I love this product and the colour. I have never used a cream eyeshadow before but after my eye lift I decided to try something new. I use this colour as my all over eye base before adding my smokey brown shadow. It’s fab the colour is quite subtle and Matte but it’s staying power is phenomenal and it doesn’t crease. I just scrape a little off the top of the pot with my nail and rub it on my hand …Read more

Amazing piece of kit I love it.....Any one I knew that owned one of these hairdryers loved them and I did when my hair when my hairdresser used it. My reason for buying was that I wash and dry my hair every day and the the fact that the temperature is continually regulated means the dryer won’t get too hot so in theory should limit damage to my coloured hair. I treated myself with Christmas money …Read more

I have been a die hard Double Wear girl for at least 15 years I’ve tried others but always go back to DW in ivory beige. That was until I tried Mac Pro longwear foundation in NW 22.....I was given this as freebie from a friend and when I looked at the bottle I thought it would be too dark I was pleasantly surprised. This foundation glides on beautifully gives great coverage and is buildable the …Read more

I wear double wear foundation which is great coverage but very matte. Sometimes I fancy a bit of a dewy look or to not look so matte. I use all the highlighters that are on the market and they are all quite good. I bought the strobe at the airport as an ad hoc purchase and so far I have tried it all over my face like a face cream then put my foundation over the top it was ok but I felt a bit pale …Read more

I am unlucky enough to be plagued with dark circles all my life and have tried every concealer from double wear to Bobbi brown corrector to benefit boing. I had also tried the Nars cream concealor but it just didn't have enough coverage and the others have either been too oily or too drying. I had gone to purchase benefit boing but there was no one at the counter so I ended up chatting to …Read more

I wear double wear foundation and usually apply with a brush but decided to try the beatyblendee I got the original pink one and followed the instruction of wetting it wringing it and using it and yes my foundation was nice but it definitely didn't give as much coverage and I was using more foundation than I normally do. It is also quite time consuming to put on. I also noticed that it …Read more

Possibly the worst self tanner I have used. I am a veteran self tanner and use the Sienna X mouse with no problems at all and decided to try the one hour tan. It is very watery it goes on ok but left me patchy and with a real orange tinge. It washes of terribly leaving you with those unsightly patches that look like a skin condition and after a week of scrubbing I still have orange patches on my …Read more
