Tried this on the back of my hand in store and loved it. Bought it. Went home and put on my face and my heart sank. Of all the BB creams I have this one was the heaviest and driest. I thought BB creams were meant to look natural and sheer? Not this one. Reminded me very much of the By Terry face glow. Highlighted all my pores and dry patches. Wish I could return it.

One of the best if not THE best lip balm I've used & I've used la mer, by terry, christian dior rose balm, laura mercier dear Lord the list goes on. No matter how badly split and dry my lips are, this always restores them beautifully. When I put it on at night, in the morning my lips do feel plumper and not dry at all. I find it a little heavy for under lipstick but use it then blot …Read more

I was tricked in to buying this when what I really wanted was the eyeshadows. Don't be fooled by this ladies - it really is a terrible mascara. Did nothing for my lashes. Doesn't hold the curl or thicken or lengthen. Worst of all it is THE flakiest mascara I have ever used.

I had been using moroccanoil and seriously didn't get the hype about it. It did nothing for my hair. When I asked the SA at Shu to recommend one thing from the hair section he said to get the Essence Absolu. I honestly cannot say how great my hair looks since using this. I have fine long frizz prone hair that is easily weighed down and can look greasy with even a little product. This stuff …Read more

So I bought this without actually needing. I am a huge fan of the Hyaluronic eye primer and that alone sold it for me.
I found this to be way too thick in consistency and quite drying once on the skin. It showed up every dry patch and flakiness. Again, the super strong fragrance gives me a headache.
I think they could have done really well with this product but as it stands it's …

I am really surprised by this product. I've been dabbling with serums for a while now.
I started off with Estee Lauders night repair concentrate, then moved on to Lancome Genefique Youth Activator - then got roped in to buying Lancome Visionnaire...
Out of all these serums - this one worked for me. I have combo skin with visible pores.
This visibly reduced the size of my pores …

Jan/28/2011

Another impulse buy. I hadn't used the original Sumptuous mascara but fancied a change from my Chantecaille.
I bought this on the spot simply because I liked the marketing.
I was so surprised by this. My lashes had taken a battering recently and were looking less than their usual selves ie- shedding, breaking lack of gloss..
This transformed them instantly. I didn't …

Sunscreen - BECCA - Mineral SPF 30+ Primer

This is far too thick for my liking and I wouldn't consider it to be a primer at all.
I need a moisturiser of some sort before this as it is far too drying on my combination skin.
I also wouldn't use cream or liquid foundation over this as I can imagine it would look terrible. I do go over some area's with my MAC mineralize skin finish and it sits well on top.

Dec/10/2010

I've had this a while and it is only now I'm appreciating it. When I first got it it was too watery for my liking but a few months down the line the consistency has thickened a little and it does a fabulous job.
I find this lengthens more than any other mascara I have used. It doesn't really thicken but then I have yet to find a mascara that thickens my lashes without …

I have been using this for about 2 weeks. It is fairly new - I happened to come across it by chance.
This is probably the most effective primer I have ever used and I have used many.I have combination skin, pores on nose and forehead, gets oily on t-zone within an hour of applying foundation (which I rarely use).
The beauty of this product is it does everything I want a …
