Eye Shadow - GUERLAIN - Ombre Eclat 4 Couleurs - Bronze Dore

I wanted to try this eyeshadow for the longest time since I am a huge Guerlain devotee and I loved the look of the shades in the palette - partly because they harmonise so well together, partly because they would obviously suit someone with fair colouring (not that they wouldn't suit other people too) and because they have that vintage / quality look about them.

Surprisingly the …

Self Tanners - Avene - Mositurizing self-tanning lotion (for sensitive skin)

Ok so this is the first time I have applied this product, only about 1 1/2 hours ago. The first things I noticed were that it doesn't have a horrible strong smell that many brands have, and it is very moisturising and gentle - even soothing.

My skin sometimes gets a bit dry and itchy from showering in the water here, as it was today, but after applying this my skin actually …

Why does everyone keep saying this smells like peaches? Apparently it does contain a peach note, but there are also other notes, and peach definitely isn't what first comes to mind when I smell this fragrance. Personally I was thinking more along the lines of apple -even if I'm wrong there. The smell gets me craving apple spice muffins. Although it is fruity, it is more of a soft, rich …Read more

For me this was, if not the best the foundation I've ever tried then definitely up there with the best, and better than any other matte or mouse makeup I've ever tried.

As soon as I apply it my skin looks velvety and even, my pores are completely diffused and it covers the odd blemish and redness around my nose in a natural gorgeous way. My best friend and sister both think …

Liquid - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

How can this foundation 'stay matte' when it doesn't even go on matte to start off with?

As soon as I applied this my skin looked oily and it didn't look matte until I covered it with Stay Matte Pressed Powder. It wasn't the best looking finish because after applying enough powder to blot out the oiliness it looked a little on the cakey side and kind of showed …

Lipstick - GUERLAIN - 515 Dazzling Butterfly - Holiday 2008

The weird thing about this colour is that on me it looked bad and overly strong in the department store lighting, but once I got home in the natural light it looked good. I have very pale skin with a pink/blue undertone. No yellow whatsoever

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Giant Butterfly Pearls - W 2008

I like this very much. It's about time Guerlain made large sized meteorites pearls. I know they did once, years ago, with a Shalimar fragrance, but I think this is better. It's funny that the Christmas before it was tiny tiny pearls and this time it's big ones. Beautiful big silver container. I don't mind that it's cardboard. I really prefer this on my body to my face …Read more

Sometimes I don't know whether to love or hate this shop.

I'll Start with the bad stuff:

From the outside of the one near me you can see blackboard style signs below the windows with quotes from magazine and newspaper reviews such as 'this is about as natural as it gets' well let me tell you it isn't. Lush really isn't that natural at all and …

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Butterball Bath Bomb

5.0

These smell lovely but the water has to be hot enough to dissolve the little bits of cocoa butter, otherwise you have these lumps of cocoa butter floating around. May not appeal to people who are paranoid about their bath tub getting greasy, and be careful not to slip
