Hello all – I am currently going for another blog redesign so if the site looks mish-mashy for now, it’s just in transition. However, everything should be sorted by the weekend, if you have technical problems with the site do let me know and I will get it sorted! The reason for the change is because I still like to blog but I want to talk about different things now, not just cosmetics although that […]
When Kate Middleton because the Duchess of Cambridge, it was widely reported that the Bride did her own make up for the day, after taking some make up lessons. I am actually all for this – unless someone stupendous ends up doing my bridal make up, I’d much rather do it myself rather than pay for an average job. There was one thing people picked up on when it came to Kate Middleton’s bridal make […]
A few people have asked me about this, as I was interviewed recently for a New York Times Interview about my obsession with Japanese cosmetics. The blog got a really nice mention – you can read it here. It’s been a funny old week, but I have realised with the love of your family and cats, you can kick arse. Here’s a picture of a cat kicking arse: Bring it on!
Ok, so I learnt something new today. When it gets to summer time, the UK runs off BST not GMT. I did not know this. I thought you could just pick which one looked prettier. Blame the Education System under Labour. So to confirm, UK girls, the time I mean is 7pm BST. When you clock says this: So revised time late:
So its been announed that Estee Lauder have signed two new models, Constance Jablonski from France and Liu Wen from China. Over the years, models in Estée Lauder’s global campaigns have hailed from the U.S. (Karen Graham, Willow Bay, Carolyn Murphy, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Rhoda), the U.K. (Elizabeth Hurley), Czech Republic (Paulina Porizkova), Poland (Anja Rubik) and Ethiopia (Liya Kebede). I read this with a lot of interest over the fact that Estee are using […]
It’s Friday at last people! What a week I’ve had. I have so many cool posts in mind but I’m just so exhausted I can’t quite muster them up so bear with me…The swatch gallery is taking longer than expected, but I have faith in my computer whizz and I hope to have it up in the next month. Also, I can’t believe its October and I haven’t won the damn lottery yet. I am […]
Two new things that will be happening on the blog: a. I will do a weekly catch up, random post for free chatting about anything at all and just to let you know what is coming up on the blog and b. There will be a new daily post featuring a random swatch. We will call this Random Swatch. (P.S. The Hello Kitty was just a bribe to get you to read this post.)
Shu Uemura’s Nobara Foundation has been one of my favourites or a while – its a cream foundation which is crazy rich, creamy, gives great coverage. But alas, it was discontinued. Browsing the Shu site I noticed one of their latest products- the Nobara foundation in a stick! ($42) Oh my god! I need! And that’s not all….
Argh. It’s Sunday already. I want to stick my finger through my eyeball. But let’s be positive! Want to alert you to some new features and buttons that you may have noticed. Introducing the C-Box! This is a chat box/message board – sometimes I miss comments or I don’t get a chance to reply because WordPress isn’t playing ball. You can always leave me a message on the message board or discuss make up like […]
I have been a sick puppy this week hence the lack of posts! But I am gathering strength to tell you there’s loads of new goodies I finally got round to opening and testing – reviews coming up – plus a few tutorials. Next week is a hair tools special – a review a day on my large collection of hair appliances and some of the usual banter. Is there something you would like to […]
I am finally at an age where I don’t get them. Well ok, I got three. But I got them weeks ago. There’s none left apart from a few shards of chocolate and some gold foil. Two things – have an amazing giveaway coming up on Monday. It’s going to be really fab, I am going to grab my top picks from spring, so make sure you stay tuned and tell your friends! Next thing […]
Men wearing eyeliner is nothing new surely? Famous men, that is. Men in rock bands, actors, the extremely good looking and of course the emo/grunge/punk students who want to look alternative at college, before going to University to study accounting and become good members of society, like Mum told them to. Superdrug, the store that can’t keep shelves tidy have launched the guy liner…because its injected with testosterone and body hair which makes it different […]
Hello and welcome to Cosmetic-Candy.com This blog is a new, improved continuation of my Mostly Makeup Blog – why a new location? I just wanted more control and a new look too!

There will also be a Shop section for the pigment […]
