Quick Bobbi Brown Swatches

dscn8909

I was so desperate to see the BB palettes that I went to my local counter last night.  The main palette (Lip and Eye) with red on the lips and golds on the eyes had sold out already. I tried out the velvet plum palette was was ok – the shade Velvet Plum, the rest […]

Man Friday! I nearly forgot!

paul-newman-bw2

…not that anyone cares but me and Kitty but still… This week there was only one man it could be: The late, great Paul Newman. He passed away last week, leaving his much beloved wife, Joanne Woodward and 5 daughters, 2 from a previous marriage. Apart from being so handsome it actually hurts to look […]

Bobbi Brown Christmas Palettes are HOT!

yawn10

Bobbi Brown palettes usually make me go: Especially the nudes. Nude on nude. Simmering Nudes. Twilight Nudes. Neutral Nudes. Yawn. Yawn. Yawn. Raspberry Palette is nice. Mauve Palette is nice. The Nudes are just ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Anyway the new Xmas palettes are just beautiful! Golds on the eyes, Reds on the lips. Lovely. Now I am […]

SASA Haul – Heel Razors, Tomato Masks and Acne Powder

dscn8880_s

I’m not a regular at SASA for Asian cosmetic related goodies. Perhaps because I think it isn’t that cheap and a lot of what they sell can be found on other stores and Ebay. However, I can’t fault the speedy and efficent service and the well packaged boxes that reach my desk. You can get […]

HQ Hair are crap, crap, crap

Because shopping online isn’t stressful enough, HQ Hair makes it much worse.  Despite the fact it is a pretty large company with a strong online presence, HQ Hair has never, ever ever ever had outstanding – or even good customer service. Well I am seriously annoyed this time.  I have been waiting and waiting for […]

Man Friday: Wentworth Miller

wentworth_miller-1

Prison Break is one of the worst shows in terms of dialogue, plot and acting in the WORLD after Hollyoaks.  But there is a reedeming light in the show and he is called Wentworth Miller. Who the hell is called Wentworth anyway?  It doesn’t matter when you look like this: Wentworth has the right mix […]

Buying from Ebay – when is NEW, new?

dscn8802_s

I gave up selling on Ebay the day that I got a £180 fee for selling relatively few items, and then I was told I wasn’t allowed to leave negative or neutral feedback for buyers.  Sure, some buyers are great.  But some are vindictive too.  Instead I use it for buying and rarely selling and […]

I hate Primark

Yes I do. Incase you don’t know what Primark is, its a cheap budget fashion store in the UK.  It used to be naff as hell, but fair play, it now produces a lot of on trend fashion with a quick turnaround and lots and lots of choice.  As a result it is ALWAYS busy.  […]

Nars Makeover; Skin Tips etc.

dscn8770_s

For no reason other than boredom, I went to my Nars counter the other day for a make over. I have been eyeing up Blade Runner for ages…a dark forest green with a copper. My SA, Leena at Nars is amazing. She smells nice too (Nars Monoi Oil I’m told – its expensive – £42 […]

SANA Make Essence Concealer

dscn8734_s

Ok, ok I admit it.  I wanted this product badly because there’s a sleepy bear on the front. SANA is a Japanese brand with some real gems in its collection. This is one of them – oh yes. I’ve tried quite a few random dark circle goods from Japan; and I disliked most of them.  […]

Perfect Peach! Nars Barbarella Lipstick

cuar02_jolie08071

So Angelina looks divine in this photo, no? her lips look perfect and I have been lusting after a similar look and my favourite artist (weirdly enough) gives me peach lips when I was thinking peach in my head! More of that makeover soon. But I have found the most perfect peach: It’s hot.  Isn’t […]

Sunday Shop: RMK Beige Lip Gloss & Lipstick

lipstick

RMK 80s colour collection is really nice.  Reeaaallllyyy niceee. I apoligize for the rubbish photos.  Today I picked up: RMK Gloss in 32 which a super sparkly gold-nude.  I also have 34 a rose-brown which is a stunner – the texture is non sticky and very flattering. Its a super shimmery beige, and its the […]

Shop Review – Space NK

712_apothecary

Space NK Apothecary is an upmarket beauty and skincare store in the UK.  So why don’t I live there?  There are two stores in my city, easily accessible, yet I rarely step foot in the store – in fact its my last choice of shop to buy my goodies. Here are some reasons why; Note […]

Paul & Joe Sweetie Pallette 02

dscn8662_s

I spotted a bargain at ASOS.com – the Paul & Joe Sweetie palette reduced to £12.  (Before I carry on I dislike Asos intensely for their crap returns policy and the immense possiblities their clothes come in.  I do look cos I like the styling of their outfits and they have nice accessories). So ASOS […]

Nars Make Over with Uzo

226uzo08_vertical

I went along to the Nars Selfridges event today, with the Make Up Artist Uzo. Uzo is one of Nars’s international artists, and has worked with all the stars… A very charming and nice lady who exuded confidence…the other Nars guys and gals were clearly in awe. Anyway, I sat my bum down in the […]

Aube Haul (Coil Mascara & Lipstick) etc.

dscn8581_s

I had a little dabble in Esprique’s new base and some Aube products today. Aube is brand that I always seem to purchase and 85% I’m not that happy with the goods.  I have the other Aube Mascaras and they do nothing for me – too much lash floppage. This is the new comb – […]

Hidden Gem: Integrate Shiseido Long and Volume Mascaras

long

I have a box, called the BNIBB. The Brand New In Box Box. It’s where I keep all my new packaged goods that I haven’t had the chance to use or been able to bring myself to use yet like… Limited edition Majolica Majorca Mascaras…. The whole MAC barbie collection…… The Disney Paul & Joe […]

Help Ladies!

I’ve been saying for a long time I will finally organise the haul hopefully, it will be a useful swatch for people.  I’m torn between photographing everything separately or in groups? ie. all Nars blushers together.  Or would you prefer everything separate? Once I get started I’ll try and do everything in one go (yes, […]

Shu Uemura Instinct Collection

dscn8449_s

Recently, though I have liked what Shu has to offer, I haven’t loved it. Infact the last few collections over the last year have been hit and miss; too dull, too hard, too chalky. I was ready to pass on the Instinct Collection too but then….I found out one side was a cream eyeshadow! I […]
