I have this in Warm, Soft and the lightest one, in a fit of indecision. The Warm (actually the darkest with no red in it) looks the most dramatic and I need to apply this lightly. I may go back to using one of the other two for a bit. I always use over the Ash duo LM Brow Powder and with the Brow Definer brush, which really works. The powder fills in and the definer defines the hairs which …Read more

I have this in Ash and Soft Blonde. Soft Blonde is too warm for me and I find that Ash suits me much better. I am v fair, cool toned complexion with light brown brows. I like to follow this with the Brow Definer which is un unbeatable combo, but sometimes I just use the brow gel on top of the brow powder if I am in a hurry. I also bought both brushes to go with the products which are very …Read more

I have been using this cleanser for a few years. I do take the point that it is not as organic as it claims to be but personally I like using it. I don't use it to take my makeup off with as it would simply stain the washcloth! I use this first thing in the morning. I do like the washcloth; this definitely has cut down my blocked pores, spots and I like the exfoliating action. Also good …Read more

I recently purchased this together with the B5 moisturiser serum, the sunscreen and the renewal night cream combination/oily. Yes it does smell like hotdogs but this fades pretty quickly. So far I have been using all these products as directed and I cannot detect any improvement in my skin but I have had no adverse reaction. This is after 2 weeks. I will update when I have got the the end of …Read more

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pale Pink

Good colour; but annoying packaging with a screw off lid which would have been more convenient as a flip top. My main gripe is I find the product too tacky so hard to apply and it is also too greasy and seems disappear. IMO the texture of Nars cream blushes much superior in that they are creamy but instantly turn into powder on application.
**update. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on …

Used under your usual mascara this really thickens your lashes giving much more oomph. The effect is very noticeable. Now I have started wearing this don't think I can live without it. Also I have noticed that it seems to stop smudging and flaking. 10/10

I have fine hair which goes dull and slightly frizzy in damp weather. I bought Phomollient and was not impressed as I found it seemed to dry my colour processed hair out and made it crunchy. This was relegated to the back of the bathroom cabinet along with Aveda Leave in Elixir conditioner which i found made my hair too soft and limp. Then a previous MUA-er sugggested "cocktailing" …Read more

I would like to buy this again but they have discontinued it. Why?? This is already pretty heavy for my fine hair; I can only use on the middle to ends of my hair. Result is soft hair without any product feel provided you use only a tiny amount. If I use near the roots then it makes my hair look greasy. I have read reviews where people suggest "cocktailing" other products and I wonder …Read more
