      Advantages

      • "Keeps your eyeshadow on all day"
      • "Works super well"

      Disadvantages

      • Pricey

      Great quality item but pricey

      The first time I used this, I was given it as a gift, and I practically cherished the thing. I didn't buy it the first time, but I went back later and bought it myself. A little goes a super long way. One dot or two and I can practically get both eyes. I helps so much to get those creamy eyeshadows to blend perfectly. But, sometimes when you use cheap eyeshadows with it, it does make it super patchy, and we all know how we feel about that. I once used this five dollar palette with it to see if it would help it blend better, but it actually made it worse. You have to let it dry completely too if you want it to work. Make sure you really massage it into your eyelid and use good brushes. Your fingers won't do. You can use shadows like maybe line nudes and such that run about ten dollars, and it'll work just as well as using two-faced peach palette or smashbox. It is super pricey for the little bottle, but a little does go a long way, like I said. With a great primer does come a great responsibility. Better products work with better products. You have to use good quality products to get great results. The end result is of it stays on for the entire day and looks good beginning to end. Truly, this product does do that and it's worth the money you're willing to spend.

      Advantages

      • "Get what you want"
      • "Built to spec"

      Disadvantages

      • "Lead time can be long"

      Very good company and very satisfied with my order.

      I went to PCSpecialist as I wanted a fairly well specced gaming laptop with a large screen. Looking at other well known PC companies I was going to pay a lot of money to get sort of what I wanted. My other route was to buy the parts and build my own but having never done this I would rather pay someone who really knows what they are doing to build it for me. PCSpecialist allowed me to specify exactly what I wanted, checked the specification to ensure that all components would work together correctly, and then built it and shipped it to me at a much lower price than other well known PC companies.
      The time between placing my order and receiving it was just under 2 weeks. During this time I was kept informed of the status of my order from it being received to gathering components to buiding then testing and QA and finally shipping.
      Delivery was by DPD and they let me know what was happening to the parcel during its route through their network, as did PCSpecialist. I was able to take a late lunch from work so that I could be in to receive delivery due to the accurate timings that DPD gave me.
      Overall I had no problems with my order and the next time I, or any one I know, wants a high spec PC or Laptop I will definitely use them or recommend them again.
      They cannot compete on price for bog standard PCs and laptops, but that is not why you get a PC built to order. For high spec PCs they are very good both on proce and service.

      Disadvantages

      • "The bin is quite heavy when full"

      These bins are good value for money, essential in any household.

      These bins are ideal in the kitchen. They are compact,very sturdy, easy to clean and they take quite a bit of waste. The bins do get quite heavy when full, however the handles make it easier to lift them. They are also damage restistant, in the sense that they don't dent easily if knocked over. They are also water resistant, so if they get wet they will not get damaged quickly. I have two of these in my kitchen, one for recycling, the other for household waste. I have had mine for almost 3 years now and they are still as good as new

      On the face of it a James Bond spoof starring Rowan Atkinson should have been very good. It wasn’t, Johnny English a real stinker. The base humor completely missed its target audience as Rowan presented Mr Bean not Mr Bond. This is Britain’s finest and most articulate and intelligent comedian that bought us Blackadder’, after all? Surely he could mix in some Edmond Blackadder and that public school pompous genius humor for the Bond send up? It was a chanced missed to make a brilliant remembered comedy movie the way the Python boys and girls did, presenting us with a silly version of his Barclaycard commercials from way back then. Interestingly, Both Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English) and co-sat Rosamund Pike here made their film debuts in Bond films, the former in Never Say Never Again (1983) and the latter in Die Another Day (2002). Atkinson, ironically, played an inept agent in Never Say Never Again. So would lessons be learnt and Johnny English: Reborn be any good?

      Daniel Kaluuya ... Agent Tucker
      Miles Jupp ... Technician
      Pik Sen Lim ... Killer Cleaner (as Pik-Sen Lim)

      ===Plot===

      After a bungled operation in Mozambique, where their entire royal family and Prime Minister were wiped out under MI6’s protection, Agent Johnny English (Rowan Atkinson), stripped of his Knighthood, disappeared in shame and ended up at a Buddhist monk temple in Tibet, using the time, to be fully trained in Monk martial arts, five long years of solitude. But a new department, MI7 ( sponsored by a Japanese technology company), headed by Pamela Stokes (Gillian Anderson), want English back in London with his license to kill reactivated, preferably not to use on the people he is protecting this time.

