strapya-world-bread-from-strapya-oven.jpg

I love looking at Strapya World, a rather eccentric shop based in Japan which has lots of cute, weird, funny, useful, useless goodies, (specializing in phone charms but also other bits and pieces.) I spotted a cute bread based phone charm range – doughnuts! bun rolls! bagels! danish! and my favourite, white bread! Then I […]

Review: Barefoot Botanicals Rosa Lipbalm

barefoot-lip-balm-1.jpg

Two things you can’t have enough of. Reeces Peanut Butter Cups and Lip Balm. I have far too many lip balms already but I couldn’t resist another not with a name like Rosa Fina! Scented with Persian Rose and Cardamom, no less! It sounds like the perfect ice cream. They say: Rosa Fina smooch penetrating […]

Guess which cream gave me lumpy skin?

It was Elemis Pro Collage Marine Cream! I have used this before for a few weeks with a little itching but nothing as bad as this. This cream has created a cosmic explosion of red craters across my face. The lumpy ones that will take at least a week to settle down. This marine cream […]

Revlon Matte hit the UK shores not too long ago and I decided to take advantage of the £2 off the range making the eyeshadows just a little ocer £3 and the lipsticks around £5. There are also blushers and kohl liners in the range. I bought 5 items: Eyeshadows in: Vintage Lace (white), Venetian […]

My arch nemesis has arrived: Tan-go Tan by Tango

untitled

I have a friend who is a jolly shade of bright orange after using too much fake tan.  We were shopping for foundation for her and there came the realisation that there were no foundations in luminous, bright orange (unless you want to buy collection 2000 – hey that stuff turns orange on my skin). […]

Review: Colorsport 24 Hour Eyeliner

dsc009170000.jpg

In the corner of Boots, I have seen Colorsport sulking in the corner of the lashes/beauty accessories corner but have never stopped to try any of it out – it just didn’t look very inspiring. Now you know I love my Japanese long lasting eyeliners – boy do they stay put. So when I say […]

microsoft-word.jpg

theBalm is a make up brand from San Francisco which reminds me of Benefit with its retro packaging and multi purposes cosmetics – but its better. I recommend Stainiac which is a liquid blush or lip colour (very natural, non-streaky) and Hot Mama which is an absolutely gorgeous light pink/peach/gold for the cheek and lips […]

Models Own Make Up Brand: Lip Gloss, Eyeshadows and Nail Polish

models-own.jpg

I cooed when I first saw the brand Models Own – the sheer scale of pigment eyeshadows had my excited, the fact that the items were affordable had me excited. The shadows remind me of Barry M – is Models Own a successor? When it comes to the loose powder eyeshadow there are a whopping […]
