L’Occitane Ultra Soft Balm

L’Occitane Ultra Soft Balm; before we’ve even started just that name makes you want to use it, doesn’t it? Well fear not, as it is every bit as lovely as it sounds, in more ways than one.  The L’Occitane Ultra Soft Balm is a beautifully fragranced, multi-use balm that you’ll need to buy several tins […]

Valeur Absolue Sensualite EDP

Valeur Absolue Sensualite EDP

04 March 2015

Sometimes I come across a product that is so fantastically well executed that everything about it is a joy; with that in mind, let me introduce you to the perfumes from Valeur Absolue, which are as pretty to look at as they are to sniff. The perfume bottle is a pretty traditional, slightly squared off […]

GOSH Spring/Summer 2015

03 March 2015

GOSH really know how to do new collections don’t they?

Mask Monday: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Mask Monday: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

02 March 2015

Apologies for the rubbish picture quality – I haven’t quite nailed taking pictures of anything even remotely reflective yet, as you can see! I’ve waxed lyrical about the amazing Clinique Moisture Surge range which includes the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – you see brands? That’s how you name a product; a nice and simply descriptive […]

Birchbox March 2015

Birchbox March 2015

02 March 2015

Birchbox March 2015 is an interesting one, as it’s the first (that I can recall) box that’s allowing you to specify which sample you’d like.  It’s also a collaboration with uber-posh homeware champions, Habitat. There’s just one make-up item in the March 2015 Birchbox and the rest is a relatively good mix of beauty bits and […]

Nails Inc 15 Shades of Spring Deal

Nails Inc 15 Shades of Spring Deal

27 February 2015

I do love a beauty bargain and I also love it when Nails Inc do their polish promos as they often consist of great little edits of themed colours.  A good example of that is their 15 Shades of Spring collection which is up today and in limited supply, so if it’s your sort of […]

Too Faced Selfie Powders

Too Faced Selfie Powders

26 February 2015

I just saw this on Temptalia here and I had to share it with you – the Too Faced Selfie Powder palette.  It’s a bit of a gimmick, but I’m soooo getting it when it arrives in the UK.  The idea is that there are three different coloured setting powders that will give you the […]

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Sheer Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Sheer Lip Colors

25 February 2015

Now we come to my favourites from the Bobbi Brown Hot Collection, which are the Sheer Lip Colors.  I mentioned in my intro post here that I hadn’t tried any of the existing Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colors which is very strange considering just how much I love both Bobbi Brown and balmy lip products, but […]

Illamasqua Skin Base and Rich Liquid Foundations

Illamasqua Skin Base and Rich Liquid Foundations

23 February 2015

I tried the Illamasqua Skin Base a few years ago and didn’t get on with it at all, but looking back, I think this was mostly because I didn’t have the right colour plus I didn’t know how to prep skin.  The main issue I had with it was that it showed up dryness which […]