      With the help of fellow agent Simon Ambrose (Dominic West), quartermaster Patch Quartermain
      (Tim McInnerny a.k.a Captain Darling) and sexy behavioral psychologist Kate Summer (Rosumund Pike), English is bought up to speed and reassigned to Honk Kong, where there is a plot to kill the Chinese Premier, Agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya) his right hand man and support.

      English first lead is ex CIA Agent Titus Fisher (Richard Schiff), who is killed when he hands English an exotic metal key. Fisher mentions a shadowy group called ‘Vortex, before a sniper takes Fisher out. English, of course, loses the key and it falls into the wrong hands, one of three smart keys needed to activate a secret weapon.

      Various people get killed as English, as expected, bungles his away around the world looking for the keys, Vortex and the secret weapon, always a fag paper away from being fired again in disgrace.


      ===Results===

      The huge problem with the Johnny English thing is it’s not aimed at kids or adults, somewhere in-between, the sort of people who watch the One Show, a movie for idiots. And that’s the story of Atkinson’s wasted talent on the big screen. What the film really needed was an injection of comedy that plays to Atkinson's strengths - and some decent writers. He's a funny guy, but this material just isn't worthy of him. If Ben Elton and Richard Curtiss had got hold of this then who knows. I think Ricky Gervais and co should write the third film, rumored to be coming in 2018. More of the same of this lame parody will make money though, Johnny English costing $40 million and doing $160 million back, Reborn costing just $5 million more and also doing $160 million. The franchise certainly needs refreshing though.

      It’s frustrating watching this as the humor is just not clever enough. Again, imagine if the latest Edmond Blackadder was Bond. It’s disappointingly dumbed down to target the lowest common denominator and widest multiplex audience. The Americans did it way better with spoof films like Spy and Austin Powers, as they are now with the Bond spy genre with Bourne and Mission Impossible films.

      There are one or two mildly funny bits but not enough to recommend. It’s not as bad as the first film but still pretty flat. I tried to laugh and watched the film all the way through. It’s been ten years since I saw the first one and hoping it was not as bad a franchise as I thought it was. I’m still baffled why it’s so bad to be honest. Unless Ricky G does the third film I am out.

      ===Trailer===

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1634122/


      ===Special Features===

      Blue Ray option has some good extras on it. The film is definitely improved by a Blue Ray presentation as it is an action movie with plenty of chase scenes and explosions. Sound is excellent and very sharp and plenty of ratio options to enjoy the film.

      -Deleted Scenes-

      Quite a few as the director must have hated some of the stuff he was told to put on screen.


      -Behind the Scenes-

      Straightforward one with most cast & crew involved, including Rowan. He didn’t say what he thought of the film and so the cheque must have been big.

      -Goofs 7 Bloopers-

      I’m not a fan of them and these feel forced.









      ===Critics===
      Tribune –‘English Reborn" isn't terrible and is certainly seriously harmless...But it does remind one of the glorious past and the potential Atkinson never realized in his movies, even the hit ones’.

      New York Post –‘It would seem to appeal mostly to hard-core fans of the "Mr. Bean'' star and children who laugh at the sight of men being repeatedly kicked in the groin’.

      Movies.com –‘Just a reasonably steady stream of closed-mouth chuckles over comic incidents designed for that laziest little compartment of your brain’.

      Screen It –‘ While I wouldn't recommend paying full admission price, you could do worse flipping past it on a rainy Saturday afternoon at home while looking for family entertainment.

      NY Times –‘It's banal to the point that kids at the film's New York press screening were apparently bored out of their minds.

      Deadspin –‘ This is not the highest level of comedy, or even the highest level of effort from everyone involved, but at least they get out of the way and let the man work’.

      Advantages

      • "Moisturises skin"
      • "Great value for money"

      Disadvantages

      • none

      A faultless product and suits to every skins .. its amazing,,

      I normally use shower gel or soap from Lush, The Body Shop or Soap & Glory but bought a set of Dove miniatures for travel purposes. One of the products was the Beauty Care Body Wash.

      This body wash comes in a white plastic bottle like the majority of the Dove range. It is described as being 'triple moisturising' with ¼ moisturising cream. It has a light fresh scent and is white in colour. On the Boots website the price is shown as £2.37 for 250ml, so it's really good value for money
      The product itself has a pleasant scent and is quite thick. It doesn't lather much, but enough to make you feel clean without feeling harsh. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and clean, and rinses very easily. I find myself using quite a bit of this product each time I use it, not because I feel I need loads, but because it feels fantastic.
      The body wash has a creamy consistence and can be applied well. The skin feels soft and smooth after use, the body wash leaves a pleasant and fresh feeling on the skin. The body wash allows a soft and well cleaning. The body wash moisturizes and cares for the skin.

