I hated this! I found that this did not give my lashes any volume but made them long and spidery. I wasn't impressed either about the no clumping claim. After wearing this for about 30 minutes it began flaking. Not good!!!

I can't believe that this isn't listed! So I feel it's my duty to spread the word!!

I found this brand in a corner of my local River Island and was immediately in love with all the colours. Not where you would usually find nail polish, I know! sThere are so many bright, on trend colours to choose from but as I hadn't heard of the brand before I thought it best to …

If Molton Brown had just got the fragrance right then this would be perfect! I was really hoping to get an exotic spicy rose scent after reading the description (rose, pomegranate, black pepper, cardamom and ginger) but to me it doesn't smell any more luxurious than something you can pick up at the supermarket. Very disappointing.

However, the actual hand soap itself is …

An amazing hand lotion. It really did a good job on my poor dry hands. I've had sore chapped hands with a touch of eczema but this lotion has given them the TLC they needed and the results were quick.

As for the smell, I was a little disappointed and was expecting the scent to be slightly stronger. I don't really get the spicy rose fragrance that I was hoping for. Not …

It took me a while to get used to the slightly medicated smell of this. A fairly good lip balm but not the best I've ever used but one thing I do like is that a little goes a long way. One downside is that it's not really suitable for using on cuticles or dry areas on my face in an emergency unlike Vaseline. On the plus side, I think the screw top lid is great as there is no chance …Read more

I'm disappointed by TiGi again. I wasn't impressed with Sexed Up shampoo & conditioner but decided to give the brand another go. Wish I hadn't! I was looking for a colour safe range that would also be volumising and I must admit after the first couple of uses that is what I got and I was happy to think that I hadn't wasted money again. However after a couple of days my …Read more

This is so fabulous!!! One of the best brushes I have. I thought I loved my NARS blush before but after using it with this brush it's amazing. This brush is so soft and the fine bristles pick up just the right amount. The size of the brush is great too and makes applying your make up a doddle!! Since pout are now no more (boo) I was lucky enough to pick this up for a bargain. I …Read more

I like the fact that this is a mousse as it makes it really easy to put on and practically mess free. This gave me a really natural colour and wasn't too dark on my fair skin. I've seen this on my friends with more natural colour go quite orange so I think this might be better suited to fairer skin tones.

Yuck! My hair is long and fine but I have lots of it and I usually use straighteners after washing and drying. This shampoo has made my hair horribly greasy at the roots and strawlike in the length. I had to wash it straight away with another shampoo. I don't know why people rave about the smell - to me it smells like a strong medicated shampoo. I also bought the Shampure conditioner and …Read more

A nice shimmery, silvery brown. The silky texture makes it easy to blend. I use this during the day with some eyeliner and mascara. Good staying power but do need to retouch late afternoon.
