Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Astral Cream Face & Body Moisturizer

I got a sample of this in a Beauty Box and was initially quite dismissive of it. In fact it sat sad, unopened and unloved for a couple of months before I decided to open it. It's got to be popular for a reason and Joanna Lumley wouldn't be advertising it without reason. Plus k was getting desperate for a rich moisturising lotion with the weather turning colder and my skin getting …Read more

BB Cream - Garnier - Ambre Solaire BB Cream SPF 50 for Very Fair Skin

Dec/28/2015

This was anything but 'fair' or 'light' or however it was described on the packaging! I thought I had found the answer to my prayers - a complete sunscreen with a touch of makeup for fair skin. It might be a good sunblock but it is far too dark plus someone commented that my skin looked plasticky! It might suit someone with a darker complexion than me so I'm back to the …Read more

At least I am not the only person to like this product - in fact love it! I am really shocked to see the negative reviews and scores and I probably would not have bought this product if I had seen these reviews. Oh well, here are some of the things I like about the product.

1) it is cheap. The Urban Decay primers are lovely but I can buy about four of these for the price of one of …

I bought this with a little trepidation after hearing some pretty negative reviews about the product. Whilst these eye shadows may not be in the same league as the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I am really impressed by this little collection of neutral eyeshadows that should suit most people in terms of budget, quality and range of shades.

A lot of thought has been put into the shades …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

4.0

Jul/07/2015

Suitable for my dry skin. Does not go cakey. Enough coverage to balance out my high pigmentation. Lasts all day. Cheap. Bottle has a pump. Applies well with fingers and beauty blender. Have not tried a brush as yet. No SPF but it applied well over my Clinique Factor 40.

A long lasting foundation without the drying effect of ELDW (also a very good foundation but not wonderful for me).

Feels like it has a split personality on me. Or I have washed in my favourite shower gel and followed it up with a spritz of a favourite fragrance. Ne'er the twain shall meet. Are you a fresh, citrusy, aftershavy type scent or sultry jasmine. Too dissonant for me.

Gives my skin that little oomph it sometimes lacks. No need for highlighters and I don't do bronzers either! NW 15/20 with reddish hair - depending on what the hairdresser does or what whim I take that month! Forgot I had it and so glad I reached for it a couple of days ago. Think I'll be making better use of this one in the future!

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Lengths Mascara

I have very fair, thin, short eyelashes and struggle to find a mascara that doesn't go clumpy on me. The thin wand on this product gets in close to the roots and makes the most of my sparse eyelashes. The wand needs to be cleaned before use to get rid off excess mascara. It's a shame the tube doesn't have way of doing this.

I'm newly converted to this. I bought it for going on holidays. Taking one bottle is a lot easier than carrying multiple bottles of cleansers, toners, eye makeup removers, exfoliators... Right? This stuff is amazing and I truly believe it does everything I mentioned above. It is soothing to apply, it melts away foundation and eye makeup and the muslin cloth removes everything beautifully …Read more

I have been curious about this lipstick for over a year now but was always a little intimidated by how it looked in the tube - really dark and vampy. I finally tried it out yesterday. The makeup artist who sold it to me did an amazing job of selling her product. At first I just told her I wanted to see how it looked on the back of my hand because I was worried it might drain the colour out of my …Read more