      The body wash has a gentle floral scent, that cannot be noticed after use.

      I can recommend the Dove Silk Glow body wash, as it cares for the skin. The body wash leaves a fresh feeling on the skin.

      Advantages

      • "while using it cleans impurities "
      • "Rich and creamy"

      Disadvantages

      More beautiful skin from a body wash?Absolutely.

      It smells lovely and fresh and would be suitable for all the family. I can smell it on my skin for a long time after using it and my skin does feel soft and hydrated. I do feel that I am giving my skin the best care by using this product as I know that I am not using any chemicals or unnatural ingredients..Use daily for soft, smooth skin. Skin is visibly more beautiful in just 1 week. And with continued use, see even better results in 3 weeks. Moisturizers that occur naturally in the skin.
      The crème itself is white in color and thick and creamy. It is thicker than the Dove Nutrium Body Washes. And I think it lathers better as well. I am glad that it rinses off easily and it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth after bath. It gave the same soft feeling as that of regular Dove soaps but I felt that this is more moisturizing. My skin has becomedrier with winter and with the body wash I have used prior to this Dove Crème Body Wash. My thighs are a bit rough and dry and I do hope to get some help with this Dove wash. With 2 weeks of use, I noticed that my rough spots are reduced and my skin over all is definitely less dry as well

      I love Dove for the quality if gives in an affordable price. I got my 200ml Dove Visible Care Softening Crème Body Wash for $3 only. I trust this bath crème during winter season and I expect that this will perform better during the summer when I am less dry.

      Advantages

      • "good to show off"
      • "so much fun"

      Disadvantages

      • "sometime stucks"

      It helps me to do anything that i want .

      I own a '01 Rancher 4x4 ES and I love it, I can go throught just about anything and not get stuck. The machine is great for immpressing freinds. I have gotten pretty good at handling it, i can do side wheelies and just regular ones holding both for a good amount of time. I?m also good at jumping it for the terrain i got. All put aside it?s a great ATV for all purposes, from is 4wd to its intermediate power this ATV will take you anywhere you can go. Sometimes isn't fun having 4 wheel drive and I do wish there was a switch to turn it off but other than that it is a great machine.. Many people worry about the ES (electronic shift) feature and how reliable it is. Mine has had no problems and I put it through alot of mud, stress, strain...etc It is actually a great feature because it will save the life of your transmission by not allowing you to put the ATV in gear while it is revved but that is Four-wheel drive (4x4) comes standard on this Honda, sending power to all 4 wheels when necessary for better traction and stability. The 4WD is part-time or "on-the-fly," giving you manual control from the handlebar of whether you're in 4x2 or 4x4 mode. Keep it in 2WD on paved roads and over mild terrain to save fuel and preserve the differentials, then pop it in 4WD right before the going gets rough In addition to those great features, the all-new 2014 Ranchers feature a thicker, softer seat for increased comfort, a bigger fuel tank for those long days in the saddle and bigger front disc brakes to help slow you down!\

      Advantages

      • ""timer and battery""
      • ""cleans effectively""
      • "" holds charge well" "

      Disadvantages

      • ""Only one brush head supplied""

      A reasonably priced and effective and efficent toothbrush !

      I have been thoroughly impressed with how well this cleans my teeth, leaving them looking white and fresh with no visible sign of any plaque build-up. The brush head oscillates from side to side incredibly quickly which does make this model quite noisy, however, but it is far from uncomfortable in spite of the speed and the larger brush head. I do suffer with sensitive gums occasionally but haven't experienced any bleeding or discomfort as a result of switching to this brush. The only other added feature is the inclusion of a pressure sensor which indicates if too much pressure is being used.

