Claire's Club Blackberry Lip Balm
Yes, yes, this is a product aimed at children. It was (still is, actually) £1 in the sale and I bought it on a whim because I love, love, love, flavoured lip balms and needed another for my immense collection. I didn't realise it was tinted! I was very impressed with it - it leaves a subtle blue-black sheen and because it's a balm isn't sticky and doesn't feel heavy or drying. For £1 a pop I went back and bought another three.
Manic Panic Amplified Colour in Electric Lizard
Like other Manic Panic dyes it's supposed to be applied with a highlighting brush but I find it difficult to get all-over colour that way so I tend to grab it in my gloved hands (it's gloopy rather than liquid) and slop it on straight out of the pot.
SmartBlonde Platinum Blonde Toner
I am slowly learning never to believe the claims a product makes on the box. I used this product following removal of the most recent coat of black dye from my hair, leaving my hair a dark reddish colour:
Overall I was quite pleased with the product - I was asking a lot from it, after all I had been dyeing my hair black for the previous six years. It was easy enough to use, and although I felt it was quite expensive I couldn't find another product that would do the same job in less time or with less damage.
Karma Atomiser by Gorilla Perfume at Lush
This is a wonderfully unusual, strong citrus and patchouli fragrance that lingers all day... not for the faint-hearted as it's very different from the usual sweet, floral scents. It's apparently inspired by headshops and the music of Massive Attack, and it certainly turns heads - I often get people asking where they can get my perfume. :-D
The shop assistant told me that because it's high in essential oils, a little spritz goes a long way, and she was right. A drop on the neck and wrists is enough for you to be surrounded by orange and pine until well into the wee small hours, so I've found it well worth the price.
Also available as a solid perfume or spritzer, but each formulation has a slightly different scent. The atomiser is the most expensive at £20 but contains the highest concentration of essential oils.
