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: […]
