Hello ! Came on to see if anyone had started a thread and can't find one...anyone fancy a daily opening thread ? smile

I'll start it off, sadly not a good colour for me for the Anastasia lipstick so not a great start , maybe I'll advertise it on the swap thread!
If it was a gloss I might have stuck with it, but it's quite a solid matte full on colour.

Onwards and upwards though...Excited for the rest of the month!

Colour is not right for me and the texture(!) is that the right word - is strange - dries very matt and only need a little amount.

Was really excited to see an Anastasia Beverly Hills product and full sized too! However I think the colour is a bit too warm toned for me. Will probably pass this one on to a friend. Good start just sadly not for me!

BarbedBloom Sun 01-Dec-19 17:06:19

Yeah, I was disappointed with the colour too. Still, a decent brand so a good start really

I like the ABH lip products but I’m another one who isn’t sure about this colour

faeriesandelves Sun 01-Dec-19 22:54:22

Too dark for me by itself but added a lighter gloss on top. Stays on well. Looking forward to tomorrow!

BarbedBloom Mon 02-Dec-19 15:45:10

Really pleased with today's. I love facial oils

faeriesandelves Mon 02-Dec-19 15:54:48

Me too and a great brand too. The smell is lush

Olive122 Mon 02-Dec-19 16:23:22

I can’t wait to try the facial oil tonight, it smells beautiful. I’ve tried a cleanser from the same brand and that was lovely for my skin, so I’ve high hopes for the oil smile

Hello! I can join now mine has been delivered. Excited to open two doors at once!
I’m a bit dubious about the lipstick. Maybe i will try it with a clean brush and if it doesn’t suit then put it up for swaps. Loving the oil though! It smells divine and I really love facial oils.

Pretty good start!

I8toys Mon 02-Dec-19 18:56:16

Smells divine. Just looked on Amazon and its £62 for 50ml of this stuff and good reviews.

diamondsandrose Mon 02-Dec-19 22:32:08

Just used the oil... gorgeous smell and texture. Hoping to wake up renewed and plumped wink

What is this for today? The only issue with beauty calendars I have is that I cannot read the very small small print! Is it for hair?

Writersblock2 Tue 03-Dec-19 11:21:08

Yeah, it’s for hair. I googled it. Basically a hair oil/serum. Apparently with keratin. It does have very good reviews.

BarbedBloom Tue 03-Dec-19 21:09:43

I used the hair oil and my hair does feel softer

diamondsandrose Tue 03-Dec-19 23:28:40

Used the oil tonight after washing my hair and it feels really soft, smells good too ! Def happy with days 2 and 3 , I'll pass on day one

Writersblock2 Wed 04-Dec-19 07:16:07

Not sure how I feel about the serum. Sure, it looks like a nice product but only 7.5ml and on one of those little sample cards that get given out? Better up your game tomorrow, Grazia!

Olive122 Wed 04-Dec-19 07:49:57

I agree, the size of today’s is very small.

I tried the facial oil from day 2 last night and my skin feels lovely and soft this morning smile

diamondsandrose Wed 04-Dec-19 08:04:33

My thoughts exactly !! Nice product but that's a sample size , they'd probably call it a deluxe sample but 7.5ml not great. Bit cheeky !

faeriesandelves Wed 04-Dec-19 08:18:26

Yes not overly impressed with the size of today's. Esp given we've got some full size products. A

faeriesandelves Wed 04-Dec-19 08:19:41

The hair oil however I love. I think my hair has a reflection this morning it's so shiny

Writersblock2 Wed 04-Dec-19 17:09:48

I have to admit, I slapped some oil in my hair this morning before I left for work and it does look rather nice today.

KeithPartridge Wed 04-Dec-19 19:31:12

I've used this serum before and it is very nice. Nothing bad to say about it at all and lasts a seriously long time for a small size.

Writersblock2 Thu 05-Dec-19 07:29:23

Hm. Bit dubious about the tanning face mist. I’ll give it a crack in the spring.
