The packaging for the lip kits are incredibly cute, and I love the quality of the packaging. The first lit kit I bought and used was Candy K, which was a bit too dark for my skin color. I am very fair skinned and while the coloring is beautiful and reminds me of a light caramel color, it really didn't look good with my skin tone. Koko K, however, looks perfect. It's a light pink with lots of pigmentation that looks great on. I highly suggest using the lip liner and spreading it all over your lips before applying any of the lip kits because it helps the color last longer. With So Cute, I typically put on either the Candy K liner or NYX's "Pink Cantaloupe" lip liner.
The lip kits tend to be a bit drying, but it's nothing that a bit of Vaseline or lip gloss wont help. The lip gloss is very, very sticky and takes a while to dry down, so make sure you don't eat/drink anything for a bit unless you want to reapply it immediately.
Overall, I'm a fan of the pigmentation in all three of my products. I wish the product weren't so dry (lip kits) or sticky (lip gloss) and there could be a happy medium for both. I would definitely purchase products from Kylie again.
NOTE: Make sure you exfoliate your lips before putting any of these products on! It'll help the color last longer and stick to your lips.
I noticed a result immediately upon using it. I'd never heard of Micellar Water before, but after being given the chance to test this by Chickadvisor, I looked it up. I'm normally quite sceptical of products that are 'scientific' finding them to not live up to their claims, but this experience was the complete opposite.
Unlike with my regular cleanser using the Micellar Water at night, my skin didn't feel stripped or overly clean, but lovely and soft and refreshed. I love, love, love that you can use it over your eyes and most especially, your lips. I have real problems with dry, indented lips and I noticed a massive improvement in just one week.
While this micellar water isn't supposed to remove waterproof makeup as well, I found it removed it even better than my regular oily brand on makeup remover, without the need to rinse my face after. I was absolutely astonished that it only took two wipe overs with cotton wool pads to remove almost all of my extremely heavy, waterproof makeup from an artistic photoshoot I did.
I will absolutely continue to buy this and recommend it to everyone I know. My husband has always had terrible problems with peeling skin on his nose and dry lips and cheeks during the harsh Quebec winters. We've tried so many face creams and none seem to solve the problem. As I was so impressed with this, I thought there was no harm in him trying it too and after only a week there is no more visible peeling on his face. I absolutely cannot say enough good things about the Micellar Water. Simple Amazing.

'Finally! Just what we've been waiting for' but when St Tropez released the in-shower tan I was really excited to try it out as soon as I could. Claiming to give you a tan while you shower it sounded like St Tropez had made a product that was going to save me so much time and make my life much easier. Applying fake tan can be an all-evening affair. But With this gradual tan you slap it on in the shower and you can dry and get dressed as normal and it will develop throughout the day. The colour builds with each use so there's potential for an even darker colour too. I love it.
It's very simple to use -
Get in the shower and do your thing ( wash etc)
Smooth on the tan ensuring you're not directly under the stream of water.
Wait 3 minutes.
Get back under the running water, rinse off and wash your hands.
Dry and get dressed as usual.
The tan develops throughout the day and there is no fake tan smell. You are left with a very even, natural tan. I am so pleased with not only how well it works but how easy it is to use too. I really recommend you give this a try.
