Etude House Lash Perm Proof Mascara & Primer Basecara Review

Etude-House-Lash-Perm-Super-Proof-Mascara.jpg

People quite frequently ask me, What is my favourite mascara? And my answer usually is…I dunno. It changes. Plus my lashes aren’t like your lashes, they’re straight and kind of awkward so, it takes a special kind of mascara. It’s like having big boobs or big feet; you need to buy good quality, expensive, rare […]

Face-It-Real-Diamond-Lip-Gloss-PK101-and-BR801-.jpg

The Face Shop is a Korean brand with some really interesting one off products.  I find their Korean site very hard to navigate though so it’s tricky for me to see all the products they offer in one place. I did spot these Real Diamond (allegedly contains a small amount of diamond powder!) on eBay […]

Tony-Mony-Galaxy-Nail-Polishes.jpg

I love a shimmery and glittery polish – why? Because any idiot can apply a glitter polish and make it look good, present company included. Having said that I despise removing them -urgh.  But I love the effect. I either don’t wear a polish or wear something quite striking, nothing inbetween. When I spotted these […]

Holika-Holika-UV-Magic-Shield-Eye-Brightening-Sun-SPF50-.jpg

Now this is an interesting product! Holika Holika’s UV Magic Shield Stick is a Eye Brightening SPF stick.  It is supposed to brighten, of course, and provide a whopping SPF50 is sun protection.  Sounds like a good idea to me – if the sun is the cause of mucho ageing then it’s a good idea […]

Holika Holika is fast becoming a brand I pay attention to because the products are pretty good, interesting and…well, fun.  There aren’t that many fun brands around.  Holika Holika Magic Pole mascara is honestly called ‘Magic Pole’ – try not to laugh, and has a very interesting applicator, Half Givenchy, Half Jill Stuart. The packaging […]

Lucidarling-Fantastic-Rouge-Gloss-Lipstick-Rouge.jpg

Etude House LUCIDarling lip glosses and lipsticks are rather lovely – I’ve tried a few shades before, and they’re pretty pigmented and hydrating. I bought 2 lipsticks and 2 lip glosses, I wanted a cool toned mauve and a reds. I’ve come to realise I buy more lipsticks than lip glosses – I guess it’s […]

Holika Holika Enamel Magic Melomovie Gel Eyeliner in Pink & Purple Review

Holika-Holika-Enamel-Magic-Melomovie-Gel-Eyeliner-in-Pink-Purple-Review.jpg

I’ve tried a few things from the extremely cute Holika Holika brand, and I’ve found their skincare is stronger than their cosmetics. Nevertheless I tried their cute Melomovie Gel Eyeliners because I love gel liners and there were 2 unusual colours I don’t already own (purple and hot pink). Packaging – (quite inconsistent with Holika […]

Etude-House-Soft-Touch-Eyeshadow-1.jpg

I am always looking out for new releases from Etude House and I spotted these cool Shadow Liners a few weeks ago (took forever to arrive!). These are dual use products, both eyeshadows and liners. I’d say it’d also work beautifully as a base! I bought two, 01 which is a nude beige and 04 […]
