The £1 Primark Eyeshadow Test!

img-12860000.jpg

Even I can’t resist the occasional whip around Primark. They do have some great bargains – I love their oil cloth cosmetic bags which are strong, waterproof and spacious for only £4. The best time to visit Primark is first thing or last thing. If you go about 15 mins before closing time, just watch the usually s-l-o-o-w-w-w staff suddenly become madly efficient. You also avoid the crowds of slack jawed people, usually entire families […]

Chanel No.5 Eau Premiere Fragrance!

img-16330000.jpg

I wanted it. And now it’s mine! A-ha-ha-a-ha-ha-ha-a-ha-ha-ha-ha *evil cackle* I adore this scent and I am not one for fragrances and I’m not one for Chanel No.5 but this lighter, fresher, sweet smelly is just divine. It’s so fresh but elegant at the same time. Says Vogue.com: The seductive, 90-year old scent, developed by Coco herself will undergo a reinvention that retains the best-loved notes of the original – neroli, jasmine, ylang ylang, amber […]

Illamasqua Haul! (again)

img-15900000.jpg

I seem to be unable to resist Illamasqua at the moment. Here is another haul: Gimp (pure matte black) and Fatal (deep matte purple): I was concerned about how so many of the shadows from Illamasqua are matte. I asked Leena, who is a senior artist on Illamasqua in Manchester and she said the creator, Alex Box wanted to create a range that was suitable for all age ranges. Older people or anyone with overly […]

Muji for beauty accessories

img-18250000.jpg

Muji is a Japanese shop full of simplistic home, kitchen, bathroom and clothing goodies. Even though the style is minimalistic, they always seem to have lots of lovely designs and random bits of stuff to die for. The other half loves Muji for men’s clothing and I like it for kitchenware (like my sideways fridge jug) and stationary. I also love their acrylic storage items. Muji is also great for beauty supplies! They have a […]

Beauty Quickie: Barry M Dazzle Dust – Parrot Green

img-15640000.jpg.jpg

Another one of the Barry M Spring Colours is Parrot Green! Barry M Dazzle Dusts cost £3.95 from Boots and Superdrug. You know I LOVE greens. This is a super hot green! EOTD: I used Barry M’s Parrot Green Dazzle Dust as the main colour, Barry M Teal DD on the inner corner, Illamasqua Pigment in Fervent wet as a liner, Jill Stuart Champange Gold Eye Jelly as a highlight and Nars Kaliste Eyeliner Pencil […]

Review: Garnier Vital Restore

img-10990000.jpg

I got samples of Garnier Vital Restore Cream and Restore Day Serum (Anti Age Spot) which is made for mature ladies (aged 50 and over) so I passed it on to my momma to test. My mother would like to emphasize that she is NOT 50. She is in her 40s – the back end of it perhaps but she is absolutely in no way, shape or form 50. Not that there is anything wrong […]

Sula Paint & Peel Nail Polish

img-11260000.jpg

Sula is a brand that is quite hard to get hold of but they have some super cute and nice products. I already love the Fragrance range – I also tested some Paint & Peel Nail Polish in Dove (grey) and Azure (teal). Here are the shades you can buy: I want Sorbet and Watermelon! I’d also like the Metallic top coat – these colours are matte so if you want some shimmer, I am […]
