The last time I was at a Paul & Joe counter, I wrote about how the SA shadowed my every step until I gave in a purchased all the items she wanted me to. This time, I was in the same store (Fenwicks, London) but the staff were new and they totally different. I was excited, so excited about going to a Paul & Joe counter to pick some Select Eyeshadows for a palette. I […]
It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday… This week has been hectic and so I’ve been going through my archives to see what I have been meaning to talk about. Can you believe I forgot to talk about my experiences with the legend that is the Fairy Drops mascara!? Fairy Drops mascara comes in many formulas now – when I bought it, the packaging had been renewed to the Las Vegas Sweets design! I […]
Recently I’ve been in ‘boring eyeshadow mode’. What do I mean by boring eyeshadow mode? Well, for me, it’s browns, mattes, nudes. As much as I love me peacock type colours there’s a time and a place or everything and I’ve grown to appreciate the natural glowy look. I purchased two eyeshadow palettes from Kanebo’s Kate range a few months ago: These are what I’d call, ideal work place eyeshadow palettes.
Sun screen, oh sun screen. After my Elemis skin scan I will no longer leave the house without Sunscreen! I recently bought 2 sunscreens (how many times can I say that?) from Kose’s Nature & Co brand. Nature & Co is a really interesting range and one of the first Japanese ‘natural’ ranges. I bought the older one, which is the Pure White Care Day Essence and the newest release Mint & Tea Sun Protector. […]
I don’t actually have the discipline of a hardened vitamin taker – my Nan won’t leave the house with out her cod liver oil capsules – but I can’t stop myself from trying new supplements all the time. I used to give up on them very quickly because I get headaches and itchy skin very quickly if something doesn’t suit me. When I get odd symptoms, I stop taking it, end of. One brand of […]
I don’t own many brushes although I have recently acquired a very posh Shu Uemura brush (more on this later) and this cute handbag sized Ikemoto Cushion Hair Brush! There’s a real trend with Japanese hair brushes where they will infuse the brush with a type of oil to add extra gloss and shine! This Ikemoto brush contains Tsubaki (or camellia oil) which is supposed to be good for hair. This brush contains 1.2mk of […]
I am trying to be more careful with sunscreen – I’ve noticed my skin looking more tired and aged, as well as the fact I am getting darker and darker despite not going on holiday (sob!) or indeed sitting in the sun for any length of time. So I bought a number of face SPF, body sunscreens and so on to ‘try’ and be more careful with UV protection! One I’d like to present to […]
I’ve seen Shiseido’s Fog Bar product around forever but have never bought it because…well, what’s a Fog Bar? How could and why would a product be called a Fog Bar? Why? Why? Je Ne Pas Comprende (go ahead, correct me). This Fog Bar comes in pink, it’s for girls and it comes with a PINK SATIN SCRUNCHIE. My life is complete: I believe, quite strongly that no one apart from a 9 year old ballerina […]
