The Lipstick Effect

Because of the current economic woes, cosmetic giants, like L’oreal, Shiseido and Estee Lauder are reporting greater sales of cosmetics. It’s believed that during these hard times, as most of us have to give up the extravagant purchases, (new bathroom, holidays, Chanel handbags…ahem) Ladies have been giving themselves little boosts by buying little affordable treats […]

Cle De Peau Lipstick

I have already tried out some of Cle De Peau’s extra silky lipsticks – absolutely gorgeous, orgasmic lip colours but oh so expensive to go with it. I decided to try out one of the Lipstick N – this one resembles a traditional lipstick. I got shade 24. Like all Cle De Peau products it […]

In case you haven’t noticed, I do like to make my own palettes, as witnessed here with my Nars Multiple Palette (I was ahead of them), my multi talented palette or just putting palettes together in general. I bought a Make Up Forever plastic palette with 12 squares from a UK based shop called PAM […]

So there I was thinking that I wanted red lips for the festive season but I didn’t have a single red lip product. A quick rummage through my collection revealed about…er, 20 different red lipstick and glosses. So I don’t need a new one. Nevertheless I did a few quick swatches of the four products […]

Light Pink YSL Lipstick disaster!

So there I was digging my new YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick – it does have the most pigmented dreamy texture okay? The colour in question is a soft, baby pink, the kind I thought would be rocking with a smokey eye. I did a smokey eye with Nars Kyoto Pencil (oh how I love) and […]

You know how there’s some things that just make you go, Cor! Like; Errr, wait bad photo…like… and… Something else made me go Cor! It was YSL’s new Rouge Volupte Lipstick. The case is just STUN. NING. This is what they say about it: The cream texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips, for […]

Ben & Jerry’s Lip Balms!

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 […]

Anna Sui Glitter Lipsticks

Anna Sui Cosmetics used to be on Sale in the UK in Boots but sadly no more, although the make up can be bought from Strawberrynet and also Ebay. The packaging is so unique and cute; black enamel and the motif of roses. For some reason I felt tempted by these two lipsticks, even though […]
