It was the lovely Louise at my Nars counter who alerted me to this product – Jemma Kidd Pro’s Prep & Brighten Dual Ended Primer, which I responded, “A primer? Where? Where? Where?” Space NK, came the reply. Although in true Space NK style, I went to the store closest to me to be told it isn’t sold in that branch, I had to go to another branch and when I went there, they didn’t […]
First Crush My first ever true make up brand love belongs to Shu Uemura. As soon as I knew that I could collect the eyeshadows and depot them into custom made palettes, I knew it was over for me and the bank balance. Sienna Miller of Make Up These days, the truth is that I have a lot of make up and am a little bit of a hussy – I kind of grab what […]

One excellent thing MAC does is the Back to MAC program, which I am sure most of you know is when you can take 6 empty products back to MAC and you get to choose a free lippie or eyeshadow. Now I plead with Shu Uemura to do the same! I for one always take my Shu Shadows out of their plastic cases and put them into their palettes. I have kept all my empties […]
Starting today, I’m going to start doing FOTD’s that are inspired by…stuff. Stuff, since this is me we’re talking about could be anything. A chocolate hob-nob, a sprig of coriander, an extractor fan…..maybe not an extractor fan. Someone asked me once if my middle name was extractor….but I digress.
