Sisley’s Autumn 2012 offering is Belle De Shanghai is a beauty – I have two of the products here to review, one of the new style blushers and photo lip glosses. I have a few products from Sisley and one thing I’ve found is that they last a looonnnngggg time.
I got a newsletter yesterday announcing that American Apparel, makers of slightly porny looking imagery are giving away free lip glosses at participating stores – no purchase necessary! They remind me of Nars (to look at): The highly detailed newsletter says that you can pick up a free gloss at any American Apparel retail location and er, that’s it. These usually cost £10 each so if I ever get to leave the house again […]
I have a massive spot spot for make up range, Heavy Rotation – now made by Isehan, the range is quite bold as far as Japanese make up ranges go – lots of black smoky eyeliners and nude lips! They released 4 new cream blushers and 4 lipglosses – I got 2 of each to try: The whole range is very pink based! I got:
A YouTuber made me do it! Except I can’t remember which one. One with pretty lips. A month or two ago a YouTuber mentioned one of her favourite lip glosses ever is Chanel’s Brilliant Extreme in Giggle.

Inika Cosmetics has an interesting back story; the founder Miranda Bond struggled with endometriosis and thought shouldn’t wouldn’t be able to conceive naturally. She decided to change things in her lifestyle, like her diet (very important of course) and eliminating products that contain potentially harmful chemicals that can be found in cosmetics. Once she began to detox her life she fell pregnant naturally and eventually Inika was born, a 100% natural beauty brand that is […]
A few weeks ago I went to Cheshire Oaks, which is a “Outlet Village” – ie. there’s a load of discount stores in one place. To be honest it was pretty rubbish because places like that always depends on the time of year and what the mainstream stores are getting rid off, plus, with there being so many sales on the high street, you don’t necessarily notice much of a discount. So generally…it was a […]
Another Christmas present I got from Mr C was a rather impressive haul from Giorgio Armani; impressive because he went and chose a lip gloss for me and I am pretty hard to buy for (I had pretty much hinted about what shades of the Eyes to Kill I wanted in case he got me a really horrible colour). When you buy a few items from Armani they put it in a nice red gift […]
I was sent a selection of products from a French brand, terre d’Oc which is certified organic, non-comogenic and is formulated with a number of oils and butters. The idea is that the products nourish as well as looking pretty! I have 3 products here, Eye Shadow Duo which has a cream texture in Rose and Prune Takaro, Eye Kohl in 701 Prune Kerala and Gloss Sublime Lip Gloss in Peach. Want a closer look?
