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 […]

Kiko Daring Game Collection

18 August 2014

About a week ago I realised it had been a while since we had seen a new collection from Kiko, then a few days later I started seeing the gorgeous pictures of the fall launch, the Kiko Daring Game collection and realised that they were obviously taking their time perfecting every element of this simply […]

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 […]

Nanshy Flat Top Brush and Blending Eye Shadow Brush

14 August 2014

I do love a good make-up brush and I’m always keen to try new brands.  I’d never heard of Nanshy before so I jumped at the chance to try something from their line of affordable make-up brushes.  I was sent two to try; the Flat Top Brush and the Blending Eye Shadow Brush.  The Nanshy […]

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher in Joy

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher in Joy

14 August 2014

The Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blushers have a bit of a cult following due to their ease of use and extremely flattering finish.  To the uninitiated, these liquid blushers are an extremely thin, oil-free, tinted liquid that are packed full of pigment.  You apply by taking a single drop (that’s seriously all you need!) and […]

Elemis Hydra Day and Night Creams

Elemis Hydra Day and Night Creams

13 August 2014

As I’ve said many times before, Elemis are one of the few brands that my skin always reacts well to regardless of the product; I don’t think I’ve tried a single Elemis launch that’s caused any kind of breakout or reaction which is saying something for skin as spot-prone as mine.  My skin is struggling […]

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars on the Go Palettes

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars on the Go Palettes

12 August 2014

I had to write about these fabulous multi-purpose sets, the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars on the Go palettes, as they’re such great edits with colours that I would actually use  in extremely easy formulas.  Each palette contains a shade of metallic, cream eyeshadow along with a lip and cheek cream, so the products benefit from quick […]

Code VLM Volumising Lengthening Mascara

Code VLM Volumising Lengthening Mascara

12 August 2014

There was a time when mascara was my ultimate beauty product and the one thing I couldn’t say “no” to; it was my desert island product and no matter how much make-up I had on, if I wasn’t wearing mascara then I felt naked.  However, recently I’ve started suffering from mascara fatigue and I think […]
