Review: Barry M Blusher in Apricot

The nice people at Barry M sent me one of their new blushers to try – there are 6 in the range and I chose Apricot since I love my peaches. The other shades are quite self explanatory colours – Pink Orchid (lightest pink), Rose, Strawberry, Terracotta and Raspberry. Barry M make great loose eyeshadows […]

Review: Elf Studio Range; Brow Gel, Complexion Perfection & Eyeshadow Stick

Imitation…is the sincerest form of flattery, they say. I say poppycock. But since there are no laws against imitation, I guess we have no choice but to be flattered by those who copy…let’s say they were ‘inspired by’, instead. So I bought a few things from the Elf Studio range. ELF STUDIO was INSPIRED BY […]

Beauty Bag Steal from Primark


My make up collection is still in a state of disaray, so at the moment, I have my day to day products in a plastic bag next to my bed. Oh yes. The glamour. So I decided I needed a fairly big train case type vanity bag. I found some on eBay for around £15 […]

Because I’m on a budget: L’oreal Drugstore Haul


Something happened to me this morning. I woke up and I didn’t want anything. No lemmings. No cosmetic must haves. Nada. I am bored of the winter collections already and the pound is at an huge low next to the dollar so I can’t even buy anything from overseas. Another thing I noticed this morning […]

Shopping99 & Mu Gu

Remember when I said something made me really excited a few weeks ago? Well it was a brand, a shop! Yup somewhere new to buy stuff. (well it made me giddy anyway…) It began with this video: Nice, cute palette. Mu Gu? Never heard of it. Did some investigations and it turns out that its […]

Front Cover Eye Kit half price at Boots

There’s a new brand called Front Cover at boots – their £30 eye palette is half price this week at £15: It looks pretty dapper but I despise cardboard cases, especially bulky boxy ones *shudders*. It gets chewed by the kitties, it isn’t resistant to water, it’s bulky, it’s ugly – NO. For that reason […]

10p Face Masks & 88 Colour Palettes & FOTD


So I am bitter and resentful that you girls Stateside get all the coolest bargains, where as in the UK we are always paying top buck for everything and not even getting decent customer service either. Anyway there’s a bargain store we have here called – er, Home Bargains. Oh the shame, the shame. I […]

Sleek Eyeliner & Shadow Palettes

The original palette: Swatch: Matte Chaos Palette: Swatch: Storm Palette: Swatch: All of these palettes are absolutely gorgeous. The colours, especially in STORM and in the Original are wearable and very pigmented and soft. They are far superior to MAC, I tell you. The chaos palette is drier than the other two because it is […]

L’oreal Chrome Shine Lame Eyeshadow

I don’t think I have ever, in my life bought a Loreal eyeshadow – the packaging is crappy beyond belief, but I did absolutely love the look of this shade: Metal Lame reminded me of a gorgeous discontined shade of eyeshadow by Lancome called Erika F – deep smouldering gunmetal shade, with hints of green, […]

Excel Eyeshadow @ Adam Beauty

Bargain Alert! Excel are a Japanese brand that do cheap looking but very nice products, this eyeshadow duo included. I have only own one previously, but I found the two shades to be pigmented and soft, especially the darker complimentary shade in the set. It is now $40 HK dollars at Adambeauty, worked out about […]

Quick Sale Haul – Rimmel, Soap & Glory, Bourjois

I popped into Boots today and got some half price goodies! Although I am not a big user of Rimmel – some of the products aren’t great, and the packaging breaks on me in a matter of days, I like the look of this palette: It comes in two tiers, featuring 15 eyeshadows, four lip […]
