Beautiful saturated red that will make your teeth even whiter, no orange no blue, just pure red. The formula is terrible though,you literally have to drag it on your lips. Best tecnique is to use a brush to roughly apply a first coat, blot and then go straight from the bullet. That way it won't leave a dreaded middle patch in the centre of your lips if you plan to wear it for a meal …Read more

This is probably the only Ordinary product I personally didn't get on. I find it very limiting as it can't be use in the same routine as vitamim C or retinol and I love vitamin C in the morning and retinol at night. I used it for a good month in place of my vitamin C serum in the morning and I didn't notice any substantial difference to my skin. Despite its light oil consistency it …Read more

I felt compelled to write a review for possibly the worst mascara I have ever tried. If you consider the price, it really is an insult to the public. How could they release such terrible product? Honestly, this is all due to Charlotte and "darlings", if they still sell it but it is bad bad bad. There's no way to apply it as the wand is absolutely overloaded with a clumpy mess and …Read more

I have always loved oils for my dry skin but never come across squalene before The Ordinary launched it. Now it seems to be the latest trend and available everywhere from GOW, Inkey list, Indeed, all at quite affordable prices. I personally love it, I find it melts into my skin at night sandwiched under a moisturizer and offers bounce and glow (not grease) during the day now that's winter …Read more

I expected a buttery moisturizing cream when I ordered it but the consistency is very similar to a cold cream which leaves the skin "dry" when applied. If you use it prior to make up you are not going to get a bouncy texture and a glowy finish. As for the antiaging properties, I have not seen none and didn't expect any to be honest. It's a very average moisturizer and …Read more

On my second tube of this mascara and I won't repurchase it again. I bought the first tube in London and the second in Italy as I wrongly thought that there was a formulation/batch issue with the first one but I believe it is just a very thick dry formula. It takes a thousand coats to achieve nice volume and when you think you're done something weird happens. Twenty minutes later in the …Read more

One of the best products by the Ordinary, it actually does manage to make my eye area brighter and less puffy. You get a lot for the price so I decant enough in a small vial for daily use for a couple of weeks and the rest stays fresh in the bottle.I really like the way this serum has improved the texture around my eyes, it is not hydrating and doesn't claim to be so I follow with a dab of …Read more

Very similar in texture to a silicone primer, this retinol spreads easily but at the same time you get the feeling that it's not really penetrating in your skin. Having said that, I had a couple of weeks of mild peeling and low irrititation which surprised me a lot as I am used to tretinoin and I don't get any side effect but just the benefits of retinol. I am using it up mixed to a …Read more

I've just finished my first pan which lasted me about 2 years, but I only use it as an everyday winter blush. I'm about NC 25 during the colder months but in summer I easily become NC35 so this blush wouldn't show up at all. I love the shade, just about the perfect balance of brown, mauve and pink, very natural, a tad lighter than Bobbi Brown Blushed Rose. It's sheer but …Read more
