You know you are about to buy something, and all the time you’re thinking, no, don’t buy this, its a really bad idea. But you buy it anyway? That’s how I felt when I shelled out £17.32 (or some other ridiculous figure – our VAT/TAX rate has been cut from 17.5% to 15% and most retailers have been forwarding the discount to shoppers but clearly haven’t had time to make it a nice round figure) […]
I mentioned that I had got Kat Von D’s lighting for lips set so decided to open the box and have a quick play. In the kit are mini sized lip glosses, packed with glitter: Gut reaction? These are very pretty and easy to wear because they are sheer – in fact I’m almost a bit dissapointed that they are so sheer that the colour is barely noticable – the glitter is the focus here. […]
I have talked about Dior’s Creme De Gloss a few times, here and here. I know some of you ladies just dig it, but I’m not a fan. Nice texture but lifeless colours and dull lips on me. I tried the fig and beige previously and gave them both away. Cue Pink Essence a LE colour from the Night Collection from Dior Xmas 08. I just happened to swatch this whilst buying the glitter gloss. […]
I didn’t love Dior’s Creme De Gloss at all when it was first released. Yes it is a nice texture, but I hated how dull it looked on the lips and I hated the colour selection; I owned Beige and Fig which I just found so dull dull dull. So back at the Dior counter, the girl tells me that the Creme De Gloss (one in a nude beige, one was Pink Essence) is LE. […]
I know you US ladies have NYX all over the place but it’s unavailble in the UK. It’s a shame because it looks like such a cheap but cheerful brand, lots of colour choices and of a good standard. I can’t think of anything in the UK like that, that isn’t too expensive to be cheap or has some horrid packaging. There is a seller on eBay called mssskel who has a lot of NYX […]
What’s the point of fighting it? Angelina is stunning far away and close up. Her lipstick here is sooooooooo sexy. It’s a whitish-nude gloss, I presume. So nice – yes, I am on the hunt for it. The rest of her face is obviously airbrushed but she is still a huge beauty, right? She’s incomparable to that rather skanky, Megan Fox. Urgh look at her nails! Even her nails are nice!
This is a special feature, a quick review of the items I bought from Shopping99 a Taiwanese site that sells beauty, fashion and lifestyle goods. This super party queen lip set was one of my first purchases from shopping99. It features 4 super sparkly glosses: I love how sparkly the glosses are and I really like the plastic spatula applicator. The texture is quite a standard gloss texture, there’s no overly sticky texture or strong […]
I mentioned a few days ago that I was desperate for a vanilla scented gloss from Bloom – and it is mine! I love the scent – it’s a warm vanilla very comforting. The colour is a beautiful orangey peach. Is it a Autumn shade? Nah – but who cares! It’s lovely! I also really like the applicator head – its just round and there’s just something about it that is really nice to use […]
First experience with Shiseido Lip Gloss and Lip Liner…and its been good. There’s something so classic about Shiseido products – refined, simple, understated. Apricot Nectar is a pink-peach (more pink than peach) and Sepia on Ice liner is a brown nude. Sepia on ice is on special offer at
I love my little make up bag…well, medium sized make up bag, the one I carry round with me. Tis a dialemma to decide what to put in to sometimes. I want products that are quick and easy to apply; I want sticks and wants, cream formulas so I don’t have to carry many brushes. I need essentials like concealer and powder and lipsticks. I don’t want the bag to be too big or heavy […]
That was the longest title ever, no? Clinique have brought out their new High Impact Lipsticks in the UK and Boots have Bonus Time! I’m not one for Clinique, because I think most of their staff are a little on the snotty side, and their range is not that creative. Lipstick – Pure Posh, Lipliner – Nudey.
So I went thought this, ‘I’m not buying expensive make up anymore’ thing, and decided to have a look round my local Superdrug counter. Drawn to Bourjois, I found these lovely lip glosses, Les Nudes and indulged in a few; #33 Brun Poetic#36 Fleur d’oranger poetic#34 Rose Mythic Brun Poetic is a true, cool nude beige, with silver shimmer. Fleur d’oranger is gorgeous, super shimmery brightening orange and Rose Mythic is a cool toned nude […]
Seduced by Monica Bellucci… I fell madly in love with my Dior Denim Rose Gloss I purchased last week (on top of MAC Masque – pretty combo!). So I decided to give two of the Creme De Glosses a go in Fig and Beige Elixir. Swatch: The blurb says; Crème de Gloss What it is:A creamy lipstick in a gloss. What it is formulated to do:Dior is on everyone’s lips this fall. Dior Crème de […]
I think Maquillage make some of the best lipsticks and glosses around..I really do. I bought five colours from the New Climax colours – this one being by far my favourite – RS755: It’s a cool toned rose with shimmers. The tube is unusal as it looks like a lipstick, you it actually plastic, so you swivel it and the colour comes out. The thing is – I rarely finish any make up because I […]
So today I went down to my local RMK counter for a makeover. However the centre where the stand is was packed beyond belief! This place has car parks surrounding it, and six of them were completely full (this parks thousands of cars) and we had to go round and round and round so I was half an hour late. Luckily, the SA said she would do my eyes and lips for me (which was […]
How utterly cool is this? Ben & Jerry’s lip balm in ice cream style tubs!: It comes in three flavours, Chop Chip Cookie Dough, Choc Fudge Brownie Lip Balm, Peanut Butter Cup Lip Balm. It’s worth it for the packaging alone! But – I would have liked a fruity balm, like a raspberry swirl or something. Or my favourite flavour ever, From Russia With Buzz (tis discontinued but I mourn the days I would eat […]
