*shakes fist* WHY CHANEL, WHY MAKE THIS LE?! I have already bought 2 of these, and am looking for a third one. It quite simply is the most beautiful contouring powder I have come across. I am NC15 and did not make a habit of contouring as I was unable to find one that worked well with my skintone. Bronzers generally looked dirty or muddy on me. When Chanel brought this product out, I literally …Read more

This is a great red/orange...and it is suprisingly wearable. I was searching for a colour like this after seeing scarlett johannsons look at one of the awards nights where she paired a colour like this in the crease with a grey/blue on the lid. Not sure what exact colour she used, but this looks close. Unlike many of MACs other e/s, this one is nicely pigmented and blends out easily. Not one I …Read more

This product wreaked my skin more than any other skincare product I have tried. For the first few days it felt nice and absorbed well, but on about day 4 - 5, I noticed my face was breaking out in red blotches, whiteheads and clogged pores galore. Ive never had such an extreme reaction to something before, and it has taken a long time to dissipate since going back to my Avene moisturiser. I would …Read more

This is a beautiful deep blue. I love the complexity of the colour and the texture is one of the better ones MAC has produced. I often pair this with MAC brick in the crease for a burnt orange/deep blue eye (fyi brown eyes, NC15). A great MAC shadow!

Such a gorgeous colour! it is exactly the colour I was hoping it would be. The texture, finish and application are a dream...one coat gives you a super opaque navy blue. Like others have previously said, it is dark, but not so dark that it looks black. You can definately tell it is a navy blue. Perfect, perfect, perfect! my HG blue nail polish

Unfortunately this foundation just did not work for me. I have combo to oily skin and whilst I loved the coverage and how easy this was to blend (I'm looking at you, pro longwear) I was an oil slick within an hour and it started to slide on my face within a few hours and look patchy. Dewy never looks or stays dewy on me unfortunately so I would not rec this foundation unless you are on the …Read more

I must admit I was really disappointed with this colour. in the tube, it looks like a deepened burgandy purple-y colour, but on my lips, this pulled very fuschia-pink. I do wear it but never by itself, only after deepening it with another lipstick or liner underneath. Whilst I found the colour disappointing, the formula is great, so no complaints there. I would just advise people to be careful as …Read more

this was a huge disappointment. I love purple blush, and was so excited when I saw this was coming out. Even Temptalia's less-than-glowing review didnt put me off. BUT she was right. This is chalk-tastic, sheer and pretty much unworkable. It is nearly impossible to use without getting some of the pink heart on your brush (which then changes the colour), goes on unevenly and is so sheer …Read more

I am so suprised by the reviews on here on this product! I am an absolute nail polish noob, but i loved the look of this polish in the adverts i had seen and decided to swap for it. I have short short nails, and prefer dark colours like purples and blacks although i hardly wear nail polish because im too lazy for upkeep lol. When this arrived, it looked beautiful in the bottle but for me, it …Read more

Wow. This blush is incredible. NC15 here, swapped for this on a whim, and when I received it, I doubted it could look any good given the colour in the pan (cherry red) but BOY was I mistaken. As others have said, it is horrific if you overdo it (and it is incredibly easy to overdo) - Im still struggling with application, but i think that tapping the brush lightly onto the colour, then tapping off …Read more
