Solone is a Taiwanese make up brand from…Taiwan, silly, and they make a rather popular eyeliner pencil which they call the “Solone Gel Line Smoody Pencil”.  This pencil is waterproof, it can be blended and used as an eyeshadow or liner. They also happen to be quite inexpensive so I picked up three from eBay […]

‘And God Created Woman’ is a classing French film directed by Roger Vadim and stars Brigette Bardot, back when she was young, so stunning and less…controversial.  You know Nars really does seem to love his beautiful film legends… Anyhoo..I spotted this little beauty a few months ago on the official Nars website (I collect their […]

Surprisingly wearable palette of the day: Estée Lauder Pretty Naughty Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette Review

Estee-Lauder-Pretty-Naughty-Five-Colour-Eyeshadow-Palette-Review.jpg

Spring make up collections tend to be somewhat pastel based and shimmery; this is fine if you like pastel based and shimmer but sometimes these colours can feel quite – to quite my 12 year old cousin – blah.  My first thoughts when seeing the Estée Lauder Pretty Naughty Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette was not ‘blah’, […]

Urban Decay’s Naked ‘franchise’ (ok, range), is getting bigger and bigger, and it’s not hard to see why it’s so successful; a collection of very wearable colours together in one place – what’s not to love? Here is my first Naked purchase and the second palette. Obviously good things come in threes, so I purchased […]

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Stay On Eye Shadow Paints in Halo, Extreme Emerald & Cosmic Review and Swatches!

Estee-Lauder-Stay-On-Eyehsadow-Halo-Extreme-Emerald-Cosmic-.jpg

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved cream eyeshadows.  Whilst other protested, ‘But they crease!’, I would say, ‘It’s totally worthhh itttt!”. Japanese cream or jelly eyeshadows, in my experience are the best at being none crease, but, as pretty and sparkly as they are, they lack pigment.  Shiseido’s Hydro Power […]

Palgantong-3x3-Cube-Colours-Eye-Shadow-.jpg

  I’ll keep this review short and quite sweet, okay?  Palgantong (sounds elegant eh) is a brand from Korea (I think?!) and is one of the very first brands I noticed before there was an explosion in the popularity of Korean make up brands generally.  Their best selling classic product is the Theatrical Loose Powder which […]

KATE Spring Collection Haul & Review: Cream Cheek, Real Create Eyes and Dual Eyeliner

KATE-Real-Cerate-Eyes-Cream-Cheek-Blusher.jpg

KATE (a Kanebo brand) is one of the old schooler’s of Japanese drugstore cosmetics.  I used to place the brand head to head with Lavshuca and there was a phase when both of the brands would release killer ranges every season but Lavshuca has been majorly disappointing of late, as has KATE. Nevertheless I picked […]

Esprique-Blend-Dimensional-Eyes-B-3-and-Mellow-Forming-Rouge-PK-811-Review.jpg

A little while ago I did a haul on Adambeauty.com for some Esprique make up! Esprique is a Japanese brand, and used to be Esprique Precious before it was upgraded to a sleeker, black look. The range is in the mid-high price range and is aimed at older women (as in not teenagers) but they’re […]

Visee Meets Blondy Glam Nude Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Haul in Classical Bitter Chocolate!

Visee-Meets-Blondy-Glam-Nude-Eyes-Eyeshadow-Palette-Haul-in-Classical-Bitter-Chocolate.jpg

I’ve recently really got into neutral eye looks; maybe because it’s just easier to apply and is great for work. Thus I have acquired (as you will see) a number of neutral eyeshadow palettes! The thing about Japanese palettes is that they are always shimmery and slightly sheer.  It’s nice to have some mattes and […]
