Estee Lauder Color Envy Lipstick in Insolent Plum


I have already reviewed a few colours from the glorious Estee Lauder Colour Envy Lipstick range; now I have a new pretty colour to review; an very dark, rich purple.  I am in love with these dramatic colours at the moment even though they seem scary in the tube, they do have a lot of impact.   Insolent Plum is one of the darkest colours in the current Color Envy collection. It is a deep rich […]

The Balm Cindy-Loud Manizer Highlighter Review


I never thought of myself as someone who has time to use a highlighter in my make up routine, and day to day, I don’t, but for special occasions – why not?!  I do have a problem with finding the right tone highlighter – I have a light bronze (Dior), and golden peach (3CE) and now, a Cindy-Lou Manizer – yes, that’s what it’s called!  This product is from the ever creative, The Balm: Cindy-Lou […]

Clever Sun Protection! Susan Posnick Brush on Block Mineral Sunscreen Review


The sun has got it’s hat on today, so I’ve decide to quickly let you know about this extremely clever little sunscreen in tube thing!  This Instant Mineral Sunscreen is a powder – in a sense nothing new because a lot of mineral make up is known for it’s SPF properties.  This product however looks tinted but doesn’t show up on the skin as a colour and can be used on the whole family (from […]

Holika Holika Heartful Moisture Lipstick and Silky Lipstick Review; SRD 802 and Kissing Red RD808


I purchased both of these Holika Holkia lipsticks a while ago, and never got round to using them. They’re so cute! I thought. But never got around to using them. Well I decided recently to crack open a lot of products I have left lingering, so here they are – the Heartful Lipstick collections.  They are both mini sized, so handy for the handbag, and are cut in the shape of hearts – SWEETS!  There […]

Crabtree & Evelyn English Honey & Peach Blossom Hand Cream Review


Every tube of hand cream I receive is stolen, just as all the Jaffa Cakes I buy are, by Mr C.  The poor thing has sort, chapped hands because of eczema, psoriasis (arrghhh spelling confusion) and dermatitis.  According to the Drs he’s had all three. Though his hands are on the mend he still needs to regularly moisturise to prevent cracking.   He uses a selection of creams, and knows instantly if something isn’t right […]

Darphin Paris Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood Review


Ah! I’ve had this Darphin cleanser FOR-EVER and since it is on it’s last legs, it must mean it’s time to give it a review before it goes to empty skincare heaven.  Darphin is a French Skincare brand, one of those high end, luxurious spa feel brands, not unlike Decleor, Elemis et al.  The other brands stand out more to me, but Darphin should not be ignored! They have some really lovely products. Like this […]

Urban Decay Black Eyeliners; 24/7, Ink For Eyes, All Nighter Eyeliner


Kate Middleton loves black eyeliner and so do I.  You can’t beat a good black eyeliner, it can be used as dramatically or naturally (i.e. just between the lashes) as you like! I have always been a big fan of the 24/7 Urban Decay pencil range (I am sure I nearly have all the colours) – what I did not know was that there are a lot of varieties of black eyeliner if various consistencies […]

Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush and Bronzer Brush Review


Pixiwoo’s Real Techniques make up brushes are a really rather impressive range of brushes, considering the price point they are at. You may take it for granted now, but I remember being a teenager and not being able to find any decently priced good make up brushes (I ended up with The Body Shop ones that shed everywhere).  Anyway the Real Techniques range is expanding all the time and now there are some retractable brushes! […]
