Not just a pretty package: Lavshuca Brow Powder Review

Lavshuca-Eyebrow-Brow-Powder.jpg

Eye brow pencils, eye brow powders, eyebrow gels – what’s your preference? I am a brow gel fan because mine are already quite dark and thick and tinted gels are natural and quick to use. My favourite brow pencil is Shu Uemura’s Hard Pencil which is very natural. This Lavshuca Brow Powder is one of those things I chucked in the basket at the last moment when doing a little haul. This powder comes in […]

EOTD: A neutral pink and chocolate eye with Lavshuca Dual Eyes

I didn’t buy the Lavshuca Dual Eyes palettes when they first came out but bought a few recently in the Adambeauty.com sale – I am SO glad I did. Despite looking quite dull they are highly wearable and gorgeous eyeshadows! This one is the Pink Variation – a frosty pink and a chocolate brown duo. I like these in the week because it requires less thought for work: On the eye: So its not a […]

Adam Beauty Haul! Lavshuca, Esprique Precious and Freshel Swatches

There are more and more Asian based beauty stores appearing, and the majority of them are reliable and have good prices. My favourite though is still Adambeauty.com. The site can be hard to navigate but I adoreeeee it. It takes him longer to get make up in sometimes, but his prices are very reasonable and the shipping is cheap ($2) and fast. I have only ever had a problem in 100 transactions with him ONCE, […]

Review: Lavshuca Mix Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Autumn 2009

Lavshuca by Kanebo, is one of the reasons why I fell so hard in love with make up, yet the brand has been missing the point, so to speak, for quite a few seasons. I have skipped a lot of the last few collections because they looked repetitive and somewhat dull. But hey! The new palettes for Autumn sure look pretty: I choose BU-1 which I paid about £10 for from Adambeauty: There’s no doubt […]

Lavshuca & Kate Spring 2009

lavshuca-2009-spring-collection.jpg

There was a time when I loved Lavshuca like I loved…Krispy Kreme. I haven’t been impressed with Lavshuca for a LONG time and it used to be my true love: What do you think of Lavshuca Spring 2009: Blah blah blah. Always the same thing, variations of the same kind of colours. I want STRONG! I want CONTRASTS! Even the green palette doesn’t grab me. Lipstick sure is purdy and looks pigmented too: PK2 and […]

Lavshuca Powder Foundation

dscn8364_s

I am a fan of liquid foundations over powder, since I hate the dry cakey look – but Japanese powder foundations covered with a base normally do a pretty damn good job. I saw the Lavshuca combo and decided to give it a go! I also tried the matching base, but it is just a tidgy bottle you need to shake before use: Base: A light beige colour – the texture is very watery: The […]

Happy Day After Valentines Day!

Did everyone have a good day? I don’t see the big deal sometimes *moaning already?!* – but I am sure I made a bigger deal of it when I was looking for a boyfriend but when you’re in comfortable coupledom, I’m more of a – ‘Leave the flowers, let’s go and stuff our faces instead’, kinda gal. Valentine’s is in my I’m-not-that-interested holiday, along with Pancake Day, Take your child to work day and Uncle’s […]

Cream Eyeshadows Part 2

Eye Jellies / Mousse & Watery Apart from Cream Eyeshadows in a jar, the newest additions to my collection have been eye jellies and water colours. I swatched the Maybelline Eye Mousse Colours before and wasn’t madly impressed – the Stila is similar but I think firmer textured and more pigmented than them. Brand: Stila (US) Texture: Mousse in a glass Jar Application: Best with a brush. Mousse can be a bit tricky; it looks […]
