I bought three face powders from eBay a while ago from the Korean brand Etude House: There are 6 powders in the range each with a different function. 1 – Highlighter (for use on the outer V around the eyes, t-zone etc. with a pearl finish) 2 – Model Shade (a matte bronze for contouring but also as a bronzer) 3. Walking Pink (pale pink blush or brightener) 4 – Style Pink (deeper pink blush) […]
As regular readers will know, I am obsessed with Skinfood, a Korean brand that has lots of unusual make up and skincare combinations. Next up is the Salmon Dark Circle Concealer and Brightening Powder! According to some, the ideal shade of concealer is not yellow or beige for dark circles – its salmon. I generally don’t like Salmon – do you? I like Sashimi (raw salmon) as long as its the freshest, nicest salmon you […]
My skin has been horribly dry and crusty for a while (switching skincare around – again) so I have been scouring the forums, looking for the must have powder. I have found that Armani’s Micro Fil Powder has had consistently good reviews so I bought it for around £28 (I think it was, I remember thinking – how much!?). Here it is: On the counter I only saw three shades, 0, 1 and 2 so […]

Cle De Peau is like Wentworth Miller. If he is in the room, no one else matters. If Cle De Peau is in my make up bag, other brands can suck on it…(Oh, I’m speaking in hyperbole. Don’t be mad at me little Nars. Mwah, Mwah.) Their stuff is stomach churningly expensive, but so gorgeous, so worth it most of the time. I have wanted their contour defining powder for ever but did not want […]
Contouring, I find, makes a big difference to the face, even if its just a quick bit of shading and highlighting. I bought this unusually names Top 10 V-Line Maker from Ebay, by Korean brand Etude House. As well as being a bronzer, its also a ‘V Line’ maker – V line? Do they mean cleavage enhancer? It there’s one place I don’t need enhancing, its there! How to use? Etude House have given us […]
Released for Spring 2009 , RMK have some new base products. I am a big fan of the creamy foundation…it’s my second fav after La Mer’s. On the RMK site it says: It looks like there is a main powder and a highlight shade? I like the fact that there is a sponge for the first application and a brush for topping up through the day. The shades: I am a 103 in the winter, […]
As the weather rises (and shall rapidly fall again – no doubt about that) I realised I was beginning to look like a sweaty betty. I don’t love face powders at all – most look cakey on me, so I was looking for something with good coverage yet light with staying power. Then I found Clearlast powder, from B&C Labs, Japan.
