Not too pricey and honestly, for a lipgloss like product, lasts better than typical lipstick. It really does last all day, feels super moisturizing, the colour is bright and wears well throughout the day (with eating and drinking on top). I'd say the only issue is the lipgloss itself is kind of sticky, where you top and bottom lip kinda sticks together. If you don't mind that then I'd highly suggest this but if that's obviously and issue then no.
Firstly, you can usually buy a 400ml on sale for like £2 and it lasts months. Secondly, it's simply great. It removes my make-up quickly (only need 1 or 2 pads unless I've used glitter). It's never left a weird residue on my skin, I've never reacted and it's never made my skin dry or oily. Overall, I'd highly recommend this product for both price and quality.
Been using this for a good while (thanks to the constant samples they give out) and it's simply an ok mascara. Definitely wouldn't buy for the price they want. My bottom lashes look great (i have quite long bottom lashes though) but my too lashes leave more to be desired. It doesn't seem to lengthen or thicken your lashes, it simply darkens. Would say it's a good for more natural looks or if your lashes are already long/thick. Don't apply more than 2 coats though as it can get clumpy quickly.
I don't understand the other review stating that the pigmentation could be better. My palette is amazing, the black is the best and blackest black I have ever used! The shades are gorgeous for creating a natural look and a smoky night time look! Fair bit of fallout with the black but it's to be expected with the amount of pigmentation. Great sized mirror and great for travel due to the size. Highly recommend.
I received this as a winner in the 'Most Wanted Palette' and I'd like to say thank you again! I love this palette, I used it straight away after receiving it and twice again. The packaging (both the box and actual product) is fantastic and the palette is sturdy. You get a good sized mirror which is fantastic if you travel a lot or perhaps like to move around the room to see yourself better. The shades are all creamy and pigmented and you get a wide range. You get what I'd say is one highlight, one base, and the rest you can mix and match. The one thing I want is an actual pure red shade!
This concealer is amazing for spot concealing or covering redness etc. However, for underneath the eyes it's a definite no-no, at least for me. It is lightweight and does have great coverage but if you have ANY fine lines they concealer WILL settle into them almost instantly. No matter if I apply a tiny amount, a lot, set it for pressed powder, set it with loose powder, blend with a beauty blend, blend with a brush - this will just settle into my fine lines. I use shade Fair Neutral which is perfect for me. Just a shame I can't conceal my under eyes with it.
Overall the palette is really nice. Nice variation of shades with a mix of textures (shimmer, matte etc.). I find the 'nude' shades are very nice, blend well, easy to build coverage. The baked shades are highly pigmented and work great with the given shades. I find it's the darker shades which let this palette down as they're not as pigmented on a brush but overall it's a good palette and great for beginners! The brush inside is nothing special but it's always nice to have a brush included :)
Looks fantastic underneath foundation and you can only need a small amount to add that glow! Foundation sits on top of it well (no caking or anything) and teamed with a powdered highlight looks amazing. Has a gold finish though which may not suit cool undertones.
I've used nearly the while thing now and I have to say this feels really moisturising, yet doesn't actually seem to moisturise your lips. Very thick and feels like a lip gloss but you have to use it constantly all day to feel any effect. Prefer my Body shop lip balm which is slightly cheaper. Shame as Elemis products are usually amazing.