      I paid £21.99, reduced from the full RRP of £59.99. This model is still available from Amazon but is currently listed for over the £30 mark. I'd happily recommend this brush to anybody looking to replace their current mode

      Oral-B TriZone 1000 is a triple-action, deep cleaning toothbrush designed around the way you naturally brush Elevate your brushing experience and remove up to 100% more plaque* with the Braun Oral-B TriZone 1000 electric toothbrush. The revolutionary technology behind the TriZone 1000 combines the familiar brushing motion of a manual brush with the comprehensive power of advanced triple zone cleaning action to give you a long-lasting clean, fresh feeling. With 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 sweeps per minute, the TriZone 1000 provides an efficient and effective whole-mouth cleaning.* Each Oral-B toothbrush head comes with a coloured ring that fits on to the base of the replacement brush head. These rings come in a variety of colours allowing you to distinguish between different people?s brush heads if using the same toothbrush handle. The Triple Zone experience The first of its kind, the brush head of the TriZone 1000 is divided into three cleaning zones to keep your teeth and gums healthy:
      We've been using Oral B toothbrushes for a number of years, with this Trizone 1000 being the latest purchase. The toothbrush came supplied with a slimline charging unit, compatible with other Braun toothbrushes and just a single Trizone brush head. Replacement brush heads can be pricey so this is a bit of a disappointment.

      The charger has a standard two-pin end but we use a cheap adapter so that it can be charged via a mains socket. I find that it lasts for around three days when used twice daily by the two of us.
      My only gripe with this brush is that there is no feature to clean your tongue after a brush so I still use a manual brush for that as my mouth feels much fresher once the tongue has been cleaned. However, after looking at the Oral B site it seems there are more expensive brushes with that feature ? though for the price I think I?ll just stick with my aldi toothbrush!

      Advantages

      • "morals questioned that makes this a truly thoughtful novel"
      • "compelling and inspiring story"
      • "wonderful characters"

      Disadvantages

      One of the most amazing books I have ever or will ever read!

      To Kill a Mockingbird is one of those completely unique and amazingly thoughtful books that has remained a relevant and beautiful piece of literature, and will remain that way for many years to come. This novel tackles real moral questions and you will finish the book having had a real glimpse into life in a less tolerant time.
      This is the story of Atticus Finch, a lawyer who defends a black man who has been accused of a crime he did not commit. Reading this now is quite shocking, because we live a significantly more tolerant time than when the book is set. Reading about people’s attitudes, not only to African-Americans at the time, but also those who defend them.
      Harper Lee chose to have Atticus Finch’s 2 children (Scout and Jem Finch) be at the centre of the book, with the youngest, Scout being the narrator. This is a really pensive way to write this type of book, because it allows the readers to see such a truly saddening and real situation from the most innocent perspective. Children. To see how it affects the children, and how they come to view their father throughout the book, as he does something that everyone around them is telling them is wrong. There was no better way he could have written this book.
      I can honestly say that this book made me cry, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. It is so beautifully written and poignant. If you are thinking of reading this but aren’t sure, you should read it, because it will be one of the most satisfying reading experiences of your life.

      Advantages

      • "android system is always better"
      • "lovely looking phone"
      • "really easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "battery runs out rather quickly"
      • "apps shut down unexpectedly "
      • "scratches easily"

      brilliant and easy to use smartphone for anyone

      This phone was bought on a whim. I didn’t really know much about it, mostly I picked it because of how nice it looked. The slim body and beautiful exterior gives the phone and professional and stylish look. Unfortunately, that beautiful exterior does tend to get scratched and the shiny surface on the back does fade after a while. If you’re thinking of buying this phone, I would definitely suggest buying a decent case for it as well.
      The user interface on this phone is great. It is really simply to use. After having the phone for less than a day, I knew exactly how everything worked and didn’t feel the need to ask family/friends or google anything about how to work the phone. For people who don’t have time to sit and work out in painstaking detail exactly how each thing on your phone works, I would recommend HTC’s (other HTC’s I have had in the past have been just as user-friendly)
      Another reason I always go for HTC’s or Samsung’s, etc. Is because these phones use an android operating system. in my view, android is far superior to any other phone operating system (e.g. Apple). It has more apps and is more user friendly. I had difficulties using an iPhone when I did buy one (peer pressure), so androids are always the go to phones for me. If you have had problems with, or simply don’t like the user interface of other phone types, android is something I would definitely recommend.

      Advantages

      • "reading simply and easy on this"
      • "good sized screen"

      Disadvantages

      • "dust/ finger marks show up on screen too easily"
      • "screen slightly too reflective"

