I’m so excited about this *amazing* upcoming QVC TSV (today’s special value) from Tarte as I don’t think Tarte have done a TSV before, so this one is a glorious collection of goodies that make for a very impressive […]

OPI ColorPaints Blendable Nail Lacquer

OPI ColorPaints Blendable Nail Lacquer

21 May 2015

The OPI ColorPaints (keep wanting to write “ColourPaints”…) are a brilliant new arrival that I think are going to create quite a buzz when they launch later this year.  They’re a collection of eight sheer colours and one silver base coat, with the idea being that they lack the opacity, so they can blend and […]

Ghost Whisper Rain Perfume

Ghost Whisper Rain Perfume

20 May 2015

I’ve heard of Ghost fragrances but I’ve never really tried them myself, so I was pleasantly surprised by their newest launch, Ghost Whisper Rain, which, if you can ignore the cheesy title, ticks all the boxes with regards the aesthetics and scent.  The bottle itself is a beautiful pearlescent number that my rubbish photography skills […]

Mavala Garden Party Nail Collection

Mavala Garden Party Nail Collection

20 May 2015

When I was growing up, my local chemist was where I did most of my beauty perving, and amongst many other brands, they stocked Mavala.  I remember eyeing the dinky little bottles and thinking how much I wanted all the pinks…so clearly my tastes haven’t developed at all in the last 20 years, as I […]

Teddy: Childs Farm Body Products

Teddy: Childs Farm Body Products

20 May 2015

I’ve been a fan of Childs Farm products for quite a while and actually used quite a few of them on Teddy before I was sent the above trio.  Childs Farm is a very well priced and accessible (they’re stocked at Boots) range of products designed to be extremely gentle to young skin, but not […]

Scinic 7in1 Mist Cushion Foundation

Scinic 7in1 Mist Cushion Foundation

19 May 2015

On to the second post in my series on cushion foundations (if you missed my first post on the Iope Air Cushion foundation, here it is) and it’s another great foundation that provides decent coverage alongside a whole host of other benefits – I can’t wait until the UK cushion foundations cotton on to the […]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

Quick Pick Tuesday: Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

19 May 2015

It seems a bit ridiculous having something as iconic as the Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Lotion (Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner) as a quick pick, since it’s such a fantastic product that deserves lots of space for raving, but I’m currently putting together a feature on exfoliating toners in general, so it’ll get it’s time then.  It […]

Simple Skincare #KindIsSimple Pop-Up Store (London Only)

Simple Skincare #KindIsSimple Pop-Up Store (London Only)

19 May 2015

Whenever I see, hear or discuss the Simple skincare brand, I always think of an ad from the late 80’s where the main message throughout is “not perfumed, not coloured, just kind”.  This is and has always been the key message and philosophy of the brand’s products, and so, over 20 years later, it makes […]

Mask Monday: Caudalie Purifying Mask

Mask Monday: Caudalie Purifying Mask

18 May 2015

Having tried 2 out of 4 of the main Caudalie masks, I can safely say that Caudalie masks are very, very good – check out my review of the Caudalie Glycolic Peel here – or at least 50% of them are, anyway…I also really like the fact that they’re designed to work with each other; as […]

Four More Facial Sprays

Four More Facial Sprays

18 May 2015

I have a bit of a strange relationship with facial sprays as, unless it’s an extremely hot day and I’m in desperate need of some quick cooling, I don’t actually like the sensation of spraying something ice cold on to my face, yet I can’t recall the last time I had a routine that didn’t […]

Five Things I Love: April 2015

Five Things I Love: April 2015

16 May 2015

Two months in a row! As you may well remember from last month’s post, I hadn’t done a monthly love list for quite some time, but there’s a lot to love at the moment so I happily put together my five favourites for the month of April, although I am a little late in publishing […]

Competition: 2 x Mavala Lip and Nail Bundles (Garden Party and Summer Party)

14 May 2015

If you follow me on Instagram (if not, here I am!) then you’ll know just how much I love, love, LOVE the Mavala Garden Party nail collection.  It’s a truly stunning six piece set of beautiful summer shades of lilac, pink and peach – to me it’s what a Summer collection should be and every […]

Glossybox May 2015

Glossybox May 2015

14 May 2015

I’m not 100% sure on the May 2015 Glossybox, to be honest.  It’s a strange one as I can’t really put my finger on what I don’t like, but I think it’s usually because there’s always at least one item I’m really excited to get stuck into, and whilst the Glossybox May 2015 contents is […]

Pixi Brow Powder Palette

Pixi Brow Powder Palette

13 May 2015

  I saw this on Instagram a while ago and thought at the time I really must post about it – I even did a screen-grab to remind myself before, of course, completely forgetting.  The Pixi Brow Powder Palette is nothing particularly new, yet it’s such a fantastically well executed concept.  The palette contains six […]
