Pointless Dual Use Lipstick Alert: Hard Candy Megawatt Smile Lipstick in Picture PerfectReview

Hard-Candy-Megawatt-Smile-Lipstick-in-Picture-Perfect-Review-.jpg

My memory of the Hard Candy brand is the multitude of nail polish colours they stocked a Boots which came with a free plastic ring. Even back then they cost nearly £10 each, and I remember talking to school friends and confirming who had a rich dad..’But she’s got 4 of those Hard Candy rings!’. Hard Candy is no more in the UK but it lives on in the US! When I saw this Megawatt […]

EX1 Cosmetics is a range of make up created by Farah Naz, who is British Asian, and wanted to create a range of products suitable for ‘exotic’ skintones after being frustrated at what the high street had to offer. The brand uses the term ‘exotic’, and by that, they are meaning Asian (which in the UK tends to refer to Indian and Pakistani races), Middle/Far-Eastern or Mediterranean complexions. We are talking about quite a specific […]

I purchased one for Mr C once, and he still uses it all the time now for various tasks…you never know when you’ll need something sharp! I was surprised to find out that the brand also has a range of fragrances.  Victoria Eau Du Toilette is; Swiss Army Victoria expresses the personality of a modern woman, endowed with an innate sense […]

My final instalment of the Aveda Art of Nature collection is all about the lips lips lips!  Once again I’ve never really used Aveda lip colour products before.  I have the Nourish Mint in Melochia Bloom Lipstick (914-Sheer), Nourish-Mint Lip Liner in Barberry Bloom Lip Pencil, Nourishing Mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze in Kukui – all of these formulas are Limited Edition. What I found interesting about these products is that they’re not necessarily complimentary, although […]

I usually try and maintain some kind of system when it comes to reviews, almost a one in one out thing so that I can work through the piles of products in a democratic order.  However, sometimes I get something that I like so much I have to push it to the front of the queue…no…this review simply cannot wait.   Aveda’s Art of Nature collection for Spring 2013 is a mixture of pastels and […]

Edward Bess is a brand I have heard lots of positive things about but had not yet got round to testing (I bought some lipsticks in their old packaging to try but surprise surprise, I’ve not had a chance to use them yet!) so it was a nice treat to get one of their Deep Shine Lip Glosses in a little goody box I was given.  They say; This light capturing lip gloss has a […]
