I can't get my beloved Laura Geller Balance n Brighten anywhere in the UK. Needing a replacement quickly I decided to try this one as it seems to have been around forever and also has a pretty loyal following.

I like it and will re-purchase in the absence of B n B but it's definitely not as good. Where you get a lovely satin finish from B n B, this one is a flat matte finish …

I ordered 2 samples of this as I had heard great things about it, it’s also quite a bit cheaper than the mineral foundation I’m currently using. It’s safe to say that I really wanted this to work however it was a bit of a disaster. It sat in every line and pore and made my skin look dull and lifeless. Such a shame as it it comes highly recommended and gets brilliant reviews, it’s just not for …Read more

This looks absolutely beautiful on me, I use it as my everyday go to foundation. I use my usual concealer then buff this over the top with a kabuki brush. It is light to medium coverage but that suits me day to day on my oily combination skin. I find it sits best on moisturised skin which has been left to settle for around 10 mins. I bought N25 initially but it is slightly on the pale side …Read more

I was looking to change up my skincare and was about to order a load of Drunk Elephant stuff when I saw cheaper things suggested which ultimately do the same job. Somebody suggested this instead of the DE Peekee bar. I have to say that this is lovely, cleanses my skin and leaves it beautifully soft, no tight feeling. It also lasts a fairly good while and is a really reasonable price, I picked …Read more

Excellent moisturiser for the price, especially as it has SPF 30 in it. My skin is looking lovely with this and it is such good value for money. Will be sticking with this, performs much better than pricier brands!

It was a good job this came in a beauty calendar and I haven’t wasted my money on it is all I can say! £16 for this! Where do I start? It does look nice when it first goes on but if you are using it in your waterline then you have to go over it a few times to get it to show up.

Once on, the glitter in it falls down after a couple of hours and it smudges under the eyes! Save your …

I really don’t get the mixed reviews for this product at all, this coming from someone who’s very fussy about mascara. It gives my lashes good definition , the brush doesn’t get product all over my lid and it doesn’t smudge under my eyes at all! Can’t really ask for much more. Will be sticking with this.

I like this. Not really too much to say, you swipe it on and blend it a bit with your finger. It stays put all day and doesn’t crease but colour does fade a lot over the day. It’s a decent product but nothing remarkable.

This palette is absolutely stunning! I bought it as a treat to myself as Space NK had a £15 off promotion. It really gives you that healthy glow from within look. I don’t find it too glittery nor too dark either, I’m a Mac NC 20 for reference.

I really love this foundation, it looks truly beautiful on the skin and doesn’t sit in my fine lines or look heavy either, you do have to powder with this though. My other makeup sits beautifully on top also, I tend to use my Hourglass Ambient lighting palette with this. It isn’t the most hard wearing so I don’t wear it as my everyday foundation but prefer it for special occasions as it …Read more
