Welcome to Cosmetic-Candy!


The Blog: Beauty, hair, make up, skincare, kittens and more.

Me: I am a writer, photographer, and an excellent writer of complaint letters.

Cosmetic Candy isn’t quite like other beauty blogs.

Cosmetic Candy doesn’t take life too seriously, because there’s no point. If you don’t like something I wrote, it may make you feel better to know I was probably on a mixture of valium and piriton (it makes me drowsy) at the time. I do not expect you to agree with everything I say – that what makes the internet interesting – freedom of speech.

I do also solemnly swear to tell the truth about what I think about beauty goods regardless of whether my pennies paid for it or if some kind soul sent it to me.

If you want to use any pics/texts, please give me a credit.  I will nag at you for taking my low resolution, over exposed photographs.

Take a look around, it’s always nice to have readers,


Cosmetic Candy 2009.

    Hi there,
    Stumbled across your website – I like it, honest and interesting.

    Perhaps you could help – I like to wear waterproof mascara (essential living in Scotland) and I’ve been looking for one in a charcoal colour? Any ideas?
    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Hi Rowena, I found you googling for Sleek. 😀
    I’m kinda jealous! Most of interesting cosmetics you talk about are unavailable here in Italy. xD
    Anyway, thank you for sharing.

    I am currently working on an international research project focused on eyelash visibility where we try to identify innovative users like yourself.

    It would be great to get in contact with you for an interview. New ideas and solutions will be presented to a global acting company and most interesting users might be selected for an innovation event.

    Please let me know when you are available for a talk. You can reach me via e-mail, skype or phone. I leave my e-mail and website in the details below.

    Thank you.
    Best regards,
