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 […]

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

The-Face-Shop-Black-Label-Lipsticks-in-Pinky-Brown-and-Lady-Wine-Swatches-and-Review.jpg

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!

Giorgio-Armani-Rouge-Ecstasy-CC-Lipstick-Review-and-Swatches-.jpg

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

Bobbi-Brown-Rich-Chocolate-Collection-A-Few-Picks-Berry-Baby-Pink-and-Pink-Coral-.jpg

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 […]

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Diamond Dog Review and Swatches

Urban-Decay-Moondust-Eyeshadow-in-Diamond-Dog-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

Two people in the space of a week mentioned an eyeshadow to me, ‘Diamond Dog’ (can’t forget a name like that!) from Urban Decay – I knew i had to hunt it down and get a look at this shadow.  I wasn’t disappointed.  They say: This dazzlingly sparkly shadow innovates with a chic feel and not a single speck of chunky glitter. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle collide with intense, dreamy hues and lush, 3D metallics […]

Essence Cosmetics will hit the UK in September 2013

Essence-cosmetics-1.jpg

I first came across Essence Cosmetics when I went on holiday to Hungary, and loved how huge that range was and how affordable everything is.  I reviewed some of my purchases here - well, finally, Essence is hitting UK shores this month!  Essence will be available in six Wilkinson Stores in the UK (tbc very soon) – keep an eye out for more news.  I tried their eyeliners, which are fab, as well as some nail […]
