I am always super super grateful to anyone who includes me on their Blogroll (I am updating mine at the moment! Please do bear with me as I have lots of great blogs to add and I am currently spending the next week or so fixing bugs and pages on the site!). I’ve noticed that sometimes, (I think it might be a blogspot problem as it seems to affect blogrools that include an image of […]

Y’all know (I’ve always wanted to say y’all) I love dual use products, and I have a thing of soft pencils. I am in fact, really in love with the Top Shop Sun Shower Crayon – so beautiful – but creases horribly. So I was giddy when I received these Trish McEvoy 24 Hour Eye Shadow and Liner pencils. Giddy but tentative…like going to a job interview. In my experience, super soft eye crayons, because […]
I love having curly hair, but, I do find it tricky with my extremely (not from choice!) layered hair. At the moment I have a few conical wands – yes they are great, but they are also tricky when you have short and long hair and if you don’t pay attention, like me, you are easily burned. Ouch. I LOVE my rollers but they take quite a lot of time to put in. I like […]
I recently got a card sampler of some Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks – here are the swatches: Grenade Gina Galia (my favourite) and Ginger. I had to go and buy a full sized one to try out after this success! The lipstick is expensive (I can’t remember how much, I think it was £25). It comes in heavy duty, luxurious packaging which has sexy curves, and pops open to reveal a mirror inside. I chose […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. No. 10 is a sheer mermaid blue with chunky blue and silver sparkles. What do you think?
People buy discontinued and out of season make up for all kinds of reasons. It could be that you: a. Want a specific product that has been discontinued by a manufacturer/brand. b. Want a specific shade that has been discontinued by a manufacturer/brand. c. Want to try a range that has been completely discontinued …and so on… Being a bona fide bargain hunter (no matter what it is I’m buying!) I find myself buying a […]
I have never tried a macaroon until recently, when I went to a Bodyshop Bloggers event – there were tons of them on the table! Almondy…crunchy….creamy….nom! Naturally I just had to buy the Skinfood Macaroon Mini Pact – even though I don’t quite know what a Mini Pact is – just incase it smelt like a macaroon. Ok here’s what they say it does. The mini pact is a concealer which covers imperfections and flaws. […]
Lunasol is a high end Japanese brand that rarely gets it wrong – quality and innovation they have in equal mix. I was sent a Lunasol blusher of my choice to try – my usual choice errs toward the side of beige/gold/peach so I went for something with an intriguing name instead – Reddish Beige. Reddish beige?! Lunasol Coloring Cheeks comes in two parts (a lot of Japanese brands do this) – one side is […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. A bright apple green with fine silver sparkle. What do you think?
I am obsessed with lashes although I definitely make plenty of lash/mascara mistakes…all the time! But I’m learning! I am generally too lazy to give my lashes a comb through (even though I should) but I just don’t have time in the morning when I do my make up to go to work. I was interested in trying the Savvylash tool because it’s a quicker way of getting rid of clumps! Ok so the Savvylash […]
Love Skinfood so much at the moment, they have so many ranges of cosmetics and skincare too choose from it’s hard to resist. Can you imagine the scene if I got to visit Korea and was let loose in one of the stores?! *drools* Alas, I am not in Korea so I have to make do with eBay. My latest purchases are these Fresh Juice Lip Glosses, in Peach Juice (No. 6) and Coffee Bean […]
Unfortunately, applying lashes is something I need to master (when I have time, I do get a sneaky practise in!). My favourite lash applicator tool (I’ve tried so many) is one by Shu Uemura. It’s really excellent for fixing down the corners of a fake lash without poking yourself in the eye. However I keep losing it. At the time of writing, my Shu Uemura Lash Applicator is indeed, lost. So I picked up this […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. A tangy sheer orange with sparkle. What do you think?
Whoops! Very hectic and the moment, so totally forgot to mention that I am guest posting over at Zuneta, reviewing Hourglass Lip Gloss. It’s rather nice so please check out out here.
Do you like a bit of lip plumping? Ever since Duwop’s Lip Venom, every other lip gloss I buy has menthol-tingly ingredients in it, devised to make my lips look fuller. *newsflash* I don’t need thicker lips! Seriously, I have used some lip glosses that have burned my lips so badly, and when I go outside and the cold air hits it – OUCH! Although, I guess I am partial to a little tingling. Plump […]
The lip balm fiend that I am, I can’t help but purchase more even when I have one balm in every nook and cranny of my house. Carmex, first introduced in 1937 is the classic tingly lip balm is one of my favourites, and I favour the classic one in the tub the most – I like the tingle and medicinal smell. These days there’s so many variations on the theme; Original, Cherry, Moisture Plus […]
Me and Mr Candy recently got some goody bags which included a fabulous notebook inside and these two candles from Apothia Los Angeles. I love candles although I burn them with caution (what with fur babies around!) and I am also quite snobby about my candles. I love scents that are either fresh or sensual, but they really can’t smell cheap. We got Wave and Casa. Wave Notes: Fresh white grapefruit, mandarin, yuzu with hints […]
This nail polish is from my Ettusais Vacance Nail Colour Set! All swatches are of 2 coats. A snow white base with silver sparkle. What do you think?
I didn’t mean it Hello Kitty! I still love you! But check out Angel Cat Sugar, a new kitty from Yuko Shimizu, the original creator of Hello Kitty! The Angel Cat Sugar range consists of bags, toys, accessories, games, collectables, gifts, stationary, homewares and so on. Here is the rather nifty make up bag: I’ve seen one of the shopper bags in person, love it because it’s more structured than your average shopper totes (the […]
Whenever I get another mascara to review, I am half expecting to be disappointed. See, I have these troubles, straight lashes that rarely behave; most mascara’s don’t work for me. Boots No. 17 new mascara, Wild Curls says it will hold curl for up to 10 hours. They say: The innovative shocking pink brush coats and coaxes for clump-free, ravishing lashes. The wild brush has soft, uneven bristles that allow you to get right to […]
