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 acid green and strong blues I knew I had to get the paint pots (this range is exclusive to Harrods […]
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 of this Anna Sui Lipstick (even though I’m normally a nude girl) – In the flesh, it is quite a […]
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 little treat with the 4000 Boots points I’ve got saved up (About £40). Chanel is probably the only brand I […]
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 the are made with thick glitter: I remember these from when I was 17! Because I am doing the lipstick […]
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 Wu-Long tea, it is Oolong tea, respelt to add a sense of exoticism I suppose to the products. Loose leaf […]
……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 days, possibly Friday at the earliest for the post to start arrive. Depends on the depot of course, if you […]
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 found here: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/40107872 Sorry, I am still figuring out how to link! I then use these drawer dividers from Lakeland […]
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 here!).
