Whilst people have been talking about the Tom Ford Lipstick, the Serge Lutens, the Cle De Peau, I have been drooling over this lipstick for months and months and months. From Elegance Paris (an extremely expensive high end Japanese brand), their line of lipsticks is called Spice Shot Rouge and stand out feature is a striking streak of colour running right through the body. Here are the shades: At around £35, I wanted to pick […]

Happy Bank Holiday! Today is the start of 5 giveaways, Monday to Friday, so enjoy! Today have I have Three Avon Speed Dry Nail Polishes for you in Red Hot, Twilight Blue and Sunshine (a gorgeous yellow). Want to win it? Answer This: If you were a Cartoon Character, who would you be?
Green polish – is it every a good idea? I certainly think its a cute shade to wear and green is my favourite colour! It does depend on the shade though…. Orly’s polish in Green Apple is a clean, fresh juicy green. I think its cute enough to wear for the summer – what do you think?
You Tube is such a wonderful place – well, it has its downside – but overall its a fantastic place to watch what I want, when I want. It got me thinking – what do most people prefer – blog posts or videos? Blog Posts require a bit more effort – you have to read through it, but it can be more informative than a video (ie. when listing ingredients). Videos are quite a tricky […]
Do you wear SPF on your lips? I’ve noticed that my lips dry out even quicker than normal in this kind of weather but I prefer some colour over just plain lip balm so I am on the look out for lipsticks and glosses that have SPF. This new Liplicious Moisturizing Balm from Boots No. 7 scared me when it landed on my doormat! Purple Liquorice is a deep purple infused with glitter. Its actually […]
Please excuse my poor dry cuticles! Here is a beautiful sunny yellow for summer: Orly’s nail polish in Hook Up is a summery yellow and my current favourite for summer. It looks odd for some reason when my nails are really long but on short neat nails, it looks great! What do you think of yellow polish?
Hallo gorgeous ladies, How are you all? Everything I planning went a bit to pot this week due to unforseen circumstances (I love that term) but everything is good to go for next week! From Monday 31st to Friday 4th there will be one giveaway per day! Just comment or tweet to win! Blog Sale on Saturday 5th at 7pm! Hope you can make it! Sorry for presenting you with another blog sale! I am […]
If you ever need to sell a gimmick, sell it to me because I. will. buy. it. Reebok Easytone Trainers “curve” entered my radar, and sure enough, I found this pair for £79.99 including postage via Amazon (Mr Candy kindly donated his gift vouchers so I could get these trainers!). What do you think of them? I seriously bought these just to see how they feel on, then it occured to me that £80 smackers […]
I’m going away for the Bank Holiday Weekend, and whilst I am a light packer (I hate carrying too much stuff) I do normally take lots of beauty treats with me. I am also rubbish at depotting skincare things into smaller containers because I hate washing them out when I get home so I tend to take random sachets of sample skincare (then pay for it later!). So I was happy to receive this Festival […]
I purchased MAC’s To The Beach Beach Bronze Cream Bronzer (Geez – try saying that after a few drinks) first, then I purchased the Chanel Bronze Universel in a moment of weakness. I was kicking myself, thinking that I had basically bought the same thing twice. Not so, my darlings. Overall, I’ve found the To The Beach collection a disappointment, so much so that I can’t even be bothered going through my purchases. Anyway, so […]
The last sunscreen I have purchased recently is Biore’s UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse in SPF 50. Biore products (from Asia and especially Japan) and fabulous and quite frankly better than the ranges they have over in the UK. For example, the nose strips are stronger and more effective (Asia release) than the UK versions. No idea why… I got this because I wanted a SPF for the face with SPF 50 that had a […]
I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick up this Cream Bronzer from Chanel – the Bronze Universel is one of those things I said I’d buy one day, but finally got round to it when Debenhams had 10% off recently. This has lots of positive reviews, and I wasn’t sure if I’d like it – I pretty much dislike any bronzer too orange or too shimmery. They say: The velvety finish […]
Gorgeous brand Rouge Bunny Rouge have bought us a new collection, called Untamed for the Spring/Summer. They say of the collection: We were inspired by the late twenties and their sultry atmosphere, which we captured in her mysterious eyes and lusciously plump lips. They form the centre of the look, and are paired with a natural, flawless complexion to effortlessly evoke sophistication. I love the model’s full lips, although she looks a little startled! Used […]
The Daily Mail generally speaking, doesn’t like women very much and they love to pick on certain celebrities. They are forever bitching about (and giving backhanded comments to) Victoria Beckham, Christine Bleakley, Cheryl Cole (Tweedy?) and Catherine Zeta Jones et al. Today’s Daily Mail bitchy reporting says that something is “up” with Catherine’s face: Oh Catherine, whatever is going on with your face? That photograph taken on Monday as you arrived at the Film Society’s […]
I freaking love Laura Mercier primer and loose powder, hence I broke my no buy rule felt that the Tinted Moisturiser was necessary, since it would: 1. Complete my Laura Mercier Base collection (primer, powder) 2. Be great for this hot weather which will last about, oooh a week 3. Its a moisturiser so I count it as skincare so THERE So I plonked down £32 (sob) for the oil free version of the Tinted […]
How is it possible for me to not buy a skincare item that has Quince in it! This is Quince: Korres, of course did a Quince Lip Balm although it just smelt sort of apple-y and pear-y to me. Anyway, the purchase was this – Skinfood’s Quince Whitening Sun Lotion. Not only will it protect, it will whiten too and brighten too. Honest. With a generous SPF 34 and 70ml of product, I treated this […]
I was tidying up my make up and found this Lip Sync duo from Senna Cosmetics at the bottom of a drawer! Lip Sync is a duo ended product, with a lipstick on one end and a lip gloss on the other. You can get 3 looks out of it! They say: Long-lasting, delicious biscotti flavored and moisturizing lipstick and a complementary lipgloss in one elegant package. You’ll be plumping your pout too with collagen […]
Ok, how slow am I? This offer has been on for a while but luckily THERE IS STILL TIME! Time for what you ask? You have til the 5th of June to pick up these Nail Inc Nail Polishes, free with every 2 bottles of 500ml Coca Cola you buy. Nails Inc Polishes are usuall £10.50p each. Here is the set I was sent: If I wasn’t sent this I would be marching my way […]
When I first got this Sunscreen in the post, I didn’t rush to open it – didn’t look very exciting, I sort of forgot about it for a while. Skinmedica’s Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 is apparently excellent for mature skins and especially good if you need a SPF post surgical procedure. This doesn’t apply to me *touch wood* at the moment, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a test run. Even though […]
First Nicole Kidman with her weird powder incident, then Eva Longoria… I know we want to create light around the eye area but COME ON! Concealer too light, powder too light. The centre of her face is bout 5 shades lighter than her neck. Make up artist to blame? Or do you think it looks good?
