Tarte Cosmetics will arrive in the UK via QVC


One of my favourite US brands, Tarte, will be coming to the UK via QVC next March 2014!  (Exact date tbc!).   I have tried a selection of their products, and liked them – in particular their maracuja oil creaseless concealer (it’s really thick and opaque!). However it’s not a cheap brand in import, SO, I was pleased to see that QVC will have a decent selection at decent prices (there are more products than […]

Book Review; Perfume The Art and Craft of Fragrance by Karen Gilbert


One of my beauty ‘things’ I always mean to do is to learn more about fragrances.  There are some writers who are so skilled at talking about scents, it’s so very impressive, maybe because they know their stuff – the notes, the similarities, the subtleties that make each perfume unique.   I have tried reading a few books about perfume before but it never really sunk in.  A thick book about the history of perfume […]

Boots Offer Star Gift of the Week is Sensationail Gel Deluxe Starter Kit – £105 down to £45 (possibly £36.60)!


As already mentioned on the Money Saving Expert website dayssss ago, Boots’ star offer of the week is the Nailene Sensational, which is a home gel polish kit (review here).  I have warmed to this device as I do not have the time to wait for polish to dry and I’ve got better at removing it too (I buy the foils in a box of 100 from eBay – cost a few pounds at most!). […]

Make Up For Ever (MUFA) Sepia Blue Palette Review and Swatches


My favourite eye looks to do is a mix of neutral and brights; you see, in my heart of hearts, I just can’t resist a green or turquoise eye, but it’s not always suitable for every day wear so…I love to mix it with neutral colours such as brown tones.   So…I wasn’t on the market for another eyeshadow palette at all and then I spotted this beauty from Make Up Forever called Blue Sepia. […]

Embryolisse Secret De Maquilleurs Radiant Eye Stick Review


Embryolisse is one of those French Skincare brands – if you’ve heard of it, then you’ll know they have a cult moisturiser everyone seems to love.  The Embryolisse skincare range is actually quite big aside from “that” moisturiser and includes other creams, cleansers, BB creams and so on.   Today I have this rather clever invention; the Radiant Eye Stick which is a brightening and refreshing eye stick – truth be told, I have seen […]

Hair Cut Time! Am I brave enough to Bob?


So on Wednesday I am having a hair cut – nothing exciting about that right? And most of the time, many hair cuts are pretty regular predictable things…trim…a few layers…shall I get a fringe…nahh…. I am in talented hands this Wednesday, so this has to be the perfect time for something quite different right? I am thinking of having a bob…a proper bob though.  My hair pretty much always errs on the long side, I […]

Aerin Midnight Colour 2013 Winter Collection Review and Swatches


Have you heard of Aerin cosmetics yet? Aerin Lauder, granddaughter of Estee Lauder launched a fragrance and beauty collection a while ago now, although she is well known for her interiors in the USA.  Speaking to some ladies, not everyone has heard of the brand although to be fair Aerin hasn’t been widely available (there are now counters in selected John Lewis’ in case my ladies in outside of London want to take a look […]
