Grind with me! Review: Clinique Superbalanced Mineral Powder Makeup SPF 15

Just when you thought that the only things you could grind were: a. Pepper b. Salt c. Coffee d. An Axe The cosmetic companies prove me wrong. I present Cliniques Superbalanced Mineral Powder Make Up with SPF 15: The grinding thing isn’t original – I had my beady eye on Smashbox’s Halo Hydrating Powder for a long time but at £41.50 (including a brush) it was too pricey for my liking PLUS there was only […]

Winner Announcement & Catch Up!

Yes, yes its time for me to grovel once again at my lack of productivity – you know I am usually good for 3 posts a day but recently work has been exhausting, so I have been falling asleep, dribbling on my MAC in the process. With a bit more rest in me I have lots of cool posts coming up, a homemade tutorial, some bargain make up finds, inspired FOTD and *fingers crossed* a […]

Maybelline Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara Review

Vibrating things have been big, like, forever, in the sex industry, but in cosmetics? This is sort of new.

The US is fantastic for returns even for make up items (and US ladies, please do comment and tell me if this is not as great as I think it is…). In the UK returns […]

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 up 3 shades – Red Hot Red, Exotic Pink and Carmine. I tried to pick out colours I thought were […]
