This is the holy grail of hair straighteners. I have been using GHD's for years thinking I couldn't find anything better but they were destroying the ends of my hair and I had lots of broken bits around my temples where the hair isn't as strong. My friend who has similar hair to me, coarse textured, color processed etc recommended this and actually let me try hers out and I …Read more

I purchased this as a heat protector as recommended by my hairdresser. I did know there was a slightly unpleasant smell off it as my hairdresser had used it on me in the salon but it didn't bother me that much. I can see why some people may have an issue with it though, its kind of a cooking oil scent. I only really noticed the benefit of the product when I used it myself. It cuts down the …Read more

I always come back to this mascara after using more expensive ones. I find the quality to be as good if not better than any of the YSL, EL, Lancome etc. It just really defines my lashes which is all I'm looking for in a Mascara. I don't find the lengthening, thickening etc mascaras any good because they look too obvious. I like my own eyelashes so have no reason to change them, just …Read more

I got the 50ml jar of this in a promotion set along with the other cleanser toner and eye bright. I like the other products but am not too keen on this as I feel it is little greasy for my combination skin particularly for under make up. I now just use it at night before bed but I find the smell a bit sickly and don't think I will be purchasing again.

I have small eyes so when I got a makeover at the MAC counter, the MUA trimmed the end off them and then doubled the extra bit on the end so it gave some extra volume on the outer lashes where needed. I have to say I loved the look and felt really glam. I have to try and put them on myself but at least I know they are the right size for me now and should be able to match them up easily. Would …Read more

I got this because I liked the color and have heard it recommended in magazines.I have to say not happy with the results. I am fair with blonde hair and it just seemed too pink on me. I found the brush terrible as it laid it on streaky and was hard to blend unlike some other more expensive blushers I have used. The packaging looks cute but I dropped it once the other day and the blush powder …Read more

Hated this product. I got the blue one and the eyeshadow has no pigment and the lipsticks were terrible apart from the light pink gloss. Everything else was pretty useless except the blush and bronzer which were useable. For teens and pre teens only.

I really like this fragrance. It reminds me of vodka and orange juice. Not really a day time perfume though as its a little over whelming but none the less for nights out this is the only one i use.
