Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner - Black, 5 ml
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner - Black, 5 ml

5.0 out of 5 stars modern look, 30 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
FASHIONABLE
===========
Fashion changes when it comes to make up, sometimes bland pastel colours are the rage.
Whilst at other times warm autumn colours become more fashionable.

DARK
====
This is a nice deep dark black. No hints of red or brown. A true bluey black. Ideal for that definition that is required.

SCOUSE BROW?
============
It's ideal for the definition required around the eyes but don't try and apply to the eye brow. For that look you'll need a deep dark pencil.

GOOD VALUE
==========
For a good brand, it's well made, and is a good defining liquid liner. I think this is good value. Very good value actually.

RECOMMENDED
===========
If you're after a branded liquid liner offering 'true black' this is one to consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little card, 29 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although it's tiny it has a whopping big capacity.

The main thing with this type of card is that it has to be reliable and fast. It is.

I put it through some standard tests. It whizzzzzzzed through them.

Overall if you're after a reliable, reasonably priced card. This is one to consider.

superb, cheap ideal replacement cartridges.
Are they better than original toner cartridges? No. they are exactly the same.
So if you're after a reasonably priced replacement set of inks for your Dell printer, look no further.


Vigilante
Vigilante

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.39

5.0 out of 5 stars a surprise, 27 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Vigilante (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I read this in one sitting. The characters and writing just kept me going.

I rather like the central character, Jenny Pepper, despite being an over protective mother of an normal 'angry at the world' teenager.

The premise of a mother prowling the streets of her town dressed as a superhero, fighting off any thugs has all the ingredients of a rather fine film.

It's funny, dry, has some comical bits that are wonderful, in addition to being both sharp and not 'over-written.'

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars bubble bubble, 26 Jan. 2015
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
LOOKS
=====
If your child loves Barbie, this should be a welcome addition.

BUBBLE MAKER
============
The concept is easy. Dip in the bubble solution. Pull the cord. And away she spins.

COOL BUBBLES
============
Hmmmmnn. Not quite. It takes ages and ages to get a good result. By which time many children will have given up.
However, if you simply use it in the bath with bubble bath the results are just as good.

THE STRING
==========
As I have said, you pull the string and this allows Barbie to spin. But the string isn't that robust. I have had this a very short time and it feels like it'll go soon. (I'll update the review in due course.)

OVERALL
=======
If you are patient, not too hard with the string, and love Barbie, then you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improbable, charming and funny, 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Atticus Craftsman is sent to Spain to close down a literary magazine called ‘Librarte’
It's one of the publications for the family publishing firm.

He always travels with his supply of Earl Grey Tea and his 5 favourite erotica book.
The women who run the magazine are funny literary characters. They may have different ideas about the magazine's closure.

Missing for some time Inspector Manchego is soon investigating the matter.....

Very amusing and entertaining. Literary references galore!
Sometimes humour doesn’t translate from one language to another. I'm pleased to say it does this time.
Improbable, charming and funny. You couldn't ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Objections..., 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
WHAT ARE THEY
=============
Dettol Power and Fresh Advance Multi-Purpose wipes are a nice smelling hygienic wipe. Not too big, and handy for wiping toys, tables and things like that.

HOW
===
Pull back the resealable cover, pull out the wipe and voilà a lovely clean surface.

NEEDED
======
Well, a wet kitchen roll will be just as good in many many cases. But for those times that you want a clean surface and a more sterile type of surface these are ideal.

OBJECTIONS
==========
I have two objection to these. The first is I think they can encourage people to think a sterile environment is ideal. And secondly in the above blurb it says:

"Mum's journey"

Mum's journey! It's 2015. Parent's journey maybe, Mum and Dad's journey would be better. But child rearing isn't the preserve of mums.

Ok, I've got that off my chest. Other than that they're ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a lovely pen, 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
QUALITY
========
I've used other styluses before (or is it stylii) and they tend to be fine for a week or two before you give up on them.
They either break, or the accuracy isn't any good, or worse they scratch the screen.
They also vary in price. I have to admit I have also bought them from the pound shop. They've been fine.
This one is in a different league to the other ones I've used. It's quality oozes. It feels like it'll last for years.

WORKS
=======
It works accurately and easily. It doesn't scratch.
It's ideal for drawing.

OVERALL
========
It's a quality pen that works. If you need a stylus that will last and is accurate this is one to consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Loaded
======
Loaded in a few minutes and updated.

Full scan
=======
Did a full scan in over 30 minutes.

System
======
I know it shouldn't be a factor. But I do judge an anti virus by whether it slows down my laptop. Whether whilst scanning, updating, or working in the background.
This version was fine. No slow down. Fine.

Overall
======
It works.

5.0 out of 5 stars super small shooter, 22 Jan. 2015
QUALITY
=======
A well made and solid camera.

VALUE
=====
At the time of this review the camera comes with two lens for the same price as the body alone.

PICTURES
========
The results are breathtaking. Clear, and amazing. It hasn't got in-built flash (although it does have a hot-show for a flash) and the photography at low light is awesome. I don't think I'll be buying a flash.

FILTERS
=======
This is what Fuji excel at. The filters represent the 'old' type of film. sepia, proneg, monochrome. I love these little touches.

FEATURES
========
As with most cameras in this price category, it has so many features that you can't possible know about them all. The guide is fine. There are also loads of online (free) resources to get the most out of it. There's a useful book too (although I think it's a little overpriced.) Mastering the Fujifilm X-Pro 1

BEEFED UP X100
==============
This is really a souped up version of the lovely Fuji X100. Which was one of Fuji's best cameras.

NEGS
====
It was a little slow to focus. Not always just sometimes. I upgraded the firmware and it's no longer an issue.

OVERALL
=======
A camera for the very serious amateur/semi-professional. The results from this beauty shouldn't disappoint.
