Last week I visited one of my favourite luxe cosmetic brands Giorgio Armani in Harvey Nicolas Manchester, as they currently have a pop up counter in there! The Armani counter is very sleek, spacious and also quite private – perfect for getting a little make over without glaring passers by! Where to begin with the Armani brand if you have never tried their products before? Their range is luxe and therefore is pricy, but also […]
Flori Roberts is a cosmetic and skincare brand developed for women of colour – there’s a fairly generous selection of products and colours to choose from that particularly complement darker skin tones. The colour products from the range look intriguing, and I wanted to try out some of the darkest shades in the collection! I have Bloodstone and Black Brandy, both very dark toned rich berry-plums. I have been obsessed with these type of lip […]
YSL’s new Baby Doll Kiss & Blush for Lips & Cheek colours have been gracing my handbag make up bag (the one I carry everywhere with me) for the last few weeks. A soft matte finish dual use products for cheeks and lips, this clever product comes in 12 wearable shades (from neutrals to brights). Spring if for Colour! I have 01 Fuchsia Desinvolte, a hot pink and 05 Rouge Effrontee, a clear bright orange […]
One of Bobbi Brown’s newer eyeliner additions is the Smokey Kajal Liners. I absolutely love eyeliners – it’s just an obsession I have, so was rather excited to try out these new releases. These Kajals are quite interesting to say the least. There are six shades; They say: “A new take on tradition-Bobbi’s inspiration for this highly pigmented, incredibly blendable formula comes from classic kohl eyeliners. Her reason? This richly coloured liner can be applied […]
Magnetic Nudes from MAC is a collection of lip, cheek, eye and skin colours with a rich, metallic, smokey, rich edge. I have a selection of products here to review; So what did I think of this vast collection?
Do you remember that not too long ago, No. 17 became SEVENTEEN? I have to be honest, like an old person, I disregarded it and kept calling the brand, No. 17 because it had been that for so long, like how my mum called Cif Jif, or Mr C calls Snickers, Marathons. Anyway, names aside, SEVENTEEN seems to have moved away from that dark blue packaging into sleeker black one although the feel is […]
I somehow managed to completely miss the Nars Eye Paint launch and subsequent hype – I guess because I have so many cream eyeshadows I wasn’t really interested in buying more. They nearly always go off before I have even got good use out of them. But then… I saw these colours on a Pixiwoo video and decided to buy one colour to try (the silver, as a love silver with warm brown eyeshadow). Then […]
The newest instalment of the Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palettes is called Garden of Eden, and rather appropriately, it comes in a snakeskin print box; Sleek eyeshadow palettes are extremely good value of money, and come with a selection of 12 colours in each palette. They are good quality too, with soft and pigmented colours (in the past, I’ve found the palettes a bit fragile because of how soft they can be). Here’s a closer look at […]
