Absolutely LOVE this fragrance! I have many fragrances but for years, my ultimate fragrance was Jean Paul Gaultier Classique and even though I'd go ages without wearing it, I would always fall in love all over again when I wore it and it always seemed more special than all my others fragrances, even favouring it over my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. However, I think I have found another ultimate …Read more

This is a very pretty shadow that I've had for a few years now but never worn that often because, on its own, I'm not so keen. This shadow definitely leans more lilac on me and if applied alone, ends up being a soft lilac shade with shimmer, which is pretty, but I prefer more depth. I tried using it alone with MAC's Satin Taupe in the crease, but I still wasn't a fan. So I …Read more

Stunning scent! It's that time of year when I have to start thinking about getting some lighter scents as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer. I'm an oriental/spicy kinda girl, and I'm also in the UK where winter seems to drag on forever, so I definitely possess considerably more heavy-ish scents than the fresh, sparkling, summery scents. Up until about a year ago, I …Read more

This shadow is AMAZING and has become my HG gold shadow. Previously, MAC Woodwinked was my HG gold/bronze shadow and I do still love it but wow, Sahara Treasure is something else! Why can't the high-end brands make shimmer shadows like this?! This shadow is a rarity in that it's a TRUE gold with plenty of pigment but does not pull orange or green. Woodwinked always pulled slightly …Read more

I really like this product but only for cheekbones. I'm one of those who HATES a matte complexion. I love a fresh, dewy complexion all year round, therefore I do not even possess a face powder, but I have numerous highlighters for cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. I will NEVER be seen without one! I actually bought this product with the intention of using it everywhere, but I quickly …Read more

I bought this brush last week, for no major reason really but I fancied a change from my usual MAC 116 brush. I have a rounded, slightly heart-shaped face with chubby cheeks so I need a blush brush that applies colour to the apples of my cheeks only otherwise I end up looking like a clown! The MAC 116 has done that pretty much perfectly for the last year but due to its small size, the application …Read more

This is the best lip balm I have EVER tried, and as someone who not only suffers from chapped lips all year round but who also has a nasty habit of picking flaky skin off them and sometimes making them bleed, let's just say I have tried a LOT of lip balms in search of my HG! And now I've found it! When I sampled the tester for this balm in the store, I was massively impressed - the …Read more

Gorgeous complex purple/gold shimmery shadow! It's very difficult to get a decent purple these days and like many, I also do not like them to lean too cool. I have pale/medium skin with yellow undertones, brunette hair and hazel eyes so I can pretty much carry off most combinations but I always like to have a little warmth to my make-up, even when most of it is generally cool. I tend to wear …Read more

Wow, this has become my new HG crease colour! I was previously using Bobbi Brown metallic shadow in After Hours but this was LE and I cannot find it anywhere now! It was running low and then I found it smashed up in my make-up bag, so I was on a mission to find my new crease colour! I stumbled across this when looking at the normal range of Mac shadows but I was blown away by the shade and the …Read more

Absolutely beautiful scent! I am fussy about perfumes and I tend to shy away from floral, fresh scents. The only florals I tend to like are the oriental florals, ie. the ones with a bit of spice and warmth to them. Aquatic and fresh notes do nothing for me so I have bought many perfumes over the years only to discover I don't like them that much at all and they end up on eBay. This scent …Read more
