These are heavily scented, so if your skin is somewhat sensitive, beware. I cannot use them on my face, so they are relegated to cleaning my makeup area and removing swatches. Rather than these, I would recommend the unscented ones (in the natural range I think) which are great and non irritating.

I'm not really convinced by this. It's not bad, but not great either and I'm not convinced this will perform better than any other oil applied regularly. I wouldn't be so disappointed if I enjoyed the smell which I don't, even if it is very subdued. I find it smells like cheap knock off fruity perfume. I won't repurchase.

Not a fan of this, I have the MAC studio finish concealer and while similar I don't find it comparable because of the finish and ease of blending. Maybe I am just not used to this level of coverage, but I found it looked sort of artificial and cakey. I tried different applications methods, including a light touch with a blending brush, with various primers and a blending brush or warming the …Read more

I just got this in 710 Drive Me Nude which like others have noted turns pink when applied. I like the final colour, it's a brightening, easy to wear everyday pink, so I don't regret my purchase. I'm a bit perplexed though. The texture and smell are good, the lasting power is good in that it stains a little so even if you eat you still have some colour. The texture and smell are …Read more

I love this! It's a translucent white with the faintest red/coral shimmer in it. It ends up making your nails look a bright healthy pink. I've worn this for 5 days with Mavala Quick Minute Finish topcoat and it wore really well given the price. No chips for 3 days and then wear on the tips. I have pale skin and sometimes lighter polishes look strange, but this did not.

This is Catrice's take on the Clinique Chubby Sticks at a fraction of the price. Namely, they are a big pencil shaped tinted lipbalm which you twist out. I have this in 020 Rusty in Peace which is a sheer nude peach. It's not very pigmented, especially compared to the Chubby Sticks, but it feels more moisturising and still has coverage. I find this a good product for touching up on the …Read more

I'm conflicted about this, it gave my small straight asian lashes the thickest volume in one swipe. And it looked great when applied, after a couple hours however, it did tend to melt on me and give me raccoon eyes every so often but when cleaned up it still looked great. Like all decent volumising mascaras, it can get clumpy if your are overenthusiastic, so wipe excess product before …Read more

Apr/07/2014

I am always looking for good long lasting lip products, because I hate having to reapply every 5 minutes at work but on the other hand long lasting products tend to be uncomfortable to wear.
I was pleasantly surprised by these however, the texture is very buttery and comfortable and they feel moisturising but not sticky. They are moderately long lasting despite this . I sometimes pair them …

This is the mascara I always come back to.
I have short straight asian lashes and this holds the curl really well without flaking or smudging. I tend to favor a fairly natural look so I only do 1 or 2 coats. It's a really nice, basic mascara for everyday, it can be replaced often since it is inexpensive, and I found it better than many other more expensive mascaras. It is also easy to …

I have the non-waterproof version of this mascara in "ultra black" .
I have short straight asian lashes and I was looking for something that would give a little volume without clumping and this delivers. I did find it a bit dry but found it helped build better than with a thinner consistency mascara, I do find you have take time to apply this properly for best results, the wand is …
