More Cargo today! Pigments stain fabrics. Fact. I don’t own any sheets that haven’t been sprinkled with the stuff. Pigment….glitter…..everywhere…… I picked up this set in the sale at my local Supermarket for about £7. I love mini sized everything, so this was ideal: I bought the cream shadow version of this once from QVC but I didn’t like it so I sent it back. The beauty of being able to return cosmetics. Want to […]

I have never tried any full sized products from Lily Lolo (a UK based Mineral make up brand). Love the name, like the look of the brand…I’d like to think there is actually a lady out there called Lily Lolo, dancing on a beach and thinking of concepts and packing the little pots full of pigment for me…. I finally got my hands on this pigment eyeshadow in Deep Purple to try: Cute packaging, check. […]
I love digging out little new brands from all over the world – makes a change to always talking about the big boys. Lumiere Cosmetics from the US has a nice little selection of eyeshadows and pigments, mineral foundation, blushers etc. I got a few bits, starting with the pressed shadows are a real stand out to me – very very soft and pigmented – I got plum and green ($9 each): I also got […]
Love pigments? Me too! As long as its easy to get to and I’m not spilling powder all over my sheets, then I’m happy. I was pleased to find these Bellapierre Mineral Shimmer Stacks, which have 9 shades in one tall stack: There are a few combinations – I choose Pandera, which has the darker, smoky palette – a mixture of greens, blue and browns. No. 1: A warm gold olive: See the rest of […]
I don’t own very much from bareMinerals and to be honest, I prefer pressed powder everything over loose – generally speaking. However I am a lover of green so bought myself this set called Beauty Oasis: So for £24 you get 3 eyeshadows – so thats £8 each. Not particularly cheap, not madly expensive.

So last week my mama called to say I had a mysterious package in a black envelope at home. Black envelopes = Illamasqua…but I hadn’t ordered anything. Turns out to be a lovely surprise as Illamasqua sent me one of their new Powdered Metals (released officially on the 13th July). When I heard powdered metals I presumed they were for the eyes but these are actually more all rounders – hair, skin, eyes, face. There […]
