Mascara - Jordana Cosmetics - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

I have been using this mascara for close to a year now, and I really like it.

The actual formula of this mascara is absolutely spot on for me. I love it. What lets it down immensely is the packaging. You get WAY too much mascara on the brush straight out of the tube. The wand itself is ok, just a standard bristly affair that I think is a nice size. The problem is the neck of the tube …

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/31/2013

I was drawn to this product as I love Urban Decay's policy on animal testing, and because of the rave reviews. I don't have oily lids and my eyeshadows don't particularly crease, but as I don't use a heavy amount of foundation I wanted something to give my eyelids a nice, even surface for my shadows to adhere to.

The primer came in a nice squeezy tube which I really …

Treatments (Eye) - Superdrug - Simply Pure Aqua Hydrating Eye Gel

5.0

May/28/2013

I very often get compliments on looking a lot younger than I am, but I have felt for some time that the area around my eyes is starting to look a bit tired. I have had minor puffiness, and some very fine lines under my eyes at the top of my cheeks (smile lines).

I picked this eye gel up on a whim, and it is without a doubt one of the best skin care purchases I have made.
The …

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - retractable kabuki

I bought this brush to keep in my bag to re-buff my minerals during the day. I got it based on the reviews here. It's not terribly expensive for a brush, but way overpriced in the UK, especially considering the quality and compared to what the US ladies pay for it.

The brush is pretty soft, although I'm by no means blown away by it. It's pretty average.
The …

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Hardener - Clear

3.0

Nov/08/2010

I needed a good base coat as my nails have started to peel pretty badly the last year or so. I thought I would try this one first since it's cheap and easy to get hold of. The bottle is cute and the formula applies easily, but - and this is a big but - the stuff stinks! It is so strong it makes me cough every time I use it. Now I doubt nail polishes are healthy at the best of times, but …Read more

Lip Treatments - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter

2.0

Aug/08/2010

This lip products does certainly not deserve the name "butter". For me "butter" implies something nice and creamy, and this lip balm is just like vaseline.
It smells divine for about 5 seconds after application, and then it just smells (and tastes!) like petroleum jelly.
The packaging is fine, but the product is rubbish.

Would so not buy again.

Aug/08/2010

I really dislike this lip balm. The scent is fine, but the texture is horrible. It is so waxy and thick.
The packaging is also rubbish, I bought 2 of these lip balms (I go through lip balm like there's no tomorrow) and 1 broke within a few days because for some reason this waxy nastiness got stuck in the lid - something that never happens with other lip products. On the other one …

Aug/08/2010

I love this cream so much. I liked it right away when I bought it, but figured I should try it out for a good while before reviewing it. I have used this cream for about 3 months exclusively now, and it is the best cream I have ever used.
I have very problematic skin - typical combination, sensitive skin that easily breaks out but at the same time needs good hydration or I get red …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

4.0

Aug/08/2010

I bought this cuticle butter after reading good reviews on it. I think the product is really fantastic, but (and there is a but!) I don't think it's perfect.

It does the job beautifully, it is rich, creamy and keeps my cuticles in top shape.
I do however find the smell a bit offputting. It's lemony, but it also has a slightly nasty undertone, like tar or something …

Lip Gloss - benefit Cosmetics - Lipgloss in Kiss Me

3.0

Jun/12/2010

I fell in love with the colour, that even though it looks pretty strong in the tube is a lovely colour on the lips. It's not sticky and feels good on the lips - however, the scent to me is really sickening, and so is the taste. It feels like this lipgloss coats the back of my throat, and seriously makes me feel a bit sick.
I would definitely not buy this or any other Benefit lipgloss …
