I have a confession to make. I am totally lazy when it comes to apply moisturizer to my body – it takes too long you see. Nevertheless I am always happy to try out anything organic and nice smelling – so I tried some Organic Surge Body Lotion. Organic Surge avoid parabens, SLS, sulphates, synthetic perfume, chemical antioxidants mineral oils, petroleum, propylene glycol and aggressive foaming agents. Excellent! There are some skincare, hand care and […]
There are some things that I just have to have. These include: 1. Reeces Peanut Butter Cups on demand 2. Milk Latte before 9.30am every weekday 3. A parcel a day – even if its something hideous… Add Guerlain Kohl powder liners to the list. When I saw this Lagon Bleu liner a part of the Summer Collection I squealed for I am a collector of these lovely little liners. Lagon Bleu, I am *sure* […]
I have tried a few of the long lasting style lip products in the past – Max Factor’s, Lip Ink, L’oreal. My experiences with them haven’t been wonderful, mainly because they dry my lips out big time. I wanted to see if Revlon’s new Color (American spelling!) Stay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick would do better. Up to 12 hours of color apparently! They say: * Food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat * One-step application- No […]
I don’t just buy make up I don’t need! – I love to buy gifts for people and crafty arty things. Anyway this some random bits I bought this week. I had a hellish trip to Primark at lunchtime this week. It was awful. The Primark crowd is an unusual one; a mixture of nutters, students, the unemployed* and bizarrely enough, mothers with several children who feel the need to bring their kids to the […]

What does a good time waster do when she has about – ooohh 50 things to do? She makes a lipstick palette! I have quite a few NYX round lipsticks (which are excellent considering the price) so I decided to give 28 the chop chop into one palette: Here’s the palette – which is NOT magnetic! D’oh! The pans are super loose, so I had to use UHU Non Permanent sticky glue dots but this […]
Skin Doctors is a range founded in Oz, selling Cosmeceuticals (products that are somewhere between cosmetics and pharmaceutials). I tried out the Instant Eye Lift on my tired, tired eyes – a clear, very fluid solution that tightens up the area around the eyes. They say: Instant eye lift is a temporary eye lifting serum that painlessly smoothes away the signs of ageing in just a couple of minutes. Under-eye wrinkles, bags, line and puffiness […]
For some reason my hair does not live up to its Asian sterotype of long, dark, strong, glossy, lush. Instead its dry and difficult to manage – has been for a long time. There were times when birds would come and rest on my shoulder, for Christssake! I have reviewed Organic Colour Systems shampoo before (its wonderful) but when I got the Hydrate Leave-in conditioner, I wasn’t too sure. Mainly because I have always had […]
