Christmas Gift (Good): Tom Ford Lip Colour Violet Fatale


Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had a great time.  It’s felt like a seriously long holiday, but you can’t beat a rest.  Over Christmas I managed to pull some nice bargains in the sales but also got a couple of make up items are gifts. Most people wouldn’t chance buying me make up as I have so much it’s hard to know what I actually have! But Mr C got me my […]

Jane Iredale Pure Moist Lipstick in Theresa – Review and Swatch


Whilst Jane Iredale are well known for their mineral make up, did you know they also do colour cosmetics?  Yes? No? Well they do!  Launched in September 2013, these Pure Moist Lipsticks are a kinder option for your lips; they are hydrating colours (24 shades) that are free from synthetic preservative and FD and C dyes. They also contain orange peel wax, avocado and sunflower seed oil, and more.   I chose the shade Theresa, […]

The Face Shop – Black Label Lipsticks in Pinky Brown and Lady Wine Swatches and Review


The Face Shop is a Korean beauty brand, perhaps less well known than her sisters, Etude House and Tony Moly, but also more understated and elegant.  Like Innisfree, The Face Shop tries to create products based around an organic ethos and with a natural vibe (i.e. Chia Seed moisturiser, Mango Seed Cream etc.).  I find the brand quite interesting. I purchased two of their ‘Black Label’ lipsticks a while – just because they were cheap […]

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick Review and Swatches – Pic Heavy!


Last month, Giorgio Armani Beauty launched a range of 36 new lipsticks, called the Rouge Ecstasy CC (Colour and Care) range.  After the whole BB cream rage, followed by the CC cream ‘thing’ it was inevitable I guess, that other products would start creating multi functional products with the label.   I personally thought that is seemed like a risk; Armani beauty has such elegant product that don’t at all seem faddy to me, surely […]

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Collection; A Few Picks! Berry, Baby Pink and Pink Coral


I was in a big department store the other night (yes, night) and I was observing which beauty counters were the busiest.  Whilst the big boys (Chanel, Dior, Estee Lauder) and the more obscure (Illamasqua, Shu Uemura) had a few people milling around, quite predictably, the super busy counters were MAC and……Bobbi Brown. It’s not surprising I guess, since Bobbi Brown manages to create highly wearable and elegant colours that work for everyone. And even […]

Make Up Atelier Paris Make Up Look: Black Star Red T174, Iridescent Smoke Y243, Lipstick in B34 Sandy Pink


I was sent a selection of random Make Up Atelier cosmetics, and decided to have a little play with them at the weekend.  And boy did we have some fun! The Make Up Atelier Paris range if you are not familiar with is, is quite vast; it’s a professional artists range and there are a huge amount of products to suit all skin tones and types.  I have three products here - Black Star Red T174, […]

Nars Some Like It Hot Lip Palette – LE in Selfridges is not that Hot


A few weeks ago, before Nars screwed me over, I was in Selfridges and treated myself to two Selfridges specials – a lip set and a palette (which I will review later but it is quite boring).   The lip set I got is called ‘Some Like It Hot’ – one of my favourite Jack Lemmon films!   I couldn’t resist this kit when I saw it was all nudes.  This contains two travel sized […]

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick and Lipliner; Naked 2 and Bank Swatches and Review


Urban Decay’s newest lipstick is the Revolution Lipstick – a ‘Baddass, pigment rich, creamy, long-lasting, hydrating’ formula.  If you want pigmented and fun, let’s face it, Urban Decay is a pretty good bet.  I have two colours here to show you today: The packaging of the Revolution Lipstick to me looks expensive and has a more grown up feel than previous Urban Decay lipsticks (you know the fun ones with the dagger?!). It reminds me […]
