Haul: MAC DSquared and Style Black Collections

I did a haul at MAC about 3 weeks ago but have only just got round to editing the photographs. There was so much kerfuffle over the Style Black collection I had to buy a few bits to try it out. Overall? I don’t find MAC particularly inspiring most of the time, but they definitely have some great basics and the is a generally consistent quality there: Want see more? Jump!

Review: NYX Doll Eye Mascara Waterproof Extreme Black

Someone recommended the NYX Doll Eye Mascara to me, so I decided to pick it up for £5 from eBay (seller Mssskel). I generally like NYX a lot – the shadows, liners, jumbo pencils, lipsticks are all excellent. I got the Doll Eye mascara in the waterproof version as these tend to be better for holding curl, in extreme black: The case is pretty standard stuff – a black long tube: Want to see the […]

Review: Etude House Model Face Colour Powders

I bought three face powders from eBay a while ago from the Korean brand Etude House: There are 6 powders in the range each with a different function. 1 – Highlighter (for use on the outer V around the eyes, t-zone etc. with a pearl finish) 2 – Model Shade (a matte bronze for contouring but also as a bronzer) 3. Walking Pink (pale pink blush or brightener) 4 – Style Pink (deeper pink blush) […]

Your Hair & Nail Questions!

Hey up! I need to know if you have any questions concerning hair colouring (can be anything at all) and if you have any questions about Nails. For example – my questions for hair colouring are: 1. What is the correct way to get rid of black hair dye? 2. Are Semi-Pemanents truly semi? If not how can we gauge what damage we will do to out hair? (because my semi is 100% not budging) […]

Review: SANA Make Essence Eye and Lip Concealer

If you want the cutest make up around then you need, you absolutely need the range of concealers from SANA Make Essence. I am a big fan of SANA (a Japanese brand) because they release so many interesting little bits and pieces. SANA Make Essence has three products in its range now – the Eye Concealer (the bear) Pore Concealer (the seal) and now, an Eye and Lip concealer (Mr Croc): I have all three. […]

Random Find of the Day: Soak Washing Powder!

In a new series of random finds (I do, occasionally buy things other than make up, honestly, like bacon and books), I present to you today, SOAK – a clothing detergent (is that the right word?) that is very eco-friendly and great for delicate items. I got some sachets to try (£1.65 from here) – apparently you can just put your item in a bucket or sink or whatever, and put this stuff with it […]

Review & Swatch: Etude House Top Ten Tan Lip Glosses

Regular readers will know that I am obsessed at the moment with Korean cosmetics and skincare – this will be stalling for a while because of the postal strikes in the UK. I have noticed that post from Asia is taking twice as long and I get really agitated when my post doesn’t arrive. Sad, I know. Anyway I picked up these glosses from Etude House from eBay for £12 for the set (search for […]
