This is highly pigmented eyeliner - I swipe one stroke over my lids and blend out. Colour is a vibrant green/teal and looks great with my dark eyes and tan skin. Liners can fade away quickly on me even with a primer, but this stayed put all day even after working out in the gym for an hour. Highly recommend and worth the value

This is my 2nd bottle and used daily I would say that its lasted 7-8 months. Blends well and can be used as concealer, but its coverage isn't sufficient to cover dark circles around my eyes. Provides a medium buildable coverage. I does have a luminosity to it but it never looks oily or too shiny on my combinations skin.
My gripe with Nars is that you have to buy the pump - not sure why …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Emma Hardie Vitamin C Intense Daily Serum

A light cream serum, which absorbs quickly. I was lucky enough to get a sample pot of this serum and didn't experience any side effects despite the fairly strong fragrance of neroili (orange blossom) which may cause issues for some with sensitive skin. I actually liked the smell but it some may find it overpowering especially on the face.
I don't think it warrants the price …

I was given this as a sample. Texture is slightly thicker than the normal watery vitamin c serums I've used in pas. Its orange in colour and as previous poster stated, it would be difficult to assess when if its oxidised,, however its bottle which is opaque so I think its efficacy would remain safe.
I didn't experience any side effects,but the cost is prohibitive to me. The …

For years I've bought Elnett and cheap own brand hair sprays, which aren't often fit for purpose. They spray large amounts of wet,heavy product which leave my hair feeling hard and brittle with zero movement.
Though this product is expensive (£11 for 400ml) it's lovely to use. Produces a very fine mist, with a gorgeous smell - holds my hair, without way it down and seems to …

For years I had an oily complexion and as a result was only attracted to a matte look on my face. However, as I've got older and now have combination skin, I realise that a matte look is aging. I'm Indian in ethnicity with medium dark tan complexion & wanted a foundation which added a glow/ plumpness to skin but provided enough coverage to blur melasma patches.

I love this …

Thin gel like consistency. Absorbs easily, feels nice and cooling. The assistant in Deciem was clear that this product would only give a temporary effect for a couple of hours but it sadly didn't absolutely nothing in diminishing my dark circles.

What I love about Deciem is that if the product doesn't work or you're not happy with it, they will refund you. I bought this to help with to fight melasma patches and thought if it doesn't work, I can always get my money back.

The serum is fairly thick and doesn't absorb as easily as some. If I don't rub the serum in, it can sit on the skin. 2-3 drops is all …
