MAQUillage True Eye Shadow BL231 Review and Swatches

MAQUillage-True-Eye-Shadow-BL231-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

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 […]

Kiko Cosmetics First Try: Smoky Look Eyeshadow, Water Eyeshadow and Smart Lipstick

Kiko-Cosmetics-First-Try_-Smoky-Look-Eyeshadow-Water-Eyeshadow-and-Smart-Lipstick-.jpg

My beautiful Italian friend, Anna, (THANK YOU!!!) went to…well, Italy, and came back with a rather impressive large block of cheese for me (Pecorino! It’s so strong, it’s the real thing!) and this rather lovely selection of Kiko Cosmetics – my first ever dabble in the range!  There is a Kiko flagship store in London now (Regent Street) but I am glad that I’ve avoided the hype so far and can now in a leisurely […]

Seventeen Instant Glow Cream Bronzer Review

Seventeen-Instant-Glow-Cream-Bronzer-Review.jpg

Do you remember that not too long ago, No. 17 became SEVENTEEN? I have to be honest, like an old person, I disregarded it and kept calling the brand, No. 17 because it had been that for so long, like how my mum called Cif Jif, or Mr C calls Snickers, Marathons.   Anyway, names aside, SEVENTEEN seems to have moved away from that dark blue packaging into sleeker black one although the feel is […]

Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden Palette Review and Swatches

Sleek-i-Divine-Garden-of-Eden-Palette-.jpg

The newest instalment of the Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palettes is called Garden of Eden, and rather appropriately, it comes in a snakeskin print box;  Sleek eyeshadow palettes are extremely good value of money, and come with a selection of 12 colours in each palette.  They are good quality too, with soft and pigmented colours (in the past, I’ve found the palettes a bit fragile because of how soft they can be).  Here’s a closer look at […]

Avon Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick Review

Avon-Ultra-Colour-Absolute-Lipstick-Review.jpg

Avon’s newest lipsticks is the Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick.  Oh come on, you’re thinking, aren’t you all Tom Ford and Suqqu? Yes. Yes I am. But I am a lipstick addict, and there’s nothing better than finding a cheap and cheerful gem of a lipstick, and you know what? I think these colours from Avon are really rather fabulous.  These Ultra Colour lipstick is supposed to be pigmented, and hydrating, infused with collagen, vitamin E, […]

Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid to Matte Lip Stain in Pink Velvet – Review and Swatch

Lime-Crime-Velvetine-Liquid-to-Matte-Lip-Stain-.jpg

Lime Crime’s newest instalment of the famous Velvetine colours is Pink Velvet.   If you don’t know what Velvetine lip colours are; they are HIGHLY pigmented liquid lip stains that leave a matte, ‘velvet’ like finish to the lips. I have tried the red one before and found it a little drying. But now I am back with this beautiful hot pink.   Here is the pretty packaging: I do love hot pink – I […]

Super Soft False Lashes! Esqido Mink Lashes

Esqido-Mink-Lashes.jpg

I am still rubbish at applying false eyelashes although I am trying – I really am – to apply them so that it doesn’t look like I’ve done my face in the dark.  As tempting as it is to buy 99p lashes from Home Bargains, there’s no doubt that better quality lashes (crucially, a soft band) are easier to apply and give a more natural, pretty finish. I find that my Asian eye shape is […]

VDL Festival Shadow Colour, Style in Sparkle Chocolat 208 and Sparkle Bronze 903 Review and Swatches

VDL-Festival-Shadow-Colour-Style-in-Sparkle-Gold-and-Sparkle-Bronze-Review-and-Swatches.jpg

I recently made a haul from VDL cosmetics, a Korean brand with quite a lot of interesting products and two of the eyeshadow products I got were VDL’s eyeshadows, specifically from the ‘Sparkle’ shades – the super glittery colours. I chose Sparkle Chocolat 208 and Sparkle Bronze 903; These eyeshadows come in boxes, and the actual cases are very similar if no identical to MAC solos. They are priced quite reasonably – I paid about […]
