      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good fun lipstick, with nice results.

      I bought this as a 3 for 2 at Superdrug, and pretty much bought it for the laugh to see what colour it came out as. And I was pleasantly surprised!

      It looks green and pretty daunting, but comes out in various shades of pinks based on the alkaline on your lips. I like the vintage look, and was so lucky when my colour came out as a bright vivid pink/red. A few of my friends tried it and it came out as various shades of baby pink, leading down to brown/pink.

      This is a great fun product, and as a massive fan of Barry M products, I will keep using this as it does quite often change too. It only costs a few pounds, like other Barry M cosmetics, and is a good staple in your make up bag as the colour can change!

      Overall, definitely worth buying, a fun and cheap product with good effects!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Lovely make up bag staple.

        I've never normally been interested in Benefit cosmetics as they are very expensive for what they are, but this was bought for me as a gift, and I would definitely purchase it myself!

        I'm not a make up expert and I do struggly applying eyeshadows in more than one colour, but this comes with a nifty little guide showing you which colour to apply where and when to apply. It's a nice little kit that fits in your make up bag and comes with a small pair of tweezers and an eye brow gel and tinter to make them a little darker and in a good smoothed out shape.

        Being a make up novice and not being creative with my eyes at all, I find this is the best kit on the market to give me sultry smokey eyes! When it runs out I will definitely buy another kit as this has become the staple of my make up bag!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Lovely long lasting product with good shades!

        I'm useless when it comes to buying foundation, and I seem to try a new one at least once every month. TV advertising really gets me with foundation and mascara!

        I have a really light pale nude skin tone and find it quite hard to find a tone which matches, but this really works. It leaves a really nice matt finish and goes on extremely well. It covers all my flaws, as I have slightly odd shaded skin tones and a few blemishes here and there. It really lasts all day, and sometimes I find it quite hard to wash off at the end of the day with my usual face wash, so end up using a facial scrub and lots of make up remover - I think this is the sign of a good lasting product!

        On the down side, I do find sometimes it leaves my T zone very oily, which I find with a lot of foundations.

        Overall, nice tones, great coverage and overall good price!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great big bag for lots of useages.

        I'm such a fan of Paul's Boutique bags and purses. I always seem to go for matching bags and purses, which doesn't suit my bank balance! I bought this purse because of the size, the cute charms and the logo to the front.

        This is my usual work bag, it's a really large size so handy to fit a few cosmetics, books, and other bits in. There are a few compartments inside too. It has a zip fastening and has a clasp at the front. I love the individual charms which come with each of the bags.

        It's also a really good size to use as an overnight bag with just a few bits and pieces in.

        I normally go for PB bags that are a lot brighter, but I like this as it's toned down and suitable for work with still showing my individuality.

        These are quite pricey bags, and if you go the whole hog and have the matching purse, it can easily cost around £80-90.

        Gorgeous print for the fashion forward!

        I'm such a fan of Paul's Boutique bags and purses. I always seem to go for matching bags and purses, which doesn't suit my bank balance!

        I bought this purse because of the size and print. I adore leopard prints and have a penchant for skulls and flowers. This seemed the perfect alternative item to own. Perhaps the fact I have the stunning matching bag might have been the other! And I always adore the cute personalised charms which come with each product.

        The purse itself is quite large, with lots of card slots and compartments inside, along with a zipped coin slot down the middle. The outside is a stury material and is easy to wipe clean in case anything is spilled on it. With the purse being quite large, it's really useful to use as a clutch for a night out!

        The only downside is the price, but this is expected considering it is a designer item.

        Disadvantages

        Perfect durable and versatile bag for the fashion concious.

        When it comes to floral prints and Cath Kidston, I'm a bit of a sucker! I adore anything vintage looking, and this definitely fits in with the look.

        I adore this bag. The size makes it big enough to carry an A4 folder which makes it perfect for those studying. I often fill mine up with folders and books along with my lunch to work with me. It's the perfect size for carrying and you can fit quite a lot in. The straps are very durable, I find that sometimes with carrying a large folder and books the straps often come undone, but these are perfect. The bag has an oilcloth finish, much like other Cath Kidston items, which makes it so easy to wipe clean.

        I often use this as a weekend bag too, it's the perfect size - so versatile!

        Overall, this bag is fantastic for those who commute with a lot of heavy items. Or you can use it as a picnic bag, or a weekend travel bag - so versatile!

        Lovely floral print purse for the fashion concious!

        When it comes to floral prints and Cath Kidston, I'm a bit of a sucker! I adore anything vintage looking, and this definitely fits in with the look.

        The purse is very large and can also be used as a clutch for a night out. It has lots of card slots and compartments inside, and a zip coin purse down the middle. There is plenty of room for all your bits and pieces. The purse is extremely hard wearing as it has an oilcloth finish and can easily be wiped if dirty. I own many of these purses in different floral styles, and find these by far the best price for their money as they last years, along with varying fashion trends. Sometimes on large purses such as these, the zip catches, I've never had a problem with this. I find the only downside is that it doesn't fully open, but otherwise a gorgeous purse for the fashion and thrifty concious.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Lovely for home colouring!

        I rarely dye my hair at the salon as I feel it costs far too much, and I trust myself more than a stylist! I have used this product for years when I want a more normal hair colour as I do prefer very bright and extreme hair colours.

