Yum, I love this shower oil. It starts off slightly thick and gooey and creates a warm sensation on your skin before it emulsifies and feels like silk. Do I think it has a long lasting moisturising effect - no - it’s just a joy to use. I don’t use it constantly but treat myself every now and then when I feel like I need pampering. Makes a lovely gift.

I love eyeshadow sticks and the LM ones along with Nars and Bobbi Brown are my favourites. This is long lasting and easy to apply. I draw a thick line at my lash line and blend upwards and outwards. It creates a natural defined look that lasts all day. You do need to be quick with any clean up as once set it doesn’t budge. The khaki is an unusual colour. If blended to a light wash it’s more of a …Read more

This has become my go to foundation. It’s creamy and gives a medium to full coverage on my 53 year old skin without any caking. I do apply it sparingly and usually over primer. There’s definitely a glow and it’s long lasting too. What I love is that it is dewy but not shiney. I find I barely need under eye concealer with this. I’m NW25 and B40 is just about right for me. I sometimes need to …Read more

Yes it makes lashes long thick and black. It also splatters all over brows and under eyes and is very difficult to clean up. I don’t find that it smudges once applied but it creates a real mess in the sink when trying to remove. It really isn’t worth the hassle and certainly not worth the money.

So far very good. This is lightweight and runny but with pretty good coverage, I get sufficient to even my skin tone with one pump. It looks so natural and doesn't settle into fine lines or pores. The best thing is how it feels, fresh and smooth, almost like a luxurious serum. I don't rely on foundation for skincare but this is full of goodies and maybe that's why it makes my skin …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Mushroom

This is my favourite of the gorgeous UD pencils. It's a silvery greyish taupe and makes my brown eyes pop. It's just so amazingly easy to apply, it glides on with no dragging whatsoever and then stays put all day - what more can I ask? My only gripe is that they wear quickly and need sharpening a lot. Though that's partly because I wear it so much! I think this is a colour that …Read more

I'm gutted this has been discontinued I simply love the chocolately spicy warm smell of this. It works well in hot and cold climates and for a Jo Malone it lasts pretty well, especially sprayed into a scarf. The closest I've found as a replacement us the Cologne Intense Myrhh & Tonka.

Love this, one of the creamier paint pots, the colour is a warmish beige, I find it very versatile and flattering just on its own to add a little definition and it's a great base for a brown smokey eye. I apply with my finger and find it blends easily. Looks lovely mixed with Constructivist too.

This suits my lashes which are long and curly and dark anyway, it just gives a deep black definition and separates every lash. I like the way it defines the root of the lash making them look thicker. It's also quite a wet formula so no crustiness. I'd say it's not a wow factor but it is reliable and doesn't smudge and I like the subtle definition more than big doll lashes …Read more

I'm a convert, I usually look for a medium coverage and this is definitely light but it makes my 52 year old skin look great. I've realised that I don't need much coverage, just a little help with evening skintine and a hint of colour. I use concealer (Lancôme) for my undersyes and that's enough. The texture is smoothing and the colour is perfect for summer. I'll need to …Read more
