This is the best es palette I have ever bought, the colours are so beautiful and of such good quality. I am also so thrilled that they included very few glitter shades. I wish they would just leave the glitter out of all their shades. my fave colours are AC/DC, Sphynx, Misdemeanor, YDK, Sellout and Nylon for everyday use, I am sure I will have great fun using the more dramatic shades when the …Read more

I only got this product today but I have been wearing it most of the day and i am very pleased with it. It is the colour really that I like most about it. I was looking for a nice reddish orange colour and this is perfect for my fair skin, it really brightens my face up without being too harsh or aging, I find it very hard to get a bright red to suit me so this is the perfect compromise! …Read more

I have had this product for quite a while but haven't used it for ages. Like other reviewers, I didn't like the fact it got so grubby! ANyway, I have just ran out of my Smashbox primer so I have started using this again. However, I now apply it using a dedicated foundation brush, under my corrector and foundation. So far I am much more impressed with it than before . My oily nose looks …Read more

I have been doing an ITEC course in makeup for the past few months and my instructor recommended we invest in this brush, was I glad I did! It is a fabulous brush, I use it to apply foundation and then to buff over blusher at the end of makeup application, it gives an airbrushed appearance to the skin. I paid €48 for it which is mad expensive (my mother was with me at the time of purchase and …Read more

I bought a selection of lip tints, lip cremes and lip glosses last year when they were on sale in Top Shop. I was quite excited because there was an impressive array of colours and textures. However, less than a year on the lip tints have changed colour!!! What was a very nice natural berry tint has now gone blue (!), and the beige tint has gone a sour looking white. Gack! No idea what kind of …Read more

I bought this product last night as I couldn't believe how dramatic it was when I test ran it in the shop. It says it is a bright blue but I think it has a bright royal purple/lilac tint to it too. It is very eye catching and I would say it would suit most eye colours. I have hazel eyes with flecks of turquoise and I love to find eye colours which bring out the turquoise. This certainly did! …Read more

I have the waterproof version of this mascara and I think it is much more dramatic than the original. I truly could not believe the effect when I first tried it! The only thing that puts me off this mascara is the difficulty in removing it. Dear God, what does one have to do????!!!!!! I am going straight to the eyemakeup remover section to see what is recommended!

A friend gave me this foundation as it was too dark for her. It is number 1 and I can only wear it if I have fake tanned myself. Despite this gripe, the foundation is excellent. It lasts all day and gives a nice healthy glow to the skin. I apply a couple of squirts of it and dot my face. I spread it around using my foundation brush. I tried using my fingers but found I was dragging it around a …Read more
