Yup so I’m sure you can imagine the sort of state I was in when these babies arrived; three glorious lip products in the most beautiful shades of pink – be still my beating heart etc, etc. The Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains have recently landed on UK shores and they are well worth getting excited […]

Illamasqua Once – AW14 Collection

Illamasqua Once – AW14 Collection

27 August 2014

I follow the Illamasqua story with great interest; a brand who started as a niche, indie and fairly “out there” make-up range that’s now far more high-street than I’m sure anyone ever anticipated, so they fight a constant battle between keeping their original indie fans happy whilst also giving their ever-growing, more commercial fans what […]

Aromatherapy Associates Indulgence Candle

Aromatherapy Associates Indulgence Candle

26 August 2014

You may have caught my mini ramble on Instagram last night regarding candles which was stimulated by the arrival of this glorious Aromatherapy Associates Indulgence Candle.  I realised yesterday that it had been well over a year since I lit a candle in my home, even though I absolutely love burning candles.  The reason being that […]

Undercover Colors: Beauty and the Battle Against Date Rape

Undercover Colors: Beauty and the Battle Against Date Rape

26 August 2014

A new type of nail polish has been created by a group of four students at North Carolina State University that detects date-rape chemicals in drinks; the person who’s wearing it just stirs the drink with their finger, then if the chemicals are present, the polish will change colour.  Isn’t that fantastic?  When I was […]

The Boots No7 AW14 collection is deep, dark and moody and based around colours of navy, black and berry shades.  It’s a small edit of 1 eye palette, 2 nail colours, 1 blusher and 2 lip shades, but it’s a lovely little collection that’s really on trend for the upcoming season. The new releases I’m most keen […]

Triple Threat Facial: Timesaver’s Edit

Triple Threat Facial: Timesaver’s Edit

21 August 2014

My obsession with the Triple Threat facial continues and even though I’ve been a bit rubbish at putting aside pampering time lately, I’m back in the game with this Triple Threat Facial for those who are short of time.  I realise that the whole TTF thing takes quite a bit of time commitment that not […]

New Biore Launches

New Biore Launches

19 August 2014

Biore are a brand who I think most would associate with nose strips – those oh-so-sexy stickers that you place on your nose, leave to dry before peeling off to hopefully yank out a load of blackheads – but did you know there are now eight products in the range? There are various choices of […]

Glossybox August 2014

Glossybox August 2014

18 August 2014

A few days ago Glossybox celebrated their 3 year global anniversary with a lovely new box style.  After a good hour of contemplation, I have concluded that the best way to describe the new box is “more boxy”, so I anticipate a call from the Glossybox creative team asking me to jump on board any minute […]

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Skincare

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Skincare

15 August 2014

I’ve always associated Elizabeth Arden skincare with a much older demographic due to the fact that their skincare is almost exclusively anti-ageing, so obviously the people who use it are likely to be showing signs of ageing and therefore of a certain age.  Consequently I’ve never delved to deeply into their skincare as I always felt […]
