Sisley Phyto-Blanc Lightening Compact Foundation White Shell 03 Review

Sisley-Phyto-Blanc-Lightening-Compact-Foundation-White-Shell-03-Review-.jpg

I do rather have a soft spot for Sisley products, specifically their face powders.  I have a bronzer, a setting powder and blush.  All of them are very high quality and give a very natural finish that I find quite effortless – their products are not unnecessarily soft, they’re quite hard powders but because of […]

New Base Alert! Jill Stuart Moist Silk Jelly Foundation, Secret Control Concealer and Sponge Review

Jill-Stuart-Moist-Silk-Jelly-Foundation-and-Secret-Control-Concealer-Review.jpg

Jill Stuart is such an irresistible brand for me, even though I can’t say that I have brilliant experiences with their products – I barely use any of the powder foundations i have from their brand (and they ain’t cheap!).  I just love the packaging and scent of the products though and well…I guess I […]

The Face Shop – Black Label Lipsticks in Pinky Brown and Lady Wine Swatches and Review

The-Face-Shop-Black-Label-Lipsticks-in-Pinky-Brown-and-Lady-Wine-Swatches-and-Review.jpg

The Face Shop is a Korean beauty brand, perhaps less well known than her sisters, Etude House and Tony Moly, but also more understated and elegant.  Like Innisfree, The Face Shop tries to create products based around an organic ethos and with a natural vibe (i.e. Chia Seed moisturiser, Mango Seed Cream etc.).  I find […]

Baby Skincare: Apivita Eco-Bio Baby and Kids; Caring Oil and Calendula & Honey Body Wash Review

Apivita-Eco-Bio-Baby-and-Kids-Caring-Oil-with-Lavender-Calendula-and-Calendual-and-Honey-Body-Wash-Review.jpg

Baby H has such lovely soft, squishy, smooth, nice smelling skin.  He has had some moments though, like infected eczema on his scalp which required two courses of antibiotics to get rid of…it’s actually very upsetting to see your child with a skin condition of any sort, because it’s just usually very uncomfortable for them […]

NARS Duo Eyeshadow Kalhari Review and Swatches

NARS-Duo-Eyeshadow-Kalhari-.jpg

There are some palettes that you hear about over and over but you never really feel the need to buy, until one day…well who knows why? But Kalhari was one of those palettes for me.  This Nars eyeshadow duo is a very natural, easy to wear daytime eye colour, the kind of palette these women […]

Voya Get Glowing Illuminating Clay Mask Review

Voya-Get-Glowing-Illuminating-Clay-Mask-Review.jpg

My skin is currently really suffering in this cold-cold-mild-sunshine-warm-raining-cold again weather, and it shows because the zits are appearing and I am looking even more tired than ever.  So it’s my time of the year to start pulling out the facial treatments, including masks, something that I don’t usually have time to do.  I am […]

Biotherm have announced that Leighton Meester is their new global spokesperson; the 27 year old actress is best known for her role in Gossip Girl (never watched it), but also in Entourage and Law & Order.  I must admit I haven’t seen much of her work but she is very pretty and fresh faced.  This […]

Innisfree-Color-Glow-Lipstick-and-Lip-Glossy-Lacquer-Mist-Purple.jpg

Innisfree, the eco friendly Korean cosmetics and skincare brand appear to be emerging from the shadows its the brighter, bigger, bolder Korean sisters, and have been making some really interesting colour products lately.  For Autumn 2013, they launched a new selection of lipsticks and lip glosses, which look like any of their other lip products […]

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick Review and Swatches – Pic Heavy!

Giorgio-Armani-Rouge-Ecstasy-CC-Lipstick-Review-and-Swatches-.jpg

Last month, Giorgio Armani Beauty launched a range of 36 new lipsticks, called the Rouge Ecstasy CC (Colour and Care) range.  After the whole BB cream rage, followed by the CC cream ‘thing’ it was inevitable I guess, that other products would start creating multi functional products with the label.   I personally thought that […]

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Collection; A Few Picks! Berry, Baby Pink and Pink Coral

Bobbi-Brown-Rich-Chocolate-Collection-A-Few-Picks-Berry-Baby-Pink-and-Pink-Coral-.jpg

I was in a big department store the other night (yes, night) and I was observing which beauty counters were the busiest.  Whilst the big boys (Chanel, Dior, Estee Lauder) and the more obscure (Illamasqua, Shu Uemura) had a few people milling around, quite predictably, the super busy counters were MAC and……Bobbi Brown. It’s not […]

Melvita Prosun Gradual Self Tanning Moisturising Gel Cream Review

Melvita-Prosun-Gradual-Self-Tanning-Moisturising-Gel-Cream-Review.jpg

Something you don’t see reviewed very often on this blog is fake tan – I am not a big fake tan user, because I have a tan tone to my skin already plus I am always worried about looking orange or fake.  I am also not fan of the biscuit smell as it starts to […]
