I purchased this Laneige Snow Crystal Dual Foundation a few weeks ago because I loved the idea of having a 2 in 1 product – see this has a liquid foundation and concealer in the same pot! Packaging: Another reason I bought this was because it came in a ‘darker’ shade (by Korean standards!) in a shade 33 – which is supposed to be quite a tan hue. Laneige is a pretty decent Korean brand […]
It’s the start of random nail week! Where I swatch some of the pretty polishes that have come my way! First up is the cheapest of them all, ELF nail polish. Here are two of their newer shades, Purple Dream and Teal Blue: I knew these would be cheap, I didn’t realise how cheap. I presumed they were about £3 each – they are only £1.50 each! Amazing! I’m not one for super expensive nail […]
Blusher rarely lasts more than 3 hours on me, so I’ve recently started layering (if I have time!) my blush! I use a cream or gel underneath followed by a powder on top. Origins Pinch Your Cheeks is a old school beauty product! I remember owning this many moons ago when I was at high school – perhaps I had convinced my mum to buy it for me! This now comes in 2 shades, Coralberry […]
I visited the CCO near me recently and bought a few bits and pieces – extremely random mind, but here goes! I bought Origins Gloomaway Gumballs – chewing gum but they taste of grapefruit and seriously don’t last for very long at all. When they dry up they go hard like fimo. Not sure if they are making me less grumpy but they taste good!
You don’t want to stink, no one else want’s you to stink. I don’t know about you but since I have sensitive arm pits I am careful with what deodorant I use. 99% I won’t use a spray because I find it causes all kinds of problems such as itchy skin or even lumps under the skin which aren’t at all nice to find. I thought I’d try this powder deodorant from Gatsby, a popular […]
I don’t know much about L’Occitane but I know what when I go into their lush store I want to say, ‘half a block of cheese, please’ because that’s what it reminds me of – a French deli. Since I have dry skin I am the ultimate candidate for their new Ultra Rich range, a selection of scrubs for the face, body and hands which contain Shea Butter and exfoliate whilst moisturising as well. Observe: […]
I actually hauled this about 3 months ago when I was feeling saucy (although admittedly my attempts at ‘Frugal April’ have been some what thwarted by my renewed addition to Chai Tea Lattes, my hunt for summer dresses because there were 2 WHOLE sunny days and fresh addiction to Jill Stuart make up). Side note: Speaking of Jill Stuart – any ladies ordered from Hong Kong lately? Because I have a ton of packages that […]
Because my eyes are so often tired and sore I treat them to new eye drops every now and then. My most recent purchase is this Rohto Japan eye drop which is supposed to be moisturising, cleansing, relieving etc. A bit of everything really! The thing about Japanese eye drops, you must know, is that they tend to contain some kind of menthol which means it makes your eyes go ZING! By ZING I mean […]
