This mascara is OK but I wasn’t blown away. I think that this is probably because of the hype. I like the shape of the wand and it was really good for curling lashes. The pigment is very intense and it separates lashes well. However I didn’t think it was very volumising which is a big negative for me and it made my lashes feel quite dry/ crispy with flaking experienced by the end of the day.
I have never tried the Sand & Sky pink clay mask due to the price tag so I cannot comment as to whether this product is a good dupe. However I was expecting good things none the less and I was disappointed. The texture and smell of the mask is lovely and it’s great that it comes with a little brush applicator. But for me that was it. As it dried it stung and felt very tight. After washing it off my skin was red and I broke out in spots. I must add that my skin is not usually sensitive to products. I really love the effect of my L’Oreal charcoal mask and think that I might look at others in thamore...t range.
I’m not sure whether Too Faced still sell this as I had it a few years ago. It is a nice gloss that varies in shade of pink depending of the temperature. It smells and tastes nice but can be a bit messy - the applicator is quite chunky and the product sticky. You get a lot in the tube and it does the job but not my favourite.
I don’t use hairspray very much at all and bought this from the local Co-op in an emergency. It makes me think of older hairsprays before other brands brought out better (stronger hold, less crispy feeling) formulas. The smell is very chemically, like bug spray. I have thick hair and it struggled to hold curls for longer than 1/2 an hour and left my hair feeling hard and crispy.
I received this as a birthday gift after pining for a Naked palette for ages!! If buying one for myself, 3 would not have been my first choice however I really love the mixture of colours and am so glad this is the one I received. The quality of the shadows is fantastic, especially the mattes. I find myself reaching for this palette on a daily basis for a natural look. The only downside is that some of the shimmers/ glitters have quite a bit of kick back and are best used with a wet brush. I wouldn’t buy again just because I would love to try some other palettes first.
I won this in the @glamgeek competition and have mixed opinions. It’s a warm/gold toned palette and for a pale ‘English Rose’ like myself this would usually send me running for the hills. However I used it after my holiday and the bottom left, rose gold shade is absolutely perfect - with or without a slight tan. All 4 of the highlighters are subtle, but for me this is great and is the perfect everyday look I’m going for. I have said I wouldn’t buy again because it seems like a waste to just use one shade but, I’m not sure - maybe if I couldn’t find a suitable replacement for bottom left.
This is the only heat defence product I have ever used and I will continue to keep buying it. It is lightweight and the pump is amazing at dispensing the product evenly and finely. It smells lovely and makes hair feel really soft after styling. I have nothing to compare it to but I know it works because I can see such a difference to when I don’t use it. Such a good price for plenty of product too!
