If your skin has any hint of yellow/olive undertone stay away from this foundation. Also if you have any dehydration or dryness issues, this foundation will stick to your skin, skink in your pores in from of white speckle dots and will highlight any wrinkle like a mofo.

Colour selection of this product is another issue. All the light colours are basically pink. The one I was after was …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Super Slim Eyeliner - Intense black

I have recently came back to using a black eyeliner and I was on a lookout for a not too expensive, reliable one with a sponge tip. L'Oreal used to do a genius one (it was a silver gold plastic screw on packaging and the product inside was brilliant but of course it was discontinued) so instead of going for my usual one of Clinique and Marc Jacobs (both are more glossy than this one) I …Read more

I had to throw Armani's Maestro Glow foundation away recently after using more than half a bottle. It simply went bad which never happened to any of my foundations before. I guess it is because of an unhygienic design of the bottle with that silly pipette thing that makes the oxygen and bacteria to flourish in a liquid after a while of dipping it in and out over a long period of time …Read more

I'm almost at an end of my jar of this product and I still don't know what it is supposed to do and why I bought it! (Well, I bought it after reading good reviews here!).

I take out a very small amount of product after I blown dry my hair on a round brush, spread it on my fingertips and rub it into the underlayers of my hair at the roots for some lift and then some on the …

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Treatment - Light

I must be the only person on Earth that is not a fan of this line of products' fragrance. It makes me think about unwashed men who use an additional splash of perfume instead of taking a shower. Ok, a fragrance rant over as the smell dissipates quickly and does not linger on my hair or hands after application.

I bough it in a cute, 25 ml dark glass bottle which is a lovely option …

I might be the only person in the world who is not that keen on MO products fragrance but luckily it is quite faint here. The packaging is beautiful, with a very handy pump and in a jolly teal/sea blue colour (hopefully recyclable too!).

Sadly these two above are the most flattering things I can say about this product because it does not volumise my hair whatsoever. It says on the …

In short - the new formula is PANTS. These will make your lips peel like crazy!

Two stars as it has a nice, hefty yet still compact packaging (a metal tube with a translucent plastic top that allows you to see the colour in case you've made a mistake and bought more than one) and a good colour selection (I've bought 84 Immediat which is a subtle, transparent peachy pink …

This REEKS with alcohol denaturate. I really don't know why companies still think it is all right to put this ingredient in their products when it can be so harmful to the skin.

I have used half of the bottle of this on and off which I bought as one of my favourite Youtuber was singing its praises and finally decided to bin it because I don't want to damage skin on my face. I …

I have recently run out of RMS Lip and Cheek in 'Smile' and I was looking into either purchasing another jar of that (my old one was more than a year old so I decided to chuck it) or move into another product which would give me a similar result but in a much more user friendly packaging.

I have initially planned to get a Multiple in Copacabana (I was running low on RMS …

I wish I read DKER's review below before I bought this product. I also have Small Talk and I should have got a second tub of that rather than Motor Mouth. MM does NOTHING for my hair.

I was hoping to get a bit of 'oomph' but without heaviness - Small Talk sometimes can make my hair greasy when I apply more than half a pump. This one does not make my hair heavy even with …
