A YouTuber made me do it! Except I can’t remember which one. One with pretty lips. A month or two ago a YouTuber mentioned one of her favourite lip glosses ever is Chanel’s Brilliant Extreme in Giggle. With a name like Giggle, I had to order one (I think Debenhams had 10% off), and I generally have faith that even though I was buying blind, Chanel comes up with the goods. So it arrives and […]
I thought that this Illamasqua Naked Stranger’s release was very lovely looking so thought I’d share these images with you! Naked Strangers to me implies nude colours – which this kind of is but it’s been styled in quite a dramatic way. They say: A place where alter egos are laid bare and naked flesh is a source of unashamed inspiration. In this delicate tipping point between intimacy and pleasurable detachment, we revel in the […]
I popped down to the Illamasqua counter near me a few weeks ago for reasons I will explain next week for a make over with one of my favourite make up artists – Leena who is a Key Artist for the brand. One of the items I purchased and can’t wait to review because I have so many mixed thoughts about it, is Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation (£25): They say: Inspired by the cult Asian […]
I have a NOTD for you from eye CANDY London – a Colour Flip Nail Polish (£8) which supposedly has a ‘metallic colour flip particle technology’. In different light and at different angles, this polish should give you different effects! There are 4 shades in this range, Green with Envy, Regally Yours (the one I have here, a royal blue) Liquid Gold and As You Know It.
I have had my fair share of hair dye disasters and have often reached for the RUSK Eliminate hair dye remover which is a. expensive and b. hard to find as there aren’t many Sally’s stores near me (well the last time I went to one they wouldn’t let me buy anything!). They do a hair dye remover in Boots called Colour B4 by Scott Cornwall which works well, is cheaper than RUSK and is designed for […]
Inika Cosmetics has an interesting back story; the founder Miranda Bond struggled with endometriosis and thought shouldn’t wouldn’t be able to conceive naturally. She decided to change things in her lifestyle, like her diet (very important of course) and eliminating products that contain potentially harmful chemicals that can be found in cosmetics. Once she began to detox her life she fell pregnant naturally and eventually Inika was born, a 100% natural beauty brand that is […]
If you’re looking for a cheap thrill, walk up to that Sisley make up counter then turn back round again cos Sisley is an expensive, luxurious, high end beauty thrill. It’s one of those ooh and ahh brands up there with SKII et al. If you can get over this then let me show you my lips of the day, Sisley Phyto Lip Shine in Sheer Peach! They say: This glossy, ultra-luminous lipshine is creamy, […]

I love liquid eyeliner! I still have to […]
