Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sympathy for the Skin Body Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2016

I'll cut straight to the chase- I absolutely LOVE this lotion. The consistency is just right...not too runny; not to too thick. It takes a little while to fully absorb into the skin, so do allow some time before getting dressed. I don't find it overly greasy, although sometimes I will have to wash my hands after applying, depending on how much I've put on. Of course, it's nice …Read more

Crème - benefit Cosmetics - Some Kind-A Gorgeous

Mar/02/2015

As the reviewer below said, I'm just not understanding the hate for this! I love it and have repurchased twice.
Okay, so the formula is a little confusing - i get that. It feels rather oily, especially if you swatch it with your finger...yet despite that, it's actually oil-free.
I use my SKG in two different ways - firstly as a lightweight, sheer foundation with a dusting of …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Shroom

I wanted to buy Gesso for my brow bone/inner-eye highlight, but was told they'd sold out. The SA suggested i try Shroom instead. So I did...

Hmm. It's okay, I guess. The reason I wanted Gesso was that it was quite an opaque white, and looks very clean...This is actually pretty sheer, and I need to build it up to get the result I want
It's got a pretty peach …

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 15

Oh my, this lip balm is such a lifesaver!
My lips are so, so ridiculously dry, and the past 2 weeks have seen them in the worst state they've ever been. I imagine its a combination of the wicked winter weather, and the central heating in my house and at work - regardless, it has left my lips peeling off in sheets (gross), flaking like nothing you've ever seen before, red, chapped …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Dallas Dusty-Rose Blush & Bronzer

5.0

Apr/17/2013

Ah, my dearest Dallas. How I love thee!

Finally, something darker & more sultry than a pink, that doesn't wash me out!
Never thought i'd see the day :)
I've used Dallas virtually every day since buying it, and I love it just as much as i first did three years ago.

It's a stunning plummy-tan colour, not quite blush, not quite bronzer. So …

Brows - The Body Shop - Eyebrow definer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2013

I really dislike writing negative reviews, but I can't stand this product!

My eyebrows need constant attention, in terms of filling in and defining, as i've been rather over-zealous with tweezers in the past!

After turning up at work, I realized much to my horror that i'd forgotton to do my brows! My beloved Clinique brow definer was alllllll the way at home …

Lipstick - Dior - Dior Addict - 178 Urban

Apr/17/2013

I've been using this shade for a while now, and am onto my fifth tube.

The packaging is beautiful, and to be honest, is what initially drew me towards it! Very pretty transparent Addict casing, with a stunning "oil in water" effect when angled in the light.

The colour itself, "Urban", is a nice cool-to-neutral toned pink. I'd have to describe …

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

Apr/17/2013

I love this bronzer!
Not much I can really say about it that hasn't already been said...

It's very pigmented, surprisingly so....and even if you only pick up a small amount on your brush, the colour payoff on your skin is still quite bold.

I'm NW 15 for reference, and with a (very) light hand & lots of blending, Hoola gives me a convincing sun kissed …

Treatments (Face) - KORRES Natural Products - Wild Rose Brightening Serum

4.0

Jul/02/2012

I added this to my skincare routine 2 months ago & already love it enough to write a review!
Im always super skeptical towards product claims, & this is no exception...but it works well. My skin appears a little brighter and fresher, & the density has improved. Usually everything makes me break out but not this, which is awesome :-)

For reference, Im a dry/combination …
