Weekend Getaway: Elemis Festival Survival Kit in Pink Review

Elemis-Travel-Bag-Festival.jpg

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 […]

Battle of the Cream Bronzers: Chanel Bronze Universel vs MAC To the Beach Beach Bronze

Chanel-Bronze-Universel-Tan-.jpg

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 […]

Sunscreen Special Day 5: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+

Biore-Aqua-Rich-UV-50spf-sun-mousse-cream.jpg

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 […]

Chanel Tan? Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel Bronzing Make Up Base Review

Chane-Soleil-Tan-De-Chanel-Bronze-Universele-.jpg

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 […]

Cute Collection: Rouge Bunny Rouge Untamed Collection

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 […]

Daily Fail: Catherine Zeta Jones and a bad Photoshop Job

Catherine-Zeta-Jones-eyes.jpg

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 […]

RSVP, There’s a Spot Party on my FACE: Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser Review

Laura-Mercier-Tinted-Moisturizer-SPF-20-Oil-Free-.jpg

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 […]

Sunscreen Special Day 4: Skinfood Quince Whitening Sun Lotion SPF 34 Review

Skinfood-Quince-Whitening-Sun-Lotion-SPF-34ml.jpg

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 […]
