My favourite Face Mask (Nars Mud Mask), ever!

I was just thinking of trying out the Nars Facial soap – apparently good for clogged pores and blackheads and just thought I reiterate how much I love their face mask. This is the mud mask, and it is well worth the £33.00. Most masks leave my skin a little red and bumpy afterwards and […]

Nars ITA Brush

I had a lovely makeover at Nars the other week (before a job interview! I was supposed to be rehersing answers in a coffee shop and instead I spent 2 hours at a Nars counter…nevermind eh. Anyway, the MUA used this brush to contour (side of the nose, cheeks) – I was concerned it would […]

Anatomicals Skin & Body Goodies

Anatomicals in a retro range of face and skincare goodies, with jazzy names like ‘Stop Cracking Up’ Lipbalm, and ‘No Old Bags Allowed’ Eye Gel. I sampled a few of their goods, the lip balm, eye gel and breath freshner. Anatomicals is very affordable, with prices from £3. What did I think of the products […]

Pressed Pigments & Storage Idea!

So I took it upon myself to press nearly all my MAC Pigments and some other random ones. Problem is I had no where to put them all! So in the end I got some gift boxes (DVD Sized) and used magnetic strips. The strips look like this and can be bought from craft stores […]

Cargo Anniversary Set – Update!

So here is a pic of the Cargo 10 Year Anniversary Set – Cargo never really took off in the UK the way is has Stateside and I am really a newbie where their stuff is concerned. However, I hear that Sainsbury’s will be stocking Cargo soon (starting in the Colney, Dulwich and Cromwell Road […]

RMK Christmas Palette 2007

RMK have released this lovely palette for 2007 Christmas. I’ve found palettes of previous years to be lacking in quality, or of having bizarre choices in terms of colours, but this set is gorgeous. Note, the stripping of my purchase (I SO didn’t want to remove the gift wrap….but I’ll do it for you.) You […]

Nifty Storage From Muji

I am a sucker for Muji storage – I love their clear acrylic storage, especially the well divided containers and boxes. Yesterday I found these little containers – normally when I find these things there are some parts that aren’t quite right for make up. This was perfect though! It is compact and opens up […]

MAC Christmas Goodies

Ok, Ok, so I am totally late with this, but you know, I thought a lot of the MAC limited edition stuff would have sold out by now but most of the ranges are still in stock. What is really annoying is the sheer volume of collections coming out and how they are spacing them […]

Cargo 10 Year Anniversary Set & Liquid Powder?!

I received this Cargo 10 Year Set in the post today. Cargo is hardly well known in the UK, but of course our American friends know good stuff when they see it! This set has some of Cargo’s bestsellers, and I love the natural glowyness of the kit. Included is: Soho Lip Gloss Duo Coral […]

Ben & Jerry’s Lip Balms!

How utterly cool is this? Ben & Jerry’s lip balm in ice cream style tubs!: It comes in three flavours, Chop Chip Cookie Dough, Choc Fudge Brownie Lip Balm, Peanut Butter Cup Lip Balm. It’s worth it for the packaging alone! But – I would have liked a fruity balm, like a raspberry swirl or […]

Urban Decay 24/7 Pencils, Gift Sets & Matte Eyeshadow Haul

Well I was expecting a haul from Boots about a week ago, and the courier messed it up so much that I sort of…lost the passion for what was coming but now that it’s all here, it’s all very exciting! I bought three of the Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadows. Incase you haven’t visited the Urban […]

Idea for Depotted Eyeshadows

So I have got into pressing me pigments lately (badly might I add – I have been mixing the powder with Isopropyl Alcohol then getting my stronger other half to press them for me with a coin) but as you see, mine are all crumbly: Nevertheless, now that I have a ton of these I […]

Nintendo DS Face Exercise!

So Nintendo Japan are releasing a DS camera and this nifty little game, like Facercise but with the camera you can watch yourself doing it at the same time! Obviously aimed at women, I wonder how many times most people will play this game? I suppose its a good little thing to take on the […]

Pucker Up, it’s Pout!

The Pout 50% sale is perhaps a huge sign that it is the beginning of the end…sad, I know. But great for bargains! Shipping is pretty slow at the moment due to the sheer amount of orders they are dealing with (around 12 days for mine..tis a lifetime when you are waiting for make up!). […]

Nars Phillip Lim Limited Edition Palette

When it gets to winter, I don’t know why but I am attracted to the rich and luxurious colours of Nars. As I mentioned here, Nars is my favourite counter at the moment and imagine my surprise when I popped in and they told me they had some lovley limited edition palettes (Nars doesn’t normally […]

Review: Smashbox ‘O’ Glow

Smashbox have this lovely invention, the O Glow blusher, which is a clear gel and turns out a pink on the skin. This is the blurb: “Experience instant chemistry as your complexion is transformed from so-so to oh-so-glowing! The first intuitive blush, this clear gel reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the […]

What is your favourite Make Up Counter?

I went shopping with a slightly less enthusiastic-about-makeup friend, and god love her, she shuddered when I approached the Make Up Counters in Harvey Nichols. She was mortified that I was browsing when they (the Sales Assistants) were standing there [like vultures]. I’m make up savvy enough to say no to something if I don’t […]

Bobbi Brown Chocolate Palette & Pink Bronze Shimmerbrick

In my old middle age (well, approaching middle twenties), I have started to like nudes more and more for that clean sophisticated look. So I knew I wanted this Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Chocolate Palette when I saw it. Three of the shades of eyeshadow, except for bone are exclusive to the palette. The top […]

YSL White Gold Collection

So I mentioned how the Lavshuca Winter Palettes were meh and not really usable. So here’s a collection I picked up which I didn’t expect to but really really like – YSL’s Whie Gold/Love collection. This is the whole collection: Pretty huh, but very typical of YSL, glamourous and lots of pesky metal that gets […]
