This isn’t the best example, but CHECK IT OUT! Separated at birth? It’s hard finding a picture of Myleene when she doesn’t have a maniacal grin on her face but I sort of managed it. I forget she used to take her kit off for lads magazines a lot…anyway, just a random thought of the day!

Seeing as I will probably get a ham sandwich for Valentine’s Day, I may as well drop some hints. My new love is Illamasqua, right? Well they have 3 Valentine’s gift sets which should suit every useless boyfriend: They Say: Illamasqua celebrates revealing your alter ago and brings you the perfect must-have Valentine’s gifts. With three amazing products including a pre-filled 4-Colour Lip Palette, a pre-filled Valentine’s Palette and a Femme Fatale Kit – it’s […]
Adambeauty will get quite exciting next week as he brings in Visee, Majolica Majorca, Lavshuca, MAQUillage – he tends to upload them in chunks so it can be worth holding on if you are waiting for him to list a specific item. I nearly bought a Visee palette then realised I am going to save my pennies and do a once over Illamasqua. That’s right – I am going to be sensible about this! (kind […]
Baby Gomez in now just over three months. Baby G has inherited something from her Western blood it seems – long long eyelashes.
I made a medium, albeit expensive haul from salonskincare.com a few weeks back – some face mask, some new tweezers, random bit of crap that somehow added up to a small fortune. I was about to use the Korres Scalp Scrub today and… I don’t normally check expiry dates but… 05/08? I do believe we are in 01/2009! Emailed them 2 days ago and no response as of yet. I could of course, keep on […]
It’s that time of the year when the Spring collections will pop their head up to say Hello! Nothing from the major brands are grabbing me and whilst some of the Japanese ranges are, but not enough for me to exchange my £££ for very few $$$. Instead I think I will do a illamasqua haul and see if I can stop myself from buying anything else this month! Meanwhile – my infectious skin disease […]
UPDATE: Pronounciation. ILL-AH-MASK-A I am in trouble. You are in trouble. Hold my hand, and we’ll try to get thorough this together. A black envelope containing some Illamasqua goodies arrived on my desk a few days ago: We got: Excite powder blusher – a brightish orange-coral You get a HUGE pan. Huge. It’s so pigmented that you only need a tap and it blends away nicely. Intense blue-teal eyeshadow (powder): Highly pigmented – sheer for […]
Something happens to me when I am confronted with potential greatness – the tightening of the chest, the butterflies in the stomach. My head gets fuzzy and my brain does some figures to calculate just how much yen is going to leave my bank account. Confronted by potential greatness. It’s like (being a man and) spotting a blonde, pert bottom and glossy hair, wondering what beauty lurks on the other side, only for you to […]
I had an itch, an itch that could only be solved by buying Nars Flaming Dust lipstick – alas, I was far too wet and lazy to dash across to Selfridges so silly me, I went into Space NK. I already moaned about their rubbish service, and they still are, rubbish. Maybe it was because I splodged in with my big ugly round toed boots and padded coat with a missing button onto their lovely […]
Because of the current economic woes, cosmetic giants, like L’oreal, Shiseido and Estee Lauder are reporting greater sales of cosmetics. It’s believed that during these hard times, as most of us have to give up the extravagant purchases, (new bathroom, holidays, Chanel handbags…ahem) Ladies have been giving themselves little boosts by buying little affordable treats – like Lipsticks! From the Telegraph: Recent sales figures from some of the world’s big cosmetic companies – L’Oréal, Beiersdorf […]
I choked on my pumpkin seeds when I saw this one. Chelsy Davy, Prince Ginger Harry’s now ex girlfriend, a mix of piggy-benico del toro-oompa lumpa and posh blonde bimbo has been layering the tan: I can’t even begin to understand how you can not look in the mirror and go “URGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGH!” then use a pumice stone on your face in an attempt to get it all off. This is an epic epic fail. Home […]
I love Jill Stuart! Everyone loves Jill Stuart, right? I do think their eyeshadows palettes, for all their prettiness are a little Meh for the price but I love everything else they do. Especially the eye jellies. Alas, I sold and a kidney and got hold of these babies, from the Spring 2009 LE collection: Champagne is a shimmery pale gold – it’s very Meh, nothing special. As a Jelly eye colour devotee I don’t […]
I already mentioned my love for Miffy and Yuskin collaborating and here are the goodies; Cute! Cute! Yet more boxes to hoard. The main thing I have noticed is that the cream and lotion are both fairly liquid and the tradition gel like yellowy texture of Yuskin is NOT present with this range. Both the cream and lotion are white and sink in easily. If you want a heavy duty cream like the original Yuskin […]
You know I dig green! Kate’s new palette, Diamond Cut eyes, had 3 shades and a gold/silver glittery addition to it. I got GN-1, of course. I also got Gradical eyes in BG-1 which is the perfect aqua for me! Guess what colours I will be wearing this week!
I spotted these on eBay – the sets were very affordable at £10 for 6 colours: What’s cool about these is that they have tapered brush heads, meaning you use them for nail art – the odd dot here, the odd swirl – so easy to use too! The colours: I believe this is a US brand, and it’s pretty cool because there isn’t anything like this in the UK. You can of course use […]
I am not a particularly big fan of Lush – too smelly, too crumbly, too much glittter. Anyway I had a perusal because at the moment they have ‘Grab Bags’. That is, Christmas leftovers. A £5 bag has £15 worth of goodies. A £10 bag is worth £35 and a £15 bag is worth £50. Being week, I got a £10 bag too see what I would end up with…it was certainly a huge bag: […]
Just a quick note. Emails are a bit sticky of late. If you need to email me cos you want to buy something from the shop or just general chatter and I don’t reply within 12 hours, just leave me a comment! I am also not getting comment notifications so bear with me if there is a delay!
The Year of the Ox, which symbolizes stability, growth and strength. How will you grow this year?
There’s nothing better to make gloomy Mondays go faster then a little haul: I got SANA Extra Quick Mascara: SANA mascara’s generally speaking are excellent so I can’t wait to try this out. Bihada Base: I wasn’t that impressed to see it was silconey as opposed to a cream based but this is quite unusual – it has small beads in it which disappear into the skin and it did really leave me with an […]
Jessica Simpson is annoying even if you just look at her – but lately she seems to have been eating one too many Eccles cakes. She is definately looking meatier, right? What do you think? I actually don’t have much against Jessica, I think she’s a terrible singer but she does get on my rack like Sienna Miller does or Kate Beckinsale. To be fair, she is now normal woman sized – she’s chunky for […]
