so far i really like these. i bought them without reading reviews because they were the cheapest i could find in the store and i was a bit worried about using them after seeing the rating, but i love them so far.
they got all my makeup off super well and i didn't feel like i had to rub my face extra hard for them to do their job like i've had to with other brands. i did get a …

Conditioner - Terax - Crema

I got a travel-size bottle as a gift with an online purchase so I took it with me on a holiday I took to the beach. My hair is not in great condition and the beach tends to make it so much worse but this conditioner helped me keep my hair shiny and stop it from getting coarse like it usually does around summer.

I didn't do anything special with it, I just used it like normal …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Smoked Eyeshadow Palette

Nov/23/2012

I do really like this palette but I wouldn't say it's my go-to one. The colours are very pigmented and true to what they look like in the pan (except some of the brighter looking ones appear slightly darker for me) and they apply beautifully but I do usually need to use other products with it to get a look that I feel comfortable wearing. I have done looks with just this palette but …Read more

when i first bought this colour i had mixed feelings about it, but after wearing it a few times i've decided that i really, really like it.

it's a brownish, pinkish nude colour and it does not wash me out at all. my problem with nude lipsticks is that they often make me look like i'm sick but this one has enough colour to it that it doesn't give off that effect. i …

i had a very different experience to these other reviews and was quite shocked to read them.

this is the first gel eyeliner i've ever used after having too many problems with finding the perfect liquid liner, and i love it. i don't have a very steady hand, which is why me and liquid eyeliner didn't get along very much, but with this i was able to line my eyes flawlessly …

i really, really wish i liked this more than i do. i have the liquid eyeliner and it's so easy to put on and it stays on really well, but it just doesn't come out black enough for me. it's almost like it's been diluted as it comes out quite thin and slightly streaky. after reading such good reviews i'm hoping that maybe i just ended up with a faulty one or something …Read more

this brush does shed a lot. i've been using it very regularly for a few months now and it still sheds a few hairs every time i use it. other than that it does a great job with my liquid foundation and is much better than the foundation brushes i've used, but i might go for a different brand next time just because of the shedding issues.

I cannot say enough good things about this product!

My nails had been in awful condition after some acrylics I had put on for a wedding and they had been splitting and peeling for about a year, so I bought this to try and fix them. I did the proper routine for about a week (i accidentally missed some days of putting on another coat) and that was all I needed. My nails are fine now and …

Mascara - REVLON - Grow Luscious Mascara ] [DISCONTINUED]

There's not really anything wrong with this mascara... but there's nothing right with it either. It didn't seem to do much to my lashes other than make them blacker. I'd rather go with something that makes my lashes more dramatic looking, rather than just a colour job.

This colour is absolutely stunning. It's a dark reddish pink that while it's bold enough to make an impact, it's not too much for everyday wear. I love red lipsticks but often find that they're too much if I'm not going somewhere nice, but I can see myself wearing this to more casual outings.

Great coverage and goes on smoothly. I have pretty dry lips and …
