Cleansers - Bobbi Brown - balm rinse

Jul/21/2009

This product made my skin breakout like crazy-despite following the instructions perfectly and making sure every last trace of it was removed, I am now covered in horrible spots and my face looks a mess. This balm rinse is part of the Bobbi Brown 'extra' range and was what I was looking for as a make-up remover. I intended to use this solely to remove make-up and then to follow up with …Read more

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - designer shaping

Jun/17/2009

Was so excited to try this foundation as I have heard so many rave reviews about the armani foundations. The SA recommended this one as it had the most coverage, and because my usual foundation is MAC studio fix fluid, she said this would be the best. I am usually an NC15-20 in MAC, depending if I have my fake tan on or not. The SA matched me to 5.5 and I bought it. When I got home, I tried it …Read more

Love this bright, fun pink on my fingers and toes! I am NC15-20 and wear self tanner and this gorgeous pink really stands out. I've worn it a lot and I just know it's going to be a summer staple. I adore OPI polishes because they are fantastic quality and really last. Once painted, my nail colour easily lasts a week. Very impressed.

Polishes - OPI - Monsooner or later

This gorgeous orangey red polish is one of my favourites. I wear this a lot. I am NC15-20 but I wear fake tan and this colour looks amazing with it. I always get compliments on this. I apply 2 coats over my nail envy and it gives a gorgeous colour. Sometimes I'm brave and do three, but it's a lot more hasle with smudging and the like. As with all OPI polishes, fantastic quality and the …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Pompeii Purple

This is agreat, fun colour to liven up the toes or fingers! It's a pinky purple and looks great with a tan-really eye popping. I have it on my toes now. As with all OPI polishes, fantastic quality and the pro-wide brush is a godsend. OPI is by far my favourite nail polish brand, and I never thought I'd stray from Chanel!

Self Tanners - CLARINS - Gelee Auto Bronzant Express - Self-Tanning Instant Gel

4.0

Apr/27/2009

I prefer this over the tanning milk, which is also good, but the gel seems to work that bit better. It seems to apply better on my face too. It's expensive, but I feel it's worth it. It's a clear formula, so no colour guide, but I prefer this type. I am NC15-20, and this lasts about 3-4 days on me. It gives a really natural looking tan-no orange! It is very easy to apply and sinks …Read more

Self Tanners - CLARINS - Self Tanning Milk SPF 6

Apr/27/2009

What I like about this is that it's really easy to apply. It does not have a colour guide, but I've used fake tan for so long now that I do not need one. I actually prefer this type as I can get on with doing other things while my tan is developing, rather than having to stay in the house looking like I've just wrestled in mud! I am NC15-20 and this gives a light golden tan. It …Read more

Apr/27/2009

This is the ONLY product that stopped me biting my nails.I started using it on Christmas eve 2008 as a last ditch attempt to grow my nails (I have bitten them since I was a kid and relied on falsies, though hated the feel of them). I have tried many treatments and products in the past, but even when I managed to get a bit of nail growth, my nails would be so weak they would bend and break. I have …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre in Lady Bug

3.0

Apr/27/2009

I adore this colour, but it is very drying. Even when I apply lipbalm it makes no difference. After a short while it feels uncomfortable on my lips and it balls off which is very, very annoying. So sad as the colour is perfect. Just wih the texture was too. Dior rouge lipsticks are much more moisturising than this.

Another fabulous blush from Mr NARS! I am betwen NC15 and NC20, and this gives me a gorgeous, flushed pink look. I simply adore it. I swipe some MAC MSF over it if I want a bit more of a shimmer and it looks gorgeous. NARS blushers are THE best. I have blushers from MAC, Chanel, Benefit, Pout, Dior and Stila, yet my NARS ones are by far the most used. Highly pigmented and last forever. My only …Read more
