I am definitely a cream/liquid blush kinda gal, more so than a powder one because my skin is a little dry, I love the dewy glow they give. Tints are lovely too – they tend to be more sheer than cream blushers, but they do set and last for a long time, even though they are sheerer. Another advantage of tints is that they can be used on the lips without looking dry and chalky. […]
Hello Anna Sui! I remember when Anna Sui was sold in Boots the chemist. Unfortunately it was ignored, and as a result it was banished from British shores. The range can now be purchased online and the newest Anna Sui releases are delicious – gorgeously packaged, sweet smelling, pretty. I purchased two Face Accent Colors a while ago. They aren’t called ‘blushers’ you philistine – they’re ‘face colours’ presumably because they do more then make […]

I present to you three perfect, peachy golden blushers for the dying summer that suit a large range of skin tones. Dare I say it – they are all similar to the mighty Nars Orgasm with their own little spin. Pure blusher in Peach (£7.83), The Balm Blush (also for eyes) (£15) Hot Mama! and Daniel Sandler Mineral Blusher (£10.50) in Coral Sun. Click see more to see the swatches –
On June the 4th, RMK will launch their new range of eyeshadows (35 shades) divided up into 5 categories, Shiny (shimmery), Metallic (highly shimmery with glitter particles), Pearl (Iridescent texture) Brown and Dark (two I didn’t get a chance to try). There will also be 8 new cream (or jelly eyes) eyeshadows, 6 Jelly cheek blushers and 23 pearl and matte blushers. The blushers are no longer in square pans, but in rectangular ones with […]
Oooh my exciting parcel arrived! Three Cle De Peau Extra Silky Lipstick and blush: The blush didn’t swatch very well but it is lush on – blends dreamily, looks like a bronzer but also works as a blush as the colour is dewy, soft. This is 120, 121 and 122: The nicest lipstick in the WORLD, with a price tag to match. Will do proper swatches later but these seem pretty sheer to me. My […]
UPDATE: You can buy TheBalm in the UK from Zuneta. I am new to TheBalm – a cute retroey San Francisco brand which is new to the UK. You know what it reminds me of – Benefit! I don’t mind Benefit but I can’t say anything they have released lately has won me over either. When I saw TheBalm I was concerned it would be all style, no substance. I got three products, Hot Mama […]
No, I don’t work for Illamasqua. Nevertheless, incase you haven’t noticed, I’ve become very enamoured with the brand. I have three powder blushes so far and they are GORGEOUS, and practical if I don’t say so myself. What do we have here? The perfect pink, the perfect peach and the perfect brown. Woah, chipolata, that’s bright. Reminds you of Nars Taj Mahal? Or MAC Manish Devil? Me too. Excite is completely matte though and can […]
