Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Sea Buckthorn Oil

4.0

Nov/20/2018

I wanted to write a quick review to warn other users that this stuff is ORANGE. I just bought a bottle of this. I got the SBT kernel oil, this is different from the pulp oil. The pulp oil is meant to be a lot darker abd nutrient packed (and more expensive).

For the record I bought organic, cold pressed Sea Buckthorn Oil from NHR organic oils. Their website is worth checking out. For …

Dec/17/2016

This topcoat is okay but I will not repurchase for the following reasons:

Cons
Doesn't self level well
Takes ages to dry
Needs to be applied over totally dry polish otherwise you get terrible bubbling
Dulls and dings within a day or two, making your manicure look raggedy

Pros
Has a nice hard, smooth finish when it finally dries
Reduces tip …

I think I have finally figured out how to use this mascara. Unless they've changed the formula, because this stuff used to be hell on my lashes.

The first time I tried this it was in a dept store. I was with a friend who was getting a colour match and I thought why not. The SA *piled* it on my top lashes. I remember looking in the hand mirror she passed me and thinking. what. …

Polishes - Nails Inc. - All Products

Oct/10/2016

I remember when nails inc bars started popping up all over London. Reviews and promos for their polishes and treatments were in all the glossy magazines, their chic London names felt very modern and edgy. So London.

Through the help of Tx Maxx I have acquired quite a few of their polishes over their years. I find them to be really hit and miss. And definitely not worth the full price …

*cackles*

I've tried umpteen black eyeliners, from every major make up brand, and.. some less major ones (hello poundland)

I've only used the black one, but the other reviews here make me want to try the other colours.

The black is basically a perfect no nonsense black eyeliner. It goes on black, (not grey, not greasy). A nice, slightly powdery, matte …

Polishes - Color Club - Age of Aquarius

I love this colour. As others have said it is perfect for summer.

The colour and finish looks great in full sun; not thick and 'nail polishy' just bright and clean. It is a green, minty teal. Like a glowy version of the Tiffany & co green. Indoors and in lower light it gets more opaque and seems almost luminous.

It's a creme, so for nail noobs like me; it …

My goodness me I love these.

I have lots of brushes so I've been on a brush no buy for a few years. Although I have so many, I have never found a really fluffly 'all over' e/s brush that I really love. I spotted the one in this kit and wanted it immediately.

I held out, thinking that I have so many already... I don't need it. I picked it up and almost …

This is a review for Mavala 'Blue mint'

I love it.

It is cool baby blue with a barely-there pearl microshimmer. One coats looks great, but the finish can be a little streaky. I've noticed that it looks very streaked when you apply, but after a few seconds of drying the streaks even out. Keep this in mind, before I realised this I spent ages trying to get it …
