NYX – US Brand

I am going to post shortly on US brands – they won’t be anything new to US readers, but quite interesting for UK gals who have never heard of them. NYX have a comprehensive website Here, and boy is there a lot of choice at a good price! Especially worth trying out are the eyeshadow […]

Benefit Best of 2007

Over at HQHair, I’ve spotted some fab Benefit products – ‘The Best Of Benefit 2007’ set, for £39.50 containing BADgal lash.Dr. Feelgood, Benetint (I don’t see why its the best of 2007 – these are Benefits bestsellers any year! I think a set containing Rush Hour, High Brow and That Girl primer would be more […]

Stila New Look Website Launch

Stila was amazing when it was launched, although it hasn’t come up with anything particuraly innovative over the last couple of years. It does sell the old favourites though, like Lip Glazes, Convertable Colour and Smudge Pots. This Dandy eye palette also talks to you and tells you how to apply the eyeshadow (purely a […]

Shu Uemura Nail Enamel Usubeni

I promised I would limit myself to what I bought from the Shu Uemura Komon collection but I have totally failed – I bought Nail Enamel Usubeni, a medium-dark mauve plum with light shimmer. I don’t wear polish day to day as I think it is bad for the nails to not have air – […]

MAC Alexander McQueen Collection

I thought I’d share some picture of the Alexander McQueen collection which are due any day in the post! I am a fan of the paint pots – I don’t love MAC as much as some people do, but I do love anything that is highly pigmented and is easy to apply. Since I love […]

What Arrived In The Post…

Hurrah! I did recieve two items in the post today – I am suspecting there is a large bag somewhere with the rest of my bits and pieces, but nevertheless, today I got my purchases from an excellent Ebay seller, 88beauty. My two limited edition Shu Uemura Palettes – I also loved the rosy tone […]

What to spend the Boots points on?

With Christmas looming, one of the top places to shop is Boots, with their 3 for 2 gifts and the Christmas ranges. In honesty, I have already done 85% of my Christmas Shopping (really! – I Hate crowds and post is not to be trusted this year), however, I am hoping to pick myself a […]

Anna Sui Glitter Lipsticks

Anna Sui Cosmetics used to be on Sale in the UK in Boots but sadly no more, although the make up can be bought from Strawberrynet and also Ebay. The packaging is so unique and cute; black enamel and the motif of roses. For some reason I felt tempted by these two lipsticks, even though […]

Oolong, a Diet Tea?

I hope I don’t sound like a diet fanatic, because I am definately not, but I noticed a product swanning around on the Web named Wu-Long tea, for fat burning purposes. Wu-Long? Sounds suspiously like old favourite, Oolong. Sure enough, a bit of research and was easy to find there is no such thing as […]

Postal Strike Over!

……for now, anyway. The horrendous 4 day strike is finally over and although I doubt any of us will be deluged in a shower of Make Up packages (actually a fantasy of mine! – 200 packages? All for me? Just put it over there please…). Chances are with the backlog it will take a few […]

Make Up Storage

It is always interesting to see how people store their make up! Simple storage crates, dressing tables, plastic units…at the moment I am in desperate need for more space! (or less make up!?). I use these drawers from ikea (I have two): In cream and red. At £20 they are good value and can be […]

Still Obsessed with EnKore

Seriously, I can’t stop watching these videos on You Tube. I love his tips, they are genuinely useful like the one above about coverting MAC Palettes. I have a lot of loose pans I need find put into a secure home so I am defiantely going to do this (once my MAC PRO card gets […]

Diets & Cook Yourself Thin

Diets are big business – for companies who make food substitutes, for people who make fat burning drugs, for gyms, personal trainers etc. There are 101 ways people claim you can lose weight. Presuming you don’t have any medical problems, eating well and exercise will normally help shift a few pounds. This would be my […]

Curly Lashes

A problem for a lot of Asian women, is that we have short, straight lashes. The normal remedy is to curl and then apply mascara but I always found that they a. smudged, and b. make my lashes flop. Despite being a Make Up Fan for years, I never really wore mascara untill two years […]

Chinese Culture Vs German?

My other half pointed out this funny find from Shoutbox, and I thought I’d share some of the images with you. Find the whole set of images here: http://www.shoutwire.com/viewstory/108187/chinesse Meanwhile, here are some that had struck a chord with me – A comment of family structure? Children do tend to be the centre of a […]

Shu Uemura Bath Oils

I’m not one for soaking in the bath, but these new Bath oils from Shu Uemura look so lovely. They come in four flavours – Hinoku (Cypress), Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Shobu (Japanese Iris) and finally Yuzu, (Grapefruit). I went to Shu today to buy a few items to fill the spaces in my empty palettes, […]

What’s coming up?

Next Week – More about MAC Alexander McQueen Collection – Will anything arrive in the post?! – Mascara Tests – Stage Make Up for Everyday

Make Up Brushes

Every so often, when I can’t find a single clean brush or my pink eyeshadow comes out black, I know it’s time to clean my brushes. (I do it every month! Honest!). It has become real therapy for me! There’s something relaxing about cleaning away, rinsing away the colours and being left with lots of […]

Nars Mud Mask

This is my favourite mask of all for my sensitive skin. It doesn’t irritate at all, and weirdly enough, leaves the skin very calm, not red or irritated at all. It is a thick, opaque textured cream, which dries (who wants a mask that doesn’t crack, right!). It is £40 – not cheap but I […]

Time to worship

Like most make up junkies, we probably know an awful lot about make up and its hard to find something new in terms of tips and advice that we haven’t heard a million times already. I was surprised and so pleased when I found Koren, a make up artist who has started posting videos on […]
