I was sent a selection of products from a French brand, terre d’Oc which is certified organic, non-comogenic and is formulated with a number of oils and butters. The idea is that the products nourish as well as looking pretty! I have 3 products here, Eye Shadow Duo which has a cream texture in Rose and Prune Takaro, Eye Kohl in 701 Prune Kerala and Gloss Sublime Lip Gloss in Peach. Want a closer look?
One beauty skill I wish I have is the ability to apply fake lashes well. Some girls just seem to know where to ‘pop’ it on and it looks fantastic! I tend to stick it…then wiggle…then I look in a different mirror and it just looks odd or is totally a mile away from my lash line. Why won’t it just look straight!! I was sent a pack of Lashaholic Addictive Glamour lashes to try. […]
In my day job I deal with a lot of unusual, long (18 characters plus) names and let me tell you, sometimes there are letters that just shouldn’t go together. Like, Z and Q. Or X and K. When I saw these super cute Gwdihw balms I did sit there fore a second and try to pronounce it phonetically. They say: Gwdih? pronounced “Goody Hoo” is the Welsh word for “owl” and also the brand […]
When I was on holiday in Budapest, I picked up tons of cheap make up from the pharmacies over there. One of the brands I saw was called Essence – I don’t think I’ve seen this brand in the UK before but I think it’s sold in Ireland and across Europe. It’s an English language brand and quite a funky young one (reminds me of Miss Sporty) and there’s a big variety of items, especially […]
Whenever I see Mylenne Klass it brings back a terrifying memory of leaving my student flats many moons ago and being heckled by a group of lads who started singing “Pure & Simple” at me….Shudder. Borderline abuse that was. Being heckled aside, Myleene who does all sorts of things (presenter, recording artist) now has a range of nail wraps. Each set includes enough for the fingers and toes, as well as a nail file. There […]
Recently, I was sorting out my pigments for the blog sale (this Saturday people!) and ended up with about 6 empty containers. So I went to MAC to claim my free lipstick! Rather than going for something wacky,which is what I always do I decided to pick something I knew I would wear. I am madly in love with Angel from MAC – it’s one of the few MAC lipsticks I adore but it was […]
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, as far as lip balms go anyway, someone presents you with a new lip balm concept. Shell Lip Balm is made from a number of natural ingredients (Coconut oil, Mango Seed Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and more) – it also comes in a completely real shell, which is recycled and cleaned accordingly. Each Shell Lip Balm comes in a pouch: There are some very […]
Rimmel’s newest foundation offering is called Wake Me Up and let’s face it – who doesn’t need some waking up in the mornings! For a long time I’ve heard great reviews about the Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation but have never had the chance to try it out – I imagine Rimmel’s Wake Me Up is in the similar vein, illuminating and waking up the skin. I like the packaging – the bright orange […]
