Rant: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine Lipstick Design Fault!

Shu-Uemura-Supreme-Shine-Lipstick-Fault.jpg

I own three Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shines in total, in a pink, a lilac and a glossy red. Cut a long story short: Pros: Gorgeous texture, gorgeous colour, just gorgeous to wear Cons: Not longwearing, expensive and the packaging! I don’t usually have a problem with the plastic casing of Shu Uemura Lipsticks […]

Pants on Fire? Kylie uses cold cream and Kim Kardashian has never had surgery

Kim-kardashian.jpg

A while ago I asked if you felt that celebrities that endorsed beauty products should truly use the line they are promoting (rather than sneaking off for gold leaf facials or whatever it is they do). Then more celebrity revelations. Kylie states that she has given up Botox and uses Pond’s Cold Cream instead (around […]

Recently I had a seller tell me to send him $3 to cancel a listing. I know eBay almost inside out so I immediately waved a red flag in the sellers face and told him to scoot, but I thought I would just make it clear to anyone who wasn’t sure… When you buy something […]

Randomness No. 1: New Health & Beauty Goals

I’ve decided I have three health and beauty (albeit shallow) goals: 1. Lose weight (that old chestnut) properly. 2. Look after my skin properly. 3. Grow my hair properly. Fatty Can you believe I haven’t been abroad for the last 4-5 years? Life and work has got in the way but I am determined to […]

Tattoos – Tramp Stamps or Beautiful Body Art?

When Peaches Geldof was recently snapped during a drunken (and god knows what else) one night stand, she was quite clearly identified by the tattoos on her body. Peaches has quite a few tattoos and of course the rather distinctive long flower up her torso. Peaches is of course still a young girl – I […]

cat-floaters.jpg

As a beauty blogger and a general complete beauty and gadget lover I accumulate a lot of things. Whilst I personally spend spare money I have on beauty goodies (as you can see from this site), PR are also generous with samples (although the many of these never see the light of day on Cosmetic […]

Everyone has been talking about Chanel Rouge Coco but I haven’t had time to go out and look at it in person yet. But I have no doubt that its spectacular. Chanel lip products tend to be. I love Vanessa Paradis – always have. Think she is the perfect woman for Johnny Depp. So the […]

Niche make up brand…first thing that popped to mind was the number of Japanese brands I buy – Lavshuca, Canmake, KATE etc. but do these really count as a “niche” brands?
