I have seen these around for ages but I finally bought one from a discount store for £1.99! The Orgasmatron is a head massager, like a clam type contraption that looks like an instrument of torture: I tried this out – what a weird sensation! I felt my entire head tingle – urgh – like getting chills down my spine but I sort of liked it! I used it on Mr C and he collapsed […]
Oriflame is a new brand to me – they are similar to Avon in that you order from a local representative using their catalogue or online! You know I love my lipsticks so I was excited as I tried out their new Triple Core Lipsticks – apparently the first of it’s kind in the world! Gosh I remember when the first ‘moisturising core’ lipsticks came out. My mum would put it on, then I would […]
Do you ever get slimy, melting lipsticks? I do. In fact, in this kind of weather my make up starts to melt…I feel bad for it! For some products, a bit of heat doesn’t hurt. But generally speaking, you don’t want your make up to be toasted under the sun. Enter the Refresh Make Up Bag, a snazzy invention that keeps your make up cool. They say: The Refresh Make-up Chiller is an ingenious way […]
You know I love my beauty inventions right? Well here is my latest find – Collagen Marshmallows. An invention from Japan, these mashmallows come in 50g snack packs and each packet apparently contains 3000mg of collagen peptides. Yes I can see your eyes rolling from here… Here’s the Mashmallows – quite tasty I think they are grapefruit flavoured: They say: Collagen is the most abundant natural protein found in the body, making up 30% of […]
Today you have to guess what my purchase is and what I would use it for beauty wise: I’ll say that I picked this up from the Japan Centre in London whilst I was down there. But what is it for?! Want another pic?…
So I bought this in a bargain store for £3. I bought one but I could really do with two. What I will say is that thank god it has grip. Can you guess what this is? Answer after the jump!
Here’s a tip. If you’re going to research ‘Breast Enhancements’ or anything with the word ‘Boob’, ‘Baps’ or ‘Babylons’ then make sure your Google Safe Search is ON. My eyes. So were talking boobies today – I was doing my usual look for unusual beauty gadgets trawl when I noticed some bust enhancing gum. I generally ignore things like that but then I noticed there were tons and tons of products made just for breast […]
I thought this was a rather bonny invention from Kate Cosmetics. What is it? I don’t know! This pen is like a firm felt tip liner. At first I thought it was a mascara. I did actually use it as a mascara to fill in the end lashes and it was ok. But my conclusion is that its a liner that you can wiggle into the base of your lashes to add some colour. How […]
What do I do when I see something that I think is a positively silly invention? I buy it! Ta-Da! When this foundation first came out (I think Evangeline Lily and Eva Longoria are in the advert) how we sniffed. How we laughed. Rolling on a foundation? Ludicrous. God, I want to strangle Eva Longoria. I think Evangeline is quite beautiful but she reminds me of the sister in law so *makes a stabbing noise* […]
Just when you thought that the only things you could grind were: a. Pepper b. Salt c. Coffee d. An Axe The cosmetic companies prove me wrong. I present Cliniques Superbalanced Mineral Powder Make Up with SPF 15: The grinding thing isn’t original – I had my beady eye on Smashbox’s Halo Hydrating Powder for a long time but at £41.50 (including a brush) it was too pricey for my liking PLUS there was only […]
Vibrating things have been big, like, forever, in the sex industry, but in cosmetics? This is sort of new. I was sent this Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara to try out last week and I finally got round to having a play. It’s a whopping £15 – I saw whopping because its rather pricey for a drugstore level mascara. I think £10 is steep for a mascara anyway (considering that 90% amount of them that just […]
Last week, my work colleague taught me the phrase “Brain Fart”. According to Urban Dictionary this is: A spontaneous stupid (Stupid the noun, not stupid the adjective) usually accompanied by loss of train of thought and saying something fantastically stupid without realising it. I have brain farts constantly, and I was having one when I picked up this item from www.adambeauty.com: I love shopping on Adambeauty and find myself randomly adding cheap tit bits into […]
As if the Cleopatra nose clip (yes, I bought it) wasn’t stupid enough, I have now found the Nose Roller invention that squeezes your big, wide, inadequate Asian nose into a Victora Beckham (I swear, I haven’t got it in for her this week) piggy nose: Wanna see how to use it?…
First stickers that go on the bottom of your feet, then calculators you carry round with you to calculate the calories in all your food, then its pills that make you have oily farts. The never ending desire to find a quick/cheap/easy ways to lose weight is never ending. Trust me I know. Six Second Abs? Have it. Wii Fit? Have it. Pills and teas? Have it. That Calculator? I have it. I recently bought […]
Last week I asked you to guess that this was… It is… A two sided mirror which is supposed to make application of eye make up easier (check the results from the side etc.) Do I find it useful? Absolutely not!
You know I love to find beauty inventions from around the world, so riddle me this – what is this thing? Let me know your guesses in the comments! What is it and what is it for? 😀
There’s nothing better than a good old bizarre strange Asian invention – so when I saw these nail protectors on eBay I just had to buy them: I am a complete novice when it comes to nail application. I can’t stay still long enough for the damn thing to dry so it always smudges, then I can’t stand it and it all comes off again. So these clips go on over the freshly painted nail […]
I love looking at Strapya World, a rather eccentric shop based in Japan which has lots of cute, weird, funny, useful, useless goodies, (specializing in phone charms but also other bits and pieces.) I spotted a cute bread based phone charm range – doughnuts! bun rolls! bagels! danish! and my favourite, white bread! Then I saw that the item is actually true to life size:
Just when I thought I owned every pointless item known to man… 1. Easiyo Yoghut Maker 2. A pair of scissors that shreds as it cuts 3. A doughnut maker 4. An electronic flea zapper comb 5. A core secrets ball and every single piece of exercise equipment I have ever bought from ‘As seen on Tv’ and the list goes on and on and on. I’ve had my eye on these Japanese Dariya hair […]
Found another daft invention: Fresh from Japan, arm shields to prevent your arms from tanning in the sun. C’mon! When I was a kid, I’d stick my arms out of the window to tan! You could just wear something long sleeved and have the air con on, or wear some sunscreen? Why am I even debating this? If you own this, then you are nuts.
