It smells like its been left in a drawer too long and has "gone off"... Very disappointing and bland.
I had a sample bottle and wouldn't buy the full bottle.

I never normally wear gloss, but i love these!!! I have Fortune Cookie, which is very sheer, but adds a very polished look, Creme Brulee, slightly more pinky, and Tiramasu, a nude slightly deep pink shade, they all go on quite sheer with just a hint of colour.
They are extremely moisturising, and i like it that they don't have any minty plumping tingle, as menthol in anything will dry …

I absolutely love this oil, i use it on my face daily. I have ageing skin (im 46) and quite dry, but with this my face becomes so soft, luminous and glowy... Smells beautiful... Takes a while to sink in so i wouldn't recommend make up straight on top. I cant stop touching my skin.. It was so dry!.. Ill always buy this now.
I did try it on my hair, which was the original purpose i bought …

Its an "OK" mascara, i prefer TooFaced Better Than Sex.
I find you need 3 coats to give decent volume, and its a nightmare to remove. I always wake up with dark smudges under my eyes,no matter how well i think I've done at removing it all.. this never normally happens!

I hated this mascara!!!
It is a very very wet smudgy formula, and it clumps so badly you make a mess of your make up... It lengthens a lot, but perhaps too much... There's a lot of uneven volume at the ends of my lashes with it i have to wipe off.
Its also very very black, which i normally like, but it just looked so unnatural... I do like volumising mascaras, i love TooFaced …

I've already re bought this three times, its fabulous! I have an oily t-zone, and my chin and nose always get oily during the day no matter what. But with this, swiped on with a brush, not only does my skin look pore free and flawless, it stays all day and really keeps shine at bay!!
Smells of cucumber too, very refreshing.
Love it!!!!

I really didn't like this, wish i could return it!
It smells horrible... Its an incredibaly tiny jar for £26.. And it dries my lips out!!!
I've barely used it, but whenever i think ill try it one more time, its very underwhelming and the strong old lady scent puts me off.

Very uncomfortable formula, extremely drying. Put on the tester in Boots, and loved the colour. I was going to buy it, but after 5 minutes my lips were so dry i had to rub it off with my fingers best i could, (which was no easy task), as it was way too uncomfortable!

I bought these in the colours Pose (beautiful) and Go To... I love the colours so much, but unfortunately cant wear them, they are EXTREMELY drying, more than any liquid lipstick I've ever tried. They literally do feel like paint on the lips. A real shame about the formula being so drying, as the colours are lovely.

I wear this in No 5 Russet, i fill in my lips first with Gosh lip liner Nougat Crisp, then i outline with this and slightly fill in round the lip line for an ombre effecteffect with the Gosh lip liner showing in the middle.. Its a beautiful shade, highly pigmented, lasts ages, and just makes me feel glamorous when I've got it on!
Purchased it so many times over I've lost count.
