Boo Hiss.

Urgh. The Apprentice made me physically sick. Just some highlights – essentially this week, they just have to make greeting cards for new occasions. BTW – Miss Piggy Claire, says that Matt Lucas has ‘short man syndrome’ – and she has? Fat Orange Cow Syndrome. Ideas they got – Jenny Big Chin’s idea – Eco […]

Weekend Ramblings

Hey – how’s your week been? Mine has been fragmented and somewhat discerning. Nevertheless, we can only keep our chin up and keep going, no? Today the Wii Fit was released in the UK. Of course I got my greasy mitts on one: I haven’t played with it yet because I’m too lazy to plug […]

Giorgio Armani Illuminator

Want radiance? Want it all over? I do. Some illuminates are so pearly they are better off in concentrated areas. I wanted something pinkish, pearly that I could use all over for a dewy look. So I found this baby: Giorgio Armani Illumniator in no. 7 which is a very pale pink with pearly reflects. […]

Guerlain Loose Kohl in 00 Glow

a Know how I became obsessed with Guerlain Kohls? I discovered, *shock horror* there was a shade I didn’t own and this was completely different to the other smokey metallics I own! Glow 00, is described as a whitish peach, great for highlighting. It is supposed to be a limited edition, brought back for one […]

Paul & Joe Primer

A girl can’t have enough eye primers, right? After all, what good is eye make up that doesn’t last? I previously reviewed a load of them, but the search never ends! I love Paul & Joe eyeglosses. They smell great, and leave a truly glossy sheen to the skin. I had to try their primer, […]

Boots No.7 Tropical palettes

I am in love with Boots No. 7 Instant Radiance foundation. The foundation has nice medium coverage, smooth application (the brush does work) and the colour match is great! Love it! So I decided to indulge further in these extremely beautiful eye shadows from the tropical collection: Pretty, huh? Is it easy to use, being […]

Dior Matte Bronzer SPF

There is nothing worse than a person that glows luminous orange. Its not just ordinary folk, even celebs, who should know better do it! Having said that, since the extremely dull cosmetics companies release bronzer after bronzer after bronzer during the summer months I may as well play ball. I bought the matte Dior Bronzer […]

Korres Lip Butter & Bronzer

Korres is one of those brands that has long escaped my attention, untill last week, in the evilness that is TK MAXX, I noticed a bundle pack, costing £19.99 that had two blushers, two foundations, two lip glosses and a powder. Good Value huh? I’ve found that there’s no point in buying foundation three shades […]

For UK ladies, (or gents) House of Fraser is having their blue cross day – 25% off for clothes and accessories, 10% for cosmetics. The House of Fraser near me, Kendals, sells a lot of the big brands, MAC, Laura Mercier, Guerlain, Benefit, Aveda, Clinique, Chanel, Clarins etc. etc. etc. Since I have my eyes […]

Boots Protect & Perfect ruins my Sunday

So THIS is why Sunday should be a day of rest – because boredom leads to spending and over eating. In case you have never heard of Boots Protect and Perfect, a documentary called Horizon examined beauty products and whether they worked or not. They tried out a lot of creams and one the mentioned […]

Shu Uemura Art of Hair

Shu Uemura have a snazzy range of Hair Products (which can be viewed here. Shu Uemura does hair? Well, all the Japanese ladies I know do have banging hair. There is the Shampoo, Conditioner range, and also the styling range. With the styling range, the first concept is to – Unify – with a Depsea […]

Too Faces Galaxy VS Nars Eyeshadows

Boots had a great offer on buy any two products from Urban Decay or Too Faced and get £5 off. So I invested in the Galaxy Collection (anything else from Too Faced can probably be found on Ebay for a fraction of the price): I did some swatches to compare the Too Faced collection to […]

Guerlain Loose Kohls

When I catch onto a fad, I don’t do things by halves. After seeing the great reviews of Guerlain Loose Kohls, I purchased a few colours: We have Noir – BlackBrun – er, Brown, quite a warm toned oneBleu – Blue, almost a aqua teal shade. Limited Shades – Oriental Bronze – A cool greeny […]

Sofina UV Lucent

As I get older I worry about the dreaded sun and wrinkles – so Sunscreen protection was something to consider. I own Clinqiue City block SPF 30, which resembles a greyish thick white cream, that leaves you looking like a corpse. I own RMK’s sunscreen,SPF 30, which is nice without a colour cast but is […]

RMK Makeover and Haul

I went to RMK today for their launch of the Curl Separate Mascara. I tried out the product, which was fine – lengthening and separating, but I didn’t love it enough to spend £20 on it. But I had my eye on the Quad, 06, a mix of minty greens and black – It can […]

Tiffa Eyeliner, Base and Mascara

Tiffa is a Kanebo Brand that I have largely ignored until I saw a review of the Base on Vanessa’s blog. The base was a spidery black thing – urgh! Disgusted but fascinated at the same time, I ordered this prodct from Adambeaty, and the Mascara to go with it (lengthening natch) and two of […]
