As seasoned as I am on make up counters, there are times, when faced with a full frontal Sales Assistant attack that I just cannot defend myself. She’s too scary. She’s too forceful. She’s too good at giving me reasons why I need her product. She is already calculating what to spend her bonus on. […]
Just a few days ago I was defending our dear Catherine Zeta Jones against the nasty Daily Mail who were calling her old, haggard and using a clearly photoshopped image (other photo editing software is available). And then, this: Ok, ok let’s calm down. She was in the Darling Buds of May!!! Therefore, I refuse […]
The blog refit is coming along slowly but surely. Lots of testing going on. With a refit comes hopefully, lots of new things. But I am always very very interested to know what I blog about that bores you and what interests you. Its poll time!
I was doing a bit of sympathy shopping the other day (sympathy for whom you ask? Why, for myself!) and decided to buy a few things from Boots as opposed to Harvey Nichols (everything they give me is always slightly faulty anyway), in a faux ‘look how frugal I’m being’ stance. I purchased three items […]
Just seen a report on the news (must be a quiet day) about how women are ‘downsizing’ their handbags. Downsizing….hand…..bag…..DO. NOT. COMPUTE. I have a bad back and shoulders as it is with my enormous Chi-Chis so I have been trying to downsize. I bought the Alexander Wang Coco Duffel Bag which is much smaller […]
Halp! So I am thinking this year I really will take the plunge and put a video together, but I have no idea what to do first. I am guessing this takes a while to put together properly, so before I start, I’d like to ask what kind of video you’d like to see…. Merci!
This may have been something I’ve asked you before but I want to be sure – how many posts do you want to see on Cosmetic Candy? I generally do at least 3 posts a day, but somedays I may go nuts and post 15! But then do you have time to read these? Do […]
No, no, no, no, no. I thought this was a joke. But Nicole Kidman doesn’t strike me as a ha-ha-ha kinda chick. In times like these, there’s only one thing we can do – a poll.
Good Afternoon, my beauties! I have so, so much to post about, I just don’t have the time to do it all. Stuff coming up include my 24 Carat Gold Facial, and a super sparkly Tutorial look. Also lots of gift recommendations etc. etc. Hopefully, you are enjoying the December Posts even if there aren’t […]
Believe it or not, I am a little obsessed with make up. When my make up obsessions take hold there is no stopping me. I go through fads. I am that chick that has a breadmaker, a yogurt maker, a doughnut maker and an exercise bike. I buy things in threes. I buy entire ranges […]
So lets talk make up brands. I do try to vary things up as much as I can on the blog. I have a real love for Asian cosmetics of course, which is one of the reasons I started blogging in the first place, but I do love popping onto my local make up counters […]
Every now and then I order some Japanese magazines to read – my favourites are Maquia, Voce and Biteki. This month they were pretty naff, but nevertheless I couldn’t help but start lusting over some pretty, pretty skincare after seeing their adverts. It got me thinking – what Skincare, if money were no object would […]
Ok, preparing for the Christmas period and the posts: So help me out here girls, and let me know what you want to see on Cosmetic Candy in the poll!
I have been planning the Christmas gift guide for Cosmetic Candy for a week and I have been making a list (and checking it twice) today, in regards to Christmas and what presents I would have to waste my money on buy this year. I find gift buying very easy and it makes me deliriously […]
Its nearly November…which means its nearly…C….C….Ch…Christmas… Have lots of lovely festive posts coming up although I am usually more of a Bah Humbug type. Done pretty much all of my Christmas shopping and got my paws on lots of Christmas collections. But I don’t want to overload you before its time to tell me in […]
Judging by the conversations I’ve had lately, everyone’s taste in what they deem as beautiful seems to vary a lot these days. It got me thinking, who do other people think are beauties, and why* *You can’t say your mum. We get it, you love your mum, but its not cliché day. I personally like […]
