Rimmel Glam Eyes Trio in Tempting

Another focus on a specific shade of a product today, but this time it's an eye shadow palette; one of the seven variants of Rimmel Glam Eyes Trio in the shade collection called Tempting.  Tempting is a green themed edit with two shades of green and one ivory shade for highlight and contour.  I don't think I've ever used a green eyeshadow on myself in my entire life, but recently I've started to try and be a bit more experimental with shades so[...]

My Current Skincare Routine (July 2013)

My skin is crazy, as anyone who knows me/follows the blog/follows me on Twitter will know.  When the pregnancy started my skin, for whatever reason, just completely drained of moisture for the first couple of months which was novel for someone who's so used to oily skin.  Now it's back to it's old tricks with some serious oiliness and hormonal breakouts, but nothing too major or painful thanks to the routine that I'm sticking with at the moment.[...]

Five Amazing Brow Pencils for Ashy Colourings

GOSH Smokey Eye Liners

Here we have a quick look at what is probably my favourite part of GOSH's AW13 collection, the Smokey Eye Liners.  GOSH Smokey Eye liners are available in four shades: 01 Smokey Black, 02 Smokey Brown, 03 Smokey Plum and 04 Smokey Blue.  I zoned straight in on the Smokey Plum variant and it''s interesting how it actually works a lot better on the eyes than it does in the swatch below. GOSH have got the balance just right with these smokey[...]
