Hauling again: Bésame Enchanting Lipsticks in Red Hot Red, Carmine & Exotic Pink

I didn’t have the best experience with Bésame last week – the lipstick I bought was too frosty and the lip gloss made my lips burn. Nevertheless, it was pay day so along came three more lipsticks (ok I admit it. I ordered them and it was too late to cancel….d’oh!). This time I picked […]

Peri Plastic Tweezers – as useful as a plastic fork?

Last week, my work colleague taught me the phrase “Brain Fart”. According to Urban Dictionary this is: A spontaneous stupid (Stupid the noun, not stupid the adjective) usually accompanied by loss of train of thought and saying something fantastically stupid without realising it. I have brain farts constantly, and I was having one when I […]

Review: Barry M Blusher in Apricot

The nice people at Barry M sent me one of their new blushers to try – there are 6 in the range and I chose Apricot since I love my peaches. The other shades are quite self explanatory colours – Pink Orchid (lightest pink), Rose, Strawberry, Terracotta and Raspberry. Barry M make great loose eyeshadows […]

Blog Sale – Yay or Nay?

There comes a time, when you cannot move for the make up in your path, that one considers doing a clear out. Hence, I am considering a: All together – a Blog Sale! I have a silly silly amount of make up and skincare that I do not use as it doesn’t suit me/wrong hue/won’t […]

Review: Aesop Rosehip Seed Lip Cream

When I was a kid I collected four different things (and I am still a rather sad hoarder these days): 1. Stamps 2. Keyrings 3. Badges and 4. Lipbalms. See how original I was? Anyway I am still a sucker for a new lip balm although with my extremely dry, flaky lips (particularly on my […]

Review: Shiseido Majolica Majorca Fairy Sadistic Perfect Automatic Eyeliners

Majolica Majorca’s Autumn 2009 collection, Fairy Sadistic *giggles* also has a set of new liquid eyeliners to match. Good. Previous Majolica Majorca liquid eyeliners have not been my cup of tea – too unpigmented, too watery. This new release consists of 7 shades of blackened eyeliners: I bought two, the GR604 Green and GD802 Gold. […]
