Skincare: Jill Stuart Cleansing Oil and Fruity Cream Wash


Look what I picked up! Only the prettiest skincare ever! These two are (generous) sample sizes: The packaging from this Jill Stuart Skincare had me from hello. The Cleansing Oil is a smaller version of the full sized one – it has the princessy lid (reminds me of the Crystals from The Crystal Maze?) First impression – the cleansing oil is very nice, a little on the thin side and it smells fab and fruity […]

Shiseido Perfect Smoothing Compact Foundation SPF 15 REVIEW!


There is one powder foundation that I love – its by Albion, but aside from that, they all crust up on me. Nice start to the review, eh? But if anyone can make a nice base, Shiseido can! This Smoothing Compact Foundation is powder based and can ONLY be used Dry. No spritzing your sponge with Evian! Now, this powder foundation is supposed to work even on dry and rough skin (like mine is at […]

Benefit Cream Eyeshadow Swatch – My Dates My Brother


I largely ignore Benefit cream eyeshadows although looking back at my old review, I was once madly in love with them. I picked this one up cos I fancied a sparkly peach: This is more of a warm sheer peach. The texture is medium not too soft, not too hard – reminds me of MAC cream shadows in the pot (don’t know my MAC very well, can you tell?) Swatch: On the eyes….looks a bit […]

Review: Lancome Ombre Perfecteur Eyeshadow Primer Base


Eyeshadow Primers. Love them. Can’t live without them. UDPP is still the one people love, but I find it a tad dry and it makes shadows a little hard to blend (I do like Too Faced Shadow Insurance the most and Lunasol’s Eye base). This Lancome Ombre Perfecteur Eyeshadow Base caught my eye because its in a handy click pen. Click! They say: Waterproof and long-wearing, this matte finish formula holds eyeshadow perfectly in place […]

Review: Japanese Bestselling Lip Balm: Be Zen Glossy Lip Treatment


I wonder if I will ever wake up and go, I am sick of Lip Balm? Well at the moment my passion for lip balm is still huge! Up for testing on my chapped lips (all that lipbalm and still they flake) is the Be Zen Treatment Lip Gloss – its a bestseller in Japan and is supposed to be both a (clear) gloss and a lip balm. Errr…..a bit like most glossy lip balms. […]

Nice Highlighter: Stila Kajal Pencil in Topaz


Stilaaaaaa! Stilaaaaa! Where for art thou? Well infact, Stila is everywhere in the UK, constantly on sale, on eBay, Brand Alley etc. etc. I like Stila but I don’t have a knockout product from the company. I picked up this Kajal Eyeliner in Topaz after people told me it was the perfect inner eye highlighter. “Geez, haven’t you heard of it?” they said in the comments. Yah I have heard of it, but I couldn’t […]

How heavy is your Handbag?


Just seen a report on the news (must be a quiet day) about how women are ‘downsizing’ their handbags. Downsizing….hand…..bag…..DO. NOT. COMPUTE. I have a bad back and shoulders as it is with my enormous Chi-Chis so I have been trying to downsize. I bought the Alexander Wang Coco Duffel Bag which is much smaller than my normal bag thinking it would force me to downsize. Mistake. The Wang has metal studs on the bottom […]
