So there I was digging my new YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick – it does have the most pigmented dreamy texture okay? The colour in question is a soft, baby pink, the kind I thought would be rocking with a smokey eye. I did a smokey eye with Nars Kyoto Pencil (oh how I love) and star sailor (wasn’t bothered about it, now love it). I applied it and as we were in the car in […]

Now every Friday will be a Man Friday. A fine specimen of a man will be celebrated once a week (but I may run out by, oooh week 3). This week the man is…. Liam Neeson. No, not this one – That’s Ralph Fiennes, the pervy one who sleeps with random air hostesses and can’t keep it in his pants. This is Liam Neeson – Liam is in an EXCELLENT new film called Taken where […]
Random pics for fun; No kitties were harmed during the making of these shots. What can I say – they’re camera whores!
You know how there’s some things that just make you go, Cor! Like; Errr, wait bad photo…like… and… Something else made me go Cor! It was YSL’s new Rouge Volupte Lipstick. The case is just STUN. NING. This is what they say about it: The cream texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips, for a delightful feeling and an exceptional gliding effect. A nutri-protective vegetal complex takes care of nourishes your lips, keeping them […]
I spotted a bargain at ASOS.com – the Paul & Joe Sweetie palette reduced to £12. (Before I carry on I dislike Asos intensely for their crap returns policy and the immense possiblities their clothes come in. I do look cos I like the styling of their outfits and they have nice accessories). So ASOS are stocking Paul & Joe! I love the brand but it seems like a waste of time to me – […]
I went along to the Nars Selfridges event today, with the Make Up Artist Uzo. Uzo is one of Nars’s international artists, and has worked with all the stars… A very charming and nice lady who exuded confidence…the other Nars guys and gals were clearly in awe. Anyway, I sat my bum down in the seat which was in full view of the public. Eek! Champagne was served but I don’t drink so I ate […]
I just liked the idea of this SANA Soy moisturiser – made with the goodness of Soya Beans! This is a mild moisturizing lotion with the following major ingredients, it helps make your skin moist, soft & smooth. Major Ingredients 1. Soybean Isoflavone – moisturize your skin effectively and regain its elasticity 2. Soybean Extracts – as supplement for extra moisturizing performance 3. Natural Plant Collagens – carrot extracts for moisturizing, while beta-carotene helps protect […]
I have never used Philosophy skincare before, although I love the little messages they have on front of their packaging. It always seemed like quite a wholesome brand tome so I was keen to take this Make Up Optional Kit home. For a rate of £56, you get four full size products: 8 ounce purity made simple one-step facial cleanser 1 ounce when hope is not enough firming and lifting serum 2 ounce hope in […]
I had a little dabble in Esprique’s new base and some Aube products today. Aube is brand that I always seem to purchase and 85% I’m not that happy with the goods. I have the other Aube Mascaras and they do nothing for me – too much lash floppage. This is the new comb – I’m not really keen on comb mascaras, I find they take a bit longer to apply and don’t do much […]
I bought some Indian hair products off ebay – lots of Indian women have natural, gorgeous healthy hair right? I bought a selection of oils for my sensitive scalp. Light hair oil: I’m disappointed that this is not a spray but I can easily transfer the product to a spray bottle (well no really because I can’t seem to get the protective cap off – tried kitchen knife, everything). Anyway this smells lovely and refreshing […]
Random haulings of the week…it’s been a busy one but are are some beauty snippets – Bobbi Brown Mauve: I like the BB raspberry palette very much and this mauve is nice too – although I’m not sure why I need such a huge pan of blush…my face isn’t that big….anyway, the lip colours are pretty sheer and they eyeshadows are not as soft as the Raspberry palette ones but its still a stellar palette. […]
SANA is one of those brands from Japan that isn’t clearly defined; they remind me of Benefit in many ways, in that they have a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a dabble in mascaras, a dabble in base products. I love SANA though. I always have fun trying out their new goodies and I LOVE their big curl mascara – but its a bummer to get off. Check out some of […]
I have a box, called the BNIBB. The Brand New In Box Box. It’s where I keep all my new packaged goods that I haven’t had the chance to use or been able to bring myself to use yet like… Limited edition Majolica Majorca Mascaras…. The whole MAC barbie collection…… The Disney Paul & Joe range…… The Goache De Chanel kit I must have bought a decade ago….. Having a rummage I found two new […]
I’ve been saying for a long time I will finally organise the haul hopefully, it will be a useful swatch for people. I’m torn between photographing everything separately or in groups? ie. all Nars blushers together. Or would you prefer everything separate? Once I get started I’ll try and do everything in one go (yes, theres THAT much to go through!). Let me know how you’d like to see it! Also – I’ve had a […]
When I spotted this Lola Golightly Kit I went into spams. Lazy. Girls. Dream. Never tried Lola before this but always thought the packaging was cute. At £24.99 this kit is an All in One – I have lots of palettes that cater for the eye, for the eye and cheek, for the eye cheek and lip, but for the eye, cheek, lips, lashes? That, I don’t have. This palette has: 10 Lipsticks , 1 […]
Recently, though I have liked what Shu has to offer, I haven’t loved it. Infact the last few collections over the last year have been hit and miss; too dull, too hard, too chalky. I was ready to pass on the Instinct Collection too but then….I found out one side was a cream eyeshadow! I love cream eyeshadow! So onwards we go: Tantilizer is very nice – the website says its: Brilliant shades of green […]
I have had a very itchy, sore scalp for a while. Whilst I am always looking for new treatments for it; creams, oils, shampoos, conditioners, I still like to have a bit of colour in it. Generally I have salon highlights and since this dye doesn’t touch my scalp, its fine. However, I’ve grown tired of the Jessica Alba light hair on dark skin look. I want some depth, goddammit. Now, I remember when I […]
…and I have the best spelling skills in the world. According to a Blistex survey, people would most like Keira’s lips, no Angelina’s trout pout. Lips…hmm…smile….yeuch. Keria shouldn’t smile, really. She instantly looks like a vampire when she opens her mouth…. Who does have nice lips? I think Donatella Versace has lovely, thick lips…I kid, I kid.
…can’t log in…..seems to be ok though. New posts galore coming right up!
