Art Deco Eyeshadow Haul – it is true love….

Art Deco shadows hail from Germany and are a drugstore brand. I found a place that sells them in the UK (but will not ship to the US, sorry) and each eyeshadow was £4, and comes with a lid but can be placed into a palette with a solid magnetic base. The website I bought […]

What the Lady wants, the Lady gets…

So a few days ago I saw a tester for an eyeshadow in a store called Superdrug, which sells the more low end cosmetic ranges (but prices are slowly creeping up). The brand, Sleek, is known for producing cosmetics for dark skins. I spotted a 12 shadow eyeshadow palette, and became obsessed. The colours were […]

Eye Make Up Video

Just thought I’d quickly share a make up video from the Tube. I think the Make Up Artist does a good job, even though he is a teeny weeny bit wonky with his lashes. Ladies with single lids know how hard it is to give the eye some glamma! P.S. I don’t know what he […]


This has got nothing to do with make up, but I was very shocked to hear about the death of Heath Ledger, at a very untimely 28 years old. As of yet there is no official reason for his death. It was with his performance in Brokeback Mountain that I became a real fan of […]

Ebay & Paypal Discount Code

Ebay UK have a pretty nifty deal… But buy something from Ebay, until the 31st January, and get £5 of the post and packing costs. If the shipping is less, the whole amount will be erased. This is particularly good for items in Asia – you know how sellers there tend to list things for […]

D’Feel Eyelash Curler & Privacy Eyelash Spray

If there is one thing that I would like to swap with my boyfriend, its not his hairy arms, but his long, lush, curly eyelashes. Everyone knows long lashes are wasted on straight men. And he has the cheek to whine in front of me *ooh, my lashes are getting tangled*. Unfortunately I do not […]

Chanel Spring & Superdrug Visit

Fighting the rain, I made a little trip to the shops today to buy the palette I have been waiting for – The Chanel Blue Celestes Quad & Azur Limited edition polish. T’was very irritating to be visiting Chanel counters today. Simple question – “What is limited edition?” – you know four counters out of […]

She’s Back!

My lovely little cousin, star of You Tube, has has become suprisingly demanding since turning seven, has made another video for all of you. I left her alone to do the video and returned to find glitter all over my Apple Mac and bed covers and to find that she had done a face paint […]

Transparent & Translucent Face Powders; Suqqu Vs Laura Gellar

I must confess although I occasionally get an oily nose, my face is largely dry, especially as the day progresses. So god only knows why I have an obsession with pressed powder. I just think it’s the chic process of taking out a compact and patting the nose; although its not something I see much […]

Jumping on the bandwagon…

So I have been wanting NARS Yachiyo brush, from the Kabuki Artisan Range forever. My favourite MA on Nars uses that brush on me to apply the multiple; to apply strong brushes…anything cheek related. But there is the issue of price. At £37.50 it is steep, especially as it feels so lightweight; I know, it […]

Special CP from the US of A

My lovely, lovely friend, the Muse, helped me out with a CP from Sephora a while ago…well it was a long while ago wasn’t it my love? I do believe my parcel travelled on the back of a snail, then was inspected piece by piece, one for each day. First things first, there were sweets […]

Yum Yum for my Tum

Just a quickie…I will posting soon on a wonderful CP that Musey sent to me – inside was a load of American Candy and my favourite of all time – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Seeing as the BF felt the need to munch through most of the bag whilst he was playing Grand Car Theft […]

Suqqu Midori Green Eyeshadow

I love the look of Suqqu cosmetics, although it is pricey here in the UK. I have a clear blotting powder by Suqqu, and thats about it, so I snapped up the chance to purchase an eyeshadow from Ebay: The photograph does not do this eyeshadow justice! I took a chance and bought the green […]

Lunasol Full Glamour Lipstick, in Pink Beige

Everyone now and again a lipstick comes along that has everything going for it; colour, texture, packaging… Lunasol Lipstick in Pink Beige is one of them. I first saw a photograph of this on MUA and loved the way it looked. I finally splurged $39 (I know, its cheaper on Ebay – well I couldn’t […]

Boots Time Delay Purifying Cleansing Balm

Boots, the biggest drugstore in the UK, runs some fantastic deals such as their advantage card scheme, where your points turn into cash! I have claimed numerous goodies with my advantage card; it’s not one of those where you need to spend thousands to get a packet of crisps, it is a very generous scheme […]

Anna Sui Collection 2008

Anna Sui released its latest collection for Spring on the 10th January. Some of the more interesting items is the limited edition glitter gloss, which comes in blue, yellow and red, and five glitter eye sticks: (Pic from Being a girl who loves gold, I indulged in the yellow gloss and eye stick (both […]

Yu-Be, or Yu-Skin Skincare Products from Japan

I first heard of Yu-Be (or Yu-Skin cream) when I was searching for a highly moisturising and medicated cream for my boyfriend’s ezcema. I spotted this product in Space NK, selling for £10 for a little tube. I bought these direct from Japan, where it is called Yu-Skin. It is also a lot, lot cheaper […]

Quick EOTD

Here is my quick EOTD photo with purple and golds… I won’t lie and said I did it, the nice lady at Nars did. Was trying to rustle up a look for a wedding you see… She used: Nars Violetta (purple)Nars Showgirl (eyeliner) The rest of it was what I slapped on in the morning, […]

Cream Eyeshadows Part 2

Eye Jellies / Mousse & Watery Apart from Cream Eyeshadows in a jar, the newest additions to my collection have been eye jellies and water colours. I swatched the Maybelline Eye Mousse Colours before and wasn’t madly impressed – the Stila is similar but I think firmer textured and more pigmented than them. Brand: Stila […]

Cream Eyeshadow Special Part 1

PART ONE: Cream Eyeshadows So, I was told a year or so ago that I could not wear eye make up so I decided that a compromise was in order and made it an excuse to load up on cream shadows! Yeah! So I do have a strong love for any type of cream product. […]
