Becca-Fine-Pressed-Powder-Luminous-Make-Up-Revew.jpg

I was alerted to hoards of amazing Becca make up on Fragrance Direct (a discount beauty site) by Lipglossiping - I am a HUGE Becca fan although I do find the products are obviously quite pricey.  However, I used to buy the odd thing from Zuneta when there were sales going on.  I have wanted to try all their base products together for ages – especially the Luminous Skin Colour (a sheer tinted foundation) which retails […]

Just a shorty post – I saw a brand recently called VDL (stands for Violet Dream Luminous….errr…yes) a Korean beauty brands owned by LG (yes, the electronics people).   I couldn’t resist hunting down and buying some items and so far – they are LOVELY.  I bought the Expert Colour Lip Cube colours in Rosewood (beige) and Outbloom (red), Locking Pressed Powder, Lavender Eye Primer and two of the Sparkling eyeshadows in Chocolate and Bronze.

Sleek-Palette-Californ.I.A.jpg

I must admit I haven’t acquired any Sleek makeup for a while but the newest releases (launching the 15th of January) at Superdrug and selected Boots. If you haven’t seen my swatches of previous Sleek eyeshadow palettes you can see them here.  Anyway, Garden of Eden eyeshadow palette.  This is a predominantly earthy palette with greens as the accent, which is what I have been waiting for! I love greens! There are also earthy browns […]

I actually hauled these goodies a longggg time ago, but have only just had the chance to write about them now.   Vidi Vici is a premium Korean brand which is sold in various spots across Asia.  Their products do really appeal to me, as they have quite a chic look and are quite interesting.  When my aunt went over earlier last year I gave her a small shopping list and we’ll ignore the fact […]

Christmas Gift: Charlotte Tilbury Re-Shape & Re-Size Lip Liner and Luxe Colour Lasting Lip Lacquer Review

When I first saw make up artist extraordinaire, Charlotte Tilbury’s make up range online, I wanted to lick the screen, it looks so delicious.  However – with the prices quite high and no counter in my local Selfridges, I didn’t order anything, although all of it looks stunning (with a Scott Barnes-ey feel, if you remember his cosmetic line). For Christmas my aunt bought me a lip gloss and liner from the range: I have […]

One of my favourite US brands, Tarte, will be coming to the UK via QVC next March 2014!  (Exact date tbc!).   I have tried a selection of their products, and liked them – in particular their maracuja oil creaseless concealer (it’s really thick and opaque!). However it’s not a cheap brand in import, SO, I was pleased to see that QVC will have a decent selection at decent prices (there are more products than […]

Make Up For Ever (MUFA) Sepia Blue Palette Review and Swatches

Make-Up-For-Ever-MUFA-Sepia-Blue-Palette-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

My favourite eye looks to do is a mix of neutral and brights; you see, in my heart of hearts, I just can’t resist a green or turquoise eye, but it’s not always suitable for every day wear so…I love to mix it with neutral colours such as brown tones.   So…I wasn’t on the market for another eyeshadow palette at all and then I spotted this beauty from Make Up Forever called Blue Sepia. […]

Have you heard of Aerin cosmetics yet? Aerin Lauder, granddaughter of Estee Lauder launched a fragrance and beauty collection a while ago now, although she is well known for her interiors in the USA.  Speaking to some ladies, not everyone has heard of the brand although to be fair Aerin hasn’t been widely available (there are now counters in selected John Lewis’ in case my ladies in outside of London want to take a look […]
