So last week my mama called to say I had a mysterious package in a black envelope at home. Black envelopes = Illamasqua…but I hadn’t ordered anything. Turns out to be a lovely surprise as Illamasqua sent me one of their new Powdered Metals (released officially on the 13th July). When I heard powdered metals […]

I just thought I’d share the product I am currently using. I test out a lot – and I mean a lot of skincare – from all kinds of companies and price ranges. At the moment this is what is working for me. My skin has been dry and sensitive, so although I love the […]
I read a piece today on that high class rag, The News of The World about Primark, you know the shop I love to hate and their staff posting abuse about their customers. Article is here. Example: Meanwhile a women’s department assistant moans at “hefty” shoppers who need to “lose some f****** weight” instead of […]
There are so many types of suncream out there, the world is your oyster. I got some Simple Sun Sensitive care products a while ago and I have to say – its an excellent range. For one thing I don’t always react well to spf – it can give me the itches. I love pina […]
** Contains graphic images of feet. If you have an aversion to feet, peeling skin or badly applied fake tan then look away** So it began on a Friday night, as all good things do, when I got peckish. I started stabbing the other half in his chops with my foot, as I always do, […]
I want to do another tutorial but what? I’m not much inspired by anything in particular. If you have any requests or ideas please let me know in the comments. (UPDATE: I decided to add a poll) Current tutorials are on here.
I made a little Helena Rubinstein haulage a while ago via eBay and fell in love. In a time when some make up brands are screaming and kicking like little kids trying to get attention, its nice to find a brand that is elegant, efficient, gorgeous… Demi Moore is the face of HR. She looks […]
Hot weather has arrived in the UK – trust me it won’t last. But even so, with just a peek of sun I dashed out to get some sunglasses, dresses and flip flops. But what about the face? I need something with SPF. Something moisturizing as my skin has been dry, but non oily. Something […]
I am always on the hunt for new, interesting things so slapped down my funds when I saw these goodies on Beauty Shop (A UK based site – all in Chinese but I always manage to muddle through and purchase). With the current exchange rate and the cost of international shipping and customs the slightly […]
Babies & Rainbows, uh-huh – well Cosmetic-Candy had its busiest month ever in June so mucho gracias for visting and supporting this blog. Yes….this was just an excuse to post pictures of Baby Gomez!
Myface cosmetics is a range exclusive to Boots – they have some nice little gems on there. The Blingtones baby! You get three shades with the centre shade a super duper glittery, high metallic colour. There are quite a few to pick from but the blue and purple are just hawt! The two complimentary colours […]
How did I, a non-fan of Fake Tans (although I am testing them because one must have an open mind as a beauty blogger, no?) end up with WAG’s favourite spray on tan from St. Tropez? Well, originally for the reason of testing, I ordered a fake bake mousse for £9 but the company contacted […]
I hate dealing with pigments on a day to day basis – they get everywhere but the best way to carry or use my many many loose powder shadows is to put them into those stackable pots. However – I was shocked when they charged me a whopping £4.60 for a 6 tier stackable – […]
I went mad a while ago and bought a ton of Skinfood make up which is hit and miss. I can’t question their sheer variety of goodies though. The Peach Sake range is one of the more talked about, coveted ranges. I can see why – it smells lovely and works quite well. The peach […]
I love creamy compact foundations, although a good one is very hard to come by. I am a fan of Shiseido’s Hydro Power foundation but the smell…urgh. Purfume + Foundation = Fail I gave Boots No. 7’s Stay Perfect Foundation a go because its reasonably priced at £13.50: They Say: No7 Stay Perfect Foundation Compact […]
