Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - OPI Scores A Goal

I am obviously the minority here but god I hate this one. I’ve been an OPI fan for years and love nearly all but this never ever ever dries. Ever.

Fantastic colour though.

Bronzers - Giorgio Armani - Sheer Bronzer #1 [DISCONTINUED]

Love this. I have NW/NC 20 neutral skin that will throw orange, muddy or pink very easily but this product does none of that. I use a large fluffy brush and a light hand to produce a nice natural 'flush' which lifts and shapes my features and makes me look generally healthier. By far this is the best bronzer I've ever used.

I sometimes also use it an e/s crease definer …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick

Absolute rubbish. I have Shocking Coral and the finish is patchy, uneven, drying and highlights any dryness on the lip. It is near impossible to get right and wearabilty is zero.

If you are used to high end quality (YSL, Dior, Guerlain and even the mid range goodies like MAC or Clinique) then don't even bother. The worst lipstick I've ever bought.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Satin - Modelette (Warm & Cozy 2009)

Agree with the previous poster; this is the all-purpose perfect pale neutral that will pair beautifully with almost anything.


I'm a neutral NW/NC20 and use Modelette as an overall eyelid wash to finish a natural 'no makeup' look with clear lipgloss and bronzer; or pair it as a finished but naked eye look with a vivid lip. It is also great with a slick of black …

Self Tanners - ModelCo - Self-Tanning Glove

Disgusting.

I've used many fake tanners for the past decade or so from the high end (St Tropez, Clarins, Estee Lauder) through to the cheap (Le Tan, Sugar Baby, L'Oreal). I follow the instructions to the letter; use great exfoliation products and moisturise my rough bits first. I do it all correctly and STILL this Modelco monstrosity streaked, stuck, made me stink and made me …

Cleansers - Mario Badescu - Orange Cleansing Soap

Jan/05/2012

I like this cleanser - it is a no nonsense basic cold-cream-but-better product that does what it promises. No stripping, no drying, no tightness.

The bottle is huge and lasts for ages (i'm 3 months into my current one and not even half empty). The smell is slightly unpleasant with a hardly detectable orange scent.

I am torn as to whether or not to blame it for my …

Treatments (Face) - Peter Thomas Roth - Gentle Compexion Correction Pads

Jan/05/2012

I suspect these pads have started to cause me to have cystic acne around my chin. I've been using them for 3 months and found that my 36 year old acne prone combination skin is defintely smoother however i've experienced the worst cysts that i've had since my teens.

I'd started using these pads as part of a new skincare regime to wean me off Proactiv after having …

Styling Products - AVEDA - Confixor

I wanted to review this to say it not only works on fine hair, but on coarse thick hair also. Mine is very thick and fairly frizzy, and very few products manage to tame it. I apply Confixor when mine is wet to damp, and scrunch it a little as it dries to get some texture and movement. The result is soft definition, no crunch at all, and minimal frizz.

The smell: 'generic' …

More a nude on me than a pink.....I have Hug Me and found that too pink so I wanted a true nude. I currently have dyed orange/auburn hair (and NW20 skin and fairly pigmented lips) and find it hard to wear most colour lipsticks but this one is great.
