Don't know why I'd never tried this mascara before. It's really great if you're after dramatic volume and depth of colour. Not for you if you like a more natural look or hate clumps - it is a little bit clumpy but I like that. Fantastic mascara.

Treatments (Eye) - Zelens - Intensive Triple Action Eye Cream

Jan/10/2015

Probably the best eye cream I've ever used. It has a lovely, waxy/balm texture, which feels instantly as though it's going to moisturise deeply. And it does - the fine lines around my eyes look plumped out. After two months of using it, my shadows actually look diminished and my mum told me I looked well when she saw me recently without makeup - her usual comment is that I look tired! …Read more

I really like this. I am nearly 40 but have oily skin and this does a great job of keeping it fairly matte while allowing some glow. There's a youthful sheen to this powder and people have commented on how good my skin looks while wearing it. Perhaps it wouldn't suit a drier skin, judging by the negative reviews on here, but it suits me. That said, I won't repurchase. I often end …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Funny Face

Gorgeous warm bright pink cream polish. Works well as a clashing colour if you're wearing red or orange! Great quality and super hard-wearing - this lasted five days on my nails with no chips, despite no top coat. A week on and there's still only minimal chipping on a couple of the nail tips. A must-have pink for your collection.

Beautiful powdery floral-chypre. I have always loved it. I wore it in my twenties, stopped, then went back to it recently. I adore it as much as I ever did. It isn't as cool and elegant as my ultimate favourite, L'Heure Bleue, but it's nice to have it on my shelf for when I fancy it. Naughty bottle that looks a bit like a breast! (or is it just me?) A modern classic. Just wish it …Read more

To me, this has a shampoo-like smell, with a certain sharpness. I don't get any of the soft floral notes other reviewers mention. Really don't like it, unfortunately.

Contact lens wearers beware!! I bought this in Intense Aubergine, which is a great shade - was looking for a black plum that leaned warm and brownish rather than cool purple. This fit the bill perfectly. I applied it the following morning. Within half an hour my lenses had misted up completely - I had to take them out. I could see cloudy patches all over them. I tried to rinse them but every time …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Illuminating

Mar/15/2014

Oh dear, this does not work for me at all. Thick and glittery with strange orange undertones, it highlights all the imperfections of my actually-fairly-okay skin. I bought it after reading a rave review by The Guardian's Sali Hughes. We're about the same age, I think, and she knows her stuff. But now I realise she must have very fine, dry skin, and for those skin types, this possibly …Read more

Mar/15/2014

Why oh why did I get sucked into buying this again?! I knew from previous experience, years ago, that it doesn't work for me. But I thought that now I'm in my late 30s, and my skin is *slightly* less oily, it might be better. Not so. Within an hour my skin felt so greasy and I spent the whole day feeling as though I really needed to wash my face. Ugh. I know it's oil-free, but in …Read more

Wow, this is lovely. A very dark blackened olive shot through with bronze - really unusual colour. It's kind of what I hoped Laura Mercier's Black Gold would be, only with a bit more green. So often, you get these eyeliners which are gorgeous colours, but just don't show up. That is not the case with this Cream Shaper. It's a soft, dense pencil that gives great colour pay-off …Read more
