One of Melliesh’s brand new items is this retractable Powder Brush! I love anything that I can take out and about with me. The Melliesh brand comes in cute packaging: This brush works for powder and blush and can you can get a different bristle depending on how far you retract the brush: Obviously you can do this with any retractable face brush! But the flat shape makes it quite versatile for contouring and under […]
Ever pass on a Limited Edition item only to regret it, then find it impossible to find one later? I had this kind of regret with this pretty Shu Uemura blusher/highlighter called STEAM a while ago. Steam was from the Autumn/Fall 2008 collection. I spotted it and passed up on it…then saw it on eBay for just a little more than the retail price. Hurrah! Steam is a pale light white-peach with micro sparkles. The […]
ELLE Magazine have created a limited edition nail colour with Mavala to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. The shade is a slate with a purple undertone. There’s no shimmer, it’s just a beautiful bold grey, totally elegant without looking dull or dirty! I love it, The colour is available throughout September and October exclusively at John Lewis Stores from 01st September, priced at £3.95. What do you think? Will you be purchasing?
I wanted these two babies the first time I laid my eyes on them! Visee Japan’s latest offering is these snazzily cased Brilliance Forming Eyes. I like Visee eyeshadows – don’t love. These two are extremely cute: The one in the blue case is A-6 and the pink eyeshadow is A-7. The pattern engrained on the top of the eyeshadows is cute…but not, I-musn’t-touch pretty which is a good thing otherwise this would be sat […]
I popped on the counter to buy the Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick the other day, and whilst I was there, the Riveting Collection caught my eye. The very clued up SA told me it was an exclusive to Selfridges only, no online or in any other stores so naturally this made me 19281248192% more interested. There were 4 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, two blushers and some matte nail polishes in the range (its only […]
I told myself I wouldn’t buy anything else too pretty because I wouldn’t be able to use it but I broke that rule – yep – for this – the Paul & Joe Alice in Wonderland Collection for 2010. This comes in two variations – Day Dream 02 (peach) and Fantasy 01 (pink). I got Day Dream. Here it is: The tin is beautiful – but big. Much bigger than I thought it would be […]
Along with the Crystal Lip Balms, Clarins has also released three lip glosses in clicky pens for the Summer Instant Sun Light Collection: These three glosses have a SPF 6 and come in Vanilla, Coral and Cinnamon. Its the traditional clicky format. The glosses were more pigmented than I expected and have a light texture – not too heavy for the summer. It also felt quite comfortable on my lips and hydrating. Vanilla is a […]
Out of the entire Clarins Instant Sun Light Collection for 2010, these Crystal Lip Balms were the most thing I was most excited about. They’re transparent! (or see through, if you like!) It comes in 3 shades – Crystal Coral, Crystal (looks like a light pink) and Crystal Red. As well as being a lip balm, there’s a tint of colour and its supposed to have line filling and lip perfecting qualities: 03 Crystal Red […]
