Art Deco is a lovely brand, excellent value and good quality. The boyf did something useful that didn’t involve eating and went down to the local salon to pick up the Art Deco Autumn/Winter eyeshadows. The model is stunning! The turquoise is nothing like on the picture, it is not so vivid. URBAN CHIC is the new ARTDECO Fashion Colors collection for the Fall/Winter 2008/09. Smoky petrol and sensual shades of berry supply the new […]

If you like Starbucks and am a ‘A’ cup, look away now. Ever the source of fair and balanced reporting, the Daily Mail reports today that women’s boobies can shrink if the lady is drinking 3 cups of coffee or more. Says some scientist that got a D at science college: ‘Drinking coffee can have a major effect on breast size,’ said Helena Jernstroem, a lecturer in experimental oncology at Lund University in Sweden. ‘Coffee-drinking […]
I’m not crazy in love with American Apparel, especially as its expensive in the UK, but I got this email and now I want – no NEED the circle scarf: £21 and comes in 16 colours. Now who am I kidding – as much as I want Mint or Lavender, good old Black, Brown, Olive and Slate are probably the most versatile. I am particuraly in love with the Caplet style. You like?!
Finally, finally I have managed to get my hands on a beauty blender. This pink coloured butt plug shaped sponge is supposed to help blend in anything and everything. Well, ok, foundation. Here’s what they say: How Blend your way to a flawless face! Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application. Beautyblender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. So go ahead, experiment fearlessly with your […]
Make up brushes…check Make up sponges…check Eyelash curlers…check But you know I have been on a discovery of new, whacky and rather cool beauty tools. Next week will be beauty tool week, with one item reviewed per day. As a teaser, here are some of the items…can you guess what they are for? A few of them inflict pain…? Guesses in the comments please!
I have no idea why I bought these blushers, other than the fact that I like the squeezy tubes they come in. It’s art baby, I’m an artist. I love cream/liquid shadows and blushers but I can’t think of one liquid blush I like. Too sheer most of the time, not a nice enough range of shades. I have the Albion liquid blushes – expensive and very “meh”. I disliked Benetint and Positint even more […]
I got a thing for eye pencils. The latest that caught my eye were Anna Sui’s newish waterproof range; Very pretty, in the Anna Sui way. I choose 900 – Olive Green, 200- Violet and 500 – Brown. The Olive green is stunning – just stunning. It almost touches black but still looks like a dark metallic olive. The violet pencil makes a change as its not aubergine or plum, its just a true bright […]
So I got my package from Truffle Shuffle – the shipping was fast and efficient BUT – The pink hoodie I got had black stains down the arm. I know! Back it goes, but what a pain in the bum. The yellow hoodie, at a whopping £40 was very thin and flimsy – back it goes. The Wizard of Oz make up bag is HUAGEEEEEE. It’s practically a wash bag. Back it goes. They better […]
UK Ladies! Nars Cosmetics Online have the Xmas range online, everything but the Multiple in Malaysia – a gold deep bronze. ARGGGHHH! I know! There is also the Orgasm Nail Polish too. I have my eye on the two solo shadows, the super orgasm blusher and the multiple, when it’s out. I won’t buy it online though, I’d rather go to my local Nars counter and get my girl Leena to do a look with […]
Integrate are a Japanese brand from Shiseido, who famously got the Queen B herself, Angelina to be their spokeslady. For me Integrate is a bit of a damp sqib; some of the products are nice like the Aqua Dress Rouge lipsticks but the eyeshadow palettes so far have been really poor; poor texture, poor pigment. So Integrate is not a brand I usually look at. Then comes the new quads. I knew something fishy was […]
Remember when we all died over the Paul & Joe Disney collection and cried when we couldn’t get our hands on it? Well you lucky US ladies will be getting a second chance to buy it this November. Mmmm it still makes me smile after all this time. Here’s the info: Face Color B: for a soft and subtle shimmer, highlight cheeks with Face Color B infused with Paul & Joe’s signature Secret D’or for […]
As soon as I sniffed the super zingy orangey scent of RMK’s new Night Recovery Gel I knew I had to have it. The gel is light textured, smells great and has small white capsules inside that burst and have a thicker cream inside. RMK say: Your intensive skincare begins while you sleep. An overnight treatment that moisturizes with the mix of juicy gel base and soothing capsules. Its sealing effect enwraps your skin with […]
You can never have too many make up books, right? Sometimes there isn’t much that is new to discover in Make Up books but it’s always nice to see some nice pics and get some ideas. I got this book, Eye Candy by Linda Mason from Amazon for £6. Its a small book that is softbound 50 random looks for £6? Bargain. The book is split into futher catergories; Flirtatious, Funky, Glam, Hot etc. Apparently […]
Or perhaps the question is why NOT me? Anyway there are a few things that make my blood run cold. These include: The face of Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud sans Make Up Liver dishes. Who the hell eats liver? When I was at school this was a regular dish, and back then dinnerladies could force you to eat all your dinner, so I used to chew it then spit it out into some tissue, […]
Jessica Alba has just assaulted my TV, showing off her new Revlon Foundation, Custom Creations which has a dial that lets you choose a colour. I haven’t looked for this foundation in the shops yet but since they are advertising it, it should be out… It’s $13.99 so I am guessing it will be around £13 in the UK. You choose a base colour of – Fair/Light, Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Deep and Deep. It reminds […]
I was completely surprised to find German brand Art Deco near me at my local salon! The brand has some good quality mini eyeshadows and the primer for me, is better than Urban Decay because its non drying. From what I remembered, the shadows were about £6 each and the primer was the same. The new range is this: I’ve seen the turquoise and it is NOT as vivid in real life but it’s still […]
I’ve discovered a lil shop called Truffle Shuffle that sells retro (well not true retro) items, – t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, a few bags. The range isn’t massive but there’s some really cool things that caught my eye, being an 80s child. I bought a barbie t-shirt – Yuk, Paris Hilton wore it. Still I think it’s cute A hoodie!: I like the rainbow swirl detail Then I got a zip up hoodie. I love the […]
Popped into the shops today for some tweezers since my beloved Shu’s have gone AWOL. I got these little tweezerman ones for £12: I had a quick look at the Bliss stall and decided some other items were in order. I am not at all impressed with their lame online customer service so I thought it would be better to buy in person. I got Thinny Thin Chin – I got a double chin issue […]
Soooooo I’ve just watched the first episode of the US Kath and Kim. It’s soooooooooooooooooo bad. It’s so baaaddddddd. I don’t get it. Can anyone who is American and watched it tell me if they get it? Is it true to any facet of American culture? The original Kath & Kim which I love dearly, to me is very strongly Aussie and that’s what makes it special. And there’s no Sharon! Sharon is essential!
There’s some collections you see that just give you judders – Paul & Joe’s was one of them. My haulage arrived and I haven’t been SO excited for a long time. The shoe box: These are the free gifts I got – a set of three matching bags:
