Battle of the Super Hot Pinks; MAC Candy Yum Yum Matte Lipstick & Milani Lip Colour in 07 Rose Hip

MAC-Candy-Yum-Yum-Matte-Lipstick-Milani-Lip-Colour-in-07-Rose-Hip.jpg

My fellow hot pink lip stick lovers; you must’ve heard of MAC’s gorgeous matte pink lipstick, Candy Yum Yum. The shade was once a Limited Edition colour, then brought back by MAC due to demand and is now permanent. It is a matte finish lipstick.  Before it was widely available though, (or should I say Permanently available) people were looking for dupes everywhere. EVERYWHERE! During this time I located a Milani Lipstick in Rose Hip […]

Crabtree & Evelyn English Honey & Peach Blossom Hand Cream Review

Crabtree-and-Evelyn-English-Honey-Peach-Blossom-Ultra-Moisturising-Hand-Therapy.jpg

Every tube of hand cream I receive is stolen, just as all the Jaffa Cakes I buy are, by Mr C.  The poor thing has sort, chapped hands because of eczema, psoriasis (arrghhh spelling confusion) and dermatitis.  According to the Drs he’s had all three. Though his hands are on the mend he still needs to regularly moisturise to prevent cracking.   He uses a selection of creams, and knows instantly if something isn’t right […]

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Amnesty!

To celebrate the launch of Shu Uemura’s new cleansing oil (POREfinist – which I am currently trialling!), they will be hosting a Cleanser amnesty! For one day only – the 1st of May 2014 at the Shu Boutique on Monmouth Street, London – they will exchange any cleanser – ANY CLEANSER – whether it is full, half full or empty for a 50ml travel size bottle of one of their cleansing oils (you will be […]

Japanese Earbuds: It’s an Earbud Heaven

Japanese-Earbuds_-It_s-an-Earbud-Heaven.jpg

Yeah it’s time for a novelty post.  My lovely friend Clare picked up some Japanese cosmetics (my bi-annual haul!) which I review eventually. She also went to the Daiso store for me and picked up a LARGE selection of…Earbuds.  I bloody love earbuds. It’s a sick obsession. My favourite are the skinny Muji ones, which are lint free so you don’t end up with hair everywhere. I do everything with earbuds. I clean me ears, […]

Darphin Paris Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood Review

Darphin-Paris-Aromatic-Cleansing-Balm-with-Rosewood.jpg

Ah! I’ve had this Darphin cleanser FOR-EVER and since it is on it’s last legs, it must mean it’s time to give it a review before it goes to empty skincare heaven.  Darphin is a French Skincare brand, one of those high end, luxurious spa feel brands, not unlike Decleor, Elemis et al.  The other brands stand out more to me, but Darphin should not be ignored! They have some really lovely products. Like this […]

Urban Decay Black Eyeliners; 24/7, Ink For Eyes, All Nighter Eyeliner

Urban-Decay-Black-Eyeliners-24_7-Ink-For-Eyes-All-Nighter-Eyeliner.jpg

Kate Middleton loves black eyeliner and so do I.  You can’t beat a good black eyeliner, it can be used as dramatically or naturally (i.e. just between the lashes) as you like! I have always been a big fan of the 24/7 Urban Decay pencil range (I am sure I nearly have all the colours) – what I did not know was that there are a lot of varieties of black eyeliner if various consistencies […]

Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush and Bronzer Brush Review

Real-Techniques-Retractable-Kabuki-Brush-and-Bronzer-Brush-Review.jpg

Pixiwoo’s Real Techniques make up brushes are a really rather impressive range of brushes, considering the price point they are at. You may take it for granted now, but I remember being a teenager and not being able to find any decently priced good make up brushes (I ended up with The Body Shop ones that shed everywhere).  Anyway the Real Techniques range is expanding all the time and now there are some retractable brushes! […]

KIEHL’S Midnight Recovery Concentrate & Alicia Keys Helping Keep A Child Alive

ALICIA-KEYS-MRC.jpg

Midnight Recovery Concentrate (MRC!) is one of my favourite – if not my favourite – skincare products from Kiehls (I will review soon).   It is a very light weight facial oil which is used a night (obviously) to give radiance to the skin the following day.   Kiehls has now teamed up with Alicia Keys (New Yorrrrrkkkk) to release a limited edition bottle of MRC to support the Charity, Keep A Child Alive.  The […]
