Comparison: MAC Hello Kitty Fun & Games and Nars Gina Blusher

img-13610000.jpg

A reader was asking me if Hello Kitty Fun and Games was similar to Nars Gina (or different enough to warrant a purchase) so here is a belated comparison: Yeah, Nars packaging always gets dusty. So irritating. I noticed from my even older Nars stuff, it’s got sticky and some of the packaging bubbles and […]

Barry M New Dazzle Dust Colours!

img-11280000.jpg

Barry M dazzle dusts are a really good alternative to MAC Pigments – I have both (about 60 MAC piggies) and I generally find Barry M less messy to work with (finer textured generally speaking). They also cost £4.50 and Boots tend to have 3 for 2 or special offers on from time to time. […]

My day to day make up bags

img-13680000.jpg

I am not having a good day. Today is TOH’s birthday and things have already gone wrong. A courier was supposed to deliver something – at 9.30am the bell goes, there’s a mad dash to the door and they’ve already done a runner, as if they WANTED me to miss my delivery. Very frustrating. And […]

Enter Dr Nick Lowe’s Anti Blemish Range: There are four products in the Anti Blemish range, two types of cleanser, a day cream and blemish gel. I went back later […]

Bargain Beauty Find: Stargazer Cake Liners

img-14150000.jpg

I was browsing eBay when I saw some cake eyeliners by Stargazer. Stargazer is one of those funky, goth-emo type brands that I think, appeal to a teen/young adult audience, and is very affordable because of it. I love cake eyeliners! I love the way its like painting, but quite often, although some eyeshadows can […]

My internet is still off at home! Thus blogging is sporadic and everything takes twice at long. Have you ever tried ordering a takeaway over the mobile internet? Well don’t. It took me an HOUR. What do you mean I should have just cooked? I have sore fingers! Very annoying, bear with me. I can’t […]

img-10870000.jpg

After the SANA Make Essence under eye concealer – reviewed here, comes the SANA pore concealer! It’s cute isn’t it? I really liked Make Essence concealer although its a LIGHT under eye concealer. I personally hate thick and cakey concealers under the eye and I find most will crease eventually. CUTEEEEE!!!! I have never met […]

The light up lip gloss

img-10490000.jpg

I reviewed New ID Cosmetics the other day and someone emailed to ask me what the light up lip gloss looks like, so here it is! It gives off a blue tinted light. It works well in the dark in the day it’s not the perfect light, and it always comes off, so if you […]

chanel1

What a day I’ve had.  Had a pretty good week but Friday has crushed me in terms of general stressful happenings.  You know when you head hurts, your hands are a little shaky and you have odd bowel movements.  Oh, that’s just me.

What do you do if you aren’t keen on a product? You can 1. Return it if you live in the US? Not in the UK though – you don’t get refunds on a cosmetic items AT ALL (unless you break out in a hideous rash but I bet you would still have a fight […]

I am always in pursuit of the wave in the hair – there was a time when my hair just did it naturally but it has been misbehaving of late.  I bought this Bed Head Foxy Curls Extreme Mousse a few months back even though I am not a fan of Tigi or Bed head products […]
