MAC Pigment Swatches

I have a whole load of Ebay pigments – some swatches below. I have about 10 new shades I haven’t had the chance to photo them yet! But here are the ones I have – I sell 1/4 tsp samples for £2.80p each with 50p for shipping.

Review: Lancome Virtuose Mascara

After reading the blurb for this mascara I had to give it a try: > Divine 100° curved lashes for 12 hours thanks to the exclusive Curlguard™ Complex. > The KeepCurl brush™ provides an outstanding eye-lash curler effect. > Extraordinary wear that’s virtually smudge-proof and tear-proof. Easily removable. I am obsessed with finding the perfect […]

Soap & Glory?

Suckered in by the cool packaging and clever puns, I bought this little package: This gift set was £10 and came with a Moisturiser, Gleam Spray, a Glitter Stick and a Peach Lip Gloss. My verdict? It wasn’t for me. The moisturiser gave me a awful, red lumpy rash on my chest, that is still […]

Concealers

This is a snap of some of the concealers I own. I didn’t include my Paula Dorf Salmon Coloured concealer though: I love concealer! If there’s one desert island item I would definately take with me it would be a good concealer. On the top left, is RMK with a matching setting powder, called ‘basic’ […]

Review: Tangle Teaser

Ok so my Tangle Teaser arrived today. The kidney shaped brush does not have a handle and needs to be gripped in the palm and has rubbery short bristles. (see below post for info). It hurt my little finger gripping this – hey, I’m the perfect candidate – very long hair, frizz and hard to […]

Nars Night Series Palette

If there’s one thing I love from Nars its the Night Series eyeshadows – they have a base colour and are showered by a subtle shimmer on top which looks amazing if you can get the glitter to stick (you have to press it on, not swipe!). One of my favourites is Night Porter (which […]

Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution featuring Tang Wei

Didn’t I say this blog is about Make Up and Stuff?! I am a fan of Ang Lee’s film and his versatility in terms of directing dramas (Brokeback Mountain), classics (Sense and Sensiblity) and action (Hulk). His new film post oscar sucess is called Lust, Caution and features veteran actors Tony Leung and Joan Chen. […]

Beauty Book Review: The Asian Bridal Look Book

I found this book whilst reading some Asian Bridal Magazine (For American readers, Asian as in Indian and Pakistani descent as opposed to Chinese. I know that in the US, Asian tend to refer to Japanese/Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese etc.) I love the strong bold looks that carry well on the strong Asian bone structure so I sourced […]

Beauty Book Review – Bobbi Brown, Beauty

This was Bobbi’s first book, and she has released other ones since this one, but I do love looking at this one because it is her first and captures the essence of her make up. There is something about her Make Up – the soft caramels and plums on the counter, that Make Bobbi Brown […]

Beauty 103 Book Review

I mentioned below a series of books called Beauty 101, 102, 103, which I can’t read but love the pictures to! Beauty 103 came with a DVD and I’ve had a chance to watch it a few times. It’s a pretty good vid! It is divided into three main sections – one his the base […]

Laura Mercier Hong Kong Exclusive Range

Two exclusive Laura Mercier Palettes, Hong Kong only I belive! The colours are tame for me, but they do look like universally flattering shades and wholly useful! The Eyebrow set come with setting gel, tweezers, brush, eyebrow powder, case and sharpener.

New Camera

As a budding photographer, I have my fair share of giagantic bodies and lenses, but what I really like, is a good quality little digital. Last Christmas I bought Samsung i6, because it was well priced at £129, and used SD card, and had a good amount of pixels. One year on I really wish […]

Recommend Beauty Books!

I love any new Make Up Books – can anyone recommend any to read or look at? I already have: 1. All the Bobbi Brown Books 2. All the Kevyn Aucoin Books 3. Make Up Your Mind – Nars 4. The New Beauty Secrets – Laura Mercier 5. Confessions of a Beauty Editor – Linda […]

Beauty Book Review – Make Up Your Mind, Francoise Nars

Coming in a hardback, spiral bound format, Make Up Your Mind is a stylish beauty book and not your typical Make Up Manual. Divided up into sections by a sheet of acetate, each look shows the bare face (before) then the after face on the right, with neat lines drawn in the acetate to show […]

Internet Dysfunction!

Pain of all pains, my internet has been disconnected for 10 days, so I am sat at an internet cafe, fiddling with the Wireless, and feeling slight panic at the amount of emails I have to answer (82) and people I have to chase up (6) and other random bits of facts you normally have […]

Benefit Christmas Items

I went to the Benefit Counter today to pick up their new Creme Eyeshadows in Skinny Jeans, a medium peweter shade. I swiped a few other colours of the back of my hand but didn’t buy antything else. Now, 6 hours later, the colours has stayed pristine on the back of my hair! Needless to […]

Beauty 101, 102 and 103!

Always a fan of beauty books in any language, I discovered LI QIAN RONG’s Beauty Books, 101, 102 and – can you guess? 103 a while ago. Beauty 103 is pretty new and despite it being help up in the post (took a month to arrive :O should have been a week). It is written […]

D’Feel Lash Curling Technology!

If there’s one beauty thing I am obsessed with it’s how to get curly lashes that stay all day. I have 30 mascaras and I can say honestly, only 2 truly do not cause any – shall we call if ‘floppage’?! So Imagine how excited I was when I saw this product be a company […]

Testing, Testing: Estee Lauder Anti Wrinkle Concentrate

Approaching my mid-twenties is a painful prospect – well ok, not painful but nevertheless, one has to pay attention to those first signs of aging. Once you got it, it ain’t gonna go away again, right?! So to help the fine lines I see developing (my smile lines) I have been using this product from […]
