I'm about halfway through this product.

First the pros: It has a nice selection of shades for very fair skin, has spf, and I really like the stick format. The coverage is build-able and long lasting.

Cons: It emphasizes dry spots like crazy! I think the thicker formula of the stick emphasizes differences in skin texture... for me, this is a deal breaker. Also, the …

Revlon's new shine formula is the most comfortable-feeling lipstick in my collection (tinted balms included) and this colour is particularly pretty. To be fair, I tend to go through lipstick phases, falling totally in love with whatever lipstick I'm wearing at the moment, but this one has drawn more compliments than them all! I think this is a love that will last.

It is a …

Soapy carnations! I asked four people for their impression of this perfume while I was wearing it and two of the four said it smelled like a laundry room - that residual scent of fabric softeners. Everyone liked it, mind you, but this perfume is too expensive just to smell vaguely clean and sweet! It is pretty, so if your skin tends to bring out spicy notes it's worth a try.

My rating is based on a sample so I've only worn it a few times. This is very sweet. It smells like a big cloud of honey when I first apply it, then the tuberose comes on strong, which gives it a bit of a 80s throw-back vibe, then cedar, which I quite like but there isn't enough of it. It's all very warm and cuddly and saccharine. It isn't awful, I imagine it could smell nice …Read more

This fragrance starts out smelling strongly of Grand Marnier liquor - intensely orange and alcoholic. Once that dies down, and it does in a few minutes, you get some vanilla milky muskiness with a hint of orange. It lasts around 4 hours on me.

The bottle looks nice, but I find it dispenses way too much product over way too large a surface area. You can't spritz this on your wrist …

This is the best concealer for shadows and redness I've tried. You'll probably want something drier for blemished. The ivory colour is nice and neutral and I like the applicator, it's very easy to use.

This product is serious business. It's a little much for my sensitive skin - I probably use it once a month. However, I've shared it at girls' nights and everyone loves it. It will absolutely deliver soft, smooth skin. I might try it again later in life when I have more skin accumulated to slough off.

My favourite shade. A beautiful mid-toned coral. Really brightens up the face, without being too distracting. Flatters teeth, too.
