Studio 10 Age Reverse Perfect Canvas

Studio 10 Age Reverse Perfect Canvas

23 January 2015

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I’ve raved about Studio 10 as I really do love their small but perfectly formed range of products.  I’m someone who likes natural, flattering finishes – dewy, gently contoured skin, lightly defined eyes and pretty pink/peach lips is my […]

Gosh Cosmetics Primers

Gosh Cosmetics Primers

23 January 2015

Look at them all! Did you know Gosh did so many primers? I honestly had no idea, but I do love me a good primer so I was happy to be tasked with the opportunity to have a play with them all and share my thoughts, which is timely considering they all seem to currently […]

Quick Look: Relaunched Boots No7 Cosmetic Brushes

Quick Look: Relaunched Boots No7 Cosmetic Brushes

22 January 2015

This is just a super quick heads-up along with a couple of photos of the newly relaunched Boots No7 make-up brushes as I will be writing-up them up in more detail soon! I’m a big fan of No7 brushes and I think they’re often overlooked; the brush set from the Christmas collection (post here) contained […]

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

22 January 2015

Last year I had the pleasure (!!) of enjoying a session of afternoon tea suspended 100 feet above the South Bank to find out more about the newest member of the NARS family, the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.  The event was insane – I still can’t decide whether I enjoyed it or not as […]

L’Occitane Shea Skincare: Cleansing Oil and Light Comforting Cream

L’Occitane Shea Skincare: Cleansing Oil and Light Comforting Cream

21 January 2015

I was very excited to hear that L’Occitane were adding a range of facial skincare to their Shea line as I love their Shea hand creams and lip balms (just seen on their site there’s a vanilla one – so getting that!) but the one thing I was a little concerned about was the Shea […]

Manicure and Pedicure with CitySwish (London Only)

21 January 2015

As of 2015, Teddy’s dad has been able to start having him for a few hours on a Sunday which allows me a few hours to do whatever I want.  The first of these Sundays was a couple of weeks ago and I had a day of true indulgence that started with a fry-up and […]

Clinique Chubby Stick Scuplting Contour and Sculpting Highlight

Clinique Chubby Stick Scuplting Contour and Sculpting Highlight

21 January 2015

The excitement over contouring is showing no signs of waning which is no bad thing since it’s a great and relatively easy make-up skill to acquire.  I think 2015 will see it all go a few steps further with a fully contoured face involving very few products to add shadow and light on the face, […]

Mask Monday: Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask

Mask Monday: Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask

19 January 2015

Recently my skin has been having a tough time with the weather, lack of sleep and central heating and even though I’m definitely still spot-prone, my skin will very suddenly dry out, go very tight and itch like crazy – it’s a very abrupt occurrence and is every bit as fun as it sounds! Enter […]

Chidem Beauty Moisture Therapy Cleansing Beauty Balm

Chidem Beauty Moisture Therapy Cleansing Beauty Balm

16 January 2015

The battle for decent skin continues with my skin doing it’s regular flip from feeling very dry and itchy to spotty and a little oily…then back again.  Honestly it is the most nightmarish balancing act that I do think has got progressively worse since my pregnancy, but that’s just speculative – it could be various […]

Nicky Clarke Diamond Shine Pro Salon Straighteners

Nicky Clarke Diamond Shine Pro Salon Straighteners

16 January 2015

I was really impressed with the Nicky Clarke Volume Kit I tried a few months ago (as a side-note, I let my mum try the kit and she’s now a total convert – she has very fine hair and this range is one of the few that actually made an impact) so I couldn’t wait […]

B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colour in Alecia and Prom

B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colour in Alecia and Prom

16 January 2015

B. launched in Superdrug to considerable fanfare due to innovative formulas and well edited colours that punched far above their mid-range price point.  I missed out on the B. love due to my lack of local access to Superdrug, so I’ve only really had a chance to experience the brand quite recently.  I was sent a […]

Another perfectly timed and perfectly formed collection has launched from Bobbi Brown, the Illuminating Nudes, which are every bit as lovely as they sound; products in muted, nude tones designed to add a hint of enhancement and a nuance of colour, perfect for anyone who prefers to look well rather than well made-up. January is the […]

NOTD: Nars Roman Holiday

15 January 2015

It’s been absolutely ages since I did a NOTD post, mostly because I tend to just post my nail pics on Instagram now (so do follow me here if you can’t handle a life without knowing what colour my nails are…) but I thought I’d share with you a post on the Nars Roman Holiday […]

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette

Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette

15 January 2015

What is it about a beautiful palette of eyeshadows that gets everyone going so easily? Is it just the excitement of such a high concentration of make-up in one portable collection? Or maybe it’s how it can get the creative juices flowing with the suggestion of possibility; think of all the looks you can create! […]

InPost #ShareTheBeauty Pass the Parcel

14 January 2015

When InPost got in touch with me to see if I’d be interested in spending £200 on beauty products to send to another beauty blogger, whilst also having a beauty blogger spend the same amount on me, I had to do it really, didn’t I? I quickly realised that I take just as much pleasure […]
