Sometimes I see a cosmetic item thats cuteeeeeeee, my fingers move faster to the checkout button than my brain can handle. Come to think of it…this happens quite a lot. Behold Skin Food’s Milk Creamy Nail Polish – so cute! The bottle is a very cute baby bottle shape…why? Its ‘milky’! Remember! The polish itself is quite creamy and it takes 2-3 coats to get an even coat. However it lasts pretty good! I got […]

Are you having a good week? I do hope so. Have another product review for you today which has taken me far too long to get round to doing… I first heard of Ellis Faas from Grace (London Make Up Girl), who is rather good at finding unusual make up brands long before anyone else jumps on the bandwagon. Immediately I thought the website looked amazing, love love love the way they present swatches and […]
There are more and more Asian based beauty stores appearing, and the majority of them are reliable and have good prices. My favourite though is still Adambeauty.com. The site can be hard to navigate but I adoreeeee it. It takes him longer to get make up in sometimes, but his prices are very reasonable and the shipping is cheap ($2) and fast. I have only ever had a problem in 100 transactions with him ONCE, […]
Halp! Its not very often my investigative skills fail me but I can’t seem to find these two products anyway. I want to know what brand they are from, and if they have a website? I neeedddd this in my life! 1. Lasting Gel Liner. I can’t figure out where that lid is from – I guessed Palty but the lid is slightly different: 2. Diet Pill. I think it says Rock Lean on it […]
So I bought this in a bargain store for £3. I bought one but I could really do with two. What I will say is that thank god it has grip. Can you guess what this is? Answer after the jump!
Flaky, dry lips are the bane of my life, and although I have lots and lots of glorious lip balms I’m really not one for reapplying make up during the day unless I have a giant day glo spot which needs more concealer. I think Sarah Happ’s lip scrub is ok. I have a few other lip scrubs are ok, I haven’t found one what I totally love yet. Enter Lush’s new Sweet Lips Lip […]
It wasn’t until I had a horrendously mad mullet cut last year that I started looking up ways to get my hair to grow faster, quicker. All kind of things came up – special shampoos, special tables, horse tablets and what not. Not really willing to stretch to taking bizarre tablets for the sake of making my hair grow faster, so I have just been letting it slowly become humanish again. Then this Lee Stafford […]
Here we go again! Every now and then I come up with a list of product that I just must buy and I get an itch. I buy it, it get used twice then discarded and forgotten. The other day I was at the shops and visited my favourite beauty floor in Selfridges. I ended up spending nearly two hours there because three girls from my favourite counters stopped me for chats (they’re like chums) […]
Wishing you lots of love and cuddles on Valentines Day. Remember guys, Valentines day is not all about boyfriends and girlfriends, roses and diamonds, massage oil and Ann Summers knickers. Its about the Marks and Spencer Dine in for £20! Yeah!
Wishing my readers a Happy Chinese New Year of the Tiger, may you be as fierce as our stripy feline friends in the upcoming year. ????!
I can’t hear the word Shills without thinking: I got Shillssssssssssssssss They’re multiplyin’ So I made my first venture into Shills (A Taiwanese brand – thanks to Alison for letting me know!). The brand seems to be a bit of a mish-mash of things, a bit like Benefit bit with more variation. I had to buy the Vanilla Milk Lip Balm because how cute is the packaging? Cuuuuuttteeeeeeee! I love that moo moo cow. I […]
Well ok, I lied. I have no idea what she is wearing. But when I saw this picture of little Sci, the first thing I thought was: BEAUTE MASOCHIST LIP CREME! You know, that gloriously beautiful, vampy glossy red that is drop dead to look at but can look hoochie if you ain’t careful? My second thought is how much she looks like Tom Cruise (to me anyway). Anyway….if I were there I’d get a […]
You know I am a nail dunce, right? I am a perfectionist and if my poslish isn’t perfect it comes right off again. So, I was pleased to receive these three polishes from the ‘Opal’ range of Nail Polishes from Stargazer: Considering the fact that this is a bargain brand it doesn’t feel cheap. It applies easily too, but then again its also quite sheer to there’s few make up d’oh’s for me. The polishes […]
Sleek really is one of my favoured high street make up brands – when its good, its very good and well worth the price. I also like the simple black packaging that always feels heavy rather than light and cheap. This Contour Kit hit my doormat a few weeks ago – I love contour products although I tend to like doing it (if I bother) with my Nars Multiple Sticks (Malaysia and Copacabana). The Sleek […]
Couldn’t possible go through the week without mentioning VALENTINES! I promise you girls, the older you get and the longer you have been in a relationship, the more you realise its just a pointless exercise in forcing people to spend huge amounts of money on mediocre flowers, bad food and cheesy greeting cards for one night…but there’s presents! Screw the pasta! Pass me the presents! £100+ 1.Diva Rebel Purple Python Straightener Limited Edition Gift Set! […]
Got some bits and pieces from Boots No. 7 to review shortly, but this was too pretty not to share with you sooner! There are only 2 shades in this lipstick, this rosy sheer red and a more neutral brown-rose. The texture is excellent – pigmented yet sheer, it has that ‘water’ feeling Japanese lipsticks do. The colour is of course, an acquired taste. I like it, I think this would look pretty hot on […]
Little Noah Cyrus, Miley’s 10 year old little sister not only wears what seems to be a full face of make up, but also dresses like a older lady: I think Noah is too young to be wearing clothes like that with matching fishnet tights (fancy dress, you cry? Well what is she going dressed as, an exotic dancer?) and to be wearing a full face of make up – a glitter gel (applied badly) […]
Low maintenance nail girl coming through, beep beep! Still – theres always room for a dark, rich chocolate brown: From Nubar. Can’t complain about the quality of this stuff. Non drying too. Get Swiss Chocolate here for £8!
I bought this YSL quad cos it was in the sale for £15! Bargain! The retail price I think is more like £25-£30. I got no. 4 it Tawny: This YSL OMBRES QUADRILUMIÈRES is called the 4 Colour Harmony for Eyes range with a square of four shades the highlight being the biggest area and the liner being the smallest. I love the tawny combo – its that stunning blue: Swatch:
