Dose of pretty: Jill Stuart Nail Polish 104 Shine Beige and 105 Violet Red Swatches

Jill-Stuart-Nail-Polish-104-105.jpg

Jill Stuart is probably one of the prettiest, if not the prettiest make up brand out there! On the downside…gah it’s so expensive and hard to get hold of. Oh and the results are…so-so! Here I am with two limited edition polishes, 104 Shine Beige and 105 Violet Red from the 2009 collection. I saw these on eBay for a bargain price (£17 for both) and thought I’d give them a try! First things first, […]

Frugal Friday: What make up is worth what to you?

cat-in-bag.jpg

What make up is worth what is a bit of a tongue twister – but what I mean is – do you feel that you will pay more for one kind of make up over another (regardless of brand). For example I have a big crush on Esprique make up at the moment and I knew for sure I wanted another eyeshadow palette at around £25. I wanted another item (I can’t buy things in […]

Etude House LUCIDarling Lipgloss and Rouge Pick and Mix! Swatches! Review!

Lucidarling-Fantastic-Rouge-Gloss-Lipstick-Rouge.jpg

Etude House LUCIDarling lip glosses and lipsticks are rather lovely – I’ve tried a few shades before, and they’re pretty pigmented and hydrating. I bought 2 lipsticks and 2 lip glosses, I wanted a cool toned mauve and a reds. I’ve come to realise I buy more lipsticks than lip glosses – I guess it’s because it needs topping up so often! These two LUCIDarling lip glosses are very pigmented and glossy…

Caring and Customisable! Teosyal Covering Repair Concealer Kit Review

Teosyal-Covering-Repair-Concealer-1.jpg

Teosyal is a Cosmeceutical range made in Switzerland – the range is great for sensitive skin and skin that’s recently undergone surgery and can’t use regular make up. I am a sucker for concealer, so I have their 4 shade covering repair which is a tinted covering treatment with hyaluronic acid. It’s recommended for redness, dark spots, under eye circles and also for post wrinkle injection treatment. The 4 shades reminds me of the Lise […]

Mascara that holds curl! Sony CP B&C Volume Up Fiber Mascara Review

BC-Sony-CP-Volume-Lash-Fiber-Mascara-Fiberwig-1.jpg

Despite my disappointment at B&C’s Lash Sculpture mascara I decided to purchase their newest one, which is Volume Up Fiber. And it’s pink! How lovely! I like the Sony CP cosmetic range and to be honest, I like BCL products in general just because they’re a bit different. Here s the mascara: Japanese mascara’s are pretty different to standard Western counterparts. They are always waterproof or water resistant – they’re drier, generally, never as wet […]

The Lovely Cheeks: The Face Shop Lovely Me:EX Blusher Review

The-Face-Shop-Lovely-ME-EX-Blusher-.jpg

The Face Shop is a Korean make up and skincare brand who makes quite a variety of products! Their products place the emphasis the ‘eco beauty’. I bought three of their blushers from the Lovely Me range to try: I was suckered in by the packaging – so cute! This shape blusher always reminds me of Shu Uemura! The strange thing is I always forget to apply blusher – I always do my base and […]

Is brown eyeliner better than black? Testing Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil Liner

Majolica-Majorca-Cream-Brown-Pencil-.jpg

I love my black eyeliner and black mascara – I really, really do, but there comes a day when you look in the mirror and: Yeah – you’ve morphed into a panda and you don’t know how or why. Sigh. I’ve been using brown eyeliner more for day time and it’s so pretty! Far more wearable, especially for the office. Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil is one of my favourite pencils at the moment – it’s […]
