Love Topshop Nail Polishes….a lot. I just find them really easy to apply, they dry fairly quickly, they last well on me and they’re not too dear. They also happen to have some really nice shades too, from neutrals to brights to classics – and these super cute foiled effect metallics too! These shades are made for Christmas! They are called Eyes of Steel (silver) and Glimmer (gold): They have a really lovely foiled look […]
There are some products you wait and lust over for quite a while before they end up in your possession. This is exactly what happened with the Kose Addiction Cheek Sticks. I have wanted them for a long time and finally they are mine! I chose 2 shades, Amazing a hot pink and Nocturne, a nude beige. What is a cheek stick?! What? Eh?! Why? Why do you like it so much? Huh? It’s actually […]
It’s the yearly Boots Soap & Glory offer this week, and it’s a stonker! This year’s giant bag is the Big Spendour and for one week will be reduced from £60 to £25 which is a huge discount. It is NOT eligible for the Boot 3 for 2 during this time. Here it is: I missed out last year because I couldn’t find the damn thing anywhere – there’s no guarantee that if you aren’t […]
I have a sickness – and it’s a lipgloss sickness and I can’t stop buying pretty ones! Having said that…a lot of the ones I buy are just meh. So it’s really nice to find something a bit special, that really looks pretty on… Esprique Aqua Drape Rouge lipglosses were released a few months back. I purchased two colours, RD471 a sheer brown red and PK972, a light pink: In my experience Japanese lip glosses […]
When I saw the Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes, there was definitely one in the world for me. Do you ever sense that about a product? That there is one that is just made for you? Palettes with bright green or black; they are usually indicators that I will love them!
In case you haven’t noticed yet, Cosmetic Candy Shop became Kawaii Gifts recently! It’s take a lot of work and it isn’t finished yet, but we are getting there! You can take a look over here. The stationery section is now bigger! My favourite picks are these waterproof stickers and deco tape (which is nice for gift wrapping or making cards). Also for 2011 check out our diaries and thinner, compact schedule books. Stocking fillers […]

I am a huge fan of hair oils with my hair being as dry and over processed as it is! Truthfully olive oil and coconut oil works really well but it’s also messy and somewhat inconvenient.
