Shu Uemura have a gorgeous looking collection for Xmas 2013, designed by Takashi Murakami, a Japanese artist who works in fine arts media (painting and sculpture) and commercial media (film and animation). His work has a features a mixture of manga, anime, motifs, bright colours, flat and glossy surfaces etc. His collection for Shu features two exclusive palettes, a selection of lip and cheek (dual purpose) creams, mini lash curlers and some favourites (such […]
Guerlain’s newest eyeshadow duo’s, L’Ecrin 2 Coleurs (£30) are fairly slender sized heavy weight eyeshadow compacts with two colours in two textures (a matte and a glitter/shimmer or as they call it, a dazzling veil). There are 8 colours altogether, all in very tempting and interesting combinations which I really like. The colours are all called ‘Two —–’ something or another – there are at least 6 of the 8 palettes I would happily take […]
My final Nars Artist Palette to review is the American Dream palette. Of all the palettes I purchased (or got Mr C to purchase!) this was the one I was the most excited about getting in the post. The palette is quite shimmery with the exception of Bali which is a neutral matte brown. But more about the shade later.
Now on to my third palette this week for review; Pleasures of Paris / Douceurs de Paris. As mentioned in previous posts, I collect these Nars artists palettes, and I do really like them for their handy size and usually – winning combinations. As always Nars features colours from other Duos or Solos. I quite like how they do this as generally – not always – they pick the stronger colour of the duos! […]

Now that Stila has been relaunched in the UK I till feel nostalgia when I see a convertible colour or a lip […]
One of my birthday presents from Mr C was Nars’ limited edition blush palette, named Danmari. I used to collect Nars make up, these days less so but as soon as I saw this palette I knew I had to have it. It comes in a lovely gift box (as a side note the Nars website sends products extremely well packaged, in cardboard boxes that have foam stuck to them on the inside). The […]
Sometimes I get the urge to buy a palette that I missed out on on when it was first released. In this case it was Kose’s Visee Blackish Forming Eyes in B-5: Visee palettes are quite nice – sometimes great, sometimes just average. The Blackish Forming Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes are quite interesting because it’s quite rare that Japanese brands will have such bold, deep colours on offer.
The last time I was at a Paul & Joe counter, I wrote about how the SA shadowed my every step until I gave in a purchased all the items she wanted me to. This time, I was in the same store (Fenwicks, London) but the staff were new and they totally different. I was excited, so excited about going to a Paul & Joe counter to pick some Select Eyeshadows for a palette. I […]
