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 […]

UPDATE: I regret buying the stupid eyeshadow palette so much. It’s pigmented but still a bit chalky and I still concede that there should be one shimmer in the palette. Argh! I wish I could get a refund! Do you like YSL? I liked the brand although its not one I buy from that often. […]
If Estee Lauder was a pair of pants, they would be granny pants, and not even good ones that suck you in, the ones that are elasticated and are fraying slightly. It’s not a brand I buy from at all – just not interesting enough, but I found myself drawn to their new Double Wear […]
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 […]
It must be all the pork pies, because I am getting ruddier as time goes by. There are green concealers but I don’t normally have the inclination to start painting vert onto my skin. I have tons and tons of green correctors and concealers, ok? TONS. I don’t use any that regularly. Sorry my typing […]
I have quite a few cameras but I was still looking for an extremely fast and colour true compact. I wanted something I could carry every day without much hassle. Here’s my new camera! Being a Sony it’s pretty expensive for a compact but they have really clear, beautiful lenses. On the other hand I […]
When my pores said to me, hey beyatch, I need to do on a diet, I sat the first thing I though of was….Peppermint! No not really. But the idea of peppermint + pores sounds good doesn’t it? Peppermint Pore Diet Peel Off Mask is: A peel-off mask that gently removes dead skin and controls […]
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 […]
Check out my poll in the sidebar (to the right, to the right!). I am trying to decide what to do next on the blog, how we can – in business speak – move forward – take it further – improve etc. etc. etc. Click if you have an opinion!
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. […]
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 […]
UPDATED 06/FEB/2013: Luca from Nirvana Naturals got in touch with me on the 29th January 2013, almost 4 years after this post was put up…my final line was “I am going to email them and ask for a refund, let’s see what happens” Luca wanted to point out that they went through the payment records […]
Kiss (or Passion NY) is not a Japanese brand I pay that much attention too, but sometimes they come up with cute stuff. I noticed their new shades in the Rouge Kiss G range (glossy type). Kiss always pick girls to model for them that look around 13 and are as pasty as hell. Hey, […]

A bit like granny pants and tea cosies, Elizabeth Arden is not one of the counters I ever stop at. I used to like 8 hour cream but with so many other fancy goodies around its not something I’ve touched for a while. I was having one of those Friday afternoon strolls after work and […]
As soon as I saw this pic, I knew I had to have it: Jill Stuarts ultra pretty Pure Day Care Powder is not just a cosmetic item. It has an SPF of 15, is brightening (it says so in the title!), and can deal with problems like spots, oily bits and so on. I’ve […]
So I was browsing for (new) undey-wears on eBay and what do I find? The Faveo Freedom Bra! They look like cups but are made for ladies with big chi-chis. 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 […]