      Excellent for reading and apps, but lacking in other ways

      The Kindle Fire HD is an adequate device for its purpose. The screen is a good size for both reading books and any other activities that you can do on it. For example – watching TV, or playing games. (Sims on the kindle is perfect, as I found my phone slightly too small for these types of interactive games).
      Reading is made for your comfort, with settings to adjust the screen’s colour, text size, etc. It also allows you to highlight sections and check definitions of words (with built in dictionary). Simply, for those who enjoy reading on a kindle, this is very useful. However, if you only like reading and have no interest in apps, or video streaming, then a Kindle fire of any kind would be a waste to buy (stick with a regular kindle).
      I have issues with the screen in that it is slightly too reflective, despite me buying it with assurances of anti-reflect technology. This makes reading or video streaming difficult outside or even by a window. I have found the need to shut curtains when looking at something in dark colours. In the light, dust and finger marks show up very clearly. This is not very fun for someone trying to use it. I bought a cover for it and still dust settles and then leaves finger marks when you try to remove it.
      To be honest, if you asked me if I would buy this kindle again, my answer would be no. however, if any of the good qualities I have mentioned fit with what you desire from a kindle, then by all means purchase this.

      Advantages

      • "Brilliant sound quality "
      • "Great quality picture"
      • " etc."
      • " Youtube"
      • " Amazon Prime"
      • "Great for watching Netflix"

      Disadvantages

      • "size makes it slightly too small to watch from across the room"
      • "Internet doesn't always work"

      Good investment, despite my own personal issues with it

      I was always slightly reluctant to buy a smart TV, however when I sold my Xbox, I needed some way to watch Netflix and other video streaming applications. I was pleasantly surprised with how well I got on with this smart TV. I’m not exactly a buff when it comes to technology, but this TV was extremely user-friendly.
      Turning on the TV to watch Netflix, YouTube, or Amazon Prime, was so easy and quick – with no long-winded setup required (3 button pushes and you’re in!)
      The HD quality picture is outstanding and fills the entire screen. The TV hardly buffers at all, making the HD quality picture constant whatever and wherever you’re watching something.
      The sound quality is outstanding for a small TV. The sound travels very far in all directions, without the need to surround sound systems. The sound is clear and crisp, making watching anything from movies to music ridiculously easy. My father is slightly dead in one ear, yet he says he finds no trouble hearing the sound from my TV down the hall, on as low a volume as 10/100.
      My only grievance with this television is that the applications (Netflix, etc.) require a good internet connection. I have found that my TV disconnects from the internet occasionally, forcing me to input the Wi-Fi password again. Now, I am not saying that this happens with all these TV’s. all I can say is that the internet only ever disconnects on this TV and not any other device I own. I don’t know whether this is due to my internet connection, or the individual TV itself, or even just my rotten luck. I thought it was worth mentioning.
      Overall this TV was an investment I don’t regret, despite any issues I may have with it, because in my opinion, the positives far outweigh the negatives.

      Refreshing horror view of vampires and one to read (and read again)

      This book is absolutely spectacular and one of my favourites. Although I only gave it 4 stars, I can assure you that this book is one that I loved reading the first, second and even third time I read it, and one I would not hesitate to read again. Salem’s Lot was the first of Stephen King’s works that I read, and it single handily made me a lover of King’s works for the rest of my life.
      The characters themselves were written so beautifully. Stephen King managed to make people with rather mundane existences into vibrant and fascinating characters that fitted into this fantastical horror novel perfectly. Each character slotted perfectly into their roles, and when things started to go awry, you feel empathy for these characters as if you knew them.
      Ben Mears, who when you first begin the book, is perceived as the main character (and appears to be from the blurb of the novel). He returns to his childhood town after being plagued by nightmares, only to find a completely different horror awaiting him. Although he stands out as a key player in this novel, there are many other characters who the story focuses on and subsequently brings to life.
      However, the sheer number of characters’ present in the novel leads to the inevitable outcome that some characters are easily skimmed over, and not shown in much detail. This is an issue, because when they are mentioned later in the book, it is easy to forget who they are. Basically, this book is not for light reading.
      The plot itself was very gripping, and when reading you find yourself desperate to know the ending, while at the same time not wanting to finish such an engrossing novella.
      This horror classic, although it came out in 1975 (being Stephen King’s 2nd novel), it is still highly relevant and feels new. When reading, I certainly would have never of guessed that it was written over 40 years ago. Feeling like a contemporary novel, “Salem’s Lot” is a refreshing change from the over romanticised vampires we see today. The darkness and horror of this story makes it both the stuff of nightmares and a stunningly memorable read.
      The ending of this book was one of the best endings that any book I read has ever had. Unlike most books, who go with the cliché ending along the lines of “they lived happily ever after...” Or at least, something along those lines; this book set up a mystery with the ending that will give you chills. I don’t want to give too much away. So I’ll just say that this book told a story and the ending turned the outcomes of that story into folklore and would frighten even the bravest of men.
