KATE Wide Edge Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches – PU-1 and BR-2!

KATE-Wide-Edge-Eyeshadow-Palette-Review-and-Swatches-.jpg

Japanese eyeshadows, especially high street/drugstore level brands usually come in palettes with a particular colour theme (ie. browns or purples etc.) and come with a selection of shades from light to dark – very handy.  They also tend to be sheer and shimmery although some palettes pack a real punch, the majority are wearable daytime palettes. If you ask me, there was this season when KATE had the Glam Trick Eyes (absolutely stunning eyeshadows, pigmented, […]

How to take lip stick off easily! Kanebo Lip Fresh Make Up Remover Solution Review

Kanebo-Lip-Fresh-.jpg

There’s a reason why I have been avoiding doing lip swatches for a while; because it is such a pain to put lipstick on and take it back off again! I certainly found that it hurt my lips a lot, and they started to hurt and flake after a while. Also I hate how long lasting lipsticks dry and stick to my lips sometimes! Terrible! Then I spotted this teeny product on Adambeauty. It’s called […]

Aube Couture Designing Impression Eyes Eyeshadow Palette 553 Review & Swatches!

Aube-Couture-Desigining-Impression-Eyes-553-.jpg

Aube disappeared a few years ago and became Aube Couture, quite a grown up range of cosmetics which a chic, elegant edge.  I like their products although they are made for the grown up lady so everything is quite muted and subtle. I purchased one of their new Designing Impression Eyes in 554 which is a purple set.  As with a lot of Japanese compacts, it’s packed full with 5 colours, a mirror and 4 […]

Japan Haul featuring Love Clover, Addiction, Canmake, Kiss and SANA!

Love-Clover-Marshmallow-Fit-Foundation-Base-Powder.jpg

My lovely friend in Japan helped me out with a haul – yep, about twice a year (I think!) I get this urge to try out make up from Japan which isn’t that easily available. We had a bit of a disaster with nail polish (apparently you can’t send them via airmail) but we got there in the end! I have had mixed results with Love Clover (from B&C Labs) products but I noticed their […]

In which I cried a bit at the till: RMK Dusty Bright Eyes 02 Grayish Green Review and Swatches

RMK-Dusty-Bright-Eyes-Grayish-Green-.jpg

A few weeks ago, PRE spending ban* might I add, I hopped along to my local RMK counter for an innocent browse and ended up buying this cute eyeshadow/cream shadow duo product from their Autumn 2011 Collection, named Dusty Bright Eyes. Dusty Bright eyes is 3 grams of cream eyeshadow (long lasting waterproof) and a sparkly eyeshadow AND a dual ended brush. There are 6 shades to choose from, for me it had to be […]

Got Knots in your Hair? The Liese Smooth Hair Cocktail Review

Liese-Hair-Treatment-Smooth.jpg

Knots, they are the bane of my life. For some reason, I have an area around the nape of my neck which is always getting knotted – I mean real clusters of hair that are super hard to run a brush through (I can’t live without an Ouchless brush, and before you ask – I tried the Tangle Teaser years ago and didn’t like it!). Anyway – knots.  When I saw this product from Liese, […]
