Decent mascara - does the job, stayed on after 1 hour spin class with no smudging at all. Holds lashes in place - not as good as my favourite Clinique waterproof, but very good value especially when on offer 3 for 2

Mascara - essence - All Eyes On Me Multi-Effect Mascara - Waterproof

1.0

Rubbish brush. Sparse bristles means that the lashes aren't properly coated. There is probably 50% less bristles than on an usual brush. This is meant to be a multi purpose mascara (curl, lengthen) - it doesn't fulfil any of these promises. The product clumps around lashes, had to comb out using an old Clinique brush.
Its cheap for a reason - but actually a complete waste of money

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Zara - FLEUR DE PATCHOULI

This is a collaboration between Zara clothing and Jo Malone. I don't tend to favour florals, but the patchouli cuts through the sweetness of this scent. This is a feminine, classy fragrance, which I wear during day and night. Its fantastic good value (£15 for 40ml), the only downside is that it starts to fade after a few hours. However, at its price you can easily afford to spray it again …Read more

I use this at night as its a little tacky in formulation. I mist my face and then massage the serum/gel into my skin. Depending on how much I use it can leave noticeable residue, even over night. Its great value, considering the amount the tub holds. I can imagine this lasting a year.

Mascara - essence - Get BIG! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

1.0

I hated this. The brush is big and loads up too much product, which makes application difficult without removing most of the product onto tissue. I'm not fan of curved brushes because they don't always allow me to easily to twirl the brush around lashes- as this brush is very big & I found it tricky to use.

I tried using it 3/4 times but application was never successful …

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner - Grafton Street

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

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

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 …
