Boo Hiss, No T’internet!


Sorry guys, my internet is still off. I am using a stolen borrowed dongle and can’t answer comments or anything like that. I am however, using my Twitter because I can use it on my phone (with a lot of difficulty!). Handy for if you need to know if your chicken is edible or not. Won’t be long, I’ll be back!

Bad Customer Service: Pak Cosmetics and the case of the solid face mask


A week or two ago, I purchased a number of items from Pak Cosmetics online, which sells all kinds of Afro Hair Care/Extension/Weave/Make Up products (they just sell a ton of stuff basically). I was all excited and rather impressed to begin with…everything seemed great, they even called me up on a Sunday to tell me something was out of stock and to pick an alternative. Then the order arrived. A few old looking jars […]

Non Make Up Related Rant: CSL Sofa Adverts are so bad, they makes me want to punch someone..

…or something. I mean sofa adverts are the scourge of the earth anyway but this CSL one is takes it to a whole new level. It’s trying to give you a narrative, a storyline, a la Nescafe Gold Blend and demonstrate the passing of time a la John Lewis except, John Lewis’s advert used effective editing and actors to demonstrate this, and also left you with a warm fuzzy feeling. This one uses unsubtle captions […]

Screw You!: Don’t use Fastway Couriers, they’re really really crap


Let me get this out before I have my dinner or I’ll have indigestion. So after loads and loads of trouble, I managed to find a business card company would would print some cards for me on the day and ship them out within 24 hours. I had to do a lot of research, make a lot of calls because not many companies will print that quickly for you. Basically I have an event on […]

Nescafe Green Blend Coffee tastes like all kinds of awful


Beep Beep – do excuse me for this non make up related post but I feel like this is a public health warning. I stumbled across this nice looking jar of coffee last week, called Nescafe Green Blend. The idea of this instant coffee is that its full of Antioxidants and is a mixture of green and roasted coffees. Healthy coffee? Sounds good to me. I am a coffee fiend, I love the stuff. First […]

Not a Review, more of a lament: My Clarisonic Face Brush Stopped Working *updated*


Update: 12/06/10 Was on the phone about 3 times to Clarisonic. Was supposed to be called back but had to chase them up and eventually Clarisonic said they’d send me a new UK charger to try. The charger came from the US, it only took about 4 days. Tried it out…and yes, it works! So it was the charger that broke, d’oh. Kudos to the Clarisonic customer service who sent out a new charger quickly […]

Rant: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine Lipstick Design Fault!


I own three Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shines in total, in a pink, a lilac and a glossy red. Cut a long story short: Pros: Gorgeous texture, gorgeous colour, just gorgeous to wear Cons: Not longwearing, expensive and the packaging! I don’t usually have a problem with the plastic casing of Shu Uemura Lipsticks – its quite retro and I don’t feel like I need opulence in every lipstick. However – these Supreme Shine […]

Unrelated to Beauty rant: Dodgy, much? review


Didn’t want to rant about random customer service experiences on here, but hey, I want to prevent anyone else from falling foul of using this god awful website called Stupid me – I though I had found a great deal for my mama and placed an order 11 days ago. Entered all her card details (she was sat next to me, oh internet police!) even though she was tentative about sharing card details (I […]
