Sleek-i-Divine-Garden-of-Eden-Palette-.jpg

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 […]

Benefit The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder Review

Benefit-The-Porefessional-Agent-Zero-Shine-Powder-Review.jpg

I am always on the hunt for a good powder, but it’s hard to find a decent one for dry skin like mine – everything looks cakey or blotchy whereas I like dewy luminous skin.  Therefore, I was a bit dubious about Benefit’s latest addition; The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder – it sounded a […]

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 […]

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. […]

Charlotte-Tilbury-Re-Shape-Re-Size-Lip-Liner-and-Luxe-Colour-Lasting-Lip-Lacquer-.jpg

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
