Exchange Rate Moan Pt. 592


With a new American president, the credit crunch, violent crime on the up and I want to rant today about…the exchange rate. The Lavshuca eye colour sticks are out now on Adambeauty. A few months ago I would have got one of every colour. But check this out: $152 = £98?!??! I can’t do it, […]

Dior Pink Essence 351 Creme de Gloss Xmas LE!


I have talked about Dior’s Creme De Gloss a few times, here and here. I know some of you ladies just dig it, but I’m not a fan. Nice texture but lifeless colours and dull lips on me. I tried the fig and beige previously and gave them both away. Cue Pink Essence a LE […]

Oldboy with Will Smith?!?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!


As if Sarah Michelle Gellar in a remake of The Grudge and Jessica Alba in The Eye wasn’t bad enough, rumours have it that Will Smith and Steven Spielberg may remake the Korean masterpiece, Oldboy. *spoilers* *spoilers* *spoilers* Oldboy is a classic. It’s not your cup of tea if you dislike violent and dark films. […]

I love your hair, Elina


Recently evicted? kicked off? removed? America’s Next Top Model contestant, Elina had a drastic make over, a weave in red: I loveeeeee it, I loveeeeee it, I loveeeeee it. Is it ginger? Tell me it isn’t ginger. Now trying to locate a hair dye of a similar colour, but it has to be ok for […]

Laura White voted off!?!?!? What??!?!


Although I can’t stand Cheryl Tweedy, I do/did think Laura White was so amazing and special and was rooting for her to win. Now she’s been voted off – I can’t believe it! Stupid Daniel and Eeeeogghaannn are still in! I wonder if the other X Factor judges are trying to teach Cheryl a lesson […]

Worship the little Irish Imp


Louis Walsh just called Cheryl “That was my best performace of yours” Cole “Little Miss Showbiz over there” (and something else I can’t remember) cos Shezza said Louis was turning his crappy band JLS into Westlife. That shut her up. Cheryl knows nothing about anything, she needs to stick to looking gorgeous and showing how […]

Takako Fleur Beauty Book


I am always mooching on, as they have a lot of Asian beauty books. It’s hit and miss – the good ones have lots of visuals (since I can’t read them) and just look great. Some are very text heavy or may be really sparse. Takako is a Japanese make up artist and from […]

Chanel Brun Lame Dry Eyeliner Duo Xmas 08


I had no idea this was coming out but as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it: There is a black version of this (pic here). This one is a choc brown, matte and sparkly. The idea is that you get 2 brushes a stumpy one for soft effects and […]

Christian Dior Twlight Palette Xmas 08


Twilight Palette is one of the 2 released for the Christmas Dior Collection. This one is not LE, the other one is. You know what gets on my nerves? When a SA doesn’t know what is LE or not. Is this LE? Yes it all is. I go home and check and its not LE […]

Comment of the month

You regulars better step up your comments because Anonymous left a comment that took me 15 minutes to read. I’ve decided to award her (I presume its a her) comment of the month. Here it is: Anonymous said… I have just watch Gordon Ramsey 1hr cook show and he cooked with Amanda Holden. I had […]

Stupid Purfume Names


Now that Christmas is upon us, purfumes will be flying of the counters quicker than ever.  (tip: male readers. Your missus does not want Chanel No.5 so step away from the counter). I got an email from Strawberry Net, which has some great deals on scents (people have questioned the sell by date of Strawberry […]

My new make up bag


Every few months I’ll decide I need a new make up bag! Here is my latest: Little Red Riding Hood. Isn’t it cute? It’s from Etsy the seller is SKO. She makes the cutest little pouches ever, although because they are handmade she doesn’t have many on, and once they have gone, it takes a […]

Dior Creme De Gloss in Pink Essence (Rose De Essence)

I didn’t love Dior’s Creme De Gloss at all when it was first released.  Yes it is a nice texture, but I hated how dull it looked on the lips and I hated the colour selection; I owned Beige and Fig which I just found so dull dull dull. So back at the Dior counter, […]

America’s Next Top Model


I admit, I love America’s Next Top Model, even though Tyra Banks it a complete nut job. “You have so much light” Usually said to the girl being kicked out, as if that’s any consolation. I’d rather hear, “You have so much booty” than “You have so much light”. “You need to smile with your […]

November @ Cosmetic Candy

Dear Ladies (and Gents), Can you believe we are well into November? My birthday is on the 20th and I am feeling old.  No plans for the day (unless anyone wants to surprise me, hint hint) perhaps I should take the day off work and book into a salon, get my hair done etc? This […]

RMK Haul


I know, too many hauls but check this out: I’ve been looking for a sparkly, shimmery white sheen for the lips: This is RMK Irresistible lips C in no. 5 Shiny White. It is colourless but has lots of sparkles and a light sheen – it can be used of course on top of a […]

YSL Quint disappointment


So off I went on my lunch, accosting the YSL counter full of excitement.  Remember I was looking the for YSL Quints – the green, lilac and blue all looked amazing. Swipe.  Swipe.  Swipe. Ok they were ok.  The green is the softest and nicest in my opinion but the colours were oh-so-flat.  Some of […]

Build your own palette on Bobbi Brown


Bobbi Brown will now let you put your own palette together online with it’s stupid extremely realistic blocks of colour that represent ‘eyeshadows’ and ‘blushers’. A month ago I would have dropped £100 for the Xmas Bobbi Brown palettes, but now, 30 days later I am glad I didn’t bother. I’m over it, dah-ling.  This […]

Bad bad


I’m not completely thrilled with  This site is a sister to, an Asian version of Amazon if you like.  You can get cds, book, games, toys etc. from YesAsia (it’s still a pretty cluttered site) and you can use it as I do, for Japanese and Chinese language beauty books – shopping is […]

NYX Lipgloss and Lipstick Haul


I know you US ladies have NYX all over the place but it’s unavailble in the UK. It’s a shame because it looks like such a cheap but cheerful brand, lots of colour choices and of a good standard. I can’t think of anything in the UK like that, that isn’t too expensive to be […]
