I love a good glittery shimmery gloss and lipstick – I really do because if there’s one place you can wear it without looking like you’re doing an impression of a disco ball, it’s on your lips! I think?! Make Up Atelier Paris’ Starshine Lip Gloss is a lesser heard of product than say, MAC Dazzleglass, but if you are feeling a bit low on your glitter factor, then this nifty gloss will keep you […]
Urban Decay’s newest lipstick is the Revolution Lipstick – a ‘Baddass, pigment rich, creamy, long-lasting, hydrating’ formula. If you want pigmented and fun, let’s face it, Urban Decay is a pretty good bet. I have two colours here to show you today: The packaging of the Revolution Lipstick to me looks expensive and has a more grown up feel than previous Urban Decay lipsticks (you know the fun ones with the dagger?!). It reminds me […]
There’s no nicer make up treat then a fancy lipstick and what could be nicer than a lipstick from By Terry – the ultra luxe range with some pricy but really gorgeous products. I have never tried a By Terry lipstick or lip gloss before, so this is all new to me. These Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge lipsticks are supposed to be somewhere between a lip balm and a plumping lip colour. The colour is shiny […]
I have a huge soft spot for Top Shop nail polishes – for the price, I think the range is good and it applies nicely too. I picked up two colours recently in lieu of one Chanel polish! I think I was trying to replicate Chanel’s Particuliere and Peridot. I kinda failed, but still, it was fun trying!
EX1 Cosmetics is a range of make up created by Farah Naz, who is British Asian, and wanted to create a range of products suitable for ‘exotic’ skintones after being frustrated at what the high street had to offer. The brand uses the term ‘exotic’, and by that, they are meaning Asian (which in the UK tends to refer to Indian and Pakistani races), Middle/Far-Eastern or Mediterranean complexions. We are talking about quite a specific […]
Mr C kindly gifted me a number of Nars palettes, so I have finally had a chance to play with them all and am going to share my swatches and thoughts on each one this week. Each of the Artist palettes are LE, although they do in my experience, take a while to disappear from the official Nars websites. There are ones on there I bought years ago which they told me were LE but […]
Some people prefer lipsticks, some people prefer lip glosses. I am a lover of all lip products so I am easy…but one thing that eludes me is a truly wearable matte lipstick. As a bearer of naturally dry lips, I do struggle with finding a suitable long wearing or/and matte lip product. Everything dries them out. Enter the Burberry Lip Velvet Longwear Lipstick… They say: Burberry innovation brings a new finish for lips: a velvety […]
Months and months ago Becca had an online sale and I purchased some loose powder and these Pressed Shimmer Powder Compacts – they are actually due to be discontinued so are still half price at the moment (£15). They say: A delicately fine shimmer powder that lights up the complexion, illuminating darkened areas and lackluster skin and creating a magical glow that emanates from within. I am a real fan of Becca products – I […]
