If you don't breakout from this and only need to use 1 pump to hydrate your face- get this. If you need to use 2 pumps you get that 'coat' on your face that comes from trying to layer on creams that are designed to create a light and dewy feel.

The moisturiser has a slightly watery texture and feels nice on the skin. My skin is currently going through a massive breakout …

After reading glowing reviews I was very excited about this! However this made my dry cheeks go berserk, swell up and itchy. The texture of my skin became very uneven, bumpy (but very tiny red bumps that gave the impression of swelling unless you were looking very closely) and tender. The only my forehead and neck (the oily/normal) areas of skin did not change.

I recommended you patch …

I bought the lip ointment in 'apple' which is a bright poppy red.
It is highly pigmented, stays on for awhile (but don't expect the colour to last all day without reapplication) Dab on if you want intense colour and you can just rub and blot if you want a more subtle effect
Has SPF
Texture is sticky but not annoyingly so
You can use this a cheek stain! …

This was my first red and I love it. It has a 'dusty' quality to it, meaning it isn't the kind of colour that is going to 'wow' anyone with its vibrancy.

I have warm/medium/olive skin and I think it looks lovely. The shade would be how I'd imagine what the Red Queen would wear in the illustrations of an old edition of the story. It reminds of tarts and …

I bought this colour on the intention it'd be my cautious foray into wearing polishes with a bit of a pink hue in them.

I have warm/medium/olive skin and this polish, whilst I adore the colour on my nails, really doesn't have much pink in it all. It's more of a muted red with perhaps a hint of coral. However it's still a lovely spring colour and break from my …

It smells divine, has a thick yet non greasy texture that I don't really mind putting on my face at night (this definitely wouldn't be a day product layering it with sunscreen would be way too thick by my standards!)

However I have eczema on my cheeks and for some reason Skin Food makes my cheeks break out in hives. However everywhere else it is lovely- it doesn't even …

This polish is really easy to apply and if you are very nifty with a brush sometimes you can even get away with one coat of colour! In regards to the colour itself, I have had a love and hate relationship with this one. I am around a NC42 with a definite olive cast and this colour looks fantastic in natural light on me- almost like a lovely natural flush of colour on my nails. However in direct …Read more

In a mascara I look for these things:

No clumping
No smudging
A bit of added length

This mascara definitely lengthens, it comes in a very lovely true black. However it clumps and smudges like nothing else! I do try very hard to scrape off all the excess product from the wand to prevent lumps however I will always get some form of clumping going on, that i hate to …

I agree with the poster below- this makes a fabulous brow powder! I use this on my black asian brows to give a little bit more omph and it looks completely natural (NC42 skin.) It lasts for the whole day and doesn't smear or anything!
Also when applied wet it doesn't do a bad job as an eyeliner.
