MeMeMe is having a bit of a revival of late and I am really like the range ever since it’s packaging and make up restyle. Check out this super cute set called Little Angels! Don’t be deceived by the name – they may be called Little Angels but you actually get four full size products in the gift pack for £15 (works out at £3.75 each). You get the Pussy Cat cheek and lip tint, […]

I have to say, since I’ve been using Skinceuticals (more on them later) I’ve been getting less and less blackheads..but even so, they are one of my skin issues. I get a lot of blackheads on the nose especially and take time every two weeks to extract an get those nasty little things out out out. Maintenance is the key. A lot of Asian brands offer blackhead products – there’s a lot to choose from […]
Along with the Dramatic Memory Rouge colours I also purchased two lipsticks called Star Glow Rouge from Lavshuca! I love to try out their new formula lipsticks! Star Glow Rouge comes in 12 colours and is supposed to be like a gloss and a lipstick rolled into one with a nice shine and ‘brilliant’ finish. I love these kinds of lipstick swatches and lots of Japanese brands do them – how amazing?: I chose RS1 […]
Lavshuca make some really lovely lip products (they have a lip library on their site because they have so many formulas!). Their newest release is this Dramatic Memory Rouge Liquid Lip Colour! This stuff offers higher coverage than a normal gloss and is supposed to last longer too. The whole range is a rather natural, rosy collection: I picked out two shades, PK-1 and RD-3. To be clear, PK means PINK and RD means RED […]
Mr C came home yesterday ordering me to find the Cravendale advert on YouTube because I’d love it. I was pretty dubious because this is the man that told me I’d love Mythbusters and a book on The History of Railways. But a man has to be right some times, and I do, I do love it. Please watch: I’ve always said that the day my cats learn to use their thumbs is the day […]
As you may know I am a base product addict, up to my eye balls in new formulas and I’ve come to realise that anything too fancy doesn’t suit me. My foundation staples are: RMK Creamy Foundation and Dior Nude. Always ready to welcome another one to the barn. Face Stockholm’s Liquid Foundation was one of the products from my make over that I quite liked. They say: Liquid silk! The natural, dewy finish provides […]
I mentioned in my post last week that there were two products from Face Stockholm that I liked the look of so I popped in last week to buy them. They were a nail polish in no. 56 (£11.50) – a hot pink with blue micro sparkle and a pot gloss (£14.00) in Fanatic, a pink-beige with loads of green sparkle (see I like the sparkle!): I’ve been comparing what I have and the swatches […]
With so many under eye concealers and illuminating pens, it’s nice to see something a bit different. Chanel’s Lift Lumiere Eye Contour Concealer is a super posh under eye medium to high coverage product. As well as providing coverage it treats the eye area, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, circles, puffiness. A special LIFTOPTIC™ complex visibly diminishes the look of wrinkles and fine lines, while a Tetrapeptide targets the fluid that builds up under […]
I did a review of Aqmore water based polishes a few weeks ago! They’ve got in touch to offer a discount code to those who are interested! You can get 10% off with the discount code row10. To clarify, international shipping is calculated by weight, $5 for 1st 500gm and $1.50 for every subsequent 100gm. Polishes average at $10 per colour. Visit the shop here – they do have quite a nice range of colours.
I am a self confessed notebook geek and I have a serious problem – less than my make up problem, more than my bacon habit – when it comes to notebooks. I have tons of them. Most half written in, some are blank, some are collectables. Something about an empty notebook calls to me. I was extremely excited to be sent some notebooks to look at from a Hong Kong based company called Daycraft. Daycraft […]
Due to the fact that I seem to be doing relatively more dumb stuff than the next person, I have added a new category, called Oh No I Didn’t! Coming soon: Bikram Yoga, Getting a Perm and Brazillian Waxing. Oh yeah. Hardcore.
Lash growth products seem to be all the range – there are no lash enhancing mascaras too so naturally, there should be a liner that helps to promote growth! Trish McEvoy has a lash serum that you use at night, and they also have a bold black liquid liner which contains a protein complex, SymPeptide™ to improve lash fullness. Here is the liner: I’m currently trialling Mylash which totally does work but have taken a […]
I mentioned earlier today that Shiseido discontinued their highly popular and fabulous Mascara Base for a new formula, the Nourishing Lash Primer. The conclusion is that the nourishing primer does do a good job so dry your tears; we haven’t been given a dud in replacement! I’m going to do a quick comparison for other Shiseido mascara base fans. The two tubes: The older mascara base came in quite a heavy weight tube but the […]
I’m not usually one for worrying when a product is discontinued; there’s always an alternative out there but I did nearly keel over when I found out that my beloved Shiseido mascara base had been replaced by a new formula; the Nourishing Mascara Base: Shiseido Mascara Base, the original, was simple the best lash primer – ever. It held curl perfectly and you could match it with the worst mascara ever and it would still […]
