Prettia Hair Dye – Bleach

img-28750000.jpg

I think I was a little too harsh on the Prettia Hair Dye the last time I reviewed it. I grew into the subtle hair colour, a subtle warm brown, and the whole process was fairly easy. Prettia is also very economical – my hair is extremely long, and one box of this does me […]

Sleek Cosmetics make make up for dark skinned ladies, or at least that’s how the brand began. Infact they have tons of make up that is suitable for everyone, but have a base range that extends to dark/black skins which si great. I bought their eyeshadow palettes years ago – and pretty damn good they […]

Sigh.  No matter what you do, you can’t help but get a bad seller or retailer, bad customer service or just a bad product. Manners especially, don’t cost anything, so it really gets my goat when people just can’t respond in a human manner; especially when YOU are buying from THEM. Today I’ve realised I’ve […]

There’s some things in this life that I just don’t trust. They include: 1. Cats that avoid eye contact 2. Ham which is going silvery green in patches 3. Telephone Banking 4. Online Banking 5. Banks 6. Overly soapy soap. Overly soapy soap? What is overly soapy soap? One that is too latherly, too bubbly. […]

Candy Glam Pigments and Lip Gloss

Etsy is a great place to browse for homemade goodies – sellers are usually based in the US but shipping rates tend to be very reasonable. There’s quite a few mineral make up beauty companies on there. Some are good. Some are really quite naff. It depends, it’s a bit of pot luck but these […]

They bascially stick on and hold them up so that you can theoretically, wear strapless, backless clothes, even if you have gazungas. Video: You know […]

Lemming: Cle De Peau Intensifying Cream Eyeliner

cledepeauspring2009intensifyingcreameyeliner.jpg-jpeg-image-262x349-pixels.jpg

If this eyeliner was a man, it would be Wentworth Miller, but straight. If this eyeliner were a meal, it would be a thick slice of kobe beef, cooked to perfection with a dollop of rice on the side. It this was a handbag, it would be a Chanel 2.55 Reissue in metallic grey. If […]
