Purple Perfume: Elemis Eau De Parfum Exotic Speed Review

Elemis-Eay-de-Parfum-Exotic.jpg

I don’t review perfumes that often review because I am no expert, and also I only have about 8 on my dressing table and they are all quite well known branded ones (Chloe, Marc Jacobs Lola, Chanel No. 5 (light version), YSL Parisienne, Stella, Viktor and Rolf etc.). I’m not madly creative when it comes to scent. So I was interested to try Elemis’s Eau de Parfum Exotic; Warm Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Clove Bud […]

Crushed stuff cleanser: Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser Review

Lush-Angels-on-Bare-SKin-Cleanser.jpg

A few weeks ago I bought some new skincare from Lush and it’s all been pretty well used so here are some speed reviews of the products! My first purchase was Angels on Bare skin. I tried this stuff years ago when it was sold in a roll and when Lush stores were hard to come by and I hated it. It was difficult to use, stung a bit and was just generally a pain […]

5 Green Nail Polishes: Etude House Petit Darling in Luminous Green GR02

Etude-House-Petit-Darling-Green-Polis.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! This Etude House Petit Darling nail polish is a bright, bright green – yet it hurts my eyes a little and no I wouldn’t wear it if I had anything serious going on… I guess it’s a bit of fun. It reminds me of glow in the dark paint, whilst it’s glowing. I like the creaminess of […]

There are 6 colours in the range, each lipstick containing mango butter, vitamin e and acai oil to provide hydration and a highly pigment finish. So let’s take a look… Vesuvio (sounds like a car): A full bodied red Every lipstick collection needs a decent red and Vesuvio is it. Neither too pink or […]

Cringing at the Counter: When The Boss Goes Bad

Scolding.jpg

So I was shopping at Muji yesterday, one of my favourite places to buy things and was really peeved when I realised all the staff had changed over and the new guys were the archetypal nightmare shop assistants; ignorant, unhelpful, disinterested. That got my thinking all about my experiences in retail as a customer and when I was younger, as a shop assistant. God knows some nightmare customers exist but one thing I found from […]

5 Green Nail Polishes: Etude House Petit Darling Green Nail Varnish GR605

Etude-House-GR605-Nail-Polish.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! Will green ever be readily accepted as a every day polish? I get weird looks at work when I wear it unless its a pale mint. Anyway this one is a mossy kind of green, quite thick and creamy, it reminds me dark chinese cabbage. Mmm with a bit of Oyster sauce…. This is fairly wearable I […]

I’ve got a crush on you: Who is your current Brand Crush?

Crush-Six-pack.jpg

It’s a good job I don’t treat my make up like I treat my men, otherwise the current Mr Candy would’ve been replaced 10 times over by now. Go and grab some Pj’s and ice cream, cos I want to talk brand crushes with you (again)… As long as I’ve liked make up I’ve had brand crushes. On one hand I probably have something from most brands you can name, but I also go through […]

Oskia-Skincare.jpg

Some products are just packaged so beautifully that they have instant appeal. The first time I laid eyes on Oskia I just thought it was a stunning, beautiful skincare range. Simple and elegant.

Oskia products also include their MSM-Regen Complex™, a naturally collagen boosting, repairing and regenerating ingredient. It’s also paraben free and uses 98% natural or nature-identical ingredients. Got it?! Now….I […]
