These are so good that I could easily chuck away the rest of my vast eyeshadow collection and not miss any of them. I don't even need primer as they don't fade and dont budge all day. Lovely smooth, well pigmented and easy to blend eyeshadow. They don't have fall out either. Yes the palettes are pricey but if you break it down then they are quite reasonable and well worth investing …Read more

Ok, let's not kid ourselves, Im not young and totally wrinkle free. I was scared of illuminating imperfections of which there are too many.
This stuff is great on my oily skin. You need to apply quickly because it sets quickly. It will not budge. That fact that it is very sheer is part of why it is soo good. No chalkiness or sparkly bits.
I apply all over the upper eye area and on …

The curious creature that I am I had to find out more about this foundation as everyone seemed to rave about it. I was my usual sceptical self. I managed to buy a couple of mls off EBAY to give it a test. I was pleasantly surprised!
I found the perfect shade for my pale olive complexion and a foundation that doesnt slide off my skin after an hour or two. Its easy to apply but dont hang about …

This is my new summer foundation. I wear a high spf sunblock all year round on face, neck and hands. I could tan if I so chose but I dont so I fake a sunkissed look. Shade 6 is perfect for doing just that on my pale olive complexion. I love how sheer it is. If I need a bit of coverage then I apply concealer there. Its pricey but I think this will last me a couple of years. Looking natural is very …Read more

When I saw the notes I was immediately cautious. Im always wary of fragrance with suede or leather notes. What a wonderful surprise. It opens with the citrus and rose. The suede note works really well here and is not oppressive. The orris root and amber are perfectly measured. The orris not making it too cold or the amber to sweet and unctuous. It stays bright and totally feminine. Its my go to …Read more

I was upset when I heard this fragrance was discontinued. It must be that my chemistry really agrees with this fragrance since there dont seem to be many fans on here. I have a big collection of fragrance and this is still in my top 10. Its the most seductive tobacco/white floral. Its not too sweet but just beautifully balanced between the smokey incense and the hypnotic fragrance of night …Read more

Stunning juice. On me this is a close dupe for Tom Fords Plum Japonais. It is only just a bit less on the plum. I love this stuff. I cant afford TF Plum but I can this. It is powerful and lasts for many hours. Sweet, intense spicey pluminess. Over time it evolves further an smells very like SL Ambre Sultan. This is a sophisticated fragrance for worldly women and not girls. My go to winter scent …Read more

Wow! this fragrance is glorious. I love fragrance and this is in my top 5 with FM Portrait of a lady. A gorgeous silky sweet orange blossom, cocoa and myrrh heaven. I receive more compliments from this than any one of my 200 or so fragrances. Its pricey but my doesn't it last and the sillage is moderate.

Gorgeous ambery incense loveliness. I would not call it powdery but its not heavy either if you see what i mean. Perfect to wear in cold weather. It has good sillage and easily lasts all day. Fantastic value for money.

This is the perfect cold weather rich indulgent fragrance with citrus, bergamot, Indonesian patchouli, cocoa, labdanum, vanilla, texan cedar, sandalwood and vetiver. It is clearly dominated by citrus top notes and mega doses of patch, vanilla and chocolate. I have to say there is a vague similarity with Shalimar with the opening notes but only briefly. Its all socket it to you patch, labdanum and …Read more
