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 […]
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.
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 […]
Gosh – I remember the days when the pound was so strong against the dollar that I could roll on to adambeauty and buy an eyeshadow in every shade. Those days are gone, for sure. Nevertheless, when I saw Kanebo Kate’s newest gel eyeshadow offering I couldn’t resist picking up 4 shades. I love cream and gel eyeshadows! Kate’s previous offering of gel eyeshadows were more of a dense mousse texture and came in a […]
I definitely don’t look after my cuticles the way I should – I think I just don’t like having anything greasy on my hands hence my reluctance to use cuticle products and hand creams. However – without a doubt they are looking raggedy, so I purchased this Kanebo Coffret D’or Cuticle Care Oil. I was swayed by the pretty two tone oil: This cuticle oil contains aloe extract, and has a floral scent – it’s […]
I decided to order these new releases from Kanebo KATE – Lasting Gel Eyeliners – because I thought they’d be like the Avon Supershock Gel Liners but longer lasting and smudgeproof. KATE is such a good brand for the price: I ordered this gel eyeliner in 2 shades, brown and soft black rather than my usual hard dramatic black – I’ve realised it’s just too much for day to day. So my items arrived, one […]
Whenever I’ve tried Japanese or Korean foundation products, I’ve been fairly happy with the results but not with the colouring (I am NC35 and I find most foundation products too light for me). I took a risk when I ordered Coffret D’or’s newest foundation, Silk Cream (SPF21) because it looks just like ‘my’ kind of base – creamy and hydrating with medium coverage. They say: Rich, smooth cream that creates exceptionally silky skin with smoothness […]
A few months ago I bought the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base primer and Silk Cream Foundation (review later today!). I thought the idea behind the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat was very clever and appropriate for the winter season – it’s a pearly pink type cream in a small pot which is used as a primer, but for dry spots. On top of that, this product can be used as other things – […]