        I find this so pleasant to use, it's really easy just like all the other bottle dyes. It smells really nice and lingers for a few days like other Garnier hair dye products. It leaves the hair in lovely condition, not feeling frazzled or harsh. It claims to leave hair strengthened as it contains bamboo, and I would not disagree! I dye my hair on such a regular basis that it does feel quite weak and I have a lot of dead ends - I always find using this product seems to repair my dead ends and leaves it feeling a lot stronger than before.

        There is a great assortment of colours and quite reasonably priced!

        Lovely product that smells nice and keeps hair shiny.

        I was really happy buying this product. After dying my hair blonde and returning to dark brown, I found my colour faded very quickly and left it in bad condition looking really dull!

        I bought a few products to try to see which left my hair looking nice, with a nice shine and in good condition. I found this to be the best one I bought out of a few. The bottle is quite large and smells really nice. It lasts a long time and unlike similar products on the market, doesn't cost a fortune.

        You can use this on a daily basis, I normally use this alongside the shampoo and find these really restore my shiny brunette colour.

        Overall this is a really nice product, the bottle lasts a long time even on daily use. I find this a better and cheaper product than some of the leading brands out there, and well worth it's gold!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Nice product, great to get on an offer.

        I first decided to use this product when I dyed my hair back from blonde to dark brown, and it left it looking rather dull and feeling in quite bad condition from all the dying.

        I was really happy with this product, I did have to use quite a lot of it so the bottle didn't last that long even though it's quite a large bottle. It smells lovely and is really easy to use. It left my hair with a really nice glisten and the condition was lovely. It did exactly what it said on the bottle, and can be used on a daily basis. I generally would chose to buy this when an offer is on as it isn't the cheapest of products and can be used really quickly with the shampoo.

        Overall a nice moisturising conditioner which leaves a gorgeous glisten to the dullest of brunette hair colours.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good overall product.

        After deciding that I would keep my hair a bright red colour, I found it hard to keep the colour well protected even when I use specific colour protecting shampoos and conditioners.

        I couldn't find anything suitable for red hair and I came across this product. It smells gorgeous, of cherries, but comes out the bottle fairly thick and doesn't lather up like other shampoos so I was slightly worried it wouldn't clean product out of my hair. I was really impressed how it left my hair feeling refreshed and really clean after only using a small amount. It left my hair with a really glossy shine and a more glistening shade of red. I use this alongside the conditioner on a regular basis and it leaves my hair feeling fantastic. It's a really good price at around £3 per bottle and great when offers are on!

        Overall, a really nice product that can be used over and over again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good overall product.

        I dye my hair extremely bright and vivid colours, and even with colour protect shampoo I find this fades within a few days, so I use a lot of dry shampoo which means I don't need to wash it as often I normally would.

        I find that this product is really reasonable, it smells nice and costs a considerable amount less than leading brands of dry shampoo, and still works as effectively!

        Just have a quick spray of the powder, ruffle it through your hair and you are ready to go! The powder does come out white, so you will need to rub it in properly to make sure you aren't left with talc hair! This is a really quick and much better alternative to the old method of rubbing baby powder in to your greasy hair - and smells a lot better too. With it being in an aerosol can, you also get volume to your hair.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Lovely product that smells nice and keeps red hair shiny.

        I occasionally dye my hair bright red but have difficulty keeping it bright, and have tried many protective hair dye shampoos and conditioners in the past. I was browsing the shelves of Boot's looking for a red shampoo and conditioner, and came across this one. It wasn't very expensive and looked like it might work, so decided to give it a shot.

        I wasn't disappointed at all! It's a gorgeous smelling product and I loved it from the first time I used it. I didn't find it protected my colour, but always gave a lovely shimmer and keeps it very protected. As I dye my hair a lot, it can leave it in bad condition, but I found this restored a lot of the natural oils and kept it feeling in super soft condition, as well as leaving the colour a little refreshed and very shiny.

        Overall I'm happy with this product for the price and will keep using this.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall a good product to use.

        I found this product so easy to use to remove the bonding glue used for bonding hair extensions to the hair. I bought this for around £2.50 for a larger size bottle, which I found just about covered my head to remove the extensions.

        I found the best way to apply this was to already wet hair, and rub in a little. Then using a thin comb, try to cut the bonding glue apart and comb the extensions out. Overall, it does take quite a while to remove the hair extensions, and can roughly take 2-3 hours to remove the bonding glue properly. I have known people just to rip these out of the hair, but this is the safest albeit the longest method of extension removal.

        It is a nice product, and definitely the easiest to use for removing bonding glue although it doesn't smell the nicest and isn't the quickest method! Definitely best to protect your hair.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Wouldn't recommend this really!

        I dye my hair very frequently and always need a good pre-lightener to make my bright colours more extreme. I have used this product a few times and wasn't overall enthralled by it. I have used various makes of pre-lightener and didn't find that this one really lightened the hair much and wasn't strong enough, despite leaving this on for around an hour a time.

        It was very easy to apply unlike some pre-lightening products, and didn't leave my hair in bad or frizzy condition. It may be that you need to apply this product a couple of times to get it light enough to apply a light colour or another bleach as it left my hair fairly orange.

        The price is quite cheap and overall fair for the product at around £3. If you want something that will give a more drastic bleaching, I wouldn't recommended buying this, and probably investing in something a little more expensive.
