eBay is such a great place for make up bargains! I picked up these two Paul & Joe Lip Glosses (they have been repackaged recently so look slightly different to the new ones) in Galaxie (a silver with glitter) and Passion (a juicy sheer red with glitter). I can never get enough of Paul & Joe packaging: I’m glad that Paul & Joe is easier to purchase these days, on various retail outlets. The silver […]
I’ve swatched Bloodwork by Nars a few times because its so unique. Its a shiny, almost vinyl finish deep red: My my my, you do have to be careful with this one because its so pigmented, so glossy and so red. But its unique and will give you such an amazing hot red lip! What do you think of bloodwork?
I am now the owner of three Shu Uemura Supreme Shine lipsticks – these don’t generally last too well but by god, they are absolutely – gorgeous – instant – sex – bomb. Newest addition is RD 165 which they call a ‘Universal Red’. Glossy, sheer reds are my bag. I am too chicken to wear bright, matte, opaque red lipstick out day to day – there I said it. I’m not Coco Chanel, I […]
I went nuts of Dolce & Gabbana make up when it was first launched in the UK – since then my interest has subsided. I’d still like to see what collections they come up with though, cos its a really nice looking brand. I got this red lipstick from Dolce & Gabbana a while ago – its a creamy rich red like…the Devil. The packaging is this lovely gold case which also gets lots of […]
I reviewed an Ellis Faas Cream eyeshadow earlier this week – and it was quite nice although I wasn’t convinced by the colour. Here is a Milky Lips lip colour (not a lipstick, not quite a lip gloss) in Ellis Red, a classic blood red shade. There are 2 other textures – Glazed Lips (glossy) and Creamy Lips (rich and creamy…sounds like my kind of lip!). Once again, its that phallic…slightly skinny phallic bullet lip […]
Got some bits and pieces from Boots No. 7 to review shortly, but this was too pretty not to share with you sooner! There are only 2 shades in this lipstick, this rosy sheer red and a more neutral brown-rose. The texture is excellent – pigmented yet sheer, it has that ‘water’ feeling Japanese lipsticks do. The colour is of course, an acquired taste. I like it, I think this would look pretty hot on […]
Reader, Nina, sent me this question weeks ago and I have only just had time to answer it. Sorry Nina! Nina was looking for a red lipstick from Illamasqua – “…a clean true red that won’t make me look sallow.” I think its pretty hard to recommend something as specific like this – you never know how the red may turn on your skintone. Firstly I don’t own all the Illamasqua reds, I think, but […]
Today I need some colour. My face needs some oomph. Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rouge Preciosa is on my lips and is got a stunning texture, SPF 12 and Pro-Xylane. I don’t know what that is, but I like it! It looks darker in the tube than it does on my lips… I am just having one of those weeks I’m afraid, if my sombre tone comes across in posts, then please accept my […]
