Lipstick - Bourjois - Docteur Glamour

I've never tried any other lip product quite like these - they're very creamy in texture without being at all glossy. I'd say the pigmentation is quite heavy; despite some reviewers comparing Docteur Glamour to tinted lipbalm I find the colour payoff to be much stronger.

They aren't *that* moisturising (personally I layer with Bourjois' Baume Ensoleille) but at …

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - sweet jelly sheer lipgloss in Jelly Baby

Jan/25/2008

Might as well do a quick review on this one...pretty much agree with the previous review, you can only see a very slight hint of pink with this one and I have unpigmented lips. However I can't give jelly baby any less than 4...cos it actually tastes like jelly babies! Yum yum...and the texture is completely non-sticky without being too thin. Also they're about £3 if I remember rightly …Read more

Is a definite 'meh' (if there is such a thing?!) for me. For starters it doesn't help that I bought this in W1 when I usually veer more towards pink/blue tones....but Asda (okay, so I left my make-up bag at my sister's and had to emergency shop with my boyfriend in the supermarket. Did not want to buy any more liquid foundations as already have, erm, at least 6 unstarted and 5 …Read more

Good news, pale girls...if you find Teint Innocence too sheer then shade 05, faience is as pale, if not paler in Mat Lumiere, making this Chanel's second foundation suitable for those ghostly-of-face :)

Further to my review of TI, i've decided that the yellowish (well, my by neutral/cool standards) shade is actually very flattering (photographic evidence, overrides all) …

I remember testing this 3 years ago in a department store in Brighton and exclaiming, 'cork grease!' (woodwind instrument players will understand) - cue sniffy outraged look from SA...though at the same time, it's not all that bad. I just remember being surpisied at the smell more than disgusted.

I'll maybe update this after i've refereshed my memory.

I bought this in rose vitamine, my first foray for a long time into the world of warm lip colours...and I love it! It's a pretty peachy pink shade that's reasonably opaque for a gloss - and surprisingly, it suits my v pale, cool skin, especially with a dusting of Delice du Poudre.

The staying power is, as already mentioned, pretty bad, but I like putting it on with the little …

I first smelt this on my friend a year ago whilst we were in the cinema - must have looked as if we were on a date as I kept sniffing her, hehehe. I couldn't work out what it smelt of but my nose was addicted to the stuff.

Fast forward to today - I tried Euphoria whilst shopping and yum, here we go again...only I asked my mum what she thought and she said it smelt like men's …

L'Oreal lipstick...only with no visual effect. Boring, pointless smell - I can't even pick out the rose - which was very disappointing as I love rose scents and was hoping to add this to my list :( Never mind, lighter on the purse I suppose.

♥♥♥ I love this product :) My skin was webbed, thin, lined and papery and generally very upset after BHA indulgence - no matter how much Nivea sensitive I slapped on, nothing happened.

So..last Sunday, I cleansed with jojoba oil, feeling sad, hopeless and frustrated as the face of a sun-worshipping, alcoholic 50 year-old with mature onset acne haunted me …

Lip Gloss - L'Occitane - Tinted lipbalm in "Blackberry"

Jul/10/2007

Arrgh! It's being discontinued?! But I only just found it!

Lovely, lovely colour on me (v pale, cool toned) if I do say so myself - it's a rich, cool, red-wine stain shade that can be applied thin for a pretty (yet as mentioned, never garish) pink tint to a thick, deep, purplish shade.

However, this is not 'purple' or even 'mauve' at all …
