Ins & Outs


Naked Honey Skin Salve - Really like this product. I tend to just use it on my lips. I particularly love the smell!

Nars Turkish Delight Lip Gloss - I bought this at Harvey Nics at the Mail Box last weekend and have been wearing everyday since. I have read alot of reviews of people saying it doesnt last very long on the lips. It lasts no less than any other lip gloss I own so im happy with the staying power. Also it doesnt have that funny smell that people say about, it smells of nothing to me.

Nars Ashes to Ashes e/s - I have recently wanted to try out wearing colours in my crease as im very boring when it comes to my make-up and tend to stick to the same colours all the time. I thought this would be a good colour and also its not too pigmented so its quite subtle for a "crease beginner". Would like to know of a good brush to use for the crease colour as at the mo im using a cheapo brush from H&M and its ok but not ideal.

Mac Sugarrimmed Dazzleglass - This is such a nice gloss. Its glittery but once on the lips unless you have someone standing directly in front of your face, about 1 inch away then you wont see the glitter. It looks great over Mac Creme D'Nude.

French Connection Fragrance - I love this perfume. It smells like lemon so its a very fresh scent. FC do two perfumes this one and the FCUK Fragrance (i think thats the name), the FC one is in a clear glass bottle and the FCUK one is in a frosted glass bottle. You can buy a 30ml one which fits nicely in your bag for £10 and then the 50ml (again not 100% of the size) is £15. Bargain!


Too Faced Shadow Insurance - When I first bought this it was great, my eyeshadows stopped creasing and I thought "great". However now that it is coming to the end of the tube (may be the reason why) it doesnt seem to be as effective. Also from day one its had this gone off smell, which is horrid. Im finding to that where I havent covered with eyeshadow it goes cakey and I find it quite drying.

Tigi Dumb Blonde Shampoo - There is nothing really wrong with this however my hairdresser said that the L'oreal Elvive range are just as good and when you have washed your hair it feels really soft whereas the Tigi shampoo it still feels quite tangled. If you can get as good a shampoo for half the price then you are going to!

John Frieda Dream Curls - I use the Straightening Potion in this range, the sister product to Dream Curls which I think is great. I have wavy/curlyish hair and wear it straight all the time. I thought it would be nice to have a change and bought the Dream Curls. Not good, I find it straightens my hair more than the potion does! It just pulls the curls out. I find this with alot of curl enhancing products though so could just be my hair. Wierd!

Bourjois Nail Varnishes - I just find these not very hard wearing. They cheap almost immediately. I do have to take some o fhte blame as my nails arent in the strongest condition but then I dont find this problem with my Revlon nail varnish so its a bit of a shame as Bourjois have a great collection of colours.

The Weather - I couldnt think of anymore products that I hadnt loved recently so I thought id complain about the weather. Its August and it keeps raining, very depressing :-(
