There are definitely advantages to having a dedicated under eye concealer; lighter texture, light reflecting properties, hydrating qualities etc. I am partial to a liquid concealer (I love Nars, Jill Stuart, Origins in particular) but they are for my facial blemishes. I was pleased to try this eye concealer from luxe brand, Sisley, which is especially made for the under eye area. They say: This tinted concealer instantly camouflages dark circles and shadows to perfection, reduces puffiness […]
I really love using rich body oils that sink nicely into the skin after a shower (dry oils I have realised, don’t really suit my skin) so was happy to try out this Dermaoil product, which feels like it’s in the same vein as Bio Oil – it’s for skin repair and stretch marks. They say: Dermaoil Skin Repair & Anti-Stretchmark Oil is a topical specialist skincare product for anti-ageing, scars and stretch marks.Contains breakthrough […]
One of Bobbi Brown’s newer eyeliner additions is the Smokey Kajal Liners. I absolutely love eyeliners – it’s just an obsession I have, so was rather excited to try out these new releases. These Kajals are quite interesting to say the least. There are six shades; They say: “A new take on tradition-Bobbi’s inspiration for this highly pigmented, incredibly blendable formula comes from classic kohl eyeliners. Her reason? This richly coloured liner can be applied […]
Oh Jill Stuart. You create the most beautiful looking lipsticks in glossy textures, that are hard to resist. The newest lipstick to join the Jill Stuart family is ‘Lip Blossom’ and debuts with 10 shades. I adored their last lipstick releases - the texture is gorgeous – so I presumed this would be a winner too.
I am so happy, happy, happy, that I have Jo Malone’s Violets and Wisteria in my life. Why, I have a substantial perfume collection, but scents that I truly truly truly love are few and far between. But Violets and Wisteria? It speaks to me. It is very me. For reference, I love light floral and tea based scents, with a hint of musk. I’ve had this scent for months but i’ve waited till now […]
Magnetic Nudes from MAC is a collection of lip, cheek, eye and skin colours with a rich, metallic, smokey, rich edge. I have a selection of products here to review; So what did I think of this vast collection?
Launching this month (February 2014) is Estee Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, in twenty shades from nudes to pinks, to corals to red, to mauves, to plums, to berries…you get the idea.

Time-released Moisture Complex helps capture and seal-in hydration.Lips feel continuously moisturised throughout the day. Super creamy, glides on […]
I haven’t bought MAQUillage cosmetics in so long; it was one of the original Japanese brands that fuelled my love of high end cosmetics, and yet I struggle to find anything interesting from the brand. That’s because like many Japanese beauty brands, the range focuses on very wearable, subtle, shimmery, light textures – it’s practical, it’s perfect for the working woman, and yet it’s not that interesting for a beauty blogger to review. After such […]
