I found this - in comparison to my usual Mirenesse - wet and rather messy. I was dissapointed as the blue colour was lovely and its great to find …

Oh hell what a mess.

To be fair I like my mascara fairly minimal and dryish.

I am very fidgetty about blobs so I'd rather have a whisp of colour than anything more dramatic if its going to include bitty bits or fibry bits, or actually bits of any sort!
Also I can put on what is supposedly waterproof mascara or liner and look like I've spent hours howling …

Misc Beauty Tools - Mirenesse - Pebblesonic

Nov/08/2015

Like the previous reviewer I had tried a brush cleanser and used it for a while but I never really loved it. I think it probably cleaned my rather greasy T-zone more thoroughly than the microfibre cloths I normally use, but it did feel rough (even the soft brush) and I always wondered how clean it really was.

The pebblesonic is really lovely in terms of cleanliness - I never have any …

I am uber greasy and have tried every variety of blotting paper - powdered and unpowdered - over the years.

Most of them work to some degree but the powdered ones tend to be the wrong colour and the unpowdered are so thin & flimsy that it takes several just for my nose, oh & they feel a bit like the toilet paper you used to get in schools and public loos (only those as old as …

I have short hair that is now bleached & dyed so it isn't as floppy as it is naturally, but the minute the roots start to grow out it flops.
This stuff does a pretty good job of making it stand up - at least for a while. Its not as effective as some of the powder products but it is far easier to apply in a spray.

The one thing I wish is that it was available in a …

Shampoo - Matrix - Total Results Amplify Volume Shampoo

This is pretty good stuff on my rather limp and coloured hair.
Its not the most volumising, but those that are better at giving me more body tend to strip the colour out, whilst those that are designed to keep colour in are always far too moisturising so make me really flat & greasy.
This is a good compromise at a reasonable price, and I even like the smell!

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional Face Primer

Thank goodness I tried a sample! This made me look greasier, and made my foundation slip off my nose even more than it does on bare skin! It does fill the pores but then the grease sort of oozes out round it (sorry - yukky I know) and I end up with little dewdrops of grease. Honestly totally horrid on me.

I had a free sample of this in a tiny foil pack from the US and loved it - it made my nose less shiny & my pores less noticeable. So I thought a full size tube from Debenhams in the UK. Can it be a different product? Have they changed the formulation? The sample was white and had a dryish texture, the tube is more skin coloured and slipperier - and more importantly really does very little …Read more
