My lips are pretty pigmented as it is so sometimes, I just use clear lip gloss – although this does remind me of being 14 again. One of my recent cheap purchases is this B&C Makemania lip gloss in Clear Sparkle: It comes in three shades, Clear Sparkle, Clear Red and Clear Red Beige. I really like the squeezy bottle as you can get all the product out. Clear sparkle isn’t 100% bland. Within the […]

There are a few things that I love to buy, things that that I will plonk down cash for and you certainly don’t need to ask me twice which include: 1. Make Up 2. Handbags 3. Books 4. Smoked Bacon Needless to say combine No. 1 Make Up with No. 3 Books = ImusthaveitandImusthaveitNOW! Scott! I have about 35 make up books from all around the world. It doesn’t matter if I don’t understand it, […]
Bloom is currently on sale in larger Superdrug stores in the UK, and very lovely it is too. Its a bit expensive (or perhaps it just feels too expensive to be on a poxy stand) but it seems to be generally quite a pleasant and inoffensive brand. I got these two Bloom Cheek tints in Bronze and Rosie (Tan and Rose) a while back: They Say: Bloom’s lightweight, quick-drying Cheek Tint gives cheeks a healthy […]
UPDATE: Ladies, this shade is called PK 052! I reviewed the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine Lipstick before – love the texture, love the result but hate that it fades without a trace within a few hours. But I did say – I LOVE the result. Instant kitten with one coat. So I went back and bought this unusual shade: Sorry can’t remember the name of it – its Lilac and is one of […]
I am of course, forever searching for new interesting things in the beauty world, so when I found a brow product for paling out the eyebrows I had to buy it. Most people spend their time darkening their brows and adding colour. I naturally have enough hair in the brow area and they’re dark so I don’t really need to use anything on them, if I don’t want to. They also have quite an obvious […]
Considering the fact that I get 4 hours sleep a night, I don’t have awfully dark circles but they are definitely there. Yet I always forget to use concealer – but the difference when I pop a bit of brightener under my eyes is immense. Enter Bobbi Brown’s (fairly) new Tinted Eye Brightener: Yah, we’ve seen it all before. Touche Eclat, Skin Flash – nearly every single brand has its own brightening lightweight concealer type […]
Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! Illamasqua lipstick in Over looks like a pinkish orange in my pan – but it applies quite sheer and is very wearable. Yay or Nay?
Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection has two very snazzy lip glosses which I highly recommend – I am a lip gloss addict – can you tell? The Bronze Goddess Lipglosses combine shine with pigment. I’m glad there’s a nice amount of shimmer and colour to these glosses rather than some wishy-washy rubbish: Wild Coral is a hot orange with lots of gold particles. LOVE IT. Orange is just one of my shades and the gold […]
Estee Lauder have launched two Limited Edition Bronzing Products as part of the Bronze Goddess 2010 Summer collection. There’s a Summer Bronzing Gel (a light tinted gel) and a Exotic Bronze Blush which is somewhere between the two! The bronzing gel is a lighweight, sheer formula that gives a warm, non streaky finish. I can second this – I fear tanning products very much, but this was easy peasy to use and gives a natural […]
As part of the Bronze Goddess Collection 2010, Estee Lauder has launched 2 new nail polishes: In the cute cube shaped bottles there are two shades – one is a wearable slightly sheer pink-purple, one is a dark glitter purple: This is my first time using Estee Lauder Nail Polishes, and I’m impressed – for one thing they apply evenly and smoothly. There are two looks in the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection – a […]
Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Collection for 2010 is full of vivid colour for Eyes, Lips and Nails! There are LE Bronze Goddess Liquid Eyeshadows in 4 shades – have a look at some swatches on the gorgeous Beaut.ie site (£15 each) A new Sumptous Waterproof Bold Volume Lifting Mascara (£19) Two Pure Color Nail Laquers in Ultra Violet and Wild Orchid (£12 each) A LE Bronze Goddess Exotic Bronzing Blush (£26) A LE Bronze Goddess […]
Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! Illamasqua Lipstick in Perilous – a hot orange. I like this one a lot, its good fun and not too garish! Yay or Nay?
This weeks wishlist is: 1. Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer 2. Trish McEvoy Palette & Eye Base I am really into Trish McEvoy at the moment – I really want the Little Black Card Champagne Truffles kit, the Demure Sparke Eye Base and the Luminizer Pen. The Luminizer is quite pricey at around £26 (its a white sheer cream – which I know a lot of other brands do) but the last time I had a […]

Ok so I bought some cool little funky inventions and things (you know I love those) – so you have to guess….what is this kit for? No its not for cupcakes. Guess in the comments!!
I purchased this Lip Vinyl a good few weeks ago – its a natural beige type shade in the Lip Vinyl texture which is quite a wet looking gloss. I previously bought this in the hot pink which is just gorgeous! There aren’t many shades to choose from in the Lip Vinyl texture so I don’t know how long this formula will be around for. At £18 I think its quite expensive but its super […]
Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! Illamasqua Lipstick in Faust – Illamasqua Red Lipsticks are very similar – see my comparison here – Faust is prettier than I thought, a sort of blue based red. Yay or Nay?
Time to kill a lemming for me? Saw this eyeshadow in You Magazine, and what a beauty it is – an eyeshadow stick from By Terry called Ombre Blackstar. It comes in 5 shades – 01 Black Pearl, 02 Silver Granit, 03 Blond Opal, 04 Misty Rock and 05 Frozen Quartz. I have my eye on Blond Opal and Black Pearl but at £26 for 1.2 grams surely this is just a tad too much […]
I popped on the counter to buy the Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick the other day, and whilst I was there, the Riveting Collection caught my eye. The very clued up SA told me it was an exclusive to Selfridges only, no online or in any other stores so naturally this made me 19281248192% more interested. There were 4 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, two blushers and some matte nail polishes in the range (its only […]
Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! Illamasqua lipstick in Strip – a pure white – thick and opaque. You don’t need me to tell you that this lipstick is not to be worn alone unless you are a clown or “going through a phase”. Its a bit cakey too. Best […]
