Love this bronzer.

Packaging is great, colour is very natural, smells good (like chocolate) and it lasts for a long time (I've had it for months and months and still haven't worn the bronzer down yet.

The packaging is great because it protects the powder - no risk of smashing it in your make up bag.

The colour is very buildable and not too orange or …

Lipstick - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

Jul/28/2013

Love love LOVE these! I haven't tried the Honey colour but I have Cherish (pink) and Crush (purpley red) and they are such lovely colours and most importantly, they last on the lips!

After a few applications, the colour will still be on your lips at the end of the night although perhaps a little faded.

The only downside perhaps is they are a bit drying but I would …

Cleansers - Lancôme - GEL ÉCLAT Clarifying Cleanser Pearly Foam

2.0

Jul/28/2013

This cleanser was recommended to me by the Lancome sales person as a gentle cleanser suitable for my sensitive skin but I don't think this is suitable for sensitive skin at all!

The formula is very creamy and the tiniest amount is needed to froth right up and cover your face. This aspect of the cleanser is great because for a pricey high end product (approx. £24) this would last …

Scrubs - St. Ives - Apricot Scrub - Invigorating [DISCONTINUED]

Love this scrub - it gets the job done without being too harsh on my skin.

I currently have the tub in my shower which is great for scooping out a big amount for my whole body, however it's pretty impossible not to get a bit of water in it. The tube is really good for facial use and easier to use than the tub.

The scrub smells okay, the consistency is good and it's …

Cleansers - Garnier - Soft Complete Cleansing Milk

5.0

Apr/30/2013

I always use this cleansing milk (and the green one too) because it takes off all my make up, is super gentle, leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed and smells lovely.

It's great to grab a cotton pad and wipe my make up with this quickly without having to bother with washing my face with water at night. This does a great job and is fuss-free.

The only downside is …

Apr/30/2013

I find it very difficult to find cleansers which don't leave my face feeling tight and irritated. This cleanser is very gentle to sensitive skin and I was impressed that it did actually do what it said on the bottle.

I have recently been suffering from red dryness on my cheeks, despite having an oily t-zone and this started while I was using this cleanser. I wear quite a drying …

What a shame! After all the hype surrounding this product, I have finished a bottle and feel rather underwhelmed.

There is nothing majorly wrong with the product - it smells okay, the packaging is simple and sophisticated, the pump works well and gives the right amount of cleanser for each cleanse BUT...the cleanser I feel just doesn't really clean!

Everyone says this …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 for Combination/Oily Skin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2012

I am a fan of Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua but one of my fave beauty bloggers (Miss Glamorazzi) recommended Colourstay for combination skin. I thought I'd give it a go because despite liking Chanel, it often wears off at the end of the day and I end up with a greasy foundation nose!

Colourstay is definitely a thicker consistency and it has better coverage than Chanel, although …

Cleansers - LUSH - Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser

Sep/06/2012

I enjoyed using this cleanser at first as it was a real novelty. (For those of you who haven't seen it, the tub is full of loose crumbly ingredients which you mix with water to make a paste) But the novelty soon wears off and it's easy to lose product in the sink when trying to mix it in your hand.

The instructions say a pea-sized amount is sufficient but I felt more was …
