I was in such a rush today I slapped on some green from an Urban Decay palette and gold, and left the flat with red hair. The piccy is not very clear – sorry, I had just had a shower and the mirror is steamy! What ‘cha think? Great or Garish!?
The ladies stateside have all the luck! I tried one of these NYX pencils and was in love! The eye pencils are incredibly soft and easy to apply – sometimes a pencil can seem soft when applied to the hand but not on the eye but these are just as soft and pigmented on the sensitive eye area. Swatches: These are the chubby lip pencils – I got these as a lot and some of […]
My first love will always be Shu Uemura! I’ll never forget when I was 18, going to London and seeing the old shop in Covent Garden and all the multi coloured plastic cases stacked up. I was overwhelmed! I bought (and could only afford one) and I still have it today, – ME 555, a metallic green. Anyway the Shu Uemura Website has this chart with all the colours (but not the discontinued ones): *Sigh* […]

I never thought about buying Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes Kit – it seemed so plain: Courtesy of a lovely friend though, I got this and it is a fantastic little kit! It is perfect for the no brainer, easy clean eye look – when you’re in a rush, when you have a job interview, etc. You get Boi-ing concealer (undereye) and three complementary brown/peachy shades and brushes to apply them. The powders are VERY soft […]
ASOS have a discount code ‘TREATME’ which gives you £10 off for every £100 spend. Guess who spend £99 on Friday and didn’t know about the code. D’uh! Still, at least you guys can get to enjoy the code. Spending £100 at ASOS is not hard!
I was completely inspired by Karen at the gorgeous Make Up & Beauty Blog. Karen did her 43 Make Up Items she was thankful for, followed by the 43 non make up related things she was grateful for. I wish we had something similar in the UK! (But maybe something other than Turkey. I big fat duck or something.) This time of year can easily get you down since it gets dark quickly, gets cold […]
So my other half has been working like crazy – anyway he gave me some chocolate as a consolation. Mmm I think. What a fancy bar. I finally get round to eating some today and I find the most pefect bite mark in the corner – And a smaller one in the corner – No doubt he got peckish on those long working nights! It just made me laugh because it’s the most perfectly shaped […]
