This curler is OK.

I like that it comes with spare inserts.

The reason i say its just OK is that If i take the time and use it exactley in the right way it works beautifully.

I got it cheap at the shu store in Kansai airport, Japan. It does give my lashes curl but if i use the teeniest bit too much pressure it gives my lashes a bent look with a harsh angle. And …

On my second bar, sweet and comfortingscented soft almost squidgey beige soap, studded with exfoliating husks.

Very moisturizing and an exceptional exfoliator, however can leave a greasy film- i find my rings have a film over them and it leaves a residue on the bath which is why it has lost a lippie.

Smells amazing and have repurchased in the past and probably will again …

Was bought a 200g bar for chrismas and it smells just like the topping on a christmas cake so very apt-thanks mummy!!!!

The soap is a dense off white creamy colour and very creamy under water, just a couple of swipes of my bath scrunchy produces enough rich creamy lather for my whole body -thats quite a surface area let me tell you!!!.

I have insanely dry skin (psoriasis) …

Powdery "cake" studded with an whole almond that looks and smells good enough to eat, like bakewell tart!

Dissolves easily under running water, feels cool and moisturizing between the fingers.

Produces a wealth of tight creamy bubbles lightly scented of marzipan- not so much to leave the scent lingering on my skin and not so much as to put DH off when he wants to …

On me this is a periwinkle blue- a pale -mid blue with a definite lavender tinge this is infused with fine white gold sparkles. A pretty colour and very unusual. It is quite unlike how it appears in the pan on me. I tend to use it wet as a liner and its very pretty and a doable blue looks fab with taupes and lilacs- i must have got a good pot because the texture is very good and it has a …Read more

I am on my second one of these, i normally use mineral foundation but for a few months in the winter my skin is very dry.

This is a little dark for me in the winter- perfect in the summer but it is a warm tone which works well with my complexion.

Goes on easily and evens out my skin quickly without much effort so good when i am in a rush and dont have time for …

I spotted this while on my holidays while in the US, It has adorable 50's style green/aqua cardboard box covered in white and gold facepuffs- tres elegante.

It is heavily scented- i could smell it through the cellopane. It didnt come with a puff which i was a little dissapointed about but it was cheap as chips. so i happily shrug it off.

I have highly sensitive skin …

Gorgeous Unique eyeshadow, wet look shimming platinum shade with a hint of olive green. Classy and noticable but not screaming Glittery.

Less olive than the loreal dupe- dazzling khaki and a deeper more intense wet look shade.

I like this on the outer v in a smokey eye or on top of a neutral taupe eye to transform it into a nighttime look.

It will work with cool …

Large amound of product 2.2g for the £5.00 price tag- belies the brand …

A clear liquid liner packed with really tiny silvery holographic glitter particles- really small. This was greatfor a matte eye look close to the lash line really made my eyes look fresh and awake.

The glitter is so small it almosts looks like silver shimmery liner but less of a harsh line.

Slimeline quite long brush but not quite long enough for mu tastes so i used my …
