Revlon Blush Brush
Revlon Blush Brush
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for bronzer use, 5 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Revlon Blush Brush (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The brush is lovely and (ultra)soft . My daughter uses it for her bronzer and it gives a good even finish. Cannot comment on it's use with face powder as my daughter doesn't use it.

There was some bristle loss, but that appears common to brushes and was not enough loss to make me concerned.
It seems that it will last and comes with a little plastic pouch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive., 5 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A beige/pink highlight, with pewter and brown as eye colour/liner, together with a slightly more beige shade as an alternative highlight, plus a sparkly gold for those special occasions. They all have a rather subtle sparkle when applied (other then the brown), which is less that is indicated when on the palate. I particularly like the subtle colouring once applied which means, if you want a heavier or obvious colour, you have to apply several coats.
My daughter uses the supplied applicator and then her own blending brush to gently mix the colours to prevent harsh lines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive!!, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An impressive item for such a cheap price. Prospectve buyers should note that the lengths of the hands are easily shortened with a pair of scissors and a nail file to smooth the edges, so the motor can be used for smaller sized clocks then would appear so from the measurements. I found it so easy to fit that I had my clock back working (including trimming of the hands) in 10 minutes.
Highly recommended.

PS: It keeps perfect time too

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I'd ever have expected (SEE UPDATE), 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd never have thought of buying a window vacuum so grabbed the chance when it was offered under the Amazon Vine programme.

The AG100 seems a solidly built item and was easy to take apart to cleanLike another Vine reviewer, I think the AG 130, with it's additional attachments may be a better buy, however, the suction worked very well and the battery life is quite reasonable enabling all the windows in our 3 bed detatched to be cleaned. I was disappointed over the lack of even a basic wall mount as it's not the easiest item to store away if kept in one piece. The single size blade, whilst ideal for things like french windows et al, is too wide for use on vertical slatted type windows

I was truly taken aback by how effective the unit was, I cleaned my french windows (with my daughter using a stop watch) in just under 2 minutes.

Had this have been supplied with a wall mount, I would have given it 5 stars, but this is easily a 4+ star rating

PS

Wonderful news : this is a GB VERSION so no plug attachments that make the plug unit so bulky as in a lot of cases these days - this is specifically for the UK market

*******UPDATE!!**********

The scenario: It's winter; It's freezing cold and the car, whenever I use it, is messed up with salt residue off the roads.
SO:
1. Wash it quickly and let it dry naturally, and your get a dirty dotted effect from the water droplets; OR
2. Wash and dry it and you get hands so cold, you can't feel them; OR

A new way. Quick wash using a sponge and a hose, then use the AG100 to vacuum up the water - no dirty marks and, even if you can't quite dry the contoured sections, a dry cloth will finish those off for you - so, a winter car wash in about 8 minutes!!!


Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush - 12.4 g, Charmed
Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush - 12.4 g, Charmed
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This would not normally be the colour of choice for my wife. Being fair haired, she would normally prefer lighter tones. Having said that, it's easy to apply as it requires nothing more than the use of your fingers. It can be built-up for more colour if you feel it's needed, and yet has a light feel so it's not as if caked onto your skin. It has a more natural look than a powder and doesn't look as false as powder sometimes does.
The size of the tub reasonable,and should last a while so it is, therefore, good value for money.

I was in two minds bout a 4 or 5 star rating as the colour was too red, but decided in the end, that it would be unfair to rate it low on those grounds alone - so 5 star

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but don't forget to buy batteries (8 x AA) or it won't work!, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for our grandson's birthday (well, actually, he chose it for us). Very, very good. The (removeable) magazine holds 12 darts (supplied) and the gun comes with a 4gb SD card for recording the user's actions. There's also a slide opening to allow the easy removal of any jammed darts (good idea)
There's little to do on removing it from the packaging other than load the darts, insert the SD card and put in 8 (YES EIGHT!!!) AA batteries (NOT supplied).
Great fun for kids (and old grandads!!)

I would have given it 5 stars but for the lack of batteries which are essential for the guns' use

Note: it's worth reminding the kids of 2 things: 1) always lay the gun down on it's right side to ensure you don't accidentally eject the SD card (situated on the left) and; 2) do not leave the magazine fully loaded when the gun is not in use. When loaded, it compresses the interior spring which, if left compressed, will gradually loose it's 'spring' leading to many more dart jamming.


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - 4.2 g, Pink in the Afternoon
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - 4.2 g, Pink in the Afternoon
Price: £7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Some concern about lastability, but very nice, 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This lipstick is very easy to apply, has a creamy texture but not a long-lasting colour.
The "pink" is more of a peachy colour. However, it comes in a case with a clear top so, if you don't like the colour, you can return it.

The one thing I did like in particular, is that when choosing a lip colour to match the clothes, this would go well with a variety of colours from red through to beige.

If the 'lastability' factor was better, this would have been 5 stars

p.s. The Amazon picture is quite close to the real colour - good photo!!

My wife loves Monk whereas I got a little fed up after series 2. This is definitely one of those series where you either like the main character or not. However you go, the story lines are always first class.

Ghost Stories for Christmas (Expanded 6-Disc Collection Box Set) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Michael Hordern
Price: £41.87

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but a little dated now, 22 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I kept putting off buying this collection as I felt that my memories of Christmas ghost stories had been tainted by the passing of the years. I wish I had not changed my mind. Although this is an excellent collection, (with up to 4 different versions of the same story) they have dated badly.

My personal favourites were the versions starring Christopher Lee as M.R.James, depicted as he read the stories to his students in his universary rooms. Lee's voice imparted a real chill to the tales and, with his fantastic diction, made the stories seem so real
