New Releases: Benefit Bella Bamba Review & Swatches


Launching in January 2011 (Happy New Year!) is Benefit’s Bella Bamba Boxed Powder, a warm medium pink blusher with a shimmer gold touch to it. It comes in this funky looking box and it is reallyyyy pretty. They say: Amplify cheekbones and create the illusion of sculpted features with this 3D watermelon blush. Laced with shimmering gold undertones, bella bamba is taking eye popping pretty to the third dimension…you’ll never use traditional blush again! Bella […]

Sleek Limited Edition i-Divine Sparkle Palette Review & Swatches


Sleek have been naughty on the customer service side. Sympathies for people who still haven’t got their products or are trying to get a refund. If it wasn’t for the fact that I always buy one of the LE palettes in order to swatch I wouldn’t have bothered. But here it is, bound in three layers of sellotape because the clientele in my local Superdrug like to open up and play with these palettes. Destructive […]

Bargain Blush Beauties: La Femme Liquid Blusher Review & Swatches


This is my first foray into La Femme products! I’ve heard other bloggers talk about the brand but I associated it with Constance Carroll….urgh, don’t ask. I was browsing eBay and spotted these La Femme Liquid Blushers…looked inoffensive enough so I purchased two colours to try. There are 6 shades* and for some reason they chose to make it all very pink based, which basically eliminates my need to buy more than 2 of these […]

Sexy Pot, Sexy Product: Jill Stuart Fruit Lip Balm Review


As a lip balm addict, I reserve the right to buy any new lip balm that, erm, takes my fancy. When I saw this Jill Stuart Fruit Lip balm in all its glorious packaging, I had to buy it! I actually have the previous Limited Edition release of lip balms from Jill Stuart but they were lovely – this new version is even better. I love the look of this jar! The lip balm comes […]

Kill Germs, Make Friends: Melvita Purifying Hand Gel Review


I am utterly obsessed with anti bacterial hand gel – I am always applying it, because as well as killing germs, it also (I think) gets rid of the greasy feeling from your hands, such as after eating and after applying make up. I will use all kinds of anti-bacterial hand gel, cheap and pricey although I noticed that some really do dry your hands out quite badly. This Melvita Gel Purifiant Mains is my […]

Kanebo Coffret D’or Silk Cream Foundation Review

Silk-Cream-Foundation FACE  LINEUP  COFFRET-D_OR  Kanebo-COSMETICS.jpg

Whenever I’ve tried Japanese or Korean foundation products, I’ve been fairly happy with the results but not with the colouring (I am NC35 and I find most foundation products too light for me). I took a risk when I ordered Coffret D’or’s newest foundation, Silk Cream (SPF21) because it looks just like ‘my’ kind of base – creamy and hydrating with medium coverage. They say: Rich, smooth cream that creates exceptionally silky skin with smoothness […]

Got Dry Patches? Kanebo Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base Primer Review


A few months ago I bought the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base primer and Silk Cream Foundation (review later today!). I thought the idea behind the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat was very clever and appropriate for the winter season – it’s a pearly pink type cream in a small pot which is used as a primer, but for dry spots. On top of that, this product can be used as other things – […]

No! No! Noooo! Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir Review


Every time I spend a fair amount of money on a mascara (and I would say anything over £15 is steep since the majority of mascara’s try are crap) a part of me dies. Remember that. Now, I was a bit spendy-happy when Boots had their amazing shopping evenings (£12 points for ever £50 spend) so as well as buying gifts I got a few make up bits for myself. I haven’t used Chanel mascara […]
